What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good features, lightweight but not durable. I bought this laptop in May 2020 from Costco. Overall its a descent laptop with good features but it feels cheaply built. They definitely sacrificed on quality in order to achieve lower weight. Pros: I was happy with the battery life, 16:10 display, functionality of the laptop, 17" laptop that i can easily use on the go. Cons: speaker is awful, keyboard and touchpad feel weird after extended use and the screen easily gets keyboard marks on it so need to carry foam padding. On top of that it feels cheaply built. Now i cant seem to find how and where i can fix it without losing warranty. The lid on my laptop broke in half as I was closing it while my textbook was in its way. If only the screen was affected then it would be somewhat understandable. In the worst case scenario if it was a cheaply made LCD screen I wouldnt be surprised if the screen got damaged. BUT on top of that the LID BREAKING IN HALF?!? REALLY!? When i was in the market for a laptop I wanted to buy a laptop that I could use on the go, be on the higher end in functionality and which would last me at least 2-3 years. Before buying this model my main concern was the durability of this Ultra Thin laptop. I hesitated on buying it as I was wondering if LG had to forgo on quality in order to be "The lightest 17" inch laptop" in the world. Costco's extended warranty convinced me to give it a try. On top of that i have multiple LG products at home and was somewhat OKay with them. I typed this comment from my LG G8X ThinQ phone. Now i start questioning the quality of this brand. I have to give credit to LG where the credit is due. It is the lightest laptop in the world and now my backpack is 3 pounds lighter as i dont need to carry this laptop anymore. Thanks. Apparently with LG "Life's [not so] good"...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite laptop ever! I am an APPLE addict. I have everything that APPLE makes and love it. But my work uses all PC's so I always need to have at least one PC computer. I have had my 17 inch LG GRAM for about 2 years now and I LOVE it! I recommend it to all my friends. It is the best laptop I have ever had, and I get a new laptop every three years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Replacement Battery & Accessories Hard To Find I purchased this this through Costco about a year ago and I must say it has handled everything I’ve thrown at it without hesitation. I use it strictly to work remotely and I’m on it 6 days a week. For the first 9 to 10 months I had it connected to two other monitors through the thunderbolt port. It worked great and the battery lasted most of the day. I truly have no complaints other then LG doesn’t seem to have a one-stop shop for replacement batteries or accessories for this laptop. I’ve only found some vague references from questionable websites for possible battery matches for LG grams other then the 17 inch model. I also wanted a second power adapter because I move around the house so much but once again there is no clear option for the right duplicate cord. I’ve waisted so much time looking for these things that I don’t think I would buy another one or recommend it to anyone because I don’t want to have to go through this again. The one place LG recommend for parts support didn’t recognize the model of the laptop or any laptop for that matter. My lesson learned is to make sure the item you buy has plentiful parts and accessories available at a moment’s notice.

What docking ports are compatible with the Gram that will provide charging over the USB-C? I have a LG HDR WFHD monitor connected to the Gram but the resolution is radically different - is there a more compatible monitor to use?

Asked by: cosmicsteve
Regrettably, we do not have a list of compatible docking ports for the LG gram 17” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 17Z990-R.AAS8U1 nor a list for compatible monitors to use with it. The laptop supports USB PD (Power Delivery) through its Thunderbolt™ 3 port and can be charged with a portable power bank or a Type-C Power adapter that also supports USB PD. The GPU in the Laptop is the Intel® UHD Graphics 620. We are not clear about the resolution being radically different for the LG HDR WFHD monitor that you have connected to the laptop. What is the model number for the monitor and what is it's native resolution? ^IV
