Pros Large Flat Screen, Boots Quickly, excellent sound quality
Cons Could have a better software bundle but its adequate.
Summary I would definately reccomend this computer to anyone, I think some of the previous posters are not tech savy so maybe this pc is a bit too much for them. I think its excellent!!
Pros I found this Samsung 7 to be a breeze to work on. Even the kids loved it! Much nicer than the HP Omni 27. Economical to use to especially when the kids forget to switch it off.
Cons The keyboard could be more ergonomically designed next round.
Summary This Samsung will give the competitors a run for their money. I won't be surprise to find some negative comments by some competitors here!
Pros Simple Design, large screen, plenty of power, HDMI out was a nice feature as I use it as a kitchen / living room computer, so it's nice to set up the dual display.
Cons Awkward keyboard, poorly designed touch software, poorly designed toggle buttons.
Summary The touch software is way overrated in the editor's review. Things like the to-do list don't provide an easy way to synch with other services,additionally slightly annoying is the temperature wont change from celsius on the main paige of the touch software. Maybe it's me, but the only useful feature of the touch software was using it for google reader, and i've all but abaonded these features of the computer. I didn't buy the computer for the touch, so I can get over this.
The editor's review kind of mentions it, but the buttons are worthless and very frustrating. There is no volume control on the keyboard and one is included above the CD drive. These buttons are impossible to see without full lighting. They are also poorly designed: To turn the volume down, you first have to press the voume up button to toggle the volume control pop up, only then can you click the volume down button (which otherwise doubles as the brightness down button).
The supplied keyboard is nice to look at but is awkward to type on for me.
I've had no problems with the hardware and enjoy the speed of the computer. Although I've looked briefly, perhaps some of my tifs could be overcome with settings changes. Overall, I expected more from this computer and having owned the computer for 4 months, I would strongly disagree with the editors choice rating.
Pros Screen resolution and size of screen great. Portable.
Cons Computer was not as fast as I had expected. Touch screen got dirty very easy. Had to send in for service 1 month after purchase. They replaced motherboard and sent back with tape all over back of monitor and monitor loose on base.
Summary I was on line at Best Buy to pick up the computer after they replaced the motherboard. Another customer right behind me had the same computer and had problems with it booting up and USB problems. The computer was dirty and somebody had taped the back of the monitor and left a real mess. The monitor was loose on the base. I wanted a refund. Best Buy traded it out for a desktop HP. I would not recommend this computer to anyone based on my experience. Glad I bought it at a reputable business that would take it back.
Pros Great screen, ease of setup (great for tehcnophobic parent), fast enough. Sleek and beautiful design.
Cons Crap. Samsung and Best Buy go above and beyond to load junk which begets more junk if you are a relatively unknowing user. Keyboard and mouse plasticky, requires separate dongle.
Summary Nice kit which I got at a nice discount at Best Buy, but beware the crapware.
