Worked great for about 8 months, then completely broke 5/15/2018 1:04:46 PM

Pros: - Great with gaming
- Good design
- Fast

Cons: - Bulky
- Played for about 8 months, then kept crashing randomly with the error message "video read error :(" Would only be on for about 5 minutes between each crash. Sent in for repair through this horrible customer service branch in Taiwan and came back in worse shape than when I sent it in.
- Trackpad is garbage
- Sound isn't the greatest
- Just be warned if you get this and there are any issues at all you will receive virtually no assistance. Not a real "warranty"

OK until the dreaded Click of Death 2/22/2017 2:52:16 PM

Pros: Overall I've been happy with this machine. It's fast, though not quite as fast as I'd hoped, and generally has performed to expectations.

Cons: Less than 2 years old, and the HDD is shot. It woke me up the other night sounding like an old 70's box truck blinker. Yay. I spend 90% of my computing time on the desktop, so this has had very light use. Disappointing.

Overall Review: I can't even get past Gigabyte's front door to try and get warranty service. I have enjoyed their products for the most part, but the inability to even log in to their support system has me rethinking future purchases.

Inconsistent gaming performance. 12/3/2016 11:08:02 AM

Pros: -Price for the hardware
-Keyboard is spaced out well and has comfortable travel.
-Visual design is quite nice without being to attention grabbing.

Cons: -The biggest problem is that as a gaming laptop, when I am gaming every 5 to 10 minutes or so the laptop will behave as though I have unplugged it for 2 or 3 seconds which results in slow downs and screen dimming. These symptoms of slowdown last for about 5 seconds total and are as severe as starting out at a constant 60 fps and drop to anywhere from 14 to 25, this severely hurts the playing experience.

Overall Review: I want to love this laptop, but I cannot seem to find a solution for the problem, if anyone could help me out please let me know, whether it be reformatting and installing windows 10 without the gigabyte software on it, or a different power adapter. I just want to use the 970m GPU like I know it can be used.

Not Worth the Price 10/16/2016 4:24:30 PM

Pros: Runs quickly and smoothly. Clear screen. Not too heavy. Sturdy. Quiet (because the fan never comes on). Perfect document/browser machine.

Cons: Doing anything that requires the use of the 970 video card (rather than the Intel onboard) is impossible. For this to be a gaming machine, trying to game is like trying to play Fallout 4 on the onboard video (and I'm most certainly not). The video lags a great deal - I'm lucky to get more then 15 or 20 FPS in any game - and the screen dims constantly. It's impossible to game. The fans never run, so it's like the video is overheating right away, sometimes before the game has even gotten out of the intro screens. There is no keyboard command to turn on the fans, so there's no way to make them run and keep the video working correctly.

Overall Review: It is not worth $1200. I basically have a brick. I can browse the internet or use Word, but this is a gaming machine, and I can't game.
Smart Manager does not work, not in any iteration, so there's no fan control.
I've had it for year and it messed up within a couple of months. I'm tired of it, but I can't afford to replace it. It's honestly just a big, hot, piece of junk.

Piece of garbage throttling 5/19/2016 11:52:54 AM

Comments: Bought this last July while looking for a new place to stay so wanted a portable option, not expecting Gigabyte to offer any kind of return/swap at this point. I upgraded my desktop quite soon after moving into a new place so now the laptop just sits in a drawer as a $1300 reminder of "you get what you pay for". Should have splurged on a better brand and returned the product sooner.

Such garbage

Could not be more disappointed with this laptop 4/18/2016 6:18:01 PM

Pros: -Cool looking
-Specs

Cons: -Driver Issues
-Terrible Support
-Constant GPU Crashes

Overall Review: I would like to start off and say that I bought this computer for gaming, and that then it works, the specs are impressive. The problem is, it almost never works. I have had constant trouble with the graphics card and been getting driver errors non stop. I have tried so many different sets of drivers but no luck. It randomly decides to work sometimes, and other times it won't even boot the OS. I have been bricked from doing something as simple as download new drivers. I've had this computer for months and feel like I've never been able to use it.

The worst thing that happened was that after weeks of trying to fix it myself, I gave up and sent it to Gigabyte. They charged me for shipping and fixed nothing. I am not even sure what they did to be honest. All in all, do not buy ANY laptops from Gigabyte, such a disappointing experience.
