Summary: This computer is great if you want to surf the web. However, if you want to play games on it, which is its purpose, you're in for a real surprise. It can't run new games like The Crew, and it plays old games with clipping and other graphical issues. This laptop is a joke, and my heart goes out to anyone who bought it thinking they were getting a gaming machine.
Summary: I've had two of these laptops. The first one was DOA then the second one died only after 6 months of use. Poor excuse of a gaming laptop with nothing but problems from day one. Really wanted to like it since MSI has some really well built PC components.
Graphic Related Issues, Killer Ethernet Issue, Browsing
3 January 2014
Summary: I give this laptop a rating of 1/5, because I have had a lot of BSOD errors since the first day I received it. I had graphic related issues and had to reinstall NVIDIA a couple times. First from NVIDIA’s website, but I still had driver errors, so I got it from MSI’s website after. I also had some issue with Killer Ethernet Service, which is actually a known issue with MSI Laptops. http://service.msicomputer.com/msi_user/TechFAQdetail.aspx?
Summary: First I'd like to start off by saying that this product is cheap for a reason. When you buy a cheap product, you expect things to not work but not to this degree... In the description it states that the RAM is 12 GB, which is true @1600 MHZ, which is not true, it's 800 MHZ, big difference...
Optical drive did not work and still doesn't after they "fixed it".
30 October 2013
Summary: I would never buy this laptop again or deal with MSI. I sent it back to them because the optical drive would not detect a disk and the door kept popping open. They supposedly fixed it, and it still does the same thing so back to MSI it went, I don't believe they replaced the drive at all. So we'll see what happens when I get it back the second time. It cost me $100.00 to ship it insured at UPS. Another $19 to package it. What a ripoff!
Summary: This is going back on Monday! I'm a geek, the first thing i do with a new electronic is smell the packaging while unboxing, this laptop had no new smell at all, so i got suspicious. I looked closely at the keyboard before I even plugged it in, hummm no finger oils that i could tell of, the protective cover around the board did have small debris like dust or something, i found this odd. Looking closer I found that the feet of the laptop had dust on them, thats odd.
Summary: I bought this beginning of last month. It felt amazing to open the box and see it packaged in multiple boxes, box art was nice and attractive, by the time i removed the laptop from the packaging I was anxious to powerr up the laptop. When i hooked up the cables to power computer, it would not turn on. I figured it was probably my fault for not letting it charge for an hour or so.
Summary: Went through 2 if these bad boys... And after heavy troubleshooting and wasting of my time I gave up and returned both. Each one suffered random blue screen of death issues at random times. With a pletha of different codes all pointing to different driver/ hardware compatability problems. Honestly I blame windows 8, wich is a steamy pile of crap! This machine should never have been shipped with it. It not a touch screen so windows 8 is worthless and clearly full of bugs.
