A piece of s***

Sarah, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • 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. I saw disaster happening and that's exactly what this laptop is, a disaster. It's a piece of shit and always crashes. I use it mainly for web browsing and that's all.

  • 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.

Don't Waste Your Money

Cynthia L. Brylinsky, Amazon
20 October 2012
  • 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. Nothing major as I do back up important things but still a hassle. Now two days ago it totally died (October 2012) and will not turn on. I now am purchasing another laptop in less than two years.

Very very poor service

Health Consience, Amazon
5 August 2012
  • 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. When we received the computer back, we noticed that the original problem was repaired, but half of the keys on the keyboard do not work.

Stay Away

Ossie, Amazon
22 June 2012
  • 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! Don't look to much at the specs because they are not all that they are cut out to be.

cheap plastic

lacrema, Amazon
7 May 2012
  • 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. Other than those issues, the cpu, ram ect made it o.k fast. I bought it on QVC and wouldn't do it again. Still waiting for it to come back.........

Bad product, bad customer support

Hubert, Amazon
29 September 2011
  • 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. System then throwing "error" in the screen saying no "WMI" file found. I then had to file a complaint/report with their CSRs who were not helpful at all.

Bad Experience

RS894, Amazon
23 April 2011
  • 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. I contacted Amazon to return the item. Amazon referred me directly to the seller. The seller was take4less. I did not have a good experience communicating with the seller.
