For the price this product was reasonable good. The quality is acceptable, although it doesn't really feel much like leather.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice Laptop, 16 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read many reviews of laptops in this price / specification range and eventually narrowed it down to the Y500. I wanted to use it mostly for Photoshop work and so purchased the version with 16Gb RAM. Photoshop starts up very quickly now compared to my previous HP which was getting a bit old in the tooth and working on photos is now so easy. The computer is very well made and the keyboard is very easy to use and the keys are well spaced. The touchpad is less easy to use and I would suggest anyone who buys this computer to invest in a separate mouse. The screen is excellent and the colours are extremenly vivid and sharp. I have the bluray drive and it is a pleasure to watch movies on this screen. The sound is also excellent and loud enough for most peoples needs. The battery life was quoted as only being for 3 (ish) hour, but I will be using it on mains power most of the time so its not really an issue. It is a little heavy, but it is what I expected. The 1TB hard drive means that I can store most of my current photos on it without worrying about running out of space.This series of laptops say that the drives (Ultrabay) can be swapped out and additional graphics cards, cooling fans (for gamers) or hard drives can be added, but it seems impossible to find anywhere that sells the Ultrabay products, Lenovo UK do not seems to sell them and even Leovo in the US don't advertise them as available.
So far I am very impressed with this laptop and have no regrets in purchasing it. It is perfect for gamers or someone looking to do Photoshop work, it is very fast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little Samsung, 25 Oct. 2011
I needed a small computer for travelling and had purchased a Samsung netbook several years ago which was passed down through the family. It was a great little machine, which is still used daily and so I had no hesitation in looking again at the latest Samsung netbooks.
The specification on the NF210 was good with the dual core processor and I also decided to upgrade the RAM to the maximum of 2GB, which does make a difference on some of the applications. It is a good looking netbook, with the silver finish making it quite classy and the curved design sets it apart from the run of the mill netbooks from other manufacturers. So far the battery life seems amazingly good and with a claimed life of up to 10 hours makes it great when on planes etc.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this netbook to anyone looking for a good looking but functional computer for travelling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality product at a low price, 15 Aug. 2011
In the short usage I have made for this lens hood it does everything expected at a much lower price than the equivalent Canon product. It fits well and "does what it says on the tin".

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems a good product, 5 Oct. 2010
Easy to apply to the screens on the camera body and it looks like a quality product, but having only started to use it it is maybe too early to really say. It will definitely help to protect the screens and at at the low price it is it would not be too expensive to replace in a year or so time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Jazz films ever, 5 Oct. 2010
I had searched for years to find this movie in Region 2 format and eventually found it on Amazon. This movie and Bird ( Clint Eastwood directed ) are probably the best Jazz movies ever and Dexter Gordon is outstanding as the lead character. The scenes in the jazz club are very moody and the soundtrack by Herbie Hancock ( also in the movie ) is brilliant.
Top movie for jazz fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Battery Grip for 7D, 5 Oct. 2010
As you would expect for a Canon product this battery grip was of excellent quality, all fittings felt sturdy and having already owned a similar battery grip for a 20D I found it easy to install on the camera. Obviously more expensive than the other grips available from the copy manufacturers, but having spent a lot of money on the camera felt it was better to get a Canon grip and avoid any compatibility problems.
