Top Customer Reviews
The display is really nice too, it's large enough so you can watch videos with friends and since it's anti-glare bright lights don't get in the way of gaming. Sunlight often comes through my window and creates a reflection on my laptop's screen so I have to turn up the brightness on it in order to see past the reflections made by the light. but on the Alienware I don't have to turn the brightness up as much as since no reflections appear on the screen. The speakers in this laptop are great too, I often wear headphones when I play games on PC because my headphones often produce better sound but the speakers in this laptop sound better than any pair of headphones I own!
Its keyboard is quite good, you can create up to 9 macro keys and keep up to 3 sets of them. You can switch between the sets on the fly which is really nice. The lighting on the keys can be changed from a few different colors which is cool since I like to customize. The macro keys get their own lighting section separate from the rest of the keyboard. The logo, sides, and track-pad of the laptop can also have their lighting changed to different colors too.
This laptop also has a unique and cool feature, the Tobii eye tracker. It tracks your eyes' movement around the screen as well as the body of the laptop. So if you look at an icon on the desktop the mouse pointer will jump to that spot which is really handy if you don't have a mouse to use with the laptop. You can also wake the laptop up from sleep just by looking at the Alienware logo with the eye tracker. It also makes the keyboard dim its lights while you aren't looking at them. When you look down at the keyboard the lights brighten on the section of the keyboard you are looking at. This feature is great for when you want to save power but still need the keyboard to be lit. My experience with using the eye tracker has been good and I enjoy using it, it did take me a little bit of time to get used to it though. You can't really turn your head too much while using it but it defiantly works if you don't fidget. The small demo that comes with the eye tracker is kinda neat and shows a sample of what you could do with it in games. I feel like this could help with aiming in games which I'm not too good at... You can also make multiple profiles to use with the eye tracker. I have two profiles for my tracker, one for when I wear glasses and another for when I don't. I have it this way since is the eye tracker functions differently if I use my main profile (the one without glasses) while wearing glasses, the tracker becomes less accurate. This is also recommended by Tobii to prevent issues with the tracker.
I am a little disappointed about the limited amount of ports the laptop has. It has 2 USB 3.0 ports, I use a mouse with the laptop if I'm at a desk which means I only have 1 other USB port to use, this is annoying if I have to swap photos and videos from my phone to a flash drive to make a backup as I have to keep dumping the photos and video to the SSD first then I have to unplug my phone and put in the flash drive to move them to the desired destination. I suppose this issue could be eliminated with a USB hub or simply unplugging the mouse and using the trackpad to move photos but I just think it would be better if it had more ports. The laptop also doesn't have and SD card slot or an optical drive. This is annoying since you won't be able to download software, music or games from a disc without an accessory, you can find optical drives that connect to computers via a USB (both 2.0 and 3.0) ports here on Amazon. You'll also need to buy an adapter for your SD cards if you want to use them with this laptop too.
The laptop has a great software tool for saving battery life. The software lets you limit specific things on the laptop to save power like CPU usage, Screen brightness etc. It also comes with a good diagnostic tool that checks for performance issues and hardware errors, the software also has direct links to the Dell support site if you need to update drivers or contact tech support. (Dell is the maker of Alienware)
The Killer Networking is really awesome! It comes with software that lets you assign priorities to various programs and games that use the internet. I prioritized my games to always be first and to always use maximum speed when I play them online. The priority scale ranges from 1 to 6. 1 makes things run faster and puts it at the top of the list when that program or game needs to send or receive data. 6 makes games or programs take a slower route. This is great since I can set background apps to a low priority like 5 or 4 and they won't slow down my Alienware's internet connection. You can even block certain programs and games from connecting to the internet altogether!
It doesn't come with too much bloatware, I just uninstalled the Facebook and Twitter apps that came pre-installed, I didn't see anything else I wanted to get rid of other than those two apps.
This laptop is also made to be used for a long time, there is space to install more RAM sticks to run bigger games or improve multitasking, an extra SSD if you need more fast storage (the laptop also has an HDD) and it can even connect to a graphics amplifier which is all awesome since you won't have to buy a better laptop if you don't want to. Instead, you can improve this one which is cheaper. I probably won't need to add new things to this laptop for a long time, if ever.
While laptops are made for travel I find this to be a little on the heavy side, so it might not be fun to carry around all day but it would be good to carry to a friends or to take it from class to class to do work on. I defiantly wouldn't carry it everywhere though, just places I know I could set it down and use it. I would also recommend getting a nice padded case so the laptop doesn't get damaged should you drop it. The battery life is also pretty good on it. Of course, the amount of time I can get out of the battery depends on what I do with it. I can browse the internet with it for a long time but the battery drains much quicker when I start to play games on it.
The laptop is also capable of handling VR but I don't have a VR headset so I can't see how well it performs with VR games sadly.
I ran into a few problems with my laptop at some point, mainly with the Tobii eye tracker and the Killer Control Center but the Tech Support team for Alienware was able to help me resolve the issue within an hour and only one representative needed to help me, no call transfers needed.
Overall I think this is a fantastic laptop, it plays games well, has little to no bloatware and with care, it will last a long time. My only complaints are the number of USB ports and that it's a little on the heavy side.
However, the noise is too high at full load.
And the temperature is very high. (Record 82)
One of the coolest things included on this laptop is the Tobii eye tracking software, which allows game to anticipate which direction I want to move, throw an object or fire a weapon. Also, certain elements within a game will highlight when I look at them.
It also comes with facial recognition software, which you can actually use to log into the computer. If you wear glasses I would recommend that you remove your glasses when setting up and using this software. I set it up with my glasses on and it seemed to have a harder time recognizing me (or at least it took longer) than when I went back and set it up without my glasses.
The battery has a 3 hour life while gaming. That isn't very long, but you are using a lot of power when playing games, so it is to be expected. The built in fan is pretty powerful (and loud), but I would still recommend getting an additional cooling pad. You might want to look for a cooling pad that also has USB ports as the laptop only comes with 3 USB port built in.
You can customize the keyboard to light up how you like, for example it can light up a certain way to alert you when you get an email.
The advantage of having a gaming laptop is its mobility. Just be aware that this laptop is very big and weighs almost 10 pounds. Finding a case or bag that it fits in has proven to be difficult.
For a gaming laptop, this is one of the best you will find on the market. It performs well and looks fantastic.
