I'm pretty satisfied though, having upgraded from a very sturdy Dell xps17. I saw a great improvement in graphics on this thing (mainly play MMOs). That gddr5 is gold Jerry, gold.
When it first arrived I gave the pre configured setup a chance. Yeah lots of bloatware I didn't like, so did a reinstall of Windows.
Weird thing is it didn't improve performance really. Still felt laggy. It felt like it was a 5400rpm drive. Couldn't live like that so popped the case and took the hdd out (which is super easy btw). Hmm, it was 7200rpm.
After putting in my old Seagate momentus xt hybrid, and installing a clean copy of Windows (don't forget the drivers) things got way better. Boots in half the time. Everything improved performance wise
I personally like the hybrids after a bad experience with a first gen Corsair SSD. So I'm biased. My point is - uprade the hdd first, before ram.
This thing has an m2 slot which was a nice surprise. I can boost the performance even more. I really want to try this, though I've read it's only useful for mechanical drives- not sure if it'd work with a hybrid. Still, cheaper than SSD right now.
Pros : great screen and fast GPU. I like the keyboard, especially the fatter spacebar. Easy to upgrade the hdd. I Like that all the ports are on the sides-which might be trivial for some but a nice improvement from what I've had.
Cons: heat dissipation- would highly recommend a good cooling pad. This thing gets pretty hot.
Hdd- as mentioned, I recommend upgrading it to SSD or hybrid ASAP, and a fresh install of Windows.
Overall you get what you pay for I guess. I got a nice upgrade to do some causal gaming. I'll update this after I put some more mileage on it.

Very happy overall with this laptop. Excellent performance & built well. Comfortable and responsive keyboard. Keys highly visible in darkness with the red back-lit feature. The display resolution, color, clarity, and brilliance is amazing! This baby can handle existing games at highest settings as well as many of the new titles that are out/will be out. Can't wait to see how it handles Sea of Thieves next month, but based on the recommended game settings from the publisher, it looks like it will handle the game very well at medium to high settings.
Cons (Not a big deal though):
1. No light indicator to let you know if your Caps, Num or Scroll locks are on or off.
2. While gaming, the fan gets pretty loud after a while. Not really an issue if you wear a headset, but keep your left hand away from the exhaust vent. That air blowing out is HOT!
Lastly, this is a complaint about Amazon regarding their shipping department. Would it KILL Amazon to use some padding?
The laptop arrived in an Amazon box - Which contained the laptop in it's original packaging and a little bit of brown paper. I opened it to find it damaged (Not sure if it was from shipping or from the Manufacturer when packing). Sent it back for a replacement. 2 days later the replacement arrived.....Same kind of Amazon box with the product inside, only this time there was NO PACKING MATERIAL AT ALL. It was just the product box by itself.....Seriously Amazon?
Luckily, the replacement was undamaged. As of this review, it's been up and running for 3 and a half days now without problems.
First 2 photos are the first laptop that was damaged on arrival. The rest are of the replacement.
The machine I received will not charge the battery.
The first day I received it, I charged it all day.
After more than 8 hours of charging, I unplugged it, and took it into my den to use while I watched TV. I noticed that the battery indicated 100% charge several hours after I had unplugged it, and did not give that much thought except to think wow, this machine has a pretty strong battery.
Sometime after that, the machine suddenly died.
I plugged it in, and the next morning noticed that it had not charged, and the battery icon had an "X" in it. Clicking on the battery icon, it showed "Battery not Present". Picture of this attached. Mind you, I had only received the laptop the day before this.
I contacted ASUS by chat, and they had me do some stuff -- screen shot of what I did is attached. This allowed the battery to charge back up, but exactly the same thing happened again, that is, once the battery ran down, the battery would not charge, and the battery indicated 100% until it ran down.
I contacted ASUS again, and this time they had me restore the OS using Windows Recovery - Restore this PC. This again allowed the battery to charge, but again it indicated 100% until it ran down, then indicated the battery was not present and will not charge.
As long as the laptop is connected to the power supply, it works fine. Very fast, good display, etc.
Obviously there is something wrong with it, so I returned it.
0 stars for the laptop, but ASUS service was easy to get in touch with and did what they could. And Amazon made the return very easy.
0 stars for Amazon packing. They just put the box the laptop came in into another box with no packing material except a piece of crumpled up paper. The box the laptop in was free to bounce around in this box, although it was not damaged that I could see. I have to wonder if the packing at the Amazon fulfillment center is completely done by robots? Perhaps the time and money saved is greater than than the shipping damage.
Heat is just the tip of the iceberg, though. After adding 8Gb of memory and a 250Gb NVME drive and installing Windows on the new drive is where the nightmare began. The picture in the description lists this as an FX503, the label identifies as FX73VE but dxdiag reports this as a ROG gaming laptop. So finding the right driviers was a bit of a nightmare and I still believe as of writing this that the display is either 60hz or it's not being recognized as 120hz, which is how it's advertised, again.
For $800 this isn't a bad machine with about $200 and an hour of time thrown at it. Out of the box it has plenty of I/O, decent upgradability, a good processor and a decent GPU. However, with stock cooling, mechanical HDD, and 1050 ti don't expect this to perform at a 5 star level. As others have said, spend $300-400 more on something with more memory, SSD, GTX 1060, and better cooling.
