Good spec on the MSi GE63 Raider, especially when you use the extra 10% so £749. However, very cheap plastic construction, 120Mhz TN Panel, 1 Hr Battery life when Gaming, and only 1 Year Warranty from Currys/PC World but when bought from MSi direct and other retailers you get 2 Yr warranty!
The cooling on MSi's is a lot better than on HP's, but screen is better on the Omen. What is one to do?
Brrrrrr!!!! Its quite chilly in here

Fair play, that is hilarious! Really,really funny. Kids, come and have a look at this. Now that is comedy gold. Remember the name. zenwon. Definitely going places. OK so it didn't add anything to the discussion and they could have just scrolled by and saved themselves 2 whole minutes, but surely it was worth it?

I cannot find the screen details on the Currys website, but all YouTube reviews and the MSi website says that it is a 120Hz 3ms panel which can be upgraded to an 144Hz IPS. The MSi website don't have the GE63 8RE listed anymore, but do have an GE63 8SE with the same spec.If you buy one from Currys Ebay website beware, they have 2 listings for the same GE63 8RE model, one at £799 and one listing at £999. I cannot see what the difference between specs are for both listings.
I have heard that Currys customer service is a nightmare though. You cannot return an item if you have opened the box and switch the product on, both if you have bought an item in-store or online. It puts me off from buying from Currys now!

Don't buy from Currys. Especially for computing products. My friend bought an all in one PC and it broke after 13 months. Currys wouldn't do anything not even if he paid for the repair.

Depends on the warranty though. Currys only offer 1 year, whilst in the case of this laptop MSi and other retailers actually offer 2 years MSi warranty. When I asked Currys why this was they just said that's all they offer.
Currys like selling you a product but don't like it when you complain! Unfortunately Currys is the cheapest for this laptop by at least £150 so does one risk it?

This thread suggests that the 8RE has been confirmed as a 60hz tn by both msi and curry’s, would love to be proven wrong though!

Nope, it's an 120Hz according to MSi. Follow this link msi.com/Lap…ion
The laptop at £799 is now out of stock I guess as it is now no longer showing on the Currys Ebay site
