Customer Reviews

100% Satisfaction Review by Lucy
Pros: Tremendous value. Awesome performance for reasonable price compared to similar models from other brands. Graphics are really impressive. Beautiful display.

Cons: Audio was distorted at first, fixed after some troubleshooting. The 17" display looks awesome and the processing power packs a lot of punch, but it all requires a pretty hefty machine. The computer is a little bulky to be a "laptop" in the literal sense. Portability isn't the reason to buy this model.

Overall: Exactly what I was looking for. (Posted on 3/7/2017)

Great Price/Value ratio. Review by KL
Great Price/Value ratio. Good screen. Fan noise not audible while gaming. Good build quality, with little flex on the keyboard. The keyboard is good, with one small defect initially, where the spacebar key was sticking. That was an easy fix. Screen looks good, with slight bleed which is typically unnoticeable.

Nice computer and decent price Review by Tranning Bot
Ordered this laptop with a 500gb ssd upgrade. The specific type of ssd is SD7SN6S512G1122. I can't find too much information or reviews regarding this one but the speed test is not bad. The test score with AS SSD Benchmark is about 800 slightly lower than my intel 730 though port of intel 730 is SATA III and this one is PCI-e. But the upgrade only cost 85 dollors. I think it's acceptable.

Almost 80 centigrade gpu temperature when I was playing overwatch. If enhanced cooling started, it could be lowered to below 70 centigrade. Very good cooling performance!

The defect is that it is tooooooo heavy and thick. Heavier and thicker than any laptops I used before. Anyway, I don't think I can carry it when I go outdoors. (Posted on 2/1/2017)

Great Price, Great Laptop Review by DuskWolf1027
Ordered this laptop and got it in a little over a week once it was ready. Got it for a great price and it works great. Everything was upgraded and haven't had any problems from cuk. This thing is a beast!!!

Just a heads up for other people though, when you turn the laptop on it will automatically upgrade to windows 10. The windows upgrade will download drivers that will make your audio sound like static. All you have to do is go into your control panel, uninstall realtek audio, and nahimic 2. Than go to MSI website and scroll down to downloads, put your laptop info in and download those two drivers underneath audio. Reinstall realtek, restart your laptop and than download nahimic 2 and you won't have any more problems with the audio. Keep in mind this is unrelated to cuk and to do with windows.

Haven't run into any other issues and like I said, its a great laptop. (Posted on 1/27/2017)
Impressive computer. Review by Michael
Great picture and sound. Well made. Even more important was good advice on the purchase from CKU. (Posted on 12/30/2016)
So far, so good! Review by Evil_Ghost
I am not from USA, and I bought this laptop while I was visiting New York. I bought it one Thursday before the big black Friday sale, until Monday afternoon I did not have any reply from CUK. I have to admit, I was losing my mind, the shipping was supposed to be until next Friday, and I was leaving on Saturday. CUK team contacted me on Monday afternoon and the item was shipped the same day (what a relief). I received the laptop by Thursday (before expected) I have to give CUK that.. they were fast with the delivery.

The price was really good, the best one I could find after a 2 days of market survey online. I bought this one with an upgrade of 500GB SSD and 32GB RAM. I got a $299 dollar discount and I ended up paying 1400ish for the whole laptop. On top of that, MSI gave me a code for MAFIA III for registering the product, which is awesome, sadly no gifts from CUK :(

First touch on the laptop was really nice, (it is a HUUGE latop, which I love) first of all, the windows and all MSI controllers were correctly installed and the best thing of all was it came with no bloatware at all! (thank’s CUK). As expected, the laptop is fast as hell, I have to buckle up each time I use it, lol.

MSI did a really god job with this one, the screen is crystal clear and displays very nice colors, the lid is solid and gives a nice feel of good construction, the DYNAUDIO speakers sound really good for a laptop, although you cannot tell that it has a bass (a thing to improve). The keyboard has a nice feel, steel series did a good job, the backlight is fancy and you have plenty of profiles to configure it (personally I think this is useless, however, I can now match the keyboard colors with my razer mouse). The touch pad is big enough to navigate through all the screen and the buttons are nice and firm. There is a button to turn off the screen (I don't find the use of it, but nice), another one to speed up the CPU and GPU fan, another to launch a predefined app (multimedia) and the last one to switch between keyboard color profiles (nice one too).

On the one side, you have 4 USBs. SD slot and 4 (yes, four) 3.5 mm sockets, one for headphones, one for microphone, one for line in and another line out (don't get why the last two). On the other side, 2 more USB and the Optical Disc Drive. On the back, you have a rounded AC power input (very comfortable and not prone to get broken), the LAN port, 2 video outputs (HDMI and mini display), a USB 3.1 and the Kingston lock (and two huuuge vents).

Overall, the laptop has a really nice construction, you must like big laptops (like me), it’s quite thick. So far with the games and software I have tested, it performs outstanding, it is all I bought and more. This is the replace of a 6 years old Toshiba QOSMIO, which I also loved, so I had my expectations really high on this one. So far so good!

As for CUK, they fulfilled everything they promised, I have to say, I cannot believe that their support lines are only from 8 to 5 and during weekdays. They didn't work on black Friday, which is the they sell the most, I believe. Anyhow, they did as they said and I cannot complain. Thank you and I would certainly buy again from you.

Good value/price ratio, big&heavy, relatively very quiet and cool, good keyboard Review by GLJ
This machine is very good for someone who likes a 17.3" screen. It is relatively cool and quiet, has an MXM GPU (replaceable), performance is not limited by heat like in other machines, display is an IPS of the latest generation
With the steam.origin coupon and the CUKUSA discounts this is a very good 17.3" option compared to other machines (Posted on 11/10/2016)
