    The ROG G -Best LapTop on the Planet. No? Why?

    The G Series Laptops are the top elite gaming laptops in the world, bar none.
    They are ROG, we demand that they be.

    I read most every new post that comes on this forum.
    The finest piece of hardware on the planet
    wimpers with less than of it's 'in class' keyboard/pad/button
    quality..and a minor few other annoyances..
    ..with all due respect Asus...please remedy this
    or strip the ROG branding from her and put it on the
    pile with the rest.

    This forum is flooded with this daily...I am the last to
    offer anything negative..This is why I speak out now.

    This damages the brand, causing hesitation in sales
    slowing research........and considering the other
    AsusTech at your discretion...there is no reason for it.

    Time to take a real hard look @ your supply/vendors.
    Turn SuX to XS.... who names these things?...hahahahaha

    Offered with all Due Respect
    And in all fairness I know the sold/happy user units
    far exceed those spoke of here/ but here are the true enthusiasts.

    I surmise that you have become the "proud" owner of a ROG notebook and have "seen the light" . . .

    No Sir...It is on the list. My wife and kids have a longer list, but I am
    sure I will get to my list one day...i remain greatful to be allowed my V.

    BUT...I read. I see your and BrodyBoy and others banging out the same
    answers...cheerfully i might add...time and time again...and it has to stop.

    It is jumping over $100 dollar bills to get to 35 cents...Now the next guy
    'aint' drop'n the next Hundred... and it is wasting the brand image...over what?

    Lets not get it twisted....I would buy no other...what would be the point.

    But when you pick up a G74 in your hands you know you got something special..
    the fire it breaths when you hit the power [yes i have touch'd..mmmmm]]
    but.....well...it is obvious...
    somebody cheated the parts bin....
    this should be as the rest of it...WorldClass...
    or get the ROG Off......

    Im stash'n a few pennies at a time...when i finally stroke my ROG...I need her to G.

    [[To tell the absolute truth--Ill never give up a ROGdeskTop....the ZenBook excites me..
    When they get to ROG ZenBook...I want this issue 2 b history...18.5"yikes!!!!..I want it.]]

    Asus ROG -- The Best -- or it's NOT ROG....make it so.c.

    Hopefully Asus isn't as deaf, dumb, and blind as they seem to be and they will fix the next generation of RoG notebooks, but that doesn't help us, who trusted Asus to sell us something great. The keyboards and touchpads are so badly constructed and/or implemented that Asus should replace them in ALL of the effected models, but I don't see that happening anytime soon because Asus notebooks become orphans as soon as they are purchased, when it comes to any kind of meaningful support.

    I only lurk here, now, because I'm got tired of telling users the same thing over and over with no hope of anything better on the horizon.

    Thats what has to come to an end... and what i am trying to say.

    This would be the best money Asus could spend to lock in
    the top gamer book spot....
    the proof would be in the sales of the next 2-3500 dollars masterpiece.

    its a grand grand piano -- it should have worthy keys....

    Surprised you comment is still there....... made a comment about ASUS seems to have given up support on the G74, and it got removed lol


    To the OP.... its a really good laptop, I think they should give us new touch pads for those that have to ability to install it themselves (meeting ASUS in the middle)..... don't know what the big deal is with the keyboard, works great maybe i got lucky......best feature by far is the top inlet for the fans, and amazing cooling

    It can be a better laptop if the G74 had ANY SUPPORT from ASUS........ We're not asking for a lot just BETTER BIOS, BETTER TOUCHPAD...... In the automotive aftermarket performance industry, companies would have made good already...different standards in the computer world i guess :S

    ASUS G74 owner since August 2011......waiting for support that... may never come ?

    Mine too...my G74 is solid with no keyboard issues save for its complete lockup when the touchpad is disabled in BIOS...
    WIFI has been exceptional. Screen is phenomenal. Touchpad way too sensitive, but does what it is supposed to do and I have gotten used to it. Sound is OK, but I would have expected more out of a top-line gaming notebook. Battery life sux, but in its weight class it was obviously not designed to be away from the wall and on the lap anyways. BIOS is, well, my telephone has more programmable options....

    Gotta say I like it. But the stories here scare me honestly: as I ramp up to using the thing more and more for my daily work, I am really afraid it is going to show a hidden fragility that we are maybe seeing here in these forums. And then it really sounds as if one is screwed, since the support will be minimal and mediocre.

    Thats the worst part of my G74 experience so far...waiting for a breakdown and then knowing what to expect, which is next to nothing.

    Thats what i am saying..it, they..the series..the company..best on the planet..bar none.
    seems minor for what is at stake...

    and with all due respect..if you place a comment and it was removed it was
    not because it was negative..i can point to closed threads for hard core
    non sense flapping [[brian use to call it--mindlessly bashing asus instead of being
    resolution based]]]---
    it probably got buried in the forum with no replies..and the sheer volume of
    posts..
    if you go to your profile..and search all your post..you should find it..
    ....RePost it..and lets get it resolved...answer it yourself..bump it back up top.
    ..moving forward...

    ive seen every issue of all kinds get resolved....almost...bringing us full circle.
    ...touchpad/keyboard...its embarrAssing..really....
    .....thinkWorldClass...or GlobalClass if you prefer.

    How big of a $$$ hit would this be...and would the owners be interested in
    a ROG @cost upgrade...even though...blah blah fair blah...
    to move forward to G94's or whatnot....????? hmmm???

    BoostedR....RePost.....if...laStuff happens or bump..u got our interest now..
    dont leave us hang'n....coldROG'n.

    DONT LET "STORIES' SCARE YOU--Let me set it straight...LIMPING..
    G's are still the best available..it just is..
    it has a black eye...but it will kick the stuff'n out of anything else..it just does.

    ***EDIT***
    in example...i just clicked..."new posts" GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGnoOffenseGGGGGG

    Wasn't me. If I delete something other than spam or an oopsie I will send a PM with an explanation. JR has made lots of negative comments and they all stuck AFAIK so perhaps it was the context of the comment? Obviously it's not true and you wrote it to express frustration but if a new user could mistake it for truth one of the mods might have deleted it for that reason. *shrug*

    I went through many, many months of dealing with the touchpad and keystroke issue. It is now 95% fixed. But even when I thought there was no hope of a non-RMA fix, I STILL saw my G73JH as something special, and have never regretted departing with the $1,500 it cost me 16 months ago.

    This is like any other product based consumer forum. You concentrate those who have issues with their product, thus it appears the issues are pervasive. I have a friend with a G73JH-A1, I have the A2. He has had no issues at all at this time and bought his 3 weeks after I purchased mine.
