Reviews for the Samsung 305E7A-S04DE

Samsung Series 3 – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
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.

AMD Radeon HD 6640G2: Dual Graphics (asymmetrical CrossFire) combination of a dedicated Radeon HD 6450M or 6470M and a 6620G APU graphics card (in the processor core of the A-Series).

17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
