Summary: Beautiful and powerful laptop. I've had it for a couple of weeks now. It came with a few scratches on the front and a dead pixel.. Aside from that I am happy. I will update this review in a couple of months. UPDATE: I have been having a lot of problems with the wifi. It tends to loose connection every 20 minutes while all the other laptops in the house work fine. I've spoken to samsung rep and they haven't been much help.
Summary: It's always annoying to spend so much money on a notebook and after a few months have the paint flaking off the keyboard. The speakers also crackle a lot. When you spend extra for good sound quality you expect that the quality would be commensurate with the price. I hate to be the tester for Samsung because it’s expensive for me. Read the reviews and choose wisely. Just choose something else.
Summary: First off, Amazon was absolutely amazing when it came to the customer service involved in dealing with my laptop purchase of this Samsung Series 7 Gamer. Fast, helpful, and apologetic - They truly went above and beyond what any other online or big box retailer would have done to make me happy.They've made me a customer for life. Blu-ray isn't supported by Window Media Player or anything else Microsoft makes apparently, so you have to use some app to play the Blu-ray's.
Summary: On day 3 suddenly froze completely while browsing. Reboot to find a vertical line of stuck pixels. There is a 'screen fix' online but it will not run because it uses java (which is currently unapproved by DHS) Before these thing happened i was happy with the in-game fps and overall performance. EXCEPT i do not find 1080 a clear enough resolution on 17'', since 1080 is for televisions and I do not work so close to a tv screen as to a pc monitor.
Summary: This laptop is a lot of money for what it is, it also has system software problems and hardware glitches like the led keyboard lighting up by itself and on-board memory failure after eleven months It does run games very well but not up to the new generation console standards. There is bluray playback problem and stutters every couple of minutes, seen other people with this laptop have the same problem.
Summary: This laptop is a really nice looking piece of kit, and could be amazing. Unfortunately it's hard to tell as the power adapter failed after 10 minutes, and the half charged battery emptied in about half an hour leaving me with a very expensive paperweight. Amazon were quite helpful, though, passing on contact info for Samsung. So hopefully a replacement power brick will be on its way soon, when the computer will get the 5* rating it should deserve.
Summary: Die Begeisterung für die Geschwindigkeit des neuen Laptops (ich habe eine der Platten durch eine SSD ausgetauscht) ist schnell dem Ärger über die schlechte Verarbeitungsqualität gewichen. Nach knapp einer Woche (ich bin kein Gamer - sondern schreibe einfach viel) hat sich die ENTER-Taste gelöst.
