4.0 out of 5 stars The new UX330UA with Kaby Lake - What an improvement!, November 24, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS ZenBook UX330UA-AH54 13.3-inch LCD Ultra-Slim Laptop (Core i5 Processor, 8GB DDR3, 256GB SSD, Windows 10) w/ Harman Kardon Audio, Backlit keyboard, Fingerprint Reader (Personal Computers)
ASUS almost nailed it with this model... And yes, it is an excellent upgrade from the previous model: UX305UA. However, there is one major flaw, which resulted in the return of the system after a few days. Want to learn more? Please continue reading. I'll make this as brief and to the point as possible:

Build quality: (4.9/5)
Excellent build quality for the price. You will have an entirely aluminum body (except the bottom cover) which makes it very sturdy.

Display: (4.2/5)
The FHD display is a decent 1080p display. There seems to be less light-bleed and improved color contrast when compared to the previous model, which is good. The new profiles for switching display modes is quite nice, too. Overall, the display is much improved over the Skylake model and I am very happy with this laptop thus far.

Keyboard, Trackpad, Fingerprint Reader: (4.8/5)
The keyboard is very much improved over the previous model. It is even back-lit, which is a... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan problem fix, February 9, 2017
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS ZenBook UX330UA-AH54 13.3-inch LCD Ultra-Slim Laptop (Core i5 Processor, 8GB DDR3, 256GB SSD, Windows 10) w/ Harman Kardon Audio, Backlit keyboard, Fingerprint Reader (Personal Computers)
Had this laptop for a few weeks now and it runs great.
However, I found that the fan was making quite a lot of noise. I opened the laptop up and found that the noise was not the fan but a metal cable that runs over the fan causing the loud noise as it vibrates. After fastening the cable down, the noise no longer occurs.
Removing the backplate is easy, just remove the visible screws and two screws under the rubber feet. You'll see the cable resting just above the fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great ultrabook for people who just want a solid built ultra-portable machine with plenty of power under the hood., December 7, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS ZenBook UX330UA-AH54 13.3-inch LCD Ultra-Slim Laptop (Core i5 Processor, 8GB DDR3, 256GB SSD, Windows 10) w/ Harman Kardon Audio, Backlit keyboard, Fingerprint Reader (Personal Computers)
This review is for the UX330UA (core i5-7200U version).

Amazon, you really need to stop lumping multiple products in the same listing, its confusing and totally skews the overall rating system.

ASUS, seriously guys, update your product specifications on your site and stop with the confusing model numbers. I couldn't find any additional info on this laptop, other than the amazon listing.

I've had this laptop for the better part of a week now, I can answer any questions on it.

PROS:

The screen is IPS and looks fantastic, very little light bleed (the spectre x360 has a better display IMO, but is also more expensive). Colors and contrast look great.

Build quality is great, solid aluminum typical zenbook construction (except the bezel is plastic). The size is pretty amazing too, despite the larger bezels. Its super light and thin. Keyboard is great, backlit with an auto-light sensor (sensor can be shutoff). The touch-pad... Read more
