Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for 2018

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

I really wanted to see how Thunderobot had put more than half the world in his pocket and, to do so. It wanted to start from his humblest proposal. In computers, and especially in laptops, that comes down to its lower range but after a few weeks of fiddling with the Thunderobot ST Plus in our review, that qualifier stays miles away from what it really offers.

Adjusted in price and more than remarkable in performance, the Thunderobot ST Plus seems a worthy competitor in that market full of players who want to make the leap to the PC without complicating life too much.

A compliant laptop to which, at least today, you can throw almost anything. Let’s see the main specs of ST Plus.

Thunderobot ST Plus: Design and Appearance

If I am not too much a fan of brands specifically aimed at players, it is because, beyond what they offer inside, they usually repel me a lot.

With excessively ornate designs and a characteristic appearance of the spaceship full of lights, I would end up calling ugly almost everything that comes out on the market with the label gaming.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

Of course, the Thunderobot ST Plus in our analisis is comparable to a good 15-inch monitor. It measures at least 37.8 x 26.7 x 2.69 cm and weighs 2.37 kg.

While the angular alien spaceship look is still a matter of taste, the processing quality for a $1000 product does seem alien.

There are three USB Type A sockets on the side of the case, two of them with USB 3.0 speed. That’s enough for a mouse, a keyboard and the USB fan in the stuffy room.

But what is that? The USB Type C connector is almost out of place in the thick case.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

But he is always practical.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

So we get the five-port switch from the cabinet and connect an Ethernet cable to the notebook. There used to be no WLAN!

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

It is good that the notebook has a corresponding RJ45 socket for Gigabit Ethernet installed.

The bad news is that on that side is just where we will have most of the time the mouse that we use to play.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

Without being particularly annoying, it gives enough excuses to wish they had found another better position.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

But if it is the price to pay for having a casing that does not heat up in the least, I prefer to place the mouse pad a little further back.

Thunderobot ST Plus: Display

On the other side, we have the screen, a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS panel with 1920×1080 resolution, more than enough to have an adequate response in most games.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

Both refreshment and colors, but provided that we have placed the screen at the right angle.

Otherwise, the brightness makes a difference by offering unpleasant results, with excess or lack of it depending on whether we open or close the lid of the screen excessively.

Important but not crucial, and is that the room for maneuver is very broad and do not need to have a surgical precision in the placement to enjoy the image at 100%.

Thunderobot ST Plus: Hardware and Performance

Of all of them, there were two aspects that had me with the fly behind my ear until I could get my hands on it.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

How far I was going to limit its RAM and how its graphics would work, but the truth is that I have not had any problems with games quite current.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

In the case of wanting to make changes in the future, the guts of the laptop admit that we trustees with them.

The important thing is that, based on more or less current games, I have not had the need to do so.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

No problems with ‘GTA V’ or ‘The Witcher 3’ in ultra, where he has endured as a champion a more or less stable rate of 30 frames per second with some drops that have not passed the barrier of 25 frames.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

Surprising that, based on reducing filters and setting a medium-high quality, it could have reached 60 stable frames without problems.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

Easier still with less demanding games like ‘Heroes of the Storm’ or ‘Battlerite’, to which I have been approaching in the rests of Curro with the game in the background and have worked like a charm.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

Older titles but with a stunning visual power as the ‘Ryse’ of Crytek move like a fish in the water and, in fact, the only game with which I have had some problems to maintain a high quality has been ‘PUBG’, more for the poor optimization of the game than for what the laptop could end up taking out of it in the future.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

Of course, even though the laptop responds to what you ask, it does not do it without messing up. Your graphics will get hot and the fans will respond accordingly.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

The noise will undoubtedly be there, but at no time has it seemed annoying or disproportionate.

Thunderobot ST Plus: Keyboard and Touchpad

The important thing, in general, is that, despite the more and less that we can find the ST Plus in our review, it is a very comfortable laptop for almost any job.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

Typing in it is a joy to be your comfortable and precise keys, with a very short route but without losing the feeling of being pressing something.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

At the pleasure of each one is the configuration of lights of the same, controllable from an integrated program that allows us to highlight the keys that interest us or, if you are one of those, mount a fair at home based on lights and customizable colors.

The touchpad of Thunderobot ST Plus, on the other hand, has not left me as happy as the keyboard.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

Well for its position, but not for its response, too sensitive at times and with a block that will require you to pass your finger over a couple of times to be able to move the mouse if we are writing.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

Once again, I think that here there is more personal mania than the problem per se, even more, when for convenience I pulled more USB mouse than the touchpad, even when I was not playing, but I do recognize that it is one of the things that would change.

Thunderobot ST Plus: Battery

On the other hand, it is useful to work with, especially since the battery of the Thunderobot ST Plus is unusually enduring for this device class.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

We come in PCMark 8 with the default Home Conventional at a display brightness of 200 cd/m2 for at least 3 hours and 25 minutes running time.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

By comparison, the Dell XPS 13 comes in the same benchmark but 150 cd/m2 brightness – 4 hours and 53 minutes.

Thunderobot ST Plus: Conclusions and Reviews

Thunderobot has proven to be a brand to be taken into account from now on, and if this is what its lower range can offer, I do not want to think about the joys that it can deliver in more powerful teams.

Thunderobot ST Plus Review: Strong Gaming Laptop for Low Price 2018

A few days with the Thunderobot ST Plus in our review are more than enough to understand how the Asian brand has built the reputation with which it reaches our country.

Maybe in that tight price, we lose aspects like a RAM more prepared for the future that awaits us, and that its small size ends up weighing the possibility of having a more promising screen but, overall, I think a bet with a value for money applauded.

For its performance, design, and features, the Thunderobot ST Plus is a fantastic team for those who want to have a laptop with which to squeeze their games without worrying about having to mess too much with graphics configurations.

It is not excellent at all levels, but it is more than remarkable in everything that, with several options on the shelf, will make us opt for a good laptop to play.
