3 out of 5 eggsGood performance laptop

Pros: Great speeds, great airflow/cooling (vents out the back!), great gaming. 750GB HDD works perfectly for people like me that use up lots of space.

Cons: Poor adapter design (awkward angle of plugging in, tends to fall out sometimes), a bit heavy (expected of a gaming laptop), and mouse-pad location/sensitivity takes some getting used too. Hard drive also comes pre-partitioned (which can be a pain if you only want a single drive, and are a noob with computers). Underclocked i7 also doesn't perform amazingly in older games which only use two cores, and take no advantage of the hyper-threading.

Other Thoughts: Pretty decent overall, price is a bit over-done I believe. I'd value this more around $1200 than $1500 for the performance overall. Underclocked i7 can be a pain when running older games optimized for dual-core, thus leaving 6 cores completely empty and straining two underclocked cores.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Sorry to hear that the adapter comes out unexpectedly sometimes. If this is happening more often, I suggest you send the unit in for service. If your unit is still within the return policy with newegg I suggest you exchange it for another.

Regarding about the sensitivity, you can change it to you liking by going to the white up arrow key on the lower right and double clicking the track pad icon. There you will be able to change the sensitivity.

If you have any questions or comments you can email me at cl-jeffrey@asus.com which I reside in the U.S

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: Cant complain about gaming performance its great.

Cons: Came shipped with a bad keyboard. 8,I, and K all type random characters when pressed. Installed Skype first thing to make a call and there is a horribly annoying high pitched whine that the other person hears coming from the built in microphone. Did some reading and it seems many models of Asus laptops have this exact same problem and Asus denies any "known" problem on the issue. They suggested doing a restore of the built in recovery... Did not fix the problem obviously since the computer was only used for like 30mins untill this problem was realized. It seems its a problem with the cpu and how it handles power when idle. Theres a registry fix that i tried that works perfectly but turns off cpu idle power management so therefor it will make the computer run hotter and fans run more constant, In turn lowering the life of the computer more than likely. Going to RMA it back now and see if they fix the sound issue but judging from what ive read on other models this will not happen. $1500 laptop and if this problem is not resolved my business will no longer be selling Asus products. I will post back with my results in a few weeks.

Other Thoughts: For $1500 you think they would have at least checked the keyboard before shipping it out.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Sorry to hear that you had a problem with the keyboard and the factory restore did not work either. Here is a link below where you can get support for your gaming laptop. If your unit is still under the return policy with newegg you should have it exchanged for another.

http://support.asus.com/knowledge.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=3&s=252&m=G55VW&os=&hashedid=3yWw7QOsOfFxPNjq

You can go under utilities and try downloading the keyboard device filter to see if that resolves your issue as well.

If you have any questions or comments you can email me at cl-jeffrey@asus.com which I reside in the U.S

5 out of 5 eggsGood Gaming Laptop

Pros: The venting system is really good. Rarely gets as hot as most laptops when playing games on higher settings. Full keyboard is nice. The standby instant on feature is great.

Cons: Battery life is ~3 hours on saver mode, which is expected but still very low. Keyboard has SERIOUS ghosting issues.

Other Thoughts: Could use an option to buy one with an SSD. The manual is pretty minimalistic in terms of specs and details. Has some bloatware, but very little compared to other brands.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 15inch Laptop

Pros: As for mid 2012, this is the BEST of them ALL except purchasing from Customized - Specialty Vendors.
Even if not gaming this will last because ASUS makes craftmanship-quality build with their G55 and G75 series.
Keyboard with Numeric keypad is reinforced for the heavy gamer or user. Great Sound (2.1) and Best Cooling without using a cooling tray underneath it. There are only 2 other Brand names within the Price Range ($1500) that are worth looking at are Levono and MSI.

Cons: Dimensionally thicker and weighs appoximently 2 lbs more than most notebooks/laptops. Doesn't have the 90% gamut Glossy screen or Blu-ray optical drive.
May find having 4- USB 3.0 ports troublesome if in need of USB1.1 support. NO Car Charger --- which cost at least $100 or more. Battery life is okay, if gaming best to leave plugged in. Need to calibrate Mouse.

Other Thoughts: ASUS has out done themselfs. The G55VW series and G75VW - DS 71, 72 and 73 are phenomenal. Yes a bit pricey but you're getting the best deal when you compare it to other mfgr brand names. Only way to beat
it is to self build your own or get a Customization place to do it and spend $2000 - $3000 or more.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm realy happy with this laptop

Pros: Quiet. I really, really like the construction of the chassis and the quality of the screen. Quiet.
Runs great as long as you immediately gank the spindle-based hard drive out of it and replace it with a much faster type with no moving parts.

Cons: Very few cons. BIOS does not acknowledge the Samsung 256 gig SSD that I put into it, which cost me about a day of troubleshooting, firmware flashing, etc. before I discovered that it didn't matter, and that I could just install the SSD, install an O/S to it, and it would boot fine.

Other Thoughts: The backpack that (currently) comes with it is worth having, reasonably well-constructed, and no obnoxious logos.
Have not used this model for gaming. Am just a power user and want a machine that can keep up.
