Samsung RV520-W01

 

The 640GB, 5,400rpm hard drive is larger than the 500GB one found in the HP dv6-6013cl and Toshiba L655-S5161RDx. The rest of the RV520's features are in line with its peers, including the 3 USB ports, a DVD burner, and HDMI. There's a 1.3 Megapixel...

Very good battery life. WiDi 2.0 and WiMAX wireless technologies built-in. One of the lightest 15-inch laptops. Priced reasonably. Numeric keypad included

Noisy mouse clicks. Design is falling behind the times

The Samsung RV520-W01 budget laptop delivered excellent battery life and a glut of new age wireless technologies, but it's lacking a bit in terms of design.

Samsung RV520 review

 

We've long praised Samsung for its stylish laptop designs, and the RV520 - the 15in cousin of the RV720 - is no exception. It has a smart matt silver case with a pinstripe texture on its two-tone lid and a glossy black keyboard panel. Most of its edges...

A simple laptop with a budget processor, integrated graphics and half a terabyte of hard disk space for just £420; catch it while you can

Really Great Laptop

 

This notebook looks great and is lightweight with a sleek design. I really love the side numeric keypad and large screen. The notebook appears to be in perfect condition and was not pre-loaded with what I consider a lot of "junk" programs, like my last...

The only con is I don't like the way the mouse buttons click ; I will be getting a wireless mouse

Recertified = 30 Day Wait

 

Moral of the story, it was probably worth the money to buy it new for the fiance's birthday.

The machine looked perfect

I have purchased flawless refurbished items in the past. However, I live in Florida, and the RMA department is in California. So if for some reason products have to go back, 10 Days to ship it across the country, 10 days to "process, repair, or...

Laptop Crashes when it goes to sleep!

 

When the laptop goes to sleep, it doesn't "wake up" properly and you are left with no windows. The only solution I can find is to go to task manager and stop the dwm.exe program (desktop windows manager). Samsung website is absolutely no help!
