Gigabyte 14WV7-OG4 overview

  • 1Description

The Gigabyte 14" Aero 14Wv7-BK4 Laptop is a lightweight Windows 10 computer system that comes built with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor along with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card to play games and work on reports while on the road. The Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor features four cores that operate at a stock speed of 2.8 GHz and can achieve speeds of up to 3.8 GHz when running demanding apps. To assist the CPU in handing multiple apps simultaneously, 16GB of DDR memory is installed. For storage, the Aero is equipped with a 512GB M.2 SATA SSD that enables quick boot times as well as fast data access.

Gigabyte has outfitted this notebook with a 14" display that has a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 along with an IPS panel, which provides wide-viewing angles and accurate colors. With NVIDIA Optimus technology support, the notebook can utilize the performance from the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU for shutter-free gaming or an Intel HD Graphics 620 chipset to preserve battery life while surfing the Internet or typing reports. Additionally, both graphics options can expand the on-screen workspace by connecting your monitor to the notebook's mini-DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0 output ports.

Aside from visuals, audio is provided with two built-in 2W speakers, and social media is made more fun with the inclusion of an integrated webcam and mic. For connectivity to the networks and peripherals, 802.11b/g/n wireless and Bluetooth 4.0 are on board. Other notable features include a SD card reader, three USB 3.0 ports, and one USB 3.1 Type-C port, which sports a reversible connection as well as speeds of up to 10 Gb/s.

Windows 10 Home Features

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

    Gigabyte 14WV7-OG4 reviews

    14" Aero 14 Notebook (Orange) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Personally, I think Gigabyte Aero 14 is a very good product. Gaming is quite satisfactory with NVIDIA GTX 1060, and I really like the ultra slim design. 16G RAM is enough for my usage. Screen is pretty fine. Although I am not a big fan of its touchpad - little insensitive. In general, it is a well-crafted product with high performance, gaming and design experience are awesome!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent laptop, with few caveats I really wanted to love this laptop. I had great expectations that yielded from the countless praising reputable reviewers have done. However, I beg to differ. This laptop is solid, without a doubt. CPU and GPU hardware is top of the line. The 1440p matte screen is great (except for a few small dark spots on the screen, no biggie for me but not to be expected from a $1600+ machine). The keyboard is a joy to type in. I am a full time student, and so typing experience is important. Sometimes the P key does not work after wake-up, however this problem is fixed with a reboot. Might be just a software glitch. The macro keys are useful, however the bright rgb colors are distracting so I keep them turned off. The 2-level key lighting is.. well ok at best. There is uneven lighting thorough the keyboard, and worse within the same key. The trackpad is decent, no real complaints there. Battery is great, I get 6+ hours consistently. Gaming performance is top-notch. Now to my big complaints. Build quality... it is not $1600+ quality. This thing is both a fingerprint and smudge magnet. I cannot keep this thing clean. Everything gets dirty way too easily (I frequently type 4000 + words in one sitting). The bottom openings for the fans attract lint too easily, and it is very hard to remove.The bottom rubber footings are glued on and some of the glue protrudes out the rubber feet and so that attracts any lint it can... a mess. The SATA drive included is too slow. Wakeup takes a little too long (something mentioned by other reviewers). Wish it would it come with a pcle m.2, especially considering the price. It comes LOADED with software, however I find it to be choppy at best and so I got rid of most of it. The fan is also relatively loud, even when not gaming. However it does have a silent mode that limits it to the bare minimum. Overall this is a decent laptop, with a couple of caveats.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar I can't say enough good things about this laptop. The build quality is excellent, it has plenty�of power for just about any gaming or productivity�workload, the screen looks nice, the keyboard feels nice and nothing I've seen at this price point can compete with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very happy with it I have been using for Adobe photo & video editing and Steam games and it works fantastic!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good enough This is a great laptop without a doubt. The top of the line specs are only topped by the top of the line price. However, the drawbacks are worthy enough to be mentioned. I am a college student who does more work than game, and occasionally vice versa. Aesthetically, this laptop satisfied me for both. It does not have the look at me I have money persona of a Mac, but it also doesn't scream living in a basement nerd either. It is stealthy and unappealing, both pluses in my book. Is the computer fast? Yes. Is it $1,699 fast? No. The only reason being the SATA drive that comes pre-installed. Of course the drive can be changed but for the price of decent PCle, this laptop would be entering the $2,000 + range. The lag is mostly noticeable at startup. Other than the drive, everything is snappy as you would expect from a 7th gen i7 coupled with a 1060 gpu. In terms of gaming, this thing is a beast. No more needs to be said. Now to the drawbacks. These yield from my experience and my own personal opinion. The fan is loud. During gaming it is loud, duh, however it is still loud enough during normal word processing. Although, to be fair, it does have a quiet mode that limits the fan to the minimum. Gigabyte software (bloatware maybe?) that comes installed is poorly translated and choppy (cheap) looking. YouTube videos for some reason are choppy and drop frames randomly. My final gripe is regarding warranty, or moreso the fact that despite countless tries Gigabyte's website does not allow me to register my laptop, and so I'm hoping nothing goes wrong. They need to have a smoother process that actually works. Overall I am satisfied with the laptop and my concerns are not enough for me to get rid of it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, LIght, Tight Formfactor This is fast, the m.2 SSD is super quick. I've used it to slice (make gcode for) 3d models, far quicker than my i5 4th gen with SATA-III SSD. It had no issues with UEFI and a clean Win10 install (never even saw the default Gigabyte install). I put Office Pro on it for Outlook (I send meeting invites, it's just easier to work with an Exchange recipient), no issues. It has Steam and a UE3.5 game on it, plays very well. It came with a USB3.0-Gig-E dongle, no need to buy one. Win10 supports natively. I use my older HDMI 60Hz monitor while at home, I drive it from the mini-DP (not Thunderbolt, but there's a USB3.1, so who cares, really?) through an HDMI dongle, and I'll someday move it over to the native HDMI port and use the mini-DP for a bigger/faster primary monitor. This setup was enabled after the Win10 upgrade by loading the chipset driver (not the vid driver), no issues whatsoever doing so. I love the native laptop screen - the resolution is mindboggling. Same screen I'm told as in the 15 version, but thinner/nearly nonexistant bezel. I like the appearance - mine's black, with a non-illuminated orange highlight strip that doesn't embarrass me in an airport or business meeting. I've got it paired with the MS Sculpt wireless keyboard (AES) and mouse desk set at home, and I have both a bluetooth mouse (by default in my laptop 'go bag') and use the MS sculpt mouse/dongle on the road also (It's got more features). I may get a fast 128/low-heat USB low profile drive and leave it in one of the USB ports for Even Moar Storage(tm). I like this a lot. I'd better, I plan for it to last me the next six years.
