Pros: Looks nice
Cons: Owned this laptop for 3 days and for 3 days straight I have being trying to update windows, but I have constantly been receiving errors and crashes while trying to update windows or open my web browser. These errors, crashes/Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) have been; BAD_POOL_CALLER, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK, and DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL(tcpip.sys).
The laptop is brand new and there should not be this many problems. I've tried contacting asus and newegg customer support for a attempt to get a repair/replacement laptop for my malfunctioning laptop.
Pros: On paper, the specs seem nice.
The physical case of the laptop is nice.
Cons: Okay, so I have owned this laptop for 4 days and 3 of those days I have spent day and night trying to figure out how to fix my windows 8. The laptop crashes constantly and sometimes minutes after restarting the laptop from a previous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). Of the errors I have received that caused a BSOD are; BAD_POOL_CALLER, KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (tcpip.sys).
I should NOT have to deal with all these problems for a laptop being BRAND NEW.
I have tried to contact newegg and ASUS customer support for a replace/return of this laptop.
Pros: The overall look of the monitor and the display is phenomenal.
Cons: Before purchasing this monitor I say that a large amount of cons with this monitor was that the quality of sound from the speakers were very bad. figuring it was just an exaggeration I didn't pay it no mind, but now that I have the monitor I realize they were all true.
The loudness alone is very poor. I have all my audio settings at max. and everything still seems whisper quiet.
Other Thoughts: Overall a good monitor, but if you are looking to purchase this monitor because it has speakers, I wouldn't recommend it because it will be a bitter disappointment and will end up just using your headset :/READ FULL REVIEW
