Reviews for the Samsung R510

The low-cost Samsung R510 laptop is definitely worth considering. Its large 15.4-inch screen and stylish design may appeal as much as its affordability: it starts as low as around £390, rising to around £550 -- the price of our review sample. The Samsung R510 is a stylish yet affordable laptop that's suitable for both work and leisure use. With a 15.4-inch screen and decent performance, it's worth a gander.

Samsung's R510 is a good laptop with a strong specification, but struggles to stand out. We've been frequently impressed by Samsung's range of low-end laptops, and the Samsung R510 (£549 inc. VAT) offers a familiar blend of usability, value for money and impressive mobility. Overall, the Samsung R510 is a likeable laptop, but it doesn't feel in the same class as the best laptops in this price range, such as Dell's Studio 15.

A comfortable and good-quality laptop, although features are a bit average. The Samsung R510 (£379 inc. VAT) is definitely affordable, but it's up against strong competition in this group. You'll find the same sized screen as the Sony VAIO VGN-NS20E/S – at 15.4-inches – but colours are slightly more washed out. As such, it's not so great for home entertainment or editing photographs, but it's fine for working on the move. At this price, the Samsung R510 is a strong contender. It's quick enough for daily use and offers a level of quality that would put many more expensive laptops to shame. The £379 price is also impressive, making it outstanding value for money.

The Samsung R510 is a decent laptop with amazing battery life, but if you’re prepared to take a minor hit on performance, you could get the Acer Aspire 5920 for significantly less outlay.

Samsung - R510 review
Source: IR Reviews English
A well priced and well featured mid-range notebook ideal for the non-gaming home user or even for the small office, but it's at a price point with a lot of competition. Some of that competition offers even more features, so you might be better served shopping around. If you fancy a true Centrino 2 version of the R510 you need to budget around £600.

Samsung has produced an excellent mid-range notebook in the R510-FAA4UK, with a simple yet nice design and some great features for a very affordable price. But though it is a bargain, it's not necessarily the only or best one, and you'll want to check around before buying.

Hot on the heels of Samsung's sub-£2kg portable, the Q210 (web id: 215352), comes yet another in its revamped lineup. This time, however, there's a different target market in mind and this, the R510, boasts an altogether more affordable price point. A generous specification and preternaturally good looks make the Samsung R510 a solid budget buy.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS: Slower clocked 9300M GS and therefore a little bit slower. Supports PureVideo HD (VP3)and Hybrid-SLI (HybridPower and GeForceBoost).

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 Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T5750:

Entry level dual core processor based on the Merom core without Virtualization support and a low maximum temperature.

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.


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.
