Same problem twice. 7/20/2019 2:57:10 PM

Pros: -Great laptop for the time it worked. Operated very efficiently and effective.

Cons: - A little under a year I had a problem where this laptop would simply restart itself for no reason after freezing. That was still under warranty, so I sent it in, and for awhile, up until recently in fact, it worked well again. Now it has the same problem once again. However it had been repaired was a short term fix, and I need a laptop that works long-term.

Overall Review: -Normally I'm a big fan of ASUS products, and I'll compliment this laptop when it worked as well as the ASUS Support team for helping to fix it the first time, but having such a usage-crippling problem, and the same problem at that, come back only my second year owning it has given me a serious case of buyer's remorse. ASUS, you can do better than this kind of hardware, I know you can. This one was a big disappointment.

Dear Valued Customer,

I do understand the inconvenience this may have caused you, your dissatisfaction with the quality of the product and your recent customer service experience. All ASUS products undergo intensive quality control testing and inspections, this is a random problem. We do value our customers and take negative customer service experience very seriously. This is not the quality of service expected from ASUS. We do stand behind our product and we continuously strive to improve our approach and processes in order to achieve customer service excellence. If are still having issues with the laptop and need further assistance with the product, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and I would be more than happy to help.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

It was great at first. But came with a myrid of problems over time 7/13/2018 1:28:30 AM

Pros: At first:
great light laptop that could run games decently like FFXIV and overwatch at high settings at 40+ fps stable.

Now (2 years in):
Software updates gimp the gpu and cpu by throttling it. At first I thought it was the fans and cleaned them thoroughly but it never fixed the problem., but as soon as I rolled back drivers the problems went away.

Cons: Now-

the touchpad does not work anymore when right clicking. Luckily tapping and left clicking still works so its still usable, but what a hassle. With Windows 10 forced updates, it seems that being able to rollback drivers is no longer an option and I'm stuck with sub 30 fps.

Overall Review: invest in something with MSI or Razor instead.

The hinge holding the screen is going to break 3/18/2018 7:52:25 AM

Pros: It's a decent little computer, and is pretty good for some light 3d gaming.

Cons: The hinge that holds the screen broke in less than a year. Search google for "asus K501UW-NB72 broken hinge"

Excellent Entry-level Gaming Laptop 2/26/2018 4:26:13 PM

Pros: Fast, RAM and HDD/SSD upgradable, sturdy, backlit keyboard, dedicated Nvidia graphics. One year of accident damage warranty.

Cons: Only 2gb of Video memory, gaming requires major tweaking (turning off processes etc) WiFi card doesn't work after 6 months of ownership. The plastic underbody feels kinda cheap.

Overall Review: It would be nice if the laptop included an IPS display and more video memory to run the latest games. Overall a very good laptop. I owned it over a year and I am happy with my purchase. I give this laptop 5 stars because of the ASUS accident worry free one year warranty. I had to send in my unit for repairs and ASUS fixed it free of charge because my warranty was still in effect. This saved me from buying another laptop or spending out of pocket for repairs.

Fantastic until it's not 2/11/2018 1:20:51 PM

Pros: Lightweight
Very portable
Quick SSD
Lots of ports to plug in whatever accessories you have
Could handle just about any game I threw at it. Including Witcher, Ark (Lower FPS), and The Division
Would crash from time to time towards the end of its life

Cons: LARGEST ISSUE:
3 months after the limited 12-month warranty expires my 750GB HDD that holds most of everything on my computer completely fails and cannot be restored. I hesitantly contacted customer support and was told that I would have to pay for any repairs and that there was nothing else that they could do. I luckily purchased this laptop after much research on black Friday of 2016 for $719 which was a great deal. However, this is a $1,000+ laptop that just suddenly stops after a little over a year? With no options for support? That is highly unacceptable. Luckily none of the parts are integrated and I will potentially be able to purchase a new HDD or even an SSD and upgrade... but the fact that I am left high and dry after such a large purchase (for me) makes me a little salty over the matter. I will definitely hesitate before investing my limited resources in any ASUS products from here on out.

Smaller Issues:
Audio jack and sound drivers always giving me issues, along with mic support being unruly
Gets very hot when placed on a cloth surface (to be expected)
Screen is a little lackluster and doesn't have the robust colors I would like
Trackpad is sub-par
Came with quite a bit of bloatware
Windows 10 is, of course, a clown fiesta to deal with

Overall Review: Very disappointed in my first ASUS computer purchase. I had heard many great things about the brand and was hoping to purchase a stable high-quality laptop that would last for years, that doesn't seem to be the case. I would dissuade anyone from purchasing this particular product, and I would heavily caution anyone looking to purchase this brand.

Pros: specs

Cons: laptop makes noise. fan goes on every 5 seconds. it's on and off. the track pad is bad. the left side doesn't always click in the bottom left corner. whenever i have headphones in and i take them out and then try to play a video the sound doesn't go on , i have to put the headphones back in play the video and take them out for the speakers to play again.

Overall Review: you get what you pay for. next time im buying a quality laptop
