Customer Reviews

Awesome laptop, CUK customer service is very helpful Review by Dusty
I purchased the MSI GT72VR from CUK and with standard free shipping I received it a little over a week later. It is a very fantastic laptop with better sound than I had expected. The speakers are DYNAUDIO and sit in front of the monitor. The keys definitely feel like you're working on a laptop, but are still quite comfortable and everything feels very solid. The keyboard doesn't have any flex to it which is nice. With the keypad on the right everything seems to be shoved into a very small space. Every once in a while I do hit the number keys when aiming for the arrow keys. I do wish the keyboard would have been spread out a little more. I haven't had any issue with it getting hot. It's very cool and I don't anticipate needing a cooling pad. the fans force the air out the back very well and are not loud at all. I did originally have a problem with the sound from the speakers and with the MSI true color. I had to uninstall the realteck and Nahimic audio drivers and delete the associated programs and then of course reinstall them from the MSI website in order to get the speakers working correctly. As for the MSI true color I just uninstalled and reinstalled again and the problem was fixed. My only problem is I got a display with some major color banding problems and also some slight backlight bleeding toward the bottom left and right sides. Since I'm within my 30 days CUK is going above and beyond to replace it and ensure the display will be working correctly on the replacement before it gets shipped. I did change the refresh rate from 60Hz to 100Hz with some improvement, but I still had some color banding problems. The battery life seems to last over a couple of hours with normal use, and seems to be very comparable to other gaming notebooks. If it wasn't for the issues I had with the display this really would be a fantastic laptop. I'm excited to get the replacement. (Posted on 2/23/2017)

powerful laptop Review by AMMAR
powerful laptop with no fear of any programming defeating it.
- Battery life is way better than any of its competitors.
- You’re getting a Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card to justify why this computer is a beast.
- The overclocking is already in and controlled the system. It makes your gaming experience even more badass.
- The cooling is very quiet, no super loud or moderate noises of this computer trying to cool down. With the power it’s coming with, it’s very impressive of this laptop can being very quiet when using hardcore programs. (Posted on 2/23/2017)
