Review Samsung NF210 Netbook

 

Just when you thought it was safe... The NF210-HZ1 is Samsung's second Shark netbook. The matt HD screen and powered USB of the first Shark are omitted; but it scores points for portability - a 3G UMTS module is included as standard. Is this a useful...

Samsung has a reputation for producing high-quality electronics, and the NF210 is no exception. Our TopTenREVIEWS Silver Award winner performs admirably in all the important areas. Netbooks tend to be very similar to each other in terms of form factor,...

A 250GB hard drive provides you with enough space to save documents and pictures to your heart's content. The standard hard drive for netbooks right now is 250GB, and that gives you a lot of room. You won't have to worry about whether or not you have...

Samsung NF210 : A Netbook with Sexy Curves but Average Scores

 

Space is definitely a very serious issue when you're traveling and that's where a netbook has a big advantage over a laptop. The Dell M101z netbook that came to our labs for a review saw some really nice scores for a netbook, but at the same time, the...

The NF210 is priced at Rs. 22,990 and the question is should you buy it? The NF210 recorded some decent scores, but netbooks are always expected to run for longer durations. Also, the hard drive was a little too slow. While the NF210’s curves and looks...

Excellent battery life, very good keyboard, comfortable to use, matte screen, interesting design

The Samsung NF210-A01AU is a great netbook. It feels comfortable to use, it's light and it looks good. Best of all, its battery life is tremendous! It lasted over six hours when playing videos with its screen at full brightness, and over 10 hours when...

Samsung NF210

 

The last year or so has seen the laptop market being flooded with a series of netbooks which are proving popular thanks to their compact designs and affordable prices. There may be a huge selection to choose from, but a great deal of the products are...

Chic design, dual-core Intel Atom processor, good keyboard

Price, no HDMI port

There's no denying that the NF210 is a very nice netbook indeed. The slick design goes some way towards justifying the slightly high price tag, as does the satisfyingly comfortable keyboard and the zippy dual-core processor. If price is the most...

The NF210 is a great-looking netbook, but the dual-core processor doesn't bring a noticeable performance increase in day-to-day use.
