1 out of 5 eggsGreat until the HD controller died

Pros: It was a great laptop with a lot of room for growth in RAM.

Cons: The HD controller died at 6 months, and now it can't detect any drives.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so awesome.

Pros: Let's be honest here, it's what you're all dying to know:

- Yes, the keyboard lighting is as awesome as you think it will be.
Sure, you can't majorly personalize the colors, but gosh it looks great.

- The keyboard spacing is also really nice, as our the keys at the press in. The touch-pad is so-so, it's honestly better than most I've used (still not as good as a mac, but hey). You can also easily plug in a mouse and disable the track pad so as not to disturb game-play etc.

- The screen is that good kinda of gel that you like. The colors are gorgeous on it. However, it's very susceptible to damage.

- 8gb of RAM is currently shredding through most games I'm playing. I just downloaded Elder Scrolls Online (5/19/2015) and I'm playing on Ultra High detail and the computer has no problems.

- The cooling fan booster is AWESOME.

- Speakers are pretty good. They can be heard throughout the house, obviously not with bass, but still, good distance on these puppies.

- I'm not sure what the material on the front is made of, some kind of aluminum or metal, but it is of very good build. I wish it was on the bottom as opposed to thick plastic, but hey, that's alright. A quick glance reveals no visible fingerprints. In fact, my original plastic wrapping is still clinging on to the keyboard.

- The 1TB HDD is relatively quick for not being an SSD (which everyone wants). I have to wait, maybe, 1-7 seconds for large folders to load at worst. Everything else, including boot, goes very quickly (boot takes about 24 seconds, sometimes faster on good days).

- I haven't had any problems with connecting to the internet or blue-tooth.

- Windows 8 runs great on this laptop, no complaints.

Cons: - Webcam/Mic kind of stinkk. It also could just be Skype, but this computer and Skype don't seem to get along well.

- You have to open the setting for your webcam/mic/bluetooth/ some other micro settings in order to activate your webcam upon receiving the laptop (which is really scary because at first it seems like it doesn't work). u_u

- The virus defense programs equipped on the computer are not too bad, but honestly, for the computer price should be higher.

- I've been told swapping the HD or the RAM inside is a pain. This is lame and unfortunate as I'd like to be able to eventually upgrade my hard drive.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am extremely happy with this gaming rig!
I've been in play with it for a total of 5 1/2 months now.
I would stay it is still current and would go toe to toe with computers
priced at $2000.

My previous computer was a 15inch 2011 Macbook Pro. I am very VERY happy with my switch.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: It is fast! Makes running Lightroom a dream and uploading pics from an SD card via the USB 3.0 is super fast too.

Cons: None that I have noticed. Some bloatware would be my main complaint.

Other Thoughts: I really like this laptop and I am excited to put it through it's gaming paces.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: the specs, came with 4810 instead of 4800 which is nice. runs great out of the box. came with bracket for 2nd hard drive
m2 compatible

Cons: windoze 8.1 , of course that cant be helped at the moment. came it bracket for adding hard drive but voids warranty do do so. has room to add 3 more 8gb mem sticks but voids warranty to do so, so far the only real con is that sticker on the bottom saying open this and you loose warranty..which is where the upgrades take place.

Other Thoughts: so far a great laptop. just want to do the upgrades they brag about being able to do and not void warranty.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat performance and hardware.

Pros: Plays all of my games on high 1080p. Built in disc drive. 2 year warranty.

Cons: Screen developed a dead pixel after week. Keyboard seemes to be loose. The operating system crashed and would not boot. I am currently in the process of returning the product. I like MSI, but I have had too many problems with this one. My GE60 was much better.

1 out of 5 eggsGood computer until you need help from MSI

Pros: Works when it works

Cons: The speakers started to go out and distort so I RMAed it under the manufacturers warranty and they literally just did the speaker test and told us it was fine, but while under process load the speakers distort. I am extremely unsatisfied. What are my options?

Other Thoughts: Horrible Experience from MSI Customer Service and Support. They were rude and acted like they did not care. It sounds like they literally just BSed through the repair. I spent 103 dollars to ship this thing back to them only to have them say they can't find anything and ship it back without talking to me first.

3 out of 5 eggsUpgrade nightmare

Pros: Great keyboard lighting
Powerful CPU
Good GPU

Cons: I was not happy to see that your warranty is void if you open the rear panel to upgrade RAM/HDD etc. Being as this is a performance laptop, I would assume that upgrades would be the norm. Especially that the default hard drive is a 7200rpm mechanical. I do not like the face I have to void a 2 year warranty if I want to install a SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI GT70 Dominator

Pros: Very fast with i7
GTX 870 can handle every game I've played at very high-ultra
Great lighting on keyboard
Extra turbo fan works great to cool down the gpu

Cons: Heavy
Fan is a little noisy
Only last 45-50 mins on battery

Other Thoughts: I love this laptop, it's a beast. I can play all the games I currently have at very high to ultra settings. BF4, Crysis 2-3, Borderlands 2, all the batman games, latest tomb raider. They all look and play amazing. I would definitely recommend this laptop to anyone. Also great for multi-tasking, I hook it up to my LED for games and stream Netflix or surf the web on the laptop screen. It doesn't skip a beat!
