3 out of 5 eggsI expected better

Pros: This thing is fast. Really fast. For a laptop. The mSATAs in RAID 0 load my games faster than all my friends desktops with SSDs. It runs most games on the highest settings. Natural Selection 2 looks amazing on the new Eclipse map and Biodome. COD BO2 was a little laggy at the highest settings, but was playable. I decided to back it off a bit. Don't remember what I changed,but I kept the resolution at 1080.

Cons: Windows 8.1 upgrade was a nightmare. The firmware is so buggy that the screen would stay black when I started up. It still does it now even after I upgraded all the firmware and drivers. I uninstalled the video drivers in safe mode as prescribed in FAQ, then installed the drivers. It was not pleasant and dis the major reason for the rating. If the thing wasn't so awesome at playing games I would have given it 1 egg. To top it all off, now I have a bright red dead pixel in the top left quadrant of the screen.

Other Thoughts: My recommendation is to look elsewhere for a desktop replacement unless you can deal with the frustration of pushing the power button and still seeing a black screen. I usually have to press F3 to get into the recovery menu and then exit to windows 8.1. It was a lot worse before I updated the firmware. Almost unusable. Buyer beware.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Machine

Pros: Super fast, great graphics, excellent accessories, beautiful exterior, amazing sound

Cons: I can't find anything I don't like.

Other Thoughts: This is a beast of a machine. I can convert videos in just minutes, play the latest games with the graphics turned way up without any lag, transfer and edit high resolution photos with ease... There's not much, if anything, this baby can't handle.

I bought this machine to replace an ASUS G75VW. While the size and weight of the two machines are similar, the performance of this machine is leaps and bounds above the ASUS. The only downside this machine has, when compared to the ASUS, is that the ASUS' cooling system allowed it to be held on the lap without becoming uncomfortable or interfering with the vents, whereas this machine required me to buy a lapdesk to keep the bottom vents clear, but even without the lapdesk, this machine will still run quiet and cool while surfing the web or other simple tasks.

I love this machine and will definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a high end gaming notebook. And it comes with everything shown in the pictures (MSI Dragoon Army special edition SteelSeries Siberia v2 headset, Steelseries Kinzu v2 optical mouse, MSI Gaming Series branded mousepad, MSI Gaming Series branded notebook backpack, etc...) which is just icing on the cake.
