Review MSI GE40-i760M2811 Notebook

Notebookcheck
6 January 2014
  • Summary: Little powerhouse. MSI takes a lot of risk with their GE40. Lightning-fast high-end hardware from Intel and Nvidia come in a compact and comfortably lightweight 14-inch case. How does that combination affect the notebook's temperatures and noise level? Read on to find out.
  • Pros: First-class speed for its size, Light and very thin case, Maintenance-friendly, Compact power supply, Long battery life, SSD/HDD combo, 14-inch case + high-end hardware = a clever concept.
  • Cons: Ports not optimally positioned, Bothersome emissions under load, No keyboard lighting, Small touchpad, No optical disk drive, High-gloss surfaces, Poor image quality, Thin sound quality, A better panel and no more high-gloss elements are high on our wish list.

MSI GE40 2OC-009US Gaming Notebook Review: The Best of Both Worlds?

PC Perspective
11 November 2013
  • Excerpt: With few exceptions, it’s generally been taken for granted that gaming notebooks are going to be hefty devices. Portability is rarely the focus, with weight and battery life alike usually sacrificed in the interest of sheer power. But the MSI GE40 2OC—the lightest 14-inch gaming notebook currently available—seeks to compromise while retaining the gaming prowess.

  • Conclusion: Granted, it won't win many LAN parties if someone else shows up with a much more expensive rig like an Alienware 17, but it'll give you satisfying 1,600x900 gaming if you dial back the games' eye candy a bit. By all means check out the Razer (or the dual-graphics IdeaPad Y510p) if you have more to spend, but so far, the GE40 looks like the price/performance leader of the truly-portable-gaming field.
  • Pros: Good gaming performance, Attractive thin and light design, Long battery life, Good port selection
  • Cons: No optical drive, No keyboard backlighting, Screen resolution short of full HD (1080p)

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The MSI GE40 2OC-009US is a gaming ultrabook that delivers solid performance on the go, with a low price and a few flaws that can be overlooked.
  • Pros: Gaming ultrabook with slim portable design. Fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor. Nvidia GeForce GTX760M graphics. Decent feature set. Solid battery life.
  • Cons: Gets uncomfortably hot. Disappointing display. Awkward button bar mars otherwise decent trackpad. No keyboard backlight.

MSI GE40 2OC-009US Review

LAPTOP Magazine
19 June 2013
  • Summary: The MSI GE40 2OC-009US has the horsepower to run today's demanding games, and the endurance needed to last a long time away from an outlet when you're not blasting enemies. Packed with a speedy 2.9-3.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, both a 128GB SSD and a 7,200 rpm 750GB hard drive, and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 760M GPU, MSI's offering is fit to go head-to-head with the pricier Alienware 14.

Courte critique du PC portable MSI GE40-i760M2811

15 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Une petite centrale à elle seule. MSI prend beaucoup de risque avec son GE40. Composants de pointe ultra-rapides griffés Intel et Nvidia le tout dans un châssis compact et poids-plume de 14 pouces. Qu'en est-il de la nuisance sonore et de la chauffe ?

Обзор ноутбука MSI GE40

10 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Перед нами - компактный, но достаточно доступный игровой ноутбук, что подразумевает компромиссы в существенном количестве. Естественно, часть этих компромиссов навязывается производителем искусственно. В этом нет ничего предосудительного, лишь чистый бизнес - прибыль непредсказуемо упадёт, если пользователи вдруг поймут, что полностью металлический корпус повышает себестоимость лишь на пару десятков долларов относительно дешевого пластика, а качественные матрицы стоят...

Test MSI GE40-i760M2811 Notebook

Notebookcheck
25 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Im Segment der kompakten 14-Zoll-Gamer hat es MSI schwer. Mit Ausnahme der Akkulaufzeit kann sich das GE40 nicht von der (zumeist teureren) Konkurrenz distanzieren. Während das Razer Blade (85 %) mit einem schicken, dünnen und exzellent verarbeiteten Body auf Kundenfang geht und das Alienware 14 (86 %) durch eine moderne Optik, eine gute Anschlussvielfalt sowie eine umfangreiche Beleuchtung in Erscheinung tritt, versinkt das GE40 im Mittelmaß .
  • Pros: Erstklassige Geschwindigkeit für den Formfaktor, Leichtes und recht dünnes Gehäuse, Wartungsfreundlich, Kompaktes Netzteil, Hohe Akkulaufzeit, SSD/HDD-Combo
  • Cons: Suboptimale Anschlussverteilung, Störende Emissionen unter Last, Keine Tastaturbeleuchtung, Geringe Touchpad-Größe, Kein optisches Laufwerk, Hochglanzoberflächen, Mäßige Bildqualität, Dürftiger Sound

  • Summary: Vous allez le comprendre, nous avons plutôt aimé le produit, pour autant, nous n'en ferons pas forcément des éloges. Mais pour le moment, voyons le positif, et surtout les excellentes performances pour un châssis à la dalle de 14 pouces. Dalle qui plus est est mate, ce qui est assez rare pour être souligné. Nous avons en plus des bonnes performances, une bonne harmonie de l'ensemble avec un SSD ; cependant, 4 Go de RAM supplémentaires manquent cruellement.
  • Pros: Performance de premier ordre pour du 14", SSD, 1600 x 900, Design Sobre, Dalle mâte
  • Cons: 4 Go de RAM..., Températures., Autonomie, Clavier non rétro-éclairé, Bruit en charge

TEST: MSI GE40 2OC Dragon Eyes - multimediální 14" notebook s opravdu silným základem

DigiWorld
22 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Společnost MSI nedávno uvedla na trh novinky. Některé zajímavé jsme již v testu měli. Do nové generace NB ale patří i dnes představovaný kousek. Herním (grafickým) výkonem se sice uvedeným 17" modelům zdaleka nevyrovná, ale procesorový výkon je fantastický a hlavně je to opravdu mobilní PC s rozměrem 14", výškou těla jen 29,2mm a vahou 2kg.
