Samsung R510 review

 

A solid and well made laptop, offering good value for money

HDMI output ; Fairly powerful ; Decent keyboard

Screen could be better ; Integrated graphics

A good machine for browsing the web or for working on the move or even connecting to your HDTV but don't expect to be gaming in your free time

Samsung R510 Premium versus Basic review

 

Does spending more necessarily mean better performance?

Strong performance ; Stylish design ; Competitive price ; Great screen ; Impressive software package included

High-end model offers little on basic ; Poor battery life

A good looking and well-priced laptop, but for value, you're best off with the basic model

Samsung's new R510 is an updated version of the model we saw seven months ago in What's New, Shopper 249.

Samsung R510 review

 

The Samsung R510 lasted for just over four hours in our MobileMark 2007 battery test, which will last you through a good train journey, even with the inevitable delays.

The Samsung R510 is a decent laptop with amazing battery life, but if you’re prepared to take a minor hit on performance, you could get the Acer Aspire 5920 for significantly less outlay.

Samsung NP-R510

 

The Samsung R510 is an able performer with a classy looking design. It comes with a healthy set of features, for the asking price.

Build quality ; HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet ; Good screen brightness

Price

The Samsung NP-R510 is an able performer with a WorldBench score of 81. Is fairly similar in hardware configuration to the Dell Inspiron 15 and our winner, the Acer Aspire 5738. It's a budget laptop with good performance.

Samsung - R510

 

Just to confuse people there are two types of Samsung R510 available to the consumer at the moment: a pre Centrino 2 model, which even more confusingly comes with the correct Centrino 2 chipset but without ...

A well priced and well featured mid-range notebook ideal for the non-gaming home user or even for the small office, but it's at a price point with a lot of competition. Some of that competition offers even more features, so you might be better served...

Samsung's latest injects a bit of sex-appeal into the budget laptop market. Sasha Muller gives it the hands-on.

Why Samsung's clamshell phone is more Starship Enterprise than Stamford Bridge

A great little phone that's all kinds of sci-fi but not suited to gaming
