Review Asus R510CA-CJ862H Notebook

 

Temptation in red. From the technological point of view, the R510CA offers nothing more than your standard features. Noteworthy are the touchscreen and large hard drive. But the computer's big attraction is its red attire.

Red case, 24-month warranty, Runs quietly, Display has no blue cast, Display offers good color values, The red case and that the notebook runs quietly

No Haswell processor, Expensive, Meager battery life, Low-contrast display, A better battery life and a better display

The gift that keeps on giving

 

Nice specs for CPU and APU vs. price

Keeps dying. I've two hard drives fail. ASUS repaired twice. Now, the display is dying. My guess is that when they replaced the hard drive the second time, they broke the very fragile small display connector thing. I have it back just a couple of weeks...

I normally go for cheap, but...

 

This is a really good laptop for the price. I was able to play anything I loaded on it with low to medium settings. It's lightweight, decent battery when not gaming, and overall pretty easy to use

Do not update the GPU driver. The default custom driver is the only way to get any decent performance out of this machine. The updated drivers from AMD cause a noticeable performance drop. The wireless card also leaves a lot to be desired, as it will...

Decent Laptop w/Flaws

Great Workstation, If It Worked

 

Laptops are not perfect, I realize this. However, there amount of problems I've had with it really makes me wish I hadn't bought it. I wish I could build my own like a desktop, my desktop runs great and hasn't had any problems like this at all, so it...

This laptop has a great APU and GPU combo, they run graphic-intense applications very well and I've been quite pleased with its performance despite my many unfortunate events with it

This laptop has had problem after problem, first off because this is an OEM product, good luck getting any help from Windows if your OS goes corrupt. At that point you have to send it to Asus to reinstall it, you cannot buy any recovery media for it. I...

Pretty good

 

Looking at it on paper it looks pretty good. With that said, AMD is good, but even with higher clock rates, you are better off with an I5. Windows 8 would have been a con, but am getting used to it and it really isn't ASUS's fault. Just haven't had the...

Video card keeps up with most games, but only if you don't mind sacrificing ultra high settings ; Low to moderate settings in BF4 work pretty good with a lower res ; Optical drive (seems less common these days) ; Relatively cool ; Decent battery life ;...

Didn't have 8.1 loaded from start, so some drivers and software had issues within an hour of running ; Hard drive (5200 rpm) slow performance; but you know that when you buy it ; Internal components (battery, ram, hd, etc) can only be accessed if you...

Terrible Experience

 

I actually enjoy this computer, but not being able to use the wireless functionality is a real damper on the product.

Has decent CPU and is a fair pc for the price, works well with most games and school work

Windows 8 ruined the laptop, I'm not sure if it's a driver error, or if windows 8 is just bad- but I've been having issues for weeks now ; After managing to get through the windows 8 updating issue after two days or attempts and solutions, I've...

More than a few issues

 

All around this looks like a good laptop, but I found ASUS support to be unhelpful, especially live chat support. If ASUS did a better job of keeping up to date graphics drivers, I'd be a lot happier. Perhaps they will release updated drivers once...

I bought this laptop because it was on sale and had a dedicated graphics card for casual gaming. I needed a new laptop for grad school and this seem to fit the bill. The laptop runs pretty quickly, even on battery power

I've had several issues with this laptop when it comes to gaming. I bought this laptop because a couple of other reviews stated that it could run WoW at 60fps on moderate settings. Unfortunately, this was not my experience. I was constantly stuck at...
