It's been 2 Years. Great New, Good Now.

Pros: I've had this laptop for over 2 years now. Still using it today. I am now 3rd year in university. It is a great investment for the low cost.

Year 1: I remember running Minecraft on it for the first time 2011 and the performance was nearly flawless. I could play full screen, and the game would rarely hiccup. I also played another game Vindictus at the time, and I distinctly remember being able to max out the settings while getting at least 60fps response. Very smooth gameplay, was impressed at the time.

All in all, when the laptop was brand new, noticeably fast response navigating the GUI, noticeably fast start up and shut down.

Videos were great to watch on this machine too. playback on the media player was excellent.

THX great audio, It was advantageous when I hooked up Logitech THX subwoofer set to the laptop. The sounds were and still are glorious.

Cons: Year 2 and beyond: Minecraft began to hiccup more frequently lag spikes and beyond, not enough to make me quit a game though. Playing with Vindictus I noticed at max settings, fps dropped to 30fps. Gameplay had frequently lag spikes, lots of hiccups. Can no longer play either game at full screen. Kind of dissappointed now after only 2 years. SimCity had to have minimum settings for some graphic properties. (ie lighting, detail, etc.)

Other Thoughts: I tried to format my system one time by formatting it, playing around with data. Somehow it appeared to be a memory leak (missing windows files, windows activation key mysteriously missing one day) I ended up having to wipe the harddrive and reinstall windows.

I gave my machine windows experience index tests throughout the years , and the scores remain similar to what people on here are posting. Graphics Gaming graphics, and Harddisk remain of the lowest scores. Unsure as to why game performance , start up times, accessing memory, become slower now other than age.

Moved much of data storage to external harddrive. So space is not an issue.

:(

Pros: -

Cons: -

Other Thoughts: Well, I've owned this laptop for about 2 years now. I've put up with this thing for so long because I barely use. I have a desktop that I use on a daily basis. I generally only whip out this laptop when I don't have access to my desktop. I'm a compsci major at a large university. I really wanted to use this laptop to do homework and use it as a development platform. However, it has proven to be way too unstable to be able to get any work done.

I can honestly say that I am severely disappointed with it. I have RMA'd this laptop 3 times. It bluescreens and freezes for no reason at all. It is slow and stutters in simple applications such as google chrome and text editors. This should NEVER happen with this laptop. The specs on this thing are pretty impressive for a laptop. Many programs just refuse to run(ex: program not responding dialogue box). It is extremely inconsistent with performance and stability.

I really just don't know what to do about it anymore. MSI has not fixed this thing for the 3 times I RMA'd it. At this point, I would much rather just have my money back instead of letting it collect dust.

it's ok , still going strong

Pros: fast, update the bios or else the cpu takes a dive (slow) in battery mode....graphics are nice, still holding up right now....sturdy....good for processing things.

Cons: I hate the mouse pad....it's got a "grainy" feel to it and sometimes when I work a lot and my hands start to sweat then the mouse pad wont recognize my finger and really annoys the heck out of me...oh and the grainy feel is starting to fade in the center now...personally i preffer a smooth even pad vs this. not good for high endurance work flow. this is why i knocked out 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: I want to sell this and buy me a different one now...idk the mouse pad is really getting to me lately ....USB 3.0 doesn't seem like it even makes a difference in speed or I may need to update it. idk

Good Product, Terrible Warranty

Comments: Funny thing is I was debating whether to buy a MSI or an ASUS as my next gaming laptop. I guess that answers that.

Great Bang for the Buck

Comments: Other complaints about the lack of a physical eject button on the optical drive and the slightly odd keyboard are fair, but really haven't created any problems for me.

I am quite pleased with the quality and performance.

Excellent Bang for the Buck

Comments: I did put a 7200rpm drive in mine after a few weeks and am happy I did, but this is really a better quality laptop than I expected for these specs at this price.

Excellent Lappy for the price

Comments: Bought & use a Zalman ZM-NC100 lappy cooler to keep temps down (otherwise the internal fans kick in and the system bogs), immediately upgraded to Win 7 64 Pro, logical layout of ports for most configurations. Can support a 42” full 1080p HD monitor to game with at frame rates. DAoC (55-60 FPS), SWTOR (5-35 FPS), WWII Online (45-55 FPS), Hellgate (100-120 FPS), using FRAPS. Power brick not as massive as people complain about, but not a little thing, either. 15.6” makes it easy to carry & fits most PC backpacks. Minimalist branding does not make me feel like I am advertizing & the overall appearance belies the power of the laptop, minimizing the theft factor. Kensington lock is tight fit with the power cable in place.
Also, this is powerful enough to run DAoC in windowed mode, and several instances of Word, Excel, Project, and Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2008, simultaneously, while jamming out to iTunes and monitoring with Wireshark, FRAPS, and SpeedFan.
Would definitely recomme
