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.
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.
Obviously there are some negatives about this laptop which need to be said. Firstly the Wi-fi is a bit dodgy. I got the impression from other reviewers that it completely cuts out randomly very often. Well this isn't true, it can very slow and lose connection sometimes but it doesn't completely cut out. The problem can easily be fixed as one or two other reviewers have said. I thought it would be very hard to do so but infact it is just a matter of clicking this link and downloading the drivers available: [...]
Another negative is the speakers. They aren't as bad as some people make them out to be but they are mono sound and you can't here any base. For things like skype they are fine but for music just spend around £20 for a good 2.1 speaker set like I did (Logitech S220).
There is a fair bit of crapware already installed on the laptop but it only takes about 30 mins to uninstall.
There is also the screen. It is a very nice 15.6" HD LED screen with 1366x768 resolution which does seem quite a low resolution but infact it is very sharp and bright with excellent colours. There isn't any ghosting or a single dead pixel to sight. The only problem is the glossy screen. It reflects any light and I can always see myself in the screen. It is easy to ignore but I presume some people may find that difficult and annoying. Despite what people say I find glossy screens to look very expensive and high quality.
Back to good points. The webcam was a complete surprise. It is incredibly smooth and sharp. I was expecting a juddery piece of rubbish that I would have to upgrade but no. I don't think it is HD but it still has high definition quality whether it is 720p, 1080p or not. Cyberlink youcam which is already installed on the laptop is very good and easy to use. The funny effects that can be added to the webcam image are very good quality and work brilliantly. I certainly don't regard this program as crapware.
Another point. I saw images of this laptop and thought it looked old and not modern with the latest black matt colours. But it does look very up market even though it is £350. The silver and black toned outer shell are very attractive and look expensive. The keys are very well made. Instead of gaps in between each key there is plastic which stops any biscuit crumbs from falling in while watching BBC iPlayer.
So overall this laptop is great for everything, music, HD videos, video editing, web browsing, e-mailing, office work and even gaming (not Battlefield 3 or Crysis 2 worthy) but as I said Rome Total War, Battlefield 2 and Company of Heroes all run extremely well on medium-high settings. No lag at all.
