Summary: I am not a power user, but also not a computer idiot either. It came with Windows 8 and I upgraded to 8pro I bought this laptop for work, and I hate it. It is not comfortable to use and it has never worked properly. There is very little online support and company support on the website practically does not exist. I have always had to insert and eject DVD's multiple times to get them recognized and now it appears it quit working altogether in just a year.
Summary: Massive disappointment. Disappointment in the equipment and disappointment in the seller. After reading all the great reviews and even speaking with friends that have MSI products I thought that this would be a great purchase as a Christmas gift. Opened Christmas morning. Less than 24 hours later it died and never came back on. It simply shut off and never powered back up.
Summary: Purchased a MSI GT70 in August of last year for my son. It is a sharp looking, fast machine. Unfortunately, that is about the only good thing that I can say about it. Almost immediately after receiving the computer, the machine would randomly crash with a Blue Screen of Death. No real pattern could be discerned. At times we can go an entire day without crashing, other times it will crash three times in one evening.
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.
