3 out of 5 eggsOverall good

This review is from: ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JS-DS71 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: I am not going to repeat what others have written... just look at the above reviews.

Cons: Key starting to stick after less than a year of use. Its frustrating because I cant just send this out for repairs, as I have to have a laptop for school. Not a huge issue, but when I look at possible solutions for this problem I came across similar issues with keys sticking. All, I can say is for $1900.00 I shouldn't be dealing with a key sticking issue... I guess it could be worse.

5 out of 5 eggsDesk Top Replacement - Gaming Rig (DTR-GR)

This review is from: ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JS-DS71 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Powerhouse of a laptop. Very suited for playing mid to high level games. Got this while deployed and served as my entertainment piece and also to eventually replace my desktop back home (It's more powerful). Serves VERY well as a DTR. Additionally; at the sacrifice of upgradability, someone can roll their desktop and laptop budgets into one and afford this gem. Runs KSP, Space Engineers, Alien: Isolation and other comparable games with decent graphics. Furthermore; the heatsinks and fans are very good at discharging heat. Several times I would place water bottles with drink mix, in the exhaust flow on the right, to have a nice hot drink while I game; yet the laptop and the graphics card ran flawlessly.

Finally; the finish is a nice rubberized material that helps it's endurance over the long while. Just be ready to leave fingerprints over the inside.

Cons: SSD was partitioned weirdly.

Other Thoughts: Weight. Be ready to bulk up and gain some muscle if you carry this around alot. Also get a bag that will fit.

Price. Very expensive for a laptop. But the quality and features are worth it; IMO.

6 months later it's still running nice; and the 50-60% humidity didn't phase it, but the sand and dust was all over it. Held up very well.

I've had many ASUS products over the last decade and I've had very positive results from their equipment.

5 out of 5 eggsComputer + Aircraft carrier = ASUS G750JS

This review is from: ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JS-DS71 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: I bought this laptop a little over a month ago and I love everything about it.

Graphics: My model sports the 870m which comes with 3GB GDDR5. Since I received the Laptop, I've been able to game extensively with games like Crysis 2, Civ 5, Bioshock Infinite, and others. Perhaps the most graphically intensive game in my library is Crysis 2 :

Crysis 2: No anti aliasing, or vertical sync: High settings @ 1080p ~60fps, Ultra Settings @1080P stands around 30, but fluctuates.

Boarderlands 2: No anti aliasing, or vertical sync: High settings @ 1080p ~60fps, MAX Settings @1080P stands around 30, but fluctuates.

Just for kicks - Crysis: No AA, or vertical sync gets us over 60fps thank heavens. That game came out over 7 years ago. haha

Also, I've connected two displays at once (total of 3) and it works very nicely as expected.

Other thoughts: The on-board software is kinda neat. I installed windows 10 tech preview for kicks and it turned out to be too weird. Asus Backtracker allowed me to seamlessly revert to a fresh spanking new install of 8.1 from Windows 10.

The Build quality is amazing. The dual copper heat sinks dissipate the heat very well, and while gaming, the heat doesn't end up right under your hands. the case shows fingerprints, but i feel that its less of a reflection of the laptop and more of a reflection on your FRIGGIN CHEETO HANDS.

Screen: ITS BRIGHT. I use a 250 nit screen at home and at work/school and the laptop screen outshines. I think it's 300 nit. It's the same brightness as my

I've seen several reviews criticizing the battery live and how heavy the Laptop is. I guess those guys are not as a smart as me because I KNOW when I buy a 17" laptop that contains a huge processor, and a great graphics card, I know I'm gonna have to plug in. They should have went with a tablet.

I found a backpack for it, and ended up going with the backpack by ASUS. Fits it quite nicely.

Cons: I guess one of the Cons would be how they partitioned the SSD. It's kinda split into two separate 128GB partitions.

Other Thoughts: I'll be picking up some more games later in the year, and I'll be sure to post back and talk about benchmarks then.

5 out of 5 eggsTotally Satisfied with this Purchase

This review is from: ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JS-DS71 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: I love this laptop. It's got a great battery life, which you can keep long by practicing good charging habits and not just leaving the thing plugged in all the time. Pretty much everything about this is a pro, from the specs/hardware, even most of the ASUS 'bloatware' is solid. I especially like their 'smart gesture' with the touchpad and power saving mode options (fn+space). Other things I don't use I just had to remove from startup programs list. Adjust screen brightness, goes from pretty dang bright to pretty dang dark, and all points in between. Keyboard lights can be turned on, dimmed, brightened etc. Lights are behind the keys themselves and don't show through the keys but rather around them.

Plays all the games I've installed so far on ultra/highest settings. (I haven't updated the Nvidia drivers, I'm scared I'll start getting BSOD, so word to the wise: if it aint broke dont fix it!). The SSD makes for super speedy file access, and the 7200RPM HDD isn't too bad either. The Broadcom 802.11ac wireless adapter is no slouch. If you've got access to 5g wifi at school or home or wherever, the speed will light you up and you *will* get a nosebleed, so bring some tissues. I downloaded a 24GB game on steam during an hour fifteen minute class period.

Sound is good, I like the sub on bottom. I was kind of expecting a crazy deep bass, but I realize that expectation was unrealistic and I'm happy with the sound this thing provides.

Furmark bench test with 2xmsaa didn't push the gfx card above 70 C. Dual copper vents really keep the internals very reasonably cool. Haven't done any serious video encoding or anything. I started out not liking windows 8.1 at all, but I installed shell classic start menu and it feels like good old win7 again, but dare I say it... nicer? the only real annoyance I've had is having to set up a microsoft acct.

No virtualbox yet, but I've dabbled with eclipse/android SDK and residualVM. Both emulate well, I have no complaints.

Webcam is pretty good quality too, I've only used it to snap my account picture though, and havent used the mic at all.

Cons: So far, I've been unable to boot into the bios. Not that its too important, but I would like to have the option just because I would feel better. Maybe it posts instantly because of its awesome specs, maybe ASUS just doesn't want us to screw it up and send it in for RMA and cost them time and money.

Overall, I gotta say I love they keyboard/touchpad setup. Nonetheless, I'm still having trouble getting used to the left-of-center keyboard and touchpad, and especially the arrow keys. I guess I just have to break the habits from my old HP laptop.

The size, weight, and shape of this thing I'll put as a con, even though I knew what I was getting. It barely fits in the Targus Demolition backpack I bought specifically because I needed a new one that would fit this haas. The vents on the back and rubber stoppers on the bottom will get in the way of a smooth slide-in every time. But I really do like the looks of it, so not really a con. No stars being taken off, anyway.

As long as I don't start having the software issues that ASUS users seem to be plagued with, I'll be a happy camper. BTW I bought this for $1,750 or thereabouts.

4 out of 5 eggsNot as good as it used to be

This review is from: ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JS-DS71 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: The graphics and screen on this laptop are all high quality, and it looks great. The cooling solution on this laptop keeps it nice and cool for extended usage and it performs well for long gaming sessions. For gaming this is a great laptop.

Cons: Funky keyboard layout for typing and poorly placed touchpad. This model has a slightly offset keyboard to the screen which makes typing for long periods uncomfortable, and the touchpad is also offset to the left which makes gaming with it impractical and regular usage of it uncomfortable. also the headphones plug in on the right side of the keyboard which makes using a mouse with it sometimes hard to do on small desks.

Other Thoughts: upgraded from an old asus G73jh to this one. The design of the G73 was very good and I passed up other brands because I assumed this one would be virtually identical in layout, it is not however. some of the design changes like moving the keyboard over slightly and touchpad seemed like okay changes for gaming but they make regular usage of the laptop somewhat uncomfortable and it has taken some getting used to, but since this is mostly a gaming laptop and that is what it is sold as I will only deduct one egg for this. overall the quality of the laptop is very nice and it performs as advertised.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

1 out of 5 eggsBattery Problems

This review is from: ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JS-DS71 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Very fast and powerful system, great for games.

Cons: Battery problems after over a month of ownership. Laptop dies when unplugged from AC power and battery indicator shows the battery is charged to 97%.

Other Thoughts: Great laptop if plugged into AC power but problems if unplugged.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize if the battery failed to charge after over a month. If the unit will not power on in battery mode only, please try to drain the battery completely and charge it fully without turning the system on. Once fully charged, try to power on the unit. If the problem persists and you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140946461 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

1 out of 5 eggsShipping Issues

This review is from: ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JS-DS71 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Great laptop, if it would arrive when New Egg guaranteed.

Cons: I ordered this laptop within the timely manner and selected rush processing (extra $) and next day shipping. The website states its being packaged now for about a day, while the automated telephone system stated it shipped out on September 10th (The day I Ordered It). Which contradicts itself.

Apparently even they don't know there shipping process, and now I've got to tell my son that the birthday present he wished for wont arrive in time because New Egg can't follow through with the services they offer.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. For any shipping related issues, please contact NewEgg directly. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140935360 on the subject line.

3 out of 5 eggs5 star laptop with 1 star quality control

This review is from: ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JS-DS71 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: For the price, nothing is better. The sound is good. The screen is better than the competition. The design is not made of plastic. The graphics are great. Plenty of RAM. An SSD drive. The cooling system is nice.

This is a fast laptop with a perfect set of features. The only improvements to me would have caused me to spend a lot more money on an Aorus or something.

Under perfect conditions, this laptop sounds great, runs most modern games at high/ultra, boots up in seconds, and runs at a max of 80C (Furmark).

Cons: The quality control on this is absolutely horrible. I had to go through four, THAT'S RIGHT, FOUR!! laptops before I finally found one that didn't have something wrong with them. Here are some issues I encountered.

Laptop 1: Temperatures on GPU were way too high. Running any moderately heavy GPU usage caused 90-93c temperatures. Furmark jumped to 93 and stayed at it permanently. Returned for a replacement.

Laptop 2: Good temperatures. Furmark topped out at 80. Most games didn't reach 75. However, after one day, the subwoofer broke and would cut out and in constantly, and make popping noises all the time. Returned.

Laptop 3: Back to high temperatures. Furmark ran to 90C this time. Games would run at 80+. This is not horrible, but I'm paying lots of money for a laptop that should last me a long time, so I'm at least going to get one that runs to specifications. Returned.

Laptop 4: Scratches on screen. It was in new packaging and everything, completely unopened. Didn't even turn it on, I just put it right back in the box. Returned.

Laptop 5: Finally seemed to get a model without any issues. Temperatures are in good ranges, subwoofer is still working (knock on wood).

Other Thoughts: Honestly, it was really stressful having such awful quality control issues. I'm about to leave the country and I won't be able to get any returns and warranty once I leave so it's very important for me to have a laptop that works according to specifications. I didn't have time to RMA everything.

If I had known that I would run into these issues from the start, I would have just spent the extra money for an Aorus, or gone with MSI. It sucks because I really like the ASUS the best of all the gaming computers, and I wish they would spend more money on what is clearly a great product with really bad QA.

Also I'd like to say Newegg was great during the process, all the refunds went out way earlier than expected, and customer support worked to get my returns expedited since they knew I had a short amount of time.
