Summary: The Samsung RV511 doesn't blow our minds in terms of design or portability, but with a Core i3 processor, 6GB of RAM and a dedicated graphics card, this laptop packs great performance for the price.
Cons: Quite bulky; Design won't be to everyone's tastes.
Summary: The Samsung RV511 is a well specified laptop that provides plenty of the features and certainly most of the performance you can expect of any laptop under Â£1000. Build quality is also fairly solid, if a bit chunky and plasticky. Itâ€™s a well rounded package and certainly worth shortlisting if youâ€™re shopping for a no-frills laptop under Â£500.
Samsung RV511 Review: Great Features on a $500 Notebook
2 May 2011
Excerpt: The Samsung RV511 is a $500 mid range notebook which has a nice look and feel as well as a good collection of features for a $500 notebook. The retail price for the model we reviewed, the Samsung RV51 A01 is $549 at Best Buy, which may seem pricey given the use of last year’s Intel processor, but the overall package comes together nicely to provide a good value for the price.
Pros: Nice Looks, Good Battery Life, Feature Set (WiDi, My WiFi, WiMax and Fast Start), Price
Cons: Build of Notebook Base has a lot fo Flex, So So Webcam
Summary: All in all, the $549 Samsung RV511-A01 offers a great blend of features, style, and performance for its low price. The laptop has plenty of multitasking power and has enough staying power to work and play for nearly 5 hours on a charge. We also like the spacious keyboard and responsive touchpad, and WiDi is a nice bonus. While we wish it ran a little cooler on the bottom, those looking for an attractive yet affordable notebook for home use will really enjoy the RV511.
Pros: Attractive design, Comfortable keyboard and responsive touchpad, Good battery life, Fast boot time, Nice software bundle
Excerpt: The Samsung RV511 is a budget priced notebook running the first gen Intel Core i3 processor and sporting an eye catching silver look. The RV511 retails for around $550 and can be found on the shelf of your local Best Buy . It is not a powerhouse, but it does have a good collection of specs and a few extras that help justify the price. We will be posting a full review of the Samsung RV511 in a few weeks, but wanted to share our first impressions in this mini-review.
Summary: Goodbye Glare-Type Samsung is shying away from glare-type screens and has equipped this well-rounded office notebook with a matte (and still bright) display. Check out the "Display" section of the review to see how the matte screen differs from a glossy one.
Pros: Matte, Bright Display, Good Performance, Large Touchpad with Good Feedback, Low System Noise and Silent Mode, Useful Samsung Software, Recovery Disc, The matte LCD screen and the once again successful Silent Mode.
Cons: Warp-Prone Case, High-Gloss Surface between Keyboard Keys, Low Screen Contrast, Few Ports, Weak Graphics-Rendering, A sturdier case and non-reflective keyboard surface.
Conclusion: Хороший рабочий ноутбук Вы сможете приобрести за относительно небольшую стоимость. Понятно, что в таком случае пользователь сэкономит на качестве сборки и других недочетах. В частности, оставляет желать лучшего дисплей, который хоть и имеет приемлемые размеры, все же является сильно бликующим и недостаточно контрастным. Стоит обратить внимание на небольшие минусы в прочности корпуса.
