Reviews for the Eurocom Shark 3

76% Eurocom Shark 3 (Clevo W355SS) Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Eurocom Shark 3 (Clevo W355SS chassis) is a solid if not terribly exciting 15.6-inch gaming notebook. It has a no-frills design as expected from a Clevo chassis; the plastic exterior is bested by other brands that market more on design like Alienware. That aside the Shark 3 ticks all the right boxes to get our recommendation. We liked its colorful 1080p anti-glare display, excellent overall performance for all tasks including the latest games, good keyboard and touchpad, plentiful port selection, great battery life for a desktop replacement and reasonable starting price. The build quality could be stronger but it’s passable if an attractive design isn’t paramount. The chassis is thicker than a typical 15.6-inch notebook at 1.68 inches but with the benefit of improved cooling and upgrade options; it’s still relatively light however (5.95 lbs)

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

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.  


4940MX: Mobile quad-core processor based on the Haswell architecture. Fastest CPU in Q1/2014 with an unlocked multiplier.» 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.


2.7 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.


76%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
