MSI Aegis 3 review

 

This small gaming PC is powerful and whisper quiet

Small form-factor ; Tons of ports ; So very, very quiet

Surprisingly heavy ; Difficult to open chassis

The MSI Aegis 3's stunningly quiet fans belie its powerful specs and aggressive design, all in a small form factor that's easy to carry.

MSI Aegis 3 Review and Ratings

 

MSI's Aegis 3 is a menacing light show of a compact PC, with funky angles, LEDs galore, and Pascal power to grind through your AAA games. And it's a surprising value.

Futuristic, menacing looks ; Excellent gaming pep for so compact a desktop ; Front-mounted HDMI port for VR ; Carry handle ; Included peripherals are much better than average

Large for an SFF desktop ; RGB case lighting looks great, but needs more end-user customizability

The MSI Aegis 3 stretches the definition of an SFF desktop. Its futuristic exterior is a visual icon, complete with RGB case lighting. It looks great from any angle, and it certainly has a lot of those.

Consumer review by: DerSkeptische (mediamarkt.at)

Viel zu teuer!

 

Wer sich einen PC kaufen will und sich denkt der teuerste ist der beste, der liegt hier extrem falsch. Weil, bei Amazon bekommt man für 1900 Euro einen PC mit i7 7700K und GTX 1080. Deshalb muss ich sagen ich finde Saturn und Mediamarkt nicht schlecht...
