MSI GS60 6QE Ghost Pro 4K Gaming Laptop Review
Display and Multimedia
15.6-inch UHD (3840 × 2160) IPS – that’s what you’re getting from the GS60 6QE. The large, high-resolution screen makes it perfect for watching videos, multi-window tasks and, of course, gaming. Viewing angles are good with some slight color shifting when viewed at an extreme angle from below. It’s vibrant with auto-brightness, and has accurate colors, too.
Speaking of colors, the GS60 Ghost Pro comes with a software called MSI True Color which lets you adjust the display’s presets depending on your task: Gamer, Anti-Blue, sRGB, Designer, Office, Movie. With that said, this laptop’s display can satisfy pros — from gamers, animators, video editors, to photographers.
Audio-wise, the GS60 Ghost Pro boasts speakers powered by DynaAudio. Sound produced is crisp with sufficient amount of bass. Its virtual surround effect is also impressive especially when you utilize it with Nahimic for MSI software.
From there you can also adjust audio profiles depending on your task (Music, Gaming, Movie) or manually tweak it to suit your preference. The only downside is its loudness as we often find it lacking, prompting us to use headphones instead. Still, the speakers on this thing can provide an immersive audio experience.
OS, Apps, and Storage
Running the software department is Windows 10 Home 64-bit. It comes with pre-installed apps like MSI System Control Manager, MSI Battery Calibration, MSI True Color, SteelSeries Engine, MSI BurnRecovery, Nahimic for MSI, Super Charger by MSI, Dragon Gaming Center, Norton Security, and Microsoft Office.
As for storage, the GS60 Ghost Pro uses a combination of SSD and HDD. The main disk (Drive C) has a 128GB SSD which we find to be very limited especially if you want to install big games on it. It only has around 118GB of usable space with around 74GB available out of the box.
On the upside, it’s fast which is noticeable when launching applications. As for the HDD, it carries a 1TB capacity which is where MSI wants you to store a bulk of your files like movies, photos, and music.
