I purchased this on 15th June not from Amazon I should mention. I feel it fair to point out that I don't think I have ever brought a pc or laptop that did not have teething problems and the review on here is a very fair assessment the biggest headache is the amount of updates but once you get past this and set up with what you want it is a beautiful piece of kit and for the price paid I feel good hardware especially as its brand and so often I find you get bottom range graphic cards etc.

I am undecided if the teething problems with this laptop is to do with Windows 8 or Samsung updates I know one thing whatever you do avoid updating the wireless LAN driver I tried it twice once when I first set it up then a second time after doing a factory reset and on both occasions this lead to a constant loss of service. However this can be easily remedied by rolling back the driver via Network Hardware.

The Windows 8 updates seemed to work without a hitch if you let the system do it automatically rather than try and rush through as i like to but in all cases the updates do eventually apply. Be warned one of the recent updates to the bios comes through via the Samsung software update programs this may fail to apply several times from what I can tell this was more to do with Samsung not expecting so many people updating at the same time I could be wrong that's just from what forums said.

Firstly this is the best looking laptop I've come across, really solidly built.

It is early doors but the battery life seems outstanding compared to my old Asus.

The screen is to die for, the bezel is really thin and the and the glass front just makes it look ultra modern. It's meant to be anti glare, I'm not sure if this is true as it's quite reflective on a bright, sunny day.

I'd agree with other users that it takes a while to set up out of the box, I think this is more to do with Win 8 than the actual laptop. I now have it set up as I want it and am really pleased with the way it's functioning. It did need over 50 Windows updates straight out of the box.

I don't use the tracker pad as I prefer a wireless mouse so haven't even tried to use it.

I really like the backlit keyboard, it's a feature I wasn't expecting and it's surprising how useful it can be.

Be warned this does not have a CD/Blu-ray drive, again this doesn't bother me as this is the way of the future. All the media services I use are subscription/streaming so this isn't an issue for me. I use Office 365, download my Adobe software and use Netflix/Xbox Music etc.

In summary it's a powerful, stunning looking laptop with a few set up niggles. If truth be told it would have scored 4 out the box but a 6 for looks and functionality :-)

Update - Had a few issues that have been resolved by updating the AMD Graphics driver and Intel Wireless Card. The graphics driver was causing Outlook 2013 to crash on start up (fixed by update from AMD website). Wireless was dropping out intermittently (fixed by update). Hope this helps anyone with the same issues. Apart from these niggles the laptop is proving a dream to use.

Now I have got this laptop setup it is a fast and powerful machine which is a pleasure to have and use.

But, getting to this point has been a long and painful journey, and I've been working with Computers since the days of punch cards in the late 1970's! This laptop has a very good specification, however, it would appear that Samsung has somewhat rushed it out and been a bit careless with the software build - it may be just my laptop, but unlikely according to a number of reviews I have now read.

The first issue I had was when I opened the box and there was nothing useful in terms of documentation, and when I started it up for the first time it didn't ask me to create a 'Factory Reset' backup so I was a bit surprised. After finding the Samsung Recovery software the only option it gives is for a Network Disk backup; after a bit of research in the manual (link in Taskbar) I discovered you could do it to an external Hard Drive, but not to DVD or a USB flash drive. There is also a set of backups taken to the hard drive but I didn't go into that yet.

The next set of problems I had was trying to complete the 'Windows Updates' which kept giving errors, and once fixed gave more errors and on and on it went. I then did a Factory Restore to try again - but this had the same results.

My final effort was to do a Factory Reset and before doing anything else I installed Norton Utilities and ran a full scan. This found a total of 449 errors in the registry which it fixed; I completed the rest of the recommendations including a defrag of the hard drive and then went on with the rest of the build problem free.

There are also updates that need doing from Samsung which includes hardware drivers and software updates, so don't miss these out.
