Reviews for the Asus Zenbook 14X UX5400E

Asus Zenbook 14X OLED pre-production unit review: That's some punchy colors! | Notebookcheck
The 14-inch laptop from Asus combines a stunning OLED display with a first-class case that is both sturdy and high-quality. Performance should also be great thanks to the MX450 and a Tiger Lake SoC from Intel. Read on to find out what we liked and disliked about the pre-production model.
91% Asus Zenbook 14X OLED (UX5400) Review — A Throwback To The Past
Source: Pokde English
I would say that 14″ laptops are probably the sweet spot for me. Not too large to use on a lap like a 15″ one, and not too small that it becomes hard to work on like 13″ ones. So when the ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED came around for me to review, I was definitely looking forward to have a good time. It is pretty much the evolution of ASUS’ older ASUS Zenbook 14, into the age of 16:10 displays, while also featuring a secondary display. Yes, the OG ScreenPad is here again!

78% Asus Zenbook 14X OLED review (UX5400EG) – Breakthrough Ultraportable Design Refined and Redefined
Source: Hitech Century English
All said, the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED is a breakthrough design that is a step above its peers, offering an excellent blend of performance in a compact, highly portable form factor that makes it ideal for general computing, content consumption and light content creation. While the lack of upgradability, middling battery life and slightly quirky port allocation are causes for concern for power users, it doesn’t detract from its appeal and its fair price tag as it offers a vastly better OLED display, top of the line hardware and even an entry level GPU than even the somewhat similarly equipped Expertbook B9 B9400C for a modest increase in weight while retaining the compact form factor. The Asus ZenBook 14X OLED redefines the boundaries of what a thin and light laptop ought to be with a superb display and excellent performance along with a good array of ports as well as a novel ScreenPad. The only quibble here is the middling battery life though it’s more than sufficient for an extended work meeting out of the office and back.

ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED 5400 Review – Stunning display, great performance, but at what cost?
Source: The Tech Revolutionist English
Here’s the deal: if you’re always on the go and are looking for a laptop with an excellent battery life, the ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED isn’t gonna do it for you. The laptop would not make it through an entire workday without a charge. For the budget-conscious, S$2398 isn’t exactly pocket-friendly too. However, the price is justifiable given that the laptop offers discrete graphics and an OLED screen. For reference, Dell’s latest XPS 13 does not come with a discrete graphics card despite being in a similar price range as the ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED. All things considered, the ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED brings to the table a top of the line screen and outstanding performance – if you don’t move around too much, it is a solid laptop that is worth considering.

Review – ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED UX5400E
Source: Tech Critter English
Our top-of-the-line ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED with Intel Core i7 is officially priced at RM5999, meanwhile, the Intel Core i5 model starts at RM4999. Even though the Core i5 model is more than enough for the thin-and-light laptop use case, we are ultimately limited by the 8GB RAM which we had no choice but to get the Core i7 CPU with 16GB RAM. The new OLED screen is a splendid upgrade for the ASUS laptop lineup. ASUS is fully committed to this upgrade that basically sets their laptop apart from the rest of the competition. If you’re a fan of OLED display, ASUS should be the only brand whereby you can choose one from the top ZenBook lines to the affordable VivoBook series. As for the ScreenPad, I personally think it is still a gimmick. Unless you’re using the laptop with an external mouse, chances are you will not use the laptop with the ScreenPad turned on. It overlaps with the trackpad function whereby the trackpad overlay will basically cover up all the contents and it is so much of a hassle to switch it all the time.

70% Asus Zenbook 14X OLED Review: A Cool But Impractical Laptop
Source: The Verge English
The Zenbook 14X OLED is a fairly affordable way to pair a 90Hz OLED screen with a GPU. Despite various nitpicks I have, it works well enough as a driver. The problem is that another laptop exists — the Vivobook Pro 14 OLED, with a very similar chassis, a very similar screen, and a better GPU — at a significantly lower price. I’m actually wondering if Asus and Samsung got wires crossed here because it makes no sense that the Zenbook costs so much more, so I’ll be keeping an eye out for any changes as we approach the release. The main thing that could potentially justify the Zenbook’s price premium is its fancy touchpad. I really do like that Asus is doing this touchpad. I like that there’s a company out there trying things like this that are new and different — and that those things actually work. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is, as someone whose job it is to test a million laptops a week that are all basically the same thing, to know that there’s a company out there trying to figure out where they can do things differently.

80% Asus ZenBook 14X OLED review: A showstopping display
Source: Digital Trends English
Asus has gone all-in on OLED laptops. It introduced the cheapest laptop you could buy with an OLED display in the Asus ZenBook 13 OLED, which we have named the best laptop under $1,000. It put two OLED displays in the ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED. And it even introduced the first Windows detachable tablet with an OLED display in the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED. The company even includes OLED in a laptop’s name, underlining what it considers to be the essential feature. That’s the case with the ZenBook 14X OLED, a laptop that will arrive in early in 2022 with — you guessed it — a high-resolution OLED panel.

Asus ZenBook 14X OLED review: A showstopping display
Source: Digital Trends English
Boiled down to its essence, the ZenBook 14X OLED is a well-built 14-inch laptop with robust performance and a spectacular OLED display. It’s easy to recommend on that basis alone, but it has some nice extras like the ScreenPad 2 touchpad that comes in handy if you’re willing to take some time to learn its various uses. It’s not perfect. Battery life is mediocre, perhaps not crossing our all-day threshold, and it’s a tiny bit expensive. But taken as a whole, it’s a solid addition to the growing herd of 14-inch laptops and is worth a place on your list. The ZenBook 14X OLED is a great 14-inch laptop that competes strongly against its competition.

85% ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED review: The gorgeous display comes at a price
Source: Hardware Zone English
Where the ZenBook 14X OLED disappoints is in its battery life. No matter how you look at it, at just over five hours, it’s one of the poorest showings in its class. Sure, you could probably stretch its battery to six or even seven hours if you dial back the brightness but it doesn’t hide the fact that a ZenBook 14 Ultralight with comparable system specifications lasted nearly 70% longer. Thermal throttling is a concern too, though, to be fair, it’s a problem that plagues all notebooks of this class. However, it’s something to note especially if you intend to run intensive applications like gaming or video-editing for extended periods. Ultimately, the ZenBook 14X OLED’s well below-average battery life means it’s probably not for everyone. And luckily, our great ultraportable notebook shootout shows that there is no shortage of alternatives But if it were me, I'll opt for the ZenBook 14 Ultralight. It's cheaper now (S$2,198) and while it's display is no where near as nice, it counters with slimmer, lighter dimensions and excellent battery life.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
