Review Samsung Series 7 700Z5A Notebook

 

Elegant all-rounder. Samsung has big plans with the Chronos 700Z5

Compact case; Keyboard light; Short booting; Good workmanship; Long battery life; Big touchpad; Small power adapter; Good performance; Elegant design; Fast HDD

Low scope of interfaces; Only RAM accessible; Wobbly lid; Lack of stability; Run of the mill display

Samsung Series 7 (NP700Z5A-S03)

 

I'm a sucker for skinny chassis with slot-loading optical drives. The Samsung Series 7 (NP700Z5A-S03) ($1,299 list) laptop combines an elegantly slim (under one inch thick) aluminum case with slot-loading DVD±RW drive; sunny 15.6-inch screen and...

Elegant design and feature set. Bright hi-res screen and backlit keyboard. Swift boot and resume times

DVD, not Blu-ray, drive. Non-removable battery. No WiDi

A bit pricey by PC standards but $500 under a MacBook Pro, the Samsung Series 7 is a winning desktop replacement.

Great value laptop

 

I would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

For the price, it's hard to find better value in another laptop. Just about everything works great

The right-click on my track pad sometimes registers as a left-click. I normally use a wireless mouse though so this is a minor problem. The laptop does get hot when using more demanding applications like HD video playback or video games. The Samsung...

Does not Series 7 specs!

 

Strange that there are no other comments on such a well priced and generally well regarded laptop...

Nice laptop, if it met the specs for this model

This laptop is being shipped without a backlit keyboard, despite the fact that all SAMSUNG NP700Z5A are supposed to come with a backlit keyboard. This is consistent with other suppliers of the identical model and has been confirmed by Samsung

Great laptop with slot-loading optical !

 

For the components, this is a great form-factor and is reasonable as a desktop replacement. Discrete video provides a better graphics experience than Intel\'s integrated graphics when necessary. Slot-loading optical drive, backlit keyboard, full number...

Fatal Flaws

 

Really tragic for a machine with such incredible potential to miss the mark on one item that could have been better designed so easily. If you only use WiFi this might not affect you.

This machine is in many ways absolutely wonderful, fast, light, etc; BUT

All the usual new computer annoyances that I will not mention. It has some serious flaws, some I can live with, one that I cannot. Can live with? Even with the Samsung updates the WiFi is very bad because of the poor antenna placement. Plan on using a...
