Summary: Starting for the complements.. The audio and mic entrance, are in the right side, just to annoy the mouse space movement. The resolution could be better.. actual max res. is 1366x768, if were 1440x900 wold be awsome!! or 1080p xD The sound is veeery nice, but at max volume, isn't louder enough as too many other laptops. The keyboard is just great! I love the backlights!! Processor and graphic card.. no words.. own!!!
ASUS Republic of Gamers G51J-3D 15.6-Inch 3-D Gaming Laptop (Black)

Summary: Love this laptop, I was going to return it because it only takes 4GB RAM, but I tested one of these at a local computer outlet & it performed as well as the other unit with 8GB RAM & same Core i7 processor! BIG PLUS, this thing came with 3D kit worth $200.00 & provides the BEST 3D I have ever experienced!
Many pros, many cons, good value overall for 3D gaming

Summary: Had this laptop for nearly a month, and my experience with it ranges from 2 to 5 stars, depending on what I'm doing. I was considering giving this 3 stars overall, but considering the price, I think it deserves a 4 star, though it really depends what you intend to do with this laptop. Note that this is a long review. I tried to summarize everything in the first sentence of each bullet so people can skim through it quickly if they aren't interested in the details.
Summary: I had high hopes for gaming in 3d. especially Battlefield Bad Company 2 Unfortunately I kept getting the blue screen crash for hardware problems. In addition it ran very very hot. When I called Asus their only answer was to wipe the hard drive and start over. Since I had only had the computer a few days that seemed futile so I returned the computer to Amazon and am out the $42.00 in shipping and insurance.
Summary: If you are considering this laptop as a 3D gaming device, you will probably be satisfied. If you want a screaming 2D computer, you will be elated (it's REALLY fast). If you are using it for 3D photo and video, forget it. This unit has apparently been crippled on purpose to NOT be compatible with the current standards of the industry in 3D software and hardware. For instance, standard 3D glasses at $40 won't work, but their $200 ones do.
Summary: Ive owned the Asus G60 Asus G72 Asus G73 and now the Asus G51J 3D. There is nothing bad about this computer at all...except the battery life...everything running fully after 10 min i have about 20 percent battery left but if you use the right softwareu can clock it down to a reasonable speed and the battery will last up to 2 hours almost!!!
Summary: I own an Asus G50-A1 that I bought ~Nov 2009; it has been rock solid and met all of my expectations and is in daily use. Based on that experience, I purchased an Asus G51J from Amazon Dec 2010; had everything the G50 had, but quad-core, LED blacklit LCD, 1920x1080 (vs 1600x1080) screen, etc. Unfortunately, the machine constantly BSOD'ed. Amazon gave me a complete refund (good job guys!) and I immediately (yesterday) purchased the "step up" machine, the G51J-3D.
