MSI Creator 15 A10SX review – the ultimate content creator beast
Source: Laptop Media English
It is great that MSI provides software that enables you to tune the performance to your likings. If you need a quieter machine – go for Balanced and below, and if you need the full power of this system, pick the High Performance one. Ultimately, the biggest difference will be in CPU performance, so the main advantage you get by choosing it is when you are rendering videos, 3D animations, or compiling your code.

MSI Creator 15 A10UGT Review
Source: Vortez English
MSI has made some cutbacks with Creator 15 which will probably affect those who this laptop is targeted at. We get a 720p webcam which is disappointing, and to our surprise there is no SD card slot reader. There is allocation for a secondary storage drive within, but just primary has been installed. Those who are managing large file sizes will undoubtedly need to invest in another drive and get that installed – which is an additional expense.

Source: Digit week English
The MSI Creator 15 blends the right features to earn our nod in the creative category. These include a sleek, stylish-yet-professional design; an eight-core Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia RTX 2070 graphics card; a vivid, high-res (4K) display, a standard IR camera, fingerprint reader; Wi-Fi 6; and nearly 10 hours of battery life. That’s an outstanding resume for any creative notebook. Though it is held back by just one USB Type-A port, and its hot-running chassis, that keep it from earning our Editors’ Choice award, but those downsides can easily be overlooked. All said, the Creator 15 is a superior performer than both the Asus ProArt StudioBook 15 and the Razer Blaze 15 Base Edition for around the same or less money. Mind the heat, but seriously put the MSI Creator 15 A10SFS-287 on the short list.

MSI Creator 15 review: A gaming laptop turned into a creator PC
Source: XDA Developers English
Other than the OLED display, which is absolutely stunning, one of the biggest things that stands out to me here is that boxy design. MSI’s laptops are traditionally made for gaming, and it feels like the firm took a gaming laptop design and swapped out a bunch of gamer-centric features for creator-centric ones. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; indeed, it might be quite the opposite, but it should give you an idea if this laptop is for you.
