Alienware 15 R2 Notebook Review

 

New revision. We already checked the Alienware 15 twice. In this review update, the gaming notebook gets a fresh Skylake processor and the fast Nvidia GTX 980M. Can Alienware keep the components of the 15-inch device cool?

excellent performance with good Turbo utilization, sophisticated chassis, good input devices, useful tools, comprehensive illumination, long battery runtimes, decent sound, good cooling solution, optional graphics amplifier, matte IPS panel, very fast...

display way too dark, low color space coverage, loud under load, GPU throttling in extreme situations, slightly complicated maintenance, no SSD or hybrid hard drive by default

The first review sample of the Alienware 15 with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M was already very convincing and got a very good rating. The model with the Radeon R9 M295X on the other hand had some issues and was not a good alternative. With its brand-new...

Alienware quality, driver issues galore

 

- Buy a laptop cooling mat ( Doesn't have to be a super huge, loud, crazy LED one either.) I have a single small fan one that is super for when I'm gaming- Buy a SSD for fun. The HDD that it comes with works great but putting a SSD in it for the OS is...

This laptop is amazingly fast. It runs games on high to very high with few issues. FFXIV Heavensword benchmark on very high setting pulled in a 6134. Runs solid at 38 FPS. Games like DayZ ran a lot slower and setting had to be pretty low. Battlefield...

As stated in the title - Driver issues...It took me a few days to get everything working perfectly because of driver issues. Dont' get me wrong, this should not keep you from buying the laptop. Just know you're going to have to do a little work to get...

Disappointing Quality Control, return after 6 hours.

 

- I do know that it's a refurbished product. But the refurbished that doesn't do its job? I'm sorry.

- love the looks and overall appearance of the labtop

- The keyboard's a unbelievable. The S and D keys, the backspace and [ keys keep switching back and forth. Sometime I pressed the S key and I gave me SD and the same goes for the D key as well. This is the 2nd Dell laptop I've returned this month. and...

Terrible product for a 3D Artist

 

If you wanna plat videogames go for it, if you wanna work, never buy it.

Design is awesome. Looks classy af. Extra buttons on the left makes your life easier.

Overheating from the very beginning. Problem with graphic card and main board connection. Couldn't work with a secondary monitor with Maya, Nuke or Adobe series. Finally returned it.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great value

 

* high end pc * good graphics

* maybe, the webcam is not the latest model ... * be aware that the default screen size is reduced, so everything is smaller. If you have eye problems, you might want to increase the screen size to normal.
