Best Value for the price
by Venkat Kesaraju on 2012-12-07
I have purchased this laptop last week, and waited for a week to write my review.
First, the provided specs ( 4GB/3rdGenCi5/750GB/Win8) are excellent for the price offered, compared to any other brand in the market.
The screen resolution is good with good touch pad. The keys are well spaced out on key board and appear to be a bit stick,y but over all works good.
I do not use my laptop for games , so did not test much , for low level games so far the performance is good.
The hard disk has only one partition for the entire space( there are small recovery partitions) , which we have to change if we want have multiple disk drives.
Flip kart service is excellent as I received the laptop before the estimated delivery date.
The biggest drawback is OS ( Win 8) . this is the most clunky and unwieldy OS ever. Win8 may have been designed for touch pads, but there was no need to force it on the laptop/PC users. Everything about Win 8 - be it navigation, switching windows- basically all the things we got used to in windows are made so difficult in this version.
The only positive going Win8 is , now we do not need to shutdown , as the laptop can be in sleep mode whenever not needed. The annoying part is you have to really look out for shutdown option , if you want to shut it down.
I suggest all you potential buyers out there, to search for Win8 reviews before buying one.
So buy this laptop from Samsung /Flipkart or with similar specs.. but stick to Win 7.
I would have given 5 stars but for Win 8.

i know many have given their pros and cons but i believe cons are more important than pros
so here are mine
First of all there is no indicator lights for the locks (Num lock,Caps lock...)
Its really frustrating guys.....that is when you are typing in passwords....i was once typing a password several times and after quite a few tries found out that caps lock was on...this is really bad guy
second there is a severe problem with the wireless adapter
it connects to my BSNL wifi router but does not go online
i tried several fixes but none of them worked
it may be a problem with Windows 8
But it works when i use an external wifi adapter O.o
Well there are no USB 3.0 ports :(
Other than these its a good lappy as it gives very good battery life
has a nice screen
keypad is good(except for the missing indicator lights)
good sensitive trackpad

This laptop does not have a num lock light!! As such, you end up frustrated every time num lock is "on", but you don't know.
Otherwise a good product.

It has got one memory slot free. only one slot is used. About other options, norton is 60 days package after that we need to renew the antivirus or to disable it. one 750GB c drive only where the OS is installed.No other partition.win 8 is for touchpad rather than laptop so I feel like it's waste.For MS office you need to contact samsung and they are good for not updating those details to you(trust me I'm running since last few weeks to enable it and at last I installed openoffice and uninstalled norton antivirus and installed with kaspersky which is 260rs only). Laptop is good one. But in order to run latest applications like vmware/autocad/maya/photoshop you need better ram,which will be more than 4GB.One good thing is it has anti reflection(wont act as a mirror)screen.
