ASUS with another fantastic laptop

ASUS ROG G752VT-DH72 G-Sync Gaming Laptop 6th Generation Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 128 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M 3 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 10 Home 64-Bit
ASUS ROG G752VT-DH72 G-Sync Gaming Laptop 6th Generation Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 128 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M 3 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 10 Home 64-Bit

Pros: pros are as advertised, while a little big and bulky a good substitute for any desktop machine. I owned a ASUS g75vw before this module and I'm sure this wont be the last ASUS ROG I buy

Cons: None at the fault of the laptop.

Overall Review: Its important to note that some people have been reporting issues in regards to the keyboard not working, I ran into this issue. After spending some time with ASUS support I was about to file a RMA to have it services (shame since I just got the unit). But it finally dawned on me that I had recently updated the BIOS via ASUS Live Update (updated to BIOS 214). So to see if that was the issue I ran WinFlash with a /nodate to revert back to BIOS version 205, and boom, the keyboard worked perfectly. So while the Laptop is working perfectly its important to note that software can be just as buggy as hardware. I still have a formal report filed with ASUS and will come back and update this review if I happen to run into any other issues.

Most Critical Review

Would be nice if it worked...

Cyborg R.A.T.7 Infection CCB437080020/04/1 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser Mouse
Cyborg R.A.T.7 Infection CCB437080020/04/1 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser Mouse

Pros: looks good? Nice normal mouse i guess.

Cons: Well.... As a normal mouse it works fine... but who the hell wants a $100 normal mouse... I bought this mouse for the gaming features and the software from Cyborg's website wont detect the mouse at all. Cyborg told me it was an issue with the mouse and were very helpful in the support process to get it fix. But heres the kicker, 2 week after i sent it in to be fixed i get it back and it still doesnt work. Perhaps im just a very unlucky guy but this mouse is a gamble, it works or it doesnt. gl

Solid Headphones

JBL Synchros S300 Premium On-Ear Headphones for iOS with built-in remote/Microphone - White/Red
JBL Synchros S300 Premium On-Ear Headphones for iOS with built-in remote/Microphone - White/Red

Pros: -Good sound Quality -Comfortable -Comes with a nice travel case (ill be using it a lot) -Got for a very reasonable price

Cons: So my biggest issue right now seems to be not the headphone, but the cable that comes with the headphones. The Cable is a 3.5 to 2.5 mm male to male cable so replacing it wont be an issue, but the cable it comes with has a little controller build in for phone use (which works well with phones i might add) but i use these headphones while at my desk. When ever connected to my PC the audio does something funky, it get really quiet and dim unless the middle button on the controller is held down. Currently my work around is a clip that came with the cable i just have clamped down on the button and everything works fine, but i do plan on getting another cable.

Overall Review: Over all i like these headphones, i docked the one egg not because of any issue with the headphones but the cable itself, which can be fixed by spending another 5 bucks, which is alright since the cable is a little shorter than i would like to have anyways.

Pros: Works well as an input converter.

Cons: cons for me: None cons for the majority of people out there: A lot if you expected this to do something else.

Overall Review: I think people have the wrong idea about what this cable does. Say for instance you want to hook up a PS2 (RCA) up to a Computer Monitor (HDMI). You still need a way to convert the signal so the monitor knows what the PS2 is saying. This cord dose NOT convert the signal it just is a cable conversion, they make special conversion boxes for that. This cable is only useful on its own if both ends of it use the same signal. To all the people out there that don't know much about technology be sure you do some research on Google to make sure what ever your trying to hook up use the same signal.
