    and how is this better than OLED ? It consumes much power and is still worse, because when you have a picture with a great variety of colors, the blacks will still look washed out, because you cannot switch off an LED in an area where there is still some color.

    This is NOT MiniLED display! How they call so backlit display? MiniLED works like OLED just uses better inorganic LED's.

    Someone tell why can't we use OLED instead of mini and micro LED screens. OLEDs are as much bright, colour accurate and the new OLEDs doesn't seem to have the burn in issues as much as the previous one.

    • Sandip Achary
      Sandip Achary

      @vladdx No i asked the wrong question. I meant was contrast ratio. Like blackest black and whitest white, the main property of OLED.

    • vladdx

      @Sandip Achary Accuracy is done by calibration, you probably meant color space coverage. This laptop has over 98% DCI-P3 coverage same as most OLED screens.

    • Sandip Achary
      Sandip Achary

      @vladdx what about colour accuracy ?

    • vladdx

      @Sandip Achary mini LED has 2 advantages over OLED: 1) higher brightness (this laptop reaches 1000 nits but TCL showed a mini LED TV with 4000 nits) with OLED being limited at 800 nits; 2) as all LCD tech there's zero chance of burn in regardless of application being used. Only microLED could compete with mini LED on monitors but it has scalability issues currently.

    • Sandip Achary
      Sandip Achary

      @vladdx Well i think unless they use it with full brightness and have a static image the OLED should be fine (like i said for general consumers). And while we are on the topic what is the advantages of mini LED over OLED ?

    Guess I misunderstood micro led. Thought the whole point was oled performance with lcd durability. This seems just like another led trying to imitate oled with dimming zones that still don't provide the level of contrast oled does.

    If you want to be happy and enjoy your time with a laptop, never, but never buy MSI Creator. This laptop in one sentence: Bunch of high-end parts placed randomly inside of 1.8 kg box labeled as a laptop for creators. Even if you turn off all mighty turbo boost, you will still have heat and power throttling. The battery they market like 8 hours long.. what a joke. Even with battery saver on, I couldn't last 4 hours watching youtube or scrolling through social media. If you are still not convinced ask your self, how`s that the laptop with the same specs is 1-2K more expensive? Good luck

    • vladdx

      @Adnan Burek Maybe that's the case with your laptop which probably has either bad thermal design or you're just bad at configuring CPUs to maximize performance. In my Creator 17 case, after it hits 95C the CPU frequency drops to 4Ghz which is 80% of the 4.8Ghz max turbo when all cores are used. I bet you didn't even attempt undervolting your Intel mobile CPU, which is a must in order to get the best from the CPU and it's a basic thing that everyone who buys high-end laptops knows.

    • Adnan Burek
      Adnan Burek

      @vladdx I can give you proof of me owning this laptop if needed and my CPU knowledge is not important here. This laptop has big thermal problems, true color app sucks, low quality builds, not optimize and that is a fact. What`s the point of having a 3K laptop where you don`t use 60% of its power? With 100% CPU usage it goes to 98C in a second and in the next one CPU usage drops to 35% cause of throttling.

    • vladdx

      @Adnan Burek Not only did you claim you owned a laptop with " i7 10876H" which shows your poor level of knowledge because that CPU doesn't exist but you don't even understand the basics of power throttling. Do you think my laptop with i7-10875H doesn't throttle, or AMD mobile CPUs for that matter? All mobile CPUs will throttle because of the compact size, it's literally unavoidable on a laptop. All that matters to a professional like myself is the time it takes to finish my work and Intel beats AMD in most professional applications.

    • Adnan Burek
      Adnan Burek

      @vladdx From my own experience, using benchmark is not valid option because using laptop on daily basis has much more variaty then justdoing benchamarks. I had MSI Prestige i7 10876H, 32 GB RAM, Rtx 2080 super, powerful machine on paper and benchmark but in real life, even with turbo boost off I had thermal or power throtlling. With my lenovo, which is half of the price and lower specs I get more stable time spent working on my laptop. For a desktop I took ryzen 9 3900x and I am happy with it.

    • vladdx

      @Adnan Burek What metric did you use to compare them? I, who actuallu own this laptop, used Cinebench R20 which scores above Lenovo Legion in both single and multi core tests.

    At that price tag, Apple should switch to oled.

  • Jrteen's

    What about the creator 15? How does that machine compare in terms of specs, size, and display color accuracy for content creating? I am considering that one because of the 99.9 Whr battery, but would love some kind of review of it before committing. Love the content y'all put out. It's helped me so much over the years.

    • vladdx

      @Jrteen's That's good, would you be willing to share the icc profiles after you're done calibrating? I know screens are not equal but it's still worth a shot especially for HDR. Also don't forget you need separate icc profiles for SDR and HDR mode.

    • Jrteen's

      vladdx I do, so I don’t care too much about it being accurate out of the box as long as I can calibrate it to be accurate and cover a large enough color space while being accurate

    • vladdx

      @Jrteen's No, as long as you don't install MSI True Color you're fine. You can just install the icc profile through Windows' color managament without any tools from MSI. Do you have a colorimeter?

    • Jrteen's

      If I have my own calibration tools, would either display be able to be corrected to be more accurate while still covering the adobe rgb space or wider or would true color still be required to install my corrected profile and therefore still causing issues?

    • vladdx

      @Jrteen's Same thing applies for Creator 15 since you're also required to install MSI True Color in order to use calibration profiles from MSI.

    • vladdx

      Well said, working with desktop applications guarantees you'll get burn in on OLED screen down the line. That's why as a professional I chose this laptop instead of one with OLED.

    0:00 for example? marketing? ok I'll buy that one, what else? Apple is always inventing things years before products are on the market. Smartphones for example, people says at 2004 Apple launched first smartphone while android was born and working years ago, long before google bought it after apple's iphone launch. Apple is always last one to make things, usually worse than anyone else, super expensive and peeing on customers
