Potential to be fantastic computer!

Anonymous, Newegg
1 week ago
  • Pros: -Gaming Power -Cosmetically Appealing -Nice screen overall
  • Cons: -Loud at times -"Light bleeding" on edges of screen -Terrible network card and driver support. Honestly, this my biggest issue with this computer. The killer 1525 (network adapter for bluetooth, LAN, wifi) is TERRIBLE. Constantly dropping the adapter and completely missing from device manager. Of...

Love it

Troy N., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Had this a few months now and I absolutely love it. Other than the touchpad, I've had no other troubles. The graphics are great and this is by far the best laptop I've used. You will definitely like it.
  • Pros: fast, reliable, well made
  • Cons: Not big on the touch pad but I don't use it much now Needs a cooling pad because the graphics card gets very warm

Broke within 6 hours

.Robyn C., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: So please keep in mind that mine broke very soon after I turned it on the first time. I would buy a different laptop since this one seems to last only a few hours.
  • Pros: can't say anything good as it broke before I could really use it.
  • Cons: SSD broke within 6 hours. Windows wouldn't start afterwards. Sent it to newegg for a replacement. Never got one. They gave us some of our money back but not all of it.

Excellent Laptop for the Money - cannot be beat price wise!

Anonymous, Newegg
10 January 2016
  • Summary: I installed a 480Gb Adata HDD and just bought another Toshiba 128gb to Run in RAID 0 - should be smokin after that.
  • Pros: 1. Slamm'n GPU - Honestly, I would take this over a GTX 980m with 4Gb - only because in the future, video memory will be very critical in games. 2. Good CPU - and memory - and the CPU is pretty much faster than the 57xx and 67xx (those have better IGP's that's all). 3. Looks fantastic build quali...
  • Cons: Wish it came with Win 7 pro and not 8.1 - It gets hot and you need a laptop cooler - the Venting intake system was not well thought out - That's for sure - So a good laptop cooler is a must! The MSATA drive should have been bigger - 256gb would have been nice here!

Great Red Laptop

Marc W., Newegg
5 January 2016
  • Pros: Great value in a very capable laptop. Installed Windows 10 with free upgrade option. Running Autodesk Revit, Autocad, Adobe CC with no problems. Also running additional monitor with no problems. Really like the RED color as well.
  • Cons: It's a big lap top but that's what I wanted. It's only a Con if you were expecting something smaller that will easily fit into a briefcase or messenger bag

Best PC I've ever owned

Jonathan L., Newegg
24 December 2015
  • Summary: I would highly recommend to others...already have! My 1st MSI product ever too.
  • Pros: Only owned this MSI for 1 month and i LOVE it! The hardware is beautiful, I just want to touch it all day. It really is as thin as they say. The fan noise is right where I expect. Keyboard LEDs and button feel are great. Haven't had even one minor issue with this PC. WiFi is strong and as solid a...
  • Cons: Keyboard by SteelSeries is a slightly non-standard layout and takes a bit to get use to along with the placement of the mousepad in relation to the keyboard.

One of the best gaming laptop out there

Valued C., Newegg
13 December 2015
  • Summary: This laptop is really cool to bring it out. Tons of my friends and teachers said my laptop looks really cool and performance really well. This is one of my happiest purchase.
  • Pros: 1. Keyboard: The keyboard is amazing, RGB lighting looks really cool and many of my friends including me said it feels really good to type with. 2. Screen: The viewing angle is really good for a TN panel. The horizontal viewing angle is almost perfect, the vertical viewing angle is just decent. T...
  • Cons: Battery life: The battery life is pretty poor on this laptop. Only around 2 - 2.5 hours on regular browsing and watching videos. Big and heavy: You should expect this with a 17" laptop. Color: this color isn't the best in my opinion, I would much rather to get the silver or black version. Windows...

Nice gaming laptop

Sean D., Newegg
10 December 2015
  • Summary: I really like most things about this laptop and plan on kepeing it, as it is a huge upgrade over my old Toshiba, in terms of both performance and style. The sound issue, however, is a major bummer, and almost made me return it.
  • Pros: Performance: *Core i7 5700HQ is excellent *16GB DDR3 RAM *128GB SSD is a fast disk for your OS *GeForce GTX 965 is very capable for the price point, if not high-end Looks and style: *17.3" screen is bright and hi-res *All aluminum shell is GORGEOUS - Apple-level quality, or better *Keyboard backl...
  • Cons: Sound - the speakers get fairly loud and produce better sound than most laptops, but there is an issue. The choice of the subwoofer (which seems to be more of a woofer than subwoofer, with some higher frequencies) as well as its placement makes it sound as if a lot more sound comes from the right...

Good buy

Karl N., Newegg
5 December 2015
  • Summary: Overall, this delivers on what was promised for me. I'm especially pleased at the light weight compared to other gaming laptops of this size, which made it easier to choose a 17". Windows 10 (free upgrade) seems slightly buggy still but I expect to work through that soon enough.
  • Pros: Looks great Very light for a 17" gaming laptop Keyboard works well and looks nice Hardware quality is good Came with slightly faster processor (4710/2.60GHz) Obviously, runs games great Hottest zones are near the display away from hands
  • Cons: Might be true for all 17", but the numpad puts the keyboard off-center, making it a little less natural for two handed typing The speakers aren't very powerful, I think because they are centrally located to let the vents use the sides A little effort to update drivers for Windows 10

Buy at your own risk.

Milo R., Newegg
5 December 2015
  • Summary: The most important thing to take from this is that when you buy this, you're getting only a 30-day warranty from Newegg. Any defects or issues you have with this will NOT be covered by MSi because you simply cannot get a response from them.
  • Pros: Great gaming performance Beautiful aesthetic design Relatively cool temperatures under loads Ample memory for multitasking Amazingly fast boot and wake times External expansion galore (my current setup has a single 23" monitor connected, with input for two more) 4 USB 3.0 ports (mouse, keyboard, ...
  • Cons: Brushed metal. Always a con. I simply don't touch the lid of the notebook because I don't want any fingerprints on it. It was a horrible idea when it was first used, and it's a horrible idea today. It uses a slotted power input connector. This is the year 2015. We should have advanced from this t...
