3 out of 5 eggsI like ASUS, but...

Pros: It's a beautiful piece, nice specs and all for the price, but...

Cons: After about three months, every few minutes, it would lose connection to the server and block me out from my list of network connections, only returning to normal after a restart. At first, I thought it had to do with the wireless in my specific locale, but I tried other places, and the same thing happens everywhere I go. I think it's the wireless adapter, but I'm not sure, probably a manufacture defect. I plan on contacting New Egg about it and/or ASUS to get this issue solved and make use of my warranty if I have to.

Other Thoughts: I still like it, and would like to get it fixed.

Oh, and Windows 8 takes some getting used to...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with the laptop's wireless card. If I may, I would like to help. Have you downloaded and installed the laptop's latest wireless driver yet? Installing the wireless driver for the computer should fix the issues with the wireless card. You can find this driver along with any other driver your computer needs on the ASUS support site. Should you need further assistance, please let me know. My email is cl-mark@asus.com. I am sure everything will be in working order shortly.

Regards,

Mark

5 out of 5 eggsVery good machines

Pros: Cheap price and come with warranty.

Cons: just a bit heavy, but what do you expect a 15.6" screen. one more thing the Window 8 is make you buy a touch screen notebook is easier to operate.

Other Thoughts: The machines is perfect.

1 out of 5 eggs4 Months of use

Pros: Very competitive pricing

Cons: First there was an update issue.. As soon I turned the laptop ON there was a Windows 8 and ASUS software update (ALL THE TIME)
After 4 months of using this laptop the screen went black. I CANT DO ANYTHING. I TRIED THE FN KEYS, ECS, ALT-CTRL-DEL but still a BLACK SCREEN

Other Thoughts: I have own quite a few of ASUS products. From laptops, motherboards and graphics cards. This is the first time I encountered a problem with their products.
Time to test their costumer support.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings JCP,

I am sorry to hear that you are having an issue with your screen not turning on after only 4 months of use. I would hope after I make a purchase, the device would last years to come and not have issues in such a short time. According to your review, it does look that you did decent job troubleshooting the issue; however, there are some other troubleshooting steps we can try to fix the issue.

I am not sure if you contacted customer support yet, but I would be happy to continue to troubleshoot the issue. Just send me an email at cl-mark@asus.com.

Best regards,
Mark

1 out of 5 eggsSATA I only

Pros: OK for the price

Cons: This is a big one for me, the SATA controller is only level I
should be SATA III, I wanted a great low cost machine which could be upgraded to a SATA III SSD. Nope.

Other Thoughts: To ASUS - Enable SATA III, even on lower level laptops and I might buy your products.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid, when usable

Pros: Good specs, at a very reasonable price. Computer performance has been fine.

Cons: Mouse pad responsiveness absolutely UNRELIABLE and UNACCEPTABLE. Too often, especially when the computer has been sleeping, when controlling the cursor through the laptop mouse pad the cursor will be so jumpy and erratic that it becomes impossible to point and click on anything, making the computer unusable!

I sent this back to ASUS and they returned it claiming that they had identified the problem and fixed it (I think all they did was reset the computer and reinstall the software, which I had already done) but it was just as bad if not worse than before. I am sending this back a second time but my hope of them fixing the problem is dim. Rather than continue to go through the headache I will probably just use a USB mouse instead, it works perfectly then. Still, unacceptable, come on ASUS!!

Other Thoughts: Windows 8 is underwhelming; unless you have a touch-screen device I see no point to the windows tile pane start screen.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Here is a link that may resolve the erratic cursor issue.

http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=3&m=K55A

Just update the bios and drivers.

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

ASUS strives to meet and exceeds our customer expectations within our warranty policy.

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid

Pros: Got the computer for my other half for Xmas. The computer is great for the steal of the price I got it for.
Has an I5 processor but lacks a SSD or the new SSHD (hybrid) that the higher end laptops are coming out with. The casing is well built compared to the others at the same price. I am very happy with the product. The screen area is also large and the keyboard and touchpad flow well.

Cons: The standard ASUS OEM Software. I noticed it was sluggish with all the software. I had to blow away the operating system with a clean install. It works great now. But for the people who do not know or have the capabilities it will be a problem.

Other Thoughts: The laptop runs way better with a clean install without all the ASUS software taking up precious processor space.
Also if this was my computer and not my GF's I would double the RAM and install a SSHD. But what with she needs is just browsing and word processing the system works fine.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop for the price

Pros: This laptop has much more than you would expect at this price tag such as a large hard drive, 6gb of ram, and even an awesome i5 processor. I am able to run most of the games that I would play on this and this is the only laptop that I have owned which I could consider to be a desktop replacement.

Cons: The biggest cons with this laptop are Windows 8 and the Asus preinstalled software. Windows 8 is a beast of its own and it has many problems that have not been fixed yet so this may someday be an alright operating system. As for the Asus software I had to uninstall even the Asus update manager because it was causing my laptop to restart almost as soon as it booted up every time.

Other Thoughts: I cannot blame Asus for putting windows 8 on this laptop for that is only the fault of microsoft pushing new operating systems onto companies and pretty much forcing all new computers to use the new OS. Remember how hard it was to find an XP computer right after Vista came out? There will be many updates to windows 8 to make it more user friendly, so for now im not blaming that con on Asus.
