Also this laptop has a bigger brother – Acer Predator G9 793, absolutely same laptop but with 17inch panel, 4k variant and 4 speakers.
First of all, good sides:
Solid construction, soft touch martial all over the case, no glossy parts.
Sound is really loud, even basses exists here, though I can’t say its best of the best.
Outstanding performance, take a look at this data https://goo.gl/oyF9dl, almost all games run over 60 fps in 1080 and over 30 fps in 4k. Take a look a several gameplay videos that I’ve captures on this beast, all of them were captured in 4k resolution, on ultra settings with no AA:
Rise of Tomb Raider - https://youtu.be/rNRMnytsC2c
The Witcher 3 - https://youtu.be/dJicr6we0z0
Quantum Break - https://youtu.be/PNofDssIgS4
(1080 with max AA) Crysis 3 - https://youtu.be/H1ja_BhD0-Q
Resident Evil 7 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiF-zhTwNDE
Battlefield 1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypOEnJ9KbKs
Dishonored 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jhtvj4BkiMc
Only in Ghost Recon Wildlands I had less then 30 fps https://youtu.be/lbeW9PZvsUo
And bad sides:
Thought laptop is 15inch, its bulky as hell, thank god it looks okay, not like some previous gaming crap lappys: http://www.notebookcheck.net/uploads/tx_nbc2/toshiba_qosmio_x305_q725_01.jpg
Screen has some ghosting, previous static images can stay on screen for some time. Not this laptop, but image illustrates the issue: https://goo.gl/H42OCJ
Some laptops has overheating issue on CPU. Though in rarely influence on performance, its still sad thing to have in such big laptop. Issue described in this thread: https://goo.gl/KjNNBN, simple CPU repasting solves the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVEpuZNWLxw
Stepback in turms of battery life since g-sync laptops doesn’t support nvidia optimus. Around 4-5 hours of work.
