Samsung Series 5 NP530U4C
The Power of a High Performance Notebook
Having an ultra-portable notebook has always meant sacrificing storage – until now. Unlike other slim notebooks the Samsung Series 5 ULTRA has a huge amount of space for your files and an integrated Optical Disk Drive (ODD). Its ultra large capacity HDD can store up to 1 TB of data, so can always enjoy your favorite music, pictures and movies.
The Ultimate Design for On the Go
Carrying a heavy notebook is always a big burden, especially for professionals who are always on the road. The Samsung Series 5 ULTRA is amazingly portable and perfectly designed for a mobile life. Because it’s remarkably thin (20.9 mm) and light (1.78 kg with SSD / 1.81 kg with HDD) it’s easy to take it with you anytime and anywhere – so you’ll always have your own office.
Samsung Fast Solutions
You can work and play even more efficiently with the blazingly fast performance of the Samsung Series 5 ULTRA. With Fast Start wakes from sleep in 2 seconds. Plus Fast Browsing makes frequently viewed web pages run 2x faster.
Samsung Superior Display Technology
Every photo, video, website and document just looks stunning with the Samsung Series 5 ULTRA’s 14.0” HD SuperBright screen, Image Enhancer technology and powerful GT 620M (1 GB) graphics. Your eyes will feel less tired with 50% brighter screen and it’s also anti-reflective, so you can see everything clearly even in the sunshine.
Expandable and upgradable features
Not having the right tools can really hamper your ability to work efficiently. The Samsung Series 5 ULTRA includes a HDD (max. 1 TB) with over 2x the capacity of other slim models and up to 8 GB of upgradable memory to help you multi-task effectively. Plus it includes a full HDMI port, VGA port and integrated optical disk drive.
Professional Durability & Style
The Samsung Series 5 ULTRA unites professional style and durability. The sophisticatedly simple and refined exterior is a cool metallic aluminum, while the underside is made with fiber glass that’s light but resistant to wear and damage. So you’ll always be shielded from the bumps and knocks of life on the road – while still looking good.
On the Go – Without Stopping to Recharge
Now you need never worry about unexpectedly having to stop work. The Samsung Series 5 ULTRA delivers up to 7.0 hours of power on a single charge. So whether you’re on a flight or at your favorite café you can stay focused on your work – or having fun! And Samsung’s BatteryLife Plus technology extends the battery life up to 1,500 cycles / 3 years.

I have read a number of reviews about the wireless adapter (Intel Centrino Advance N 6235) and how a lot of people are having problems with this part of the laptop, experience frequent and unexpected loss of connection. I have the exact same problem and it is very frustrating to have to reset the wireless adapter several times whilst using the internet for no apparent reason. It is sad that such a top of the range laptop comes with such a simple fault and so far I have not found a fix for this yet. I have followed the instructions of a number of online sites discussing this problem suggesting to update the driver for the Intel adapter (to v 15.2) and also uninstalling it and then re-installing the latest driver from the Intel website. None of this seems to have solved this issue. I will do a bit more research on this but otherwise have no choice but to return this laptop. I don't understand why Samsung and Intel have not found a permanent solution to this problem yet.
Good points: Rock solid reliability, quick startup with its cached drive (about 15s from power on to login, another 10s to desktop), fan is very quiet. Haven't heard it switch to overdrive yet, unlike my old Sony Vaio, which sounded like it was about to take off. Currently watching TV in background and cannot hear anything from laptop apart from clacking of keys. Screen is matte. You'll either love it or loathe it. If you use laptop outdoors it might suit you; not so good if you like viewing pictures or watching DVDs, catch up TV on BBC iplayer, youtube etc. Battery life (currently 4 months old) is very good- can get about 4-5h before needing a recharge. I run Windows 7 and MS Office 2010 and it is absolutely fine- I just want an unobtrusive machine.
Bad points: Advertised as an ultrabook, but it is HEAVY. Wouldn't recommend carrying it about- suggest you buy its smaller brother without DVD drive and touchscreen (Samsung NP540U3C-A01 Ultrabook, Intel Core i5, 1.7GHz, 6GB RAM, 500GB, 13.3" Touchscreen; 1.4kg). If I had the chance to swop, I would probably go for the latter, but not with Windows 8. But that is for another review...
Buying laptops, like most things, is a matter of taste. For me this one is fantastic and, for what it's worth, having had a Dell and a few Toshibas before, I'm now converted to Samsung.
N.B - For an Ultrabook, I felt it was a tad bit heavy.
I dont know all that much about laptops, but for student use its really small and light and suits my needs perfectly :)
I found this easy to get started, very responsive with the ssd cache and i5 chip. I cleared out all the bloatware and removed Samsung's recovery partition. ( I use windows home server ). This cleared valuable disk space and made a new 25gb drive.
I have had no problems at all and wireless speed is fine. I did update drivers via Intel's website rather than Samsung as these seemed the most recent.
Screen is matt which is good though it is obviously not hd quality and movies look better on my 10" android tablet rather than the laptop. Battery life seems excellent. I have it set to only 80% charge via the Samsung utility as this is plugged in a lot of the time and so hopefully will extend battery life.
I have had many laptops and this is the best yet. Great build quality. I think the screen is perhaps the only part that I would have preferred a higher spec - but for the price it is a great bargain.
