84.4% Samsung Notebook 9 NP900X5T (i7-8550U, GeForce MX150) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Periodic throttling. The Notebook 9 NP900X5T would have been a powerhouse of an Ultrabook if it weren't for its intolerable throttling when gaming.

The new 15-inch Samsung Notebook 9 suffers from a squishy keyboard and a small amount of storage for its price, but it might be just the perfect laptop for a specific person: someone that prioritizes lasting power and performance above all else … and can get used to that keyboard.

81% Samsung Notebook 9 Pen (2018) Laptop Review
Source: Reviewed.com English
If you're looking for a speedy convertible for note-taking or doodling, the Notebook 9 is a good choice. With its 8th Gen Intel CPU, 8GB of RAM, and included stylus, this 2-in-1 has a lot to offer. The port selection is great too, as it eliminates the need for dongles. While we like the fast performance and lightweight stylus, we still had a few gripes with it.

92% Samsung Notebook 9 EXT 15″ 2018 review: Lightweight, brilliant display, and strong battery life
Source: Techaeris English
In the end, for me, the things I like about the Samsung Notebook 9 EXT 15″ outweighed the things I didn’t like. This was really a nice machine. I will say, for those who really rely on a backlit keyboard. Go check it out before you buy, the keyboard is great to type on but you really need to see the backlighting ahead of time. If that is the one thing you really need to be spot on, that may make or break your decision. It’s really something you need to test for yourself because my brightness preference may be different from yours.

The Samsung Notebook 9 Pro has a vivid display and the S Pen is a great stylus, but it's hamstrung by a poor keyboard, brief battery life and a boring design.

73% Samsung Notebook 9 Pen review: Solid stylus, so many compromises
Source: Engadget English
Ultimately, Samsung's Notebook 9 Pen is a solid little machine with perhaps too many quirks. I have few complaints about its performance and battery life, and in general it has been a reliable little workhorse. It does, however, feature a handful of puzzling design decisions that could've been avoided had Samsung approached this machine more thoughtfully. And the S Pen, while surprisingly effective on a laptop, just won't be worth the premium for a lot of people. Samsung's penless 13-inch Notebook 9m -- also recently announced -- offers nearly everything this pen-packing model does for $100 less. Still, the Notebook 9 Pen has its niches: Students in need of an excellent note-taking machine will find a lot to appreciate here, as will folks who crave sheer portability. If that's not you, well, you can do better elsewhere.

60% Samsung Notebook 9 Pen Review: Too Light For Its Own Good
Source: The Verge English
Despite the Notebook 9 Pen’s solid performance, quality display, and extremely light design, I can’t get over its cheap feeling finish and terrible battery life. On top of that, the weird keyboard quirks and bloatware just make this feel like a machine that would be overpriced at $1,000, much less at the $1,400 it retails for.

With the Notebook 9 Pen, Samsung works some key features from the Galaxy Note 8 phone into a premium two-in-one laptop. For traveling, the Spectre x360 13 is a top choice, thanks to its four-in-one flexibility and terrific battery life. Its stylus is fine for annotating, writing lists or other brief-use tasks, but I don't like it for drawing or extensive note-taking.

The Notebook 9 Pen is a solid, if somewhat unremarkable 2-in-1 laptop with a useful stylus and pleasing screen. But its price is a bit high for what you get.
