It does what it says. I added an SSD and this thing flies. I could say the only downside is the weight and i noticed some scratches on the bag. Besides that the laptop is amazing

I've had this mean machine for 2 years now. I swapped out the disk drive for an SSD. Now it boots up in less than 15 seconds. It boots up even faster from hibernate. It's crazy fast. I use windows 8.1 on this and I use it a lot for movies and gaming. It can run any game beautifully. I also love how it can resume in a second like a mac. It can last 6 days on standby.

What I don't like is that it's so heavy, which really isn't a big deal until you're trying to balance it on your lap or take it to class. Also, the battery life lasts 2 hours max. Just a little more than 1 when gaming. It should really be used more like a portable desktop.

Still, this baby handles anything I can throw its way so the weight and battery life don't bother me much. Just don't expect to get an 8 hour work day out of this without the charger close by.

This is my first G55 series laptop. Looks like the promo says a "stealth laptop design". Remember, its a gaming laptop, and its not a daily-carry-on laptop. I use it on my desktop when I'm at home or when I'm on "vacations, for playing online, watching movies. The audio (speakers) really bow out. The touch pad is kinda sensible, but no problems found. The keyboard is "engineerly distributed", the space between each key is well distributed and the illumination is a great plus when gaming in the dark. The only issue found is that the battery doesn't charge to 100%. It stays on 99% even with a complete discharge cycle and charge up. Iǘe tried different setting's and hasn't solved it. I'll be searching the net for answers. The backpack is the same that came with my asus G1S (green and black) I thought the would have change it like the asus rog shuttle backpack, but really doesn't matter ;) as I'm not planning on carrying it with me "all the time". The screen has no defects at all, and is bright enough for some of the games I'm playing. No irregular reflects found when working. My product came with no mouse, I don't know if its normal, but since I already have my G700. The AC adapter es way big, almost two times the size of the old asus g1s. In resume, its the a great laptop.

This is the second Asus laptop I purchased. My older G50VT is still running strong.
But with G55VW ROG, Asus has taking laptops to another level. the exterior of this
notebook, Wedge shape and black rubber finish. The matte finish screen very pleasant
to watch movie and videos. And the back lit keyboards is a plus. Since my purchase
in June. I have upgrade to 16GB of ram and rocking a 512GB SSD blazing fast.....
Intel I7 Processor 2.3 Ghz, nvidia 660M and Window 7 operating system that make this
unit a a complete package.

Con. Single band network card

Overall the computer works great with almost anything ranging from MMOs to playing movies. I can now play some games such as Starcraft II with full graphics on and not get lag. However, there are times that it suddenly.. goes slow for no apparent reason, and right now as I'm typing this review, the USB ports seem to not work for mice. I'm still trying to figure out what's wrong so I didn't give the computer a 5 star.
