Pros: great for gaming WHILE PLUGGED IN
Cons: battery life is ABYSMAL at this price point.
Overall Review: while running simple tasks like Chrome or Spotify, this laptop will last 4 hours even with battery saving mode on. Otherwise, great laptop, decent thermals, doesn't whine too much when under load.
If your looking for a laptop you always plan to have plugged in, this one is good, but at that point you might as well have a full pc.
Pros: headset has great quality, surround sound is surprisingly accurate for two speakers, in games it is easier to hear footsteps from different directions with these compared to genuine 7.1 surround sound speakers, but is definitely noticeable that these aren't genuine 7.1. Rumble in headset was a fantastic idea and im not sure why more companies haven't implemented it, it feels like I'm in a movie theater when playing games.
Cons: This headset still noticeably has two speakers. The surround sound is not as crisp or genuine as actual 7.1 headsets, which is dissapointing at this price point.
Microphone is of VERY poor quality. Even at defaults it sounds like there is a grainy filter over your voice.
Overall Review: if you can get over the mic, this is great for gaming.
Pros: Tons of airflow, brilliant design, rgb 24 pin works as intended
Cons: Cable management is a nightmare. The only place to cable manage is a small indent between the back rad mount and the psu. Psu extension cables are difficult to work with in this case and you will have trouble working with rgb without extension cables. Larger graphics cards like msi trio cards will interfere with a rad if your trying to mount it in the rear mount and the case is too small for them anyway, because the tubes on certain aios will press against the glass if your trying to mount them on the rear mount, and psu cables will press against the glass on larger graphics cards. If your working with large GPU's and rads, get the bigger case. If you've got smaller cards and aios, this case is great.
Overall Review: Good case, just buyer beware, larger hardware warrants the larger case.
Pros: brilliant looking rgb
flow indicator is a nice touch
fans work silently and work great
Cons: having the pump on the tubes is a bit awkward
Overall Review: im doing overclocks with a 9900k and its keeping the temps at ~ 50-60 under load. Works good, but change the positioning of the pump, it just looks awkward.
Pros: all around great light strip
Cons: I dont know how, i dont know why, but this thing is making a piercing buzzing noise.
Overall Review: Like this thing doesn't even have moving parts, how is it actively making noises? None of the lights are out, Ive plugged it into the correct rgb header and everything works perfectly, EXCEPT THIS SHRILL BUZZING NOISE. Its noticeable from outside my room when its on.
Overall Review: I gave a glowing review on the 3 fan dr12 box set from these makers, and as advertised on the box, this fan was supposed to work with the fan hub that came with the 3 fan box set. It did not. The male plug as it came did not fit, and even after tinkering with the casing to make it fit, the hub instantly fried the rgb. The fan itself worked, and worked well, until the plug and fan casing started overheating, where i promptly shut it off and promptly threw it back into its box.
If you bought the 3 pack and are looking at this product to expand the amount of fans for your case,
Buy another 3 pack, theyre cheap enough.
Pros: nice looking rgb, great feel, and responsive.
Cons: rgb cannot be completely reprogrammed, only the back part and light in front of the mouse seem to change, the scroll wheel does not. In addition the software that can be downloaded on msi's site is still only up for windows 8. It runs on 10, but its still old
Overall Review: good mouse, a software update would be nice.
