      I really like the MSI GS73VR 7RF but there are few things you should know about it. Let's start with nice ones: 1. Keyboard is probably the best keyboard I have ever seen and typed. Feels very nice, great space between the keys. Steel series what can I say, the best. 2. 17.3" LCD is looking great with 120MHz 5ms. 3. Dragon Center allows you to do all kinds of stuff. You can change the color of keyboard backlight however you want, you can boost CPU and GPU, MSI tru color lets you choose nice types of LCD backlight (warm/cold). Let's you control CPU/GPU fans which is nice when you do light work on the laptop and want it to be silent. 4. Thin beast GTX 1060 laptop. GPU is great, especially GTX 10 Series that is Pascal GPU Architecture is totally different than the lower series. 0.8 inches thick is really nice. 5. Games run amazing. Battlefield runs great on Ultra settings. Negatives: 1. LCD need to support G-Sync. I would even pay a little more to have G-Sync in. $1800 should have G-Sync feature built in. Even if it's not there MSI should offer an option to mail the laptop to them so they could add G-SYNC for extra money, a lot of people would want it. For example Asus GL702VM ($1350) and Asus ROG Strix GL702 17.3($1500) laptops have it. MSI should really work on it. 2. SSD that is used on this model is TOSHIBA m.2. I am kinda disappointed that they went cheap on SSD m.2. Instead of puttin Samsung Pro 960 like they did on the same model but with 4k ($2200) they put Toshiba. Can't really complain because it still runs very well but still Samsung would be much better. 3. Software issues at start. First thing is that when you turn on the laptop the first time, all these exclusive features like MSI true color, killer network, dragon center steel engine etc. are missing. The laptop comes with CD where these programs are but the laptop itself doesn't have a CD/DVD reader so it requires external cd/dvd drive. MSI BURNRECOVERY is missing. F3 recovery key is not working on this laptop because it also comes with no hidden recovery partition. When I called MSI customer service and asked about MSI burnrecovery been missing all they said that I would have to purchase disks for $35 which I think is a little greedy on their side. Also you can download all this software on MSI website but still come on guys, $1800 bucks laptop and software is not installed. It's not an issue for me because it's what I do for living, but if it's someone that is not techy that person would have some troubles installing it. Some other useful stuff: 4K displays are not truly nice displays yet. I have returns GS73VE 7RF 4K because it had greenish tint around LCD, be careful when you purchase it and check it out when it arrives. I personally prefer 120MHz 5ms over 4K. This laptops screen is really nice and I am much happier with this one instead of 4K. I will post updates if find out about something new about it. MSI developers/innovators - G-Sync is future of gaming, work on it. If this laptop would have G-Sync that would be #1 selling laptop WW. Thanks for reading and hopefully there is some use of it for you. Reviewed by Taras Savka, manager/head technician of iTech Cellular, Ridgewood, NJ

      Great computer so far.....slow Windows 10 update

      BenVee

      The computer looks great....light weight....easy to get going out of the box...Windows setup is easy to follow ..and then....the Windows 10 update....I am at hour five and 17 per cent of the download for the update is done. If I recall correctly, this was the massive update from fall of 2017. I can't believe that after special ordering the laptop that MSI wouldn't have the latest Windows 10 update on it!!!! Not sure anyone would buy a laptop when told...oh by the way...it will take maybe 8 hours after you get it before you can actually use it...Gonna leave it on all night..maybe the update will be done in the morning. BTW....checked my cable router...it is fine....this isn't an internet issue ..this is a Windows 10 update issue!

      I upgraded from a previous version of an MSI Machine. This machine with the latest I7 Intel processor, but slightly older video card works well for my needs. I don't use this machine for gaming, but for photography storage and editing with Photoshop and Lightroom. The I7 works great for this purpose, but since Photoshop does NOT rely on the video card I was Okay with an older one. The 2TB internal hard drive is great for additional storage and the 256gig SSD allows for very quick access of programs on that drive. The HDMI and the Mini Display Port allow me to attach TWO EXTERNAL monitors to easier photo editing in Photoshop. The USB .3.0 port also allows for quick backup of my internal data to an external drive.

      I have just recently upgraded from a MacBook pro in which I used to only be able to play league on. Since I have purchased this laptop I have had nothing but positive experiences. It loads every game I have played very quickly and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an upgrade as it is easy to transport as well.

      The laptop is fast and has great controls for lighting. This is truly VR ready (I have HTC VIVE). This thing is a beast and can handle anything thrown at it.

      MSI GS73VR 6RF Notebook Review
      Thinnest Pascal yet. This complete chassis overhaul provides GTX 980M-level graphics performance in a smaller, lighter, and cooler package. Fan noise is still a stumbling point for a series that delicately balances between a razer-sharp designFull Review
