Acer Swift 3 SF315 (8250U, MX150, FHD) Laptop Review

 

Multi-talented. Acer's 15.6-inch all-rounder is equipped with a quad-core processor, an IPS display and a GPU with enough performance power to render current games – and more. Even with its high-performance hardware, it offers a long battery life....

IPS display ; SSD + HDD ; runs quietly ; remains cool ; very good battery life

dark display ; slow memory card reader

Update 07/25/2018: We loved the 4K SKU of the Acer Swift 3 SF-315. The matte panel was very bright, and was thus even usable outdoors. Its 100 % sRGB color space coverage means it’s ideal for professional photo editing, and we were able to all but...

Acer Swift 3 SF315 (i5-7200U, GeForce MX150) Laptop Review

 

A little bit of everything. Acer's newbie scores mainly with its compactness, versatility, and the new GeForce MX150. Small problems with the display and sound do not quite fit with its multimedia ambitions, but thanks to good input devices, security...

various equipment options available ; thin, light, and compact ; flawless workmanship ; good positioning of the ports ; TPM 2.0, fingerprint-sensor ; very nice ClickPad ; very good contrast ratio ; quiet, cool, and economical

very sensitive to fingerprints ; difficult to clean ; no Thunderbolt 3 ; very slow card reader ; maintenance might be difficult ; number pad too small ; display too dark ; very bad brightness distribution measured ; insufficient color-space coverage ;...

If you consider the high price of currently about 950 Euros (~$1116) of the new Acer Aspire Swift 3 SF315-51G-55Z9, only the sub-optimal display - which is by no means terrible - and in particular the pretty bad sound of the newcomer are below the...

Recensione breve del Portatile Acer Swift 3 SF315 (8250U, MX150, FHD)

 

Talantuoso. Questo tuttofare Acer da 15.6" monta un processore quad-core, un display IPS ed una GPU con performance sufficienti per i giochi attuali - ed altro ancora. Nonostante l'hardware high-performance, offre una ampia autonomia della batteria.

Display IPS ; SSD + HDD ; silenzioso ; fresco ; autonomia molto buona

display scuro ; card reader lento

Questo talentuoso multimedia Acer da 15.6" gestisce tranquillamente i giochi attuali sul suo display Full HD lucido. Lascia una buona impressione anche per altri aspetti, indipendentemente dal tipo di applicazione. Il dispositivo non si scalda quasi...

Diverse configuraties verkrijgbaar ; Dun, licht en compact ; Perfecte bouwkwaliteit ; Goede positionering van de poorten ; TPM 2.0, vingerafdrukscanner ; Zeer goede ClickPad ; Zeer hoog contrast ; Stil, koel en economisch

Zeer gevoelig voor vingerafdrukken ; Lastig schoon te maken ; Geen Thunderbolt 3 ; Zeer langzame kaartlezer ; Onderhoud is niet eenvoudig ; Klein nummerblok ; Donker beeldscherm ; Zeer slechte helderheidsverdeling ; Tekortschietende kleurdekking ;...

Recensione breve del Portatile Acer Swift 3 SF315 (i5-7200U, GeForce MX150)

 

Un po' di tutto. Questo nuovo modello Acer si fa notare per compattezza, versatilità, e la nuova GeForce MX150. Piccoli problemi con il display ed il suono non rispecchiano le sue ambizioni multimedia, ma grazie ai buoni dispositivi di input, le...

disponibili varie opzioni di dotazioni ; sottile, leggero, compatto ; costruzione impeccabile ; buona posizione delle porte ; TPM 2.0, sensore impronte ; Clickpad molto carino ; contrasto molto buono ; silenzioso, fresco, frugale

molto sensibile alle ditate ; difficile da pulire ; manca la Thunderbolt 3 ; card reader molto lento ; manutenzione non semplice ; tastierino numerico troppo piccolo ; display troppo scuro ; pessima distribuzione della luminosità ; insufficiente...

Se considerate il prezzo elevato di circa 950 Euro (~$1130) del nuovo Acer Aspire Swift 3 SF315-51G-55Z9, solo il display non ottimo - ma non terribile - ed in particolare il pessimo sound sono sotto il livello di prezzo. Esteticamente, tutto è...

Recensione breve del Portatile Acer Swift 3 (i5-7200U, HD 620)

 

Adatto all'utilizzo quotidiano. Acer ha imparato a produrre portatili buoni ed economici con un design attraente. Il nostro modello lo conferma. Tuttavia, non è solo l'esterno a convincere. Lo Swift 3 ha abbastanza da offrire anche all'interno. I...

design attraente ; buona autonomia ; leggero e portatile

schermo lucido ; nessuna opzione per la manutenzione ; il multitouch del ClickPad non è affidabile

Con lo Swift 3, Acer realizza un dispositivo da ufficio che è adatto all'utilizzo quotidiano. Il design è attraente e i componenti interni sono buoni. Secondo i nostri test questo dispositivo può competere anche con modelli più costosi. Le prestazioni...

Courte critique du PC portable Acer Swift 3 SF315 (i5-7200U, GeForce MX150)

 

Un peu de tout. Le dernier-né d'Acer se distingue principalement par sa compacité, sa polyvalence, et la nouvelle GeForce MX150. De petits problèmes avec l'écran et le son ne conviennent pas à ses ambitions multimédias, mais grâce aux bons...

options d'équipement variées ; fin, léger, compact ; finitions impeccables ; ports bien agencés ; TPM 2.0, capteur d'empreintes ; ClickPad très joli ; très bon contraste ; silencieux, frais et économe

très sensible aux traces de doigt ; difficile à nettoyer ; pas de Thunderbolt 3 ; lecteur de carte très lent ; la maintenance peut être difficile ; pavé numérique trop petit ; écran trop sombre ; distribution de la luminosité très mauvaise ; couverture...

Si l’on prend en compte le prix élevé du nouvel Acer Aspire Swift 3 SF315-51G-55Z9, seul l’écran moyen et le son moyen ne sont pas à la hauteur. Visuellement, tout serait bien s’il n’était pas si sensible aux empreintes de doigt, qui plus est...

Courte critique du PC portable Acer Swift 3 SF315 (8250U, MX150, FHD)

 

Multiples talents. Le 15,6 pouces équilibré d'Acer est équipé d'un processeur quatre cœurs, d'un écran IPS, et d'un GPU assez puissant pour les jeux actuels - et plus encore. Même avec ces composants puissants, son autonomie est très bonne.

écran IPS ; SSD + HDD ; silencieux ; ne chauffe pas ; très bonne autonomie

écran sombre ; lecteur de carte lent

Le portable multimédia de 15,6 pouces d’Acer est équilibré, et fait tourner les jeux actuels fluidement sur son écran Full HD brillant. Il laisse une bonne impression dans tous les domaines, quel que soit le type de logiciel utilisé. L’appareil ne...

Um pouco de tudo. O novato da Acer ganha pontos principalmente com sua compacidade, versatilidade e a nova GeForce MX150. Pequenos problemas com a tela e o som não combinam perfeitamente com suas ambições multimídia, mas graças a bons dispositivos de...

Se você considerar o preço elevado de atualmente cerca de 950 Euros (~$1116) do novo Acer Aspire Swift 3 SF315-51G-55Z9, tela apenas sub-ótima - o que não significa que seja ruim - e, em particular, o som muito ruim de o recém-chegado está abaixo da...
