Maybe mine has been an exception...?

Nancy S., Newegg
13 June 2012
  • Summary: I think that they could have placed the touch pad in a less awkward spot. I find that when I'm typing, I will inadvertently touch it, and move my cursor, causing me to type in a random spot on a page. All in all, I love this laptop.
  • Pros: I've been loving the performance of this laptop. It's quick to resume from hibernate, and the start-up time is certainly reasonable. It plays games great (Skyrim, StarcraftII, DiabloIII, and Assassins Creed Revelations) and at their highest settings. It's been a dream to work on this laptop as we...
  • Cons: I have two cons for it more or less. The keyboard isn't backlit, but to me that isn't too big a deal. It also doesn't have an indicator light for caps lock as many have written. The problem I have occasionally is that when I go to use the function button, it sometimes requires me to really hammer...

Had Been Reliable.....

William F., Newegg
25 April 2012
  • Summary: -I work in the IMO of a federal agency, the guys were impressed with the specs. I was sure that the AC Adapter issues were generally user error. At my 7 month mark I noted that I would be on battery back up suddenly. In the span of 2 weeks the AC Adapter nosedived.
  • Pros: +NVIDIA GeForce GTX560M is great for gaming. Definite improvement over the previous gaming computers I've had previously. +RAID 0 +Overall system response is fast. +Very reliable and comfortable for typing. -Mouse touchpad is NOT in the way of thumbs!
  • Cons: -Lack of backlight for keyboard -CAPS Lock light for next iteration.

Very nice

Lawrence E., Newegg
11 December 2011
  • Summary: I have been carrying an external drive to run vm's on, was very interested in this box because it has dual drives. vmware player and Oracle VirtualBox are running very smoothly in this environment. Also purchased an external USB3 enclosure, and am gettting very good performance from that.
  • Pros: Dual drives is nice, performance is very good, plenty of RAM Wasn't completely over-run with preinstalled 3rd party software
  • Cons: Based on the size of the 'lid', the actual screen could be larger, but only a minor complaint for me, had to come up with something

Great laptop

Shaun F., Newegg
7 December 2011
  • Summary: It is an amazing laptop and definitely worth the price.
  • Pros: Beautiful design, the screen could not be better. This laptop runs anything at high speeds and is loaded with features.
  • Cons: There is no function key on the right so you have to use two hands while turning down the volume with the arrow keys. No backlit keyboard.

You won't find a better machine for this price

Paula M., Newegg
6 December 2011
  • Summary: If you're on the fence about this laptop, buy it; you won't be disappointed. There's nothing cheap - or flimsy about this laptop. Treat it well and it will serve you right!
  • Pros: This laptop is a beast. It not only looks like a a beast but it performs like one. Owned since early September 2011 and it hasn't crashed once. Runs all applications ridiculously fast, startup time is less than 45 seconds - it's just great. As far as gaming benchmarks (or something of the sort) I...
  • Cons: The LEDs are ridiculous. ;) But seriously, not much in the way of cons. The keyboard setup is a little tight but still comfortable - also some of the keys are a little extra sensitive. The driver update interface through MSI is difficult to navigate.

Awesome

Michael P., Newegg
6 December 2011
  • Summary: i cant wait till i get this so i can play some awesome games at high fps with high graphics (dont expect to run it on ultra and have more than 25-30 fps in any game, because only really good gfx cards do that, like the gtx 580.)
  • Pros: I honestly cannot wait to get this laptop, i should have it by tomorrow or day after tomorrow, looks so great. Ive looked it up and it can run almost any game out there on highest, with decent fps. The graphics card is insane and the terabyte harddrive, the i7 processor, the 12GB MEMORY! beast of...
  • Cons: it doesnt do my homework for me also no backlit keyboard, but that isnt a big deal.

owned since june 2011

Joshua M., Newegg
2 December 2011
  • Summary: Hell yeah MSI. Best laptop ever. I've owned this thing for 6 months, and even today, 6 months later, you can't beat this laptop. Neweggs best rated laptop has the same processor, a video card that is like 5-6 tiers older than this one, and 6 gb LESS ram, AND costs 500 dollars more...
  • Pros: Ran Crysis 2, Fall out NV, Deus Ex, on highest possible settings. The FPS does lag though on those settings... unless you use the included one touch overclock button (wow). Then it's flawless. MSI RMA is MUCH MUCH MUCH better than any of the reviews I've read. - See cons 1. 1080p + gtx 560 1.5gb ...
  • Cons: It has been almost 6 months? Maybe 5? I have left the overclock button on while gaming for the entire time I've owned the laptop, and have played the newest games on highest settings, and it finally burned out. I did recieve like a 2 year warrenty or something, IF you remember to register the pro...
