Pros
It's a beast in size and power for a great price. Warranty covered the repair of the laptop that died. The warranty sticker does not apply to us in Canada is what they told me on the phone and honored that by doing the repair after I broke the sticker.

Cons
Ordered 2 for family members. 1 died in around 6 months.

Summary

Both laptops are still running strong and expected to do so for a while longer. Fingers crossed. I want to install an msata drive on one of them, but not sure they have the slot for it. Looking into it now.

Pros
The laptop is topnotch for that kind of quality and price. Screen is big and laptop too. I do trust more bigger laptop when power comes with it. It needs space under the hood for a better heat disposal system to my eyes. Nice to get a rebate on it.

Cons
HATE windows 8. Should give a bag and a mouse when you buy that kind of quality but that's not NCIX's fault. MSI C'MON! it's good stuff make it look VIP please.

Summary

Loving the laptop, hope it will last long. I installed a SSD and a 8g ram. It's perfect for my work as an graphic designer and for some software videos. And also for a gamer like me. The usual customer dont know the brand MSI. They should hire a new marketing staff. Someone like me in the team :P Sure shot here

Pros
Very good specifications for the price. So good I could not find a better laptop for 1449 with extensive searching. CPU is a monster. I have not seen it go above 27% usage in the Dragon Gaming Center resource monitor. GPU is capable of playing Diablo 3 Ultra 1900x1800 42-52 FPS is capable of playing Dota 2 Ultra 60+ FPS is capable of playing Battlefield 3 Ultra 64 man map 35-50FPS screen is immaculate like you'd expect.

Cons
I've been told filling the 4 RAM slots is difficult. Accessing voids warranty. RAM is the limiting factor on this computer however another 4-8 Gigs would be perfect, and thats cheap.

Summary

First time owning a MSI product. Very happy with what I got for what I paid. I hate windows 8 but that's not MSI's fault.

Pros
Super Fast Nice quality Great Value Good screen for TN type Unused bay for additional HD 4 ram slots

Cons
Anti-tamper sticker to prevent you from adding your own memory, SSD, etc. Ridiculous for a high performance gaming laptop that comes with only a conventional 1TB Hard Drive. It's BIG, HEAVY, and THICK but if it stays in one place it's no big deal. Conventional 1TB hard drive is a huge bottleneck and really needs to be replaced with an SSD (which I'm doing right now).

Summary

All in all, this is a really great high performance laptop for the price. The i7-4810QM CPU rockets through almost everything without raising a sweat. 2.8GHz with turbo to 3.8GHz. Haven't gamed with it yet but the GTX870M is supposed to be a little more powerful than your ATI 6970 so I'm sure I'll be delighted. Did try a couple of Blu-Ray QuickSyncs with Handbrake and the results were lightning fast and excellent quality. I compared the resulting file with a two pass X264 and couldn't reliably tell the difference. The real difference was in the time to recode. 11 minutes for the QS Vs. over 2 hours for the X264 2 pass. I already popped in a big SSD to take over booting and loading programs. Cloning it right now. Surprised to see the 1TB HD was just slid into its SATA slot without a single screw or bracket to hold it in place. Just a bit of foam on the bottom cover. Still, tons of great features and power and having a lot of fun setting it up and testing it. Overall, very pleased with the purchase. ***update *** Have finished installing 500 GB SSD and now this thing totally rocks. Most programs load in a few seconds and boot up is much faster. ***update  2*** Added another 8GB ram. Took only a few minutes. Installed in under the keyboard (comes off real easy) with the existing 8 GB. Fires up in dual mode at 1600 MHz. Also installed 960GB SSD M500 in second bay, so now I'm totally happy with the incredible powerhouse of a laptop. Installed Titanfall yesterday. NVidia auto set it up with everything on high at 1080P. FRAPS shows a steady 60FPS. Can't ask for much more than that. With a few upgrades, this laptop is an unbeatable value. Very very happy with it. This review was modfied by poster x 06-22-14 02:17 PM This review was modfied by poster c 08-03-14 04:16 PM
