MSI Creator 15 A10SFS-287 Review And Specification


MSI Creator 15 A10SFS-287 Review And Specification

Before the year is over, the MSI Creator 15 A10SFS-287 will have had its commercial premiere at CES 2021. The laptop has a strong processor and is ideal for creative tasks like editing photos and videos.

Our evaluation unit stands out from the competition with an eight-core Intel Core i7 processor and a XXXL-size battery that provides exceptional performance and nearly 10 hours of battery life. Even while it lacks a mini-LED display like the one found on the MSI Creator 17, it is still much sleeker than the related MSI P65 Creator 9SF.

Its hot-running chassis and'meh' keyboard prevent it from receiving our Editors' Choice award, but we still suggest it above the Asus ProArt StudioBook 15 because to its superior feature set.

Again, the Creator 15 is a better option than the excellent gaming Razer Blade 15 Base Model. but, does not deliver as much performance for the money you will spend on it.

Although the MSI Creator 15 has a standard port option, there is only one USB Type A connector, therefore users will still need to purchase adapters. These can be used with the single USB Type C port, whereas Thunderbolt 3 has a wide range of uses.

The air slots on either side of the laptop have been moved toward the front, which means that depending on how you use the ports, wires will undoubtedly be in the way. Additionally, there is an HDMI port and an SD card reader. Intel Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 provide wireless connectivity.


MSI Creator 15 A10SFS-287 Design

The 4K (38402160) screen that came with my evaluation unit meets all the requirements for creative work. Surprisingly, its lovely display surface doesn't carry the annoying reflections that some glossy displays do, producing a clean picture.

The display's supporting hinges are sufficiently rigid to reduce wobble when cooperating but still permit one-handed lid opening and use. One of the greatest screens you can get in a workstation laptop for professional artists, with high color coverage (MSI puts this panel at 72 percent of NTSC gamut, or close to 100 sRGB coverage) and plenty of brightness.

When paired with the previously mentioned 75% (AdobeRGB), the MSI A10SFS-287 laptop's good contrast ratio of 1326:1 and peak brightness of 464 cd/m2 produce colorful and clear screen content.

Users can customize color profiles while using the preinstalled MSI Creator Center, which allows them to change how the screen displays colors.

Keyboard & Touchpad

MSI Creator 15 A10SFS-287 Keyboard

The Creator 15's island-style keyboard's main selling points are its two levels of white backlighting and nicely sized keys. Although typing is simple because to the shallow 1.5mm key travel, there is very little tactile feedback.

The layout issue with this keyboard stems from its ancestors, MSI's own gaming laptops. Function (Fn) key combos are challenging because the wider-than-normal left Ctrl key forces the Fn key to the far right of the spacebar. In the MSI Creator Center, replacing the FN key with the Windows key creates a new issue because it makes the Windows-key challenging.

MSI makes use of a large clickpad with a touch- and swipe-sensitive surface. The built-in fingerprint sensor may be simply engaged by touch or mechanical pressure and doesn't interfere with clicks. The extra width may be handy for tracking in programs like Photoshop, but its practical value in daily life is negligible.

A Battery's Life

The Creator 15 gives a respectable seven hours and 38 minutes of battery life on a single charge during normal use. This is less than the up to 10 hours of battery life MSI claims for this laptop, but battery mileage will always vary depending on how hard you use the device. Seven hours is only adequate when compared to comparable mobile workstations, which have battery lives of over eight hours, like the Dell XPS 15 and the MacBook Pro 13.
