Reviews for the Samsung R505-Aura QL62 Dagos

80% Samsung R505 review

Samsung's R505 is a fantastic entry-level laptop, despite some minor shortcomings. Samsung's entry-level laptops regularly impress us and the R505 (£427 inc. VAT) is no exception. Despite its minor shortcomings, the R505 is a fantastic entry-level laptop. With usability to shame more expensive systems and its capable, if unremarkable, performance, this is a great laptop at an equally pleasing price.

QL-62:

Similar to the Turion X2 CPU, but with reduced power saving functions (no deep sleep, only 2 instead of 3 P-states). Compareable to a 1.3-1.9 GHz Core 2 Duo (depending on the application).

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
