ok to own but i would look for another brand on the same price range
6 February 2014
Excerpt: ... 12 months after buying, i had to replace the hard drive. ok for watching live streaming although will depend on broadband speed, running word processors, picture editing but struggles with video editing. it's a celeron processor so as expected. i hate the mousepad, cursor jumps and scrolls the screen unnecessarily. fan and hard drive (western digital) is pretty quiet. the back of the screen is glossy, you can happily leave your fingerprints for the CSI.
Summary: Had I researched it more then I would not have purchased it in the first place. No IEEE1394 interface or HDMI. I suppose for the price then it's not too bad Was terribly slow but much improved with Win 8.
Summary: I didnt buy this laptop a family friend bought it as part of mobile contract through 3 mobile & never used it so I got it. I only use this laptop for personal use to scour the internet, save photos & watch some videos etc & for that its excellent. The only thing that annoys me is the lack of Bluetooth.
Pros: stylish. great keyboard
Cons: no bluetooth & at times the processor is slow
Summary: Though it's a cheap and a nice laptop to handle it there are a few things that aren't that nice. The processor is running too slow sometimes and there isn't a HDMI cable. But since I installed Windows 8 the laptop is running faster and the screen still stays very bright. Unfortunaly it's still troubling by 3D-images or some games. The processor scores a 3.6 which is, for the most games, too low to play things like CoD or something like that.
Excerpt: i bought this laptop of ebay since m,y other one broke i think its really easy to use and its very highspeed and doesnt crash it also lets you download alot of things which is very useful i find the mouse pad a bit hard to use though because its a bit small but overall its very good the screen picture is also cvery clear and not blurry so its easy to use and the screens a reasonable size to and it ha a long lasting battery whch is handy if your out and on it
Summary: In general very pleased with the build and performance of this laptop. The general specification was what encouraged me to purchase this model, in particular the full keyboard was looked upon as a plus, with no fiddling required for number entry in Excel. However the screen format is a big disappointment, the Toshiba which my wife uses is also a 15.6 inch screen, but in the Samsung the screen is broader, but about 1 inch less in height.
Summary: I bought this Laptop for my daughter for Christmas unfortunately on Christmas day we lost count of the times this machine turned itself off. Also on a couple of occasions the screen went black and different colours were flashing on the screen. As you can imagine she was very disappointed with what was a much anticipated Christmas gift. We have now sent this back to Amazon and are waiting for a refund.
