I was perfectly satisfied with my K52F up until about three weeks ago. Around that time, I noticed a catch in the hinge area whenever I opened it up. Eventually, said hinge broke completely in half and the surrounding plastic fell away.
A bit of research revealed that the problem of the breaking hinge is a case flaw that several people had suffered from. According to what I unearthed, the Asus warranty covered this due to it being the fault of the company. The Asus warranty required me to send my computer in (on my own dime) to have them evaluate whether or not the damage was caused by me. The fact that I'd attempted to superglue my computer back together made me apprehensive about doing this, so I got in touch with a local store and got a reasonable quote on fixing it. Unfortunately, while in the store's custody, the LCD screen quit working.
Like I said, the laptop itself ran great; it's just incredibly upsetting that the machine broke after less than a year of use.
I couldn't be happier with my Asus. It's fast and I have yet to have a problem after using it for over a year. I run multiple programs at once without any slow down. With 4gb of RAM it runs really fast.
As one other person mentioned the volume is pretty low. That is the one flaw I have found on this computer.
The other thing that took getting used to is the click mouse. It is not separated like other laptops I have had. Basically you have to click all the way to the left or right for it to register. It took some getting used to, but know I don't have a problem.
Overall a great brand and a great computer.
