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, wrapped in the body of a power user laptop.

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 is one of the best desktop replacement laptops we've seen in PC Labs in a while. It's equally at home consuming or creating media, and it's a great choice for the demanding power user. Its 1080p HD screen, benchmark performance,...

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-DB72T Review and Ratings

 

The Asus N550JV-DB72T strikes an impressive balance, delivering an entertainment laptop with attractive design, good performance, and a gorgeous display—all at a reasonable price. We just wish its battery lasted longer.

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

The one part of the Asus' performance that disappointed us was its battery life—about four hours in our admittedly tough video-playback test. This is much better than the paltry two and a third hours of the Lenovo Y510p, but well shy of the Acer's and...

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...

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.

Consumer review by: Audrey G. (newegg.com)

Simple, reliable, with enough punch for my needs.

 

- Excellent mobile CPU - the i7-4700HQ is better than many of the desktop-class processors OEM's are shipping these days. Great for productivity. - GT 750M is an acceptable discrete graphics option. It's not a great card but it allows you to get the...

- Had to replace the terribad Wi-Fi internal with an Intel one. Really not a big deal. - Battery life is terrible under windows. Slightly better under MATE Linux but don't expect this thing to last you all day.
