Q: On MSI's specification page for the GL65 Leopard 10SCXK-066, it says that the HDD capacity includes 512GB NVMe SSD and 1TB (7200RPM) HDD. On Target, it only says that it has the 512GB NVMe SSD. Which one is most accurate?

submitted by Tonya - 2 years ago
  • A: I can tell you that this laptop does not have a 1TB hard drive. If you need more than the 512gb, which you likely will, you'd have to purchase and external drive. I would recommend an external Solid State Drive for faster, more efficient processing.

Apparently there’s a known defect in the design of their power charge ports. After my port broke off, I pulled up the Reddit page and saw posts dating back to 2018 for MSI laptops’ charge ports breaking off. The fact that it still hasn’t been corrected is sad. I had to glue it down with epoxy and it still comes off frequently

I bought this as kind of an entry-level gaming laptop, and I was somewhat shocked on how powerful it is for the money. The Intel I5 processor is very quick and the GTX 1650 graphics card delivers very good video quality. It’s not the best gaming laptop on the market, but I would recommend it as a starter or maybe even intermediate gamer

I scoured high and low for a good value laptop. The specs are definitely worth the price. On top of that, this laptop is absolutely gorgeous. The keyboard is the highlight of it all. Completely customizable lights, I spent so long going through the different colors and styles. Laptop is super fast with start up due to the SSD. Everything about it is worth the price.

Pretty Nice

Tonya - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
The laptop is alright. I don't play hardcore games (I mainly play the Sims 3 and 4 and Minecraft), so my perspective may be a little limited; however, it does pretty well when running both. My fps for Minecraft ranges from 100 to 470 (only works when it's charging, when not on charger, it only reaches 60 fps which is weird), and my Sims games run pretty smooth. The battery isn't the best since it ranges from 1-3 hours, so be prepared to have your charger near. Also, regarding the sound that everyone is talking about, it's supposed to be used alongside the Nahimic app that's on the computer. Nahimic makes the sound 100% better and you can even adjust it <3.

I tried this laptop out to replace my similar 5-year-old MSI. I figured it would be an easy transition but ultimately wound up returning it. Keyboard – the per-key RBG is awesome. My old laptop only had 3 zones. I like the Steel Series keyboard for typing and gaming and find the customization software to work well enough but find that number pads on laptops usually don't work how you expect them to. Screen - Fine but light bleeds around the edges. I typically use laptops at night, so this is noticeable. I think the colors are bit too vibrant. I could get over those if other issues weren't at play. Size – Much more compact than I'm used to, which makes gaming laptops more attractive to the average user. Battery/charger – the charging port is in the middle of the right side. I often use laptops on my lap, which means that I am constantly knocking it out. I think they did this to make room for the speakers. Sound – AWFUL. My 2002 moto flip phone sounded better. The speakers are at the back of the unit and covered in huge grates. I've truly never heard anything worse! The microphone sounded fine, though. Heat output – It runs hotter with only Chrome running than my 5-year-old MSI does while only running Chrome. Sure, you can run the fan boost all the time kills the fans quicker (I know because I had to on my older MSI and I replaced due to my concern over heat death). I also don't think its acceptable to need additional cooling for a brand-new laptop. I'd be concerned over component damage if you're a serious gamer. Noise – Because it's so hot, the fans are always boosted. I would expect that after a few years of use, but brand new? Not acceptable. Other – the power/fan boost/Steel Series buttons are ridiculously recessed and hard to press. I didn't get a chance to test the camera and only used it plugged in, so cannot comment on battery drain. It's responsive enough, and I could have gotten away with the RAM and SSD provided (although, you can upgrade for sure), but MSI had to "fix" some things that weren't broken. This is not an improvement over their entry-level laptops from several years ago. In short, this is not a $900 laptop. It MIGHT be a $700 laptop if you have no other choice, and computer prices are so inflated right now, so you may not.

I bought this laptop on Black Friday and I’d say it was a good purchase I’m running the games I’ve played so far at 60 FPS games such as apex , rogue company , dead by daylight. The light up keyboard is a nice feature ( it has 10+ light up options).
