Review Samsung Q330 Suri Subnotebook

 

Glare office. Samsung bestows its 13.3 incher with the perfect di

Very bright TFT; Application performance; Quiet & cool (Silent Mode); DVD drive; Superficial aluminum looks; Fingerprint repellent; Good battery life; Nvidia Optimus

TFT not AR coated; Tight viewing angles; Low contrast; Few inerfaces; Partly lacks torsional stiffness

Why is a glare type screen bestowed with such good brightness? The technically possible mobility is reductio ad absurdum.

A stunningly well made and powerful ultraportable at a great price

Solid, premium chassis ; Portable build ; Strong usability ; Excellent performance for the price ; Crisp and vibrant display

Battery life is fair, but not a match for some other modern ultra-portables ; Glossy screen is highly reflective ; Limited integrated graphics

Samsung Q330-JS03AU notebook

 

Samsung's Q330-JS03AU is an attractive, sub-2kg 13.3in laptop that's slim, well-featured and competitively priced. It's the perfect size for users who...

Stylish, good size for travellers, built-in optical drive, good performance, big hard drive

NVIDIA graphics card doesn't provide much of a performance boost, SD card slot awkwardly located at the front, touchpad not centred under space bar

We love the style and size of the Samsung Q330 and think it's a great notebook for travellers. Its performance is good and it has a useful set of features, but it also has two graphics adapters that provide similar performance to each other. We'd...

Samsung Q330 review

 

Recent Samsung laptops have been stylish affairs, notable as much for their glossy red casing and matching keyboard and trackpad as for their computing capabilities.

Subtle looks and good performance from a well-priced laptop

Average graphics capabilities

Enjoyable and effective laptop with discreet looks and good specs

Samsung Q330 review

 

We were impressed with Samsung's Q330 laptop when we first saw it last year; the 2kg ultra-portable had a great design and excellent battery life, but it wasn't completely flawless. With only 3GB of memory and a 32-bit operating system, it wasn't as...

Improves on the original, but only just; we still want to see 4GB of RAM, but the Q330 is still an excellent ultra-portable laptop.

Samsung Q330 (Core i3-370M) review

 

The latest Samsung Q330 has a slightly more powerful processor and a tweaked design. Overall, this 13.3-inch laptop is still great, but rival machines offer better graphics performance.

Improved performance compared to preceding model ; Better design ; Still a great all-rounder

Still no dedicated graphics card

The new Samsung Q330 is still a great laptop. We like the minor design revisions and the new processor improves performance ever so slightly. The machine is no longer quite as impressive as it was back in August, but it's a solid option nevertheless.

The 13.3-inch Samsung Q330 backs up its stunning performance with looks to match. As a result, we think it's a great option if you're looking for a laptop to use on the move.

Fast and powerful ; Bright screen ; Slim and light ; Isolated keys and large touchpad

Relatively poor graphics performance

We're mightily impressed with the Samsung Q300. It's easy on the eye, very slim and lightweight, and has plenty of grunt under its beautiful bonnet. At a reasonable asking price of around £600, we have no problem recommending this laptop.

Recommended!

Samsung produces yet another excellent and affordable 13.3-inch laptop.

Durable ; Stylish ; Cheap ; Excellent battery life

Annoying touchpad positioning ; Glossy touchpad buttons ; Poor screen viewing angles

Aside from the silly touchpad placement, it's difficult to fault the Q330. It's durable, looks good, performs well and has very good battery life: all the things you need in a genuinely mobile laptop. Best of all, however, is the price. At £600 it's an...

Stylish and usable if you're after performance and power more than battery life.
