dave unknown: hey dude. Is this the IPS display model?
I have checked with a few suppliers and they say that the specification does state it is a 1080P display but it is not a IPS.
Can you check for me on the box there should be a white label that states the display. It should say "13.3 FHD SLIM WV / USB 3"
aumkarpraja: So..if the SSD is changed then do you have to put Windows back on or is there a built in recovery partition somewhere?
T4hKiserSose: I have the UX32VD which came with 6GB of ram and a 500GB HD ...so my question to you is are all 32VD versions upgradable?? even with it having this amount of ram onboard?? is there a max with this motherboard ?? is the UX52VS upgradable even though some versions show 10gb ram...might upgrade to that :) Great Video!
Moby Inayet: HI Austin. Do we need a regular SSD or the thinner version?
Tomas Stavik: I'm getting a UX32A with 6GB ram with the i5 processor. I kind of want to upgrade the HDD to an SSD. But is it really not possible?
setlec: i'm interested to know if it's possible to upgrade the UX32A, mine comes with 4 GB ram, shared with the GPU up to 512MB. I hope to add a 8 GB ram and replace the SSD to a bigger such a 128 GB ssd from samsung 840. asus online support told me that it was ok for the Ram but was clueless about the SSD.
SOSSENHEIM: have it SATA 6GB/s ?
Dustin Tran: What? Are you positive?
cfriedman2000: Austin great video;need more info or link for the mushkin ram and I need to replace the battery any safety points on the speaker that looks to be attached; also any isues with the ssd or additional tips on preparing the upgrade
Shaan Bhambra: Do you know if the UX32A can be upgraded? I have 6GB RAM onboard, and I believe there is an open slot. I have an extra 2GB of RAM that I'd like to add.
Austin Nwachukwu: That is correct.
MrProPromo: someone told me you can't upgrade the ux31a. Is this true?
Freja Westerlund: Thx
Arthur Edridge: could you also look at updating the RAM while you're at it?
Jenan Art: can you put the link from where i can get those scroll drivers?
Daumier: How is the SSD connected? Will it actually run in full 500 mb/s?
Max M: Very helpful video. Thanks!
Is the 24GB (or 32GB?) SSD cache still uable after the Samsung SSD was installed? Any particular steps needed?
Cristian Alexander: I like that you paid attention to match the RAM to the Bus latency.
Austin Nwachukwu: Unfortunately, I have no idea. But...I actually just ordered a UX31A, so when it comes and take it apart for you and have a look.
Tim Dawg: Austin, great video. I have a UX31 (warranty expired) and need to replace the msata SSD because it's the crappy U100 that's stuttering and showing performance issues. I've looked into disassembling my UX31 which is very similar to the UX32 you show here. Do you think I would be able to put any msata SSD in my UX31? The port connector looks the same on it as any msata drive on NewEgg but I'm not sure how to secure it since none of retail drives are long with the screw hole at the end. Ideas?
Austin Nwachukwu: You sir are indeed correct. I actually had to reinstall it afterwards.
Travis Chan: I think your ram was not fully seated in place. It should be inserted a bit more and then pressed down so the side clips snap in. There is too much gold on the teeth showing in my opinion....
SoulElitex: why do u recommend a corsair vengeance when u used a mushkin
Dominus357: So I have a chance to bid and buy this exact same machine for like 100-200 euros. But the thing is, it was in the store on a stand and it fell like 2x times on the ground. It still works and when it's on the table, it's kinda crooked, one side is like a bit short, so if you type, it wobbles kinda. So they can't sell it as new anymore.
Do you think I should try and get it and hope for the best? What kind of damage could there be and how could I check for it? Much appreciated it. Like your vids.
Austin Nwachukwu: Haha, wow...good find! It's a full-sized HDMI port on the UX32VD.
Nathan Tuttle: Found one of these laying on the side of the road, all smashed up. Screen broke. But I think it is still alive. FREE LAPTOP :D.
Need to hook it to a screen is the HDMI micro or mini?
Ville Holopainen: Great for light games like Starcraft II, diablo 3. Heavier games like Guild Wars 2 and Borderlands 2 work too, but with lowered graphics (still enjoyable)
Ville Holopainen: There's no way it would work on the Zenbook. It works 25 fps on my gaming laptop with an i7 processor and GTX 660M, so I doubt it would even start with a GT 620M.
notanumber: Good video, lighting needs work. :)
mrmalonson: Great vid Austin, what about cloning the original drive to the SSD? What would you recommend?
Vic Mun: does it have to take Samsung ssd or can it take any 2.5 inch 5400 sata hard drive?
dboy white: Is it good with gaming
blade: My UX32A originally had a quick start up ssd (24G) and an ordinary Hard disk (500G). Both were preloaded by Asus.
Since I was replacing the 500G hard disk, it was necessary to clone all the files (hidden and viewable) from the 500G disk onto the new SSD (250G). I did this with Macrium Reflect (free trial 1 month) which allows you to clone from larger Hard disk to smaller SSD.
Ensure your SSD is the right size ie. 7 mm (eg. Samsung and Crucial). Then install according to Austin's video
Emmanuel Schaub: how does one go about cloning? Were the steps in this video the same for the UX32A? Thank you.
Emmanuel Schaub: Great vid. I just got the UX32A and am wondering about whether the same steps apply to the SSD upgrade for this machine. Any 7mm SSD would do?
RAMEEZ RAJA: UX32A doesnot have an option of upgrade... bcoz all the parts are glued in together... so it wont be possible for you to remove and reinsert with a new one...:)
Maxi Mellon: Austin? How can I change the fan on zenbook and where can find one?
Maxi Mellon: Thanks you Austin! You are the best!
Austin Nwachukwu: Take the back plate off and use compressed air to blow off all the dust.
Maxi Mellon: Austin, can you tell as how to clean the fan on zenbook? Thank you!
blade: Nice vid. I followed it and installed on UX32A. Works like a charm now. Just remember to clone the 500G HDD onto the new SSD before installation because some of the start up files were split between the original 24G startup SSD and 500G HDD.
AkimboBlitz: usb drive
Austin Nwachukwu: Haha, yeah I don't know why.
Karim Elmankabady: U pointed your middle finger at the ram package 3 times calm down
Kevin Jeong: So after the upgrade, how does one install Windows 7 to it?
pr0iphone: I'm not english so I didn't get something : I know you have the UX32VD but if I buy a UX32A , I won't be able to put an ssd myself ? why ?
I look for your answer
Alexander Ekstrand: Does this work on ASUS Zenbook UX32VD-R3001V?
Alex Cortes: Hey, nice video :)
Are these devices upgradable?
Austin Nwachukwu: Initially, a slight problem....but honestly, you won't really notice it unless you want to.
