Summary: This is a fail notebook. I owned this for 9 months. Throughout my 9 months, the laptop will just shut down by itself and it would not turn on after several hours. Also, there seems to be a problem with their battery. It would not charge if I used it lower than 15%. Sometimes, it will just switch to battery mode as it did not recognize the charger. I will have to replug the charger several times till it recognizes it.
Summary: The PC had some initial issues. The first time I turned the power on, the keyboard did not work, all the keys were messed up, the keystroke did not respond with the correct letters. After talked to the tech support, I go the problem taken care of. Funny thing was, the tech support seems to know this problem, he was able to help me within one minute.
Summary: TLDR: I would buy it again. Lost a star for having a loud fan when the CPU and GPU are at 100% So I'm mostly going to focus on the build quality of the machine since you can look up the benchmarks of the various aspects of the machine on your own. The keyboard on the laptop is nice enough, doesn't really have much of a perceivable give to it when I'm mashing on the keys (in case you're the over enthusiastic gamer type). The light on the keyboard is a nice touch as well.
Summary: First, let me state that my review is biased as I was expecting an IPS display - the Gigabyte lists an "LCD" and an IPS screen on their website but no specifics on what exact model number has which. The unit I received most definitely did not have an IPS - I would guess it's a run of the mill, low quality WLED like everyone else is slapping into laptops today. The other drawback is display housing/bezel - it looks like an early 90's IBM notebook: butt fugly.
Summary: I am pretty satisfied with this gaming laptop. Not that heavy and long battery life. I mostly play League of Legends on this laptop and see low frame problem... My setting is medium and the frame is only 35-40 while my friend's laptop with lower or 'not better' specification maintains 60 fps.... Is there problem with my laptop? There is no problem with playing but...I feel somewhat wasted my money since this laptop maintains lower frame..
Summary: At first I purchased this laptop for college. Since I am taking programming I wanted the extra resolution and the 1080p IPS display on this baby is fantastic. The i7-4700hq with the gtx 765m allow me to take Far cry 3 to the max aside from AA which I leave off since it barely shows jagged edges and the game usually plays at 35-45 fps. I also play skyrim at high with a ton of texture mods and a high power enb and I bounce between 40-60 fps depending on the scene.
Summary: It is light, does not flex so much and it has a nice screen compared to other IPS monitors. Performance is on par with similar configurations from MSI, Alienware. Build not on par with Alienware.
Summary: Bin mit dem Kauf dieses Gerätes sehr zufrieden. + schlichtes, elegantes Design + sehr dünn + für die Kompaktheit und geringe dicke erstaunliche Leistung + sehr gutes Display, guter Kompromiss aus matte und glare, IPS sieht einfach gut aus - wird beim Spielen ziemlich warm und laut (also kein Anspruchsvolles Spielen in der Vorlesung :) - Außenoberfläche zieht Fingerabdrücke an Alles in allem ein Gamingnotebook mit starken Leistungsdaten, dem man es eben nicht ansieht.
