Summary: My wife and I are not gamers, but just watch a lot of online movies, download music, and use this laptop for work. We love it. We ordered it silver, but i came in brown. This is great as it matches the coffee table we store it on. Great deal!
Summary: I have had my Samsung laptop for about 2 years now and it still works like new! I do agree with the other reviews that at times things can be laggy but it does not happen very often. The computer is great for school work and just surfing online.If you are looking for a reliable computer for school then this is it. However, it is a little heavy but you do have a nice size screen. All in all definitely depends on what you want to accomplish on your laptop.
Summary: I find these Samsung R540 machines to be of high quality I like the CD/DVD ROM it's made well. I never have any trouble with them. I actually own the JAO8US versions. Windows 7 is run in the machines I have purchased. These are worth the money. Make sure to get actually pictures from the seller top, bottom, both sides. Check the bottom for the build date. Make sure seller covers the numbers of the Window 7 key.
Summary: I purchased this strictly for college and a bit of Sims 3. Like others I have noticed the touch pad interferes with typing unless you are typing PROPERLY with your wrists off any surface, but none of us do that..... So I disabled it in the bios and purchased microsoft 3500. Other than that I have upgraded the SDD to run my games and programs better. I had an issue with it powering off when I used Sony Vegas 12. Eventually tried some canned air and it works great!
Summary: Today's Prayer Dear God, Thank You for Your Word; Your Word that is like honey to my lips and balm to my soul. I pray that the words that go forth out of my mouth shall be "pleasant words, like a honeycomb," to the people around me. I want my words to be like "sweetness to the soul and health to the bones," so that I may encourage others, build them up, and point them to You. If I may share just an inkling of the love and sweetness You give to me..
Excerpt: Bought this from Future Shop (Canada), for $499. I picked up the Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid HDD + SSD on sale at Best Buy for $129. A rocketfish external HDD kit was on sale for $39. I went through Battery Expert (Quebec, Canada), where they hooked me up with a 9 cell li-ion replacement for only...
Summary: I usually trust Samsung computers but not this one. Adult owned. Processor- The i3 is slow and cannot handle multiple processes at once. Memory- Programs constantly crash and computer freezes because of lack of memory. Camera- The built in webcamera is very laggy. Mousepad- very sensitive to moisture on fingers. Hard Drive- Decent size amount of storage. Compatibility- Does not like to play nice with anything I plug into it.
Summary: This computer had very little merit if any. The keyboard and touch pad were sticky and often data had to be retyped. It couldn't be registered because the model number and sub model number were not in the scroll down. I emailed them and was told to email all the info and scan the receipt and digitalize it. I couldn't do that because my scanner wouldn't work on this computer. I tried out the magnifier, didn't like it and then spent hours trying to delete it.
Summary: I am very pleased with the purchase of my Samsung laptop. It is an excellent computer for the price. I received this computer about a month ago and so far so good. Has all the necessary components if you're going to use it for basic things (i.e. internet, e-mail, word, etc.). Very fast, easy to navigate, love the wide screen and bigger keyboard, but still small and light enough to travel. Battery seems to last long. Overall, a great computer!
Summary: I just received the laptop and it is BROWN instead of Silver as it is stated on Amazon.com very clearly. I went through the reviews and guess what? I am not the only one who got the brown one instead of silver. Is it a joke of some sort or what? I needed to have it today and paid extra for a one day shipping to get it today. now I have to return and wait until I get my money back? This is not funny at all.
