Frustrating start


I will keep trying to fix this issue, I'd hate to have to return this computer, I really loved the idea of spending hours playing all my games on it. It really sucks that the only thing not working is the main reason why I bought this.

All the specifications for this machine are greatly suited for any videogame aficionado ; Great screen, plenty of storage space, nice sound ; This product is listed as refurbished, but the cosmetics were in great shape, it felt like the machine was...

The main reason why I chose this computer is because of the GPU, however I hate to say that I have been really disappointed since day one, as soon as I tried playing games on this, problems started to appear regarding the GPU. Everytime I try to play...

Asus G75 G75VW Notebook


Laptop was much more than I thought I would receive for less than $1000. I have built computers for almost 30 years, but mostly desktops and this is the best deal for the money and quality. Just remember to do your updates like on any computer. And...

Excellent Gaming Laptop!! No problems at all! Had to get used to Windows 8 but you can put windows 7 on this laptop as well too. Excellent bang for the buck

Weight but not really a big deal

Not worth it


I've purchased ASUS refeb's. before and never had an issue. This time ordered 2 ASUS refeb's. an both were DOA out of the box. Not such a good deal when you factor in additional shipping. Battery Dead and will not charge out of the box. Running the...

None, DOA out of the box

Add additional shipping to the "Sale" price and watch the saving disappear

When contacting customer service, the only options I was given was to get a refund, or hope they get another refurbished one sent to me (they were out of stock at the time). I would have accepted a slight upgrade, a comparable laptop, or the correct...

It booted up fine and was smooth when setting up windows

I was sent a dead power brick right off the bat ; Also, the HDD that came with my refurbished laptop was a 217GB drive, not a 1TB drive as advertised

Awesome Machine


I have had this for a month and its really nothing less than I expected from asus, I have many of their products. PLays starcraft 2, Civ 5, company of heroes and many other games very well. When I use afterburner to really push it i see big frame rate...

Machine works ; Has a very overclockable GPU. LED backlight keyboard I thought would not be amazing, but it is. PLenty of room for expanding storage and RAM.Screen is beautiful. Very aesthetically pleasing material and design. great cooling. Last but...

Its heavy. Battery life. I also need this for class so those are both real world cons. Stock drive is slighly slow, replaced with a samsung evo. even without this it would have been fine. I also just wanted to see how it affected the battery life as...

Very Good Quality


Almost new to be used, good video performance no scratches or dents, doesn't get hot would buy again 5/5

Heavy and Big, 2-3 hours battery life, not too portable

Great just a little glitchy


This laptop is running very fast, and maintaining a cool temp. The screen is crystal clear and looks amazing when playing games like skyrim and world of warcraft! dont let refurbished sound scary to you. the 90 day warranty is more then enough time for...

this laptop also has a few glitches that i will be calling asus to ask about. it runs great but sometimes the swipe scrolling doesn't work that good as well as when i am gaming (wirelessly) stupid college rules... I tend to lose connection and it will...

Best bang for the buck


This is refurbished but I couldn't tell, mine arrived looking and working just like brand new! I am a gamer and so far this has run games like Mechwarrior online and BF3 flawlessly. Asus makes a dam good product and this laptop is no exception. Doesn't...

None really

Better than I expected


I'm loving this laptop so far. Powers on and off very quickly once I replaced the primary with an SSD. Effective battery life with SSD is 5 hours for normal processing, and 2 hours with intense gaming. This is a heavy laptop, don't kid yourself....

Solid performer ; High benchmarks ; Great gaming ; Fast processing ; Highly expandable

CPU & GPU not easily upgradeable ; 2 SODIMM slots under keyboard, requiring breach of warranty to access (not done so yet) ; Refurbished, not 100% reconditioned. Slightly broken keys, and can see where the laptop was damaged before on the body right...
