Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The chassis remains identical to last year's GF75 9SC and so our existing comments apply here. The red backlit keyboard here is comfortable to type on with both quieter clatter and firmer feedback than on an Asus Zephyrus or HP Omen. Wireless is provided by the removable Intel AX201 for 802.11ax connectivity and Bluetooth 5.

MSI's GF-series is a series of affordable gaming laptops with an upper mid-range performance rating. Despite their similar model numbers, the GF75 10SDR-253 comes with a different panel. Instead of a 120 Hz display the new device is equipped with a 144 Hz display with similar specs. The storage device of MSI's choosing is a 512 GB large Samsung PM991 M.2 SSD.

Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
MSI GF75 Thin is marketed explicitly to gamers with its striking red-and-black design. MSI has chosen the six-core Intel Core i7-8750H for its thin gamer. Although the MSI GF75 is equipped with a fast SSD from Kingston and 16 GB of RAM, it is one of the slowest devices in our comparison field.

Pros[**]
  • Matte display with good contrast ratio
  • Good battery life
  • Good system performance
  • Fast SSD
Cons[**]
  • Slow Wi-Fi
  • Slow SSD
  • Only one year of warranty

Sentiment Score[*] 50%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The most noticeable drawback of the display is its relatively slow black-white and gray-gray response times. We would have liked to see MSI push higher-tier 120 Hz or 144 Hz panels as standard for the budget category. The CPU and GPU each get a fan and a pair of heat copper pipes. The cooling does not overlap between the processors which is rare for a budget gaming laptop.

Pros[**]
  • Relatively low CPU and GPU temperatures when gaming
  • Decent battery life for a budget gaming laptop
  • Relatively quiet during low-medium loads
  • Fast SD card reader
Cons[**]
  • High power consumption when running both Core i7-9750H and GTX 1660 Ti graphics simultaneously
  • Slow black-white and gray-gray response times compared to the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti
  • Only one USB Type-C port
