Hello. I have a question about the new Swift X14 14.5". Not the 4050 RTX version, but the 3050 RTX version listed below. Model SFX14-71G-5911.

The page describes the screen as "LCD" with
"In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology; Acer ComfyView"

Is this screen matte or glossy? Thx

    Secondly, multiple reviewers say the fans are almost always on and audible on this new model. Is this true? Anyone have experience with the fans and making the fan quiet/off during light activities like web browsing and netfliX?

    There are two different displays offered on the various models:

    I believe the model you are looking at uses the first of those screen options. They don't mention the screen surface, but in the FRU list they state non glare. For the fans, there are three different tables, Silent Mode, Normal Mode and Performance Mode. Needless to say, the noise is going to be dependent on the mode, since the speed the fan is running determines the noise produced.

    Thanks. Would be nice to have confirmation on matte screen for certain. And more thoughts on those fans, which even on silent apparently are always on and noisy.

    I suggest you download HWINFO freeware and click on monitor to find the brand and panel code number.

    Either you Google Brand and panel code or enter it directly in:
    https://www.panelook.com

    You will find everything about your screen, including Matte or Glossy and what the ani-glare % coating is. 😉

    They are correct that the fan is always running when the laptop is turned on. That's normal for laptops and most desktops. The speeds are minimum 1860 RPM, maximum 4620 RPM with different CPU temperature ranges for increasing in steps based on the mode you are in.

    Thanks. I think the problem is that the fan is always running and quite audible even on light tasks like web browsing, that's what two reviewers said.
