Intel 7260HMW IEEE 802.11AC, dual-band, 2x2 Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0 Mini PCI Express combo Adapter - 867 Mbps+300Mbps - Internal
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works as I needed it to.

Cons: Drivers web page may be a little difficult for some. Take the time to look and read.

Other Thoughts: MSI GT70 2OC laptop. Replaced the Killer WIFI / BT combo card.

Make sure you download the right drivers for your OS.
Win 7, Win 8 and Win 8.1 all have differing drivers.

Make sure your laptop mfg does not black list devices.

MSI GT Series GT70 2OC-017US Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 24GB Memory Super RAID (128GB SSD*2 RAID 0+ 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M 3GB GDDR5 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Specs as below.

Cons: Luck of the draw, Drivers need work. See below.

Other Thoughts: Games freezing
After some testing I found the 1TB hdd was the cause of the freezes. Look for a way to not have the HDD spin down / sleep to see if that helps. On the SSD they do not have this issue.

Killer Wi-Fi / BT
The Killer Wi-Fi / BT suite needs to be in place for the BT. I use a BT mouse and with out it the mouse drops out. I don’t like the suite in my start up and would prefer just the basic driver install from device manager. Less in start up the better.

Optimus and GeForce
I still would like MSI to provide an option to bypass the Intel HD4600 graphics in bios so games and other programs will see the GeForce.

Re-image
The reimage will take a few hours, the full HDD wipe will take up to 12 hours.

Fan Noise.
Expected from a laptop if your doing heavy work / games. Older games like Everquest with max settings do not tax the cpu/gpu so the fan is very quiet.

I did not have time to do more testing on the BD Rom but I would like to replace that with another HDD if I could and have the BD rom external.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Pros: Specs

Cons: Cons: Driver need work. Games freezing, blue tooth dropping out. Restore taking well over 12 hours…Bad hdd’s? BDwriter having issues with reading CD’s as well as the driver CD the laptop came with as well.

Other Thoughts: The HD4x graphic and GeForce thing needs a lot of work. We need to be provided an option to bypass the HD4x so it is not even seen.

Cant disable it as the GeForce drivers are using that and will not function with out the HD4x active.

Returning the laptop as it looks as if the hard drives, blue tooth and BD writer are bad.
