Reviews for the Samsung 900X3D-A01US

80% Samsung Series 9 900X3D review
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Samsung Series 9 900X3D is an impressive laptop, but cutting the price doesn’t quite erase the feeling that the rest of the laptop feels very dated now, particularly in the face of Intel’s fourth generation of mobile processors and their improved graphics performance. At this price, the newer Samsung Series 7 Ultra is a much better buy.

80% Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D is an attractive 13-inch laptop that is easy to cast as Samsung’s alternative to the MacBook Air. However, it shouldn’t be dismissed as being all about style. Its combo of low weight, thin frame, a matt screen and SSD storage makes it incredibly portable and convenient. This helps to offset that it doesn’t offer a great amount of power for the price.

Despite some issues, we believe the NP900X4D is a good buy, if not a truly excellent one. You won't walk out of the shop feeling like you've been ripped off, but you certainly won't feel like you've got the steal of the century, either.

83% Samsung Series 9 900X3D review

Much has changed since the Series 9 emerged a year ago. The competition is much stiffer, and the 1,600 x 900 display now looks average compared to the Full HD display of the Dell XPS 13. But, for only £834, the Series 9 900X3D gets the essentials spot on. With gorgeous looks, great build and superb ergonomics, it’s more than worthy of a Recommended award.

Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D
Source: Liliputing English
A year ago most ultrabooks sold for around $1000 and up. Today you can find models priced as low as $600 or as high as $1500. The Samsung Series 9 sits somewhere in the middle — and the model I purchased offers pretty strong performance for the price. It doesn’t provide a no-compromise experience. The battery isn’t replaceable. The RAM and storage aren’t upgradeable. You need dongles to connect an external monitor or Ethernet cable.

Series:

At the Beginning of 2011, Samsung introduced the Series 9 with two new devices, which celebrated their debut at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in Las Vegas, shortly CES. Simultaneously Samsung has begun to change the series-discriptions and their sorting. In addition to the Ultra-Thin Series 9, Samsung provides the Series 2, 3 (B2C), 4 and 6 for Business-Notebooks, the Series 5 for devices with Google Chrome OS and also the new Series 7 Chronos plus Series 7 Gamer for multimedia- respectively gaming-users.

Back to Samsungs Series 9: After the introduction of the Samsung Series 9 900X3A (13.3 inch) and the smaller 900X1B Subnotebook (11.6 inch) the hype was relatively large, because apparently they seem to be the first available alternative to Apples MacBook Air series, which runs on Apples Mac OS X. High-quality displays and a chassis made of lightweight and sturdy Duraluminium are two key-assets of Samsung Series 9 devices. In comparison to the german retail-market, Samsung provides both devices to their US-Costumers from the beginning. The MSRP located between 1199.99 and 1649.99 US-Dollar.

Major advantages in our reviews of the Samsung Series 9 900X3A and 900X1B are the good battery life, the rapid SSD storage, the convincing display, the LED-Backlit keyboard and furthermore the attractive design. Disadvantages are the limited expandability, the port-positioning, the missing dockingport and the long battery charge time. On average, the review-ratings are above 80 percent and thereby in a good rating range.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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


2537M: Power saving ULV processor clocked at 1.4-2.3 GHz due to Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 900 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.1 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 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.
