Review Samsung RF511 Notebook

 

Quad all-rounder. Samsung responds to the high demand on the prev

High quality materials; Matt, bright display; BluRay & USB 3.0; BluRay player; Input devices with good feedback; Quiet & cool; High computing performance; Low idle power consumption; Strong 5-6 hour battery life

Contrast weak TFT; Narrow viewing angles; Merely WXGA resolution; No eSATA & ExpressCard; Adapter overburdened @ full load

So quiet and energy saving (idle), despite quad core CPU. The best battery life with the i7 2630QM in a notebook up until now.

A Gaming Laptop For Everyday Use Price

 

I bought this computer because I was looking for speed use, tiring of my computers slowing down with every search and upload. You will not be disappointed here. An i7 quad core processor on a 15-inch screen computer, along with the 3 second startup...

Fast startup, great processing speed, and interesting 10-key

Screen resolution of 1366x768 unusual for the computer's size. Overly sensitive touch pad

Great desktop replacement!

 

First of all, props to B&H for super speedy shipping. I ordered it Thursday morning and it arrived at my house in California at 9:25 am!!! Thanks to UPS too! The laptop is very nice. Yes, the top is nice and glossy, shiny and a fingerprint magnet....

Lightweight. Super fast. Great graphics! Nice feel to the keyboard. Easy to use. Great looks

Glossy top is a fingerprint magnet. Cost (of course)

OK, but crashes

 

Looks nice, price was good

Crashes when I play computer games, the graphics card overheats

Great features for the price

 

Overall it\'s a solid buy. The display was a bit of a disappointment. Especially since this laptop is a Samsung. My Samsung TV is amazing. I wish they would used the same technology for the laptop display. It only looks good if you view it straight on....
