Review Samsung NP355V5C-S05DE Notebook


A Samsung featuring Trinity. Samsung is releasing another Series

Short battery life; Useful Samsung tools; USB 3.0 & Bluetooth 4.0; Good system performance

Many manufacturing flaws; Frustrating multi-touch scrolling; Meager processor performance

The extent to which AMD lags behind its competitor Intel in terms of CPU performance.

Great Machine.


I would like clarify again. If you need a laptop this is the way to go as long as you don't mind installing a usable OS yourself.

The machine works great, looks very nice and feels well built. The boot up time is rather lengthy, but I've had no problems

Windows 8. I can't emphasize that enough. After I read all the reviews on here I thought "Windows 8 can't be THAT terrible. After all, Vista was bad, but still serviceable." I couldn't have been more wrong. The UI is decidedly not designed to be used...

It is alright


Get a mouse. I am not a mousepad kind of guy. Related thoughts to the mouse pad, this one was made with Windows 8 in mind. You can swipe from the right of the keyboard to the left to access certain parts of Windows 8 features. The keyboard seems...

Delivers within a week ; Sleek design ; Decent amount of ram and HDD size ; There is hardly ANY bloatware ; It does in fact run Team Fortress 2, not at its best quality but it manages to handle it. I mainly got this for my school work ; Runs AutoCAD...

Boot time seems pretty slow, not the worst part to complain about ; Sound quality is nothing to brag about but not much to expect from a laptop ; Arrow keys are very small, due to fact of keyboard size

Smooth Operator


This computer Seems to be a hot item and sells out quickly.

Fastest laptop you will find for this price, agreed. 5 USB ports, SD card, Quad core, AMD A10. I've been looking for this computer for a long time. Beautiful display, matte screen, sleek and lightweight. Runs like a dream

none so far

Laptop with power at reasonable price


I bought this for mainly browsing the Internet and emailing and a few other things as my previous laptop slowed down and was not upgradeable anymore with the 6GB of ram and the dual core AMD chip is a good computer slow to start but purrs along nicely...

Samsung NP355V5C-A06UK


Excellent Value for money, great screen, it will run games such as battlefield 3 no problem.

Windows 8 is hard to get used to, mouse pad isnt very good, not as good build quality as my old dell.
