Test: MSI PS42 8RB Prestige (i7-8550U, GeForce MX150) Laptop (Sammanfattning)

Allen Ngo (översatt av Daniel Eriksson), 09/13/2018

Ett bra första försök. MSI vill utöka sitt utbud till att inkludera fler företagslaptops och PS42 representerar deras första försök att tillverka en modell åt företagskunder på 14 tum och med smal infattning. Resultatet är ett unikt system som på många sätt är jämförbart med XPS 13, men med en längre lista över brister.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
24.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14.8 ms rise
↘ 10 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 38 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (25.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
34.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 16.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 24 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (41.2 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 25000 Hz ≤ 22 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 25000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 22 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 25000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 8898 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

För

+ fullständig GeForce MX150 GPU utan underklockning
+ extremt exakta färger och gråskalor direkt vid leverans
+ kan upprätthålla lägre Turbo Boost-klockfrekvenser
+ silverfärgen gömmer fingeravtryck väl
+ NVMe-stöd (finns som tillval i USA)
+ inget fläktljud vid lägre belastning
+ väldigt lätt och portabel
+ lång batteritid

Emot

- opraktisk placering av Kensington-låset
- ej Thunderbolt 3 eller USB Typ C Gen. 2
- låg maximal Turbo Boost-potential
- svårt att utföra service på RAM och M.2 SSD
- PWM på lägre ljusstyrkenivåer
- suboptimal placering av webbkameran
- SKU:er begränsade till 1x1 WLAN
- högtalarna kunde haft högre ljud
- skärmen kunde varit mer ljusstark
- endast enkelkanals-RAM
- chassit kunde varit fastare
- långsam SD-kortläsare
- svampig clickpad

Läs den fullständiga versionen av den här recensionen på engelska här.

Det finns mycket gott att säga om MSI PS42, men en del nedskärningar är svåra att ignorera. Som exempel begränsar avsaknaden av Thunderbolt 3 anslutbarhet och mångsidighet. Detta hade inte varit ett problem om PS42 var billigare, men den kostar ungefär lika mycket som XPS 13HP Spectre 13 eller MateBook X Pro, som alla har Thunderbolt 3 som standard. En mörkare skärm, långsamt 1x1 WiFi, enkelkanals-RAM, en CPU som presterar i underkant och ett mindre fast chassi känns som en besvikelse när de flesta konkurrenter erbjuder bättre alternativ.

Egenskaper som återupprättar PS42 är låg vikt, en väldigt exakt matt skärm på 1080p och en GeForce MX150 GPU med full kraft. Detta är antagligen den enda modellen på 14 tum som använder en 25 W '1D10' MX150 GPU istället för den långsammare varianten på 10 W. Det går att spela eller utföra grafikintensiva uppgifter utan oro för att GPU:n ska strypas.

Om GPU-prestanda och mobilitet är av yttersta vikt kan PS42 vara ett bra alternativ. Annars vore det bättre att investera 2.000 - 3.000 kronor mer i en MateBook X Pro på 13.9 tum, då den är starkare när det kommer till ordbehandling och vardagsanvändning.

PS42 är ett respektabelt första försök av MSI att skapa en företagslaptop med smal infattning, stark grafikprestanda, låg vikt och exakta färger. Men trots det innebär en mängd nedskärningar att MSI fortfarande har en lång väg att gå innan de kan stå sida vid sida med mer vana Ultrabook-tillverkare.
