Hello,

I am a current owner of the G53jw. The power jack pin has broken for a SECOND time on my rig and I don't understand how it could break again when I keep my laptop stationary always. Anyways I do not want to spend another 150$ for a replacement that will just break again in a couple months. So I am looking at purchasing the newer G750jw but am very hesitant because of the poor build quality I have experienced on the G53jw. Does anyone know if the build quality is different on the newer versions? I would be quite dumbfounded if they haven't fixed this issue yet which has caused so much hassle and disappointment for so many customers. I may just go with the msi GE70 if the build on the asus g series power jack is still extremely cheap quality.

Sorry to hear about the power jack pin issue :S

I own a G750JH, so the build quality should be very similar to a G750JW and since my friend owns a GE70, I am able to give you estimate between the quality of the build of the two, and in my opinion, the G750JH is a lot better, the way it feels in my hand, the way it looks on a table and so forth :)

I know I didn't give a good answer, but as long as the power pin goes, it's thick as hell on mine :)

I have a G750jw and i constantly plug it in and unplug it as i carry it on short trips with me when you plug it in its a very tight connection and it is even a little hard to unplug it seems to be a very good build quality.

Great, thank you! Sounds like they fixed the issue, before it was this cheap little pin that broke off when it got too hot or something.

I had a G53 & a G74, so I know of the power plug issues you speak of. I bought that "L" connector that a lot of people recommended for both my G53 and G74.. it helped a lot to reduce strain on the plug.

But back on topic about the G750, it is different and much better imo. The plug is larger and has a large body on the outside of the male portion, so the strain is not put on the pin, but on the housing and the case since they both are flush with one another. A LOT better design then the previous plugs. I haven't heard of any being broken on the G75/G750, so I would say you will be safe. Much improved imo.
