So I installed v1.1 Drivers, restart my V. I opened Utility tool and loaded distortion profile. Here are my results:
Distortion is still there but the speakers seems to be quieter then before. I’m going to be believe that this is not software issue, but hardware. There are some small issues with my V that can’t be repair by an update. This is our compromise. We bought devices from start-up company with dead-line pressure so there have to be some issues.
After I decided to buy something smaller than laptop (like SP4) I was very happy with this project. So many benefits over SP4, many ports, better display (little), QUAD F**G SPEKARERS and AMP, good price. It was so rational choice over SP4. But when Surface Pro (2017) was released my “hype” for V has been lowered. SP is very good device and after I bought SP4 m3 for my wife I was pretty sure that this device is solid peace of work.
Now I’ve been using V since HEB and I’m sure, that I need device like this, with this kind of mobility and size. But I’m wondering is my choice of V was a good one. You all are happy that V speakers after software Update sounds better, but let’s be honest, there are still a joke, not this that was promised. Maybe one day AMP will work, maybe.
I’m happy with V as my daily device, but only with this mobility, battery life is quite good (especially after 2h battery life on my Lenovo Y510P). I’m using V almost all day long and I have to face all this small issues every day. I’m trying to listing to music (coz my friend from work with my old Y510p with great speakers is sick) but every time my Windows wants something from me I hear distortion. So I have to jump from 40% of volume (where there is no distortion) and 100% that is pumping this flat music outside of me. Maybe I should also keeps my hands over speakers to direct sound to me? And also this sound of keyboard, as TERO from support wrote to me: keyboard rattles a bit. Yeeees, a bit. But when I write something longer, like this post, it is also frustrating, especially when some keys are not responding when they are pressed and I have to go back and correct a mistake.
I’m happy with this kind of device, but now I am not happy as a V owner. I quite tired of fighting, updating, writing to support that answer quite slow. I should pack my V, send it back to China and wait and believe that this is only me device with all this ease-to-fix, “software issues” and they will sent me new one, with no issues. But they wont, they count every V. They promised me a quality device, but V is not finished, not polished device. Maybe I also regret that I didn’t buy Surface Pro 2017 or 13 inch Surface Book. I don’t know. I am tired of this. And I look on media keys (F1-F12) and I see those leds… ehhh… I am tired.
