Asus ROG STRIX GL553

 

Asus ROG STRIX GL553 review: This GTX 1050 laptop is the best we've seen so far, and comes in at under £900

Good performance ; Attractive design ; Quality screen

Mediocre battery life ; A little noisy ; So-so build quality

A great all-rounder of a gaming laptop.

Asus ROG Strix GL553VD-DS71 review

 

The Strix features an excellent display, rich stereo sound, and a handful of bizarre eccentricities.

Asus ROG Strix GL553VD (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050) Laptop Review

 

Pricey budget gamer. Budget gaming notebooks are becoming increasingly popular thanks to GPUs like the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050, and Asus has decided to throw their hat into the budget ring with the GL553VD. The notebook packs modest hardware into a...

excellent, tactile keyboard ; RGB blacklighting options ; solid and sturdy chassis ; good thermal design ; bright and color accurate matte IPS display ; easy maintenance ; easily upgradeable

expensive for its specs ; middling battery life ; incredibly slow hard drive speeds ; loud, annoying fan ; poor port placement ; mediocre speakers ; disappointing touchpad

The Asus GL553VD is a prince among paupers. While its graphics card is targeted at the budget-conscious, its price is not. The same hardware can be found in the MSI GL62M about $100-150 less. that price can be even lower if users are willing to forgo...

Asus Republic of Gamers Strix GL553VD-DS71 Review and Ratings

 

The GTX 1050 graphics in this Strix laptop tramples its previous-gen GeForce kin, and an RGB keyboard and IPS screen boost the appeal. But we need to see a lower price, given the performance falloff versus the GTX 1060.

Nice-quality IPS screen ; Includes USB Type-C port ; Relatively quiet cooling ; Zone-customizable RGB keyboard lighting

Expensive, given GeForce GTX 1050 graphics ; No SSD at this price ; Display lacks Nvidia G-Sync support ; Keyboard-layout quibbles

Consumer review (johnlewis.com)

Good but with some reservations

 

I am not into gaming at all but wanted a powerful laptop and in most respects it is just what I had hoped for as I do a lot of multitasking, edit photos, videos and music etc. However the screen display is a disappointment - the spec says it has a...

Best gaming laptop for the price

 

I did a lot of searching and this is the best gaming laptop for less than £1000. Mostly because it actually has a decent screen, 91%sRGB colourspace, 280nits brightness. Full review on notebookcheck. All of the other laptops in this price range may...

Asus GL553VD-FY047T

 

RGB Keyboard - Amazing! Very nice design and configured to go straight from the box.

Poor battery life - wish this was better. Played one game of Overwatch and the battery went from 100% to 12%
