What customers say about "Memory"
MSI GL63 15.6-Inch FHD Gaming Laptop (Black)
  • The sd card reader works without a flaw oh and there’s no dead pixels that I can see.
  • GTX 1060 6GB RAM is able to handle just about anything you throw at it, coupled with the i7 8750H cpu & 16BG DDR4 RAM 1666hz.
  • My windows loading time is a few seconds, amazing SSD!
  • Small SSD 128GB (C: holds Windows 10 Home & leaves you around 70+GB free).
  • High speed SSD but 128GB is not enough.

What customers say about "Features"
MSI GL63 15.6-Inch FHD Gaming Laptop (Black)
  • It’s very quite even with its fans running full tilt.
  • The screen is good at all sensible angles and the colours seem very good too.
  • After a recent forced update to Windows 10, the audio driver is causing me endless problems. No audio will come out of them unless I reinstall a previous vesion of the driver. Since the driver is then reupdated, you can guess how annoying this is becoming.
  • Good sound quality - 2x bottom firing speakers & 1x subwoofer.
  • My only real complaint about the laptop technology wise is the touchpad: it feels cheap and has a real lack sensitivity.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
MSI GL63 15.6-Inch FHD Gaming Laptop (Black)
  • Good quality laptop with good connectivity. Every port works nice and no disconecting.
  • As soon as the hdmi cable was plugged into the laptop the screen was duplicated on the 200inch screen no difficulties there.
  • This is a fantastic device, video plays fine through it, my internet connection seems quicker!
  • The earphones jack does not fully go inside the port. I always hate it.
  • The charger is bulky but the cable is not very long, forcing you to keept it close to the laptop or on the table with it.
