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

Acer's 15.6-inch multi-talented multimedia machine smoothly renders current computer games on its glossy Full HD display. It makes a good impression in every other aspect too, regardless of the kind of application. The device never grows particularly...

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...

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...

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...

Breve Análise do Portátil Acer Swift 3 SF315 (i5-7200U, GeForce MX150)

 

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...

Várias opções de equipamento disponíveis ; Fino, leve e compacto ; Acabamento impecável ; Bom posicionamento das portas ; TPM 2.0, sensor de digitais ; Muito bom ClickPad ; Muito boa razão de contraste ; Silencioso, frio e frugal

Muito sensível às impressões digitais ; Difícil de limpar ; Sem Thunderbolt 3 ; Leitor de cartões muito lento ; Manutenção difícil ; Teclado numérico muito pequeno ; Tela muito escura ; Medida da distribuição de brilho, muito ruim ; Cobertura...

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...

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

 

Allrounder. Acers 15,6-Zoll-Allrounder hat u.a einen Vierkernprozessor, einen IPS-Bildschirm und eine spielefähige GPU an Bord. Trotz leistungsfähiger Hardware muss nicht auf lange Akkulaufzeiten verzichtet werden.

IPS-Bildschirm ; SSD+HDD ; arbeitet leise ; erwärmt sich kaum ; sehr gute Akkulaufzeiten

dunkler Bildschirm ; langsamer Speicherkartenleser

Acers 15,6-zölliger Multimedia-Allrounder bringt alle aktuellen Computerspiele flüssig auf den matten Full-HD-Bildschirm. Auch in allen anderen Anwendungsbereichen gibt der Rechner eine gute Figur ab. Sonderlich laut oder warm wird das Gerät nicht. Der...

Breve análisis del portátil Acer Swift 3 (i5-7200U, HD 620)

 

Buen diseño para el dia a dia. Acer ha aprendido a producir ordenadores portátiles buenos y asequibles con un diseño atractivo. Nuestro modelo de análisis también lo demuestra. Sin embargo, no sólo los valores externos son buenos. El Swift 3 tiene un...

diseño atractivo ; buen aguante de la batería ; ligero y portátil

pantalla lustrosa ; sin opciones de mantenimiento ; Funciones multitouch de ClickPad poco fiables

El Swift 3 es adecuado para usuarios orientados al diseño que buscan un dispositivo móvil para aplicaciones diarias. Sin embargo, la brillante pantalla impide trabajar al aire libre.
