Asus Zenbook UX305UA-FC040T Subnotebook Review

 

Long lasting. A Skylake processor implies higher performance in the Zenbook UX305 without negative impact on the battery runtimes. The fast SSD, Full HD display and good keyboard remain unchanged.

bright, contrast-rich, matte IPS screen ; Full HD resolution ; stable, high-end case ; very good input devices ; very good battery life ; works usually quietly ; does hardly get warmer ; fast SSD ; maintainable

no keyboard light ; PWM flickering

The Asus Zenbook UX305UA delivers high CPU performance and at least limited gaming capabilities. Nevertheless, the computer usually works quietly and hardly gets warm. A fast SSD makes for a responsive system. The computer does not lack storage space....

Asus Zenbook UX305UA review

 

Asus' near-perfect Zenbook UX305UA is easily the best ultrabook value yet.

Asus’ Zenbook UX305UA is an initially confusing ultrabook. It looks similar to the UX305CA at a glance, and it appears to share some components, such as the keyboard, touchpad, and hard drive. Even the price has barely changed, rising to $750 – a mere...

Asus Zenbook UX305UA laptop review (Core i5 Skylake model)

 

The Asus Zenbook UX305 line of laptops, are thin, light, and surprisingly cheap when you look at their spec sheets.

The Asus Zenbook UX305UA offers a lot of bang for the buck. It offers about twice the performance of a model with a Core M Broadwell processor, but sells for just $50 more.

Asus Zenbook UX305UA review – a solid Skylake ultraportable for limited budgets

 

The Zenbook UX305UA is a sleek 13-inch ultraportable with an excellent IPS matte display, Skylake hardware, a large battery and an affordable price tag. All these taken together make it an excellent buy for those of you looking for a premium device,...

wells built and good looking; great matte display; decent keyboard and trackpad; solid performer; runs cool; long battery life; great price

lacks a backlit keyboard; a bit noisier than it should be; limited range Wi-Fi; only gets a micro-HDMI port for video output

At the end of the day, the Zenbook UX305UA is a solid 13-incher with one serious ace down its sleeve: its affordable price. It’s also a very nice looking and well built machine, gets an excellent screen, performs just as it’s expected from a...

UNEXPECTED

 

SUPER FAST & LOVELY PERFORMANCE..

Consumer review by: Anuj (amazon.in)

Overpriced in India, major defects, pathetic service.

 

Got it imported from a friend for less than 50K where as in flipkart it is selling for 71K, that's 21K more. About the product, it is light weight, thin, matte screen. Does not run for 10 hours though, at best I got 7 hours backup. The real issue is...
