Reviews for the Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 SE G733CX-LL016W

80% Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 SE Review
Source: Kitguru English
The end result is a superb laptop that answers all the important questions and which does a fine job. Most of the negative points we raise are inherent to building a high end gaming laptop, so yes it is large, and yes it is heavy, and yes the power adapter is chunky. It is also unfortunate the cooling system blows hot air on your mousing hand and takes up space that might be used by the ports and connectors but we can understand the thinking that led us to this point. The one unforgivable sin that Asus has committed with the ROG Strix Scar SE is the removal of the webcam which obviously belongs in the top bezel of the screen.

90% Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 SE Review – The Most Powerful Gaming Laptop of 2022
Source: Laptop Under Budget English
With a retail price that is pretty close to $4000, the ROG Strix Scar 17 SE is not for everyone. It is for those who want absolute cutting-edge technology and top-tier performance in a laptop form factor. While you can build a far more powerful PC for less than the retail price of the ROG Strix Scar 17 SE, you won’t be able to carry around that machine as easily as the Scar 17 SE. Overall, it’s an excellent performing device with great thermals and a highly recommended laptop from us to professional gamers, streamers, and content creators.

70% ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 SE review: performance for the ages
Source: 91mobiles English
The ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 SE is one of the most powerful laptops for gaming. Yet it lacks a webcam or any kind of biometric authentication. Speakers and battery life are not that great and neither is the device’s portability. However, it has most of the elements that make a sound performance-oriented machine. The gamer aesthetics outside and other aspects easily make it one of the most flamboyant laptops you can buy. One thing that has to be thought thoroughly is whether your gaming needs require you to spend Rs 3,99,990, which is the price of my review unit. There are other very capable machines as well that may not be so processor-intrinsic, but make up for it in other areas. If your goal still remains to get the fastest machine money can buy, then the Strix Scar 17 SE is the laptop to beat.

80% Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 Special Edition review: Ultimate portable gaming
Source: India Today English
The Strix Scar 17 Special Edition is the ultimate gaming machine. It features the looks that can turn eyes and the performance to run most titles without any hiccups. However, at the price of Rs 3,59,990 (our exact variant costs Rs 3,99,990), the laptop is one costly affair. I recommend this for purists who want the absolute best in terms of specifications and aesthetics. For those looking for something more practical, you can consider the regular Strix Scar 17.

90% ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 SE G733C review – Roar power
Source: Htxt Africa English
What we’re about to say is going to sound mad, but R75 999 is justifiable given how good the 2022 Strix Scar 17 SE is. Yes, it’s a massive amount of money, but having spent two weeks with this notebook it is absolutely worth that price. For your money you are getting an unbridled gaming experience in a slick package. Games have never looked or performed so well and we can’t help but feel that we weren’t able to take full advantage of this machine in the short time we had it despite exhaustive testing and late night gaming sessions. While it’s tough to give the 2022 Strix Scar 17 SE a perfect score given this isn’t a notebook anybody can just buy. However, if you are looking for a notebook and have R80k to spend, ASUS has created a beast in the 2022 Strix Scar 17 SE and we highly recommend it.

Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 SE (Special Edition)- the most powerful ROG laptop (i9-12950HX, 3080Ti)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
All in all, I’m glad Asus are once more competing with the heavyweights in the segment of high-performance laptops. They didn’t revive the massive desktop-replacement G703 series of the past, so the Scar 17 SE is not as powerful as it could have been in that kind of chassis. However, it is a balanced option in this mid-sized design at under 3 kilos, and the kind of product that should better cater to the needs of current potential buyers looking for a high-performance notebook, but without requiring two power bricks and a gym membership to lug around when needed. I do look further to find find out more about the pricing of the SE series in comparison to the regular Scar 17, and especially in comparison to the competition. ROGs are usually competitively priced in most markets, so hopefully, the Scar 17 SE won’t diverge away from it. From what we know right now, the laptop should be available in stores around June 2022, so we’ll update once we know more about it. Anyway, that’s about it for this short first look at the 2022 Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 SE series.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.
