Is it really IPS?
Yes, it really is.
The screen is a 15.6-inch IPS-level 144Hz display.
Why is it called the “IPS-level” display? Because the word, “IPS” is already patented by a manufacturer that is not the one that produces the screen of this laptop. Hence MSI says the “IPS-level” display.
However, this MSI GL65 Leopard 10SFK-062 packs the IPS screen which has outstanding viewing angles, with ~ 3ms response time which happens to be fantastic for an IPS panel. In addition to these fantastic response time and viewing angles, the screen refresh rate is 144Hz, which will make your gaming experience lightning fast and snappy.
For the screen’s brightness and color gamut, it measures about 300 nits and closes to 100% sRGB which is perfectly fine.
Best RGB Keyboard!
The MSI GL65 Leopard 10SFK-062’s keyboard is going to be the best RGB keyboard you will ever see. MSI RGB keyboards are well-known to be very nice looking.
You can control the lighting individually for each key with the included software in the machine. You can also choose the lighting template that you like for your keyboard backlit. There are many templates you can choose from, Chakra, Drain, Plain, Rainbow Split, and so on.
Typing on this MSI gaming laptop is a really good experience. They also include a Numpad on the right which can be very useful if you do a lot of calculations on your laptop.
Below the power button on the top right, there are two shortcut buttons to run the laptops fan at the maximum speed and to change the RGB backlighting of your keyboard keys.
About the touchpad, it’s a Windows precision touchpad that has two dedicated mouse buttons on it which is very useful. I personally prefer a laptop that has these buttons rather than no touchpad buttons at all.
2x Giant Speakers 3W
MSI includes the special Giant Speakers on this laptop, you can find them underside of the device on the left and right-hand side.
For a laptop, the speakers are really good. I am positively surprised by both the loudness and the clarity of the sound they can produce.
Gigabit Ethernet Port and More!
For connectivity, MSI GL65 Leopard 10SFK-062 comes with a very good variety of ports. 1x USB Type-C, 3x USB 3, 1x HDMI 2 that supports 4K at 60Hz, mini DisplayPort, Bluetooth 5.1, SD card reader (XC/HC), Gigabit Ethernet port, WiFi 6, and 720HD webcam, and onboard microphone.
Amazon is currently listing this beast as Amazon’s choice, this explains its quality and the satisfaction of the users. So if you are into gaming on the fly then this laptop definitely has the specs to give you competitive gaming experience.
It has a light compact factor for a 15-inch gaming laptop, the 2nd best GPU the RTX 2070 inside (which performs close to gaming desktop), and the 6-cores, 12-threads i7 Intel processor, as well as of course the impressive IPS 144Hz display.
The MSI GL65 Leopard 10SFK-062 is really a solid and ultra-powerful gaming machine.
