  • Summary: I like that it has a matte screen - not a lot of laptops do anymore. The hard drive crashed after about a year.

  • Summary: We bought 3 of these, and the cd/dvd rom drive died in two of them after about 18 months. Otherwise a good machine.

Good internals, terrible case

Doran Massey, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: This computer offers good performance for the price. But the case is weak around the trackpad making it almost unusable as a laptop. If it's on a desk/table and you have a lot of patience (don't mind re-clicking over & over to get it right) you can work very slowly. I needed it for realtime performance and it was completely useless. I gave this to my kids for a stay-at-home pc & got a macbook pro.

Decent laptop for the price

Lazarus, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: Description of this laptop read "like new". The laptop did not meet this description, as when I took it out of the box I noticed a number of problems. First many of the keys on the keyboard were worn out from extended use. Second, there was an internal screen tear that, while hardly noticeable, still is doesn't fit the like new description. Don't get me started on the ghastly track pad, lets just say that i'm glad the seller included a wireless mouse.

Not what I had hoped

james r prudent, Amazon
7 June 2013
  • Summary: This computer has some issues. The track pad is horrible. Sometimes it works . Sometimes it makes the computer useless. The only way to get it working is to use an external keyboard or reboot. The HDMI is nice but should have explained what is needed to add another monitor - the cable business is complicated. In fact at the price they should have thrown in a cable. It bogs down when i have multiple programs on so not much of an improvement over my last Dell.

Excellent laptop- if you don't need to close the lid.

LouisKarol, Amazon

  • Summary: Good: Heat management Battery features Touchscreen Overall Features Bad: Customer Support (chat agent tried to get me to alt+f4 out of my support session) Custom power features ("fast start" removes the ability to close the lid and leave the laptop on) Newer models available exclusively from Best Buy NP780Z5E

don't buy if you want 16gb of ram

RS "muf", Amazon

  • Summary: I have bought this item, but for my surprise it doesn't allow 16gb of ram. There's NO where on the internet saying that it doesn't support though. The manuals are hard to understand too.

I Get My Work Done

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 March 2013
  • Summary: First of all, I purchased this as a refurbished item, which is essentially in new condition. I was could not choose between this laptop and the HP Envy. I decided to purchase the Samsung Series 7 because of the graphics card mainly. I needed a laptop to travel with me between home, work, and school. Naturally, I wanted a 17-inch, but I knew travelling with it was not ideal.

Almost very good...

Treb Orf, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: The Samsung series 8 NP700Z5C-S01US came well packaged. It felt sturdy, was relatively lightwight and looked good out of the box. I tried to like it, I really did, but finally returned it for two main reasons * As others have mentioned the touchpad is very erratic, going from being over sensitive to not responding at all. I updated the driver software, this didn't help.

Not a good deal for the money

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this computer after my HP crashed. I generally like Korean products and when the geek squad said this is our top of the line I figured it was time for an upgrade. But after 3 months I can honestly say this is one of the worst computers ever. The touch pad is a pain and constantly highlighted and jumped from window to window, page to page until I disabled it.
