Review Samsung RF510 Notebook


Matt Multimedian. Multimedia performance with Core i5-460M & GeForce GT 330M, paired with office qualities like a matt display, low emissions and good input devices. The perfect 15.6 incher for the consumer bearing ambitions?

High-end materials, Generally stable case, Blu-Ray player & USB 3.0, Inputs with good feedback, Quiet & cool, High computing performance, Fast hard disk, A perfect cooling system with Samsung's typical Silent Mode. When it has to be quiet, it is...

Color poor and contrast low TFT, Narrow viewing angles, Fairly short battery life, No eSATA, ExpressCard, A display with stable viewing angles and better contrasts would be beneficial for movie fans and office users alike

Samsung RF510 Review


The Samsung RF510 provides above-average performance in a stylish and resasonably-priced package. However, in this price range, the Dell XPS 15 provides similar performance with better audio, a more colorful screen, a backlit keyboard, and...

Samsung RF510-S01US


Buyers purchasing through Tiger Direct can pick up additional protection for their laptop by purchasing one of Tiger Direct's extended service plans, which start at $134.98. A 3-year plan covering accidental damage is also available for $249.98.

Fast Core i5 processor. Excellent Nvidia graphics chip. Two USB 3.0 ports. Affordable

Design is bland. Battery life is ho-hum. Doesn?t take advantage of a graphics switching technology

The Samsung RF510-S01US desktop replacement laptop has two things going for it: its speedy processor and powerful integrated Nvidia graphics chip.

Samsung RF510 - A Fleeting Workhorse


Samsung's latest RF series was built with one thing in mind - performance. Prepped with a Core i7 processor and discrete GeForce graphics, will the 15.6-inch RF510 ultimately hold its own against the competition? We took a long hard look at the sleek...

Samsung RF510-S01 Review and Ratings


The RF510 is a highly capable mainstream notebook with Core i5 power and USB 3.0 technology. It's a fine fit for mainstream users who value speed over portability.

Good overall performance ; Solid feature set ; Nice display

Short battery life ; Uninspired design

Samsung RF510-S02UK review


Closest in both specification and price to HP's Pavilion dv6-3130sa, the Samsung RF510-S02UK is a 15.6in laptop that offers many distinctive features which make it a…

The Samsung RF510-S02UK is a great performer at a very good price, with unique features such as USB 3.0. However, as an all-round entertainment laptop we found it a little lacking.

Samsung RF510 Notebook


On the face of it very like the professional notebook that I recently reviewed from Samsung however despite having USB3 ports gone is the non reflective screen and back has come the normal shiny black that shows fingermarks.

Doing my Internet searches found the Samsung RF510 at a best price of £769.92 from the first link below

Samsung RF510-SO2UK review


Frequent business travellers always need the right technology to make sure they are able to do the right job, but there is often a compromise between functionality and practicality with laptops.

Great keyboard; beautiful design; high quality display; strong performance; good value for money

Short battery life; poor audio quality; memory not upgradeable; no protective lid clasp

The Samsung RF510-SO2UK is a well designed laptop that's great value for money and can cope with any business task. Samsung has also thrown in some good multimedia components and a great screen and keyboard. Shame about the sub-par audio set up and...
