Reviews for the Samsung 530U4B-A01US

70% Samsung Series 5 Ultra (NP530U4B-A01US)
Source: PC Mag English
Just as it has a hybrid storage system, the Samsung Series 5 Ultra is something of a hybrid ultrabook: Its 14-inch screen and built-in optical drive will appeal to users who find 13.3-inch, DVD-less ultrabooks too limiting—although we can't help thinking that a lot of those people would be served by an ultrabook plus a $50 USB DVD drive for occasional use. Meanwhile, its weight saving over machines like the Lenovo IdeaPad U400 or Editors' Choice Dell Inspiron 14z , some of which offer better performance, is only about half a pound at most. The bottom line is that the Series 5 Ultra is an appealing system, but a niche one.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.7 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
