Apparently the display is an AHVA (Advanced Hyper Viewing Angle) type.You … Apparently the display is an AHVA (Advanced Hyper Viewing Angle) type.You would have been able to read this earlier today had HUKD added the perfectly innocuous post I wrote which included a German review of the Medion with the 1060. Are we being censored now?


It's a very nice display. Mine arrived today.
First impressions
Lovely build quality, doesn't feel budget or anything compared to my Alienware 13
Very very nice keybaoard, nice and bouncy with great lighting
Screen has v good viewing angles. I had to double check it wasn't IPS so your comment makes sense. Matt display so no glare
Speakers not as beefy as I wanted give it's 2.1 sound. Need to play with settings more I think.
Games, ultra 1080p 60fps...it's a GTX 1060 so it doesn't break a sweat on Skyrim Special Edition, Star Wars Battlefront or MGS V I tested. Feels like I need to plug into 4K to to really test its legs out
V v happy with the laptop

Edit: fan noise, near total silence when the GTX is idle and its using the I5 integrated is a HD 530. During gameplay the fans are audible up to 60% system volume.
Back to build quality, this feels like my Alienware. It has that tactile soft touch feel and feels so solid. Time will tell how it lasts but for me if you hid the brand I wouldn't say it was a budget machine

Seems like a great deal, heat added. Only thing putting me off buying is I have no idea who the company is and can't find any reviews for the product

Good deal if you can get for £770.

great deal was looking before but all with 1060 were above 1k

Voted hot as £770 is great price. I would be wary though as this is a bit early in the BF deals and you might get better.

Wouldn't touch Medion again with a barge pole their customer service is shocking! https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.medion.co.I'm

Medion is a German company: http://www.medion.com/gb/shop/gaming-pcs-laptops

I owned a gaming laptop from them several years ago. Had it for a couple of years before selling and upgrading to a desktop. Overall it was very good quality for the price paid and I would use them again given my positive experience.

I've been unable to find a specific review for this laptop however you're likely to find reviews for others within the series that use similar components (and most of them will use the same chassis) notebookcheck.net/Med…tml

Yeah even this model is £1049 at Currys, then its jump up to about £12-1300 for next cheapest.
I ama guessing the 1060 laptop chip version is worth about £300-350 so with Quidco this is a great price.
The 1060 outperforms the old GTX 980m

I'm sorely tempted, that's a superb price for a GTX 1060 laptop. Suspicious that it may have a TN screen though.

I've lost faith in Trustpilot lately, reviews rarely seem to be positive on many companies.
Aldi UK own brand clothing I have personally found to be worse than old rags, and their CS Team a bunch of "Bankers", if you get my meaning!
Medion on the other hand, both in the UK and in Germany have in my considerable experience been magnificent.
They have performed above and beyond regardless of the item being outside of warranty period. I would have no hesitation in buying their products.
My Erazer is about 2.5 years old and they are still helpful with any problems I have; especially valued since the upgrade to Win 10 threw up a few issues.

Beware! You will probably not get Quidco cashback on this if you also use the LAPTOP10 code.

From the Argos Quidco terms and conditions: "Cashback will not be paid in conjunction with any other offer, voucher or discount code unless listed on this page, or with any other discounts such as staff or student discounts "

This is a cracking deal well spotted op.

IPS screen apparently.

I'm suspicious of how they've got the price down so low. It's at least a 200-300+ saving before you even include Cashback, which then makes it £400~.

CPU, good.
RAM, decent.
GPU, great.
Screen, brilliant.
Storage, not bad.

Where's the cost been cut? The only negative I can see is that the battery life is pathetic (3-4 hours...and usually a companies estimates are exaggerated) and that's it quite heavy, which shouldn't be a big deal.

​Would like to hear your feedback if you feel like sharing here.

I have bought several desktops from Medion (Quidco and price tipped it for me also).. good products still going strong. One time had to Email about delivery because channel tunnel had delays due to holiday rush, Medion were excellent returning replies.

Never purchased a laptop and would like to hear some hands experience.

Thanks

Does it have a 128GB SSD? The Descriptions says it does, but the spec doesn't list it. An Argos description mistake?

Difficult to say but the discount code makes it bargain for the specs. It may even have a G-Sync IPS!
I'm only on the fence as I was saving up for the 1080Ti for my desktop, which do I want more...

IPS screen apparently.



Not necessarily, it appears there are X7847 models with TN screens, on the German Medion site: medion.com/de/…tml

Currys and Saveonlaptops/Box also have 128gb SSD in specs on their listings

Seems like a great price for a 1060 specced laptop. If it comes with an ips screen and ssd then even better.

Wow looks great

Cracking deal for a 1060 laptop but my only experience of Medion was once and not the best. Ended up sending the laptop back as it never worked from day one but the customer service was pretty awful.

Good deal but just be careful with warranty issues

Wouldn't recommend medion, I've been left out of pocket and without a laptop for 2 months. Their warranty absolutely sucks.

IPS Screen possibly?. Cant imagine you will get a better laptop anywhere for the specs/price.

It'll break. Don't buy it. I have nothing but disasters with the Medions I have owned/seen. Very poor build quality.

It's not the same model. though I agree it's fairly likely to be IPS.

Why are you mentioning Aldi?! Should we talk about Tesco and Asda too?!

Medion are owned by Lenovo. If you need to return your Lenovo laptop to Lenovo it actually goes to Medion who are honestly really good. They collect it via DPD or Parcelforce and it goes to Germany, its repaired and returned to you, all completely free of charge.

screen is indeed IPS as listed on the Currys website which have it much dearer. This is a steal, VR laptop for £854.99

Aldi sell medion branded goods/tat.

Great price though. Tempted to buy it and see if anything better appears on Friday, easy enough to return to argos.

If it makes you feel good, by all means talk about Tesco and ASDA, I was merely pointing out that reports to Trustpilot have recently been more than usually negative, and whilst I agree wholeheartedly that Aldi is a croc o'sh1t, I had defended the reputation of Medion who's Customer Service is first class.
...Their products ain't too shabby either!;)

I'll admit this was a while back but I bought a Medion pc from Aldi, the graphics card had a problem. They sent someone to my house to change the graphics card. Certainly couldn't fault the customer service there

p.s. Heat added and bought :-) Worth trying the quidco even if it doesn't pay out, I'm hoping it does as currys are also doing a deal on Medion pcs for 10% off so you never know.

This laptop was £1049.99 last month

Will do, but delivery is 1-5 days away. So won't be able to give anything worthwhile until the deal is gone.

That's not from the Argos website, and as I have shown there are X7847 models that have TN screens. So you can't be sure which screen this one has. Great if it is IPS, but you can't be disappointed if it's TN.

The 1060 is a lot better than the 970m, but that laptop will be better overall as the median build quality is usually of a very low standard from my experience.

Silly question, can I build a better desktop for this price?

Definitely.

Remember though to factor in monitor and other peripherals If you dont have them they could add up depending on what you want.
