    Colors are sooooo bad! Blacks are beyond grey, and it really feels like a tease. You get solid specs, but this screen is literally worse than My 10yr old $500 walmart dell no lie! Buy this ONLY if you have 0 intention of enjoying the screen. I can’t stress how ugly the image quality is. Like at all.

    I bought this laptop for my daughter to do online schooling. After after a few weeks the machine started to disconnect from the wi-fi, but then would reconnect and work for a time. Then after 2 months the machine would rarely connect so we contacted Asus for repair. They asked us to send in the machine. We did that, which took seemingly forever to get it back. It’s now back, I just opened the box. A note in the box says it has no issues, works fine. Really?!! First thing I did was try to connect to the internet…NOPE. I guess when the repair center tested it they forgot to check the network adapter which was the reason it was sent in. I’m very unhappy now with ASUS, we have a brand new machine which is worthless.

    To start, I believe this may be the first review I have ever left. My experience has been so negative that I feel compelled to share.
    In the beginning, the laptop seemed and worked great. We have a newborn in the house, though, so I was barely able to use it. When I did, I was impressed with its light weight, its overall design, and the processing speed. All were a great improvement over my older HP laptop.
    However, one day about 3 weeks after buying the laptop, the screen behaved oddly. It pixelated and froze. Once restarted, it operated properly, but obviously this was still an alarming development in a weeks old computer. I should have immediately sent in a return request to Amazon, but because of my odd Covid-related work schedule and our newborn, I just didn’t react quickly enough. My BIG mistake.
    The next time I had a chance to use the laptop again, the screen conked out. To my dismay (and anger at myself), this was 2 days after the return window had closed. Now I was stuck. I tried restarting it, but each time the screen would start off fine, but then get ‘flashy’ (I’m not technically astute enough to describe its behavior any better), then it would go completely pixelated. Finally, it went irrecoverably black.
    Here’s where it gets ugly. The ASUS online support is totally unavailable and misleading, referencing the coronavirus as a cause. There is no way to create an online RMA, as the website claims. Nor is their online tech and troubleshooting assistance available through chat, which again, the website claims. The clicks just circle you back around to homepage. The only way to get assistance is through a phone call. I called twice, and was on hold for 12 minutes before quitting, then 20 minutes before quitting.
    A curiosity- the voice over that is playing while you are on hold brags about how many awards they won in 2014. 2014 was 6 years ago! That is not a good sign. But I digress,
    I started to wonder if maybe they simply NEVER answered. “Let’s just ship out some bad PCs with no recourse for the customers”– sure, not a long-term solution, but they could do well for the quarter.

    I committed to waiting them out, and on the third try I was able to get hold of a customer service rep after 50 minutes on hold. He was fairly helpful, though I did not like how forcefully he tried to get me to troubleshoot the problem myself. The problem was so obviously a manufacturer’s flaw and not something user related that I feel like a standup company should have just apologized and offered to next-day a replacement to someone in my situation. That was far from the case. I was given and RMA and label to ship it back. That was ~October 23rd. They estimate the computer will be fixed within 10 days of receiving it, 10 days! Thankfully, I am not in a desperate situation. I have access to my old computer and my work computer. Imagine someone who needed a computer for their livelihood or school. 10 days is an eternity! Especially when you add in the transit times. That’s 2 plus weeks.
    Except it’s even worse. I tracked the shipment, and it arrived at the repair site on the 28th of October. However, when you use the ASUS RMA status checker, they don’t acknowledge receiving it until November 3rd. So if they’re measuring their turnaround time on repairs, but doing so with manipulated receipt date, the already terrible 10 days is meaningless. Anyway, they set an estimated completion date. That date came, and the FIELD disappeared from the ASUS RMA status checker. The field was gone, not just the date. Now, it has reappeared, of course with the date pushed out.
    For an expensive purchase, this seems like it should be illegal. They have lemon laws for car; I wish there were similar for computers.
    Again, I am in no hardship. I have access to computers if needed. I feel for anyone who buys an ASUS and needs it, and has something go wrong. What happens if I get it back and the same issue recurs, or another pops up? Another hour plus with customer service, and another month turnaround to get it fixed?
    Maybe it is a great computer, and I just got the one in the bunch that was botched. I can’t say. I have had one ASUS computer, and that one ASUS computer was trash. So they are batting .000 for me.
    Maybe Amazon can pressure companies that sell big ticket items to have some basic standards of customer service? ASUS has none. Their customer service is appalling. My wife bought an HP a week before I bought my ASUS. She was jealous of the ASUS, preferring its appearance and ergonomics. That jealousy disappeared pretty quickly, though. She had a minor problem with her laptop, and a rep talked her through it in minutes.
    And here I am, typing this review on my old computer.

    The product is defective. the USB C port is not working and that is the most important port on the laptop as it connects to the dock station.
    The customer support was not helpful as they immediately ask to reset the laptop (very typical) with no clear solution in sight. Certainly not expected from ASUS.
    Disappointed. Will ask for return.

    I don’t usually review products but I just wanted to warn future buyers that if you are unlucky enough to have any issues with your ASUS, customer service will not take care of you. I took great care of my laptop but the display started having issues four months after purchase. While it was covered by warranty, the only repair locations are in NY and you have to ship the laptop out. ASUS refuses to cross ship a laptop to use in the meantime even though the issue was their design. This means that, during a pandemic where most people’s careers and activities rely on computer access, I am expected to wait over three weeks now for my computer. I am a graduate student and have had to go around borrowing other people’s laptops for classes. There has been minimal communication from ASUS. Hopefully this won’t happen to anyone else, because this year is tough enough without a large company with plenty of resources treating their customers like this.

    My last HP laptop quit working and was not impressive, so I decided to go back to ASUS, and boy am I glad I did. This PC has 8GB of RAM and a 512GB HD. The Core i5 processor is very fast. Touchpad is very comfortable to use and the keyboard is great. It reminds me a lot of my former Macbook in terms of design. The backlit keyboard is a huge plus and the 10-key is small so it doesn’t get in the way. The small bezels help reduce the size while still getting an acceptable screen size. Not the lightest, but it isn’t heavy.

    The screen quality isn’t amazing amazing, but is definitely good. Battery life is a 7/10 and the size of the charger adapter is a bit clunky.

    This PC will primarily be used for work from home purposes (I work in IT) and it is awesome in doing that job. I have always been a huge fan of ASUS and recommend them regularly. This is a great PC for that use as well as document processing, web browsing, YouTube/Netflix watching, etc. Highly recommended!

    This Laptop was advertised as refurbished and checked.
    The item was a late delivery and did not even boot up when started.

    Battery life isn’t that great but not critical for what I use it for. screen clarity is great. Love the lit keyboard.

    Very unhappy with the fact that my keyboard is NOT backlit as advertised. I also had this for 2 days and the price went down by almost $100.00. Battery life is not great, my 5 year old Dell’s was much better. I need this for work so it does the job, but I’m not happy with the price I paid to have a missing advertised feature (backlit keyboard).
    UPDATED REVIEW: Seller is responsive to messaging, but isn’t working with me; offered me $20.00 for the inconvenience of a missing backlit keyboard which does nothing for me. The battery life is deplorable, and I can’t be without a laptop right now as this is a very busy time for my work. It’s an insult seeing as how they still have an incorrect listing posted and dropped the price by almost 100.00 less than 48 hrs after I received my laptop and I now see the battery life is less than 2 hours per charge, on battery saver mode. I even asked if the seller had comparable options. They said no. Told me to just return it. I’ll never use this seller again. Be careful!

    Never had so many connectivity issues with a laptop. Essentially useless after only a few months.
