Review Samsung Series 5 550P5C-T02 Notebook


Made for Multimedia. The manufacturer Samsung has been particularly associated with the Galaxy S series of smartphones. However, Samsung is not an unknown manufacturer in the notebook field, and with the Samsung Series 5 550P5C-T02, it tries to make a...

Matte, bright screen, Agreeable keyboard, Easy to clean surfaces, JBL's 2.1 sound system, The fingerprint-resistant surface is a welcome change in contrast to the other polished, glossy notebooks

Great System!


Just got this today. Newegg said 3 day shipping but I somehow got mine in 2 days! I'm already in love with it.

Looks awesome. Very Shiny. Curved bottom makes it easy to pick up. Keyboard is very well spaced apart

Low pegs on the bottom make it close to the table. May need to raise it off the table

Pretty good but no WiDi as advertised


It's too bad that I can't give this a higher rating because it's a good deal, but the computer didnt' come with WiDi as advertised. After several chat sessions with Samsung, setting up the Netgear adapter a couple of times, and restoring my computer,...
