Matt Multimedian. Multimedia performance with Core i5-460M & GeForce GT 330M, paired with office qualities like a matt display, low emissions and good input devices. The perfect 15.6 incher for the consumer bearing ambitions?

This was a powerful unit that performed well, if you could lose the shiny lid and reflective screen and add a Blu-ray drive then I think I would have found what for me would be a near perfect system. My only other gripe is why do cards stick out from the multi card slot where others get them to fit snugly in, this could cause problems if you go to put the unit in a case possibly even damaging or removing the card without you seeing.

The Samsung RF510 provides above-average performance in a stylish and resasonably-priced package. However, in this price range, the Dell XPS 15 provides similar performance with better audio, a more colorful screen, a backlit keyboard, and configuration options such as Blu-ray and a full HD display. If you don't need the muscle of discrete graphics, the Samsung SF510 is an equally stylish system with a 15-inch display, good performance, and long battery life for just $650. But if you're looking for a powerful 15-inch system with a strong keyboard and high-end looks, the Samsung RF510 is a compelling option.

We've been dead impressed by some of the laptops Samsung has spawned over the last few months, so our hopes were sky-high for the 15.6-inch Samsung RF510. The Samsung RF510 is a powerful, although not particularly portable, laptop that offers plenty of computer for your cash. Even though no particular feature blew us away, it's a great all-rounder.

The Samsung RF510-SO2UK is a well designed laptop that's great value for money and can cope with any business task. Samsung has also thrown in some good multimedia components and a great screen and keyboard. Shame about the sub-par audio set up and underperforming battery.

Closest in both specification and price to the HP Pavilion dv6-3130sa, the Samsung RF510-S02UK is a 15.6in laptop that offers many distinctive features which make it a rather different proposition.

70% Samsung RF510 Review: Editor’s Choice – Good, Fast and Cheap
Source: Notebooks.com English
The saying goes that you can have something, Good Fast and Cheap — so long as you are OK settling for two out of the three choices. Well, the Samsung RF510 15.6″ notebook goes against popular logic and delivers on all three of these criteria. It is rare to find a notebook that meets or exceeds our expectations in so many areas — and is available under $1,000 which is why we have awarded it a Notebooks.com Editor’s Choice award.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M: The Nvidia GeForce GT 330M is the successor of the GT 230M and technically just a slightly higher clocked GT 240M (but it should still maintain the power envelope of the GT 230M as the naming suggests).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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


460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.538 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
