1 out of 5 eggsScreen is Dangerous

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

Pros: Extremely fast performance, sleek look, seems to cool itself well.

Cons: Screen that flickers terribly (most noticeable with brghtness turned down). Horizontal and vertical lines. Dangerous for those with epilepsy or photosensitivity. Simplistic screen controls. No way to adjust Gamma settings. Movement in movies has odd visual blurring/jerking. Forced Optimus.

Other Thoughts: I would give this laptop 4 stars if the screen were not so terribly bad that it renders the rest of it useless. The extra missing star is because the laptop limits the user's range of access to hardware settings in general (e.g. for the touchpad, screen, etc.) and forcing software like Optimus (instead of making it optional to turn Optimus off) is just a bad deal. I would venture to say that most of us who are willing to pay extra for a gaming laptop, would also appreciate a fair degree of customization potential in both software and hardware control.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS G750 JS

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

Pros: Battery, Build Quality A+++, temps/fan noise while gaming, keyboard, support, everything except rendering, large great trackpad

Cons: CPU temps while rendering (full/max/true 100% CPU load leads to 100c and thermal throttling). Went through 7 Asus laptops all same thing.
But that's really it, and only in those circumstances, everything else A+

Other Thoughts: Review MSI GT70 Dominator Pro 890
-My laptop purchasing experience -
First thing, I have over the past 6 months gone through over 10 laptops trying to find ‘THE ONE’. This all started at Best, eventually led to Ama, and finished at New.
Starting with the Asus G750JX from last year (current year when purchased). I really liked the laptop, but it was heavier than I had originally wanted, and battery life was around 2.5-3 hours. But I had my eye on the Samsung ativ book 8. So I exchanged the ASUS for the Samsung.
The Samsung was light, 8 hours of battery, slim, touch screen, i7 and discrete video chip. Just great. But while rendering, I was getting insane heats, which ultimately lead to frying several core components and leaving the laptop unusable.
After the Samsung, I went and spent $2500 on the MacBook pro retina with discrete graphics. I was trying to stay under $1500, but figured if I wanted the best, I had to pay for the best. Well, the apple boot loaded to windows, was pretty much just a better build Samsung at twice the cost. While rendering, heats got unbearable, horribly throttled, and laptop felt like a frying pan.
When having these troubles with the apple, Asus came out with the newer versions of the G750, with the 800 series graphics and optimus which almost doubled the battery life. I figured, weight wise id have to deal with if I wanted the cooling I needed, and the battery complaint vs my first ASUS was now fixed. So I started off with the JM series with 860m. Overall awesome laptop, everything was just quality, top notch. While gaming, temps were cool, fans were quiet, and it was just awesome. But while rendering, CPU temps easily got to 100c and the computer throttled the CPU to cool it down. Which is great, but every throttle during rendering, led to my final rendered video having a glitch or artifact of some sort every time it throttled. Which was about 100 times during an hour movie. Brought it back and exchanged it for the same model. (I really liked/like the ASUS). Next laptop same thing, so exchanged it for same model again. Same thing.
So I returned for money back, and went to ama. Thinking maybe best - buy models were all of same shipment, maybe something wrong with that production line. So went and stepped up to the JS model on ama. Which was awesome, bought at 5pm, and paid $10 for next day shipping, had by noon the very next day. Just wow ama.
The new ama purchased JS series I immediately ran stress tests instead of downloading and installing all my programs to figure out the heating issues. Well the first JS laptop excelled. Reached around 90c, still warm but 10c away from throttling. I though, just great. Within a few weeks, temps were back to 100c and throttling. So I called ama, and they sent out another one for replacement. I received next day and had 30 days to return mine via provided USPS prepaid shipping box. Again, ama, awesome.
The very first thing I did again, was stress test 100% CPU, and temps w

4 out of 5 eggsInitial Impressions

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

Pros: Large Screen, bright display, powerful, backlit keyboard, a factory warranty that covers accidental damage, rubberized coating

Cons: Poor audio reproduction for bass audio, some bloatware (not too much compared to other laptops), prone to visible fingerprints

Other Thoughts: Another reviewer (either on this one or one of the other builds) mentioned that you couldn't use the left click and push a button at the same time. This is a Windows 8 setting that can be adjusted by opening up the charm bar -> Change PC Settings (on the bottom) -> PC and Devices -> Mouse and Touchpad, then change the "Touchpad" setting to "No delay (always on)."

Others recommend doing a clean install of Windows and you can do this if you want, but it's not necessary. There's very little bloatware on the laptop. Actually, other than a trial of Office and a subscription to McAfee (at least I think there might be a trial, I don't know, I removed it right away), the rest of the included software is either Asus software or other drivers.

I recommend running the display calibration software in Windows. The display that mine came with was very bright with too much blue in the display that made the picture look washed out.

I'm not sure if NewEgg allows updating of reviews, but if they do, I'll be sure to come back and update should anything come up.

5 out of 5 eggsWow! Super fast!

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

Pros: This little puppy is super fast!! Great battery life if you're just using it to do random internet stuff. I think once the graphics card kicks in, it'll eat the battery pretty quick. The screen is beautiful, sound is quite nice and the feel of the laptop is solid.

It's a great desktop replacement or a computer you know will be there for you if you need to go on a trip, but still have the ability to game or do any sort of high cpu work. Photoshop works great on this beast as well as pretty much any game I throw its way.

I love the keyboard and the touch pad is huge.. Maybe a little too huge, but that's okay. It's very easy to customize with Asus's software.

Cons: It didn't come with a free sandwich. :(

Other Thoughts: This machine is worth the money! I think I would have probably went with the 1200 dollar version, but at least with the graphics card and cpu I know that this guy will be with me for the long haul.

4 out of 5 eggsYou will not be disappointed.

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

Pros: This things eats up everything I throw at it. I primarily run racing simulations. Assetto Corsa, Project Cars, F1-2013, LFS, iRacing, and Sim Raceway all run flawlessly with every graphics setting maxed. It's a beast and stays cool as can be.

Cons: It's gotta be the widest laptop I've ever seen and definitely the heaviest. I bought it knowing full well what I was getting. My only issue with it was finding a case that rolls to hold the beast! It took quite a while but I ended up buying a swissgear sleeve and a targus rolling laptop case.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat gaming laptop, touchy partitions

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

Pros: SSD makes startup/restarts super fast, 1TB HDD for plenty of game storage, Runs everything I have on ultra settings (Watch_Dogs being the latest title)

Cons: Drives are partitioned oddly, bloatware, changing the partitions broke the recovery partition - thankfully Windows key is stored in BIOS and can be retrieved easily, note I did not try to alter the recovery partition in any way, but changing the size of the other partitions on the SSD seems to have broken it

Other Thoughts: If you know how to do a clean install of Windows 8, I'd recommend it. Not having all of the bloatware is a definite plus. Just search Google for "G750JS Windows 8.1 Clean Install" and you'll find everything you need.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Laptop

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

Pros: An amazing laptop with great power for any of the new games out. 8.1 is not as bad as some people make it out to be and can be rather useful and smooth. Far Cry, Titanfall, and Battlefield all run extremely well. I was very surprised at how cool the system stays while running a game on ultra settings.

Cons: Some minor quirks and things that mess up within windows 8.1 but nothing that alters my perception of the performance.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this laptop.

4 out of 5 eggsNice unit, battery lasts a long time

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

Pros: Fast, long battery life. Nice big display for your eyes, nice keyboard.

Cons: The touchpad gets in your way if you are typing. Annoying. Need to shut it off if you are coding or otherwise using the keyboard a lot. Pretty heavy. Not a problem for me, but others who picked it up were wondering if I bought it for the exercise. And you can't just go buy any 17" laptop bag and expect it to fit. It took me a few days bumping around town to find one and it wasn't cheap. But none of these are deal breakers. It's a monster.

Other Thoughts: I am amazed at how long the battery lasts, given that this is a high resolution high performance machine.

4 out of 5 eggsGood not Great

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

Pros: -Looks great
-Very good specs
-Dual fan design
-Keeps pretty quiet
-Feels solid

Cons: -Keyboard is fairly sub-par
-HDD's and SSD's are organized weird
-Hard to find a bag that fits
-Matte finish on screen is noticeable
-Windows 8
-Bloatware
-Price (Should be in the $1,600 range)
-No customizeability

Other Thoughts: My biggest complaint right now is the bad keyboard. For almost $1,800 I expect a little more quality than what this machine has to offer in terms of the keyboard (everything else seems solid). Right out of the box I noticed several smudges/glue on some of the keys. I can tell that it's going to be a pain to get those off as I've already tried with moist towels and was unsuccessful. Additionally, the spacebar is rather unresponsive on the far-right side. It won't work unless I press it in the center or on the left-most edge. This is incredibly annoying as I operate the spacebar with my right hand and have to click it several times before it registers.

Another thing that I found annoying was the fact that the laptop comes with 4 separate drives meaning there are two 465GB HDD's, a 95.3GB SSD, and a 121GB SSD.

When deciding on which laptop to buy I was on the fence between the MSI GT70 Dominator 895 and the G750JS-DS71 and only went with this laptop because I had never owned as MSI product before and had heard that they suffer from build quality issues, over-heating due to only having a single fan, and being loud. Spec wise the MSI is the vastly superior machine with a better CPU, screen, keyboard, speakers, wireless, and a better price-point at $1,400 but like I said, it only comes with a single fan and heat is a laptop killer.

I will try to update this review some time in the future after some more serious usage but as of right now this seems like a fairly decent machine.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Laptop

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

Pros: This laptop is wicked fast, boot up time is ridiculously fast. Coming from sleep mode the screen is up after your finger leaves the button.

The HDD is no slouch either. Very Fast, this is where I store my games. I've only used about half of the 1TB HDD.

GPU pushes games about as good as my desktop did with the same settings(Ultra or whatever the highest are). 50-80FPS for modern games and beyond that for older ones that aren't nearly as strenuous on it. Stays about 75C when gaming no matter the utilization. Asus's cooling design is superior, that's just it PERIOD.

This notebook is surprisingly thin but see Cons.

I haven't used the HDMI or Thunderbolt but with how good everything else is I can't imagine them to have problems.

Screen looks great, especially compared to previous 17" notebook. Color Accuracy seems much better as well. Also it actively changes screen brightness for when needed. If you have a bright/white screen you can see it brighten a bit and vice-versa with darker screens. It's pretty cool.

USB 3.0 runs pretty dang fast.

Keyboard feels pretty good but I'm not one of those "intense" gamers that has to have the super-ultimate keyboard. It is backlit though, which is one of my top 5 favorite things about this notebook.

I'm unsure of what everyone keeps saying about the speakers, they sound pretty good. Going from a desktop to a laptop you can't expect these to rival a 5.1 setup at your desk at home but for a laptop the detail is great and if you're an audiophile like myself the equalization software works pretty well. Even the "effects button" inside the software improves the sound better than I can adjust it(So the software actually works)(Just make sure to open it to enable the bass and other effects, otherwise they will sound lackluster)

Wireless Signal is phenominal, maybe my previous Wireless N notebook was in the stone age but this notebook always has a good signal where my previous notebook left a lot to be desired.

Battery life is good so long as you don't game on it, NVIDIA OPTIMUS technology works without a hitch despite what others say(don't listen to them). Battery life while gaming is to be expected <1 hr. The power supply is almost 200 Watts people.


NVIDIA OPTIMUS - There were a couple games (not big titles) that ran automatically on the intel gpu, after manually setting those to run on the NVIDIA GPU they ran fantastic. Other than those the switching is seamless, you literally can't tell the difference or when it occurs(obviously when you start the game it switches but they've ironed it out well). Target frame rate when on battery works great too. Much better than previous generation G750 notebooks, apparently when you disconnected the power they were ungameable, not the case for this beast.

Cons: -Speakers sound like doodoo if you don't open the software and enable the bass and other amazing functions it can provide
-Notebook seems thinner than in the pictures but is quite long, about standard 17" laptop width but the heat sinks extend the laptop a good 1.5-2" past the back of the monitor.
-I bought this new at $1900, I wish it would have come with a Blu-Ray drive but they can be easily switched out from what I've heard.

Other Thoughts: Looks pretty dang cool too, not over the top like an alienware but not bland like much of the competition. Just a little bit of aesthetics beyond flat black panels like the competition.
