Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW review

 

Crushing performance at a fair price comes with a few catches in Asus' UX501.

There’s a lot to like about the Asus Zenbook UX501VW-DS71T. The laptop is a real bruiser, meeting the competition toe-to-toe and coming out the winner as often as not, despite a price tag that’s hundreds less than similar competitors from Apple and...

Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW review: Killer specs and pricing, offset by small flaws

 

In the world of premium 15-inch notebooks, the Zenbook Pro stands out by offering performance parts at a price that's unmatched by its competitors. Granted, there are a few trade-offs.

Great overall performance ; Incredible value ; Comfortable keyboard

Fit and finish issues ; Speakers are surprisingly weak ; Middling battery life

On paper, the Zenbook Pro is an incredible deal. It features some extremely high-end parts, yet is amazingly affordable compared to its competitors.

Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW-DS71T

 

The Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW-DS71T is an excellent desktop-replacement laptop with a fast SSD and strong performance, and it costs less than much of the competition.

Sleek design. Long battery life. Strong productivity performance. Fast PCIe SSD. Vivid 4K screen. USB-C with Thunderbolt port.

Heavy. Lots of bloatware.

Conclusions The Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW-DS71T is a high-end desktop replacement with a crisp 4K screen, plenty of networking options, best-in-class battery life, and strong performance. It doesn't stand out like last year's model did at the time, in...

Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW Notebook Review

 

Skylake all-rounder. The popular UX501 series gets Skylake, DDR4, USB Type-C with Thunderbolt 2.0, and a few other minor changes. Is this a vast improvement over last year's Haswell model?

fast display response times; No PWM, higher contrast, balanced multimedia, word processing, and gaming performance, idling fans under low loads, DDR4, USB Type-C w/ Thunderbolt 3, NVMe SSD, long battery life, wide color gamut, thin and sleek design

no substantial CPU performance boost from previous generation, dimmer display brightness; minor backlight bleeding, no auxiliary or Macro keys, higher battery capacity at the cost of secondary storage, mDP port removed, pricey

Aside from specification differences (Skylake, DDR4, USB Type-C, NVMe, etc.) between the UX501VW and UX501JW, the latest revision brings longer battery life and even a few updates to the display with higher contrast and deeper colors. Maximum...

ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501VW Review – 15.6″ 4K Touch Laptop (UX501VW-DS71)

 

Excellent CPU, GPU and RAM specs ; Lightning fast SSD hard drive performance ; Superb display sharpness ; Fantastic battery power ; Great overall performance and cooling ; Nice design ; Decent price

Terrible display glare ; Weak contrast level ; Color accuracy could have been better ; One more HDMI port would have been nice

The bottom line for the ZenBook Pro UX501VW from Asus is that, while you could definitely get your hands on a superior display performer like Acer’s Aspire V15 Ntiro Black Edition , the ZenBook is a great piece of PC technology in terms of internal...

Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW

 

The ZenBook UX501VW is a high-end Windows laptop for those who are after power, battery life and an impressive screen, alongside a slim and stylish chassis. Its chief rivals are the 15in MacBook Pro and the latest Dell XPS 15.

Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW review - sharper than a MacBook Pro?

 

The Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW has a great 4K screen but its processing power could be better

If all you’re after is raw power, then the Chillblast Samurai is probably a better buy at this kind of price, but then you’re also settling for an off-the-shelf Clevo chassis rather than something a bit more elegant. There’s also the less expensive...

Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW review

 

The ZenBook Pro UX501VW is a high-end desktop replacement that's not short on power, delivers a crisp 4K display and has enduring battery life.

Powerful Intel Skylake processor, 4K screen, GeForce GTX 960M, long life, good design, competitive price

Bulky, heavy on bloatware, dim display

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Rolled the dice and got one, defective

 

Was a little concerned about buying on of these, but really was hoping for a good one. So many reports of bad computers, I rolled the dice on a good deal. Not such a good deal after all. Got that bad screen, packed it right back up and sent for RMA....

Don't know yet

Defective screen, nice big white dot just about center screen. changed a couple of screens, still there :( Didn't even bother to go any further with a brand new item, sending back.
