Spec for spec, this looks like the cheapest/best value GTX 1050 I can find. HP Omen is the same price but only 2GB Vram and without the bundle ASUS is also offering

Looks like the i7 Kabylake is only £899 as well - Both are good prices that I can see

- 15.6"
- Kabylake i5/Kabylake i7
- 8GB

This multimedia series not gaming. All gaming models starts from G, like g502, g553, g552 and etc. However in terms price/hardware very good price. Hot from me

It's been posted on their official ROG Twitter, so it seems as if it's a new gaming model?

It not Rog series you can find it here Asus Uk store asus.com/uk/…ts/

Can't quite figure out if this has an IPS screen (and if it does, is it any good?).

No idea but it says matte screen. Shame that I missed a deal for GL553 last month for £799. But this deal is also good

From specifications

15.6" (16:9) LED backlit FHD (1920x1080) 60Hz Anti-Glare Panel with 72% NTSC with 178˚ wide-viewing angle display

The only difference between i7 version is CPU basically it doesn't worth to pay extra £100 for that

You can tell it's a gaming laptop because its hideous.

Just ordered

Yeah, the VX thing is really confusing. Could it just be a typo maybe??

Here's a decent review of the ASUS FX553VD....

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Asus-FX553VD-7700HQ-GTX-1050-Laptop-Review.213522.0.html

This deffo has a TN screen. They don't say too many bad things about it but in the detailed comparison numbers, it looks on a par with the Dell Inspirion 7000 TN screen that so many reviews have slagged off. The screen brightness, at 215 cd/m2 looks very poor ( for comparison, my two year old ASUS N551JK, which cost a measly £563, has an IPS screen with a brightness of 315 and is a joy to look at!)

Thanks for the reply, I have read that review as well and the adobe rgb range is poor, what confuses me even more is that on the asus website the fx comes with two screens: 72% NTSC with 178˚ and the other one with 45% NTSC. I believe the first one is ips

It should be IPS screen. Can confirm this tomorrow as soon I receive it

Hi @rucer07. Did you receive the laptop yet. I'm intrigued if it has an IPS display. If so, I'm buying one today.

Hi guys,

I just received my laptop. Unfortunately its is TN Panel. I tested display from different angles. It comes with laptop bag and gaming mouse (SICA). My display ID: BOE069C, 100% TN

It is definitely TN, black colours disappearing when you move screen. Disappointing

Update: This laptop is fully plastic, unlike GL753 which is metal


Edited by: "rucer07" 13th May

Guys,

it worth to looking at GL753 or GL553 models. Happy to reply if you have any questions

I managed to pick up an i7 omen for 753 from HP last week, admittedly only 2gb VRAM but seems good so far.

Guys I returned FX553 model and bought GL553 which comes with nice IPS display. GL553 is excellent machine

Build quality is excellent! I dont like touchpad but I am not using it at. Top lid is from aluminium a bit flimsy otherwise is very good quality machine. I play Starcraft 2, no overheating even on high settings. Downloading forza 3 now, which comes free with this laptop

Also on top left side of display a bit backlight bleeding, but its minor only visible on dark scenes sometimes
