MSI Wind U160-007US Review

Reviewboard Magazine
24 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Basic Netbooks are a fairly simple formula to pull off. Combine an Intel Atom 450 processor, 1GB of RAM, Windows 7 Starter, and a 250GB hard drive, and you’ve got any of an army of products from Asus, Acer, HP, and others. MSI was another early combatant in the Netbook wars, and its Wind models have typically followed the usual trends in components and pricing, making them perfectly acceptable alternatives.

MSI Wind U160-007US

PC Magazine
20 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The MSI U160-007US's only perk is it ships with a big 65WH battery and it's reasonably priced; other than that there's not much to brag about.
  • Pros: Nine hours' worth of battery life. Reasonably priced.
  • Cons: Plain design. Noisy mouse buttons. Battery bulges out from the bottom.

MSI Wind U160 netbook review

HEXUS
14 July 2010
  • Conclusion: As a netbook, MSI's Wind U160 has almost all of the right ingredients. The system's small, thin, ultra-light, very easy on the eye and comfortable in use. Performance is exactly what you'd expect from an Atom-powered netbook; it's perfectly adequate for basic tasks such as word processing and light web browsing, and battery life - albeit short of MSI's own claims - is excellent.

MSI Wind U160 Netbook

Tech2
5 July 2010
  • Excerpt: This model is the latest netbook by MSI, a piping hot model from their Wind series released few days back in India. MSI knows their stuff when it comes to netbooks, and this one's got a heavy claim of super juiced up battery life, plus it sports all the candy that a new netbook should like the Atom N450, 16p Gb HDD etc. So let’s take a closer look.

Review MSI Wind U160 Netbook

Notebookcheck
2 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The MSI Wind U160 is yet another representative of the netbook sector. The 10 inch device with a WSVGA display and a maximum resolution of 1024x600 pixels doesn't only look great, but was also able to win the much desired " iF Product Design Award 2010 ". The Wind U160 is available in two colors, which are Jet Black or, like our test sample, in a successful Fancy Gold .
  • Pros: Long battery life, Design and looks, Bluetooth, Workmanship, As known, there is no accounting for taste. But MSI Wind U160 has literally brought us a fresh wind in the black-white monotony of notebooks and netbooks.
  • Cons: Sound, Uneven display illumination, Constantly running fan, Temperature under load, Design is balanced, workmanship is suitable. The recommended retail price of 349.00 euro is just. Just like the good battery life. The only thing missing now is a better fan control paired with cooler temperatures under load.

Power-Sipping Netbook Is a Traveler's BFF

Wired
16 April 2010
  • Excerpt: “More power !” is at the top of everyone’s netbook wish list. And MSI delivers that with the sexy Wind U160, which pushes battery life into transatlantic territory. The U160 is a looker. Gone is the flat, monochrome exterior of previous Winds like the U110. MSI primped the U160 with elegance through details like a superglossy chassis and a “seamless” integrated trackpad.
  • Pros: Impressively travel-friendly battery life. Great looks and pleasantly light at 2.6 pounds. Offers all the netbook meat and potatoes: 802.11n, 250-GB HDD, and 1 GB of RAM. Managed energy consumption means cool, quiet operation. Decent netbook bang for the buck.
  • Cons: Large battery and hinge add junk to that trunk. Slooow 3+ hour recharge time. Tinny sound makes headphones nearly mandatory. Webcam mic is oddly positioned at the right of the screen. Large trackpad button feels mushy.

MSI Wind U160

LAPTOP Magazine
21 March 2010
  • Summary: The MSI Wind U160 ($379) isn’t perfect—its battery juts out of the back and its keys are smallish—but on the whole it’s a strong choice in the 10-inch category. This machine offers especially long battery life, good performance, and one of the lightest designs you’ll find.
  • Pros: p  pAmong lightest netbooks, Long battery life, Fast hard drive, Cool operating temperatures,
  • Cons: p  pSome undersized keys, Limited tech support hours, Six-cell battery protrudes from the back, Smaller hard drive, ,
