The Chimera Series is Beast 11/10/2019 9:44:30 AM

Pros: Crazy Powerful. Plenty of m2 slots and room for more ram.

The overclocked GTX 1080 is plenty fast for the 1920x1080 5ms 144hz screen.

Comes with 2 power bricks. (It can run AND charge the battery on just one on normal settings.)

Not crazy loud!

ASUS ROG is definately my go to for performance, and they have never let me down.

Cons: Had to add a few parts myself to fill in the gaps for the budget version of the Chimera (RAM increased to 32gb, 500gb Samsung evo 970)

Kind of a pro, though, as I got to put in a top notch ssd to add to the existing 250gb ssd space. Now it has 2TB or sshd, 250gb OS SSD and a 500GB game SSD.

Power hungry!

Looked wonderful. :( 9/24/2019 3:05:40 PM

Pros: The specifications were great. Unboxing it, the laptop looked wonderful. It felt like it was really solidly built.

Cons: The keyboard did not work at all. Right out of the box, first time powered up, and after multiple reboots, still nothing. I restarted multiple times, tried to get it to go into BIOS, it wouldn't even do that. No lights under the keys, no indication the machine was registering button pushes in any way.

Great, except the keyboard lags. 9/8/2019 6:47:30 PM

Pros: - Performance is excellent. It has room to improve in some areas, but they are few.
- Quick to load from disc, even from the SSHD "data" drive.
- Great network card. I can hit 40 MBytes down, no issue. I actually didn't realize my ISP let me go that high until I got this.

Cons: - The integrated keyboard will randomly enter a bad state, at which point input lags horribly. Suppose you type ten characters on the keyboard; the laptop will crunch through them one by one at a rate of one per second. This will continue until you reboot. USB devices seem unaffected. This issue apparently dates back to 2013 with other ASUS models, though. Google "ASUS ROG keyboard lag."

- And as a result of the above, the RGB keyboard lighting is just irrelevant.

- Asus driver installers (for this model) are questionable. They're batch files that windows tries to block, they don't always work, and they don't tell you why not unless you add a `pause` at the end of the batch script. Sometimes the error message is, literally, "No more information." Luckily windows figures out most of the drivers during normal updates, but my Realtek audio is out of date according to Asus. And it will remain as such, because the installer didn't.

- The border around the LCD screen has gaps in it, so debris can get in there. I saw another review complain about this, and it does not appear to be a one-off. It just isn't sealed by design.

Overall Review: This is a good laptop despite the harsh criticism. It should absolutely not have the flaws it does, given it comes from ASUS and costs yes-exactly-that-much-money, but such is life I guess. It is worth buying and keeping, but check out the competition as well.

A true desktop replacment 7/10/2019 11:34:30 AM

Pros: - Extremly fast
- Fans are amazing, they get noisy but they do the job perfectly
- Amazing design and amazing hardware

Cons: - Kind of heavy, around 5 KG
- 2 chargers makes it hard to move around

Overall Review: So when i bought this laptop I didnt really understand how fast it is
Let me tell you, it really is amazing, I knew from the specs that it is going to be ultra fast but still i was really surprised
You need to know that this laptop is heavy, its not for your daily use in your lap just going out with friend and carrying it out with you, but its a true replacment for a desktop.
Really amazing power, althought the dual charger thing is kind of annoying, hard to move it around xD

Wicked Fast, Quality Built, Stays Cool 6/27/2019 8:19:29 PM

Pros: i7 8750, GTX 1080 version. Bought this on sale for about $1,900. Was nervous about heat, bought liquid metal but I wont be needing it. I'm showing 130FPS on Arma3 at Ultra in showcases. Great for Escape from Tarkov and high settings. This thing blows my desktop out of the water for sure.

Cons: Windows10 bloatware, mcafee

Pros: It certainly lives up to its name as a desktop replacement in the form of a laptop. It is well built and has the necessary upgradability if needed for the user when it comes to ram and hard drive expansion. It has a powerful enough CPU and GPU to run almost certainly anything you might have to throw at it.

Cons: Hardware:
CPU - I had already done my research and knew what I needed of my processor; thus in order to keep the temperature down, I manually limited the power of the laptop to keep the Intel Boost from activating (the temperature hasn't passed 65° C). This has done wonders for my laptop when I push it to its limits without the boost.

GPU - It will depend on what games you run, but after having completely decreased the range of the base clock and memory clock offsets, the GPU won't surpass 80° C (before it was pushing into the low 90° C). Though annoyingly so for certain games that cause the GPU to do full utilization upon start-up, the fans get quite loud as expected to keep the temperature down. Afterwards, when running the game for a while, the fan noise levels out to a reasonable amount that the audio can mask it.

On a side note, the sheer size of the laptop was larger than I expected with two power bricks in the back to plug-in. You will want to have your laptop on a flat table or desk with enough depth to make space for the entire unit and its accessories.

Overall Review: It is plenty fast with the M.2 PCIe SSD upon boot-up and loading software on the 256GB drive. The 2TB drive is large enough for me to keep all of my data on of which I mirror a copy onto an external drive as a backup. I turned off the RGB lighting for the keyboard since I use an external keyboard and mouse. I had also gone into the BIOS to turn off the ROG logo sound upon starting the laptop. I do wish if it were possible to change the color of the red lit power button and the large ROG logo on the other side of the screen. Plain and simple, more versatility with the software that comes with the laptop would be appreciated.

Great performer for gaming/productivity 2/12/2019 9:05:42 PM

Pros: I like the keyboard on this product. Easy to type , good accentuation and response time. Great for gaming - not as good as a desktop grade elite mechanical keyboard - but gets the job done, might want to still use a custom keyboard if you are more into productivity.

My unit seems to stay cool and quiet for the most part. The RTX 2080 handles all I can throw at it so far . Not as fast as the i9 9900k models out there for the CPU intensive workloads/games but nothing at 1080p at the moment that can force it below 100 fps. The fans can get loud at full turbo mode but it is not really a problem as for normal use they stay quiet and while gaming any respectable headset can drone it out . Given that it sports dual 12 V fans the sound isn't particularly high pitched which is a pro for my personal taste. Again, good cooling is important in a laptop of this caliber , so I'd rather have it this way than having it bust 1 year from now.

The design is pretty good, metal exterior, smooth velvety palm area which stays cool under load. RGB works fine for those that are into it : I like that it is a bit more toned down compared to other models.

Very fast storage, amazing network capabilities , beating my custom MiMo desktop wireless card ( my room is quite far away from the main router).

Cons: Low battery life, but what would you expect in a laptop with OCed cpu/gpu with Gsync panel that needs 560W ( 2 power bricks of 280W each).

1 year warranty only , altho Asus support let me know Newegg Canada is one of their authorised resellers so I could add 1 year to this . A bit of a shame considering one of their main rival the MSI Titan has similar configuration for same price and offers 2 years + mechanical keyboard - the lack of Gsync and better looks on Asus did sway me towards this model though as I consider Gsync a necessity for any high refresh panel especially for future proofing.

Overall Review: It is a rather heavy laptop at 10+ lbs but doesn't seem as bulky as my other desktop replacement machines - but do beware it is quite heavy and you'll probably need a good large backpack ( add some shock protection and insulation to protect your sweet new machine).

Would have loved for the package to contain some RoG merch/accessoires. As it comes it's pretty much just the laptop and nothing else.
