Samsung NS310 review


The rounded and colourful case of this sleek and shiny Samsung netbook makes it stand out from the pack, as do the backlit keyboard and light weight. But do the compromises Samsung has made to achieve the style and slenderness mean it's all flash and...

Sleek, stylish, shiny design, light weight and a useful backlit keyboard

Both battery life and performance are disappointing even for an Atom netbook

Good looking, but this is a case of style over substance. There are cheaper models that are better value, unless the design is really worth the price to you.

Unimpressive battery life tarnishes a real looker of a netbook

Samsung NS310


Can a netbook still be worth £300? Samsung's latest shiny offering tries to teach us a lesson or two.

Backlit keyboard, Attractive interior, Decent keyboard

Expensive, Underpowered

Samsung NS310 review


The 10.1-inch Samsung NS310 netbook offers average performance for a fairly high price. The garish blue case will also make some people want to stab out their eyeballs.

Portable size ; Decent screen

Distinctly average performance ; Poor battery life ; Garish colour won't appeal to all

The Samsung NS310 offers only average performance for a relatively high price. It may well appeal to those seeking a netbook that looks like it's wearing a shell suit, but your money will probably be better spent elsewhere.

A beautifully designed netbook, but battery life isn't great. The NC110 is a better choice for £70 less

Samsung NS310 review


Just because the netbook is fast becoming obsolete doesn't mean its extinct. So while many would-be buyers of a small, cheap compact computer have turned their attention to arguably more suitable tablet PCs – well, almost exclusively the iPad – it...

If you’re wedded to the notion of a small under-powered netbook, the Samsung NS310 offers all the usual features, but with glitzier casework and shorter battery life.

This product is a quite literally shiny example of how the netbook market has matured in three years.

Bluetooth 3.0,Attractive Design

No real performance boost,Unimpressive battery life

The NS310 would have been a great netbook 5 years ago, unfortunately, it's not 2007 and it's not a great netbook now. It's an average netbook, but albeit quite expensive for what it is.

Portable, Pretty good Keyboard

Expensive for What it is, Dubious Colour Choice, Terrible Battery for a Netbook

Samsung were among the first manufacturers to make netbooks, with some of the best devices on the market. We had high hopes for the Samsung NS310 then, but sadly it's little more than a refreshed Samsung N310. The good Netbooks may have been overtaken...

Overall, the Samsung NS310 is a disappointment. It looks great, and with the netbook form factor having matured, we were hoping it would deliver on all fronts. It's not exactly cheap, however, and performance is poor, making devices like the Asus Eee...

Samsung Netbook NS310


Netbooks continue to be a useful solution; however this one nearly did not get reviewed. It was slow to boot almost as slow to shut down and as for opening any applications, luckily I am known for my determination so read on.
