The MSI Trident 3 is a handsome and compact gaming PC. Between the styling of the case and its size, MSI's mini desktop isn't all that different than an Xbox One or PS4. At just 13.6 x 3.8 x 2.8 inches and 7 pounds, the Trident should slide into your entertainment center just fine, and it's light enough to carry in a backpack. There's even an included stand for those who'd prefer to prop the PC up vertically. As a gaming PC made for living rooms, the Trident does an excellent job of placing its most essential ports front and center. You'll have easy plug-and-play access to two USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type-C port, headphone and mic jacks, and even a front-facing HDMI port made specifically for connecting a VR headset.

MSI Trident 3 Arctic 8RD 002US - DTS - Core i7 8700 3.2 GHz - 16 GB - 1.256 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Deal With the GTX 1070 GPU you can play all the latest games on highest graphic settings. I played SOTTR for a while, for hours in a row, no sign of over-heating, running smoothly all the time. The fan noise is not too much, in fact, it gets completely lost in the sound of the game. The PC looks fantastic (subjective). The small size (reason I bought it) allows for portability easily. You can definitely fit it in a carry-on bag surrounded with clothes to protect against impacts. It can even fit in a backpack. Plenty of HDMI and USB ports (has USB 3.1 and C as well). Comes with a set of mouse and keyboard which I didn't need to use so I have no comments of them. The price is significantly more affordable than other competitors with the same specs. The build quality is spotless. You could easily see that they have aimed for perfection and I believe they have nailed it.To mention issues, the HDMI cable that came in the box is way too short (about 20 cm). There is a bunch of bloatware pre-installed which you can get rid of. Does not come with speakers so you have to buy separately.With so much elegance, practicality and high-end specs, and an affordable price, and no major issues, I definitely recommend it with a 5 star. Would buy it again 1000 times. Don't get put off by the fact that it is a Chinese brand, I have owned an MSI all-in-one gaming PC for 6 years and it never let me down. I promise you will not regret buying this product.Final note: I did not purchase this product from CDW, but where I bought it from doesn't have it anymore so I was unable to post a review there and I really wanted to write a review for this. So I am here!
