1 out of 5 eggsWonderful specs, yet a HUGE disappointment

Pros: The machine performs like a champ. Solidly build, awesome, fast, plenty of memory, plenty of drive space. It should deserve 5 Eggs....., but....,

Cons: If you are a gamer, and have little use for backup via Acronis, then go for this system. But if you are a video professional, then run, far and fast. Do to a lack of Firewire this machine is completely useless for video location work and HDV tape transfers! That possibility never crossed my mind, sort of like buying a Porsche, then finding out that a gasoline tank is not part of the package.

When I talked to one of the slackers at MSI tech support, about a conversion cable, I only got to hear that MSI did NOT make any conversion cables, allowing for Firewire transfers. But he did wish me 'good luck.'

An added liability is speed of light in which some core elements boot, which made it a frustrating guess work on how to have the machine boot from a Acronis CD for safety backup purposes

Liz from NewEgg support saved the day, and took the machine back. I decided to use my two year 'old' Dell laptop on location for transfer purposes, and use the store credit to rebuild my workstati

Other Thoughts: For the lack of a $ 0.50 feature is MSI loosing out in the professional and consumer community. Poor planing at its best (worst?)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price/performance ratio

Pros: Sturdy construction, great performance (even on windows). The best cooling I've seen in a laptop.

Cons: Lousy tochpad mouse, no recovery cd. Some bloatware

Other Thoughts: If you're a power user and dont mind something a little big than this is the best deal. You can only get a lower spec laptops from dell or alienware for this price.

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect!

Pros: I am loving this laptop! Everything about this laptop is awesome.

One of my favorite features is the back-lit keyboard. I thought I'd use one color and never change it, but I end up changing it a few times a week based on my mood.

I haven't burned a Blu-ray disk yet, but it seemed plenty fast burning a few CD's and DVD's. Played a Blu-ray movie and it played flawlessly as expected.

Got pretty impressive FPS in the game demo's it came with, the Turbo Setting made a 20-30% difference at least.

The sound is pretty good, probably the best I've heard from a laptop.

I can't figure out ow to use more than 6-8GB memory... What am I supposed to do with the other 8-10GB of remaining memory? I'm a web developer and usually have a lot of programs open at once. I'm not much of a Gamer these days...

I highly recommend this laptop (or it's newer version, the GT780DXR-200US).

Cons: Doesn't have the faster 2.2Ghz 2670QM processor - but this laptop's newer version does (GT780DXR-200US). Go buy that one - same price.

There is no eject button on the blu-ray drive itself, and the eject button on the main control area doesn't work when I don't run MSI's S-Bar software. I can still eject in Windows Explorer or in WinDVD.

There are no Media buttons like play, previous, next... I knew that before buying, but have really missed them, I didn't realize how much I'd miss them.

The laptop back-light is awesome but doesn't turn OFF in sleep, it just switches to a slow wave pattern. I leave the back-light on whenever I use the laptop, but I can't figure out how to turn it off in sleep.

Has the same brightness range as most all laptops, I wish screen could get even darker, as I use it in front of my TV in a dark room all the time, and the laptop is brighter than my tv at the laptops lowest brightness. Why don't they let us turn it even darker, like my mobile phone ge

Other Thoughts: I am annoyed at Newegg... When I found this laptop (GT780DXR-099US) here on newegg, I thought it was perfect but was sad it didn't have the 2.2Ghz 2670QM processor like MSI's newer version of this same laptop, the GT780DXR-200US. It's exactly the same laptop, but the only difference that I know of is the upgraded processor. Newegg didn't have the 200US at all, and I waited for a few days watching for it. I did one last check for the newer one before buying the 099US, and still wasn't on the site. I purchased the laptop and like 30 minutes later I get an email that the laptop was shipped (sweet!). As soon as I got that email I searched again for the 200US, and low-and-behold, they have it in stock... I literally think Newegg was waiting to sell one more of the 099US before putting the newer one online. They probably had the 200US in stock for a while...

If you are in the market for a new laptop, I would imagine the GT780DXR-200US would be the one to buy in this price range.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat system, minor software gripe

Pros: Screen quality is excellent. Bright colors, good contrast, very sharp, and no dead pixels. Performance is what you would expect from such a system, it feels as lightning fast as it should. Relatively clean install with very little bloatware.

Cons: Pop-up installer at the beginning did not allow me to de-select some of the applications, and I had to manually remove them (along with a few other unnecessary apps) after it booted to the desktop. One or two of the utility apps (like the recovery burn software) hung at start-up or otherwise did not work as expected. The KLM utility is not on the CD and I could not find it on MSI's site-- I located it via a Google search.

Other Thoughts: The cons are minor. I was considering docking an egg for them, but they aren't significant enough to warrant that. If I could, I'd have given it a 4.75 out of 5.00. Still, these are issues that potential buyers will want to be aware of, though they should not stop you from buying this notebook. Also, it's a pretty hefty notebook, though I do not list that as a con because I expected it to be heavy.

5 out of 5 eggsRE: DOA

Pros: Works this time! So far so good. Computer runs well and some of the added software is ok. Uninsalled a bunch of bloatware.

Very sturdy design and the performance is great.

Cons: Bloatware is annoying, but easy enough to get rid of.

Would be nice if you could e-mail the required documents for the registration with MSI versus mail them in.

Other Thoughts: Newegg performed the RMA. It was very easy, and I appreciate the excellent customer service.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: It looks very clean and sturdy. The notebook seems well built on the outside.

Cons: DOA

Went to boot it for the first time and one of the two hard drives is not being recognized in the BIOS. Since it is a Raid-0 set-up the computer cannot boot.

Other Thoughts: Have not registered the notebook with MSI yet. Hoping to work a swap with Newegg. So far no reply back on my customer service request.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued MSI Customer,

We would like to apologize for the issue you have experienced with this particular notebook. Please email me directly via your notebook's serial number and your complete contact information, subject heading "EAHGT780DXR-099US". I would like to help you get this resolved.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't think act!

Pros: Hands down the best Gaming Laptop I have ever owned.

Plays Crysis 2.

With all settings at max, with the Hi-def pack and DX11 packs.

I didn't know that games could look this good.

Cons: I don't have 2 of these.

Other Thoughts: left shift hurts my pinky, takes too hard of a press to get it down.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: The computer is fast, good looking, and has minimal "peinstalled programs". Definately worth the money in my opinion.

Cons: The light up keyboard is in three sections, I remember reading something about 103 keys are programable so i was thinking each key could be different color. This was not the case but still awesome looking none the less. Secondly, it should have come pre-installed with intel's turbo boost for the processor. Not really a hugh deal but it wuld have been nice.

Other Thoughts: Overall, i will extremly enjoy this laptop and if the quality remains the same in the future, I will purchase more of these products.
