Faulty touchpad

Wilder, Amazon
1 January 2012
  • Summary: Notebook was shipped with the touchpad popping out on the top right corner.Its made of a cheap plastic and it looks like its just detached on one side. This is causing problems when trying to scroll using the touchpad. When I scroll and stop, it continues to slowly scroll down a web page.

it looked good

Matthew P., Newegg
13 September 2011
  • Summary: I thought this seemed like a solid buy, but as usual, laptops are just a photograph - locked in time; what you see is what you get and don't plan on trying to get anything else. Hopefully I can get my money back for this underrated paperweight.

Poor became slower and slower after a year

RichardHaikuWordpress, Amazon
15 April 2015
  • Summary: The first year with the laptop went well and I was pleased with the purchase. Then it gradually got slower and slower as time went on. We were not using it lots so I thought it was unlikely that the software was getting 'cluttered' and I used various cleaning programs.

Very disappoint - Blue screen error

JkH, Amazon
18 December 2012
  • Summary: I've had this laptop since the week of October 7th. The experience thus far has been rather disappointing for a number of reasons: 1. The computer gives a blue screen, says something like 'creating dump', and then shuts down, only to restart again.

Keeps Crashing

Molst, Amazon
12 March 2012
  • Summary: Bought this for my daughter who wanted a easily portable notebook. Went for the Samsung as always had good experiences and most reviews seemed positive. Worked well for a couple of weeks and then a routine windows update crashed the machine and it had to be restored from scratch.

Super Netbook, das mich in den Wahnsinn treibt

Paul Hamacher, Amazon
16 July 2012
  • Summary: Um es kurz zu machen: Das Netbook ist rundum super aber es hat eine Macke. Nach einigen Tagen oder Wochen Benutzung kommt es durch Windowsupdates dazu, dass die Helligkeitsregelung nach dem Erwachen aus dem Standbymodus manchmal nicht mehr funktioniert und die Bildschirmhelligkeit auf 100% hängt.
