Samsung Q530

 

We take a look at Samsung's 'thin and light' 15.6-inch laptop.

While the physical connectivity covers the basics okay, the Q530 does lack in a few departments. There's no eSATA for instance, and only three USB ports despite the ample space for a fourth. That said, with HDMI and VGA on-board, the Q530 should...

Samsung Q530 review

 

The Q530 is another beautifully made laptop from Samsung, with a graphite-effect lid and silver keyboard panel that's uncluttered by excess buttons or LED lights. Its beauty isn't skin deep, either: inside you'll find an Intel Core i3 350M processor...

The Q530 has everything you need - a decent display, dedicated graphics and near-desktop performance, plus a great design - but it's too expensive

Samsung Q530 review

 

The Samsung Q530 is a great-looking laptop that offers powerful performance. We wish its screen had a sharper resolution, though.

Good 3D performance ; Fast processor ; Impressive keyboard ; Slick design

Screen resolution could be better

There's plenty to like about the Samsung Q530. It has a sexy design, well-balanced specification and decent battery life. Overall, though, it's not quite as an impressive as the smaller Q330.

A large, well-designed and reasonably fast machine, the Q530 is likely to appeal to those after a desktop replacement. But the office is very much where the device will stay given its size and battery life, and we can see many business users opting for...

Audio problems

 

When playing music, videos (mp3, avi, etc), output audio is not good because it has discontinuity, ?faltering?

Not as Advertised

 

If you look at the specs they don't even mention the CPU. If you read the promo material you'd think it comes with an i5 but how many cores? Well, unless Windoze Device Manager is confused, the unit sitting on my desk has an i3 quad core CPU. I don't...

I'm very happy with my purchase!

 

My Q530 is beautiful! The screen is so sharp and vibrant. It's fast and up to date. It could be smaller and lighter, ideally, but it's not big and heavy by any means. I had one problem with the Wifi not working outside my home when I first got it. I...
