4 out of 5 eggsWorth the money, AWESOME.

This review is from: MSI GS70 2OD-002US Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB x 2 SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8

Pros: Great laptop! I used this to replace my old desktop that needed upgrading and wanted something i could use for gaming and something that i would take with me anywhere for school and such. This is a great laptop especially for the price. It handles everything i could possibly want to run and then some. The boot times are extremely fast thanks to the SSD, the graphics are amazing and the colors this thing displays are deep and rich. The cooling system would be awesome for users who regularly use it as an actual "lap" top because it angles the heat comming out up at a 45 degree angle so you dont cook yourself while using it which is a nice touch. It runs EXTREMELY quiet even when your gaming. the battery life is amazing for a laptop of this magnitude when running in a power saving mode. Simply turn the "backlight" down all the way and i get up to seven hours of life when im just browsing the web or using word or study software and you can adjust these with the press of a button right from your keyboard with the function key. When gaming however it gets cut significantly due to the computer pumping out all the extra power to enjoy your games to their fullest. Also its SO THIN i was suprised when i got it how compact it was for all of the hardware its packing. On top of everything else this machine is extremely sleek and looks great, rocking 4 usb ports, HDMI ports, basicly every hookup you could want you got it. The killer lan chip in this thing actually helps me get even faster speeds from my internet than my isp gives me I pay for 60 mbps and when i test it im regularly getting 65 even up to 70. I love this thing I would reccomend this laptop to anyone who wants a really solid gaming machine with the portability of a laptop at a great price.

Cons: The integrated track pad can be a little weird sometimes, but i use it as a thin client on my desk so i dont run into this problem, but somone probably will. also I HATE the tiles in windows 8, however with a little know how you can set up your rig to boot to the desktop. Another thing some people may miss is that THERE IS NO DISK DRIVE so if you have things you want to install off of a cd you will need to go but an external drive(20-30$) not a big deal but definitly an extra step, with those things in mind i gave it 4 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid mobile workstation & development machine

This review is from: MSI GS70 2OD-002US Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB x 2 SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8

Pros: Quad core processor with Hyper V, so it looks like 8 logical processors. Solid state primary drive for fast boot and program launch times. Light. Thin. Sharp 17" 1920x1080 display. Decent sound system. Customizable backlit keyboard. Full num pad. 4+ hours of battery even when running demanding apps and programs.

Almost $1,000 cheaper than comparable brands, considering what you get.

Cons: Comes with Windows 8, but you can immediately upgrade to 8.1 for free from the Windows Store (after you do Windows Update for the first time). Scroll pad takes getting used to. Start button moved from left side of keyboard to right. Home/End keys require FN button. Indicator lights on front right (HD/WiFi/Bluetooth/etc) are really bright. No DVD/CD drive. Ventilation and power plug seem odd (but it never runs hot).

Other Thoughts: I needed a solid development machine, since the demands for hardware are similar to gaming. I can run the Windows Azure emulator with multiple deployments, several Visual Studio instances, Outlook, Word, and multiple browser windows at once, and it never slows down. Incredible. You can occasionally hear the fans pick up, but it cools quickly.

I had to get used to the missing DVD drive, but Windows makes it really easy to mount ISOs.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome laptop

This review is from: MSI GS70 2OD-002US Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB x 2 SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8

Pros: ► awesome keyboard
► slim profile
► Good sound
► powerful specs
► Killer Wireless, LAN, bluetooth
► Boots up in five sec
► superfast
► MSI logo at the back

Cons: ► Didn't like the screen
► Temperature maintenance is not so good
► Not so quite
► gtx765 only works on demand while playing games otherwise the laptop just uses intel graphics
► spacebar: it needs pressing from the center or else it just don't work
► windows button on the right side
► too many bloatware

Other Thoughts: ► keypad works fine after patching and disabling the edge swipes
► Faced black screen of death after updating the drivers and windows from 8 to 8.1. Had to run in safe mode to resolve it
► sound blaster failed to pick up the sound device after updating

It is a very nice laptop although not as light as i expected. The resolution is nice and the applications run fast and smooth. Initially I faced many problems with the OS but got it resolved myself with some troubleshooting

4 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop!

This review is from: MSI GS70 2OD-002US Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB x 2 SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8

Pros: Thin design, solid construction, and very fast.

Cons: Touchpad needed adjustment, and a driver update, but works good now. It does take a little getting used to. The Elan touchpad doesn't seem to be as intuitive as Synamtics touchpads are, but I'm flying along with it now. The unit should ship with the updates installed in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: I own a computer repair company, and I bought this for personal use to replace my gaming workstation and home computing needs. I immediately updated the laptop to Windows 8.1 and started work on the touchpad. Disabling taps is the real key to getting it to function halfway normal. The taps (tapping to emulate mouse clicks) are too sensitive. Even moving the mouse makes things open/close. I can see where the touchpad might be a little maddening to figure out for users who aren't a bit tech savvy. But then again, this is the kind of unit that gets purchased by tech savvy people more often than not. The touchpad is perfectly fine now with a few easy adjustments from the control panel, and I'm extremely happy with its performance. Even under heavy load, it doesn't seem to overheat.

The hardest part of everything I had to do was navigate MSI's website for drivers. Drivers are not easy to find there.

5 out of 5 eggsAn awesome form factor does an awesome job

This review is from: MSI GS70 2OD-002US Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB x 2 SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8

Pros: - The screen is fantastic. It's matte screen is bright, vibrant, and giant. I've seen complaints about colors, but I think they're nitpicking. It looks great and that's what matters.
- Keyboard is very responsive and the backlit keys go a long way for a "wow" factor.
- Runs games at medium/high quality without any sputtering. This isn't a top of the line desktop, but you're not missing much detail on it.
- Form factor is incredible. Very thin. Big, but thin and sturdy. Hinge is strong.

Cons: - The trackpad is infuriating. It isn't that it doesn't work - it's that the settings are so hard to get right. Your track pad is automatically disabled when typing and I had to go into my regedit to change it WHILE using settings in both Metro and Desktop mode to get it to work. This was really frustrating when all I wanted to do was play games where I walk and move the camera.
- Battery life is subpar. Absolutely and totally subpar, but not a deal breaker.

3 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: MSI GS70 2OD-002US Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB x 2 SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8

Pros: Powerful. Excellent screen. Light weight. Thin. Fast. Very very mobile.

Cons: Track pad is terrible. Multi-touch on the track pad doesn't work at all! I have all the options set correctly, downloaded the latest track pad firmware and software and it just doesn't work. That wouldn't be a big deal except there's no way to scroll with the pad, you have to use the arrow keys or click and drag the scroll bar. On a laptop that costs well over $1,500 it is inexcusably awful.

Windows 8 works on tablets, not on non-touchscreen laptops with broken track pads. It's just frustrating. There are ways to get 8 to act like 7 but you have to pay for it. You could downgrade 8 to 7 but that requires Windows 8 Pro and this comes with Windows 8 Basic.

You really have to press hard on the shift key to get it to register. The keyboard, even though boasted as a good keyboard, is not very good. It feels pretty cheap and some keys don't work well at all.

There are extremely bright white LEDs shining out of the front of the laptop and you can't turn them off or dim them at all. Easy to fix with a bit of electrical tape but they're just stupid. Why are they there? Why do they have to blind me in the middle of the night?

Other Thoughts: This is a great laptop for mobile gaming. It plays all the latest and greatest at great frame rates and everything it does is very fast. The hardware is well put together in this small form factor. I love how mobile it is.

These few cons that I've listed are avoidable, I don't know why MSI didn't notice them when making this laptop. It is so close to being perfect, it's just being let down by a company that doesn't seem to want to go the extra QA step for it to be great. When you're gaming, you'll love it. When you're doing anything else, it'll annoy the hell out of you.

3 out of 5 eggsInteresting

This review is from: MSI GS70 2OD-002US Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB x 2 SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8

Pros: Great slim and light design. Large display for gaming and mutli window work. Great keyboard design by steel series. Customization to keyboard colors is excellent. Runs quiet even when maxing game settings. Insane speeds on bootup and program running on the super RAID 0 SSD's.

Cons: The mousepad. I thought upon the purchase maybe it was just faulty with the other customers but it's as bad as they say. Fortunately i'm a gamer and like most gamers we don't use a mouse pad to play games. The trackpad stops receiving input at times, and clicks when you don't want it to.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat look, great speed and so slim

This review is from: MSI GS70 2OD-002US Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB x 2 SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8

Pros: It's built with good quality material. It has a great design with the colorfull keyboard and the black alluminium.

2SSD + 1HDD + GTX765M + i7 4th gen, you won't have problem anywhere with that. Fast boot and great performance.

The dual fan keep it cool with no problem.

Also the small weight is great. It's like having a 15inch laptop but its a 17.

Also the powersuply is quite slim. (vs my asus ROG laptop)

Cons: I had some lack of skills with windows 8 at first but this isnt really a problem.

The fan do make a little noise but nothing excessive.
Sometimes i hear a squweak from the space bar. I hope it won't break or anything since changing the keyboard doesnt look simple....

With the slim design if something break, it won't be easy to fix i guess. (ex: battery, keyboard, etc.)

Other Thoughts: The power suply looks a bit cheap. I don't know if it will survive more than 2 years... anyway powersuplies always need to be replace eventualy.

1 out of 5 eggsMemory Management Errors

This review is from: MSI GS70 2OD-002US Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB x 2 SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8

Pros: When it worked, it was fast with good graphics

Cons: I bought this computer mainly because I was going to be out of town for work. Not even 3 days after I received the laptop I started having memory management errors and the laptop would go into restart loops. Since I am currently out of town this has left me without a laptop over the next week and a half since they could not send me a replacement "out of town."

Other Thoughts: As I will be travelling more, I will probably look at getting a refund. No use in trying my luck at another laptop and be stuck out of town again without any means of replacement.
