Review Samsung Series 5 530U4C-S02 Ultrabook


Multimedia ultrabook. The elegant purists are slowly mutating to versatile multimedia machines. Samsung's new ultrabook sports a GeForce graphics card and DVD burner at a reasonable price. Is it an all-rounder or a bad compromise?

Dedicated GeForce graphics featuring Nvidia's Optimus, Bright, matte screen, DVD burner, 2x USB 3.0, Good battery life, The bright screen calls for outdoor use

Outdated CPU, Mediocre casing, Small opening angle, Poor viewing angle stability, Moderate sound, Too bad that a Sandy Bridge generation processor and not an Ivy Bridge processor is used here

Samsung 530U4C


Good screen, keyboard is responsive and the laptop is a good size for the specification (inc DVD)

I had real issues with the WiFi adaptor. WiFi dropped out a few times then packed up completely. I had to manually reinstall a new driver firmware via an Ethernet cable. This issue has been quite common looking at web forums.
