ASUS ROG G752VL-DH71 Review

The Asus Rog G752VL-DH71 has everything you may expect in an affordable gaming rig. We always loved the copper-silver exterior of the laptops in ASUS’s Republic Of Gamers (ROG) series. The red logo placed on the lid is eye catchy while the huge single vent, instead of the dual-vent arrangement generally seen in other gaming rigs, feels very unique. With that being said, the ROG’s lustrous surface has a tendency to attract fingerprints and smudges. Also, weighing 8.8 lbs, it is a massive laptop. In the following sections, we are going to discuss every feature of this machine.

ASUS ROG G752VL-DH71 – Specifications:

Inside its chassis, there is a powerful 2.6 GHz Core i7-6700HQ CPU. This processor, along with 16 GB of RAM with 2133 MHz clock speed, provides you enough multitasking capabilities. In fact, you can keep 15 Chrome tabs open and switch between them without the smallest hint of a lag. The 2GB DDR5 NVIDIA GTX965M is sufficient to play most of the modern 3D games at medium or high resolution, with a healthy frame rate. Thanks to the groundbreaking G-SYNC technology, this laptop also delivers the smoothest gaming experience by syncing the display’s refresh rates to the graphics chip. The onboard storage also includes a 256GB SSD and the 1TB HDD which should be enough to store all your movies and games.

The biggest problem for any gaming rig is heating. The G752VL-DH71’s cooling system is effective enough to let you play movies or games for hours at a stretch without worrying much about heating. The cooling fans do their job quietly. Also, there is also a dust-discharge mechanism to prevent any dust from entering the internals.

This laptop incorporates the USB 3.1 and Type-C ports, so you can connect it to a range of peripherals. The video options are HDMI, VGA, and Thunderbolt ports, and the audio is available through a microphone, S/PDIF port, and a headphone jack. Wireless options include 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

The backlit keyboard is aptly placed and is spacious enough to accommodate a numeric keypad. The keys feel snappy and easy to use, needing just the right amount of force to actuate. Like any other laptop of the ROG series, this rig features nice palm rests, so you can comfortably type for prolonged durations. The touchpad feels very responsive and we didn’t find a single issue while using it for the multi-finger gestures of Windows 10.

The ASUS notebooks are known for their awesome display quality. The G752VL-DH71 continues the trend with its spectacular full-HD IPS panel that produces vibrant colors with good brightness levels. You can easily notice even the tiniest details in every frame displayed on the 17.3-inch screen clearly.
