Like a Dell XPS 17, But Worse: LG Ultra 17 Laptop Review

Ultra mediocre. Do you want to spend $1400 USD for a 17-inch laptop with slow Core i5 performance, no AdobeRGB coverage, and no Thunderbolt 3? This overpriced LG Ultra 17 is unique but in all the wrong ways.

LG laptops typically maximize portability at the cost of performance. The Gram series, for example, is home to some of the lightest Ultrabooks you can find with Core U-series options, but processor performance would be significantly slower than most other laptops equipped with the same CPU.

The Ultra 17 can be viewed as a Gram 17 laptop but with faster dedicated GeForce GTX 1650 graphics. Its chassis is larger, heavier, and different than a Gram, but there are many similarities nonetheless. In fact, this is one of the few (if not only) 17.0-inch 16:10 laptops to pair a U-series Core i5-10210U or Core i7-10510U CPU with a full-power GTX 1650. Our Core i5 test unit can be found online for approximately $1400 USD retail.

Competitors in this space include other 17-inch multimedia systems like the Dell XPS 17, HP Envy 17, Gigabyte Aorus 17, or the Asus VivoBook 17.

Case

It may not have "Gram" in its name, but the Ultra 17 still shares the same lightweight gray aluminum materials as all of its siblings. On one hand, this is great because the slightly roughened matte surfaces detract fingerprints better than the aluminum materials used for the Razer Blade or HP Spectre. On the other hand, this also means that the Ultra 17 suffers from many of the same drawbacks as the Gram series including the flimsy lid and muted visual design. The base is at least more rigid than on the Gram 17 due to the increased thickness and there is thankfully only minimal creaking despite the flexible lid.

At almost 2 kg, the Ultra 17 is significantly heavier than the 1.4 kg Gram 17. The longer length and thicker profile also explain why this is an "Ultra 17" and not just another Gram laptop. Even so, this is one of the lightest 17-inch laptops you can find with the GTX 1650 GPU especially when considering that the XPS 17 is a full 500 grams heavier.

Connectivity

Port options are similar to the Gram 17 but with two major differences. Firstly, the Ultra 17 integrates an RJ-45 port likely because of its slightly thicker profile. Secondly, it unfortunately does not support Thunderbolt 3 despite the hefty price tag. This is likely because the Gram 17 is running on Ice Lake while the Ultra 17 is using Comet Lake-U.

SD Card Reader

Transfer rates from the integrated MicroSD reader are the same as on the Gram 17. Moving 1 GB of pictures from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 14 seconds compared to under half that on the XPS 17.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by ten screws plus one on the very center under an anti-tamper sticker. We elected to honor the warranty, but it's still disappointing nonetheless for users who just want to upgrade RAM or storage. RAM is upgradeable and not soldered, but we cannot identify if there are any internal secondary storage options.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and paperwork. The standard one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies.

Input Devices

Keyboard

Keyboard layout is different from the Gram 17. The key caps themselves are slightly smaller and rounder while the Arrow keys are now full-size. For a 17-inch form factor, however, we find key travel to be too shallow and the resulting feedback too weak. Deeper keys would have gone a long way here to improving the typing experience.

Touchpad

The Precision clickpad is much smaller than the one on the Dell XPS 17 (12 x 7.9 cm vs. 15.1 x 9 cm). Its surface is smoother than on most other clickpads with just a bit of sticking only when gliding at very slow speeds. Cursor control works well enough, but the integrated mouse buttons are spongy and difficult to depress for a poor experience especially when dragging and dropping. For such a large form factor, it's too bad that LG decided to not include dedicated mouse buttons.

Display

As most of us probably expected, the Ultra 17 uses the same LG LP170WQ1-SPA1 IPS panel as found on the Gram 17 for a similar visual experience between the two systems. Display quality is excellent even though it's a step or two down in brightness and colors from the even better Sharp panel on the XPS 17. LG has always had great laptop panels, but the drawback here is that the Ultra 17 comes only in glossy.

If you intend on running games, keep in mind that black-white response times are average for noticeable ghosting when playing fast-moving titles like Rocket League or Overwatch. Slower-paced games like DOTA 2 aren't as distracting in this regard.

X-Rite colorimeter measurements reveal the display to be better calibrated than the Gram 17 even though both are using the same 17-inch IPS panels. Average grayscale and ColorChecker deltaE values sit at just 2.9 and 2.42, respectively, with color temperature being slightly too cool. Calibrating the panel further ourselves addresses these concerns.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
28.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 12 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 66 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
41.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22.4 ms rise
↘ 18.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 54 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9668 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

The display is just as bright as the Envy 17 but still dimmer than the XPS 17. Glare will almost always be present to some degree because of the glossy panel.

Maximum brightness automatically drops from 415 nits when on mains to 354 nits when on battery power. Changing settings on Intel Command Center or Nvidia Control Panel would have no effect.

Performance

Unlike most other GeForce GTX-powered laptops, the Ultra 17 pairs a Core U-series CPU with a GeForce GTX GPU. Users can choose between the 10th gen Core i5-10210U or Core i7-10510U to run alongside the full-power (non-Max-Q) GTX 1650. Optimus is included for automatic graphics switching.

We had set the system to High Performance mode prior to running any performance tests below for the highest possible scores.

Processor

Raw CPU performance is disappointing much like what we observed on the Gram series. The Core i5-10210U in our Ultra 17 is 15 to 25 percent slower in multi-threaded workloads than the average laptop in our database equipped with the exact same processor.  Poor Turbo Boost performance is to blame here which we will go into more detail in our Stress Test section below. We can't speak for the Core i7-10510U configuration, but it will likely perform below average as well based on our experience with other laptops from LG.

See our dedicated page on the Core i5-10210U for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

Storage Devices

LG laptops come with either Samsung or SK Hynix SSDs. In our case, the system shipped with the Samsung PM981a to offer some of the fastest read and write rates of any consumer NVMe drive. Strangely, it takes a while for the SSD to reach its full potential on the Ultra 17 as shown by our DiskSpd loop test below.

GPU Performance

3DMark results are where we expect them to be relative to other laptops with the same GTX 1650 GPU. Results are consistently slower than the average by a few percentage points due to the U-series CPU, however, since most other laptops with GTX GPUs are typically paired with H-series CPUs instead. Gaming performance is otherwise not all that much slower or even the same as many budget Core H-series laptops since most games are GPU bound.

See our dedicated page on the mobile GeForce GTX 1650 for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

Emissions

System Noise

The fan is mostly silent when the iGPU is active with a range between 27 to 31 dB(A) when browsing the web or emailing. If the dGPU is active, this can jump to as high as 35 dB(A) and so we recommend exploiting Optimus to keep fan noise to a minimum and reduce pulsing.

Running Witcher 3 will induce a steady fan noise of 45 dB(A) to be close to many gaming laptops. The XPS 17 is louder still, but it is also much more powerful. We can notice no electronic noise or coil whine on our unit.

Temperature

Surface temperatures are flat when idling on desktop but they will warm up quickly to over 47 C when running games. The Gram 17 exhibited similar temperature ranges despite the Ultra 17 being the much faster system. Hot spots are toward the center of the keyboard and away from the front quadrants.
