Top Customer Reviews
i managed to remove the bloatware that comes with it, and it took me 20 minutes.once you remove the bloatware its all set to go.
recommend buying this laptop.
Edit: i contacted amazon and reported that the image on this listing is incorrect. Amazon replied back that there is no issue with the image (of the keyboard with numberpad) and that they think no change is needed. I usually have a high regard of amazon, but I am baffled with them refusing there is a issue with the image. Hope more people report this to get them to update the pictures of laptop on this page.
The Samsung NP300V4A-A03US has great features for its price and I like the practical yet comapct 14-inch display, which normally cost more than the standard 15.6 inch. However, the screen color tone has a tint of pin and purple especially on white, light blue and light gray background. Adjusting the color in Intel settings and using color calibration did not remove the pink-purplish problem.
It was quite difficult to get on a Chat with the Samsung Tech Support and I finally got through after waiting for 40 minutes. Samsung support agents are also not friendly. Compared with Sony, I was able to chat or speak to a representative almost immediately each time I contacted them with questions, and Sony's service is friendly and fast.
I went to Best Buy to check out the screens of other Samsung notebooks and noticed a display laptop, also a Samsung 14-inch has the same annoying pink-purple color tone. All the other brands: Sony, Toshiba, Dell, Asus, etc. in the store all have normal screen colors, and not pink like the Samsung.
Conclusion : by the specifications, this laptop is best in class and price. But in the real world, it's not as fast as expected. There should be a reason for this!
I think Amazon.com or Samsung should do something about it and contact customers with a solution.
Overall - definitely 5 stars from me...
1. Core I5 2.3 GHz processor and 6GB of RAM make it a fast and responsive laptop.
2. No bloatware
3. Monitor is sharp and responsive
4. Keyboard is comfortable, keys are well spaced and has the feel of a regular keyboard
5. Computer stays cool
6. The computer wakes up from sleep mode in seconds
Battery life is less than I anticipated 3 to 4 hours max
I've been buying stuff since 2009 and I work in the IT area since 2007.
the laptop is perfect for the whole family, from surfing the internet to run graphical applications (despite not having a graphics card). Not as heavy as they have said in other reviews, and the battery life is high (7 hours on average). Great sound and the screen looks great.
Some cons that might make known are:
the quality or resolution of the webcam is not the best. It could be coming from Samsung.
The touchpad is very sensitive.
Too many applications from Samsung (I uninstalled most of them).
I hope these comments can serve to make an informed purchase decision.
