Pros: Very durable and high quality built. Easy to maintain. With 4gb of DDR3 is able to run many games and do multi tasking with ease. No heating problems. Good speakers. Great webcam. Very attractive
Cons: Touchpad takes time to get used to. It does not cook coffee
Overall Review: I still can't believe that this thing costs under $400. I have it for 6 months so far and can't complain about anything. It served me better then any other laptop I ever had. Worth every penny, and it is very durable. HP really did a great job on this one. And, I was afraid that screen is not going to be bright enough after reading the reviews, but the screen can be even too bright. I keep mine on middle brightness level and it is more than enough.
Pros: Regardless of what other reviews said, I still liked the speakers a lot. You have to be realistic with your expectations of the built-in monitor speakers because the speaker driver is usually very small. I'd say great job Asus on the speaker and great job on the overall design of the monitor. Looks absolutely stunning.
Cons: Since this is supposed to be a computer monitor and not a toy, then this product unfortunately completely fails in its category. I am a big fan of Asus products but I consider this the worst buy of my life, without any exaggeration. The screen has terrible color reproduction, text is very blurry and it will give you headache. Whether you are watching a movie, editing video or photos, or playing games the screen is too sharp and does not reproduce visuals to any reliable accuracy. If you are using this monitor just for steady images, then you might be ok with it. Otherwise, it will just give you pain. Do yourself a huge favor and stay away from this line of Asus monitors. They are gorgeous but they are useless.
Pros: I was really septic about buying this item, I didn't know what to expect. I have Vista 64 bit, Vista 32 bit, and Windows 7 installed on my Toshiba laptop. I just plugged the device in and tell Windows to search drivers online, and boom! in couple seconds drivers were installed and everything worked amazingly. Don't bother searching for drivers on Roswell website or something like that becacue it is Realtek chip so it is easy for Windows to find it. My integrated Atheros adapter got me either poor signal or disconnected in my dorm apartment which was going on my nerves and now with this baby i ALWAYS have excellent signal and my internet is 10 times faster. Don't even hesitate for a moment and if you need wireless adapter go with this one! It is outstanding!
Cons: Loves fingerprints :)
Overall Review: Great Job Roswell!
