Review Samsung RF711-S02DE Notebook

 

Multimedian. Samsung introduces the Sandy Bridge processors to the RF range and supplies a proper multimedia laptop that is even suitable for gaming in the RF711. Why this laptop wastes a part of its theoretical maximum performance can be read in our...

Solid workmanship, Stylish, but nevertheless plain design, Good keyboard, BluRay drive, Adequate battery runtimes in low load, Typing is very pleasant on the Samsung RF711's keyboard. You even like to type longer texts on it

No Full HD display, Throttling during full load (undersized power adapter), Display brightness is limited in battery mode, We would have liked to see a Full HD display for the RF711 so that the quality of BluRays can be exploited

Samsung RF711 Notebook

 

Mobile multimedia workhorse with a respectable price tag.

Samsung is not a big player in the mobile computer market, but their RF711 notebook appears to signify an attempt to change that. Looking to make a splash with consumers, it's priced rather well and offers some strong hardware specifications and...

Samsung RF711

 

This 17.3in Sandy Bridge laptop is an affordable and stylish multimedia powerhouse that's stuffed with features and connectivity.

Stylish, fingerprint-resistant interior, Powerful quad-core processing, Dedicated Nvidia graphics allow light gaming, 1TB of hard drive space and USB 3.0, Decent ergonomics

Average screen, Disappointing speakers, Poor battery life, 'Cheap' chassis doesn't match premium internals

Samsung RF711 review

 

A blazingly-fast processor makes the RF711 great for multimedia editing, but the 17.3in screen should have a higher resolution, and its keyboard isn't great

Samsung RF711 17.3in Core i7 laptop

 

Review It's not unusual for desktop replacements to have a bit of heft, but Samsung's RF711 positively throws caution to the wind. Tipping the scales at an obese 2.9kg and measuring 416mm across (almost one-and-a-half feet), it's only a laptop in the...

As machinery goes, the RF711 is only slightly more portable than the Large Hadron Collider [4], which is to say you shouldn't buy it if you want to use it on your commute or take it on a plane. What it does have is absolutely stacks of computing power,...

Samsung RF711

 

Samsung's latest entrant to the large screen laptop arena aimed at multimedia and browsing around the house promises a package that's full on technology and connectivity. But does it stand up to the performance of rivals?

Extremely satisfied, only thing missing is Blu-Ray.

 

Overall, best bang for the buck!! I looked around for a while before finally purchasing and I could not find a better deal. getting ready to buy my wife the same one as well.

Easy set up,not a whole lot of crap that needs to be uninstalled/deleted. FAST!!!! Clean look, not too flashy and handy quick buttons. extra HDD slot and RAM slot

no Blu-Ray, 5400rpm HDD(see above for fix)

Great Machine...Good price

 

Only wish it came with Win7 Pro as an option instead of Win7 Home...maybe I'll take care of that later. :)

I'm an IT person by trade...working with desktops, servers and everything in between ; I bought this laptop for my wife for Christmas and it's been a great machine! She plays mmorpg games and the large capacity hard drive and on-board video with...

None so far

Great value for feature set

 

This is my first laptop. I have built and overclocked my own desktops for around 10 years but never really liked laptops. Now that I have been forced to buy one, I feel this was a very good value at a buck under $900. Of course I would have liked more...
