Works Great - Looks Great - Professional Grade - Would Recommend 12/10/2019 4:31:43 PM

Pros: Fast boot-up
Quiet
Solid state drive is fantastic. No annoying spin-up sounds.
Bevel of the keyboard is outstanding as is keyboard back-lighting.
Speakers deliver really nice sound for a laptop.
Very responsive keyboard for a laptop - I'm a quick touch typist and I like the "action" of the keyboard very much as well as the distance between keys.
Very crisp screen that cuts down on eye fatigue compared to my earlier [comparable ASUS] laptop
Attractive metal body
Light weight
Overall size of the unit is great. Small enough to work directly on your lap or a lap desk in a chair but the screen is so easy-to-view that it seems bigger than it actually is.
Screen view-ability angle is great.
Stays cool - doesn't heat up much at all with prolonged use.
I use this as my primary professional computer, replacing a desktop and an older laptop.
Comfortable to use with a lap desk or on a table surface.

Cons: Although the keyboard is nicely back lit, the characters are orange on silver keys which are not as easy to see as my previous ASUS which has back lit white characters on black keys.
Top right power button can be tricky. It's REALLY easy to hit the Power button when going for the Delete or Backspace keys. Luckily, the unit resumes very quickly at the same point so it's mildly annoying instead of a deal breaker.
I had trouble getting the fingerprint sensor to respond and had to do it multiple times then update the drivers.
Battery life is not as great as one would like. Battery drains fairly quickly with normal "office use" and the unit cannot go an entire work day without it being plugged in.
Must turn it off each time [not just close the lid] or it seems to drain completely overnight or after a few hours even after fooling with power settings.
But these things are minor compared with its pluses.

Overall Review: I would recommend this laptop for its speed, looks, functionality, keyboard responsiveness and weight.
I can't comment on the touch pad as I use an external turbo mouse 98% of the time.
This model is a bit pricey compared to others of its caliber but I think well worth the money, although time will tell how rugged it proves to be for a road warrior.
Our company purchased two of these at the same time and so far we have not been disappointed after using them in the office and on the road for a solid week and a half.

Very happy 11/30/2019 9:06:29 AM

Pros: - processor and RAM specs provide a good bang for the buck, enough power in this that I can run small jobs on it and test parameters before going to a larger cluster.
- I think the price point and the processing power compared to other computer makes this a fantastic option for those that want a laptop with a little punch without having to pay the high price for a 'gaming' laptop.

- lightweight and not painful to carry around
- good looking sturdy aluminum body, no cheap plastic
- fantastic speakers, very loud
- very nice screen with very crisp images
- I will list the keyboard as a plus since it has a decent amount of feedback compared to a lot of other thin laptops I tested before getting this one.
- the bevel changes that laptop angle, not a game-changer or something I would pay extra for but I do like it and I hope it helps cool it.

Cons: - no devoted graphics card, if you're an intense gamer you might have qualms with this but it doesn't bother me.
- The battery life is just OK, I partly attribute this windows 10 which I think is greedy with the resources. If you don't shut it off (and just close it) it will likely be almost dead next time you open it. BUT with the SSD it does boot up incredibly fast.

Overall Review: I have read a lot of reviews saying they're had bad experiences with the touchpad but I don't share that experience. I have had my UX431FA for half a year now and love it! I think it was a steal at the price I got it, and I would absolutely recommend it.

I wish I could speak to the longevity of the product, that would be my one concern, but only time will tell that. I bought this partly due to the fact that ASUS has a reputation for developing good pieces of hardware that provide some power and durability.

Great Bang for the bucks 9/9/2019 2:32:18 PM

Pros: * The weight - Your thighs will thank you for it. Doesn't feel like its there.
* The screen - Absolutely gorgeous . Amazing viewing angles.
* Speakers - Was thinking ..may be I will buy a Bluetooth speaker like JBL Flip 4 but boy does this eliminate the need for any additional speakers. Loud, Crisp, Clear. Especially the lift it gets by the lid design adds to even more fuller sound (two speakers are positioned down as well)
* Touchpad works great in unison with Windows Precision Drivers (reminds me of my old thinkpad from my earlier workplace)
* The screen bezel. Brilliant engineering by Asus there.

Cons: * The graphics - Intel UHD 620 sucks. I mean fine for dual FHD 60 Hz monitors but dual 4k won't make the cut.
* The body is a fingerprint magnate.

Overall Review: Absolutely recommended. Especially for the performance-with-looks metrics.
Build quality is very high.

Slim, powerful, awesome! 7/4/2019 7:25:19 PM

Pros: - Extremely thin and light form factor, very attractive design.
- Super-sharp full HD screen with excellent color, brightness, and contrast. The display is advertised at 100% SRGB, and I can tell you, it looks very nice (coming from someone who does game design, animation, and video editing for a living).
- The laptop turns on and shuts down very fast, usually within 3-5 seconds. This may seem like a silly thing to point out, but I appreciate not losing any time during powering up and down.
- The keyboard is responsive and comfortable to use. I also like the multiple levels of key backlighting.
- A few initial reviewers complained about the track pad. I've had no such issues, and find that it is nice to use. I also really like the fingerprint reader, which is embedded into the upper right corner of the trackpad. It is responsive and logs me into the machine quickly.
- The harman kardon speakers sound pretty darn good! I listened some some music and played a few PC games over them, and they had nice stereo separation and a clear sound. Not bad at all for such a small, compact laptop.
- I appreciate the inclusion of a full size HDMI connector! This makes connecting to external monitors, projectors, and other displays much easier (and cheaper) that having to use a USB-C to HDMI adapter, which many newer, smaller laptops require.
- Inclusion of a multi in/out 1/8" connector is much appreciated. I really like how there is only one connection, and when you plug in your device (headphones, headset, mic, etc), a windows pops up asking you what you plugged in. Pretty sweet! Audio over headphones sounds great.
- Bluetooth connection to my Bose Quiet Comfort 35 headphones was fast and easy. Audio sounded great.
- Web browsing, MS Office, Google docs, and other general tasks are very fast.
- Adobe software ran quite well for design and video editing tasks.
- The laptop runs very quiet and does not seem to get hot, even while gaming.
- I downloaded Steam and ran several games, and was impressed with the overall performance of the integrated Intel GPU. "Hollow Knight," "Inside," and "Broforce" all ran at maxed out settings, 1080p resolution without a hitch. I tested out "Bioshock" with full graphics settings on, and had to drop the resolution down a few notches to get a sooth frame rate.
- The included power supply and mouse are small and light, which make packing them into a small laptop carrying case convenient.
- I appreciated the inclusion of a fabric carrying case - nice touch!

Cons: - Wish there was room for one more USB 3.0 port, as well as a Ethernet adapter, but I understand these smaller machines do not have room for them typically.
- The power adapter connection on the left side seems a bit wiggly. Don't think this is a huge deal, but the one on my small Lenovo Thinkpad has a much more tightly fitting connection and doesn't move around as much.

Beautiful looking durable light-weight power beast :) 7/2/2019 11:17:00 AM

Pros: -Processor Intel Whiskey Lake quad core i7-8565U 1.80 GHz (up to 4.60GHz Turbo frequency) with integrated Intel UHD Graphics 620
-mine came with 8GB RAM and 512GB NVMe SSD, great start options!
-stunning quality Nanoedge display
-great quality audio sound from built-in Harman Kardon speakers!
-Military-grade case
-gigabit fast wireless 802.11ac over 5GHz band
-backlit keyboard
-HD webcam and microphone
-weighs only 3.2 lbs!
-fingerprint reader is nicely integrated with touchpad, worked OK for me
-battery life up to 10 hours
-includes carrying sleeve

Cons: -It should come with Windows 10 Professional edition
-it could have more USB 3.1 ports ... who needs USB 2.0 nowadays?
-included optical mouse is wired, I think most people would have preferred a bluetooth mouse
-8GB RAM might be too little for more demanding business apps, I will upgrade mine to 16GB

Overall Review: This laptop is marketed as Usage for "Business", not really "business" until it is sold with at least Professional Windows edition, Home edition is NOT "business"

Review: Day 1, will update once I've lived with it for a while. 6/12/2019 7:49:50 PM

Pros: -This thing is freakin sturdy! great construction
-Amazing speakers for a small laptop. It has at least 4 and they sounded great even in my lap instead of on a table.
-Very little bloatware - the stuff it did have was so out of date it didn't even annoy me besides having to uninstall the remaining junk. (Looking at you ASUS GIFT app)
-Trackpad is great (AFTER messing with it for a bit, the first few touches were as some of the other reviews described, then after using it something under it clicked into place and it functions like a normal high-end trackpad, reminiscent of my wife's MacBook even.
-The fingerprint sensor is fast! (I did have to install the latest drivers for it and then enable and disable the fingerprint function and restart to get it working, IDK how long this machine sat on the shelf somewhere so drivers and updates are to be expected)
-It is FAST, great cpu. Normal web browsing, messaging, and media are executed really well. This is a great notebook for a student who understands how to keep their windows up to date.

Cons: -Personally, I don't mind messing with updates, software, and drivers. This Zenbook needed A LOT of updates that I needed to go looking for, and I know that most people don't like dealing with stuff like that.
-Power button is next to the delete and backspace keys, get ready for some accidental shutdowns haha.

Overall Review: I would recommend this to anyone who is relatively tech-savvy. I know for a fact that my parents would have had issues getting this thing running right out of the box. I spent around 4 hours with this thing doing multiple updates, deleting unneeded software, updating drivers, and then doing even more updates because this zenbook was quite a few behind current versions.

Beautiful, sturdy, well priced, BAD TOUCHPAD, It could have been a great laptop!!! 5/1/2019 1:20:20 PM

Pros: Gorgeous machine!!!
All-aluminum body is awesome!!!
Screen, speakers, battery, CPU, GPU, overall performance is really good.

Cons: TOUCHPAD IS BAD!!! It is loose, feels uncomfortable and hollow, hence, it is very noisy even with the slightest touch!!!!!!

Overall Review: I'm thinking about returning it, though after reading other reviews complaining about the same issue I'm afraid the replacement could be in even worst conditions!!! I read someone just got it open and placed a piece of folded paper underneath the touchpad springs, and it worked, I prefer not to do that, I'll try to get used to it...
WHY, ASUS, WHYYY???!!! Being an issue that can be fixed with a piece of folded paper!!!!!

Touchpad is way too noisy 3/26/2019 3:21:40 PM

Pros: N/A

Cons: If your finger even lightly touches the touchpad, there is a very audible noise. I will be returning. This is unacceptable.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Jeffrey,

I certainly understand your concern regarding the issue with the touchpad. It is a smart device, please allow some time to get use to the multi-touch function of the pad. In order to improve the touchpad responsiveness and stability, please install all recommended WINDOWS Update. If you are accessing web applications, please verify if the laptop has access to an established router and internet service is working properly since this will affect the responsiveness of the touchpad. Also, try updating the ASUS Smart Gesture utility and try to configure the touchpad within the application. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and I will be more than glad to help.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel
