Silentmaxx laptops: could they be really less noisy than those from other resellers?

    "Speakers
    Barebones manufacturer Clevo uses the chassis volume pretty well to create a decent sound system. While the two speakers are located right and left next to the display hinge, the subwoofer can be found at the bottom of the 17-inch system. We can completely support the assessment of our audio analysis, and the sound is surprisingly good for a notebook with the activated Soundblaster X-Fi MB5 technology. The sound systems of the MSI GT73VR and Asus G752VS are beaten in many scenarios, even though MSI is almost on par.

    Great: Up to 87 dB(A) are sufficient even for bigger rooms. Fans of headsets will be happy as well. The D/A converter ESS Sabre HiFi and the amplifier Texas Instruments Burr-Brown should improve the sound quality with attached headphones (support for 600 Ohm, sampling rate up to 24-bit/192 KHz) and therefore impress audio enthusiasts, DJs and producers."

    Hello!

    Did you end up buying a silentmaxx device? I am currently considering them, but being unable to find any user experiences about them, I am hesitating to order.

    Didn't really help either, that the sales-representatives in the chat couldn't answer most of my technical questions (e.g. whether Optimus is available, or even if they are based on Clevo barebones). When asked what they do to make the devices more quiet I was merely pointed to their 6-weeks-return policy, which according to the website doesn't even apply outside of Germany (though he stated that they handle notebooks more liberally).

    You are smart to be afraid. I think avoiding them under the circumstances could be wise.

    It's all about the balance of cost/performance on that system.

    Every different system is a different balance, you can't focus on a single detail like that.

    I like n850hk1 but I think clevo made a mistake choosing a really cheap speaker for a multimedia/gaming laptop like this

    That's a fair point to make. Historically, the speakers (in Clevos) have never been the selling point, but they've gotten better over time; maybe we'll see an appreciable upgrade in the next iteration.
