Summary: Based on reviews I read of this product all around the internet, I was excited to get this computer for gaming. Unfortunately, almost a month into owning it, the screen went black and there was no help from Samsung other than for me to ship it back to them to repair. I guess I got a lemon because I know many people like their products. What I will say is how wonderful it was to be able to return it to Amazon and get a full refund with no problem. YAY Amazon!
Summary: I bought this refurbished and it was defective right out of the box, so much for Quality control, Samsung told me that the warranty had expired even though I just received it that day it was supposed to have an extended warranty . I'm not sure why this also cost me $29 to ship back. The item has been returned and I don't think I will buy a Samsung computer I have had better luck with HP over the years.
Broke after 2 months, just past the return date. Total disaster

Summary: The machine doesn't go more than 10 minutes without a blue screen of death. Nothing I did would fix the problem, and I've been working with PCs for 20 years. I've owned Dells, HPs, Toshibas, and built my own PCs from scratch. Then Samsung support was useless. They couldn't fix the problem. Their FIRST approach was to do a complete wipe on my hard drive. But their system to do this wipe didn't even work, it failed.
Summary: I have never written a product review or even so much as left feedback on a purchase before today. I spent 3 weeks doing research and "window" shopping online trying to find a new high end laptop. When I came across this deal for the np700g7c-t01us I was very excited! These specifications for $1199.99!?! Wow! And from Samsung no less!
Summary: Final Update 6: I have dropped the rating to a 1 star, while the specs may be nice, you can get better spec'ed laptops for about the same price. They will probably last you a lot longer. I've had 2 warranty repairs in the first year of ownership and now the reliability has taken another hit, where the graphics card likes to crash on occasion, even after installing different drivers and such.
Summary: After having this laptop for a couple of years things have started to go wrong like the blu ray started to stutter then would not read any blu ray or DVD disc's spoke to samsung and the said to update the drivers so I did and that didn't work.Then I lost a hard drive and lost a lot of video's but thats my own fault for not backing up ,then there's the screen burn which is a big white patch where you can still see my icons when not there ,the 3D was great apart from the...
Please tell me, how long are we people from Europe, going to buy plastic toys from Asia?

Summary: Please tell me, how long are we people from Europe, going to buy plastic toys from Asia? These computers are plastic toys thats all. Is the lcd display calibrated? does it have own self calibrating system? Fine go ahead and pay extra money for it if you want. What about laptop components like CPU and GPU? Is it possible to upgrade processor and graphics card? How much ram does it support?
Summary: Within a few days off the laptop arriving an intermittent screen fault occurred making the screen unreadable. Sent it back and a week or so later it was returned "repaired". A few days later the problem occurred again, another "repair" attempt later and same situation. Samsung refuse to replace or refund the item saying that it must undergo "a number of repair attempts" but flatly refuse to tell me how many.
Summary: Terrible machine - we've had months of problems with it - eg problems with power supply, broken keys, constant freezing, failures in restarting, shutting down, poor customer service etc. But our biggest issue is that the wireless is next to useless with it dropping out almost constantly whilst other machines I've been able to test against carry on working perfectly. There are many others experiencing the same sort of issue - [...
Had it two days and the keyboard letter "F" broke off!
24 October 2012
Summary: The laptop itself is good it plays most games with ease, however after 2 days of owning this laptop the letter "F" on the keyboard just came off, I tried to gently put the key back but the hooks on the bottom of the key are snapped, it's probably just bad luck, but this is just not good enough for the money I've paid,,,, now I'm going to have to wait about 50 years for a replacement no doubt, 29/10/2012 Update wow what can I say?
