      Near perfect thin and light laptop, December 4, 2009

      Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
      This review is from: ASUS UL30Vt-X1 Thin and Light 13.3-Inch Black Laptop (11 Hours of Battery Life) (Personal Computers)

      I had been excited about the ULxxVT series from Asus since they were first announced a couple months ago. I originally purchased the UL80VT back when it was released in October but ultimately returned it due to a very noticeable dead pixel right in the middle of the screen. This was probably for the best as a week with the UL80VT made me realize it was bigger then I needed and I didn’t really have much use for the optical drive.

      Due to my brief ownership of the UL80VT I knew certain things to expect with the UL30VT but I have to say the UL30VT has exceeded my expectations. While I never felt the build quality was bad on the UL80VT it’s much better on the smaller UL30VT. Clearly due to the smaller frame everything is quite a bit more solid as there is almost no chasis flex at all. The keyboard is okay. Everything is well spaced although the small right shift key is a bit annoying. Honestly the only thing about the keyboard that isn’t great is that it’s a bit on the noisy side as its very clackity when you type. I know a lot of people don’t like the dimpled ASUS touchpads but honestly I don’t think it’s that bad and it has tons of multi-functions that really make it a joy to use. The single button touchpad button isn’t as firm as on the UL80VT so its a bit easier to press for those who don’t just use tapping. The screen is also in my opinion much better then the UL80VT in regards to contrast which I felt was subpar on the the larger model. Viewing angles still aren’t great but they aren’t on most laptops these days. The hard drive is a bit noisy but it’s not really that noticeable.

      I know a lot will be made of battery life on these UL models and it should be pointed out that this comes with the 10 hour battery, not the 12 hour one Amazon lists. Even still its a 63whr, 4400mah 8 cell battery that I have easily been able to get 7 hours of wifi web surfing and there still being life left (sorry, I haven’t had it long enough to do a full battery test yet). So while it would have been nice to get the larger 84whr battery I don’t think I will have had too many instances where I will even need it. Also just to correct another incorrect part of the Amazon listing, the UL30VT weighs 3.92lbs according to my precision scale with the battery installed. Still plenty light for me but I don’t know how they got 3.7lbs that is listed here. The UL80VT also has the wrong weight listed in it’s listing as it weighed 4.8lbs when I weighed that back in October.

      Overall I am very happy I waited for the UL30VT, the idea of creating an overclocked low voltage system is a genius concept that ASUS has executed very well here. The end result gives the user performance equivalent to a regular full voltage Core 2 Duo while still providing great battery life. There is truly nothing else on the market like the VT series laptops and for $799 you get a lot. Sure the larger battery or longer warranty of the A series UL models (this is an X model) would be nice but it would then cost more and lets be honest, it still has better battery life then most systems on the market and almost all consumer laptops only come with a one year warranty to begin with! Given the price I can’t recommend this system enough, sure there are a few things that could be improved but for me it’s exactly what I needed in a laptop at hundreds less then I was originally expecting to pay.

      UL30Vt-X1 Is The BEST 13″ Notebook On Planet Earth, February 28, 2010
      By 
      Wavey Davey (Southern CA, USA) –

      Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
      This review is from: ASUS UL30Vt-X1 Thin and Light 13.3-Inch Black Laptop (11 Hours of Battery Life) (Personal Computers)

      I’ve been searching for the perfect, best, finest, fastest, coolest small notebook for almost 5 months, believe it or not, and here it is the Asus UL30Vt-X1. It could have reached out and bit me, it was so close at hand, so easy to find, but you almost never look right under your nose do you? Well, so much for finding it…let’s tell the nice Amazon.com readers what it does, and how well it does it, and a whole slew of TIPS and TRICKS this user knows in and out!

      I’ve put together some sections where I am going to describe settings and specific control panel functions that work optimally for my uses, and I tell you what to expect when using them…this is a User’s Review as much as it is a Review for pre-sales questions and general interest. Hope you like it!

      **13.3″ 1366 x 768 pixels HD LED Backlit LCD Display-nVidia G210-M 512MB Video+ Intel GMA-4500 Integrated Graphics, SWITCHABLE GRAPHICS ENGINES! RealTek HD Audio! nVidia HD HDMI Audio!

      It’s not the brightest display(200 Nits by measurement) nor the most defined by contrast, unless you get into the nVidia CP and adjust things…so go to nVidia Control Panel (right click, on the desktop), Adjust Video Color Settings, check “Dynamic Contrast Enhancement”, and “Color Enhancement”, then hit ‘Apply’ and BAM! Your LCD will become very, very nice, with deep blacks, browns and blues, while the bright colors themselves will ‘Jump Out At You’–you’ll think you are looking at a much more expensive computer’s display. That’s something that anybody can do to enhance the graphic power of the nVidia G210-M 512MB discrete video card output, and it does make a HUGE difference…try it, you’ll like it!

      The native HD display is capable of rendering virtually any type of content with either of the video settings, as the GMA-4500 Intel Graphics (integrated video, that uses up to 4095MB of system RAM if the computer has 8GB RAM…with 4GB of RAM the video uses up to 1795MB RAM) are capable with HD content. It’s just the nVidia card, however, that you want to use (whenever possible, ie not on battery) that fetches up 30-40FPS+ with Call of Duty: World at War for example! Yes, this notebook is a gamer’s delight, to a point…don’t expect 70+FPS in deep battle scenes with heavy, hard detail settings, but it is adequate for playing virtually any of the current crop of 1st-person shooter games…Crysis, literally any game available right now. It’s that good!

      When on AC Power, PowerGear4 Hybrid set on High Performance and Turbo Boost, fire up any game you want and the UL30Vt-X1 springs to life, loads the game rapidly, enter your control panel Option settings and you’re off and running, full screen if you want…this is a fantastic nVidia graphics engine, and it will do the job. I also have had xlnt results playing HD video/audio content.

      Do you like Hulu content, the online TV that displays programs/movies in HD? This is one notebook that will not disappoint Hulu fans, so let’s get cranking! Open up “The Dresden Files”, for example, the Canadian Sci-Fi/Suspense Thriller from 2004-2007 that Hulu has all the archives of, choose Full-Screen Mode in the controls on screen, and WHAM! You’re watching full HD video at 1366 x 768, and the UL30Vt-X1 will come through stutter-free, without any problems at all. The CULV CPU, the 1066mhz DDR3 RAM, and either of the graphics engines will do the job. You can count on this computer 100% with any type of video content, either online, HD movies from DVD’s, or even BluRay discs can be played (with a player, of course) at full screen resolution. This video Rocks!

      It helps if you have the latest, and greatest Flash Player Beta 10.1.55.xx installed, but that’s optional as is a browser other than IExplorer (I’ve been using Google Chrome). The sound is xlnt also, coming from Altec Lansing speakers which are positioned in the chassis front edge, left and right, for true SRS Surround Sound action via the RealTek HD Sound Manager. You can access the manager’s controls by clicking on the System Tray’s hidden icons, RealTek HD Sound Manager, double-click on it and choose from 30-or more different sound effects! Here’s a couple I found to be optimal:

      RealTek HD Sound Manager: Set it to Stereo for headphones, then check “Headphone Virtualization” if you use headphones like I do 90% of the time. In Sound Effects, click on “Rock” which will enhance the sound just enough to put a slight EDGE on the drums, cymbals, bass is enhanced, and mids are subdued with voices accentuated perfectly. Click on “Living Room” for the Environment which stops any acoustic ‘echo-effect’ which many of the other choices will do. Then go to the last panel there, Default Format, and choose the Hz: I found that 24-bit 96,000Hz are perfect for this system, which is set OEM @ 24-bit 48,000Hz, just not enough Hz for my ears! TRY THOSE OUT! You will thank me a bunch, those are great…

      Another ASUS hit: Thin and Light without sacrifice, December 7, 2009
      By 
      Daniel S. Kim “technology enthusiast” (Anaheim, CA USA) –
      (REAL NAME)
        

      This review is from: ASUS UL30Vt-X1 Thin and Light 13.3-Inch Black Laptop (11 Hours of Battery Life) (Personal Computers)

      Over the past 3 years I’ve owned a few ASUS laptops, and have not been disappointed by a single one thus far. Not only are their products great for the price, but ASUS has always given me top of the line customer service which definitely matters with laptops compared to a desktop PC which are somewhat easier to self-service.

      The UL30VT in my opinion is the perfect all around package for any type of user. Whether you may be a business user or a multimedia-phile, all the bases are covered with the UL30VT while offering advanced graphics power in a thin and light package that is easy to haul around.

      KEYBOARD 10/10

      I instantly fell in love with the keyboard on this unit. Being a 13.3 inch laptop with a widescreen display, the keyboard is nice and spacious, giving just the right amount of tactile feedback for my personal preferences. The keys are a bit louder than I would like them to be, but the overall experience of typing on this unit is fantastic. The chiclet keys, spacious layout, and overall comfort with the large and not-too-hot palm rest make it an absolute hit. Only thing that this unit would need is backlit keys to make it better.

      SCREEN 6/10

      With the release of LED backlight technology in LCD screens, you would think that the display on most of these units would pop out at you, but not so in this case. Over a few hours the screen doesn’t necessarily burden your eyes with extra strain, but the viewing angles from top to bottom are horrid at best. Left to right angles are more forgiving, offering an approximate viewing angle of about 160 degrees. Quality of high motion video on the screen is up to par, but overall the contrast, color saturation, and missed marks on blacks make it quite uninviting at times.

      GRAPHICS POWER 8/10

      For such a sleek and compact unit at the listing price at Amazon for 799 US, you can’t really beat it. With Turbo33 Mode on and utilizing the G210M, i have been able to play single and multi player Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare without a hitch at its native resolution. Granted i did do some extra modifications in the BIOS of the laptop (albeit not much), it definitely exceeded my expectations for what i paid. Flash and Silverlight video are almost flawless with some extremely minor hiccups, but overall the streaming and native multimedia experience on this laptop is superb.

      Hooking the laptop HDMI to a 1080p 50″ LCD is impressive nonetheless, and watching any sort of content makes it a joy to have. As usual, Fn functions work flawlessly on this laptop as well making it a great Home Theater option for those people without a dedicated pc/nettop with their setup.

      BATTERY LIFE AND HEAT DISPERSEMENT 7/10

      So far utilizing integrated graphics and the battery saving profile of the packaged ASUS software, I’ve been able to squeeze out about 8 hours max with constant media streaming and wifi surfing. To be honest, this was a little higher than I expected with the lower included 4400mah battery and the advertised 12 hour longevity. In real world usage, I would say that its safe to assume you’ll get around 7 – 8 hours with normal usage. Gaming on another hand is a battery drainer as usual, leaving me topped out at 3 hours playing Call of Duty over wifi. I have not gotten a chance to try DVD or Bluray drainage, but I would suspect it would last you around 4 – 5 hours max.

      Of course like any CULV, this unit doesn’t require the use of loud fans, as well as not being as hot as other Core 2′s and Quads. Heat on the palmrest never even bothered me as well as having the laptop on my lap for casual surfing, but with the discrete nvidia graphics, things tend to get a little worse, but plenty bearable.

      OVERALL 8/10

      I don’t use any kind of system with my ratings, its just what my personal connotations of each aspect of the device give me. I would highly recommend this laptop to anybody, whether you be a highly mobile road warrior, or a lecture bearing college student. With the spacious 500GB laptop, it should serve any purpose well and then some. Now granted the HDD is partitioned into two sections: 116 for the Operating system, and 334 for data, so this is something to be aware of if you plan on loading a lot of hard disk hogging software.

      In my opinion, this unit should have an option with the higher capacity battery. I would personally consider this a hit device and eliminate the other UL30 models as having switchable graphics is definitely a must for the small price difference. If you’re arguing between the new VT model and other UL30 series models, the small price jump is definitely worth it even if you don’t plan on gaming or graphics developing. Having the extra oomph just in case never hurts, as I’m sure some multimedia that you may want to watch in the future will definitely benefit…

      Very innovative notebook, January 9, 2010

      This review is from: ASUS UL30Vt-A1 Thin and Light 13.3-Inch Silver Laptop (12 Hours of Battery Life) (Personal Computers)

      I got to use this laptop for a few days and it’s brought me dangerously close to buying one for myself. If you are looking for a thin-and-light notebook with great battery life and a little gaming life under the hood this is (in my opinion) the best choice on the market today. What sets this notebook apart is two things:

      1. At the push of a button you can switch from a low power Intel 4500HD graphics processor to a higher power NVidia G210M with 512MB DDR3 RAM (this defaults on when plugged in and defaults off when unplugged).
      2. At the push of a button you can enable the “Turbo 33″ mode which uses a mix of hardware (such as overclocking the cpu) and software to boost performance by up to 33%. I ran some basic benchmarks and it seemed to work pretty well.

      CPU – The 1.3GHz Intel SU7300 Core 2 Duo Processor 3MB Cache 800MHz FSB is a great fit. Some of the thin-and-lights in this class ship with either a Core Solo (i.e. single core) or Celeron CPU. I tend to avoid both because the single core CPUs tend to choke on all the Internet Security software you need these days and the Celerons come with cut-down cache and now power saving modes.

      RAM – The included 4GB of DDR3 is just the right amount to really start taking advantage of a 64 bit O.S. I also like that Asus used DDR3 which uses less power than DDR2.

      HDD – It comes with a 500GB hard disk drive which is more than most users need today. The 5400RPM speed is slower than the 7200RPM drive you will find on some models but I prefer the reliability and power savings that come with a 5400RPM drive.

      DISPLAY – The 13.3 inch widescreen is glossy and reasonably bright. Outdoor use will suffer from some glare but the backlit screen helps. I found the vertical viewing angles are a little tight but it wasn’t a big deal.

      GRAPHICS – As mentioned above it switches between a low power Intel 4500HD graphics chip on the motherboard (fine for most non-gaming tasks) and a more power hungry NVidia G210M that will actually let you do a some 3D gaming (though newer games will still run best at reduced settings). This simple and clever innovation really sets Asus apart. Oh and either chipset can do 1080P HD video.

      Battery – It’s rare to get a battery this good in a notebook this thin: 8 cell 5600mAh. I couldn’t get the claimed 12 hours of battery life but I got very close (doing a normal mix of MS Office tasks and web browsing I got just shy of 11 hours). Even doing very compute intensive tasks like gaming or playing back video I went over 6 hours. Most notebooks can’t run Word that long.

      Touchpad – At first I hated the touchpad but as I got used to it I really liked it. It two-finger scrolling and three-finger right click which may trip you up at first but after a few days you won’t want to go back.

      It comes with most of the usual stuff: HDMI port (for an external monitor or compatible TV), Ethernet port, wireless b/g/n, 3 USB ports, headphone jack, microphone jack, and a vga (for an external monitor). It does lack any kind of optical drive, so no playing CDs or DVDs without an external drive. For this you would need the ASUS UL80Vt-A1 14-Inch Thin and Light Black Laptop. It’s a “thin-and-light” which as you would guess means it is thin (1″) and light (3.75lbs). I also found it to be very quiet. It comes with a facial recognition feature that allows you to login without a password but this was disabled by our IT department so I wasn’t able to try it out.

      I see a lot of notebooks and I’ve generally been impressed with the build quality of Asus notebooks. The build on this model looks great and it’s helped by the sleek and simple design: no fancy little bits that fall off in a year. In my opinion this is the thin-and-light to have if you need great battery life but don’t want to give up all the fun. If you don’t do any 3D gaming you don’t need the Nvidia chipset and you probably should save a little money on a notebook without it such as the nearly identical ASUS UL30A-A2 Thin and Light 13-3-Inch Silver Laptop. Otherwise this is a great choice for a student or business traveler who likes to do a little gaming.

      This review is from: ASUS UL30Vt-A1 Thin and Light 13.3-Inch Silver Laptop (12 Hours of Battery Life) (Personal Computers)

      I am told I over analyze purchases and must say I have been watching laptops for a couple of years. My goals were lightweight and portable but not so small I could not read the screen and LONG battery time. After all it is a portable! I tried a 15.6 but what a moose! A 14″ seemed just right but the chassis was bigger and heavier. I was afraid of a 13.3 but then it dawned on me that is was the same resolution as the 14 and only .7″ smaller, not a full inch. I went from store to store lining a 14′s up next to a 13.3′s and I really could not tell the difference! Listen my fellow middle agers,I have exceptionally poor eyesight so if it worked for me it will for you! (no offense to my eye Surgeon, Dr. Barry Lee, he did a great job with what I gave him to work with!).

      I have a powerful desktop so I did not need a desktop replacement class Laptop. I also can’t stand a slow poke so a netbook was out and so was a celeron. The T6600 CPUS are the sweet spot for price and value and they are plenty snappy but they are power hungry (compared to the SU’s). The SU7300 was just the ticket. Yes, I got the TURBO 33 VT version but I don’t think that matters at all. I wanted it for bragging rights only. Same goes for the separate GPU, I want to hedge my bets in case I do some vector art editing. I am NOT a gamer.

      I wrestled with the lack of a DVD drive but hey you can download ANYTHING, DVD drives are really on the way out, don’t sweat it!It’s worth the size and weight savings. The keyboard is REALLY GREAT, I am not a touch typist and the keys have nice spacing and definition. (I would have paid BIG money for a back lit keyboard but that just narrows the field TOO MUCH. Touchpad is fine also but I live with my Logitech NANO V450 mouse anyway.

      The battery life is the real deal and that sold me on this unit. I am coming up on 4 hrs with wifi, bright screen, remote desktop, iTunes, 2 browsers and only down 25% on the battery. Seriously! I charge it and leave without the power cord. I really wanted the silver cover after seeing a black one in person it really showed finger prints. Silver is GREAT!

      Another thing I like about the VT version is a little bit faster DRAM and Bus, I don’t believe anyone could tell a difference but it makes me feel like I have the latest and greatest and am hedging my bets regarding being outdated sooner then later. If you need to save a few dollars, don’t worry about it!

      There are no compromises here and if you don’t know ASUS, they have been around FOREVER and have been an OEM supplier since, like FOREVER! Don’t get hung up on the big name companies, it means nothing! The ONLY complaint is the lack of documentation. I got NOTHING to help me figure out the VT features like discrete graphics switching or the Turbo boost (That’s the over clocking feature. It steps the CPU up 33% This is VERY unnecessary, I can not come close to pushing this thing in standard mode.) I suspect most will never adjust these features anyway but HEY ASUS, are you listening? Send me a manual, pdf is fine! If its on here somewhere then you made it too hard to find! :)

      Light, Powerful, Cost Effective 13.3″, a “Must Have”, February 6, 2010
      By

      This review is from: ASUS UL30Vt-A1 Thin and Light 13.3-Inch Silver Laptop (12 Hours of Battery Life) (Personal Computers)

      I have been following the 13.3″ laptop market for the past year waiting for someone to offer one with a powerful video card at a fairly low price. ASUS has done it with the UL30Vt! This is the second ASUS we have in our household and it definitely does not disappoint — the build quality is as good or better than the other name brand laptops we have in our stable and I traded a 14.1″ HP for this. I do not regret it.

      Pros:

      – Light — I can carry it one handed anywhere I go and I’m not worried about dropping it.
      It is like carrying a spiral notebook!
      – Great video card — The laptop automatically switches between an intel video chipset
      (low power demand) and a powerful NVIDIA card when as you plug and unplug the laptop
      into the powercord.
      – Great screen — the HD screen is awesome and looks better than others provided by other
      well known brands.
      – DDR3 Ram — blazing fast and low power usage.
      – Intel Power efficient processor — while the intel chip is rated below 2.0 Mz, it runs
      faster than my 2.6Mz chip on my work laptop that also has DDR3 memory. Don’t know how,
      but it gets better “Experience Ratings”. Also, you can overclock the chip using ASUS
      software, but I haven’t needed to.
      – Cool — the machine runs cool. I have never had it become uncomfortably warm.
      – Battery life — battery lasts a long time. Have put in a 7200 RPM HDD to replace the one
      provided by ASUS… and the battery lasts 10 hours or more.
      – Looks — holy smokes, looks cooler than my daughter’s school MacBook Pro. I cannot
      keep her off my machine.
      – Keyboard — I was a bit leery of the ‘chicklet’ keyboard as I learned to type on a a
      “Selectric”. However, the keyboard supports my heavy typing style and hasn’t slowed me down.

      Cons:
      – A bit more ‘bloatware’ than I expected, but most was ASUS software to try to make the
      machine more ‘user friendly’ Had fun figuring out what to turn off…

      Overall?
      – A great buy and I’m glad I waited. There are at least two other named brand laptops that offer a similar laptop
      (switching video cards to save power) but they run at least twice this price or more. ASUS created a winner here…
      … and I’m the ultimate skeptic of computer hardware.

      I loved it! Especialy keybord, it is so comfortable. I thought it will be every small in comparation to my previous HP with 15.4 screen, but it is not.
      All the features are just like in tbe description, and the quality of the product itself is great!

      I love everything about the computer itself. The battery lasts forever and everything operates very quickly and smoothly. The only negative would be that one of the reasons I bought the product was for the free year of accidental warranty is a huge pain if you ever end up using it. Registering the product for the additional warranty is a joke and don’t even try calling customer service. I spoke to two different individuals the first of which yelled and then hung up on me and the second just didn’t know what she was talking about. You are better off just trying to figure out any problems you have yourself, which would be easier if the product support websites were user friendly or not constantly down. So all in all great computer just don’t ever have any technical problems included under warranty and you will be set!
