Test: XIDU PhilBook Max - Mörk skärm och låg prestanda (Sammanfattning)

Andreas Osthoff, 👁 Andreas Osthoff (översatt av Daniel Eriksson), 10/07/2019

För dyr. PhilBook Max är en omvandlingsbar på 14.1 tum som kostar straxt över 4.000 kronor. Utrustningen är okej, men XIDU förlitar sig tyvärr på en mörk skärm och en långsam Celeron-processor.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
28.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 12.4 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 67 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
38.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20.4 ms rise
↘ 18 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 40 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (39.7 ms).

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 25000 Hz ≤ 20 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 25000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 20 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 25000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9361 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

XIDU PhilBook Max går för tillfället att köpa för runt 4.000 kronor. Denna omvandlingsbara på 14.1 tum kommer med ett tjusigt hölje, praktiska inmatningsenheter och de flesta viktiga anslutningarna. Men den har två stora svagheter i form av skärmen och prestandan. Även om det är en IPS-skärm med ganska skaplig bildåtergivning är den väldigt mörk. Tillsammans med en reflekterande skärmyta går den knappt att använda utomhus eller i ljusa rum.

När det kommer till prestanda är det också viktigt att vara tydlig med att uppgifterna man utför inte får vara för krävande. När du installerar eller uppdaterar är enheten fullt belastad, så du kan glömma multitasking.

Låg prestanda och en mörk skärm: PhilBook Max har en del positiva egenskaper, men prestandan är ofta den begränsande faktorn. Här erbjuder konkurrenterna helt enkelt mer.

I vårt tycke är priset på straxt över 4.000 kronor fortfarande för högt. I synnerhet har Chuwi bättre erbjudanden i det här segmentet som till och med kostar mindre.
