An ALMOST Perfect Ryzen Ultrabook - ASUS ZenBook 14 Review

The ASUS ZenBook 14 with AMD Ryzen 4700U processor is one of the best ultrabooks we've test. It has a super long battery life, amazing performance benchmarks for the 4700U and a pretty low price. But the Zenbook 14 UM425IA release date and limited availability might make it really hard to find and we also found some other problems with the ASUS notebook that make it fall just short of being the best Ryzen laptop of 2020.

I'm using this laptop and damn, this is really good so far. I was also frustrated at the headphone jack at first, but I got used to using the dongle to connect my wired earphones, and it's fine.

If you're doing casual things with this laptop, the battery is just so good you'll get tired before it ran out. Honestly, superb battery

Bought this Laptop based off this review for $849 during Black Friday. 4700U 16gb 1tb nvme and i am thoroughly impressed. The screen brightness was something i needed to get used to since i was coming from a XPS 13 4k touch display, but for the price and specs i think most people won't have an issue. I haven't had any crashes or blue screens or problems waking up from sleep, which i was afraid of. All in all very happy with the purchase. Audio jack dongle is a plus, i rarely use headphones.
Ryebread095 22 दिवसांपूर्वी
I have begrudgingly moved to wireless headphones since most phones worth anything these days don't have headphone jacks. The only headphones I use with a wire these days has a 1/4 inch input anyway, and no mobile device, phone or laptop, has a port for that

Build quality has always been great with Asus, especially Zenbook series, right from the UX31 around 7 years ago. I still have one that looks new. That model has metal all over, so it still looks shiny and new. Yes it has some dents after falling on the street a couple of times. Even the inside is similar, not much changed in the layout. They we're already giving that sleek leather case back then. Headphone jack? I use USB headset.

Wtf is up with cellphones and now laptops eliminating headphone jack. Just because their daddy Apple did it, they are doing it. Majority of the people still wants and use headphone jack. And in developing countries, all of them needs headphone jack. What a dumb trend tbh.

Dude, I have a different Asus laptop (ux431fa) and I have that sound issue. I'll be playing something and the sound goes dead and the only way to get it back is to put my computer to sleep (or restart) and then it comes backs on. Super annoying!

Sharp corners, terrible screen uniformity, screen bleed (so not great for any color accurate work) no 3.5mm input, But otherwise, a lovey little machine. I get no blue screen, fan doesn't ever blast, can hardly hear it, never gets hot. From the time I opened the box, I wiped and did a fresh install. Been running well.

My review on UM425IA-AM025 model 4500u/8gb/256gb. (sorry, I'm using translator) Advantages The laptop is very good in many ways, which you can read in other reviews, but among those that I did not see and seemed to me the most interesting: The lid opens with one hand, which I think is great There are gestures on the touchpad, among which there is a swipe from the upper left corner to the center to open the calculator (and the same gesture to close it) wifi 6 is so fast that in my city it is enough for another 10 years to come. (although I only checked on a wifi 5 router) But unfortunately it has very strong disadvantages: disadvantages The edges of the top cover are very scratched. Literally any effort by any piece of iron towards these shiny edges and there will be a scratch Fingerprints and distinct dust are easily collected on the top cover (except for the obvious, I mean that the texture of the cover is susceptible to dust collection). On my copy, after two months of use, the cooling system began to make noise. It begins to crackle as the cooling system starts to work. The rubber bands get clogged with dust very quickly and he can quickly begin to ride on the table (apparently due to the light weight). Although the lid opens with one hand, if you open the laptop 90 degrees and then let the laptop tilt so that the lid hangs down, the screen will open to its limit. there is nothing in the kit at all except a laptop and a charger, I am not very versed in aux to type-c adapters, but it does not fit from the phone and it asks for a digital, not an analog adapter, and I have not seen such in stores. the latter is more of a wish than a minus, but if the lower part (where the air intake is located) were aluminum and were part of the cooling system, then the operating temperature would be much better. Comment the laptop has a lot of amazing sides and it almost became my best friend among my devices, but if the cooling situation does not improve after blowing it with compressed air, then you will have to hand it over under warranty :(

My response to finding out there was no headphone jack "Wireless headphones" so no big deal... Me remembering that all my external speaker options have a HJ. "DAMN IT!!!" Too late already bought one. Looks like it's more money for wireless speakers. That sleep issue though.

I have an Asus Zenbook 14 for 4 months now and so far I have had zero issues. I honestly love it and it might be one of the best laptops I have worked with! Personally, I never for once needed the headphone jack because I use wireless earbuds anyway. So it really depends on your needs but overall for the price, it's incredible!

I saw a lot of the comments about not having the headphone jack. At first I was really pissed as everyone else. Then I think about it further 🤔 Honestly, with the rate I'm going with Bluetooth headphones, I personally wouldn't mind it AS LONG as I have that USB-C dongle which I'd probably seldom use Edit: is this what Apple wants people's thought process be when they initially removed the headphone jack? 🤦‍♂️ Jeez

I''m pretty late with technology. But i will say that the QCC 3020 chip has made TWS earbuds very accessible. So no headphone jack is okay. And if your like me, you use 1 ear piece mostly (which means zero down time). Add a magnetic usb to it. And you are sweet to go.
