Hi, I just got my brand new Crawler E10 today and can confirm the fan relentlessly stops and starts under every day load such as scrolling Chrome. Whilst this laptop does come with a 'custom' option for plotting your own curve, the CPU fan is locked to a 45 degree trigger point which cannot be modified at all (up or down); rendering this feature useless at remedying the nuisance. Honestly, I really would rather the fan always be on - it's not even loud at lower temps. Super super frustrating having it stop and start every 30 seconds, and no doubt will lead to more wear and tear on the hardware. I hope this helps.

Hi all, I received my brand new Medion Crawler E10 today, set everything up and popped it away for after work. When I got around to using it properly, I decided to give the speakers a whirl with some music since they bragged about 'being in the game realism' in the promo material. Unfortunately, the audio quality was horrific. Literally no bass, just horrible tinny audio like something out of a £200 laptop. This was quite surprising to me, and I wanted to check if it's a fault with the item - if it's not, then oh well, it is what it is. That's what you get for believing the marketing. To clarify, this isn't from a lack of knowing what to expect - my last gaming laptop (Acer V Nitro) also had an internal subwoofer which sounded incredible. Before coming here, I did the usual; checked drivers and ran a scan with windows update. The update did find something to do with Realtek which I hoped would fix things up, however, there was no change upon a restart - my sub lacks woof. I am starting to think it's a faulty unit as there are only the left & right speakers showing in the Realtek controller: To add; in the Medion control centre, there is only keyboard back lighting, macros, fan speed and power modes. No option to tweak the audio. Interestingly there is also no sign of Dolby Audio software installed on my laptop. I really hope I'm just missing the trick here, but that's likely wishful thinking and I'm probably in for a returns claim. Can anyone shed some light on this, or has anyone else experienced this with this model? Ta
