    Low Cost And Power To Boot

    |
    Posted .

    Just buy it! I purchased this computer a month or so ago and I love this laptop. I'm not an avid gamer like I use to be, but still like to play when I get a chance. I play Arma 3, DayZ Standalone, SkyRim, Stranded Deep and several others. You can look me up on Steam to see all my games. People complain of this laptop getting hot and Yes, if you have this thing sitting on your lap play a graphics intense game, It's Going To Get Hot In Your Lap. Duh! All the laptops I've ever had while playing games got hot. So really getting hot is not an issue to keep you from buying any gaming laptop. I keep the fans at max RPMs all the time. I never notice the sound of the fans. With headphones on, air conditioner going and any other noise in the general area, I don't think you're going to notice the fan noise as being the problem in the room. That being said, this computer pumps out up to 150 watts of heat. It needs a lot of fans blowing to dissipate the heat for sure. I play all my games at the High to Maximum Settings! Never a problem for me. Arma 3 might dip down to the low 20s in the FPS department, but I don't mind. I go for quality over FPS. I can reduce quality to Medium and I get over 50-60 FPS. No Problem at all in Arma 3. I love to look at the scenery in these games. Especially on Stranded Deep. I play on Max settings with no trouble. I've seen on forums that people are having trouble on desktop PCs at these setting and this laptop eats it up. I Love It. The screen is by far the best I have used in any laptop to date. I'm not into 4K, I thinks its a waste. 1080P is all anyone really needs (IMO) in games or work. Maybe a graphics designer needs 4K, but I do not. There is also no flickering that I have noticed while using this laptop. Very, very nice screen. The keyboard is a little more spaced out then I am use to. This being the largest computer at 17.3" I've ever owned, it is taking some getting use to. Most of the heat in this laptop is right under the keyboard, with the right side of the keyboard being a little hotter than the left. This is good because most games use the WASD keys when playing. The palm area does feel a little warm when gaming a long while, but not so bad I want to stop because of it. Everyone that sees the red backlit keyboard is immediately attracted to the computer. They love the looks of the keyboard. I like it a little better than the white backlit laptops. Full RGB would have been nice too. The pics I have included were taken in my work truck. I put one of my EGA badges on my laptop. It accents the computer nicely. I'm very fortunate to have this laptop. If you get one you will be to. On the screen you will see me running Virtualbox running Windows XP. I use this computer for work and some of the apps we use run best on XP. Bottom line is I highly recommend the GL702VS. Work, Home, or Play, it will do the job. Things I don't like about this laptop. 1. The front edges are way to sharp. After playing or working a while it tends to hurt my palms. 2. If you're not almost directly over the keyboard then you can see the LED lights under the keys. This is annoying to me. 3. A couple of the stickers on the palm area are really stupid. I mean really, putting a HDMI sticker on a laptop is really stupid. 4. No air intake in the front. This would have greatly lessened the heat at the front of the keyboard IMO. 5. No quick charge with any of the standard USB ports. Only the USB-C port is a quick charge port. Thats BS! 6. The bezel around the display has a edge on it the feels like I'm about to tear it off when I close the lid or my finger slides across it. 7. Sometimes if I let the laptop sleep by closing the lid, it takes a awfully long time to reboot. All you get is a black screen and the hard drive light whirling away. A hard reset after a few minutes and the after the hard drive light slows down is the only immediate remedy. If I shutdown the laptop, I do not get this trouble though. 8 The touch pad is hard to respond if your fingers are very dry or callused. You guys that work your tails off for a living will have this problem. 9. Bestbuy (I assume) put in two 6GB sticks of RAM using both slots. Why not just one 12GB stick? Then if you wanted to upgrade you could have purchased another 12 GB and been done. Things I Love about this Laptop: 1. It is F A S T. Very Fast. 2. Great Sound. I little louder than any other laptop I've owned with clearer sound. 3. Chews thru any game I install. I love this laptop hands down! 4. The top lid feels very secure and well made, other than the little bezel problem I mentioned above. One handed close from a corner feels a little flimsy, but closed nicely when done. I suggest only from the center or two hands just to be safe. 5. Dedicated Graphics + 12GB of memory is perfectly fine. Don't think second thoughts about the memory. It's good to go! 6. The hard drive is fast, but it no SSD. If you buy this laptop, plan on upgrading to a M2 SSD. I Am. 7. The style and design is top notch. People see this computer and figure I dropped a couple grand on it. 8. The bottom of the computer is easy enough to remove. Just make sure you have the right tools for the job, The bottom needs a spudger of some sort to pop the click-lock tabs after the screws are removed. Search YouTube on a howto video. Asus wants us to upgrade this puppy and has made it very easy.

    Best Gamer Laptop For The Price

    |
    Posted .

    With the nVidia GTX 1070, and even with the lack of similar RAM memory slots, because this laptop have one 8GB slot plus a 4GB, this laptop is a monster for games. Recommended. The NVme slot for new SSD drives is a bonus, that I appreciate by a lot, actually...

    You won't regret this rig

    |
    Posted .

    I've had this laptop for about a week now and put it under as much strain as I could and it's handled it like a champ. The first thing I did with it was put a few AAA, graphically demanding titles on it just to make sure I had purchased the right rig. I've played Mass Effect: Andromeda, Gears of War 4, Final Fantasy XIII and XIV, along with a few others and never had my FPS drop below 90 on maximum settings (and at a 4K resolution). I've come to the conclusion that this thing will last me well into the future. I game on standard settings for the most part anyway. The keyboard is very responsive and easy to use. I can say the same for the touchpad. Some of Asus's built in apps are kind of useless but overall there aren't many and they do have their niche uses. I like the one that'll show me CPU/GPU speeds and temperatures. Speaking of temperatures, this laptop has gotten a little warm for me to comfortably hold in my lap. That is the only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5. A cooling pad may not be a bad idea (I've already ordered one). All of the apps, games, and even startup happen super quick compared to my Asus G75VW I got several years ago. Of course I was only sporting a 3rd gen i7 processor and a GTX 660m with that one. All in all, it's a really solid laptop that I expect to last me long into the future with easy portability with is 6lb weight and minimalistic exterior design which will make it easy to find a proper backpack or messenger bag for. Also, unless you're gunning for the GTX 1080 you WILL NOT find a better built and specced laptop at this price. There were no reviews when I bought this laptop and I hope this review will help anyone thinking of buying it.

    Best gaming laptop for the money

    |
    Posted .

    The ASUS GL702VS is the best gaming laptop you can buy for the money. It was on sale so I got it for $1,349 and then got 10% back in rewards points. Pros: The Core-i7 7700HQ is light years ahead of most laptops U-series CPU's and faster than the 6700HQ it replaced. You will be hard pressed to find a laptop with the nVidia GTX1070 for under $1700. 12 GB of ram is enough for most anyone right now but it is expandable with two DIMM slots. The wireless card has been extremely fast with no drop in connectivity. The keyboard is one of the best I've used on a laptop but I think the spacing on a 17.3" frame is the trick. The screen is crystal clear at 1080 and I haven't noticed any fatigue like I've seen with other screens. M.2 expansion slot is available for an SSD. Plenty of ports for connectivity also! It is a relatively lightweight and compact design for the size of the screen and the power it has. Cons: This laptop saves a bit on price by not having a solid state drive but instead a 1TB mechanical hard drive. The plus side is that there is room to add (in addition to, not replace) an M.2/NVMe solid state drive. The screen comes from the factory clocked at 75hz but does have G-sync, which is far less than some options/competitors with 120hz. I changed the refresh rate to a custom 100hz and have yet to have any issues and it functions very well. Additionally, there are reports that it runs hot and will actually be outperformed by laptops with the same hardware. This issue seems to be related to the heat pipe design and the layout of the motherboard.I have not experience 90*C use like some others have but here but peak around 78*C during heavy loads. There are a few tricks that can be done to lower heat: First: the CPU is over-volted from the factory. Using Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility, I under-volted the CPU by .120v which led to a 10*C reduction in heat at 100% load and 100% stability. This also led to a reduction in the maximum fan speeds (3,20 RPM) needed to maintain that drop which means the laptop was quieter and running cooler. Second: I added a 10 year old twin 80mm fan cooling pad. Despite it spinning slower and have less airflow than newer coolers (I am buying a new one), this dropped the max temp under 100% load by 5*C and another drop in required fan speeds (2,900 RPM). Third: This has been well documented on YouTube and has incredible results: a thermal re-paste of the CPU and GPU along with replacing ASUS' thermal goop on other circuitry with thermal padding dropped operating temps by 26*C (that was on stock voltage for the CPU too)! This will void your warranty though. If you're not comfortable trying this, don't. The other two options dropped over 100% load testing by 15*C and drop the fan speeds, if you manually turn the fans up in speed, it will run even cooler.

    Nice Machine

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this when there were very few reviews. I wanted a good gaming laptop, and chose this blindly over the 502. I play mostly blizzard titles (WOW & StarCraft II). I am very happy with this little beast. In WOW - In dungeons, it will run 115+ FPS on Ultra. Open world it will run between 45-75 FPS on Ultra. If you want a good gaming laptop then this is the one. Love the big screen. So happy I waited 2 days for this to come in instead of getting the 502 that was in stock. Some Pros: If you are stuck trying to pick this 702 or the 502... look at the back with the screen open. You will see the screen on the 502 blocks the exhaust ports. The 702 will not. The speakers are tiny but I am surprised about how much sound comes out of them. Don't expect amazing sound, but they sound amazing compared to their size. Cons: This thing gets VERY hot. I have seen the core temp get to 94c. (Use the ROG Gaming Center software to turn the fans up and you can keep the temp under control.) Things you should know: I am not sure if they still sell the 702 or 502 with the GTX1060, but spend the extra $$ and get the 1070 for the desktop graphics. After first boot up, I installed 2 games and my antivirus software. I tried to run the ROG Gaming Center software and it crashed every time I tried to open it. I found the problem was with AVAST. I even tried adding it to trusted programs. Nothing worked. Had to uninstall and get a different antivirus.

    Portable Video Editing/Gaming rig

    |
    Posted .

    I needed a portable solution for video editing with a screen size that doesn't make me squint at a reasonable price. My previous unit was a Gigabyte P34W v4 which was plenty powerful and light but the screen size was at times challenging. I got this as an open box for around $1200 out the door. And the CPU/Video Card out class my previous unit. The screen is large and looks great. The build is sturdy. The look is a little cheap with the painted on faux brushed metal. Boot times were less than a minute but sometimes the apps seemed to take longer to load than they should. Swapped in my old SSD drive and fixed that right up. Video Editing goes quickly and even handles 4K footage pretty well. Render speeds in Premiere Pro are pretty fast as they usually render more quickly than the length of the clip. After Effects takes a bit longer than I'd hoped for. I'll be updating the Ram to 32Gb to resolve that. All in all a quality system. I wish it was less than 5lbs instead of 6.3lbs but that's a much higher price point that my budget does not allow for. Definitely worth the price I paid.

    Very Powerful Laptop With Good Upgrade Options

    |
    Posted .

    Pros: -Great Screen color, bright and although its refresh rate is only 75 hertz, you can bring it up to 100hz and it has vsync. -Powerful Graphics Card with a Nvidia 1070. Can run almost all games out there on Ultra with almost no hickups whatsoever. -Decent Amount of Ram -1TB 7200rpm drive instead of 5400 which is the average. Cons: -Does get very warm to the touch on heavier gaming titles although it allows you to control fan speed very well. I would recommend buying a good laptop cooling pad. -No SSD drive, however adding one is very easy. I plan on adding a M.2 2800 SSD drive to it soon. Overall I would highly recommend this laptop or really any ASUS gaming laptop. I mean hey...ITS ASUS!

    Excellent for gaming

    Posted .

    I've read a lot of reviews on this laptop from the Best Buy website and for the most part I have to agree with the majority. The major thing I would like to touch on is this models display and Hdd, with that being said let's start. As this is Best Buy brand model GL702V not the VS or VM which the other models can do 120hz and come with a m.2 drive. Don't worry about that, I was able to overclock this display to 103hz but dialed it down to 100hz. I understand it's not 120hz but you wont notice the difference believe me and its free performance. I have 2 major complaints the HDD is super slow and you have to manually adjust the fans for better temperatures because the software isn't that great and auto just keeps the noise down. Pros G-Sync 1070 gtx 8 gigs or vram Display able to be Overclocked (mileage my differ) Cons HDD Software

    Great for gaming with a few annoyances

    |
    Posted .

    I think a lot of the reviews on here already do this laptop justice. I've only had it for two days, so I'm writing more on first-impression than anything else. Obviously it's got the specs for gaming. So, you'll be happy there, and honestly, that's really 90% of the importance there - does it perform the way you want it to? And the answer is yes. My only annoyances are these: 1. its look reminds me of the old (OLD) Dell / IBM laptops from back in the late 90's. I think the gray trim instead of the black trim does it injustice here because both me and a friend of mine both commented first-thing upon opening it up that it looked like "the family laptop from years ago." 2. It flexes where it shouldn't. The screen can be easily flexed, and the keyboard (especially the keyboard around the asdf keys) flex. I noticed the keyboard flex immediately, not because I'm typing hard, but when I was setting things up and just getting a feel for the keys it was a pretty obvious flex. It makes it feel cheap combined with (in my opinion) the 90's look. This is a pretty big annoyance in look and feel. 3. The num-pad!!!! The keys are squished together for some reason. It's actually really difficult to use the num-pad quickly because they made the number keys all half-size. Same with the dedicated arrow keys - they have just odd spacing and therefore it's not immediately intuitive to use them. 4. Hot hot hot hot hot. The heat doesn't cause an issue with the actual system overheating or anything. Everything I watched and read in reviews and benchmarks all say it's within limits - however - it's HOT to the touch. The keyboard around the jkl; keys gets really hot, while the area above the F-keys is scalding hot. DON'T try using this on your actual lap lol. 5. Back-lit keyboard. I previously had a HP Omen with black keys and red lettering like this one, and the Omen illuminated the keys much, much better. I think the keys are set every so slightly too high above the lights, so the lettering doesn't illuminate enough, and instead every key has lighting under and around it much brighter. It's not that it's bad - I've just seen it done much, much better. So, those are my negatives. Are they deal-breakers? no. Are they something that would have made me buy a different laptop had I known about it ahead of time? Possibly.

    An excellent machine, but needs a little help.

    |
    Posted .

    THE GOOD: - Enough power to play just about any game I can think of on High, if not the highest, settings (Wolfenstein: The New Order, for instance, runs on its highest settings without any lag; same goes for Overwatch) - Has an m.2 SATA port, which allows for upgrading to an SSD. - The keyboard and touchpad feel much nicer than previous ROG laptops, and unlike previous ones I've had, haven't had any issues with not working. - The screen is beautiful to look at, and the chassis is elegant yet sturdy. It has a much smaller profile than a previous year's edition of laptop would. THE BAD: - It gets hot. Really hot. I recommend getting a cooling mat if at all possible. The heat doesn't seem to degrade performance, but it does make the device uncomfortable to touch after periods of heavy use. - A laptop of this level really should come with a SSD. It booted a little slowly until I swapped out the hard drive. - Lack of a high resolution display. You're stuck with the standard 1920x1080 display unless you plug in a monitor. THE UGLY: - The case was not built with upgrades in mind. It is very difficult to open the laptop to insert more RAM or an m.2 SSD. All things considered, I'm glad I bought this laptop. It required some help in the form of an SSD upgrade, but it outperforms even my dedicated gaming desktop that I built, which cost almost $1000 more to assemble.

    Great gaming laptop on a budget

    |
    Posted .

    I bought the ASUS GL702VS to replace my old G75. Great price for having an 7th gen i7 and 1070, relatively light, gets warm but doesn't overheat (CPU 83c under stress test). It plays WoW and D3 on max settings. The screen is bright but like most people I don't game outside in direct sunlight ;) The included hard drive is slow so an SSD is highly recommended. Without it boot times were almost three minutes. It has an M.2 NVMe slot so I added a 256 GB Samsung 960 EVO. The back doesn't have individual panels for RAM, SSD, etc (Cost cutting measure?) but it wasn't hard to take the entire back off to add it. Keep the screws separate because some are different length. Neither the computer or SSD comes with the SSD mounting screw so you have to purchase it separately. Unlike some ASUS models the keyboard back light is red and can't be changed. I've owned it for about a month now and I'm very happy with it. It's not a "top of the line" gaming laptop and some reviews complained that it should have come with an SSD or a better screen but it's all about cost. If it did the price would have been higher. At least this way you can get an SSD that fits your budget.

    This R4 17 runs high demand games yet stays COOL.

    |
    Posted .

    I've tried several newer gaming laptops before settling on Alienware 17 R4 Kabylake with 1070 Nvidia with 120 hz Gsync. My main bone of contention with the other brands was how hot they got when under load. The games I play are not all that demanding either. On these other brand laptops I could get the CPU and gpu up to 90C very quickly by playing a certain golf game. Also, the top of the laptops would get very hot to touch. Granted, they would cool down quickly after quitting the game, but I just didn't like it getting that hot. The R4 plays the same games and I can't get the temps up past 70C so the cooling on this R4 is really good. This Bestbuy version only has a 128g ssd Sata boot drive but does have a 7200rpm drive where a lot of competing brands use 5400rpm drives in their base models. I opted to buy a 500g Samsung evo pro 860 pcie nvme for $325 to put in the extra m.2 slot. This is where the games and other slow loading programs will go. The laptop is heavy at around 10 lb but built very, very solid which feels great when you type on it. Truly a desktop replacement. I move it around the house quit often and put it on a lap tray so the weight is not directly on my lap. pros: awesome lighting for the lids and the keyboard, great 400 nit tn monitor with gsync for smooth graphics with 120 hz refresh rate, great sound with the best speakers I have heard on a gaming laptop, great aw app for checking performance, changing lighting effects, sound control, and wireless/Ethernet control settings, etc. Also, extra m.2 full and half size ssd slots for Sata or Pcie cards and 1 type-c USB and 1 type-C USB with thunderbolt for future expansion. Also has a port to connect to a graphics amplifier that can contain other graphics cards. Killer wireless/Ethernet. Cons: monitor is not ips, ssd is only 128g Sata, laptop is heavy. Power supply is big and heavy also. Higher cost then most competing laptops. Only 2 regular size 3.0 USB ports. I highly recommend this model even though it cost a little more.

    Awesome PC after updates

    |
    Posted .

    I was super excited to get this laptop since I started looking for one months before. I wanted a 1070 with an i7 for under 1500 which is not an easy goal. I waited and waited until I saw this on sale. After purchase, I had a couple issues. One was that after closing the lid, the screen wouldn't come back on. After a quick google search, the firmware was updated and the issue was fixed (known issue). Second issue I had was that the PC would turn off during game play. Ever sign seemed to point towards overheating until a temp monitor was used (the ROG has a super useful button on the keyboard to directly pull up temperate and usage) and the temperatures were well in their guidelines (7700-HQ - 100c ; GTX 1070 - 85c). After a Geek Squad visit, it was advised that there may be some kind of software/OS issue and after a Windows "essential update", I have not had an issue since. I have been using it for VR without any tearing/frame drop. TL;DR - Awesome laptop for the price. It might have been a one-off issue with mine, but it was never a problem that couldn't be fixed without some guidance.

    Good laptop, good price, but the ports, well ...

    |
    Posted .

    This is a really good laptop, at a good price, but it has some minor flaws. First, the screen is bright and crisp, and shows well at all angles. The i7 processor with 12 GB memory is snappy, making multitasking a breeze. You're probably buying it for the 1070 GPU, and it doesn't disappoint. However, the unit does run hot, especially right in the center of the keyboard. Speaking of which, some people will love this keyboard, others ... well, not so much. I fall into the latter category. Finally, while the laptop has a great selection of ports, the placement could be better. All the ports are pushed to the sides, and towards the back of the unit. This leads to situations where cord management can be an issue, especially on the left side where the power supply plugs in. This is the third straight Asus I've had as my primary gaming laptop. This case is slimmer and the laptop lighter than any of them. I'll gladly buy this unit again, but I hope for the next generation they look to address the heat dissipation issues and port placement.

    Desktop power in a laptop frame

    Posted .

    Amazing performance awaits you when you purchase a laptop with the NVidia GTX 1070 GPU. This laptop can handle all games with max settings at 1080p on the built in 75Hz G-Sync display. It also can handle games at 1440p at 75Hz on a second display and 4K gaming around 30fps-50fps depending on the external display, game and graphics settings. Designed for gaming but great for photography and videography processing as well, with the Core i7 7700HQ being a quad-core CPU. I am not a fan of the build quality as the laptop seems to be quite fragile, made mostly of plastic and a flexible metal back side of the screen. The laptop is quite large and fairly heavy, making one realize that this is a seriously powerful machine. Have a Thunderbolt 3 port is great as well along with 1TB of storage. I recommend this laptop to anyone that is looking to have desktop processing and gaming power in a portable form factor.

    Needs better cooling features!!!

    |
    Posted .

    I'm not a gamer by ANY stretch of the imagination; yet I purchased this unit for architectural programs, CAD programs, and animated simulations. I despise seeing "Republic of Gamers" for which, my colleagues find humor in this. The machine seems to run slow or flicker at times, yet i believe that the temps rise quickly. It would be nice to have the ability to employ a secondary cooling system, that is connected to a "remote" water cooler. This is possible just as we use remote or external hard drive units. there could be plumbing lines, or tubes integrated into the design for those who decide that a secondary, external unit, (which is too big for a mobile computing system), would aid in lowering temperatures. The integrated tubes can then be connected via quick disconnect couplings that make employing this type of auxiliary cooling possible. Yes i realize that condensation needs to be addressed.

    Perfect gaming laptop

    |
    Posted .

    This laptop is a beast but does have some downfalls that make it the 4 star rating. First the good! This laptop doesn't stop or bottleneck on triple A titles or demanding games. Modded minecraft runs a solid 250 fps average on ultra, PUBG is smooth as butter and Rocket League shines and these are just a couple of dozens that I have played. Screen is crisp to back it up at 75Hz which is plenty! Now the not good but honestly not bad! If you are looking for a business looking laptop well then this is the one for you. It looks just not great, the metal top is nice but the inside deck where your hands rest is plastic and no RGB available keyboard, for the price you would want to see that. The only not good things are all cosmetic. Take my word for it and go look at this laptop because it is nice! And you get a gtx1070 with 8gb of ram on it! That's insane.

    More Laptop than I expected

    |
    Posted .

    So many little features to this laptop, it is truly more than I probably need. The large screen is great for CAD work. The graphics memory was key to me to run a 3D engineering program and this more than delivers. Plenty of storage. Make sure you take the laptop with you when/if you buy a bag because it is slightly larger than most bags will handle. (I was fortunate to be able to use the previous bag I had for a 17" Sony laptop.) The back-lit keyboard is a nice feature to have and the ability to regulate the performance of the laptop with the built in interactive software is really an added bonus. The laptop is lightweight, the power supply is huge, so once again, make sure you get a bag with plenty of space.

    Although a little tedious as I had to address the known heating issue with this laptop I installed a utility program to control the CPU and since then have had no issues whatsoever. love the laptop design and all and after about 2 hours of playing destiny 2 it never went above 80 degrees Celsius which is more than optimal. Love the ROG series and the designs, make sure you do your homework before making a purchase. Not recommended for first time gaming computer buyers.

    I would recommend this to a friend
