I've had one of these for about 9 months now, and I'm very happy with it. Battery life is really, really good. The CPU is plenty for any task I throw at it. Trackpad, keyboard, etc are all good too. Sound is good enough for listening to music or watching a film.

The high-res display is very good, although 1920x1080 on a 15" display means that things often look small. Windows can increase font sizes by 25 or 50%, but this can mess up some other things, and graphics often don't look good when increased in size.

Only issue I've had is a bug with the display brightness - switching on from Standby, it occasionally gets stuck on 100% brightness, requiring a reboot, which is frustrating.

Final point: upgrading hard drive is not actually that difficult. I found a YouTube video that told me what to do. It just requires patience and a gentle touch.

All in all, very happy with this laptop. Recommended.

Hi. I got exactly this laptop. I want exchange this qwertz keyboard to UK qwerty version (US keyboard have another shape of enter) I found the keyboard on ebay, supposedly compatible model NP770Z5E, but I'm not sure if it will work properly. Whether the type designation S01DE/S01PL/S02FR ... has some effect on the compatibility?  Question is simple: Does anyone have any experience with replacing the keyboard in this model ?

I have to agree with too many of the comments here: This review of this awesome Samsung Series 7 is good if not fulfilling, leaving too many pertinent questions unanswered; but why does NOTEBOOCHECK   :-\  insist upon calling this a casual gamers device for casual gamers when this Samsung clearly rings the 'GAMER'S BELLS AND WHISTLES!'   :)

Hello i have the NP880Z5E - touchscreen, black but i have mager fps issues i turned silent mode off, pluggid my pc in and set the game on high preority. i got max 60fps on minecraft all max, fullscreen but i should be getting 112fps :S same with simcity with everything tuned down i get 40fps but u should be getting 80. i did update my AMD driver to 13.6 beta2 and then turned it back to 13.1(also my intel driver is now at the begging version when you buy this laptop) that helped with some games like skyrim before i cant go above 21fps(diddnet matter what settings i picked) but now in 13.1 i get 45fps on high. i also tryd reinstalling java, windows updates etc.
and my dxdiag says that there is a error with direct3D but when i tried to reinstall directx11 it says that i already have the most updated version. only BF3 runs pretty good (dx9) but better at the 13.6 driver. and i get only 10fps on "3DMark11Workload1" with is weard i think
i got insurande for this laptop so i dont want to overclock it but still at the stuck settings is should be doing better than this dont you think?

I am just curious how is the sound quality of the 8W JBL sound system compared to the Dynaudio in the MSI GX60/GT60/GT70?
Also, I heard that the NP550P7C-S05UK model has 4W JBL plus 5W subwoofer. I cannot find its review anywhere. How is that sound quality compared?

I think the fact that it doesn't come with an SSD can actually be used as an advantage because the price now becomes significantly lower. All you have to do is buy a Samsung 840 Pro SSD and install it in and boom - you have a really fast and powerful laptop at still a very affordable price range and at least $1,000 cheaper than a MacBook with similar specs.

As for the comment regarding the back cover not being that easy to open, I disagree. It is relatively simple and the whole process can be done in a few hours. I made a small guide showing how simple it is to clone the HDD to the SSD, open up this laptop and install the SSD. Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnM7DcgQcDk
Thank you so much, man, I just need it

I really wish two of the most stupid trends introduced in recent years would come to an end. Namely:
1. 16:9 displays when 16:10 was wide enough.

2. Click-pads without proper mouse buttons.


Address these 2 Samsung and use SSDs and we might be talking.

SSD can't be erased so easily so not so good for data security.

Does it contain phthalates, or BFR's? Does the power supply?

I got mine (S02SE) with a 256 SSD and I'm absolutely in love with this laptop! I play SC2 with high frame rates and great graphics, work for hours under the sun and it's damn easy to carry around. I retired my one year old HP workstation (which cost almost twice what Samsung is charging for the series 7 Chronos) and I got better performance and almost half the weight ... amazing!
