Before buying this machine I compared Acer, Lenovo, Dell and HP. I bought the Samsung primarily because it offered an excellent processor speed (new gen i3) an Island keyboard, DHMI port and several other features I wanted, speed being the most important.

Overall, I believe this machine is excellent value for money and has been performing exceptionally well during its first few weeks of use. I can't really fault it, but in the interest of full detailed review there are a few annoying features, but even with these I believe it is well ahead of competitor products at this price level, with many feature usually only found on more expensive machines

So, the very good points are:
-Island keyboard, which are the raised button type (like apple laptops) are really excellent and usually found only on more expensive machines.
-Screen clarity and performance is excellent, probably the best screen in its class
-Good range of USB and other connectivity ports (but not USB 3)
-Functional simple design, without the design clutter of other models
-Quick start and shut down (sleep mode) are far quicker than other machines
-Outside case is ribbed so does not show finger marks or scratches
-It is very quiet, not much fan and disk noise
-RAM or hard drive upgrade is easily accessible via one removable panel
-Battery life is very good, as long as you use the batter and not leave it plugged into the main, which tends to kill battery performance
-The overall design is nice, doesn't look cheap or too plasticky. Much better than black plastic from othe manufacturers

The slightly annoying points:
-Keyboard has a very small shift key, pretty annoying when you miss it, I am getting use to it, but it should be larger (wider).

I purchased this laptop due 6yr old ACER finally giving up the ghost resulting in a need to replace ASAP! Noticed this laptop as a bestseller at the time on here and after reading the spec and reviews decided to purchase.

Quality- To be fair for the price wasn't expecting it to be on a par with my previous laptop that said it has a solid feel and stylish design, love the keyboard really makes it feel just that bit more special overall very good.

Spec.- Again very good and like so much in this review it all relates to the price. Happliy runs all everyday stuff without any issue. I'm not someone who uses my laptop for too many heavy applications so I can't comment on the laptop's ability at that point. The laptop does come with many preloaded bits from Samsung but easy enough to remove...but again for the price this is a small issue.

Overall- Very good bit of kit read the reviews and I have to say I haven't found any problems with mine so either I'm lucky or some customers have just been unlucky incline to think the later. Would happliy recommend for an everyday user. Very good buy don't be put off by any poor reviews.

Generally I have been ok with the product, but I feel it suffers from a couple of drawbacks that would cause me to hesitate to recommend it.

Pros:
1. big screen
2. cost
3. performance for price tag
4. looks good

Cons:
1. Keyboard is uncomfortable to work on, especially when not on a desk, but rather in your lap
2. tracking pad is too big and makes it awkward to work on. Buttons are to big and almost takes 2 hands to operate as a result.
3. Screen colours are bad, it always looks over exposed, no matter how much I play with the gamma, brightness, colour balance, etc. it never seems quite right and is rather annoying.

All in all, for the cost of the laptop though, if looking for a budget laptop it is not a bad buy, but the screen colour issue is extremely annoying and would put me off buying a 2nd one.

Samsung RV520 15.6 inch Laptop
After looking at reviews of laptops for about 6 months I decided that the Samsung RV520 looked to have all the requirement that I required. My Desktop was like me getting old (I am 74 Years Old ) and slowing down and I thought it was about time I updated. With the laptop I also ordered a Brother DCP-J315W Wireless Printer, Microsoft Office, Laptop Bag & Books on Windows 7, Microsoft Office and Excel (all to be reviewed later)

First Amazon delivery was great everything came at once well packed and well within the delivery estimate. The Samsung RV520 was so easy to setup, within 15 minutes of unpacking it was up and running, setting it up to the wi-fi took longer finding the right code and making sure that I used lower or higher case as required.

Everything works well and the speed is fast and I would fully recommend this laptop. The keyboard is easy to use, screen size is just right and it has all that I want. There are couple of things that I do not like the DVD tray seems a bit flimsy and I wish the screen was non reflective, but no real problem and the battery live of only about 4 hours (why don't they have Solar powered Laptops or do they?).

Yes! again I say a good Buy, an Affordable Price, it does everything that I want and a great service from Amazon.
