ASUS N550JV Laptop Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The ASUS N550JV packs a quad core i7, 8GB RAM, Geforce graphics and a Blu Ray drive for under £1,000, but is it good enough to be your desktop replacement?

Powerful day to day performance ; Plays games surprisingly well ; Blu-Ray Drive included ; Excellent Audio

Slightly iffy buttons on the touchpad ; Battery life could be stronger ; No solid state drive

A desktop replacement that runs games well for under a grand?

Viewing angles are good - there’s very little distortion when you deviate from a head on angle as is the case with some screens, and in fact you can still see text clearly from angles long after it would be impractical to work with. The brightness is...

Asus N550JV laptop review

 

Asus laptops have come a long way since the Eee PC series, which effectively pioneered the netbook category in 2007. Emboldened by that success, Asus subsequently pitched into the mainstream Microsoft mêlée where it is now just another maker of...

The Asus N550JV is a high-performance midrange laptop, blighted by an abominable touchscreen display and tortoise hard disk. If you care about sound quality, the B&O-branded sound system is not a reason to seek out this laptop. But the N550JV plays...

Asus N550JV-DB72T

 

Watching movies on a tablet is well and good, but to get real immersive entertainment, a 15.6-inch laptop with multiple speakers like the Asus N550JV-DB72T is the portable equivalent of a home theater system, plus it also qualifies as a power user system.

Asus N550JV-DB72T

 

Watching movies on a tablet is well and good, but to get real immersive entertainment, a 15.6-inch laptop with multiple speakers like the Asus N550JV-DB72T is the portable equivalent of a home theater system, wrapped in the body of a power user laptop.

Class-leading performance. Multimedia-oriented features. 1080p HD IPS screen. Subwoofer included. Multi-speaker sound. Fast wake from sleep. HDMI and mini-DisplayPort. Touch screen.

Heavy. No 5GHz Wi-Fi support. No Blu-ray. Short battery life. Narrow numeric keys.

The Asus N550JV-DB72T is one of the best desktop replacement laptops we've seen in PC Labs in a while. It's equally at home consuming or creating media, and it's a great choice for the demanding power user. Its 1080p HD screen, benchmark performance,...

matte, contrast-rich IPS screen (Full HD); Big storage capacity; attractive case; backlit keyboard; high-end sound output; mini DisplayPort

Asus N550JV Review

 

So did I make a good choice by getting the Asus N550JV? Probably. Should you get one? That depends. The Asus N550JV spoils you with a lot of high-end elements – from the beautiful 1080p display and the metal construction to the audio experience and the...

Well-balanced design for a 15-inch laptop, Brilliant-looking 1080p touch display, Finger-friendly keyboard includes full numeric keypad

Battery lasts just 4 hours and change, Aluminum chassis is susceptible to scratches, Audio can sound distorted despite booming quad-speaker array

After using the N550JV for multimedia-intensive tasks as well as everyday ones, in fact, we'd call it a 15.6-inch laptop that packs the punch of a 17-inch model, but is (despite its weight) almost as easy to carry with you as a 14-inch model. That's a...

Asus N550JV-DB72T Review and Ratings

 

The Asus N550JV-DB72T strikes an impressive balance, delivering an entertainment laptop with attractive design, good performance, and a gorgeous display—all at a reasonable price. We just wish its battery lasted longer.

Well-balanced design for a 15-inch laptop ; Brilliant-looking 1080p touch display ; Finger-friendly keyboard includes full numeric keypad

Battery lasts just 4 hours and change ; Aluminum chassis is susceptible to scratches ; Audio can sound distorted despite booming quad-speaker array

The one part of the Asus' performance that disappointed us was its battery life—about four hours in our admittedly tough video-playback test. This is much better than the paltry two and a third hours of the Lenovo Y510p, but well shy of the Acer's and...

Asus N550JV

 

Would be nice if the much vaunted keyboard worked all the time, instead of sporadically. I did find the touchscreen keyboard useful when writing an email about the non-working keys to Asus.

Asus tech help weren't much use. Gave me a generic software fix for a hardware problem. Looking on the web now seems this is a hardware fault caused by a sloppily built system. Don't believe the hype about built quality, it's simply not true.
