A decent laptop with Anti-Glare screen
by Kris Axe on 2014-01-20
I was looking for a laptop that had an nvidia graphics card, a 3rd generation intel iX processor and most importantly an anti-glare screen. And this was the only laptop I was able to find in the market, after a 3 month search both offline and online (Samsung NP300E5X-S03IN was out of stock everywhere), that met all the above requirements. Using glossy screens left me frustrated, as they restrict the usage significantly. And unfortunately none of the laptop makers now a days seem to bother about this aspect. Apple gives its customers a choice between glossy and anti-glare screens on all their models. Having used this laptop for a little over a week now, here's my take:
1. Anti-glare screen
2. Decent build quality (but the hinges are made out of plastic)
3. Soft-touch Chiclet keyboard
4. Wifi has good range (Atheros AR9485WB-EG)
5. Does not become hot after long usage, thanks to the low-voltage processor
1. Finding it hard to use the mouse buttons on the touchpad
2. Only 2 USB ports (1x2.0 USB and 1x3.0 USB port)
3. No backlight for the keyboard
4. The caps-lock, num-lock LED's are noticeable only in the dark
5. 2.3 kg
The GeForce GT 720M graphics card on this laptop is the one that was released on 25th December 2013 and has 192 shader units (CUDA cores) clocked in at 719 MHz as against the previous one with 96 shader units clocked in at 625 MHz. But the memory bus still remains at 64 bit.
Dark Gray paint peeling issue
by Vivek on 2014-01-31
I would advise you against buying this laptop. This model (dark grey color) is no longer available in the physical stores since the dark grey paint tends to peel off after a while. The owner of the store I visited was honest enough to tell me about this issue.
On the other hand, the other colors, with the exact same configuration seems to be a quality product, and may be worth your money.
GooD product works fine but it does have issues:-

by Flipkart Customer on 2014-05-09
This is the best laptop that I could find in this budget. The main problem that I am facing is the USB porblem. The laptop is configured with two USB ports side by side. And it is very difficult to use 2 USB devices at the same time. Other than this, the laptop is well configured and fun to use.

asus k55v review after using nearly 2 years....
by prateep mukherjee on 2015-03-18
laptop is very good..im a very rough user..it runs nearly 16 hrs a day..no problem till now.. it runs more than 3 hrs after fully charged.. im not a gamer so i dont know how it works on heavy graphics game..but matlab ,autocad,virtual os, and many other softwares like this run smoothly at a time..i think this will be enough for u.. no heating problem..
con: sound is not loud but quality is good because of altec-lansing speaker..
by DJ SINGH on 2014-05-04
This machine is wonderful. It has a graphics card with 2gb memory and its GPU bandwidth is 28.8gb/s which is quite impressive while running latest games. No other company is offering such graphics card within such a price range. And most importantly its battery churns out 5 hrs of backup easily on normal use(programming for instance).
Never gets heat up... As it has in built additional pipeline system which cools it better.
Don't buy from Flipkart, you can get a better deal from Asus authorized Dealer .. I bought this 2 days back for 34000/- with carry back pack.
So, buy it or not ... I don't give a Shitt!!!
A Laptop which worthmore than its price tag
by Jovis Aloor on 2014-01-27
actually you could get the same laptop for 33k from flipkart itself link is provided below (or search for ASUS X550CC-XX072D X SERIES LAPTOP)
fist of all the ..for the first time i was disappointed with the service of flip kart .this model was not available in Kerala .In fact every asus laptop listed in flipkart is not available in kerala.so i had buy it from bombay ...but delivery and everything was perfect just like always.(but it would be great if you'd have provided bag with it...
now lets get to the point THE REVIEW
first of all the laptop is awesome for the price..actually i got it for 30k(ihad a hdfc card offer)
for this price no other company gives you such prices
before getting to build quality lets straight away go to performance
the i3(3rdgen) processor under the hood is actually doing its job perfectly .i'm aperson who plays games a lot and also use softwares like Adobe Ps,Ae frequently.and for me this laptop is doinggreat.almost every new games worked in it decentlyi'm listing a few games i played below
*Assassin's Creed IV - Black Flag--------works in high graph ,but perfect in med graph
*NFS Rivals-woks perfectly
*splintercell blacklist-work perfectly in med graph
*COD BlackOPS-works perfectly
one thing i'm not happy with is the wifi...in my laptopits not getting range well...but others who hav the same lap do get it perfectly.and the most disturbing thing inthis laptop is its spacebar it gives me headache .it doesnt works if we press on the bottom of the space bar.sowhile we are typinga bigparagraph mostof the time space doesn't work
and lets get to the build quality
build quality is pretty decent
the ring grooves in the laptop givesit a stylish look and perfectfor holding in your hands
the chicklet keybord is awsome
in other reviews everyone blamesits track pad but in fact ilove those
the track pad is actually quite big.so its perfect for multi finger gesture
Awesome Laptop From ASUS
by Abhishek on 2013-12-31
This laptop is very good for gaming and normal usage. It has intel core i3 3217u processor which uses just 17 watt power. Battery backup is 3-4 hours because it is of just 4 cell. If it was 6 cell battery then backup would be around 5-6 hours with normal usage. In market you will get it for 33000 which is around 2500 rupees less than flipkart's price. If you are good at bargaining then you can get it at an affordable price.

Touchpad always making problems and not working properly in sometimes. Bt d service center person's don't agree with that. They are saying there isn't any problems with the touch pad...
Nice laptop under 30,000.
by Suhita Basumallik on 2014-11-13
I have not yet loaded this laptop with any heavy programmes, but sound and display is really good! It takes less than 2 seconds to boot and shutdown. Value for money.
