Summary: I bought it from Compusa and I thought it was Grate. But then i am having problems with the battery. I calles Samsung, i.was told the battery was to last 5 hours. It has never lasted 3 hours. They did there testing and replaced the battery. Then within a.week after getting it back, the DVD drive was not working and the batter was still not holding a charge for the 5 hours. Still only for 3 hours.
Don't play all music CDs. Samsung say they don't guarantee it can play
6 October 2011
Summary: I bought one of the samsung rf series recently (712) and it seems this unit can't play all music CDs. I took to samsung service twice and was informed the unit cant play all formats. When I informed customer care of this problem, with two job references showing this can't play all CDs, they simply told me is there is nothing they can't do because they don't guarantee to play all music formats, even though these CDs played on other laptops.
Summary: I purchased my laptop 1 week ago and when I run the laptop for a period of time it suddenly and unexpectedly scrambles the video and hangs. I have to reboot the machine and then it doesn't boot it says the system did not shutdown correctly and I must choose to start normally. It startes fine but shutsdown immediately. Hope the store I purchased this from is a good customer driven organization or that Samsung is and stands behind their prosucts.
