This Beast is Best For Gaming
by Elham Mukhtar on 2016-03-22
I bought this Laptop in my local store and it has 2 RAM slot but flipkart is not mention in description, I tested Asaassin's Creed IV Black Flag, (HIGH QUALIY) COD Ghost, COD Black Ops3 and GTA V, These game run VERY SMOOTHLY without any lag. but first thing I have to tell you I installed 4GB ram Extra in other slot.
A little bit heating issue when I played game 5 Hours continuously. But don't worry after shutdown it turn into normal within 30 sec.
Great Laptop for gamers buy this gadget blindly

Firstly the Delivery was amazing. I received the product 5 days from ordering(5 days earlier than expected date).Kudos TSRetail.
The Laptop has exceeded my expectations. I researched about laptops in this price range for a week before ordering.This was definitely the best laptop for multipurpose use including media consumption, work performance and even gaming.
The Laptop looks and feels amazing.The Description originally claimed that the product was matte finish on the outside but they have since changed the description and it is indeed a glossy dark brown which isn't necessarily a bad look but I personally prefer the matte finish.I have ordered and abstracvinyl from mSleep to give that matte feel.
There seems to be a lot of confusion regarding the RAM slots on this laptop, I have only had the product with me for a day and haven't had the chance to open up the back yet, but I will update here regarding the RAM slots.
1)The Screen amazing!
2)The keyboard is very comfortable with large keys and gooid labelling.
3)The Trackpad is a joy to use.
4)It is quite light and thin compared to other 15.6" laptops.
5)The USB 3.0 port is not coloured blue which helps to keep track of the ports but rather painted brown like the rest of the laptop.
Not a big issue but still putting it out there.
6)The Battery life is really good.it was at full charge when I began installing windows 10 on it and after the installation of my essential programs and some games and Ms office and the drivs, etc for over 3 hrs, it still had 22% battery left.
7)Installing the drivers from the Asus CD is a pain..it reboots after every installation of a driver or program.But I managed to make it through.
8)The 4GB RAM is definitely restricting performance and have ordered and additional 8GB .Will update on the improved performance.
9)I have played only Just Cause 2 and Besiege on it so far and they run smoothly at max settings( 60fps forJC2 and 90 fps for Besiege)
10)Will continue to update performance
Very Good for the price.

If anyone is wondering, maximum RAM Supported is 12GB. 4GB ram that comes with it is soldered to the motherboard and there is only one RAM Slot for upgrade. I was disappointed when i opened laptop to upgrade the RAM. Even ASUS doesn't mention this in their website. Laptop is really good though, for the price of course.

as compare to other laptop in this range the performance is excellent...awesome battery life and very light weight to carry...
but body of the laptop is not that good(but good for this price range)..
BEST PRODUCT FROM BEST SITE!!!
by Pranit Raje on 2016-05-20
This laptop is the best deal for budget of under 40k. You can definitely buy this product without thinking much. All the specifications are high which you can hardly get all of them in other brands above 42k. Runs very smoothly on Windows 10 without any lag or problem. Awesome display. Battery backup is also pretty good. Don't believe on negative comments about this laptop. Flipkart is THE BEST as usual. I got the product one day before the actual date of delivery with the amazing packing. Flipkart service center is best as usual. Good work Flipkart. Keep it up!!

asus is incredible
1)performance of the laptop is awesome without any heating problems .
2)sound quality is good (sonic master and realtek audio manger made speakers best).
3)battery backup is good.it works fine with 4 gb ram and can be expanded (ram can be easily installed by own).
4)works fine with windows 10
5)windows 10 drivers cd is present in the package,i think no drivers for windows 8.
6)weight of the laptop is less and easily carriable
7)cam has less mega pixels not preferable for taking selfies in laptop .
8)nvidia graphics made gaming experience best
9)asus makes its own motherboard so asus r558u laptop is best in this price range
10)the connectivity is important,so in this laptop is equiped with vga,hdmi,ethernet port, (3.0, 3.1, 2.0) usb ports are present
suberb lappy but with a lot of complications

Best laptop for the price range ..touchpad will only work on windows 10 ..superb performance ..its my 1st day after I got my laptop...played assassins creed black flag on ultra settings ..smooth gameplay ...slepping dogs ..on ultra settings ...the touchpad is very bad ..cuz u can't tap the left button while holding the right button ...destroys the amazement of gaming ....but other than that ..great laptop
Played saints row 4 on high settings ..display kind of just okay not great laptop can't operate in anything but windows 10 ..why ?? ..anyways super performance by the laptop ..
by Kausik kumaar on 2016-04-12
The laptop look is very attractive compared to lenovo or hp.
Main advantage is its graphics card geforce 930m 2GB which is a big advantage to get under 40k.
The next one is it is core i5 6th generation, while many laptops at its price are stuck at 5th generation.
The display is average though, but for this price the half hd display is cool, games also get high fps.
It would be better if it is listed in official site with the details of RAM supported .
Update: It can go well with Kingston 8 GB RAM - 1600Mhz DDR3L - so total 12 GB is possible with this laptop. I am using it that way.. But RAM usage rarely goes above 4GB if u are normal user
Proper driver missing for win8.1
by Flipkart Customer on 2016-03-27
I have bought this laptop recently from the flipkart and installed Ubuntu and windows 8.1(dual boot) in this laptop.the laptop comes with drivers DVD for windows 10.I have unable to find the touch-pad driver,camera driver and wifi driver for windows 8.1.I have downloaded driver from Asus support website but they are not compatible with this laptop.could any body help?in Ubuntu all devices are detected automatically including touch-pad and wifi so I think this laptop is not faulty.
Solid Configuration, but lacks build quality.
by Amal Joseph on 2016-09-20
I have been using this laptop for 6 months. It do have a good configuration than other laptops at this price. But what it lacks is build quality. Asus presents you with good specs in the expense of build quality.It was Rs 39000 when i bought it.
1- Really superb configuration, i5 6th gen(though 7th gen is out).
2-Nvidia 930m is better than ATI R330m(which is usually provided in this segment).4
3-Extremely stylish. This laptop stands out in the crowd.
4-USB Type-C, futureproofing.
5-Decent frame rates from new games (low-med settings)
6-Light compared to its peers.
Asus after sales service is splendid, atleast in my city.
It have 4GB ram installed(non removable) and an extra unused slot (max 8GB). So you can install a total of 12BG ram, not 16GB as said by others.
1-Poor build quality. You will understand what i meant if you use it for 10 minutes.
2-Keypad is not back lit(if you are into programming, this will haunt you).
My keypad failed to work after 3 months(got replaced)
3-Very bad mouse pad, the touch sensitivity is very bad compared to other brands, the outer edges of track pad is almost non-responsive.
4-Battery life- Got about 6 hour battery life initially, but after 6 months ,i'm getting a backup less than 2 hours.
5- The hand resting surface of laptop is metal finish. It is very stylish indeed. But after a few months usage. the coating of that portion is undergoing wearing.
I wouldn't recommend this laptop.
6-Non Detachable Battery.

1. Light Weight
2. Huge battery life - 10hrs on Maximum Battery Life , 3hrs after playing GTA V on highest settings
3. NVIDIA GeForce GT 930M for this price. Won't get this anywhere else
4. Intel 6th gen i5 (Skylake) processor. Great performance
5. Great Sound
1. Only 2 working USB ports (Don't know why there is a USB C port)
2. No LEDs for power , num lock , caps lock.
3. CANNOT CREATE WIFI HOTSPOT FROM INBUILT WIFI DEVICE.
Now on to each individual config:
DESIGN: Glossy Dark Brown design on the outside. It ain't that bad, but I'd personally prefer Mate Finish
SCREEN: Awesome display. But normal LCD cleaners are not able to clean this laptop. 15.6' screen, good while gaming.
BATTERY LIFE: What I see on my laptop is 10hrs on Maximum Battery Life setting. On Maximum Performance Mode, it gives me 3 hrs of battery usage. I can play GTA V , Assasin's Creed Syndicate over these 3 hours
USB PORTS : 2 USB PORTS - USB 3.0 , USB 2.0 . There's also another USB-C port, which I don't know why it is used. Moreover, unlike other laptops where USB 3 port is blue in color, this laptop has Brown colored USB 3.0 Port
OS AND DRIVERS: While this laptop comes with DOS, you can eventually upgrade it to a GUI like Windows or any Linux Distro. This laptop comes with a Driver CD for Windows 10 (and mind you no other Windows edition is supported on this laptop). Installing using the ASUS app (in the CD) is a pain in the ass because the system reboots every time that app installs a new driver. Instead, you could install individual drivers from the CD and then restart once.
If you are on Linux, there's not too much pain in the ass as almost all the drivers would be pre-installed. (You will need to install those NVIDIA Drivers though)
MEMORY: This laptop comes with a soldered 4GB RAM (which cannot be removed, unfortunately). There's one additional slot as well, where you can install a maximum of 8GB RAM. This one works for meADATA 8GB DDR3 1600MHz AD3S1600W8G11-R Laptop Memory
GAMING: As soon as I installed the additional RAM, I tested it with GTA V and Assasin's Creed Syndicate. These games run smoothly at 25-35FPS without any hassles (that too without the GeForce Experience app installed).
All in all, if you are concerned about creating a WIFI hotspot from this laptop, forget it, you can't. Run netsh wlan show drivers on Windows and it'll show Hosted Network Supported: No
But if you can afford an external USB WiFi Adapter to create an hotspot, this is a great laptop for the VFM..
Amazing delivery by Amazon
by Anurag Parvekar on 2016-03-02
Amazing delivery by Amazon, took less than 12 hrs. Hats off. Clean package. Laptop is great. Its a DOS, so you need to install windows 10 by yourself or at some shop. I installed windows 8 but couldn't find the drivers from Asus. So moved to windows 10. Got all the needed drivers. Runs smoothly. So far haven't played any games. Bang for the bucks. Go for it. Will update the review after a month's usage...
by Kausik K. on 2016-04-12
Guys this is the best config one can get under 40k , neither lenovo nor hp has similar hardware at this price.
Also unlike other DOS laptops, you don't need to hunt drivers in websites.
This comes with CD and compatible with only win 10. So install win 10 x64 bit and enjoy. This resolution is also good and most games play well at this resolution. 1360 . its neither hd nor full hd, its in middle.
amazing Asus product...
by gunasekar on 2016-03-26
Wonderfull product from Asus..
About product: this laptop is very good in the aspects of build quality, configurations, good battery backup, design and brand, You may get this configuration laptop in 40 k in other brands but not with nvidia graphic card which is plus point to be consider..Asus have thier own components inside like motherboard....Only draw back is there is no indicator light for caps and numlock..and drivers won't work for win 8 or 8.1.. u hv to install win 10 and install drivers in CD provided by asus or else Bluetooth, touchpad, WiFi etc won't work..
by Arun on 2016-03-18
This is one of the best Laptops in the market. I have a Dell Inspiron, HP540, apart from this. Though the other two are said to be 15 inches, this 1.56 appears to be much bigger in size. However, the weight is considerably lesser than the other two. You can increase the RAM but as of now I am quiet satisfied with 4 GB. The only thing missing is bacllit keyboard but I can manage with the on screen light. The Laptop is also sleek in the sense that the width is much lesser. I got 2 years Warranty with the produce, though I bought it from a vendor.
To put it simply, Go for it.
It's a good Laptop, packing by Amazon is superb (as always)
by Amazon Customer on 2016-04-06
It's a good Laptop, packing by Amazon is superb (as always). RAM is 4GB which we can upgrade later on. The graphics card is smooth.
by Gaurav Chauhan on 2016-03-22
Amazing laptop. Although Rs. 250 cheaper now, I think I got the best buy for my price. For this configuration, this is the best machine you can get. Do buy if you're looking for such laptop! Amazon, thank you so much for a neat and timely delivery. Amazon is the new "Trust"!
by Amazon Customer on 2016-04-05
Its been a month and its working absolutely fine.
One thing is not good about this laptop is because of its matt finish whenever one use keywoard the palm placed area gets sweaty . I mean too sweaty every time I use for 5. Min.
And one. Can see liquid sweat all over its mat finish palm placement area.
Else its quite eye catching and awesome laptop for normal gaming to ample work. Can handle normal to high eoutine task easily. Can handle games from meduim to high easily.
Very good product for this price
by Amazon Customer on 2016-04-13

1. Slim and average weight
2. Graphics card at this low price
3. Battery peroformance is good.
1. Power On and other LEDs are not visible from top. You should lower your head to see whether powered on or not
2. No LED for Power putton, CapsLock, NumLock
