Reviews for the MSI Creator 17 A10SGS

82.5% MSI Creator 17 A10SGS Laptop Review: Winning with a Mini LED | Notebookcheck
In contrast to the similarly equipped GS75, the Creator 17 is targeted towards creative professionals as the name already tells us. However, its most unique feature is not the target group, but the brand-new Mini LED display with HDR support. Is it worth the high price, or is the technology just smoke and mirrors?

17.30":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


81.25%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
