Reviews for the Asus Strix GL504GM
A hero for the masses. Excellent performance sustainability and a beautiful 144 Hz IPS display make the GL504 one of the more impressive 15-inch gaming notebooks in the market. A couple of missing features prevent the system from being a "must have" for the mainstream gamer.

The Asus ROG HERO II certainly looks the part with its sleek chassis and flashy RGB lighting. The 15″ display and slim body makes this a very solid gaming laptop to be used on the go.

There's very little not to like about this 15-inch Asus ROG Strix GL504GM. The build, the keyboard/touchpad, the display, the speakers, the hardware and especially the way this device performs in everyday use and with games are among the best you can find in a mid-range full-size laptop. But there are still some quirks you'll have to accept, as well as the fact that this computer is more expensive than most other alternatives with similar traits.

The ASUS ROG STRIX SCAR II GL504 is the result of ASUS listening to user feedback. The first-gen GL503 wasn’t a bad laptop at all. In fact, it was a nice change to see a manufacturer add more value to an existing lineup by specialising laptops based on the genre of games that the consumers tend to play. With practically everyone in the market providing the exact same hardware, there arises a need to add more value and with such SKUs that are built for a genre, ASUS is filling that void. The camera being a non-important element for gaming, has been a significant compromise.
