Should you buy MSI GE72 6QD laptop? MSI Review
I bought an MSI gaming laptop cost around €1100 + shipping after reading a lot of positive reviews Online. First when I bought it the laptop was working great. But unfortunately it didn’t last longer than 3 years. In this article I will give an honest review of the MSI gaming laptop and what I didn’t like about it when using it. But first here are the MSI gaming laptop specification.

What I didn’t like about it?
The laptop had 2 fans both of them is very load which sound like a a washing machine.
One of the fan stopped working after 2 years. So I had to use one fan which is not enough and the laptop gets very hot quickly which can burn the CPU. Fixing the fan will cost about €185.
The laptop is very heavyweight and can be hard to take when travelling.
Selling the laptop without fixing it will not even get me 50% of it’s original price because it’s used and need repair.
I had a Toshiba laptop before this one and for 10 years I didn’t have any problem with it and I had all the update download available from the Toshiba website. But with MSI you can expect to update the system by following a hard to understand instructions on their website. To be honest I regret buying this laptop and I don’t recommend it.
Also when I bought the Toshiba laptop it was for €750 which was a great price for a laptop that lasted for 10 years. And when i gave it away it was still working fine, but i needed to upgrade to a new one.
My advice to always buy a well known laptops that had lots of good reviews on their website or customers reviews on Amazon product page.
Conclusions: Not every positive review you read online is correct. And you shouldn’t buy expensive products like laptops based on someone else’s opinion because he might have been paid for it. Always chick review on the brand’s website or Amazon customer review.
