Consumer review (newegg.com)

Fantastic!

 

When I got this, it was the cheapest laptop with the 970m in it, at $1200 which I thought was impossible, well, its not! BUT THIS NOW! YOU WILL LOVE IT! (I edited this after a few months of having this laptop) I also intend on replacing the DVD drive...

I love the multicolor keyboard. Right now its slowly going through the colors of the rainbow. It does bleed a bit of blue and green in the ctrl key, the numpad enter key, and the left third of the spacebar. As far as graphics go, I can have World of...

Fans can get fairly loud, as they reach 6000 rpm when you hit the fan button (don't remember the real name) With some headphones, most of that sound is gone. The laptop has a loose piece or 2 that vibrate with high pitched sounds, when you set the...

Great Product for the Price

 

I'm glad I ignored the previous reviews when I first bought this thing. It had 2/5 stars when I bought it the week of Black Friday. After testing it out for a few days, I bought another one for my niece who I introduced to World of Warcraft in hopes...

I got this during Black Friday Week with a free 17 inch laptop bag and I must say that it's a superb laptop for $1200. It runs on Ultra settings when you play World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2, Dragon Age 3, and League of Legend. There was some bloatware,...

Making a recovery disc was a real pain. The fourth disc requires a 8gb disc which I had to go out and buy.

Noone talking about the screen?

 

I would have keeped it if it was not for the bad bad quality screen on it and the "cheap" feel of the plastic material it is made of. Please MSI, mount better displays.

Great machine for the price

The screen is AWFUL. I bought this laptop and had to bring it back to the shop the same week. How on earth can MSI mount that screen in a so great laptop? I will never know, probably. It has a terrible contrast: every game looks washed away, even...

Pleased

 

- Definitely worth considering. If they don't restock take a look at very similar version Pro-219 - Runs better and quieter with a cooling pad/base underneath - Could use another UHB port

- Handles what I have thrown at it so far - Built in DVD is great for a PC this size - Good looking unit - Lightweight - No problems with Windows 10

- Froze on set up... but got it working by after a while with phone help from MSI (zero wait time!) - Fans are a bit louder than I'd like - SSD drive too small for anything but the OS.

Great Gaming Laptop

 

Not sure why some others have experienced issues with Windows 10 on it. Since the day I got it, no problems with the OS at all. Even when updating the drivers. I was abit annoyed of some of the preloaded applications but it wasn't a trouble...

-Performance is fast -Can play most modern games with the highest settings -Audio quality is pretty good -Slick exterior design -Big 15.6" screen -DVD rom drive -SSD drive -GTX 970M -i7 5700HQ Overall this laptop is great. Runs many applications...

-The size. Granted it's thick because it is a gaming laptop -Touchpad, something about it doesn't feel right. I don't really like the software for it too -Preloaded with some applications you don't need Not too many cons for me.

Very impressed

 

I ordered the laptop, and it kept getting pushed back in delivery and postponed. I left an earlier review commenting this. About a month after it was finally delivered I'm writing this review and Newegg emailed me and apologized for the inconvenience...

Incredibly fast boot time Runs all games on ultra (except ARK) Amazing feeling keyboard Love all the preinstalled software like the Geforce Experience and the Dragon Gaming Center

Touchpad is a bit bad, but I use a mouse the majority of the time Almost filled up the SSD, but looking to upgrade that soon anyways. That's all, overall nothing too bad

Awesome Laptop for its price!.

 

Great specs for the price Would recommend 5/7 There's a reason why its sold out!

Loving the laptop! Really satisfied with what I bought. Its really lightweight. Which is great. I really like the LED keyboard, and the fact that it has an SSD and an HDD is really beneficial. Multiple storage and makes the laptop boot up/shut down...

Overall a quiet laptop unless you play a really graphically intense game, however, it's not hot at all!

Great Value for Price

 

Excellent product at this price range. You're not going to get a 970M for any cheaper. Great build quality.

5-6 second boot time. 16 GB RAM excellent for multitasking. Intel Turbo Boost safely overclocks CPU when needed. Backlit keyboard is nice during the dark. 970M with 3gb VRAM at this price range is unheard of, plays games at max settings at 60+ FPS. I...

Be prepared to encounter some errors upon first boot. Windows 10 is still in the working, and there will be some driver updates needed. If you get a black screen with cursor, try to reboot while pressing F8, or try the other function keys. Gets pretty...

Fantastic machine after a week of updating and fixing

 

When I first got this laptop it crashed about 30 seconds out of the box. After that it crashed every 10-15 minutes or so. I contacted MSI support and for the next 3-4 days they helped me get my laptop into working order. It ended up being a OS issues...

-970M Plays most games at Ultra with 60fps -Keyboard lights up in different colors -Quite when not gaming -Looks amazing -Not really product pro but MSI support is pretty amazing

-Windows 10 is still a little wonky -Drivers are out of date so they caused lots of issues for me in the beginning -Sligh con is the fan is pretty loud when gaming but not a big issue
