As a preamble to this test

So we did some tests MSI GL75 9SDK-268XES to find out what it was worth. The result depends on the use you will make of it.Price and type of technology alone do not justify the choice of a model.We have oriented our test according to criteria such as use for travel, office automation, internet browsing, games or multimedia.
This article will help you make the right choice according to your needs.
GL75 9SDK-268XES compatible with internet use?
Just because your use of a laptop is limited to e-mail and web browsing sessions, doesn’t mean you should buy any model.This laptop will ensure that the tasks you perform will be reliable and trouble-free for years to come.In fact, it’s all about finding a product with the right price/quality ratio. This product will thus perfectly meet your needs.With this GL75 9SDK-268XES, MSI is well positioned in relation to other competing models.The screen is quite large, with 17 inches. Not necessarily easy to carry around. The computer is equipped with one of the latest processors Core i7-9750H. Knowing that the evolution of components is very fast, you will have with this model and this component, a laptop that will last a few years. In addition, with this model, you have at your disposal a tool that will make your internet navigation fluid. The amount of RAM provided is 16 Gb. A large quantity, more than you will need for strictly web browsing use.
For hard drive sizing, MSI decided to put 500 Gb. This is the standard model. If, on the other hand, you are storing photos, video or music, it will be filled up quickly. And when you reach the limit, if you get there, you can always buy an external hard drive or a local file server like Synlogy NAS.
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. In other words, you will have to keep this GL75 9SDK-268XES most of the time connected to the power cable.
The GL75 9SDK-268XES- the right model for streaming and videos ?
Making this GL75 9SDK-268XES a multimedia tool, such seems to have been the objective of MSI. In the age of multimedia, this laptop has evolved and is a cross between a TV, radio and a desktop computer. We discovered through the tests we put it to, that it is one of the best on the market. The sound reproduction level and the display quality of this top-of-the-range model won’t be lacking.
The laptop from .MSI is imposing by its size. Large by size, with 17 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. Very good quality rendering, both in brightness and image detail.
The only disadvantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop of 2.5 kg.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. It will be more delicate to perfectly distinguish the images without getting tired.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
For the sound part, the GL75 9SDK-268XES is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
This model has one of the best processors of the moment; the Core i7-9750H. Belonging to the latest generation of processors, this laptop will not be impressed by multiple multimedia tasks. With this model, you have a tool capable of making several billion calculations per second.
With NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 16 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
Regarding the connectivity part, MSI has made efforts with available 4 ports. That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
In short, for those who wish to replace their TV set with this laptop, it GL75 9SDK-268XES seems inappropriate. With its autonomy of 4 hours, don’t expect to do a movie marathon. A management of the time available to take into account when you are on the move watching a movie. Therefore, it is best to use this computer constantly plugged into an outlet, without worrying about battery life.

It GL75 9SDK-268XES is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. It doesn’t seem to have been a priority when they designed this model MSI.

Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
It is one of the heaviest laptops in its class, with 2.5 Kg. Every transport is painful. For a laptop it”s bulky to move. The main cause is due to the size of the screen. With its 17 inches, the screen will however render a large image.

When away on business, your laptop will mostly stay at the hotel. And the only times you’ll have to carry it will be between the bus or train and your hotel room. The main reason is its 17 inches, which makes it one of the largest in its class; every move, with its weight, may be difficult.
