Asus Zenbook UX303UB (Core i7-6500U, GeForce 940M) Subnotebook Review

 

Compact all-rounder. The latest model from Asus' Zenbook UX 303 series is once again a thin and nice 13.3-inch notebook. It has a lot of performance, but is still quiet in operation. The battery runtimes are unfortunately shorter compared to previous...

bright, high-contrast and matte IPS display, usually runs quiet, good input devices, fast SSD, good battery runtimes, can be maintained

the processor cannot utilize its full performance, you can hear an electronic noise, PWM at brightness settings of 90 % and lower, low PWM frequency

The notebook is pretty fast and can handle games, but the system is usually still quiet. The handling benefits from the fast SSD and there is no lack of storage thanks to the 512 GB drive. A replacement of the SSD is no problem, either, since it is...

Asus Zenbook UX303UB-DH74T Notebook Review

 

High resolution at a cost. The UX303 series has been around since the days of Sandy Bridge, but this is the first Skylake QHD model to make it into our labs. Unfortunately, the upgrade comes with a couple of consequences.

no major use of PWM for QHD configuration, very high resolution panel, full CPU and GPU performance whilst running Unigine Heaven, easy end-user maintenance, dual video-out; included VGA and RJ-45 adapters

reduced brightness, color accuracy, and contrast compared to FHD SKU, response times could have been better, no M.2 storage options, GPU can be get quite warm, no USB Type-C port

The Zenbook series still holds some of the better Ultrabooks available assuming that novel features like 360-degree hinges or detachable keyboards are of no interest to the user. This QHD configuration, however, is both a step forward and a step...

Asus ZenBook UX303UB Review and Ratings

 

Asus tops its 13.3-inch ultrabook line with a high-res, high-powered slimline that's a strong value at $1,299.

Sunny 3,200x1,800 IPS touch screen ; Ethernet and VGA dongles included

Half a pound overweight ; No USB-C or Thunderbolt port ; Not as fast as we'd expect a "Skylake" Core i7 to be

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

ASUS ZenBook UX303UB review: A battle of form and function - Tech2

 

ASUS' Zenbooks are supposed to set a high bar as far as standards for design and performance are concerned. Does the UX303UB deliver on those fronts though?

The ASUS ZenBook UX303UB is not a very remarkable laptop in most respects. It looks nice, has a lovely screen, adequate specs and performance to match. It’s not quite as cutting edge as one would expect, but it’s definitely not bad.

Asus ZenBook UX303U review

 

With better quality screens than ever before and the new Intel processors, the latest ultraportable Windows laptops are seriously tempting. Here's our Asus ZenBook UX303U review

At around £900 the ZenBook UX303U approaches the build finesse but lacks the unbeaten battery of the similarly priced MacBook Air, although it can claim faster processor performance and a superior full-HD matt display. This latest ZenBook is a...

Asus ZenBook UX303UB Review

 

Thin and light Lots of connectivity options Good overall performance Non-reflective screen

No SSD Too much bloatware Mediocre battery life

Asus gives us two options here: the UX305 series is portable at the cost of all else, but it does a fantastic job of what it's meant to. On the other hand, the UX303 tries to give buyers both portability and power, but balanced out at the most...

Great product, easy setup and use

 

- Good performance - Light in weight - Well desgined

- Touch screen seems a bit shaky.

Consumer review by: Paul V. (newegg.com)

Awesome Ultrabook, few minor issues

 

I would absolutely recommend this item to anyone wanting a powerful, quiet, computer. The minor cons stated aren't bad, per se, but annoying enough, at this price point, to deduct an egg.

-Fast and Quiet -Looks gorgeous and small form factor is appealing -Touchscreen is terrific*** (see con below)

-***While the touchscreen itself is great, the screen wobbles alot, due to smaller/weaker hinges, this makes using the touchscreen a bit counter intuitive due to the significant movement -Asus has a habit of applying multiple stickers with ridiculous...
