Great for what I needed 1/2/2020 3:46:20 PM

Pros: -Useful for streaming even in 2019/2020 it works great
- Easy to upgrade and can easily put a LOT more storage
- Lots of ports just as many as I would ever need and the USB-C is a + for sure
- Lots of customization= longevity (but if you want even more go with it's newer version)
- Fantastic Display
- Keyboard is great.. (but I never use it as it's docked most of the time, Refer to cons:)

Cons: - Not having thunderbolt 3 support for the Thunderbolt 3 (Not a huge deal for my work-use)
- A little to gaudy to actually take outside.. stays docked most of the time, not even really the size it's more the look that sets me back from actually taking it places, so ya know why get a laptop.

Overall Review: Great for streaming and gaming and its upgradability still makes it a worthwhile buy, after replacing the thermal paste and upgrading the internal storage from 256GB to 2TB of SSD and PCIE drives and 24 GB of ram it is far superior to any computer I have owned for a few years now even being a laptop. Cooling isn't amazing but it gets the job done and as someone who frequently uses a space heater it keeps itself performing great even under a good amount of heat.

Good so far. 12/10/2019 10:41:08 AM

Pros: Very fast. Your getting pretty much what you expect.
-simple to set up and use
-runs most games at decent graphics settings

Cons: -Does not come with much storage space so has to be expanded if planning on downloading a lot of applications
-RGB is very simple only red light is available. kinda dim
-battery dies after limited use so you have to make sure that you are near a power source when expecting to use for extended amounts of time.

Overall Review: -would recommend to most people that dont need an abundance of power.
-Great price would spend a lot more for a computer like this at a store

Solid Performance, needs an HDD and runs hot, though 8/17/2019 11:29:07 AM

Pros: Performs solidly in all the games I throw at it
Really nice price for an i7 8750H and a GTX 1060

Cons: Runs Pretty hot
Needs storage upgrades badly

Overall Review: This laptop performs great, despite the high temps it reaches it never crashes or turns off on its own.
There was nothing wrong with it despite it being a refurb, only one small on the palm rest next to the touch pad.

No Battery 8/4/2019 8:47:54 AM

Cons: It is useless as a laptop as it does not work unless plugged in.

Overall Review: Be very careful if you buy this device. Mine came either without a battery or with an extremely bad one as it will not turn on unless plugged in. I'm now returning it.

Best gaming laptop in this price range 7/3/2019 8:01:36 PM

Pros: Great hardware to price ratio
Easily upgradable, 144hz, IPS Panel
Not overly bulky for a 'gaming' laptop

Cons: Runs hot, but there's plenty of resolutions to deal with that just have to look.
Design is outdated
Battery life is poor, but so are most 'gaming' laptops

Overall Review: Great buy in my opinion, hard to beat these specs for this money, bought the squaretrade warranty because it's a refurb but take care of your electronics and they'll last you.

Video Editing Cable 6/29/2019 1:20:23 PM

Pros: Powerful CPU and GPU

Cons: Runs slightly hot on the back side (rotary fan vent).

Overall Review: This unit will edit video without difficulty. Obviously a more powerful GPU or more cores would speed up the process more but this works great for on the fly basic editing needs.

A good purchase 6/20/2019 11:29:28 AM

Pros: The frames of the display are great
the colors are deep and rich
the ability of the 1060 reaches if not exceeds my expectations
The 16g of ram helps a lot
Overall a fantastic machine.

Cons: The size of the memory is small, although it being an SSD makes up for it
The machine does throttle sometimes on really graphic intensive games
The heat can be crazy as well (I would recommend a cooling fan)
The fans can get a bit loud but with headphones on you won't notice it

Overall Review: This was my first gaming pc and I am not bothered in any means by my purchase, even after six months.

Overheats 1/4/2019 7:06:43 PM

Pros: Fast good gaming laptop for the money

Cons: It overheats Ike in overwatch 85 celsius give or take most 8th gen i7 laptops do overheat. my Alienware r4 with a 1070 heated up to100 c that’s hot enough to boil water they won’t last as long as a 7gen I7. If it’s a little old or referbished you want to make sure they or you put in new thermal paste on the cpu/gpu and get a Klemperer cool + it will make your laptop run better and last longer it’s not loud but the laptop is a bit noisy not a LOT but a bit. Cooling pads I dont see how they work the laptop has vents on the bottom that push out the air a cooling pad under would yah the air back in or circulate it might help but something like a Klemperer cooler + would be better it’s all about the Rpms on the coolers so if you find something with more rpms get it. Lowering the voltage to the cpu helps but do research on that don’t know for every cpu. Acer is better then Alienware and dell a (acer a Asus or the best MSI) those 3 are the best with the heating issues a few month have past so maybe others caught on. And the metal cases on laptops heats up more then plastic

Overall Review: It’s a good gaming laptop and acer is slowly becoming a top brand name
