Terrible experience with ASUS
Short version – My previous ASUS Vivobook, bought last July, had to be returned because both Best Buy and ASUS could not get it to recognize a second internal drive.
My current ASUS (Vivobook 15 X513EA) has problems where the keyboard backlighting times out and will not come back on when activity is detected. When it dies, it also takes the fingerprint reader with it.
Many of my thousands of photos display with an unnatural red or orange hue (they display fine on two other laptops).
I frequently get timeouts followed by blue screen of death when watching youtube videos. Microsoft has confirmed this as a fault in the audio device. Related – about a third of the time when I start a video in VLC Media Player, there is no audio. Restarting VLC generally resolves this.
Plus my wife is having infrequent but recurring problems with the touchpad on her Vivobook Flip 14.
ASUS used to make decent laptops but the last three have been decidedly substandard.
