Good: Screen size, Core i3 processor, Battery life, Windows 7, Samsung fast start, DVD drive
Bad: Glossy screen
Comment: I have only had it for one week and already I love it.
The size is perfect for viewing for a long time, but also very portable. The Windows 7 OS is brilliant to use and incorporated with Samsungs recovery and fast boot and the Intel Core i3, the speed is brilliant.
The inclusion of a DVD drive, makes backing up and watching DVDs easy, without adding too much weight to the laptop.
Even with a glossy screen, the viewing angles are quite good, though it would have been better with Samsungs matt screen.
The quality of the webcam could have been better, but it is still quite nice with simple video calls via Skype etc.
The keyboard is quite well spaced out and doesn't feel too flimsy to the touch.
The general plastic chassis may look plastic, but personally, I really like it and for the price, its what you would expect.
Overall, in terms of portability and usability, this little laptop is great and was not too expensive, either.
Good: slimline, powerful, good screen good battery life, fairly light, good build quality
Bad: not sure
Comment: unfortunately, my Q320 has quite a few years still under its belt.
Good: Size, weight, price, battery, keyboard, optical drive!
Bad: bloatware, build quality?
Comment: Battery life is great- around 5-6 hours with general use, less with more intensive use obv. Fast operation and fantastic price for the specs. Light and small, so easy to carry around. The keyboard and trackpad are great, the screen is also really good w/ pretty good viewing angles. The wrist rest next to the trackpad was creaky, but its not anymore..for the time being. The laptop looks amazing though, but the lid is a bit of a fingerprint magnet. Quite a lot of bloatware, but that doesnt really affect performance. Overall, a fantastic buy. Not quite 5 stars cos of the iffy build quality.
Good: you can always back up your files to DVD thanks to the slim, multi-format DVD drive that Samsung managed to squeeze in.
Comment: will try to hunt this Q330 on store...Grrrr
