Value for money
I bought this laptop after a bit of research. It was the best value for money across the board. I will be using the laptop for study and light gaming as well when I travel. I am enjoying the speed and the look of the laptop, it fits my needs.
Purchased in December 2020 for $1,799.00.
Laptop was recommended to us (by a gaming expert) as a great gaming laptop for our children. Recommendation is based on price and features. We love the look, size of the 144HZ screen, powerful RTX2060 GPU and Ryzen 7 CPU.

Slick - no noise - yet powerful
Bought this in September 2020. So far so good. Smooth keyboard. Haven't observed noise. First time moved from intel to Ryzen 7 on RTX 2060. Hoping for the video editing, app development purpose.

Good gaming laptop as an entry level
I bought it today and just finished all the settings. Keyboard typing is smooth and good. Display and sound are working perfectly. Product weight is light enoigh to bring in backpack. It just makes some noise even if you do not use any heavy program.

Decent for the cost
Aesthetically it's off to a good start although this is subjective. The keyboard is tactile in its rebound which can take a little getting used to, but the RGB backlighting definitely generates ambience. The screen brightness isn't great and personally I found my eyes getting a bit dry over an hour of use despite the antiglare IPS. I got this instead of the FA506II but this is more of an impulse decision because of the RTX 2060 but I'm yet to see a major difference that justifies every dollar of the $400 difference, although I'm not doubting it...just yet. The trackpad can be a little sticky, but then, I come from MacBook origins and gaming would be more concerned with a mouse setup than the trackpad. Finally, with numerous modern titles now exceeding 100GB in storage requirement with updates, I'm not entirely confident how long it can last before external storage will become necessary. On a full charge I managed between 3-4hrs of admin (non-gaming) on average setting, this added with the weight (>2kg) does not make it ideal as a portable work solution.
Great value for money
$2099 AUD was a pretty good price for a Ryzen R7/RTX 2060/16gb, especially with all you get in this laptop.
I was looking for something that would be able to handle video editing as well as a decent gaming laptop and this ticks both boxes with ease - especially on a budget.
Also wanted something with a little more longevity and with the option to upgrade various components this was an easy choice.
Its durable design is also a plus and provides peace on mind knowing it can handle being accidentally dropped or mishandled.
Overall very happy and would definitely recommend

Good Low to lower -Mid level gaming laptop of late 2020
Purchased the Ryzen R9/RTX 2060/16gb model. I wanted to make sure it was somewhat future proofed for the next two years considering the new nvidia 3000 GPU series is coming out soon.
For $2300 AUD it was an alright purchase as the next step up in gaming laptop was going to be close to 3k and the lower models at not so much of a lower price were a bit dated.
Unit is so far so good. I hope it runs high demand games like Cyber Punk decently when it comes out.
I've looked at how the rams could be upgraded and it seems pretty simple as opposed to other models of different brands.
Its pretty nice having a portable gaming unit to be taken anywhere i go.

Haven't received unit yet
Haven't received my machine yet because of delays caused by COVID-19, but the specs on this machine are great for the price point - happy to provide an update once I unbox.

Does the trick.
I have been forced to write a review to claim my $100 voucher so although i have only just turned it on and waiting for the miryad of updated to complete i can confidently say that this does turn on and function as a laptop.

Great budget laptop for the part time gamer
Good value for money - fan can be loud but if you are not hard gaming you can amend settings to lower it somewhat. For someone who is not serious gaming, I am very happy with this so far!

good option for budget gaming
Good value for the money. The Ryzen 7 CPU and RTX 2060 graphic card are amazing at this price point compare to others. The design is decent even though could have been better.

Great budget laptop
Average screen and cheap plastic construction don't hold back the very impressive CPU and graphics card within. The keyboard is quite good and the LED lighting is subtle and not too over the top. A larger battery wouldn't have hurt, but the additional space for drives is impressive.
