A very powerful multimedia machine from Samsung..
04 Sep 2012 By Meharo M Nediakala On flipkart.com

I purchased this laptop from Snapdeal (yes, a very bold decision :) ) 3 weeks back. Samsung has introduced a very powerful laptop at decent price in this model. Overall it is a very good package and there is no major competition from others at the moment.nnCPU - Amazing performer which can simply outperform a number of recently released desktop CPUs. With 22nm technology, power consumption of a quad-core has come down to 45W and we will get the same CPU for both desktop and laptop in very near future! CPU switches to 1.2GHz when idling and boosts upto 3.3GHz (only one core) when more power is demanded (you will see varying speeds depending on the load like 1.2, 1.6, 2.9, 3.1 etc). This base clock switching of Ivy bridge helps the laptop to stay very cool while normal usage (you can feel this laptop very very cool if you are just surfing internet or drafting a word document). And it heats up quickly may be becoming very hot while playing a latest game. Some competitors offer 3615QM (35W) which is good in terms of power consumption but a little less powerful compared to 3610QM. Intel HD 4000 graphics is enough powerful, again the advantage is less power consumption as it is an integrated unit of i7.nnGPU - No doubt GT 650M is really impressive, may be more manufacturers will start supporting it when a stable driver is available with no beta badge. One interesting thing I noticed, GPU is always staying cooler than CPU after the latest BIOS update (P05AAA). It is also almost twice as fast as 630M which Lenovo has to offer in their high-end models. 650M struggles a bit when all anti-aliasing and high quality settings are turned on (Nvidia control panel) but I think that's acceptable provided the output quality is hardly noticeable and Nvidia's performance settings are just fine enough. Nvidia's Optimus is again helping to keep this laptop very cool as external GPU goes off immediately after finishing a game or graphic intensive application. We can also see GPU switching core and memory frequencies as the demand varies. Though all these can help laptop comparatively cool, I saw this laptop heating up too much when both CPU and GPU are fully loaded. Thanks to its design, heat is not much spread to other body parts but directly pumped out through the air vent on left side. Still I feel, for the power it can produce, Samsung needs to work on a better cooling solution. I seriously doubt the lifespan of this machine if continuously used for heavy gaming without a proper cooling aid.nnDisplay - 1600x900 is impressive in terms of resolution. Font size is just fine (not very small) on a 15 inch screen and you you will really feel ample of space to deal with multiple application windows. Viewing angle is just fine don't expect much here. Color accuracy and color quality is disappointing, use an external display if you really want to do some professional like photo editing. Display is sufficiently bright (advertised as 300nit) and Samsung has some pre-configured presets which simply can boost the colours and an overall better movie and gaming experience. Samsung's display is also very sharp and crisp. Tried calibrating it and I couldn't see pure white which a Macbook pro can produce amazingly. Samsung's screen produces either reddish or a little yellowish white color. Matt display is a cool addition its not that soft if you touch it, nice.nnChipset - It's HM76 which lacks only the RAID support of HM77 but has all other highlights like USB 3.0 support.nnHDD - 5400 rpm HDD and you get 20-25ms seek time latency which is not very impressive. But it exhibits a very good data transfer rate (peak at 110MB/s and average between 80-90MB/s) which can compete with some of the 7200 rpm models in the market. This HDD, ST1000LM024 is branded as a Segate one but actually a Samsung spin-point high performance device generally considered as a decent notebook HDD. Anyways seek time can affect application loading times when compared to a 7200 rpm HDD. Obviously, a 1TB HDD is one of the attractions of this laptop.nnAudio - Realtek HD Audio + SoundAlive + JBL 2.1 speakers = Excellent!. The sound clarity and sound reproduction abilities of these JBL speakers are amazing. One good reason to bug this laptop if you hear its audio. Very clear sound which separates different instrument sounds very neatly and absolutely no issues even at full volume. It's very loud at full volume, can easily replace your small speaker system with addition of a brilliant sound clarity!nnExtra - Plastic body which feels very light and weak though I like its colour. Better noise management of 1.3 megapixel webcam, can easily use inside a room which is poorly lighted. Dual channels for wifi and widi support are pluses. Its Bluetooth lacks HS support.nnFinal update - This laptop has some known issues with high temperature and throttling while playing heavy games. Fortunately it seems fixed in the latest BIOS update P05AAA which just released a week ago.
