Customer Reviews

nice, rather slim machine Review by GLJ
Good for the price. Lower temps could help (Posted on 4/25/2017)
Great product for this value Review by Jason
I had G751JT (a huge and heavy Asus Rog laptop that would break my back whenever I carry it in my backpack) but decided to upgrade to this smaller and efficient GE72VR with GTX1060 which made my G751 with GTX970m look so unworthy. The price:performance ratio is so much better on GE72VR compared to when I bought G751JT model.
(The one I got from CUK is with 512GB of SSD with 16GB ram upgrade, with $100 discount.)

The laptop itself is slim and easy to carry in a normal 17.3 inch backpack unlike my previous huge G751JT.
The fan is louder than G751JT when gaming due to its compact design but seems to keep the temperatures around 70C on CPU and even lower on GPU without coolerboost on. (I use a cooling pad)
Just make sure to uninstall bloatware, update Windows 10, then reinstall all drivers to make it run as it should be.

So far I am so happy with this product and I hope it lasts at least 3 years without problem.
If you are looking for an affordable gaming laptops, I recommend the GE62VR/72VR series from CUK.

P.S. CUK customer service was so kind enough to answer all my questions and even called UPS to verify if certain method of delivery is possible. (Posted on 3/3/2017)
