Reviews for the Asus TUF FX504GE-US52

74% ASUS TUF Gaming FX504 Review
Source: Think Digit English
The ASUS TUF Gaming FX504 is a great gaming laptop given that you’ve got the additional 2 CPU cores for no added money. That with the NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti and the 120 Hz panel make for a much better combination. As for gaming experience, it isn’t completely out of this world as one would expect because of the improved CPU. The display panel is average but we’re not complaining because you get a 120 Hz panel at the end of the day and that’s better than the usual combination. Even with the design, there have been a few welcome changes with the clean surface on the right-hand side and the improved cooler. However, we don’t believe that the overall design is any “tougher” than what’s usually found in this price range. At the end of the day, the FX504 offers way better value for money and that alone should be convincing enough for most gamers.

Model: The Asus TUF FX504GE-US52 is part of Asus’ TUF line of gaming laptops that are priced to appeal to gamers on a very tight budget, while still bearing the aesthetic of the high-end ROG line of gaming laptops. However, it comes with a few sacrifices, including lack of a USB Type-C port and short battery life. Instead of a plain design, the new iteration gets a few red flourishes on the outer cover, the same extends to the palm rest as well. Also, the corners are now fairly sharper than its predecessors from last year, giving the system an aggressive, gamer look . That’s just about the only difference that’s separating it from Asus’ other line of gaming laptops. The underside has a few similar markings along with roughly one half the area occupied by intake vents. The laptop is easily serviceable once the 11 screws are removed. There are four rubberized feet to give the ASUS TUF FX504 some traction as well. Speaking of the lid, the hinges are fairly standard and rigid. And the unit opens up by 140 degrees at its widest. Most laptops in the range tend to open by about 120-135 degrees, so they have a slight improvement here. The system’s 15.6-inch Full HD display features In-Plane Switching (IPS) which is better compared to Twisted-Nematic (TN). An In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel is preferable over Twisted Nematic (TN) technology, as it offers wider viewing angles and delivers better quality colors.

The keyboard comes with red backlighting and follows the full layout. The arrow keys jut out from the layout making them easy to locate. As for the switches, Asus says they are rated for 20 million key presses and actuate with 62 grams of force. The actuation point for the keys is said to be a bit higher than the average switches found on most laptops in the rage. As for the touchpad, it’s fairly huge and has both buttons integrated within the same body. The surface texture is smoother and different as compared to the rest of the palm area and the matte finish works better with tracking. The ASUS TUF FX504 uses a 128 GB NVMe SSD from Kingston which is just about enough to house the boot drive and perhaps a couple of other software. As for the hard drive, we see Asus is using the Seagate FireCuda 1TB SSHD. The laptop is outfitted with a quad-core Intel Core i5-8300H processor and a single 8 GB DIMM installed. There’s room for another RAM module, too. This laptop gets a standard selection of I/O ports, including three USB ports (two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0), an HDMI port, an Ethernet jack, and mic-in, headphone-out, and line-out jacks, as well as an SD card reader. The system also features Bluetooth 4.1 and dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity, as well as an HD Web camera.
