Question Anyone know about Sager?

What do you guys know about this company? Are they good, reliable, and trustworthy or are they a bad company full of bugs and hardware issues?

My long, round-about introduction:
Hey everyone! I'm new here and hoping to get some good info on this. I am looking at buying a new laptop very soon. It will be a gaming laptop (and of course used for college... but really gaming). Before anyone suggests it, no I do not want to build a desktop, even though I know they are cheaper, and also, no I do not want any Apple device.

I started looking at your general Dell's, HP's, and the like. I decided now that I do not want an off the shelf model. Also, I do not really trust the company's Lenovo, Acer, MSI, and, after some research, HP.

So I decided to look for some ASUS laptops that would have want I want. During the process of finding sites that let me customize and ASUS, I stumbled upon a company called Sager. From what I saw, their build looked very good and the prices seemed very fair. I researched them a bit and they seem to be a good company but I would like more feedback.

I know Sager used to be good but it has been a while since I checked into them.

Asus makes great gaming laptops. Lenovo's are good but not really gaming machines.

Toshiba, its higher end, is made for gaming as well.

I do like the ASUS gaming laptops but the G- series are incredibly bulky. Since I need it for college as well, I am trying to find something else. I looked at other ASUS computers, mainly the U- and N- series but the best graphics cards
I can find with them are the NVIDIA 540m which only has 1GB of VRAM and I was told it has trouble working at over 20fps.

That's why I have been looking at the Sager's (or Clevos since that is what they really are...)
