Beware of ASUS laptops!

Andrew A., Newegg
25 February 2014
  • Summary: ASUS warranty has been unbelievably difficult to work with. They wanted me to send back all 240 laptops to have them service the keyboard. They would "fix" the ones I sent back and then they had the exact same problem. If I send the keyboard back to be fixed - you think they would push the key after "repairing" it - but no they send it back still broken.
  • Pros: Only Pro is it is light.
  • Cons: These were bought by a previous technology director of the school I work at. He bought about 250 of these laptops spending well over $100,000 on them. They are complete junk.

Left standing holding the bag

sassyinminnesota, Ebay
17 December 2013
  • Summary: I ordered the ASUS S56CA 15.6" (500 GB, Intel Core i3 3rd Gen., 1.8 GHz, 4 GB) Ultrabook - Black - S56CA-WH31. It arrived at my home DOA. What else can I say after that? I returned it, along with everything else I purchased to go with it that same day. So after a lot of expenses I had NOTHING that I could actually use and I had to return everything so I could at least get most of my money back, Wonderful experience? Nope! I sure don't think so.

Worst laptop ever

Dr. V, FutureShop

  • Summary: I cannot describe how much I hate this laptop. Ive owned it for 4 months. Flimsy chassis, intermittent keys sticking, overly sensitive touch-pad...on and on. Do not buy an Asus! I was told they were a better brand but not the case.

Windows 8 is terrible

D. Owen "DougParis", Amazon
28 December 2012
  • Summary: I can't blame the machine itself but the fact that it came with Windows 8 means this gets a 1-star rating. Windows 8 is positively awful.
