Summary: I had read that the JX model had hard drives running at the slower rate of 5900 rpm but after running Belarc advisor I can confirm it has 2 x 500gb Travelstar Z7K500 7200 rpm 2.5-inch hard drive from Hitachi. The windows experience score is mid 7s apart from the hard drives that pull it down to 5.9. An upgrade to an SSD takes only a few minutes there is lots of stuff on Youtube that shows you how. Great laptop.
Summary: I purchased this item as not only a replacement for my ever so slightly aging desktop machine, but also as a portable gaming centre to be connected to my LED living room TV. There were absolutely no issues with running any games on maximum settings via this laptop. It honestly ticks absolutely all of the boxes you could want in a portable gaming machine, it is quiet, has excellent screen quality and sound, and an extremely responsive and comfortable keyboard, combined...
Summary: Performance is very good even without ssd it's fast. Fells solid food quality. Needs adjusted in settings to your liking. Make sure and uninstall nvidia sound drivers as they interfere with realtek drivers provided by asus overall brilliant apart from Windows 8.1 upgrade which is very buggy with drivers and causes havoc with games.
Pros: Top Build Quality, Great Power & Spec, Heavy and therefore not very portable
Summary: This laptop is absolutely brilliant. The spec is actually higher than quoted by ISME you will actually receive the laptop with an Intel I7 4700HQ, Nvidia GTX770M and 1TB 7200RPM HDD configured with 2 x 500GB drives. The build quality and design is flawless and the HD screen produces great quality images.
Pros: Can Play Battlefield 4, Doesn't Heat Up That Much, Good spec, Quiet, Perofrms Poor On Battery
Summary: I bought this laptop on the strength of various expert reviews I had researched on the net as well as comments on it from Very purchasers and I have not been disappointed. I've been using it for about a week now and have yet to find something I don't like. Even Windows 8 is easy to use after a couple of days and I now prefer this operating system to the Windows 7 I had been using previously.
Summary: Overall i am extremely happy with my purchase. Although costing alot of money, it will play any game i throw at it on max settings (exclusing AA+MSAA which dont make any difference on a screen this size anyways). All games ive played so far on max settings include Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Deus Ex Human Revolution, Diablo 3, Assassins Creed III All of which have maintained a butter smooth 60fps at the screens native 1080p. The design of the laptop, is to me, beautiful.
Pros: Quality Screen, great sound, decent graphic card, Heavy, short battery life
Summary: This is a great gaming laptop, it has a real HD screen, excellent sound quality. I've tested it and it played Skyrim with high settings and the HD texture pack with ease. It meets the minimum requirements for the likes of Battlefield 4 and Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag but not quite the recommended one's With such a lot going on 'under the hood' the battery life isn't great.
Pros: Good for gaming, Watch Blu Rays Movies, Powerful, Wrong Specs Advertise
Summary: Good gaming laptop but wrong specs advertise for example it comes with 2x 500GB SATA hard drives not 1.5TB as stated at the top of the page but it comes with a better processor which is an Intel��Core��� i7-4700HQ not the Intel��Core��� i7-3630QM��
