Asus ROG G501JW Laptop Review

 

Overclockers UK has exclusive dibs on a one-off consignment of 168 Asus Republic Of Gamers G501JW la Overclockers UK has exclusive dibs on a one-off consignment of 168 Asus Republic Of Gamers G501JW laptops. These are thin and light 15.6-inch models...

Gorgeous aluminium styling.

High price.

This thin and light laptop looks gorgeous but considering the price we feel it is a little underspecified.

Asus G501JW (FHD) Notebook Review

 

Slim gamer. Recently, we reviewed Asus' new member of the ROG series, the high-end US model. Our current model for the German market is about 600 Euros (~$672) cheaper but makes compromises in features. Nevertheless, it even performs partly better than...

very good display, good system performance, attractive design, Thunderbolt port

poor battery life, high consumption while idle, our test model had problems under load, gaming performance falls short of expectations of a GTX 960M

Our test model costs about an equivalent of 600 Euros (~$672) less than the already reviewed Asus G501JW. Although the Full HD display has a lower resolution than the QHD display in the other model, better brightness, brightness distribution and...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

I love everything about this laptop that works properly

 

The battery life is seriously something like 7 hours. The computer can run any game well that isn't Witcher 3 (which is a beast). It's exactly what I've wanted in a laptop with the exception of the cons

Screen flickering. This needs to get figured out by Asus. Six weeks into ownership I RMA'd the computer due to the right control key coming off the keyboard (which is now fixed) and the screen flicker that has been much talked about. I got the computer...

Rushing to market was a huge mistake, my company buys several hundred laptops a year and till now they are mostly ASUS and I'm disappointed. I hope Windows 10 brings this laptop to life, if not it will end up on the wall of shame at our company.

Doesn't feel cheap, fast, the SSD is great. The screen is truly incredible

Scaling is mediocre, youtube videos skips and are horrible to watch. Yes I have updated all the drivers, and yes all microsoft updates are up to date. I feel Asus has let me down by letting a laptop that isn't ready for general use out of the market ;...

ASUS G501JW-DS71

 

I've had the most stable / best results with this device using the factory default drivers for both intel and nvidia downloaded from ASUS support and not updating those drivers to anything that Asus doesn't release. This seems to have fixed most issues...

Fast boot, generally fast operation

Highly evident flicker Seems to appear and disappear randomly and is stronger and weaker at times (though the RF fields surrounding it remain unchaged). Several customers have complained about this and have been given a generic RF interference...
