-The sound is truly wonderful. I played youtube songs on my laptop, and no matter how high, or how low I put it, it sounded crisp and clear. The DYNAUDIO works excellent. It makes you feel like you are really in a game, or if watching a movie, just sounds amazing.
-Keyboard. The keyboard is excellent. The keys are nicely spaced apart, making it simple to type. It also comes with a keypad, which is excellent since there are many laptops of this size that don't have one.
-The turbo fan works wonders. I played a game for around an hour, and unlike my old laptop that would get really hot after 20 minutes of playing, this laptop stayed cool throughout the entire hour. Although some people say the fan is loud, I could barely hear it while playing my game, and with headphones on, you won't even know it's on.
-The Cinema Pro is amazing. It makes the colors sharper, more crisp. It really makes the movies, games, pages that you are looking at pop out. It is just absolutely beautiful.
-The software on this game is great, as is the video card. I played L4D2, with all my settings maxed out. The game play was smooth, with not one hitch nor lag nor frame freeze. I loaded almost instantly into each new level, when it would take me a few minutes with my old laptop. The images are much nicer, the resolution amazing.
-The keys are marked with arrows. You can tell it's a gaming laptop by how the red arrows point forward, backward, left, and right.Read more ›
Other reviews said the keyboard was not good. Wrong. The keyboard is very nice, solid and quite.
There are two things that I don't like:
1) The keyboard is not backlit. I would greatly prefer a backlit keyboard.
2) There is no light indicating if the caps light is on.
3) There is no light indicating when the power cord is plugged in.
In summary, it could be better in some small features, but it's got it where it counts.
Can I play graphic intensive games?
So, I got this maybe 2 years ago now. At first, it was great. Playing games was amazing; this thing can play almost anything - only exception is ArmA III (*can't play it on Ultra/ even on normal settings my FPS can drastically drop). This isn't really due to any lack of power. The Laptop config traps in heat, which makes things get HOT! And lets be honest, the tiny fan included stock on this laptop just isn't enough. If you are playing a very graphically intensive game, your FPS will drop when you need it. I can not count the amount of times that I've encountered lag-like FPS. Quick Solve: Take back panel off (warning: voids warranty) and place on usb connect fan-board.
The battery, charger, charging port are utter trash!
I have had to replace my battery, my charger, and resauder my charging port within 1 year of buying this laptop. My brother also experienced this on his MSI laptop. MSI just makes poor quality batteries, chargers, and ports. The port when inspected was installed very poorly, and having to replace the battery and charger was ridiculous after less than a year and costly!!!
MSI Laptop randomly freezes then my internet goes out.
At first, I thought I had a virus or something. Nope. Checked online, and it seems other people have had this same complaint. I will be on le reddit, my mouse will freeze, and sometimes the computer will catch up and I will be able to move the mouse after 10-30 seconds. However, sometimes, I lose connection to the internet and must restart the computer. Still don't know what is causing this error.
All in all.Read more ›
