So it for sale to purchaser. i am very scared it not going to be the glossy screen 3d model but i am going order it anyway and see what happens. Here the web sits to buy and any info on this would be great and by the way i just called ASUS and asked if they could conform the screen and the rep could not conform if it was a matte or the glossy 120hz screen but he did say he think it the glossy but he could be wrong and was not able to pull up any notes or information on the screen on the screen.

fab5yo, it clearly states in the brief description and in the specifications that it is the non-glare (matte) display. And mentions nothing about 3D or Glossy.

ASUS G750JH-DB71 Intel Haswell Core i7-4700HQ (2.40GHz) Processor, 17.3" Full HD (1920 x 1080) *** Matte LED Display ***, 24GB DDR3 1600MHz Memory, SSD RAID (128GB SSD x 2) + 1TB Hard Drive, Blu-ray Burner, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4GB GDDR5 Graphics Card, Microsoft Windows 8 64 Bit, Thunderbolt, Killer WLAN, Illuminated Keyboard

Display & Graphics
LCD Display 17.3" Full HD (1920x1080) LED non-glare Display
Graphics Controller NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
Video Camera HD Web Camera

If you, like me, want the glossy/3D 120hz display we will need to wait.

You can email / call excaliberpc and discuss it with them directly to avoid disappointment. They will likely not ship till tomorrow - US companies are closed now overnight and ship the next day.

Generally you should call the distributor(EXCALIBERPC) instead, not the manufacturer(ASUS) as they should know the exact specifications of the SKU that they are selling. And if you look closely at "Highlights" under the General section of the specifications you can clearly read: 17.3" Full HD (1920 x 1080) Matte LED Display.

OK friends at ROG i cancelled my order and i will call them to see what up before i buy. but i think there going to tell me that they can not check the box which would say if it a matte, glossy 3D 120hz screen on the side and just say the spec are from Asus. which are not accurate most of the time. The only i would know is if one of the reps at ExcaliberPC went and look at the Asus laptop box not buy the spec from ASUS

Find the configuration dash number that has the 3D 120hz screen, and then the vendor that is offering it, and order it from them after confirming by phone/email what they are actually shipping.

Please post back here what G750JH configuration dash number has the 3D Glasses/Screen - IDK right now myself :)

Each box has a long label with the exact items that are included in the configuration in the box, including the screen and whether it has 3D Glasses (required if it has a 3D screen), etc. If the box doesn't say it has 3d Glasses, it doesn't have a 3D screen.

Asus spec are accurate, but you must persist in finding the exact spec on the box that is going to be shipped to you before giving them a pile of $ :)

The G750JH-DB72 on amazon says a 120hz screen is ***optional***, but doesn't say anything about including 3d Glasses, so you will need to ask them to get the box and read the contents to you over the phone or send you a scan/photo of the list via email to verify before ordering.

And, silly as it sounds - ask them to send you the box that they read the contents from and not another box from inventory :)

IMHO there is nothing wrong with the matte screen. Loving mine for gaming (don't require 3D). Even my wife who has zero interest in "quality" saw me playing FFXIV and was impressed so much she wants her glossy screen changed on her XPS lol!

OK friend On ROG this U.S. model JH dose not have a Glossy 3D 120hz screen. I had a Rep from ExcaliberPC check the book for me and he conformed that there was no where on back and the side sticker say any such information he said all it say 17.3 FVW 1920*1080 matte screen So i ended up buy the G750JX-TB71 for 1499.99 and i think i got a great deal for what i got with this model compared to DB71 JX that cost 1899.99 i was not willing to pay an extra 400.00 for a ssd and non blu-ray drive. I can add a SSD later but who know I think i won't need it since my JX has 750gb (7200RPM) sound good to me.

... So i ended up buy the G750JX-TB71 for 1499.99 and i think i got a great deal for what i got with this model compared to DB71 JX that cost 1899.99 i was not willing to pay an extra 400.00 for a ssd and non blu-ray drive.

Good choice on skipping the bundled SSD, for the same price you can get a nice Samsung 840 PRO 512GB or a Samsung EVO 1TB SSD - and SSD does make a big difference in performance - even a fast 7200rpm hard drive is like using a spinning rock for storing data ;-)

What I did was to clone the original 750GB drive to an 840 PRO 512 using Macrium Reflect Free Edition.

I needed to resize the DATA partition down to make room for the Restore partition, like this:
26115

The G750JX-RB71 model, which only has 12GB and a DVD drive, I bought for the same $1499 you paid, so you got a great price. :)

FYI, note that the original DVD drive seemed pretty flimsy, but it worked ok the couple of times I used it. I swapped in a LG CT40N BDR drive.

You do know that the model you got doesn't have a 3D screen / Glassses? So far I haven't seen any 3D G750 configs offered in the US.

I hope you enjoy your JX as much as I am enjoying mine :)

Thanks hmscott for being on my side and Yeah i know but i just couldn't spend the extra 400.00 on JX-DB71 and the extra 1000.00 on the JH which really only had a blu-ray burner, the GTX 780M and 2*128SSD RAID 0 which i feel is a rip off for 1000.00 more. SO i am so glad i went with THE G750JX-TB71 and it my first gaming laptop and my first time getting in to PC gaming. So i feel i'm off to good start.

The cost of difference for the 780m part plus the increase in cooling and case changes to accommodate the 780m is probably most of the cost bump, but it is worth it. It's hard to fault Asus for including a RAID SSD in their highest performance laptop.

The bump up in price for the Asus config is ok with me, I have paid much more for much less performance in the past. $2200-2400 is a good price for the config.

Always a consideration when swapping OEM parts for your own parts: to send in the laptop for support you need to swap in the OEM parts before sending the laptop in for service. If you aren't doing lots of hardware work all the time anyway, it can be a bit of a pain to do it.

Seeing as this is your first high end gaming laptop you got a great start :)

I feel you and i understand what your saying. Maybe on my next gaming laptop in about 3 or 4 years ill buy top of the line. But don't know which one yet. Before i bought this Asus. I was looking at the MSI GT70 and also Alienware 17 . But the Alienware was way to much. It was going to be like 2799.99 with all the thing I wanted which was GTX780M Blu-ray drive and 120hz 3d budle plus tax. So that going in to the 3000.00 range with a 1 month wait. The MSI looked pretty good as spec but i really don't know much of the brand. So i went with the ASUS and i am happy but i really won't know till Tuesday when i get my JX and do all the ASUS updates and Nvidia update BETA 326.80 also thinking of doing the windows 8.1 but not sure yet. Any heads up to look out for as updates ect. would be very helpful. Thinks hmscott and everyone here at ROG for taking the time to look at my thread

It's great that you're happy with the matte screen, but it's clear that you've never experienced the profound smoothness of gaming on a 120Hz display, otherwise you would know exactly why people are so insistent on having that option available. IMHO, there's no point in having a top of the line GPU if you're effectively framerate limited by a 60Hz display. It's a shame that Asus thinks so little of their potential customers that they don't even deem our concerns worthy of a response.
