Needless to say it was not a good buy.

JIM SHADDIX, Amazon
16 December 2014
  • Summary: The computer I received was NOT the one in the posting, the one I received had stickers on it and was filthy. I would not boot and when I plugged it in it started to burn, the left mouse button is broken and there is a crack in the mother board. Needless to say it was not a good buy.

Great while it lasted

Joshua G., Newegg
3 May 2014
  • Summary: this laptop didn't last and it cost a fortune. The warranty was worthless, needed hundreds of dollars in repairs and took a long time to turn it around but because it was literally days after the warranty expired even though I opened the ticket before the warranty expired, ASUS charged me.
  • Pros: great for gaming
  • Cons: low screen resolution, horrific battery life, unreliable, bad warranty

Barry W., Newegg

  • Pros: Good graphics, long battery life
  • Cons: Heavy, bios will not update, touch pad is...touchy...

Lasted less than a year

Wes S., Newegg
28 July 2012

  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Ugly as heck Weighs a ton Died after less than a year of light use

Bad Experience So Far

James B., Newegg
4 July 2012
  • Summary: The wireless on the laptop was broken out of the box. I could see the signal at times and it would drop away completely. Has nothing to do with the router and modem since I kept signals on all other devices. Tried many things with the help of ASUS forum members.
  • Pros: Nice display and solid design. Seems to be fast from what i can tell.
  • Cons: Wireless broken. Pretty poor tech support from ASUS so far.

G74Sx

Carl M., Newegg
26 June 2012
  • Summary: I want to love it. Thought with the rep ASUS had for hardware parts that a laptop built form those parts was a can't miss. Spent a lot of money for a lemon. Oh, ASUS does not replace laptops.
  • Pros: Laptop is fast. Some of the bloatware is even useful. ASUS has a useful update utility that keeps the hardware drivers current. Laptop graphics card, is pretty good. LOVE the ASUS interface included with the system. Physically the laptop looks mean.
  • Cons: Weight, size, hard to find a suitable bag that isn't 200 bucks. If you search about this laptop you will find that many G74sx laptops will freeze upon waking up from sleep mode, hibernate, or standby. I am working on my 3rd RMA with ASUS since I purchased this laptop last November. The first one ...

ASUS EXTENDED WARRATNY.. WATCH OUT

Neil H., Newegg
16 June 2012
  • Summary: Asus I just want you to know I will make sure on all sites that I purchase from that it is known how you treat your customers.
  • Pros: Their laptops are great and I have had very little issue with mine that I have owned for almost a year.
  • Cons: I am writting this review to let anyone know that is purchasing an extended warranty to watch out. Their RMA deparment is among the worst I have delt with in a long time. Why register a product if when you need to RMA something you have to show them proof that you paid for the warranty all over a...
