This is going to be the short version as I just finish setting up the V. So far I love how it looks and the feel to it. The unboxing was nice and neat and shipped very well in the box.
The computer is sturdy and feel like a premium item which I like. Windows Hello and the power button is fine, no issue with it so far.
The keyboard, like many of the users have stated, that the lighting is off or not bright in the middle. I think for next time, the lettering should use a clearer plastic so that the light can pass through better. I can tell that the keys are different where the F1-12 keys are raised more which allow for the LED to be seen when looking from a 45 degree angle but the keys are space tightly and lower to the fabric which let less light to be seen unless you are looking at it lower.
The monitor is just perfect and bright and I have no issue with the touch screen but the pen is something that I almost broke. When I try to remove the paper from the pen, I didn’t know the spring would come off and as I pull on the paper, the spring pop out and almost lost it. Lucky after look around my floor for a while, it was found and place back. So be careful.
Now for my setup. I am running it with an Mantiz eGPU with an MSI RX 580 Gaming X GPU and 2 4K monitors. The setup in the beginning slow down the computer as I was setting up the monitor but after it was setup, so far no issues. I got both my monitor running at full 4k resolution with the V also running on the side. I can safely say, it is awesome to finally my 4K monitor going as they been sitting for a month.
Here are a few simple bench marks I gotten so far.
CPU - using Geekbench i7
Single-Core Score - 4029
Multi-Core Score - 7046
MSI RX 580 Gaming X - Geekbench
OpenCL Score - 122945
Intel HD Graphics 615 - Geekbench
OpenCL Score - 18701
So far I notice a few things, where the ram is only running at 932MHz and the CPU is 1.60 GHz with a max of 3.59GHz
I will write more once I use it more, but so far, Thunderbolt 3 is working fine with a little hiccup but I think it is due to my equipment which I may replace soon. Just running the V for far for about 2 hours, it is a little warm in the back but it should be fine for now. Will write more once I use it longer over the weekend.
