70% Asus N550JV review: an attractive multimedia laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
The slow hard drive is a cost-cutting weakness in a laptop costing almost £1000, and leaves it looking expensive in a crowded market. Nonetheless, the N550JV is an attractive multimedia laptop with impressive audio and video capabilities that could make it suited to presentations at work, or entertainment at home.

90% ASUS N550JV Laptop review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The ASUS N550JV is a really nice all round performer. The other two recent high specification desktop replacement laptops we’ve looked at - the Toshiba Satellite P50t-A-10U and HP Envy Touchsmart 15 - have had their own issues to hold back a full recommendation, the N550JV rarely puts a foot wrong, only really struggling with a slightly fussy touchpad. True, it has half the RAM of the other two, but we always thought 16GB was overkill on those machines, and the performance is pretty similar anyway according to PCMark and Geekbench 3, and in gaming the N550JV steals the show with a better graphics chip and performance not too far removed from the more expensive Alienware 14. It also manages to pack in a Blu Ray drive, which neither of the others do for the same price. It’s an easy recommendation, given each retails for the same amount - though of course there are bargains to be had below RRP. The ASUS N550JV is a good all round desktop replacement laptop which comes with solid games performance and premium design and build quality.

We had high hopes for the N550JV, and it’s true to say there are very few areas for improvement. In an ideal world we’d dump the touchscreen in favour of a little less weight and a lower price, but this is a minor nit-pick. Asus has struck a superb balance between all-round power, ergonomics and features, at a price that isn’t too steep. A well-deserved place on the A List awaits.

Asus NV550JV 15.6in full HD notebook - the one we didn't have to send back
Source: Reg Hardware English
Yet for Asus, the cost of having a touch of B&O looks like it could be off-putting, especially as the benefit only really comes into its own with the SonicMaster sub-woofer attached. I'm sure other manufacturers could source USB sub-woofers for a mere £35 extra if it was that important, and USB is much more elegant than the mini-minijack on the Asus. If Asus really wants to impress, it should be working with B&O to deliver a decent bass response from internal speakers. And if that's too hard, then it might as well give up on this partnership premium and use the money saved to compete on price.

Asus N550JV-DB72T

Asus has always been a famous name in the computer and laptop industry. The Asus N550JV-DB72T is just another one of their great innovations made to replace desktops. The laptop comes with a 2.4 GHz i7-4700HQ processor, which has a rather mighty raw processing power. Coupled with 8 GB RAM and 1 TB of hard disk space, heavy desktop users should not face any issues switching to the Asus N550JV-DB72T. To boost it all, the Nvidia GeForce GT 750M will ensure that gamers are also happy with this laptop.

The 15.6 inch screen is great size for a desktop replacement. With a screen resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, users can watch HD videos with full clarity. The Asus N550JV-DB72T is also equipped with multiple speakers which makes watching movies on this laptop truly enjoyable, as if there was a sound surround system. Sadly, it does not come with a Blu-Ray drive. The Asus N550JV-DB72T is heavy. However, it more than makes up for it with its specifications and performance. Besides, it is meant to be a desktop replacement, so its weight and battery life should not be expected to be the same as laptops made for mobility.

In a nutshell, the Asus N550JV-DB72T is probably one of the closest desktop replacement models Asus has come up with. However, for some weird reason, the laptop does not support 5 GHz Wi-Fi modules.

When all's said and done, N550JV proved to be a quite interesting device. You get one of the best designed laptops that we've ever seen so far. There's also the top-quality screen, metal chassis, wide range of connections, external subwoofer, but also a strong hardware base that powers all of that. If they used a more powerful graphics (or rather, its memory), we wouldn't have had any real objections.

In spite of needing to stay close to a wall charger, we found much to like about the Asus N550JV-DB72T. This model is well served by its attractive, high-end design; logically situated buttons and ports; and brilliant, high-resolution touch-screen display. The one part of the Asus' performance that disappointed us was its battery life—about four hours in our admittedly tough video-playback test.

Watching movies on a tablet is well and good, but to get real immersive entertainment, a 15.6-inch laptop with multiple speakers like the Asus N550JV-DB72T is the portable equivalent of a home theater system, plus it also qualifies as a power user system.

The Asus N550JV-DB72T is one of the best desktop replacement laptops we've seen in PC Labs in a while. It's equally at home consuming or creating media, and it's a great choice for the demanding power user. Its 1080p HD screen, benchmark performance, and other features trump our previous Editors' Choice, the Asus VivoBook V551LB-DB71T, with only an $80 premium. Therefore the Asus N550JV-DB72T is our new Editors' Choice for midpriced desktop replacement laptops, and comes highly recommended for the demanding user that is willing to spend a few more dollars for extra power.

The Asus N550JK is a practical laptop that is also a dab hand at games, especially given it costs a bit less than most gaming laptops. It's not very portable and the version with the lower-end display is one to avoid unless you really don't care about image quality, but otherwise this is a good buy.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

4700MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.389 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.7 kg:


82.85%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
