Summary: I agree with the other reviewer, it is difficult to type on this computer. But there are OH SO MANY REASONS NOT TO BUY THIS COMPUTER. WASTE OF MONEY! NIGHTMARE! Yes, all type disappears for no reason ALL THE TIME. Also, however, battery life: they told me 7 hours. Well, not really, but anyway, for however long (I think 5 at best) -- when it gets down to the last 7%, a dialog box starts FLASHING ON YOUR SCREEN "BATTERY LOW 7%" -- you plug the cord in, but THE FLASHING...
Summary: Warning! If you use your laptop to write letters, documents, personal files, or for any other purpose that involves constant use of the key board, do not buy ANY Samsung laptop. Your work will disappear right before your very eyes as if by magic and you will not be able to recover it. We have tried to reproduce the steps that lead to this infuriating mishap, but we have had zero success in figuring it out.
Summary: great product/price...a lot of bang for buck.reasonable price. fast(cpu), 64bit, 4gb rameasily upgradeable to 8gb ram, can't go wrong with this laptop. Samsung has great/strong reputation. I now see why. web research... alos.
Summary: Seriously? Your document was deleted and you blame it on the laptop? It sounds like the problem is either on the software side or the human side. Please write a review about the laptop,not about the mistakes or errors you happen to make.
Summary: As I was entering my first year of college, I knew that having a laptop would be much more handy and more convenient for a college student. I was kind of on a budget and the macbook was out of the question. I didn't want anything too big, since I bring this with me to school sometimes. As I was browsing around looking for the perfect size laptop, I cam across this one - the Samsung SF310. It has a unique shape to it.
Summary: This is no over-achieving laptop. It's good, but not great. Biggest downfall is the screen, which has a very restricted viewing angle. If you're anything but dead-straight, it's not sharp. Battery performance is about 2 hours on a full charge, even after upgrading to SSD drive. Touchpad is very finicky, forced to use a mouse.
Summary: I've never used a Samsung laptop but had no preconceived notions about the Samsung. I've used IBM/Lenovos, Dells, Sonys, Acers, Toshibas, Gateways - you name it and used most of the non-Apple laptops over the last 20 years in IT. I'm not going into which one I like best, but I can say definitively that this Samsung has the worst track pad & keyboard that I've ever used.
Summary: I bought this Notebook in January 2011. So far I have had to send it to Samsyng to have the CD/DVDR drive replaced and the battery now only literally lasts 10 minutes before it goes down to 8% and needs to be plugged into the mains. To cap it all my C drive completely konked out and I have had to have a new one (the guy said this can happen - tho it is not quite 2 years old and I am not a heavy user. The battery is internal and would cost £120 + £30 to replace.
Summary: I chose to buy this laptop because it was which's best buy, it is fast and effiecient but the I have a problem with the cursor which seems to have a mind of its own, jumping around from one conrner to another, and changing to different shapes and functions, may be the pad is to sensitive, I don't know but I had sony vio before and never had that problem with it.
