Samsung Series 7 Chronos 700Z 15 : Extremely impressed

Good but much slower than i had anticipated. This is a good looking laptop, the well laid out keyboard is nice to type on, slim and quite lightweight but still fairly robust. The 700z i5 was quite a jump in tech for me and i had anticipated a much faster machine. The hype given to speed of i5 seems much overdone and it has been a real disappointment to find this chronos to be so slow. All in all a good buy but don’t expect lightening speed.

This is,contrary to some opinion, a sturdy little computer and, as all reviews will tell you, packing a mighty punch. It feels a bit heavier than i was expecting but looks very good. Very pretty and much sturdier than the sony s series i had to send back after the battery packed in within and hour of unpacking it. Provided you ensure you tap firmly here is absolutely no problem with any of the keys or the space bar. I like the widely spaced keys. I love the track pad but it does tend to ‘pick’ up items so be sure to give yourself time to learn how to use it. No problems with the screen. It’s excellent and you can adjust it in about 10 seconds with the built n easy set up software. I has a very fast start up time and the restart from ‘sleep’is astonishing a windows computer. We’re talking 5 seconds or less.

I purchased this laptop in december 2011. I too was suprised that it did not have a blue ray disc player, this was not clear when i purchased it. It,s performance is superb, my one negative comment is with cs5 photopshop extended when working on art subjects is that it gets very hot, and i have to put it on a fan base, but it is exceptionally fast at processing and mine works all over a large area on wi fi with the bt hub. I also have a top of the range toshiba portege costing over double the price and it compares well with this, nice machine. Here are the specifications for the Samsung Series 7 Chronos 700Z 15:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Fast Performance – ExpressCache technology virtually halves boot up and loading times for Internet Explorer and frequently used applications
  • Superior Display – enjoy a more immersive visual experience and greater value with MaxScreen anti-reflective LED screen technology
  • Premium Design and Durability – aluminum metal casing provides an elegant and powerful look that’s extremely durable

Looks:very good, build quality:good, performance:very good, screen:good but needs adjustment, audio:ok, keyboard:very good, touchpad:very large and needs a bit of getting used to, but ok. Good value for the money (with vatback) but would be superb with improved build quality, better screen with full hd, blu-ray drive and audio upgrade; but i guess it would be the price of a mac by then.

Great speed and build, screen not the best. I’ve only had this laptop for a week and so far am pretty satisfied with it. It’s rapid for games, although it will never beat a dedicated gaming laptop. (for instance it can run napoleon total war at max settings perfectly acceptably) the build quality is good, although there’s more plastic than i anticipated but it’s as good as you’ll get in this price bracket and spec i should imagine.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A real powerhouse
  • Good but much slower than I had anticipated
  • Good high-end laptop

Great laptop with only a couple of hang ups. As mentioned in other reviews the space bar is not perfect depending on your typing style and track pad takes a bit of getting used to if you normally use one with seperate buttons. If you are wanting to text lots of text try something else but for brute force processing power and useability i have been really pleased with my purchase so far. Slim, attractive and powerful.

The original laptop supplied developed a fault. Moremhz arranged the return of the laptop and replaced it with an identical spec model at all times providing full information on what was happening. I can’t fault the replacement unit and the after sales service was excellent so i recommend this merchant.

A quiet and blisteringly fast laptop. I’ve had this laptop for a few months now and it is still very fast to boot up and copes with any number of apps opened at the same time. It plays and burns cds and dvds smoothly and without fuss. The screen is superb and good enough for watching tv online with a few people watching together. I haven’t found anything yet that it doesn’t do superbly well.

I’ve had this laptop a few weeks and i have made some observations about it that prospective buyers may find useful. First, note that the cheaper i5 version of this laptop does not have a number of features that are listed as features on reviews and on the website. These include:* discrete graphics* backlit keyboard* a small caching ssdi felt a bit cheated when i got it to find that these things were missing (amazon does hint at this, but the samsung website makes no effort to clarify the missing features). The laptop has the following plus points:* the laptop feels solid and well made* fairly light for a 15″* the screen resolution is much higher than the average at this price* battery life seems decent* quiet* the recovery disc that comes with the laptop is a full windows install disc (for once)the negatives:* the trackpad (which others have complained about profusely) is mediocre at best. Luckily i don’t use it much. I often find myself right clicking instead of left clicking. * samsung software is buggy. It seems to love disabling the wifi, and pressing the wifi button on the keyboard brings up the configuration tool a few minutes later instead of just toggling the setting like you would expect. * viewing angle on the screen is pretty awful, it was pretty much unusable on a plane as a result.

Impressive piece of equipment. I recently purchased this computer as i needed something fast and reliable after my 5-year old toshiba sattelite began to show signs of dying down. I was also considering an apple macbook but couldn’t justify the price when this computer does exactly the same (almmost same specs) and it is so much cheaper. Also, i was not sure what a switch to mac will mean for all my windows-based files and photos (buying additional compatibility software, re-saving all my files to be able to open on a mac, etc, just too much for me), so i stuck to windows, and i am very glad i did. Amazon delivered it very quickly as well, took 3 days from the moment i ordered until i was up and running.
