3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Not many pros here considering you know what you're getting, so you pay for it. I that a Pro? I don't know.

Cons: No gaming headsets work with this thing. If you find a pair that do, tell me. I've tried Razer Krakens = mic doesn't work. Turtle Beach = mic doesn't work. Two different pairs of other brands from the office = mics don't work. A combination of trying usb mics, with an amp, w/o amp, 3.5 mic all result in this thing not accepting what I'm giving it. If you *NEED* your gaming headset mic, then look elsewhere. This laptop is not meat for you to use any other mic than the built-in webcam mic.

4 out of 5 eggsI Love It

Pros: 1. Wonderful performance
2. Always quiet, even when gaming
3. Amazing keyboard
4. A touchpad that doesn't suck.
5. Very fast bootup

Cons: 1. Bloatware, (easy to remove though)
2. Some "ghosting" on screen, (not an issue for people with multiple monitors)

Other Thoughts: The computer is perfect for me, however there are a few flaws that a couple people may want to look at before purchasing.

2 out of 5 eggsSolid hardware, but with a serious defect

Pros: The 860M is a powerful card when running properly, and the i7 installed is likewise a beefy processor. Great for multitasking, games, and anything else performance-heavy you can throw at it. Good keyboard, big touchpad with separate buttons - which is good, since the touchpad is a sticking point for me. Good, long battery life, too, when not gaming, thanks to the Optimus system.

Cons: The model has a universal defect that causes blue screens if you use the latest Nvidia drivers for the graphics card, and performance troubles with the driver Asus provides. It's not just me; I've had Newegg replace the whole notebook, and the replacement has the same issue. Several others on the ROG forum do, too. Neither Asus nor Nvidia will acknowledge the issue thus far. Would recommend against buying if this issue remains unaddressed.

Touchpad is also a bit too big and sensitive; if you turn off the "touchpad delay" setting so you can use it in games, expect to have a lot of accidental clicks when your palm hits the corner of the touchpad.

Other Thoughts: Official ROG Forum details on the driver problem here: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?48428-G750JM-Daily-BSODS-DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

5 out of 5 eggsExtreamly good

Pros: I'll try to show you my point of view in every important aspect for gamer/powerful laptop.
1. Design - looks great, mat outside, brushed around keyboard. Fingerprints everywhere.
2. Display : great, full HD, sharp
3. Keyboard : nice, with light - 3 llevels
4. GTX 860M - great, new, powerful
5. I7 - powerful
6. Network - up to 144 Mbit/s (N)
7. Ram 12 GB - enough

Why did I get it : because it's (I think) the only computer on the market, designed around cooling ! This thing stays extremely cool when playing WOT on Ultra settings. It is tough, ROG logo on front has back-light ; looks great at night. Powerful machine need cooling - it was a main factor around graphic adapter. Because of that - this unit is heavy. BUT if you looking for powerful gamer machine - who cares about weight ?

8. Battery : I don't care but expecting no more that 3-4 hours
BTW - full GTX power available only with AC adapter plugged in.

Cons: 1. HHD - to slooooooooooooooooow
What I did was put SDD 240Gb for system. Computer started flying. Amen.
Original 1Tb drive is in as my data partition.

What's missing: BR burner - BUT you can get one like LG BT30N for 79 bucks and you're all set.

Other Thoughts: What would I change : pad position push a little bit to the right - messing up when playing with left hand on keyboard - what I do is simply switching it off.

HDD - as I mentioned - add SSD for system ASAP - I bought one same day as this ASUS.

Ohhh : don't forget to buy one 16GB flash for Asus backtracker - simply plug it in and system gets brand new withing minutes ! YES minutes !

This is the fastest (with SSD) laptop I ever had BUT I wouldn't say that with no SSD aboard - yes - it is so important.

5 out of 5 eggsG750

Pros: This is a very high quality laptop. I would not buy any other laptop than this laptop. All of the design flaws in the gaming series have been fleshed out over the years to near perfection.

Cons: The panel is a TN panel. However most panels are TN panels. This only means less color and cannot be viewed at an angle. The terabyte hard drive is good as a storage drive. You should immediately buy an SSD drive and put in in the main spot. This computer holds two hard drives. The other down side is you will have to purchase a windows 8 CD. This is expected nowadays. Nobody is shipping computers with the CD.

Other Thoughts: Do not waste your money on any other brand. Asus is not a company that buys parts and simply puts things together. Asus manufactures the parts. Alienware/dell and other companies are wanna be Asus laptops.
Assembly companies cannot compete with a company that creates every piece of software and hardware. for their computers.

4 out of 5 eggsNot what I needed at all

Pros: This laptop handles games fantastically if thats what you're after. Tested bioshock infinite on maxed settings and handled it like it was surfing the web. no problems what so ever.

Cons: That being said, gaming is the only thing you will be doing with this laptop. It is way to large and heavy to be treated like any other laptop. Its basically a really small desktop you might take to a friends house at most. its so big i cant even fit it in my messenger bag and close the bag. It also just is really uncomfortable to put on your lap because of the big rubber feet on it. everything about it is designed to be used as a replacement for a desktop.

Other Thoughts: If you want a gaming laptop its great. if you want to use it as a regular laptop, youer gonna need something smaller. This thing is not that portable.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop

Pros: Amazing laptop. Intel i7 is lightning fast, 12GB RAM is decent. High quality screen. Nvidia 860M Maxwell is an awesome card. This is the GM107 Maxwell video card inside. Stays very cool, have run 8 hour gaming sessions with friends and nothing ever feels warm to the touch (usually you can feel some heat through keyboard on gaming laptops).

Cons: Not really a con, but SSD's have spoiled me rotten. The internal mechanical hard drive this thing ships with feels painfully slow. My first order of business was dropping a Samsung 840 EVO 500GB. I did a clean install of Windows 8 on the SSD and reformatted the HDD as a storage drive. That being said this laptop is a dream come true.

Other Thoughts: For those of you who cannot stand Windows 8, there are 2 programs I strongly recommend from Stardock.

1. Start 8 is a system mod that brings back the Windows 7 style start menu and navigation. You never have to see metro again unless you chose to.

2. Modern Mix lets you run the metro apps in windowed views which is especially handy and way more efficient than the default full screen mode.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent laptop, powerful. Poor choice in components.

Pros: I absolutely loved the aluminum keyboard plate. As for the keyboard, I found it worked and responded very well. Even the touchpad, while seemingly cheap feeling, responded rather well too.

The display lid had very smooth hinge movement and felt very solid.

Operating temperatures were always very low, even while gaming, with GPU temps never going above 70C. I cannot comment on the CPU temps as I never checked, however, the CPU vent fan never really kicked out much hot air so Im inclined to believe it was running rather cool as well. The keyboard also remained very cool and was not very noticeable, except for where the HDD was located. The HDD area never got uncomfortably hot but it was certainly noticeable to my palms.

The 860m Maxwell performs very well for a mobile chip and was capable of running Watch_Dogs at 1080p with high pre-set settings while maintaining an average of 30 FPS and with medium settings it was doing around 45 FPS.(If the game wasn't a terribly optimized mess, i'd bet it would have done better)

Cons: The display was ok. It looked good until I started browsing the internet with it and discovered there were faint, vertical grey lines everywhere. Aside from that, the viewing angles were relatively good, there was no light bleed at all, and the brightness was more than sufficient.

I did not like how much the keyboard keys stuck out of the aluminum keyboard plate. Many times I snagged the side of a key and felt like I ripped it off (never actually did, so they seem rather solidly too).


About two weeks in, I started receiving RAM related errors, sometimes from a fresh boot while other times were from recovering from hibernation. Side note: two of the four slots are NOT user serviceable and WILL void your warranty if you try to access them.

The 1TB 5400RPM drive is a joke. From powered off to desktop took nearly a minute and recovering from hibernation was just as terrible. I installed a SanDisk 64GB SSD and it dramatically improved boot time. That's really an understatement because it only took 5 seconds from powered off and around 8 to 10 seconds from hibernation (the HDD needed time to wake up as it was setup to house the hibernation and pagefile data) Any SSD, even some knock off chinese brand that's probably a usb thumb drive shoved into an enclosure, would be better. Speed aside, it was also is extremely noisy. While being accessed, the drive clicked constantly which quickly became irritating.

Other Thoughts: I was, at first, very impressed with the laptop as a whole but over time my impression changed.

I've done some reading about this generation of the G750 as well as previous ones and the things people complained the most about were the display screen, with the gray lines, and the terrible HDDs. Some models seem to even come with TWO 500GBs HDDs instead of a single 1 TB HDD and was not advertised as such. I suppose I was fortunate in getting the 1 TB HDD.

I, sadly, returned mine. I could not stand the gray lines, the HDD clicking, and the RAM errors. I do not believe I will purchase another though I do wish I could find another brand with that aluminum keyboard plate.

Oh, and I only had the laptop for around 20 days.

1 out of 5 eggsMine CAUGHT ON FIRE

Pros: Pros? really? Pros are it did not burn my house down.

Cons: The flimsy cable to the trackpad shorted out, which melted the case, and but for me racing to yank all power, might have burned the house down. ASUS India technical support, says there's "nothing that they can do." Right. There's plenty I can do, and if ASUS does not replace this notebook even after 90 days refurb warranty, I'm doing it, because 2000 notebooks refurbed should not CATCH ON FIRE.
