    MSI GE62 reviews

    15.6" GE62 Apache-276 Gaming Notebook (Aluminum Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MSI Computer 15.6-Inch Laptop GE62 APACHE Left Lenovo and joined the MSI clan!Hello,Its been a couple of days since the purchase of this laptop and I've been awed by it! I initially had ordered a Lenevo Y50-70 UHD 4k from MS Store. Unfortunately, it had issues related to the screws falling and a poor display(yellow display issue). Also, the built quality of that laptop was not good. The plastic parts were of a poor quality. The designs were sticking out with sharp edges all around. I returned it and bought this! Awesome display(very low glare) and it has a good viewing angle. Despite of its high specs, the fan doesn't make a lot of noise. The keyboard is made to perfection with a good tactile feedback. Typing on this is a charm! The Steelseries engine is surely impressing others! I haven't been able to play much with it though. The settings and all may need some time to get used to. The mouse is satisfactory. I have not been able to get a hang of it. The scrolling and all would need some time to get adjusted. I've tested a few Virtual Machines(used VMWare Workstation 12) on this and the response given to me is commendable! The games I've tried so far are GTA-V and COD-Black Ops and it handled it with perfection! I played them with medium to high settings. I am still trying the best way to calibrate the settings. The upgrade to Windows 10 went smoothly. I would have been happier if this came with 16GB RAM cause it just has two slots in it. As of now, one slot is with 4GB RAM. Moreover, if Windows 10 Pro would have been included with this then it could have been targeted to some work-o-holics as well! Anyways, I am still very happy with its configuration and performance! MSI has surely tried and tested this one! The best has been delivered! Go for it, you won't be disappointed! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Gaming Laptop - Couldn't Be Happier! I bought the MSI GE62 to replace my ASUS G50 which I've had for years. After reading many customer reviews, I decided to go with MSI this time. I'm very glad I did. For the money, I believe this is the best laptop out there. I am a casual gamer and this laptop does exactly what I need. I play Sniper v3 on ultra and its incredibly smooth. I also play ESO with my kids and have not experienced any lag with the setting on high. Only upgrade I foresee is installing a m.2 SSD. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to say The hardware is phenonmenal, when it was working it was the best for its price. A week or so after arriving I'm hit with a 0xC000021a error that prohibits me from booting up, let alone repairing it. That's more a problem for windows 10 then the computer but this is my experience with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This was my first buy of MSI and it will definitely not be the last. The laptop is amazing. The build quality is very good, and the keyboard just leaves your jaws open for a while. I can easily run the latest games on 40 fps+ which is definitely smooth enough to have a good gaming experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid gaming notebokk One of the better value for money gaming laptop(if there is such a thing) available. Solid construction and nice finish. Despite its listed weight, it is not that bulky. I carry it every day and it is quite portable for me. Pros: 1. Quality components like : steel series keyboard, IPS display, etc 2. 960m nvidia graphics coupled with i7 processor means it can handle graphically demanding games. 3. 2 fans for better heat dissipation 4. Three modes: green, comfort and power which you can switch as per your needs. Cons : 1.power source required. Seriously this is a power hungry machine. Don't bank on the battery lasting you very long. 2. Kind of sucks that we can't add sata ssds...only m.2 ones. 3. Win 10. Can't say enough bad things about the OS. So that's it. Are there better options? Sure. But they are expensive. And at this point, all you are going to get is an incremental increase in performance, and the battery life is identical for these laptops. Also props to b & h. The product reached in 3 days(Sunday excluded).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought it in 2015. Now 2017. Working perfect. SteelSeries keyboard still new, lights are good. Battery is not bad. I can't say that the battery is good. Still no noise from cooling system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck! Bang for the buck! This is about the most powerful machine you're going to get in this price range.
