The netbook looks lovely, very nice on the outside with a tiled effect on the lid. The hinges seem secure and the whole unit feel very well built. The keyboard is lovely, with the keys in the chiclet style, and all nicely spaced, the whole unit has a feeling of quality. There is also the nice touch of a chrome trim around the base of the unit, which matches the Samsung logo on the top cover, which gives it a bit of bling! The screen is very nice, unlike a lot of netbooks it has a matt effect, this eliminates the problem of glare and makes the screen easier to see outside, I think it looks fantastic and is very bright and clear. Overall I would give the appearance of the unit 5 stars.
It took me about an hour to get the computer set up for the first time, but I enjoy this bit and it was all very simple to do, I have never used windows 7 before but so far it is working well, and after reading advice on the internet I do not plan to upgrade the starter edition. The only downfall of not upgrading is that you can't change the backround of the computer, but I don't think it is worth £50 to do this.
So far I have only used the computer for internet use, and seem to be getting 6+ hrs out of it before I start to think about charging it, this is with the 1GB standard RAM, not sure if the RAM upgrade will effect this or not. It runs silently, and I mean SILENTLY!! It is so quiet that you have to hold it right next to your ear to be able to hear the very slight hum that it is making.Read more ›
So why only 3 stars?
First: the hype. You look at the Samsung website and the blurb that came with it and you expect 10 hours of battery time. OK I know that all manufacturers exaggerate but I expected perhaps 8 hours ... forget. Between 4 and 5 hours is more realistic and that isn't doing much with it. Granted I changed the power mode settings because to achieve 'optimum' battery life Samsung had set the screen to such a dim level that you can't actually see very much (especially with the frosted screen) - but even so I doubt they would achieve 10 hours even if they left it in sleep mode!
Second: the hype. Stickers on the machine, blurb on the website - Samsung Fast Start. Well first off they don't ask do you want to use this abomination and after you reboot you have to wait about 20 minutes while it prepares 'fast start'. I'm not sure what this is actually supposed to achieve but after the 'optimization' it started slower than before and I then discovered I couldn't change any of the power settings relating to shutdown keys and buttons. At first I thought this was a bug with the windows set up and spent a couple of hours trying to find a solution but no it is a 'feature' of fast start.Read more ›
The screen is bright, sharp and clear, the keyboard (as i am discovering writing this review) is brilliant; well spaced island keys and nearly full size. The battery life isnt the quoted 10hrs battery life under usual usage, but it is around a still great 7-8hrs.
By far the most impressive thing is the machine and the heat it doesnt produce. It can sit on your lap for hours without the fan starting once, or it even producing anything more than skin temperature!
Personally i really like the design of the shell - it may be plastic but it feels really strong and classy. By the far the most shocking part of this netbook is how it copes when you want to relax. I downloaded the demo of the original Call of Duty, and it will play it fine and at a good Frames per Second! Im thinking i might try flight control sometime.
One last thing; for those who think that windows 7 starter will drive you nuts because you cannot change the desktop background. Rest assured, you can! I spent 5 minutes on google and found a tool which will change it (and only the background) to any picture you want.
All in all, this is a great netbook and i am very very very pleased with my purchase.
