Asus G53SX: Monster Performance in a Monster Machine

 

Asus's G53SX proves that you don't need to spend a ton of money to get a decent gaming machine--if you don't mind toting around an 8-pound monster. The G53SX is the perfect desktop-replacement-size all-purpose machine for gamers: it packs excellent...

Excellent performance ; Great specs for the price

Poor video playback ; Huge. Bulky. Heavy

The Asus G53SX is built for a very specific person: a gamer who doesn't care about basic multimedia functionality…or portability.

ASUS G53SX-A1 Review: Powerful Portable Gaming

 

This latest addition to the ASUS G-series gaming notebook lineup has fantastic performance, a great 15-inch 1080p screen, and a stealthy design. See why we recommend it.

Good 1080p screen ; Excellent performance ; Runs cool and quiet ; Two-year warranty standard

Average port selection ; So-so keyboard ; GTX 560M graphics not as fast as outgoing GTX 460M

ASUS continues to produce excellent all around gaming notebooks and the G53SX is no exception. It has fantastic performance, a great screen, sharp design, and even has decent battery life.

ASUS G53SX 15.6-inch Gaming Notebook Review

 

Enthusiast-level gaming notebooks don't need to cost a fortune; something ASUS proves with its $1,249 G53SX 15.4" offering. It features a 1080p display and an NVIDIA GTX 560M that's able to power today's games to it. This, in addition to an Intel...

When I first received the G53SX, I didn't think too much into it before cracking open the box. But I sure didn't expect to fall in love with it either. I've tested a fair number of gaming notebooks in this price-range before, and none felt completely...

ASUS G53SW 3D Gaming Notebook Review

 

A stealthy beast.

Stealth design, Rear exhaust vents are quite and effective, Sandy Bridge CPU is powerful, Nvidia GPU runs all games smoothly, Bluray & 3D playback are amazing, Backlit keyboard is nice & bright, 120Hz LCD

LCD resolution only 1366x768, Bloatware pre-installed, Matt finish on cover attracts a lot of dust and fingerprints

On the outer edges we’ll find all the ports on the left and right side, including the power connector. The front bottom houses all the LED indicators. Moving inside, the glossy 15.6” display is surrounded by a thick bezel, thicker than I would like,...

Asus G53SX review

 

Asus's G53SX proves that you don't need to spend a ridiculous amount of money to get a decent gaming laptop - if you don't mind toting around a 4kg monster. The G53SX is the perfect desktop-replacement-size all-purpose machine for gamers: it packs...

The Asus G53SX will please a very specific group of people, and disappoint others. Gamers looking for power in an inexpensive package may overlook the bulkiness and the poor audio quality (which headphones can quickly remedy). But the G53SX's ponderous...

Pin in DC jack broke 3 days after warranty expired.

 

Obviously a design flaw given the number of complaints Pin should not taper. Also my ac adapter is now useless as it has a pin stuck in it I can't remove.

Awesome in every other way ; SSD as boot drive 500GB in secondary bay

Pin in DC jack sticks in factory ac adapter and breaks out of jack

Huge Disappointment

 

I have had nothing but excellent service from all the ASUS products I have purchased over more than a decade now. Laptops, motherboards, video cards, all good. 4 laptops ranging from ultra book to G series top end laptops have all functioned...

Very nice case design

Did not work out of the box, and had to be sent back to ASUS
