Mediocre - would not recommend to a friend

Summary: History: Purchased new in February 2013, will replace in August 2015 with a non-Samsung model. Good: Sharp, bright screen, even at 1366x768. Reasonably fast performance. Reliable network connections, both wired and Wi-Fi. Reliable USB, HDMI connectivity. Comfortable keyboard and trackpad.
Well-designed, but some problems with wireless & bundled software

Summary: I purchased the Samsung NP540U3C-A01UB in December 2012, along with a very similar Sony SVT13126CXS Windows 8 touchscreen ultrabook. I first applied all available software updates from the vendor and from Microsoft, and then connected them wirelessly to an elevated ASUS RT-AC66U router and installed...
Summary: Yes, had this for a couple of months now, with no major problems but the screen sometime develops a display problem with a result that it locks up and I have to restart. Some peculiar circles appear on either the right or lefty hand sides of the display. I won't be recommending this to anyone.
Couldn't live without my Samsung Series 5 Ultra 530U3C
17 August 2013
Excerpt: Back last year I was just starting University and doing a Business Information Systems course which meant that I needed a laptop that would be able to cope will all the tasks that I was going to complete, and by this not just the first year of university but also the full length of the course.
Pros: Stylish, fast, lightweight , user - friendly, efficient
Summary: This is a great product... in the photos. In reality, I'm sorry, it just looks and feels "cheap". The first (huge) disappointment was with the SSD size. A 128Gb SSD isn't particularly big, but when I got it home and turned it on, Windows reported "55.8Gb free out of 91.6Gb". What ?!
Disappointing after a few months - semmed a good solid product

Summary: The review below was written after two month's use. The lid closing mechanism being too tight ended up being a major problem, the hinge became distorted and opened up a split between top and bottom casing. The repairers took a month to sort that, but the lid still doen't quite close properly.
