Screen Dead Upon Arrival 7/8/2020 3:59:49 PM

Pros: Despite the broken screen (motherboard defect, or lcd connection problem), the machine is wicked fast performance wise.
Keyboard was a pleasure to use.
Nice backlighting on the keys, and great ventilation for the processors.

Cons: I had the computer in my hands for 3 hours before getting upset and deciding to box her up for a return.
Clearly, their are some serious issues going on. Black screen on boot up. Inability to finish out restarts. OS and gpu are unable to detect native screen.

Overall Review: Great speedy tactile laptop botched by lousy internal periperal components and/or malfunctioning hardware.

I sincerely other less computer-savvy people don't end up with a lemon like I did. This is a first for me- cars, consoles, phones, pet-cats- never had i really ended up with a lemon before.

Buyer beware 7/2/2020 11:00:34 PM

Pros: Sturdy chassis. Looks great.

Cons: The armory crate software for the keyboard is a nightmare to use. Looked on many other sites with various people having the same issue and there are a bunch of steps to troubleshoot it.

Overall Review: I would not buy this laptop again. You would think that at this price point they could have done a better job at making a quality laptop. First time I've been disappointed with an ASUS.

Great value 6/28/2020 5:40:04 AM

Pros: HDMI in the proper place, the rear. Looks great on 50 inch tv.

Cons: Single channel memory is stock. Easy to upgrade though.

Overall Review: Great for my needs after upgrading to duel channel memory, which is easy. Haven't had any problems with games or with rendering projects.

Everything I hoped it would be! [EDITED] 6/25/2020 8:50:42 AM

Pros: I've had this laptop for a month now, works as advertised.
Typing feels smooth. Dedicated buttons are nice. Armoury Crate comes installed. Track pad is smooth unlike what is said in the reviews for some TUF models. Speakers are great. I've rarely seen temperatures over 80 degrees, and considering I live in a hot climate, I'm okay with that, but I've only tested 2 games thus far, Guild Wars 2 and Witcher 3.

Cons: Things to note:
-USB ports are a bit stiff
-I wish ROGS came with a numpad. This model does not have the numpad that lights up on the track pad
-Switching the refresh rate on windows display options only gives 120hz and 48hz as options.
-I haven't found a way turn off only the strip light yet.

EDIT: Within the second month, the left speaker suddenly stopped working.
I googled it and speaker problems seem to be a common issue with some of the ROGs.
I attempted many fixes and none helped. I contacted ASUS and they asked me to reinstall the sound drivers (which I'd done before). I followed their instructions. Left speaker still doesn't work. So they asked that I send it in. I do not have the money to do so right now, so it looks like I'm just going to have a laptop with one defective speaker. Which sucks considering the money I spent on this, and the fact that it's brand new when nothing should be going wrong. Everything is still fine through headphones.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this laptop. [EDIT: I'm not sure anymore, I love everything about this laptop aside from that defective speaker issue.]

Great gaming laptop 6/20/2020 8:52:15 AM

Overall Review: This laptop is amazing! I decided to upgrade my current laptop that I use for coding, and decided to go all out and take my gaming mobile too. I have not been disappointed. This laptop can handle everything I play with everything at high settings. After owning it for a few weeks, I decided I wanted to try upgrading it. I have upgraded my PC before, but never a laptop. I wasn't sure what I was getting into. I added a second hard drive and another stick of RAM, and it was incredibly easy and only took a few minutes. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. When it comes time to buy another laptop, I will definitely be looking at the ASUS ROG lineup.

Powerful Beauty 6/15/2020 7:29:25 AM

Overall Review: This is a wonderful machine. Aside from only coming with a single 8Gig stick of RAM, leaving you with single-channel performance (I would highly advice investing in another 8 gig stick of DDR4 RAM for this thing, like I did), this thing packs a punch and is very aesthetically pleasing. I love the RGB lightbar around the sides. Having a spare 2.5 inch drive bay is wonderful for storage expansion. Gets a little loud playing heavier games and I'd recommend finding a way to elevate it a little to allow some airflow under the chassis, but seems pretty decent with thermals otherwise. 120Hz monitor is slick!

I have a desktop gaming PC I use as my main machine with a 2070 and an i9-9900K and gaming on this laptop doesn't seem like much of a step down. Glad to have a little more portability!

Owner of a few weeks 6/11/2020 7:26:35 PM

Pros: Definitely a good budget laptop that performs well out of the box with 120hz screen and a decent gpu. That 9300h isnt a bad cpu either for a quad core. Upgrade the ram to 16gigs and you are set. Got overwatch and gtav on default running between 100-120 fps. Get it you wont regret it.

Cons: Gets hot, just buy a cooler.

Overall Review: Why havent you bought this yet?
