Gigabyte P57Wv5 review

 

A large portion of portable gaming power

Fantastic performance ; Ample connectivity ; Accurate IPS screen ; Good looks

All-plastic body ; Overly sensitive trackpad ; Bizarre DVD drive positioning

A sturdy and large gaming laptop, the Gigabyte P57W can crunch through the latest titles thanks to its Nvidia 970M and nippy SSD.

Gigabyte P57W Notebook Review

 

Gaming scion. With the P57W, Gigabyte presents a high-end notebook in 17-inch format, which brings various modern features and technologies. Apart from a replaceable drive bay, the manual fan control stands out. Do rivals have to prepare for strong...

replaceable drive bay ; always cool palm rest ; decent battery life ; keyboard with backlight ; graphics switch ; good IPS display ; SSD / HDD combo ; slim case ; handy tools ; USB 3.1 Type C ; high performance

quite sensitive surfaces ; Clickpad yields heavily ; modest speakers ; only 3 GB of VRAM ; unstable lid

At a first glance, you could think the Gigabyte P57W was a bigger variant of the P55W v5. This impression is actually true in most aspects, but there are some adaptations. For example, the 17-incher scores points with a better interface layout and...

Gigabyte P57W Review

 

Announced at CES 2016, Gigabyte's 17.3-inch P57W is a thin-and-light gaming powerhouse, with Intel's latest Core i7 processor and Nvidia GTX 970M graphics.

Very good gaming performance ; Gorgeous IPS display ; Hot-swappable upgrade bay ; Excellent battery life ; Good cooling system

All plastic build ; Display lacks Nvidia G-Sync support ; Keyboard could use more feedback ; Only two RAM slots

Gigabyte P57W Review and Ratings

 

Gigabyte's under-an-inch GTX 970 gaming laptop delivers lots of CPU and GPU horsepower for the money, with a sprawling 17-inch IPS screen and a subdued design. Only some keyboard issues keep it from stardom.

Thin for a 17-inch laptop with high-powered graphics ; Low-glare IPS screen with blue-light filtering ; Swappable module lets you install a third storage drive ; Copious connectivity and display-out options ; Sleek body, with subtle design details

Key backlighting is faint, limited to two levels ; Arrow keys and numpad not set apart from rest of key layout ; More keyboard flex than we'd like ; No G-Sync support

There's a lot of competition in this space—17-inch gaming laptops—these days, and $1,699 is no impulse buy for a laptop, not by a long shot. So why should this Gigabyte model claim your money, versus other gaming-focused models in the mid-$1,000s zone?

Gigabyte P57W

 

Great performance for a decent price.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good machine, but poor parts

 

If the 1TB drive didn't die shortly after arrival, I'd probably be happy with this laptop. However I'd also suggest you consider the ASUS Predator. It's bigger and heavier, but has greater room for expansion (4 RAM bays rather than 2, and can handle an...

The P57W is a nice balance of size, performance, and battery life for a gaming laptop. - It's lighter and thinner than the ASUS Predator, has better battery life than the MSI GE72 series, and matches or outperforms both when it comes to gaming. - The...

- First of all, the 1TB magnetic drive in my laptop failed within hours of it being turned on, making loud clicking noises well known to those who have seen drive death. - The trackpad is flimsy. Like everyone else who's written a review about the...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

This review is incomplete - potential mistake, potential SSD bait and switch - will update review

 

It looks good.

Everything on the product description would lead you to believe it has a PCIe SSD that will be faster than any current SATA SSD. First bootup was slower than my desktop running a Samsung 850 EVO - I was suspicious and checked the device manager - sure...
