Reviews for the Samsung 530U4B-S01AU

80% Can an ultrabook be an all-rounder?
Source: APC Mag English
Premium form is where it falters slightly. The metal screen backing and palm-rests felt great, and the other fibreglass surfaces felt fine. Unfortunately, the 14in (1,366 x 768-pixel) matte screen had slightly washed-out colours and ordinary viewing angles. The screen hinge also had an annoying tendency to stick slightly, with strong resistance during opening. And while loud, the speakers were of ordinary quality, as was the webcam’s recording quality at 720p.

70% Samsung Series 5 Ultra Notebook Review
Source: T Break English
The Series 5 Ultra is a decent notebook, but it’s certainly not an Ultrabook. The unit may be sleek, but it’s not Ultrabook-sleek, despite what Samsung claims. The device also feels much heavier than other Ultrabooks, in part due to the included optical drive and HDD. If you’re in the market for a decent notebook that offers a number of connectivity options and acceptable performance, then this is the one for you. If you’re shopping for a genuine Ultrabook, then there are much better options to look at.

75% Samsung NP530U4B Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Samsung NP530U4B is priced at 54,390 (MOP). At this price tag, it competes with the likes of Wipro e.go Aero Ultra and the HP Pavilion dm4-3010tx. We weren’t overly happy with the build quality of the Wipro and the 530U is the clear winner amongst the two. In comparison with the HP Pavilion dm4-3010tx, the 530U props up with a better GPU. To sum it up, if you have that budget and you want a slim notebook without compromising on any connectivity features, the Samsung 530U is your best bet for now.

75% Samsung Notebook Series 5 ULTRA (530U4B-S01AU)
Source: Good Gear Guide English
If you want an Ultrabook that has a lot of features -- including a built-in DVD burner -- then Samsung's Series 5 is for you. It also includes a dual-band Wi-Fi adapter, two USB 3.0 ports and HDMI. It's a comfortable notebook to use, but it doesn't have a backlit keyboard and its screen isn't of high quality.

Comment

AMD Radeon HD 7550M: Same chip as the Radeon HD 6630M, but only 64 bit memory interface and only 5 SIMDs (=400 Shader) activated. Differently clocked versions with DDR3 oder GDDR5 memory.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


2467M: Power saving ULV processor clocked at 1.6-2.3 GHz due to Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1150 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 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.
