Are Samsung Laptops worth buying..?

by Arunkmr / October 10, 2011 10:50 PM PDT

I bought my Dell laptop during the last summer and i am happy about buying it, and a friend of mine bought a Toshiba laptop with the same configuration but a second generation processor and it cost him a little more.. but recently another friend of mine says that he ordered a Samsung laptop of the same price but of a 750 GB hard disk, 6 GB RAM and everything else remains the same.. I checked with other brands and came to know that only samsung was offering this configuration at this price in my region... So are Samsung laptops worth the pay..?

Price Comparisions:
Dell: Rs 37500 (DOS,i5 450-M,4 GB Ram,500 GB Hdd)
Toshiba:Rs 42500 (Windows 7 home premium,i5 Second generation,4 GB Ram,500 GB Hdd)
Samsung:Rs 40000 (Windows 7 home premium,i5 Second generation,6 GB Ram,750 GB Hdd)

Samsung laptops are getting pretty good rating.

Samsung did have a non-compete ccontract with Dell that must of expired a couple of years ago so they are new to the USA. LG also has a non-compete contract in the USA with Lenova.

The Samsungs with the aluminum case are very nice. And the series 9 are sought after by those that need such.

Samsung is one of the few companies that does manufacture their own laptops & laptop components. This results in a lower overhead and reduced prices.

i would never recommend samsung in my life, very worst, they never worry about quality,all what they are looking for is just only more margin, i was really really f**ked up by using samsung laptop,
Most Common problems i faced,
Really dead slow, samsung core i5 is less speed than sony vaio p4 processor
USB Port Inactive, (am a control system programmer, i used to connect processors through usb port, they used to go inactive much frequently, so we have to restart whole system again)
etc... and infinity

so dont waste your money and get f**ked up !!!!!!!!!

And it was fine. But we did have to go into windows, some control panel and turn off the sleep options. Some folk I encounter call that a maker's bug but here the samsungs are doing fine.

Just last month we picked up a few rv515's and what a deal. Fast enough for dad.
