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, ,

MSI Wind U160 review

Pocket Lint
13 August 2010
  • Excerpt: The fervour surrounding netbooks seems to be abating, as tablets rear their heads and fight for the same space, a middle space, between the phone and the laptop proper. When we think of a netbook, the MSI Wind always comes to mind and here we see the latest iteration of the device, the U160.
  • Pros: Design, keyboard is pretty good, battery life
  • Cons: Some left-side keyboard flex, glossy screen and finish will attract reflections and fingerprints, only 1GB RAM, no trackpad shortcuts

MSI Wind U160 Review

KitGuru
6 August 2010
  • Excerpt: 2 Flares 2 Flares × The netbook phenomenon has exploded in recent years with almost every major manufacturer entering into this lucrative market. MSI were one of the pioneers with the 2008 Wind U100 selling en masse to a cost conscious audience. I had one of these units for 9 months and I have to say it was a reliable netbook, even if it was slow as molasses.

  • Pros: Good battery life, Attractive design, Responsive keypad
  • Cons: Same netbook innards as every other netbook, Ordinary performance, Battery bulges out the back
