Before I buy the VT model, what are the well-known issues that the laptop has? I only know the screen may break during the delivery process.

There is a common issue with external hard drives connected to the left USB ports disconnecting at random.
There is an issue with the laptop not recognizing the g-sync feature until you load default settings in the BIOS.
I have seen some complaints about the right side of the keyboard not having LEDs active, but there is specifically a way to turn them off, so people might have just disabled them by accident.
Getting a second m.2 hard drive to work in a RAID 0 configuration has been problematic for some people.
Some people have reported atrocious battery wear levels after a really short time, but I haven't had this problem.
There is some bloatware, but not too much.
And there are the common issues that come with Windows 10 being stupid, but that is hardly isolated to the G752 line.

I've thoroughly enjoyed my G752VT aside from some Windows 10 stupidity.

I've just updated my sticky guide about Windows installation (https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?76993-Guide-How-to-install-windows-8-8-1-10-The-proper-way-(UEFI-based-installation)&p=538710&viewfull=1#post538710) - i've added a part #4 about windows 10 tweaks.
Please see if any of it help you out - and please reply in the linked thread about it, and leave this thread for G752 specific issues.

It was an issue that arose when I updated my BIOS and went away when I downgraded to the previous BIOS version I was using. While it was still a Windows 10 process that was the problem, the BIOS update for the laptop seemed to be at the heart of the matter.

Sonic Studio audio settings don't work on G752VY, probably also on VT: you can't improve default poor audio quality coming from speakers.

ON G752VY there is also a degraded performance issue with M.2 connected drive after Sleep mode only: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?84587-G752VY-issue-with-M-2-speed-after-resume-from-sleep&p=587143#post587143
Not sure on G752VT though...

Confirmed on G752VY (and G751JY) too..
