WASTE OF MONEY FOR GAMING *Do not recomend*

Pros: -Looks nice
-Cool keyboard
-Easy for typing

Cons: -Plays the low end games like cs:go at around 40 FPS if lucky
-Cannot handle 60 fps games such as Overwatch
-GTX 960m is an AWFUL graphics card for 1k$ laptop
- Cannot run 1080p on youtube
-Awful customer service at ASUS I sent this product in three times to fix a corrupted driver and they replaced the wrong thing three times.

Other Thoughts: -I do not recomend this product. Huge waste of 1.3k$. Runs just as well as my 400$ Lenovo laptop from 2010.
-Save your money on this computer and do not buy

Worst Ever

Pros: It has 10-key and I like the OS. That's all I can say.

Cons: This machine, which has only been very gently used, needed sent back to the manufacturer for repairs after only 7 months of light use. I never bothered putting anything new on it after that, because the manufacturers just replaced the hard drive (which wasn't the problem) and sent it back. The "fade to white" screen issue slowly came back and now I've owned the machine almost 16 months and it is totally unusable for the 2nd time.

Other Thoughts: Would never recommend, I wish I could go back in time and buy ANYTHING ELSE.

It's not what I expected...

Pros: Looks great, look backlit keys, and runs decent.

Cons: It has an overheating problem. The laptop gpu has a throttle temp. of around 75c and it throttles in just about every game I play. If I run at the lowest settings it's fine but I'm not a big fan of shooting at little moving smudges. This is a common problem and is very annoying to play with.

Dear Valued Customer,


Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with your temps. Those temperatures are very normal for laptops while gaming. If you like you can invest in a laptop cooling pad to keep them lower. Make sure to keep the vents clean with an air duster at least once a month to avoid dust build up. Feel free to contact me if there are any further issues. My email is cl-tom@asus.com and our 24/7 support line is posted below. Have a great day!

Decent Product, wouldn't recommend as a gaming laptop

Pros: clean computer, sleek design, keys are durable and feel good, works fine as a browsing laptop and can run some games that are cpu dependent, a small amount of it is up-gradable, screen is pretty good nothing i can point out as flaws but there are better ones

Cons: the gtx 960m is pathetic for the price you pay, i would recommend paying that extra $300 or more just to get a proper gpu, it cant handle anything that is gpu intensive, just look up a comparison it ranks below the 10th percentile on userbenchmark. speakers are not very good, gets very hot, i bought a cooler master fan pad and i don't game with the laptop without the pad under it.

Other Thoughts: its a pretty good machine but gaming is not a strong suit, i will not be using this as a gaming platform when my pc is finished, i dont think the $800 or so bucks is worth the price when you could go a couple hundred more and get a 1060 or 1070. And nowadays its just outdated so you would also have the benefit of getting a better cpu.

Hunk of Junk - Do Not Buy - ASUS product quality terrible and product service worse - New Egg Warranty & Support Unreliable

Pros: NOTHING AT ALL. Terrible product and terrible service. Do not trust the manufacturer warranty or their service center or New Egg to help at all during first year if problems arise.

LESSON LEARNED: Do not buy ASUS products and Do Not buy from New Egg

Cons: This product was flawed from the get go when bought last December. We tried to live through the weekly and biweekly blue and black screens until they became daily. We bought the 2 year New egg warranty but found out that it only kicks in AFTER the first year of the ASUS warranty. Lots of time on phone with ASUS tech support having us download new drivers and much more. Problem continued and then got worse. Finally sent in on RMA to be repaired in August. Problem was with "bad Pool Call" error message with no code. ASUS on phone said it was display related and that they would replace our display. Instead, after shipping off computer to repair center (at our cost of $16.25 for packaging), repair center put in new power supply and did nothing to fix problem. After receiving unit back in August, it seemed to work for the first week and then started doing the same thing. We again tried to live with it but it has now become a daily ordeal of multiple reboots after multiple blue and black screens. Called ASUS back and demanded new computer. They refused. We have to send back at another cost of $16.45 now to have the same repair shop in California (we live in Washington) try to fix the problem they were supposed to have fixed the first time. ASUS Customer Service does not care (third party call center) and will not do anything other than force an expensive and time consuming RMA every time.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT buy ASUS - go with Dell, HP or other reliable service
Buy locally so you can get service locally
New Egg was useless with our problems once they had our money. Would not help with our problems with ASUS.

Strong Performance and Excellent Style

Pros: Beautiful build, the red accents are gorgeous and accents the sleek black design.
Very powerful, has managed to run games like Dark Souls 3 at 1080 with high settings and reach 60fps
Good battery life when not gaming.
Keyboard is very comfortable and the backlighting excellent.
The screen itself is magnificent, the resolution spectacular and the color output very accurate and bright.

Cons: The laptop itself is a major fingerprint magnet, especially on the lid.
Comes with some bloatware that can be really annoying

Other Thoughts: Overall, this laptop is amazing, and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone interested. As my first foray into PC gaming, it has proven to perform and run brilliantly.

GREAT computer

Pros: Very fast
Great Display
Plenty of storage
Plays games great (most of them at 1080p 60fps)
Overall great bang for your buck

Cons: Not much honestly.
It doesn't have an SSD, that's about it.

Other Thoughts: Another thing that is not so much of a con rather than something that annoys me. When you plug in headphones to the headphone jack, it does not connect automatically, you have to wait for a message to pop up so that you can approve it. This gets annoying when i plug in my headphones and the message doesn't pop up and I have to keep unplugging and plugging back in and then waiting like 30secs to a min for the message to come up. I don't know, that kinda just annoys me when I want to play or watch Netflix and it just doesn't work for a good minute or 2. Other than that this laptop really is great, one of my favorite purchases in a while. I went from not being able to play Metro Last Light, all low settings on 800x600 resolution, window mode on my other $500 laptop, which was able to handle games like LoL, CSGO and COD fine, to being able to play Metro at 1080p on high and ultra settings with solid frames. That's something that makes me smile.
