Recensione breve del Portatile Asus VivoBook S14 S406UA (i5-8250U, SSD, HD)

Sascha Mölck (traduzione a cura di G. De Luca), 01/30/2018

Deficit nel rapporto prezo-prestazioni. L'Asus VivoBook S14 S406UA delizia con un case leggero e sottile, una cover del display sottile, una tastiera illuminata ed una ottima autonomia. Lo schermo ed il case però mostrano anche dei punti deboli.

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 detected 200 Hz ≤ 90 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 200 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 90 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 200 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 54 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 10377 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 588200) Hz was measured.

Tempi di risposta del Display

I tempi di risposta del display mostrano quanto sia veloce lo schermo a cambaire da un colore all'altro. Tempi di risposta lenti poccono creare sovrapposizioni negloi oggetti in movimento. Specialmente i giocatori patiti del 3D dovrebbero usare uno schermo con rempi di risposta bassi.
       Tempi di risposta dal Nero al Bianco
13 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7 ms Incremento
↘ 6 ms Calo
Lo schermo mostra buoni tempi di risposta durante i nostri tests, ma potrebbe essere troppo lento per i gamers competitivi.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 8 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (26.2 ms).
       Tempo di risposta dal 50% Grigio all'80% Grigio
42 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22 ms Incremento

Lo schermo mostra tempi di risposta lenti nei nostri tests e sarà insoddisfacente per i gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 52 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (41.9 ms).

Con il Vivobook S14, Asus lancia un portatile da ufficio con display da 14", ma ha le dimensioni di un portatile da 13.3". Pertanto, il dispositivo appare sottile e compatto. Il case si dimostra la parte debole del dispositivo: la plastica si flette molto e cede facilmente alle torsioni - una pecca inaccettabile per un dispositivo che è destinato all'utilizzo mobile.

Il portatile sfrutta un processore ULV quad-core, che offre prestazioni più che adeguate per lavori da ufficio e nagivazione web. Se sia necessario o meno un processore quad-core per il VivoBook, saranno i clienti a deciderlo. Tuttavia, per molti acquirenti, un modello più economico VivoBook, che ha una Intel Core i3-7100U, dovrebbe fornire prestazioni sufficienti.

Il VivoBook S14 S406UA ha solo una pecca, ma sembra grave per un dispositivo di questo prezzo.

Lo schermo rappresenta il punto debole del dispositivo. Asus ha usato un pannello HD con luminosità e contrasto bassi ed angoli di visuale stretti. Il display non è tanto adeguato per un prezzo di 900-Euro (~$1115) . Uno schermo IPS luminoso e con contrasto elevato è un must per dispositivi di questo livello di prezzo.

Le altre pecche riguardano le porte. Asus avrebbe dovuto implementare una porta Thunderbolt 3 invece di una posta USB 3.1 (Gen 1) Type-C, il che avrebbe migliorato la produttività- Inoltre tale porta ce la sia aspetta da dispositivi di questo prezzo.

Un veloce SSD rende il sistema reattivo. La tastiera ha fatto una buona impressione ed è adatta a chi scrive molto. Un aspetto positio: ha la retroilluminazione. L'autonomia è molto buona. Coloro che possono passare sui problemi appena citati, avranno un portatile compatto adatto alla scrittura ed alla navigazione web, il che richiede un esborso non da poco.

Nota: si tratta di una recensione breve, con alcune sezioni non tradotte, per la versione integrale in inglese guardate qui.
