• While the keyboard spacing is great, the keys feel a bit small for the size of the computer;
• I've been having problems while playing games. Turning G-Sync off was the solution, but then what's the point of promoting such marketing behind it?
Updated CPU to 4720
Can easily switch GPU to integrated or the GTX 980M (Integrated GPU gets you a battery life of about 4 to 5 hours)
Keyboard is easily customized for color / light display
Gaming is smooth on modern games
Cooling / Ventilation
CPU makes working so much easier as it handle all the things that I run on it
GPU upgradeable function
WIndows 10 upgrade ready (will not do it though for a few years)
Best laptop speakers I've heard in quite some time
Dyna Audio software makes music and games sound amazing
MSI Logos light up on cover
Boots up in less than ten seconds (BIOS loads up in 3.1 seconds)
Trackpad is horrible as there are no borders to let you know where it ends (gesture is off automatically so enable it for scrolling and other features)
Third party software pre-installed (easy fix; got rid of all apps and software that I will not ever use)
There is a void sticker on the bottom vent if you wanted to check out the hardware on your laptop claiming that you will void the warranty should you remove or tamper with it. This is a problem was it is on top of one of the screws. I called MSI and verified this. It is okay to mess with the sticker and it will not void your warranty if you are adding memory or RAM. However, if you remove what is already installed then you will void your warranty.
The recovery OS is on the 1 TB hard drive so make sure if you want to replace it with an SSD that you make your recovery disks first.
If you want to upgrade to a m.2 SSD I bought and installed Kingston Digital 240GB SSDNow M.2 SATA (6Gbps) Compact Form Factor SSD 3.5-Inch SM2280S3/240GB through Amazon.
If you want to grade your RAM I bought and installed Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 through Amazon.
I might have to change my reviews on this laptop. For starters, after a week's use, the laptop will boot or restart into a black screen. The last time this happened was on June 8th. I called up MSI and they think that it might because I was on battery mode trying to boot up with two USB devices plugged in (wireless keyboard / mouse combo and my external HD). The only item I have plugged in now is my wireless keyboard / mouse combo and so far today I haven't had a black screen hang. MSI also recommended that I update the BIOS and update the drivers from their website. I've contacted Amazon customer service and they have been very helpful on their part where they are willing to exchange for the same item or a different item while I keep using this one and offer to ship the exchanged item at the same shipping seed (for me it was 1 day shipping). I am hoping that I will not have to return this device due to screen problem, but I will wait a few more days to see if I have any issues and will update this post then. Hopefully, it was just needed to update the BIOS and drivers. However, I should not have any problems from the beginning like this. It is not Amazon's fault, but rather MSI.
As mentioned before, I was having a boot problem during shutdown / startup where the screen would remain black and updating the drivers / BIOS / firmware did not work whatsoever. I ended up having to return the laptop back to Amazon. The great thing about Amazon's customer service is that they shipped me a replacement on the 12th of June via next day shipping for no charge. So far, I've only experienced the hanging issue with this laptop once and I think it is because Windows Explorer decide to hang and freeze the laptop. I hope that I wont have anymore issues and if I do, I will permanently replacing this laptop and just go with the Asus ROG model which only has the 4GB version of the GTX 980M. Thank you Amazon for the customer service; you're awesome!
F3 reinstall of Windows didn't fix it.
Updated Norton and the graphics driver, that made no difference. Sometimes it dies during startup, sometimes while installing updates, sometimes while on the desktop, sometimes while using the computer. Both times I tried to watch a video, it died almost immediately. I don't see a pattern. After it dies, sometimes it won't turn on again unless I wait a long time.
I'll probably have to return it.
Oh, and the November Windows 10 won't finish installing. It just dies while restarting. Then when it turns itself on again, it reinstall the previous version of Windows. It's done that two or three times now.
I can say it will play anything you want to throw at it with ease and with superb frame rates. Stays cool, runs quiet even when fans set to boost level. Screen is crisp and the steel series keyboard is crisp to the touch. Throw a gaming mouse in your bag and you are set for anything you'd like to do with this beast.
I use it to game, to write, and to go online with. So far, it runs Skyrim perfectly. It is wicked fast and so perfect. It's the best laptop I've ever had. I recommend getting a good case to store it in, I got this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0038KTAYQ/
This is the mouse I got to go with it, it's awesome, too: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EPZI85Y/
I recommend this laptop to anyone who appreciates fine things.
I got this laptop because it was recommended by a friend who is a Physics professor and a fellow gamer, he really knows his stuff.
The keyboard is awesome, there are several color schemes you can switch between.
The display is killer, it's crisp and perfect, I've had no issues with it at all.
It came extremely well packed. This is a great company :)
