by Indrajit Metya on 2013-10-13
* its very fast no doubt about
* it can smoke latest games in medium quality or even high .
* The ram is just 4gb but you can extend it who want more form it.i did it because i want performance.
* you may face the problem of switchable graphics(INTEL/AMD) but it can be solved easily.
*FOR BEST EXPERIENCE USE LESHCAT DRIVER FOR AMD SWITCHABLE GRAPHICS
*CANT SAY ABOUT BATTERY because its new and giving me much more then 3 hrs right now in normal condition while using ms word and ppt etc(im using Samsung's own preparatory software for power saving provided in cd with laptop) .Don't expect same backup while playing resource hungry games and while playing hd videos.
*mail me if you want to know abt this laptop.
>>THE ONLY THING I WANT TO SAY ABOUT IT THAT YOU CAN'T GET BETTER THEN THIS BELOW 40k
FEEL FREE TO ASK ask about this laptop firstname.lastname@example.org
i will definitely respond to your mails
Very good laptop for the price
by Aniket Mukherjee on 2013-07-10
I bought this laptop recently and I can say is that it is amazing for the price point.
•the turbo boost technology doesn't let it slow down even if your doing processor intensive task like unrar-ing or converting a video file in HD etc
•the 2 GB graphics card runs games on medium settings with ease and some with high settings (Fifa 13) but there are no frame rate stutters
•installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit architecture and it runs with no lag or hicups
•played games like Grid 2, Deadpool, Saints Row 3, Max Payne 3 and only Max Payne ran smoothly on med settings rest of them ran on high settings without any hesitation
•the anti glare screen is really good. Personally I use the Galaxy Note 2 and I have seen some good screens and this screen for a laptop is really good in broad daylight. Sometimes more legible than my Note 2 outdoors
•the dual layer DVD support is a nice bonus and although it does not come with Blu Ray support but dual layer support helps since most games ship with dual layer DVDs to save the quantity of CDs used
•free DOS so you do have to keep in mind the extra cash you have to spare for buying an OS unless you want to use something free like Ubuntu
•the color is dull and could've had more variants
•the battery back up is extremely poor with just two hours of backup that is ancient for today's standards it just shows what happens when you put gaming specs on a budget laptop. The battery is slaughtered
•the weight. It is a heavy device nothing like today's Lenovo Yoga devices or Mac book airs. You will seriously work out your biceps if you plan on holding and carrying this device with no bag
•the stereo speakers is not up to the mark. But I won't complain too much about that because what you do get for the price is more than enough
The laptop is a steal for the price point. I have used the apple ecosystem before coming to the windows one in terms of laptops so I had to purchase the expensive Mac books still one thing I will say is that this laptop is value for money. You win some with gaming specs that can run any game (not on highest setting but get the job done mind you) and you loose some with the battery taking a hit and the weight is nothing more than a dumbbell at the gym. But its recommend for the users who want high performance with the 64 bit architecture and will play the odd game now and then
This scores a 5.9 in the windows 7 performance index. Which is pretty good for a laptop of this range
Plzz dont buy this model ...

I cant tell you how much this laptop has agonised me. I bought this product on NOV 4 2014 and since then I have been running from pillar to posts to fix my laptop.It is an absolutely flawed product. Prior to this I have been a user of HP and Sony Vaio. But never have I suffered so much with any electronic product but this. My tale of agony goes as follows ----------------------- I recieved this product with an already flawed CMOS battery. As a result the clock was not working. Due to which many of my applications were not working. After numerous attempts I got it fixed. As Samsung had a policy of sending support at your doorstep, so I would get the service without taking too much trouble . However, not before calling them several times that they finally sent service. They had to change the whole motherboard. Now after changing the motherboard, which took them about a month or so, the problems even doubled. This time though they fixed the clock but it came with a heavy cost.Now a bundle of stuffs were dysfunctional. These were---- i) LAN port ii)USB slots iii) DVD drives iv)Bluetooth adapter and so on. I dont remember all of them...It seemed this time they used an even more faulty motherboard than the previous one. So I called them the cust care again and reported them about the issue once more. But now they have stopped providing service at door. So I asked them about the location of the service center .They told me the nearest service center is 120 km from my place. So I set out early morning from my place only to find that there was no service center there and it has been relocated from there since last 6 months or so. So I ran from pillar to post to find the address given to me by the security guard of the previous place. After reaching that address there was no service center there either. Now I was forwarded to another address as the service center has been relocated from there as well since last 2 months. Meanwhile I also called the Samsung Customer Care regarding this.The lady on the other side after hearing me told that she would call me back and she never did . Nevertheless somehow I reached the customer care and guess what the diagnosis was--- the motherboard was faulty yet again.So they took my laptop and changed the motherboard yet again and finally I recieved my laptop after repeated hankering after them after more than a month.Due to which I suffered enormously as I am a sales person and I have to report through email everyday. So finally I recieved my laptop on 17th June 2014 i.e yesterday. But the cycle of my misery continued as the clock is not working now. I am almost sure they they would change the motherboard once more. Meanwhile I am running out of my warranty period and if it suffers any more glitches then I am screwed. I have taken my time and effort to narrate the whole incident so no man should suffered the fate as I have.
Very good experience!!!

Been using this product for 5-6 months now. Excellent battery backup. Works fine as expected, except the clock. Believe its the same CMOS battery issue as mentioned by Pinak Das. I thought it was just me. But it seems many others too are facing this issue. However, incorrect laptop clock hardly matters to me :)
Very Good Laptop for every need

Very Good Buy- Good for Gaming/Performance
by Avishek De on 2014-11-13
This is one amazingly powerful laptop given its price range. It packs with it a 3rd generation Core i5 processor with turbo boost which is awesome for resource intensive tasks including gaming. It has a 4gb ram inbuilt but can be expandable to 8gb because it has one slot free. It also a packs a 2gb ati radeon hd graphics processor so u can play most of the recent games with decent frame rates. The look and feel is quite good and the island type keyboard is a beauty in itself... You will simply fall in love typing with this keyboard. (I have compared this with Dell and HP but this keyboard structure is the best). The non-reflecting screen allows you to view the screen easily from any angle at any lighting conditions, unlike most other laptops, which reflects light and makes viewing difficult, and impossible in sunlight. It also has an optical disc drive inbuilt so you dont have to worry about those gaming dvds.. CONS- Since it doesnt have any preloaded OS, hence Samsung doesnt provide software support for this machine. Hence it is highly possible that you might have driver related issues in Windows 8/8.1. In that case you might have to download drivers for other similar Samsung models in order to make them work. Also, Battery is a bit weak. It will last around 3 hours with normal work, around 1-1.5 hour with resource intensive tasks.
Good Buy in such a Low Price thanks FK

Performance is ok with Window 7 and Window 8.1 installed and worked for 3 months in both OS, in Window 7 its heatup some how, but after upgrading to window 8.1 its cool now.
Speed is Amazing in Graphic Work and in Game Playing.
Best Result with Window 8.1.
