With the SSD drive, it boots up like an iPad. For all these years I would complain about Windows being slow. But now see it was the hardware. Next, it is so light. I love just carrying it from my desk to a meeting to take notes or minutes.
Light weight and super fast and thin. I only got the 8 GB RAM and 256 GB drive. Would have liked the 16 GB RAM and bigger drive but wanted to keep the price down. you can go crazy with add ons. After all I have 5 other PC's at home already (3 Apple & 2 Windows).
Now for the semi bad part. I got the LG Gram laptop all set up with Office, Outlook, OneDrive, my special software loaded etc.. and noticed some web pages were slow to down load. Checked my speed and it was bad. I got .6 mbps download and 12 mbps upload. Yes, that is correct the download was poor. barely moving. I checked all drivers were up to date. I rebooted my modem, router, changed networks, compared with my other PC's and they all were fine. 175 to 280 mpbs download. All signs to me was the hardware was defective. I had only had the new laptop for 2 days. I was ready to return it. !!!
A friend came over, I complained to him. He suggested it was a driver problem. I showed him all drivers were up to date. Then he noticed the wifi adapter was made by Intel (wifi 9560) BUT the driver was from Microsoft. He said lets see if Intel has a driver. Sure enough they did. we installed it and the problem was fixed.
Wow, I was so relieved. I really did not want to send it back. I loved it. Now my wifi is working just fine.
1. Battery life: Around 10 hours of keeping play videos like watching movies or intensive work. Normal document work on and off can last around 17 hours. Idling with display on may last for 28 hours. (new update: keep working on MS office and it lasts around 10 hours.)
2. Super light weight and big screen of course. ( I also got a rechargeable blue tooth mouse to save a USB port.)
3. Micro SD card slot: I love it. Acer swift 5 uses SD card with half of the card exposed outside, making it easy to bend. This LG used micro SD and most of the card in the laptop. I now used 512GB micro SD card as the drive. I can bring the card away with me for the important data.
4. Read/Write speed up to 87 MB/s for big file transfer among SSD, micro SD, and USB3.0 card reader. The card reader was tested around 100MB/s on Acer swift 5.
5. easy to setup with rechargeable bluetooth mouse.
6. support up to 2TB micro SD card for future expansion.
7. 3x USB3.0 + 1x type C USB3.0 are powerful enough to drive those WD and Seagate derive at the same time. I am not sure about USB3.1. However, I have 4 of them connected and only transferring data with 2 HDD drives.
1. Response a little bit slower than Acer swift 5. But still can take it. (I turned down real-time security things. Anyway, I usually behind a gateway firewall)
2. Audio effect is not good without earphone, much worse than Acer swift 5. High pitch sounds like locked inside the computer. This is basically not for entertainment. Earphone or external speakers are recommended. The win 10 even has no equalizer for me to fix sound effects.
3. A little bit glare of video playback, not top quality, worst than Acer swift 5.
4. If fan is triggered on, it generates more heat and it seems getting into dead loop of keep cooling down. It ends up with making it shorter battery time. Dimming the screen is a better option so that the PC stay longer for 1 full charge and avoiding fan triggered.
Conclusion: This is very good for business travel and documentation work, not recommended for gaming or entertainment.
Edit - fast forward to now, I've only used this indoors and its always in a soft case. The screen now has DOZENS of etched spot marks from the keyboard all over the screen, in an obvious keyboard grid. Don't waste your money on this thing.
Outright false advertising on the battery life. With screen turned all the way down and minimal browsing I'm lucky to get 6 or 7 hours on this thing, a far cry from what is advertised. When it says I have 1hr45m left, it'll shut down 30 min later with a dead battery.
Screen is also not very bright, not fit for outdoor use, but it also won't let you dim it down a ton either, it's too bright at its lowest setting for use during dark lectures and the like.
This thing is a misfit that only excels at being light weight, and at nothing else. Others do this just as well, but have better processors, or brighter screens, or more dimmable screens, etc.
I'll hang on to it, but I won't buy it again, nor recommend that others buy it.
I bought it used from Amazon (loved the discount), but the LG Control Center was missing when I got the machine, and it's been awful trying to get the download link from LG.
Also having a hard time getting the specs for upgrades to RAM and to add a second SSD. I bought this specific model because they advertise that it's upgradeable, but I can't find a hint of what the specs are for the RAM upgrade or what SSD to add.
I guess I'll keep trying to find a support tech who knows the answers, but it sure would be nice if it didn't take so many attempts.
I would absolutely recommend this laptop (and I already have). Just make sure you are plenty patient if you need support.
