MSI 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Slim form factor, super fast
Sleek design; nice looking machine
Keyboard felt good for typing, but...(see cons)

Cons: --Screen dim & very grainy. Had a cheap look & feel.
-- Trackpad was awful, even with tweaks. Unresponsive, difficult to click, wouldn't register taps or gestures, while typing the cursor would randomly jump paragraphs (even with tweaks to driver software)
-- Fan noise was annoyingly loud. Firmware update fixed it, then the laptop ran slightly hot.
-- Keyboard was poorly installed. Massive flex/buckle in some areas (so if you lightly touched one spot, the adjacent keys would move up and down.)
-- Backlighting was poor, overall. Some keys had none. Some were dim, some were bright.

Other Thoughts: The poor screen and absolutely terrible trackpad killed this laptop for me (bought and returned within ~2 weeks of purchase). The mediocre backlight contributed, as well. I really wanted to like it, but the flaws didn't justify the price tag. For ~$2K I expected better build quality.
