  • Good laptop
    Reviewed by Simon - September 19, 2021

    Pros: - Fast - Long battery life for a gaming laptop. - 144 HZ Display makes everything very smooth. - The speakers are descent. - Compact - Good build quality Cons: - The fans are loud but that normal for a gaming laptop. - There is a high pitched sound when the laptop is in silent mode. It’s goes away when you turn up the brightness of the backlit keyboard. Overall a good laptop if you don’t mind loud noises.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Great, but also terrible
    Reviewed by atypicalgamer - September 22, 2021

    sadly, this laptop is no where near as good as expected. i'll list the pros and cons. Pros: - good battery life - great performance for size. seriously, its a beast. - good speakers - microphone pretty decent considering.. if compared to mac, its bad - on battery mode, its locked at 30fps for games, but its not bad, unless you are playing CS:GO or something CONS: - this is a gaming laptop and i cannot game properly with this terrible ghosting screen. What this means is when you swipe quickly left and right in shooting games, it is blurry. despite it is a nice smooth 144hz panel, - no USB ports on left side. i have a wireless gaming mouse, and headset. can't use headset without a USB hub due to both USB ports are on right side. - Screen bezel is glued on, and you can already see part of that glue stripping off sadly. No idea how long this glue will stay on considering the fans point to the bezels, making it very hot - Backlight bleeding on 2 parts of my screen. dark screen means white spots. I love my dark mode stuff, and its annoying. Also, i have wallpaper engine as well as rainmeter, and... just ruins it. - the screen was warped from day 1. despite having nice rubber edge on screen that prevents dust entering when closed, you always open up to this having dust and debris in it after taking out of bag. - just doing basic tasks whines up the fans like downloading games, or installing apps. This might be able to control though bios changes and other changes, but for out of the box settings, its too aggressive, it doesnt even just slightly get louder. its like 2 settings, loud or quiet. its kinda sad for small laptop like this. - on battery mode, games are stuck at 30fps. I dont know how to change it yet, but its annoying as i can't really play games on battery if it is stuck to 30 fps. i get it wants to save battery, but its absolutely a pain when i can't play games like counter strike. - no webcam? i dont care, but i thought i should mention this. REMARKS: If i was taking this laptop to school, its sort of a no brainer. This would be a great laptop. But i'm more like a mobile adult who also is a casual gamer, as well as want to keep things light. After suffering for years with my giant MSI GT660, i really wanted something slimmer. Guess i'll jsut have to keep looking.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Excellent laptop for its price
    Reviewed by Amine - September 23, 2021

    This laptop is pretty fast, really impressed by the AMD chip inside. It runs loud when playing games which is normal, but to consider.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
