Asus ROG Strix Hero Edition (GL503VM)

 

The Asus Strix Hero Edition is an all-around capable midrange laptop made for MOBA gamers, delivering 60fps HD gaming at 120Hz without busting your budget.

Smooth 60fps HD gaming performance. Sturdy build. 120Hz display. Solid, comfortable keyboard.

Short battery life. Divisive design.

Bottom Line: The Asus Strix Hero Edition is an all-around capable midrange laptop made for MOBA gamers, delivering 60fps HD gaming at 120Hz without busting your budget.

The ROG Strix Hero is more a dependable sidekick

 

This Hero's marketing may be what's "optimized" for MOBA, but it's still a solid all-around gaming laptop.

Solid performance for its specs, a snazzy but not flashy design and a really good keyboard for both gaming and not-gaming are the highlights of the Asus ROG Strix Hero Edition.

The battery life. Oy.

A likeable general-purpose gaming laptop that can handle work and play equally well, as long as you don't need to run off the battery for more than 2.5 hours.

Asus ROG Strix GL503 review

 

A gaming laptop whose strengths don't make up for its weaknesses

Stunning 1080p screen ; Great battery ; Lovely RGB keyboard

Storage is slow ; Fans are distracting ; A magnet for fingerprints

The Asus Rog Strix G503 fails to set itself apart from the crowd of entry-level gaming laptops in any meaningful way, from price to power, despite strong battery life and a beautiful screen.

Asus ROG Strix GL503VD Gaming Laptop Review

 

Outstanding build quality ; Attractive design ; Ample storage space ; Efficient cooling ; Adequate battery life ; Decent display contrasts

Poor synthetic and gaming performance ; Slow storage speeds ; Poor grayscale and color accuracy ; Incredibly expensive for what it has to offer

The Asus ROG Strix GL503VD is unmistakably a beautiful laptop with great features. Unfortunately, the performance isn't up to par with what Asus is charging for it, and you can easily find similar performance for much cheaper, or much better...

ASUS ROG Strix GL503 review - The Scar and Hero editions

 

With the new ROG Strix GL503, ASUS is switching things up a little with its mid-range line of gaming notebooks. The ROG GL503 Hero and Scar editions are really two of the same, well somewhat, notebooks targeted at MOBA and FPS gamers respectively.

Solid build quality;Good performance;Buttery smooth 120Hz/144Hz IPS panel;Ample ports and connectivity

Poor battery performance;Secondary hybrid drive is agonizingly slow;Display only at Full HD
