Summary: From what I have read online, other people are having the issue of a display the dims and brightens at random and even though all the addaptive display items have been disabled and the machine is on AC power, ithe dimming continues.
Earlier version of same computer--problems galore!

Summary: I'm torn. I want to love this product. When it works, it's beautiful. But I've gone through 4 of these laptops in less than 1 year. The first one I had to return after one day because the FN keys were not working.
Summary: Samsung disappointment. It was almost the most expensive laptop in the store. Hard drive failed after 6 months. I was in urgent situation and could not exercise Sumsung's manufacturer warranty, because I needed functional laptop in one day. I had to repair it locally and pay for it.
Summary: I have used many brand new PC's in the last year including a samsung series 9, but I thought given the price this series 7 would be worth it. I was wrong. My issues are: 1. Windows/Samsung software issues. When first received, I couldn't change the brightness level on my computer.
Summary: I briefly owned this laptop, having bought it from a Microsoft Store in Bellevue, WA. I returned it the day after I bought it, having used it for a good 3 hours before giving up. First, let's get the good stuff out of the way: the keyboard felt great, and build quality was good.
usb 3.0 ports don't work and bad mouse pad with horrible customer service.

Summary: So, I bought this computer for work purposes back in April 2012. Overall, the computer works fine with the exception of a few MAJOR issues. First thing that went wrong, the mouse pad. Jumps around when something is plugged into the usb ports, like a cell phone. Still happens, never been resolved.
Summary: I've had this laptop for about 4 months, and just finished having to re image the HD for the 6th time. Not sure why doesn't seem to be linked to any specific activity or application. I could be playing AoC or reading wikipedia. Every few weeks it just freezes and then it needs to restore from image.
Pros: Good Memory video and cpu speed
Cons: Air Flow is poor with almost no intakes on the case and he exhaust venting onto the bottom of the monitor. Causes the case and the display to run hot. hard disk Crashes every couple of weeks as well.
Summary: Pros: Fast Sexy Battery lasts and lasts Screen is matte and nice(when viewed in the right angle) Cons: Space bar barely works.(almost unusable) Screen is getting keyboard marks on it after 2 months(my 6 year old sony still has no marks) Screen viewing angle is horrible.
Summary: I was very excited with the purchase of the Samsung Series 7 NP700Z5A-S0AUS 15.6-Inch Laptop. I have Samsung monitors and HDTV'S and have always been very satisfied with the quality and service from the company.
Summary: Pros: Sleek, lightweight, beautiful. Nice keyboard backlight settings, nice keyboard feel, nice screen. Would be the perfect laptop for me except for the graphics card issues (see cons). Cons: Design flaw with switchable graphics.
