Asus G51J 3D Review


The first laptop to incorporate Nvidia's 3D Vision technology, Asus' G51J 3D, is a stereoscopic gaming powerhouse.

Asus G51J-3D review: Asus G51J-3D


We've been very impressed with Nvidia's 3D Vision technology , which renders most games in pretty impressive 3D, but it requires an investment in compatible hardware, including a 120Hz LCD monitor, approved desktop GPU with dual-link DVI connection,...

Built-in Nvidia 3D Vision technology; fast Intel Core i7 CPU; decent gaming performance.

Expensive; 3D gaming is still niche; small screen for a gaming rig.

The Asus G51J-3D is the first laptop to incorporate Nvidia's 3D vision technology. If you absolutely love the idea of 3D gaming, this proof-of-concept system will work well for a pricey showpiece.

With the ASUS G51J-1B 3D, ASUS and Nvidia delivered a convincing 3D experience. Too bad it's limited to just games.

3D game play done right. 3D glasses work and fit well. Fast Core i7 processor. Good graphics card. Back-lit keyboard. Comfortable palm rests. Dual hard drives. Exceptional sound system.

Screen resolution is low for a gaming laptop. 3D effects limited to games only. 3D effects will cost you.

ASUS G51J 3D Review


The ASUS G51J 3D is an exciting notebook for early adopters who want to take their gameplay to the next level. While we would've liked a higher-resolution screen--and higher frame rates--this rig is more than capable of playing the latest titles. At...

Stylish design, Fun 3D gaming, Very good overall performance, Gaming mouse and backpack included

Worse frame rates than G51J-A1 model when using 3D, Lack of 3D movie content, Mediocre Wi-Fi range

ASUS G51J Review


The G51J is the latest 15-inch gaming notebook from ASUS, sporting the new Intel Core i7 mobile processor and Windows 7 operating system. This notebook shares a lot of features with the previous G51VX, with only a hardware refresh to support the Core...

Improved keyboard tray design ; Speedy Intel Core i7 processor ; 200 price drop compared to previous model

Too much hype in the 1.6 to 2.8GHz overclocking feature

Multimedia performance was excellent as expected, with ample processing power to handle decoding 1080P videos at the same time with barely breaking a sweat. With the Core i7 handling 8 threads at the same time, there was always available overhead to...
