Pros: I bought this ASUS laptop from newegg in 2013. It's been working well since day 1. My boy uses it to play online games and homework, and we used it for our work and occasional video streaming. We also install Linux on this to make it double bootable. It's been two years of ownership and have been...
Cons: There is no DVD drive but we knew about it before the purchase. I have an external DVD drive for this.
Summary: This laptop is excellent for heavy use, and is the best for the price that I found it for. Are you a gamer, a professional programmer, or a designer? Do you need a computer that needs to last from years on end? Then this is the laptop that you are looking for.
Summary: I bought the ASUS S400CA-DB51T for my daughter one and half years ago. She brought it to summer camp and came back with the weird circle in the middle of LCD, looks like water/hue. I always though it is water damage caused by my daughter so I did not use the warranty.
Summary: I personally have issues with the wifi. It connects well of course and will go long periods without issue, but occasionally, the wifi signal will somehow become limited and i have no idea why.
Summary: I support several small companies and do all of the hardware/software specification, purchasing, and configuration for them. Lately have been buying Asus as they seem to offer exceptional value. Had success with them for about two years and so got this one for my niece to take to college.
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: Problematic Audio from Day One (chronic problem per complaints all over Internet) Died in under six months Asus would not honor warranty and instead wanted more for a repair than the unit costs new.
Summary: This is by FAR the worst computer if not the worst computing device I've ever touched. It's slow. It's buggy. The interface is clumsy and tortuous. It crashes programs. I've never had to send a computer back to the manufacturer for repairs before...that is, until I owned this ASUS.
Summary: Terrible quality screen if you're ever going to take it on a plane. Get large oily-like amoeba spot in between layers after flying. See http://youtu.be/uIYagw70k1A. Clearly a design defect, but Asus support is noooooooo help.
Cons: the new laptop shows "no battery is detected". After charging the battery for 4 hours, the problem remains. I do not understand why this hapened. Did ASUS and newegg sell it without checking? So I have to send the new laptop to ASUS service center for repair. Next time I will buy a laptop from a ...
