    Great laptop….but!!!!….SEE UPDATE!, June 14, 2012

    This review is from: ASUS G75VW-DS72 17.3-Inch Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)

    I received this laptop yesterday and was drooling to get it out of the box and fired up. I was immediately impressed with the looks and feel of this machine. I got the battery loaded, plugged it in and turned it on. I then went through all the new startup menus and got to my desktop, so far so good as I was loving everything about it. Then, once I started playing with all the cool programs preloaded by ASUS, the trouble started. I kept getting a screen blanking and message saying that my video driver recovered from a failure or something along those lines. So, I thought, I probably need to update the drivers and all that normal new computer stuff. Once I got to NVIDIA’s web site, I come to learn that the graphics card in this machine doesn’t have any drivers out for it yet!!! HUH? Yep, NVIDIA put out the GTX 670M graphics card with no extablished drivers for it. After reading the forums, there is still no date given for when the drivers will be available. They have the drivers for the Linux OS but not for Win 7/XP. So, those of you that are wanting a “turnkey” system right out of the box will be dissapointed as I was to discover that you will have to wait an undetermined amount of time for drivers to support the card in this laptop. As it sits now, can’t even play the current games on the lowest video settings without screen blanking and even blue-screen/system restarts. I’m sure that once the drivers are out, this system will be a gamer’s dream but till then…….I’m keeping my finger’s crossed.

    UPDATE: Today is 6/28/2012 and I just got my laptop back from ASUS after sending it to them on the 19th. IT IS A FREAKING BEAST !!!!. They replaced the GPU in the system as the original one was obviously bad. Now it is running great with none of the issues I was having before with the screen blanking and driver recovery popup notices. I have only run the Windows Experience Index so far as I haven’t downloaded a benchmark tool yet but it gave me 7.4′s on both of the graphics tests where before it was only giving me 1.0′s. I’m currently installing SWTOR on here and am excited to see how the game plays on maxed settings. So far everything about this system now seems to be exactly as I had hoped it would be when I ordered it. I now can only hope that the ssue I had with the GPU was a limited fluke in just a few of those cards and the rest of the machines out there are just fine. I’ll post a new update once I’ve run some different games with maxed setting and let you games know how it performs….but so far it looks like it will be just as all the other reviews are that you can find on YouTube for this system.

    This review is from: ASUS G75VW-DS72 17.3-Inch Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)

    I got this to replace a Dell…yeah, I’ve had enough of them.

    First let me say…WOW!

    That SSD makes this thing rock! This is my first SSD system, so I am perhaps unduly impressed, but hey, I AM impressed. I’m not sure why both drives are partitioned in halves, and that is a tad annoying, but it isn’t the end of the world.

    The keyboard is splendid. It’s going to take a little getting used to, as all laptop keyboards do, but I’ve suffered through far, far worse than this. The spacing between the keys helps prevent hitting two keys at once, and the keys are where they’re supposed to be. The feel is fairly typical of modern keyboards…unfortunately…but better than most of them. The only thing better than this would be an old-school clicky keyboard of IBM legend. It is WAY better than Dell, Emachines, Lenovo, Fujitsu, Gigabyte, and any other laptop I’ve used, and many of those were quite nice.

    The 10-key ain’t so hot. It works, and it beats the top row of the keyboard by a mile, but whoever designed it has no clue how to use 10-key by touch. There isn’t supposed to be an arrow key under the “1″. Nothing fatal here…I just have to make adjustments. It’s still fairly thrilling to have a 10-key on a laptop!

    The “end” key is a tad awkward, as it’s all the way to the right of the keyboard, above the 10-key, and next to the “home”, “page up” and “page” down.

    The lights are nice. I type by touch, so I really don’t need it, but it sure looks pretty, and isn’t annoying or distracting like the Dell, so I haven’t turned it off. It might help locating ‘board chow’ that’s sure to find its way in there.

    On the whole, the keyboard feels good, and that, to me, is the most important part of my computer use.

    This is a BIG laptop. It is only slightly bigger than my Dell, yet it holds two drives and a 10-key! I use it on a small platform just big enough for it, a mouse, and a mouse pad. It has two legs that keep it off my actual lap, so I can sit on the couch and do my work.

    I have yet to hear a fan or any noise out of this thing.

    The main cons I can list:

    The power cord attaches to the right side. Most folks use the mouse with their dominant hand. Most folks are right handed. Does this make sense?

    Same goes with the USB, HDMI, network, and VGA ports. On the right side, right where the right handed mouse moving goes. There could have been better judgement here.

    Also, the power cord is at a right angle, so if it gets tugged, extra helpings of stress are placed on the socket.

    The bloatware was minimal. I wiped McAffee, of course, MS Office 2010, because it stinks, and a couple other doodads. And Bing! Not the massive invasion of bloatware that usually comes with computers these days.

    The most annoying con isn’t with Asus, but with Micro$oft. When first starting up, you are REQUIRED to install and agree to the terms of service for Bing. Otherwise you can’t use Windows 7. That is chicken-doodoo. While you can uninstall this later, a company that feels the need to inflate their stats this way clearly knows their products are substandard. I haven’t had a problem with MS since I ditched Vista, but this brought back old, bad memories of how they like to do business.

    That’s it for the cons.

    I haven’t played games on it yet, nor movies or any entertainment type stuff, so I can’t vouch for all that…could also explain the lack of fan noise. My Dell, which was much less powerful, did alright in this area, so I anticipate no problems. Youtube videos actually play better, with no pausing or hickups. Don’t know about the sound issues. Haven’t had any myself, but I rarely have sound activated. With all the other stupid stuff I’ve put up with using other laptops, I’d dance for joy if I only had to put up with weird sound issues. As long as the mute function works, that is.

    Amazon, of course, came through splendidly. At first I was going to pay a little extra for a faster processor at another well known on-line vendor, however with tax it would have been 1/4 extra the price of this one. Fortunately Amazon has the ability, and the stones, to stand up to greedy politicians. Well Done!

    Shipping was uber-fast. Placed order Friday morning, laptop delivered safe and sound Saturday morning. With Amazon Prime I paid the very small, very reasonable fee for next day shipping, and the already fast shipping was even faster…roughly 26 hours from clicking the Order button to a ringing doorbell. Wow!

    This review is from: ASUS G75VW-DS72 17.3-Inch Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)

    I researched laptops for a month before I bought my ASUS G75VW-DS72. I’m a video shooter/editor and I was tired of the lags and skips on hi-def AVI files. I ordered the ASUS from Amazon and hoped for the best. I received it it the mail five days before I expected it.

    WOW did I do some awesome research. This laptop is SCREAMING FAST. My previous laptop was pretty fast, it rendered a 10 minute DV-AVI in about 20 minutes. My new ASUS renders the same 10 minute video in less than 2 minutes! POW!

    I won’t miss the bluescreen of death once a month that I’d come to expect with my previous model (VAIO). No disrespect, my VAIO was a real pal, a trooper that got me through MANY edits, but its newest reviews didn’t impress me.

    I am so happy with my new ASUS that I render movies I don’t even need…just to watch the progress bar fly to the right. This laptop was clearly designed for gamers, but it’s perfect for my video productions.

    I have found all pros and no cons with my new ASUS. There is much joy in my heart each time I lift the lid.
