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: inexpensive, nice looking and very light weight including the charger; so my first impression was excellent no wireless or touchpad problem for me, in contrast to some comments I have seen, but found internet explorer a bit slow when pages have scripts (chrome worked faster) also saw some comments about 64G SSD being too small or not long lasting; keeping fingers crossed
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: The thing is sleek and is almost perfect. Its super fast and and Makes an apple look frumpy. The only problems are the two finger scroll rarely works. the volume requires you to hit the fn key and is right next to the wireless on off button, so you end up turning off wireless rather changing the volume some times. The unit looks rugged with is aluminum body but one tumble off my bed on to carpet cracked the screen, But Samsung Repaired it free. Over all Id buy it again.
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: My usage of laptop is very light (emailing, shopping, MS office from time to time, not even any social network sites that everybody uses)but I still consider battery life important AS THIS IS DESIGNED FOR PORTABLE USE. The advertisement of 7.5 hrs is misleading, in fact you get 4 hrs with wifi and bluetooth on. You need wifi for internet, and bluetooth personally for a mouse. Maybe if i turn off the wifi and bluethooth, maybe then 7.5 is true...??
