Nino Ricchizzi, Stefanie Voigt (vertaald door Siemon Boes), 20-01-2017

Elegante metgezel. Acer combineert de belangrijkste elementen van een subnotebook en noemt het resultaat Swift 5. Vooral het elegante, maar vertrouwde design is indrukwekkend.

Responstijd Scherm

De responstijden van het scherm tonen hoe snel het scherm in staat is om van één kleur naar de andere te veranderen. Trage responstijden kunnen aanleiding geven tot 'nabeelden' rond bewegende objecten of het scherm wazig maken (blur). Vooral spelers van snelle 3D-games hebben baat bij een scherm met snelle responstijden.
       Responstijd Zwart naar Wit
28 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 7 ms stijging
↘ 21 ms daling
Het scherm vertoonde relatief trage responstijden in onze tests en is misschien te traag voor games.
Ter vergelijking: alle testtoestellen variëren van 0.8 (minimum) tot 240 (maximum) ms. » 59 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd slechter is dan het gemiddelde (24.9 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.
       Responstijd 50% Grijs naar 80% Grijs
51 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 20 ms stijging
↘ 31 ms daling
Het scherm vertoonde trage responstijden in onze tests en is misschien te traag voor games.
Ter vergelijking: alle testtoestellen variëren van 0.9 (minimum) tot 636 (maximum) ms. » 84 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd slechter is dan het gemiddelde (39.5 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

Om de schermhelderheid te verlagen schakelen sommige laptops het backlight erg snel aan en uit. Dit gebeurt aan een dergelijk hoge frequentie dat het niet zichtbaar is voor het menselijk oog. Als de frequentie te laag is kunnen personen met gevoelige ogen geïrriteerd geraken, hoofdpijn krijgen en zelfs flickering waarnemen.
Screen flickering / PWM niet waargenomen

Ter vergelijking: 51 % van alle geteste toestellen maakten geen gebruik van PWM om de schermhelderheid te verlagen. Als het wel werd gebruikt, werd een gemiddelde van 13608 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 2500000) Hz waargenomen.

Dit is de verkorte versie van het originele artikel. Het volledige, Engelse testrapport vind je hier.

Geslaagde mix: Acer combineert een hoogwaardig design met toereikende prestaties, maar vergeet niet het belang van emissies. We waren erg tevreden met de elegante behuizing en vooral de extreem dunne schermranden. Dit is niet alles: Acer maakt gebruik van heel wat metalen elementen en weet te overtuigen met uitstekende bouwkwaliteit. Alleen het toetsenbordgedeelte is niet erg stabiel. De toetsen kunnen niet diep ingedrukt worden maar bieden voldoende feedback en zijn erg stil bij het typen. Het glanzende IPS-scherm heeft een Full-HD-resolutie en scoort prima op het vlak van zowel helderheid als contrast. De specificaties van de Swift 5 zijn erg evenwichtig en de processor kan onder belasting bijna zijn volle potentieel benutten, wat niet gezegd kan worden voor de concurrerende toestellen. Temperatuurontwikkeling is eveneens in orde voor dit prestatieniveau. Een ander belangrijk aspect voor een subnotebook is zijn batterijduur. De Swift 5 houdt het niet zo lang uit als de Dell XPS 13, maar je kan nog altijd een volledige werkdag uitzitten zonder toegang tot netstroom.

De nieuwe Acer Swift 5 combineert bijna alle belangrijke aspecten voor een subnotebook en is verkrijgbaar vanaf een relatief lage prijs van 900 euro.

Als je vaak onderweg bent, doe je er goed aan eens een kijkje te nemen bij de Dell XPS 13 9360. Dit toestel weet te overtuigen met een ontspiegeld scherm en erg lange batterijduur. Nog lichter en dunner: de concurrent van Asus voor 1500 euro.
