ASUS ROG G751JT-CH71 Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4710HQ (2.50 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M 3 GB 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: NIce styling. Hardware seemed solid. Great screen.

Cons: Red backlit keyboard is terrible. To be far, I am pastel color blind making red a bad color to use.

Other Thoughts: It died after about 5 months refusing to boot due to graphic card problems (it appeared). Got an RMA from ASUS. Sent it in, It supposedly arrived at ASUS, according to FedEx, but nothing after that. Not a peep from ASUS. Nothing on the ASUS RMA tracking site either.
No response to any email inquiries either. I am out over $1400.00 and getting no response from ASUS. Buyer beware.

ASUS ROG G751JT-CH71 Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4710HQ (2.50 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M 3 GB 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The display is top notch.
The performance of the hardware is good.
It feels like a solid product.
It runs cooler than expected.

Cons: The red keyboard letters are difficult to see if you have glasses and are looking at a bright screen, due to the glare from the screen.
Windows 8.1 (why only two eggs)

Other Thoughts: We tried to get used to Windows 8.1 and just find it too cumbersome and difficult to use. Seems like you have to click twice as many times to get something done, as opposed to Windows 7.
It is just frustrating to use. No matter how nice the hardware is, the operating system makes it difficult, frustrating, and simply kills the user experience.
I contacted ASUS, asking them about Windows 7 support and they kindly told me to get use to using Windows 8.1 that Windows 7 support is not available.
We will be looking to get rid of this laptop so we can get a Windows 7 based one before they are all gone. I wish it would have worked out. Great hardware and specs.
I made a mistake and learned from it.

Seagate 500GB Expansion Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STBX500100 Black
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice form factor. Like the removeable USB plug to expose the SATA connector. Decent performance.

Cons: Bought one a while back and it came in as a 250GB model, even though it was/is clearly marked as a 500GB model. Noticed it too late to return it.

Bought another one, from a different store, and same problem. 232GB of free space. Clearly marked as a 500GB model.

Other Thoughts: Did Seagate have a batch come out marked incorrectly?
