        Comments about ASUS N76VZ-DS71 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black):

        When the laptop arrived, I plugged in the AC/DC adapter, it popped, flashed, and went dead. Luckily I did not have the adapter plugged into the laptop! I now had a very expensive laptop that I could not use. After many calls, emails, and fighting with ASUS to pay for return shipping of the defective adapter (that's right, they wanted ME to pay for shipping their defective adapter back to them), I finally received a new AC adapter and returned the defective adapter. This process took about 2 weeks, during which time I could not use the laptop! I was very frustrated and almost returned everything to B&H. Now that I have the AC adapter, I'm very happy with the laptop. However, I'm still in the early stages of installing software (I always blow away the factory install and load a clean copy of Windows to eliminate all the garbage that comes with the factory install), but so far it looks good.

        Overall I am happy with this new notebook. Keys are lit up, screen displays rich colors and video playback does not freeze. I have not checked battery life since it is plugged in all the time. It is heavy but you have to sacrifice that to get the speed and power. A lot of junk programs but you can clean it up. The touch pad is little bit sensitive, therefore I turned it off and use a mouse. Also, on the bottom side of the touch pad, it is sticking out up ward as if you could put a finger nail underneath it and pry it out. Other than that, love it. No regrets and later on when SSD gets cheaper, I will upgrade it and it will be faster once again.

        Comments about ASUS N76VZ-DS71 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black):

        Hi all,

        I am a videograhper and a gamer, so just with this information, you can already tell that I need only the best of the best to run all of my applications and this powerful laptop just delivered what I needed in the palm of my hands. We live in a world where technology moves at an extremely fast pace and many things nowadays have to be ran on powerful computers and/or laptops. When it comes to videography, everything is filmed in HD now and editing as well as color corrections, and CG work are now more tasking on processors and graphics cards. I love laptops and will always mostly likely choose a laptop over a computer because I love taking my work wherever I am. However, I needed something powerful that would allow me to run all my softwares along with HD footage at a fast pace. What was also important to me was a great price. So what I was looking for was a laptop that had the latest Intel I-Core 7 processor, at least 2 gigs on a dedicated graphics card, at least 1 TB on the hardrive, full HD at 1920 by 1080, hold at least 8 GIGS of RAM but able to max at 16 GIGS, 3.0 USB ports to transfer data at high speeds, a blu-ray DVD player/burner, and most importantly that was at a great price. Being patient and waiting for the opportunity to find itself, B & H had the laptop of my dreams indeed. THE ASUS N76VZ is the best purchase I have ever made on a computer. The laptop I own prior to this purchase was also an ASUS and was powerful but nothing compare to this power house here - and let me emphasize the word "POWER HOUSE" - that ASUS created for us videographers, gamers, and 3D application Artists. I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! This laptop has the latest intel I-Core 7 processor; 2 GIGS on a dedicated Nvidia Graphics Card, which NVIDIA is the best by the way; 1 TB on the hardrive at 7200 RPM split into 4 HD (it works for me); HD screen at 1920 by 1080, Four 3.0 USB ports; Blu-ray DVD player/burner, 8 GIGS of Ram upgradeable to 16 GIGS. Upon receiving my laptop, I maxed the rams up to 16 GIGS because I need all that power to run all my applications all at once.

        Running all my Editing and CG softwares on this machine is a breeze. Now, playing PC games on this machine is just plainly amazing. I max the graphics all the way within the game and all my games still run like nothing had ever changed but the amazing graphics thanks to Nvidia's awesomeness.

        LET US JUST SAY THAT NOT ONLY ARTISTS, NO MATTER WHAT FIELD YOU ARE IN AND GAMERS, NO MATTER WHAT GAMES YOU PLAY - THIS LAPTOP WILL NOT BE A DISAPPOINTMENT BUT A GREAT PURCHASE. AND LOOK AT THE PRICE PEOPLE? LOVE IT! ASUS UNDERSTOOD - LET'S MAKE A POWERFUL LAPTOP AT A GREAT PRICE AND GUESS WHAT HAPPENS? THEY SALE GOES UP AND WE ARTISTS AND GAMERS ARE HAPPY! IT'S AN EASY CONCEPT TO UNDERSTAND REALLY.

        IF YOU'RE GONNA BUY A COMPUTER OR LAPTOP AND YOU NEED POWER, LOOK NO FUTHER AS ASUS DID IT AGAIN ... AND ONE MORE THING - THE SOUND ON THIS LAPTOP IS JUST AMAZING! NO MORE DING DING SOUNDS FROM YOUR LAPTOP BUT SOME REAL SOUNDS FROM THE LAPTOP PLUS AN ADDED SUBWOOFER. GENIUS!

              Nice product. Did not scrimp on features. Bang Olufusen Sound was a plus I had not counted on. I expected the i7 processers to be a bit quicker with 8 GB of memory. The 1 TB drive is segmented into (4) 250GB drives. Using it with my business to drive rear projection HD screen. .........

              Comments about ASUS N76VZ-DS71 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black):

              Big Note: The 1TB of storage is from 2 500GB drives that occupy both hard drive bays. If you plan on using an SSD with this laptop you will have to remove one of them.

              I installed an SSD and a clean Windows install on it. The computer is blazingly fast and games run very smooth at high details. Be careful though this was no easy task. Tips to do this yourself:
              1) After a clean install of Windows the USB ports don't work and the wired and wireless networking don't work. This makes installing drivers quite difficult. Luckily one of the HD's comes with all the drivers pre-loaded on it in a "eSupport" folder. I found and installed the network driver, then went to Asus' support site to get all the latest drivers for everything else.
              2) This laptop uses two video cards. It will alternate between the high powered NVidia and an Intel HD 4000. The only issue I found with this is that the NVidia site does not have drivers, you must get your drivers from the Asus' site. Don't waste time on the NVidia site.
              3) Don't keep using the wireless network drivers that are preinstalled. I was having terrible issues with TF2 (the game would lock up for 1-20 second about once a minute). The issue didn't get resolved until I did the following: a) Installed the latest wireless drivers, b) Installed the latest audio driver, c) Activated Windows, d) Installed Windows SP1. I did all of those at once so am not sure exactly which resolved my issues. Now the game runs like a dream.
              4) Install the touchpad driver. The touchpad on this thing really is awful. It is huge and extremely easy to accidently touch when typing or playing games. By installing the driver you can use the function keys to disable it quickly. I keep the touch pad disabled and use a mouse at all times.

              PROS:
              1) It runs very fast
              2) The keyboard feels good
              3) The display is very clear and has a wide viewing angle
              4) With the SSD I boot in seconds
              5) The case is very slick
              6) Closing/opening the lid has a good feel to it, and the lid can open farther than any of my other laptops.

              CONS:
              1) The touchpad is very bad.
              2) Setting up the boot order in BIOS is very confusing. I finally got it working but am not really sure what I did.
              3) 1TB is split, occupying both HD bays.

              Overall I love this laptop. Highly recommended.

              Comments about ASUS N76VZ-DS71 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black):

              Did not buy from BH, ended up spending $50 more. It is all it says it is, I do not need to say "oh the blu-ray burner is awesome, you know that.Hard drive is NOT 1 TB, mine came with two Seagate momentous 500GB, thankfully 7200RPM. I was happy to see two hard drive slots, as I replaced primary with a 512GB Crucial M4. From on button to the face login, to all icons loaded 19-22 seconds. Surely it will slow a bit as drives are filled up.The keyboard is backlit, the touchpad has great neat features, but Asus or the company has allot of work to do to make it as fun as it should be, too sensitive and really in the way when typing. I wish it had and on off. Utton on the pad, it does not. You must go I to control panel under mouse and pointing devices to disableFlat out fast, my only complaint and what pulled on me for weeks to may be not buy, the limits of 8GB of memory, would have been great to have 16 capable like their game units. It is as all Asus units, best bank for the buck from their lower to highest model. Buy a square trade warranty direct with them, as Asus customer service has been awful, since I sold their MOBOs in the early 90s. That really is the weak link, the customer service.The gentleman with the heat issue, something must be wrong. I feel warm air but ran 10 windows with 6 movies, two spread sheets compiling and was online in WofW and it did drag on game, totally understandable, but I did it for heat and trying to max chip and it was not overly warm. Get it checked before long sir.

              Comments about ASUS N76VZ-DS71 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black):

              I am a huge Asus fan, but both the laptops I've gotten from them now have heat issues. This machine runs very hot by the vent on the lefthand side (and no, I'm not using it on soft fluffy surfaces), and I have to use a cooling desk with it when I run heavy programs. However, I can host a large map on Civ5 without any issues. Supreme Commander runs beautifully, too!

              Screen: GORGEOUS! Astonishing viewing angle. Matte non-glare surface does not detract from crispness of images. TRUE white backlight...when compared with my other four displays in the house, it is a world of difference.

              Sound: pretty good for a laptop (rivals my cheap surround for quality). Came with a subwoofer, which added a very satisfying depth to my BR Avatar experience, but is a hassle to lug around separately and needs a surface within 12 inches to sit on. Subwoofer stays home.

              Battery: lasts about an hour and a half while watching movies if screen brightness is turned down.

              Size and weight: yes, this is essentially a desktop replacement. I have had issues finding good laptop bags for it, since I need to be able to take it to school for my CAD programs. I think I'm going to switch to a rolling bag with a laptop pouch.

              A few issues I have with the actual unit I got: touchpad surface is not flush with the laptop face on one side; casing seems not properly snapped together (I will likely try to fix this myself, but I have to dismantle the entire thing to do it...). Oh, and the touchpad really is as terrible as everyone says. Use a bluetooth mouse.

                This laptop is to be used for college. Though pricey it contains most advanced features and excellent screen resolution. I feel more comfortable with Win vs AppleOS which is why I got this laptop. It is not overly heavy at 7lbs. One downside is that the touch pad is very sensitive.

                  Unbelievable price and one day shipping from B&H, so they did their job just fine. The computer is perfect and powerful in every respect except one: The Elan touchpad (works like an iphone to shrink/expand/etc) is horrible. When you do any typing, with your thumbs hovering well above the touchpad, the cursor jumps all over the screen and you have to constantly stop to relocate it. I had to disable the touchpad and buy a wireless mouse. If ASUS could fix this problem this would be the best valued computer available.
