Great gaming laptop Review by JCG

I got this laptop during Black Friday (in a great discount) and I couldn't be happier with it!

PROS
- Performance: Windows 10 runs perfectly and with the gtx1060 I can play all games at max settings 60fps+ at 1080p(bf1, gw2, hots, rust, rocket league...)
- Screen: Very bright and great viewing angles. I have to say that there is a minor bleeding on the bottom left but barely noticeable.
- Keyboard: Nice and responsive with bright and colorful back light. Some keys are placed differently as my previous laptop like "Delete" or "Windows key". Also the arrow keys are too close to the numeric pad... but nothing I can't get used to.
- Weight: It is definitely not lightweight and thin like a MacBook but I was expecting it to be much heavy. It won't be too painful if you have to carry it around in your backpack.
- Cooling: I'm surprised how well this laptop handles the heat. Only when playing bf1 for a while at max settings gets noticeable hot. However if I switch ON the fan boost from time to time it will cool down the machine. Note that the fan boost is very loud.

CONS
- Trackpad: It's just not good and feels cheap. I recommend switching off the "2 finger pinch to zoom" because 50% of the time I was zooming instead of scrolling down.
- Bloatware: I highly recommend doing a Windows 10 clean install. It comes with a lot of useless and cpu consuming programs. It is very easy and simple to install Windows again and just download drivers from the MSI website.
- Small SSD: It only comes with a 120gb SSD which is fast but not big enough. I upgraded it for a 250gb and after the OS and the few games I play it is already at 75% of the capacity.

Overall I'm very satisfied with the laptop and with Cukusa service. Will update this review if I find any problems. (Posted on 12/22/2016)

I purchased this during Black Friday week, so the price was really good. It took a lot longer to arrive than I expected. CUK did not have one on the shelf so they had to pull one from the Amazon warehouse back before they could customize the machine – if you need a machine it might be worth and email or phone call to ensure they have one ready to configure and ship. The computer was as described, the screen was beautiful, putting the OS on a SSD is a must (I upgraded to a 512Gb). Boot-up was fast and responsive. Games looked really good on the 15.6” and also on an external monitor. The text for apps on the desktop did look a bit blurry, I could never figure out to get them to be crisp – I’m sure there was a setting that I missed. The keyboard was a bit different than what I was used to; the Window Key is on the right and the Fn key is on the left (can be swapped in the bios if desired); the delete key was also further to the upper left than most keyboard layouts but none of that detracts from the machine. The best part about this laptop is the cooling system. It has a manual on/off for max cooling and if you turn it on, it cools better than any laptop I’ve ever seen (it is also loud, but not distracting if you use headphones).
But there was a problem with the machine... Every game I played crashed or locked up somewhere between 5-8 mins into a match or start of the game (games played HotS, WoTs, D3). I updated the Bios, the firmware for every component, the video drivers for both the Nvidia 1060 and the onboard Intel video card (the computer runs on the intel card for most general applications and the Nvidia for graphic intensive - probably why only the game crashed and the system remained usable when dual screening); I updated all patches, uninstalled lots of bloatware, ran a disk cleanup, rolled back several versions of video drivers, along with lots of other minor adjustments and nothing worked to solve the problem (I did not adjust the frequency on the CPU or RAM as recommend by some forum post). It took me 3 phone calls to MSI to get anyone who even offered possible solutions, 90% I had already tried. The MSI tech rep came to the conclusion that it was a faulty video card and recommended I return it. The first MSI rep said it was a DirectX 12 incompatibility issue with the games I was playing and he said that I basically had to "deal with it" or buy games built around using DX12 - I was not happy talking to that guy – he offered no help at all. I’m not going to judge this brand or model on a single purchase when it came with a faulty piece of hardware, it happens. If the system had worked perfectly, the stars would have been about the same, maybe one higher and the review would have been shorter. If I could give Stars for MSI tech support they would get a one or zero.
Working with CUK for a replacement was easy, they helped with the RMA and worked to get me a new computer for what I was going to use it for. I would most defiantly buy and recommend CUK as a trusted and reputable company to buy from and deal with. I haven’t decided if I’ll replace with the same model or change to another brand or model but I’ll review it after receipt.

Hi,

I'll start my review with the different parts of the laptop based on what I have experience so far:

Screen: It is just excellent! The viewing angles is almost 180 degrees and the colors are accurate enough with contrast.

Keyboard: The keys are very responsive with just enough travel distance and a lot of customization options.

Trackpad: It's okay. I don't like the finish on the trackpad as it is not smooth if you are swiping left/right but it seems to be accurate enough.

Cooling: The new cooling system is performing well as it managed to maintain cool temperatures while watching movies and playing high settings.

CONS: Get I higher SSD if you want to install games in the M2 slot as the preloaded bloatware is around 80gb.
