An impressive product

Pros: Very easy to set up.
Smooth response from system with what I've done with it so far.

Cons: Not really a con, since it's not exactly marketed to what I will primarily use it for, but the default keyboard backlighting isn't my cup of tea.

Other Thoughts: I am primarily a 3D content creator, but the system as shipped is more than adequate to the requirements of the software I will be running on it. I create images with DAZ Studio using the nViidia Iray render engine, which requires a GeForce GTX for optimal rendering speeds and quality. I also use zBrush, Substance Painter and Substance Builder, which also require a substantial system. The nVidia graphics subsystem, 32 GB RAM, the SSD, Core i7 CPU and other advanced features of the laptop more than offset the keyboard backlighting. I will also be using this for some gaming and will be pairing it with a Wacom Cintiq Pro 13 tablet at some point this year.

Good Gaming Laptop

Pros: - Powerful
- Quick load times for games.
- Aesthetically pleasing.
- LED keyboard if you're into that sort of thing.

Cons: - Ran very slow on startup until I installed drivers.
- Came with a lot of junkware.

Other Thoughts: When I first bought this PC, it was slow on startup and would lag badly, which baffled me given its specs. I opened the task manager and noticed my CPU usage would spike up to 100% every few seconds then go back down to 2%. After a few days of troubleshooting, updating drivers, and getting rid of and disabling tons of junkware, the thing is running like a dream. While I overall consider myself very satisfied with this product, it's a shame that the thing is so discombobulated coming out of the box. Yeah, sure, you have to do all that stuff with most PCs, but this one was a bit more of a nightmare than my usual experience. That's my only complaint.

Worst experience ever

Pros: -Looks nice

Cons: I have had issues with this piece of garbage from day 1. I have owned this for almost a month now and I would like to share my overall experience from the laptop its self to Neweggs terrible service. The laptop restarts because of "driver_power_state_failure roughly every 10 minutes to an hour, it just depends on the day. I bought the laptop because I'm in game design and development so I use programs Like Maya and Substance. I have spent hours upon hours troubleshooting, trying to get most of these programs to run with no luck. The ones that do "work" 8/10 times force the laptop into driver failure and restart the computer.
I tried to return this for obvious reasons but Newegg did not accept my return because I didn't have ALL of the original packaging, though I did have some. May I beg the question, "Who keeps all the packaging?" It wasn't as if I expected to return a laptop i spent nearly $2000 on and even if I had I wouldn't have suspected I needed every box it came with.
I will never use Newegg again, nor MSI.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself time, money and sanity. Go with a different product from a different website.

First day using it....LOVING IT

Pros: Pros

- Quiet
- Fast
- Bright / easy on the eyes
- Customize-able
- Great sound

Cons: Cons

- Not 120hz display
- GTX 1060 is activated when you plug the laptop into an external monitor or it will use the native Intel Graphics
- A bit heavy than I liked

Other Thoughts: The cons are something that I can live with, it's just something I noticed. After just about an hour of using this laptop, I noticed the space between my left palm and the track-pad is a bit too close for my liking, finding myself accidentally moving the cursor a lot.

Key spacing can use an improvement, all too close to each other. Space near the track pad gets a little warm after an hour of using.

I think I will get a mouse for this.... As of right now, I am unsure about battery life. Will hopefully update this post after I've gone on my business trip.

Good product terrible company to buy from

Pros: Graphics and design.

Cons: random restarts
random loading screens
blue screens
speakers cracking
finger print marks

Other Thoughts: Do not make the same mistake as me and buy from Newegg. I returned this product after all the cons. They received it shipped back to them with dents due to shipping or the company itself based on the identical dent marks and made it seem like I did it. They refused to ship me a new one and will not refund my money. Do not buy from Newegg due to rude managers, shady, and not worth 6 hours on the phone for just to end up getting no help.

Near perfect as expected

Pros: Ready to go out of the box
Relatively lightweight for the specs
sleek design
Plays everything I throw at it on ultra
Quality laptop that still feels like a laptop
The speakers sound nice (had to mess with the software to get it this way, see cons)
The keyboard is nice but the software to edit keys is not quite what other manufacturers offer as far as customization.
The hotkey (fn keys) make sense with placement.
Though the laptop will get hot, it never gets too uncomfortable. I am able to play games with it actually on my lap, the rear exhaust fans help with this a lot.

Cons: The audio had some issues out of the box (kept crackling when programs volume was set high) I was able to fix this by reinstalling Nahamic, which seemed to be corrupted
Though it did not have a lot of bloatware there was some, Norton being my biggest gripe. First thing I did after turning it on was uninstall Norton.
The Laptop has some issue waking from sleep - it seems to take longer to wake from sleep and be usable than starting from a cold boot.

Other Thoughts: Overall the laptop does a great job of diving desktop like performance in a sleek, portable, machine.
The SSD hold the OS and the HDD starts empty.
The IO is nice, pretty much has everything you could need. Some might complain about the 1 USB 2 port not being a 3 port but this works for me because booting into other live environments does not always have USB 3 support, so this is niceI have noticed that the keyboard profiles get stuck (Not be changeable) sometimes but this will usually fix itself after a few minutes.
Overall I am very happy with this laptop. I would recommend this to anyone that needs the extra RAM for either work or just to have it available. 9/10

Great laptop except....

Pros: Great laptop, will need more time for the pros...

Cons: If you're looking for a laptop to throw a SSD in, look elsewhere. There is a tamper proof sticker on the bottem that you need to break. First time I have seen on ANY laptop. This is enough to knock of 3 eggs, I spent almost 1800 bucks and now I have to pray that no warranty work needs to be done. C'mon MSI.. you sell a gaming laptop and expect gamer's NOT to replace the mechanical hard with a SSD. There are way too many options out there. Asus, here I come...
