It's really good but 1 big problem

 

So I really like this computer and it came with so much stuff. Like the waterproof backpack, the keyboard protector, the light up keyboard, mouse, mouse pad are great. They are all made very well. The computer is almost completely metal except for the...

It has been a little over a month and I have some free time to review this. I'm gonna get detailed for future reference for people who may buy something similar to this. -The 4k screen is great, it's sharp, clean, and detailed. There's a lot of room...

Well lets start with one that shouldn't even have been one. Like seriously. For the price we paid for this labtop it should have been flawless but that is not the case. The display screen metal casing on the top left side of my computer was a little...

Really dissapointed in this laptop

 

16G memory, Really good quality screen, even tho mine has Back light issues, Good amount of HD space, Fast CPU Speed. Overall this laptop has the specs to be a really good laptop

the 970m video card is such a disappointment. I don't know if its just my Laptop but i get stuttering in games almost with every game. The only games that play smooth are older games, all new games stuttering especially with a weird hitch that makes...

Wanted to love it, but needed accurate yellow colors more

 

If you don't need accurate yellows for your work, this is an awesome computer.

Beautiful gold metal case. Lightweight. Loved the multi-colored backlit keyboard. Booted really fast on the SSD drive. Very clear display. Came with great extras: backpack, protective sleeve, headphones, keyboard cover, and mouse. Dual fans kept it...

Unfortunately, bright yellow renders as a mustard color on the screen. I'm a web designer and need accurate color for my work. I knew about this flaw when I bought it, but everything else about the computer was so appealing that I thought I could...

Great Laptop

 

This laptop performs beautifully. The screen works fine, the keyboard is nice, though the windows key is on the right, and function key is on the left (I'm used to windows key being on the left at least). I also use home and end keys constantly but...

Great price, decent GPU, 2 HDDs, quick SSD

Fans kick on a lot, short battery life

It's nice, I like

 

The laptop, Looks, Feels, and Runs excellently. If it weren't for the Killer Wlan i would rate this laptop, 10/10. 48 FPS Really doesn't bother me, As i see it, i get to turn on some options without sacrificing speed. All things said and done I am very...

-Design: thin and light, did i mention it's Gold ? -Gtx970m 6gb: Everything is playable in Good settings, check out youtube. -Steel Series: Typing is a marvelous experience and LED's are pretty cool. -Cooling system: The fans can get loud(what did you...

-Screen: It's 48 Hz, meaning you will cap at 48 FPS. I dont mind, but for some this is unacceptable. -Wifi: Killer Wlan 1525 operates very poorly for me and many others. I'm buying a usb adapter. Updating drivers did not work in my case. -

MSI GS60 Ghost Pro-064

 

Great Laptop, would buy again

I'm just going to mention the cons of this laptop because honestly, if you can deal with those then this is a phenomenal machine. It's powerful enough to handle every game I've played flawlessly, including modern titles like battlefield 4 and crysis 3;...

Couple negatives worth noting: Noise - The laptop is understandably loud while gaming, which is to be expected. However what bugs me is the constant noise from the cpu fan even when the computer is idle. It is always on and is pretty noticable when in...

pretty sick laptop

 

I'm not really a PC gamer so I wont go on about the graphics processor and running games. I wanted a portable,stylish workhorse/ beast laptop, and that's what I got that. I've had this a few days now and have been running about 5-6 programs at a time...

Start up 3 seconds 16GB RAM Latest i7 processor Illustrator start up 4 Seconds Photoshop start up 3 seconds InDesign start up 6 Seconds (all opened one after the other while running Outlook, Acrobat Pro, Chrome, Spotify, Notepad, PowerPoint) Nice to...

Windows 8 - I love Win 7 and not used to Win 8 Keyboard typeface lettering is a bit cheesy Casing is larger than expected and same size as my old 17" laptop The high resolution screen is almost too much - programs like Chrome look fuzzy when set on...

sent it back. Here is why....

 

So there you have it. This is a really great laptop if it wasn't for the 4k panel that ruins it. I wanted ultra-HD for destop, movie and pitcture viewing, so decided to give this a try. I dont mind downscaling the resolution for games to have a UHD...

1. Thin, light, sleek, cool gold color 2. 970m is fairly solid for most games 3. screen is 4k, meaning desktop looks very sharo 4. glossy screen with tons of reflections for those that like the vibrant colors that come with a glossy screen 5. really...

1. The screen. Oh, the screen. I would have kept this laptop if the screen was the previous 3k screen. The 4k screen they use is a Samsung panel which only does 48hz refresh. So all your games will look laggy, and some screen tearing is apparent in...

MSI GS Series GS60 Ghost Pro 4K-078 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4710HQ (2.50GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M 6 GB GDDR5 15.6

 

Overall I really liked this laptop and wanted to keep it, but the screen resolution and FPS cap really made me upset. I wish somewhere in the specs it told me that the screen was only a 48hz. I didn't think MSI would put such a screen on a nice laptop...

Fast Processor (mine was i7 4720HQ not 4710HQ) and Video card. Great performance. 128GB x2 SSDs in Raid 0. 7 seconds to boot up. Steelseries Keyboard looks amazing. Sound is the best I've heard from a notebook. Packaging and free stuff it came with...

Found out that the screen caps out at 48hz which means that the FPS cap out at 48 frames. This is completely ridiculous for a gaming notebook. Some games are not compatible with the 4k resolution which I knew, but still very annoying. This is not a...
