Very powerful, very fast, fantastic display
Gets very warm
Using this laptop so far has been fantastic. I enjoy the very comfortable keyboard layout, the fast and vibrant display, and wonderful performance overall whether I'm using this for work or for play. You get what you expect out of this laptop so I wanted to focus a few points that I didn't like even though it didn't bother me enough to take off stars. -touchpad in an awkward position and it doesn't feel great -laptop lid smudges easy and leaves lots of fingerprints -speakers don't get very loud even when turned all the way up Other than these few points it was a great laptop.
mostry everything is great
trackpad can be improved, little warm
mostly great and works as advertised, touch pad is the worst thing about it. clicking not always works. runs a little warm but can be dealt with a custom fan curve. overall would recommend to any one just buy a good mouse.
Everything is great
Runs a little warm even when not playing games
Great product, everything arrived in perfect condition and timely manner. Laptop was great and exectly as I customized. Not a ton of bloatware with this new generation so a solid start. Started running warm from very start so I dont know if the fan curve needs to be adjusted or what but works as advertised.
Lightweight, SSD, Screen Size
Keyboard takes some getting use to.
I've been using this laptop mostly for work and some gaming while I travel. Excellent Laptop. Haven't had any issues. The laptop and charger are lightweight enough to carry in my backpack. Excellent battery life.
sleek, sexy, packs a punch!
MSI GS65 Stealth THIN-054 Review
“Shut up and take my money!” That’s how I felt after finally deciding to purchase the MSI GS65 Stealth gaming laptop. I originally discovered this laptop after hearing about NVIDIA’S #IWANTMAXQ Contest in which participants had to upload a creative photo of themselves gaming on any laptop in any outdoor location. The winner could choose between an Acer Predator Triton 700, an ASUS ROG GX501, a MSI GS65, or a Gigabyte Aero 15x. I knew I had no chance of winning, but I was in the market for a new gaming laptop, so I decided to do some research. I am a recreational gamer, and I don’t have the space or a need for a desktop gaming setup. I personally enjoy sitting on the couch and playing video games while my gorgeous wife sits next to me and watches her Bravo TV shows. I’ve had a Gigabyte P27G-V2 for the longest time and being that it is a massive 17.3” laptop it is just too big, and it’s gotten too slow to keep up with today’s AAA games. What I was looking for was a decent 15” 10-series laptop that is more portable and can provide a better gaming experience. What I discovered was that the MSI GS65 is the perfect laptop for me. Upon first impression, the GS65 is like my wife. It is sleek and sexy and packs a serious punch! MSI definitely put a lot of time and effort in to the design of the GS65 because I only have one or two minor complaints about the design which I will discuss later in the cons section. But first let me talk about why I like the GS65 the most: 1. The cooling system is brilliantly engineered. It is extremely quiet compared to my old laptop and the intake and exhaust ports look beautiful with their gold accents. It is also capable of keeping the GPU below 75C while playing Destiny 2 at the highest settings. MSI did not sacrifice functionality for the design, in fact I believe they found the perfect balance of both. 2. The screen is 15.6” but MSI was able to provide an ultra-thin bezel that gives the laptop a 14” form factor. No kidding! Shortly after I purchased the GS65, I also purchased a pelican 1085 laptop case that is designed for 14” laptops and the GS65 fits perfectly. 3. The 144Hz display is unbelievable compared to what I was used to with my old laptop. It is just plain awesome and provides an unparallel gaming experience. 4. The GS65 has one of the longest lasting batteries out of all the other Max-Q gaming laptops. 5. The system optimization, lighting effects, and audio/visual enhancement features work really well, and I’m impressed by how much I can personalize my gaming experience. 6. When I purchased the laptop from Excalibur PC, I selected to have a second 256Gb SSD installed in a RAID 0 configuration. Now, my GS65 is blazing fast and has plenty of storage for my needs. As much as I love my GS65, it does have a few minor cons: 1. My GS65 came with a bunch of bloatware preinstalled. I had to create a Windows 10 boot USB using Window Media Creation tool, and then perform a clean install to get rid of the bloatware. After performing a clean install, it was kind of a pain having to reinstall most of the drivers and utilities. I found it very tedious and time consuming. 2. The Power LED shines right in your eyeballs, but at least it’s not too bright. I’ll probably end up putting a sticker or something over it to reduce its brightness. 3. The keyboard does not have a “screen-off” hotkey. However, the SCM software has a screen-off button. 4. The print-screen key is right were the delete key was on my old laptop, so I find myself accidently taking a bunch of screenshots all the time and they all get saved to my OneDrive. 5. The speakers are OK. They are about what I would expect in a laptop so thin. I always use a headset anyways so it’s not really a big deal to me. 6. I kind of wish there was an option for a UHD display, and I wish g-sync was enabled, but sadly neither are available. Overall, I would definitely recommend the MSI GS65 Stealth to anyone seeking to buy a near-top-tier gaming laptop.
Thin and Light; Power CPU & GPU
Not Good Assembled Enough
Good Game Laptop
I'm a gamer and businessman.I bought this laptop for the light weight and power CPU and GPU.It does satisfies me.The only cons is that it is nought as good assembled enough as the razer's new 15.6.But that is much more expensive than GS65.
The size and weight of this device makes it extremely portable, while not sacrificing performance.
Some minor issues are that it runs a bit hot while gaming, although there is little impact on performance. Personally, I was also somewhat disappointed with the removal of the numpad, but the keyboard does feel well built.
Review of the MSI GS65 Stealth Thin
I think the GS65 Stealth Thin is a huge step up from MSI's last-gen laptops, both in design and performance. My experience with this laptop has been very positive overall, and I can easily overlook the few issues I have with it.
