    Didn't notice any other threads about this model, so here's a first one.

    Got mine a week ago.
    So far - so good. No issues yet.

    Anyone else picked it up yet? :)

    Does anyone know if the issues that plagued the G53SW have been solved with the G53SX? For example, the power button not working, the lid and screen separating a bit, the keyboard flex, the power pin issue, etc. If so, I'd probably take the less powerful graphics card in the G53SX just to have peace of mind.

    Haven't overclocked it, neither have I done any benchmarks yet.
    One day if I'm really bored I might just do some.

    Don't have any 3D tech, as I have FHD screen. The 3D effect is only for the 1366x768 resolution.

    No issues with the laptop. Power button works fine. Keyboard is solid. No idea what the power-pin issue could be - but for a month that I've had it, there have been zero problems.

    560M GTX runs games better than my old laptop with 460M GTX, at least thus far. Maybe it's because of the drivers, I don't know.

    I'm using a G51VX with a Core 2 Duo @ 2.53 ghz and a GTX 260m. I saw the G53SX on Newegg at a good price, but I wanted to know if an aftermarket blu ray drive upgrade is possible on it. Any possibility of finding this out?

    Just click on details or specifications and look for differences in ram, hdd and/or optical drive, sometimes even the screen resolution. Those are the most prominent and easiest to tell apart.
