  MSI (17.3" Laptop With Core i7)
  Mint 18.x
  Works perfectly
What works:

Everything is working in KDE, Mate, Cinnamon and Xfce desktop environments.

What doesn't work:

Of course software buttons in panel don't work (air plain mode, etc) but BIOS ones and action keys work.

What was done to make it work:

Install Nvidia cuasi.privative drivers (newer as possible from graphics driver ppa), Bumblebee and bbswitch from its ppa (primus/optimus w/o logout) and follow this link to make color backligth keyboad working

Don't remember (it was two years ago) if need to install dmraid because of RAID0 (Super Raid II controller with two mSSD) but it works.
