5.0 out of 5 stars Good spec for a good price 28 April 2011
Verified Purchase
There is already a good review for this machine. I took the plunge as getting an i5 processor and 6gb ram for this price it seems a bargain (549.99)

Just to add, if anybody is interested, the Windows experience score taken the first day of ownership:

Processor 6.9
memory 6.9
Graphics 4.9
3D gaming graphics 5.8
Hard disk 5.9

The only "negative" i can find is the machine is a little on the big side - not massive, but a little big. The keyboard has a large built in wrist rest area where the touch pad is. A nice touch is the numerical pad, something I have never had on a lap top.

All in all I'm very happy with my purchase and grateful for the previous reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars at this price its the best spec you will get 1 May 2011
After owning a Samsung R60plus since may 2008 , i decided it was time to get a new laptop.
Having owned other makes before i decided i would like to stay with a samsung as they are reliable and the build quality is really good.

Delivery was really quick.(2days)

Inside the box is a recovery cd , laptop , battery , quickstart guide and power lead.
It was really straight forward to setup and within 30 minutes i was good to go.

As soon as you start the laptop it asks you to partition the harddrive , so i set my main c: drive at 150gb and left the rest to drive D , which suits my purposes really as i will not be installing alot of software.

I removed the trial version of Norton security and office 2010 and installed my own version of office 2007 and mcafee security ( which is free with o2 broadband).

There is quite a bit of trial version software preloaded, which i really hate , but once removed , its no big deal.

The first thing i did was charge the battery and head over to my brothers house to show him my new laptop. We decided to see how HD video on youtube performed ( we did this at his house as he has btinfinity ( 40mb connection)
Well the picture quality was stunning but the screen kept flickering once in a while which worried me slightly.

I got home and tried the youtube videos at home and the same thing happened , so i removed the battery and plugged it in directly to the mains and the problem vanished. It would appear the graphics card doesnt have enough power from the battery to perform during hd playback but works fine from mains power.

3.0 out of 5 stars Problem with graphics card 15 May 2011
Verified Purchase
A reviewer said they must be unlucky. Well im part of the unlucky ones club too :(

I recieved this laptop this week after ordering it from Amazon after reading great reviews here and other sites. I was really looking forward to using it. The laptop itself is lovely looking and the LED screen fails to dissappoint. Its bright, sharp ,and just what I wanted. Thats a plus point for this laptop. Anyway after setting Windows 7 for 1st time use, I thought everything was ok. Then as I was doing normal browsing for the first time, the laptop screen went black and went back to normal after about 4 seconds with an error message popping up from the system tray saying "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered". Underneath that was another message "Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 259.93 stopped responding and has successfully recovered." I didnt know what this was and thought it was a one of situation. Anyway it happened several times after, so I realised there was a fault. Firstly I tried via the Samsung built in help and the message I got was my drivers were up to date. I then went on the NVIDIA website and for some reason the 315M graphics card was listed for driver updates. I did an auto search to identify my card and that didnt help. Basically I tried all possible methods and it was concluded my graphics card drivers were up to date. There was no option for me to roll back drivers. I have also been on the laptop's device manager and that also said my driver was up to date. For a number of days I have been searching on many forums and so many people seem to have this issue and many have failed to resolve it, therefore it is a hardware issue with the graphics card rather than a driver solution.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it, I love it ,I love it. 10 Jun 2011
Bang for your buck! That's an apt description for this lovely little powerhouse of a laptop. It's got buckets of memory, a very fast processor and more RAM than you can shake a stick at. The design is cosmetically appealing and it's vibrant colours and screen resolution will have you drooling. The connectivity is also above par. Plug in HDMI cable straight into your flat screen TV and the picture will be transferred to the larger screen automatically.
The only negative I can think about is par for the course for laptops in general , and that is the sound quality. Slightly tinny, but this really is a very minor drawback. Pay double the price for the same spec in a more fashionable brand if you wish. But DO consider this computer first. Remember Samsung is THE up and coming name now in LCD TV's, if they continue with the good work they have laid out on this little darling then they could make inroads in the premium portable computer market.
In conclusion , I have been using my new Samsung for a month now and I am as happy as a pig in the proverbial. Stunning value for money. If undecided I strongly urge you to hit "BUY" ,you won't regret it. Good luck guys.
