And to begin with…
Experienced users do not have the same needs as beginners. You are looking for a laptop and you hesitate between several models.Price and type of technology alone do not justify the choice of a model.So we ran tests on MSI GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – to find out what it was worth.
The detail of our analysis in this article.
GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – adapted to surf the internet?
Your needs are almost exclusively internet browsing and some word processing documents, but you don’t want any quality defects in this laptop.Ensuring proper operation requires quality components and proven technological competence on the part of the manufacturer.
That’s the direction taken by MSI with this GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider -.A well-made laptop that positions itself as mid-range compared to its competitors and because of its price. Material that seem to be well-designed.
With a 17 inches size, you’re going to have some trouble carrying it around. The manufacturer offers a processor Core i9-10980HK; A mid-range orientation. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. A standard equipment with 16 Gb of RAM. A large quantity, more than you will need for strictly web browsing use.
Of all the computers available at the moment, this one is the laptop with the largest hard drive. Even if you think 1000 Gb is more than enough, it’s surprising to discover that it’s easy to fill a disc completely with photos, movies or games in a very short time. Here, MSI provides with this GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – a laptop that will allow you to watch all your films locally for a long time.
Last point concerning the autonomy of 4 hours: A time of freedom that you will have to take into account and keep the power kit not too far away. Batteries store little energy, and the computer consumes a lot of energy when it is used. Not as good as what you can get on competing products, and that’s a pity, because in the end the laptop is pleasant to use.
The GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider — the right model for streaming and videos ?
With this laptop, MSI offers a product oriented toward general use. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. In other words, a computer dedicated to “classic” uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
The laptop from .MSI is imposing by its size. A 17 inches screen, and a resolution of 1920×1080 make it one of the great products available on the market at the moment. Because of its wide screen, it is perfectly designed for watching movies. The rendering is bright and vivid, and if you take a moment to look at the screen from several angles you will see that there is no distortion of the image or inverted colors.
One of the disadvantages of this size, however, is the overall weight: 2.6 kg that will have to be transported.
Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
For the sound part, the GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Obsolescence has already striken this laptop, equipped with a processor Core i9-10980HK that is several years old now. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
Equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super graphic card, and with 16 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 4 ports. It’s better than the competition. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
Nothing is more unpleasant than a computer that shuts down before the end of the film because of batteries of poor autonomy. With its autonomy of 4 hours, don’t expect to do a movie marathon. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. This situation may annoy many people, considering that the interest of a laptop is to be free of these details.
GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – compatible with on the move use ?
It GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. It doesn’t seem to have been a priority when they designed this model MSI. Difficult to store in a suitcase, not very suitable for transport, tests have shown that this laptop will be more in its element for very exceptional trips.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
With its 2.6 Kg, it GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – is one of the heaviest in its class. It’s complicated when you have to transport it. Its size will make you regret the format of ultrabooks. The reason for that ? The size of the screen. Its weight is a disadvantage, but the17 inches screen will make it an advantage when writing e-mails or doing word processing.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. The viewing is up to the mark.
This laptop is very comfortable to use. Good image definition and a matt anti-reflective tile that you’ll appreciate when you’re outdoors, with no sun glare.
Here this laptop is not very powerful because of its processor Core i9-10980HK; it’s inferior to the competition, and it’s not very good in terms of energy consumption.
Also, the batteries hold the charge for a shorter time; probably the worst results in this range. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of MSI; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
With 4 hours, this model is unfortunately one of the weakest currently offered on laptops.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 1000 Gb. The main advantage of this type of hard drive is that it contains fewer moving parts and is faster than standard drives.Thanks to this, MSI was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
When it comes to taking your laptop with you, it will seem safer to do so only occasionally. Its size does not invite you to carry it everywhere you go. The main reason is its 17 inches, which makes it one of the largest in its class; every move, with its weight, may be difficult.
On the connector side, it GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – has 4 ports. It is thus at the top of the ranking, compared with other laptops on the market.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
According to our analysis, we think it is better not to bring this GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – on holiday.
The GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – for audio or video editing ?
The publishing or the musical creation are not the uses that the engineers of MSI have thought of for this GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider -. Indeed, to meet this need it is necessary to have a laptop with a high processor and RAM speed, but this is not the case here. Of course you could still use it for this, but you will find that the result is too tight. Note that this model is not of the latest generation. It will be more suitable for word processing and Internet browsing, and as soon as you try to run applications in parallel, you will have frozen screens and a rise in computer temperature, whose processor will quickly reach its operating limits.
The software suite installed by default on this model provides the bare minimum to start working. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Core i9-10980HK does best. The general design is now too old to consider this type of use in a pro version.
The designers of MSI have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. However, for audiovisual use, we would have preferred a dual-disk system: a large-capacity hard disk for backup, and an SSD for speed of execution. The GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 1000 Gb. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
The autonomy of this GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – is of 4 hours in normal use; Unfortunately, it remains low for an audio-video use which needs a lot of computing power. With most competitors on the market, this figure is better.
Well thought out in terms of connections, it GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – receives the USB3 connection. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
As you will have understood, it GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – proposes a rather basic oriented use. This also explains its price positioning below the laptops designed for this specific use.
GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – for video games?
Most manufacturers are aware that the use of laptops is not limited to word processing and spreadsheets. And this GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – is one of the average laptops you can play with. On the other hand, if you have to go through several hours, these same components will seem weak.
Simply put, the higher the screen resolution, the more accurate the details in a game. On this computer, it’s a resolution of 1920×1080, nothing better at the moment
These generations of processor and graphics card are nowadays a little outdated, which makes this model below the others. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. In other words it is a good design model, but due to the lower power of the graphics card, it is less efficient for gaming.
For a gaming laptop to be effective, it is necessary to be exceptional in terms of power. This model is one of the most powerful of the moment, it will be able to make very complex calculations and display your games in a fluid and realistic way.
This laptop has one of the largest internal storage spaces. With 1000 Gb of available space, you will be able to store your backups, music and movies.
A better access to wifi on this GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – that is standard equipped with the 5GHz band. More speed for those living in full Wi-Fi areas.
One of the heaviest laptops of the moment, partly due to its 17 inches size.
Note the disadvantage in terms of autonomy: it is one of the lowest with 4 hours available.
It GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – is finally an interesting compromise for those who want performance without spending too much on the purchase. You can also use it for word processing if you need it.
GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – for office automation ?
Whatever the type of operating system, it is possible today to have an office use on all laptops. The OSes available on the market are all different technical ecosystems with their own applications. This GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – is in any case perfectly suited for office use.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. In this case, it is Windows 10.
It GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – is not designed to be transported, but it will do the job in the case of an exclusively fixed use, and little displacement. This model weighs 2.6 Kg, making it one of the heavyweight.
Due to the size of the keyboard, all the office oriented elements are present. On the right-hand side you will find a number pad.
Thanks to the matt treated screen surface, there is almost no reflection of direct sunlight or lamps in the offices. The colour palette is of good quality; blacks and whites do not look like yellow and grey.
During daytime use, the absence of a backlit keyboard will not be a problem.
It has a storage space of 1000 Gb.Today it is one of the largest storage capacities available.
Clearly, this is an excellent one in this price range. The right choice for anyone who wants an efficient computer.
The GE75 10SFS-278FR Raider – in conclusion
