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.
Summary: We were very happy with this notebook for 2 years - but when it was 3 days out of warrentee, it died. I wouldn't recommend this unless you're will to take the chance that it will last only the warrentee time period.
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.
Summary: The video card for some reason burns out, and when I took it to the repair shop, for some reason, they said that the dedicated card was done in such a way that it could not be replaced. So now I'm stuck with this giant monster with only the backup on-board graphics working.
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.
