Reviews for the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402NU
Source: Laptop Media
The ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402 (2023) is an impressive device. We purchased a modest configuration with a 1600p IPS panel, a Ryzen 7 7735HS, and a GeForce RTX 4050. Even with this hardware, the notebook performs excellently. The machine can be dead silent for daily usage if you select the “Silent” preset in the Armoury Crate app, and it transforms into a true gaming laptop with the application of the other two power modes. Note that the fans create a lot of noise in Turbo mode. The 1600p IPS display (TL140ADXP02-0 (TMX1401)) fully covers the sRGB gamut, and we achieved 98% DCP-P3 coverage. The unit is also PWM-free, has wide viewing angles, high maximum brightness, and a good contrast ratio. It becomes very color-accurate with our “Gaming and Web design” profile, reaching an average dE score of just 1.0, a great improvement compared to the out-of-the-box value of 2.5. We have zero complaints regarding the input devices. The keyboard is comfortable for both work and gaming, and the touchpad is smooth and fast.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
