    the fact that there is only one windows key and its on the right side is quite difficult to get used to in my experience with this laptop, well the ge72, which is nearly identical.

    So after a 2 years of gaming i cant run the laptop on sport mode as it overheats badly, if you do some research you will find many people who own this laptop have the same issues and have to run the laptop in eco mode for gaming which sucks

  10. DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT BUY THIS LAPTOP. I have had this model of laptop for a couple years now and the keyboard had some problems. The O key the 1 key and the equal sign key would not work correctly. After going through hours of software trouble shooting I decided that it had to be a hardware problem. So I ordered a new keyboard and it turns out that on this model, I'm not sure about others, MSI used melted plastic to keep the keyboard on. I used a Dremel to get the thing off but now I have zero way of attaching it back to the laptop case. Unless you can find a replacement top case or your not as unlucky as I was. DO NOT BUY THIS! I will update if I find a solution to my problem.

    This is the shittiest laptop i have ever bought. It spent more time in service center than on my lap. Also, MSI service sucks, there's only one service center in delhi. It takes a month or so for each service. Today it completely died after just 2 years. Wasted $2000. I won't buy MSI product again.

    Did you just say the thermals are good on this? I have owned many laptops and the ge62 is far and away the hottest. It actually got so hot that it melted my charge cable. Obviously this is an older review, but even day 1 this was a laptop that got throttled pretty easily and didn't manage heat well

    I need to replace my MSI MS-16GD, for which I have eight AC power supplies (19.5V 4A 5.5mmx2.5mm) for four different rooms at home and four offices at work. I need to buy a new MSI laptop that can use these power supplies, as I don't want to have to buy eight new ones.

    Can the MSI GE62 VR use these power supplies?

  16. ever never

    i have 95degress in cpu in 2020
    we same with mine

    Hey, I have an MSI GE72VR 6RF Apache Pro. Very nice laptop but i can't get any decent fps in The Witcher3 / GTA5 / Cyberpunk 2077 on lowest settings…
