Review Samsung RV515-S03DE Notebook

 

Zacate gamer. We have often criticized the unsatisfactory gaming capabilities of AMD's E-series APUs. Samsung wants to solve this problem by combining it with a dedicated HD 6470M graphics card. Gaming power AND mobility in an entry-level laptop?

Large & swift touchpad, Low noise & Silent Mode, Useful Samsung tools, Recovery data carriers, Agreeably quiet and cool at the touch of a button

Yielding chassis, Keys' high-gloss frame, Low contrast, Few ports, Poor 3D performance, Why a glare-type? If it has to be a low-cost typewriter, then with a matte screen

Decent for the money

 

It is a cheap computer that looks expensive. It's also samsung, but if you care about the monitor or overall performance, go with a cheaper brand with better guts.

This is not a bad laptop. It's solidly constructed with fine parts. it also looks amazing and is under 400 bucks shipped. I really like the keyboard, mousepad, and feature package, however, the Asus I bought with this had more bang for the buck. That's...

I will say it has a subpar monitor and the processor leaves some to be desired. It is also not as impressive as the asus I also bought refurbished for 25 bucks less

Nice!

 

My wife was looking for a laptop on a budget, and I found this for her. It arrived yesterday, and being the "IT Guy" in the house, I'm the one who powered it up and checked it out. Took a while to update, but it appears to be very suitable for what she...

Super clean, looks brand-new. Well packed. Manufactured 6 months ago. Thankfully free of "added value" software. Comes with a 60 day subscription to Norton

Hard disk is only 120GB, NOT the 320 listed in the description ; NO printed documentation provided ; Comes with a 60 day subscription to Norton

After being a loyal Sony user for years I decided to buy this computer b/c it was a great deal for the $. When I spoke to customer service to answer questions about warranties they were WONDERFUL. The computer has too many add ons for me. There are all...

Nice Laptop , Portable, Well Constructed. I think this is the best laptop for this price range, i was confused between intel processors and AMD. But since, I will be using it for light graphics, this is better in choice, looks. pros: feels very light...

Good product for the price

 

This is good laptop compared to others in the segment. Very good for basic stuff like word processing, video chat, music and browsing which is exactly what the majority of us do

Overall, underwhelming. The screen gives off a weird tinge of green on the yellows, and i find the processor a bit tempermental. Also, air circulation is minimal leaving this machine prone to overheating. Good for the price, but avoid any serious...

Issues with built in Ethernet.

 

Built in Realtek Ethernet has connection issues. Constantly disconnects randomly from network. I have several other PC's connected, and this one is the only computer that constantly loses connection with internet. Wireless works fine.

HEY

 

I bought it when it was on sale about 2 months ago and I am very happy. The battery could be a bit better quality, but I think that would be Samsung's fault. I am in grade nine and i love it. It was worth the money that I worked for myself.
