Fatal BIOS Problem

Pros: Seems to be well built and has very good spec's, but as it turned into a nonfunctioning brick, it is relatively useless at this point

Cons: I received the product, set it up and began updating/installing software. After installing a critical windows update, I restarted the laptop and it ran a bios update. The bios update bricked the laptop. I can get to the bios menu, but once it gets to the static ROG logo with the spinning dots, it freezes and will not recover.

Upgrading the laptop is problematic. There is only one M.2 hard drive slot, with no ability to add a secondary drive. The ram is also limited to upgrading from an 8gb stick to a 16gb stick, leaving a total of 24 gb. Surmountable obstacles, but there is limited potential.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this laptop to others until the BIOS issue is confirmed to be fixed. It is bad enough to be a product recall
I have returned the product and will be shopping for a different model. Asus has been my favorite laptop brand, but between this issue and my previous laptop (G751) not accepting an ASUS OEM battery replacement, I have my reservations at this point.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Daniel C,

We appreciate your feedback on this matter and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. All ASUS products are manufactured with materials that comply with industry's quality standard and each one undergoes intensive quality control testing and inspections, this is a random problem. If possible try reflashing your BIOS to version 304. ​If the issues persist, feel free to contact me if you have any technical or general questions. You can reach me at cl-adrian@asus.com.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best Regards,
Adrian

Made for traveling gamers...

Pros: - Light weight, extremely thin
- Run fairly cooler than most under heavy load
- Innovative design with the expanding cover
- Powerful, and runs everything I play
- Neat right handed mouse touch pad that doubles as a number pad

Cons: - Battery life (expected as I feel it's purely made for a plugged in traveling gamer)
- Not great on non flat surfaces because of the expanding cover (also expected)
- Sound/Speakers have random loud or soft moments from same volume sound..pretty sure it's a bug/defect, but I played plugged in most of the time so it's not an issue for me.. sometimes my sound gets splatty from this bug at 20% volume

Other Thoughts: Hello, I'm a hardcore gamer that travels for 3 months a year for work. My way of recharging from work / burn out is to play games and so I need a light weight thin laptop that's powerful enough to support my gaming needs. This laptop contained all that I need to fulfill this--powerful graphics card and processor, a beautiful 144hz screen to mirror the one I use at home, and thin portable, but innovative cooling design that works great hopping around to different hotels/locations.

I've used this on a plane (power plugged in of course) with a controller on a flight across the ocean before and this laptop fit on the standard United Airlines economy seat. I've used it on a train in Korea (also plugged in) and it fit for that too. I wouldn't recommend using this laptop not plugged in as you get about an hour ish of battery for basic usage. I also would not recommend using this laptop on uneven surfaces as the plastic on the bottom that expands feels like it would bend in an unwanted shape if I left it on an unbalanced/even surface for too long (ie. bed, my lap, etc).

Do not get this laptop if you're looking for at home desktop replacement, mobile non-plugged in gaming, or for 'college note taking' laptop. While I believe it's great on the road plugged in for gaming, I would not recommend it for any other uses due to its poor battery life and philosophically I do not believe anyone should be gaming long term on any laptop.

their bios update will break your laptop causing shut downs and power on issues

Pros: It was working fine despite they advertise it as a vr laptop and use an outdated hdmi port that only support 60mhz and most decent wmr, oculus and vice support 90mhz.

Cons: This will be my last asus product, won’t even buy their motherboard for desktop from now on. How can they release a bios without tested. I’m leaving negative feedback and let everyone know about this on every single website that’s selling this piece of garbage. They literally broke my laptop with their bios update.
