ASUS GL752 Review – 17″ Budget Gaming Laptop (Late 2015)

My review of the 2015 ASUS GL752V. A moderately priced 17″ gaming laptop. Review covers screen, keyboard, trackpad, build quality with video editing and gaming performance.
Is this the best valued 17″ gaming laptop? Is this thing good for gamers?

Review unit: i7/16G/1TB/960M

    This kind of keyboard is just perfect for a left handed guy like me.

    There is a reason if iPhone, iPad have a beautiful glare screen, and also Razer Blade Pro have one of it!!!!!! (best screen ever on a notebook)

    Currently using Asus ROG GL552VX featuring 6th Gen i7Core, GTX 950m, 8GB RAM in 2017, while playing Battlefield 1 on low setting the gameplay is okay but the heat at CPU is kinda hot it stays at around 80~90 degree Celsius , GPU stays at 70~78 degree Celsius. Same goes to Ark Survival Evolved at extremely low memory mode and low graphic setting the temperature of CPU stay at 89-95 degree Celsius and GPU stay at 70-79 degree Celsius. I'm not sure that this normal or there are something wrong with my laptop. Been using this for a year other than the heat issues others are fine and it serves me well in gaming.

    Does anybody experience sudden shutdown with this laptop when not plugged in? The battery level is not that even close to shutting down. As well as when plugged in, my laptop does not reach up to 100%. Like only around 70-80%. Does anybody know the solution for this?

    i used this laptop for almost two years.. and i don't see a problem using this.
    there's a lot of new games that can handle just like gears of war 4 i play it on ultra settings..
    this is a good laptop, but if you have more money just buy the new model of Asus ROG gaming laptop. but i recommend this laptop for you guys. 🙂

    I bought the Asus GL752VW-DH74 2 years ago, have played Fallout 4, Witcher 3, Rage, skyrim, all the Assassin's Creed and many other games. I normally keep my video settings on High, GTA 5 needed to go Mid on the graphics. But overall it is a great gaming laptop and I love it.

    Watching today. Just to say that 5 years later I am still heavily using my very own of this very laptop. It has been the best money I have spent but it has sadly, after all the 24.7 use of gaming, programming, streaming and use of other full on design software it is finally starting to wear out. What laptop is on the same level as this laptop today? I would very much like to stick with Asus as they have done me very well in the past. Thank you.

    TBH, I have absolutely flogged mine. I have taken it with me everywhere and have done so much with it such as eating, dropping, spilling drinks, everything over the years and it has not faulted once.

    Dave lee was my ultimate crush when it comes to tech reviewers 😍💕 He is very OPPA like hahaha

    Hello guys! I have the same model of laptop, ASUS ROG GL752VW.
    Can you help me? please I want to upgrade 8GB RAM to 16GB RAM but I don't know ram compatible.
    I want only 1 slot of 16GB RAM.
    Thank you! I hope sameone will respond <3
    Have a nice day!

  22. This laptop carried me through college. Always overheat when playing games but an 17inch screen and a strong cpu is awesome for learning,coding and CAD.

  23. You already know I had to come back to the video that made me buy this exact laptop five years ago lol

    Thanks for the review, everything is very sensible! .. I would like to ask, I have the same asus laptop .. After one preventive maintenance and a repairman for dust cleaning, I noticed that the laptop screen ,,..horizontal lines began to appear on the screen ,,After after I move the screen a little, as if the screen image becomes normal .. Maybe the laptop screen cable was damaged …? Thanks again!
