don't buy samsung
19 December 2014
Summary: w8 crashed after 3 months, failed to recover, had to reinstall w.1 from scratch, isssues with soud recording - had to install driver from w7. s agent app - not uninstalling - had to delete folders ?! noisy, cracks very easy.
Summary: The computer is OK, except that the mouse pad is a bit sticky, but it came with Windows 8 which is a disaster. The commands you need with all use are not there or hidden and it is just not user friendly. Doubt I will use this computer unless it's possible to install Windows 7 or a user friendly Windows 9 comes a along.
Summary: As soon as I plugged it in the screen brought up the Samsung logo in three different places and then crashed. I tried turning it off and charging the battery pack and turned it on again, it instead keeps having a blank screen without any BIOS, logo or login menu at all. I don't know what's wrong and I'm probably going to have to send it back a mere week before I go to University :/ - Will amend once the Laptop has returned from Samsung's repair centre.
Summary: Laptop broke after 2 days. System turned off suddenly then a puff of smoke come out from the keyboard when i tried to restart. This was my first experiencwe of a Samsung laptop, will probably be my last.
Summary: Laptop has a wireless problem, it will intermittently drop even on the strongest signal. Many people have also had same issue with this model having searched around on the web. Driver update doesn't cure either - known issue with this product with no cure. We have purchased a USB wireless dongle to keep us going. Pity as in all other respects a nice, fast laptop.
Summary: On paper this laptop seemed just perfect, and the reviews i saw online suggested this too. I'd never had a Samsung before, usually went for Acers, but decided to try this out. And when it arrived I was really excited and liked the look of it, the screen, the keyboard, USB 3.0s, everything looked great. I really really wanted it to be great. But. it. is. awful. it is painful. I am bemused at why it is so bad and so slow.
Summary: Samsung 350V5C 15.6-inch Laptop - (Silver) (Intel Core i3 2.4GHz, 6GB RAM, 750 GB HDD, DVDSM DL, LAN, WLAN, Bluetooth, Webcam, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8) . Ordered and received 2 of these from another vendor. The first one developed a problem after 3 days of use: the screen covering the audio speakers at the top of the keyboard became warped - it curved up in the middle and was annoyingly visible. I arranged a return, and ordered another identical model.
Very disappointed with screen colour & inability to resolve

Summary: I regard myself as PC competent so when this came I set up & part of which was to calibrate the scene to my tastes but whatever I did I couldn't get the settings to stick. Calling Samsung Tech Support was a real pain & their suggestion didn't work. So my attitude was why was I spending so much time & stress trying to sort something that should be easily doable on a brand new laptop.
Summary: Not for me. It worked fine with Windows 8 but I didn't like Windows 8 - too 'pre packed and didn't like the integrated direct process. Tried to change it to Linux Mint but this proved impossible. However, as always, Amazon were there to rescue me with a refund and I'm now awaiting delivery of a replacement with Windows 7.
