DO NOT BUY THIS LAPTOP, It's now a brick. SSD failing, warped chassis from overheating (forced shutdowns), blue screens.

ASUS SSDs and batteries never hold up

Sujeet A., Newegg
11 February 2016
  • Pros: Form, peripherals, and display are fantastic.
  • Cons: 8 hour battery? Turn off the radio, dim the screen to the lowest setting and hope for 5 hours if you're lucky. One of the 2 SSDs failed shy of 2 years. The warranty is only 1 year, but since when did it become OK to expect your data to not last two years?!

Died 3 times, performs worse than $500 computer

Arthur D. Schiff, Amazon
22 December 2015
  • Summary: This computer has failed (read: died) TWICE and been sent in for repair. It has now died a THIRD time. I use it lightly, only on vacation, and keep it its case, in good condition, etc. It's arguably almost 'brand new.' In addition, it's a very slow computer for a $2000+ machine.

Not happy with ASUS battery quality - otherwise good laptop

Sumeet Tank, Amazon
27 October 2015
  • Summary: I bought this in July 2014 and @ $ 1800+ you expect the item to last a while but the pleasure was short-lived Within about 9 months the battery started to act up and the autonomy dropped from about 4 hours to less then 2 hours Just over 15 months now and the laptop gives me less than 45 minutes of...

It is a bit overpriced and the graphics are not as good as I expected

  • Summary: the ux301 is a really fast laptop. It is a bit overpriced and the graphics are not as good as I expected. I know it is not a gaming computer but I didnt think I would have to run the lowest settings on my favorite online MMO just to get a non choppy display.

Raymond Ko, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this laptop more than a year ago. After only a few months of use, it can't boot and diagnosed to have a broken hard drive. I sent it back for repairment. They replaced the hard drive for free since it is still within warranty.

Shameful is the only word that comes to mind for Asus and this machine: $1800 and less than 2 years of use.

J. Karcher, Amazon
19 September 2015
  • Summary: I waited for this computer to be released for the better part of 2 years, and I did a lot of justifying to pay a price like that. I am normally very cautious when the Better Business Bureau has given a company a poor rating, but I had read Asus had made improvements so I did further justifying...

John C., Amazon
