Review Samsung Series 7 700Z3A-S03DE Notebook

8gb mem ; slot loading DVD ; 1TB HD ; quiet fan ; excellent keyboard (adj back-lighting) ; reasonably good sound ; high rez (1660px) and bright LCD (non glossy - yeah!) ; easy settings and software manager way better than HP's version ; solid build, metal

LCD screen is a cheap TN panel. About as low end as you can put in a laptop. It seriously degrades an otherwise excellent product ; viewing angles are barely suitable for one user ; color and contrast NOT adjustable ; could use a 3rd USB port ;...
