ASUS X750JA-DB71 Notebook Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4600 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: + CPU and RAM are nice, hard to find an i7 paired with anything more than 6GB for under nine hundred

+ Sturdy chassis, lightweight yet doesn't feel flimsy

+ Four USB ports, two of which 3.0. Not bad considering most laptops only come with two or three

+ Screen is well lit and colors are sharp

+ TB worth of hard drive space

+ Sound is crisp and clear, and while not a sound enthusiast by any means it is nice to have

Cons: - HDD is a traditional platter drive and only spins at 5400 RPM. Not terrible but does require some patience, especially if you've played with SSDs or something like a raptor drive.

Other Thoughts: Windows 8 comes pre bundled, and in case you're WIndows 8-handicapped like myself, you apparently have to update it fully BEFORE you're allowed to go to 8.1. Just a heads up. ASUS has also partitioned the TB drive into two partitions, one for OS and one for data, split 60/40 in favor of the data partition.

Basic maintenance like battery replacement and accessing that extra HDD bay will void the warranty if you do it yourself; the laptop will have to be sent in and done by 'trained ASUS technicians' (a quote from the manual). If easy accessibility is high on your list, this isn't the laptop for you.

Overall, with the money that's being shelled out for it, I'd think the manufacturer could have thrown in a faster drive. But with that aside, can't really complain too much. It does what I want it to do but has the capability to do much more if needed, which is what I was mainly after.

ASUS VG Series VG278H Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - 120 Hz (main reason for purchase)
- Vivid and bright colors

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: You're gonna need an Nvidia video card to use the 3D technology. Perhaps it was obvious to most, but I was under the impression any card would do since it wasn't specifically stated anywhere on the specs/description. So, while satisfied, it is a little frustrating that I can't utilize the 3D simply because of my ATI video card. Should have been stated clearly in the specs what was required for 3D

Genius GX Gaming SW-G2.1 1250 38 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Streamline design, modern look, speakers and bass can be tuned seamlessly, easy setup (color-coordinated no less)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For their size these speakers can handle a lot. This was my first purchase from this company, and I can tell you I've gone from having never heard of them to being my first choice in sound.
