3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK. 7 Aug 2013
Out of the box the laptop was practically unusable. It was so slow that even scrolling with the touchpad was shuddery and having more than about 4 tabs in google chrome would slow the laptop to a near halt and processes would stop responding (sometimes system processes which would require me to restart - once I was unable to do this while updating the BIOS and had to wait 6 hours for the battery to deplete). The bloatware didn't help of course (Samsung even took the liberty of adding an extra user account for some survey thing) but even after removing this the laptop was still very slow. However, I recently thought to change the power settings and after this the laptop is adequately fast for my purposes, though at considerable cost to the battery life.
One thing that hasn't been solved by this is the touchpad, as the driver for this is an unmitigated disaster. Now any problems with it aren't masked by the shudderiness and unresponsiveness due to the slowness of the laptop, it is clear that it is really badly written. If you scroll (using 2 fingers on the touchpad) then stop, it takes a short while for the page to stop scrolling. This is fine; it gives a smoother feeling to it. However, if you let go during the time it takes to do this (as you would do naturally), it will just carry on scrolling past where you wanted to go (this happens on the windows start page, for example, so is not dependent on any program you may be using) You would have to constantly remind yourself when scrolling to leave your finger on the touchpad for a short while before letting go. For me, this would be such a pain that I prefer to just use the scroll bars as I did on my old laptop without this feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good laptop 12 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
Very quiet, excellent battery life, more than enough power to do normal day to day computer work without breaking sweat, no idea how it performs as a gaming machine as that's not what I bought it for.
Nice responsive keyboard, amazingly loud speakers!
Anti glare screen is fine for what I do, in fact Ive had to turn the brightness down. Only caveat, and its nothing to do with the laptop is the OS, Windows 8 is NOT my cup of tea!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money On SAMSUNG! 3 Sep 2013
By S. Miah TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I urge those looking to buy a new laptop, please do NOT buy SAMSUNG laptops! I have had 3 laptops from SAMSUNG and they have been terrible!

The laptop has good hardware specifications but don't be fooled! SAMSUNG are NOT what they use to be! Their new laptops models for 2012/2013 are terrible. SAMSUNG where great with support back 3 years ago and now they have become nothing but worse like foreign call centres. The support for drivers is outdated and the Windows 8 compatibility is pure rubbish. Half the SAMSUNG own applications don't function correctly with Windows 8. Even on some series especially 3 & 5 the Wi-Fi cards have poor signal (you get better signal if being in same room as router), also buggy Windows 8 drivers for the Wi-Fi hardware. To eliminate the problems I have tried 4 different routers along with neighbour router and yet issue with Wi-Fi is still there.

Contacting support is like talking to a brick wall. Their so called technicians are nothing but unqualified lunatics given a job. They should NOT be given a job and should be locked away from making contact with humans. Issue with two of my laptops use AMD graphic and they need latest drivers to be able to work correctly with certain video editing applications. I can NOT use the AMD drivers from AMD website as there is a vendor lock that AMD put due to drivers might cause incompatibility issues which is a fair point. Two SAMSUNG staff I spoke to just told me to download drivers from AMD website (shows how much they know). Explained the issues they couldn't help!

One of the SAMSUNG laptop I have had issues with regards to battery, SAMSUNG replaced this no problem here.

4.0 out of 5 stars no computer nurd 15 Aug 2013
By Chick
Verified Purchase
If I understood computers more I would have given this P.C. 5 stars because it is a very good piece of equipment, my problem is that it is so technical that I get lost in it, i.e. The key board has several different languishes that it is not always a "qwerty" keyboard, but lucky enough, I purchased it from a company, namely "Tronixcomputer" Via Amazon of course, that has a gentleman employed by them, with the patient of a saint, who helps me out with keyboard queries with no complaints. Having said all that, I will repeat myself, the P.C. is a superb piece of equipment and deserves five stars.
