The MSI GT80 2QE Titan SLI-023UK is not your typical gaming machine as it delivers an excellent combination of high-end hardware with a good set of features that are specifically aimed at gamers everywhere. To start, this may be the first gaming laptop built with a mechanical keyboard. That alone can make this machine to be more satisfying to type with than many of its competitors. But if portability is your thing, then you may want to look elsewhere since you may have trouble fitting the 18.4-inch machine into your bag.
The MSI GT80 2QE Titan SLI-023UK is Indeed a Giant in More Ways Than One
Since it includes a mechanical keyboard, the MSI GT80 2QE Titan SLI-023UK is clear that it is meant for gaming. Furthermore, because of this inclusion, it takes inspiration from desktop PCs. It may very well be trying to mimic a desktop computer in terms of size as well. The trackpad (which is located to the right of the keyboard) and the 18.4-inch screen are bigger than just about any of its rivals.
Highlighting the keyboard even more, it is made by the experts found at SteelSeries and has been built with CherryMX Brown switches. The keys are fast and tactile, and they are quieter that the company’s own blue, green, red, or black switches. This is great to avoid any annoyance from fellow gamers.
The lid has a dragon gaming logo and sleek red lines. The wide area found at the top of the keyboard is decorated with a subtle MSI Dragon Gaming logo. The overall build quality of the GT80 2QE Titan SLI-023UK is good as what you would expect from a laptop of such size. After all, it has to be strong to support its own heft.
The 18.4-inch screen has a matte finish to provide anti-glare properties. Its native resolution is 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. While this may be adequate, but it does not promote balance for a screen of its size. It should have been made with a higher resolution to avoid having to use the awful Windows’ scaling tools.
But aside from the native resolution, visuals in games are of good quality. It is brighter than a lot of laptop screens already out in the market. Black levels are good and colors are deep with punchy contrast. Colors do not look washed out or muted at all.
Looking and making use of the MSI GT80 2QE Titan SLI-023UK, you will find it to be one of the fastest, if not the fastest gaming laptop you could get your hands on. Its mechanical keyboard is a boon to gamers everywhere. Even though it is big, hefty, and is unforgiving when it comes to its price point, every penny spent on it promotes great value.
