Summary: Almost a year and it is freezing up all of the time. It seems to be fairly warm air on the sides. I bought a laptop cooler pad and it helps, but after half an hour or so it still skips/ stutters, freezes, and now occasionally crashes completely. The fan spins very slowly when hot instead of speeding up. I went to Samsung's website for a new BIOS as there were no fan options in the BIOS that I could find.
Summary: I've had this laptop for almost 2 years. It has let me down in multiple ways. I use it for school and roaming the internet. I am not satisfied that I received a blue screen once so soon after i got it. and when I got it, the battery was half dead and the model was made in Nov-Dec of 2011 when I bought it in Feb 2011. I expect laptops to LAST. Not die after two years of use. It lasted me quite a while, unlike some unlucky people.
Summary: Struggled to overcome Windows 8 incompatibility with a lot of software I use all the time, but count myself as successful on that. Now, less than 4 months since I started using this computer, I have key caps falling off (as in broken, and they don't snap back on). Replacement parts are not available readily, and I don't plan on buying a new keyboard.
Summary: Within the first few days of owning this Samsung, my computer tech who I have used for years, found a corrupted registry and other files. How could this happen? I don't know enough about computer tech to have any idea how these things happen, but it did. And the computer is STILL in the shop being worked on throughout the day today. Would you please tell me how to exchange this unit. I also installed MS Office Suite.
Summary: I didn't like Windows 8 concept. When I called about purchase I was told I could use windows 8 or if I like windows 7 better use it but it was not like that. You could use a task menu like windows 7 but more difficult touse and not actually use wiindows 7. I have new programs that are not compatible with Windows 8. I also did not like the key board and the touch pad. I ordered an HP Pro Book which I like much better.
Summary: I did quite a bit of research on this laptop but couldn't find anything that mentioned the problem with the Atheros wireless card until after I received the laptop and noticed the weak reception of my wireless signal. I own a 3 year old Dell, and it has no problem receiving a wireless N signal. Since I have a dual band router, was very disappointed to find my brand new laptop does not receive 5ghz signal from my router, but my 3 year old Dell does.
Excerpt: Ой, напишу-ка я о своём ноутбуке. Ему недавно стукнуло 4 года. Не много, да, но он уже на последнем дыхании. И вот почему. Итак, цена: я брала за 18.000 тысяч рублей. Начнём с основных характеристик: 2 ядра, 7 гб оперативки, матовый экран, блютуз, 7 часор работы без подзарядки, вес - 2,3 кг. Достоинства: Первый два года работал без сбоев, достаточно быстро, не зависал. Установлена винда 7. Ни разу не слетала. На диске D около 300 гб памяти.
Summary: Das Notebook hängt schon nach kurzer Zeit total. Kann sein, dass das auch an der Benutzung liegt, aber eigentlich muss ein Notebook nach einem halben Jahr bei Standardanwendungen flüssig und ruckelfrei laufen. So richtig zufrieden bin ich also nicht.
Summary: Ich (Studentin) habe mir nach langem Sparen endlich einen neuen Laptop gönnen wollen und habe mich auf Grund des guten Preises und des matten Displays und den anderen technischen Daten für dieses Notebook entschieden. Die ersten paar Wochen war ich super begeistert - auch mit Windows 8 hab ich keinerlei Probleme - aber dann ging es mit den Kleinigkeiten los. Als erstes war der Kartenleser auf einmal nicht mehr einsatzbereit.
