1.0 out of 5 stars not suitable for work, 23 Feb 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asus X552CL-SX037H 15.6-inch Laptop (Intel Core i3-3217U 1.8GHz Processor, 6GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, DVD-RW, NVIDIA Geforce GT710M, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
glare screen makes it unusable for work so it stays on the shelf.
Be aware that most of this cheap stuff comes with glare screens these days.
Drive is quite noisy comparing to other laptops I have.
Keyboard is clunky with its numeric keypad and small enter. Who the hell is using numeric keypad on laptops designed for entertainment? Insert key must be used with function key.

So if you are looking for a laptop to play movies or do some occasional office work in a dark room it may be good.
Otherwise you have better choices out there.

I can highly recommend an anti-glare film, such as the 15.6" inch Anti-Glare Screen Protector (but check the exact dimensions against your particular laptop first). It's not quite as good as a factory-fitted anti reflection coating, but it's a vast improvement over a glossy screen. It's quite possible to apply the film without bubbles if a bit of care is taken.

Or just pay attention to screen type and pick the one you want, just because you don't like glossy doesn't make it a bad display. Glossy screens reflect office lights yes, but also result in a perceived increase in contrast, and can also provide greater visibility in sunlight than matt screens.
