One problem I had was that the Fn+Function keys that control the brightness, volume etc did not work. I contact Samsung support and they send me a zip file with Easy Display Manager app to install and this fixed the problem. Kind of strange that it did not come with the original software but since other people did not complain about it I presume it is a one off (my computer was refurbished with 11 months old production date so it may be an early product).
I would probably drop a star due to the function key issue but since Samsung support was just great, I am going to give it full 5 stars. I contacted Samsung support on the online chat, available 24x7. They were very professional and patient and did not even ask for serial number, email address, etc, just dived in directly and solved the problem.
Overall its is a very good product with very good value. Not the most portable one (compare with MacBook air and various Windows Ultrabooks) but so far it works great for me.
Thin, but solid design with nice display
Windows 7 experience index (scale of 1 to 7.9) of 6 or above (Processor: 6.4), other than Graphics (4.6)
Quiet, rarely hear any fan sound. It doesn't get heated up like my other Dell, HP or Toshiba laptops.
Battery life is very good, averaging 6 hours. Nice Keyboard (wish it had backlit keys, but only a wish for this price range:))
No major issues so far; was trying to install Logitech Harmony universal remote sw, had issues, but suspect it's Logitech sw issue.
Overall, solid laptop for under $500 (Paid $479 with $50 amazon gift card).
* no keyboard flex at all. I did notice the larger model on display at bestbuy did have a bit of flex. But not this guy.
* male plug for the power is on the cable side as opposed to the laptop side. I don't know how so many manufacturers still get this wrong and put the male power plug on the laptop side. What if it were to actually get damaged and bend? It does happen, and when it does, it would be cheaper to replace the power cable rather than the power receptacle on the laptop. My thinkpad and just about all the other higher end laptops are set up that way. I've noticed many Asus laptops are setup the wrong way.
* Bluetooth v3. Using it all the time.
* No number keypad. Manufacturers are listening to the complaints from some buyers about the numberpad as a criteria for purchase while the many of us are happy the way it is. My 17 Macbook Pro does not have a number pad if that says for something. Number pads are annoying and off centers the keyboard along with the track pad. It's awkward typing on a keyboard with the laptop on your lap and you can't balance it correctly because you're shifted left. Thes Samsung does not have the number pad.
* Very light. Samsung keeps the laptop light by using mostly plastic parts but it fits and finishes really nice as opposed to Toshiba and HP.
* clean keyboard layout. Function key lock to use the alternative keys to control volume, etc.
* responsive keyboard. The keys feel tactile and the response is really great for a laptop in this price range.Read more ›
