Samsung Series 3 Chromebox Review


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,...

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

This Chromebook performed like a Chromebook

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 review:


I can think of a few customers who might consider the attractive, Google Chrome OS-powered Samsung Chromebox desktop. Schools, libraries, Internet cafes, even a parent shopping for a child's first computer might reasonably look into this $329 PC and...

The Samsung Chromebox offers an attractive, low-risk entry point to the experimental world of Google's Chrome OS.

Absent features and occasional software and hardware incompatibilities mar a supposedly simple user experience.

The attractive, fairly priced Samsung Chromebox desktop turns Google's Web-based Chrome OS into a not entirely unreasonable option for certain low-cost PC shoppers.

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 Review and Ratings


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.

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

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

Speaking of mice, things were hit-or-miss with peripherals as well. Our Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse worked when we first plugged it in, but the central touch strip didn't work for scrolling. Eventually we noticed a notification in the lower-right...

1-super fast boot up.

The Chromebox is a secret that those wanting to buy a PC should know about!

Samsung Chromebox Series 3


I have now got my Samsung Chromebox 3 plus a Displayport male to HDMI male cable and a Logitech K400 wireless keyboard with trackpad bought on Amazon, plugged it into my HDTV and I am really pleased with the purchase. It is the perfect surf TV / HTPC,...

Zero Maintenance, fast, fuss free and cannot be messed up, good value - perfect for a home PC or second PC device. It is the perfect Surf TV device to plug into your HDTV.

Have to buy video cables and keyboard separately, but this allows you to buy exactly what you need.

"Ideal for secure online banking"


Anyone who follows %s will notice a pattern of many small businesses getting robbed of many tens of thousands of dollars; mostly because someone downloaded malware into the pc that is used to login to their bank accounts. The advice is to reserve 1 pc...

No operating system so no way to install malware.

Only Cons if you are expecting a pc environment.
