3 out of 5 eggsDecent product

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 (59426157) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: The laptop is lightweight and has a good battery life.The GTX 860 GPU places most of the recent titles on high settings with little to no lag.The 16 GB RAM helps in gaming and software development if you are planning to use the laptop to run some of the resource hungry IDEs.

Cons: I encountered hard drive failure on the 3rd day with this error message.

EFI Network 0 for IPv4
EFI Network 0 for IPv6

Seems like a pretty common issue with some of the lenovo laptop models , contacted the customer support and they asked me to sent the laptop and it seems that for some odd reason they do not have a replacement hard drive so my laptop is stuck at their service depot for almost 20 days , hope the problem does not reoccur after I get the laptop back.

Other Thoughts: It is better to use a cooling pad in addition to air conditioning while gaming , it will help in keeping the overall temperature down.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat performance, fan issues

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 (59426157) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: - Decent frame rate for games (referring to games like Battlefield or Far Cry 3, able to put out at least 60FPS average if the graphics are toned down to medium - medium/low)
- Decent battery life (get about 5 to 6 hours running just openoffice without wifi enabled)
- Red backlit keyboard (everyone knows having red LEDs makes a computer run faster(not really, but it looks nice))
- Great speakers (better audio than the speakers from my TV, nice and crisp)

Cons: - TN Panels (as expected, bad viewing angles and colour reproduction, decent enough for everyday use and gaming though)
- Locked BIOs (What? You wanted to upgrade your laptop's hardware without consulting Lenovo's list of approved manufacturers? HAH, YOU HAVE NO POWER HERE)
- Fan chirp (you may or may not have this issue, currently a huge thread at Lenovo's forums regarding this issue, fan constantly chirps/pulses, goes away if it's under heavy load (gaming), it can drive you insane...CHIRP...CHIRP....CHIRP)
- Bloatware (plenty of bloatware preinstalled, you may have to spend an hour or two uninstalling them without accidentally uninstalling a driver)

Other Thoughts: TN panel isn't a big deal if you're not planning to use this for graphic design. I have no issues with it currently (though viewing angles make it difficult for spectators)
You may or may not have the fan chirp issue as stated previously, it's a serious annoyance if you do end up with a unit with the issue. Some users managed to get it fixed by returning it to Lenovo and getting the fan replaced while others are waiting for a possible BIOs update.

3 out of 5 eggsWord of caution!

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 (59426157) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Price; Brand; Specs

Cons: Screen quality; Poor color spectrum

Other Thoughts: So I bought this model and theres a big problem with it In general a great laptop, but the SSD cache makes it really annoying to actually game on it. Few others and I noted a "screen lag" on this specific laptop. Basically, the screen stays frozen for 2-3 secs on a particular frame. After extensive research and playing around with the settings of the graphics card, antivirus programs, etc.... it basically came down to the hardware itself that was causing the problem.
I eventually returned that model and bought the 512gb SSD version like others did, and it works beautifully well.

1 out of 5 eggsFrequent Freezes

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 (59426157) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Cheap!

Cons: Games are practically unplayable because this laptop freezes for a few seconds every so often. The internet says it is due to the HDD.

4 out of 5 eggsexcellent for the price

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 (59426157) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: -nice design, clean lines nice modern look
- excellent hardware the GPU runs everything ive thrown at it thus far like a champ all high to very high settings
- backlit keyboard is nice for typing, or gaming in the dark

Cons: - the main drawback ive found with this is the viewing angle it is HORRENDOUS. you have to be sitting just right to get the full beauty of this screen and is difficult at times

- the bloatware was just ridiculous. this thing comes overloaded with tons and tons of software that you may or may not use. takes awhile to get rid of it all

- windows 8 is.. well designed around touch functions makes it a bit of a pain with non touch laptops, i do have a bias for win 7 i wouldve prefered it but win 8 has its perks here and there.

- colors seem a bit washed out someimes, although havent
noticed the faded yellow as others have said

Other Thoughts: The hardware and design are what sold this one for me, so far i love this machine, its hardware is great Nvidia has great support software for optimization of your machine and games for best results. the machine has a great look to it the angles on the lid and back give it nice sharp lines (not physically sharp, aesthetically sharp, gives nice industrial feel). the HDMI out on the side makes adding a second screen or hooking up to a tv quick and easy. it does get a bit hot while running games but it isnt excessive a laptop fan stand does wonders, you can get one just about anywhere. Games ive run thus far : Titanfall, Borderlands 2, Metro Redux, Fallout 3, all on high settings with little to no issues so far. The bloatware, while annoying, isnt all completely useless. Overall very happy with purchase, wish the screen was a bit better it does have sizing issues with some programs thats really my only complaint, but overall very satisfied with the results

5 out of 5 eggsPretty amazing so far

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 (59426157) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Well this is my first gaming laptop ive had, and it far exceeds all my expections. It runs pretty much every game including CoD:AW at easily 60 fps with no issues on high/ultra. Quick boot up, after removing all the excess Crapps off it runs even better. Bright screen although i have seen a little wash out but not too big of an issue.

Cons: The only thing i could think of that would be bad about it is that is does get a little bit warm once you actually let it run a game. Havent had any shut downs for overheating yet but otherwise nothing really i see as a con.

Other Thoughts: For the price i would say go for it. I mean you could spend a little bit more and possibly find a better one. For this price though you cant really beat the deal.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing desktop replacement

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 (59426157) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Price for what you get in hardware. Sturdy build. Good looks. High performance. The JBL speakers actually aren't too bad for being laptop speakers.

This does run Skyrim on MAXED graphics settings.....(ofc I did a complete fresh reinstall of my OS off the bat to remove all bloatware and what not, then reinstalled all drivers manually)

It runs incredibly well!

Cons: There IS some flex in the keyboard but as long as you're not a key pounder, it's not an issue in the slightest.

The screen is finicky at angles, but I'm not planning to play from a side view anyway....

Neither of these are enough to remove an egg.....

Lenovo has built a solid top performer here.

Oh, it does eat battery life like crazy, but then, it's a top performer, what do you expect?

Other Thoughts: If you're on the fence about this one, don't be. Just buy it. It's worth it. You won't find another currently on the market to match for it's pricetag!

It is truly a desktop replacement - NOT a "laptop"

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing for the price!!!!!

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 (59426157) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: umm...everything?
The complete system is all good! 16GB ram...dedicated Nvidia...illuminated keys....hybrid drive....

Cons: Wasn't cheaper? The keys do have some flex but it's not that bad. I don't pound on my keyboard so shouldnt be an issue

Other Thoughts: Though it is not of lenovo's fault I do not believe, I have reinstalled Windows from scratch. I had attemepted to run Windows 10 tp out of the box and ran into several unlikely issues...
I have put 8.1 back on and in doing so, eliminated bloatware. Not all bad...
The system is running right now better than I had seen it run on Youtube. My Skyrim (with mods) runs very well on maxed out graphics settings! ;)
Just try not to punch through the screen when / if you run into issues on selecting between the Intel HD graphics and the Nvidia card to run games.
I ran into this issue initially and had read of others having it as well. Since the clean reinstall of windows and all the drivers however, it has gone and NO conflicts remain.
This thing ROCKS!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Laptop

This review is from: Lenovo Y50 (59426157) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: This laptop is almost equivalent to my desktop, and for the price I got it for it is amazing.
i7
16gb ram
500gb SSD
IPS Display - great viewing angles
No Noise, or not noticeable
Stays nice and cool, never had heat issues
The 860m, plays everything fantastically on medium - high settings. Tends to get frames drop if put on Ultra so far in games like Archeage.

Overall it performs like I expect it too. It works well for my school laptop, and for gaming on the go, and I was never expecting amazing graphics, but this laptop goes above and beyond my expectations. I have a short 4 second boot time, and everything runs smooth.

Cons: The keyboard is a little flimsy for typing, but not worth knocking off an egg because it is kind of expected with a laptop.
Battery Life, when in high performance mode is less than 40 minutes to 1 hour. Which is expected in a laptop, but who games off charge and expects a long battery?
Off charge, and using just for internet browsing or school work I get 3 to 4 hours of use on a full charge before having to charge it. which is expected for a gaming laptop.
Again, the battery life being short is expected and not worth knocking off an egg.

Other Thoughts: I didn't order this laptop from newegg, The place I ordered it from came default with an IPS display, so I never had to deal with the TN display viewing angles.

I did swap out the 1tb hybrid drive with a 500gb Samsung SSD, which made this laptop even better!
