ASUS ROG GL552JX Review : Born to game, and nothing else

ASUS ROG GL552JX Review : Born to game, and nothing else

All things considered, the ROG GL552JX offers a well-balanced set of features and performance at its selling price – which is rather attractive. It's not the best gaming laptop out there, but at its offer price it's a recommendation worthy deal for sure, if you're looking to have a gaming laptop that dresses the part as well.

Apart from a quad-core CPU, oodles of RAM, fast-spinning hard drive, the GL552JX has a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M GPU with 2GB DDR3 memory. The GPU is certainly one of the better ones we’ve encountered on a notebook all year long, and gives this ASUS ROG machine some serious gaming chops. In synthetic benchmarks, it was similar to the ROG G551J, while real-world gaming benchmarks with BioShock Infinite and Hitman Absolution were marginally better.

As per our Datacolor Spyder calibrator, the ROG GL552JX screen brightness is at 273.2 cd/m2, contrast ratio sits at 840:1 and the display encapsulates 99% of sRGB color gamut space, which is quite good. No complaints with the notebook’s backlit keyboard, touchpad, but it has mediocre onboard audio, unspectacular battery life of 1 hours 49 minutes only. However, this is a very good deal at the price.
