    I might be a future owner of either the GT72VR or the GT62VR.
    I have a questions to the owners regarding the 17 inch variant.
    1- Is it true the screen suffers from visible backlight bleeding?
    2- I've also read in the French forum how many owners experienced screen issues when it runs at 75Hz. Some members solved it by overclocking the panel to 100Hz. Can the panel in this laptop withstand 100Hz during daily use and gaming? I'm worried it is not the case, and then I must underclock the screen to 60Hz-ish, and the screen problems might be back.
    I really want to hear the owners here so I can make sure my unit does not have a faulty screen once I own one.

    Ah, that sucks. Does it actually annoy you or is it barely visible?
    And what about screen issues? Have you encountered color banding? https://forum-fr.msi.com/index.php?topic=7834.0

    I have 0 issues with the screen, because the bleed is only visible on black screen. The only moment when its noticeable is when turning on the laptop and MSI logo appears.

    So Xotic PC has a MSI GT72VR DOMINATOR PRO-257, advertised as having the 120Hz display. It's $1,999 just like the other 1070 SKU.

    I don't know if it has G-Sync though.

    You're welcome.

    GT72VR is the 17.3" variant. I'm not sure, but mine seems fine regarding backlight bleeding. No screen issues with mine run at 75hz with gsync on. I overclocked screen to 100hz, doesn't go further then that, what i noticed so far is that for example in an open window i see some vertical lines in the title bar of the window. I dont have it currently set to 100hz, but will perhaps test how it works out for a day/gaming session. I'm using dsr set to 2560x1440 at 75hz gsync on currently.
