Consumer review (newegg.com)

7 months. So far so good

 

I recommend Msi for the performance to price ratio. I have a desktop and a laptop from MSI and the performance is outstanding for the price.

I bought this quite some time ago and ive had zero issues with its performance. I can play any game with 30+ on ultra as of 2015

Maybe some more color options would be nice.

Great bang for your buck!

 

This is an outstanding overall laptop! It can handle all of my games with ease, it only failed when I downloaded way too many mods in Skyrim. I bought this on sale and found it to be amazing from the screen resolution to the fan boost. On top of it...

Only one thing was wrong with this, and it was that some of the laptop edges were a bit sharp.

You are only as good as the people you get into bed with

 

For those of you not familiar with MSI products, they have a ‘loyalty points' program where you can earn points towards MSI hardware when you post a positive review of the product(s) you bought. It is a great idea and a very inexpensive way from them...

I decided to take a chance with MSI after 3 ASUS gaming laptops in a row. What made me bite was the fact Newegg had it on as a shellshocker and the 100 dollar rebate. I never buy because of the rebate, and most of the time I don't even submit the paper...

Am I upset about not getting the rebate? Yes I am. 5% of my anger is about the money. The other 95% is about the deception of MSI through the rebate company. They say, you buy our product and we will send you X amount of money back. I lived up to my...

Great Laptop

 

A warning to everyone out there. If you buy this laptop and leave it as is you will probably be disappointed. I know I was when I first fired it up. The bottle neck in the system is the 1TB HDD they have with it. I put another 8GB stick of RAM in...

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M. 17.3" Screen. It's very good quality. I'm very happy with the color. 8GB of RAM in a single stick with an open slot just above it. (You won't need to remove the keyboard to get to these ones!) It's Kingston brand RAM by the...

And here are the cons... The Bluetooth doesn't work. I don't know why, I've tried driver after driver but after installing Windows 8.1 on a HDD I put in I've gotten nothing out of it. Even before I install the new HDD the Bluetooth would cut out on me....

Excellent Value

 

Not a big fan of Windows 8.x, but warmed up to it enough to use it. Wish this had the option of Windows 7 without paying for a downgrade. Good value for the money. Equal to other systems that costs half again as much!

Excellent unit! This is a gaming unit, but I don't game, I wanted it because I do some amateur photography that is CPU intensive. It handles this just fine. Good monitor for what I use it for. Opposed to others the keyboard seems solid to me. Flip up...

Battery life is a bit on the short side. Varies for me from about 2 hrs to 4 hrs. (even after calibration) Not a big deal to me ; I find it annoying that when I disable the touchpad with the disable button, itz "forgets" that after restarting or even...
