First impressions - great buy and value 1/19/2020 9:52:16 AM

Pros: - Came almost completely updated. Very little to do.
- Easy to remove back panel and update RAM and add additional PCIe NMVe drive.
- Solid build
- Nice feeling keyboard and track-pad
- USB i/o working great all around

Cons: - Display has light bleed in bottom corners. Only noticeable in dark color displays and not distracting during normal use. Has been noted by other review sights. Still a very nice looking display.
- Battery life is not good. Just a few hours realistically.
- Black aluminum finish shows a lot of finger prints.

Overall Review: Overall a very good performing PC so far. I have not push the CPU or Nvidia card to max yet, but when I do I'll update this review. So far everything moves beautifully in this system and the updated components I added are stable and required zero tweaks.

Added - 2 x 16 gb Crucial 2666 DDR4 RAM and a Samsung EVO 970 500GB to the second SSD PCIe slot.

Note: Do not buy a Silicon Power model PCIe NVMe SSD for this. It will likely not be seen or initialize. I found this by practice and found others who had the exact same issues with the same drive/laptop. You've been warned.

Low profile and 1660 TI great. single channel ram- WHY? 1/15/2020 8:42:24 PM

Pros: 1660ti, additional NVME x3, low profile, 120Hz monitor

Cons: SINGLE CHANNEL RAM! , Screen quality isn't the best (not the worst either)

Overall Review: Happy with the buy. But TRUST ME if you buy this make sure you get at least one more stick of ram to install and preferably buy two sticks rated at 2666Mhz with lower than 18 latency. You can get 2-8G sticks for decent price. Make sure it is 2666Mhz tho. DUAL CHANNEL RAM is a must! The performance with single channel ram is garbage, and I mean that.

MSI please explain why you set this up with 1 stick of ram? 2-4G sticks would have been much better. You have literally forced anyone that buys this laptop to break your factory seal and install additional RAM.

If you are not willing to open this puppy up then then do not buy!

Side note, I also installed another NVME x3 but in order for it to work I had to take out the existing nvme and install in the open slot then install my new one where the original was placed. Otherwise windows would not recognize it, although in the BOIS you could see it but that is about it.

All in all I am happy but ONLY after the added RAM, wait for this thing to go on sale if interested.

1660 ti is a very good GPU, frame rates at 1920x1080 are simply great.
