I'm happy with my G752VS. I can tell you it's exceptionally quiet in both idle and gaming. I think it helps that the vents point straight out the back and not the sides like other brands.

I didn't buy the cheapest laptop, my ROG was more than MSI or Gigabyte. What I got though, was a better value. For my purchase, I spent $100 more and got a 512 GB SSD (vs 128 and 256GB) and I got an IPS display. MSI at the $2K price point only had a TN. So I spent more and got more for it. I'm quite happy with the gaming experience and performance of the laptop, but I was pretty let down by Asus support. Just keep in mind that unless you live near a support center, you'll have to send it in for a few weeks for issues you have. I have a minor issue with my power supply that it would trip a GFI breaker on another separate electric circuit. Asus wouldn't just trade me out a power supply but instead told me that I had to send the whole thing in to them, at my expense. Yeah right. I literally shut power off to the house and swapped the lines in the breaker panel left to right so that the GFI breaker was on a separate feed.

I have a G752VY. Most unreliable laptop ever, the screen and keyboard were changed after 5 months, and now (2 months later) the screen is failing again. There is a constant popping sound from the speakers which is standard on all rog laptops, and the biggest issue is that alot of games stutter and lag when installed on the HDD. The only solution is to install them on the SSD, which is limited. I will be upgrading the storage soon at my own expense. This is the most unreliable laptop/pc ive ever built/owned since the 90s. At the ASUS repair center, i had to queue behind 3 other people who were sending 2 phones and 1 laptop. This was in the middle of the week, at about 4pm.

I cannot in the right conscience recommend this brand to anyone. Whatever your choice though, i wish you the best.

For me personally, I have had no issues so far with my G752VS. I have read quite a few threads about the display quality, perhaps this issue doesn't apply for my laptop as it has a 4K @ 60Hz, which is of a different make than the FHD ones (ASUS quotes color quality as the primary difference).

The laptop does have some odd issues (this is ASUS install; not a clean OS install), but all of them seem to disappear immediately after I execute 'powercfg /energy'. This might be related to some of the preinstalled software; haven't had the time to do a serious investigation.

The gaming performance is truly good (this is a laptop, after all), as can be expected from something with GTX 1070. Under a heavy load, the fans are definitely audible, but I have had laptops that do much worse with a single fan (even when disassembled and any dust removed). When not under a load, the laptop is silent.

I am using an external keyboard and mouse, so I cannot comment on the quality of those.

As far as the HDD stuttering is concerned, I have had run into this issue on another laptop, when I had a game on an SSD with the screenshot folder symlinked off to the HDD. Saving the first screenshot would lock up the game window for a few seconds.
Still, I would advise against putting HDDs in the laptop, if possible. After all, you will be paying good money for it, so why go cheap on the storage?

I do have the speaker popping sound on every unmute, and as you can see, it's a typical issue that is likely not going to be fixed/resolved/dealt with. You'll just have to decide if you can live with it.

But it is. 75hz IPS screen by LG. A really common screen for top laptops in the last 2 years or so. A good screen.
Someone used the "IPS" screen as a plus. That could be a mistake. I would accept the MSI GT73VR TN 120hz panel instead of my G752VS IPS panel. But either way, its a good panel.

On-Topic. Its a good laptop. The performance is almost desktop-level, and it has a great plus. Its really quiet (for a high-level gaming laptop). That is why I bought it and returned a similar-specced Clevo. Its aexpensive for what it offers, but I would recommend it anyway. It has some quirks with the usb's, over-voltage and Quality Control, but if you get a good unit its a great machine after proper dial-up.

I'm getting 14k+ firestrike on my unit and the temps are well controlled. I run hours of witcher 3 (everything maxed) and its a joy.

You can get a lemmon unit, but that can happen for any of the competing laptops. I would also consider the GT73VR from MSI, if the price is competitive where you are. ;)

That's interestig. As there was so many complaints about the g752vs-xb72/8k being miss leaded on the ips panel, I thought it couldn't be possible unless its replaced. Nonetheless, it's a awesome gaming laptop so far for me! I've got the oc edition but I uninstalled gaming center and still managed to get 13,590 fire strike :).*

Ps. Miguel, I've sent u a private message, if you got time, take a look :) TY for your help!*

Thanks to every one for the replay.
I bought already the model G752VS-RB71, have to wait a weak more or less...
I have a G751Jt-DH71 and I got 50+FPS on witcher 3 with everything ultra without hairwork.
Do you think that it could be posible to play this game with everything ultra + nvidia hairwork at 60+FPS?

I currently have the g752vs oc edition, no gaming center, throttlestop @ 3.8ghz with -90mv. Full ultra without HAIR 60fps with cpu at 80c and gpu at 73c(3-4horts gamplay temp). My previous set up was -100mv with full ultra and hair at 60fps, cpu 85c, gpu 73c BUT it crashed after just 10minute. I'm not sure if it's the -10mv differences or the hair work causing cpu temp spikes that crashed it. I'll get back to you once I do another 3-4hours with hair work at -90mv tomorrow.

Back to your question: Yes, highly possible. *

Yep, mine is definitely an IPS, and it's a plus. I personally can't tell the difference between 75 and 120 hz. Ok, I can tell the difference when it's side-by-side and a demo running that highlights it. In game, I can't tell a difference. And Even more honestly, I'm going to turn up the graphics settings on every game to the point that I'd never hit 120 FPS. On the other hand, I have a gorgeous display with amazing color reproduction, no ghosting, and perfect viewing angles. I can adjust my screen to suit the enviroment and glare, rather than in the narrow angle that I can see a TN panel.

IPS is worth it in my opinion, and I sincerely doubt I'll ever go back.

Hi there! I also want to have the ASUS ROG G752VS and I think I may be getting it. What I currently have now is ASUS G751JY 17-Inch Gaming Laptop (http://www.laptoprunner.com/best-laptop-for-gaming/). The laptop handles like a workstation and plays like a gaming PC. Extremely happy with this purchase. Really happy with the connectivity on this thing. 4 usb 3.0 ports is great when you have to have multiple development boards hooked up at once with a mouse or phone, etc. Full size HDMI and a gigabit ethernet port are excellent additions too. I keep accidentally opening the blu-ray drive every time I move the laptop. Haha, I'm getting used to it, though.

Well, I use ultra + HAIR on mine and I get 75fps+ almost 100% of the time. The screen is 75hz, so I just use g-sync for when it dips. I think I've never seen less then 70fps on witcher 3. ;)

I've got +100mhz on the GPU and 3.8ghz on CPU.

Hi every one, I got the laptop already (ROG G752VS-RB71) and is a really amazing gaming laptop. Performance is really good with the gtx1070 on this laptop...
But there is a couple of problems I have notice and I don't know how a expensive machine like this laptop is having those stupid problems.

1-asus gaming center not saving my profile (every
things go to default settings after a reboot).

2-screen quality is very bad, I mean it dosn't look like a FHD screen.

3-I have had 4 Asus's laptop model and without fear to be wrong this laptop have the worst sound ever seen before.

If some of you have the G752VS-RB71 and are not agree with me about those problem please let me know.

Hi there.

There are lots of YouTube videos that review the G752VS. Check them out. If possible, go and see one in person.

I have the G752VS-RB71 and have been mainly very happy. I upgraded from a G750JH to the G752VS-RB71 at the end of September 2016 an it is by far way better than what I had. I can play all my games at Ultra settings and the laptop doesn't break a sweat. I do have some minor annoyances (mostly driver issues) with my new laptop but nothing that would make me return it or RMA it.

It is expensive. But since I do not have room in my home for a full gaming desktop, this fit's my needs quite nicely.

If anyone tells you that the sound on it sucks, they are right, so just get a good pair of gaming headphones. Problem solved. It is a laptop after all and I have never expected great sound from one.

Also, since you will likely be using the G752VS for gaming, get yourself a good gaming mouse too and disable the touchpad.

Back to gaming for me!

I think it depends on priorities and use cases whether the G752VS is the right choice for you. It's clearly a desktop replacement, if you need something lightweight and portable, buy something else. If you want outstanding performance and are not planning to carry it around frequently, it could be a good option.

I didn't have any serious issues with it yet. I can confirm all the known pros and cons of that machine and for my specific needs I don't regret my choice.

It had its ups and downs, for me. Performance and Loudness were amazing to start with, and still are. There were downsides too - problems with the backlight, wrong HDD settings after UEFI resets.. you have to crank most Sonic Studio Settings way up for the speakers to sound decent (my standards are too high).

There is a bunch of "mandatory" things you have to do - reinstall Windows to get rid of the bloat, remove the Gaming Studio Profile to fix too much Voltage and not clocking down, Throttlestop for the same, update the keyboard firmware (like, wtf) and UEFI to get rid of some other issues, Problems re-installing Sonic Studio because you can't just download it..

Still, even up to date i haven't seen any other Pascal Laptop with a similarly quiet cooling system, so i'd buy it again.

Well if my G750Jx is any indication of reliability, I wouldn't spend the money. Three years and a known issue with the bios requires a new mobo. Asus wants 1000 to replace. Never knew of any laptop manufac with such short life. So mine is dead and I need a new one . Did they fix the issue with bios on new models? I dunno

Between the generic 2 key rollover keyboards they use, the lack of customer support, and the poor quality of build of every ASUS laptop I've managed to touch I can't stress enough that you should consider another vendor. ASUS personally stonewalled me for a solid year until my warranty ran out without every resolving a single issue even after damaging my laptop at their facility and never following through on their promise of expedited shipping (3 ground stickers before I gave up) for the repair not to mention not addressing 2 of the three issues I had with the product when they had it the first time. Not to mention a whole host of design flaws in my laptop like under powered USB3 daughter boards that cut out when used, buggy sound, buggy network cards and software, and unreliable or flat out failing recovery media. The issues with ASUS products are well documented in the forums, spend an hour reading about them.


These are not quality products and with ASUS refusing to stand behind their products at even the most basic level you'd be better served with a different vendors product.

I think it depends on where you live. There are some really ****ed build quality shots in this forum but I have never ran across any myself. I think it also depends on your place of purchase. Asus seems to try and cover a LOT of the market and sells (I think) way too many variants of the same laptop. There's just too much fragmentation when it comes to their line up when you go into these forums. My first ROG experience was kind of a let down because I picked up a Best Buy model and ended up determining the CPU could not be upgraded because the mobo was different in the Best Buy compared to other retail models of the same laptop.

Since I started going through my work, who goes through CDW, who has the laptops drop shipped from Asus directly, I haven't had any problems. They definitely don't have the best prices, But I like that they are coming directly from Asus.

I also have not experienced the popping speakers others have with these laptops after a few different models, however I don't doubt its an issue seeing as there are so many complaints on it. The few problems I may have had with this laptop, I have a friend who owns a MSI high end gaming laptop and they all seem to have their own minor issues.

I had one RMA experience and the mobo was replaced in my old G74Sx. The whole process was pretty painless. I feel for others in the forum who havent had a similar experience. I think Asus outsources their repair facilities in some locations.

My only real gripe is price. You're starting to have to pay for the ROG name. The Strix has taken up the low end, now the ROG laptops are starting to get into the Alienware price range or higher. While I dont care for Alienware, the price point if it gets too high, could push me to another vendor.
