Summary: I like the Samsung notebooks because they come loaded with features that are upgrades with other companies. I have a slightly older Samsung notebook as well. The only thing I'm not as happy with is the touch mouse is not sensitive enough, maybe there is a setting I can change?
Summary: Had this laptop for over few years now, to be honest did not have any issues with it so far. The only problem encountered was that after few years the battery was knackered as it was not able to hold charge. I suppose it is just like wear and tear. Still going strong, I will recommend this to anyone, simple to use, the screen is quite decent sized.
Excerpt: About a year ago, I decided to update my laptop as my current laptop at the time was getting old and slow. There are many laptops to choose from nowadays and so picking the best one for your requirement can be difficult. The laptop which I chose was the Samsung R530. I bought it from the Samsung website for about £380, which is a reasonable price for laptops these days.
Pros: Everything you could want for a personal laptop
Summary: This is my first laptop. I had only ordinary computers before, but I am very satisfied with this Samsung R530 model. It has everything I need and the screen is big, so I watch movies on it a lot. Pics and colours are nice. Keyboard comfortable. The battery lasts for about 2-3 hours though. Overall I think it was a good choice.
The Samsung R530 laptop.The T4400 2.20 GHz VERSION
15 January 2011
Excerpt: Ive had my Samsung R530 now for coming on a year and i can say with all honesty its a nice bit of kit. The Samsung R530 has a Pentium Dual-Core processes at 2.20 GHz and has 3GBs of (RAM) which makes it pretty fast, even with several programs running at any one time.The hard drive has 500GBs of storage so download till your hearts content, theres enough space for 100s of moives and thousands of music albums.
Pros: Great to watch HD movies on, loads of storage,looks very sleek
Summary: The Samsung R530 is a good looking notebook, coloured red and silver and has an impressive 14 1/2 inch screen size. It is easily portable and its slim lines make it simple to carry or pack for travelling. Also its eight hour battery is adequate for the average day's requirements should there be no opportunity for connection during the day.
Summary: Brought this laptop from another vendor other than Amazon and have to say I am very impressed. A neat little laptop, widescreen allowing good viewing for films and gaming. Comes equipped with Microsoft Office, Macafee and a few other bits of useful software. Good battery life, usually at least 3 hours when doing basic tasks icnluding gaming. Only slight negative for me is the speakers. Not as loud as previous laptops I have had.
Summary: The only problem I've had with this laptop - and the reason I'm only giving it 4 stars - is removing the preloaded Macafee completely. It took three complete restores before I realised what the problem was, so if you do not want Macafee, make sure you know how to remove it completely. and save a lot of heartache! Otherwise it is brilliant.
Summary: A bit suprised this has some bad reviews!!, surely that could be down to router/router set up problems, not the product itself. This worked within 10 minutes setup on wireless after setup, and works in a house with three floors with the wireless router housed on the top floor! Please note the broadband and new router I am using is from the same firm, perhaps this "may" be the issue some people have experienced problems with; trying to use old routers that may be faulty...
