3 out of 5 eggssecond review

Pros: with 16GB of ram and a SSD drive is awesome

Cons: So I loaded win 7 like most people would and found support issues.

Samsung does not have drivers available. Only file is their update program that downloads everything for you but u need to be online for that and I was missing drivers for WiFi and Lan

So got around it but after I finished installing all available drivers from Samsunn I still have some things that dont work like FN brightness control and on screen display

3 out of 5 eggsNice laptop BUT

Pros: Sleek design, good screen, better quality than the cheap Asus laptops that are out now.

Cons: 4GB of memory is insufficient in Win 8. You think laptop has booted but 20 seconds later you hear the Windows welcome sound.
YouTube at 1080p Full screen choppy even in "Performance mode"
Connected JBL Charge - wireless Bluetooth speaker to this laptop. Worked once. Now device manager shows that it cannot start the device and its not working. Tried updating drivers but shows they are current. Tried uninstalling and it wont. Cant get it to work.
AND the biggest issue is:
Samsung saved $0.02 by not making HDD accessible so now whoever wants to upgrade to SSD will VOID their warranty according to Samsung support.

Other Thoughts: Ordered 16GB of memory. Should fix the issues
SSD would be nice but I don't want to void my warranty

4 out of 5 eggsReplacement Received - Very Happy

Pros: -Excellent performance, especially with 16 GB Memory upgrade (used G. Skill 8 GB x 2 - N82E16820231582)
-Still in the first phase of testing with Windows 8, but very satisfied (installed StartMenu8 to disable "Metro").
-Touch Screen is smooth, but I still do not intend to use it.

-NovaBench Results: (581)

Cons: -Either the system was repaired or it was tested before it shipped out (few noticeable spots or markings).

Other Thoughts: -Overall I am satisfied with $752 (total price with tax) and $140 for the 16 GB Memory, so ~ $900 for a lightweight mobile system that can run VMs is a steal.

Deducted 1 Egg due to the Quality Control or carrier mishandling from the first defective ATIV 5 received.

This is the replacement to the first ATIV 5 that had a defective touch screen. I still need to put VMware Player to test how well it does with Virualization.

Also, I intend on testing two other hard drives with FreeBSD or OpenBSD and Fedore Linux. I'll create another Review when that testing is complete.

1 out of 5 eggs1st Defective Newegg Product

Coming Soon!

Pros: As far as performance, it's everything I expected out of the box with an i5 CPU. Waiting for the replacement and the 16 GB upgrade to test out how well it does with Virtualization. It's on the heavier side for an Ultrabook (4.3 lbs.) but 1 lbs. lighter than my Samsung R540 and work Macbook Pro.

-RMA process was painless as usual (have done it a few times for my employer). -Works fine with the Touch Screen disabled.
-Prepaid UPS Return Label was provided.
-Arrived quick with 2-Day Shoprunner Account (free with my AMEX)
-After RMA Department approves the replacement, 2-Day Shoprunner shipping will be process.
-Samsung Support was adequate.

Cons: -Touch Screen is defective: I completed the initial setup, then the Windows 8 Metro screen was out of control (**SEE VIDEO**)
-Having to wait for UPS to return the product.
-Having to wait for the RMA Department to approve the replacement.

Other Thoughts: Tried using Recovery to see if it was a driver issue, but the problem persists. I don't plan to use the Touch Screen, but I can't live with the price paid and have any part of the laptop defective.

The product was delivered by OnTrac. The external and internal boxes didn't seem to be damaged or mishandled.

5 out of 5 eggsnice

Pros: nice look, fast laptop. very happy with purchase. nice keyboard size, love the backlit keyboard.

Cons: nothing on laptop, but there is definately a learning curve with windows 8. at 32, I feel like I'm getting too old to learn new tech. lol

Other Thoughts: needed a replacement to my netbook that crapped out. decided to go a little on the higher end, hoping to get better longevity out of this laptop.
