Good product, bad shipping

James H., Newegg
29 September 2011
  • Summary: The laptop was shipping in a box that was too big. When it was delivered, the box had been crushed by UPS (of course). When I picked up the box, the laptop inside slid around thanks to the terrible packing job.
  • Pros: Great bang for the buck, impressive amount of hardware for the price. I've been
  • Cons: Not too many thus far. Only possible negative is that the case has a cheap plastic feel, but that's nitpicking.

good all around Laptop

Todd S., Newegg
29 September 2011
  • Summary: Any Bloatware that the FX720 can live without I deleted as soon as I plugged it in and it is an all around good Laptop. Does everything well But not a master of any. If you are looking for a Laptop that will last a good deal of time but can't afford over a thousand dollars to buy then this is the...
  • Pros: Fast. has 2 2.0 and 2 3.0 USB connections. And a VGA.Bought a router and built in LAN seems like there's a cord attached. 1600x900 resolution is great clear and without fault. Can't think of very many things bad about it. Play WOW on it And I can get anywhere between 30-60 fps on medium settings....
  • Cons: Gets a bit hot of course when playing a game. Upper left hand corner.Bought a Cool Master NotePal X2 great little cooler but the FX720 overhangs the Cooler by almost an inch on each side. so it doesnt work well with this Laptop. FX720 is a 17.3 " system so. Just keep in mind the size when buying ...

Great Hardware for the Price - Better for a Techie

Isaac P., Newegg
1 September 2011
  • Summary: Don't buy this computer or any other MSI unless you know something about computers. MSI makes great hardware and components; I would not expect any customer service from them. For me, I prefer more hardware for the buck then being able to call an operator and have them talk me through re-installing...
  • Pros: Try finding this much hardware for this cheap somewhere else - you can't. When I was looking two months ago, this was the best deal out there. Based on previous reviews, I didn't bother using this laptop as is out of the box. I upgraded to a 500GB 7200RPM HD, 8 GB RAM, and replaced the wifi card ...
  • Cons: Wifi chip sucks - replace it for $10-20; I recommend the Broadcom BCM4313. Needs a format and reinstall of Windows but that is any pc you buy now-a-days. The exterior is nice and pretty scratch-proof, but annoyingly shows fingerprints. Touchpad takes a little getting used to, but has grown on me ...

Awesome Laptop

Leonid P., Newegg
31 August 2011
  • Summary: First thing I did when I got this computer was format the OEM system and install Windows 7 Ultimate. You'll need to install the modem driver from the CD, and the rest of the drivers will be installed automatically from there.
  • Pros: - Beautiful large screen - The keyboard layout is comfortable to use and gives good feedback - Speakers can get make some noise - Windows 7 runs great on this system, driver install was straight forward - All those USB drives come in handy
  • Cons: - Battery life (ranges from 2-5 hours depending on use) - The OEM installation of Windows is extremely slow - Could be a good thing or a bad thing, but only about ~590GB is usable because space is reserved for an emergency restore ( you go into the BIOS and it resets everything back to factory sp...

Disappointing

Jacob A., Newegg
17 August 2011
  • Summary: I'll be back to update how MSI has handled the customer service issue...
  • Pros: PC looks good, very light given its size, good speakers. I love the button that enables me to disable the mouse pad right on the machine. I was very excited about the overall machine. Very quiet after start up.
  • Cons: The DVD/CD Drive is extremely loose and rattles. That seems to be the least of my worries. In around 3 weeks I have had the Blue Screen of Death at least 50 times. I have uninstalled and reinstalled almost every program I've added and uninstalled and reinstalled almost every driver. I will be usi...

Rafael H., Newegg
9 June 2011
  • Summary: I needed a decent laptop for Autodesk Maya and photoshop, but I have a really low budget. this fit the build and runs both programs great for those times when I have to be away from my desktop
  • Pros: its a fast computer right out of the box after removing the bloat ware it goes even faster. the graphics are great had no issue with updates played Sc2 with ease the speakers are nice for a laptop
  • Cons: none

Solid

Alex S., Newegg
20 May 2011
  • Summary: This thing is great. Overall I definitely got what I was hoping for in this purchase. We'll see in a few months, but I suspect it will hold up well like most other MSI products (all of my prior MSI products are superb, and have held up exceptionally well).
  • Pros: - Solid performance, good specs all around make this thing perform pretty well compared even with my SLI tower PC. I'd say don't look to be too impressed, but it will handle most graphics beautifully for sure. - Fantastic screen real estate, its HUGE! Possibly a con if you're into more convenient...
  • Cons: - You'll want to do a format and fresh OS install most likely. I'm sure its possible to remove the bloatware but I honestly don't ever want to bother, simpler just to give yourself a fresh one and make it YOUR machine through and through. It doesn't seem bad though. I've seen laptops come with 10...
