    BB and Geek Squad to the Rescue!

    I was in a crisis!

    It was during a PanDammit!

    I needed my computer working! Or at least salvaged from an awful viral attack.

    BB came to the rescue! I bought a great new laptop perfect for my work load. BB Geek Squad safely retrieved data off my hard drive and installed onto my new device. I was able to promptly return to business.

    I Love BestBuy and Geek Squad!!! <3

    The fastest and best Laptop i have ever purchased! Im not 100% sure about this Iris video card, but it has to be decent if its in this system. Ill do my homework on it later. The 512 SSD Hard-drive is killer per usual, so no disappointment there! Very happy with this replacement given to me with my Geek Squad Protection plan!!! I ❤ BestBuy!!!

    So far so good

    TBD. Easy to set up. The screen is amazing. Color is great. Sound is awesome. Love that it has numeric keyboard. I returned a 15 in. 2 in 1 for this because I can’t do without the numeric pad. It’s Light weight for a big laptop .

    A bit pricey (compared to its smaller counter parts)for not being a 2 in 1. There have been a few flickers & slow to load a few pages, could just be my internet, we will see.. Also can’t figure out the screen shot, is it no longer available on new models? I had to use the snipping tool.

    To be really picky, the mouse pad could have taken less room for a bigger key board.

    Overall beautiful 4.5 stars. Buy the insurance!

    I do LOVE hp. Bought this one to replace my 9 year old hp laptop that took a spill(It was high dollar touch screen when I bought it) and better than most out there now. Real fast after switching out the memory to 1 T.

    I really like this laptop!

    This computer boots up fast. Has keys that light up. Great screen, it's large, and i can see the screen on a bright day outside. Also a nice bonus, it's a touch screen too! I love the numeric pad on the right hand side of the keyboard. However you won't know when the number pad is on, no dot that lights on on the Numlock key, so I just leave it on. Why that is missing, i don't know, HP, WHAT were you thinking? Put it back. Battery lasts but I'm not a gamer.. I check email and search the internet. I like the bottom has a ridge, so sits up from the surface to allow venting. I'm very happy with my purchase!

    Sleek Powerful Laptop

    I love my new HP Envy! The design is sleek, modern, and sassy! The 17.3 display screen is so beautiful, it comes to life. It's fast powering up and loading web pages/sites. The best HP laptop I have owned. In the third pic, my laptop has a gel keyboard cover that I added. I would say, this laptop is top of the line. I wished they made this model in 16gb and up, but I do not regret my purchase. I highly recommend the HP Envy 17.3 to everyone.

    Bargain Laptop with good GPU

    Let’s start by saying it’s the only computer brand with a 3060 under $1200, but on sale it’s a real bargain. The memory is so-so and for the price I get it (8gb), Storage is not bad for starters, I like the feel of the big keyboard due the the fact that there is no num pad…meh. The screen has a good refresh rate, but the color accuracy is off a decent amount. The mouse pad is ok, but I use a gaming mouse so it doesn’t affect me. The fans can get loud, but they keep the GPU running cool. Overall great laptop for the price.

    Hard to beat at $1099, Unbeatable at $849

    Seriously, get it on sale while you can, I've been nothing but impressed since getting mine.

    In my own benchmarks I would rate the CPU as the same performance level of a desktop Ryzen 5 2600, or a desktop I7-7700K(except with 2 extra cores, and 4 extra threads).

    The GPU in my own testing is very close to the performance level of a Desktop RTX 2060..... don't let the 75W rating fool you, this thing is still a little beast.

    You will of course want to add another 8GB stick of RAM and a bit more storage down the line, but even with that, the price for what you get is still amazing.

    There are a couple tweeks you might want to consider, the first and most important would be a CPU undervolt of around -100 millivolts, this can be done in BIOS when you enable the "expert mode" in BIOS settings by holding (right control+right shift+left alt+F2)..... the undervolt will improve CPU performance and cooling.

    Next thing you might want to consider is creating a custom fan curve in Dragon Center, the stock fan curve isn't horrible, but if you don't mind trading a little silence, you can definitely get some better cooling with your own curve.

    One other thing. If you don't want this thing forcibly updating you to Windows 11(it will try believe me), make sure to disable the TPM module in the BIOS security tab.

    Other than that, game on! this thing is surprisingly capable!

    Great Budget Gaming Laptop

    After months of investigation, I chose this laptop over some of its competitors due to the better GPU and lighter weight.

    The RTX3060 GPU, while throttled somewhat vs desktop versions, is still powerful enough to run most games. Additionally, the laptop has an integrated Intel Graphics chipset, which is used for most everyday tasks like web browsing and video playback. This enables the battery to last longer and generates less heat, allowing the fans to run quieter. The core i5, is competitive verses the i7, while being almost $200 cheaper.

    I highly recommend upgrading the RAM to at least 16 GB. The first thing I did was replace the 8 GB RAM with 32 GB and enable XMP in the BIOS. This let the RAM run at 2933 MHz, instead of the 2133 MHz that it was running out of the box.

    Best cheap beast lol

    PROS:

    1. It has 2 ram dimms (I upgrade to 32gb ram)

    2. It has 2 nvme dimms (I added +1TB nvme)

    3. Its warm with a cooler base and it's hot without it (at full blast playing the witcher III like 3 hours)

    4. It is fast even without upgrades

    5. Noise is not high with a cooler base and it is high without

    CONS:

    1. RTX3060 is the 60watt version, max 75watt (the lowest)

    2. Plastic feel, not cheap but plastic at the end

    3. You have to get into the BIOS to improve rams speed clocks

    4. Have only 2 usb ports + 2 usb-c

    OVERALL:

    Well you will not find a cheaper laptop with this hardware, I buyed this baby for 940usd (tax included, 829usd listed) and let me tell you that for that price, it was a steal, this beauty runs gooood with the RTX3060 and i5.

    I upgraded ram to 32gb and added 1TB stick to improve significally this laptop, after the upgrades I feel laptop speed increased like 30% in games. Consider to do this for GREAT IMPROVE, even another 8gb stick would be great, since it take advantage of the dual channel stuff.

    I always buyed 17.3in laptop, but the price range of laptops with that screen size with very similar hardware goes from $1400-$1600 so it is almost DOUBLE!.... I am considering buying a gaming monitor and a stand base to put the laptop (using it like a CPU?, lol) with the money I saved but not sure since I will feel that it lost all the sense of buying a laptop, but when I think I have an extra $500 bucks in my pocket just for the screen, so it's ok.

    Great performance, but no display output via USB-C

    Fast, requires some tweaking to reach acceptable thermal levels. (I prefer to keep my machines under 80* C under load)

    Buyers - be aware that this laptop has no displayport out via USB-C. The USB-C ports are literally only for data. No charging, or display outputs. The HDMI port is limited to 4k 30hz.

    As long as you're ok with these limitations, this is a great machine! I just wish there was more clarity about the display outputs. (You can literally only connect one external monitor unless you get a displaylink usb to hdmi adapter)

    Very good gaming laptop

    This laptop is very good for AAA games and it will play more demanding games at lower resolutions out of the box with 8gb of ram.I bought and installed 32 GB of ram plus a 1 TB hard drive for additional storage and the benchmarks more than doubled.I play Microsoft Flight Simulator with high settings and I can get approximately 50-60 fps and more depending on the background scenery and the screen is bright and clear.I am happy with my purchase but serious gamers should look to get at least 16 GB and 1 TB storage since the 512 GB SSD fills up quickly.

    Great price to performance

    Good components for the money at the regular price, excellent value when on sale.

    Not the best components, but your are not paying full price for the best on the market. The 3060 can run any game at 1080, but you can't run ultra quality on the newest AAA games. The cpu is good enough. The keyboard and trackpad are good enough. The screen is good enough for most people. The battery is good enough for a gaming laptop, if battery life is important to you don't buy a gaming laptop. To get better you have to pay more for each area, but this is meant to be a budget product.

    The only real upgrade you should do is increase the ram, which is relatively easy to do. While on sale and adding 8gb of ram, for around $1k total you have a decent system that should last you through 2023 when hopefully the shortages and prices get better.

    Not bad but ...

    Not a bad laptop, I did not care for the screen. Images were not as bright and vibrant as other screens I have seen and when compared against other monitors images would lose details. I did not like the funky keys. Sometimes I had to look at the keys twice to make sure I was pushing on the right key.

    Those are just personal preferences and I did not see anything wrong with the unit.

    Great upgrade and value proposition

    The best and most balanced version of the GS76 lineup by far IMHO. Great chassis, slick design, reasonable price when compared to the competition like Razer, Asus, Alienware and etc. Furthermore, it's easy to carry around, and very comfortable to type on unlike something like MacBook 13 with these M1 chips. I could go on and on about how great it is, but you gotta try it yourself to really experience what I'm so happy about.

    great laptop

    I absolutely love this laptop. I have had it now for a couple of weeks and I ran into one issue. The first day of my classes it wouldn't turn on. Go figure. My husband opened it and determined it had to do with the battery. He was able to get it turned on, thankfully, and it's been working fine ever since. Other than that hiccup, it's a great laptop. I love how the keyboard lights up and the screen has great resolution. Unfortunately, I had to take a star away for the battery complication, otherwise I love this laptop!

    Good product worth upgrade - tech support not good

    I really like this laptop especially after upgrading the RAM to 2 x 16GB DIMMs and replacing the basic 512GB HD chip with a 1 TB pro all from Amazon for around $200. Not a gamer so I can’t attest to the FPS or what games run best but this is a beast for my office workstation that should be able to handle anything thrown at it for the next 5+ years. I had purchased another more powerful laptop but when they did the discount week on this model I jumped because the other laptop was just a Ferrari sitting in rush hour traffic. I also saved $800 between the 2. My only con so far has been the response of MSI support. My 9 key came off of the number pad and they gave me a USA number to call for parts. No response yet. Then my original HD burnt up and I already had the 1 TB to replace and just did a fresh install of Win 10 and tech support said I had to ship the whole laptop back and would not just replace the chip. I will still give the system a solid buy.

    Great laptop!!

    This laptop is amazing and was in my budget range (under $1000). It can successfully run beefy games, such as: FF14, phasmophobia, valheim and more. The fans only get loud when I play phasmophobia but immediately become quiet again when I close phasmophobia. The storage could be better and so could the battery life when unplugged but everything else is great. Also this was the only cheap white laptop I found.

    Good budget gaming laptop

    I got this from a sale at 899.99 and used it as a secondary gaming rig. This is a great laptop but 2 things I upgraded right off the bat and got really good 3d mark scores,

    I upgraded the m.2 the factory one is was a little slow and only had 512 gigs to a 980 pro 2 TB and 32GB Crucial dual rank kit.

    4 stars because like others have said, cracking open the case voids the warranty.

    Great little powerhouse (with a tweak or two!)

    Great laptop, especially at the sale price! If you are buying this for gaming, you 100% will need to upgrade your RAM (and SSD, depending on what you play). This baby has great specs but will absolutely have lag issues with heavy-hitting games. I purchased 32GB / 2666 MHz memory (2 16s) and vastly improves performance, and the "upgrade" cost less than the laptop at retail - although be careful, as this will void your warranty. All in all, really happy with this purchase. This baby can (almost) keep up with my desktop, which says a lot!

    Best Bang for the Buck! Pros are way over Cons!

    MSI has the best gaming laptops around.

    Pros -

    1) 17-inch Laptop in a 15-inch body.

    2) Intel Core i9 11900H, RTX 3070, Phison 1TB NVME SSD, and Samsung 2 x 16GB DDR4 3200MHz SODIMM PC4-25600 CL22 2Rx8 RAM destroy the competition at this price point.

    3) Very professional appearance for a gaming laptop.

    4) Lightweight for its size and build quality.

    5) Has a full-size keyboard with a large trackpad.

    6) Super low profile design with tiny bezels.

    7) Thunderbolt 4

    Cons-

    1) Runs pretty hot. The CPU can hit 95C pretty easy and the GPU runs at about 75C.

    2) Terrible battery life, but it is a desktop replacement, meaning it is expected to be plugged in most of the time.

    3) Very temperamental fans.

    4) The display is quite flimsy and light bleed can be bad.

    5) Only two M.2 NVME slots vs the 2 NVME and 1 SATA M.2 on the GS75.

    Conclusion -

    There isn't much competition at this price point, especially in 17-Inch models. I love having a full-size keyboard and a large screen. Even with the issues, this is my third MSI GS Series laptop because it's a great overall product. MSI makes a great product!

    A great option, fast, and of great quality

    If you are looking for a fast, high-quality computer with a good design, and at a fair price, this is your best option, since it not only runs all the programs that are opened quickly and efficiently (some of which are very heavy because they are focused on 3D engineering design), but it is also very comfortable to use, since the size and definition of the screen helps not to have to strain your eyes, it has a very ergonomic keyboard and mouse pad that are easily adjusted In the hands of the user, it is very easy to transport because for its large size it has a light weight, and it is also important to mention that its stylish design and luminous keyboard, which allows you to choose the color of the keys, make it very beautiful to look at .

    If you are working or studying a career that requires the use of very heavy programs (such as engineering in my case), I fully recommend it, because it is the best computer I have had so far.

    Completely Satisifed

    Straight out of the box, the MSI GS76 setup was easy and quick plus it performed wonderfully. The 8Gb graphics memory as well as 32Gb system RAM made it possible to run graphics intensive applications quickly with no lagging or freezing. I would recommend the MSI GS76 to anyone looking for a development laptop to take on the road.

    Read before you buy!

    I had high expectations for this product but there are some points that made me disappointed. First, the overall design and keyboard is not good, buttons especially on/off buttons and texts are weird. Second, this pc gets really hot, i bought a cooling pad for this, i dont even play games, talking about zoom sessions. Third, sometimes the screen gets weird, gets pixellated and sometimes freezes. Fourth, the screen has low brightness than i expected. I would return it if i did not need this because of my heavy schedule at school. Besides these points, it is good in performance and came with a good packaging. However, i do not highly recommend this laptop. As you research, you will see that you cant find this product in many shops, i think because of these drawbacks.

    A great gaming laptop for its price. i9, 360hz display paired up with the 3070 is a nice set up. I recommend this to anyone looking for a gaming laptop as well as a desktop replacement. Its also a very light and smaller in size than most 17.3" laptop.

    Great laptop, semi ok support.

    Prior to the GS76, I owned an MSI GS65. I loved that laptop, though it got a bit warm and loud sometimes. This GS76 is almost better in every way: Its battery life is longer, provided you utilize the profiles. It boots up rapidly and add the 2nd storage drive is super easy. The keyboard is fine and doesn't take too long to get used to. I've been using it primarily to run several VMs with some gaming on the side and it has been great.

    However, I did end up with one working speaker. Opening a ticket, they wanted to do a full RMA process to fix it, even though the replacement speakers are simple to fix. As I needed the laptop for the near future and did not want to go a month+ without it, I did not opt for that. I plan to use headsets for most of the time. So I can't speak for the audio quality.

    "Value" 3080 laptop!

    The 130W 3080 delivers great performance for the price ($2099.99) and is at least competitive with other offerings in this price range. There is no mux switch (a way to disable optimus internally) so you'll need to attach an external monitor to unlock 100% of the performance, but it performs just fine if you're not desperate for a few % more frames on the go. Attached image is my ffxiv benchmark with the laptop in it's stock configuration not bypassing optimus. You can search for "ffxiv benchmark" if you wanted to compare to your current setup. On top of being an actual ffxiv player, I find the game's benchmark to be one of the best since it toggles between cpu and gpu demanding scenes.

    Favorite rig so far

    So far it’s been really cool and fairly quiet for the power.

    I own Alienware and Asus laptops and this one performs the best and stays the coolest. Only issue is Fusion software won’t save RGB settings.

    Definitely sold on Gigabyte laptops from here on.

    Solid Laptop

    I'm quite pleased with this laptop. The 3080 runs on about par with a 3060ti which can be expected with a laptop card. The included software lets you manage fans and clock speed which is nice. When plugged in and in overclocked mode it runs new world on max settings at about 110fps and stays around 58-62C with very reasonable fan noise. I do use an extra cooler underneath though. You can max out the fans and performance but then it sounds like a jet plane. Only oroblem i had was it didnt come with my windows key. I emailed them about ut and got my key in about 3-4 days.

    No opinion on the screen as I almost exclusively run this out to a series of 3 monitors. It has zero issues running a game on one screen, a website on another. And amazon music on the third.

    Does exactly what I wanted it to at a reasonable price. Hopefully it is durable but too soon to say on that!

    Good Laptop, Bad and Defective Keyboard

    Really light, slim, sleek laptop. Chassis seems good enough. IPS screen had a good color. Very portable and easy to carry. It's pretty quick overall to turn on as well, maybe less than 5 seconds to boot up.

    As the other reviews have mentioned, the fan is fairly active and would turn on while browsing the web, but I personally didn’t mind it. The laptop did sometimes get warm without doing any gaming too (just idling on a web browser or something). The temperature and fan software the laptop comes with (Dragon Center) let me keep an eye on things and there is a silent fan mode, though I didn’t try it out.

    RTX graphics card is pretty powerful. I ran APEX legends with high graphics and got a consistent 100+ FPS.

    What’s dragging down the rating was that I received a defective keyboard. Some keys on the keyboard were a bit stuck, and they would actually jam. After examining the jam, keys would actually come off. See my photo.

    I managed to put the keys back on, but after 3 days of use I ended up returning the laptop in person after buying it online, since this shouldn’t be an issue plaguing a $1,500 laptop. Unfortunately, I couldn’t exchange so the deal I utilized while buying the laptop is gone. Best Buy customer service however gave me a full refund.

    Other issues: I came from an MSI GP60 2PE that’s 7 years old, and I think it has a higher maximum volume and better bass than this laptop. Also, the key to turn off the backlight was not working at all (it could have been due to the defective keyboard). The keyboard build itself didn't feel very strong either.

    It’s safe to say that I’ll be looking for another laptop in this holiday season.

    Great lightweight gaming laptop and WORKS WITH VR!

    I'm going to start this review off with how this laptop performs with VR, since I see lots of unanswered questions about VR and ports not being connected to the dGPU. If VR or port connectivity does not concern you, feel free to move to the third paragraph.

    One of the biggest concerns with VR on a laptop is the ports being connected directly to the dGPU, in this case the RTX 3060. There is no way to tell this before buying, so it's simply a matter or luck or reading on other reviews. I bought the laptop hoping the ports would be connected to the dGPU, and one of them is, enough to play VR! Problem is, it's the USB C 3.2 port that acts as a DisplayPort connector. The Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI ports will connect your VR headset or display to the integrated Intel Xe Graphics and the headset will perform poor. As long as you buy an adapter that works with your headset and connect it to the USB-C 3.2 port, your headset should work fine. I tried this using my friend's Oculus Rift S and everything worked with an adapter. If you have an Oculus Quest 2, that already uses USB-C so you're set without adapters. Performance wise this laptop handles like a champ, so no worries there. It is worth noting that Oculus gave a warning that the GPU I was using was not supported with both headsets. This is because the RTX 30 series has not been added to the supported GPU list according to Oculus Support, so you can just ignore that. I attached a picture below for reference as to which ports connect to which GPU.

    VR aside, almost everything else about this laptop is wonderful. The first thing I want to note is the design, which I feel is a wonderful selling point. This laptop was designed to be ultralight, and wow it's so much lighter then my previous thin gaming laptop! Even picking it up with one hand, the laptop is super light and requires no effort at all to lift up. The laptop didn't skimp on materials either. The all-aluminum build feels sturdy and nice to the touch, with a smooth, premium texture. The keyboard has the same aluminum texture to it and feels wonderful to type on. The keys are fast and responsive in gaming, and give nice feedback when typing long documents or essays. The RGB lighting on the keyboard is single zone, meaning all the keys are the same color. You can set the laptop to toggle between colors or stay steady. The screen folds back 180 degrees, and even has a button to flip the screen upside down should you need it. Overall zero complaints here, couldn't be happier.

    Performance wise, this laptop handles great. Games like Final Fantasy XV run in 4K no problem, RTX Minecraft holds a constant 60 FPS with high rendering distance, and in VR games like The Climb 2 and Boneworks run smoothly. On the designer side of things, Blender and Abode After Effects both handle very well on this laptop. Rendering speeds are pretty much on par with my old RTX 2070 Super Max-Q I was using before I bought this laptop. If you're looking for a faster GPU and not a lighter laptop, you might want to consider another option with a RTX 3070 or better. The only thing I have to complain about here is the fans. The fans get a little loud, and have a little bit of coil while, but if I put the laptop under the desk when connected to my external monitor, I can't really hear them much. On the table right in front of me, however, when they start spinning, I can hear the coil whine. It's not too loud, but loud enough to hear. It's a sacrifice I am willing to make seeing how small the laptop is however.

    The display on the laptop looks great. Colors are accurate, no light bleeding, and the 144Hz display looks smooth. Coming from a 300 Hz laptop, I can't really see the difference, and the 144 Hz is better for the battery, so that works for me.

    The battery on this laptop is pretty impressive for a gaming laptop, although people coming from a normal laptop like a Macbook or no dGPU Windows laptop might be a little underwhelmed. On average, I get about 6 hours on "Best Performance" mode, and 8 hours on "Better Battery" mode when doing school work like Word documents and web browsing, zoom meetings, the usual school stuff. When gaming, less graphic intense games get around 3-4 hours of battery life, while high graphic games will see the battery drain in 2 hours or less. Since gaming laptops usually can't access their full power on battery anyways, the battery when playing high graphic games doesn't really matter.

    Some final thoughts on the laptop below

    -The speakers are okay. Nothing mind blowing, but they aren't bad either. I use headphones mostly, but when I'm playing music through the speakers in my dorm room, it fills the room easily while sounding nice.

    -The Intel Xe Graphics on this computer, and any other computer that uses Xe, don't always play nice with older apps. Trying to boot an old RPG Maker VX game in full screen will constantly kick you out of full screen if you use the Xe graphics, but works with the RTX 3060 perfectly fine. Also, trying to run some games on the Xe causes rendering issues. If you're having issues with these on any Xe laptop, switch to your dGPU and things will work fine. Hopefully Intel can fix some of these through a driver update.

    -The bluetooth driver that came with the laptop worked a little wonky and the built in Windows Update and Dragon Center wouldn't find the new driver. Went to Intel myself and downloaded the new driver, Bluetooth has worked fine since.

    Overall, I am extremely happy with the laptop and will for sure keep enjoying it for years to come. The only thing I would like to see fixed in a newer laptop is quieter fans. If you're looking for an ultra lightweight and fast gaming laptop, don't hesitate. This is the one.

    Great Laptop! Thin, light and Fast.

    Looking for a new laptop was a bit of a pain. The more you try and compare one to another, you think you have it and then realize you are missing something you need. This is one of the only units out there that checked all of my boxes. 11th gen processor, 3060 GPU, 16 GB, 1TB SSD, Thunderbolt ports, micro SD slot, front camera and usb ports. The main thing I do is video editing with Power Director 365. Last night I had my first chance to produce a 35 min HD video. My old laptop took roughly 55 min to do a 35 min simple video. It now took only 14 min. The touch pad is more sensitive than my old one so I will have to get used to it. Just an fyi you can change the color of the backlight on the keyboard or turn it off in the dragon center. So far I am very happy with my decision. One more thing some of the reviews of older Stealth 15 mentioned a loud fan. They may have updated it because I could barley hear it when it was producing last night.

    My Review

    I just got this laptop today. I picked it up at the store, and I installed all of the software I decided I would need. After, I took a break and ran some games that worked wonderfully with the 3060 inside it. Additionally, I love that there are so many port options that allow me to forgo having to use a hub for ports (it is a bit disappointing that there was no ethernet port, but an ethernet usb cable was included). Overall, I can say that it was a very solid purchase that will be able to handle everything I need to do.

    THIS IS THE BEST COMPUTER I HAVE EVER OWNED! I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. THE RGB BACKLIT KEYBOARD, THE METAL CHASIS, WINDOWS 11 INSTALLED AND THE FACT THAT IT IS SLIM.

    IT WAS ALITTLE MORE MONEY THEN I WAS GOING TO SPEND... BUT IT WAS DEFINITLEY WORTH THE MONEY.

    iCUE Type Lighting & Audio Vis. Non-functional.

    You want a laptop that works? This here's the workhorse you're looking for. Aesthetically, it looks great. H O W E V E R .

    While it works well for what it's worth, I bought the laptop because it was pretty. Kinda vain, sure. The iCUE software is buggy at best and type lighting and audio visualizers don't function AT ALL.

    Lenovo Tech Support claims that this device doesn't support that, but then why is iCUE even in/on this computer? I'd suggest re-teaming up with Corsair to attempt to fix this issue.

    suprisingly good

    honestly purchased this for on the go gaming and light work, over all its snappy and fast. plays Warzone between 90-120 FPS and World of Warcraft 150-300fps in spots. the IPS screen is fantastic. replace the ram with something better and you wont be disappointed especially with the small form factor it has. It's nuts the kind of performance you can get on the go these days.

    Great laptop

    Bought this before but they change the listing , all though plastic housing where the usb and and power are plugged are the weak point.

    Fantastic!

    Using this to replace my desktop gaming setup during the graphis card shortage so I can play new releases. So far this has run everything I’ve thrown at it with ease. Absoutely fantastic. Its crazy how powerful this laptop is while being so thin. Battery life has been fantastic and great to use for light task. Gaming plugged in gets you max power just expect it to get a little warm to the touch but nothing major. Would for sure buy again!

    The QHD screen is beautiful, the fan noise is fine

    This is the review of the QHD 2560 x 1440 resolution screen model (GA401QM-211.ZG14B), there are more in-depth reviews under the nearly identical FHD 1920 x 1080 resolution screen model (GA401QM-211.ZG14).

    I wanted something with a capable graphics card for 3D CAD design and a nice looking screen. The aforementioned FHD model may be better suited for gaming (lesser resolution means less strain on the graphics card during action, plus it has smoother 144Hz refresh rate) but the display model at Best Buy looked very washed out when compared to anything else in the price range. In contrary the QHD 120Hz screen in this particular model is really beautiful.

    About the infamous fan noise: it is fine even in the highest turbo setting (available only when the charger is plugged in, on battery mode performance is the highest setting). Yes, it is audible but it’s silky smooth not the rattling type like a window air conditioner or a room fan.

    Playing Fortnite in performance mode without battery saver at a vivid 80% screen brightness the battery lasts a bit over an hour and a half. Netflix with same settings runs for about eight hours on a full charge.

    The panel gets quite toasty over the rear exhaust vents, I can not endure resting my fingers there for longer than a few seconds… It is more of an observation after reading all the negative press on this subject. The top keys remain perfectly fine temperature wise.

    There is no built-in webcam and I’m okay with that. I’d rather use an external one with a physical shutter, wouldn’t risk closing one of those stick-on shutters between the screen and the keyboard.

    I find not having an ethernet port a bit more pressing issue, downloading content over wifi takes forever. Like forever-forever. USB-C to ethernet dongles go for around $20, I wish Asus included one.

    I was toying with the idea of getting a G15 or M16 instead for the larger screen and built-in ethernet port, however there appeared to be more reviews citing blown pixels and other quality issues compared to the G14.

    Great laptop and great preformance for the size

    It runs great and love the Rog booting screen. So far I like everything about this laptop except couple things. First of all, this laptop does not have Anime Matrix on it probably with this price we dont get it. So if anyone is expecting Anime Matrix for lid cover LED light animation, please get more expensive one. Second is this WiFi adaptor cannot connect to WiFi 5 right away. So you may have to change properties for network adaptor to 802.11n from 802.11ac. Finally, it is getting pretty hot while using for regular basis and there is a way to turn off some options to prevent less heat. Other than this small beast has more pros than cons.

    Good computer, though fans are loud!

    Great computer, been running Xbox Game Pass games without issues. But dang the fans are absurd! My desk is in my bedroom and I had it just downloading some games overnight and the fans were so loud they woke me up. I would be alright with it while gaming but thermal issues while just doing basic tasks is a turn off. Tried a bunch of things, checking emails, word, etc and found the fan noise to be a major turnoff.

    May return.

    I was very excited for this laptop I've been looking at it for a long time. (I recently just returned the rog16 because of keyboard problems and some high-pitched noises coming from the computer.)

    This laptop runs the games I play perfectly no lag at all with or without the charger plugged in. I really only play D2R and rogue company.. The computer gets very hot probably due to its small factor because my 7-year-old laptop doesn't get nearly as hot. But the biggest problem I have with this computer is every time I try watching videos I hear a weird speaker noise kind of like somebody blowing into a microphone. It's not all the time but it does happened during most videos. The longer videos they are the more it happens.

    Due to that I may return this laptop and not get another Asus product again. So far 2/2 products I bought from them had some kind of issue..

    Amazing laptop

    This laptop will take everything you throw at it with ease. As well as

    play high end VR with the oculus quest 1 or 2. Ive tried bone works,

    blade and sorcery, half life Alyx and the forest all ran great and looked great. Be sure to put your headset to 120hz and up the bit rate and resolution. I have also tried Horizon zero dawn on steam which also plays great. All and all a great laptop with a lot of power.

    Defective individual

    Zephyrus 14 is a good model, It may be the only model that is less than 4lb and has 3060 graphics cards at the same time.

    However, what I received was a failed individual.

    When I plugged it in for the first time, the charging light and two other indicator lights were on. But the power button does not work at all. The screen did not light up, and there was no ROG shown, totally black. I tried to remove the power cord and plug it in again or other methods many times.

    I found information that static electricity may cause this situation. Need to fully discharge the motherboard, which means I have to remove the power cord and battery, and then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. However, Zephyrus's battery is built-in, and I cannot perform these operations.

    It finally turned on successfully suddenly and unexpectedly.

    In the next week, after I shut it down, there is a half chance that I won't be able to use the power button to power on again in normal way. I have to press and hold the power button for a few seconds to completely power off it in some way, and then turn it on.

    After I did some research, some forums offered some experience:

    1. Turn off the windows fast boot option

    2. Update the latest graphics card driver

    3. Update the motherboard driver

    However, none of above works.

    I wanted to replace for a new one, but best buy does not have this option. In the end, I returned the product, and the FedEx package cost me $8 extra.

    I really like this model, but the black screen at startup seems to be very common in forums. I hope the manufacturer will reply me the reason for the black screen, so that I will be confident to buy the same one again, or I will buy another laptop.
