assalamualaikum and good day all. This here is my personal review for Clevo P670SG aka Illegear S7.
I bought it a week ago and only get to personal pick up at Illegear's office at Empire Damansara on the 31st Jan 2015
the first day that i went there, straight away fell in love with the unit. sleek brushed metal feel. damn nice one. decided for it because the differences in price between 15.6 and 17.3 is not much. it's better for me to go with 17.3. damn nice size also.

initially, i wanted to get me a 256gb ssd as the primary os drive and the 1tb sshd as secondary drive. after few days, they told me that mu unit cannot stack both disk drive due to insufficient space as this clevo is a slim type. then i decided to get me 2 x 128gb m.2 ssd to configure raid-0. they told me that it was not compatible with OS installation. want to buy 2 x 256 m.2 ssd is too expensive la... i die wallet explode to bits. :sweat:
After a deeper thought about it, i decided to get me a 256gb m.2 ssd instead however got no stock. such a waste actually if we buy 128 because 256 is much more cheaper. plus raid-0 will get you into trouble if one of them fails. it's not going to be like you'll be running whole lot of VM too right? :sweat:

after the unboxing, i forgot that my unit here does not have optical drive. use the lanun windows dvd and use win to flash on my pendrive. installed the windows on my unit through usb drive. Drivers included in the CD provided are adequate.
1. GTX980M included drivers give windows scores of 7.3. after being updated through nvidia's website, the score went down to 5.3. however real time test with cod modern warfare 3 with highest setting does not affected
2. keyboard backlight appears to be leaking. is this normal? refer to keyboard pictures attached. if it's normal, i'm cool with it. Somebody please advise on this :help:
3. usb 3.0 drivers given when installed fails to start. after certain experiment with the settings in device manager and several drivers downloaded from the net, everything runs smooth.
4. fingerprint scanner fails to start when installed. solve the issue with the same way as the usb 3.0 issue, all become smooth.
my unit is running really cool. no warm or heat issues at all. load the unit with heavy multitasking opening tabs of browsers, several excel books, words, powerpoint, photoshop, games, playing blu ray video all at the same time, it didn't even reach 60 degrees and everything runs smoothly. these are not even on ssd. couldn't imagine more on what it could do with 512gb ssd. :hyper:
onkyo speakers plus subwoofer is totally awesome. when i say it's awesome, it really does. no distortion at all even if it runs on maximum volume.
the standard LCD that came with the unit is so freaking awesome. wondering how 4k screen will look like on this if available :hehe:
Did not have the chance to do benchmark test. will update later on. if you want me to test anything else, let me know. B] B]
