Asus ROG Strix Hero II

 

A midrange gaming laptop designed with MOBAs in mind, the Asus ROG Strix Hero II entices with its subdued appearance, beefy specs, and high-refresh-rate panel, but the pricing and battery life are sore points.

Full-power Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics. Eye-catching, thin-bezel design. Discrete left and right touchpad buttons. Transparent QWER keys are an unusual, cool touch.

Middling battery life. Expensive given the specs.

Bottom Line: A midrange gaming laptop designed with MOBAs in mind, the Asus ROG Strix Hero II entices with its subdued appearance, beefy specs, and high-refresh-rate panel, but the pricing and battery life are sore points.

Asus ROG Strix GL504 Scar II review: Great screen, but an ugly paint job

 

With a slim-bezel, 144Hz display and Nvidia 1070 GPU, this is a feature-packed 15-inch laptop, even if it's not a looker.

Excellent performance from a strong CPU-GPU combo. The better-than-most 144Hz screen has a slim bezel, giving it a modern feel.

The boxy camo-covered body doesn't look particularly interesting. The backlit keyboard lacks individual key lighting. Battery life isn't great, even for a gaming laptop.

The Asus Strix Scar II has great performance and a high refresh rate screen with a thin bezel. But it still looks like it was designed in a dorm room.

Asus ROG Strix GL504 Hero II Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Looking for a bargain 144Hz gaming laptop to play all your favourite MOBA and FPS games? The Asus ROG Strix GL504 Hero II may just be the ticket

One of the cheapest 144Hz gaming laptops around ; Multitude of RGB lighting options ; Keyboard and trackpad make for easy typing and browsing

Outperformed by similarly priced laptops ; Struggles to cope with modern AAA games in Full HD

One of the cheapest gaming laptops you'll find with a 144Hz display, but rival options offer superior performances for less cash

Hands on: Asus ROG Strix Scar II review

 

Mid-range gaming at 144Hz

Nice looks ; Plenty of RGB lighting ; 144Hz screen refresh rate

Not a big upgrade over the previous model

The ROG Strix Scar II may not feature major changes over its predecessor, but the ones Asus has made are significant, and if the new laptop delivers a similar level of performance it could be a great buy.

Hands on: Asus ROG Strix Hero II review

 

One attractive and affordable gaming laptop

Attractive looks ; Impressive RGB lighting ; Amply equipped for MoBAs and most modern games

Maybe a little too excessive for MoBA players

The Asus Strix Hero II is an attractive gaming laptop that’s well-equipped for its price.
