    My 1st MSI computer is a hit

    |
    Posted .

    Opening the box I was impressed with the careful packaging of this machine. I especially like the keyboard dust cover, I will use it all of the time. This computer is fast at accessing all programs, probably mostly due to the SSD. I run CAD programs like ACAD AND Revit. So a solid machine with lots of memory and RAM is essential. My previous computers were all ASUS. But this MSI Apache Pro model has great ratings and was reasonably priced compared to others like the Alienware, Acer or Razer. I am still running it through initial paces and populating it with programs and syncing Google Drive and Outlook Mail. Will provide further feed back in coming weeks.

    Just upgraded from this to the GS66 & am happy to have owned the GE72MVR Apache pro! Amazing device that handled every game flawlessly that I threw at it. Even now it’s still a great bargain.

    I was never about getting a gaming laptop and everyone said go with alien ware. I tried alien ware and did not like it as much. I tried this MSI GE72MVR and i love it. The graphics and processing speed are perfect. I recommend this brand to everyone.

    I've only had it for about half a year but If you are looking for a good gaming laptop and don't mind noise then this laptop will work great for you! Pros: Intel 7th Gen Core I7 7700 IQ Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 It can run mostly any game at there highest settings. It has a great colors on its 120Hz 17 inch Screen. The keyboard is amazing its quite it lights up if you want it to and if feels smooth. Cons: The Price Isn't Cheap but they do have sales It gets hot after a hour of playing games but if you keep a fan on it you are fine it shouldn't over heat. Its fans are pretty loud when you are playing games but headphones fix that problem. Lastly the storage you have to switch almost everything to the other storage because of all the windows Updates On Your C: Hard Drive but here is a link to a site that will help you switch all your downloading and stuff to the 1 TB D: hard drive. https://www.howtogeek.com/273618/how-do-you-change-windows-default-download-path/ All in all I love this Gaming Laptop!!!

    High performance laptop

    |
    Posted .

    This is a good gaming laptop, and good value for the money. The display is good, the keyboard is good and very customizable and the laptop is very light for a 17" gaming laptop. Drawbacks are that the battery life is poor (even for a gaming laptop), maybe a little over 2 hours if you set the power setting to max battery. The build quality feels a little flimsy and the keyboard and bottom do get quite hot under max load. You will not be gaming with this machine on your bare lap - at least not for very long. I got this on sale so I think the value for money was and is good. If you just want raw performance and don't care so much about the other niceties, this computer is a good buy, especially if you get it on sale.

    Great computer super fast at everything looks amazing only issue is that the c drive is small and if you dont know better like me everything will save to it automatically and fill it and when you save things to d drive that's much larger it makes it kinda laggy

    I bought this computer for both school and gaming and everything has been amazing. I’m able to run all my games on ultra settings and the speakers are insanely loud (good thing). The fans get loud whenever you play demanding games but I don’t mind the noise. The dragon center helps you make sure that your computer is doing okay and that it’s at optimal temperatures as well as making sure your ssd has enough space.

    Great VR Ready Laptop

    |
    Posted .

    This laptop overall is great. It has a decent graphics card (1070) and works well for what I need it for. Most VR games run great on it. I also have a desktop with a 1080 Ti so in comparison, the 1070 does a decent job except for Fallout 4 VR. The screen is only 1080p but has a good refresh rate and a lot of games (non-VR) play above 100fps. CONS: The biggest issue I have with this laptop is the battery life. It...SUCKS. Fully charged I get about an hour when doing normal web browsing / non-gaming stuff. Yes...an hour. On a good day. But I wouldn't really ever try to run this thing too hard without it being plugged in anyway. Another issue is the size / weight. But that's not really an issue since it's a large gaming laptop so you should expect it to be heavy and thicker than other laptops with the same screen size. Overall I would give it a 9/10.

    Wife needed a gaming laptop

    |
    Posted .

    Bought this laptop since it had all the spec's and power that my wife would need when playing games from it and using some animation programs on it. Works without a problem. Price was a little high, but it is BestBuy not Newegg. Took about 2-3 weeks to get the computer to come into the store to pick it up. Would be nice to have had one for sell at the location without ordering it. PS purchased a M.2 drive with 500G to increase storage space.

    Another top notch gaming Laptop. Except...

    Posted .

    This is my third MSI gaming laptop. I currently do not see any reason why I would go with a different brand at this time. However, a few things that set this apart from my last two. My first two have ZERO to near ZERO bloatware pre-installed. This one does. This is probably consistent with other new models. The model, and many new models, do not have a DVD drive installed. This is not a big deal to me as I nave not installed any programs from DVD in a number of years. The result is this laptop is a lot thinner and lighter than my other two. This may or may not lead to heat concerns by having a more closed in space. This particular build the cooling fan will start up as soon as you start a game. The laptop is not even warm. The other two I had included easy to find settings to only turn the fan on when the laptop started getting warm. Also on previous builds the Killer Network did a really good job of minimizing other programs during game play. this machine has a lot more power than i have ever had but the Killer seems to not minimize other programs anymore. Don't get me wrong. this is a GREAT computer and the graphics are simply stunning.

    Top of the line

    This laptop is pretty much the best you can get unless you're trying to fork out enormous sums for one with a 1080 in it. The 1070 performs great and I can play everything at Max settings. The display being 120hz is nice but it's hard to notice like you would with a real desktop monitor. This thing performs so we'll though that I use it as a replacement for my current desktop. I use HDMI to hook up to my monitor. My only wish is for DVI connection to get the full use of that 1070 with my monitors but I'm still plenty satisfied with everything it does. The keyboard is steelseries which is nice but the software that is supposed to coordinate with the keyboard to provide lighting configurations sucks. It doesn't work often and when it does it is rather confusing. Ive just opted for a secondary Razer keyboard and that solves that problem. Overall I'd give it a 9/10. It doesn't have a 1080 but for 1600$ I ain't complaining. And then the steelseries software really isn't up to par.

    I picked this up when it was on a sale. I don't regret buying it. I can definitely say that it's one of my best investments that I ever made this year so far. I didn't get to play all games yet, but I was managed to play Rainbow Six Siege with full options with no lag. Really happy.

    I have now had this Laptop for over a yr and it is flawless! I didn't need a gaming machine but i needed a laptop that was going to be fast for the virtual machine I am running for my degree in Networking/Cyber. It is a monster of a machine, I love it! I also now do play the occasional game and it runs it silky smooth at full settings for most games I play! MSI is amazing!

    This Laptop is a super solid performer, it does live up to its "VR Ready" label and runs the Oculus very strongly. Over all very happy with this buy. Note I have owned this for a year and a half now.

    Thers are still some of the top performing systems out there. Unless you can get a good deal on a new Ryzen laptop system these are more than enough to handle anything!!

    My third MSI Gaming laptop. For a reason

    |
    Posted .

    This is my third MSI Gaming Laptop. There is a simple reason. Outstanding performance when playing today's top games. MSI Computers do not come with the same level of bloatware common with other brands. As side benefits I really like having the RGB keyboard. The screen is bright and vibrant. It communicates at high speed with my router, connects to other devices with minimal effort. And it is fast.

    Very Fast / Great with Multiple Programs

    This is a very fast machine. No waiting for things to load etc. My one complaint is the touch pad which is not that good and tends to respond even when its not really touched. Disable it with Fn F3.
