60hz or 120hz ?
lorefriendlygamer (1 month ago)
Matthew Moniz Thanks. Are similar priced notebooks with 120hz available? is 120hz more important if you actually plan to play on 120 fps?

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....

why there's no sound demonstration ?
Matthew Moniz (1 month ago)
Because showing sound on a video is pointless. It won't sound anything like the real thing. Everyone's speakers, headphones are all different

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.

BalthazarTheGreat (2 months ago)
+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.
Haitam Nari (3 months ago)
Should i buy the y720 with 8gb/i7/1060 for 1300euro's or the y520 16gb/i7/1060max Q for 1400euro's I want to game on high settings with a good screen and low temperatures

Lenovo is good if you want a laptop with built in malware that will physically fall apart after a couple of months.
idn (17 days ago)
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.

how are you getting 70-75 fps on high on bf1??? iv been owning this laptop for 3 months now, 35-42 fps on low quality
Areo Banks (24 days ago)
Maybe you were playing at 4k?
PantiesGoneWild (2 months ago)
BalthazarTheGreat well its been like that since the first week even on full or more than 50% its the same
BalthazarTheGreat (2 months ago)
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.
Jure Matković (4 months ago)
PantiesGoneWild thats weird. With 1060m 6gb, u should get 3x more fps.

FearLess (6 months ago)
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
Theresa Curnow (6 months ago)
I’m wondering how much performance would suffer gaming going with the 8GB version? All reviews seem to be for 16GB.

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!! :)
Matthew Moniz (6 months ago)
Very little ! If it's for gaming you won't notice much of a difference. However, if you're someone with a lot of tabs open and doing photoshop work, you'll want 16.

Mohammad Natsheh (6 months ago)
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.
Mohammad Natsheh (6 months ago)
Matthew Moniz thank you for your reply Matthew, I solved it by rolling back the display driver.

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.
BalthazarTheGreat (2 months ago)
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.

Gabe Merritt Yeah. The marketing teams are probably just talking to the kids who wear flame shirts and sunglasses inside lol. Just simple color themes would be a great variety.

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 (5 months ago)
I decided to get dell 7577. It's got a better build and also in my location, i didn't get the RGB lighting with Legion Y720. It was too much red for me.
Sai Nivedh Vallala (5 months ago)
Which one did u buy?
Krishnakumar Raghu (6 months ago)
Sahil Chandhok Sure. But it's a lot .7 kg lighter. That's the reason I'm thinking about it.
Sahil Chandhok (6 months ago)
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.

Paul Wolfer (7 months ago)
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.
Turdbo Mitch (7 months ago)
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.
Matthew Moniz (7 months ago)
It depends if you need a more colour accurate display than the Lenovo Y720 makes more sense since you can buy it in 4k. If you don't the helios 300 is just as good and cheaper

A.D.Dudes (7 months ago)
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!
Matthew Moniz (7 months ago)
