Reviews for the MSI Pulse GL66 11UDK

100% MSI Pulse GL66 Review – Game for anything
Source: Toptenreviews English
MSl’s Pulse GL66 has been configured to catch the eye of gamers, but don’t let that put you off’ if gaming isn’t your thing. Its graphics are certainly powerful enough to produce stunning backdrops if, for example, you like to take Microsoft Flight Simulator out for a spin, but with a better processor and screen than we typically see in gaming laptops, it’s also ideal for everyday Windows users. With a decent screen and great Windows performance, this gaming laptop can do it all, though its bulky build and poor battery life make it less than ideal when out and about.

80% MSI GL66 Pulse review: A solid all-rounder rather than a gaming great
Source: Expert Reviews English
The problem with the GL66 is that it’s not the cheapest RTX 30-series gaming laptop, despite using one of the cheapest – and weakest – RTX30-series GPUs. The Acer Nitro 5 has the more powerful RTX 3060 but can be picked up for £999, so at £1,099 I can’t help feeling the GL66 is a bit more expensive than it should be. Granted, the Acer has a much lower-quality screen and feels cheaper as a package and I’d much rather use the GL66 as a day-to-day notebook. However, these are gaming laptops first and foremost so gaming performance is paramount. With comparatively weak gaming figures and poor battery life, the MSI GL66 isn’t much of a winner.
