Solid laptop but noticeable issues September 9, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from San Jose, CA United States  
I was excited to upgrade from my old laptop, but despite GIGABYTE's excellent quality control, my laptop came with noticeable keyboard ghosting. My specific model is supposed to have N-key rollover to combat this, but even in trying to combat the issue GentechPC Customer Support has been generally unresponsive in helping me get my issue fixed and I'm forced to try to get an RMA from GIGABYTE themselves.

Expensive but Excellent August 20, 2018
Reviewer: Clem Francis  
I was at first quite leery of purchasing this product due to its price, but extensive research online kept recommending this laptop. The battery life is fantastic, as is its thin size. Very handy for university life, though the price may be too much for the university student!
Its biggest issue is its thermals, but GenTech was at the time offering a free liquid metal pasting which helps manage that admirably.

All in all its a lovely laptop, but the main concern is that the keyboard feels rather cramped and as a result, I tend to mistype. Kindly note though,  some users complained of build quality issues such as chattering keys, backlight bleed, and ignored light inputs, but I was fortunate enough to not have encountered those issues.
Great laptop if you're looking for a thin light powerful laptop that does not always need to be plugged in; just be aware that there are other users online that had some issues with the build quality.
