Asus TUF FX705DT-AU042T Review

Asus TUF FX705DT-AU042T is one of the new models of the gaming range produced by Asus. It is essentially a more sophisticated and upgraded version of the FX505Dy. It has an excellent design and has recorded amazing performance.

Build and design

Asus TUF FX705DT-AU042T has an amazing design it is available in Stealth Black plastic design or a Gold steel metal body, with the top cover bearing the “Radiating X” design. Its outstanding design holds much durability and has been tested and certified to MIL-STD810G standards.

Keyboard and TouchPad

Asus TUF FX705DT has a beautifully crafted and comfortable keyboard. As a matter of fact, the keys travel a distance of about 1.8 Millimetres when a force of about 62 grams strikes it. Its integrated numpad makes it stand out. Interestingly, it also comes with an RGB Backlit keyboard whose colors can be changed flexibly. The precision of the touchpad amazes me because it enables the multi-finger taps and swipes for Windows 10 users.


Like its other counterparts, the Asus TUF FX705DT has all its port on the left side of its body. The right side holds the gamers’ mouse alongside a Kensington security cable. That’s not all; a LAN port, round Pin-power port, Full-size HDMI port, USB-A 2.0 port, a 3.5mm audio jack for headsets  and two USB-A 3.1 ports
