Summary: After owning it for a little over a year (just after the warranty expired), the keyboard developed some issues. Even though there didn't appear to be anything wrong with the keyboard (no sticky keys), it responded as if the Shift key was held down, and the number pad stopped working also (even after hitting Number Lock). I also had some compatibility issues early on with Firefox but learned to stop doing the Samsung updates to fix that issue.
Summary: I personally have an intermediate/advanced amatuer kind of knowledge so I am not an expert expert if you will so this review will be based as is. In addition, this review is not based on a purchase thru Amazon.com. Build Quality: I have owned this laptop for 3 months as a replacement laptop, however I have to say this, I am not too impressed with the build quality, it feels flimsy and a bit too foamy in touch. It's not solid as a laptop should be like as of 2013.
Summary: I will be completely honest, I didn't come in expecting to fall in love with this laptop. I had an ultrabook that I loved, but the screen broke in airport security. There was a dent in the case so I was wary of simply replacing the screen and decided to just buy a new laptop. It was an emergency as I was leaving for a two month overseas business trip and needed something powerful to accompany me for a) processing such as solid works, photo shop, general engineering stuff...
Summary: I have one, my mate has two - all of them decent laptops BUT - ALL have frustrating issues with WiFi - has been a continuous problem for over a year. Limited connection or keeps losing connection to wifi network even with strong signals. Stalling lack of help from Samsung and intel regarding the offending intel centrino advanced-n 6235 - tried all the suggestions I can possibly find.
Summary: I have purchased many electronic and tech items from amazon in the past, and I was always very satisfied. This was not the case with this purchase. Firstly, the item was not as advertised. I chose this laptop specifically for its 8Gb RAM, when it actually has just 6. I tried to contact the seller about this, but it was evident that Amazon had a serious mixup with my order as in some places it shows one seller and a different seller in other places.
Summary: Bought because of the excellent specs for the price. It really is a great laptop but overheating issues ruin it for any serious gaming. From Far Cry 3 to SFIV it throttles down after 10 minutes due to overheating issues. Any simpler 2d game etc will run ok but then what's the point. I throttled down the CPU to 50% which seems to help. I believe the CPU and GPU share the same cooling facilities so if one goes up they both go up and the system can't take it.
Summary: Hallo, Habe mir den Samsung 550p5C vor einem halben Jahr mit dem Hinweis das ich ausschließlich nur damit zocken will gekauft und aus der Anfänglichen Euphorie ist eine echte Katerstimmung geworden. Design und Komponenten sind ein echter Volltreffer jedoch wenn man mit dem Laptop zocken will knickt er total ein (sogar bei URALT Spielen wie RTC od. Sims). Der Lüfter scheint viel zu klein zu sein und das Netzteil erreicht eine Temperatur die abartig ist..
Summary: É um aparelho que parece muito bom mas na verdade é muito lento. Comprei o produto a mais de trinta dias e ainda não consegui usa-lo adequadamente. Chamei um técnico que disse que das 6gb de memoria ele usa 5 gb só p/ ficar ligado. O windows 8 também vai ter que mudar muito, é muito burocrático, complicado, p/ desligar o aparelho é um verdadeiro sacrifício, coisa feita p/ adolescentes.
Cons: Сильно греется при тестах и в играх (95 гр.), хотя представлен как игровой. Проблема кроется в плохом инженерном решении тепло отведения. Samsung термопасты снова не пожалел: замазаны проц и видяха. Смена термопасты: Снизил нагрев до 92 гр. Проц и видяха расположенны очень близко друг к друг. Нагревают сами себя.
