Review Samsung RF711-S02DE Notebook


Multimedian. Samsung introduces the Sandy Bridge processors to th

Solid workmanship; Stylish, but nevertheless plain design; Good keyboard; BluRay drive; Adequate battery runtimes in low load

No Full HD display; Throttling during full load (undersized power adapter); Display brightness is limited in battery mode

The competition is vast for the Samsung RF711. We have recently had a comparable laptop in review with the Packard Bell EasyNote TS11. But Medion also has an attractive notebook to offer with the Akoya P6631. Even the latest Dell XPS 15 or the stronger...

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...

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)

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...

One Flaw


Great Laptop. Had it for a month and love it. The only flaw I find is the awkward keyboard layout for the number pad and cursor arrows. Not a huge deal. Still very much worth the buy.

Great Laptop


I play games with this machine and was very surprised at the video in it was almost 3d like the only change I made was increased the memory to 8gb's it really woke up the performance. I would recommend it to anyone.
