Not to bad

ASUS K501LX-EB71 Gaming Laptop 5th Gene Intel Core i7 5500U (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit
ASUS K501LX-EB71 Gaming Laptop 5th Gene Intel Core i7 5500U (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: -Backlit keyboard (have to press the 'fn' key + f3/f4 for brightness levels). -The finish/design is nice. -Seems to run things smooth... dont intend nor have tried to play very demanding games on it. -usb 3.0 -Touch-pad is pretty good

Cons: -As others have said, the screen isnt the best, but isnt bad... seems to not like windowed text (like text only pop-ups, kinda hard to explain) makes it looks a little blurry -The VGA web cam

Overall Review: Seems the SSD it comes with is a M.2 form, but has a 2.5" slot as well. Cant seem to find the memory slots at first glance... and the screws are a bit soft, so have to be careful removing/tightening them. The 256GB version, has about a 95 GB "OS" partition (with about 70 GB free) then a 127 GB "Data" partition (all free), with a 20 GB hidden recovery partition.

Perfect Match

Overall Review: Perfect match to the RAM that was already installed in my Asus FX506 to bring it from the single 8 gig stick to 16 and become dual channel

Second time's the charm...

Overall Review: Had to RMA the first one I received due to excessive IPS glow in the bottom corners, but the second one is perfect. And overall it's an excellent display.

Pros: Pretty cheap and reliable.

Cons: CPU-Z reads it as 2.5-3-3-8

Overall Review: It gets the job done.

Meh

Was going to give 3 stars but went with 4 because technically they were correct in the time frame I'd get the product. I ordered without looking that it would come from China and after a few days of it not shipping I looked at the seller and all the recent negative reviews. But four days into the order, I got an email from them explaining their situation and a time frame of when the product would get here. Long story short, it took 20 days to arrive, and was received well packaged, so meh.
