Asus TUF FX505DU-MB74
Reviews for the Asus TUF FX505DU-MB74
ASUS’ TUF FX505DU is miles ahead of its plastic-clad brethren. The notebook feels tougher, more premium and feels better put together than its cheaper sibling. And thanks to a better processor and GPU, it’s more capable of taking advantage of its 120Hz panel, though you’ll have to lower graphical settings a little bit to go past 60 frames reliably. The tradeoff here is that the TUF FX505DU is significantly more expensive, coming in at Php 71,995 for the configuration that we reviewed.

The ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DU is an excellent gaming laptop with decent performance and great display. It also has connectivity sporting two USB Type-A 3.0 ports; however, I expected more like putting at least one USB 3.1 or a USB Type-C port. It is also worth noting that the audio quality is terrible as it lacks bass and the sound gets distorted when putting it at maximum volume. You should also watch out for its thermals given that it has three exhaust vents installed. Despite that, I like how it has a premium look and feel, as well as a little screen and keyboard flex, indicating that this device is very durable and well-built.
