      When playing music, videos (mp3, avi, etc), output audio is not good because it has discontinuity, ?faltering?

        Comments about Samsung Q530 Notebook:

        If you look at the specs they don't even mention the CPU. If you read the promo material you'd think it comes with an i5 but how many cores? Well, unless Windoze Device Manager is confused, the unit sitting on my desk has an i3 quad core CPU. I don't like that this is such a secret. Buyer beware. It's a nice laptop, otherwise.

          Comments about Samsung Q530 Notebook:

          My Q530 is beautiful! The screen is so sharp and vibrant. It's fast and up to date. It could be smaller and lighter, ideally, but it's not big and heavy by any means. I had one problem with the Wifi not working outside my home when I first got it. I had heard of Samsung laptops having Wifi issues so I feared I had a bum one. Not so! I called tech support and although it took a long while on the phone, my American, ENGLISH-SPEAKING rep patiently helped me update something and got it working, all from the comfort of the coffee shop. I have never had a problem since then. The screen can display horizontally or vertically, if you want to stand the laptop on its edge, but the power plug on one side and the USB ports on the other make standing it on its side difficult unless you unplug stuff or let part of your laptop dangle off the table -- that's a little too daring for me. So it's nice that the possiblity is there, but not really realistic. My only wish is that there were more than 2 USB ports. I actually haven't needed 3 yet, but I usually have a mouse plugged into one and I could see an occasion when I'd need more than 2. That's not much of a complaint, because the Q530 rocks, and was an amazing value!

                        Comments about Samsung Q530 Notebook:

                        This was a gift for my birthday. I had been lugging around my old laptop for the past 6 years or so and didn't realize I wanted a new one. I was so excited when I got this item. The design is sleek and slylish while still being compact and light weight (compared to my old one). I love the full keyboard and the number keyboard on the side. The video camera works great and the processor is very fast. There is also a ton of space on this notebook for all kinds of downloads. I transfered all my old data and music from my old laptop, which was almost full, to this one and it's like there's almost nothing stored. I had to detele a lot of junk from the computer that was added to it by the manufacturer, but that's pretty normal. All in all, it's a great item and I'm very very happy!

                          Best laptop I've ever owned. Had A Sony and I personally feel Samsung makes a very comparable if not better product. It would have been sweet if it came with a factory built in blu-ray player or burner and louder speakers which is why i gave this notebook a 4/5 Star rating for features. Overall im very satisfied with my purchase and will definatley will be back for more Samsung products. Thanks Samsung!!!!
