Summary: Had one for about 18 months only used as backup for laptop and when away on hols. Turned on couple of weeks ago - nothing noticed the ac adapter light was flickering so unplugged it. Felt the underneath of case VERY hot. Obviously it has cooked itself not sure due to ac adapter or the machine but dead as a dodo. Repair will probably not be an option (too expensive so bin it and get another netbook but not Samsung.
A decent netbook with a good spec suited to basic PC tasks and watching videos
3 November 2012
Excerpt: Ultimately these netbooks are made for emails, word processing and surfing the web. The N140 can carry out these functions perfectly and you can comfortably watch videos on it too. Obviously, however, when you consider the graphics card and processor, powerful games and excessive multi-tasking are not possible. Having said that, I have been impressed with the speed of this device. It really does pack quite a punch considering its size.
Summary: Absolute rubbish. This computer didn't last 18 months without the hard driver dying. Amazon just pass the buck on repairs and Samsung don't bother to answer your emails, they don't want to know to you. Its not worth the money, for a computer hardly used will not be buying Samsung again.
Summary: N140 has great build quality, Windows XP means I know what I'm doing, good performance and battery life well up to the advertised 10 hrs. Super bright screen, and very good wireless pereformance to router. Bought the 2Gb upgrade, which seems worth it. Improves performance, copes with a pretty large spread sheet I imported very well.
Summary: Ive had mine for 14 months now and it is still working like a dream, i do aim to upgrade it as somethimes if you have a lot of programs running it can slow down a little but its expected as after all it is a netbook. I would recommend this netbook to anyone.
Pros: it looks good, the track pad works perfect, its upgradeable to 2gb RAM. The battery seems to last for ever!
Summary: I bought this as a luxury item that i didnt really need. It did come very handy though on a 3 week euro roadtrip for keeping data on all my hotels, journeys, tourist attraction, itinerary. Its my first netbook and the first thing you notice is how slow it is compared to a desktop PC. I am sure that laptops are also much quicker. I did upgrade the memory as advised by other buyers and it does help but still not enough.
Summary: After research, I bought the Samsung N140 Netbook in March 2010 so that I may be able to use at home and when away each week on business. From the start I have had poor wireless access, amounting to c20 secs at a time, although the Netbook confirmes an excellent connection. I would be able to get on the Net for a few seconds then disconnect, with any error messages indicating it was a software fault, therefore I did not return the Netbook. After 9 months a relation,I.T.
Summary: This was bought as a present for my daughter, who has really enjoyed using this product from day one. If you need a netbook for general computing and surfing the web then this is the one for you.Handles all task thrown at it well. For example you can watch Youtube clips, open up a document or two and transfer files to a storage device with no interruption or slowing down of the system.
Summary: I love this netbook. It looks brill in the while and the free protective cover is very usefull. It was easy to set up (I am not a computer whiz). Its small enough to take on holiday and large enough to use comfortably at home. Keep it on my coffee table to use as and when, usually about 4 times a day. Take it away on business to use in my hotel room using free hot spots. Took it to the USA and logged in every day (free)to send emails home.
