Review Samsung Series 5 530U4E-S02DE Ultrabook

 

Understatement. Samsung restyles its midrange dubbed Series 5 wit

Attractive design; Decent build & stability; Ports placed at the back; Modern communication features; RAM is easy to upgrade; Compelling input devices; Good application and graphics performance; AMD's Radeon HD 8750M ensures gaming fun; Sound of JBL's...

Only one USB 3.0 port; VGA out only usable via optionally available adapter; Hard drive and fan cannot be accessed directly; TN screen's middling rates; Noticeable temperature increase in Office use due to disabled fan

Slim devices with a 14-inch screen, such as the Acer Aspire M3-481, Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch, Schenker Xirios S402, Dell Latitude 6430u, Toshiba Satellite P845-106 or Acer Aspire V5-471G. Not all devices fulfill Intel's ultrabook specifications.

As advances in technology march on, new products naturally are able to pack more and more power into an ever-shrinking profile. If you think about it, just a few years ago our laptops were slow, bulky chunks of plastic who's specs pale in comparison to...

Good value, Matte Screen, Build quality, Pleasant keyboard to use

Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook Review

 

You may be slightly confused - is this an ultrabook, or just a mainstream laptop on a diet? With the Series 5, Samsung is smartly appealing to a wider demographic than a device otherwise does. This is meant for someone who wants consistent power on a...

Well built, Stable performance, Non-reflective display is very comfortable, Humongous hard drive, Doesn't miss out on features - graphics card, HDMI and USB 3.0

Battery life isn't the best around, Dedicated graphics, but limited capabilities, On the heavier side

Samsung Series 5 ultrabook

 

Excellent screen, Comfortable keyboard, Reasonable price

In our benchmark tests, the Series 5 delivered 3131 Marks in 3D Mark. When compared to, Dell’s XPS 13, though, which sported similar base specifications; it came off second best, as the XPS 13 delivered 3503 marks., Not surprisingly, the Series 5 was...

Granted, the Series 5 has its fair share of competition, not least of which is coming from its Samsung’s own newly announced thin and light Series 9 notebooks. That being said, for the most part the Series 5 holds its own and proved to be a very good...

Samsung Series 5 Ultra review

 

Here's the thing: Samsung pitches the Series 5 Ultra as the first Ultrabook to sport an optical drive. But it's not, because it's not an Ultrabook. Sure, it may (barely) hit the 21mm thickness mark, but it contains a hard disk drive (along with a cache...
