My girlfriend has this laptop since it came out. It's quite clear that we're dealing with a consumer laptop and not a business oriented model. I opened it to upgrader the RAM, put an SSD, move the HDD instead of DVDRW, change battery. Here are some opinions with issues and general info:
- lots of incompatibility with RAM modules, I barely found some that work...
- every time I open the case, some piece of plastic falls off from inside, very interesting....
- issues with Power-ON button, now it needs to be pressed really hard to fully turn on the system, or else it turns on only the LED ...
- hinges broke already after 2 years
- keyboard and touchpad overly uncomfortable
- original ASUS batteries very expensive...
- her laptop came with Windows 7 Home Basic (really...bad)

Good points:
- nice screen..
- fast processor, if you add SSD
- good audio

Hi !
Excelent review, but i cant find that passage where you sayd "i dont know if the Num Lock button is activated or deactivated because have no light to show you this. The Caps Lock button, have no led to detect if is activated or deactivated, it have just la low led near near HDD led, wich you cant see it, because is to low and not in keyboard visibility range.
Thank you !

Could you please say what is the exact score for professional sRGB and AdobeRGB coverage? In same reviews there is exact gamut coverage in % given whereas here you just say that the two are not covered by the display. Thanks.

Hi, Im planning to buy either the latest hp envy 15-4rth Gen J series non touch HD laptop or the ASUS n56vz. My only concern is that the ASUS N56 laptop is quite heavy when compared with the HP. I do not have much reviews about the HP J series. All i know is that the audio of HP is incredible. Would you recommend ASUS N56vz over HP J series.

Dear all,

thanks for the review!!
I just wanted to give some feedback about this laptop. I've had it for over a year now and am very very happy with it. Almost everything is great about it. The list of negative things is much shorter than the positve list, thus a couple of things that could be better: It's really annoying to change the volume of the speakers since the "fn" key has to be pressed as well as "vol-up / vol-down" (couldn't find anything to change this in BIOS or anywhere else) and the spacing from the "rest of the keyboard" to the "up/down/left/right"-keys. Otherwise great great machine for a very good price.

You could try to uncheck the option "allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties" in hard drive properties, which you can see here:
Worked for me on Win7, the hard drive got a bit more quiet.

Can anyone please answer me. I have asus n56v but this is not quite. There is noise coming from the hard disk. I took it to the service they changed the hard disk but I can still hear the noise, it is like the noise you hear when you just start the computer. Do you also have the same noise.

price/quality and considering all the options you get from this product I can with most certainty say that it is an amazing laptop. although I had a problem with mine, Nvidia was faulty so after just a month of usage I sent it to repairs. haven't received it back yet but as long as it gets fixed I shall be satisfied. you should definitely get one of those, you can for only 1k euros. I wont be saying how good it is overall since other comments have already described it. only real problem is probably the fact that it is so slim, which means that it's cooling system has real difficulties and I have noticed the issue indicated in the review about it being too damn hot and loosing its power. just get a good cooler, with flow directed into the vents like I did and everything will be OK.

I have the 3630QM with 16gig ram (8 + 8) variant. Sadly, our variant here in SE Asia has no backlight. But in terms of performance, this has got to be the best bang for buck gaming system. And it looks gorgeous too. Most gaming laptops are dark and alien-like looking (Alienware is very expensive too). This one is elegant looking, and the sound quality is awesome.

A very  powerful  and quiet laptop. Quite enjoyable. Two points regarding the keyboard: the arrows disposition is a bit surprizing and takes some time to get used to. I also miss the of indication of Num lock and Uppercase, which could have easily been incorporated into the keys to preserve the beautiful design.

Really amazing analysis.
however, I think the temperature is a little high.
During playing games, the core and GPU rise above 70 C. the left side of the touchpad is really hot.
suprisingly, there is almost no noise from the computer, sometimes I wonder if the fan of the laptop really work. lol

I found a different setup for this computer, 3630QM with 12gig ram (4+8) with 650m  4 gig card.  I was wondering whether it was a little bit too much for this computer.  Any comments?

I am looking to do the same, which screw did you remove to take out the blu-ray drive? Thanks!

Hey guys, I am loving my Asus N56VZ.  I modded mine with a harddrive caddy in place of the bluray drive.  I added a 120gb SSD for the OS and programs and it is VERY QUICK!  It runs a ton of programs at the same time (including large photoshop files) and I rarely have to wait...ever.  I ended up sticking the bluray drive in an external case so I can still use it.  Love this notebook!
