Updated review "I got a bad one"

Thomas D., Newegg
21 January 2014
  • Summary: While Newegg ultimately did the right thing, I was disappointed with their RMA process.
  • Pros: I am reviewing my replacement after the first one came with a dent on the screen bezel and would not power up intermittently.
  • Cons: Run time is as others posted - about 3.5 hrs with normal load.

beautiful display

Luke G., Newegg
23 July 2013
  • Summary: If this laptop had the new Haswell processor it would be hands down a 5egg and extremely recommended.
  • Pros: Beautiful HiDPI display (retina) 2880x1620 with amazing viewing angles and deep true colors.
  • Cons: Not many, performs excellently in almost every facet. If I had to complain the first would be the price, very expensive... the second would be that the battery life is NOT 7hours as advertised. I would put it at around 3.5hrs during normal use, but in battery saver or lower screen brightness you can extend that upwards of 5 hours, but that is usually plenty of time between charges.

Great light laptop

Wendy S. Weingart, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this laptop in spite of some misgivings based on the negative comments of other writers. The guy who bashed Windows 8 was ridiculous (because his problems were with Windows 8, not this machine), but I was concerned about the edges mentioned by the other writer. After using the machine for two weeks, I have to say that I have no idea what he is talking about. I find it very comfortable to use.

Just short of Perfect

seek&find, Amazon
29 November 2012
  • Summary: Accessories included: * External subwoofer. * Mini VGA to VGA adaptor cable. * Micro USB to USB adaptor cable (not sure what this is for). * DVD with WIN8 drivers. Not very useful for a machine without a DVD drive. Bloatware: * McAfee. * Microsoft Office 10 Starter. * MS Store. Positives so far: * Beautiful design, fit and finish. * So light and thin. * Very little bloatware so flattening is really unnecessary. * Keyboard and screen are perfect.

An Almost Perfect Laptop

Will C., Amazon
19 November 2012
  • Summary: If you're someone who prefers Windows over OS X, then you've probably identified the Asus UX51VZ as a potential windows-competitor to the Apple Macbook Pro Retina. My wife has the MBPr, so I have had some experience with it. While Asus gets most things right, I think it falls a little bit short in the hardware department. But don't get me wrong, this is a great laptop.

UX51VZ(A)-CN035H (256GB SSD)

Amazon+, Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: Ich habe dieses Schmuckstück als Warehousedeal für 1200€ erstanden. Wir gewohnt war nicht einmal ein Kratzer zu finden, weshalb ca. 500€ Rabatt wirklich saftig sind. Meine Rezension bezieht auf den regulären Kaufpreis von +/- 1700€ und wird in der übersichtlichen Positiv/ Negativ/ Neutral Form gehalten: WICHTIGES VORAB: Nach dem Kauf unbedingt ein BIOS-Update durchführen, denn vermutlich ist von Werk aus die BIOS-Version 203 installiert, mit der aktuellen Version 204...

Überteuert - aber in jeder Hinsicht sehr gute Eigenschaften

J. Willecke, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: Nach ca. vierwöchiger Nutzungsdauer kann ich für dieses Gerät nur eine sehr gute Note geben: Ich habe noch nie ein Notebook mit derartiger Geschwindigkeit erlebt. Das Starten geht dank SSD sekundenschnell. Das schnelle Starten wird nur durch die Anmeldung beim Microsoft-Konto unterbrochen. Dies kann man, wie ich irgendwo gelesen habe, auch abstellen. Aber es sind wiederum nur wenige Sekunden bis der Arbeitsplatz (Kacheln Win 8) "steht". Win 8 ist geschmackssache.

Sehr gut mit kleinen Fehlern

chris p "chris169822", Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: Insgesamt bin ich sehr zufrieden! Der Laptop ist wirklich gut, hat allerdings ein paar macken die manchmal nervig sind. Ich habe ihn jetzt seit etwa einem Monat oder etwas mehr und beginne gerade ihn intensive zu testen. Festplatten platz ist kleiner als die zugesicherten 256GB, ich glaube auf OS C: hatte ich 76GB frei und auf D: etwa 119GB Das Raid0 System ist nicht wirklich ersichtlich, da per Werkseinstellung 2 Partitionen vorhanden waren.
