It's a nice laptop, just not for me

Michael B., Newegg
5 December 2015
  • Summary: I think I'm going to stick with Asus ROG's now. Kind of had really high expectation from MSI product which is probably what disappointed me more. Going to return this product just because of the fan noise.
  • Pros: Very nice specs for its price.
  • Cons: Fans were kind of louder than I expected. I have an old Asus G46v which I bought around 2 years ago and that one had almost 0 fan noise. I bought that product from newegg as well and expected of similar quality from this MSI.

Probably the best budget "gaming" laptop I have owned

Anonymous, Newegg
10 September 2015
  • Summary: The plastic clips holding this thing together really aren't ideal, and make it so it doesn't travel well as it is a little bit prone to falling apart
  • Pros: Powerful (for a laptop) CPU GPU is acceptable for the price (note- The model being reveiwed is the 860M) Ram is sufficient Best laptop keyboard I have EVER used
  • Cons: The BIOS takes forever, sometimes taking 45-50 seconds, usually after an update Occasionally the Wifi adapter doesn't start with the system Build quality is a little bit on the cheap side

Second review, First DOA

Michael H., Newegg
8 February 2015
  • Summary: As a basic laptop, for web browsing, or usual work loads, it's fine. But to be advertised as a "gaming" Laptop, sorry but no.
  • Pros: OK, first one came DOA. Newegg stepped up and RMA'd it, even though I had bought the first one well in advance of Christmas as a present for someone. Second one works fine, so far.
  • Cons: Definitly is NOT a gaming laptop. It is a decent running LT, but even the most average game, ( In this case, the first tried was "Sherlock Holmes" PC game ) runs horribly slow and stutters, with all setting on low. We really didnt buy this as a gaming machine obviously by the specs, but with a de...

  • Cons: It was Mailed to me defective, Cloud of stuck pixels right in middle of the screen that looks like its raining more pixels.

Touchpad really leaves much to be desired on an otherwise beautiful machine.

LLT, Amazon
6 November 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this computer for myself for gaming, general use, and managing my small (online) business. Overall, the computer itself runs beautifully. It can easily handle the demands of my MMORPGs with a fantastic 80-90 fps and latency 120ms and under despite being on a Pacific server living on the...

Not quite for me

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 August 2014
  • Summary: I think trying to go the middle route and buying a gaming laptop is a difficult thing to do. As a student I wanted to be able to play all my games with good performance while at the same time being able to do all my work and turned to this computer to help me do the job.

a little underpowered

aredyak, Amazon
21 August 2013
  • Summary: The overall design of the computer feels a little dated and the keyboard has the off placed mini right shift key that was hard to adjust to. The GPU is what I felt was underpowered for the price since there are other models available by other companies with i7 processors and much more powerful GPUs.

Decent laptop, but the screen is a little too flimsy.

GlitchMare, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: Pros: Slim, simple, not overpriced, full sized numerical keypad. Cons: Screen is very flimsy, Keyboard scratches screen when in a case It's an OK laptop. It does what I need it to (Which is school work).
