Not a good board12/18/2019 9:30:07 PM

Pros: - Fast memory and processor speed - Bluetooth works great - Good features - Overclocking works ok

Cons: - Wifi keeps disconnecting - on-board RGB lights constantly reset - Updates cause more problems than fixing

Overall Review: I've used this board for a couple of months and it seems to have many problems when it comes to updates. I had to RMA the first board I received. This second board worked fine right when I got it. I updated the BIOS and device drivers, and that's when problems started. The wifi is slow and it constantly disconnects, which is my main frustration. I updated to latest Gigabyte and windows drivers, and the issue still remains. RGB fusion doesn't boot up with the color scheme that I saved from the last settings. I'm really disappointed in the drivers and software for this board and hope they fix this very soon.

Nice look and runs well5/17/2017 4:43:37 PM

Pros: Case - Nice clean aluminum look and is a bit durable. Video card - Can run latest games decently. Webcam - It's not HD, but still descent for built-in camera (enable it with FN + F6). Expandable - Able to add M.2 SSD, able to upgrade HDD (but you must clone HDD to recover information). Audio - Built-in speakers and audio 3.5 mm ports are pretty good. Bloatware - There is some, but it's not as much as other manufacturers. MSI has good utilities. Overall Value - Good specifications for the price

Cons: (Not major issues in my opinion, but annoyance considerations) Laptop Charger - Connections are lose, and with no light or indicator built in, you may not be charging your PC and run out of battery. Battery life - Only 1 hour of run-time (approximately). IPS screen - Viewing angle is better than TN, but marginally. It's not as great as they advertise. Track pad - Gets annoying when accidentally touching it (tap = left mouse click). Be sure to disable (FN + F3) while gaming or else you'll misfire.

Overall Review: I've had this laptop a couple of weeks and For the value of your money for what you are getting, this is a great laptop. Unfortunately, I bought this before the free deals came through. I had to RMA the first one because of bad HDD partitions, but the second one was fine.

Fun, for a while4/13/2017 4:05:26 PM

Pros: Fun game at the beginning.

Cons: Once it changed from fast pace action to 3d adventure game, I lost interest.

Overall Review: If you want sonic adventure with dialog and story, then this is the game for you.
