Great laptop, but seller needs to fix these issues before sending

  • Summary: When I got the package, it came with everything as they stated which I was quite ecstatic about getting this upgrade from my 2010 Asus G73SW. Computer performs great and its GPU can basically handle whatever I throw at it, which is great. Combine that with its ultra portability, light weight, and surprisingly long battery life for a gaming rig, you get what you pay for.

A product with good performance but still has a long way to go...

QING WANG, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this laptop in June 2014 and after half year of using I conclude some pros and cons: Pros: Good looking out shape, light weight compared to its screen size. GTX860M is good enough for this model due to the limited cooling capacity. Color backlight for keyboard is pretty cool. Cons: Touchpad has a poor performance which is hard to use. FAN is the achilles heel for this product: When fully loaded the noise goes loud.

Not Bad

  • Summary: Very good specs for the price. Overall a good buy, but there are definitely sacrifices to get there. The chassis isn't as sturdy as some brands and flexes a little bit. One of my rubber feet fell off already after only a few months of normal use. Also, the trackpad is literally the worst thing I have ever used. It also seems to have trouble processing certain types of things... for example websites with lots of gifs, or mass copying in SketchUp.

Good but far from great

Gyro, Amazon

  • Summary: It's difficult to fairly rate this laptop. It will be my desktop replacement for the foreseeable future as I don't want to bring my desktop to college. It is a very significant downgrade from my desktop and I've always hated laptops, so unfortunately I feel like I am already biased against it. Starting off with the good, the keyboard feel is very nice.

  • Summary: While I play Diablo 3 Expansion with full setting it start flickering. I had to lower to resolution to 1600x900 and it went better however sometimes it flickers once a while. Not sure if it's the heating issue or its driver issue.

Not too good as I expected

Felipe Bendek, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: Im not sure if i made the right decision, between the razer blade pro and the GS70, there is more disk space and is lighter, but the materials are and look cheap for this price range. Windows 8 chrashes a lot, and there is a lot of unuseful software previously installed (would be great to have an option yes/no software when you buy) laptop screen is not soo good for the size and color compared to my previous sony vaio z or macbook pro.

Watch out!

  • Summary: Read along and you'll know why I've given this a 3 star rating. This item arrived about 4 days ago I believe. I couldn't be happier to have it. Installed a few games on it and it was immaculate; brilliant speed, graphics and absolutely no lag. However, yesterday morning I tried to power it on. It did power on but the screen wasn't displaying anything . The backlight was functioning so I thought it isn't an LCD problem. I went on the internet and searched for hours.

  • Excerpt: Модель GS70 2OD(Stealth)-297RU
  • Pros: Все достоинства описаны в других отзывах, не вижу смысла перечислять заново. Машинка бодрая.
  • Cons: Недостатки выявленные в ходе эксплуатации: 1) Самый первый, и самый большой недостаток, который я обнаружил почти сразу - качество HDD. Компьютер подвисал на 2-3 секунды с завидной регулярностью, при этом ему было абсолютно все равно, играешь ты в какую-нибудь навороченную игру или печатаешь-ли в ворде. Порыскав в сети, обнаружил, что данная проблема не является уникальной. Проблема заключается в парковке головок HDD диска (т.е. подвергались подвисанию все программы и...

  • Excerpt: Модель без SSD с windows 8 жутко тормозит (при включении через секунд 25 появляется рабочий стол и где-то секунд 30 требуется всему другому софту для загрузки), очень пожалел что не доплатил за версию с SSD. В первый же день воткнул в него SD карту и получил облом, она не читалась, провозился часа три с установкой драйвера для встроенного картридера, и на настройку windows 8 потратил часов 8, за 50+ т.р. я не ожидал такого количества проблем.
  • Pros: Мощный, без дисковода, тонкий, игры летают на средних настройках, если смотреть на нем кино батарею держит 3-4 часа.
  • Cons: Экран расстроил, сильные засветы по краям. Тачпад неудобный, сразу взял мышь. Диодные индикаторы слишком яркие, если оставить на ночь в спящем режиме, будет слепить. Кнопка включения недоступна в закрытом состоянии, что неудобно при использовании внешнего монитора. Для владельцев экшен камер Gopro, сообщаю Gopro studio 2.0.1 у меня глючит.
