Asus Zenbook UX305CA-FB055T Subnotebook Review

 

Slim and classy. The Zenbook's special feature is its high-resolution QHD+ panel (3200x1800 pixels). It provides a razor-sharp image, but its contrast is weak. Everything is in line beyond that: Fast SSD, long battery life, decent keyboard. However,...

matte screen, runs noiselessly, low temperature development, decent keyboard, good battery life, Fast SSD

screen's middling contrast, no keyboard backlight

Asus' Zenbook UX305CA-FB055T is a lightweight and very slim 13.3-inch subnotebook. The installed Core m7 processor has enough computing power for routine application scenarios. Its low TDP allows passive cooling. Thus, the laptop usually runs...

Asus Zenbook UX305CA-EHM1 Subnotebook Review

 

Good choice, take 2. Asus' update of the Zenbook UX305 is not extensive by any means with a Skylake m3 CPU instead of a Broadwell SoC standing out as the notable difference. In the other areas, the UX305CA inherits both the strengths and weaknesses of...

sturdy chassis, good build quality for the price, very fast SSD, good overall performance, noiseless & low heat, bright, non-glare display, thin and very light

performance affected by throttling, battery life just average, no backlit keyboard, washed-out webcam, no USB Type-C port

All things considered, the UX305CA isn't that much different from the predecessor Zenbook UX305FA-FB003H. Of course, that's not necessarily a bad thing - after all: where else do you get a unibody aluminum chassis, Core M processor, 8 GB of RAM, a 256...

The Asus ZenBook UX305CA squeezes a beautiful 13.3-inch display, speedy SSD and Intel Core m processor into an attractive, lightweight body with a battery that will last all day long. To get this much portability and usability for $699, Asus made some...

Asus ZenBook UX305CA

 

The Asus ZenBook UX305CA is a well-made midrange ultraportable with an aluminum body, a full HD touch screen, good performance, and plenty of features at a very affordable price.

Nice price. Quality aluminum build. Sleek design. Solid performance on our benchmark tests.

No keyboard backlighting. Lacks Ethernet ports.

Conclusion The Asus ZenBook UX305CA is a slim, well-made system with a good display and solid performance. The aluminum body feels sturdy and of high quality, and the price is a very good value. The Apple MacBook Air 13-inch costs $300 more, and the...

Asus ZenBook UX305CA Review and Ratings

 

Like earlier ZenBook UX models, this impressively light, well-equipped Windows 10 ultrabook provides exceptional value at its $699 price.

Thin, light, attractive ; Comfortable keyboard and touch pad ; Strong battery life ; Fanless and quiet ; Good value for the money

Modest CPU, GPU performance ; Keyboard not backlit ; No touch screen

In keeping with the late models in the ZenBook line, the ZenBook UX305CA is an ultra-thin, well-built, and classy laptop with a decent screen, passable sound, and a workable keyboard and touch pad, all at a very attractive price. In addition, it’s...

Asus Zenbook UX305 review

 

A most affordable and excellent Ultrabook keeps its streak

Incredibly thin and light ; Vibrant, glare-free screen ; Excellent keyboard and trackpad

Weak sauce graphics ; Tinny speakers

Call it a MacBook Air knock off all you want, the Asus ZenBook UX305 remains one of the best and most affordable Ultrabooks on the shelf.

Asus ZenBook UX305CA review

 

If you're after an ultraportable laptop with all-day battery life and a high-resolution screen, it's hard to beat the new Zenbook. Here's our Asus ZenBook UX305CA review

The Asus ZenBook UX305CA is a sensible, perhaps predictable upgrade to the UX305 we looked at last year. It has newer CPU, and a much higher-resolution screen. However, it remains a seriously portable, expensive-feeling laptop that really isn’t that...

Asus ZenBook UX305CA

 

The Asus ZenBook UX305 was my second favourite laptop of 2015, only losing out to the slightly more powerful Dell XPS 13 (2015). Its combination of stylish, premium design, excellent screen quality and exceptional battery life made it quite the bargain...

The, now cheaper, Asus ZenBook UX305CA is a well built ultraportable but its battery life could be better

Review: Asus' ZenBook UX305CA makes some sacrifices, but still shines

 

Not the last word in speed or stamina, but a stylish laptop with a great screen.

For under $1,200 Asus has produced a remarkable machine.
