Reviewers from Gizmodo have found the following[***]:
Asus' ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition delivers big-time performance that matches or outperforms what you'd get from a similar Intel/N Nvidia combo. Even with all that power, it still manages to maintain surprisingly decent battery life. Styling could be a bit much for some, big chin and power brick, no HDMI 2.1, Thunderbolt 4, or webcam.

Sentiment Score[*] 67%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Asus's ROG Strix lineup consists of powerful gaming laptops that rank just below the manufacturer's Strix SCAR flagship models. The protruding edge on the back houses some ports and promises better cooling performance, but at the same time, it restricts the opening angle of the hinges. In everyday use, the laptop responds almost instantaneously to inputs and programs are launched at lightning speed.

Pros[**]
  • Matte Full HD IPS display
  • Good WLAN transfer rates
  • NVMe SSD
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Only 12 months of warranty

Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Asus has been offering high-quality gaming laptops under the ROG Strix brand for a few years now. With the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, an ultra-modern octa-core processor runs under the hood and provides a lot of power. The port configuration of the Asus ROG G15 G513QY is generous and also sensibly distributed.

Pros[**]
  • Matte IPS display with good color-space coverage
  • NVMe SSD
  • Fast WiFi-6 AX module
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Only one year of AMD Radeon RX 6800M

techradar[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Asus ROG Strix G15 is as traditional a gaming laptop as you'll find today. It has an all-black colorway with red accents, both at the back of the laptop, and one that serves as a rubber foot for the laptop – which means you'll only see it when the laptop is upside down. There's also RGB lighting in the keyboard, and all of this lighting can be controlled through the the Asus Armoury Crate app. Like most laptop speakers, they lack bass, so you might want to use headphones if you're listening to music or playing games with a lot of explosions.

Pros[**]
  • Great gaming performance for a gaming laptop
  • Great trackpad
  • Comfortable keyboard
Cons[**]
  • Lack of bass
  • Mediocre battery life
