Even if there are not really bad choices in laptops anymore, it is important to know that some models are more intended for multimedia, and others more for games.The overall quality of a model depends on the use you make of it.From basic use (the Web, and e-mail) to online gaming with powerful machines.
This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
GE75 Raider compatible with internet use?
Chances are that your daily use is not limited to surfing the Internet, and that you need the other functions as well.It is necessary to be able to count on a quality laptop that will not let you down in 2 years, due to obsolescence.In fact, it’s all about finding a product with the right price/quality ratio. Here you have an almost perfect product.With this GE75 Raider, MSI is well positioned in relation to other competing models.With a 17.3 inches size, you’re going to have some trouble carrying it around. As for the processor level, this model is equipped with the Core i7-8750H. Its power will give you the assurance of having a laptop that will work very well for 10 years. In short, this model will give you full satisfaction for an Internet browsing use. A standard equipment with 8 Gb of RAM. Even if it has free slots in which you can add memory strips, it’s more than enough to get you started.
Of all the computers available at the moment, this one is the laptop with the largest hard drive. Even if you think 1256 Gb is more than enough, it’s surprising to discover that it’s easy to fill a disc completely with photos, movies or games in a very short time. In case you would have to do without any internet connection, this size of space can be interesting.
Finally, the autonomy of 4 hours is one of the worst on the market. The batteries that equip this model are less efficient than those of other models in the same category. A lower autonomy is harmful, because the GE75 Raider is easy to access, and you have a lot of fun using it for a long time.
GE75 Raider the right choice for watching movies ?
Making this GE75 Raider a multimedia tool, such seems to have been the objective of MSI. You will benefit from an unparalleled comfort of use. We discovered through the tests we put it to, that it is one of the best on the market. A quality of image and sound that allows it to achieve an excellent score in this category.
The laptop from .MSI is imposing by its size. Large by size, with 17.3 inches and a high resolution of 1920×1080. This model has a wide screen that will be essential for viewing your movies and streaming video. The rendering is bright and vivid, and if you take a moment to look at the screen from several angles you will see that there is no distortion of the image or inverted colors.
The only disadvantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop of 2.6 kg.
Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this GE75 Raider. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
This model has one of the best processors of the moment; the Core i7-8750H. Unlike the brand’s older processors, energy efficiency is optimal and consumption is well controlled. With this model, you have a tool capable of making several billion calculations per second.
Equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 graphic card, and with 8 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 4 ports. That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
In short, for those who wish to replace their TV set with this laptop, it GE75 Raider seems inappropriate. Indeed, with 4 hours of autonomy, it is one of the worst specifications. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. This situation may annoy many people, considering that the interest of a laptop is to be free of these details.
The GE75 Raider to use while travelling.
Easier to transport than a desktop computer, it is not intended for travelling. It doesn’t seem to have been a priority when they designed this model MSI. Difficult to store in a suitcase, not very suitable for transport, tests have shown that this laptop will be more in its element for very exceptional trips.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
It is one of the heaviest laptops in its class, with 2.6 Kg. It’s complicated when you have to transport it. If you use it on your lap, you will find that it is cumbersome. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. With its 17.3 inches, the screen will however render a large image.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not really necessary.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. The screen shows an interesting result.
This laptop is very comfortable to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
With its Core i7-8750H, this computer has a limited power consumption, one of the best currently. With the low voltage on the processor, the autonomy is increased and allows to last longer than competing models.
Please note that the autonomy is provided as an indication by MSI, and that you should rather take 70% of this value into account.
Battery life is worse than the competitors, with only 4 hours before the laptop has to be plugged back into the mains.
Because use is likely to consist of travel and traveling, this laptop was thin and relatively light with 2 hard drives, one SSD, the other normal, for an overall size of 1256 Gb. The main advantage of this disc mix is that the SSD contains fewer moving parts, and is faster, and that the standard disc allows more recording-erasing phases. This reduces the noise caused by the movement of the read/write heads of the standard disk and preserves the storage capacity. If you still run out of space, all you need to do is buy an external drive.
When it comes to traveling, you’ll probably think twice before you take that computer with you. You will limit transport as much as possible because of its bulk. The reason for this is its size; with 17.3 inches, it is one of the largest laptops of the moment.
On the connector side, it GE75 Raider has 4 ports. It is thus at the top of the ranking, compared with other laptops on the market.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
Because of all these elements, we do not recommend this GE75 Raider for travel use.

Valuable flash memory via the SSD for fast program execution, and a standard disk for storing personal data. The storage size of 1256 Gb is one of the best on the market in this product range. It is one of the top of the range for this parameter. In case you need an additional external storage drive, no problem with a connection to external media. In extreme cases, you will still have the option of external storage via usb ports.
With 4 hours in battery-only calculation mode, you’ll have little latitude. Unfortunately, it remains low for an audio-video use which needs a lot of computing power. On this point MSI could have done much better.
For the connector part, the GE75 Raiderhas the USB3 format. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
