    Five Star performance with Three Star caveats.

    As far as performance, it is fast and gets the job done well. In gaming it performs superbly, video transcoding speeds are greet and, DirectX rendering and simulation are on par with many desktop workstations. The keyboard fonts are clear and with or without lighting you can easily find home row. The caveats! The track pad is not well designed to the gamer or the worker, it lacks the functionality of many other trackpads. It is not quirky, simply a poor implementation. Get a decent mouse if you want to be productive or not get fragged. The noise level can be near jetliner from time to time (sometimes it revvvvvs up for no apparent reason) and, for the money, an optical drive would have been nice. this is a five star product all day long until you deal with the lacking track pad and noise.

    Crashed within 4 months

    Don't buy it! I unfortunately did, and within 4 months it crashed. ASUS had to replace the Motherboard, update Bios and reinstall the Operating System. This has taken more than one month despite being a Elite member of Best Buy, having a valid manufacturer's guarantee, a Geek Squad insurance and service agreement. Patience is a virtue and I have had to make several calls to Geek Squad and ASUS to get some information about is happening with my laptop. Still today I have not got the laptop back. This is the worst service and product I have ever bought.

    This is probably the tenth ASUS laptop I bought; they are all used for engineering, software development, CAD/CAM, etc. They work nice, they are robust enough not to die in an industrial environment (ok, you cant drop them). I use these to drive two external 4K monitors, plus the internal monitor; I'm not a gamer, but I've been running Flight Simulator X on the 2 external 4X monitor and it works with usable screen refresh rate.

    This is a great all around laptop. Awesome looks as well as performance. I love the features it has that allows you to customize many different aspects of the computer. Only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because of the track pad . It isnt always accurate as you may have to try a couple times to get your command right. Not a big deal if youre using it for gaming, as you will most likely use a mouse.

    As a beginner in 3D animation this computer was exactly what I needed in order to do my work on the go. It’s processing speed is the best out there of course, but as far as laptops go I don’t think I could have found a better one that had the system requirements I need while on a budget. I highly recommend it for those who need a better machine but don’t have the budget for one of the best.

    For the price and it’s capabilities, The ASUS ROG Strix Scar Edition is one of the best deals out there. My girlfriend and both got one so we could game together, and the laptop is capable of playing every game I have on maximum graphics settings with no slowdown whatsoever. I’ve yet to see any instances where performance is impacted because the processor and graphics card can handle everything I’ve thrown at it thus far.

    5 STARS for this ROG Strix!!! As far as gaming notebooks go, the Strix is conspicuous. The black, brushed back is very cool and is meant to represent the diagonal map split of MOBA games like Dota 2. It’s an elegant, if somewhat arcane, reference to what ROG expects most customers to be using this thing for. I definitely recommend this to all gamers out there!!! :))

    it's a nice laptop it handles my games with out problems. i guess my problems are it gets real hot when playing games for 4-6 hours i can hear the fans running not loud but i can here them even when tv is on ,the ssd for c drive is nearly full 47gb free had to put games on D: drive so upgrade the boot ssd as soon as possible because game load slower on HDD

    Really powerful laptop for image and video editing

    I purchased this PC for video and image editing and it is a screamer. I love the combination of SSD and HD and the fact that there is an empty ram slot if I want to upgrade in the future. Good quality overall (screen, keyboard, aesthetics). It is heavy and bulky - but it's ok, I did not buy it for "on the go". It's a great deal for the price.

    Computer booted up fine first two days. Noticed the computer runs high temperature just running games but cools off quick after games are done. Woke up in 3rd day and computer initiated a BIOS update which locked up the computer. Returned that same day.

    Love this Asus laptop!!! Super fast!!!! Great monitor!!!! I won't lie I like the LED lights under the keyboard. If I'm working I leave them red. But fun if watching music videos or listening to music and have them change to the beat. GREAT LAPTOP!!!!!!!!

    This laptop is very good and you get great frames for almost any game and for the price that is really good and the only issue is noise, but while wearing headphones you can barely hear anything.

    I'm not a gamer but bought this powerhouse anyway. It boots quick, and runs multiple programs without a glitch. I added a bluetooth mouse and really love this setup.
