Samsung Series 5 13.3" Touch Screen Intel Core i5/8GB/128GB SSD Ultrabook Review (NP540U3C-A01CA)

26 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Apparently I've stated that there are quite a few faults with the Ultrabook, but at the same time, it didn't have anything catastrophically wrong that compromised the experience, other than the poor performing SanDisk U100 Solid State Drive it came with, though it still ends up being quicker than a normal spinning hard drive in most cases. The only other real attribute that makes this Ultrabook stand apart from others is the touch screen.

  • Conclusion: The Samsung Series 5 540U3C succeeds a good ultrabook and improves it in many ways.

  • Cons: Display hinges, Contrast and black values

Review Samsung Series 5 530U3C-A01DE Ultrabook

12 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Series 5 530U3C-A01DE ultrabook follows in the footsteps of the previous model which implemented many good features.

Trusted Reviews
9 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Does a touchscreen laptop make sense? If you think so then the Samsung Series 5 NP540U3C is a good bet – it delivers in most areas, even if the screen doesn’t inspire. But if, like us, a touchscreen laptop doesn’t work for you, there’s no shortage of better options.

  • Cons: Screen very reflective, Iffy horizontal and vertical viewing angles, Touchscreen not that useful, Large premium for touchscreen

Samsung Series 5 Ultra NP 540U3C

12 December 2012
  • Conclusion: In short, the Samsung Ultra Series 5 is actually a pretty good ultrabook, despite its middling screen and one particularly disappointing omission from its feature set (backlit keyboard, we’re looking at you). It has its notable up sides – such as very good performance, a fine keyboard and superb audio. However, users’ enjoyment factor of the device is going to largely depend on their response to Windows 8, as Microsoft’s newest OS is stamped all over the device.
  • Pros: Excellent build, Beautiful design, Comfortable keyboard, Superb sound
  • Cons: No keyboard backlighting, Middling screen, Poor viewing angles, Bloatware and Windows 8 idiosyncrasies

Samsung Serie 5 Ultra Touch (NP540U3C)

3 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Das Samsung Serie 5 Ultra Touch kommt zwar noch mit Intels dritter Core i-Generation zum Käufer, kann dafür bei Verarbeitung und Akkulaufzeit punkten. Im Test hinterlässt das Ultrabook unterm Strich einen guten Eindruck. Lediglich beim Display gibt es deutliche Abzüge.
