Pros
Incredibly powerful, it did not come with a lot of bloatware, but I still suggest doing a clean OS instal of course. I suggest to wait off on Windows 10 due to the fact of lack of driver support, when switching from 8.1 to 10 there have been a few bugs, nothing too serious. But the laptop is amazing so far I've played all my games on ultra settings had no problems with it what so ever.

Cons
Only con I have is the fan is REALLY loud, and the trackpad is not that good, I switched to a mouse the next day.

Summary

Over all for the money this computer is amazing, I strongly suggest it.

Pros
quiet effective cooling good keyboard descent touch pad decent mobile workstation

Cons
heavy - to be expected the screen seems a bit flimsy / doesn't feel solid enoug short battery life waranty will be voided if you upgrade anything cannot be cleaned from the inside without voiding the warrenty

Summary

it is heavy, it is powerfull enough to survive my life style and it feels great. i was looking for a laptop able to work with 3d programs such as blender/c4d/3d studio max and it definitely can handle these programs, the 1 terabyte is great but i filled 3/4 of by just transferring some of my games and installing all my software i needed.while the tn panel isn't exceptional, i it still does a decent and has no dead pixels. the laptop itself feels solid and almost shock resistant but i wouldn't test it being scared of breaking it. the 8gb of ram are good but i would have preferred 16gb and the fact that i can't just change the ram without voiding my warranty pretty much what's stopping me. this also means that i won't be able to access the internals to clean the components. the battery also dies quickly but knowing what's inside the laptop i'm not very surprised. as for the fan noise, it quite low, if you max it you will notice it quite easly but even when rendering, i don't notice the fan spinning.

Pros
Very nice keyboard. Typing feel so good and nice backlit. Easy and cheap to upgrade another SSD and RAM. 970m card can run any game at highest setting. Excellent value for its price compared to other laptop.

Cons
A little bit hard to remove the keyboard for putting RAM slot under. And the screws are a little bit hard to open. Warranty voided when upgrade

Summary

Love it. Gr8 m8 I r8 8/8.

Pros
Ultra fast takes everything i throw at it most games on 30fps or higher on ultra, amazing build quality, great sound, great pricing for what your getting

Cons
the fan could get loud sometimes, you void you waranty if you want to open the backplate (heard from somewhere if you want to upgrade talk to msi) besides that nothing else

Summary

it takes everything i throw at it the build quality is amazing it really feels solid doesn't feel cheap like some of the other laptops ive had. I was hoping that i could upgrade eventually to add more ram and a few ssd's but opening the back plate voids the warranty although ive been reading up on forums and customers have talked to msi and they allowed it if you ask for permission ive also read that you need to buy an adapter to add ssd slots (m.2) as for benchmarks Gta 5 runs around 50-60 fps on very high drops to around 30fps on ultra, arma 3 is at 39-50fps on ultra, skyrim is 60 fps on ultra, payday 2 60fps on ultra these are just some examples these are not completely accurate benchmarks which means you could get a little better or little worse but it the frame rate is approximately what i said. to sum it all up if you looking for a laptop that among the best and for the best price this one is a good candidate

Pros
performance, price, ugradeable, ncix support

Cons
big, warm (turbo fan works but some may find noisy), not as described (no msata support out of the box).

Summary

it does NOT support mSata out of the box. You have to purchase an adapter. If you ask MSI, you do not void the warranty opening it up to upgrade (I'd ask and keep the email). It took me awhile to sort out the mSATA issue with MSI but in the end I did. 4 stars if it hadn't been for the mSata confusion.
