Review Samsung Series 7 Gamer 700G7A Notebook

 

Attack on the gaming elite. Alienware and Asus have to watch out:

High-end screen; Illuminated keyboard; Good input devices; Good equipment; Two big HDDs; Blu-Ray drive; Recovery DVD; Great performance

Temperatures during load; Sensitive lid; Scanty battery life; High weight

17 inch laptops with a gaming graphics card, such as the Alienware M17x, the Asus G74SX, the DevilTech Fragbook, the Medion Erazer X7813, the MSI GT780R, the Schenker XMG P701 PRO or the Toshiba Qosmio X770.

Gaming laptops are the domain of a rather limited crowd. The smaller boutiques, though many in number, all rely on a limited amount of designs from common manufacturers like Clevo. Only the major OEMs have the resources necessary to build something...

Pleasing keyboard and touchpad ; The best laptop display we’ve ever tested ; Quick, well-rounded performance ; Affordable (for a gaming laptop)

Gaudy exterior ; Average build quality ; Subpar connectivity ; Poor battery life

This isn’t just a gaming machine; it’s also a portable workstation, a multi-media powerhouse, and a capable desktop replacement. The Samsung Series 7 Gamer is the only computer you’d ever need. Portability excluded, of course.

Samsung Series 7 Gamer review

 

Samsung's Series 7 lineup is targeted at folks who want a little more oomph in their laptops, offering larger screens, gaming-ready GPUs, and potent processors. It's time to meet the family's portly fun-loving uncle, the Series 7 Gamer.

Stylish design ; Bright, attractive display ; Strong (though not category leading) performance

Lackluster battery life ; A bit pricey ; Not very future-proof

A tale of two titans

Sure, thin, light and power-efficient may be the latest trend in notebook design, but one category of portable computing isn't afraid of going against the grain: the oversized gaming laptop. These big machines often flirt with double-digit weights,...

Gorgeous display ; Graphical powerhouse ; Subtle, clean design

Unimpressive trackpad ; Middling audio quality ; Corny "game mode" transition

Despite suffering a handful of faults common to oversized laptops, the Samsung Series 7 Gamer excels where it counts. Gamers looking for a rig that's easy to relocate won't be disappointed.

The Samsung Series 7 Gamer delivers on most fronts, making for a powerful gaming laptop that's equipped with some great features. Its minor shortcomings are tempered by its reasonable price tag.

Adjustable power settings via Mode Dial. Gorgeous display. WiDi. Blu-ray. Great keyboard/touchpad combination. Reasonably priced for its class. Solid battery life

Different modes are of questionable value. Minor amount of flexing on the lid. Some bloatware

For many PC gamers, owning a powerful laptop that will let them have their fun anywhere is preferable to staying rooted at home with an oversize desktop rig. The Series 7 Gamer is Samsung's answer--but how does it stack up against other...

Runs games smoothly at high resolutions ; Moderately priced for the power

A power hog ; Heavy

A great system for game fans on the go, the Series 7 Gamer won't completely break the bank.

There has been a small flood of big-screened gaming mega laptops recently, timed to coincide with the release of Nvidia's latest graphics and Intel's newest processors. Ivy Bridge Core i-series CPUs started in quad-core configurations first , although...

The Samsung Series 7 Gamer has a fantastic screen, plenty of ports, a blazing processor and graphics, and most of the features you'd be looking for in a gaming desktop replacement.

This clunky beast isn't a looker, and it's hardly priced to be relevant to most shoppers: at slightly under $2,000, this is a specialty item.

The Samsung Series 7 Gamer is huge, expensive, and unattractive, but it's also one of the best gaming laptops that we've seen this year. If you don't mind its beefy 17-inch form, you won’t be disappointed.

Samsung's Series 7 Gamer marries an Intel Ivy Bridge processor with Nvidia's greatest graphics in a notebook that offers users pure gaming bliss. We just wish it ran cooler.

GOOD FOR GAMING!

It's not true that a heavyweight gaming laptop means a light wallet. Sure, there are tricked-out, fire-breathing, ultra-hardcore portables in the $4,000 and $5,000 range, but as we've seen with systems like the Asus G75VW-DS71 and MSI GT70 0NC-011US,...

Solid performance ; Reasonably priced ; Plenty of ports ; Backlit keyboard

Reflective screen ; Mode dial mostly a gimmick ; Bulky ; A little bloatware

With the Samsung Series 7 Gamer you get game-worthy performance and a full list of features, ranging from a first-class screen to a Blu-ray drive and backlit keyboard, all at a reasonable price.
