2 out of 5 eggsNot impressed

Pros: Anti glare is nice. the suite of software that comes with all msi products is very low maintenance. havent been asked for any updates and it never pops up and annoys me, like HP products do.

Cons: Either the laptop or windows 8 sucks. it has crashed several times on me when simply opening up firefox. the hdmi port has stopped working randomly. it was always plug-n-play with no issues, no it wont work. you have to configure the video card to run with all your games individually, which is annoying. when you close it to go to sleep, it wakes up ~10 minutes later with all fans going, then goes back to sleep. on one of the usb ports, if i resume the computer from sleep, i have to replug whatever was plugged into that port to get it to be recognized again. the touchpad is way too small for windows 8. if you accidentally go too close to the edge you will end up switching screens which is very annoying. dont get this laptop.

4 out of 5 eggsRevise Review

Pros: Really is a great machine, holds way more power than a laptop normally would
the screen is NICE
the function key to turn up the fans is also really nice to have
MSI had great customer service

Cons: Pain to get working with Windows 7, but possible

there is no way this webcam is "720P"

Other Thoughts: DO NOT DELETE RECOVERY PARTITION
this voided the warranty

Ranted a few weeks ago about the driver nightmare this thing was to get Windows 7 running, but I got through it with their help and now it runs great. Would definitely recommend over the competing Lenovo Y500 and ASUS whatever

5 out of 5 eggsWow Amazing!

Pros: There is a lot of pros.
This notebook has all what an avarage notebook should have and MORE
- amazing processing power
- beautiful screen (1080p in a 15.6inch. its like retina display)
- Doesnt have unnecessary bluray reader.
- Light weight (2,4kg battery included)
- So thin
- Keyboard is flawless (just that i am slow)
- Cool design
- Sata3 (for SSDs)
- Extra msata port
- Graphic card is good. it is doing its job.
- I decided to install win7 and didnt came across with any problem.

Cons: - Fingerprint magnet (it has a glossy pianoblack body)
- Some heat Issues
- My hard disk gone dead after 4 months.
Then i bought a samsung 840 250gb ssd
and notebook started to fly.
- Well i happened to update bios firmware because i wasnt able to overclock gpu. Lastest bios is just works fine.
- There was problems with the buttons on top when it first came in. But after update of software called SCM it is just fine.
- After using win7, i decided re-installing win8. But guess what, i didnt find any kind of key for windows 8.

Other Thoughts: Well actually there is more than some to heat issue. When it uses hd4000, there is no problem. but when it starts to use 660m for gaming, it is like inferno inside it. Because the cpu that this thing has, is a very powerful one which needs to be extremely cooled on load. But only fan this laptop has is so so so small. And when gpu starts working, the cpu becomes not able to cool down by that adorable tiny fan. Then cpu reaches 80-90 degree celcius.
And you can prevent that a little bit by lowering your quality setting. Or a cooling pad. (i tries changing thermal paste, it didnt do any good)

1 out of 5 eggsDrivers dont work, regret buying

Pros: High performance graphics for a laptop, very nice screen, 4 USB ports

Cons: Everything on it fails after reverting to Windows 7, manufacturer-given drivers are mutually exclusive (you can't have the mic work while THX works, or KillerLAN working while the WiFi card does).

Nothing works at performance level after OS downgrade.

Other Thoughts: Only buy this if you plan to use Windows 8, because everything dies if you uninstall it.

The frustration this device put me through was enough to convert me to Mac.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.

1 out of 5 eggsVideo Card Refuses to Work

Pros: Looks very sleek and is sturdy.

Cons: Video card hasn't worked for a couple weeks. I didn't realize what was going on until I played a game and it said I was running Intel HD graphics. I just figured the computer was bad and decided that I wouldn't buy another MSI.

I'll call MSI tomorrow to see if they can fix this over the phone.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

All current Nvidia mobile GPU's utilize Nvidia Optimus technology. Some games may not detect the dedicated GPU due to this technology.

You can try forcing the game to use the dedicated GPU by adding it in the Nvidia control panel.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at usreview@msi.com for additional troubleshooting.

Thank you,

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It works.

Cons: Windows 8. Can't be upgraded without voiding the warranty due to a tamper proof sticker over top of a screw on the back panel stating this fact. Screen size is small @ 1920X1080. Power supply is big, bulky and heavy.

Other Thoughts: Beware of potential for Notebook getting stuck in a BIOS loop and not exiting the BIOS if firmware or BIOS updated which is needed to get wireless internet or function keys to work in anything other OS other than Windows 8.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
You can upgrade by breaking the sticker on the back and warranty will not void if the sticker is tempered, however please upgrade with caution as any damages caused to the system during the process will void your warranty.

If you have any questions, then please kindly get in touch with our tech support team directly at 626.271.1004 for assistance during regular business hours from M to F, 9am to 6pm Pacific Time.
Or you can email us at usreview@msi.com, thank you.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Great finish, great GPU, CPU, all hardware.

Cons: HDD, but if I really wanted a SSD I would have have paid a litl emore. Guess I've been to used to my old laptop in hich I changed the HDD for a SSD.

Other Thoughts: Just had a little problem with the LAN card (Killer card). It seems to reset my Verizon Router sometimes. Switched to the Wireless and it's fine, no longer occuring.

I recommend this laptop to everyone.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI GE60

Pros: -Light (Compared to GT60 - GT70)
-Durable (Even though it's made from plastic, you can appreciate the level of craftsmanship on this laptop. Does not flex or give and is very sturdy.)
-Beautiful (This laptop is just a beauty of a beast.)
-Great speakers (I read other reviews and man they ARE loud. Compared to my friends GT70 with the Dynaudio, I think these speakers are louder and clearer. Cept his has more bass because of the subwoofer.)
-Awesome screen (The matte non-glare screen is just awesome.)

Cons: -HDD (Seems that the HDD makes an audible clicking noise. Not ANNOYING in any sense, but my friend's GT70 doesn't. And the speed of it.... gonna replace with MSata SSD soon anyway.)
-No backlit keyboard. (Wish it was an option on GE series. But I knew this in the first place)

Other Thoughts: Great laptop. GTX660m is more powerful than I expected. Have been playing games like BL2, Crysis2, Shattered Horizon, and other graphic intensive games in a combination of High and Medium settings all at 1080p.
Laptop is just what I needed. A midrange but powerful machine that does not hurt the wallet much and can take me to LAN parties without having to carry my behemoth full tower. :)

3 out of 5 eggsAwesome hardware, terrible software, impossible support

Pros: I usually have a Macbook Pro laptop and a gaming desktop. I decided I wanted a gaming laptop instead for this upgrade. This hardware is nearly on par with Apple's construction - especially the keyboard (if you can do without a backlit keyboard). The speakers are surprisingly good for a laptop.

Obviously the price for the specs is fantastic.

Cons: First windows update froze at 15%, overnight. Hard reboot caused a blue screen.

WiFi card only stays connected for about 2 hours no matter what router it's connected to (tried at the airport, some coffee shops, my house and my friends house, always drops).

There are no webcam drivers installed. The MSI website has no drivers to download, it says the drivers come with Windows 8.

All these things would only be 1 egg off in my mind, but the real issue is MSI's support. For laptops you have to jump through a bunch of hoops before you can even make a request, but the hoop where I have to enter the serial number doesn't work. Calling in just lets you wait on the phone, no answer.

Other Thoughts: Awesome hardware but buggy software/drivers and no support.
