Best Buy Customer Reviews
Posted by: Bern from: on
Hey guy's let me start off by saying the Asus ROG G20 CB is an outstanding super fast piece off art work.
It's an Asus, I have built many PC's with Asus boards, love them.
Very fast even for a standard 7200 rpm hard drive.
Love the lighting.
Plays Call of duty advanced warfare and Dying light on extra and looks great doing it.
USB ports 2\ 2.0, 4\ 3.0 and 2\ 3.1, more than enough USB ports for anyone.
Small form , fits on any desk.
Sound system is fantastic, just set it up right.
Now for the bad.
Runs hot playing high end games, get a small cooler and place it in front so it blows air in the bottom of the PC, it sure does help.
Bios still needs a little work, has a few problems with WIFI run headphones, they cut out a lot but they will fix it.
You cant upgrade it without voiding your warranty.
Rating on this PC is a solid 4 stars all day long, very happy other than the heat build up and the WIFI headphone problem.

It looks like something a Predator would use
Posted by: DuhTeacha from: on
I had to upgrade my computers and went through a hellish journey before finding this computer. It was the only computer that even came close to my needs. It's small, which make it fit on my desk nicely. The computer is fast, and has yet to give me any issues. The light display, though unexpected, has become something quite enjoyable. Two things were concerning to me. First, there is no way to install a second drive into this computer. All additional drives must be external. Second the DVD drive is a laptop drive. It works just fine, but is vertical at the center of the computer, instead of the traditional horizontal tray. The video card is phenomenal. I've played Doom on the computer, a truly graphics heavy game, and it runs it seamlessly.

I recently purchased the Asus ROG G20AJ-B11 and after a couple days, I brought it back due to an overheating issue. It turned out to be defected. Best Buy gave me a couple options, either replace for the same machine, get my money back or upgrade. I obviously did not want the same machine so I decided to upgrade (why not). It cost me $170 more but it was all worth it.
This rig is outstanding! Excellent performance and style. I have several games installed including Fallout 4, GTA5, Sims3 (all expansions packs) etc. and this machine handles all with ease. I highly recommend purchasing Kaspersky Internet Security as well just to make your life easier along with the 3 year warranty and 24hour Geek Squad service! It cost a bit more but YOU WILL BE COVERED on pretty much anything.

For a slim line desktop it performs very well.
Even with an i7 6th generation processor the mechanical drive still moves about as fast as you would expect it to. The only way to get it to move faster would be with a SSD, and frankly if you bought the geek squad plan you don't have to worry about breaking any warranty because they cover it for you.
Don't quite understand what the complaints are all about. This computer does a good job at running games at a consistent 60fps. If you want higher frame rates then get a larger tower that supports multiple graphics cards, or simply upgrade the current card in the tower.
Overall I'm enjoying my new investment. Would definitely recommend it to others.

Everything you want...
Posted by: Yolee from: on
I needed a new PC and as I am an avid gamer decided to go with a "gaming" machine this time (more power, memory,e tc.) so I wouldn't have to keep upgrading as I have had to do in the past. Was on the fence about this but took the plunge as the reviews were all excellent. So glad I did. the machine runs like a dream...quiet, cool and attractive. Compact enough to sit on my desk so its not collecting dust on the floor. Also gets better circulation. I use two huge monitors and the video card handles them with complete ease. My games look stellar and with one game that has simpler graphics I can run it at ultra settings with no lag or issues.
If your a serious gamer, this machine is a must. If however your just looking to do some regular tasks, the machine is definitely overkill, get one of the Asus's without all the bells and whistles.

Great Gaming Computer
Posted by: ArticGames from: on
This computer is all i expected it to be and more. Really loving the power and everything it can do. The computer requires two outlets and power plugs for the model i got. That caught me off guard at first but all together works out well. if you only use one plug then you can not use the GTX 970 Graphics card and are left using the integrated Graphics. There is a few issues i have had with the computer temporarily freezing everything for a few seconds before going back to normal and while i find that a little jarring i hope it is just Nvidia Drivers and will see for sure when the next driver update happens. I have yet to come across a game that this computer can not play at decent or high settings. At the end of the day i am really happy with this computer and would definitely suggest it to anyone looking for a great gaming computer.

My wife and I are gamers and love Asus. She just got a laptop upgrade and we stayed with the brand that has been solid, stable and good. Sure there's a bit of bloatware but Windows 10 is super easy to kick anything you don't want to the curb.

Store #763 sold me 2 defective units
Posted by: Fauatea1988 from: on
I'm going to preface this by saying that the Asus ROG is a great computer but Best Buy Store #763 sold me 2 defective units that gave the Blue Screen of death and the second on ended up having a power failure and even though I had full coverage protection the store didnt want to give me a refund or replacement until I escalated the issue to the Store manager and even then it was a difficult time. I ended up switching to an Alienware Aurora and even that unit was broken as it had a broken Power sata on the Optical drive and they refuuse to give me a replacement or a refund.
