4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent laptop for the money 24 Jun 2011
By JW
This is a striking looking laptop that does not disappoint once you open and use.

I dont do gaming so can`t comment on that aspect. Very good for media, exceptionally clear screen.

Battery life is a bit on the short side but overall for this sort of money it is an excellent buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed review but overall good 9 May 2011
By Mark H
When i first started to load it up and start all the programs etc. it was very laboured and slow. Once i got everything installed and running it worked very well. It took a total of 36 hours of downloading updates which was unavoidable. Once updated, I defragged the harddrive and it worked far quicker than i had seen before. I was amazed when i copied a film file from my external harddrive to my desktop and the 640mb file took just 25seconds to copy over. Very impressed.

Overall, for 450, it is an absolute bargain!

5.0 out of 5 stars My new Samsung 27 July 2011
It took a little getting used to but it is by far the best laptop I have used, (this is my third). I like the clearness of the screen and the ease of getting around. It is so easy to alter the contrast as well as other individual items (which, when you are in your eighties is very useful). I wish I had changed before now. The price was pretty good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best laptop I've had! 9 Aug 2011
I bought this laptop after only having my previous laptop 2 years and a fault on the motherboard making it an economic right off, so I thought I would get as many features as possible for the price. I was not disappointed! The extra big screen is great for my web site design and makes using fireworks and Dreamweaver a breeze with everything clear and schrolling across the workspace not necessary. It's quick start up with plenty of storage. Not over keen on the second drive being available for backup as it makes more sense to me to store externally but you can at least change the percentage of memory used for 2nd drive. Good qwerty keyboard with seperate number pad which I find really useful, although the space bar is a little short and I keep on hitting the alt gr key but guess I'll get used to it, certainly worth the effort. Love the colour scheme, stunning burgundy red!

5.0 out of 5 stars My new shiny red Samsung R730 notebook 26 Aug 2011
By Cairo
Absolutely delighted with this (so far). As it was being delivered internationally the VAT was deducted at source so this cost me a total, delivered, of a whopping 333 GBP - I don't think you can get better than that!
I did an Amazon search for a large screen size with some random specs and it came up with a choice of 3, one (Toshiba) had poor reviews and the other similar spec'd one was over 100 GBP dearer, I did some further research to see what was available elsewhere and returned to this, my first and origional choice.
Delivery here can be atrocious and you can randomly get stung with some nasty import charges, so I was chuffed to pieces when this arrived 10 days later with no additional charges.
Being a larger screen I was glad to see that it was no monster, with the additional bonuses of being lighterweight than my old one and not quite as red as as it looked in it's mug shot - I wasn't keen on red but bought this because of price and specifications, not the colour.
I had expected to dedicate my whole evening to getting the notebook up and running, however, I plugged it in, opened the lid and started it up, I had to make a few (semi-intelligent) decisions in answer to some questions and I was online within about 10 minutes.
The only downside so far it that the anticipated Windows Update downloads arrived but didn't install successfully - twice - and I ended up doing these with a manual download which took a while along with a couple of glasses of wine (the reason for buying this was that my old notebook consumed too much wine one night and never recovered fully.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good laptop 20 July 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a great laptop for the price, the only downfall i found up to now (in the 2 weeks i have had it) is the wireless signal, its fine in the same room as the router-but when i take the laptop upstairs the signal either goes lower or quite a few times, the signal has gone completely.
I dont have that problem with my other HP laptop.
Other than that im very happy with my samsung laptop :)
