1 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop, Terrible Keyboard

Pros: Great laptop, runs well, has a decent amount of space. The monitor's pretty good. I was able to run a virtual machine, 3 instances of Eclipse, a sprite editor, Unity, and listen to music at the same time, which was what I needed the laptop to do. This computer was just right for my price range, except it has some flaws that make it frustrating to work with.

Cons: If you read the other reviews, you'll see a couple other people are having the same problems that I am.

This would be a great laptop, but using it is a nightmare. The space key does not work unless you hit it in a very specific area (just beneath the N key). No matter how hard you press it, the left side of the space key just does not work.

Also, it is nearly impossible to right mouse click using the laptop's touchpad. It takes about 4-5 tries, during which the left mouse button is input instead. This makes things very tedious when trying to group edit. Imagine trying to do basic things like dragging across a group of files to select them, and then right clicking to zip them or something. Good luck with that.

Other Thoughts: TLDR version:
- Good hardware for most part
- Space key does not work
- Right mouse click does not work

I bought this as a work laptop. I've had Asus motherboards before and they've been alright, so I thought I'd try out their laptops. Turns out I was wrong - I'm going to return this laptop and get something else, maybe a Lenovo.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Christian,

I certainly understand your concern regarding the issue with the touchpad and the spacebar key. Please allow some time to get use to the feel of the key and the multi-touch function of the pad. In order to improve the touchpad responsiveness and stability, please install all recommended WINDOWS Update. Also, try updating the touhcpadn driver or the ASUS Smart Gesture utility and try to configure the touchpad within the application. If you think the keyboard is faulty and needed help sending it in for warranty service, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140935348 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

2 out of 5 eggsasus??

Pros: fast processor, descent memory, gaming card DDR3?

Cons: it's an asus
gaming card should be DDR5

Other Thoughts: Asus is the problem, they build what seems nice, but in reality it's got underlying issues. their build quality is poor to, bloated keyboards, months for RMA's to finally come back and you paying for shipping and insurance every time, left/right click difficult(as in others, but others have toughscreen that makes it forgiving), other manufacturers that have a better product as the same or better price

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize if you were dissatisfied with the built quality, and warranty coverage of the laptop.If I can be of further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140935365 on the subject line.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is a very nice laptop. It has a good screen, good sound and good camera. Runs very fast, have played diablo 3 on moderate settings (gets a bit too laggy at 1920x1080 for my taste, but playable ~25 fps).

Cons: Few things could use improvement. Of course there are the mountains of bloatware all laptops come with these days, but if you have the know-how you can wipe it clean. I'm not a real fan of the keyboard, it feels kinda stiff and I find myself missing keystrokes quite frequently. The one problem I have that is more than simple nit-picking is that the harddrive makes clicking noises that are moderately loud in a quite room. This is a problem my last asus laptop had as well. I would replace the harddrive with an SSD, but if you do that yourself apparently it voids the warranty which seems a little ridiculous to me. I'm hoping this is simply annoying and not a precursor to failure.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm glad I bought it. Really good price for the kind of gaming power and speed this laptop has. I'm hoping the keyboard will get less stiff over time. I would be happier if the harddrive wasn't clicking (or I could fix that problem myself without voiding the warrenty), but its definitely a good buy.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Scott,

I't good to know that you are gald that you bought the laptop besides your concern regarding the stiffness of the keyboard and the bloatware. Please allow some time to get use to the feel of the keys. You are always free to uninstall or remove some pre-installed software that are needed in order to free some system resourcess. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140935425 on the subject line.

4 out of 5 eggsSpacebar

Pros: Runs games well at a 1080p resolution

Cons: The spacebar requires alot of force for it to respond

5 out of 5 eggsTop notch machine

Pros: Best sound I've heard in a laptop with the external subwoofer. Good Nvidia card

Cons: The external subwoofer is a paind to tote around but how much of a negative is that for you? I have grown use to a larger screen, got the Acer 17.3 instead.

4 out of 5 eggsASUS N56JN Notebook

Pros: Laptop is quite responsive even though it only has 8 Gig of RAM, setup was a dream, arrived in tip top shape with no visible damage.

Cons: Took an egg because of the etching and coloring of the keys can be difficult to see in low light.

Other Thoughts: If you want a powerful laptop for the price this is it. You will be satisfied......

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsIt works well but some problems

Pros: It is powerful enough to run many things at a satisfactory level.

Cons: When I received mine the "b" button wont work unless I press it with more force that the others. It gets quite annoying and I expected something like this to be tested before being shipped especially for the price of almost $1k..

Other Thoughts: This may be a specific problem to me but keep in mind that things like this could happen to you and do become very annoying after awhile.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Alex,

t's good to know that the laptop works well and the system performance is at satisfactory level. I apologize if you are experiencing issue with the "B" key. If you think this key is faulty and you need further assistance sending it in for warranty service, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140935645 on the subject line.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: It really is a fast and easy to use Laptop. Other than windows8.1, it works right out of the box, startup is quick and painless and I got the laptop in 3 days. Very quiet and lighter than I expected, even with the battery.

Cons: Windows 8.1 I honestly hate windows 8x. The operating system reminds me of what happens to a monkey when it eats fermented fruit, goes nuts on a tree and falls off.

Other Thoughts: I really wanted to give this 5 eggs but that Ethernet port on the left side I think was designed to tick people off. I can see now why older folks look at laptops and cant find the Ethernet port. The slight slide down -guard- is pointless as it makes it difficult to just unclip and pull the rj45 out. Now you got to take effort not to break it off or putting it in. Also, I cannot locate a recovery DVD maker anywhere. In fact, on the CD and already on the laptop, that option Backup & Restore, is empty. Also, perhaps Im not keen to microsoft's genius, but I don't understand why there are two drives. One for the OS and one for the ...storage? The keyboard, though sleek, lacks notification lights like Num lock and removing the white/blue FN keyboard visual was a bad idea. to maybe save on ink? The key placement takes a bit getting used to.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm glad to know that the unit is so far so good and you've found it as a fast and easy to use laptop. I certainly understand your concern regarding some features of the laptop, these will be reconsidered in future product design. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140935850 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

5 out of 5 eggsTHE Best on a Budget

Pros: The features and reliability you get from this Laptop are simply put: Outstanding. The Graphics card runs Everquest 2 and similar games on High Quality with no lag, which for a laptop is quite rare for the price. Aside from graphics, the Bang and Olufsen ICEpower sound system (with provided subwoofer) is by far the best sounding laptop I've ever heard. I use this one primarily for recording music and as a tool for Lessons and secondarily for Gaming. If you're on a budget and looking for the best bang for your buck, you'll be hard pressed to beat this thing. For just 50 dollars more you can get a Gigabyte Laptop with one step up graphics card which does run games better, but I still chose this one because ASUS is just amazing when it comes to performance, reliability and durability. One cool thing about this comp is the detachable battery. You can keep multiple ones charged up and at the ready if you're not going to be around a charger anytime soon. VERY useful indeed.

Cons: The only con I've found on this thing yet is the computer runs extremely HOT when running EQ2. A secondary cooling system that sets under the computer would be preferable. Also the battery life (understandably) goes down from 5 hours, to about 1.5 or less hours running those types of games. You will have to keep it plugged in to the wall 90% of the time if you plan on gaming. But like I said earlier, the battery easily detaches and you can have multiples if keeping it plugged in is a huge burden for you, and easily change them out as needed.

Other Thoughts: Here's where the MAJOR cons come in... which has nothing to do with the Laptop, and EVERYTHING to do with Newegg.com. I ended up having to make a second account to purchase this computer through paypal, because they CHARGED my credit card the first time, and THEN decided to accuse me of credit card fraud, then Cancelled the order and completely BANNED my primary account. I will absolutely NEVER buy so much as a mouse pad from Newegg again. Absolutely nothing. I tried calling multiple times about the issue and kept getting told the issue was locked and they couldn't even discuss it. To top it all off, when I sent an email requesting they do SOMETHING to make all the grief I went through right, they just replied explaining their shipping process. (I paid for overnight shipping when I bought it the first time on Thursday to get it on Friday, and had to pay Overnight again on Friday, and didn't get it until Tuesday, making the overnight shipping hardly worth the cost. If you can find what you're looking for ANYWHERE else, I STRONGLY urge you to do so!! The customer service, support, etc from this website is the worst you will ever encounter. I was a very loyal Newegg customer until I had an issue that needed dealt with and they didn't lift a finger to help even TRY to resolve it. If you buy from them, you better hope you don't have any problems because you are, in fact, on your own. This review is my last contribution to newegg, so Farewell.

5 out of 5 eggsPleasantly surprised

Pros: The screen resolution is a huge improvement over my previous computer

The processor is so very fast.

Geforce 840m graphics, not bad not bad.

Windows 8.1 isn't that bad as long as you clear some of the junk off, and it boots fast as hell.

Solid design, keyboard types well and doesn't run very warm.

Speakers are pretty decent.

Cons: There is not much bloatware, but annoying still that it has any at all.

The mousepad takes a bit of work to get used to.

Some programs aren't designed for 1080p display natively so they have to be adjusted in the programs settings.

A little bigger than I anticipated especially for a 15.6"

Silly add-on subwoofer is silly.

Other Thoughts: I'm so far very impressed with this laptop. It's a bit bigger than I anticipated but It's light enough and runs very quietly. I am very happy so far, will update if this changes.
