Pros: No issues with raid set up right out of the box.
For games and general use its very nice for the price.
Other Thoughts: 2 in raid 0 installed on MSI GT73VR Titan-17.

Again, this is in raid 0.
A few things to note, This ssd is SMART but will not report temps or any data when configured in raid. You can look at the drives individually using intel’s SSD toolbox to get more info. Tools and programs like Intel’s RST and HWInfo may not show the drives when configured in RAID so you will need to use Intel’s SSD Toolbox and select the drive individually.
This review is from: MSI 17.3" FHD 120Hz 5ms GT73VR TITAN-017 Intel Core i7 6820HK (2.70 GHz) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 16 GB Memory 128 GB SSD (PCIE Gen3x4)1 TB HDD Windows 10 Home 64-Bit Gaming Laptop VR Ready
Pros: G-Sync and 120Hz
2 nvme m.2
1 sata 3 m.2
1 sata 3 platter
m.2 slots, ram and wireless are easy to access.
A few more screws for the platter drive.
Other Thoughts: First thing is get a 32gb flash drive and make a recovery backup. 16gb will not due as it is too small.
The two nvme m.2's are the ones that have the thermal pad on the heatsink.
Pros: 4k to external TV or monitor
All USB 3
AC wireless connects @ 844 (Not actual speed)
Plays fallout 4 on ultra in 1080
Fan s are better than my MSI GT70. lower pitch.
Cons: Right bank of the keyboard will not do blue, Center and left will do full range of color.
Still has a ODD. I would prefer you remove the ODD and have it as an external add on.
For the RMA laptop received: Bluetooth issues read other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: Sigh, going back for a refund.
This will be the RMA replacement laptop I received form the first I had to return. I did not have time to do a decent test as the Bluetooth went out. No matter what I try I cannot get the Bluetooth back unless I do a factory recover. Even going so far as to remove it from device manager and trying to reinstall the drivers is a no go. I use bluetooth mouse and sometimes a keyboard so this is a showstopper.
To Newegg: Thank you I will be back.
To MSI: May need to revisit and redo some driver like yesterday.
My guess is after some windows update something conflicts and knocks out the Bluetooth as if I restore from factory recovery partition I get the Bluetooth drivers back. I am going to get a refund. I feel bad as Newegg is caught in the middle of this.
