Fantastic machine

5/5
I’ll be honest, because honesty is what the consumer seeks. I spent hours researching if I should aim for Intel or AMD. Then get the most for the money spent. After reading good things about Ryzen what finally made me choose this machine was the long review someone (Tom - Relatively Tech Savvy ) had already written. For my work and for gaming this product is a superb all rounder like the review said. Myself and my son love Call of Duty Warzone, GTA V, Fortnite and this machine handles them all with no issues. The Xbox is becoming a placemat. I use adobe products for my job and again, fantastic. The review helped as the guy also used adobed software. Comparing similar machines on other sites that have just an 256gb ssd drive I feel this machine is great value with 512gb ssd plus a 1TB second drive which I load the games onto. Quickly loads up. I personally like the RGB lighting it comes with and the software for the light allows you to change to a specific colour or other effects. I was more interested in the performance rather than lighting up the room but I like the lighting and is not over the top. I would definitely recommend this machine. The time researching, plus the honest effort put in the review I read, paid off.

Great machine but make sure you know what you're paying for!

4/5
Firstly, this is a fantastic device. If you're looking for a solid, all-rounder that can handle relatively high quality gaming and creative tasks like video editing then this machine is perfect. I went from a 2012 macbook pro to this device and my god the speed and power increase is immeasurable. Trust me, I spent literally days researching and finding the best value for money and after all my findings I looked upon this device as an absolute box ticker. My web traffic alone has likely created falsified reports to the Currys, Argos, AO, John Lewis and many more marketing teams. The specs of this device are decen for the price point. I would only wish that there was more RAM included but that stuff is expensive. I'm much happier with the inclusion of the solid state drive. As good as this machine is it has its drawbacks, which in my sleep-deprived, near manic state on my quest to find the right PC, I easily overlooked. But I will list out EXACTLY what is good, and not so good about this device. The Good: - The 6-core Radion CPU makes lightwork of any task before it. I use Adobe apps like Photoshop, Premiere Pro and After Effects all at once with no issue. Side note - this CPU also uses hyperthreading meaning it is way more efficient in processing information (if you're doing creative work this is important) - The GPU makes graphics processing for games like Doom 2016 absolute child's play on high settings. I'm not sure what FPS I am getting but this thing performs way better than my Xbox One X - The device powers on and boots up in seconds thanks to the M.2 NVMe hard drive. These things are expensive so for a 512GB one to be included was a big bonus. - The RGB lighting, while not the best, is a nice addition and I enjoy looking at it through the included glass panel - The USB-C port on the front is massively convenient and while currently underused, it will definitely help future-proof the device. - Upgradeability. There is plenty of capability to upgrade this device. Three additional RAM slots means more room for memory. There's also loads of room for expanding the storage which I will likely be doing in the near future. I'd advise another 2TB HDD. - Plenty of USB ports for peripherals. And now to look at the drawbacks: - No WiFi included - You will need to buy a dongle separately - I found one on amazon and slapped it in the back - problem solved. - No Bluetooth. Now this one did annoy me a bit and it could have just been my machine, but the MSI specs did show that Bluetooth is supposed to be included, however in my device it was not. Again, easily resolved with another dongle. In summary I am really pleased with this device. If you're looking for your next gaming PC or editing device, or both then I would absolutely reccomend this machine in the current market. The combination of components work well together and with small additional investments you can easily make substantial upgrades. Just be aware that when you're buying a tower PC that all you are getting is a tower PC. Monitors, mice, keyboards and other peripherals are not included, which is the norm. This also means you will need to connect speakers or a headset to hear sound. One last thing; it's a gaming PC, therefore it's a big boy and takes up a lot of desk space. It's more a 'Desk-under' than a 'Desktop' however I have just about enough room and I like the lights so I keep it on my desktop. 4.5/5 - would buy again

Great product
