Reviews for the Samsung N510 black

87% Review Samsung N510 Ion Netbook | Notebookcheck
Pocket Player. Nvidia's ION chip set has already provided for a sensation for quite a time and it now finds its way into the Samsung N510 netbook. The combination of Intel's Atom CPU and Nvidia chip set with integrated Geforce 9400M graphic is supposed to especially speed up the graphic performance and open the range for further application fields. What this very promising combination is capable of and for whom this purchase might be of interest is clarified in the following review.
80% Samsung N510 Premium
Source: Digital Versus English
This Premium version of the N510 doesn't actually add much to the first version. It's still a good quality netbook but the performance of the ION chipset is still limited by the processor. The 2 GB of RAM give a bit of additional comfort of use in office doc tasks. That said, the change over to the glossy panel is a big no-no as far as we're concerned (matte on the N510). The Premium version is no longer that competitive opposite other ION netbooks.

Netbooks were never intended to be much more than cheap and cheerful ultraportables for people who didn’t need — or couldn’t afford — anything more powerful, but their huge popularity has manufacturers to look at ways to widen their appeal with better specifications. The Samsung N510 is a great not-so-little netbook that’s well-suited to log spells of use, but we hoped for better performance from the NVIDIA ION graphics.

Samsung N510 Review
Source: Netbookchoice English
The Samsung N510 presents two firsts for the company. It is their first 11.6-inch netbook along with being its first model equipped with the Nvidia ION chipset. We really like the 11.6-inch form factor, Samsung has managed to squeeze this larger panel into a chassis not too much bigger or heavier than some 10-inch netbooks. The extra real estate provided by the 1366 x 768 resolution display is welcome and not too small to cause discomfort over longer periods.

Even though it's taken its sweet time coming to market, we like the Samsung N510. This 11.6-inch netbook combines souped up graphics with very good audio quality. Some may prefer the Ion-powered HP Mini 311 ($583 when similarly configured), which offers comparable battery life to the N510 but a slicker design. The $499 ASUS Eee PC 1201N, which features a fast dual-core Atom processor, is also a compelling value--if you're willing to live with less than 4 hours of juice. But the $599 N510 is worth the premium for its superior ergonomic comfort and relatively strong endurance.

Source: PC Advisor English
At the heart of practically every netbook beats a slow but steady Intel Atom, chosen for its worthy low power requirements. Now Samsung has, with nVidia’s help, opened up the multimedia possibilities in the Samsung N510, making the first Ion netbook; an inbetweener, yes, but one with graphics credibility. The presence of a larger, high-resolution and matt-finish LCD display further ticks boxes on the checklist for assembling a truly serviceable compact laptop. If you can stretch to the extra £100, the Samsung N510 delivers.

Source: Reg Hardware English
You don't have to dig too deep to see that the diversity of Samsung's netbook range is a case of flattering to deceive. Sure, there are plenty of them, but the differences are essentially peripheral and cosmetic with all bar the NC20 having 10.1in screens and the usual netbook-norm Intel Atom chippery. An excellent large-screen netbook and arguably the first Samsung netbook worth the price tag. Could be worth waiting a few weeks for the Windows 7 version, though.

Samsung’s N510 computer is halfway between a netbook and a laptop. It uses an Intel Atom processor, but it’s an Atom N280 model, a step up from the N270 found in similar computers.

Like a netbook, it is missing a CD or DVD drive, instead using the space saved to reduce its overall size. It’s a slimline device and easy to carry around, but it’s larger than most of its rivals as it has a 12in widescreen rather than 10in. The large screen and good graphics are attractive, but the battery life is sparse.

80% Samsung N510 - 11.6in nVidia ION Netbook Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Netbook technology has been moving at a relatively glacial pace thus far, but while Intel is still tinkering with Pine Trail (its second generation netbook platform that's due early next year), nVidia has been attempting to muscle in with its Ion platform. It addresses Atom's main issue, its poor integrated graphics, but until now we've only seen Ion in nettops like the Acer Aspire Revo. If a netbook with HD video credentials is what you've been craving, the Samsung N510 is an excellent example. It's a little on the expensive side, though, so it's worth checking competing offerings before settling.

Samsung brings the Nvidia Ion to the masses. The Samsung N510 is the first Nvidia Ion-powered netbook to hit UK shores. Along with its great design and usability, the machine provides the kind of graphical power normally associated with much larger laptops. The Samsung N510 has set a new benchmark in netbook performance and, combined with its excellent build quality and usability, makes a truly compelling choice for those after a powerful and portable netbook.

Want a netbook that can play HD content? With a mid-level price, the Samsung N510 strikes a good balance between performance, portability and comfort. Its large keyboard is one of the best you’ll find on a netbook, and despite a lack of vibrancy the screen is also sharp and highly usable. The ION chipset allows for a decent GPU, and the results are much better than we’ve come to expect from a netbook. If you want to play HD content or even play older games in your spare time, then this compact machine is well worth a look.

Netbooks might have been the big, or rather the endearingly tiny, new thing on the laptop scene for a time, but the initial excitement has all but evaporated. Now, with the Samsung N510, the company is seeking to reignite the passions of consumers by pairing Intel's Atom with Nvidia's much-touted Ion chipset. The Atom and Ion netbook combination is a success, and this is a solid, though dear, first attempt

NVIDIA GeForce 9400M (G) / ION (LE): Integrated (shared Memory) graphics adapter. Built in in current MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air laptops and also used in the ION (LE) platform for netbooks. Also called GeForce 9400M G. Fastest available motherboard GPU (in 2009). Integrated PureVideo HD (VP3) video processor to decode HD videos with the GPU.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N270:

Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.

11.6": » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 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.
