Asus GL552VW Xotic PC Edition Notebook Review

 

Mainstream update. The affordable ROG GL series gets Skylake, DDR4, USB Type-C, and other small changes to bring it up to speed. We check out the updated model and its performance gains with an overclocked GPU from Xotic PC.

high quality matte IPS display; accurate grayscale and colors, factory overclocked GPU; excellent gaming performance, good Turbo Boost performance under stress, 2x storage bays (M.2 + 2.5-inch SATA III), accessible storage bays and RAM slots, bright...

most internal components not easily accessible, high power consumption; short battery life, no native Thunderbolt 3 support, moderate backlight bleeding, case is a fingerprint magnet, system fan is never idle, no NVMe support, thick and heavy, weak...

Our analyses and conclusions are based on the conditions of the notebook out-of-the-box. Since Xotic PC units come overclocked and ready to go, our measurements related to temperatures, fan noise, performance, and battery life may be different from a...

Asus ROG GL552VW review – Skylake multimedia 15-incher

 

The Asus GL552VW performs well, runs cool and quiet in pretty much every situation, and the IPS screen is a pleasure to look at. On the other hand, the build-quality is only average, and the keyboard and trackpad could use a breath of fresh air. Asus...

great display; solid performance; easy to upgrade; runs cool and quiet; the battery is not encased; fair price

chunky and heavy body; very weak screen frame on the plastic covered version - get the metallic unit instead; mushy keyboard and not the best trackpad; rather small battery

As we draw the line on the Asus ROG GL552VW, I can’t really recommend the unit tested here, with the plastic lid cover. And that might sound harsh, but shows how one bad design decision can ruin an otherwise good laptop.

Asus ROG GL552VW

 

Bearing the high-end Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand, the latest laptop from Asus promises to play "top games" at 1080p without a hitch – but, unusually, costs less than £1,000.

Solid 1080p gaming pace ; Fast, versatile Core i7 processor ; Smart design throughout ; High-quality keyboard

Disappointing and inconsistent screen ; Underwhelming speakers ; Spongy trackpad

Asus RoG GL552VW review

 

What sits between cheap gaming laptops and ultra-expensive beasts you desire but can't really afford? That's what we're finding out today: it's the Asus RoG GL552VW review.

The Asus RoG GL552 is a more affordable, lower-spec take on the RoG G752, which is one of the best gaming laptops money can buy right now. Any resemblance is mostly visual, though.Superficial parts of the build are worse, the screen is nowhere near as...

Asus Republic of Gamers GL552VW (ROG) review - mid-range gaming

 

The ROG GL552VW is a good value mid-range gaming laptop let down by a mediocre screen

The GL552VW is still great value overall, but if you do have the extra budget, you should probably spend a little more on the admittedly larger MSI GE72 6QF Apache Pro , which can be bought for about £200 more. As a gaming system, it’s better...

*Impressive design ; *Affordable price ; *Powerful specifications

When it comes to factors like cooling system and looks/design, the laptop leaves no stone unturned to impress users. Performance-wise there is a little difference on the surface as compared to competitors. The display is decent, Windows 10 brings more...

Asus ROG GL552VW

 

Brilliant Budget gamer

Good Performance ; Looks Good ; Keeps temperatures under control

Bulky

The Asus ROG GL552VW is quite simply one of the best gaming laptops out there, under a budget of Rs. 1 lakh. We would have preferred better battery life, but one can make it work.

Entry level pricing for a ROG laptop.

Screen has a tight viewing angle.

Asus delivers a cheap ROG laptop that provides decent value for money.

Review: Asus GL552

 

Gaming is all about the GPU.

This is an overall solid contender let down by the choice of GPU.
