Mandatory 8.0 to 8.1 Upgrade Wipes Drive

 

The last few purchases of any great value from NewEgg have been mostly ASUS products....plagued with problems and the WORST Customer Experience I've had from an online store in more than 10 years from both companies.. :( I JUST ordered Win 7 for this...

It worked pretty good when Win 8 was on there....but, Win 7 would have been better and was the original OS when it first shipped ; Lots of features and versatility...as long as you were using a Win OS because all the bundled software for tweaking is...

I have a lot of time and money invested in this gift to my son and am really dissatisfied with ASUS after the ASUS laptop I bought from NewEgg kept wanting to upgrade from Win 8 to 8.1. The 'upgrade' wiped the HD and I lost a LOT of DATA. I called ASUS...

PC is OK, not impressed with refurb

 

I like the size, screen is good quality, speed is great

DVD drive didn't work, wouldn't even recognize disks (of any kind). Didn't realize it until my warranty was up, now I'm stuck with it

Wanted so much to love it

 

I know that this model has been discontinued, but I wanted to share what it's like after living with it for nearly a year, which many reviewers don't do. Warranty is absolute garbage. Send your $1000+ laptop in for a bad memory module? Asus has a...

i7 3rd gen quad core cpu (best available at the time I purchased) ; gorgeous HD ips screen ; good sound for a laptop (when subwoofer attached) ; USB 3.0 for fast external hard drive transfers ; non-Intel based wifi chip

Not entirely compatible with older versions of USB, some items that do function just fine on USB 2.0 only ports ; Not the best sub components used inside ; Memory module failed within 10 months of purchase and I will have to buy some high quality...

False information from Asus?

 

Nothing angers me more than purchasing something based on pre-sales information then finding out that I was given incorrect information after the purchase. I hope someone from Asus will read this and provide the correct information regarding the BIOS...

Not sure yet, was planning to buy but I am getting conflicting information about the BIOS in this model

After reading the previous review comment from Asus support that said the BIOS could not be accessed without Windows 8 I decided to call Asus to confirm this. The support rep I spoke with assured me that the BIOS on this model could be accessed on boot...

Another Awesome ASUS

 

The description says "black aluminum" which is true for the top of the lid/back of the screen. The keyboard area is silver aluminum and the bottom of the laptop is hard black plastic. The plastic bottom is probably better than a 100% aluminum case as...

This is a beautiful machine, yet another wonderful example of the high quality I have come to expect from ASUS. Super fast, durable, runs anything you are likely to need it to run. Very quiet system, I've had it for exactly 1 month & 1 day and the...

The only flaw I have observed in the system itself is that the black aluminum lid seems to hold onto & show oil marks from your hands. Nothing that isn't easily cleaned off with an alcohol wipe or similar product but for someone as OCD as myself it can...

Be very careful of specifications

 

The only way to verify certain specifications (such as screen resolution, in my case) is to open the box and turn on the notebook. This can make getting a full refund from the place of purchase more difficult.

From other reviews, it seems like a good notebook, if you get one with the specifications ASUS claims

I've had an N56VJ notebook for over a month now, sitting unused ; That's because the only way to verify specifications is to contact ASUS sales (the website lists *possible* specifications, there are many sub-models). I needed the screen resolution to...

I am so happy I purchased this laptop!

 

I am very happy with my purchase. Especially now that I have Windows 7 as my OS now, rather than W8. Make sure you turn on all of your cores! Once you do that, you REALLY see how fast your processor is. If by some chance you don't know how to do that,...

Totally worth it

 

Great design, great performance, sweet screen, awesome sound and a really good price for the quality of hardware. Highly recommended.

I upgraded from an old Asus F50VT-x6 (Core 2 Duo 2.53GHz) and this machine is a screamer in comparison. I've got a Core i5 2500K desktop that has barely been used since I got this laptop ; The screen is fantastic, there's a little bit of issues with...

First and foremost the hard drive is a bit slow. But what more can you expect from a non-hybrid 5400rpm drive? Most of the time it's not very noticeable. The only times I do is when booting up, or moving large files ; My second gripe is the...
