  • Summary: When the computer works, it works well. Unfortunately overheating can be a problem (see below). They give you space to install a second hard drive (which I did) and you can also put two 8 GB sticks of ram in the machine for a total of 16 GB RAM if you have upgraded to Windows 7 - 64 bit (I use Ultimate, I think 64 bit Home edition only allows you to use 8 gb).
  • Pros: Huge Display, extra bay for 2nd hard drive, Sleek Design (compared to other 17 inch laptops), powerful, Can be upgraded to 16 GB ram (if you buy 64 bit Windows)
  • Cons: Overheating

  • Summary: I made an account on this website just to review this stupid laptop. Everything that is great about this laptop is ruined by Samsung being sloppy. The laptop has major issues - it has the ability to play powerful games with great graphics, but overheats if played for more than about 30 minutes! It also overheats if more than 10 tabs are open in a web browser. I also had to send the laptop to Samsung to be repaired when the charger port broke!
  • Pros: Design, memory, graphics.
  • Cons: Over heats, breaks too easy.

  • Excerpt: "...went dead and on contacting Samsung via email (using my desktop) was told that it was a common known problem. This statement was later denied by Samsung. After paying 230euros to return it I had my money back and decided to opt for a company without known problems that hadn't been fixed. I made several phone calls all over between Greece and UK but the international warranty is not in my opinion very good. If you live abroad (outside the UK) be ...
  • Pros: great laptop when working !
  • Cons: poor aftersales

  • Excerpt: "...gadgets: I was attracted to the Samsung R series laptops because of their high specifications and their relatively affordable price compared to other brands with the similar specifications. Now at first sight it looks pretty sleek and I always prefer a glossy Black finish. Now this is a 17inch laptop and is pretty big compared to others. This can be an important decision to make and if you prefer a more portable laptop a 15.4 inch would be fine ...
  • Pros: Good processor,massive memory, wide display
  • Cons: poor speakers, no Blu ray

  • Conclusion: ноут просто зверь – любая игра просто летает, для работы вообще слов нет – зверь просто. Монитор шикарный, яркий, большой, разрешение отличное, по бокам просматривается отлично. Работать удобно – клава полноформатная. Процессор отличный, мощный, производительность обалденная. Кстати, висту убивать совсем не обязательно, вообще не напрягает, хотя драйверы под ХР есть.

  • Conclusion: кроме увсего хорошего вышесказанного есть еще недостатки – например, привод слабенький, многие диски не может прочитать, и залапывается пластик. Производительность очень высокая. Кстати, ХР не рекомендую – производительность только падает, Виста лучше в данном случае.

  • Conclusion: вообще никаких минусов (разве для кого-то минусом будет то, что глянцевый пластик мажется). Но зато работает классно, видео-карта супер, процесор мощный. Соотношение цена\прозводительнос ть/марка отличное.
