Reviews for the Asus Zephyrus Duo 15 GX550LXS-HC029R

86% ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 review: The first good dual-screen laptop
Source: Engadget English
The ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is the first laptop to really make good use of a second display. That gives it not only a strong wow factor but makes it easier to justify the extra expense. ASUS backs it up with top flight components that help it fly for gaming and content creation tasks. The downsides are mediocre battery life, a lack of key ports and a high price tag. If you can afford it, though, you’ll be the envy of all your friends, whether in a creative or gaming environment.

The twin-screen Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is the rare laptop that does something completely new, and executes it well. It's priced out of reach for the average user, but we applaud this peek into a possible future for gaming notebooks.

Source: T3 English
The Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is an impressive but not a perfect laptop for gamers and creative professionals – it scores highly in performance, but can get hot and loud. That second screen could be the main reason why people do or don't buy this gaming laptop.

Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 GX550 review: Two screens and a whole lot of speed
Source: Good Gear Guide English
There’s a lot to unpack with the ROG Zephyrus Duo, but we’ll start with the performance. If you believe us that the subpar performance on light gaming tasks is probably a temporary issue, the takeaway is that it’s very fast for its weight and stature. We suspect as we see another three or five 15-inch laptops with similar part combinations, most will settle down closer to the Gigabyte Aero 17 or MSI GS66 Stealth in performance. Asus’ use of liquid metal and better cooling paths simply makes it the laptop to beat, and we’re not sure others in the same class of laptop can do that.

The Asus Zephyrus Duo 15 GX550 may yet turn out to be one of my favorite laptops of 2020. By the time I've finished testing we'll see if that sticks or if familiarity breeds contempt. Stay tuned.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
The ROG Zephyrus Duo is unique right now, a fairly portable 15-inch laptop with two excellent displays and the most powerful hardware available at this point in its segment. As expected, though, all these don't come cheap. We're currently retesting a retail Zephyrus Duo unit, and we'll finalize the review in the next couple of days.

All this work Asus has put into the ROG Zephyrus Duo would be meaningless if it weren't worth the effort to have a second display. The primary display in our case is a 15.6-inch 60Hz 4K panel. It's factory-calibrated, G-Sync-certified, and can hit 100 percent of Adobe RGB. It's not particularly bright at a measured 300 nits. Asus offers this as a compromise for those who want to do content creation on the laptop. That's fine, but for a gaming laptop, we think the other option might be better: a 300Hz 1080p display.

The Asus Zephyrus Duo GX550 is an absolute powerhouse of a gaming laptop with one of the most imaginative designs we've seen in a while. However, a couple of missteps and a high price make it hard to recommend to anyone but a very specific type of user.
