My second issue is the speakers. They. Are. Abysmal. I have heard better sound coming out of a cheap children's toy. They are tinny and high pitched whiny at best and sound very echo-y. Even with the included Nihimic sound tweaking software I cannot for the life of me get them to sound satisfactory. They are also located on the bottom of the laptop which adds to the awful muffled sound even when sitting on a flat surface. My former cheapo 2015 Acer laptop and my extremely old 2012 MACBOOK sound way better than this.
My final big issue is battery life. I understand gaming laptops have never been good on battery life but this one, or at least mine, only lasts about an hour unplugged regardless of what it is doing or how many background processes I shut off. The very first thing I did with this when I unboxed it (after letting it charge to full before even turning it on) was run the included MSI Dragon Center software and used the battery calibrate function to improve battery life. Well clearly it didn't help. I can't even have Chrome running something on Hulu or Youtube without draining roughly 1% per minute! And to run a game? Forget about it, you get maybe 10-20 minutes of a non-demanding (that is to say one that doesn't even make the fans kick up) game before this thing is dead from a 100% full battery charge.
One minor issue is the USB placement. There is only one on the left and two on the right at the very front. If you plug anything into either of those it often gets in the way of moving your mouse around. Tolerable, but quite annoying unless you're playing on a spacious surface and can stretch your arm out a bit. The AC adapter plug is also in the middle of the right side and can get in your way as well. The cord for it is very thick and sticks out about 1" from where it plugs in. The charger's power brick is also a massive 6.75" x 3.5" x 1" and a bit awkward to travel with.
The fans can run pretty loud especially if you hit the turbo cooler button but this really doesn't bother me, nor do I really play anything that makes them kick up too much. They can be loud enough that it sounds like someone is running a hair dryer or vacuum in the next room over. So if you'll be gaming in a place where it's quiet, like a library or college, people around you WILL notice the sound. World of Warcraft on all max settings is as strong of a game I will ever play on this. The fans only kick up when a lot of effects are happening on the screen and it only maintains an average of 85fps (45 in a raid setting with many spell effects going off) with these settings. Completely unnoticeable difference from the 60fps of my other computers.
Now onto the PROS: The hardware itself is extremely powerful for the price and the build of the laptop is top notch. The lid and screen are encased in metal while the bottom is a fairly sturdy feeling thick plastic. The screen does not feel flimsy or jiggle when being opened or getting jostled. The laptop itself is a gorgeous work of art and the included software for the Per-Key lighting is fun to play around with. You can even make different lighting profiles for every single program that it will automatically switch to using for whichever is running in the foreground. The MSI Dragon Center software is also amazing. It can monitor everything inside your PC, things that you'd normally have to check in the BIOS or use another program to monitor. Like fan RPM, CPU/GPU temps, how much RAM/CPU/GPU power is being used ect. It can also keep all your most important drivers up to date with one click in addition to a plethora of other handy things. It also lets you tweak those settings for everything it monitors.
The internal webcam is of decent quality and the internal mic is also pretty decent as well. The keys have a great feel and response to them, as does the trackpad. One thing I really like is when you hold down the Function key it highlights the keys you can use while holding that button down.
If you are planning to only play the latest AAA titles and FPS this would be a great buy. However if you're like me and enjoy the older games on Steam/Uplay ect you may find yourself frustrated quickly. You may want to also consider having a headset or bluetooth speaker to pair with this since the internal speakers sound nearly ear-bleed worthy.
UPDATE: I decided to keep this laptop after not being able to find a satisfactory replacement in the same range. I have made quite a few improvements since my first review roughly a month prior. I discovered the terrible sound was because of the Nihimic sound program. Once I shut that down and let the default Realtek audio driver control it the sound is completely fine now, no more tinny awful ear-bleeding sounds coming out of my speakers. Do yourself a favor and delete that trash Nihimic program. However the speakers still sound muffled being on the bottom but sound much better when I have the laptop elevated a bit in the front. Many of the older game incompatibility issues I was having have slowly been resolved with a lot of extra tweaking and work. Some games however still will not work correctly, nor do I believe they ever will. Other than that I have honestly been loving this laptop the more time I spend with it. I'm able to look past it's few terrible design flaws (speaker placement, usb placement, charger plug placement, awful battery) but they are always going to be a constant pain in the butt I can live with. I even contacted customer service about the speaker issue and they got back to me fairly promptly and were very courteous. Although with the poor speaker placement and terrible battery life I still find myself bringing my MacBook instead to play music and video when I am up and about and not planning to game. This laptop basically needs to be plugged at all times...kind of defeats the purpose of a laptop wouldn't you say? My battery also won't charge to full even though I have the battery profile set to do so. I plan to contact MSI about the junky battery next.
I own an MSI GE62 6QD Apache Pro with an NVIDIA GTX 960M graphics card, 128ssd 1 TBHDD i7-6700HQ 2.6 GHz. It's a great machine and I love it. But with the whole work from home thing, I screwed up and for the first time since the dawn of laptops, I toppled mine and cracked the screen. I figure, hey, it's four years old, I should get a new one and use the old one as a back up when I replace the screen.
The MSI GP65 Leopard 10SEK-048 is a major disappointment.
The AC cord connects in the center of the the side, not in the back of the side. I have enough trouble with cables being in my way and this is ALWAYS in the way.
2 USB ports are on the very front of the side on the right. Again, who wants a cable right where your right hand is reaching for a drink? Much less 2? If you don't use many USB peripherals, this may not be an issue for you.
Less than an hour of battery life. How does this even make sense for a notebook? No matter what you are doing, even on the lowest brightness and saver setting. LESS than an hour. My four year old GE62 gets 2.5 hours still.
Sleep? Good luck with that. On sleep, even with the lid closed, mine wakes up every three hours and cycles through something, then goes back to sleep. Don't leave it unplugged and think sleep will do you any good at all.
The camera. I don't understand it. Maybe its because the screen is sharper, but the quality of the camera appears far worse than my GE62.
The speakers. Really not worth much at all. Even plugging the laptop into a 32" TV with an HDMI cable didn't help the sound much. It was quite sad.
Pretty keys, if you like colors
Sharp screen for watching your less than an hour of video or playing your less than an hour of games or conversing with anyone on Zoom or Skype for less than an hour. Unless you don't want to be mobile and just want to plug in your power cable.
Fast. There is no denying the speed.
Multi tasks well. I am a person who keeps several things going at a time. Excel is a notorious memory thief and I am famous for having dozens of massive spreadsheets open and working, along with Netflix, Photoshop, image editing programs, and maybe running a game on the side. It doesn't affect the performance of this machine at all.
Much as I wanted to love this machine, I'm barely able to use it at all. It's useless as a notebook, has a terrible design for the power cord and USB ports, is a disappointment in so many basic ways. But the deal breaker is the lack of battery life. What is the point of a notebook where you can't take it mobile? If all you want is a processor and a graphics card to plug monitors into for game play, there are better choices out there.
Update 2020-5-1: Through no help of the (admittedly very nice) help desk, I finally found a way to extend the battery life on my personal computer (no guarantees it will help anyone else). I shut down the Dragon Center completely. With Dragon Center up, I get 1 hour and 18 minutes of browsing time, doing absolutely nothing else. By opening task manager and completely ending the Dragon Center task, so it isn't running in the background, I increased my battery time to 4 hours of browsing time. At first I thought it might be my keys so I set it to Super Battery (which turns off the lighted keys). Did not help. So I checked to see what was affecting my battery life. Dragon Center appeared at the top. Shutting down Dragon center reset the battery life to nearly five hours, but I only got four hours out of it (I shut it down before it died, so maybe four hours and 15 minutes). This is light browsing: Amazon, eBay, reading articles, posting on couple of forums. Nothing that takes any real CPU processing power or RAM. Will update again once I have recharged and run the battery through some real work but wanted to post this in case anyone else had this issue and it could help.

I get that mistakes happen but LET PEOPLE KNOW who have already ordered it, maybe?
Unfortunately, none of that matters due to the sounds of this laptop. Throughout my game time the laptop kept very cool when compared to other laptops, but it came at the cost of a very loud fan. While this is understandable, and I could have over looked it, if the speakers weren’t so bad. This is where this laptop fails, and fails hard. The speakers have an echo like whine to them, that makes all sounds muted and flat. Even when I could hear the speakers over the fan, I preferred for them to be muted, because they sound so bad.
