Summary: I bought this laptop in December 2013 and paid $1,500 for it. Out of the box it came with some of the keyboard lights broken. After about 8 months I started having issues with overheating while playing games. The fan started coming on full blast for a minute or so then going back to normal. It would fire up again after about 10 minutes and the cycle would repeat. 11 months after purchasing it began to completely shut down due to overheating.
Summary: MSI's inability to provide me with a laptop that works longer than several months has lead me to hate both them and this product. I purchased this laptop because of its sheer power, relatively cheap price, and cool stealth-bomber look. However, directly out-of-the-box, I experienced freezing problems with the graphics card, and the blue-ray drive was not recognized by the system.
Summary: Returned as of 2013. Computer was little slow at startup and had lots of power behind it but the unpacking it was very confusing. It looked like a toddler had wrapped it and shoved it in a box. Pros: Memory and RAM Processing Speed is extremely fast Design looks awesome Cons: Mouse pad is not centered Battery life gives you only a few hours Windows 8 is atrocious
Summary: I've choose 3 stars because the laptop has some problems at the startup and I have to restart it 3 times to start well. for be specific... when you press the button to turn it ON, the circles of Windows system not appear or doesn't move so I have to restart again. after a week, when i've turned off the bluetooth the option in windows 8.1 was deleted, so I can't use the bluetooth, and the pad is working very bad, the battery calibration never ends, and the most important...
Summary: Let me just say i looked for at least 2 months before making the decision to buy this computer. Specs , price , reviews all over the place the whole 9 and finally made my mind on the MSI Laptop. Im not in the states so i had it shipped to a friend who in turn shipped it to me pretty much in the other side of the world needless to say to return the product was never in my mind and in this case was never an option.
Summary: Arrived with the w, s, x, e, d, c, r, 3, and 4 keys not working unless you supply 10 lbs of force. Also, counted nearly a dozen dead pixels. Make sure you set up a light colored background upon setup and check for black, dead spots.
Just got and testing it, fan's noising and keyboard un-sensitive are big problems. over all, not worth this money.
