We’ve recommended Asus gaming laptops like the ROG Strix in the past because of how well they perform. That hasn’t been the case with the TUF Gaming series, which is fairly new and aims to make Asus gaming laptops less expensive.

Asus’s TUF Gaming laptops are an attempt to bridge the gap between high-end gaming laptops and regular notebooks. The company had a big plan, but with this series, they haven’t made a lot of progress. You may have heard of cheaper gaming laptops from companies like Acer, Dell, etc., but have you heard of TUF Gaming series? What the heck is that?

Well, Asus wants to change that when they release their new TUF Gaming laptops in India. In fact, they sent us a unit to check out and see how we like it.

Price Of Asus Tuf fx505

So, I’ve been carrying around the 1,29,990 Asus TUF Gaming FX505 laptop for a few days to see if it really is better than its predecessors. At first, I thought it was pretty good. But I wanted to put it through its paces and see if it’s really something I could recommend to people who want to buy a good laptop that can also run some games at playable settings. So, is it a good idea to buy this laptop? So, let’s find out –

Specs for the Asus TUF Gaming FX505

Before I start my review, I think it would be best to talk about the hardware specs. The version of the laptop being reviewed has an 8th-Generation Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM, along with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU. The price for this version is 1,29,990. Here’s a quick list of what the FX505 can do:

I’d also like to point out that you can buy a cheaper version with an Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM, and a GTX 1050 Ti. That will cost you 79,990. We’ll talk about it some more at the end.

Design and Build Quality of the Asus TUF Gaming FX505

As soon as I took the laptop out of the box, the first thing I noticed was how big it was. I don’t know how to explain how nice it is to write about a gaming laptop that doesn’t look like a big slab. No, gaming laptops don’t have to be big and heavy like they used to be.

Still, most of them look like they came from another planet, with bright RGB lights coming out of the sides. What’s inside the laptop is more important than how many RGB lights are on the outside. As you can see, Asus seems to know what I’m talking about.

Their TUF Gaming FX505 laptops look like regular laptops with a bit of style, but they still have enough power to easily handle games and other tasks that use a lot of resources.

When you open the lid with one hand (yes, you can, and I’ll have a special place for every laptop that lets me do that), you’ll see a compact body with a full-sized keyboard and a big trackpad. The FX505 looks a lot like the models that came before it. It has a sharp body and is well-made, which makes me feel good when I use it.

The FX505 doesn’t have RGB lighting all over the body like some other laptops do (looking at you, Alienware!). Instead, it only has RGB lighting on the keyboard. It’s just the right amount of RGB for a laptop, in my opinion. As I said before, I don’t want to feel like I found something from another planet. This is perfect.

Asus TUF Gaming FX505: Overview 

Asus is pretty sure about how well its TUF Gaming is made. It says that these laptops have passed a series of tough MIL-STD-810G tests, including exposure to solar radiation and high altitude, among other things. No matter how much I want to believe that, I don’t think I can fully agree with it.

I didn’t even need to use the computer for a long time to come to this conclusion. As soon as I opened the laptop and started typing random words to test the keyboard, as I do with every new laptop, I saw the first problem: the keyboard deck was very thin and could break easily. So far as I can tell, my unit doesn’t have the metal plate under the keys to make it stronger. This makes it feel cheap and flimsy. It’s not so bad that I feel like it’s going to give up on me, but it is weak and flimsy. So weak that I had to spend a whole paragraph ranting about it. But let’s move on. No, I didn’t say that. Did I also tell you about the thin display panel?

I have been using the laptop that Asus calls “Gold Steel.” But you can also buy versions called “Red Fusion” or “Red Matter,” which have a lot of red parts. I’m not a big fan of red elements, so I liked playing the Gold Steel variant.

Connectivity on the Asus TUF Gaming FX505

The FX505 is at best average when it comes to connectivity. It has one USB 2.0 port, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, and HDMI 2.0 for your gaming accessories. You also get a LAN port and a charging port. All of these are on the left side of the body, so they don’t get in the way of using the mouse with your right hand.

I would have loved to see more ports like USB Type-C, a mini Display Port, etc. So, no, it doesn’t have every port you could want, but it has all the big ones and as many as any gamer could want.

Asus TUF Gaming FX505: Display

The TN screen on the FX505’s predecessor wasn’t well liked, so I’m glad Asus went with an IPS screen this time. You can even buy a panel with a refresh rate of 144Hz, which is what I have here. The higher refresh rate makes it easier to use the interface. It’s clearly better, and you can feel the difference just by moving the cursor. Also, when you play games with the right settings, it will lead to smoother frame rates.

It’s a 15.6-inch FHD screen with 72 percent NTSC and LED backlighting. I’m also glad that Asus has stopped making screens that are too shiny and distracting. It has a matte (non-reflective) panel and great viewing angles. Asus says that the screen can show all of the colours in the sRGB range. And from what I’ve seen, the colours are nice and bright, and the blacks are deep and dark enough to play games and watch movies.

The keyboard on the Asus TUF Gaming FX505

I’m a writer for a living, so a bad keyboard on a laptop is a deal-breaker for me. The keyboard on the FX505 is a good one for people who type. The keys are quiet and move around a fair amount. It has n-key rollover, and it says that it can be pressed 20 million times in a lifetime.

I like that Asus added a full-size keyboard, but I can’t get over how small the arrow and NumPad keys are. As you can see, they don’t have as much room as the other alphabet keys.

As I said before, it’s an RGB-backlit keyboard, and the pre-installed AURA software lets you change the lighting in each of the four zones. The WASD keys are made of clear plastic, the same material that some ROG Strix laptop keys are made of.

You can choose from four different lighting effects with the AURA software: static, breathing, colour cycle, and strobe. You can also choose from more than 16 million colours for the lights. The controls, on the other hand, are pretty simple. So, think of it as a fun feature that you probably won’t use very often.
