    how bad was your backlight bleed? like I have some but looking at some peoples I feel mine may not be as bad, I contacted my retailer they said sorry part of the manufacturing process so im considering whether I return or just keep

    overall I like it alot

    Yea, the unit I received was beyond atrocious when it came to bleed as it was visible even in broad daylight. I returned the device on Monday last week, it was received Wednesday and I'm waiting on them to get back to me on my refund. We shall see what they do. But with that said, I think the panels used have a tendency to bleed with the way they're produced. The UX550 models that got shipped out carry the same panel and roughly the same build and exhibit the same problems.

    Just wanted to put my 2 pence worth in.

    So I got the laptop initial thoughts…beautiful looking hardware, the aluminium part feels great and the plastic even though wished it was aluminium feels premium.

    Speed is good on the laptop

    Screen is fantastic the thin bezels

    Iv not had issues with my keyboard and the rgb is great too, works flawlessly

    The cons

    The sound could be better but it is a thin laptop so I guess it is ok

    There is backlight bleed on the screen but i have heard this is part of the manufacturing process I have had worse screens


    Overall it is my best laptop I have had


    p.s hope gigabyte read this and send me a gigabyte backpack! Joke

    Well if you are in no rush just wait a bit. I imagine they'll do some BIOS fix for the root port at some point. If it was PCIe 3.0 x2 I'd be more worried as that could have been hardware. PCIe 2.0 x4 makes it sound more like software somewhere... (I hope)

    Since you're using a French keyboard, do you have the same keyboard issues (when fully updated) than everyone else ?

    Hello,

    I just got a Gigabyte Aero 15 today. I believe the fan's noise is not what it's supposed to be, it makes a weird noise while operating. I've uploaded a 10 second recording of it. Can anyone confirm whether it's supposed to make it?

    Thanks,
    Sirkular

    Uh that definitely does not sound normal. The fan is probably rubbing against the casing.

    Can every owner in this thread PLEASE download HWINFO and navigate to PCI Bus Port 5, as seen in my screenshot below.

    This is to check for the Thunderbolt 3 speeds. This is an issue that seems to be affecting many Aero 15's. You may not have full Thunderbolt 3 speeds *that you paid for*.

    It will literally only take 5 minutes to do. Please take a screenshot and upload it so we can notify Gigabyte.

    HWINFO download location: https://www.hwinfo.com/download.php

    Refer to my screenshot below of where to look. Note that on the left, I have selected Root Port #5 under the PCI Bus heading. Note on the right under the red highlights, it says PCIE version 2 and speed x4, which is not the advertised PCIE version *3* x4 that we paid for.
