1 out of 5 eggsHardware and Software problems

Pros: Looks pretty. Nice keyboard and backlighting. Runs somewhat cool. Quiet unless the high power fan in on.

Cons: Hard drive was clicking. Sent computer back for several weeks and was repaired. The "new" HDD is still clicking. Additionally, less than a week into using the computer, I restarted it to update. When it came back on it said it was "unable to repair" and gave me the option to shut down or look at advanced options.

Not what you expect from a brand new $1400 machine. Looking for a refund as of now. Very disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat price and quality

Pros: steelseries keyboard. i7 is always a plus. gtx765 handles all current games flawlessly. I play wow d3 wildstar archeage all on highest settings with no problems.

Cons: MSI and windows 8 don't seem to like each other. to avoid slowwwwww reboot times uninstall unneeded language packs and run command SFC /scannow to fix errors. after that run windows update and upgrade to 8.1...or go back to w7.

3 out of 5 eggsmostly good

Pros: I like the screen, the weight, the speakers, and the keyboard. There was lots of great things about laptop with only one big fault.

Cons: It was shipped with broken hardware. When I hook it up to HDMI the sound doesn't go through. I called MSI, they said to get in touch with new egg. I did and it is no longer in stock. I did a lot of research before buying this laptop for the price. Now it looks like I will have to send it back and be without a laptop for a while.The warranty is almost up so if it doesn't get back in stock for a while I'll have to shell out more money to get the more expensive version. I'm not all that satisfied. I guess it's better that it came broken rather then broke past warranty.

3 out of 5 eggsMSI GE70

Pros: Great looking laptop, the price is the best part hen compared to the specifications of the laptop. Works very well with Guildars 2 and assasins creed 4. No overheating issues or problems when running games.

Cons: Lots of Bloatware when first booting up. If you uninstall the atheros neteork killer you will lose LAN capabilities with your ethernet adapter. Which in my case led to me actually messing up the OS and having to do a clean reset. Also, customer service through phone is awe full although they do respond rather quickly through registration and messaging.

Other Thoughts: If you are an extreme gamer, look elsehere. Read reviews on other sites! know hat you may be getting into. Customer Service is low and MSI is the cheaper alternative to ASUS and Alienware.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

There aren't much bloatware as most of them are the driver packages as well as stock utilities for the notebook itself, see below for program list.

Regarding the issue with LAN issue you had, you can't remove Killer suite since it contains the driver, however we do have the driver in the driver disc which came with the system.
We also provide up-to-date driver download on our website, see below for the download link.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good, but....

Pros: Very nice. Smaller than I expected. Fast.

Cons: Runs hot, even at idle sometimes. Good luck finding drivers if you want to install Windows 7. If you want to install SSD, you will need clean install of Windows for it to work. Also, need to adjust 2 options in BIOS to work with Windows 7 - simply google and you'll find the answer.

5 out of 5 eggswoah!

Pros: FAST
fast boot up even though its not SSD (i have an SSD i know what they're like, this is impressive)
plays games on high to max settings in 1080p, i refuse to accept anything lower than 60fps, only some games will you have to tuen down the settings and or resolution to 720 to get that constant 60+
not that heavy really
HUGE, i wanted a big laptop, i got one, this thing is BEAUTIFUL to look at, its really great
large enough screen for 1920X1080, everything is readable on this screen size
everything looks so nice on this screen too, really clear and HD looking, switching from this screen to my desktops, bllUGH GROSS i wanna go back to this screen instead this laptops is so nice
its matte! find another matte laptop screen at this price i dare you
good drive space
BRIGHT
this thing is bright as HECKIE so its very nice (this things very nice im gunna say it a lot okay?)
easy and QUICK to access and use the volume and brightness options for quick use, so thats good

Cons: theres a couple
the space bar is a little short on the right side, notice that extra "\" key?
battery life isnt that great, if i down clock it and set it to least brightness and all power saving options, it'll go for about 3 hours

Other Thoughts: windows 8, upgraded for free to 8.1, its not that bad really
i got this for 1030$, now its even cheaper, (this can change over time) and for 1030 this is so worth it, any less its basically a steal at that point, what are you even waiting for? add it to your cart already!

1 out of 5 eggsDOA after just a few hours of use

Pros: Beautiful laptop

Cons: Didn't last past 2 weeks

Other Thoughts: What a beautiful looking laptop! Farrari's are beautiful too, but if they don't start, what good are they?

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic laptop

Pros: The keyboard feels great (usually). The mechanical keyboard is really quiet and has smooth response. It feels great to type on for long stretches.

I can play a lot of games at good specs. I've been playing Fallout: New Vegas and Borderlands 2 lately at max specs. It runs great.

Good battery life. On a full charge, I can get about 3 or 4 hours at default settings.

Easily updateable to Windows 8.1. I don't much like Windows 8, but 8.1 is really nice and upgrading is easy. It just takes awhile, so don't do it until you have a few hours to be without the laptop.

Cons: Keyboard can get torqued. I was sitting on my couch with the laptop on my lap, and this uneven surface created a slight twist that caused the arrow keys to behave oddly. I'm not sure if this causes permanent damage, but I have to be careful to not let it twist like this.

The fan heat all blows out the left side. I'm used to keeping a drink there while I'm on the computer. I was playing Borderlands 2 for awhile with a beer next to the laptop, and the heat made the beer pretty warm, almost hot.

The MSI sticker came off easily, but the nVidia and Intel stickers left a lot of goo that is a pain to remove.

The default mouse trackpad drivers won't let you move the cursor while holding down a key. This is very annoying. There are supposed to be some workarounds, but I just got a bluetooth mouse since I hate all trackpads.

Other Thoughts: I got this laptop to replace my aging desktop. I wanted something more mobile and don't game as much as I used to, so going for a decent gaming laptop was fine. I'm very happy with this purchase. It outperforms my 5 year old desktop in every way.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes not support mirracast

Pros: For the price I got this is a very good deal. It has a 3D mark score of 11216 running cloudgate 1.1.

Cons: Only blue in the steel series
No miscast even when upgraded to 8.1
runs a bit hot over 80C
The back looks as if it was made of cheap plastic compared to the new version

Other Thoughts: I think its better to get the newer version of this since it has the GTX860M + miracast+ aluminum back+ multi light keyboard where you can change the colors

5 out of 5 eggsYup!

Pros: Great Price for the total package.
Solid performance.
Easy upgrade to add nSATA

Cons: Didn't come with an mSATA ~ but that's a simple fix
Runs a little hot. But it's a hot machine...

Other Thoughts: Back plate (to upgrade RAM or mSATA...) is big
