Asus N55SF-S2276V review

 

The protractedly named Asus N55SF-S2276V falls very much from the desktop replacement mould. It's a fully featured 15.6in laptop with discrete graphics and Blu-ray drive.

f you are looking for an entertainment-focused laptop for less than £800, you could do a lot worse than the chunky Asus N55SF-S2276V. An impressive list of specifications is rounded off with strong performance and a very usable screen. Sound quality is...

Asus N55sf review

 

Previous Asus N-series laptops have tried to raise the bar for sound quality, but this latest version comes closer than ever before – as well as a set of Bang & Olufsen speakers, the N55 has its own external subwoofer for improved bass.

Asus N55S review

 

Quad-core power, fast Nvidia graphics and Bang & Olufsen speakers, and all for a very good price

The keyboard and battery are weak points then, and you could say the Asus lacks the visual allure to tug at the purse strings like pricier, metal-bodied models can. But that’s before you see the price – at £735 inc VAT, the N55S tramples all over the...

ASUS DSL-N55U N600 wireless router

 

This ASUS router is quick, reliable and has plenty of great storage and remote access features

Good interface ; Reliable storage features ; Excellent FTP feature ; Good phone app

Installation of apps was a little fiddly ; Latest firmware wasn't found by the router automatically

The ASUS DSL-N55U is a solid modem-router that offers dual-band Wi-Fi and excellent storage features. It has a well designed interface and it's a swift performer overall. We experienced a few frustrations with the installation of some of its apps, but...

Asus N55SF Review: Bright, Fast, and Booming

 

While the Asus N55SF may not be the speediest desktop replacement laptop that PCWorld has ever tested, it's still darn fast. It also offers good gaming frame rates, and delivers considerably better-than-average sound and video. At only $1249 (as of...

Good all-around performance, including on games ; Better-than-average screen and sound

On the pricey side ; Middling battery life

Excellent performance and multimedia features make this desktop replacement a nearly perfect dorm room companion.

Asus N55SF-A1

 

The Asus N55SF-A1, a desktop replacement laptop, belts out some sweet sounds and outperforms most of its peers in speed and gaming tests.

Sweet sounds from its Bang & Olufsen ICEpower speakers. Quad-core processor. Top-notch Nvidia gaming chip. Awesome screen resolution. Two USB 3.0 ports. Great typing experience.

Thick and chunky. Mouse buttons are stiff. Subwoofer is an external attachment.

Matte screen, Full HD resolution, Good sound, 2 USB 3.0 ports, Music Now, The good Full HD screen and the good sound will excite multimedia fans

ASUS N55S Review: Great Multimedia Laptop With Some Issues

 

This multimedia powerhouse has a full HD display, Blu-ray writer, Bang & Olufsen speakers, plus a 2GB Nvidia graphics card for playing the latest games.

Excellent anti-glare full HD screen ; Great performance ; Decent speakers

Strange keyboard ; Loud touchpad buttons ; At $1,199 the N55S is an attractive multimedia notebook with solid specifications. That said, the keyboard and touchpad could be better.
