I have a 1050ti laptop - it doesn’t play max settings, medium at best, with a few settings turned to high. I have better specs too. Excellent price though and I suspect import charges. Nonetheless, have some heat.

Must be something wrong with your laptop then, because it does from the reviews I have seen, unless of course you are expecting 60 fps constant, this will do max setting with aa off, on any decently made game from 37 - 65 fps
any game at max settings? at 5fps?


If you need to disable AA, then it ain't max settings

Any game on high ssetting on a 1050 4Gb? Not convinced

Spending more than a few quid on a transaction with Gearbest? LOOOOOOOOOL
Not a snowballs chance in hell

You'll get better customer service from a potato
No, nothing wrong with my laptop. I suppose I didn’t mention what games I play. And of course AA is turned off too.

Big difference from a 1050 and 1050ti...
Seems good price but I would be a bit worried about using gearbest for this much money.
Any game at max setting HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
How would this Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop, Intel Core i5-7300HQ, GeForce GTX 1050Ti, 15.6" Full HD, 8GB DDR4, 256GB SSD with US Keyboard amazon.co.uk/dp/…6HW compare?
£650 to Gearbest - You do realise who they are ? Where they are based ? lack of warranty? How terrible their reviews are etc ,etc
I do wish posters would research the seller before posting here (It came up cheapest ,when I Googled it ) .

Lenovo have repair centres everywhere in the world including the UK.
£650 for a 1050 from gearbest?!? Ice cold.

Also a 1050 TI won't play any game at max settings, you'd be looking at a 1070 for that I imagine.

And they have bad customer service, i would never buy a Lenovo laptop again.
Madness handing over this much money to fearworst. Once bitten.

I'm not that impressed by Lenovo either, but if (and it's a big IF) you can somehow get this for £646 without additional charges, it is a good deal.
I'd draw the line at £200-250 on Chinese imports.
However the deals from few weeks ago on dell 7000 gaming series from amazon warehouse and dell direct are cheaper and have warranty!!

Also it's unclear whether the Windows 10 version if multi-language or Chinese only. If it's the latter you're going to install a new version together with all the necessary drives and all the necessary Lenovo software which is a real pain.

If that's the case, it's more of a risk as the postage costs to HK would be pretty high.

That said, and AFAIK, Gearbest do cover the return postage if the item is the DOA, and if its fully working on delivery, it would be unusual for it to fail <12 months.

Yes , obviously , but as you have no warranty , buying from this lot - what use is that to you ? I do wish folks would understand the risks at least before buying unwarranted stuff from these Chinese sites . Yes they google as "cheap" - but please understand you have no manufacturers warranty and zero customer service from Gearbest - as for returning if DOA - best of luck with that !

Only if bought from an authorised Lenovo outlet - which these dodgy "grey" Chinese sellers are certainly not

He probably plays flash games
Great price for the spec. A 1050ti will play most modern games at medium/high with some bells and whistles turned off. Games will look fine. Anything pre 2016 will be high/ultra again depending on the game.

Only problem with this deal is gearbest. Granted I've never had an issue with them before, but I've never paid over a tenner for anything from them either.

Gearbest isn't "dodgy" or grey - you keep on wrongly posting in every Gearbest thread.

Anyone sensible buyer is aware of risks. The less risk averse you are the less you spend, simple as that.

I bought a £200 laptop from Gearbest as well as many other items.

Gearbest items aren't "grey" imports ? Are you sure ? So they have full manufacturers warranty ? Assure me they have full manufacturers warranty and I will stop warning our less savvy members of the risks involved in buying from a Chinese seller .

Remember HUKD are aware that many members are incentivised to post good reviews of these Chinese sellers and I have seen several posts and comments removed recently (even as I was in the process of replying to them ! )

Yes, they have a full warranty. The problem is that more often than not you have to send it back to them in HK or their Spanish service centre (yes, Gearbest have a service centre in Europe). Doesn't mean that the product doesn't have a warranty.

You just seem to have a strange hangup about Gearbest since you post the same misinformation in every single thread. And no, there are no members that I'm aware of on here that are incentivized to post good reviews of Gearbest.
Its a hot from me. Prices of laptops just keep dropping
Hmm, my last comment was deleted?

I'm a long time Gearbest customer but I'm not at the point of handing over this kind of money for a product that will be very likely to attract VAT plus various handling fees, before receipt. If they do tax insurance, I'd think that was a sound choice.

I would suspect you may well get hit for taxes if it was sent back under warranty, I had that happen when I lived in Canada and send a hard drive back to the USA for warranty service. After a lot of communication, it was eventually waived.

I'd be quite comfortable to take a punt, if this was sent out from one of the EU outlets.
