Lenovo Legion Y520 review

 

A mid-range gaming laptop at a budget price

Easy on the wallet ; Stays cool ; Comfortable keyboard

Dim display ; No chroma or macro programmability

The Lenovo Legion Y520’s budget price belies its true nature: an excellent mid-range gamer. It has flaws, like a dim screen, but none that are fatal.

Lenovo Legion Y520

 

The Lenovo Legion Y520 is a budget gaming laptop that requires you to make no compromises in build quality or performance. It delivers smooth 1080p gaming at high settings alongside a full feature set.

Proficient gaming performance. Spacious hard drive plus boot SSD. Restrained, but stylish design. Well-built keyboard.

Tacky touchpad design. Red accent coloring might not be to everyone's taste.

Lenovo's rebranded gaming effort is a success in my book, even if that ultimately boils down to a new name, aesthetic tweaks, and good timing with incorporating the latest hardware. The Legion Y520 is well designed, with a full feature set, and...

Lenovo Legion Y520 Review

 

The Lenovo Legion Y520 offers strong performance for its price and a sleek design. But its screen is dull, and its touchpad places form over function.

Sleek design; Comfortable keyboard; Strong gaming and productivity performance; Useful software

Dull display; Oddly shaped touchpad

Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBA (i5-7300HQ, RX 560) Laptop Review

 

Budget Gaming. Lenovo's budget-priced gaming notebooks start at €700 (~$817). While these basic variants are not that powerful, they should still be enough for some gamers. In this review, we will be looking at the Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBA, a...

solid CPU and GPU performance ; good input devices ; affordable price ; good maintenance options ; decent design

average colour space accuracy ; mediocre brightness and contrast ; slow HDD

The Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBA is a viable gaming notebook that is useful outside of just playing games. At just over €700 (~$817), the device is a good choice for those on a tight budget. The Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBA is a gaming notebook that is...

The Best Budget Gaming Laptop

 

There isn't a perfect budget gaming laptop, but after more than 30 hours of testing we found the Lenovo Legion Y520 is the best you can get for around $1,000

Lenovo Legion Y520 Review

 

The Lenovo Legion 520 is one of the best mainstream gaming laptops we have tested this year, but there is a major flaw.

Good for 1080p gaming ; Well built ; Good Speakers

Software issue

The Lenovo Legion Y520 can be recommended to anyone who is looking to play games in 1080p. It has some drawbacks, but none of those are real deal breakers.

Lenovo Legion Y520-15 Gaming Laptop

 

Lenovo perhaps isn't the first name which comes to mind when considering gaming laptops. But the company is seeking its own path, and a mix of bang for buck and design attention may help in revealing it. The Legion Y520-15 is one of its current...

We like the look of the Legion Y520-15. Physically, rather than on paper and in practice, because we don’t believe that the selection of parts delivers an overall experience best for gaming.

LENOVO Legion Y520 15.6" Gaming Laptop - Black

 

Performance

Battery life is shocking, but I guess its a trade off for performance.
