Good gaming laptop, but beware of Keyboard issue

Pros: - Bought this on Black Friday 2018 sale for about $1100, added in a 16gb DDR4 chip and replaced the standard 128GB M.2 2280 with a Samsung nvme M.2 500gb SSD, performs well
- Room for a 2nd 2.5" drive, I'm using a Samsung 860 1TB as a storage drive, performs well
- When fans come on, can be moderately loud under full load, but relatively quiet for a performance laptop

Cons: - Some well-known defects (see 'other'), I experienced the keyboard one, but the warranty RMA seems to have cleared that up ok.
- Doesn't have the graphic oomf of a 1070/1080, but also won't melt your lap or sound like a 747. I still use it with a laptop cooler though to make sure return airflow doesn't get blocked
- only a HD screen vs 4K (but other editions of this with a 4K screen apparently don't handle well with a 1060); that said, if you only need 1080p, it performs well and will save you $$
- Can only get to HDD/2nd Ram bank under quick-remove bottom panel as opposed to full mobo

Overall Review: - if you need good 4K, go with at least a GTX 1070+ model, or the RTX models rather than this one with the 4K screen
- These and other Strix models have keyboards that can fail and cause direct power loss / hard power-off just by depressing keys near the center of the keyboard after awhile. Mine was fine for about 5 months of use and then began having random hard power-downs from keyboard (but also randomly aside from the keypresses). Warranty RMA replacement of keyboard / Mobo definitely corrected the issue and it's been stable since

Beyond Pleased.

Pros: Beautiful design. Smooth operation. Screen is gorgeous. Keyboard seems durable. Much Thinner and lighter than expected.

Cons: Fans are a little loud. Wish the RGB had slightly more customization.

Overall Review: This was my first laptop in 10 years and couldn't be happier. I'm excited to utilize it's gaming capabilities while being able to flawlessly execute school work and dabble in video editing. I Would highly recommend for casual gamer, student, or personal use.

Easy to use

Pros: This product has been nothing but stellar since I got it. The computer is fast and easy to use. This is my first hybrid hard drive and I was unsure about how it would preform; but the hard drive has blown away my expectations. Also the speakers are great, which I wasn't expecting from a laptop.

Cons: The fans are noisy when you don't use the "Silent Mode"

I do not recommend, this laptop has cause nothing but problems.

Pros: Stats are good on paper but and when the device runs fine when connected to a charger, quick access tray in the back made it easy to upgrade to a TB SSD.

Cons: Battery life is the biggest hindrance. The case is this fake carbon fiber feel and is very flimsy., and then mine has an issue where any sort of pressure on the keys cause the device to short out.

Overall Review: As an I.T. Systems and Network Support Specialist, I use this device all the time for work and it was great while it worked, but then a month into owning the device, if i applied a moderate amount of pressure on the keys (specifically the F and G) the laptop would shut down. I sent the device out for repairs and after taking a month to get it back to me, due to the repair center not having the parts needed to fix it they sent it back to me. Within the 3 months warranty that is given from the Asus repair center the device had the issue again. After contacting them for a replacement they refused and wanted me to send it out for repairs again.

TLDR: purchase a different the product is unreliable and the customer support is atrocious even with the best warranty you can get from here.

Very fast & reliable, track pad needs improvement.

Pros: Very fast and responsive. Processing speeds are insane! Videos and in-game graphics are beautifully rendered as well.

Cons: Battery life is very limited, especially when playing videos or games. Normal run time gaming is less than 1.5 hours on full charge. Built in tracks pad is nearly useless. There is only one little section that actually functions as it should. I normally use a mouse when gaming, but surfing the internet and normal everyday usage is a major pain using this track pad!!

Overall Review: Overall, a good computer for the money. Please fix the track pad issue Asus!!

Pros: Fast laptop boot NVME Drive Rocks!
Beautiful Packaging and Box!
Beautiful Case solid laptop no flex, keys feel great look good and even the track pad works wonderful (I hate track pads)
Screen colors look great and response time is good to for gaming.

Cons: First one was DOA didn't leave a good taste in my mouth but hey every company has some kind of duds right?
If you are buying this for college and looking for Battery life with settings set at low performance and brightness I am getting about 2.5 to 3 Hours on a full charge 2 on full performance at most

Overall Review: I would buy this laptop again in a heart beat
Newegg handled the RMA wonderful and the lady was awesome who handled it
