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

  • Summary: I am throwing this piece of rubbish in the trash! a VERY expensive mistake (I moved overseas so am unable to access warranty). I have traveled to a few dozen countries with this laptop.

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.

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...

The most expensive mistake I've ever made.

John C., Amazon
13 August 2015

SSDs really do fail. Customer "Service" is a (bad) joke. Stay away.

JohnSmith, Amazon
4 April 2015
  • Summary: I've use the UX 301 (256gb SSD version) for almost a year now. In the meantime, it has gone once to Asus Warranty "Services" for SSD repair. One of the SSD failed and had to be replaced. It's a good laptop, but I definitely recommend to STAY AWAY.

Lemon.

Vivin, Amazon
25 January 2015
  • Summary: I bought this product based on its reviews. It's a nice laptop... when it works. I'm not sure if it's due to build quality or due to the incompetence of ASUS' customer service, but I ended up sending it back 3 times in less than a year for the same issue.

KERNAL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

Lawrence L, Amazon
30 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought an Asus UX301LA six months ago. Recently it began to blue-screen one or twice an hour with a KERNAL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. I believe the issue is related to power distribution and similar to what's documented here:...
