4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is a great desktop replacement if you want portability but the feel of a desktop PC. Cooling is amazing and the keyboard is even more amazing in person. Sound quality is superb. The laptop feels very sturdy. Plenty of cooling vents on the bottom and fan keeps every thing cool.

Great job MSI, I am a loyal consumer now of your products after purchasing this laptop.

Cons: Did not get an MSI Sticker with my laptop. I also think the warranty sticker on the bottom may have been broken prior to me receiving it. Other then that little thing I have no other concerns.

1 out of 5 eggsHeading towards Return & Refund

Pros: Performance

Cons: continual maintenance and updates, unreliable, spending more time restarting than using, MSI support website not helpful/outdated.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this laptop as my first fully assembled gaming laptop from a real company as I previously used recycled bits for my previous machine. Admittedly, my tech knowledge is mediocre, however, my previous machines had fewer issues. After a short 2 weeks, I updated to windows 8.1 and now it will not boot. MSI support pdfs were inaccurate, displaying options that are not available. For the short time I could use the laptop, some of the MANY pre-installed programs would work and start and their leisure. Needless to say, I have spent as much time trying to optimize the laptop as I have using the laptop. Hopefully their phone lines will be helpful otherwise I have to conclude this product ESPECIALLY for the price is just asking for more work upon yourself. Purchase only if you are employed in the computer sciences and are more than competent.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

You may have to run factory recovery to restore the system back to stock OS.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat gaming laptop

Pros: Integrated graphics until you need the 770M for longer battery life
Blu ray burner, dual mSATA RAID for a 9 sec boot to win 8.1.
1TB HD for more than enough storage on a laptop. Great no glare display.

Cons: It wasn't free.
This beast is heavy.

Other Thoughts: The Dragon Edition is a few seconds faster boot and gets a few frames per second more in games but it is also over $800.00 more for the red case, 780M, and a third mSATA.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Dev Machine

Pros: Fast, Great Graphics and Raid 0 w/SSD's make VM's run as well as most consumer PCs. Well built with lots of features that most will not appreciate.

Cons: Desktop replacement - so not for everyone or portable folks

Other Thoughts: This is a great developer machine. I can have 5-6 VM's running processes at the same time I have multiple development windows open and it doesn't even touch it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great screen so far, fantastic darks, brights and everything in between. Loving the keyboard, the backlight on it is nice.

Cons: Exepnsive(but worth it!), only other con is a lazy/dead pixel on my screen. I'm not sure if I'm willing to do something about it, I've already installed Windows 7 on the machine.

4 out of 5 eggsWow!

Pros: Nearly seamless switching between integrated and high-performance graphics, very powerful graphics processors (even the integrated runs several games), very fast quad-core Haswell i7 processor, absurdly large amount of RAM, plenty of SSD space and even more plentiful standard disk space, 4 audio I/O, BD/DVD/CD burner drive, very clear speakers, 3 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, VGA and DisplayPort ports, extra clearance for fans and airflow, 2 cooling exhaust ports, nearly silent under light load, touch panel includes a button to turn fan up to max, etc etc

Cons: Integrated webcam DOES NOT WORK for Skype without a lot of tweaking, computer will not install or boot into Ubuntu, microphone is low-quality

Other Thoughts: This laptop is quite impressive, and aside from some issues I've had with Windows 8, performs exactly as I'd like. The keyboard (which is divided into 3 separate sections for customized lighting) always grabs attention.

4 out of 5 eggsOnce more shot.

Pros: Specs as below.

Cons: Luck of the draw, Drivers need work. See below.

Other Thoughts: Games freezing
After some testing I found the 1TB hdd was the cause of the freezes. Look for a way to not have the HDD spin down / sleep to see if that helps. On the SSD they do not have this issue.

Killer Wi-Fi / BT
The Killer Wi-Fi / BT suite needs to be in place for the BT. I use a BT mouse and with out it the mouse drops out. I don’t like the suite in my start up and would prefer just the basic driver install from device manager. Less in start up the better.

Optimus and GeForce
I still would like MSI to provide an option to bypass the Intel HD4600 graphics in bios so games and other programs will see the GeForce.

Re-image
The reimage will take a few hours, the full HDD wipe will take up to 12 hours.

Fan Noise.
Expected from a laptop if your doing heavy work / games. Older games like Everquest with max settings do not tax the cpu/gpu so the fan is very quiet.

I did not have time to do more testing on the BD Rom but I would like to replace that with another HDD if I could and have the BD rom external.

1 out of 5 eggsNeeds work

Pros: Pros: Specs

Cons: Cons: Driver need work. Games freezing, blue tooth dropping out. Restore taking well over 12 hours…Bad hdd’s? BDwriter having issues with reading CD’s as well as the driver CD the laptop came with as well.

Other Thoughts: The HD4x graphic and GeForce thing needs a lot of work. We need to be provided an option to bypass the HD4x so it is not even seen.

Cant disable it as the GeForce drivers are using that and will not function with out the HD4x active.

Returning the laptop as it looks as if the hard drives, blue tooth and BD writer are bad.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
Optimus cannot be disabled, and it will continue to be the trend and niche that our products utilize with.
Hopefully, your replacement will work as it's supposed to.

If you have any questions, feel free to 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.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful so far

Pros: -Tons of storage
-Boot and program loading is exceptionally fast
-Latest generation cpu/gpu.
-Audio/amp work well with my PC350SE headset--no hissing or buzzing noises as in some notebooks.
-Auto-disables trackpad when a mouse is plugged in
-Switching between integrated/discrete graphics even when tabbing out/in of games is exceptionally fast (a couple seconds max)

Cons: -Lots of heat under load, but only a single heatsink for both cpu and gpu. The fan boost really helps but you'll likely only want to use it when wearing a headset/phones. It's quite loud. The good part is that all of this heat is directed out the back/side of the laptop and the trackpad/wrist rest stay cool.
-A modest amount of bloatware including a few norton apps that attempt to install other apps even as you uninstall them.
-Viewing angles on screen aren't great
-Glossy plastic keyboard accents attract dust & fingerprints.
-Heavy
-The keyboard has ghosting issues which will be a problem for a small number of games

Other Thoughts: It's not quite a desktop replacement in the sense that I can't play the latest games with all the settings maxed, but it's a suitable desktop alternative when traveling. I am quite pleased with it.
