Happy New Year everyone! This will be the last video of 2017! Also Two things. 1. I apologize for the screen flickering when I show the display. For some reason this display did not like my camera. No matter what shutter speed I set it too. 2. In the beginning I said "End of 2018" clearly meant to say 2017! = ) Thanks for all the support guys! Lots of great stuff coming in the new year.
Hi Brad, no just basic spreadsheets, no background tasks. Only running Word or excel, wifi on, in same room as router, and light web browser use. seems to last on about 6 hours, not a full day of work. the 9 hours of video is on loop, no wifi. any idea if it's the battery or something else? thanks Brad
I have Asus ZenBook UX430UA. And there are few things I'm going mad of. First -- figerprint scanner is VERY bad. My Galaxy Note 8 recognizes my finger each time without any problems, but my ZenBook recognizes me only 1 time of 4-5. And second thing -- I hear a coil noice from my laptop when touching touchpad, scrolling browser window etc. It sounds like HDD drive, but this ZenBook equipped with SSD and sound is very annoying. And one more thing -- pre-installed Windows 10 Home have very limited energy settings, for example I can not change when my laptop will shut down after sleep. It also can turn on while it's in the bag and drain battery. So, NO ZEN WITH THIS ZENBOOK! My previous Lenovo ThinkPad x240 was much better. My next laptop will be Microsoft Surface Book 2 or Lenovo X1 Carbon.
Excellent ultrabook at an affordable price with respectable specs to bring with you 'on the go'. Definitely way better for me than a tablet. Screw the iPad or other Android tablets, the ZenBook is a superb all in one that does it for me. Great review as always Matthew. Cheers.
Just bought this exact machine! Such a good machine and the fact that it has the mx150 on such a light and portable device is a such a plus! Looks so nice, decided this over a macbook pro and am so happy.
Im considering between this and the smaller UX331UN, which is about $100 more expensive in Singapore. Does anyone know apart from the:
- location of the fingerprint scanner,
- 331UN has a HDMI port as appose to the 430UN with the micro hdmi,
- 331UN has 2, USB 3.1ports appose to the 430UN with 1 USB 3.1 port and 1 USB 2 port.
How does it compare in terms of performance and battery life? Is it the same?
I would like to know if the $100 ad on for the points i've mentioned above are worth it.
Appreciate if anyone could help me out with this problem! =D
I found this model cheaper at $1000 dollars. Models at this price don't have thunderbolt 3 so it'd probably beat it out if its important enough to you.
Have you done an HP Envy review, laptopmag gave that 106% and stated it didnt "POP" like with the Asus here. Im wondering if you can think of any other reasons your spider colourimeter might be off? Its not just laptopmag as fraggle said it appears to be well over 100% in most reviews. Very interested to know whats going on :-)
From Laptopmag, you know these guys are very critical of anything non apple but they got 129%sRGB "The ZenBook UX430UA's 14-inch, 1080p display is a feast for the eyes, filled with vibrant colors and detailed images. When I watched a trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, the green in Hela's costume and Thor's skin really stood out, as did the blue shade of Valkyrie's cape. Fine details, like the stubble in Bruce Banner's beard and the markings on Thor's armor, were sharp and easy to make out."
Interesting because its the same screen used by others, yours is really really low in gamut. Im not sure why the discrepancy, very hard to explain as panels generally dont come out with massive differences. I wonder if the Asus splendid software may have had anything to do with it.
i bought this laptop for college, and i do like it. the only think that annoys me sometimes is the air thingy, it does make a super weird sound sometimes, but it's not that hard. after all, i think it's a great laptop and it super fast. the battery is good, but i don't think it reaches the 8-10 hours, more about 6. while i was writing this i saw that i don't have te UX but the BX lol. bx430ua is the one i own and it greaaat.

everything is in dutch bc i felt too lazy to change it, the price was 949 euro's xx
4gb? if you want to listen to some music on youtube and have some more tabs open + a couple of productivity programs like word and onenote you're gonna fill up the 4gb without even trying. 8gb is a nice balance though.
I got this computer for a really good price on boxing day. So far I absolutely love it. As a student, it completely suits my needs. I was worried about the fan noise complaint that often shows up in reviews, and its true, the fan does come on for seemingly no good reason once in a while, but it's not nearly as loud as I thought it would be. Also, I think the new 8th gen processor eats up some of the battery because mine doesn't seem to last as long as those reviewers'. Still, it lasts long enough for me. I'm really happy with my purchase.
