I ordered this laptop on sale, off the Best Buy website. While it is better than my current, ancient laptop, it is not worth the money and I am returning it.
I find the screen resolution is not of very great quality. Although the speakers are fairly decent, they have made quite a few crackling sounds, even though I have never turned the volume up passed 75%. The track pad is rough to use, and the right & left clickers are very stiff, actually hurting my fingers from having to click so hard. It is nowhere near as fast as I imagined it would be either. The positives: tt is fairly light, the battery is decent enough I suppose, it appears to be built physically strong. I consider these of average standard, though.
It can play some games like Outlast,Fallout New Vegas, Dishonored, Borderland- 1&2 so like some what graphic games
Bought this laptop...blah blah blah!
This laptop is complete garbage! The mouse PAD is super sensitive.
Wish I could bring it back!
Dont, buy it. I went to the store to buy it because i didnt believe when people saidd it was bad. It didnt turn on after I purchased it. and many people were lined up to return the ASUS X551CA 15.6" Laptop - Black (Intel Pentium 2117U/ 750GB HDD/ 6GB RAM/ Windows). They said they had to continuosly go to customer support.
I needed a simple laptop for school and I figured this would be a good one. Unfortunately, it only worked for a week or so. After it updated, it just stopped working.
- OK performance
- Extremely cheap plastic build. The surface in the middle of the keyboard wobbles when typing. The plastic surrounding the screen can easily bend outward when pulled or any dirt can easily lodge in there.
The fair value of this laptop is about $[..]. I bought it for $[...], and found out that the performance lacked.
So, I returned it. As there are 15.6" Toshiba, DELL and ASUS laptops with i5-4200U or I5-4210U and 8GBRAM and DVD drives that sell for $[...] to $[..]. Apart from being pricy for it's performance, I had no other issues. ASUS is a good manufacturer. I only have had problems with ACER, Gateway, Compaq and HP computer. And not much issues with Toshiba, Dell and ASUS.
Wasted two days of my life trying to get Windows 8 to update - there were over 100 updates that needed to be done out of the box. Seems like Microsoft is determined to drive people into the arms of Apple. Worst experience with a computer I've ever had.
At the begining it was okay, except windows 8.... The hardware start to make noice occasionally the second week, not the cooling fan, the cooling is great. Then the system crashed once on friday and two times on sunday before I had return it to bestbuy. It's a " 0" star item, but I give 5 stars to bestbuy's easy return policy.
- OK performance
- Aesthetically nice
- Extremely cheap plastic build compared to other brands
- Weak battery life (Lasts about 2h)
- Asus doesn't include the Windows product key in the packaging
- Not wired mouse-friendly with all the USB ports on the left side
I ordered this product online and as soon as I opened the box I noticed that there is no spot for sim or camera cards. This is the first lap top that I seen in a long time that doesn't take them. I shipped it back the same day. I a digital world that we live in this should be standard.
Bought this computer this morning and took back same day battery lasted only 2 hours and started glitching poor product asked for money back would not buy ASUS again.
I buy this notebook for my school purpose but iam getting sick to use this.having only two usb ports and the both ports are on the same side i cant plug in two devices at the same time.Processor getting hot and slow and held when i used some softwares(photoshop,illustrator)
last and the least battery timeings are very poor only 2hours,even though it fully charged
Bought this on line. Poorly packaged though. Box inside a box with not enough padding.
Battery life is not as long as advertised and of course Windows 8 sucks.
But overall a pretty good value.
Bought this computer because support for XP was ending. Paid extra and bought the version with the optical drive for CD/DVD and the sound quality is quite poor. Sounds very tinny and squeezed. Visually the images are crisp and clean, but there is a bit of glare on the screen. Flat keyboard also takes a while to get used to. Comes with Windows 8 which is difficult to navigate and the cursor jumps around a lot without explanation. Not very user friendly at all, like XP, which is nicely laid out and easy to navigate. If you're tech savvy you'll probably be ok.
I bought it a month ago and so far very happy with it. Very fast, great keyboard, battery lasts for 5 hours (I surf inet, type documents, use excel), not heavy compared to other comps of this size.
The laptop is fine. But since the day I bought it ,the power has only lasted half an hour without having to be recharged. This is not good enough. I could be on a plane for 4-5 hours and I expect my computer to be useable enough for most of the trip. Only bought a laptop instead of desktop so it was portable!
Bought this to use for school work And to use for day to day emails. I love it. Great laptop for a great price, the keyboard is great very smooth and the screen seems wider then usual.
I purchased this laptop for my wife. She uses it for e-mails, surfing the net and playing internet games(bingo, word games etc:). The computer comes installed with Windows 8 which I immediately upgraded to 8.1. So far we are extremely happy with it's performance.
Bought one. Hated OS...
Battery is non-user replaceable. Mine crapped out on FIRST CHARGE after less than 2 hours. Nice keyboard, but unit is super slow.
HD is pre-partitioned...why?....
All in all a cheap and disappointing purchase.
Returned it within 24 hours
This is a great deal with 6gb of RAM without any lagging. I bought it for my daughter for her Birthday and she loved the laptop. The best thing about this pc is it is so cool it never get's hot. I would say this pc is for students for working and for internet
For such a small price, this machine will leave you impressed. It outperforms my i5 Sony.
I bought my laptop mostly to use Word and to check emails / use the internet, so I am not the best reviewer if you want to use this computer for gaming or downloading. I really love it for what I use it for...the internet easily opens multiple pages and keeps them open for easy access between different pages. The laptop boots up quickly and is light weight and the battery has a long life. I am still getting used to Windows 8, but that is not reflective of the laptop. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to other users.
I like it. Very good quality/price
I bought this a few weeks ago because my HP broke down. Compared to other laptops out there, this computer is great value. Has everything I need, is fast, and I like that its light in weight.
Works great, good value
My main gripe is that Wifi adapter on this thing just refuses to connect to my N network. I have not encountered that with any other device: all kinds of laptops, tablets, phones and a smart tv work just fine. This is a problematic adapter, I had same issues with other laptops that come with it.
Other than that, it's an ok laptop. Flimsy and plasticy, but that's what you get for so little money.
Anyway, I returned it due to the wifi issue and will probably stick with more expensive laptops. Just too many issues with sub-1000$ ones I tried during this and last year.
I bought this laptop to use while my regular computer is out for repairs and I can't complain. It does all of the basics very well, although I wish it came with a copy of even basic Microsoft Word. I personally dislike Windows 8, but it works well and ASUS has done a good job of integrating their components with the operating system in such a way that it works seamlessly. I only have two complaints. The first is that the hard drive comes pre-segregated into two separate partitions, which I hate. My second complaint is that I bought this from Best Buy. They promise one day shipping which actually took a full week. It also was [...] cheaper when I bought it, so there is that.
This is a good buy if it is on sale. The casing is plastic but screen is good quality and the sound is great. Boots windows fast
and does not get hot after extended period of usage. The only thing I don't like is that it does not have removable external battery.
I just bought this a couple of days ago and I must say it is a remarkable laptop. it is fast has no problem the the processer. the battery last about 5 hours. The software is amazing and the hd screen makes it even better.
Good value for how much it costs. Runs exactly how I need it with no problems and relatively fast.
love it, glad I have it, no problems yet
This laptop is an excellent deal for the money. It is very quiet and it is very fast. The battery life is not 5 hours but is not bad at a little over 3 hours. Windows 8 is not as bad as everyone says once you get used to it. It is actually very neat in some ways. Overall, it is a great deal.
I would recommend this computer to anyone looking to purchase a laptop, it's fast and easy to use
I LIKE THE COMPUTER BUT I WISH I HAD MY wINDOW 7 BACK! I HAVE A HARD TIME WITH SENSITIVITY ON USING wINDOWS 8 - (see what I mean?) I didn't even realize I put the cap on! I also have a hard time placing the curser on anything because it is always jumping off! Also - I may be working on FB and my screen grows bigger and bigger! Scrabble too! I am hoping to get use to this - BTW, I LOVE my Skype - my camera works GREAT! My other computer camera didn't.
We purchased this laptop during the Boxing Day sale and it's a great laptop for the price. It starts up quickly, connected easily to our network and air printer, so if you want a secondary machine for web browsing, email, Netflix, this is a decent computer; not a big fan of Windows 8 though.
product works great
My family and I are extremely pleased with the purchase of this computer it's easy to use and very reliable, we would most definitely purchase another one when looking for a second computer
Good 'puter for the money. Fast delivery and such. Happy customer so far.
My Asus laptop only has two USB ports. I'm using one for a wireless mouse and the other for printer, so every time I need to plug USB in, I have to unplug something. And then when I put the old thing back. The overall is ok and the weight of the laptop is really light.
Fairly basic laptop. Boots up quickly and functions exactly as it should. I'm not thrilled with Windows 8, but that's not an Asus issue. Only real concern is the battery life is remarkably short. I don't plan on using without being plugged in for the most part, but the few times I do go mobile with it I get precious little time before the battery conks out. For basic home use though this is a decent laptop, particularly when considering the low price I paid.
Quiet, fast, very light, nice feeling keyboard
Very pleased with the product.
Windows 8 is actually pretty good once you change some of the settings.
Would recommend this product.
I think ASUS is my new brand favourite. The quality seems to be here and the price for quality is exactly what I am looking for. I have not had to use technical support, and that is probably a good thing too!
It's EXACTLY what he wanted for a computer. We would rate it a 5 if it came preloaded with software. It's reasonably fast and Windows 8 takes a bit to get used to, but it's a great laptop.
Overall, I am happy with this computer. I only use the computer for day to day activities, surfing, emails etc. and this computer is great for that, its speed is quite fast. The material is a little cheap , but for the price I paid, it is acceptable. I travel a lot and this computer is easy to travel with, it's very light and quite slim.
It is a nice looking computer. Good size. Seems to handle tasks well. I am not sure I am a big fan of the windows 8 program but I would recommend this computer for the price.
Only had this laptop for a few days, but so far i love it! It is my first pc but i'm very impressed. Very quiet, half the time you cant hear that it is running. Very surprised with how pleased i am with windows 8. Very quiet, comfortable keyboard. And runs surprisingly large games. Very fast, reliable and all for a very good, reasonable price. Highly recommended!!!
This laptop is perfect for some gaming and school us I got this laptop for school and I love it I give it a 5 out of 5 it's the best for it's price. Better than my Hp pavilion dv100se witch sucks
This laptops runs great for the value....no complaints, except for the audio software it comes with and the fact that the battery doesn't appear to be accessible the way most laptop batteries are. This might be an issue if the battery significantly loses capacity after the warranty is over...not as simple as buying a new battery and popping it in.
Aside from that, it is great!! Totally recommended.
Fast internet browsing.
I recommend this laptop for everyday use!
