MSI GX623X-026CZ

Mark: Average

I also bought a replacement notebook about 4 months ago.

Now I'm running on MSI GX623X (version GX623X-026CZ to be more precise).

http://www.dailydigitals.com/msi-gx623-elegant-laptop.html

I'm running on both cores, with full widescreen 1680x1050 support. BIOS is very "friendly", you can turn AHCI on/off. Some BIOS versions also offer "a ton" (!) of other settings - including i.e. the NorthBridge and SouthBridge chipset settings. This notebook is also sold without the OS by default, although since this is a gaming notebook, I have installed Win as a gaming console on second partition as well. It has a full keyboard including numerical part, although since - again - this is a gaming notebook, the keyboard is modified a bit. The pricing is very "friendly" too. I'm generally very satisfied with this one. Although there are some drawbacks:

  • - wireless (Intel Wifi 5100) is not working/not supported currently. I also saw modifications with i.e. Intel 4965AGN or something similar, so if you are patient, you will find those configurations too. If you opt for cable only, then you should have no issues here,
  • - there are slight problems with Intel / Realtek HD Audio - but this is a general issue with Uniaudio, so should be solved within the upcoming months. Currently I HAVE audio support, the only issue is the stability of audio. Don't worry, it will be possible to play MP3s and watch DVDs and porn on the internet Wink ,
  • - ATI Mobility Radeon HD4670 runs very well with Panorama, no issues here,
  • - BlueTooth + FireWire + CardReader + WebCam are of course not supported currently on OS/2.
  • - honestly have no idea about support of pccard slot - not using it.

One side note here: should somebody think about ranting for the missing support in eCS for some hardware, know this: Windows 7 (that super modern, technologically superior must have OS everybody is using anyway, you know Smiley ) does not detect Wireless, FireWire, card reader and webcam upon installation as well. The sound support is not that stable - requires re-installation of original Realtek drivers. So from a certain perspective, eCS (2.0 RC7) is on my laptop >even< with Win7 Wink

Previous report:


The notebook is quite usable.
  • Gigabit LAN (Rt8111) and sound card (Intel HDA ALC886H) are autodetected on installation.
  • Wireless (Intel Link 5100) does not work currently as well as wide screen support (1680x1050 - widescreen activator for Panorama VESA does not detect Intel chipset).
  • ACPI (3.17) partially works, is not able to correctly detect the CPU, manufacturer etc, although is able to initialize both CPU cores (!).
  • Intel SpeedStep and thermal stats are not working, no Sleep states.
  • USB and DVD drive working.
  • Note: for successful installation (eCS 2.0 RC7 [Silver] tested) go to BIOS and deactivate AHCI support, otherwise the installer will not be able to find CD-ROM drive.
