The design of this laptop is outstanding, a beautiful piece to look at indeed.
The first thing i have checked is the display, sadly it does have light bleed but it is very minimal and not noticable at all. Only when you look for it.
Performance & Temps:
I was easily getting above 144 fps on Fortnite, with the balanced gaming mode with temps reaching at 80C max.
From 80 to 120 fps in dota ( high settings ) which reached max temp of 83 to 85 C.
Overall this laptop can tackle any game if you will accept the turbo mode fan noise.
This laptop have never throttled and the temps were always below 90C, the fan noise is quieter than what I have expected, and if you will wear a gaming headset with closed ear you wont hear it at all.
However sometimes you will get some fps fluctuations which can be fixed/minimised with GPU driver updates and using Vulkan support in Dota 2, if you prefer to avoid all that go for the 17 inch version which has G-Sync support.
The sound quality is ok id give it 7/10 its not bad seeing how thin the laptop is.
This keyboard is much better than any keyboard i have tried, so comfortable to type on and no spelling mistakes unlike desktop keyboards. And you wont feel any heat which is the best thing about this laptop design.
Sad that there is no thunderbolt 3 port, RJ45, however the laptop wifi card is so good that you don't need a RJ45 port, the connection is tested and theres no packet loss or stutter at all.
It can be extended easily with power saving mode up to 3 to 4 hours on browsing and normal use. However you will need to carry a charging brick with you everywhere or a 65W power adapter to charge it with USB C.
Overall id give this laptop 8.5 out of 10.
However If you have the money i recommend buying the 17 inch version just for that G sync panel, other than that this laptop is great and i have no regrets at all.
I will post photos later and include further details incase i notice anything.
Edit: temps mentioned above are for CPU, GPU temps were mostly below 65 C which is amazing.
Edit December 2019:
Thanks for the helpful votes!
One of the downsides I noticed about this laptop is the storage. Only up to 1TB of PCiE SSD and it is a hassle to install it. There is a video on YouTube on how to open up this laptop which helps. Laptop still running good though.
- SUPER THIN and light. Thinner than i've imagined.
- Amazing cooling. I was getting 63 degrees celcius on GPU and around 82 on CPU while heavy BF5 load. GPU max temperature was 65 and CPU had a peak at 95 (but overall stable at 80 - 85).
- Keyboard positioning is better than many people are imagining. It is not bad at all, trust me, you will get used to it (left handed talking).
- Awesome USB C charging options. That was one of the reasons that made me decide to buy this machine.
Screen: Bad quality control. Asus should be ashamed. Lots of IPS Glow and a dead/stuck pixel. Watching dark scenes in movies and games was bad, especially coming from a OLED Alienware R3. Also, the screen was very badly centralized regarding the bezels. On the top I had huge space from the screen to the bezel (larger on the left size). Why Asus, why?
- Not very confortable to use the touchpad on bed or sitted, because the right corner of the laptop will be in the center of your hand, hurting a little bit after some time. But I wouldn't remove a star for that.
- Fans are very good but loud as *****. Seriously, very loud while heavy load. But I dont care if its keeping the product cool. Higher up the volume or use a headset.
I'll also review my second Zephyrus when it arrives. If it comes with screen problems, I advise everyone to forget about this device.
I hope this review helps.
Here are some pros after couple days of using. Very good cooling as the metal frame and fans with the increased air intake all contribute to the cooling. When I play game, I pleasently found out it OC the 2070 maxq all the way above 1600mhz as the spec only stated 1200mhz from Nvidia. The ROG tax does pay off itself and awards me an awesome product. I also like the speaker that's placed on the bazel right below screen firing towards user's face. It really makes the audio a lot louder and more crisp compared to some other designs with speakers on the bottom facing downwards. I'm used to higher resolution such as 14'' 2k and 27'' 4k from my other devises, but the 15.6'' FHD screen here still looks very clear with great color and the thin bazel is quite gorgeous.
Now about the cons I found out. Nothing is a dealbreaker tho. It gets quite loud under full load, so does any other brand so it's really not something to criticize about. I just pop in my earphone and it's all good (Yes, it has headphone jack unlike some fancy brand that doesn't LOL). Keyboard could take some time to get used to but works out pretty well if used on a desk. I fell great typing on it and it never gets too warm because it's away from hot components. I do prefer a full fat mechanical keyboard tho. I wish there is thunderbolt 3, but I really don't need (nor afford) an external graphics card that's stronger than 2070. I really want some kind of biomatric authentification for login (either face or fingerprint). This is one thing I feel really lacked in this laptop. (Yes I'm spoiled by my phone and thinkpad that both have fingerprint unlock).
Overall performance of this gaming laptop is everything I expected and more. Very happy with the build quality. My friends are so jealous too.
