Pros

  • Excellent gaming performance
  • 3D Vision is cool when it works

Cons

  • The display has severe viewing-angle issues
  • Extremely heavy and bulky for a 15-inch display

At A Glance

If 3D Vision stereoscopic games and movies appeal to you, the Clevo W850CU is worth a look, but the bulk, LCD viewing-angle issues, and price are barriers.
