The port for the charger is a very poor quality made port
23 August 2014
Summary: It is a decent computer. I have had it for 2-3 years now which by now is the standard for an everyday usage laptop. There are a few problems that I had and have currently now. The port for the charger is a very poor quality made port.
Summary: I love the laptop. I've had it for a year and a month, and it does everything I want it to do for a business and entertainment machine. But when they say Asus has terrible customer service, they are NOT kidding. It's not that they're rude. The nice representatives in Jamaica are very friendly.
Summary: My battery failed 10 month later of purchasing. And there is no service center in Texas. I need 1 month in total to get my computer repaired. I have lots of jobs everyday. How can I live without a computer for one month???
Summary: Bought my ASUS N61JV-X2 from Amazon.com in April 2010. After 8 months usage, the battery stop charging also had numerous system failure. Contacted Asus support for help and they REPLIED IN SPANISH.
Summary: I like this machine so far. Not sure why I bought it, because my desktop has fit the bill for quite some time. Everything seems to be working. I guess I've got some portability now--probably more computer than I really needed, but at least I won't have to think about buying another one for some...
Summary: I was excited when I received my N61JV last week and have been using it heavily ever since I got it (moving out useless bloatware, installing programs & driver updates, etc). I'm a fairly fast touch-typer and right out of the box I noticed that the keyboard seemed a bit flimsy and very loud (sort of...
Summary: I haven't had this laptop long enough to give a thorough review but so far I'm very satisfied (more further down) but first... Amazon service is excellent!! My laptop developed a problem (the 3.0 USB port was seriously malfunctioning) and after consulting with Asus tech support and being told to...
Summary: Several years ago the computer maufactures were moving toward the 802.11a/g/n/ wireless internal cards that supported the dual band capabilities (2.4ghz/5ghz). I have attempted to find a laptop with the assurance that this was the currrent standard, by that I mean 5ghz wireless connectivity.
Summary: I shopped for a computer for several months before purchasing the N61JV. I am completely happy with my purchase. It is blazing fast and has a great keyboard with a beautiful screen. I will run 5+ programs including music creation programs as well as have two dozen windows open and it doesn't blink.
Summary: Asus N61jV-x2 Hardware: LCD: A lot of people were complaining about the resolution being only 768X1366. But honestly for the daily use ie watching movies, casual gaming, surfing the web, etc.. it is crisp enough. The contrast is good enough.
