As to start out this laptop appears good in numerous ways. For the casual gamer or replacement of older laptops this is a definite yes. Upon receiving and using it here are the first impressions.

Keyboard
This is a typical laptop keyboard with a numeric keypad on the right side. I was used to no numeric keypad on former laptop but it is a nice addition. If you are not used to an extra keypad it will take a little adjustment on getting used to it when typing but no big deal in my book. Some people like illuminated keys on the keyboard but this one is not. I am in no need of illuminated keys so it fits my uses.

Screen
The screen is 15.6 and is HD. To my eyes an HD to a non HD is not a big deal. For people who want the most super clear screen this will probably work. For the causal gamer, college student, or basic video watcher this is great. If you examine the picture the screen is held up by two hinges. These are sturdy but the screen appears to bounce a little bit at times. If you want the screen to remain totally solid with the rest of the computer while moving around it will not. It bounces a little with every movement but if you sit still and it is on your lap then it is not a problem. If it is on a table it doesn't bounce because the surface stays still.

Mousepad
The mousepad is one of the better ones in my opinion. On some samsung i7s the mousepad is nothing but a huge pad with no left or right click separated. This is part of the 5 series and the mouse buttons are separate from the pad itself. For people with bigger hands it may be annoying due to that the pad is closer to the keys but if you are already used to a mousepad close to the keys no big deal. The mousepad is sensitive but takes some time getting used to.

Love this laptop. 3rd gen i7 and GeForce 630m video card are great for my needs. For the small amount of gaming that I do, it looks great. No problems multi tasking, watching videos, and playing music.

I will be completely honest, I didn't come in expecting to fall in love with this laptop. I had an ultrabook that I loved, but the screen broke in airport security. There was a dent in the case so I was wary of simply replacing the screen and decided to just buy a new laptop. It was an emergency as I was leaving for a two month overseas business trip and needed something powerful to accompany me for a) processing such as solid works, photo shop, general engineering stuff and b) video games.

So, what do I like about this laptop?

The case is more robust than the ultrabook that I killed.
The keyboard feels nice; the mechanical touch is good and sensitive but not overly stiff, and the key placement is wide but intuitive.
I got an I7 with a dedicated graphics card for <$1k. That's about it.

What do I hate about this laptop?
Initially:
-hard drive is slow. Even with the slimming start up of windows 8, booting takes forever. I am thinking about buying an SSD for this laptop, but why sink more money into something I hate. Want to open a folder full of images? Have fun killing time for the next minute and a half.
-screen resolution is awful. I'm not obsessed with aesthetics and i should have checked this beforehand, but seriously, 1366x768? Are you kidding me? You can *see* the pixels even under extremely low contrast conditions. It drives me insane.
-The screen, where it mechanically attaches to the base, isn't stable enough. It does that stupid wiggle thing when you type.

As I have grown more familiar with it:
- The USBs are tight - too tight. II did not know it was possible to make it more obnoxious to insert a USB, and yet Samsung found it.
- The charging cord is loose.

It is very fast, and I think the price is acceptable. The battery doesn't seem to be very powerful though. So if you don't mind carrying the adapter all the time, this could be a good deal~

This ultrabook works fine for me; fast, smart, light and nimble. Not 100% sure about Windows 8, but it's always hard to be sure about Windows OSs.

I bought this for my parents to use thinking it would be a decent laptop given the quality of other Samsung products I've purchased in the past. But I'm rather disappointed.

It does everything a laptop should do and does them well, however, the screen is substandard quality and the hinges are hardly hinges. The screen should be on an entry-level budget laptop, not the S5, and the hinges have so much play in them that it makes the laptop difficult to use in all but the most still situations. Fix both of those and it's a good laptop. Otherwise it's just meh...

By Shannon M. on February 22, 2014
I have had this laptop for over six months now and I absolutely love it. It has a few cons, of course, but it general it is an exceptional device from what I have come to know as an exceptional company.
Keyboard is perfect. After using it, I basically hate all other keyboards I use.
Screen is just the way I like it - matte and non-reflective. I can't stand all the reflections that other glossy screens give you.
Speakers are great - massive upgrade to the crappy Asus speakers I used to have to deal with.
Machine is generally fast and responsive. I browse without a problem and I game on this laptop without issue. Rarely has a problem multitasking or doing anything I request of it.
If I had to report a grievance, I would say that the start up time is quite slow. It takes a good 2-3 minutes from cracking it open for it to start moving at full speed again. However, this really has never been a big issue for me, and I don't understand why anyone would make a fuss about it.
Anyway, I have had a great experience thus far with this laptop, and it works as good right now as it did the day I opened it. I would recommend it to anyone.
