5 out of 5 eggsA good laptop for the price

Pros: - Price
- BD burner

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Some people think that Win 8/8.1 is the MSI fault, which is unfair. Invest 100 bucks and you get Win7. I recommend you buy a cheap encore to use that HDD, and buy a good 512GB SSD (e.g. Samsung 840 EVO is $340 at Newegg). Also buy a good cooler (they are cheap), though MSI cooler system is not bad. Its GPU is nice, 3GB is enough to running all the VG at a reasonable FPS. I think this laptop is the best (at this moment) option MSI is offering.
PS. I own a MSI GT780DXR, a very good laptop, and I bought at Newegg. You don't invent!

5 out of 5 eggsMSI GT Series GT70 2OC-059US

Pros: The only reason anyone would make such a purchase is for the hardware...
Screen Size: 17.3 inches
Screen Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Max Screen Resolution: 1920 x 1080 pixels
Processor: 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7-4700MQ
RAM: 16 GB DDR3
Memory Speed: 1600 MHz
Hard Drive: 750 GB SATA
Graphics Coprocessor: NVIDIA Geforce GTX770M
Graphics Card Ram Size: 3000 MB
Wireless Type: 802.11bgn
Number of USB 2.0 Ports: 2
Number of USB 3.0 Ports: 3

Cons: Windows 8 (8.1) is a BIG con of course; no argument there. MSI along with their OEM partners engineer the system and provided a great H/W platform. Personally I never even booted the laptop. Before purchase I contacted MSI directly and asked if the system was Windows 7 (64bit) supported and Voilà! Indeed MSI said this system is supported for Windows 7 (64bit). I removed the 750 GB SATA and replaced it with a bare 1TB SATA. DID NOT RELOAD WINDOWS 8. I loaded Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit) and it screams as expected. What did I do with the 750 GB SATA? Second bay of course and makes a great backup.

Other Thoughts: Do your own research!! Know your limitations and do not purchase if you yourself are not a serious HW/SW savant.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty awesome, but a bit pricey

Pros: -Great for gaming. Can run BF4 on Ultra and it's still pretty smooth FPS.
-Not as heavy as I expected it to be
-Lots of cool gaming options, like running the fan ultra high to cool off the computer for a few minutes, then you can turn the fan back down to normal.
-The physical computer is very nice, the LED keyboard and the screen and just how it looks in general. It's sleek.
-Great resolution on the screen, and it's nice and large but not too big.
-Bought from Newegg! I love newegg. I paid for 3-day shipping and it arrived in 36 hours. amazing. And it was packed very well.

Cons: -WINDOWS 8 / 8.1. Terrible, just terrible. Honestly before I got Windows 8, I was like "psh, these people are just complaining it can't be that bad." Boy was I wrong. Windows 8 is seriously atrocious. The user interface is horrible, you have the same Windows 7 Desktop, but then you have the Icon menu/desktop that's basically like a smart phone. Why do you need both? And it has the stupid app store like a smart phone. I want a personal computer, not a tablet or smartphone. Seriously. Plus you get stuck with "apps" instead of software. For example, if you want to download Skype, you have to get the app, because there is no independent software, and it's a horrible app. Also, windows 8 has no built in media player? What? This laptop comes with a blu-ray drive, and I can't even play blu ray movies on it without buying software. So stupid.

-Besides Windows 8, it's a bit pricey. Not sure if it's necessarily worth $1600

-Even though it can run BF4 on Ultra, some games it can't. I was kind of expecting that I could max out some of this year's games, considering this is a rather high end laptop (Of course, it's not a desktop PC, but still). I can only run Tomb Raider (2013) on Medium-High. On Ultra it gets like 15 fps, which is rather disappointing.

-It has a few bugs, like notifying me that there is an error on one of the drives, though I've run disc checks and scanned for errors and everything is working correctly. I looked up the issue online and it may be a bug with Windows 8, but still. It's a brand new computer and I wasn't expecting it to have bugs like that. It's also frozen a couple of times, and I've only had it for a month. Potentially something to worry about? Not sure.

Other Thoughts: Overall, pretty satisfied with this purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: Solid processors, design, video cards, 16GB ram.

Cons: *** Comes with Window 8 and it's totally messed up after installed Window 8.1. I honestly regretted buying this Laptop because of Window 8 and then installed 8.1. I cannot even go back to window 8 and it didn't come with a WIndow 8 reformat disk. It takes 20 min to start up the computer and more than 20 min to turn off the computer. The sleep/hibernate mode disappeared after window 8.1 download. I've follow all the "How-to-fix-it" instructions and there is NO resolution whatsoever.

I am sick of MSI blaming the problem on Window 8.1 and Window blames the problem on MSI.

I've download the latest Video card driver and my video game laggs like there is no tomorrow when I am play Left 4 Dead 2 this is a total joke.

I've uninstalled ALL software/apps/games that didn't come with the laptop and the startup and boot time still takes 15 to 20+ min to get going.

If you select sleep mod if there is no actives within a particular time frame (no activities within 10 MIn) the my MSI will never wake up and I have to then hold the power bottom down for a few seconds and do a force restarts then the error message pops up and asked you if you want to report it to Window...

I've downloaded all the registry software and hope that they will fix the problem but NO... I get more stuff done with my Galaxy S4 than my GT70 I am not even kidding.

Try to get support from MSI is pain in the (X) ... for my experience at least.... my problem is still here what does that tell you?

I would break that egg if I could.

5 out of 5 eggsCouldnt Ask for more!

Pros: i7 4700
16 gb RAM
GTX 770 3gb DDR
17.3 true 1080p HD screen
Steel Series Keyboard
Cooling fan
Back lit keys
Good sound
USB 3.0
HDMI out
BD burner

This machine can do just about anything at Ultra settings with no problem at all, the keyboard is comfortable and feels like it is built well!
Case is the brushed aluminum and plastic and this machine feels as tho its quality built with the consumer in mind. 750gb HDD makes it east to put all my favorite games and apps on with no worries that it will fill up.

Windows 8 64bit actually works great and I've not had any problems with it at work or home, it dose everything I need it to do!

I would absolutely recommend and have such recommended this machine to friends and coworkers!

Cons: Nothing that I would consider a con

Other Thoughts: Slow start up at first with Windows 8 settings
Updates!
Battery life ( but with this power id expect nothing less)

If you enjoy high end PC gaming you would be a fool not to give this machine its due!

Its heavy but its packed with power so I dont mind a little extra weight

The battery charger is HUGE but its not a con in my opinion just be sure you have a laptop storage bag that is capable of handling the extra size of the batter charger and thickness of the Laptop its self.

Id buy it again in with no doubts

100% enjoyment

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Runs everything very well
Turbo fan settings keeps gpu from overheating
Great features and a comfortable keyboard
Comes loaded with all the great msi bells and whistles
much more affordable when compared to same specs in an alienware

Cons: only con i had with the computer was the reboot time when i first got it. It would stay stuck at configuring windows updates. It was easily fixed and not worth a loss of an egg

Other Thoughts: Great buy if you are looking for a gaming laptop that can run anything you throw at it and don't want to jump at the alienware name this one is for you

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for portable gaming

Pros: I wanted to game when not at home and this laptop fits what I need

I'm surpised with the windows 8 start up time despite using a mechanical hard drive.

I've enjoyed the gaming experience with this hardware, it will not get the same video quality of my gtx 670 rig or my friend gtx 770 pc, but balance of image quality and frame rate is doesn't take away from my gaming experence.

The screen is big enough it doesn't take away from the experence, my previous 15 inch laptop wasn't big enough.

Cons: There is a button above the keyboard that boosts the cooling power of the laptop, when the button is off it's quiet, but when it's on the noise is terribly annoying. I only use it when i'm using headset while gaming, otherwise it distruptes my gaming.

When entering numbers on the number's pad I end up hitting the right arrow key that cuts into the number pad. If I had a choice I would get rid of the direction buttons.

Make sure that your backpack will fit the laptop. I bought a swissgear backpack for 17" laptops, the 0.3 inches make a bit difference since i can't fit the laptop in the slot for a laptop.

Navigating windows 8 is a learning experence. I miss my start button i've been used to all my life. I have gotten use to the new interface but I enjoy the accesability of the start provides, I feel like it can't get into my pc without it. I have to learn the many different paths to what i want, like windows updates, and seeing how much space my hard drive has, or the size of install files. I would much rather have windows 7 then 8 with windows it's current version only because I don't want to work to get to what I want quickly

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Quality feel, responsive keyboard, backlit keyboard, fast, excellent graphics, quiet

Cons: Windows 8 (not an MSI issue). Problems updating Nvida graphics driver, Nvida console and driver website recognize GPU, recommend update, but Install says failed due to no compatible H/W. Older games may not run. Sims 3 will not run.

Other Thoughts: Overall very happy with the purchase. Time will tell on quality on the inside

5 out of 5 eggsWell rounded gaming laptop/desktop replacement

Pros: An excellent price for a lot of good components. You know what you're getting with the CPU, GPU, BD writer, 16Gb of RAM and a sizable HDD so I'll go over some of the unexpected nice things about it.

- I thought the keyboard would be quirky but ultimately suffer from the same issues as many laptop keyboards. So far I have been pleasantly surprised. The keys are solid and have a nice feel to them. They definitely feel better than typical laptop keyboards and even desktop dome-switch keyboards. Even its party trick, the fancy lighting, isn't just for show. There's an option to light only the left side of the keyboard which is excellent for late night work/gaming.
- 2 open slots to add more RAM, with caveats (see cons).
- Sensible hard drive layout making it easy to add your own hard drive and swap them around as necessary.
- On the MSI site they say this computer won't output 120Hz/3D. It can't do it on the main display, VGA or HDMI (1.4a, 120Hz requires 1.4b). But the DisplayPort is v1.2 which does support 120Hz. Connected to the Asus 144Hz monitor over DisplayPort it will support up to 144fps. I haven't had the chance to test 3D as of yet, but there's no reason to think it can't support it with the right monitor and an NVidia kit.
- The Killer WiFi does actually seem to have an effect, and is quite robust for a laptop WiFi device. It comes with software that does a good job prioritizing which applications get preferred treatment, and in games where my ping has floated between 80-120ms I spend more time than I used to near 80ms instead of 120.
- Either the sound card software or hardware does a remarkable job of managing the sound levels of applications. After turning off Windows communication sound level adjusters (which have always acted in unexpected ways for me) the computer does an excellent job of managing the volume of applications if it hears voices coming from a particular application. I haven't tested extensively to know if it's only with communications or if voices in a movie also cause this, but not only does it lower the sound of the non-voice applications, it will gradually but not too slowly bring them back up to their previous volume.
- The integrated speakers are good, and combined with the software have some great sound.
- Hardware button for disabling the touchpad.
- Battery life is pretty good for a machine of its size. Can last 5+ hours doing typical desktop activities.

Cons: The cons are minor, but worth noting.

- The integrated mic is useless. Even with max boost it's hard for people to hear me.
- Touchpad is a tad small and supports some Windows 8 gestures, making it very easy to accidentally have the side charms pop out. Synaptics have other compatible drivers which will allow you to disable this.
- The OS recovery software is a bit of a disaster. It works, but could be a lot better. It's slow to go through the process of prepping the ISOs. It can install to USB, but if it doesn't like the USB key you use it'll close itself and delete any work it did, requiring you to start from scratch (wasting about 10-15 minutes). It'd have been nice to have the option to burn to a Blu-Ray disc instead of 4 DVDs. It'll automatically partition your drive with two visible partitions with a C: drive occupying 60% of the HDD, a D: drive occupying about 35%, and other hidden system/recovery partitions. If you're adding an SSD you'll probably want to install a clean OS so you can allocate some space to over-provisioning without crippling the space even further.
- Comes with a McAfee suite pre-installed which is bad enough. Unfortunately the one this laptop comes with cripples the machines performance. Out of the box an Ultrabook felt faster. Uninstalling McAfee resolved this.
- I added an SSD to my machine and encountered the same issues as other users when trying to reinstall the OS. As an aside when I installed with a fresh copy of Win8 it detected the installation on the other hard drive and either used the key from there or validated the hardware with Microsoft, thus not requiring me to enter a different Win8 key and activating it automatically.
- There's space to add RAM, but it comes with two caveats. First as mentioned on the MSI site FAQ this system is more compatible with low voltage DDR3 (1.35V). I wasn't aware of this when I bought extra RAM at the store and after installing it have had weird BSOD issues with the system which, after installing a fresh OS and performing a few stress tests on it, I'm suspecting is because I put 1.5V RAM in it. The RAM is good and the machines passed all stress tests, but the varying voltage (and higher than preferred voltage) I believe means typical use can randomly cause a BSOD. Second the internals of the laptop could have been better designed as the copper tube linking the GPU and CPU heatsinks goes over the open RAM slots, meaning you'll need to partially unscrew the GPU heatsink to add the second stick of additional RAM.
- The multiple displays feature is awesome, but it comes with Optimus technology. Whether this is a boon or a bane is up to the user, but it definitely means you won't be trying to get a few more FPS out of the integrated display because it's driven by the Intel GPU which won't allow you to tweak the frame rate of the display.

Other Thoughts: - With the exception of the McAfee disaster the pre-installed software isn't too bad, but while some of the OEM OS tweaks are good (OS Sounds is set to "No Sounds"! File extensions enabled by default) some are bizarre ones (ISO files aren't associated with Windows Explorer by default, meaning you can't mount ISO files until you do the necessary association). However if you're laying this much down on a laptop you should know how to set up your OS.
- The newegg gallery doesn't highlight it, but it comes with a hard drive caddy so in the event you add a second hard drive it's relatively secure. It doesn't come with a caddy to replace the Blu-Ray drive with a third hard drive. In fact, it doesn't come with too much in the way of unnecessary extras at all.
- If you're reinstalling the OS download the WiFi driver from the MSI site first. Standard Windows 8 wasn't able to install a generic driver for the WiFi.

For the price you're getting a lot of above-average components and flexibility. It has plenty of power to separate it from lower (or even similarly) priced gaming laptops and other niceties (multiple displays, up to 32Gb RAM) which make it a competent desktop replacement for work. If you need more power than this I'd recommend looking at Clevo devices. You'll get a greater variety of customization options (120Hz/3D compatible screens, choice of CPU/GPU) but to build a configuration like this one it'll currently cost you at least $150 extra.
