Review Samsung Q320

 

The new Samsung Q320, an attractive, dynamically designed noteboo ...

Stable case and display lid ; Quality material with a pleasant feel ; Aesthetic design ; Fantastic keyboard ; Good loudspeakers ; Numerous interfaces

Fan regulation in idle mode or under low load ; Weak colors and viewing angles ; Reflective display ; High-gloss display lid ; Restricted opening angle

Surmising it can however be noted: Samsung has done a good job with the Q320. The Samsung Q320 proves to be a useable mobile companion

Samsung NP-Q320

 

For many people, the pricing sweet spot for the perfect laptop is between $800 and $1000. Full-fledged yet svelte, Samsung's NP-Q320 all-purpose notebook ($949 as of September 10, 2009) has the muscle to serve as your primary work/school/home computer....

Good performance for the price ; Attractive and easy to carry

Poor screen contrast and viewing angles ; Too many ports crammed onto one side

With the exception of a lackluster screen, this is a slick general purpose laptop with a good bit of power for the price.

Samsung Q320 - Review of the Samsung Q320

 

Attractive design, Good keyboard, Strong performance

Mediocre media playback, Relatively short battery life, Slow Hard Drive

The low-friction touchpad is reasonably sized and supports a few multitouch gestures, including pinching to zoom in/out on a Web page or photo. The buttons are easy to click and provide good tactile feedback

Review Of The Samsung Q320 Laptop

 

Well, I found the speaker quality the most unimpressive among all the other stuff it has been packed with. The sound was barely audible, tinny and even high pitched at times. Also the video quality was not that great not only during video streaming but...

good processing power, excellent graphics performance, conventional but classy design, well spaced keyboard

low battery life, slow hard drive, media player features are also pretty much average

With a low battery life and a heavy frame this one isn’t exactly the portable notebook that you'd be looking for. But the price along with the other features that it has to offer make it a pretty much compelling choice. I would recommend it to anyone...

Samsung's Q320 is a highly portable laptop offering quality and usability without compromises

Great looks ; Decent performance ; Very comfortable

Fingerprint magnet ; Some lag when multi-tasking

Samsung Q320 notebook review

 

Over the past few years Samsung has released an impressive range of affordable laptops, mixing quality with features and usability. The Q320 continues this trend, and its portable nature makes it a great choice for business users. The inside of this...

Good quality, strong 3D performance, highly portable

Glossy lid is a magnet for prints

A compact and well designed laptop that does it all. It’s not the most desirable laptop we’ve seen though

Samsung Q320-FS01UK review

 

At 2.2kg, Samsung's attractive Q320 is 200g heavier than our limit for ultra-portable laptops, but it's still light enough to carry regularly.

The Q320's excellent design, great keyboard and small size make it a decent travelling companion.

Samsung Q320 review

 

The laptop is compact and light enough (2.33kg) not to break your back, it has a 13.4in screen that you don't need to squint at, and the Samsung NP-Q320 is powerful enough to run most major applications well. Still, this nice all-purpose laptop suffers...

At £670 the Samsung Q320 poses strong competition for other well-equipped 13in notebooks, such as the Dell Studio XPS 13. Samsung's model has a little more muscle than that, but it isn't quite as stylish. Overall, the NP-Q320 is a pretty good value for...

Samsung Q320 - 13.4in Laptop

 

Samsung continues its excellent reputation for portable laptops with its latest 13in effort, the Q320-AS02UK.

This is a well considered and classy step-forward from its predecessor. While the Q310 was overly flashy and slightly gaudy, the Q320 is more restrained and offers a look and feel that surpasses its affordable price. This view can be applied to its...
