Review Samsung Series 5 530U4E-S02DE Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
29 March 2013
  • Summary: Understatement. Samsung restyles its midrange dubbed Series 5 with plain, high-end looks and fresh components. Onboard we find a matte 14-inch screen, a dual-core processor from Intel and a dedicated graphics from AMD. This configuration is currently priced at about 800 Euros (~$1034).
  • Pros: Attractive design, Decent build & stability, Ports placed at the back, Modern communication features, RAM is easy to upgrade, Compelling input devices, Good application and graphics performance, AMD's Radeon HD 8750M ensures gaming fun, Sound of JBL's stereo speakers, Consumption rates & battery runtime, The new design, the good input devices, the performance of AMD's graphics unit and the battery runtime.
  • Cons: Only one USB 3.0 port, VGA out only usable via optionally available adapter, Hard drive and fan cannot be accessed directly, TN screen's middling rates, Noticeable temperature increase in Office use due to disabled fan, A better screen that should definitely be brighter. We do not expect a Full HD display but at least a decent TN screen for a price of 800 Euros (~$1034).
