  • Poor quality was unacceptable for this price
    Reviewed by Tom - August 14, 2021

    MSI is usually known for the quality of their premium products, which is why I was saddened to find the quality control of this laptop to be a mess. First of all, there are 3 keys on the keyboard that just not work at all. Second of all, the hinge cover popped open after 2 hours of use, third of all, theres a large white spot on the screen that becomes apparent when the background is in darker colors. I don't know if the poor quality on this product was a sacrifice for its compact form factor, but I find it to be unacceptable. Do yourself a favor and skip this laptop.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Awesome specs, but poorly made
    Reviewed by Juanse - August 4, 2021

    This is the lightest laptop I found with such powerful specs and excellent price. It's a high end computer for gaming and professional usage. I was really excited when I got it. Was very happy the first few days, then I noticed a stain in the screen (not a dead pixel, more like a dried water drop) that could not be removed because it was inside. Only noticeable with grey background colors. It annoyed me so much that I had to exchange it. With the new product, the stain was gone, but this time I got one with faulty pixels on the right side of the screen, this time noticeable with dark colors. What are the odds of having two computers with faulty screens? After that I returned and went for a different brand. So sad to see such a beautiful and powerful laptop with faulty components or maybe is just my luck. Something else worth to mention is the factory seal sticker. If you want to upgrade the hard drive, you have void the warranty. Thankfully I notice the faulty screens before I updated the hard drive

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • best laptop to balance gaming and work
    Reviewed by tim - November 9, 2021

    I purchased this laptop because of the weight, style and the good components. Very satisfy ! it's light and powerful. I can carry it around all the time for work and also play some games when i have time. Doesn't look very gaming to make me look professional when i am at work which is good. Over all i like it so much.

  • Powerful but low battery life
    Reviewed by Harshil - December 1, 2021

    The laptop is light weight and powerful for its price range but the battery life is terrible. Barely last 2‐3 hours in idle state. While using it was 1.5 hours and gaming is less than 1 hour. Secondly, cooling system works well but it only kicks in while gaming or you have to manually configure (leaving it on until you turn off). Rest all time it heats up the laptop, even in idle state. This is main reason why it heats up so much with normal use. Graphic card also seems to utilize for normal operation. Heating issue needs to be optimized. Thirdly, there is no LAN port. Not that it matters in today's wireless world, but gaming is better over cabled connection. Forthly, screen quality is not optimal. There is minor screen bleed on edges, noticeable with dark backgroud. Also, the display panel is little delicate and thin. Can easily bend with little pressure. I fear it might affect display quality on long run.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Would give 6 Stars if I could
    Reviewed by Chris - November 10, 2021

    After owning other brands in the past few years, finally pull trigger and got this MSI Stealth 15M Gaming laptop. And the result? B-L-O-W-N A-W-A-Y! First off, this laptop is super thin/ light for such a powerful machine. The body feels very solid and well put together, it's very sleek looking while it's not trying too much like other gaming laptops. Bezel is thin on all 3 sides, however, bottom part is quite thick, but it's not a deal breaker. The unique hexagon shape ventilation grills make up for that while keeping the laptop cool. Another thing I really like is how big the keys are including the arrow keys. This is very useful for different usage (work/ game/ etc.). Also it comes with all kind of ports (USB3.2, Thunderbolt 4, USB-C, USB3.1, HDMI, etc.), but it's kinda expected from this price point. Bottom line is, if you are shopping for quality, nice looking, thin and light but powerful laptop that has dedicated graphics with style, definitely add this to your list and you will not be disappointed.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
