Asus K50IJ-BNC5

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: The Asus K501J-BCN5 serves up long battery life, a backlit keyboard, and a year of AV protection. Unfortunately, these Next Class features add a considerable sum to the price; we like a cheaper yet similarly configured Asus K501J model better.
  • Cons: Next Class features add to the bill; underwhelming preinstalled software; no HDMI.

Review Asus K50IN Notebook

Notebookcheck
23 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The fancy Asus K50IN leaves behind a thoroughly good impression overall. Thus the low temperature development as well as the low sound development is convincing. In addition on one hand the workmanship and on the other hand the keyboard barely gives cause for criticism. Also the sound knows how to please, with the exception of the docile bass. Furthermore the display and the battery life are in the middle field.
  • Pros: Fancy design, Low temperature, Low noise development, Bright display..., The low noise and heat development respectively and the fancy design.
  • Cons: ... with a high black level and low image stability, Poor gaming performance, Short battery life under load, Sluggish in initial state, No HDMI port, A more pleasant touchpad, a somewhat longer battery life and better performance from games. In addition a higher image stability of the display and more bass in the loudspeakers. Any questions?

  • Summary: Overall the K50 is a good machine. Its performance won’t blow you away, but it copes with general office use and multimedia well for a machine in this price range. The screen is very good overall, although the lack of digital output for a TV or monitor is sadly disappointing - the combination of CPU and nVidia GFX could cope with 1080p easily, but its unfortunate that if you wanted to view full HD content that this machine only offers analog output.

ASUS K50

LAPTOP Magazine
7 October 2009
  • Summary: The ASUS K50 was a pleasure to use. It offered zippy performance speeds in comparison to similarly priced notebooks, a comfortable keyboard, and lengthy battery life. At $699, though, the K50 is currently $100 more expensive than comparable systems such as the Gateway NV5807u. While the latter system may have shorter battery life, this factor hardly outweighs the price differential.
