Samsung RF710 Review


If we hadn't just spent time ogling HP's Envy 17, we might have appreciated the Samsung RF710's aesthetics more. After all, it too sports a sleek, sophisticated design. It's just that everything about the RF710 looks low-rent compared to the Envy 17....

Quad-core CPU; decent at games; lightweight for a 17-inch notebook; good price

We’d prefer a 1920x1080 screen; GPU isn’t great for new games; glossy black lid means smudges

But for the price, the RF710’s trade-offs seem reasonable. It might not be constructed of premium materials, but it still seems well made. It offers robust processing power and decent gaming capabilities in a slim profile, and an easy-to-access free...

Review Samsung RF710 Notebook


Sophisticated entertainer. Looking for a 17-inch multimedia noteb

Good application performance; Low system noise; Moderate temperatures; Bright screen; Good input devices; Attractive design; Two USB 3.0 ports; Blu-Ray DVD drive

GeForce GT 420M a little too weak for 1600 x 900; No ExpressCard, eSATA or Firewire; Port layout not ideal; Poor screen contrast & black level; Mediocre battery life

Other 17-inch multimedia notebooks like the Acer Aspire 7745G, the Acer TravelMate 7740G, the Packard Bell EasyNote LX86 or the Samsung R780.

Samsung RF710-S02 Review - PCWorld


The Samsung RF710 desktop replacement laptop is a capable notebook with a strong mix of components, but ultimately it seems to underperform relative to other systems in its class. On the other hand, it's a relatively attractive laptop, all muted dark...

Big hard drive plus Blu-ray playback

Disappointing display

Samsung delivers a modern-looking desktop replacement with some solid components, but the overall implementation underwhelms.

Samsung RF710-S02US


The Samsung RF710-S02US is far from being the baddest, most ferocious media center laptop on the block. What keeps it from obscurity is that it's priced less than every other media center laptop we've compared it to. For under a $1,000, you get a...

A fast quad-core processor. Good graphics performance. Excellent typing and navigating experience. Reasonably priced. Blu-ray drive included

Small battery yielded subpar battery life. Design is a big yawn. Resolution maxes out at 720p

The Samsung RF710-S02US is one of the most affordable media centers, yet you still get a quad-core processor, Blu-ray drive, and plenty of storage.

Broke after 1 year


Just past it's first birthday, when it started randomly shutting down. That started happening more and more often. Then one day it was working fine and we smelled smoke. We were trying to find out where it was coming from when smoke started puffing out...

I purchased this for daughter, who loves to play the Sims, but was having so many problems on her previous laptop. She loves everything about it, and the speed during the game and such is awesome. She loves everything about it. We didn't realize it...

love this laptop!


After A LOT of research on a good laptop that was powerful and reasonably priced, I decided to go with this one, and I have not been disappointed. I adore this laptop. The only negative is the screen resolution isn't full HD and of course the battery...
