Reviews for the Asus A555LF

70% Asus A555LF Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English Archive.org version
The A555LF has a few shortcomings such as the low-resolution screen and the plastic build, which is a little flimsy in some areas. We also wished Asus had used a slightly bigger battery and thrown in an HD webcam. On the plus side, the laptop has good aesthetics, a comfortable keyboard, decent casual gaming performance, and a very good set of speakers. This makes it a good mainstream option for those unwilling to breach the Rs 50,000 price barrier.

Model: The Asus A555LF is a perfect on-the-go companion with capabilities and a solid build quality. There are 4 colors to choose from; red, black, blue, and white. Design is kept simple with each lid sporting different finishes from circular texturing to line texturing depending on the selected color. There is a black Chiclet keyboard surrounded by the silver interior. The Windows 10 system comes with a 15.6 inch 16:9 HD display, which works well in bright surroundings.

On-board are an Intel Core i5-5200U processor clocked at 2.2 GHz, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GT930M GPU with 2 GB of DDR3 VRAM and a 1 TB HDD. Audio quality is impressive despite slender chassis with high quality stereo speakers boosted by SonicMaster technology. Other features found on the Asus A555LF are Bluetooth 4.0, a super-multi DVD drive, a VGA webcam, a VGA/mini Display port, 2 USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI out and card reader. Overall, the laptop weighs in at 2.3 kg and comes equipped with a 4-cell Polymer battery, which ensures an adequate battery life.

NVIDIA GeForce 930M: Maxwell based lower mid-range graphics card. The card is based on the GeForce 840M with 384 shaders but reduced core clock speed.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

5200U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. is a major Taiwanese computer hardware manufacturer based in Taipei, founded in 1989. Under the Asus brand name, the company manufactures a wide range of products, including laptops, desktops, motherboards, graphics cards, monitors, smartphones and networking equipment, complete systems and PC components for end users.

Under the ROG (Republic of Gamers) brand name, ASUS manufactures gaming laptops known by gamers for their powerful specifications, dedicated graphics cards, high refresh rate displays and advanced cooling systems.

Beyond gaming, a wide range of notebooks are offered for different needs and budgets, from ultra-slim and lightweight ultrabooks to versatile 2-in-1 convertibles and budget-friendly options. In 2023, Asus had a 7% global market share of the PC market.

Customer satisfaction with ASUS notebooks concerns performance, the features, and the good price-performance ratio of ASUS notebooks. However, as with any brand, there are occasional reports of problems such as overheating, driver compatibility, or build quality issues.


70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
