Best Laptop I ever hadPosted .
Right after the box, replaced slow HDD with nice SSD (240GB), and Downgraded to Win 7. Having it for 2 month now, no problems at all. Battery life is great up to 7 hrs.I would recommend this to a friend

Doesn't Work!!!!!Posted .
Guess I got a lemon. I purchased this laptop less than 48 hours ago, and it's already unusable. I got this computer, because the guy in the store told me that it was the best value for what I was looking for. It was a little more than I intended to spend, but I figured I'd be better off spending a little more now, than buying a new computer in a year or so when I got sick of whatever cheaper model I was looking at. Apparently, I was wrong about that. As mentioned above, I've had the computer for less than 48 hours, of which I've probably only USED the computer for maybe a total of four hours. The initial set-up seemed easy enough. I dislike Windows 8, but I figured I'd get used to it eventually, and I didn't have any problems setting up the basics the first night I had the computer. The second day/night I had the computer, I still didn't have any problems (but the only thing I had time to use it for was to check the weather and my email). This morning is when everything went south. I bought a couple of things online and then attempted to install the pre-loaded lo jack software. The computer froze during the installation process, and CTRL+ALT+DEL did nothing to remedy the situation. So I turned the computer off. When I turned it back on it started to load and then said something to the effect of "Configuring Windows 100%" and that's as far as it goes. It freezes at that point. Unfortunately, today is Thanksgiving, so I can't return the computer today. Hopefully, even with tomorrow being Black Friday, I'll be able to get a replacement, but we'll see how that goes...No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great machine, slight issue with componentsPosted .
I so wanted to be able to give this a 5 star rating, and if I could do 4.5 I would. It is so close to being perfect for my uses; but the things that fall short unfortunately fall glaringly short. I have had this unit for nearly 3 weeks and am still working through the newness of it, but have found mostly love for the machine with only a few issues to kill the mood. The unit is awesome on the surface... nice bright 1600x900 display. Not quite full HD quality, but then again this is not a home theater system so lets stick to apples and leave the oranges for other Samsung products. The lighted keyboard is also a godsend for my tired old eyes that have trouble with slightly not black letters on solid black keys that so many other PC makers think is the cool and trendy standard today. The CPU and memory are awesome, I have not even had to upgrade the 8GB that comes standard yet, something I expected to have to do right away. The sound quality is great for a laptop PC, maybe not so great if you are expecting your home theater sound, but again apples, not pears! Windows 8 is a steep learning curve but that is a Mocrosoft issue, not a Samsung one or reflective of the hardware. Just grin and bear it until you get used to it and curse Redmond in the meantime. Now for the true Samsung problems: First the ambient light sensor is horrible, and as yet I have found no way to disable it. Move from a brightly lit area to anything it considers dark and the display "auto-dims" about 50%. This totally destroys the greatness of the otherwise perfect bright display. If you do the rate your PC test you will also be disappointed that the HDD scores only a 5.9, and thus lowers the overall PC rating to match. Everything else is in the high 7's but this antiquated 5400 RPM HDD just sucks the life out of the unit. I will probably have to replace it with an SSD before i will need to upgrade memory, bummer! The last issue I have with the unit is a weird SW driver issue; the lighted keyboard driver sometimes takes 3-5 minutes to load and actively light the keyboard. Other times it loads right away and within 10 seconds the keyboard is nice and bright. Weird, but not a deal breaker. Overall this is a great machine that easily compares to units costing twice as much more, but it is not perfect and needs a few tweeks to make it a true 5 star machine.I would recommend this to a friend

Amazing Laptop bad Hard DrivePosted .
Good Performance is amazing for the thickness if the laptop. It is a quad core processor and a midrange graphics processor. It is more than capable of playing modern PC games. Battery life is also amazing I get 5-6 hours of light use like web browsing. I also got 3 hours of battery life watching Netflix. This was with the screen at half brightness and the volume around 70% with about 10% of the battery left over. All of these times are with the battery life extender turned on so the battery only charges to 80%. The build quality is also good. The screen is aluminum and the top of the body is also aluminum. The bottom of the computer is plastic bit it still feels solid. This computer is also smaller and thinner than most 15” laptops. I love the Chiclet and backlit keyboard. Not only are the symbols are lit but the edge if the keys are too giving a nice soft light. The keys also feel good with a decent amount of tactile feedback. The touchpad is large and is very responsive with good multi touch. The gestures from the edges of the touch pad don’t always work but are useful when they do. Neutral The screen is very bright, has good colors, and has a decent resolution. I wish it was 1080p but it is better than similar laptops. The viewing angles are disappointing but are normal for a TN screen. Bad The hard drive is a disappointment. It is large, 1TB, but it makes the computer slow because it’s 5400RPM and doesn't show off the power of this laptop. The express cache helps speed up some things like start up but also slows down other programs. I replaced the hard drive with a 120GB SSD and now the computer flies. I wish they had chosen a faster hard drive even if they had to sacrifice space it think it would have been a good choice Overall I would recommend this laptop it is great and if the computer is slow try turning off the express cache.I would recommend this to a friend

Great laptop for the all around userPosted .
This is my first laptop that i got to pick out myself and i love it. Its slim and light enough to go anywhere but at the same time it doesnt skimp on power. With an i7 processor and 8 gb of ram its got speed not even seen in certain desktops and the option of adding up to 32 gb is great and the convient port on the bottom makes it amazingly easy to put your old tower out of commission. Also the the nvidia graphics card is not only superb but it uses dedicated graphics which means you can upgrade as your needs change this is one of the few laptops that I've seen that does this. The only drawback is the preloaded windows 8 which for me was ripe with bugs the store wouldn't update then certain apps wouldn't open. However that issue is with windows not the laptop and I'm sure it will be fixed via update ( a google search revealed that this is not an uncommon problem) My advice get this laptop but maybe wait for windows 8 to get better plus with the release of the 2013 model the price will only go down.I would recommend this to a friend

Awesome machine (please ignore the nuts!)Posted .
Wow, I have to say I'm really scratching my head at the negative reviews posted for the NP700Z5C -- I've been on the market for a new laptop since May, and so would say I've done an unusual amount of research before buying. The bottom line is this is an awesome machine, and I really cannot explain the 1- and 2-star reviews. Samsung made a few lemons? User error? Unfamiliarity with Win 8? I really can't say, but many of the critical comments just don't have the sound of truthiness to me. OK, rant over and now on to the review. Pros - Exceptional build quality. A MacBook Pro for hundreds less. - Amazing components -- Core i7, 8GB of 1600MHz DDR RAM, a 1TB HDD, the respectable NVIDIA 640m, 1600x900 matte display, ALL FOR $1000. The only competition for less (Acer, Asus, and Sony) are plastic chassis with either lesser components or lots of minor issues (e.g., build quality, heat management, battery life, screen resolution, etc.). - Excellent battery life - easily 6+ hours of web/word processing. - Stays cool and quiet. - Pretty light @5.3lbs for a 15.6" build. - Breathtaking backlit keyboard. - Clear bright display (see Cons) Cons (or maybe just "not quite Pros") - Poor viewing angle (and color contrast) on the display -- BUT the S02UB has a new panel that is MUCH better than previous versions of the NP700Z5C. The 17" NP700Z7C is still the winner, but the S02UB is much improved. - OK video card -- by spring of 2013 the 640m will be a bit outdated, but I still suspect that faster graphics cards will bring more heat issues (like the 650m and 660m). For a near ultrabook chassis, it's a reasonable compromise between graphics power and heat. - 5400RPM drive -- not an issue or concern for me, but some unruly owners quibble about it. I may replace the HDD with an SSD down the road, and move it into an optical drive caddy. - PSU issues? -- some owners of similar models have raised the issue that the power brick is not strong enough to charge the machine during heavy use. Again, not an issue for me but there it is. I'm not EVEN going to touch on issues related to the OS -- since Win 8 is a new option, it makes no sense to put it in the review UNLESS (a) the owner really knows their way around the OS, and (b) a service pack or two has come out. Until then, I wish reviewers would stick to the features that matter most about the machine, e.g., appearance, build, cost vs. performance, etc. By the way, I have no problems whatsoever with the touchpad. I have a strong suspicion that most of the complaints here are due to owners not knowing how to update the Elan driver, and how to modify the settings (e.g., touch sensitivity, cursor speed, multifinger gestures, etc.). Really, I think it works perfectly. Bottom line: for about a grand there is no machine that offers the same amount of processing power, portability, and beautiful style at the same price point. Remember that Best Buy offers a 30-day guarantee -- if the machine locks up or dies, JUST TAKE IT BACK.I would recommend this to a friend

Dogfooding Win 8Posted .
I chose this computer as it came with Win 8 and I need to use it for work and school. I needed to see what applications would work and which ones causes issues. I loaded my astronomy apps on it, my statistics, and school app, my Office apps, etc. I was able to transition to WIn 8 fairly easy, but there are some odd things, like no start button. Now I just hit the windows app key and start typing the app name and it opens. That seemed odd at first but I got used to it. Sucks if you don't know the name of the app though. The battery life is great, screen seems a lot dimmer than my last Samsung laptop which lasted 3 years and some days, and is still running, but the battery does not keep a charge, so it is a desk top replacement now. No VGA port, for a second monitor, so you will need to choose an adapter carefully. HDMI works, but you will have to select the correct audio out device each time you switch. A small TV or monitor with HDMI in would work, but I am reusing my existing monitors. I like the silver finish as it hides fingerprints. It is thinner than my last Laptop, and lighter. The feel is solider than some of the other laptops and I am a return Samsung user. I initially bought it to use WiDi but have not purchased the needed peripherals. May be my next TV will support it.I would recommend this to a friend

Fantastic high end laptop for mid range pricePosted .
I was really looking at the ultrabooks for my next laptop. I commute and I wanted something portable. However, when I found that anything with more than mediocre specs was $2000 or more, I looked into a standard laptop, and this is perfect. Even for a non-ultrabook, this is a very thin laptop, and is VERY close in size to the larger ultrabooks from Asus etc. It's about the same weight as my old 11" Alienware m11x. It is a VERY competent machine, however. True quad-core CPU with hypoer threading means 8 logical cores for crazy multitasking, 8gb of ram and a very decent graphics card. It WILL play games well at the native resolution, but you might have to turn down some of the higher end settings on the newest games. (Mechwarrior Online, based on the Crysis 2 engine, cannot run with everything maxed, for example, but the Modern Warfare games have no trouble.) The only weak point is the screen. While the hinge is well made and the LED screen has very little bezel (shrinking the overall size of the computer even more), the screen's brightness is thoroughly 'meh' and the ambient light sensor that adjusts screen brightness is a tad too aggressive. But it's a clear screen with a almost-matte finish, and has a legitimate resolution of 1600X900. I looked at 1080p screens at 15" and Windows does not scale things well at that pixel density. The only thing I wish it had was a SSD. 1TB of hard drive space is fantastic, but at the end of teh day, it's probably too much for a mobile system. While the computer does have a cache that is supposed to help, its speed capabilities are a fraction of more modern, and modest SSDs. That said, boot times are reasonable and programs start quickly. I will be looking into cracking it open to see if there is an extra HDD slot for an SSD upgrade down the line. Highly recommended!I would recommend this to a friend
Q: Questiongames?i am really thinking about getting this laptop, i was wondering though how well does this laptop handle games? like call of duty, assassins creed, crysis... will it handle modern games well? thanks!! :)
Asked by Anonymous.
- A:Answer It kills games. All of them. Eats them for breakfast. Skyrim. BF3. Doesn't matter. COD. The Samsung laughs at modern games. :) Seriously, gameplay at 1600x900 will give you 60+FPS with about 70C on the 640m and 80C on the CPU. It's all good.

Q: QuestionDoes this have a Windows 7 version model?I like this laptop except the fact that it comes with Windows 8. I like the backlit keyboard, numpad, cd/dvd rom, 8GB Ram, 1GB graphics card, i7 quad core processor, slim and overall design, screen size, and of course, the price tag thats less than $1000. Is there anyway I can get this same laptop and price with Windows 7 instead?
Asked by Rob.
- A:Answer Yes, as a matter of fact Best Buy currently offers both models -- with Win7 (S01UB, left) or Win8 (S02UB, right). There are some minor but important differences between the models, including the fact that the newer S02UB has the more powerful NVIDIA 640m graphics card. I think it is also a bit cheaper. I would recommend the Win8 version, though it may be a few weeks (or even a couple months) before everything is working perfectly -- it wouldn't surprise me if both Microsoft and Samsung have to send out a few new drivers and patches. Of course if you have a Win7 disk handy you can always install that on the S02UB!
