Asus N550JV-DB72T

 

Watching movies on a tablet is well and good, but to get real immersive entertainment, a 15.6-inch laptop with multiple speakers like the Asus N550JV-DB72T is the portable equivalent of a home theater system, wrapped in the body of a power user laptop.

Class-leading performance. Multimedia-oriented features. 1080p HD IPS screen. Subwoofer included. Multi-speaker sound. Fast wake from sleep. HDMI and mini-DisplayPort. Touch screen.

Heavy. No 5GHz Wi-Fi support. No Blu-ray. Short battery life. Narrow numeric keys.

The Asus N550JV-DB72T is one of the best desktop replacement laptops we've seen in PC Labs in a while. It's equally at home consuming or creating media, and it's a great choice for the demanding power user. Its 1080p HD screen, benchmark performance,...

Review Asus N550JV-CN201H Notebook

 

Multimedia all arounder. With the N550JV, Asus releases a new edi

matte, contrast-rich IPS screen (Full HD); Big storage capacity; attractive case; backlit keyboard; high-end sound output; mini DisplayPort

CPU throttling under full load; GPU throttling under full load on battery

Despite two case fans, the notebook is not too loud.

Asus N550JV Review

 

So did I make a good choice by getting the Asus N550JV? Probably. Should you get one? That depends. The Asus N550JV spoils you with a lot of high-end elements – from the beautiful 1080p display and the metal construction to the audio experience and the...

ASUS N550JV Laptop Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The ASUS N550JV packs a quad core i7, 8GB RAM, Geforce graphics and a Blu Ray drive for under £1,000, but is it good enough to be your desktop replacement?

Powerful day to day performance ; Plays games surprisingly well ; Blu-Ray Drive included ; Excellent Audio

Slightly iffy buttons on the touchpad ; Battery life could be stronger ; No solid state drive

ASUS N550JV Laptop

 

A desktop replacement that runs games well for under a grand?

Powerful day to day performance ; Plays games surprisingly well ; Blu-Ray Drive included ; Excellent Audio

Slightly iffy buttons on the touchpad ; Battery life could be stronger ; No solid state drive

Viewing angles are good - there’s very little distortion when you deviate from a head on angle as is the case with some screens, and in fact you can still see text clearly from angles long after it would be impractical to work with. The brightness is...

Asus N550JV laptop review

 

Asus laptops have come a long way since the Eee PC series, which effectively pioneered the netbook category in 2007. Emboldened by that success, Asus subsequently pitched into the mainstream Microsoft mêlée where it is now just another maker of...

The Asus N550JV is a high-performance midrange laptop, blighted by an abominable touchscreen display and tortoise hard disk. If you care about sound quality, the B&O-branded sound system is not a reason to seek out this laptop. But the N550JV plays...

Asus N550JV-DB72T

 

Watching movies on a tablet is well and good, but to get real immersive entertainment, a 15.6-inch laptop with multiple speakers like the Asus N550JV-DB72T is the portable equivalent of a home theater system, plus it also qualifies as a power user system.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Simple, reliable, with enough punch for my needs.

 

- Excellent mobile CPU - the i7-4700HQ is better than many of the desktop-class processors OEM's are shipping these days. Great for productivity. - GT 750M is an acceptable discrete graphics option. It's not a great card but it allows you to get the...

- Had to replace the terribad Wi-Fi internal with an Intel one. Really not a big deal. - Battery life is terrible under windows. Slightly better under MATE Linux but don't expect this thing to last you all day.

Powerful machine, clumsy functionality

 

Even though I am generally satisfied with its performance, I would not choose this product again, because I am not confident about its long-term viability. Compared to my previous ASUS laptop (bought in 2010) it feels fragile and has annoying or...

Good graphics and processing power. Runs high-performance programs like Photoshop easily. Gaming seems good at medium-high graphics settings. Hasn't overheated in about 15 months of use (as of January 2016). Thin and smooth enough for easy carrying....

Touchpad is gimmicky. Putting pressure on the space next to the touchpad seems to trigger the left click. The cursor jumps around if you're not careful with the touchpad. There is no easy way to turn off the touchscreen. Keyboard has minor defects....

Worst laptop ive owned

 

I was so excited with this laptop, I bought a 500 gb ssd to put into it, then it slowly fell apart worse than any electronics device ive ever owned. I mean seriously, how does quality control slip through sooooooo bad. I had an ASUS rogue (one of those...

Fast, sleek, and beautiful design.

Worst quality control for a laptop ever. I am switching to mac after this laptop it was so bad. First thing, a few months of ownership, I find out the auxilary port isnt even positioned correctly and would require a new solder. Few more months later,...
