SAMSUNG Laptop Series 3 NP305E5A-A03US AMD A6-Series A6-3420M (1.5 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6520G 15.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great display, look, feel, overall performance! I paid only $399 on sale so this was, I feel, I screaming value!

Cons: HDD died after 3 weeks!

Other Thoughts: OK, the HDD died. It happens. I had to send the laptop in...I'd rather they sent me a new HDD but at least it was replaced with no cost to me. I added another 4GB of ram (total=8GB) set the CUP to run at 2.8 all the time and at a LOWER voltage with K10! (AMD sets the voltages way too high initially) disabled most of the Aero interface and get a Windows Experience of 5.9 (3D graphics=6.5, CPU=6.6 and ram=7.3) Replacing the HDD with a 128GB SSD (I have 1TB NAS) and will sell this brand new 500GB.
