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

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


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 review


Multimedia has always been the main focus for the N-Series, so Asus opts for a 15.6-inch IPS screen panel with 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution, along with a built-in Blu-ray drive for watching high-definition films.

The slow hard drive is a cost-cutting weakness in a laptop costing almost £1000, and leaves it looking expensive in a crowded market. Nonetheless, the N550JV is an attractive multimedia laptop with impressive audio and video capabilities that could...

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

It's a very buggy PC


Handles some video games reasonably well. Definitely not going to allow you to run anything graphically demanding though ; When it is operative it is a very fast computer

This laptop cannot reboot, it cannot stay connected to wireless internet (even after all of the fixes for windows 8 randomly disconnecting), and it is inoperable for around 10-15 minutes upon manual rebooting ; I paid 800 bucks for a PC that has very...

I love this thing


After a fresh install of windows 8.1 and the addition of an ssd this thing boots and is ready to go in 7 secs with pw entry. Full drive scan with Bit Defender took all of 42 seconds. There are lots of useful reviews out there on YouTube to help you...

Not Customer Friendly


I will never purchase another laptop online again and never buy another Asus product. Neither company is willing to stand by the product they sell or the product they make.

I can't really tell what is great about this laptop because I received it damaged. Got in contact with New Egg and they directed me to Asus

After receiving the laptop back from Asus for the second time and not being fixed. I have asked Asus to replace the laptop or refund my money they said, "Can't do that". I contact New Egg and they just say contact Asus. So the laptop is on it way back...

Powerful and sleek


This is a good computer. It has plenty of horse power for gaming or compute functions. I bought this computer for my wife. I am picky about key strike feel (especially return), and liked the way the keys felt. She is much more picky about shape and...

1. Lots of power ; 2. Can turn on and off LED on keyboard ; 3. Graphics is good for anything you would want to through at it ; 4. 1080P ; 5. Not overly heavy or cumbersome ; 6. Separate number pad ; 7. Not a bunch of bloat ware on it

Easy to hit the track pad when tying on your lap
