Customer Service

Stanley B., Newegg
26 January 2015
  • Summary: It was also suggested to me by tech support that I try another operating system instead of windows, told him if I wanted that I would have bought a laptop with that in it already.
  • Pros: This is an awesomely fast laptop with a good look about it. The lighted keyboard is great and the weight isn't too bad.
  • Cons: The customer service sucks, I tried calling the company to get my win8 product key which they inconveniently put in the bios. Win 8.1 will not accept it that way they want the win key, MSI tech support tells me they don't have it and that I should try to get a win 8 disk from a friend or somethin...

Excellent, but Flawed

James R., Newegg
2 October 2014
  • Summary: I really do love this laptop, but the crack has upset me greatly. There's no reason for it to crack in this fashion, and I wish this laptop had been more durable.
  • Pros: It is a very powerful laptop, able to run any crytek engine game at full resolution, as long as it is plugged into the power supply. At first, I didn't understand the switchable graphics, but once I figured out how to make sure the computer turned on the AMD graphics card for video games, I was o...
  • Cons: Durability and battery life are major problems. Two out of the three USB 2.0 ports will randomly stop working. The frame has cracked near the hinge on the screen side of the laptop. This crack has been caused just by moving around this laptop with the screen open. As in, you are sitting on the co...

The thing to note was the inclusion of a driver DVD that made me very happy. It includes just the basics

  • Summary: MSI G70-3CC destroyer Review & tweaking guide Not a huge fan of unboxing reviews so I did take a few photos to show off, but nothing major. The thing to note was the inclusion of a driver DVD that made me very happy. It includes just the basics, chip set and wifi and nic.

Excellent laptop PC

Robert Beard, Amazon
20 September 2014
  • Summary: Excellent laptop PC and quick delivery by Computer Upgrade King. The backlit keyboard looks cool. The AMD quad-core processor is powerful. My only partially negative observation is the touchpad being a little inconsistent; but that is true of virtually all touchpads when compared to a mouse.

  • Summary: My son ordered this computer for gaming. I waited awhile before reviewing, he could not be happier. The screen is awesome, the fans in the computer are great and keep the device from over heating during long hours of use. Lots of memory and so much more!!!!

MX-70 DOA

Jimmy J., Newegg
8 August 2014
  • Summary: -NewEgg would have accepted it back, of course but they do not replace OpenBox buys with an identical item and that's stated before you purchase. It was return it with postage paid to NewEgg (or Egg Head if you're old) or return it to MSI with your own postage to repair it and use it.
  • Pros: -New Egg shipped this fast from City of Industry, CA to the east coast and it arrived 1 day early. -MSI gave me an RMA to return the unit. -MSI claims that the warranty doesn't expire when you remove the "Warrenty Void if removed sticker" on the bottom of the case. In order to change/upgrade your...
  • Cons: -The LCD screen's backlight was INOP. No flash at startup, no flicker of light at any point during startup or on the BIOS screen, no response from brightness. I could still barely see the image on the screen if I shined a light just right on the nice anti-glare screen, so it's just the back light...

poor laptop

kristopher larson, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: The laptop's warranty sticker on the underside of the laptop was tampered with and the panel the sticker was overlapped on, looked like it could have been removed. Plus a major program file for the device had been removed, to prevent it from having the standard factory reset preformed.
