Enhanced contrast, sharpness and color brightness are the main benefits you will get from this ZenBook UX434. Also note that potentially this screen will be more stressful to the eyes, after 2-3 hours of use in a row.
On the sound side, it ZenBook UX434 has good components: board and integrated speakers. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
The processor installed on this model is a Core i5-10210U sufficient one for audio and video. With this, you are sure to have a scalable product (if needed), and that will fit perfectly with your peripherals (speakers, video projectors, etc…). You won’t have to worry about launching your audio and video applications.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel UHD Graphics 620, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
