I love this laptop

Dieselfumes "Aviator", Amazon

  • Summary: Pros ------- Feels solid and not too heavy built well Screen responsiveness is very good (for new users of Win 8 and 8.1 (free upgrade) it may seem the screen is too sensitive but once you get the hang of touch screen interface you will love it. for the price i paid it was an extreme value for money as a borderline ultrabook and reliability of samsung ( own a S4 and galaxy note tablet 10.1) all of them perform flawlessly.

Returned the next day

  • Summary: I ordered this computer, and while I was told it had a backlit keyboard by the seller...it did not, so I received a refund. I just want everyone to have a clear answer on that, it does NOT have a backlit keyboard. Also I was extremely disappointed in the screen quality. I ended up with an asus for $800, and when you put the two screens next to each other, It is a joke that Samsung calls this an HD screen. Very dull and pixelated. I would recommend Asus UX302 at bestbuy.

Almost a good Ultrabook but with 1 MAJOR flaw

Matt S., Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: There are plenty of good things to say about this laptop/Ultrabook (NP540U3C-A01CB) but they're irrelevant because the Intel hardware/software doesn't allow you to connect to wifi. More specifically, the wifi is very spotty and if you're able to connect to wifi internet, it will lose the connection immediately. If you conduct an internet search about this, you'll see that it is a widespread issue.

Almost a really good laptop/ultrabook (wifi issues)

Anonymous035, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: There is a known issue with Intel wifi hardware/software that Samsung and Intel haven't bothered to fix. I've had the laptop for over a year and still can't get it corrected. The wifi will connect but is sporadic at best. It probably works 20% of the time. If you're planning to use the wifi as a primary means of connectivity, look to another laptop and/or brand. I'm actually quite disappointed in Samsung for not addressing this issue.

Didn't like

Vladimir Nemirovsky, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: It was incredibly slow and either had some defects or viruses. I never figure out which. After running Norton scans and running anti malware products for few days I gave up. Contacted the seller. To my surprise, they were very helpful and accepted the return without any issues. Even paid for the shipping. Recommend Amazon but not the product.

It is an excellent laptop

  • Summary: It is an excellent laptop. Very light. I bought two of them this black Friday and migrated on Saturday from my old (2010) laptop without any problem. With its SSD buffer drive this laptop is flying. It is much faster than my old one.
