Summary: I use to love the brand name Asus; however, after receiving this laptop... I definitely dislike it with a passion. Barely bought a few months back and i'm already having so many problems. It gets really hot because of the fan and makes so much noise. It shuts off by itself sometimes. The screen flickers on and off for some odd reason.. Should I go on? I mean I still like some of Asus's products, but this one was not what I had expected at all.
Summary: I am a tinkerer with a computer science degree -- so know how to get around tech issues. Bought this for someone who is not extremely tech-savvy because of the mix of features (touch screen, fast bootup promise, windows experience). This machine has given nothing but problems since the day it arrived. Was extremely slow out of the box. Did not connect to wireless network. Used windows store to upgrade to 8.1 and started working....very slowly.
Summary: Laptop did not work when I received it. Black screen, wouldn't turn on at all. Very disappointed as I was really looking forward to this delivery and was very excited about my much researched purchase. Amazon worked with me and did a great job on the return though.
Summary: I should have just bought a chromebook. This is an overpriced machine. Further, it is delivered with a bunch of needless software that slows everything down. Finally, I get booted off the internet every time I use this machine. EVERY TIME! It is too expensive for what you get.
Summary: At 3 months of use, the machine faults present on the screen, putting white at any moment. The send a warranty, which was delayed 8 days, and given the severity of the problems, I did not get a new laptop, I just changed the components, which were I think the screen and some defective chips..
Summary: I used to love my laptop in the beginning and now a few months later it gives me nothing but problems.. I had to send it into ASUS tech support 4 times already. Touchscreen will stop working, I would get booted of the internet when all other devices would be running fine. The laptop will crash at unexpected times with no warning.. Definitely wasn't worth the $600+ that I spent.
Summary: First of all, sorry for my English, it's not my mother language. On October 31, 2013, I bought an Asus VivoBook S500CA in Adorama Store, NY, during my vacation. Back to my hometown, in Brazil, after few months of use, some problems: instability with wireless system, unexpected shutdown, loss of performance, noise in sound system, damaged touchpad. On January 14, I made my first contact with Asus Customer Service.
Summary: A month ago I bought a Asus S500 because I have heard they are good quality ... however, 2 days and was using the adapter exploded damaging the computer, so I can say that now I have just a little technology makes useless in my hands. I've been buying in this way without any problems, and it is outrageous that now I have this problem in supporting my country, Amazon did not answer calls, much less answered my messages, I always thought was a reputable company over 4...
Summary: I am so upset with this $600 purchase. Windows 8 is just straight awful. Asus restarts the computer daily and you can't get out of it, it is completely disruptive and takes forever. Video playback is poor. I find the keyboard frustrating, the touch screen aggravating due to the set up. I could just go on and on. I work at home on the computer constantly so I'm not one to just complain about what I don't know.
