I had 2 major issues with gigabyte laptop : 1 compatibility of win11 android subsystem and gigabyte control center 2 the build in keyboard issues including 2.1 stopped working suddenly and couldn't be recognized even after reinstall win11 or factory reset 2.2 RGB color settings in control center couldn't be memorized.

If you are facing above issue, go reddit forum to find potential solutions may or may not work in your case.

I had no idea the dead keyboard thing was "a thing". I have that on my Lenovo right now which i bought less than two years ago. Works great with a usb keyboard. Is there no fix?

Try Google : Device Descriptor Request Failed (Unknown USB device)

But you never know which solution works

Decent specs, at least on paper. My local shop had an HP envy 15 with this GPU and a 4K OLED display but 11th gen chip for $1660, this is a far better deal IMO.

Had mixed experiences with gigabyte motherboards, but can't speak to their laptops. I'd shy away myself, based on some reviews.

I have the same one and I'm very happy with it for the price we paid. It took me a while to figure out the control center issue but after that it's been great

Is the Ram solderless? Also two 2280 SSD slots or just one?

I have the same laptop. RGB was annoying as hell but my biggest issue was the charging port wasn't soldered properly. I won't do gigabyte again but a good deal is a good deal

I got this laptop a couple of days ago and love it! Thermals aren't amazing but for this price I think it is amazing. I originally bought the Legion 5 from Costco but returned that and got this.

Interested to know your thoughts and comps. How are the screens.. apparently battery life on this gigabyte is brutal.
