Pros: I really wanted to love this laptop when I first got it. I like Asus hardware and they have been a staple in the industry for 15+ years.
1. Price/performance is exactly on par for its hardware and range.
2. I personally love the matte black finish, a transition away from the over the top designs from years past.
3. Very fast boot times.
4. Very little bloatware installed.
5. Has the performance necessary to play most modern games on High and at least Medium settings.
6. Fans are super quiet while idle. You won't be able to tell its even booted.
Cons: As I spent days running it through its paces, more and more "minor" issues kept creeping up, driving the overall score of the laptop further and further down.
1. The monitor is just bad. I have the LG 144Hz version and its NTSC gamut isn't just bad, it's almost embarrassing for a gaming laptop. Whites are washed, color isn't rich or "full", and there is light bleed along the bottom bezel on black screens. This is just not acceptable and I am a big fan of LG screens, owning a LG phone and LG C8 TV.
2. As bad as the monitor is, the wireless card is worse. Mine has a Realtek 8822CE Wireless LAN 802.11ac PCI-E NIC with a maximum link speed of 144Mbps. This is awful for a WiFi card in this day and age. What's worse is the bluetooth. Using multiple different bluetooth capable headphones, they consistently drop and reconnect while sitting directly in front of the laptop. And by conistently, I mean ever 30 - 60 seconds. This is not a "once in a while issue"
3. Keyboard RGB requires having the right software installed, its not by default, and then you are limited to either the default rainbow setting, or red. That's it.
4. The keyboard keys themselves feel cheap and I would not recommend it if you need a laptop that doubles as a workstation, without the use of a separate keyboard. I personally prefer chiclet keys on a laptop, which this is not. Think HP Pavilion keys. Its nearly identical to this laptop
5. Heat levels are a major concern. Both CPU and GPU approach 90c under gaming load. With the CPU getting as high as 87c. The GPU seems to reach a max of 83c, which isn't terrible. But that's with fans full blast.
6. The fans are loud. Louder than any other gaming laptop I've had in the past. I can live with loud fan noise if it keeps my CPU and GPU at or below 80c, but this laptop does not.
7. Heat is dumped out to the right, instead of the back, for what I believe is the GPU. So that means its dumping directly on 70% of the populations dominant hand. if you're gaming and not using an external monitor, you're going to feel it and your hand is going to sweat.
8. Windows Home. Man, Windows Home. This one really annoys me as I hate the Home version and it could be a valuable selling point to include Pro and eat the extra $25 of bulk licensing cost.
9. Battery life. What role is this laptop supposed to fill? If its a gaming laptop, it comes up short. If its a productivity/work laptop, I can't attend a meeting that I'm hosting a WebEx or Teams meeting and be expected to carry my battery pack if its longer than an hour.
Overall Review: When I set out to review this laptop, I wanted to truly put it through its paces. I also wanted to draw a direct comparison to my gaming desktop. My measurement for any suitable gaming laptop is its ability to replace my desktop if I am traveling or it is in use. As I write this review we are locked down due to Covid-19, which means my desktop is in use while working from home or the kids doing their school work, so there was time to really run some tests.
I also want to point out the tests below we all ran with the latest BIOS, Drivers, and Utilities installed.
Lastly, I want to point out you will want to perform the following actions before every day use.
1. Install all the latest Windows Updates
2. Uninstall McAfee, its garbage.
3. Install some basic tools, 7zip, CPU-Z, GPU-Z, HwInfo, HWMonitor, just to name a couple.
4. Install all the latest drivers and utilities. They can be found here. https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ASUS-TUF-Gaming-FX505DV/HelpDesk/. Please be aware in order to update the AMD package you first have to run the "amdcleanuputility" in Safe Mode.
5. Update the BIOS. This is a risky proposition, but it is advised as the bios installed by default is from 2017.
Now on to the actual results.

In conclusion. This is a average to good laptop overall. But it doesn't do anything particularly well. It doesn't have the gaming type software options installed out the box you expect. It doesn't have Asus Aura installed so you can properly manage the RBG keyboard, just to name one.
It also doesn't have any productivity tool licenses you would expect if its intended to be anything more than a gaming/homework PC. Instead it has a trial version of Office that you can get for free from MS anyways.
If you are in the market for a laptop you don't have to rely on a long battery life are would like the added benefit of being able to play most games on High and pretty much everything on Medium, you might as well pull the trigger and get something in this laptops price to performance ratio. And this one is a viable option.
However, I personally would spend the extra $300 and get something that is going to have a longer viable lifespan as it relates to gaming performance, and hopefully a much better quality keyboard, monitor, and wireless adapter too.
Did I mention how bad the light bleed is along the bezel and how much worse the WiFi and bluetooth performance is?
The main factors of this laptop is the shear power it provides. It has an AMD Ryzen 7 3750H CPU. This chip has a decent Vega 10 graphics built-in but most will just use the Nvidia Geforce RTX 2060 discrete GPU. It enabled me to play top Graphic-intensive games like Doom Eternal at the highest settings. I fully expected the system to get extremely hot. I was wrong. Asus has included hypercool technology. It's basically a set of 2 fans working in tandem with a heatpipe/heat sink setup to properly cool the device. There are a couple of innovations here I like (mainly because they work). 1. They symmetrically place the fans in the system to maximize heat dissipation. 2. They use an anti-dust control system that provides a tunnel around the edge of the fan out the back that reduces the likelihood of your heat sink fins getting caked with dust over time. In addition, the fans are controlled by the temperature of the system. The system got loud but never overly hot. Considering this is powering a 1920x1080 Full HD IPS screen at 144hz (where supported) and most games on the highest settings, it is amazing to me how smooth and cool it ran. The screen produces very good brightness, color, and sharpness in most if not all occasions. As a bonus, it's a matte screen so no glare to be found! Colors are vibrant, screen is bright, and the text is sharp and easy to read. It's nice to know that this laptop can be at home as easily playing a game, as it can organizing, creating, and reading documents. In regard to creating said documents, the keyboard on this is one of my absolute favorite things. Not only does it light up with RGB with movement control, but it is extremely comfortable to type on. So much so, that I opted to write this review on the laptop instead of my desktop. It's a full keyboard too. Number pad and all. The keys, to me, have a perfect amount of travel and the feeling of that classic keyboard click is spot-on. The ability to adjust the brightness of the keys and having the full RGB color spectrum is a nice touch. I also like the keyboards neighbor, the touch pad, having the ability to do multi-finger gestures to do certain actions.This thing has 3 USB type A slots on the left side (1 USB 2.0 2 USB 3.1 gen 1). You have a full HDMI 2.0 port adjacent to the USB ports. Most items people have are still of the A USB port variety. Also on the same side and rounding out the I/O ports, a headphone jack, and a Gigabit Ethernet port. The power cord appears on this side too, is the last in the line of ports and is of the right-angle variety. Normally, all the ports being on one side of a laptop bothers me, but this is a gaming laptop so the right side is kept free for maximum mouse mobility with no obstructions. This laptop has has Dolby DTS via headphone jack and included an equalizer in software. I was unable to test this feature, though I'd imagine it works well. As for the on-board speakers, I'm not blown away but it does get sufficiently loud. A built-in microphone array allows you to potentially talk to Cortana from across the room. Sometimes, she had trouble hearing me unless I was closer than 5 feet. There's a military rating of MIL-STD 810G. The bottom base of this laptop is solid. The monitor portion of it seems less than durable. I don't necessarily feel like it'll break under normal conditions, but it cloud be stronger. With normal use I don't see an issue. I can't tell if the shell of this is metal or plastic, but it seems relatively durable. The Storage here is a 512Gb PCIE SSD. As such, It's quick to load, has low power consumption and makes no noise. 16Gb of ram inside seems plenty for most games/tasks and I haven't run into a wall with that yet. The WiFi is fast and connects to my AC router without issue and at decent speeds. Range is also excellent even 3 levels down in my house. Price on sale (around $1000) is very good for what you receive.
When I first got it, a few of the items didn't work because of outdated software. After updating both the bios and all drivers and software, everything worked well without issues. They have MyAsus app which keeps your laptop up to date on drivers and allows you to check for hardware errors, has serial and model number information, and can scan your computer to fix it if something goes wrong. It's unobtrusive for the most part unless you call upon it though it does start with windows. Asus also included Armour Crate, an app that allows you to control power/lighting/fan profiles that adjust based on the game/app your working in. Just set up a profile, click it and there it goes. Next time set it to auto-run a profile based on running game/app. Most of the software Asus includes is actually useful and doesn't hamper the running of the machine. You'll find little reason to uninstall it. There are a couple games here and there that are basically advertising partners. Windows 10 Home is the OS chosen here and works fine for the most part.
The touch pad when tapped (not fully depressed for a click) has a noise that sounds like a loose gap that isn't supposed to be there. It makes a noise like something is loose. While it doesn't affect the performance, it is incredibly annoying and, if not intentional, points to a quality control issue. Every other laptop that does a "tap-to-click" has the touch pad solid and only once you fully press down does it make that standard click sound a touch pad makes. I personally think this was not on purpose. No USB-C for some might be an issue. It would be nice to have dedicated-button instead of using a FN key + F1-F12 to activate often-used adjustments. Array Microphone could be more sensitive from further away than 5 Feet. I couldn't get more than 4 hours or so with mixed gaming and standard web surfing. It really needs a bigger cell battery. In general, gamers usually plug in, but it would be nice to get 10 hours if you're not gaming and are off-charger. Fans can get very loud but after all, it is a gaming laptop. The screen isn't 4k but at this price, can you blame them? It would also be nice to have this as a touch screen. I realize many people scoff at the idea, but once you have it, you really see how useful it can be. Considering where the power button is (top-right above keyboard when laptop is open), I feel like it could have doubled as a fingerprint reader. When they work right, they are secure and super quick to get into a system. Given the location, it would have been ideal to put one there. I don't really get the idea of having 1 USB 2.0 port. Since USB 3.1 is backward-compatible, why not make them all 3.1 gen 1? This thing is a fingerprint magnet. Whether your hands are washed are not (They are right? Don't you give me Corona!) the fingerprints show up.
I'm really tired (as are you, I imagine) of computer companies putting software on a computer from an "advertising partner" just to make the laptop slightly cheaper than if they hadn't. Comparatively, Asus is a minor offender, but until it's gone, I'll complain. McAfee is useless today with windows security doing the job of malware and viruses. When it comes to protecting an OS from threats, whats the better company to protect it? The one who makes virus software to run on the OS, or the one who makes the actual OS? Windows has a decent security setup these days and a 3rd party virus program isn't only unnecessary, but reduces system performance. I'm asking the manufacturers to stop installing this stuff. No one wants it anymore, especially gamers, who know their way around a computer. In addition, it's redundant. I really think Asus ( like other companies) should figure out a way to update a bios within windows. Many others do this today. There shouldn't be any reason why I still have to update a UEFI bios either over Ethernet or USB while inside it. Although the process is seamless, it would be easier for everyone to just do it in windows and have it reboot.
Overall Review: On the whole, this Asus laptop is a good value for what you get. It has minimal extra software in comparison to other laptop makers. The hardware is fast, smooth and has virtually 0 hiccups after all updates are completed. It has excellent cooling design that is effective. The screen is great in almost every measurable and practical way and the discrete graphics are powerful enough to drive it with ease. The keyboard is comfortable to use and offers great color and motion customization. Watch out for those mostly-nit-picky items such as it being a fingerprint magnet, additional unneeded software, bios update complexity, touch pad quality control issues, battery life, no USB-C, no dedicated adjustment buttons and no fingerprint sensor. If you can deal with these and other small grievances and large positives, I see no reason not to recommend this laptop! Buy it and be happy for a while!
Pros: Aluminum screen shell and top of keyboard.
AMD Ryzen 7 mobile 3750H processor
16GB of memory DDR4 2400
AMD Vega 10 basic Graphics and NVIDIA 2060 RTX for gaming
144Mhz IPS screen
Cons: single channel memory but does have a spare slot for expanding it
RGB color adjustments had issues until software was updated.
Overall Review: The laptop has done very well, system is a 4 core. 8 threads and runs equivalent to Intel i5 processors. Graphics with the nVidia 2060 puts it in a strong side for games. Battery has held up well and I set it to charge max at 70 to keep the battery life on the system. When I did the gaming I was plugged in for best power on the laptop. It has held up in ARK and older game badlands as I am playing through it with a group of friends. Over all not a Power house gaming machine because of the processor but good for the average gamer.
if you spend the time updating things to the newest software it gives you the control to set the lighting to 1 color or how you like it. Otherwise it was just going through all of the colors as if you didn't have an board that supported the RGB keyboard. the WASD keeps are clear and do light up but not as much as I was expecting, but they are easy to find because they are white / clear vs the black with a touch of color the other keys have.
3 USB ports, Network port, single audio port for headphone and HDMI ports on the left side as well as the power plug. No USB C.
Pros: Great graphics card at this price point
Fast refresh monitor
Built like a tank
Nice texture to the exterior surfaces
Cons: Battery life is garbage
Only one external monitor port
Default configuration not good
Overall Review: The TUF FX505 from ASUS is a great entry into the gaming laptop market. This particular model (the FX505DV-NH74) is loaded down with a Ryzen R7-3750H processor, 16 GB DDR4, a 512 GB NVMe, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB GDDR6. Plenty of horsepower to respectably run the latest games all tied up in a 4.8 lb package. Though you probably won’t leave behind the 1.4 lb power brick so be sure to include that in your go bag.
The box contents were fairly meager (not even a sticker, ASUS?). You’ll find the laptop, power brick + cord, a small manual, warranty card, and small zip bag with four tiny screws which appear to be extras for the M.2 ports. Once you get everything out and plugged in you’ll notice there’s no power status indicator on the brick that it’s plugged in. Some folks may like that as it’s one less LED to put black tape over, others may rather have it and know the brick is plugged in.
Upon first power up you might want to run by the BIOS (F2) and make sure you have the latest (Version 305 as of this writing). The BIOS has an “EZ” mode which is a little silly as anyone with enough knowhow to enter the BIOS is going to need the advanced mode anyways, but I digress. Boot the rest of the way up and you’ll be greeted with all the Windows 10 mumbo jumbo (note if you leave your wifi off you can skip the Microsoft account registration by “attempting” to sign up with no connection). By the way if you’re cranky about boot speeds, this thing boots from completely off to the Windows login screen in about twelve seconds.
You’ll also notice immediately on boot up the keyboard defaults to a rotating rainbow of fading multicolor lights under its lightweight chiclet keys. Thank you ASUS for actually including the utility (Armoury Crate) which allows the user to customize these lights to their heart’s content. Speaking of pre-installed software, ASUS did a great job with only a single noticeable piece of bloatware, McAfee LiveSafe, though it will begin hounding you with a “recommended by ASUS” banner if you don’t either activate it or remove it. There’s also a My ASUS app which you may sign up for to register your device for customer support. The touchpad is nice and large and by default responds to the typically expected gestures such as two-finger scrolling/right-click, pinch zooming, etc. The touchpad is positioned well and my large hands have no issue accidentally activating it while typing. The key layout by the numpad is a bit crammed which forces the right side arrow keys down. It’s a little awkward if you’re a constant user of those arrow keys.
Rounding out the tough looking (ahem, TUF aka “The Ultimate Force”) exterior is the look and feel of a pretty sturdy computer. ASUS claims the FX505DV to be MIL-STD-810 Rev G certified, though it’s unclear from their website if they simply performed the tests themselves or they have an actual Certificate of Compliance (for those reading this looking for such things). If you’re only browsing the photos you might be fooled by the brushed aluminum look of the case. It is in fact all plastic. At first this bothered me a little but after some use, I realized it really is very durable, and the texture the “fake” brushed look gives is very pleasant to the touch. So much so that I like it better than if it was brushed aluminum in the first place. The only indicators you have to look at are four very small LEDs which indicate power state, charging state, drive activity, and airplane mode state. Even in a well lit room, you have to get really close or put a flashlight on it to be able to tell what those indicators were. That said, it’s nice that the same four LEDs are visible with the lid shut as well. There is a red LED on the power button itself, but appears to only help the user find the button which would otherwise disappear amongst the black void that is the top of the computer.
Once you’re ready to start plugging things in, you’ll notice all of the external ports (yes even power) are on the left side of the laptop. ASUS’ reasoning for this layout is to avoid interference with right-handed mousing (sorry lefties!). While you’re plugging everything in you might notice only one display output, an HDMI 2.0 jack. No mini DisplayPort or secondary HDMI, so if you want more than one external monitor you’ll have to go find another solution. The audio jack is a 3.5mm TRRS so it’s ready to go for your headset. No adapters to split the signals were included. Built-in side firing speakers are sure to annoy your neighbors on the plane nicely and do sound decent. The included built-in camera is nothing to write home about and probably good enough for your dog to recognize you when you video call him from your business trip.
Now that you’ve plugged everything in it’s time for some performance numbers! Straight out of the box with no tweaking, the numbers were terrible. I then realized that even though this *gaming* laptop carries the rather beef
Pros: -GeForce RTX 2060 for less than 1G
-Super Durable Elegant outer shell
-Upgradable to 32GB
-IPS panel 144Hz FHD
-Excellent and reliable software (sound, RGB, automates fan speed and more)
-M.2 NVMe for super fast boot-time and fast shuts down
-I/O ports on one side (my preference also)
-Fast and responsive Keyboard
-2.5' bay for HDD upgradeable internal storage **
-No USB-C but buying a USB 3.0 to USB C cable would fix any connectivity issues with USB C port devices.
Overall Review: Overall, it's an amazing machine for the value, it performs during gaming better than expected and 120 Hz+ would make a difference in gaming, not performance but experience, I used to game on a 60 Hz panel and changing to 120 Hz and now 144 Hz panel does make a difference, blur/ghosting is not as noticeable, and from experience, anyone can attest to that.
The heat could be, would be a concern for some during gameplay but it is normal for the system to get a little too warm, and obviously, the RTX mobile gaming GPU is a 90W TDP tricked down from a full-fledged RTX 2060 160W TDP. For sound, the internal speakers won't do, so I used a gaming headset, the software is perfect and the sound quality is great.
CPU is an 8 core 31W TDP which is more than fair for an 8 core mobile CPU for power consumption. Considering my laptop with an i3 7100U is a Dual-Core 15W TDP.
CMOS, the CPU, 12nm vs 7nm would not affect the game performance, the CPU would not be of such an impact of which it could be a night and day difference in terms of "gaming", I have friends who game on 1700X and 5700 XTs. So no worries that just because it's a 12nm CPU, performance would degrade, in my case, performance is boosted by the GPU and the RTX 2060 mobile is capable of running all games at Medium to high settings with super high refresh rates.
** Storage is upgradeable, yes, a 2.5" drive but I prefer an external drive, because of the versatility I prefer portable storage, and I would recommend an SSD with a USB 3.0 enclosure. I have an M.2 512GB drive in a USB 3.0 enclosure with 3 of the games I currently own and with my (gaming) account installed in the laptop I just brought my self-made portable storage with those games w/o having to re-download or had to remove the internal storage from my main desktop. It's all about versatility.
This is a great laptop for great price and performance is amazing, and for the last two weeks I haven't even used my console, I do prefer this new laptop now, 60 Hz cannot match the smoothness of a 144 Hz panel, even at 1080P. While the battery does not last as long during "gaming", it's also good for daily tasks and the runtime will increase as long as there's no gaming involved, I've been using this now at work for two weeks and the image quality of IPS for movies is just perfect, I couldn't be any happier with this laptop.
The two only things that this laptop lacks are easily fixed with a USB card reader and hub and a USB 3.0 to USB C cable (or vise versa).
UPDATE. After hours of playing COD MW with this laptop, I can see this laptop will be more than sufficient for future games, the RTX video card can handle it smoothly and the refresh rate with the settings to so Medium to High makes the game run smooth and no blurs. 1080P is the sweet spot for 120MHz RR.
With so many updates for games, currently, I had to swapped my 512GB portable HDD for a 3TB HDD, I mean 200GB just for COD/MW, a bit too much but it's necessary.
Definitely, the best gaming laptop for the money when compared to others and its hardware, RTX 2060 for $$$$, great price.
Pros: This laptop comes with some amazing components. Ryzen R7 3750, RTX 2060, and 16GB DDR4. Can't complain about that for a laptop. I really love the RGB keyboard. This makes playing a quick game at night easy and it looks awesome. The Windows10 has been modified by ASUS to load very quickly. The expandability is great with the ability to upgrade the memory to 32GB, add a second hard drive or SSD, and I would guess that the battery could fairly easily be replaced if needed. Lastly, the case has a great design and the touchpad works very well with what appears to be microswitches in the corners so double tapping isn't required. Red Dead 2 worked great on this machine.
Cons: I have a few cons but most could be easily fixed. The first and a major gripe for me is the lack of a manual in the box. There's the laptop, the power supply and cord, a warranty card, and a simple guide that shows where to find the screen, keyboard, USB connections, and power. That's it...
I needed to go on YouTube to figure out how to access the interior because I couldn't tell if I was going to break something while attempting. Once inside I realized that I had space for a second hard drive or SSD and that there was a second memory slot. These things should've been covered in a simple owners manual.
The second grip was with the RTX video card. I attempted to use the ray tracing that is supposed to make this card great and got single digit frames per second. Not sure if this is powerful enough to handle that kind of processing.
Overall Review: Overall I love this laptop even with a few gripes. It's more than powerful enough to handle every game I threw at it as long as I kept the ray tracing option turned off. It has great expandability and appears to be easily serviced/repaired.
I almost forgot. It comes with a great warranty too.
Pros: It ran well while it lasted
Cons: It stopped turning on a month after i bought it, and I have been pretty careful. I was just installing shadow of war and it stopped working while I was waiting. No longer turns on.
Overall Review: Broke after less than a month.
Pros: + fast system
+ great keyboard and screen
Cons: - overheats a lot
- a lot of performance issues while gaming
- it didnt achieve the expected fps in most games
Overall Review: if you were looking for 100+ fps in most triple a games dont buy this laptop.
