Review Samsung Series 3 300E5C Notebook

 

Price champion? The 15.6-inch Samsung 300E5C should appeal to price-conscious customers. With its matte screen it is mostly suitable for long-term private or professional use. In terms of performance we have a Core i3-2310M CPU, an integrated Graphics...

Great Purchase

 

Great purchase, works well, battery life is solid, display is great. I would definitely recommend

Samsung Core i5 notebook

 

Fast, long battery life and fast boot time. Good for what student use except for one problem

Very Fragile screen!!! Be very careful with this, do not open by the edge and put NOTHING on top of the computer!! Be very careful putting in book bag especially if it might hit anything

Memory Issues on Arrival

 

n/a

This laptop arrived with constant blue screen errors referencing bad memory. I had to almost immediately ship the laptop to Samsung's repair center at my cost, with servicing to take up to two weeks

Good machine so far

 

Not a big gamer, so can't really comment on the graphics, but they work fine for all my needs so far.

I love the screen. Beautiful non-reflective matt ; Linux friendly, installed Ubuntu 12.04, everything worked out of the box ; It's fast. Downloaded emacs 24.x source, compiled faster than I could have imagined ; feels sturdy, time will tell

Like others, I would like to have USB 3 ; Built in speakers are a joke, but I haven't found a laptop yet in which they weren't

Good laptop

 

Very nice computer that performs well. The only thing that I would change are the speakers. Right out of the box the speakers sound like they are already blown. But no worries just plug some headphones in and it fixes the problem. Also I got a free...

Excellent for its price point

 

Right out of the box I installed an Intel 330 120gb ssd which makes the notebook scream. After posting the boot time is literally seconds to get to the desktop. I took the 750gb hard drive and stuck it in an external enclosure since I needed an...

Fast hyper threaded ivy bridge processor ; Long lasting battery - could get 5+ hours depending on what you do ; Matte Screen ; Full size keyboard ; Very good built in wifi - I get pings nearly identical to my desktop ; Surprisingly good integrated...

Wish the screen was higher res but it's not bad at all considering the screen size ; Built in speakers aren't that great, distort a bit at louder volumes
