Reviews for the MSI GF65 Thin 10UE

80.4% MSI GF65 Thin 10UE Laptop Review: GeForce RTX 3060 on a Budget | Notebookcheck
We test one of the most affordable gaming laptops you can find with GeForce RTX 3060 graphics to see what cut corners, if any, owners may have to contend with. Is MSI hiding anything under the cheap price?
80% MSI GF65 Thin gaming laptop review: Sleek and stylish
Source: Pocket Lint English
In the end, MSI GF65 Thin is a decent gaming machine. It's nicely portable, easy on the eye, and more than capable of handling modern games with decent frame-rates. The screen is well balanced, the speakers are good enough to block out most fan noise, and it doesn't get too hot and bothered under pressure (unless you're a lap gamer). It's one of the better thin gaming laptops we've tested, especially when you consider the specification included at this price point.

MSI GF65 Thin 10UE Review: Thin-and-Light Gaming Machine
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
To conclude this review of the MSI GF65 Thin 10UE, for its price, this is quite an average gaming laptop. Its mediocre display, last-gen 10th gen Intel CPU, plastic build quality, and sub-par battery life could be a dealbreaker to many. Additionally, at its price range, you can get something like the Asus TUF Dash F15 (2021) which is powered by the newer 11th gen processor—while also bringing a bigger battery and a relatively premium build quality.

81% MSI GF65 Thin 10UE-014UK Review
Source: Digit week English
The MSI GF65 Thin is certainly one of the most impressive RTX 3060 gaming laptops we’ve reviewed to date. The laptop meets or outclasses its most performant competitors and undoubtedly trounces them all in terms of design and performance. That said, we wish a few more niceties given the price, like USB-C support for Thunderbolt, DisplayPort, or Power Delivery; and the laptop delivers below-par CPU and GPU performance unless Cooler Boost is activated. All told, for the price, the MSI GF65 Thin 10UE-014UK is one of the best gaming laptops you can buy today. While you’ll have to do with some compromises in audio, and there’s no biometric login available yet, those are small conceits to make for an otherwise stellar laptop you can confidently take into work, college or your next gaming session.

Review: MSI GF65 Thin
Source: Hexus English
Perhaps, though would-be buyers should be aware of the various limitations. The chassis is a fingerprint magnet, fan noise is really quite bothersome, battery life is poor, and the 144Hz display, while fast, is decidedly average in most other metrics. There may also be question marks surrounding long-term performance; while RTX 3060 Laptop ought to be a fine fit for 1080p gameplay, MSI's restrained 75W implementation is at the lower end of the scale and may struggle with tomorrow's more demanding titles.
