The laptop is fast, snappy, and boots up extremely quickly, courtesy the SSD present in it. The RGB keyboard is much more basic than I expected, but when turned out with the right colors, it makes the device look like eye candy. The keys are nice to type with, though there is a noticable bend in the keyboard if you push it down a little, which means that it was not built as it should have been. However I think that decreasing the stars for a keyboard that feels nice to the touch is criminal when it gets the job done.
When gaming, the laptop performs as it should perform. Games like Valorant, Skyrim, and Stellaris seem to work well with no lagging or FPS drops. The CPU temp seems to hit the 75° - 80°c range when I play Valorant, however, this does not translate to lower frames. I also noticed that when you're playing games on Turbo mode, the fans tend to be noticeably loud, and you'll find that they sound like a jet airplane passing a few kilometers away from you. I don't have any problem with this, and just mentioned this to say that this sound is completely normal and is a sign that the fan is doing it's job.
The model in question (BQ596T) seems to be a newer variant, as if you do a Google search, you'll find very little to no information information about it. I found this variant of the ASUS TUF series while looking at laptops in the 50-60k range on Amazon. Also, there are reports of the fan starting to sound like a razor blade for no reason. The fix for this is cleaning the insides of the device with canned air, while focussing on the fans for this. Also, make sure you use the silent mode for your fans when you're not gaming - and use Performance and Turbo mode for resource intensive tasks. I do need to note that I've not found any thing being said about the rattling problem for any models in the TUF family in India. I've only found this after scouring through different forums online.
That being said, if you're planning to purchase this device I think that it's only worthwhile at around the 50-53k price range, as there are better laptops with i5 Gen 8 and 9 processors you can find in the upper price ranges, and even the Ryzen 4000+ models. I am giving it 5 stars as the model works better than expected and any problems I have with the laptop are nitpicked. But as I'm writing this review after one day, take it with a grain of salt.
I will update this review as I continue to use this laptop over the next few months.
Update: It's been two weeks. I have encounterd two minor problems, the bluetooth suddenly dissapeared and the Wi-fi shows "No Internet" even though there is nothing wrong with the Wi-Fi on my other devices. I managed to solve the bluetooth problem by reverting the laptop to a previous state, where as I am yet to solve the Wi-fi problem. I plan on doing this by updating the drivers. Since these problems were minor and solvable, grading the device down by a star for it would be nitpicking.
I have also attached a screenshot of the laptop running The Witcher 3 and Stellaris. It has handled GTA V, The Witcher 3, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Stellaris, Skyrim, and Valorant (which I play the most) without any hitches. I have attached a screenshot of No Man's Sky, which I'm pleased to say, runs perfectly with a few minor hitches occasionally.
Update: November 23rd, 2020.
Thought I'd update this review since it has been three months since I purchased my device. Mostly because I have to write in detail about the games I've managed to play, along with the service response. Please note that the laptop needed servicing for my own fault, and not because of any defect in the device.
I've been able to play the following titles with 60 frames a second without any issues:
GTA V, Fallout 4, Watch_Dogs_2, Civilization 6, Metro: Exodus, Borderlands:The Pre Sequel, Rising Storm: Vietnam, Warhammer: Gladius, Europa Universalis 4, Stellaris, Sleeping Dogs, Yakuza Zero, Fallout New Vegas, Skyrim:SE, The Witcher 3, No Man's Sky, Rocket League, Dota 2, Counterstrike, Fall Guys, and, Assetto Corsa.
The only titles I had issues running at first were Metro: Last Exodus and Mafia III. Metro Exodus was not difficult to fix, as I had to only decrease the settings to low. However, I'm unable to get a smooth 60 FPS experience even though the game is very playable. The game also tends to stutter very occasionally.
However, Mafia III had a lot more complicated fix. I had to go into the Nvidia settings and change a lot of the settings that would help boost the performance while running the game. While the game does give 50+ FPS, I think that the issue here has more to do with the bad optimization of the game over the laptop underperforming here. If you want to optimize the game on your own, please watch Ragnos1997's video on the same, as the instructions are beyond the scope of the review.
While I had planned to write a review update at around the 3 month-mark, what spurred me to update the review was an unfortunate incident that happened after midnight on Friday, 20th November at around 12:30. While I was browsing the internet after a long day of work, I went to grab my water bottle to drink water. However, while doing this, my bottle fell from my hands and spilled onto the laptop. This was a terrible incident to happen, as it was a 3 month old laptop which I did not have it's EMI paid off yet. When I called up ASUS Support the next day, they informed me that my warranty was voided till the condition of the day laptop after the repairs was ascertained, as the warranty they provided did not cover liquid damage and physical damage, and any future problems caused could potentially happen due to the damage the laptop underwent. I was under the impression that the warranty did cover accidental damage, so the situation was a bummer. They told me that any repairs done to the laptop would be charged out of warranty and directed me to the nearest service center, which was TVS electronics in Goregaon, Mumbai. When I called the service center up, I was instructed to come there immediately and get the laptop checked.
When I had gotten there, the engineer who I had spoken to over the phone, along with the rest of the staff members, were kind and patient, even though both me and my mother, who went over there were visibly distraught at the idea of having spent 50k on a bricked laptop. The technician who worked on the laptop, Ashid Rai, had complied with our request to service the laptop in front of us, and was very forthcoming about the fact that the laptop might not work even after he removed all the water under the keyboard. He was more than happy to answer the questions I had about the internal components of the laptop. While they did use a strange brush to clean the internals over using a cotton bud, (as they seemed to have run out of it), I appreciated how he tried to do the best he could to make sure the laptop was up and running. He instructed us to check the laptop after three days, and (correctly) did not give us any guarantees over whether the laptop would run or not.
When I checked if the laptop was working on not, on the night of Sunday, 22nd of November at 9:00 PM, I was pleased to find that the laptop was running well, which says a lot about the "TUFness" of the laptop. The buttons on the keyboard, the RGB lighting, the trackpad, the speakers, the Wi-Fi, the Bluetooth, and the screen worked like they usually. What was unfortunate, however, was that my laptop's SATA HDD was not being detected anymore, which in all likelihood means I'll have to get it replaced. As of when I'm writing this review, I'm still to contact the service center and receive further instructions. When I get the issue completely resolved, I'll update the review accordingly, with the price of the components and the service charges. I will not downgrade the score I've given since the issues pertaining to the laptop are my fault, and not the fault of the laptop.
Note: While the laptop is made by Asus, a Taiwanese company, the laptop has been manufactured in China.
Just go for it without thinking.
Only and only con is the weight ( not too much keeping in mind that it is a gaming laptop )
The RGB backlit is just amazing. ( As soon as I ordered the product went out of stock, because imports have reduced from China)
Everything is best ( as mentioned by Amazon)
I noticed a little bit of screen bleeding at the bottom , but it is a common phenomena ( as panels work on these panel only ) u will notice it only when the brightness is Max and the screen is Totally black.
Pro tip : If want to use MS office , just install LiberOffice ( better than MS office)
It will aslo save around 2.5k
• This laptop does show 7.81 GB of available ram out of 8 GB, unlike some other ryzen laptops where only about 6 Gigs of memory is available for use.
• It has both; an amd vega gpu and a nvidia gtx 1650
• The keyboard surface of the laptop does not get hot while gaming. Even though the bottom gets hot which is normal, and the hot air goes out through back vents, so keeping the laptop on a soft surface (like bed) does not block airflow that much.
• All the USB and display ports are on the same side which is a bummer, I would have liked at least one usb on the other side.
• The speaker is good but not very loud, which expected from 'gaming laptops'.
I am using this laptop daily and will update the review if I find any more points to address later on.
Overall get product. Definitely worth the purchase, considering other 1650 laptops are so pricey.
After 15 days :-
Problems I had :-
backlight bleeding in some corners
The charging doesn't last that long,only 4-5 hours during productivity and 2 hours in gaming
The fan in turbo mode bit louder than expected .
The viewing angles are not that good they are better in lenovo l340 and aslo acer nitro 5 which my friends have .
The touchpad is the worst .
The built quality is not great bit of flex on screen and keyboard .
The speakers are bad , but I mostly use headphones so it doesn't matter much to me.
It is really fast and works very wel during multitasking .
The games are fast and give upto 60fps in hd mode with hight network connection.
The key travel is great .
It doesn't heat up as expected , most reviews say it heats up . Well it's gaming laptop what do you expect.
It's good for both worlds multi-tasking , gaming .
I have 1tb hdd + 256gb SSD variant ... Which is enough for everything I want .
The hinge is good and smooth but it would have been good if it had 180 degree bend .
Personal opinion : buy it in the store if it is for 50k or less .
