Everyday I Hope for a Functioning Laptop

Kia, Amazon
21 July 2015
  • Summary: Overall: Probably the worst purchase I have ever made. Every day I dream of the day where I can have a laptop that does more work than it takes. Cons: The graphics began crashing after three months of purchase- images will not load on webpages unless you refresh the page three times.

Not designed for Traveler

bdl88, Amazon
13 February 2015
  • Summary: Frankly, I am sorry that I chose this laptop. While I love the size and weight, the hardware has proven to be less than adequate. First, the fan on this unit is kind of loud out of the box, but it has proceeded to increase in volume over the past two years.

I love how compact it is and the mat screen

Stephanie Dickerson, Amazon
24 August 2014
  • Summary: I have owned this laptop for two years. I love how compact it is and the mat screen. However, the batter only lasts for two hours now. I have taken very good care of my laptop and the hinge that connects the screen and computer just cracked and three broken plastic screws fell out!

Bad motherboard after 45 days

Stuart Keeshin, Amazon
13 July 2012
  • Summary: After only 45 days the motherboard burned out and it's been at Samsung's only service center in Texas for over a week waiting for a part. In addition, Samsung's web site doesn't sell an extra power supply unit.

Pretty Good for the Price, But With Flaws

Edward F Fischer, Amazon
4 May 2012
  • Summary: Had the Series 5 14" for about 6 weeks now. I was very pleased with it at first, and as I have used it more several flaws have appeared. I will try not to repeat too much other reviewers, but it does merit mentioning again that this is definitely on the heavy side for an Ultrabook.

Heat and CHEAP construction!

Tokyo Sandblaster, Amazon
9 April 2012
  • Summary: As others have said, this gets incredibly hot at times. Watching a movie or doing any video editing gets this thing nuclear hot. The battery life is also horrible if pressing its capabilities.

very nice except one serious flaw

Sam C, Amazon
29 March 2012
  • Summary: I was so excited to open this up and get it started. It looked beautiful and had overall good reviews and great specs. I was very frustrated to discover, however, that the power connection was faulty. The power jack did not fit completely and fell out very easily.
