Asus ROG Strix GL553VD (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050) Laptop Review

 

Pricey budget gamer. Budget gaming notebooks are becoming increasingly popular thanks to GPUs like the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050, and Asus has decided to throw their hat into the budget ring with the GL553VD. The notebook packs modest hardware into a...

excellent, tactile keyboard ; RGB blacklighting options ; solid and sturdy chassis ; good thermal design ; bright and color accurate matte IPS display ; easy maintenance ; easily upgradeable

expensive for its specs ; middling battery life ; incredibly slow hard drive speeds ; loud, annoying fan ; poor port placement ; mediocre speakers ; disappointing touchpad

The Asus GL553VD is a prince among paupers. While its graphics card is targeted at the budget-conscious, its price is not. The same hardware can be found in the MSI GL62M about $100-150 less. that price can be even lower if users are willing to forgo...

Good performance ; Attractive design ; Quality screen

Mediocre battery life ; A little noisy ; So-so build quality

A great all-rounder of a gaming laptop.

Asus ROG Strix GL553VD-DS71 review

 

The Strix features an excellent display, rich stereo sound, and a handful of bizarre eccentricities.

Asus ROG Strix GL553VD Review

 

You don't have to drop $2,000 on a laptop to play games, but you definitely get what you pay for. The $1,099 Asus ROG Strix GL553VD features Nvidia's entry-level GTX 1050 GPU, which will let you play most games on medium settings. It's also one of...

Asus Republic of Gamers Strix GL553VD-DS71 Review and Ratings

 

The GTX 1050 graphics in this Strix laptop tramples its previous-gen GeForce kin, and an RGB keyboard and IPS screen boost the appeal. But we need to see a lower price, given the performance falloff versus the GTX 1060.

Nice-quality IPS screen ; Includes USB Type-C port ; Relatively quiet cooling ; Zone-customizable RGB keyboard lighting

Expensive, given GeForce GTX 1050 graphics ; No SSD at this price ; Display lacks Nvidia G-Sync support ; Keyboard-layout quibbles

Excelente teclado táctil ; Opções de iluminação de fundo RGB ; Chassi sólido e resistente ; Bom design térmico ; Tela IPS mate brilhante e com cores precisas ; Fácil manutenção ; Facilmente atualizável

Caro para suas especificações ; Duração média da bateria ; Velocidades muito lentas do disco rígido ; Ventoinha barulhenta e irritante ; Posicionamento das portas ; Alto falantes medíocres ; Touchpad decepcionante

O Asus GL553VD é um príncipe entre os pobres. Enquanto sua placa gráfica está destinada para os conscientes dos preços, o seu preço não. O mesmo hardware pode ser encontrado no MSI GL62M cerca de $100-150 a menos. Esse preço pode ser ainda mais baixo...

Un caro portátil para juegos barato. Los portátiles para juegos se están haciendo muy populares gracias a GPUs como la Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 y Asus ha decidido probar suerte en el mercado de equipos baratos con el GLV553VD. El portátil equipa...

Teclado excelente ; Opciones de retroiluminación RGB ; Chasis sólido y robusto ; Buena disipación del calor ; Panel IPS brillante y con buena reproducción del color ; Mantenimiento sencillo ; Facilmente ampliable

Caro para las especificaciones que ofrece ; Duración de batería regular ; Las velocidades de los discos duros son increíblemente lentas ; Ventilador ruidoso y molesto ; Mala situación de los puertos ; Altavoces mediocres ; Touchpad decepcionante

El Asus GL553VD es un principe entre los mendigos. Mientras que su tarjeta gráfica está orientada al consumidor preocupado por el precio, su precio no lo está. Encontramos el mismo hardware en el MSI GL62M por 100 o 150 euros menos. Este precio es aún...

Краткий обзор ноутбука Asus ROG Strix GL553VD (7700HQ, Full HD, GTX 1050)

 

Переоцененный игровой бюджетник. Благодаря появлению таких видеокарт, как nVidia GeForce GTX 1050, бюджетные игровые ноутбуки становятся все популярнее, поэтому Asus решила посоревноваться в данном секторе, выпустив GL553VD. Данное устройство...

Отличная и удобная клавиатура с RGB-подсветкой ; Прочный и жесткий корпус ; Удачная конструкция системы охлаждения ; Яркий матовый IPS-дисплей с точной цветопередачей ; Легкий доступ к компонентам ; Легкоосуществимый апгрейд

Дорогой для своей начинки ; Посредственное время работы от аккумулятора ; Непозволительно медленный жесткий диск ; Шумный кулер системы охлаждения ; Неудобное расположение портов ; Слабоватые динамики ; Разочаровывающий тачпад

Asus GL 553VD - "принц среди нищих". Если его видеокарта соответствует бюджетному уровню, то цена вряд ли. Такое же аппаратное обеспечение можно встретить в MSI GL62M, который стоит более чем на сотню евро меньше. Итоговая стоимость может быть и ниже,...

Recensione breve del Portatile Asus ROG Strix GL553VD (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050)

 

Gamer economico ma non troppo. I notebook Budget da gioco stanno diventando sempre più popolari grazie a GPUs come la Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050, e Asus ha deciso di lanciarsi nel ring con il GL553VD. Il notebook racchiude un modesto hardware in uno...

eccellente, tastiera tattile ; opzioni illuminazione RGB ; case solido e robusto ; buon design termico ; display matto IPS con colori precisi ; manutenzione faicle ; upgrade facile

costoso per quello che offre ; autonomia media ; hard drive incredibilmente lento ; ventola rumorosa e fastidiosa ; scarso posizionamento delle porte ; casse mediocri ; touchpad deludente

L'Asus GL553VD è un principe tra i poveri. Mentre la sua scheda grafica è mirata al budget, il suo prezzo non lo è. Lo stesso hardware può essere trovato nell'MSI GL62M per circa $100-150 in meno, questo prezzo può essere ancora più basso se gli utenti...
