Very Pleased. Great Bang for the Buck!!!

 

Added the M2 Samsung EVO SSD and loaded the OSP on it. Now it is SUPER FAST! Getting the MSi Gaming backpack for free was a great addition. Thanks MSi and NewEgg!

Looks great and runs great. I really like that it came loaded with all the hardware I needed and has M2 expansion slots for SSD upgrades. Graphic card handles everything I need it to do. Although it's mostly cosmetic, the Steel Series Lit keyboard is a...

The monitor seems a bit flimsy on the bottom where it meets the hinge area. Probably nothing to worry about as it doesn't seems to be vulnerable when closed. The area around the keyboard does show fingerprints and hand/wrist marks. Must clean frequently.

Very Satisfied. 3 Days In

 

Not ready to make a recommendation to family after 3 days, but so far so good MSI. -I don't know if it's possible, but ship this unit with updated drivers, bios, OS. Maybe work on the heat dissipation, I'm worried about it in the Southern California...

-Wanted a budget multipurpose notebook that might let me play a newer game now and then (Fallout 4, Wolfenstein: NWO). It does that and more, with a sustainable FPS and high res -Keyboard is very comfortable and quiet -Quiet Machine

-All the drivers including BIOS are outdated, took about an hour to upgrade all, so not really a huge inconvenience -Windows 10 took about 4 hours to upgrade after initial boot (my fault?) -Heavy -Battery life is to be expected. I ran it down with...

A little irritated.

 

I'd start this laptop will handle any game you throw at it. It automatically updates everything except the NVidia stuff which will have to be troubleshooted in order to get it to work. So the edges of the screen I have to keep clamping together with my...

Hardware is excellent can play any game on the market right now. Keyboard and touchpad are solid. No bloatware.

Hard drive is partitioned in 2 different sections. NVIDIA updater won't connect straight out of box. Screen edges keep popping. Very bulky.

MSI GE72 Apache-235

 

Overall great laptop for the price..

Nice size screen, super fast, nice sound will do most any thing you throw at it.

Drivers way out of date kept crashing until I updated them. It needs a bios update and I don't want to do that one my self.

Powerful but....

 

Great laptop, but I'm unsatisfied with the amount of effort I had to put in just to get it to work properly.

Powerful, will handle most demanding video processes without a problem. Build feels solid, laptop itself looks beautiful. The backlit keys look great.

BSOD for the first couple of days, drivers are outdated and you will need to know how to update BIOS, drivers, etc.

solid machine

 

this machine feels as solid as desktop, plug in your monitor mouse and keyboard and your workstation is ready to go, use of notebook cooler is highly recommended as for any gaming laptop

big and impressive screen, great specs, premium build quality, runs cool, great audio , can handle all latest games at very high competitive settings, dont let GTX960M discourage you - its very powerful card for this machine, zero bloatware, all...

HDD can be slow at times, but if you take the time to update all drivers , BIOS and utilities from MSI website for latest WIN 10 versions it will improve your experience, SSD upgrade could definitely speed up this laptop but its not an absolute must....

One word. Awesome!!!!

 

MSI should publish a list of compatible M.2 SSD drives. The documentation doesn't provide any info and info is scarce online.

I did a ton of research and this rig was the best buy for the money. It will handle everything you throw at it.

The font on the keyboard keys is a little funky and takes a little while to get used to. The brightness of the back-lit keyboard is a little too bright in the dark, even on lowest setting.

Good for the price

 

Overall i am happy with this laptop! I think its great for the price!

Its a decent laptop for the price, really cant beat it for average prices on other laptops that have similar specs. Im enjoying it so far. It very light, i was surprised how light it was, i was expecting to be more heavy. keyboard feels great.

Had a BSOD after the first restart with driver issues with the version of windows 10 that comes with it. What i did to fix it was disabling driver signature enforcement. Then windows booted fine, make sure you update windows10 to the latest version and...

Keep Looking

 

It's keyboard has pretty back light colors you can set. Doing my best to think of something positve

Probably the worst designed laptop I've ever seen and I've been working in the field for 25 years. Laptops have 3 replaceable components, the battery, the RAM and the hard drive. Unless you buy this one. In that case the only replaceable item is the...
