Waste of money

Mike @ Home, Amazon
26 March 2012
  • Summary: At about 12 months the laptop started overheating and giving issues, the display started going then the motherboard died 2 days after warranty was over. ASUS refused to consider a RMA unless I pay the full price. Was a great laptop the first 3 months then just a headache. Best Buy geek squad told me they see this model coming back to the store all the time. Spend your money on another brand - this model is DOA.

Run away from this laptop

S. Kleine, Amazon
24 December 2011
  • Summary: I have a 16-month old G73JH that has been an endless source of frustration and headache - and this will be the last ASUS product I'll buy or recommend in this lifetime. Mind you, I love laptops. All told. I've been issued them from every place I work and have used a pile of different makes, models and designs throughout the past fifteen years. This is, bar none, far and away the worst of the lot.

  • Summary: I ordered a laptop g73jh-rbbx05, first laptop came and had dead pixels. Exchanged it for a different one. Having trouble returning the original. Got the new one before the old one got picked up. Here's the amazing part.. the new one won't load windows... amazing how amazon have terrible quality control.

Looks Durable, But Is Not

Jason Crouch "voracious reader", Amazon
7 September 2011
  • Summary: We received this laptop near the beginning of April. By the beginning of September, it was no longer functional. The charger started developing issues almost immediately, because it is one of those badly-designed chargers that sticks out too far from the body of the laptop. Then, the non-skid pads came off the bottom. Then, the vent on the back broke. Today, I have received a replacement charger from Amazon, in the assumption that it would work with a new charger.

Screen SO fragile, total insecurity

ASUS user, Amazon
5 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this ASUS G73J excited about its two year GLOBAL warranty and for its great reviews. However, within the first year of buying the laptop, I have had to send it in 2 times for screen repair. I am not talking about bright-dots. I am talking about TOTAL screen misfunction. It is a tempting buy because of its specs, but PLEASE do not buy this computer.

Video Fatally Flawed

Charleston Software Associates "WordPress Plu..., Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: At first I loved the laptop. For about a week. Then I installed a few programs and started to notice problems, especially with the video. As the problems became more prevalent I dug deeper. Forums all over the Internet started talking about "random vertical lines" and "black screens". Asus was blaming the ATI video drivers. ATI was blaming the Asus BIOS. The consumer was stuck in the middle.

faulty gpu

Adam, Amazon
8 November 2010
  • Summary: Just so others know it's happened, there are faulty products out there. asus released a bad batch of gpu laptops and never recalled them. about 1 in 7 won't work. and after 10 mins give you a random color screen of death. If you're looking into buying this, look around first and do some research. 1700 for a risk of a faulty computer, so not worth it. Save yourself a headache. Amazon however was great.

Terrible, see update

Austin, Amazon
10 September 2010
  • Summary: Pros: + Very powerful machine, especially considering its low price + Looks like Batman's computer (from the new, "gritty" remakes) + Huge screen, very pretty + Neat backlit keyboard + Comes with a backpack, which is good because no other backpack/case is capable of containing this massive beast Cons: - Comes with tons of bloatware, and no documentation to be able to tell which few are useful (hint: the "ATK package" is what makes your keyboard light up) - Awful...

Overheating Issues

L. olsen, Amazon
27 August 2010
  • Summary: I have owned this laptop for 1 year where before that I purchased used on craigslist. I am not computer illterate here is my troubleshooting and conclusion: computer will freeze randomly seemingly with whatever was on the screen, sound will loop for whatever was coming out of computer. only way to restore is through a hard reset. speedfan states everything but the HD is consistently hot so I redo the thermal paste on both GPU and CPU.
