Awesome Notebook, Mediocre Wi-Fi
6 August 2013
Summary: The internal wifi performance is acceptable in many situations. However, the wifi performance plummets when there are obstructions blocking the signal. The wifi on other laptops performed much better in the same challenging scenarios. I was willing to accept this flaw because the rest of the computer was perfect for me. I wanted the portability of an iPad with all the capabilities of a laptop.
Summary: Overall impressions: Eh, it's decent. Thickness, battery, screen, heat, all leave areas for improvement (they're alright, 7-8/10). Speakers are surprisingly loud & nice, as is the SSD. Keyboard, ports, build quality are all adequate. Must use two hands to open the lid. The wifi was downright embarrassing however. Initially the laptop was seeing ~0.67-1.0Mbps download and ~0.50Mbps upload (speedtest).
Summary: This was one of my best pruchase from Samsung. The laptop is awesome. It is very fast, reliable, vivid, and handy. I was worried that some people mentioned wifi problem, but I have none. I use it dailly bases from home to school. I have sed it almost 6 month, and it has been working so great. I am happy I bought this one!
Summary: I'm a heavy computer user. When I wanted to buy this laptop I saw the bad reviews about WiFi so when I ordered this laptop I ordered an external wifi adapter in case! When I received this laptop every thing was good. Its about 2 months and wifi was perfect so far.
Summary: This ultra-book ultra-passed all my expectations about it! The i3 processor is good enough to deal with all basic work needs. The size and weight are the best of it. It's possible to carry everywhere with comfort. The display has a good resolution, much better than an ordinary net-book. The price is just, if you compare with its features.
Summary: i am using it to write this review, there is noticeable scratch on right side of the lid, since it was a used so i let it go. over all the product working fine, but the hard drive is too little, bringing extra hard drive is a hassle.
Summary: This piece of shh is one of the worst laptops i have ever had, samsung is such a trashy brand, i swear to god i will never ever buy anything from samsung again and i was one of those who paid USD 1200 bucks for this garbage, first of all, the wifi reception is soooo soo bad, the plastic keyboard grid lifted up after some use, and now the touchpad-trackpad stop working and it looks like it is not a software issue, it is a hardware problem now i have to use an external...
Summary: I think there are some serious quality issues with this version of the Samsung device. The packaging I received seemed to already have been opened at one point, so I think my device may have already been returned once, fixed, and resold. Anyway, after one week of use the SSD drive failed and everything on it was lost. Yeah, should have been backing up everyday I guess, but I usually back up every week and the machine didn't even last that long.
Summary: The stats listed for this item are not false. This is one of the few 11.6 inch laptops that was manufactured with a 128 GB SSD drive, and 4GB of ram. I thought it was a typo, and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was exactly as was listed. The only disappointment, is that this came with the faulty wifi card that's usually associated with the Series 9. I purchased an Intel Centrino combination bluetooth and wifi card for this and replaced it right away.
Summary: I got this laptop thinking it would be comparable, or even replace my MacBook Air, and I was wrong. It didn't even power up. I charged the laptop for 1hr, 2hrs, and then overnight, and still would not power on. If it did power on, I think Samsung really needs to improve on the power on button, it is pretty hard to get a feedback from the power button. Since this is a DOA until, that is all I can say about it.
