Excellent keyboard feel. Excellent non-glare screen. In fact for me it has been outstanding in almost every way and is used all day every day. I liked the first one enough that I bought my wife one to replace her older Toshiba. For my use it has only two shortcomings which are relatively minor, or perhaps non-existent for someone else: The lid has no easy place to get hold of to start opening the computer.
The second problem I have is that the touch pad seems ultra sensitive and I have difficulty typing emails because my palm gets close to it and there goes the cursor somewhere else. However I use a trackball and this resolves the problem nicely. I suspect that those who are accustomed to using touch-pads might not experience my problem. My wife likes the touch-pad and apparently has no problem with it.
I run both linux and windows on it and they both run flawlessly. As they say, you get what you pay for. This is a nice sized unit with good power and capabilities. It does want me to reboot at least once a week and seems to fail to clear memory quickly so eventually it does bog down. The only other issue I have had is with the screen color calibration on a second monitor. After a reboot it defaults to the oversaturated settings and requires a new recalibration. It allows a comparison between the old cal and new so it remembers there was an old calibration but doesn't allow you to load that on reboot.
I use this laptop for school purposes and also for gaming. It probably couldn't run Crysis 3 on even low settings, but for less demanding games and such it does great.
I've played Amnesia and Portal 2 on this, and it looked fine. The laptop is also pretty quiet (as in the fan isn't that loud). There weren't any major problems with performance in that area. The main problem with this laptop (and the reason why I gave it a lower review) is because of it's build quality.
The externals are 100% plastic. The back of the screen is not metal at all, just textured plastic in which the paint chips fairly easily. I've never dropped this laptop before, but there are still several cracks on it. The screen also gets really wobbly after a while.
The usb ports also seem loose. This laptop would have been awesome if it weren't made out of a thin, flimsy plastic. Bruker software. Purchased this laptop from major retailer 4 months ago and it has been working great, no issues whatsoever.
The screen is nice and bright and its moderately light weight. Hook up was smooth and customer service was great when i had any questions. And the best part.customer service is in the US and not some foreign country like India. Sad to say, but when i am buying electronic products today if the customer service is located internationally I hesistate to buy. The processor is fast and keeps up with my husband's laptop which has the i5 processor. Samsung has created a very good, but cost effective laptop for the every day man/womans' budget.thank you Samsung. The biggest problem I had with this system was finding a Linux distribution that worked with the graphics chip.
Luxor 1 game free download full version. I tried Linux Mint (based on Michael Scarn's review), CentOS 6, and Fedora 16, before I finally tried Fedora 17 Beta. F17 Beta (I used the KDE Live CD) works like a champ.
I've never been worried about the 'Beta' status with Fedora releases and have never had any major problems with them. This system boots with the open source Radeon graphics driver included with the distribution. I don't really need the accelerated 3D graphics so I'm not going to worry about when or if that will be available for this chipset. As far as I can tell, everything is working as advertised. The screen is crisp and clear, Bluetooth and wireless are recognized (I haven't tested them yet but according to Michael Scarn's review they work well). I actually like the keyboard. All in all, a fine system on which to run Linux.
I bought this, not particularly enthralled with laptops, in early December 2011 because I was going to be on the road more than usual. It delivered everything I needed then. This weekend I was playing a DVD routed to the television via HDMI and about three quarters of the way through it made a popping sound and the picture went blank.
All other components seem to be running fine. I called their customer service today and got a pleasant customer service person and a case number. My low rating will go much higher if the repair is done quickly and to my satisfaction. I have read some customer service reviews about Samsung and they don't sound good. Pros: It does what I want it to. Microsoft Office, Email, Youtube, minor gaming. The instant on feature is quite nice, and the non-glare screen large enough and clear enough to read e-books in comfort.
