Asus ZenBook UX530UX (i7-7500U, GTX 950M) Laptop Review

 

Tame lightweight. A 15-inch device which is still as thin as 17 mm and weighs only 1630 grams? A brilliant screen with minimal bezels? A battery runtime lasting a whole day? We will check into those big promises the manufacturer has made, thoroughly...

stable aluminum case ; very small & light for a 15-inch device ; good Full HD display ; energy-efficient all-rounder ; relatively quiet & cool

high price ; 2x USB 2.0 ; no Thunderbolt ; slow card reader ; loud touchpad buttons ; performance lower than possible ; heavy throttling in battery mode ; mediocre SSD ; fan noise rather high-pitched ; bad speakers

It is rather obvious which audience the Asus ZenBook UX530UX caters to: People who want to be mobile, but who still do not want to do without a 15-inch display and can spare the money. The new ZenBook is small, lightweight, elegant and of a...

Asus ZenBook UX530 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Previously, the Asus ZenBook range has been of note in our testing, and we're curious to see if the UX530, with its current generation i7 processor, NVIDIA graphics card, and hopefully snappy SSD can live up to our expectations. Find out in our full...

ASUS ZenBook UX530 15.6" Laptop - Grey

 

Light and slim.

Apart from it being slim and light, nothing else seemed to be of quality. Packaging was very poor and there was no fingerprint sensor. Charger didn't look very robust. I returned the product, so didn't get to test performance.

ASUS ZenBook UX530 15.6" Laptop - Grey

 

This Laptop was on my preferred list of high spec. machines, but outside my price range. So when it was offered for sale at just over £700, it was a no brainer and thankfully I snapped it up. With its large SSD and other features, i7 processor, GPU...

ASUS ZenBook UX530 15.6" Laptop - Grey

 

The laptop is lightning fast. It has a fantastic screen that is perfect for those that spend hours and hours writing essays, dissertations and web-surfing. Easy on the eyes.

There is a little bit of backlight bleed on the screen. However, only noticeable on a black screen in a dark room.

Beautiful design and fast processor makes it a great laptop for everyday and for gaming.

One of th arrow keys has already begun to squeak after a month of ownership.

ASUS ZenBook UX530 15.6" Laptop - Grey

 

Compact yet sizeable screen. Good all round performer.

Keyboard set forward a little too far for those of us with small hands. Would benefit from another USB port given the need to sacrifice one for the ethernet connection.

ASUS ZenBook UX530 15.6" Laptop - Grey

 

Excellent battery life, sleek design, high performance

The finish on the outer casing is a bit plasticky and as such I already have a little chip out of the back part of the lid. I've only had it about 3 weeks

Nice design

After just 12days, the plug in charger didn't work anymore. Disgusting.
