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.
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: 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.
Excerpt: "Samsung N140 10.1 inch Netbook (Atom N270 1.6GHz Processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, BT, XP Home, 9 Hour Battery, Black) I needed a netbook that would perform two main roles. One to contain all my documents and emails for work and two to be portable enough to carry in my case. I did buy and install a 2GB Ram which is really easy to install yourself (just be aware of any impact on your warranty). The screen is a perfectly acceptable 10.1 inches and there ...
Pros: battery life, size, ease of use
Cons: 1 GB Ram (I upgraded), losing internet connection after hibernation
Summary: I bought myself this netbook as it fits perfectly on the small tables in my lecture theatres, and helps me to organise my notes in a much more effective manner than pen and paper which would just get sprawled across the floor. With the year's free MS Office it is an even better product and totally fit for purpose. The 250gb HDD is a brilliant feature too. Since purchasing the netbook my main Acer Laptop died and I have had just the netbook to use as my main computer.
Summary: I bought this for working and dossing while on trains, planes and buses but now it has become the computer I work on most - even at the office, etc. Of course it's still only a netbook so has to be treated with patience (maybe a memory upgrade would help in this regard) and the sound from the speakers isn't great if you want to listen to music or watch a film without earphones - but really, how often do you do that with a netbook anyways?
