Jealous

Kim A., Newegg
16 January 2016
  • Pros: I bought this laptop for my daughter, and it's performed excellently. I'm actually jealous that this laptop is better than my desktop. She uses it for everything from school projects, robotics to gaming. Extremely happy with this purchase, and will be looking into buying myself an MSI laptop in t...

  • Summary: MSI is a solid company. I would definitely recommend one of their gaming laptops if you have the money to shell out for one. I plan to upgrade mine as well once it is fixed. *EDIT* Thank you MSI for fixing my laptop!
  • Pros: I am torn from 1 egg to 5 eggs. I have owned this laptop for a year and it has worked great up until mid February of 2015, it started to randomly shut off on me, now it won't even come on for me. MSI has accepted my RMA, so I am sending it in to them. My experience with newegg was amazing as usua...
  • Cons: The random shut off is annoying, especially now that the problem has gotten worse and the laptop won't even come on for me anymore. I have no real cons for this laptop other than it is having problems on me a year later. As long as it gets fixed, I will continue being happy with it. Otherwise, no...

Multiple Failures

Christopher J., Newegg
21 November 2015
  • Pros: Fast at everything it does at all times, never had a slowdown of any kind
  • Cons: Killer Lan causes a bunch of games to have very high latency (including Garys Mod, LoL, WoW) Within the first year my MB went bad and had to RMA it, not a big deal, but then less than six months later after I recieve it back my computer shuts down randomly again and now goes through a power cycle...

Fast, reliable, and excellent bang for the price!

  • Summary: I would definitely recommend getting an SSD with the laptop, since the standard hard drive really bottlenecks the performance potential of this beast. Personally I'd recommend the Samsung 850 PRO 1 TB. Works fine with Windows 10. Didn't even need any updates to laptop-specific software.
  • Pros: * Extremely powerful for the price. * Keyboard feels very tactile and back lights are high quality. * Disc drive for installing software and operating systems. * Tons of ports for USB, video, audio, etc. * Can easily plug in a larger monitor if you want. * When set in power saver the battery last...
  • Cons: * 60hz screen is not ideal, but understandable for price. * Gets dirty extremely easily, shows finger prints and dust. * The one I got didn't come with an SSD. Installed that later.

Love this Laptop

matthew v., Newegg
19 September 2015
  • Summary: This laptop was my first gaming pc ever. so when I got it I was just starting out in the whole computer gaming area , and a lot told me that I should've gotten a desktop its better blah blah which in most cases it is better to have a desktop for gaming than a laptop.
  • Pros: Literally everything under the hood on this laptop screams performance and power. nice keyboard and backlit to different colors. good sound good cpu temp etc, etc theres a lot more I could say but like I said at the top just about everything in this laptop rocks. BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
  • Cons: it is a bit heavy but I was aware of that getting this laptop wish it would've came with the nvidia 880m instead of the 870m(which was the best at the time). and also the ram was only 8gb however you can always upgrade it later.. short battery life but ( its a gaming laptop duh..) I literally can...

Dont Buy

Aaron D., Newegg
24 August 2015
  • Summary: If you want to play games look elsewhere
  • Pros: This Laptop has great specs, it has a good graphics card, a good cpu, plenty of ram and vram. Runs great when its cool.
  • Cons: HEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not only is it hot but it throttles its graphics after about 25 minutes of playing games. Once it hits about 92c expect significant fps losses as it tries to lower its performance and cool off. I mean like 20-30 fps loss. The single fan cooling both the cpu and gpu do not work ...

awesome gaming laptop

Joseph Learn, Amazon
19 August 2015
  • Summary: awesome gaming laptop, plays serious games with ease. it is heavy, and i had a hard time fitting it in a bag,, make sure you go with a 17.5 inch bag at least. but gamers know they aren't getting a small light weight calculator they can send out emails with. witcher 3, no problem, online MMO games?

Kaleb P., Newegg
17 August 2015
  • Pros: Very fast machine, ran well, runs VERY hot, had to buy external cooling fan and still ran very hot during regular use.
  • Cons: Ran very hot, motherboard fried on it, had to send in to MSI and took about 2 hours on the phone, waiting for it to be returned.

  • Pros: Backlit Keyboard, super fast, huge display
  • Cons: Weight
