Great laptop for the price. Overlooked by the market.
16 February 2015
Summary: This is an excellent laptop that is overengineered for the price. For sub-$1000 it's a great deal. It's heavy, but the 17.3 inch display is nice (matte, so you can use it in the light) and the audio is excellent. Throw an SSD in it, it comes with the cables to do so.
Summary: This laptop is the best I've owned. Never a problem with it, though I admit it was difficult getting used to Windows 8 (but that's Microsoft for you!). I received it as a gift about a year ago, and it's been used daily since then.
Summary: Wow. It's a finely tuned state of the art PC. I like it even better after wiping Windows 8 off of it and installing Windows 7. Now I have a flash drive with all the Windows 7 drivers for the NP550P7C on it, and my own copy of Windows 7, and I can wipe the whole thing and start over whenever I want.
Summary: I have had so much fun with my new laptop! Windows 8 required some learning, but the Samsung is swift, has great video, and I love the large screen. I read that it heats up a lot, but I haven't experienced that. I do wish the battery lasted longer though.

Summary: Love it. My first time with Windows 8 so still "settling in." Have problems with the "touchiness" of the keypad mouse changing the size of the text on screen, changing screens, etc., but I am sure it's just something I need to toggle in Windows 8.
Summary: This is the first laptop I've ever had. I needed something that would be able to handle massive amounts of video footage (video editing is a hobby of mine,) and be able to handle some heavy MMORPG action. This thing goes through high-graphics games and video-editing like a hot knife through butter.
