Review Samsung R730-JT06 Notebook


17" newcomer. The R730-JT06 offers a large display diagonal, a chic design and a good keyboard. Are the Intel Core i3 and the GeForce G 310M enough for a notebook of this size? Or should it have come with a bit more?

Chic design, Good construction, Good keyboard, Numeric keypad, Volume, Temperatures, We found the design of the lid to be very attractive, as well as the well executed keyboard with its large writing

Limited viewing angle, No matte TFT, Relatively limited performance, Range of connections is rather mediocre, Backlighting compatible with the touchpad should have been offered.  We also missed Bluetooh on the Samsung R730

Samsung R730 - 17.3in Laptop


If you want a large, easy to use laptop on a budget, the R730 could be for you.

A lot of screen for the price, Relatively lightweight, Roomy keyboard

Limited gaming performance, Mediocre viewing angles, Poor built-in speakers

Samsung R730 review

Well designed, with an incredible screen and decent battery life, this is a great choice if you're shopping for an inexpensive desktop replacement.

Review: Samsung R730


It's sometimes the case that when you're looking for a laptop within a budget price-range, you end up with a laptop that really looks like it's from that budget price-range. Thankfully that isn't the case with Samsung's R730……..

Often when manufacturers cut costs to provide laptops to a wider market, they get it horribly wrong. However, Samsung have got it pretty much spot on with the R730 and after those costs have been cut, you’re still left with an excellent-value device...

Very good


I looked around for a good brand and spec of laptop and settled on this model, it does everything my wife wants, she's very pleased with it, not too heavy and looks good. Very happy with it. Price and delivery from Argos were very good. No complaints!
