        Got this to replace my 5 year old Toshiba Satellite and I couldn't be happier. I replaced one of the HDDs with a small SSD boot drive and can't believe how quick it is, and there's still more space than I'll ever need. Setup was easy and the specs on this computer are just amazing. I was needing something that can run CAD software smoothly and there's plenty of power. Was a little bigger than I expected but that's not a big factor for me. It's only been a few weeks since I got it but so far so good. Also B&H was great to deal with in terms of the shipping process.

        I don't like it's weight. Few feature are not working so well like the built in camera.

          I have had the laptop for several months. It is very and I do mean very fast. The screen is crisp and clear. I use it for everyday computing. I basically have a desktop that I can take wherever I need to go. It feels like a quality machine. I was a little hesitant to go with a company I knew little about. I am glad I did. Good job Asus.

          I have only had this laptop for about 10 days, but so far I am impressed. I did a ton of research before purchasing and I am glad I did. The screen is large and has a nice resolution. The keyboard is nice to type on, etc. The only thing I don't love is Windows 8. It is super confusing and took me a whole day at work trying to figure it out and I am fairly computer savvy.

            This is our first laptop so take that for what it's worth. I can say that I wish the touch pad was inoperable while using a wireless mouse or at least that option was available. While typing I often drag my hand on the touch pad and end up somewhere I don't want to be other than that the N76VJ-DH71 17.3" seems to perform as advertised. One possible exception is battery life which we have found to be somewhat shorter duration than claimed also the screen is a little hard to see outdoors so that's two possible exceptions.
            This was our first order from B&H and to them I give the full 5. Their website has all the necessary information and links to keep you informed regarding the status of your order and they are straightforward about their policies. We have not had to deal with returns or service yet so no comment on that. The order arrived on time we would not hesitate to order again.

              Comments about ASUS N76VJ-DH71 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black):

              I bought this with the hopes of doing more video and photo editing than I have been doing with it. Things in life kinda got in the way, but I still do my personal stuff with the more basic photography editing program that came with my camera.
              The Asus photo editor did not seem to work with my pictures. I dont know why, I wouldnt think my Nikon camera would save them under an odd format that only the Nikon program could read...
              It handles the editing I do pretty well. It saves stuff several times, which I guess is ok since it does have boat loads of space.

              This is a great machine to sit and watch movies on in your hotel room. Blue ray looks awesome!
              The internet works great! Super fast load speeds!

              Now onto the not so great...
              Windows 8 really does suck! It is not the machines fault. I work with XP still at my business, so I am not used to the hip new stuff microsoft decided to dump onto a os that worked just fine before. It seems to be more of a tablet kind of os, which it might work just fine for, but I bought this to use as a computer for actual tasks, not just for facebook and angry birds...
              Ohh well, I might get better with it.

              Overall, great graphics, decent sound, not so easy to use os...

              Lightening fast access to internet and files. Windows 8 takes some getting used to. The 2 terabyte storage capacity is great for my music and movies. The large display is clear and you don't have to be in front of it to see the picture clearly. The sound is fantastic, and the included subwoofer gives it a boost. This computer replaces my desktop and the 4 hard drives that were in it.

              This is my first Asus laptop as well as my first time experiencing the Win8 OS. The new OS took some getting used to, but everything I had before is running fine after a few software upgrades. This laptop is an excellent performer (after disabling the touchpad which is oversensitive) and doesn't heat up like other brands. I highly recommend the N76VJ-DH71 as a desktop replacement.

                The laptop runs incredibly fast and efficiently in the beginning the laptop was EXTREMELY SLOW, but after windows updated itself everything returned to normal. I highly recommend this laptop as it suits all my needs. Expect a couple of issues as Windows 8 is such an annoying system, you may get unexpected errors. But overall, it is a pretty good deal. If you're a gamer the laptop works really well, I played Skyrim and it was indistinguishable from my PS3. I was also able to hook up my ps3 controller to it.

                  I bought this as a desktop replacement and it has served well as such. I prefer the matte screen over all of my previous glossy screens. The keyboard has a nice feel to it. I mostly use a mouse, but the trackpad is fine, as well. The separate sub-woofer (a soup can sized device connected by a short wire) really makes a difference in music videos. You probably would not even know about this speaker from the online descriptions of this computer. It took me a bit of digging (the Asus website is not the best) and a B&H employee actually chatted me when I asked about it, that the sub-woofer was not separate, and that it was built in, just like a normal laptop. It is, indeed, a separate item, that I usually plug in only when I feel like it will make a difference in whatever I am viewing/listening to. I purchased this over the Samsung that is [$] more, but thinner and has slot loading and a higher def screen. I haven't missed any of that. The biggest challenge has been getting used to Windows 8 after a decade of XP. It has all of the ports you will need: all USB's are 3.0, seperate mike and headphone jacks, all of the different video jacks. Asus knows how to put together a sensible laptop. Attractive, yet not any bling that will look dated in 2 years. No heat issues. There you have it.
