    This review is from: ASUS N55SF-DH71 Full HD 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)

    Overall I have to say that this is one of the best laptops I have ever seen. It is as good, if not better than the Alienware m14x. The 1920×1080 resolution looks awesome and the battery lasts around 4 hours when using the internet in a power saving mode. Not bad considering that there is an i7 in this thing. The included subwoofer is not really that good though, it sounds really muffled so I just use my Logitech Z-4 speakers and they sound great. The touchpad works great but it is a little big and close to the keyboard so when I type I sometimes move the cursor but I have not yet clicked anything so it doesn’t deserve 1 less star.

    I have played some games on here like Company of Heroes and World of Warcraft and they work very well on medium to high settings. I play around the medium settings because I’d rather have it look a little worse with no skipping than looking great with skipping. The sound is superb, it is as good as Asus makes it out to be but of course you will find better when you buy stand alone speakers. If some of you are worrying about the keyboard layout, I say it’s as good as any keyboard is going to get for a laptop. It works very well and I have not even missed a key yet so if you want a good keyboard that doesn’t mess you up then choose this laptop.

    With the battery life for this spec of a laptop, the great keyboard, the power for games, I have to say that this is a great multimedia gaming computer. The Blu-Ray drive does play Blu-Rays but you still have to purchase software to actually play the Blu-Rays. I just got PowerDVD 11 and used the HDMI output onto my LED TV and it looks just awesome. The USB 3.0 slots and power port are on the left side which is a good thing since I put my mouse on the right. The ethernet port is also on the left side. Would I recommend this? Of course, I was able to get it for $1200 here on amazon along with a $75 amazon gift card.

    I will update this when I install my new 512gb SSD tomorrow. I will confirm if this computer supports Sata iii or not. It should support it…

    **UPDATE**
    Man oh man is this computer fast with the SSD. From turning on the laptop to opening files or running games, everything loads fast and quiet. I was able to do some hard drive tests and I was constantly able to get 440 MB/s for the read so I would say that this laptop does support Sata iii. The SSD I have installed Crucial M4 CT512M4SSD2. The Windows score for the hard drive is 7.9.

    I’m going to keep this review short as most of the high points of the laptop have already been discussed.

    Pro’s:

    -Sound and picture are excellent
    -Battery life is great considering it’s a larger laptop
    -weight of the laptop is light considering its size
    -start up is quick
    -no lag when running hefty programs

    Con’s:
    -no backlight on the keyboard
    -the eject button for the cd/dvd/br tray is not well-designed. Found it difficult to quickly open.
    -no eject button on the keyboard for disc tray. If there is one, can someone tell me where?
    -mousepad is large and close to keyboard, causing accidental movement on the mouse while typing

    This review is from: ASUS N55SF-DH71 Full HD 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)

    While I’ve used ASUS components before, this is my first time buying an ASUS laptop and so I was a little concerned that I might wind up regretting this purchase. But after two weeks of use, I can say that this laptop, while not perfect, has exceeded all of my expectations.

    I know that this is advertised as being a “great-sounding laptop,” but I was blown away by the sound quality. Trust me when I say that you have NEVER heard built-in laptop speakers like these. Sure, the external sub-woofer is a little awkward (and the cable for it is way too short), but the sound quality is so good that I now use my laptop instead of my Bose SoundDock for listening to music. I’m not necessarily saying it sounds better than the SoundDock, but it sounds good enough that the increased controls and overall flexibility that come with listening to music on a laptop (as opposed to listening through an iPod) make it a superior listening experience, in my opinion.

    PROs: AMAZING sound; great components for the price; super fast — plays all the latest games; beautiful anti-glare screen; 2-year warranty with 1-year accident protection; aesthetically appealing; great typing experience.

    CONs: Cable for sub-woofer is too short; AC adapter is bigger than average; touch pad can be erratic at times; weight and battery life not ideal for the frequent traveler; would have been nice if it came with a remote; keyboard is not back-lit.
