As a preamble to this test
Even if there are not really bad choices in laptops anymore, it is important to know that some models are more intended for multimedia, and others more for games.Your computer will not be limited to technical specifications, so we have built a test plan according to the use you will make of it.We’ve put this ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T through some tests based on how you’re going to use it.
In short, depending on your needs you will see if this model suits you.
ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T the right choice for surfing the internet?
What you expect from a mobile phone is that it allows you to surf the Web, and possibly allow you to write e-mails, do calculations in a spreadsheet or word processor. An inexpensive computer such as ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T may seem to be the solution. The material used by Asus are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. In other words, don’t expect to keep it for more than 3 years.
This model is a mid-range model with a screen size of 15 inches. Easy to take along from time to time. With a processor Core i7-10870H, Asus offers an already outdated technology. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. So certainly, with this laptop you have enough resources for internet surfing and word processing, but you may have to change it in less than 5 years. With 16 Gb of RAM, it ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237Tis a good product. Even if it has free slots in which you can add memory strips, it’s more than enough to get you started.
The 500 Gb make this laptop a mid-range laptop in terms of available space. Almost the same as its competitors and what is currently done on the market, you will have room to store. Asus comes with this ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T a laptop that you’ll keep for a few years before it becomes obsolete.
Finally, the autonomy of 4 hours is one of the worst on the market. Batteries store little energy, and the computer consumes a lot of energy when it is used. In other words, you will have to keep this ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T most of the time connected to the power cable.
ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T the right choice for watching movies ?
Asus has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T; more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. In short, this is a an unremarkable computer that is not comfortable with strictly multimedia use.
Asus has chosen a medium size screen to meet everyone’s needs. With its 15 inches and resolution of 1920×1080, it can be suitable for a lot of uses including watching films. And in film display mode, you’ll have excellent visual quality with bright, realistic images. In conclusion, it is a well-balanced product that allows the films to be viewed correctly; and with a contained weight of 2.3 kg, it is easily transportable.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
Obsolescence has already striken this laptop, equipped with a processor Core i7-10870H that is several years old now. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
As far as applications are concerned, did Asus not install any. There’s only the operating system. As a standard, you have some Windows 10 on which it will be possible to add all the software you need. Clearly, to watch movies, nothing more.
Equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphic card, and with 16 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Speaking of connectivity, this laptop provides 4 ports.It’s better than the competition. Speakers, a mouse (wired), an external hard drive and an output to a pocket projector when on business trip or when you travel.
In short, for those who wish to replace their TV set with this laptop, it ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T seems inappropriate. With only a little autonomy, you don’t have a lot of time. Before the end of some movies in long version, you will have to put the power cable back on, otherwise this laptop will turn itself off. Therefore, it is best to use this computer constantly plugged into an outlet, without worrying about battery life.
The ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
It ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. It doesn’t seem to have been a priority when they designed this model Asus. Difficult to store in a suitcase, not very suitable for transport, tests have shown that this laptop will be more in its element for very exceptional trips.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
It is one of the heaviest laptops in its class, with 2.3 Kg. It’s unpleasant to carry. It’s bulky, and when you’re on the go you’ll only dream of having one of these ultra slim models of the competition. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. The explanation mainly comes down to the size of the screen: 15inches.
The backlit keypad of this ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T is simple and convenient for when you’re in a taxi or a dimly lit subway. After spending some time typing on it, we can say it is of good quality.
Finally, the absence of a glossy slab does not compromise image quality. This laptop displays deep and vivid colors.
This laptop is very comfortable to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
The processor Core i7-10870H is inferior to other competitive products.
Also, the batteries hold the charge for a shorter time; probably the worst results in this range. This figure is an estimate and consider instead that you will have 70% of this autonomy.
With 4 hours, this model is unfortunately one of the weakest currently offered on laptops.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 500 Gb. SSDs are much faster and lighter, and have no moving parts. With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
Knowing that you’ll have to carry this laptop by plane, train, or other means, it’s handy. The ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T is a fair alternative with iis 15 inches.
At the connector level, this model provides 4 inputs. That makes it one of the best equipped models on the market.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
Following our tests, it appeared to us that it is not ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T really made for travelling.
The ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T- the right model for audio or video editing ?

Even for an amateur level, editing and creating music requires processor speed and sufficient RAM. Of course, it is not at the level of what is done for professionals, but it responds well anyway.
The software suite installed by default on this model provides the bare minimum to start working. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Core i7-10870H. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 500 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. As a reminder, an audio and video editing use, involves a large capacity hard disk drive for storage, and speed of execution with an SSD. Here with 500 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
The autonomy of this ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237T is of 4 hours in normal use; Unfortunately, it remains low for an audio-video use which needs a lot of computing power. With most competitors on the market, this figure is better.
On the connection side, the ROG Strix G15 G512LV-HN237Ti s equipped with USB 3 technology. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. This standard allows transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbit per second, about ten times faster than USB 2.0.
It will also do very well for word processing or web browsing when you need it. In short, an interesting choice in this price range.
