Exactly what I expected 11/26/2019 11:19:22 PM

Pros: Runs great. MSI Products so far in my experience are grade A awesome.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I bought it for PoE of all games. Make sure to tweak the performance mode in the provided software (button next to cool boost). Bought a 1tb nvme ssd (as it has an extra slot for one) and upgraded the ram to 32 gigs.

Runs games pretty well 11/1/2019 3:02:26 PM

Overall Review: The main games I play are: Borderlands 2 & 3, League of Legends, Fallout 4, Company of Heroes 2 and Vermintide 2. While playing the more graphically intensive games, the fans can become quite loud (namely Fallout 4). Otherwise, it runs the game quite well! Usually over 60 FPS with high settings. I did pick up a laptop cooler to try to help the heat dissipation like some of the other reviews suggested as well.

Arrived slightly broken, then got worse 8/29/2019 6:33:24 AM

Pros: Seems to run most games fine. Could maintain at least 60 frames on most modern games.

Cons: LOTS of bloatware, wifi never worked properly, HDMI port went bad after 6 months.

Overall Review: Pretty much what it says in the cons. Writing this review after almost exactly six months.

The wifi will randomly drop and the computer will start functioning at a crawl until you disable and then reconnect wifi, or reboot. Now, six months in, I can’t even use a second monitor or hook it up to the TV because the HDMI port seems to have gone bad.

I’m looking into contacting support to have it serviced, but it seems like there will be a lot of hoops to jump through and I really don’t feel like spending more money on something I should probably have just instantly returned. I’ll update if I ever get in touch with their customer support.

Wouldn't even turn on 8/21/2019 6:45:27 PM

Pros: It looks nice.

Cons: Computer wouldn't even turn on. I followed the provided instructions for starting up the computer the first time. What I ended up with was a computer that just sat there. No boot screen, no fans, nothing. Occasionally my power button would flash which doing a quick google search came back with I had internal power issues.

Overall Review: Very disappointed with this product.

Recommended ! 4/10/2019 8:46:00 AM

Pros: -fast performance
-able to run demanding game such as bf5 or any other games on ultra settings with smooth frame rates.
-built quality is solid

Cons: -Cpu temp are quite high , when playing bf5 which is cpu demanding game , the temp will spike up to 98degrees celcius, bear in mind this is without cooler boost on and without cooling pad.
-only come with 1 single channel 16gb ram , this causing stuttering and Low frame rates when gaming.

Overall Review: Remember to get another piece of 16gb ram to make it in dual channel mode, and u will see your game running buttery smooth.
Secondly , undervolt the cpu for better cpu temp.
Overall this laptop has amazed me despite the cpu temp!

Very good 3/28/2019 10:18:45 AM

Pros: Fast! Great cpu and video.
Pretty good screen

Cons: 1) the battery life while unplugged is horrible and 2) the trackpad isn’t anything to brag about

Overall Review: Overall pretty happy with this laptop. I got the Rtx 2060 with 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD and 16GB RAM. Compared to other laptops with the same caliber of components, this MSI setup is the best value for your money. I’ve been impressed by MSI’s graphics cards in past desktop builds and this laptop didn’t disappoint. Thanks to the upgrades added by CUK it makes anything from gaming to project work a breeze. The 17 inch screen allows me to have multiple windows up for multitasking. Aesthetically it looks great. I like it because it’s not overly flashy like many gaming laptops on the market. The trackpad was not a big deal to me since I have a wireless mouse that I use. If anyone has been on the fence about getting a new gaming laptop I would absolutely recommend this one

Pros: 120Hz screen, Cheap compared to many other laptops running the RTX 1060. Thin and seems solid.

Cons: CPU gets very hot and you will need to use a program to undervolt some. I used XTU and undervolted 120mV in order to keep some of the cores from throttling when running games. Fans can get loud but this is normal of just about any gaming laptop without properly modding the laptop.

It works as a regular laptop. Thats about it. 3/20/2019 10:43:27 AM

Pros: If you're planning on just owning a laptop for the use of simply browsing the internet or maybe using word to write an essay then I can recommend this hunk of junk for you.

Cons: The CPU temp will jump into the mid 90s the second you load up a game and get into the menu. I attempted to play some battlefield 5 and was very disappointed to see my cpu temperatures getting as high as 95°C, which caused the thermal safeguard on the computer to initiate a shutdown (blue screen). Alongside the obvious heat problem, the system was barely able to keep the game above 60fps on medium settings (ray tracing turned off). From the research I had done before buying the laptop, I was expecting to see something more along the lines of 80-90 FPS on high or even ultra; It wasn't even close to that target.

Overall Review: It just simply was not worth the money. I recommend that anyone who views this to look elsewhere.
