Unstable after 8 months 6/28/2020 9:25:20 AM

Overall Review: This was purchased to replace a 5 year old Latitude that was a total loss due to repair costs out of necessity since I did not have time to get another business laptop. In the beginning it was fine, but it has gotten progressively unstable over time. The original issue was due to the Intel graphics crashing regularly when in use and defaulting to the Microsoft display driver, but this was resolved by disabling and enabling the integrated graphics. This is less of an issue now, but the machine still crashes from time to time.
However, the WiFi has recently become unstable too and is slow or does not work. I have not had issues with the USB ports like some others, but the iGPU and WiFi are not reliable on this laptop and will have problems given enough time. Every other laptop I have used is stable except this one, so it is isolated to the MSI laptop.

Quick but glitchy 6/11/2020 9:38:50 AM

Pros: Fast response time
Quick pulling things up
Lightweight
Easy to use

Cons: Flashing purple graphics
USB port cuts in and out
Power plug is in a horrible spot right where a right handed person would put their mouse

Overall Review: I have owned this laptop for 7 months now. I use it for gaming - mainly World of Warcraft. It's quick and easy to use which makes the issues more tolerable. But from day one the USB port that I use for the mouse cuts in and out.. this can be easily fixed by unplugging the mouse and re plugging it back in but it's annoying. The major issue here is the flashing graphics.. it has did this from day one too buy has progressively gotten worse - anything purple colored in my games will constantly flash like a strobe light. It seems like a graphic card related issue. I update my computer as they become available as well as my graphics card. When I first got it it didn't lag at all and now it does which I don't understand considering the specs of the computer are more than capable of running World of Warcraft which is the only thing I have downloaded to the computer other than updates. I like the fact the computer is fast but the other issues are making me second guess my purchase unfortunately.

Great value. Need headphones or external speakers. 1/1/2020 11:09:27 AM

Pros: The screen is beautiful.
Very slim for a gaming PC.

Cons: Speakers are very tinny and weak compared to others in this price range. We own three laptops used for gaming, and this one is by far the worst-sounding.

Overall Review: So far, I've had an easy time setting this up and gaming on it. It's been great so far; fast, responsive, attractive. The 500 GB drive should be adequate, if minimally so. Boot-up is fast, typical for an SSD. I honestly can't complain. This was a great value. The only low note is that the speakers are so weak, my wife has to use her bluetooth speaker to supplement it when she games. None of our other laptops have required that. Still, I would purchase it again.

Excellent laptop for my games and general use. 12/14/2019 5:59:58 AM

Pros: I like to play GTA and this laptop is just the thing I needed, the graphics are perfect the game run so smoothly. I'm very please with it. The boot up is quick.

Cons: The keyboard is very flat, I need to get used to it, same with the key layout, a few differences like the Home and the End key need to press the FN key to make them work, I'll get used to it I'm sure.
You need to enter a password or a pin to get in, I haven't figured out how to turn it off yet I'll sure I'll figure it out.

Overall Review: I would recommend this laptop to folks who want to play games, it has enough power and you can't go wrong for the price.

Battery wont charge past 58% 12/11/2019 7:31:43 AM

Overall Review: Bought it for the other half 3 weeks ago. The only real issue so far is the battery won't charge past 58%. Checked the cord and changed to different outlet, rebooted a couple times. I still need to try a couple resets and calibrations I found online hoping to try to keep from having to return it. It was bought for the new job and has all the company apps and settings and we don't want to go through all that again.

Any one have this issue and know a fix?

Fantastic for the price!! 12/5/2019 10:10:05 AM

Pros: This thing is a beast. I’m a huge computer nut and I have built about 10 custom computers in my life. I also was looking for a machine to handle insane data processing (currently going for a masters in data science). This computer handles an insane amount of processing power, and can even handle a bit of VR development as well. Keeps cool with the cooling and is built super nice. LOVE the steelseries keyboard. Overall a fast, productive product.

Cons: Subpar battery and screen, but once again if you’re looking for a powerhouse on the go, those factors aren’t always the most important

Overall Review: I would 1000000% recommend this product

Great product, with the single best feature I have ever seen! 12/4/2019 12:12:39 PM

Overall Review: Laptop is great, good specs, with with a rebate a wonderful price. GPU, keyboard, thermals all good, blah, blah, blah... What I really want to talk about it this wonderful button near the power switch. Now I'm used to a myriad of questionable media buttons, seemingly arbitrary FN+ key combos, and just like you have probably seen every iteration of the "Sleep, Power, Reset" keys in my day. But this wonderful laptop has one button to rule them all. I'm not sure of MSIs name for it but simply put this button just makes you cool. Wanna impress the ladies? Done! Want to make other gamers envious? Easy! Want to intimidate literally any person who may dare to oppose you? MSI has a button for that! This button, in all its glory, simply toggles all the laptops fans between their normal autonomous state, and full RPM. No lie, this darn thing just spins up every fan to max and leaves them there for as long as you like. Significant other wont stop nagging you? Guess what, your laptop has a button for that. With this thing going you're unlikely to hear a gunshot in the next room (irl though the fans are very efficient and even at full RPM are not that loud.)

It's a good laptop, buy it... or don't. I don't know you.

Amazing laptop 12/4/2019 9:56:31 AM

Pros: - super fast
- great deal for the specs of the laptop
- made my wife's life so much easier as she does college work and some gaming.
- red back lit keyboard is just a really cool feature.

Cons: Haven't come across an issue yet.

Overall Review: I highly recommend this device and wish I had the money to get one for me too as this was a gift for my wife. This laptop is amazing for the price, we can turn it on and sign in in under 15 seconds - games take no time to load and barely are pushing the processor (it's Sims for the most part, but with every expansion pack involved). Super fun device.
