Reviews for the Samsung 305E7A-S04DE
All things considered, the Samsung Series 3 notebook 305E7A is a good all-rounder for anyone needing a notebook for general use. There are areas (screen quality, gaming prowess, battery life) where it falls down, but not so far that casual users would be disappointed. But a moderately capable 17-inch notebook is still a good deal at 550 euros.

Samsungs Serie 3 305E7A S04 ist ein schickes 17,3 Zoll Allround-Notebook, welches mit einem guten Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis lockt und mit den Treiber- und Performance-Schwächen von AMDs Llano Plattform zu kämpfen hat. Der dünne Displayrahmen, die Instant-On Technologie, ordentliche Eingabegeräte und vor allem das matte Finish für das Display bieten gute Argumente für einen Kauf.
