5 out of 5 eggsMy expirience

Pros: Good price at time
gtx570m
Fast
Plays most game at decent settings
Love the screen
Love the Keyboard

Cons: hinge broke once, and i baby the laptop

Other Thoughts: purchased in 9/12 for 899$. I was alternating between this laptop and my desktop. Its the answer to the performance and portability that i needed. Gfx card performed like my stock gtx 260 of old with the exception of it being on a lappy. I did need to mess with the settings as for the first year i owned it, i could not figure out how the msi overclock tool worked. Didn't care enough to figure it out till later. played movies great. would have loved a second hd bay. webcam @ 720p is nice.

Its plastic hinge broke a few months in, and i left it in my laptop bag for months after. i baby my computers, but this thing broke from me closing it... Although, Fastest rma and return i ever experienced. shipped and received withing 1 week LOL.

My first msi experience was horrible, but after i gave them a second chance, Ive decided im sticking with them. Ive built 5 machines with them and this was my first pre-made, and i am quite satisfied. checked a few reviews. Ive had no problems with the screen, sound( then again i use a high end headset), bluescreens or crashes. its worked as it should and if i do get another lappy, id like it to be like this one.

2 out of 5 eggsDissapointed

Pros: As stated in my previous reviews. Great, when it works.

Cons: I have now owned this laptop for 25 months. I have sent it in for RMA twice. First time something inside the laptop fried and it would no longer turn on. The second time the video card and hard drive had to be replaced. I was about to send it in a third time, which would be exactly 4 months now since the last RMA however, my warranty is finally expired. Since getting it back from the last RMA, 2 weeks after I got it back I would get random screen freezes. Sometimes it would un-freeze other times I would have to power it off then back on. Games consistently crashed and overall the unit was noticeably slower. Pages loaded slower, programs and games took longer to load, and games now needed to be set to lower resolution which is odd because the replacement gpu was an upgrade. Now, I still have the random crashes and freezes and also when restarting the unit, instead of loading windows I'm met with a command prompt that you can't even type in. Instead I must go to the boot menu and select my hard drive. I have done a system restore twice. No luck. Overall I am very dissatisfied with my experience and for the fourteen hundred I payed I could have built a better desktop. I can't say I will be going with MSI again after this. It would take a big step on their part to regain my trust. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

Other Thoughts: Although my experience with this product has been one I would soon like to forget I would like to say that their customer service is top notch. They are prompt, friendly, and courteous. I hope these reviews help someone.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Great price for the specs
- Renders video like a boss.
- 2 year manufacturer warranty
- Darned decent graphics card for a laptop

Cons: I waited a good while to write this review, knowing that too many issues crop up after the first year of ownership. So far, I've sent the laptop back to MSI four times in the 16 months or so that I've owned it. Twice because the monitor stopped working out of the blue. Once because the power port stopped getting charge into the battery. The other time I can't remember at the moment...

So there's all that. Additional qualms:
- Weird layout of the keyboard. Takes some adjustment to find the ctrl button the left side consistently.
- super loud fan
- LCD screen is a piece of trash. Deep shadows are rendered sort of like interlaced lines. Makes it very difficult to do much with dark footage, watch dark movies, play dark games, etc.
- Plastics aren't great. Not very durable.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, I'm really, really nervous to keep owning this past the warranty period. I just know that something else is going to go drastically wrong. I'd rate this a three if it was based on daily use, but the fact that things just keep going wrong does not instill confidence for the longevity of the laptop. I'll probably try to sell it before the warranty is up and buy a different manufacturer...

2 out of 5 eggsDied within 6 months of last RMA

Pros: As stated in my previous review. Great, when it works.

Cons: Far to many issues with heat. I do not use the overclock button. Last issue, something overheated and fried, believe to have had something to do with the power supply. Now, computer keeps restarting randomly, usually while playing World of Warcraft. Reinstalled Windows via the on board restore option thinking it was a Windows issue. Worked for almost 2 hours, played WoW, poof! Restarted on its own again. I have a HUGE laptop fan under this thing and even run the built in fan. Tried a power supply purchased from Newegg thinking the original power brick may be the issue, nope same thing. Also does it on battery. I really loved this laptop but after having it for a little over a year and having it mess up on me twice? I have always been an MSI customer but after this, I am beginning to rethink my loyalty.

Other Thoughts: Help me MSI....your my only hope.

2 out of 5 eggsdon't trust MSI

Pros: computer is ok when it works

Cons: msi support is absolutely horrible. Laptop overheated within 6 months dropping fps in games so i had to get a laptop fan. Within 9 months the laptop starts to freeze and need to be manually rebooted. After i shipped it to msi the laptop got damaged and MSI customer service was rude and would never call back. Never buy from this company if you value your money, i lost 1000 dollars don't lose yours

4 out of 5 eggsSolid laptop, few issues though

Pros: LCD is perfect, keyboard and touchpad are perfect. Bright vibrant image. Fast big laptop. It's more of a conveniently portable computer than a laptop though. It has a graphics-boost button which I still haven't had the need for! Runs Tomb Raider 2013, Sleeping Dogs, Sim City 2013, Minecraft, all perfectly. Can't wait to play Bioshock Infinite on this.

Cons: 1. Getting the audio drivers tweaked to work properly is impossible, and I still haven't figured it out and am left with a barely noticeable tinny sound when the volume peaks on movies, this happens with both the laptop speakers AND my HDMI TV speakers
2. Battery life is 2 hours or less in my experience and the indicator on the screen far overestimates time left.
3. The S-Bar "star" can never be hidden from the desktop, this is just plain stupid. I never use the S-Bar features which makes it worse.
4. Good luck finding a bag for this lappy, it doesn't fit all the bags designed for its screen size.
5. When the fan gets going while in a game, it's very loud and kicks out quite a bit of heat, that's kinda good though if the heat's getting vented.
6. You have to mess with drivers to get BlueTooth to work properly.
7. The camera and included software leave much to be desired, you won't get much use out of it without finding the right software I guess.

Other Thoughts: I clean the surfaces regularly with soft cloth wipes like for phones. Because of that, the laptop still looks brand new after months of use. Only insignificant gripe there is how particles get trapped in the seams. With the right configurations for Shutdown preferences, I simply close the lid when I get up and the laptop shuts down after a little while on its own. I paired this with a Performance MX Logitech mouse and it feels like working on a normal desktop computer since the keyboard is spacious. I would like to automatically disable the touchpad on startup, haven't figured that out yet. Buy this laptop if you think you can get it for a reasonable price!

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing Laptop

Pros: Amazingly fast, has a great gaming grade build and specs. I didn't have to spend much time tweaking it and yet the best thing is the single touch overclocking.

Cons: Very large and very heavy, the power supply alone is huge so it makes it a little akward to carry around in normal laptop bags.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: very Fast
Runs almost all games with more than acceptable settings and framerates
Runs pretty cool for how powerful it is

Cons: Large so not super protable

Other Thoughts: It was an excellent value. I got it end of life when it was discontinued and got a great deal on Newegg. I use this laptop everyday. and while it does not completely replace my desktop for gaming, it does an excellent job.

3 out of 5 eggsFried in 11 months

Pros: Overall this was a good laptop. I purchased it to replace the desktop I had built 3 years ago. It played all my games on max settings, WoW, Diablo 3, STO, Black Ops. Good frames per second. Screen is large and looks great. The overclock feature is nice also. Onboard sound is excellent for a laptop.

Cons: Constantly over heats while playing games and shuts off. Keys on the keyboard feel cheap and have even poped off. Constantly have to update the drivers for the onboard wi fi because for some reason it keeps droping the drivers and does not recognize the wifi.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this thing for over 1400 back in February of 2012. Today when I went to turn it on I heard a pop, smelled burning plastic and electronics. The laptop turns on but when I plug in the charger it will not charge. To make matters worse I forgot to register the product and now seem to be out of luck. Overall I would say this was a decent purchase. Would be nice if it did not have the heating issues and I even used a laptop cooler while playing but it still over heated and shut off constantly. Now, its just a 1400 dollar paperweight. Maybe someone else will have better luck than I did but if your going to spend that much money better be sure you register your product.
