70% Asus STRIX ROG GL553VD laptop review: Game on!
Source: Gadget Show English
Weighing at 2.5 Kg the Asus STRIX ROG GL553VD laptop is not a machine you can lug around every day. Nevertheless, it is a good option for gamers who want portable performance (at times) or want to participate in a gaming night out with friends. Yes, there are a few drawbacks to the machine like the battery life and an unpredictable trackpad; but, these are not deal breakers. What can play a spoil sport is its price. At Rs 1,36,990 the Asus STRIX ROG GL553VD gaming laptop has stiff competition from MSI, Acer and Dell.

60% Asus ROG Strix GL553VD Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The $1,099 Asus ROG Strix GL553 is the most affordable gaming laptop that the company currently sells, and it comes with a comfortable keyboard, a vivid display and an Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU. But the laptop's subpar speakers and finicky touchpad are serious trade-offs.

90% ASUS ROG Strix GL553VD Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Tech For Pennies English
There is no reason to skip ASUS ROG Strix GL553VD if you don’t have all the money in the world to spend, but still want to have decent gaming experience on a laptop. The GTX 1050 card is not really a beast, but can hold proper frame rates if you can skimp on few settings (yet use 1080p resolution). Because of the 15-inch display, this unit is also tad smaller than its bigger brother, so perhaps more suitable for carrying. Just note the battery life on all these models is subpar compared to non-gaming notebooks. Anyway, for its core job – to keep players happy – this ASUS is a right tool!

Source: Tech2 English

90% ASUS ROG Strix GL553VE Gaming Notebook Review
Source: Tech For Pennies English
ASUS ROG Strix GL553VE is a newcomer to the Republic of Gamers family and it doesn’t seem to be a useless addition at all. The Asus does its main job, which is to keep players happy, well: you can throw all kinds of games at this rig without worries of low frame rates – especially if you need not maximum settings on every single one of them. Other components are in check too since there is a new 7th Gen Core i7 powering the system and SSD serving your files fast. The only blunder, which is common in all gaming systems, is poor battery life. If you don’t care about that there are no real drawbacks. So choose this ASUS ROG as your new laptop, that is my advice!

80.3% Asus ROG Strix GL553VD (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Pricey budget gamer. Budget gaming notebooks are becoming increasingly popular thanks to GPUs like the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050, and Asus has decided to throw their hat into the budget ring with the GL553VD. The notebook packs modest hardware into a well-built chassis with some nice extras, but are these factors worth the additional cost?
60% Asus Republic of Gamers Strix GL553VD-DS71 Review
Source: Computer Shopper English
The Asus RoG Strix GL553VD is a competent 15.6-inch gaming platform. It has just enough power to play the latest games at 1080p, all the while running quietly and looking good in the process. It has other notable upsides as well, such as decent speakers and respectable battery life for a gaming notebook.

ASUS ROG Strix GL553VE review – do the extra features justify the higher price?
Source: Laptop Media English
Let us put it this way, if you have the extra cash, we strongly recommend going for the ASUS ROG GL553VE instead of the recently reviewed Lenovo Legion Y520 or Acer Aspire VX 15 (VX5-591G). We still have to do a review of the GTX 1050 Ti version of the VX 15 to be fair, but our opinion of the Legion Y520 remains – it’s still the best one considering the value. However, the GL553VE excels with a crisp IPS panel, far superior to the one we’ve tested on the Legion Y520 and offers a customizable RGB keyboard with overall better feel and comfort and more importantly – far better cooling solution.

87% ASUS ROG STRIX GL553 (GTX 1050) Gaming Laptop Review
Source: B2G English
Contrary to the majority of the ROG family, the ROG STRIX is a more subdued design and barring its glowing ROG logo, its more conventional in terms of design and physical attributes. Build quality is passable as average but we do note ASUS’ distinct detailing on the tooling, rubber feet and other particulars which allow them to distinguish this model than the mainstream line.
