ASUS - flashy look, but if it has problems, forget about your warranty or competent tech support

Peter, Amazon
8 October 2014
  • Summary: Bottom line, I can't recommend anyone buy this product - in fact, I'm recommending against purchase of any ASUS computer. Here's why. I purchased the Zenbook earlier this year, and I was initially very pleased with the features, the weight, and the performance. Then, the problems started and ASUS tech support and warranty repair turned out to be a hollow shell.

  • Summary: The screen change brightness on its own. It halted when I updated Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. I paid $70 to return it with insurance. It wasted my time to test it and reported the bugs.

Unreliable for business - stay away

Robert A Moore, Amazon
24 September 2014
  • Summary: After spending a full day configuring this computer with work applications and accounts, I plugged it into my external monitor and keyboard. Very slick. I was looking forward to taking it on a business trip next week (three different cities in two days) where I would be using the computer to plug into different projectors in board rooms to do presentations. After powering off the computer and disconnecting, I took it home.

I don't think a laptop that was roughly $2200 should have as many issues like this (especially straight out of the box) and not

  • Summary: Came in with display glitches literately the moment I turned it on. After updating all the drivers and OS the issue still occurs. ASUS customer service refuses to answer my email that I sent in almost a week ago. Over all I had a very frustrating time with this product. When the display has pixel lines that slashes across it, it won't accept any of my keystrokes.

After 1 year, it's in the GARBAGE

TheBurgh, B&H Photo
28 August 2014
  • Excerpt: The A/C connection and charger are fragile, the screws underneath in front of track pad fell out. Considering this ultrabook is about the price of a macbook pro, it's poorly built in comparison. The A/C line connection point is incredibly weak and fragile. I never even travelled with this notebook. Not even 3 months old I had to send it back to asus for its a/c adaptor. About 1 year and 3 days old, it's in the garbage.
  • Cons: Freezes Up, Slow, Too Hot

Avoid like a Plague. RMA twice within 14 days of usage.

MENG C HSIEH, Amazon
18 August 2014
  • Summary: I had to RMA this hunk of junk twice to ASUS for the same problem within 14 days of usage. The laptop simply refuses to power on after 7 days of heavy usage - I define heavy usage as running the computer for at least 20 hours a day for 7 days. I RMA the first time and expect it to be fixed. Nope. Ran for 7 days flawlessly again then laptop refuses to power on. This is my 2nd RMA and Asus refuses to send me a new unit.

Hardware and software issues make a gem on paper to a lemon in reality

Iddo Dror, Amazon
26 July 2014
  • Summary: I spent weeks researching a lightweight, high-performance laptop with 512GB SSD. The Asus Zenbook UX301 was (on paper) well ahead of the pack for me, and I was very excited to get it. However, my unit turned out to be a lemon, with both hardware issues (there was a lose screw moving around the unit) and software issues (the computer would restart on its own several times a day (not related to windows update etc.

Major HD problem

SJ, Amazon
24 July 2014
  • Summary: Only after 3 months this laptop fried the hard drive multiple times. As I found out it is very typical of ASUS laptops, I am staying away from ASUS for now.
