    ASUS S400CA Reviews

    VivoBook S400CA-DB51T 14- Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer (Black) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, big bang for your buck! I use this product for day to day work, nothing high performance. I really love this computer for a few reasons: PROS1. It's fast-never had any issues with speed and it's more than enough speed for someone who isn't using it for anything technical2. It's sexy-this computer is sleek, looks like a macbook air, is light (although not as light as its counterparts), and has a great look and sturdy feel to it3. I really like the multi-touch keyboard and touch screenCONS:1. Has just shut off randomly a couple times. Hasn't done it in a while so maybe it was just a fluke2. The glare on the screen gets pretty bad with a lot of sunlight in the room or outside3. The touchpad is not as responsive as I'd like for it to be4. The keyboard is a 4 out of 5 stars, doesn't feel as good as a macbook5. At times the processor can be a bit loud, like a clicking noiseOverall for around $$ you can't beat the value though. It's a great ultrabook thats totally worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great net book I like the weight and design. The mouse takes a little getting use to because it lacks separate buttons. My first machine arrived DOA, but B&H was great and replaced it with free overnight freight! Thank you guys! I use this machine for my business and have enjoyed it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't expect too much. This is low cost This laptop really misses a real SSD drive. The hard drive is the bottle neck here. Installing heavy programs like AutoCad takes forever. It's a pity that the way the 24GB SSD cache works is absolutely obscure. The ExpressCache service, which is supposed to smartly copy data from the HDD to the SSD cache is in no way monitorable or configurable. Another thing, in a few hours use, I have already gotten 2 complete freezes while using Internet Explorer, which is quite worrying. The screen is mediocre: the low resolution makes pixels visible, and it is extremely glossy. Wifi signal reception is also surprisingly poor (when compared to my high-end Dell E6530). As for the touchpad, I was used to leaving my left finger on the left button, which is problematic with the Asus laptop, as it interferes with the movements of the pointer drived by the right finger (this may be a constraint shared by all similar touchpads). Finally, some satisfactory points: the design and build quality are good. The processor and RAM provided should be enough for most uses. The price is correct.
