Other Thoughts: For gaming, this laptop performs very well. For surfing, it's ok but the AG coating makes some images like thumbnails and text on embedded objects look grainy. The intended purpose of the coating is achieved in that it very effectively cuts glare. It's one of those things you appreciate when you don't have to move your machine or head around to see past the reflections in a bright environment. The battery life is short but you would expect that in something with this much power.
The main issue for me is the occasional blurry images and the keyboard; it's loud on one side and quiet on the other. It looks like a panel that is fit into a debauch but is not clipped down well on one side. I contacted Newegg and was instructed to contact MSI; I then contacted MSI and was instructed to contact Newegg ... sigh. I don't want to return it, I just want to have the keyboard fastened evenly; it really makes the computer feel cheap.
Pros: Good speed and large cache, install was simple and the motherboard ran it at 6gb/sec transfer rate.
Cons: Just as soon as I got the OS and other programs and files 90% setup I got a blue screen and the drive ceased to function; less that one day of use out of it.
Other Thoughts: WD is sending me another. I'm letting the Egg of the hook since they take good care of their customers; WD can eat the cost of this.READ FULL REVIEW
