Pros of MSI Bravo 15 (B5DD):
1. The quality of the design feels solid and not cheap
MSI Bravo 15 (B5DD) carries a quite futuristic design and firm angles, but with a color combination that can be considered minimalist. The build quality feels solid and doesn’t reflect that of an entry-level gaming laptop at all.
2. 144 Hz screen
MSI Bravo 15 (B5DD) is equipped with a 15.6-inch IPS-Level Full HD screen, with a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz. Color accuracy is not its main selling point. But for gaming, this screen is quite satisfying.
3. Gaming performance is okay, cooling system works well
The MSI Bravo 15 (B5DD) is equipped with a processor with the option of Ryzen 7 5600H or Ryzen 7 5800H. The embedded GPU is the RX 5500M. Please note, the unit that came to the Yang sophisticated test table was already using 16 GB DDR4 3200MHz dual-channel RAM. Meanwhile, the official version sold in the market is 8 GB DDR4 3200MHz single-channel.
As a result, popular games such as Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Red Dead Redemption 2, Forza Horizon 4, Valorant, DOTA 2, Rainbow Six Siege, and so on can be played smoothly. Of course you have to choose the appropriate graphics settings for each game.
For cooling matters, the MSI Bravo 15 (B5DD) relies on Cooler Boost 5 technology with two fans and 6 pipes that have 15 percent better airflow. Evidently, during play the temperature remains stable and there is no annoying heat in both the palm rest and the WASD area.

Disadvantages of MSI Bravo 15 (B5DD):
1. The body is easily dirty by finger marks
Even though it is dominated by black, unfortunately the MSI Bravo 15 (B5DD) body is still easy to look dirty because it becomes a fingerprint magnet.
2. No card reader
Yes, this laptop does not have a card reader. Less practical for users who often transfer photos or videos from the camera to the PC.
