Summary: Disappointed. On paper this is a great gaming laptop with consistently good reviews. I'm not sure if I got a "lemon"... Pros: Graphics are fantastic. Sound is great. I love the customizable backlit keyboard. Cons: Overheating, overheating, overheating.
Summary: I don't write many reviews and when I do it's usually quite a while after I purchase the product just to make sure that , #1 it works as it should and #2 the support offered is up to standard. I'm sorry to say that MSI fails, at least in these two categories.
Pros: It will play music and you can watch DvD's and browse the web. It feels pretty sturdy.
Cons: I've been using computers since Half Life was released back in 1997 and I like to think that I'm pretty darn knowledgeable when it comes to navigating web sites, but it took me several hours to realize that MSI did not have any links to any of the software for my laptop on their web site. I had t...
Summary: Ultimately, I would not purchase this computer. It has been spotty with the performance and I regret buying it.
Pros: Low Glare Light-weight
Cons: I am not impressed with this laptop for several reasons. Whether it is my computer or Windows 8, it has consistently crashed programs, ran games in incorrect resolution, and shown frequent fps drops in games. This laptop has also had 'hard drive failure' twice in less than a year, resulting in lo...
Summary: Right when received this computer the metal feel was really nice and the keyboard extremely comfortable and quiet. The problem was with the screen and the touchpad. Since minute one the screen started colors to a darker tone then turning back to the expected tones, and the screen started blinking...
Summary: It isn't advertzed as so, but its 32 bit. Also, the webcam isn't picked up by Amy program on the laptop (such as Skype), even after updating drivers. Its as if they installed a camera for show. Quite slow to load things.
Summary: Im a college student who is going through finals and essays right now. this laptop caused me so much unnecessarily stress.
Pros: The specs the keyboard lights up looks cool
Cons: first excuse the typo, i am writing this in a hurry the first day i got it, it already had a blue screen. saying windows ran in to a problem and had to restart. Throughout the week this happened more i also hate windows 8. when i first got it , it was so confusing because i my previous one was a ...
Summary: It didn't come with a serial number, so there is no way to register the PC with MSI for any service or support. you are dead in the water on your own. I updated from windows 8 to 8.1, and now the video card doesn't work and the thing is sluggish
Great at First, but then Overwhelmingly Disappointing as the Days Went By (One Month Update)
3 April 2014
Summary: ONE MONTH UPDATE (MAY 12, 2014--SCROLL DOWN FOR OLD REVIEW) I ordered this product over a month ago, and I decided to return the laptop. I really enjoyed it at first. I loved the aesthetics of the laptop, the feel of the keyboard, the beautiful display, and the great speaker quality.
It's a fast computer but I hope you like the Blue Screen of Death

Summary: I bought this a few months ago. Right out of the box it bluescreened but I blamed it on Windows 8. I was going to swap out the hard drive for my SSD and install Windows 7 on it immediately so I didn't think much of it. Stupidly, doing so voided my warranty and didn't fix the blue screen issue.
