Super fast gaming laptop! 12/8/2011 8:41:44 PM

Pros: Great desktop replacement for travelers. Super fast, awesome sound and speakers, very fast GTX 460M for game playing. The built in wireless is very good with great range. Built in bluetooth is a winner with my MS mobile 6000 keyboard. Connects well using HDMI to televisions in hotel rooms. I run a Logitech full HD webcam on it and the frame-rate is perfect even with post processing effects running. Great for broadcasting HD music and video if that's your thing. Lots of USB ports which I like. Comes with lots of overclocking utilities in the OS but I don't need to use them, it's fast enough as it is. The laptop is also pretty quiet unless you turn on the fan overdrive. Plays City of Heroes pretty much maxed out in HD resolution, looks and sounds great on the big screen :)

Cons: The webcam is absolute junk. I was hoping the HD webcam would be good for doing web broadcasts, it was just horrible with no real software support. Wish it had software toggles for the audio boost and CPU overclock buttons on the keyboard. They reset when you reboot, and I normally have it connected to the TV so it is kind of a pain to reset them. I think I had one bad pixel on the screen but I don't notice it.

Overall Review: I travel for a living and needed some gaming horsepower. I am very glad I purchased this laptop. The sound system and speakers are out of this world good especially when you kick on the P1 button for the sound boost. I listen to jazz music and it really brings it to life. I go wireless in the hotels without a glitch, connect it to the TV and use wireless input devices, and I'm good to go. The lights on the outside are a novelty but I like them. This laptop is a real winner, and is as fast, if not faster, than my desktop I built less than a year ago. I looked at Alienware, but I'm so glad I didn't get one... I saved money and I got great value for my dollar. Good gaming laptop for the road warrior, and even does work when you need it to. This is my second MSI and I will continue to buy them in the future. Good looking, sounds great, and delivers the speed for gaming junkies. A+++

Rebate, wait for 8 months 5/22/2011 8:19:22 PM

Pros: great laptop for gaming and everything else

Cons: my decision to buy this laptop was made by the $100 rebate. The rebate was sent to a wrong address and now i was told i have to wait another 6 months for check to expire to get another check mailed to the correct address. Lame.

Overall Review: I have a long email thread with msi rebate support where i specifically requested the rebate to be sent to another address and i have copies of all the documents sent to them. That didn't help. Still, they sent it to the wrong address. Now i have to wait for 6 months to get my rebate. This bad experience lowered my rating of this laptop.

Exceeds hopes & expectations 5/21/2011 10:35:30 AM

Comments: I don't have any complaints about the keyboard as some people do. A couple of the keys are in funky places, but nothing worth even complaining about. I wish it had a BD drive, but I can always pick up a USB BD drive.

I ordered a USB 3.0 external harddrive with this computer and it was able to transfer 10GB of data (recovery ISO's) in about 1.5 MINUTES. I ordered this laptop instead of the @SUS G735W because it has the same internals for $400 less and also has one more USB 3 port and an esata port.

If you are on the fence about this computer, GET IT, you will not be disappointed.

all ready sent back 5/13/2011 10:02:38 PM

Pros: When it was running, very fast!! It played wow black opps like a movie!! Great graphics, great sound system in this laptop. Even though the fan is loud, it is nice knowing that the computer is cool. Otherwise I love this computer for the money and all of its capabilities.

Cons: Screen froze once, made this "shuttering" sound the day before my computer suffered a major failure. It does not turn on/power up!! I've only had it for a week! The worst part is I have many games and I hope they don't get erased

Overall Review: I shipped it back today, postage paid but ups ground all the way across the usa! (CT to CA) I want it back ;(
