Samsung Series 3 Chromebox Review


Google's svelte series of Chromebooks the last few years have served as both testing grounds for the still-nascent, cloud-based Chrome OS platform and as attractive secondary Web devices for consumers with money to burn. They may lack the versatility...

Extremely fast ; Plenty of ports ; Chrome OS is starting to mature

Derivative design ; Limited ecosystem ; Expensive compared to the competition

The Samsung Chromebox Series is a great computer for what it is. Google should be commended for developing an OS that can cater to most users’ everyday needs quickly and gracefully – provided they’re willing to truly invest in Google’s ecosystem.

Samsung Chromebook review


People laugh when I pull the old Samsung Series 5 Chromebook out of my bag. I almost feel the need to apologize for it when I turn it on: “Here's a $450 laptop that just browses the web. Sorry, everyone!” The big Chrome logo on the machine's lid is a...

Effortlessly light ; Cheap, even by Chromebook standards ; USB 3.0 and HDMI compatibility

Software still stuttery from time to time ; Creaky plastic ; Odd, inconvenient port placement

With ARM, has Google’s cloud-based laptop finally found its soulmate?

Samsung Series 3 Chromebox (XE300M22)


The Samsung Series 3 Chromebox is a nice alternative to a cheap nettop that you're buying just to get on the Web, especially for that relative of yours that "needs to get on the Facebook." If it came with HDMI in the box, it would be a home run hitter....

Speedy startup. Few Malware worries. Portable Chrome profile. Internal power supply

Apps are Web-based, requiring constant Internet connection. DisplayPort, but no HDMI. Keyboard and mouse are optional

New Samsung Chromebook & Chromebox review: Chrome OS grows up


2012 is the year of Chrome OS — or so we're told. When we spoke with Sundar Pichai, senior vice president of Chrome, he told us that this is the culmination of "a long, slow march" for Google's cloud-based operating system. One iteration was about...

Chrome OS is hugely improved ; Fast, reliable performance ; Lots of easily accessible ports

A little expensive ; Chrome OS still needs more features to be competitive ; Relatively useless without an internet connection

A new look and new hardware for Google's browser OS

Samsung Chromebox Series 3


More Info Chrome OS review (version 19) Samsung Series 5 550 review Google teases Samsung-built Chromebox, desktop version of Chrome OS What happens when you put a Chromebook in a box? You get a Chromebox, natch. Not content with launching its new...

Smorgasbord of ports and connectivity ; Extremely hackable little box ; Chrome OS has improved since launch

Cheap materials and build quality ; Expensive given what it can do right now

With the latest software update, Chrome OS is easier to use. Die-hard cloud aficionados might want to look at the new Chromebook, but the Chromebox is an extremely hackable little box.

Samsung Chromebox Series 3


Unless you've been actively avoiding technology coverage for the past few years, you've been inundated by references to "the cloud." The term can mean slightly different things depending on how and where it's being used, but essentially, it's the idea...

Quick boot time ; Plethora of ports ; Multi-monitor support

Expensive considering underlying hardware ; Hit-or-miss support for apps and USB devices

Samsung's $329 Chromebox might look like a Mac Mini, but its Google Chrome OS, while improved over previous versions, still has major limitations. It's okay as a second or third computer, but budget PCs offer better hardware and a full-blown OS.

I own 3 Chromebooks


I use the Chromebook & Chromebox devices for online financial transactions due to their enhanced resistance to password-stealing malware.

Fastest system I ever owned


After 15 years of cycling through 4 windows based computers, I decided to try something different. The fact that chrome OS is constantly updated and viral free was a strong factor in my decision (and the price). I looked at Mac mini but it was much...

Chromebox review


This the worst product I have ever purchased. The broswer pages are slow to load or don't load at all. My attempts to contact Google have received no response. I am at a loss. I have several computers and tablets that have no issues like the one I'm...

Perfect for use as an internal terminal!


I have been waiting for a product like this for a long time, maybe ten years. Now that the Cloud is all but a foregone conclusion as to the future of computers you will start to see computers trending in the way of the Google Chromebox from now on....
