Lasted 2 years

Pros: Great performance for gaming at the price range.

Cons: Glossy screens are awful. Battery lasted less than a year, did not replace. Power adapter died a few months later, replaced with 3rd party adapter.
No longer powers up. May be a power supply (internal) problem, or something dead on the board.

Other Thoughts: Laptop was a greatvalue when it worked. Very acceptable gaming performance. Cheapo battery died quickly. Glossy laptop screens are terrible design.

Poor product! extended warranty worthless! Beware

Pros: Decent computer for first year. Then major headache

Cons: After first year, very unreliable. Noisy, slow, prone to shutting down. Repaired with new fan but problem persisted. Subsequently shut down completely. After less than 2 years ownership, having bought a 3 year extended warranty, I was left with no computer. Customer service said they were unable to repair it, all repair costs were deducted from initial price so that I got less than 50% back. No paperwork, no invoice, not even the computer returned to me. May have been refurbished and resold for all i know. Very shabby service.

Other Thoughts: I have been a newegg customer for many years, but no more! I shall. Never purchase from Newegg again

2/ 5

Pros: This laptop has pretty good performance, it can run most games on fairly high settings even though it is two years old.

Cons: Lots of things have broken on this computer starting about one year after I got it. The warranty company has been absolutely horrendous. While it was under warranty one of the hinges broke and they refused to fix it, claiming it was "aesthetic" and wasn't funtional. Because hinges on a laptop don't hold the screen on or anything...

It produces MASSIVE amounts of heat and the fans broke at one point. Luckily the warranty company was willing to fix that problem.

The touchpad has also had some problems. Fairly early on the click buttons lost sensitivity and had to be pressed really hard to register a click. The touchpad has also recently started registering a zoom command constantly even when not being touched. This has registered the touchpad unusable.

Great Desktop Replacement

Comments: Overall, this laptop has served me well, and will probably go on to live another 4 or 5 years. It is a great little machine, and has been pretty durable (candle wax poured in it, still works great).

Although I do wish the thermal design was better, and wish it had switchable graphics (for batt life), this laptop is probably the best one I have owned.

After buying this laptop, I recommend asus products to all of my friends, and family.

Wish the bios wasn't locked..

Haven't used the headphone jack as a s/pdif jack as of yet, but I only really noticed that it had the capability about a month ago (great feature if you are into audio).

I mentioned the audio chip going out, but for the output, nothing has gone bad.
Supports high quality sample rates, which makes it great for djing or recording.

I wish I had a bigger HDD, but meh.

questions? email oninokami@gmail.com
I could help you choose a new laptop as well. just tell me what you want to do with it, and what siz

Great Specs, Significant Battery Problem

Comments: Would be a great machine if battery life was as advertised, or even "better".

Shouldn't have to RMA a battery in under a year, much less a second battery in under 8 months.

Very disappointed given the price tag.

Comments: Hopefully they don't just reformat it and send it back with the same problem...

I've been a long-time ASUS buyer, mainly motherboards and such though. I decided to venture into their laptops because of this and am very disappointed, to say the least.

Bad overheating problems

Comments: When I first got the computer, I even had some problems with just random things that made me mad such as random slowness or shutting down. I had to restart my laptop multiple times a day (this doesn't apply anymore, it stopped after about a month).

It's a good computer if you can figure out a way to fix the overheating. If I can't figure this out, I will be trying to sell it and get a new one.
