Great laptop

Pros: -great weight (<6 lbs) for its size.
-bright screen
-runs games @~60 fps on medium settings
-stays fairly cool while gaming for a laptop.

Cons: -hard drive feel sluggish at times
-warranty sticker covers a screw hole so you will void your warranty if you want to replace any hardware

Overall Review: the only complaint I have about this laptop would be the hdd. maybe it is because my last two laptops had ssd in them and this only has a hdd, but at times this laptop seems to really slow down. never for very long, but long enough to notice.

would recommend this product.

Great laptop, worth the money

Pros: -This laptop is light while still feeling substantial. It is also very thin.
-I really like the design and feel of the laptop. The palm rest has a nice, cool feel to it while gaming. Also, the backlit keyboard looks very cool.
-The fan is not very loud.
-The IPS screen looks great.
-The keyboard has a good amount of travel. I chose this keyboard because other thin laptops I tried had really short travel.
-Runs all programs/games very well. I have Windows 10 running on it.
-Overall, everything is running exactly the way it should. The lack of issues is a big pro.

Cons: -The speakers are loud, but bass is lacking even though there is a subwoofer.
-Opening the laptop voids the warranty. However, I have read that MSI allows the installation of RAM and HD, but I am not sure if it is true.

Overall Review: As of July/August 2015, there aren't many laptops that can compete at this price point.

almost unusuable

Pros: quiet and lighter than my 1 year old dell

Cons: screen is very dark, almost to the point of being unplayable in WOW, as well as just dark in all apps. I walked into my mine in my WOW garrison and couldn't see hardly anything in half the mine, hardly can see anything in undercity. I have adjusted the screen resolution, screen brightness, switched it to 'game' mode, adjusted the power settings, and downloaded the latest nvidia driver thinking that may be it - I am playing while plugged in and have adjusted the power settings to keep the screen at 100% brightness while unplugged. The screen is currently at the brightest option. I purchased this because my 1 year old Dell got so hot while playing and given the difference in the screen brightness, I may be shipping this back and going back to my Dell, or just ordering a new Dell. I just contacted customer support but if anyone has any ideas, please send them my way.

Great gaming laptop with some noise and keyboard issue

Pros: 1). Newegg is super in doing bussiness. Very easy and responsive to communicate for any questions
2). This MSI GE72 2QE gaming laptop is stylish, light weight (compare to gaming laptops), and super fast
3). With 3 M.2 SSD slots for future upgrade
4). Excellent anti-flare screen.
5). Computer bootup really fast even with HDD

Cons: 1). The most concern is the FAN NOISE. The default setting won't allow you to change fan speed. It will continuously run at least 3000rpm even when CPU is quite cool.
2). The Keyboard has two issue: the "space" key is NOT responsive. In many cases, you thought you click the the space key already, but no response; another problem is the "WIN" key is located on the right side, however, looks like Fn key and WIN key are switched, every wield
3). CANNOT open case to install SSD hard drive! If you do it, you will void your warranty. This is another thing wield.

Overall Review: For the fan speed control issue, I eventually find one program that works to control both CPU and GPU speed. The software is called "Silent Option" which I think is developed by MSI. Now if I am not gaming, the computer is quiet. The internal HDD still make some noise but it is acceptable. I wish MSI allow me to open case and install SSD so that I will have a silent system for office use, and a powerful system for gaming when I needed.

Terrible Quality

Pros: Great Specs, looks really cool

Cons: I had two, both were return-mailed within 24 hours. Both had screen issues, the first had a yellow-colored area about 2 X 2 CM, and the second had several dead pixels on the bottom right area. As well, both adaptors looked cheap and poorly built, and there was a strange grinding rattle from the processor area. Also, the DVD tray feels incredibly cheap and poorly built.

Overall Review: Bought one of these from the Microsoft store, not newegg. Specs are great, and the laptop looked good otherwise, but these issues are just too disheartening for me to want another one. I feel like this is a laptop that will develop all kinds of issues in a few years.
