Asus Strix 15 GL502VS Gaming Laptop Review

 

Great performance ; Good display with G-Sync ; Outstanding build quality ; Reasonable price

Mediocre battery life ; Blue display tint ; Large grayscale inaccuracy

The Asus Strix GL502VS-DS71 offers the performance of the GTX 1070 and the robust build quality of the Strix chassis, all at a reasonable price of $1,700.

ASUS' ROG Strix GL502VS is a mid-range (and VR-ready) gaming laptop

 

The Strix is an excellent mid-range gaming laptop. It may not have a premium build, and it suffers from middling battery life, but it has more than enough power to handle any game you might care to throw at it. Even in virtual reality.

Fast and powerful ; Lightweight for its size ; VR ready

Disappointingbattery life ; Finicky trackpad ; Distractingbright orange accents

ASUS' Republic of Gamers brand has a strong pedigree for reasonably priced, powerful gaming laptops, and the GL502VS Strix is exactly that: a mid-range gaming rig that can handle just about anything you might throw at it, even virtual reality. Some...

The ASUS ROG Strix GL502VS Review: Mainstream GTX 1070 with G-SYNC

 

ASUS offers a wide assortment of gaming laptops under “Republic of Gamers”, or 'ROG', with models such as the G752 lineup, the liquid cooled models in the GX800 series, and a few models for those who need more gaming per dollar. Today we are looking at...

Despite the less than amazing chassis, the ASUS ROG Strix GL502VS does offer a competitive value for what is offered. The pricing is reasonable for a powerful gaming laptop, starting around $1275 for the GTX 1060 GL502VM with no SSD. The GTX 1070...

Asus ROG Strix GL502VS Notebook Review

 

Let the games begin. Asus sent us one of the first 15-inch notebooks with the extremely fast Pascal GPU GeForce GTX 1070. The informed reader expects big performance gains and is not disappointed. The manufacturer focuses on continuity for the other...

comprehensive and modern port selection ; pretty frugal for the performance ; excellent maintainability ; nice and well-built chassis ; very good 3D performance ; decent multimedia speakers ; generally good input devices ; high-contrast IPS display ;...

response times might be too slow for ambitious gamers ; creaking sounds from the rear of the chassis under pressure ; gliding capabilities of the touchpad not perfect ; no accessories despite the high price ; rather mediocre SSD performance ; only 2...

Asus' new ROG Strix GL502VS left a convincing impression in general. One main aspect is the enormous performance of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. Gamers that are not too noise-sensitive should be very happy with the device.We already mentioned in the...

Asus ROG Strix GL502VS Review Tim Schiesser

 

The Asus ROG Strix GL502VS sits towards the top end of the performance and price scale. It doesn't have any ludicrous dual-GPU setups inside, but its GeForce GTX 1070 discrete graphics chip offers better performance than your typical gaming laptop or...

GTX 1070 is perfect for 1080p gaming up to 120 FPS. 1080p 120Hz G-Sync display complements the GPU. Lightest 15.6-inch GTX 1070 laptop available. Attractive price.

Weak SSD performance. Disappointing keyboard. Plastic construction looks a bit cheap.

Asus ROG Strix GL502VS

 

The 15.6" Asus ROG Strix GL502 is a thin and light gaming laptop with the new NVIDIA Pascal generation GeForce GTX 1070 8GB DDR5 dedicated graphics. This is one of the more powerful 15.6" laptops on the market, which is particularly impressive since it...

Insanely powerful for a 5.5 lb. 15" gaming laptop. High quality components, good keyboard and display. NVIDIA GTX 1070 graphics

Battery life is short. Stereo speakers are anemic

For years we've had PC specialists--the desktop for really heavy work and the best gaming quality, the 15" jack of all trades home or work laptop with a screen big enough to see easily and a roomy keyboard, and the 13" Ultrabook (or convertible) for...
