15.6" MSI GP62 6QF Leopard Pro, FHD, i7 6700HQ, 8GB DDR4, 128GB M.2 SATA SSD+1TB HDD, 2GB GTX 960M, DVD±RW, Win10 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't think you can beat it for the price I wanted a budget gaming laptop that could handle newish games at medium settings. I've clocked up over 100 hrs of Shadow Of Mordor and it has been totally rock steady. I think the only thing holding it back from higher settings is having 2GB GPU RAM. The design of the case is really stylish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not without issues The screen has burnt highlights which show on a white screen, I have ensured full protection at all time so disappointed that this has happens. Overall performance seems OK, I predominately use the pc for photoshop / lightroom outside using for work purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took some updating from out of the box, but is great! Laptop arrived and set up fairly quickly. Audio at first (like others may have said) is very choppy but I believe this was fixed by either updating drivers or updating Nahimic The laptop is actually slightly thicker than I expected height wise but does (barely) fit into my rucksack. Build quality seems fine, backlit keyboard is okay but at a low enough angle it feels like you can see individual lights underneath rather than the blurred backlit display, particularly on the F(n) keys. Hardly a problem but I gave 4* for quality because of this when in reality if there were a 4.5 option I would choose that. In terms of running games, here are some that I have tested out: League of Legends on medium graphics runs at >100 FPS Euro Truck Simulator 2 runs fine on max graphics Hearthstone plays fine in fullscreen on high (although I'm having audio problems with it, might or might not be related to the laptop) Civilization V runs fine on ultra but it does take time to load textures upon opening a world. Overall I'd recommend the laptop, it has been fine so far although I've only had it for a month.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unhappy with the product I'm really unhappy with the overall quality of this computer. Despite its quick processing and gaming capabilities the display has let it down. The colours are terrible and so is the sound, I do a lot of video editing and this was the primary reason for my purchase and I would like to either obtain a refund or swap it for another computer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Laptop is great, however the speakers incomprehensibly bad for this price. Bought the laptop during first term of uni for gaming and i guess work occasionally. Does both very well can run GTA V on above medium settings fine although a feel as if RAM is sometimes lacking. However had a few problems with audio on the laptop. Constant cracking noises which have now disappeared but were very noticeable during first few weeks but never happened again when i uninstalled Norton. Also the actual speakers on the laptop are well, trash. Have earphones or other speakers anything really is better than the laptop speakers. Furthermore if you have a headset with a mic attached to it more often than not, expect it not to work on this laptop. However in general it's a great laptop for most stuff just no audio. Would i recommend it? No. Why? I'm a Northern Irish uni student studying Biochemistry in England due to a series of unfortunate events who spent too much on this laptop when i could've spent it on drinking and other student activities like buying stuff i really won't and don't need but will still get anyway. Also i'm horrid at reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This laptop is excellent value for money, runs the latest games at good quality. Some issues with the audio drivers but easily rectifiable with updates. Also delivered very quickly by scan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, top performance I've had my MSI GP 62 6QF Leopard Pro for just over a month now and am very happy with it. I searched for a long time for a laptop which gave me a very good graphics card, SSD drive and CPU combination for under £1000 and this laptop is a great find. The SSD drive isn't the biggest, but that can be swapped out easily enough when I get round to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product, excellent value This laptop has so many features and a level of performance that you would expect from a machine costing double. Excellent value and the service from Scan was superb, especially after Amazon had managed to lose the same item twice, so i was getting desperate to have it delivered.

Installing more RAM

Hi, I've just purchased this laptop a couple of hours ago and look forward to it being delivered. So far, the service has been great! I'm an IT student on a HND course at college in Liverpool, but I'm still not clear exactly on components designed for laptops as the college basically focuses more on desktop systems. As a result, I'd really appreciate it if you could help me by providing me with a URL to the RAM compatable with the GP62 (from Scan, obviously) so that I have a definite model that I can install on the laptop at a later date to upgrade it from an 8GB to say 16GB or higher. Kind Regards, Jonny
Asked by: IchBinJonny
Hello Jonny, I cannot provide you with a URL as you ask, but I would ask you why you feel that you might need more than 8Gb RAM. I have a floorstanding gaming PC with 16Gb RAM and have run 3 concurrent instances of Elite:Dangerous and the memory used for that was only half of what was available. End of the day depends on how you are using your PC. I work in IT myself, and the only time I ever saw memory being a bottleneck was when high demand VMs were being spun up. But I don't think you would be generally buying a gaming focussed PC to run lots of VMs. Use your lovely new PC to do what you are used to doing, and worry about any deficiencies when you encounter them...for my two cents I think it might be some time before you do!

Audio Issues

Hi there. I noted that some of the reviews mention audio issues and having to upgrade drivers. Are there known audio issues and how recent would be the manufacture date on the items currently in stock. I'm just wondering if by now the drivers would have been updated by the manufacturer? thanks
Asked by: eJoeB
Hi eJoeB, Unfortunately, having up-to-date drivers on delivery would be unlikely, and you can expect to have to go through the update process for roughly upto a day in some cases with most devices, of all variations. This is because software and drivers are updated and patched after the point where the products are shipped to the retailers, and before they are purchased by consumers. In terms of sound, I've had mine from Scan for about 2 weeks now and it's great! The only negative is the sound. I've just plugged my Marshall earphones into the audio drive just now actually, and the sound quality is quite dismal, which contradicts the quality I receive from my headphones when I plug them into my standard Samsung budget smartphone. I actually had severe distortion and had to refer to google to be able to troubleshoot the issue. Someone suggested removing the add-on audio driver "Nahimic" in order to rectify the issue, and that seemed to work. Reverting back to the standard Relate was the best thing to do in this situation. Other than that, the laptop is great! Plenty of RAM, storage and CPU competency! It's just a shame it's slightly let down by the sound issues. Any more questions, don't hesitate to ask! Kind Regards, Jonny

more memory please

i would like to add more memory to this if I buy it, can you add the memory or do I have to buy and fit myself? I cant find anywhere where it says the speed of the memory please can you tell me what it is? I would like to add a single 16gb memory sodimm to give me the option of replacing the existing 8gb with another 16gb at a later date. please can you advise what you have in stock that would be compatible Thanks Rob
Asked by: Rob001
Hello, Unfortunately we are not able to add memory and fit it for you I'm afraid you'd need to purchase this separately and fit it, also ensure this doesn't void your warranty with MSI. Alternatively you can select a 3XS system which we can fully customise. Regards,
