Authors of this review ( ) are not that optimistic concerning this laptop. Biased as they may be for the competitors of Acer and Dell with cheaper TN screens, the reviewer report following issues of Asus ROG Strix GL553VD:

1. There is still some overeating under heavy load, as one could expect from a single-fan cooling system. Though tbe overall internal temperatures stay in tolerable limits, the exhaust vent spot seems to overheat badly. Initial temperature of the spot is 110F (43C), but in an hour the temperature raises as high as 130F (54C). Basically, the data corresponds perfectly with measurements provided by Mr Dave Lee, and by some other reviewers. However, taken the temps as tolerable for casual usage, the laptop still cannot be recommended for prolonged work sessions under heavy loads on CPU and GPU, since 54C may cause potential damage to any adjacent internals of your laptop – probably in a course of several months. Not to say that your left palm rest area may get constantly burning hot.

2. A serious structural issue: the laptop aluminium lid, as the reviewer claims, is too thin, tending to bend under slightest pressure with high potential risk of damaging LCD while carrying in a bag. On the other hand, some owners of MSI GE62/72 6QF reported the same issue, so the problem is universal payback for a light weight. It seems like Alienware alone is still free from this plague.

Amazon users also report some other issues, like BSODs and yellowish spots all over the screen, as well as occasional overheating. But since the user reviews are still scarce, they can be referred to the category of casual factury defects rather than structural flaws.

However, other than that, the build quality seems to be OK. Hinges looks like firm and reliable enough (as compared to MSI GE series laptops). Keaboard, touchpad are OK. IPS screen which seems to be of higher than average quality (75% Adobe RGB, 840:1 contrast ratio), which is definitely step forward from those poor TN screens. GTX 1050 Ti 4 Gb yeilds a half of performance of 1060, but the deal is relatively fair for the price.

Can any real owners of Asus ROG Strix GL553VD affirm or deny these preoccupations concerning Asus ROG Strix GL553VD?

Personal Goliath says:

pls do a review of msi gl62 7rd

Merry Blind says:

Any laptop with a numpad is an automatic skip for me. I don’t understand why so few companies understand that it’s much more ergonomic to have the keyboard centered on your laptop. Macbooks do it, Surface Book, Dell XPS, etc. and they’re among the best laptops out there… why don’t other companies get the hint?

markus jewell says:
