PROS: price / specs, amazing performance, styling, construction, design, blazing fast!
CONS: a little heavy but not too bad, the CD tray eject button always gets inadvertently pushed when picking the laptop up or setting it down, no biggie.
I was a huge HP laptop user for years and years and was pretty hesitant to stray away since I have never had any major issues with HP but when I saw what this thing had under the hood and the (more than affordable) price tag, I couldn't resist. There are a lot of negative reviews here that complain about shipping defects and some defective units from the factory but I understood that it happens with any PC or laptop you buy online. There are lemons for everything electronic and its just something you have to accept. The positive reviews are what you should focus on with this laptop.
I am giving Windows 10 a chance but I am so comfortable with Windows 7, I may go back to it. Now that I have a SSD, I will never go back to running an OS on a standard drive again. The reboot time is around 10 seconds and I am totally happy with the performance this laptop will deliver.
Otherwise, the laptop is great for gaming and I've had no other issues that could not be fixed pretty quickly. However I will not be buying MSi products again since the reason I bought this laptop was for gaming, and the touchpad hinders my play time. It should have been tested better and not released in this state. Very unprofessional.
I received two of these laptops, both of them were defective. I received the first laptop and booted it up immediately seeing dead pixels in the display. I was optimistic however, and i tried running a pixel fixer program for 12 hours to no avail plus i needed it for school so i kept using it for a two days. Not only was setting the product up more of a nightmare than custom building a desktop PC but more problems arose. The touch pad was complete garbage. Even while making sure only one finger was touching it, webpages would constantly zoom in and out. The cursor would constantly teleport back to its original spot when i moved it making any type of productivity on the device impossible. and the "0" on the numb-pad didn't work at all. I figured i got the on in a million faulty laptop and after the two days i was fed up with it and all the problems so I sent it in for a replacement. The next week i received the replacement only to find out that it has the same problems but worse. If the second one wasn't defective as well i could have given it up to five stars, but two faulty laptops in a row with the second being worse is where i'm calling it quits. I'll never buy another MSI product again.
There are a few buts:
1. when it first came, the sounds was weird and problematic. I could not solve it with driver updates, then I realized this "Nahimic" software that MSI promotes a lot. In theory, it enhances the sound, but in my case it was ruining it. When Nahimic was uninstalled, everything sounded normal.
2. This is a heavy and thick laptop and not easy to put in your bag and go around (if you have such a huge bag, that is).
3. Personally, my biggest letdown is the battery life. How can MSI put just a 51Wh battery on such a power-hungry system?! During normal use it goes for about 2.5hrs and less than 1hr during gaming.
4. the build quality is not as good as I expected, but it is not a dealbreaker.
5. this is my first gaming laptop and I can not believe how hot it gets during gaming. Again, I did not expect this, but it is not a dealbreaker either.
I got this during Black Friday Lightning deal and at that price ($999), it is a winner. I'm not so sure about that at normal price levels. If you want something as fast, but want better portability and battery life, MSI's GS series might be a better idea.
cons: Few overall... the fan can get kinda loud while gaming. The battery life is.. short, but that isn't particularly surprising. The ac adapter is large and barely fits in my laptop case (it's basically the only thing I can carry). The built-in speakers are also kinda weak, but I pretty much always use headphones so it isn't much of an issue. Quite honestly, these are minor gripes.
