4.0 out of 5 stars The screen, 11 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Series 9 NP900X4C 15-inch Laptop (Black) - (Intel Core i5 3317UM 1.7GHz, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit) (Personal Computers)
I have 13" series 9 X3B - love it. But I wanted the Ivy Bridge and 8GB memory (the X3B memory is not upgradeable), and a bigger screen for dev. The X3B is still capable of running VMS's but not more than one at once.

However, after going from the brilliant screen on the 13" to the horrible tn panel on the 15" I just couldn't take it. Side by side the colours are so washed out, and the screen is so bright! It takes some really fiddling to the the screen looking even remotely good - but then the viewing angle is so shallow there's just no good way to even look at the screen? What were Samsung thinking putting such an inferior screen in what should be their flagship laptop product, or fixing the memory of the 13" to 4GB for that matter.

I like the size of the 15", the build quality and the specs, everything except that damn screen. I'll buy another 13" unless they announce a plan to fix the screen
