GIGABYTE Aero 15X V8-BK4 Review Update
Sleek and slim aluminium design, Strong gaming performance, Small screen bezel; 144Hz 1080p screen, Plenty of ports
Nose-cam placement; Poor OS optimization; Quiet speakers; Lacklustre trackpad performance, Bad and unresponsive keyboard, Poor thermals (60 idle, 90+ gaming), Heavy thermal throttling, Buggy Gigabyte software, Broken Operating System (requires OS reinstall to fix), Blue Screen errors, Driver errors,
While the Aero 15X looks great, and the gaming performance is very strong, I cannot recommend the Aero 15X at this time. From blue screens, to the Gigabyte software (Smart Manager V4) only receiving half of its intended function. This laptop is, unfortunately, not a solid machine, despite the specs that it has under the hood.
