Samsung RV720 review

 

Cheap, cheerful and just a little chunky, the Samsung RV720 is an impressive budget 17-inch laptop that's a step up from the usual desktop replacement - but perhaps not the powerhouse you might imagine from a notebook this size.

Good build quality, good layout and a decent screen at a good price

You might not expect Blu-ray at this price but no USB 3 is disappointing, the glossy screen is problematic

A bargain price 17-inch notebook that doesn't look "bargain basement"

The Samsung RV720 boasts enough power to handle your everyday office tasks and the large screen makes it an ideal candidate for enjoying films on a modest budget.

Large screen is great for videos ; Affordable price tag ; Decent performance for the price

Won't handle recent games ; Uninspiring design ; Small trackpad can be awkward

If you're after a desktop replacement laptop that will display your movies well, then the RV720 is a great choice. It may not be the most powerful thing on the market, but it has enough grunt to handle general office tasks and won't break the bank.

One thing that sets Samsung's budget laptops apart from the competition is their style. Even when you're spending around £500, you can guarantee the laptop will look fantastic. The RV720 is no exception, with its gunmetal grey finish and stylish...

Want a large laptop without the large outlay? Samsung's cheap but cheerful 17.3in effort comes highly recommended.

Bargain pricing ; Great usability ; Attractive, durable design ; Good build quality ; 750GB HDD

Limited performance ; No USB 3 ; No Blu-ray ; Glossy screen ; Poor audio

Though its connectivity and specifications are nothing to get excited about, its solid build, decent battery life, excellent design and great usability - along with a totally bargain price - ensure that this Samsung is one of the best 17.3in laptops...

Samsung RV720 17in Core i3 notebook

 

Review Desktop replacement laptops are a genre of portable computer apparently intent on chuntering on forever without ever truly succeeding or dying. By nature, they tend not to be petite, and Samsung's RV720 is no exception.

The Samsung RV720 is a very capable machine, and those looking for a general purpose PC to use at home won't do much better for the money. There's not a spectacular amount of performance, but it will handle most jobs including creative tasks such as...

Samsung Big Notebook RV720 : Samsung RV720 Notebook Computer

 

Finally I think some manufacturers are listening when people moan about the black surrounds showing fingermarks. The solution is to simply remove the black, on this only the base and the keyboard area are the dreaded black.

The processor is Intel Core i3 2310M, it comes with 4GB of RAM and 674GB hard disk spread over ‘C’ and ‘D’. The Windows Experience score is 4.7 made up of Processor 6.4, Memory 5.9, Graphics 4.7, Gaming Graphics 6.0 and Hard Disc 5.9. I found the...
