Reviews for the Samsung 700Z5A-S04AU

70% Premium in almost every way… Samsung Series 7 Chronos review
Source: APC Mag English
Is the Chronos a truly premium notebook? On the one hand it has a great screen, low weight and an admirable set of hardware. On the other hand, the touchpad positioning and considerable use of plastic take a lot of the shine off. There’s stiff competition in the premium notebook market segment and while the Chronos makes a valiant effort, it’s just not quite there yet.

75% Samsung Series 7 Chronos (NP700Z5A-S04AU) notebook
Source: Good Gear Guide English
There's no doubt in our minds that the Samsung Series 7 Chronos is a good laptop. The problem is, it could have been great. If only it had a touchpad with better accuracy and responsiveness, and perhaps a screen with wider viewing angles. Apart from those issues, we like the design of this notebook; its keyboard and battery life are excellent and its feature-set (including the slot-loading DVD drive) is useful.
