1 out of 5 eggsA nightmare

Pros: Nice graphics card.

Cons: It looked very appealing for the price just reading the specs. But it has been a disappointment. Let me start with the bottom line - I don't play games with this gaming computer. In fact, I don't too many important things with this computer because it is unreliable. Constantly freeze. Keyboard constantly stuck. CD reader can't read. The touch control has only 2 buttons that work. Hardware aren't fully compatible with windows 8, still. Mouse pad is freeze while loading a website; Raid setup regularly freezes, so your updates takes much longer (a single SSDIII is faster from my performance tests). On board wireless doesn't work sometimes. After a long session of gaming or typing a report, keyboard starts randomly start escaping out of the current window. Sometimes it takes 10 minutes to log on from sleep mode. This is all happening even after the first RMA. They didn't fix anything.

Other Thoughts: If you forget about the potential the specs suggest, you'll be left with a functionality of a 600 dollar laptop. That that won't give you as much trouble with software as this one. It has been a complete waste of time.
I did the math, if you make 10 bucks an hour X 100+ hours troubleshooting this computer = 1000 dollar. Most people make a lot more so just be careful.
On a personal note, I'd rather buy a $6k computer than this $2k computer (price I payed at the time)

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent choice.

Pros: Well built and very good specs on this laptop. Nice design and build quality. Gets 7.0 Windows experience by using the dedicated Nvidia 675 graphics card. Overall, a very good machine. Backlit keyboard. About the same weight as my 4.5 year old Toshiba with 16" monitor. Battery shows about 2.5 hours of life; have not tested that time though. Very cool running machine.

Cons: Price but you get what you pay for. Would be nice to have the wireless card run on the 5 GHZ band, as I could take advantage of the extra powerful ASUS router that has 5G Wi-Fi. Keyboard key size will take getting used to for big fingered persons like me. I am still getting used to it so a grain of salt here.

Other Thoughts: If you can afford it, you cannot go wrong with this pc. Whether a gamer or just needing/wanting a high spec laptop, this is it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome Just Awsome

Pros: This laptop is so awesome. I helped my dad get a new laptop and helped him decided on something worth the investment. This baby will do it all. I just got around to playing Defiance on it last night and wow it just screams with power. And the all pretty led lights and non glare screen make it even better to play in the dark. Make sure to turn on the extra fan blowers and then swipe your finger across that turbo turn on. This thing is sweet.

MSI you have been making good stuff for years, keep it up.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Its a chunk a money to spend. But well worth it.

2 out of 5 eggsVery Saddened

Pros: Definitely a powerhouse, but far less than what is expected.

Cons: GPU is advertised as 4Gb, but is actually just a 2Gb like the lesser model. When I finally received it, it was only reading 8Gb RAM, after inspection it turns out that the RAM sticks were chipped. SSD and such are nice, but make for a high price with minimal usage, and it took newegg 3 weeks to process this, and then another 9 days to ship it. I was charged after the 5th day after ordering, but still had to wait and wait.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it was a piece of junk. Returning it and ordering a better one for less on another retail site. I have always loved Newegg, but this order has killed it for me. Never again...

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Bought this to replace an older gaming laptop and so far performance seems very good. I've been able to run every game I've tried on the highest settings. Keyboard feels comfortable to type on. The display quality also seems very good.

Cons: Received the laptop tonight and powered it on. Went through the windows 8 first startup wizard. Afterwards the account wouldn't log in. Kept getting a corrupt profile message saying: "user account service failed the logon". I had to create a Windows 8 recovery cd on another computer, and enable the administrator account. I then tried creating a new user account. It also couldn't log in. Found bad file permissions in the default profile that prevented all new user account from logging in. It's ridiculous that a laptop with this price has such a basic windows issue.

Other Thoughts: The Windows key is on the right side of the space bar which is throwing me off. I rely on it a lot on Windows 8 for shortcuts. I expect I'll get used to it in time.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

5 out of 5 eggsWow...

Pros: You can change the backlit keyboard's color & even make it pulse or wave aswell as it's keys feel larger than average(good for us big finger people). It has a dizzyingly large, bright & fast responsive screen. Starts up in just a few seconds & shutsdown just as quick. Turbo & forced cooling buttons at top of keyboard are a touchpad like setup, just a light touch & they activate. Looks like it's ready to kill something, in a cool way though!

Cons: Feels just a little overall. Not sure if it's just me being used to slow pc framerates but the framerate in most games on this laptop just makes me a little dizzy(find I do find it a little fun though) It looks overall intimidating, waiting for it to bite me or something!

Other Thoughts: Coming from a "littler" laptop that was bought in 2003, this is a great thing to behold,

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing...

Pros: Runs anything you want on ULTRA settings, boots in 2 seconds, and compiles C++ programs in less than one second.

Cons: This is everything you always dreamed about...
BUY IT! You will not be disappointed....and it runs cool!!!!!!!

Other Thoughts: I am still trying to make this wireless device find my 5Ghz wireless connection, but the computer is awesome! Thank you Newegg. BUY IT GUY! It is faster than my desktop with two Ge Force 580 GTX in sli... This laptop will get higher FPS than my super machine Desktop... Howver I have an AMD 3.8Ghz Phenom II 6 cores there, and here I have this amazing i7 that makes all the difference....

5 out of 5 eggsI love it

Pros: Does everything I want it to. I bought this more because I do a lot of work with virtual machines and currently do not have room for my desktop. This replaces it completely and gives me a really good excuse to try gaming again too. I over spec any laptop I buy expecting it to last me 4-6 years. I doubt this will let me down.

Cons: The weight. This thing is heavy but I expected that. A backpack is a must for this if you plan to carry it often.

Other Thoughts: I wish it came with the option of Windows 7 but I have made 8 work for me. Got to change with the times.
