I don't understand why this laptop is getting neagative reviews. When i bought it, the reviews were all positive, nad i'm also pretty satisfied with my laptop. I don't understand why is it getting negative reviews. Mine is working awesome. Amazing battery back-up, and well the anti-reflective screen takes the lead. Well those who say this is crap for gaming, u must do some research on graphic card as well. Its graphic card is meant for hd movies and low end games so if u play high end games i will overheat because it is not built for that. So stop abusing Samsung and visit Nvidia website to check the graphic card info( Don't jst go on the memory of graphic card).
I got this laptop yesterday and find the good point in it---- WINDOWS SYSTEM RATING- 4.9(W32BIT) WINDOWS SYSTEM RATING- 5.2(W64BIT) NVIDIA OPTIMUS TECHNOLOGY WORK VERY GOOD DUAL GRAPHICS SUPPORT INTEL HD 4000 AND NVIDIA 610 BOTH AUTOMATIC SWITCHABLE BATTERY BACKUP 5.5 HRS (USE SAMSUNG ECO MODE) HARD DISK IS MORE THAN ENOUGH 1 SLOT IS FREE TO EXPAND RAM UP TO 32 GB (I UPGRADE IT 8 GB)USE UBANTU NO HEATING AFTER THE LONG USE OF 6 HOURS CONTINUOUSLY TOUCH PAD IS LITTLE INSENSITIVE (INCREASE ITS SENSITIVE BY SAMSUNG TOOL) FOR GAMING POINT - IT IS GOOD FOR MIDDLE RANGE GAMES NOT SUITABLE FOR HIGH END HD GAMES (THEY WORK ON LOW SETTING) OVER ALL I AM VERY SATISFY WITH THE PRODUCT
I bought this laptop [ Samsung NP300E5X-S01IN Laptop (3rd Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 750GB/ DOS/ 1GB Graph) ] from flipkart last month and am not satisfied with the overall experience except the service experience of quick delivery from flipkart. I am absolutely pissed off with the quality of finishing of this product that flipkart has shipped - there are unfinished plastic frame edges which can sharply harm the user and moreover no policy of exchanging the goods if you realize the user experience on just opening the product is not good enough as it shows on the picture on website or you want to exchange it for a higer configuration just because you feel this is not the product you were really looking for so many days and finally ordered. So essentially not a good customer experience as you feel dejected when you are stuck with such a product after spending so much of your hard earned money ?
I find it extremely funny that most manufacturers bundle a Nvidia 610m along with 3rd gen Intel chips. I can no longer stand to see how not so tech savy customers looking for a good gaming platform are being fooled into buying this laptop, just because it carries an nvidia badge. I'm gonna clear some misconceptions here. The integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics of the 3rd Gen Intel laptop chips are as a matter of fact, slightly FASTER than the low end 610m in most games! Go online and do some research on your own, check out the benchmarks, and you'll see the truth. They should have atleast put a medium power nvidia 630m along with this configuration, because the 610m is so pityfully weak. Not only are they WASTING battery power with the nonsense 610m, they are also making it run HOTTER, and making the lappy COSTLIER by atleast 1500rs!!! The only plus point about this laptop is that it has a powerful 3rd Gen i5 CPU. Good for business use, but HORRIBLE for gaming. For those considering a GAMING PC, you can get a MUCH MUCH better laptop deal with the HP G6-2010AX. Although the A8's CPU is a bit weaker than the i5 in single threaded software, it does well with modern mutli-threaded and OpenCL accelerated software. The spotlight however, is the Radeon 7670M graphics chip. It's equivalent to a nvidia 630m, and will very easily DESTROY both the 610m and the HD4000 graphics in gaming. Infact, even AMD's integrated Radeon 7640G is more powerful than both the 610m and Intel HD4000!!! And if you CrossFire the dual Radeon graphics, you've got yourself a graphics monster:) On top of that, for 2-3k cheaper, you get a 1TB harddisc, and 6GB's of RAM, and a nice 90W laptop charger:) Now that's what you call Value for money!! :D If your insitant on buying Samsung only, there's a good deal with the Samsung NP355V5C-S03IN, but that's a bit lower spec'ed that the HP one above because it has Win7 installed on it.
Definitely not for power users. the configuration is good but performance does not scale to the expectation. Very bad user experience. not caps lock indicator, slightly misplaced mouse pad is very problematic. Even the placement of keys is very bad.
Several reviews have focused on the backlight problem in samsung laptops with ubuntu or its variants. Solution: Install samsung tools ppa. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:voria/ppa via terminal. Remember to update with sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade via terminal. Install packages samsung-backlight, samsung-tools. Reboot system to have all changes applied. Enjoy ! The multi touch trackpad works like a charm on samsung laptops with Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10 and its variants. try it out !
the samsungs in the np series of laptops have cheap keyboards, poor quality casing and sad mouse buttons. everything seems beautiful and nice for the first 2 months or so, and then things start falling apart. my screen doesn't shut all the way down properly anymore, i never liked the keyboard response, and somehow its gotten worse, the mouse buttons have gotten lose. the bottom casing doesn't tighten all the way and is therefore squeaky in may places. it was great for 2 months, and now i wish i could just give it back and get my money so i could buy a good ole dell
i bought this laptop 2 month ago from flipkart. flipkart taken almost 15 days to deliver this by courier after taking many followup .. initially i was very happy with this laptop soon i realize that i bought very cheap quality laptop from samsung . within two month body color near to keyboard almost white & screen got scratched due to faulty design of this laptop. please beware from samsung product specially Laptop..
Good configuration as price concern, working fine with windows 7, processor rated 7.1 score but due to graphics performance score is low 5.0 Good Sound Quality Good touchpad (mouse) features Normal HD Display Good Battery Life between 3 to 3.5 hrs on standard uses 3 USB Port Ver 2.0 Good Keyboard but missing LED indicator Low web cam quality and do not include webcam software you have to install third party software. No DVD burning software included/available same you have to buy & install third party software. No USB 3.0 Port, No eSATA Port, And one more thing by default Bluetooth & Wi-Fi on always you have to close every time after booting. Overall it’s good for officially work as well as entertainment, most of the high configuration working fine with this laptop excluding HD Games & Graphic Apps.
I brought this product 2 days back (from a physical retail store in Mumbai), after much research in Flipkart for a decent i5, 3rd Gen lappy. Selected this for a variety of reasons (Pros): * Price - The price of the product is well within reach, and is one of the cheapest for an i5, 3rd Gen system. Price decrease is also because of the FreeDos, instead of Win7 * Performance - Intel's i5, ivy bridge processor (or 3rd Gen) works smooth!!! Gave me a performance rating of 4.9 in Win7(x64) Graphics & Media - with 1 gigs (DDR3, 1600Mhz) of Graphics (Nvidia Optimus), it is great. Yet to play any games or 1080 px movie though. Got decent front speakers, although the HD is not much noticeable. Display - Decent anti-reflective HD 15.6 screen with 1366*768 resolution. The brightness parameters is also good. Lowest is bright enough yet easy to the eye. Brightest is good for outdoors. Software package - Comes with Samsung's proprietary software CD, which contains s/w for drivers and graphic card for win7 (I dnt check if it was for FreeDos also) Keyboard - Full Keyboard with Num pad. Chiclets keyboard is well spaced. Getting used to it took me some time (as I am used to netbook's keypad). I somehow get a feeling that I have to type more towards the left side, to get the correct key while tying. Battery - One of the major reason for me to purchase it. Gives about 3-4 hours in normal use. Can be optimised using Samsung's s/w in Win7 or through BIOS. Weight - 2.3 kg for a 15.6 laptop (other than an Ultrabook) is quite remarkable. Feels light while working on laps and it doesn't heat up also. Cons OS - FreeDos is well free, but I dnt knw how to work on it... So uploaded Ubuntu (12.04, 32bit) and then dual booted it with Win7(64bit). Both works fine. It took me about 40 hours to load/reload both the OS, as I was facing initial problem, as the hard drive comes with FreeDos in FAT32 format, which I had to convert it to NTFS to upload Win7. My friend (computer geek) helped me overcome this problem. USB - comes only with 3 USB 2.0 ports, and no USB 3.0. Webcam - 0.3 is bit low. Keyboard - Chiclets keyboard makes the "click" sounds when typing fast. ISSUES: Identified * Screen flickering (could be s/w issue) - in Ubuntu, increasing/decreasing brightness through the Fn+F2 keys causes screen to flicker. In Win 7, the boot takes time, and screen becomes blank for few milliseconds after the home screen is shown. * Solved: * Touchpad - Few reviewers have experienced issues with the touchpad, but mine is fine. Initially I too found issue with the touchpad in Ubuntu, which I overcame by increasing the sensitivity of the touch. Touchpad in Win7 is working fine, after downloading the software. It will be wise to use a mouse, if the touchpad issue is not solved. Overall, a very good bargain product.
