    Well can't get a replacement so Amazon gave me a steal on a GT73 4k screen 6820hk and a GTX 1080. Only downside is it only has a HDD. No lie $1858 before taxes.

    I will say this SC17 is an amazing work of art and attention to detail. Built like a Tank I wish the screen was not like it is or I would still have it. Ahhhh oh well

    The GT73 is a beast, I just don't see why it only has an HDD, they all come with some SSD configuration. I tossed an Intel 600p in mine as the boot drive for less then $100.00 US so it's still a good deal assuming there aren't other issues with it.

    Actually that configuration didn't come with an SSD:

    It's still a great deal, though! MSI also has an accidental warranty on it, so if the screen (or anything) arrived with damage they may be able to just do the repair for you instead of sending it back to Amazon again. Either way let us know how it turns out when it arrives.

    That is a good deal, I think most people who bought one with a 128 SSD ended up getting another one anyway.

    I'm sad the conversation on the SC17 pooped out. These are uncommon but check the right boxes for me, so I am interested in user comments.

    Currently there are two models with GTX 1070, one with G-Sync one without.

    sorry to see that, EVGA will cover anything that is a manufacturing issue. Our dead pixel policy will cover your system even if there is only a single stuck or dead pixel, unfortunately we cannot cover physical damage like our tech said. Thanks

    From the picture it does look like the screen is damaged, and not a defect. I would guess there was uneven pressure applied to the screen.
