Acer helios 300 has a (much) worse IPS panel, is not serviceable by yourself (to upgrade the storage you have to pay for the rack, the transport cost to service, the waiting days etc.). The Lenovo keyboard is also better and the sound is also probably better. In the end, they should come up about equal in price, but with Lenovo undeniable readiness.
In my country, Acer Helios i7 gtx1060 8gb price at 5500, dell 7577 i7 gtx 1050ti 8gb price at 5000, dell 7577 i7 gtx 1060max-Q 16gb price at 6699, Lenovo y720 price at 6000++.... So which to go for?
Ps. My country doesn't have the Dell 7577 i5 gtx 1060max-Q configuration....
Hi , i am planning to buy laoptop for gaming plus visual effect work. i am thinking between Asus GL553 and Lenove Y720. Kindly guide me which one is the better option. one thing should be kept in mind that i need good screen and i have to work for long hours. thankx in advance. i liked ur channel keep up the good work.
+Mathew Moniz you should get another unit to test, there's no reason why your Y720 is reaching 95 degrees or 5 away from the CPU's tj max. I just got one of these and I play besieged/BeamNG Drive on the highest settings for hours at a time and my unit wont go past 80 degrees.
I have had 2 Lenovo laptops from the Y Gaming Series now including the Y720. My previous Y410 lasted 4 years and is still running as a media laptop at my drumset (graphics card was too weak for today's games). Otherwise it is in perfect working order and excellent physical condition. The Y720 is very sturdy compared to most laptops under $2000. I have zero Malware on mine out of the box and it is very easy to uninstall any of Lenovo's preinstalled package if you want. It's quite minimal compared to other systems I've seen from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, etc.
Just want to give you tip guys. If some models (y720) have problems with temperatures it is because of poor thermal paste. Reapply thermal paste and u will solve problem. Also for those who expirienced bad peformance change Power settings from power saver to high peformance. Sry for bad eng, i hope it helped.
Just bought this computer with only one 256gb ssd, thinking I wouldn’t need more storage. Now I wanna add a second HDD, but find little information about compatible hard drives. Any1 knows what HDDs are compatible?
Ok im gonna ask a stupid question or noob question soon im planning to buy this coming december is this laptop has a possibility to encounter stuttering or freeze game? because alienware 17 R4 has stuttering issues my cousin has it so is this laptop is good for gaming and school stuff? thank you
I Have budget BTW
If your laptop is under 25 percent the performance is cut in half to save battery and you cant change it that setting its a locked default. Keep you nvidia drivers up to date with the Geforce experience and look around in the settings toggle the render quality to the highest which is 60+fps out of the box its set to the lowest locked 30 fps. Also keep in mind the 1060 isn't a 1080ti it can be stumped if you don't know what graphical settings your changing in the game, ambient occlusions/tessellation are very resource intensive as with resolution which should be kept at 1080p at all times. keeping that in mind you can play this at 70-80 fps no problem.
2:18 can translate that part? I am speak spanish (english good, but not much) and I am planing (I am not 100% sure) buy that notebook to play games, and I dont undertand too much that part, that's why I want a transcriptionI am planing but the y720-15ikb
Can anyone mention how horrible the fan sounds , because I own a Lenovo and and fan noise is horrible. Planning to buy this so I don't want to risk again buying a laptop which sounds like road construction inside my room.
Please confirm the fan sound?
I'm really confused, do you get 5-6 hours of battery life on the 4k model, how much does the fhd have then? Also other reviews mentioned that it has 4 hours on the fhd and also 4 on the 4k how does that work out, surely fhd should have more. Also would you recommend this at 1030 usd with only a 256 gb ssd and 8gb ram. Also others have reported much better thermals and less fan noise
Perfect!! That’s exactly what I needed to know. I have to buy 2 for avid teenage gamers so I don’t want to spend anymore than necessary. They are used to desktops but gaming laptops have come a long way and they’ll need portability for college soon. Thanks very much for fast reply!! :)
Great review as always, I bought this laptop based on your recommendation. But after just 20 days or so of using, I have this problem with the screen, if I close the lid while it's on and open it back again, the screen turns gray and becomes unusable so I have to restart my laptop again to use it. I updated the bios version, all the drivers but still nothing happened, am I the only one who has this problem guys? I would appreciate some help.
i had this issue after i updated the intel graphics driver, here is how to fix it:
Control panel > Hardware and sound > Device manager > Display adapter > double click on intel graphics card > go driver tab > press on "roll back driver" option.
your problem should be solved, good luck.
Can we make it clear that NOBODY wants the stupid red/black theme on laptops? I am a "young thugga kid" and even I think it just looks stupid. Really cuts down the options for laptops in the 1060 range.
its not nearly as bad as with MSI gaming laptops and acers helios which is literally half red and black the only red in the legion y720 is the track pad outline the legion logo and the speaker grills, not very much.
I cant fuking find the 4K version
Its so confusing! Some seller said its only has 1080p screen while u said it has 4K display while lenovo site said it can play 4K video but never tell the actual screen reso?
Some other reviewers said the screen only score 45% NTSC colour accuracy..and the link u provided to buy this laptop is the 1080p version
What the actual fuk?
Hi Matthew! Thank you for the review. I was planning on this until I read about the Dell 7577 a couple of days ago which also has GTX 1060 and Thunderbolt3 now. Would you be reviewing it anytime soon and also a comparison if possible? Thank you!
Krishnakumar Raghu The Dell 7577 has the gtx 1060 max q which is a weaker version of a gtx 1060 found in this model. The main purpose of the max q is to save power. It prefers saving power over performance.
keep up thewool work matthew i just noticed you are working on a new room and presnt your content on it it looks great its bright and cool and your content is enjoyable and informative to watch what are your thoughts about new google pixel?
I've been looking at gaming laptops for work (as well as play), doing CAD and 3d Modeling. Would you suggest 4k monitor in this circumstance. I've been leaning towards the Dell 7567 w/ i7, 16gb ram, 512 SSD and 4k Monitor.
Hi Matt,I really enjoy your channel!I am planning to buy either the Acer preditor Helios 300 or the Lenovo Y720. The Acer is currently $1049 and the Lenovo $1055. Is there any major deciding factor between the two? They are both almost identical in price, but are they identical in stats at this price point? I'd love to see a comparison video between the two. Or maybe just a verdict from you and a reason why. Regards Mitch.
After having a 4k screen laptop for the last year and a half - can't see myself ever going back. Sure scaling is a bit off in Windows 10, but it's a game changer when editing in Premiere or creating content in After Effects, PS, etc...this is especially huge when on the road (or when I want to edit on the road...or couch).
Also, in addition - close friend has the previous years Y-series, and it's been a mess. Plastic breaking, keyboard issues. Does run well though. Sounds like they addressed the keyboard (mushy) issues and the build issues in this iteration. Great review though Matt!
