Summary: Nice laptop with beautiful design, but worst hard drive quality in all of the laptops I owned in the past 10 years. Hard drive was dead in 6 months and sent it back to the service center. The new hard drive was dead again yesterday (less than 4 months). Very disappointed about ASUS brand.
Broke after a year and then again after a year and a half
8 June 2013
Summary: This computer started out great and dreamy but after a year, the entry point for the charger burned and the laptop couldn't be charged. Sent it to the company because it was still under warranty and they fixed. BUT, two months later the problem reappeared and by then the laptop had no warranty. It was either defective or the product in general is defective because a laptop should last more than a year in a half for this price.
Summary: Well, I spent a few days looking for a decent laptop to replace my old and great Toshiba Satellite A665-S6056. Toshiba laptops had great specs but somehow didn't convince me. I bought this ASUS laptop based on my experience with the ASUS transformer pad which works great, thought this was going to work great too but it's been the greatest dissapointment I've had in a few years.
Summary: This seller should be banned from Amazon. The goods were fraudulent. Their ad said the laptop was turned on once and returned when in fact it was scratched very badly on the cover and bottom of the unit. All the USB ports were oxidized which proves the laptop had been used for months.
Summary: The speed of the laptop was good. It was very quiet. This model does not come with a backlit keyboard for those who think that it does. I would have preferred windows 7, it would have worked better. Looks nice, keyboard is nice, screen resolution is nice. Had problems form the first day, while updating drivers. Recommended manufacturer driver from NVIDIA totally crashed the laptop and caused the laptop to be inaccessible from the login screen.
Summary: I was happy to see this advertisement on amazon saying that this model Asus N56VJ has backlit illuminated keyboard this was major feature I was looking for but most of the N series models in UK don't have backlit keyboard, I ordered this item and received it today but after checking all settings it is confirmed that this model also don't have backlit keyboard, raised call with Amazon, they said their technical team will check and get back in 3-4 business days, overall...
Excerpt: Т.к. юр лицо, не смог обменять, сдал в сервис - брать не хотели, три дня чинили, сказали, что проблема не подтвердилась. Конечно, кнопка нажимается, а то, что перепад, до "1мм допускается". Написал в ASUS - предложили сдать в другой сервисный центр. Это брак!!! Ни разу не видел кривых тачпадов! Молодцы - главное не признавать проблем!
Excerpt: Полностью разочарован. Во первых - качество исполнения, которое я отнес в недостатки; мне попалась какая-то бракованная модель, я относил её в сервисный центр, отработали они быстро, однако кнопки не починили, но хоть тачпад приклеили, хотя он всё равно выступает за край. Сказали, что с кнопками "проблема не подтвердилась", а тачпад "в нормах отклонения asus".
Cons: Мне достался в подарок экземпляр, у которого значительно выступал за край корпуса левый верхний угол тачпада, как будто отклеился; при нажатии на этот тачпад раздается довольно громкий "клик". Через неделю после эксплуатации отвалились две кнопки; при нажатии они "защелкиваются" обратно, но ненадолго - при повторных нажатиях, особенно на угол клопок, они опять выскакивают.
