Summary: This laptop is purely a piece of s***. My brother had brought it for himself, but never used it so he decided to give it to me. I never heard of Asus before he gave me this laptop and I'm always skeptical of electronics which I've never heard the name of before.
Summary: I purchased this laptop in April 2011. In December 2011 it crashed and luckily I had purchased a one year Geek Squad repair contract so it was fixed. It had to be restored back to original condition so I lost everything that had been stored on it.
Summary: I purchased the computer in January of this year. The connection for the charger on the computer got lose by July and was unable to charge the battery. We asked repair. We needed to send the product to Asus, wait for the product to come back for 2 weeks.
Summary: I should have taken this piece of bad hardware back when I had the chance. I've had to restore it 4 times with the restoration disks I burned the first time I fired it up. The hard drive keeps on freezing, the user profiles won't load, and now the network adapter isn't working!
Summary: My k52 has cracked/broken hinge and screen frame, and the cheap thin cover over the heat sink fins. It had lines apear and disappear magically, then two weeks later it wont even start or charge. I have sent it back to ASUS. Let's see what I get back.
Summary: Would give it 0 star if I could Bought the refurbished product online and ran into blue screens from time to time close to 3 months period. Finally the blue-screen situation got out of hands and I had to restore the system. Did so by following their e-manual and start with F9 / EMS.
Summary: I bought this unit for a friend of mine as a gift. I have heard that Asus brand is good and is built to last. This unit (Asus K52T-BBR5) failed right out of the box. I could not make it to stay on and log in. It would shut down and reboot itself, unless I switch to safe mode.
Summary: We bought this computer 17 months ago. It is now completely useless unless we spend $180 on fixing the lcd cable. We use this computer about 2 hours a week for streaming. Talking with Asus they have refused to help us in anyway. I will never buy an asus computer again.
