5 out of 5 eggsBig, Quiet Gaming Powerhouse

This review is from: MSI GT Series GT70 DominatorPro-890 Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4800MQ (2.70GHz) 12GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M 8GB 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Great gaming system. Beautiful 17" display. 2x 2.5" drive bays for future expansion. The installed 1TB drive is 7200 rpm instead of the slower 5400 rpm drives so many manufacturers use. Came with BD-RE drive for creating Blu-ray movies standard. I can now play Company of Heroes 2 on high settings instead of medium without any lag. Fan is relatively quiet, much more so than the GE60 it replaced. $100 rebate was promptly processed and tracking provided.

Cons: As nice as the system is there are a few gotchas you should be aware of. 1.) the included ram is mounted under the keyboard and requires a bit of surgery to get to. 2.) the 2 free ram slots that are available once you remove the bottom access panel are obstructed by the heatpipe for the GPU/CPU. You get one module in without removing the pipe but that's it. 3.) There are no mSATA slots. This was particularly disappointing since I was coming from a MSI GE60 which had 2x mSATA slots in addition to the single 2.5" drive bay. The GT70 only include mSATA if you but it configured with mSATA drives. This lack of easy expansion in such a thick laptop was puzzling.

Other Thoughts: I was able to take my 1TB mSATA drive from the GE60 and install it into a 2.5" adapter and have it boot immediately. Once I used a USB stick to copy over drivers from the different WiFi card and was able to get online to update any other drivers the system was up and running and the original HDD was filed away until I put it back in for eventual sale next year when I upgrade . All in all a nice machine but really wished the various components could be more easily accessed and that mSATA was included as a standard.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI GT70 Dominator Pro 890 Gaming machine/workstation

This review is from: MSI GT Series GT70 DominatorPro-890 Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4800MQ (2.70GHz) 12GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M 8GB 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Best price/performance you can get
Solid build
Great keyboard (quality wise, colors are neat but wish there was just white)
Speakers aren't loud loud but very clear while loud (my asus g750 was louder but after 3/4 not very clear, msi only gets to that 3/4 but is 100% clear)
Programmable keys are really useful
All the 'bloatware' that comes with. Eats up some resources yes, but they give you more than you could ever use.

Oh, and this things upgradable up the wazoo.

quick buttons above the keyboard are a very welcome addition, as well as the turbo fan when you need it, that was ingenious and makes the single fan work that extra bit when you really need it.
Speaking of single fan 13v, spins slower moves more air than dual smaller fans 2x5v. But it does get loud under max gpu load, and audible while gaming.
Gpu throttles while heavy gaming, runs 80% time at 989mhz, 10% at 920mhz, and 10% time 840mhz. but gpu boost is 989mhz, stock 920mhz for reference. Hasn't effected gameplay yet.

Cons: Battery life while gaming 60 min, battery life while office use 4 hours. The 60 min is category average, but asus g750 and alienware 17 managed to get over 5 hours of office battery.

Backlight keyboard is software controlled, meaning the software must fully load before the backlight comes on (meaning its dark until your fully into windows). The alienware somehow managed to get it loaded right away, asus g750 is on as soon power is applied.

Trackpad is small, I'm the kind of guy who needs a trackpad. I also came to use all the windows 8 gesteres which are almost all non-usable on this trackpad.

The bottom is full of vents, so cant use on your lap without blocking the much needed airflow.

Single fan design means its got its work cut out, and is loud under full gpu load, audible while gaming, and prolonged gaming increases temps the longer you game, throttles under heavy load, loosing performance.

But this said, the components are the best you can get, and there isnt a laptop out there that can calm the 880m yet, alienware and asus try and make it a little better, but theyre still not perfect either.

Im sure you knew this going in, but laptop weighs 8lbs, cant say its a pro, cant say I didn't know that fact coming in, but it is a con. That said, its the best laptop components you can get, and they need all the airflow they can get.

Other Thoughts: I went through many laptops before this one, wrote a review which was cut in half I guess, so im remaking a new one.

Coming from the Asus G750, the MSI had a lot of work cut out to prove it better. And, while the quality, keyboard, cooling system, trackpad, and battery weren't up to the Asus top notch quality. The MSI does give its own exceptional areas which in my book make it my laptop. Also, the Asus couldn't cool the CPU enough while rendering to stop thermal throttling at 100c (went through 7 Asus laptops all the same). The msi without turbo fan 85c, with turbo fan 75c.

I play video games yes, but workstation is what I really bought this for. I have a $3000 beast custom built laptop which can more than play games on. I needed a 3d rendering/4k video editing machine on the go. And that's what I got.

Received this laptop with a i7 4810 cpu, which was just icing on the cake.

First thing I did was use burn recovery and swapped in my 1tb Samsung evo. While I had bottom cover off, I added another 2x8gb sticks of ram, and swaped out the thermal paste on the cpu/gpu (took 20 min tops). I used antech formula 7 diamond, see about a 5-10c difference on cpu at full load, and gpu still hits 93c limit, but far less often. Yes, you have to break warranty sticker to open bottom, but I called MSI tech support 3 times, and they said every time that as long as I don't physically damage the laptop while opening it up, the warranty is still good.
Using sony vegas pro 13, this thing is a beast. If you have a specific question on it I think you can post a question and I will answer.

Gaming wise, this laptop is unstoppable. Again, specific questions, just ask. But Almost every game, max settings and minimal dips if any under 60 fps. That's, titanfall, bf4, cod ghosts, Borderlands 2, just everything. Crysis 3 and AC BF were the only games that max settings ran 35-45fps,
but there was no lag or glitch in any game ive played.
Fans and nosie
Turbo fan, yes its loud. To put it easily, lets say your bathroom is next to livingroom, someone in the bathroom is blow drying hair. Best way to put it, if you have a tv on in the livingroom drowning out some of the noise, its just like that with the laptop.
Gaming fan, while not turbo fan, it is audible in a 'quiet' room, and barely noticeable in normal room. But every 20ish seconds it ramps up just a notch for like 5 seconds then back down.
Rendering fan, barely noticeable in a 'quiet' room, normal room you cant even hear it.
Idle fan, barely barely noticeable in 'quiet' room, normal room cant even hear.
'quiet' room - bedroom at 10pm, no tv, windows closed, nothing
'normal room' - livingroom at noon, no tv on, windows open, maybe a bird chirping in background

When is turbo fan needed/does it do anything?
Turbo fan isn't needed, as fan curve is great, and max fans under fan curve slower than turbo fan. When gaming, cpu 65c gpu 85c (turbo fan cpu 60c gpu 80c). While rendering, cpu 85c gpu 65c (turbo

Other Thoughts: Review MSI GT70 Dominator Pro 890
-My laptop purchasing experience -
First thing, I have over the past 6 months gone through over 10 laptops trying to find ‘THE ONE’. This all started at Best, eventually led to Ama, and finished at New.
Starting with the Asus G750JX from last year (current year when purchased). I really liked the laptop, but it was heavier than I had originally wanted, and battery life was around 2.5-3 hours. But I had my eye on the Samsung ativ book 8. So I exchanged the ASUS for the Samsung.
The Samsung was light, 8 hours of battery, slim, touch screen, i7 and discrete video chip. Just great. But while rendering, I was getting insane heats, which ultimately lead to frying several core components and leaving the laptop unusable.
After the Samsung, I went and spent $2500 on the MacBook pro retina with discrete graphics. I was trying to stay under $1500, but figured if I wanted the best, I had to pay for the best. Well, the apple boot loaded to windows, was pretty much just a better build Samsung at twice the cost. While rendering, heats got unbearable, horribly throttled, and laptop felt like a frying pan.
When having these troubles with the apple, Asus came out with the newer versions of the G750, with the 800 series graphics and optimus which almost doubled the battery life. I figured, weight wise id have to deal with if I wanted the cooling I needed, and the battery complaint vs my first ASUS was now fixed. So I started off with the JM series with 860m. Overall awesome laptop, everything was just quality, top notch. While gaming, temps were cool, fans were quiet, and it was just awesome. But while rendering, CPU temps easily got to 100c and the computer throttled the CPU to cool it down. Which is great, but every throttle during rendering, led to my final rendered video having a glitch or artifact of some sort every time it throttled. Which was about 100 times during an hour movie. Brought it back and exchanged it for the same model. (I really liked/like the ASUS). Next laptop same thing, so exchanged it for same model again. Same thing.
So I returned for money back, and went to ama. Thinking maybe best - buy models were all of same shipment, maybe something wrong with that production line. So went and stepped up to the JS model on ama. Which was awesome, bought at 5pm, and paid $10 for next day shipping, had by noon the very next day. Just wow ama.
The new ama purchased JS series I immediately ran stress tests instead of downloading and installing all my programs to figure out the heating issues. Well the first JS laptop excelled. Reached around 90c, still warm but 10c away from throttling. I though, just great. Within a few weeks, temps were back to 100c and throttling. So I called ama, and they sent out another one for replacement. I received next day and had 30 days to return mine via provided USPS prepaid shipping box. Again, ama, awesome.
The very first thing I did again, was stress test 100% CPU, and temps w

5 out of 5 eggsDominator pro 890

This review is from: MSI GT Series GT70 DominatorPro-890 Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4800MQ (2.70GHz) 12GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M 8GB 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Fast, Superfast! This laptop comes with the i7 4810mq not the 4800mq. which is a 2.8ghz processor vs the 2.7. 8gbs vram?!? I dont think anything can utilize even half of that. I love the steel-series keyboard! The lights are cool and its super comfortable to type on. Decent Battery life.

Cons: Gets kinda warm. Just use the fan boost every once in a while. The stock Hdd bottlenecks this laptop a little.(I bought a samsung 840 evo for it) ultra fast. Really no serious complaints.

Other Thoughts: i can run minecraft completely maxed out with optifine at 60 fps and i can go to about 80 if i turn off the fps limiter.

I haven't played any graphically intense games yet. I will update when i do.

I have owned this laptop for about a month i will update this review if i find any problems.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product at a nice price

This review is from: MSI GT Series GT70 DominatorPro-890 Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4800MQ (2.70GHz) 12GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M 8GB 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: CPU performs well in what i use it for. I stream to twitch, record videos, edit projects in premiere pro, and play a few games.

The RAM performs well. I cannot find any documentation on the product number i get from CPU-Z and HWINFO.

The GPU is surprised me a little. I sort of expected to run Borderlands 2 at 30-45FPS on high settings, with physx on high. Im able to run it at 60-80FPS on full ultra, with no combat, or light combat. In heavy combat the FPS dips to about 45-50, and in hectic combat it drops to about 30-35. With Physx on low, i maintain a consistent 60FPS (vsync on) regardless of combat.

The HDD that comes in this laptop is very underwhelming. It could just be the one i got in my laptop. During boot up, i cant click on anything for 5-8 seconds after i see the desktop. When working in Premiere Pro, if the project file/imported files are on the HDD, the desktop "locks up." I know this isnt relevant to the more pricey parts of the laptop, but i feel they could have used a 500GB HDD at 7200RPM. I cant find many 7200RPM 1TB drives. Theres likely a good reason for that. I understand that a 1TB drive is beneficial for people who use their laptop as a gaming/media machine. An alternate option could be including a second 1TB drive and incorporating that into the price. I am aware that the current setup is more cost efficient than my suggestions. im just saying itd be nice.

The keyboard is much nicer than i thought it would be. The keys are pretty easy to press, even during fast paced gameplay. It took me all of half a hour to adjust to the laptop keyboard, coming from a Logitech G510. The G510 is a rather large keyboard in comparison to the full Steel Series keyboard. I enjoy the ability to assign macros to every key except for the FN key.

I have not had any issues with the single fan setup. I spoke with MSI, and they said replacing the thermal paste will not void your warranty as long as you do not damage any components. I used Arctic Silver 5 on the CPU and GPU. Temps during gaming/editing get to 65-84C for the GPU, and 65-74C for the CPU. Only game that gets the GPU to 84C is NFS Most Wanted 2012. I presume its the lighting. I cannot push the CPU past 74C regardless of what i do.

The speakers are great. I have never used studio quality audio equipment, so i cannot compare the speakers on the laptop to studio quality speakers. From my point of view, the speakers perform very well. With the aid of Sound Blaster Cinema, i can bring sounds that are usually more quiet (lower tones for sound effects for example) up to about the same level of volume as the more prominent sounds. Explosions sound so much better using Sound Blaster Cinema

Cons: Killer Network Manager actually causes me to have higher ping times in the online games i play. Being on WiFi isnt the problem. There would be no point to network enhancement software if you use an ethernet cord.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great product for the price. Of course you could blow this laptop away with a desktop of the same price. Laptops exchange some performance for the ability to be mobile.

Something that irks me is people who claim to have a tech level of "5," but cant adjust to a keyboard. In general people who claim a high level of technical expertise but have problems with a product that actual, experienced technicians shouldnt have. Thats not to say that sometimes a product isnt bad. Its just that, if you cant overcome your personal shortcomings when using a problem, you dont have a tech level of "5."

5 out of 5 eggsPowerfull, Fast, Quiet, Upgradable, and less than 2 grand

This review is from: MSI GT Series GT70 DominatorPro-890 Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4800MQ (2.70GHz) 12GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M 8GB 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: I purchased this as a desktop replacement that would be upgradable to last a good 4 to 5 years. This first month I haven't found any real shortcomings with this machine. Well, Win8 isn't my idea of great but eventually I'm going to have to learn it. So, ehh, after some visual tweaks it's not as awful. It's even starting to grow on me a bit.

Anyway back to the basics - this machine is fast to boot, runs multiple programs with ease (Word, Photoshop, Illustrator, VLC playing a movie, IE & FF - yes simultaneously). I haven't had any heat issues and haven't heard any fan noise at all. That said keep in mind that this review is based solely on more business and graphic design software and not on high end games.

Cons: None so far. I'll be sure to update if I find some.

Other Thoughts: I thought someone might be interested in the actual hardware in here so here is a rundown of the system as it comes.

Pros: This thing is powerful... ran AC4 and BF4 on maxed out settings with no lag at all. The keyboard is awesome, the sound on this is awesome, hooked it up to some speakers and the Sound blaster cinema made my 30 dollar speakers sound epic as hell.

Cons: A bit thick, It's a few degrees hotter than dual fan laptops.

Other Thoughts: if only this thing is slim, it would make it the best thing out there. GET A COOLING PAD WITH THIS LAPTOP!!! IT IS A MUST IF YOU ARE GOING TO GAME ON IT FOR HOURS!!!

1 out of 5 eggsExceptional Specs Are Not Enough

This review is from: MSI GT Series GT70 DominatorPro-890 Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4800MQ (2.70GHz) 12GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M 8GB 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Exceptional Specs.

Cons: While this machine certainly boasts some impressive specs, the life of this machine is questionable. It runs hot due to only having a single fan in the machine; the button for turning the fan up is louder than anything I've ever heard in my life. Seriously, it's like being in a wind tunnel. You can't appreciate just how loud it is unless you hear it with your own ears, and it's the only way you'll get this machine to run at safe temperatures.

The keyboard layout is not standard for the USA. The function and windows keys have been moved, the arrow keys are flush with the rest of the keys, the enter and shift keys are about half their normal width, and other keys such as navigational keys require using the function key. Trust me, you don't want to spend the time trying to adjust to this keyboard's layout if you've used computers for as long as myself.

The biggest issue for me however is the use of Optimus technology. I was not aware it used this. The laptop does not use the Nvidia card for most tasks and you cannot force it to do so no matter what you think you can try (BIOS, Nvidia Control Panel). This is confirmed by the manufacturer, so you can do some searches to verify this information. It will use the integrated Intel graphics for Windows and most applications, and only turns on for some games. I experienced issues with some games not being able to recognize the Nvidia card even existed in the machine and that was concerning.

Other Thoughts: I returned the machine. While I wanted to love this machine, the reality is having the best specs does not make for the best computer. It cost me quite a lot to return this machine, so I hope my review will help prevent someone else from making the same mistake as I did. Since it is suggested we not discuss competitors, I'll simply say that you should consider other options very carefully before choosing this one. This was the first time I tried MSI, and it will be the last. There is better out there.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Robert,

Thank you for writing this review for the GT70 Dominator Pro and sorry to hear that you had to return the product.

We would like to inform you that exceptional spec also means exceptional durability and performance. You can operate under any mode without worrying that the unit can fail from overheating, cooler boost is not required to use to operate if you are concerned of noise since the default works well.
SteelSeries Engine software allows you to customize your keys to functions you desire, for example, if you would like to have Windows key on the left, you can modify the ALT key to act like a Windows key.
Nvidia Optimus technology is a mature technology which has used by majority of gaming laptops to help to preserve battery life as well as to provide the same amount of performance required by any application.

If you have any questions, please kindly get in touch with our tech support team directly at 626.271.1004 for assistance during regular business hours from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific Time, or you can email us at usreview@msi.com.
When contacting us, please kindly include your product info, thank you.

Best Regards,
MSI Review Team | usreview@msi.com

5 out of 5 eggsNewest GTX880M BABY!

This review is from: MSI GT Series GT70 DominatorPro-890 Gaming Notebook Intel Core i7 4800MQ (2.70GHz) 12GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M 8GB 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: -GTX880M
-Easy to upgrade
-Dynaudio Speakers
-Core i7-4800MQ
-Almost no bloatware
This unit is THE BEAST~! The unit fires up game like nothing. Games run smoothly without too much fan noise. Had been playing CoD and TitanFall for few hours and had not experience any glitch.
The speaker is crazy, my friends can hear me playing game in the hallway. Feels like I can throw parties in my room with the keyboard color changing feature.
CPU is better than the old generation, I had been eyeing the GTX780 version but I heard about this coming so I was holding up until now. I was surprised to have the better CPU with the same amount of price I saved up. The cover also come with the cool looking dragon logo instead of MSI, looks so much cooler!!

Cons: It is a bit heavy, but I use it in my room mostly, so not too bad for me.
Window 8 is annoying, thinking of loading Window 7 myself.

Other Thoughts: Bought this unit because the price is perfect and I have parts myself to upgrade. The cover seems to be easily open for upgrade. Can’t wait to do that next weekend since I want to level up first.
