Gigabyte Aero 15W v8-BK4 15.6″ review

The Gigabyte Aero 15W v8-BK4 is a perfect gaming laptop whose screen size is 15.6 inches that is an anti-glare display and provides you with high-level gaming and its hardware makes your laptop strong. This laptop usually come in black color because gamers mostly like black color.

You can get a 512GB Hard disk and the CPU model is 8032, 16GB RAM, and also Gigabyte has windows 10 in it and obviously its graphics processor NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 that is perfect for a gaming laptop.

REASONS TO BUY

Powerful hardware for gaming

Large display size

Backlit keyboard

Plenty of storage space

REASONS TO AVOID

Ultra slim design may not be enough durable as thicker laptops

May get warm during intense gaming sessions

Battery life could be better

Features:

It is an intel Core i7 8750 processor that provides power for demanding games and applications and the 16GB of DDR4 RAM ensures smooth multitasking performance. This laptop also features a spacious 1TB Hard drive for your games, music, movies, and more.

Finally, the Gigabyte Aero 15W v8-BK4 provides NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Ti graphics card and a large display  

Display:

Its screen is a standard screen with a 144Hz IPS display for smooth and responsive gaming as, well as an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max Q graphics card for perfect visuals. This display is a 4k OLED Panel and has punchy, bright colors. Its screen is very reflective and has no color reflection.

Its overall look is so attractive and stylish and its 94-watt hour battery is packed into such a small space. The viewing angles are excellent. It has inner flexibility and the battery time is more powerful than wireless connectivity, and you have, no problem facing its opening time. The webcam quality is awesome. You can record any video on it.

Design:

The lid and interior are matte black aluminum, and overall the body of the laptop felt nice and solid in the build quality. It has no sharp edges which are plastic.

The physical dimensions of the laptop are 35.6cm in width, 25cm in depth, and 1.89cm in height, so its bezels are small and the total weight of this laptop is 2.0kg with the battery 

Portability:

For the network connectivity, there’s a gigabit ethernet port, and support for 802. 11ac wifi, as well as Bluetooth 4.2. Here, is a USB 2.0 port which is a drawback.

On the left side, you get a USB 3.2 Type-A port, one power input port, and an air exhaust vent and on the right side 1 headphones and 1 mic jack, 2 USB 3.2 Type-A ports, 1 Type C 3.2 port, 1 RJ45 port, and a Kensington lock. On the back side, you get an HDMI port and an air exhaust vent. 

Keyboard and trackpad:

The keyboard is really nice to type with I found the keys slightly clicky to press. It is an RGB Keyboard with an individually key backlit, so you can apply a lot of different effects through the Gigabyte fusion software.

There is a little flex in this keyboard while pushing down, otherwise, it’s a perfect and standard-size keyboard. Let’s talk about the trackpad which is made of glass and is so smooth that you can scroll your fingers up and down without any resistance.

Audio:

The dual speakers of this laptop have very high and strong volume. . I usually like high volume during my working time. Some speakers have a very irritating voice and it could damage your ears. Whenever I watch any video on this laptop I  feel never uncomfortable and depressed but its overall performance is nice.
