Review Asus N550JV-CN201H Notebook

 

Multimedia all arounder. With the N550JV, Asus releases a new edi

matte, contrast-rich IPS screen (Full HD); Big storage capacity; attractive case; backlit keyboard; high-end sound output; mini DisplayPort

CPU throttling under full load; GPU throttling under full load on battery

Despite two case fans, the notebook is not too loud.

Asus N550JV-DB72T

 

Watching movies on a tablet is well and good, but to get real immersive entertainment, a 15.6-inch laptop with multiple speakers like the Asus N550JV-DB72T is the portable equivalent of a home theater system, plus it also qualifies as a power user system.

Class-leading performance. Multimedia-oriented features. 1080p HD IPS screen. Subwoofer included. Multi-speaker sound. Fast wake from sleep. HDMI and mini-DisplayPort. Touch screen

Heavy. No 5GHz Wi-Fi support. No Blu-ray. Short battery life. Narrow numeric keys

The Asus N550JV-DB72T ($1,047.00) is a power user's desktop replacement laptop. It has a fourth-generation Intel Core processor, enthusiast level Nvidia GeForce graphics, and enough hard drive space for the video editor or video collector. The system's...

ASUS N550JV Review

 

An excellent entertainment laptop, the ASUS N550JV features a booming quad-speaker system, a beautiful touch screen and good gaming power.

Loud quad-array speakers; Very good graphics performance; Beautiful 1080p touch screen; Plenty of ports

Some touchpad issues; A bit heavier than competing notebooks

An excellent entertainment laptop, the ASUS N550JV features a booming quad-speaker system, a beautiful touch screen and good gaming power.

Asus N550JV Review

 

So did I make a good choice by getting the Asus N550JV? Probably. Should you get one? That depends. The Asus N550JV spoils you with a lot of high-end elements – from the beautiful 1080p display and the metal construction to the audio experience and the...

Well-balanced design for a 15-inch laptop, Brilliant-looking 1080p touch display, Finger-friendly keyboard includes full numeric keypad

Battery lasts just 4 hours and change, Aluminum chassis is susceptible to scratches, Audio can sound distorted despite booming quad-speaker array

After using the N550JV for multimedia-intensive tasks as well as everyday ones, in fact, we'd call it a 15.6-inch laptop that packs the punch of a 17-inch model, but is (despite its weight) almost as easy to carry with you as a 14-inch model. That's a...

Asus N550JV laptop review

 

Asus laptops have come a long way since the Eee PC series, which effectively pioneered the netbook category in 2007. Emboldened by that success, Asus subsequently pitched into the mainstream Microsoft mêlée where it is now just another maker of...

The Asus N550JV is a high-performance midrange laptop, blighted by an abominable touchscreen display and tortoise hard disk. If you care about sound quality, the B&O-branded sound system is not a reason to seek out this laptop. But the N550JV plays...

ASUS N550JV Laptop

 

A desktop replacement that runs games well for under a grand?

Powerful day to day performance ; Plays games surprisingly well ; Blu-Ray Drive included ; Excellent Audio

Slightly iffy buttons on the touchpad ; Battery life could be stronger ; No solid state drive

Viewing angles are good - there’s very little distortion when you deviate from a head on angle as is the case with some screens, and in fact you can still see text clearly from angles long after it would be impractical to work with. The brightness is...

Asus N550JV

 

When the Asus N56VM arrived in PC Pro's Labs just over a year ago, it's fair to say we were smitten. Sharp looks, good performance and a keen price delivered it straight to the A List. Twelve months on and Asus is hoping to repeat the trick with the...

Power, good looks and a sensible price make the Asus N550JV a fantastic all-round desktop replacement

Powerful machine, clumsy functionality

 

Even though I am generally satisfied with its performance, I would not choose this product again, because I am not confident about its long-term viability. Compared to my previous ASUS laptop (bought in 2010) it feels fragile and has annoying or...

Good graphics and processing power. Runs high-performance programs like Photoshop easily. Gaming seems good at medium-high graphics settings. Hasn't overheated in about 15 months of use (as of January 2016). Thin and smooth enough for easy carrying....

Touchpad is gimmicky. Putting pressure on the space next to the touchpad seems to trigger the left click. The cursor jumps around if you're not careful with the touchpad. There is no easy way to turn off the touchscreen. Keyboard has minor defects....
