There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Build quality: The build quality on this laptop is fantastic, all aluminum so it feels really premium. It also has a really nice design in my opinion. Really muted which I happen to like. My only concern is the hinge. The hinge just doesn't seem tight enough? It causes the display to shake sometimes but never when i'm typing so that's good. It's also a one hand open. Laptop is pretty light as well but the power brick, being 230watts is pretty big.
Display: Wow, the display is really great here. The 4K OLED panel is really bright and really vibrant. It doesn't get past 500nits but it was a sacrifice gigabyte had to make to get good deltaE values. Contrast is amazing, color gamut is really good on here. Only down side is that it's 60hz. Hope to see high refresh oled screens on laptops sometime soon. I can see banding sometimes but I rarely notice it.
Performance: The 1660ti along with the i7-9750h is a pretty good spot for me. Getting gaming out of the way, I usually get around 120fps in Apex Legends, 100FPS in Resident Evil 2, 150fps in Overwatch & 90FPS in Soul Calibur. All games were in high settings, with the exception of overwatch being at epic settings and all games were ran at 1080p. I can't push many games at 4k. In terms of Video Editing and Rendering in Unity & Blender, the 1660ti also has studio drivers on the AERO and render times have been pretty good as well as editing video has been pretty smooth, though I don't do video editing often.
Thermals: Thermals on my unit weren't great... but they weren't all that bad. I've never experienced any thermal throttling. GPU temps are usually around 75c-84c under load and CPU temps are higher at around 90-92c. You can drop the temps by about 3-5c by enabling max fans, but they do get REALLY loud at that point.
Keyboard & Trackpad: I love the keyboard on the AERO. The backlighting is plenty customizable and bright. The keys have a pretty nice travel distance so it feels pretty good to type on. The trackpad is glass so it's really smooth, and it has windows precision drivers so gestures and such work like a breeze. It also has a fingerprint scanner, which is quite fast and works fine for me.
Software: The laptop comes with no bloatware except for GIGABYTE Fusion & the AI software, which I guess aren't bloatware because they're pretty useful for controlling fans, keyboard lighting, etc.. Almost all my drivers were out of date but hey, control center makes it super easy to update drivers and in about 30m, all my drivers were updated. I personally like and have no problems with control center but the AI software still seems gimmicky.
Fan noise: Fans do get super loud under load but otherwise, I hardly hear them. As states above, max fans do sound like a jet engine. You also have full customization over the fans using gigabyte fusion.
Battery Life: Battery life for me while typing docs, browsing the web, 40% brightness and keyboard backlight on was about 4-5 hours for me. Haven't tested it while gaming though.
Camera: The camera is the worst part about this laptop for me. Bad quality, bad position. Rarely use it though so I don't care much. They have a privacy cover for it though so for people concerned about privacy, no tape required.
I'll continue to update this review as the months go along using the AERO, but so far, really happy customer.
Some other things:
-Laptop has a second m2 slot for SATA&NVME SSDs, gigabyte also includes extra thermal pads for any secondary ssd you might add. The Stock SSD is really fast too.
As of November 17, 2020, I populated my second m2 slot with a Sabrent Rocket 1tb nvme SSD, and have no issues with it on the laptop. Speeds are really fast too at around 2000mb/s r/3000mb/s w.
-I've seen alot of complaints with the wifi card on the AERO, but wifi experience on my model has been excellent. No problems w/ download & upload speeds over WiFi on my model and no drop outs.
It's been one month w/ the Aero 15 now, no issues so far. Still love this laptop.
My GPU fan started making a loud grinding noise after about 3 months of owning the laptop. I'm not sure what caused this, but my guess is that the bearing went out. A couple months following this, the fan completely gave out and stopped spinning completely. I decided to get a replacement fan myself on AliExpress and replace the fan. Replacing the fan was pretty easy and while I was at it, I also re-pasted my CPU and GPU with Artic MX-4 thermal paste. Following the replacement and re-paste, my fans are much quieter now and thermals are much better than they were before. I'm able to maintain 3.8ghz on all cores during full CPU load. I'm still dropping my rating by 2 stars as I am disappointed that the fan gave out in such a short time. Looking at reddit for the experience that other people had with this laptop, it seems to be a pretty big issue with this model. I'm not sure if this holds true for the 2020 model, but I can only hope it's fixed. Other than this, I have had no more issues with this laptop and everything has still been fine, especially performance now following the re-paste. The fan model for anyone curious is: PLB0701S12HH. My opinion still stands, I still think this is a great laptop, but I hope gigabyte does fix the issue with the fans. If you look on reddit, people have guides on how to fix the fans without buying a replacement.
** For the look, for me, it's very good, as I need to use the device for business, so it does not look like other gaming machines with red colors and logos that make your device out of place if you're in a meeting or so.
** For the build quality, it's my first high-end laptop I've used, since for me I think it's also very good.
** The screen is impressive for me, and I can tell that's the best screen I've ever used.
Let's split this into two parts:
- The first time I'm logged into Windows, it was bulky and full of garbage and has a bad performance, then after doing a clean install it now works like charm.
Since I use Linux for work and it's the main OS I'm using on the PC and the laptop for my work, after I've installed Linux all the problems started:
- The heating issue that the device reaches 80 C easily and the fans still run slow because you can't control the fans from Linux.
- You also can't control Fans from BIOS even it's UEFI, so still no solution for this issue.
- Contacted Gigabyte and this is another big problem to contact Gigabyte and hardly after a month I could reach them then they replied we don't support Linux and The solution they have is to work on Windows!!!
- Now I can't return the device as they responded very late, and also I get this device in order to work on it mainly and besides work, I play some games, But they want me to only play games!!!
- If you need a device with good customer support--> STAY AWAY FROM GIGABYTE.
- If you plan to use Linux mainly on this device --> STAY AWAY FROM GIGABYTE.
- If you don't care about support or Linux and need a good device in terms of built quality, perfect screen and will use windows as your main OS then you may try (I'm not responsible for this advice).
==> For me, it's the FIRST and LAST laptop and the LAST product I'll use from GIGABYTE as their support is the worst support I've ever dealt with, hence support and after-sales service is essential for me.
Oled display is gorgeous with absolutely no defects.
1660Ti runs all my games externally at 1440p flawlessly (Witcher 3 with "Hairworks" off and Sekiro stable at 60fps on Ultra)
1660Ti is compatible with Nvidia Studio, so my engineering software renders models as if using professional GPU
5+ hours of realistic battery life on a gaming laptop with 4k display
Build Quality is excellent. No flex picking the notebook up from the corner with the lid open.
Installing second M.2 2280 SSD and RAM upgrade was a 10 minute job tops.
Fans are very loud while gaming or working. If you want thin, powerful, and stable, then you're going to have to live with loud.
Had to undervolt the CPU with Intel XTU software to prevent thermal throttling.
Had to undervolt/overclock the GPU in order to maintain stable temps (65-70C) while gaming.
Notebookcheck rates the FHD version of this laptop for 90 minutes longer battery life on their realistic usage benchmark.
1660Ti not powerful enough to run AAA games in 4k native resolution.
Top reviews from other countries
The WiFi has been weak and been dropping on me everyday when I got it, so I'm not surprised the network adapter is garbage and the worst quality they could ever put into a $2,500 gaming laptop. I have to fill out the warranty form and ship it back to the company now, and wait another 3 months before they send me a new one.
DON'T BUY THIS COMPUTER.
GIGABYTE PUT IN A BETTER NETWORK ADAPTER!!! I don't understand why such a garbage network adapter was put into this laptop.
So far my system has run great, with exception to the spotty and low bandwidth wifi card, and of course the thermal throttling while gaming, or even just streaming content on YouTube. Here is what I've done to knock down my temps from mid 90's Celsius, to about high 70's Celcius.
- Create your own custom fan profile within the Gigabyte Control Centre software. (Mine is steeper than the pre-programmed 'Gaming' profile, which YES, is a bit louder)
- Install and configure Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, and undervolt your CPU. (My i7-9750H is undervolted 0.155V; which seems counterintuitive but you will still have a stable system with all of the same clocks)
- Install and configure ThrottleStop. Within the FIVR section, set your core multipliers to something like 35, making a 3.5GHz OC. (The 9750H max 4.5GHz boost clock is obviously GREAT, but not if you want to keep this thin unit cool)
Both CPU & GPU should remain under high 70's, even under heavy game sessions. (Tested in Fallout 76 and Star Citizen for hours)
4.5 stars for the issues below. Been having it for about 2 weeks. Had a stick pixel initially. After some usage, it’s still there but it sorts itself out within 30 seconds now. No issues. Beautiful screen and colours. May be a little hot to touch on the battery side. But still working around 50-60 degree celsius on everyday usage. Gaming on steam may push it to the 70s. Some issues with the sound driver, makes the sound one side louder than the other (it happens on all my earphones and speakers, so most likely it isn’t speaker hardware issue). Nonetheless, happy with my purchase!
All in all pretty goooooood
