Lemon Warning!

Shaun F. Mathis "Shamat77", Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: Great specs, great price, great look, HORRIBLE reliability! I bought this in December 2012. August 2014 my battery no longer accepts a charge. This isn't my first PC. I never leave it on the charger all night just normal use. Samsung refuses to honor my expired warranty.

A true lemon

CHR, Amazon
9 May 2014
  • Summary: We purchased the Samsung Ultrabook because of its good ratings, but we have had nothing but problems with this computer. We have owned it for one year and three days. In that time, it has been in twice for repairs.

Returned the next day

Barry, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • 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.

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.

The wi-fi doesn't work

Frederick E. Ferguson "raichle", Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: The wi-fi didn't work at all when I first bought it. I applied the Windows updates and it worked sporadically. Eventually the wi-fi died completely. I spent hours on the phone with Samsun employees who didn't speak English. I eventually returned the unit for repair.

Snake-Bit Computer - Horrible Samsung Customer Service

Angela "coffeefirst", Amazon
14 March 2013
  • Summary: We received a Samsung Ultra Series 5 computer, model # NP520U4C-A01UB for Christmas. My brother had purchased the computer at a Best Buy in Wisconsin. During New Year's weekend, I took the computer out of the box and turned it on.

Inherent fault

A. Nixon, Amazon
21 May 2015
  • Summary: I had this laptop for 2 years. The hinge snapped on the back, and also loosened a wire so the screen does not work. This is a common issue with the laptop, usually repaired under warranty.

Delivered with viruses on laptop

safa, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: Now, for £360, i expect a laptop in great condition, that is clean and has a decent amount of RAM for easy usage. In return, i receive a Samsung laptop that was wrapped in cheap film and packaged to a decent degree, it had a clean screen and relatively unscratched surface (mostly).

It didn't work!

Helen Appelbe, Amazon
18 May 2014
  • Summary: The touch screen was unreliable and kept jumping around, changing size and resolution all by itself. We sent it back and bought an Asus which is great!

Looks great. But that's it.

TewyUK, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Since opening the box three days ago, I've had nothing but trouble with this laptop. The touch screen has a mind of it's own and clicks constantly from the bottom left corner of the screen.
