Reviews for the Asus Strix GL503VM-GZ128T Hero Edition

ASUS ROG STRIX HERO EDITION GL503VM Gaming Notebook Review
Source: eTeknix English
The storage performance is pretty decent, fast enough to get you into your bigger games in a reasonable time, but not so fast you can’t read the loading screen tips, ha! The USB performance was under what we hoped for though, but it does seem to be a solvable driver issue and something we expect to be an easy fix with a patch. The inclusion of some punchy speakers, the LED lit keyboard, and comprehensive connectivity all sweeten the deal though. Overall, the Hero isn’t cheap, but it’s very competitive in terms of features and a good return on your investment.
