Review Samsung RF510 Notebook


Matt Multimedian. Multimedia performance with Core i5-460M & GeFo

High-end materials; Generally stable case; Blu-Ray player & USB 3.0; Inputs with good feedback; Quiet & cool; High computing performance; Fast hard disk

Color poor and contrast low TFT; Narrow viewing angles; Fairly short battery life; No eSATA, ExpressCard

The fast hard disk paired with the i5-460M provides an impressive work speed.

Samsung RF510


A sleek design, powerful graphics, and comfy keyboard make this a strong buy for home users looking for a notebook with some muscle.

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


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

Despite its relatively short battery life and bland exterior design, the Samsung RF510 is an excellent pep-for-the-dollar choice among mainstream notebooks. Not only do you get strong productivity and multimedia performance, but you can also enjoy some...

Excellent performance, great design


great laptop, well worth the money.

This laptop is excellent for gaming and power users. it has a core17 processor and Nvidia Geforce graphics

my only complaint is the touchpad. it works well and all, but it seems to mess up my typing more than any other laptop ive used. while i type i barely touch it and it sends my cursor to another place. i just disable the touchpad and use my mouse

Fast service!


I wouldn't mind paid more for a faster and better one.

Picture quality is outstanding! Newegg custumer service answer all my concerns in a timely manner. Price was very good in comparison with other markets. The laptop is nice but not quite as I was expected

Not as faster as I was expected. Is faster than my previous laptop but my friend got a similar laptop different make and was much faster and acurate

Great Buy


Great buy. We went ahead and spent a little more to get this unit than originally planned, but I know that it won't be obsolete in a year from now with the usb 3.0, built in bluetooth, and graphics processor that it has. If you need a powerhouse, this...

Very fast computer. I say computer cause this is more powerful than the PC I built a couple years ago. I'm very picky about the keyboards on laptops and really like this keyboard. Key spacing is as close to a regular keyboard as I've seen on a laptop....

No blu-ray, but I didn't pay the premium. You can get a cheaper laptop with blu-ray but it won't have the rest of the goods like this one. The HDD was formatted at startup to only around 575 gb. I don't quite understand the reason. I know you loose a...
