    That's not unique to VA panels. Any LCD can suffer from it.

    I haven't heard much negativity with current MSI screens. I assume it's a quality screen in general. At least the 1080p high refresh one.

    As for warranty, I only recommend getting warranty if you use your machine in a way that requires it: frequent traveling for example. Otherwise I don't think its worth it.

    As always, YMMV, but I always recommend getting warranty coverage for the time you own it, and arrange to be able to offer extended warranty to whoever you sell it to.

    Laptops usually run fine, until they don't, and then whatever you paid for warranty will pale in comparison to the cost of a replacement motherboard (with CPU) or GPU. Even power problems can end up causing cascading component failures, which will add up.

    If you travel, get the accidental damage coverage too for sure, even if you only carry it around the house or to work / the coffee hangout, these things are heavy and not meant to take a physical fall, so again it's good to have if it's offered.

    Be sure and get the optimizations - paste upgrades + screen guarantee's + etc - as it costs a lot to ship back and forth so you want to have everything done before shipping the first time.

    Congrats on your new laptop. :)

    Looking forward to your input on the system, I might be getting a GS75 myself :)

    Couple more questions.
    1. It says that MSI GS75 has 3 m.2 SSD slots and then under that says * 1 port SATA only. Does it mean that only 2 SSDs will run via PCIe and 1 will run via SATA interface?
    2. Currently I am using 2 external screens + my AW 17R4 screen. Am I able to use same setup in upcoming GS75? I connect 1 monitor via HDMI and other one via Mini-Displayport

    Thank you! I also asked Donald to swap out wireless card and install Intel 9560 instead of Killer one. I have killer on my AW 17R4 and it sometimes drops connections and behaves badly.

    Isn't a 9560 a CVNI card? Different connection?

    I am not sure. But Donald assured me that it is possible for 35$.
