Not happy.

RaeAnn V., Newegg
2 December 2015
  • Summary: Rebate policy also sucks. Only good if you buy it at the beginning of month since it takes a while to get the product and they need information off the box. My fault for not reading the fine print properly.
  • Pros: Able to run games with adequate frames, loads relatively fast. It's a laptop. If you want something portable to play games on, sure.
  • Cons: Defective screen. Has a dead pixel. Can't get it fixed by them because it's only one. So, now I'm stuck with this defective product screen unless more pixels die.

  • Summary: The specs are good, but the laptop came late and with a hard drive failure. (hd failures are common for this model) so be wary when purchasing that it might come defective. Had to return, and won't be repurchasing it.

Cheap components

Michiko G., Newegg
5 April 2015
  • Summary: Overall, I still use it, sounds like a weed whacker, I still play CSGO and other games that aren't to graphically intensive, but if you are planning to buy this computer based on it's sheer affordability, don't let the specs fools you, they may be there, but they are cheap parts and will wear out,...
  • Pros: 1. Worked beautifully within first 3-5 months.
  • Cons: 1. Cheap components. - After the 6 months of having it, all of a sudden my laptop fan started making the sounds of a weed whacker and felt like it was just going way to fast for me just sitting at the desktop? Upon more research it is a common defect in MSI fans and replacements are NOT cheap, an...

  • Summary: Super flimsy. Decent at playing games but it's super fragile with a poor build quality. Wish I would have spent a bit more on something more robust.

Dead Pixels included (No extra charge)

Justin B., Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Summary: Not much else to say. I've owned one laptop previous to this. Still have it, and it worked for 3 years and counting. Hopefully this will stand up to my standards over the next few years.
  • Pros: Came in with a charged battery. Started up fast.Keyboard has a nice sound. Extremely fast shipping.
  • Cons: Came in with dead pixels. Doesn't ruin the screen, but looks nasty all the same. For something I paid 700$ for, I wish that this wouldn't be an issue.

Wow

Samuel H., Newegg
5 July 2013
  • Summary: I would highly suggest not getting a laptop like this. I was skeptical at the other low score, but after use, It's not that breathtaking and it is seriously impaired. My brother had the same problem apparently. The only reason I can't return this is because I failed to keep the box.
  • Pros: Faster than my old laptop. Nice feel.
  • Cons: The BD-ROM drive is faultily put together, shakes too much. When the laptop heats up, the touchpad gets hot. The graphics card died after less than 1 month. Load up is slow and laborious. The reflective surfaces don't look good with any fingerprints.

Dead Poxel

Paul G., Newegg
7 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this laptop thinking it was a great deal and on paper it is, but after receiving it the first thing I noticed was a dead pixel in the middle of the screen. Thankfully newegg made it right and gave me store credit so I could get somthing else.
  • Pros: decent specs for the price (quad core i7 is very snappy)
  • Cons: Screen Is Terrible Mine had a dead pixel

Unquestionably powerful, but ......

Paul, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: This is unquestionably a very powerful laptop for the money. It zooms through tasks that my previous machines really struggled with. The Blu-ray drive is also great and the display of HD video is tremendous.
