Good specs for the price, but my experience hasn't been nearly flawless.

Pros: -Great specs for the price, especially considering it's prebuilt
-Nice design, lots of power in a compact space
-Two M.2 SATA SSD's pre-configured in a RAID
-Built with fairly high quality internal components
-Some room for expansion, one additional HDD slot and a slot for a traditional SSD.

Cons: I've had this machine for four months now, and I've had quite a few technical issues with it in that time.

-When I first took it out of the box, I thought the machine was failing to boot intermittently. After some troubleshooting, I discovered an odd issue with the graphics system where if a monitor isn't powered on BEFORE the PC boots, the graphics won't load to any monitor until you reboot the system completely. I tested this with several monitors, and only hooked one monitor up at a time during my troubleshooting. Updating graphics drivers has not helped this issue, and I've learned to live with it.

-Twice so far, the machine has simply stopped working and failed to boot for other reasons. One of these occurrences was the week I purchased it, and another was a month or so ago. I still do not know the cause of the outages, as I ended up doing a couple hours of troubleshooting and then settled for gradually taking apart and rebuilding the computer (which is quite a bit harder than average to do, due to the form factor, by the way,) which eventually solved the issue. I have added a couple of drives (one SSD and one HDD) to the machine which I thought might have been the cause, but they were the first thing I took our when I began troubleshooting and it didn't solve anything.

- Just this week, the version of Windows that came pre-installed in the machine began to give me boot messages about my activation expiring, which also makes me question the steps that were taken when the OS was installed on the machine.

That's it for my personal issues with it. There are a few other small cons, such as the power supply being a bit loud, but nothing too outrageous.

Other Thoughts: Despite the cons, overall I am glad I purchased the machine. It's working fine at the moment (aside from the activation issues) and I did get it on a decent sale, so the value is there. Thanks to the reviews on similar MSI Aegis models, I believe my experience isn't common. However, I have a feeling that if someone who doesn't work on computers for a living or as a serious hobby had problems similar to mine, they would have sent it back without a second thought.

Great Investment

Pros: Easy to setup! No complicated steps are needed to put it together. Literally just plug and play!
Compact design makes it easier to find a space to put it in.
Looks like a Transformer!
Powerful and comes slew of utilities that help manage your gaming and sound system.
Doesn't leave as big a hole in your wallet compared to other PC's with similar specs in the market.

Cons: Lack of a VGA port for some screens seems to be an issue.

Other Thoughts: Definitely would recommend the product, worth the investment considering it'll take 4-5 years till upgrades are needed.

5/ 5

Pros: -Made a 2 business days shipping order and surprisingly arrived on time and the FEDEX tracker did a great job at following my package.
-Outstandingly packed and shipped, the box it comes in is vary well padded and makes the most of its size.
-Was vary easy to get set up and going vary little interaction was needed besides configuring your personal setting. Was gaming in less than minutes of powering on.
-Vary, and I say again VARY sharp design!!! everyone who walks into the room instantly stops and stares at it.
-Vary quite! even when overclocked running multiple programs and the latest games its stayed at optimal temps and quietness.
-One month into ownership and still no complaints for the price and hardware for a prebuilt desktop!

Cons: -Wish the keyboard and mouse cables were a little longer but hey beggars can't be choosers.

Other Thoughts: Now along the lines of PC Gamers I'd say I fall somewhere in between the lines of a commoner and a lower level nerd.... so I understand and am continuing to understand further with this piece of hardware what exactly I need to learn, but all that aside from the perspective of a lower level nerd.... I give this baby a solid thumbs up!!

Awesome Gaming Rig

Pros: Wicked chassis
Monster Video Card
Small footprint

Cons: False Advertising: There is no “For Honor” digital download for this.

Product Registration: Once registered at the MSI site with the computer serial number, you will continue to get daily reminders to register every time that you restart your machine.

Backup Discs: There are none. You must burn your own backup discs however there is nothing in the utility or documentation that tells you how many discs you must go out and buy. Seriously, there is no way to calculate this beforehand to let the consumer know?

Bloatware: There is a substantial amount of it that comes preinstalled (Candy Crush Soda Saga, Minecraft, Paradise Bay, etc.) How hard is it to give consumers a clean install of an operating system?

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this computer at the current price point with the caveat that there is no free game, and you must go out and buy discs to burn your own backup. Plus, manually removing the bloatware installed on the SSD is going to be a pain.
