Review – ASUS Vivobook 16X M1603QA
Source: Tech Critter English
At this point in time, this laptop is still at RM2,999. I think this laptop is fantastic. Great performance, decent battery life, good keyboard and trackpad, and a massive screen – just that the screen quality itself is kinda subpar. If you’re okay with the screen, then I think this is an okay laptop. However, I’d like to see a price drop.

80% Asus Vivobook 16X (M1603) Review – Simple Workhorse
Source: Pokde English
At RM2,999 – the ASUS Vivobook 16X certainly does not ask a lot of money for good amounts of CPU performance, but some corners are cut so you should not ask too much out of it. I’d say the best use case would fall under office work – those who do mostly typing and data entry that needs a bigger screen will benefit a lot from this machine with a relatively low price point. If you need a better content watching experience though, go for the Vivobook 15X OLED instead.

The ASUS VIvobook 16X M1603 is another addition to their workhorse Vivobook range that combines an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H CPU with a large 16-inch LCD display at a modest price point. If you’re looking for a budget laptop for light computing and don’t mind the cheaper display, this modest workhorse is worth a look.

Source: Laptop Mag English
The Asus Vivobook 16X is a big, cheap laptop — for better and for worse. It’s a little slow for anything beyond casual productivity and the plastic shell can feel a little cheap to the touch. But all of this makes it a fantastic home laptop for the whole family.

ASUS Vivobook 16X (M1603) review – a product with a high value and low price
Source: Laptop Media English
When you want a laptop that has the performance of a big gaming machine, you need to make sacrifices. Especially if you want it to be affordable. Well, this is exactly the case with the Vivobook 16X (M1603). Its IPS panel has a WUXGA resolution, 16:10 aspect ratio, comfortable viewing angles, and a good contrast ratio. Its backlight doesn’t use PWM for brightness adjustment, but on the other hand, the color coverage is only 50% of the sRGB color gamut. Although the laptop is made out of plastic, it has one strong feature when it comes to the body – its coating. ASUS has covered all body panels with an antimicrobial layer, which attracts all microbes and then kills them off. Quite sadistic, but also beneficial. In addition to that, the port selection is robbed of an SD card reader, while the USB Type-C port can only be used for data transfers. Also, some of the memory (8GB to be precise) has been soldered to the motherboard. Further expansions are possible via the single SODIMM slot. In terms of battery, you get between 8 and 10 hours on a single charge, depending on your activities – watching videos, or browsing the Web. Using more demanding software, however, will drain it significantly more quickly, due to the power-hungry processor. Speaking of which, it is really powerful. Even though it is a couple of generations old, one can still reap the benefits of AMD’s bold design back in the day. So, if you are looking for a machine that is capable of delivering all you need, at a low price, and still allows you to play light games – get the Vivobook 16X (M1603). Don’t miss to check out the OLED version of this device.

ASUS Vivobook 16 (X1605) review – affordability comes at 16 inches
Source: Laptop Media English
Hey, 16-inch laptops are now affordable. And they don’t suck! The Vivobook 16 (X1605) is a pretty decent machine with only a few minor flaws that can’t be ignored, but at the same time won’t be dealbreakers for the majority of you. This includes the lack of an SD card reader and the fact that the only USB Type-C port can only be used for data transfer. On the bright side, the situation on the inside looks a bit better with one SODIMM slot for memory expansion and one M.2 PCIe x4 slot for Gen 3 or Gen 4 SSDs. The battery life is great if you’re browsing the Web – 10 hours and 30 minutes, but it is not fantastic if you are watching videos – 5 hours and 30 minutes. Unfortunately, we are not aware what is the reason for the huge difference. Not in last place, its Antibacterial Guard limits the growth and build-up of bacteria on the plastic surface of the notebook. This feature is tested against the ISO 22196 standard, according to ASUS. Now, if you are willing to get a laptop at this price point, you might need to settle for plastic as a building material.

72% Asus Vivobook 16X OLED Review: Roomy OLED Laptop for Less
Source: CNet English
Getting a roomy, high-resolution OLED display at this price feels like a steal, but you'll need to make a number of tradeoffs to get away with it. The flimsy plastic enclosure is the biggest concession you're forced to make, and content creators looking for an affordable, big-screen OLED laptop will need to limp by with integrated graphics and only 512GB of storage. And the tinny speakers limit its appeal as an entertainment laptop. We recommend stepping up to the Pro version if possible. It's roughly $350 more, and you get the same great display with better build quality, faster processing and a discrete GPU for beginner content creation. For $300 more, the Acer Swift Edge offers a 16-inch, 16:10 OLED display inside a slim yet rigid magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis. It also regularly goes on sale at Costco for less than $1,000. Or if you don't mind a smaller display, consider the HP Pavilion Plus 14, which comes in many configurations at more affordable prices.

80% Asus Vivobook 16X review
Source: Tech Advisor English
However, with powerful performance, gaming-level graphics and a 120Hz display, battery life isn’t the best. During testing, I was getting between two and six hours of usage on a single charge, depending on how many demanding tasks I was doing. At its absolute limit, when converting a large video file, it lasted just over an hour. An extreme power-saving mode can stretch battery life to a full working day, but it becomes difficult to work when performance is much more limited. Keep the charger handy at all times.

60% Asus Vivobook 16 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Asus Vivobook 16 offers an expansive 16in laptop experience for well south of four figures, which is a welcome proposition. However, that display isn’t especially vibrant or accurate, which robs the laptop of some of its multimedia potential. What’s more, a puny battery, just the one USB-C port, and a rather cheap-feeling finish saps a fair amount of that initial full-sized laptop pizazz. Heavy discounting means that anyone specifically in the market for the largest laptop screen possible at the lowest price possible will definitely want to include the Vivobook 16 in their calculations. For the vast majority of people, however, you can get a better-balanced laptop package elsewhere.

70% Asus Vivobook 16 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
At £700, the 16-inch Asus Vivobook is no slouch in the most average situations a laptop can find itself in. It’s light enough to carry around, with a power brick to match. It won’t buckle under the virtual weight of too much admin work. This laptop does start at £600 for the Intel Core i5 version, and it might be a worthy compromise for those looking for straightforward productivity use. With lacklustre speakers and a hinge that stops short of helping it become a good entertainment companion, however, there are just a few too many compromises here to truly recommend it at this price point. The 16GB RAM is this model’s biggest strength in terms of raw power but competing devices are hard to ignore with the HP Pavilion SE 14 providing a more modern processor for less money as well as a better speaker system.

Overall, for the price of just RM3k, this is a decent laptop. It’s just that the screen is a bit disappointing. However, if you look back at ASUS’s other older laptops – like the ASUS Vivobook M1503, then you’ll get a much better OLED screen at around the same price, and you get a much more powerful CPU too – but less RAM and a slightly smaller screen.

16.00:

This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.

73.94%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
