Reviews for the Eurocom Electra

60% Eurocom Electra (Clevo W560SR) Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Eurocom Electra W560SR presents a mixed value; on the upside it has a gorgeous 1080p IPS display; excellent overall performance; multiple storage drive options; plenty of ports; reasonable battery life and finally a good touchpad. The downsides are centered and the build and design; the overall quality is far below what we'd expect even at this notebook's starting price. The plastics used throughout the chassis are thin and cheap feeling; the keyboard suffers from the same problems. There's a general lack of any features such as nice-sounding speakers and design accents; it's as barebones as the cheapest consumer notebooks. Combine all this with the fact that even in its basic configuration the W560SR is outperformed by competing mainstream notebooks from HP and Dell at the same price point or less. The W560SR is held above water by its display - and for the price of our test unit, that can be had in a competing notebook along with a lot more features.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4700MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Eurocom: Eurocom (founded: October 1988) is a UK-based video game developer founded specifically to develop games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Later, Eurocom has expanded to other platforms and also sells laptops with own brand. The official location of the company is in Canada. According laptops, Eurocom focusses desktop replacement laptops for the sell regions Anglo-America and UK.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
