Reviews for the MSI GS76 Stealth 11UG-232

Ultimately, the GS76 hits a sweet spot of portability, affordability, and power that I appreciate. I can’t promise that you’ll never have to knock down a single setting, but I encountered very few gaming hiccups. And the QHD panel combined with the 240Hz refresh rate make for a gorgeous gaming experience. Even when doing regular work or browsing through Twitter, text and pictures looked noticeably crisper, and scrolling was quite smooth. I wish the aspect ratio were taller than 16:9, but that’s not nearly as much of a problem for productivity on a 17-inch display as it is on a smaller machine. But it still won’t be everyone’s 17-inch gaming laptop of choice. The battery life is unfortunate, and that dampens the benefit of the thin and light chassis, as you’ll need to lug the 230W charger most places you’re going. The poor webcam, the funkiness of the keyboard, and the volume of the fans may be turnoffs for those who are looking to double a device as a primary driver.

The MSI GS76 Stealth is a solid gaming laptop. It offers strong performance, a comfortable keyboard, solid battery life, and a colorful, high-refresh rate display. But it’s hard to ignore the dimmer-than-average display and crappy speakers. We loved the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro. It’s only $1,529 but still boasts the same GPU, a brighter display and a longer battery life. However, it skimps out on the RAM and storage compared to the MSI. Overall, the MSI GS76 Stealth is a solid choice for those that don’t mind using headphones and have a comfortable place to sit when this thing gets hot.

DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
