Hi. I've just sold my G75VX which served me very well & am due for an upgrade. The ASUS G750JS-TS71 from TigerDirect caught my eye and was wondering if anyone would share their experiences with the laptop. Saw this post earlier http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?48937-Buzzing-Humming-Noise-Coming-from-G750JS-TS71. This isn't common right?

niesh, you might PM kraver0 or jetrian and ask him about where he got his, it sounds like he got it a brick and mortar as he got quick turnaround - so likely not TigerDirect. His replacement also had the problem, so at least that batch has the noisy backlight.

We haven't seen any reports of that problem before his and jetrian:

But, you might call TigerDirect, explain your concern, and make sure you can return it without a problem should yours have the same noise.

The cure for something like that in the past has been to change the refresh setting a HZ or two off of 60hz to change the beat frequency - it can reduce the strength of the noise, but the Intel Optimus configuration doesn't support refresh / custom resolutions, so I didn't suggest it... I don't know if it can be fixed without a parts change.

No other JS configs have had this problem either... you could look elsewhere for another build of the JS. IDK what model/build G750 jetrian has...
