    I am writing this review from my N56VJ-DH71 laptop and I have to say, this laptop could not be better. I looked over hundreds of laptops before deciding on this one, and I'm glad I did! This laptop has amazing specs for the price, which I found to be cheapest on cyber monday here - bhphotovideo.com - really nice quick delivery too in a well protected box.
    The hardrive has plenty of room and the computer itself is very fast. The screen has a great matte antiglare display and the resolution is incredible.
    The computer looks and feels very solid and well put together, but it is still one of the most stylish laptops I've seen. The front cover looks very professional, but collects fingerprints fairly easily so if that bugs you, you'll need to keep a cleaning device around.
    The sound quality on the laptop is very good and looks great with the large speakers that even double as a cooling vent! The multi-touch pad looks very fancy and has a good feel to it with the spun aluminum face. I read a lot of reviews on this laptop, and a few people were reporting having trouble clicking the bottom left corner with the touchpad, but I have had no problems with it, and I can even go to the very edge with my finger and it still works great.
    One thing I would like to add is that in the product description it describes the keyboard as a standard notebook keyboard, so I had questions about if it was backlit or not, as I had heard both. To my pleasant surprise it did come with one, and it works very nicely!
    Battery life varies with what you're doing, but for my normal use of web browsing, video streaming, editing, and a few online games, I am usually getting around 2 hours for online gaming and editing, and about 3.5 for web and video surfing, which is nice. The fan operates quietly and easily keeps the computer cool during intense multitasking.
    I would definitely recommend this laptop to anyone who needs a powerful multitasking machine for a good price, and that they can be seen proudly with to show off. If you are into gaming, video/photo editing, video surfing, and other needy tasks, then this laptop is for you. You will be happy you bought it. I know I am!

    I use this laptop for my photography buisiness and for some personal functions.
    I WOULD not recommend this machine for photography. For some reason it will not hold any color calibration. It always reverts to a very blue profile. I have been in touch with ASUS and they have been very unresponsive.
    i have been using computers in my business for 15 years, so I do know a little.

    Also, the touch pad is one of the worst I have used.

    The machine also chokes on nikon D800 files in Lightroom. Brings the program to a virtual standstill. Maybe 16GB of Ram would help.

    Buyer beware.

    Used for surfing the net, watch HD and Full HD videos, heavy software like adobe Matlab and Photoshop.

    This laptop has a great design. The Bang & Olufsen speakers together with the SonicMaster sub-woofer produces really nice sound.The SuperHybridEngine overclocks the processor from about 2.4 GHz to 3.4 GHz.The backlit keyboard makes it easier to use in the dark.The screen is really awesome.
    One thing which could be improved is the battery life.

            I'm a college student and use this computer for engineering/computing/computer aided drafting software and those are some serious programs and this computer works wonderfully. It is very fast on the internet as well. The keyboard is really comfortable and the full number pad is really useful for math related plug-ins. Has a ton of cool features built in. Also, while researching this computer I read a lot about the mousepad being sketchy, but I have found that this is not the case at all. I have had no problems whatsoever. I am also an avid music listener...and this is the BEST set of laptop speakers I have EVER heard, especially when the cool little subwoofer that's included is plugged in. INCREDIBLE speakers for a laptop. The display is nice and the camera is good for skype etc. The one and only thing I can even say is a complaint is the battery life. IT really does only last for about 4 hours which is a slight nuisance but not enough for me to overlook every other amazing aspect about this laptop and give it anything less than 5 stars. I know this Asus will last me awhile with quality performance.

              Really like this computer. It is fast and does everything I need it to with room to grow later. Excellent screen! Sound without the bass plugged in leaves a lot to be desired and who has time to plug it in every time I listen to something. Much less carrying it around with me. BIG and does not fit in a case. Not a big fan of Windows 8. I removed all the stupid apps on the start screen and now only have programs like Office. The start screen is stupid. Too much like a phone and I bought a computer so I go directly to the desktop and don't waste my time with the start screen. Windows 8 is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars. If you like windows 8 then this computer is awesome.

                Comments about ASUS N56VJ-DH71 15.6" Notebook Computer (Black):

                I really love this computer. It is beautiful, has great sound by Bang and Olufsen, and is very quiet while still performing very well. It's a steal at only $. So far, my only minor complaints is that the arrow keys are not very nicely placed, but it is fine considering they managed to fit a full numpad on the nice backlit keyboard. Another thing is that the back of the screen with the asus logo on it is a fingerprint magnet, but this too is ok because it is a trade off; the nice dark metal back will naturally show fingerprints more. Third, it comes preinstalled with quite a lot of bloatware, but isn't too much of a problem figuring out what you don't need and uninstalling it. This shouldiremoveit.com/ is very useful for figuring stuff like that out, and this .revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html is great for making sure that you get all of the nasty leftover files fomr the programs you uninstall. My final gripe is that for some reason, the integrated gpu, the intel hd 4000 seems to be what is enabled in most applications by default, rather than the geforce gt 635m discret one. Other than those, this computer is a great buy, and I would definitely recommend it!

                  I got this laptop for school so I could use it for work and keep my files organized as well as recreational things like music with itunes an photos. Eventually I would like to make a couple videos and see how the program that comes with the laptop works and if I like it. The last laptop I had was the old black macbook pro from 2007 and before that I had a gateway computer. I had gotten used to the Mac operating system so I had to get used to using windows 8 which is find once you're adjusted. Sometimes the mousepad doesn't react right away but it always comes back. so far I haven't had a problem with the programs I've downloaded onto it, I've heard itunes can be a little funky with PCs, but no problems so far. Its super fast, I love that I can do lots of things on it at once without it making things slower. I was a little skeptical about getting the 15 inch (and there was no 13in with all the features that this one has so I had to settle for a bigger laptop) because I thought it would be annoying to carry around campus, I haven't had to do that yet since school hasn't started, so we'll see how that goes, but at least for now I think its fine because its great for watching movies and I like having the space on the screen. It was difficult to find a nice case for it, most of the nicer cases (soft inside, pretty colors, nice patterns, etc.) are for macs or for 13 inch laptops so that was kind of annoying. I ended up finding one from [*] which was fine and there are some cool ones. I also wanted other accessories like the hard case and the keyboard skin. But like I said about the cases, most of that stuff is compatible with Macs and there's not as many for each specific PC. I did decide on this PC because it had all the newest features that I wanted, like 1 terrabite of memory, 8gb ram, and the newest processor and when I compared it to the Mac that had similar features (if not less) it was about $300 more if you include the warranty and everything, so I just went for the PC even though I do have to worry about antivirus but I try to stay pretty safe about those sort of things. But all in all I love it, I think it looks and feels great, I can do all the things I need to on here and I'm hoping it will last me a long time since there's lots of memory.

                  This is a great laptop with a cool light up keyboard and it comes with this sub woofer thing. But when i first got it there were a whole bunch of Microsoft updates and all this stuff for like a week, and occasionally the keyboard wouldn't work but after you get through that its great! (also I should note that the picture is misleading, it shows blue ray on the disk drive when in fact it does not have blue ray"

                    I do a lot of data crunching on Excel and using Adobe Creative Suite. This computer out of the box runs Office 2013 with no hitches. Creative Suite 6 runs pretty well, but the colors on the gradient look a little bit off. I play a few games on this, and the video card is sufficient to run the Total War series. Screen is bright and brilliant. The mouse pad is a bit of a bummer some times, but I use a wireless mouse most of the time. Sound is great, the subwoofer is funny. Battery Life is right around 4 hours. Don't get hot at all!

                      Heavy daily video user- converted from video camera and recorded on laptop. Runs fine, not hot at all, handles 8+ hours of use per day. Granted, I've only had it a week before asked to leave feedback, so the real question- durability/longevity- remind to be seen.

                      Was directed to this brand and model by knowledgable in-store staff (knowledgable is a subjective term, but no red flags came up while questioning staff regarding my computing needs and the ability of selected machines to deliver. Given this unit had similar specs to MBP at nearly twice the price and less user friendly/compatible software, I went with the economical choice. So far so good says it all.

                      Excellent machine for photo-editing and light to moderate video editing. So far, there have been no signs of slowing down or over-heating. The sound quality is great (could be a bit louder though), and the subwoofer is a very nice addition. Keyboard is comfortably spaced. I had some trouble with the voice recorder being too soft because the default setting was 50 out of 100, but it can be easily adjusted now that I know. Battery life is not particularly impressive (less than 4 hours), but that is not a deal breaker for me since I am mainly concerned with: power, comfort, and ease of use.

                      Overall, excellent and powerful laptop that is worth the money.

                      Unbeatable for the price. So far the labtop has been very solid. The trackpad takes some getting used to, but isn't that bad, though sometimes takes you back to the home screen accidently. The multi-finger gestures work great though.

                      I was hesitant with windows 8, as I'm developing software but it's been fine. I haven't had any tools not install properly. Running VMWare, eclipse, movies, etc all at once wiht the i7 processer works incredibly fast.

                      Future upgrade to SSD would make this a complete machine.

                      I bought this laptop to replace my Sony Vaio that always seemed to overheat, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. I bought it to start fresh for college, and I'll probably be using it for presentations, in addition to watching movies, and all that multimedia stuff.

                      The laptop is beautiful, it has a beautiful design, the screen is nice, and Asus really made this laptop feel like it was built with quality materials. The laptop is insanely quiet, a nice change from my Vaio.

                      Asus takes a lot of pride in the laptop's audio, which they should. I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant on how good they made the speakers sound, but they are truly great speakers. Especially with the included sub woofer.

                      The laptop is a bit on the heavy side, but it isn't too heavy that you can't get used to it. You need to keep in mind though, a lot of laptops with similar specs are around the same weight, so that shouldn't be an issue. The battery life is decent, but it would be wise to keep your charger nearby.

                      I have to say, I'm really happy with my decision to buy my laptop, and I'm really picky with my electronics, so I'd recommend this laptop to anyone.

                        This is a large laptop by today's standards. It works fine for moving around the house or carrying on trips in the car. It would not be my choice for airline travel or moving from classroom to classroom on a large campus.

                        It does everything I want to do very well. It is fast with good graphics. The display and keyboard are very good. The last trip I made I was able to stream movies at a motel and avoid motel TV.

                        I have used the laptop for about a month and am very pleased. I was a little concerned about Windows 8 without a touch screen. It is not a problem for me. I do use a mouse most of the time. At home I attach the laptop to either a monitor or a TV and also use an alternative keyboard. It makes a great desktop.

                        The Asus notebook is a pretty good notebook. It has a fast processor and was easy to set up Windows and other features. I'm hoping that this notebook will have a much longer "life" span than my previous notebook from another company, which will remain nameless. The only concern I have about this Asus is the battery life - it's too short.
