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.

Samsung Series 3 NP355V5C review

 

Not an Ultrabook, but a big, powerful laptop

Nice build ; Capable of decent gaming ; Really good keyboard ; Large hard drive ; Loads of RAM

Underperforming CPU ; Disappointing screen ; No Blu-ray ; Below average battery life ; Bloatware

Though the Samsung Series 3 seems attractive on paper for its price, a closer look doesn't bear this out. Disappointing performance scores and battery life, along with a few missing specs, take the edge off what is otherwise a very capable machine. The...

Good Qaulity Laptop

 

Descent Laptop for the money. 2nd one I have purchased for a church, and no issues so far.

Descent HDD, RAM, Processor, Windows 8 Pro x64

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...

pretty good

 

really nice machine. got it for my wife and she enjoys it

none so far , i have not tested it for games but good for everything else

Consumer review by:

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

Consumer review by:

Adequate performer at a budget price

 

The exciting spec with this model is the HDD which is larger than average in this price range. It also has an optical drive standard which is no longer something you can take for granted.I'm surprised the machine is as slow as it is - time for programs...

Large drive, comes with DVDR

Slow

Not a good samsung product

 

This computer on work with half of the memory installed, one of the memory slots on the computer does not detect the memory, the computer doesn not even boot up when imleft that only memory on that memory slot, also I tried different memory and the...

screen display

slow, and slow and hardware or bios problems

Consumer review by:

good budget laptop

 

This is a great computer for anyone who wants some power at a low cost. It runs games like minecraft, tf2 and scp containment breach with little to no lag. It most likely wont run high end games like BF4, but still great for lighter ones. Don't be...
