I bought an ASUS G75V in early 2013 when I needed an upgraded system. It's been mostly fine, and I doubled the memory, which was nice.

Now the darned thing has come to a point where the video shuts down seemingly randomly, and then the audio shuts down. It is not 'Sleep mode' because I can't pull it out of sleep mode with the <ctrl> + F1 commands. None of the FN or <ctrl> keys work to pull it out of the dark mode once it has gone into that mode. The only option is to reboot using the power key. I have contacted their help and have gotten bad-to-worse advice. None of their advice works. The only thing that seems to work is to put a cooling fan unit on the bottom of the laptop and let the fan run all the time the system is in use.

I have already updated the BIOS, updated the video, and made sure that all of the Windows updates are installed (WHICH could be the real problem). So, I am stuck with this thing. Will have to wait to replace it, but probs not with another ASUS.

So tired of sound problems. Other than this it's a fantastic gaming laptop. However based on the sound issues I don't think I'd buy another one.

I just got my G75VX yesterday. It really rocks, i recommend it highly because of its good price/performance ratio. The 670MX is the only "weak" point of the G75VX, so if you can live with that (like me), buy it.

I am very pleased with ASUS G series. I have a G53 and hadn't have any problems. GTX460M can pull almost anything but Metro on ultra. Machine is still quiet and reliable. Buy a G series and you are ready for several next years.

Don't buy this crap! A couple of years ago we bought an expensive Asus G71 gamer notebook and the screen was defect and went to repair and now it's already too slow for gaming. Now we - unfortunately - have bought this expensive new G75VW, got it today - and it is not it is not working properly! Never Asus again! Obviously Asus do not have quality control programs.

3D on a laptop, virtually useless.  Optimus on a laptop, essential.  Dump the 3D, keep the 'good' screen (or add a matte IPS option already), and add Optimus back in.  But still not really interested until the kepler 680M is available.  Cooler and faster then this rebranded old GPU.

Asus, you are offering a matte IPS screen option with your UX31 ultra book, why can't you offer the same with the more expensive G75?!?

Loving it.

This laptop will definitely be staying with me for the next few years.

There are just so many ways a prospective buyer can dissect, analyze, and draw conclusions without using the model.  I bought the G75VW with the GTX660M card, O/C'd the graphics card somewhat, and had serendipitous results: framerates very high, GPU temps low to ay most (on my machine) 62 degrees in an intensive gaming scenario (Not running Furmark Prime etc.).  The machine is elegant, the keyboard is a vast improvement over earlier models, and the HD 1080p matte screen at 17.3" is virtually unsurpassed.  Price/Performance ratio, thus far, is outstanding. I'll run a series of benchmarks are post them this weekend.
Best wishes to all

With new Samsung 7 series coming out with 675M in all configs, this will not sell very well, I'm afraid

Except for the mistaken dedicated graphics card, adding to price, heat, noise and overall reliability - and perhpas despite the bulky unit - this notebook looks indeed as the optimal:

- Light in keyboard
- Dual HDD
- Blu-ray
- Matte screen
- Quiet running ( wo dedicated graphics card )?

A combination which is rare to find.

In general - why would one even think of integrating a fan and a dedicated graphics card to a notebook using an Ivy Bridge and a native integrated HD 4000 graphics card. If you are a hard core gamer - get at tower PC. Suugh - now we have to wait for models without dedicated graphics cars and noisy fans. The silly graphics card "only" heating up to 76degs and which in 1-2 years may trash the notebook because of melt down. I also miss a test where the dedicated graphic card and its fan has been firmly disabled/thrown out.
