Pros: Got in on sale for $949 plus a Free SteelSeries Gaming Headset.
Dual Fans/Rear - This is why I picked this over other brands
One M.2 SSD Slot - This was a must for me. Although had to break warranty sticker to access.
Nice Display no glare and bright enough
Nice Keyboard - Only white LEDs, Feels nice and solid
Overall frame of laptop/hinges are nice and sturdy
GTX 960m is pretty good, not like my 970 desktop but not bad for mobile gaming. Does well with the i7 cpu.
Gaming on High settings with good FPS, So far doesn't get too hot.
Plenty of USB ports, HDMI
Cons: Misleading Picture - This Laptop does not have multi-color keyboard. Only white back-lit Keyboard. Not a deal breaker but was a little bummed that Newegg mislead me.
The bottom plastic piece of Display screen was split apart, I was able to snap it back together. Made me question quality, thought about exchanging it but Newegg will not accept returns if laptop is opened (installed SSD). -1 Egg
DVD Drive - Really, who uses these anymore. Everything is digital. Could have utilized the space or made laptop thinner.
Installing Windows on the added SSD was tricky because no license key is provided. Took me a day to get Windows 10 activated on the SSD. Not a Con for the laptop though
Other Thoughts: For the price and specs you really can't go wrong with this model. Although make sure you like it and there are no issues before adding the SSD or Newegg won't accept return/exchange.
Not as mobile as I was wanting due to size. But the 17.3 Display is really nice to game on. Not too bad, only weights about 6lbs. No Regrets.
Pros: Fast Shipping
Cons: Windows 7 will not load correctly. Have been trying for days to get this installed. Once I do it goes to a black screen constantly and CPU runs at 100% at startup and idle. Can't even get to the point where I can install drivers. Stay away from this product.
Other Thoughts: Wife Through away packaging and now Newegg will not take it back.READ FULL REVIEW
