    PLEASE HELP-- ANYONE WHO OWNS A CLEVO N850 HJ or HK

    My new PC keyboard and others on brand new PCs of this model for sale here in Australia are displaying colours incorrectly on what appear to be faulty keyboards.

    I trying to determine if this problem is specific only to this model here in Australia and if my reseller has gotten a faulty batch or if it is worldwide and very bad engineering and quality control by Clevo.

    I will be submitting a written complaint to my resellers manager to forward this issue to Clevo.

    CAN ANYONE who owns one of these PCs PLEASE CHECK if your PC is behaving as below and post a reply in this thread describing what you see. Thank you

    THE PROBLEM--
    When displaying red, green or dark blue over the whole keyboard ALL LEDs under ALL keys display the correct colour.

    When displaying light blue, yellow or purple as selected from the colour wheel app, ALL the keys and LEDs on the entire keyboard also display the correct colour selected EXCEPT

    ALL the keys on the front row display 2 different colours, one on the Left & one on the Right side, front and back of EACH key.

    When light blue key colour is selected the front row only shows dark blue one side and green on the other.

    When yellow key colour is selected the front row only shows yellow one side and green on the other.

    When purple key colour is selected the front row only shows purple one side and dark blue on the other.

    This fault is very obvious, looks bad and most would naturally assume is a definite fault with the keyboard.

    Some reviews for anyone interested--

    http://mogztech.com/eluktronics-n850hk1-pro-premium-gaming-laptop/


    Also a New review from Toms Hardware-

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/sager-np6852-gaming-laptop-review,4955.html

    A few of my own observations that differ from the Toms review-
    The first of these is that my CPU and GPU are not getting as hot as they did in their tests.

    In a 23C room, running separately several times, Prime 95 stress test saw my CPU go to a Max of 85C and Furmark had my GPU at a Max of 80C.
    This was with fan speed on Auto, switching manually to 100% fan speed and the temps were slightly less.
    If you add 10C to the room temp to make it a very hot 33C then Add the same to the above temps then 90-95C in a very hot environment.
    The max TDP for the i7700HQ CPU according to Intel specs is 100C.
    So I dont think with normal gaming and multimedia use the cooling is really a worrying issue.

    Your results may of course vary.

    Regarding build quality, I don't think it is quite as bad as they describe it -

    The main hand rest and trackpad area is very firm , the area has only a very slight flex IF you press very firmly with your fingertips at certain points and try to deliberately flex it.
    The keyboard in a few spots has a very slight flex IF you push abnormally hard on the keys and hold them down with that hard pressure.
    Unless your stab at the keys individually very hard when typing you wont notice any with normal key press pressure.
    I dont touch type but henpeck at keyboard with 2 fingers and a light touch and dont notice any flexing whatsoever with normal usage.

    Yes it does flex if you push on the screen cover or try to open the screen against the firm hinge pressure on on side only instead of in the middle. Yes this could have been made out of thicker stronger plastic.
    If you were very rough with the screen or hit the closed cover very hard with something very solid then you may do some damage to the screen but again with normal care in handling a PC it shouldn't be an issue.
    I'm sure the same could be said of some Aluminium covers too.
    Most of the mid and higher end Clevo PCs have an Al chassis so that is always a different buying option.
    This is the entry level range.
    The plastic is very resistant everywhere to fingerprint smudges which is great .

    I am having an issue with the colour display as I have described in detail in my post above in this thread.

    I will update this post with a few more observations as time permits.
    Any Q feel free to msg me.

    The vbios is in the BIOS and I would not try to flash it, Nvidia laser cut their chips.

    Good plan, enjoy your 1050 though and the 4GB of Vram should serve you well.
