    It’s amazing

    “It’s amazing” my daughter said. She got the iPad Pro 11” for her birthday and is already marking beautiful artwork. We wanted an iPad that would last and the M1 processor will make this a future proof tablet for years to come. This is the perfect iPad for schoolwork, personal, having fun and creativity. I highly recommend the apple pen 2. Will add a keyboard case later to compete the setup.

    Best Pro Tablet 2021

    Surprisingly, I never knew that the iPad Pro is going to be that good for a futuristic tablet. This year, Apple have finally step up their when they're going to add M1 to iPad. For my perspective, I thought this tablet would have issues with performance or any other that need to be improve. Overall, I think the iPad Pro is a professional tablet would probably be a laptop replacement. But likely. If anyone is considering a tablet, whether high productivity or content and working on office, I highly recommend this tablet for 2021.

  • Review by DragonReview, 10 out of 10
    It's practically a laptop!

    The battery on my iPad Air 2 is dying (it has to be constantly plugged in to work) so I figured now would be a good time to replace it with something newer.

    What do I use my iPad for:

    - I like to take it with me to Starbucks or other cafes that I sit at

    - I take it with me when I travel for extended times

    - I mainly use it casually: streaming videos, browsing the internet, interacting on social media, some light gaming, and word processing (I don't really use FaceTime or any video calls on it)

    I picked up the iPad Air 4 and the iPad Pro 2021 11 inch to compare and I still went with the iPad Pro 2021 11 inch even though the iPad Air 4 would be more than enough for me. Honestly, just the plain, regular, iPad would be enough for those needs.

    So why go with something hundreds of dollars more? There's a few reasons.

    1) I wanted to future proof my iPad. I got the iPad Air 2 when it came out in 2017 and have been using it sense. With the iPad Pro using the M1 chip, it's basically has the innards of a Apple laptop/desktop, just in tablet form. It will likely be compatible with any new tech Apple comes out with and utilities any new iOS updates to their fullest extent.

    2) I'm also looking for something to replace my laptop which is over a decade old. The iPad Pro with a keyboard case and some other accessories could potentially fill that gap. The only thing really stopping it for me is I can't run a full blown Windows OS on it (like I can if I get a surface). But depending on what's instore for iOS, maybe I won't have as urgent a need to replace my laptop.

    3) I like fast. I know, I know, it's silly if all I'm going to be doing is streaming and browsing the internet on it but launching Civ 6 at the same time on the iPad Air 4 and seeing that the iPad Pro is a second faster is still nice lol

    What this really boils down to is potential. The iPad Pro with that M1 chip has more potential than the iPad Air 4. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if the next iPad Air has the M1 chip or something better in it, but I'm looking for a replacement right now, especially with things starting to open back up and I can start dining in at Starbucks and cafes.

    Bye bye version 1!!

    Very responsive. Feels like a normal pencil. The first version was to long and worst charging way. Now it magnified to the side for the iPad and charges. If u want to draw, sketch or write on ur iPad pick the Apple Pencil 2 up!

    Great Apple Pencil

    The pencil is awesome and I would not go with out. I use it for many of my apps, etc. It saves the screen from getting finger prints all over it. I love the fact it sit right on top of the iPad “Magnet” and it stays. It also charges right in its place. When the iPad is being charged so is your pencil. Can’t beat that.

    A must have for your iPad!

    I was not sure how much I would actually use this pen but I am glad that I purchased it. It has become my favorite accessory for my iPad Pro and I use daily. I do wish that apple would incorporate a eraser for the opposite end, but maybe in a future iteration.

    Great companion to an iPad!

    Apple Pencil does what it is supposed to do! Works flawlessly with my iPad. The wireless charging feature is the reason why I chose Apple Pencil 2 over Apple Pencil 1. I always keep my Pencil attached to my iPad so that whenever I need to use the Pencil, it is always fully charged. Never ran into dead Pencil or accuracy issues. Everything’s as expected from an Apple product and works as described and expected.

    Great HD for PS5

    Great device so far. Connected to daughters PS5 off recommendation from friend that used the same HD for his PS5 with no issues. Great for storing and playing ps4 games on PS5. Formats quick, runs quick. Only thing i dont like, but its not a big deal, is power light is small and on the back so its hard to see when i want to check to see if its powered on.

    I use this external drive for my Xbox One X. It's perfect. No issues. I have another external WD and thought I'd continue with the brand. So far I don't regret this purchase. I'm going to purchase again for my external laptop.

    It's quiet. My other old WD is big and I am not able to travel with it. This is just the right size to slip into a pocket.

    Worked Great for almost one month

    When it was working, for the month it was working, it was working. The cord was secure and didn't easily disconnect unlike some other external drives I've had. But after awhile it became harder for my computer(Macbook pro) to register. I also tried plugging it into my windows computer and no luck either.The light would come on and the disk would spin but western digital would say there was no usb attached, while WD drive utility would read it but there would be no volumes found on the drive despite having 1.5TB of info placed on the drive and attempting to run test on the drive failed. I'd say you're better off going for one of the bulkier drives that aren't portable. For those drives you'd be able to take them out of their casing a pop them in an external drive reader at least, this one you're kind of completely out of luck. I ordered it June 24nd and yesterday on July 21st it stopped being able to be read. It seems to already be bricked.

    My First Macbook and a great one

    My entry to Apple’s ecosystem started with an iphone , which motivated me to buy a mac just to get a feel of it.

    However after I purchased this mac, I love how powerful this macbook is. The sound is crisp and the screen is crystal clear.This is a treat to my senses. I develop applications in Java and my apps compile at lightning speed making the overall dev process faster.

    Great upgrade for a laptop!

    I previously owned a 2017 MacBook Air which wasn’t a bad choice but for what I’m doing now the 2020 MacBook Pro has easy, cool new features I wasn’t used to. I now have the memory/storage for all of my Creative Cloud programs and photos from Photography. I just started Drafting and AutoCAD for Mac runs pretty good in my opinion.

    I was a first grader when it came to anything tech and was afraid to buy a laptop for that reason. As an Art Instructor, during COVID, unique teaching methods had to be considered and used and I had to get into the modern way of doing things. The salespeople and Geek Squad made it so easy for me, and are so welcoming and attentive to my need that, in just a few short weeks, I now feel like a fourth grader in the tech department!!!

    The 2014 Mac Air VS the New Mac Air

    I own two Mac Airs. One from 2014 and this one. I would like to compare the two because I feel there are some features on the older version that are more desirable.

    1. The Battery

    The new Mac battery lasts forever and charges quickly with a USB-C port. I favor the older magnetic charger but that's a small thing.

    2. Display

    The new display is very clear however, the screen extends to the very edge of the device similar to the iPhone. So if you drop this device you're screwed. I dropped my 2014 and it dented the edge of the screen but didn't break the glass because of the extra aluminum edge. I don't think the new Mac screen would survive this.

    3. The web cam

    The 2014 is very dark for some reason. The new Mac seems to have fixed this issue with a nice and clear video.

    4. USB ports

    The 2014 has 2 USB-A ports, a lighting connection port, phone jack and an SDXC card slot

    The new Mac only has two USB-C ports and a headphone jack! so you need a number of adapters to connect anything which is quite annoying especially since my wireless mouse uses an old USB-A. Apple only sells limited adapters so you need to buy PC adapters which I'm not crazy about. However I have a dual USB-A adapter from Dell that works great

    5. The Chip

    The M1 chip is lighting fast. Even though my 2014 has an 1.4 Ghz dual core I5, it doesn't compare.

    6. The famous logo

    It's another little thing but, I liked the illuminated apple logo on the back of the 2014. Maybe its no longer there to extend battery life? Idk but I thought it was a nice feature that separated apple from the rest.

    Read BEFORE purchasing “Open box” condition!

    I bought this online in “Open box” condition meaning the display model. It was described as being on excellent condition and all in all I ended up paying around $970 for it after taxes and fees. When I first received the laptop I was immediately in awe of its beauty (I bought the rose gold version) However upon trying to set up the laptop and gain access into it I ran into a bunch of issues which required me to contact Apple support. Best Buy had not done a software reset on the laptop before shipping it to me which resulted in me not being able to log in or set up my password. It was only after 2 days of receiving it that Apple finally pin pointed the issue and was able to walk me through doing a complete reset thereby allowing me to finally gain access into my laptop! Ever since then I’ve been in love with it! My only small complaint would be that I have to buy an adapter now to be able to connect my phone to it, other than that this was a great buy!

    Macbook Gal

    I've purchased this model of the MacBook; the day after Christmas. When I bought it, I fell in love with it. I bought the Gold Color; which I thought was cute. Although the MacBook came with the 256GB which I thought was enough. I bought this MacBook for online school, it is so flawless. I love the quietness, no viruses and the compatibility. It is very fast. This is my first MacBook and I will keep it forever.

    My one and only daily driver for everything

    I have been using this laptop as my daily driver ever since the day I purchased it. It has never overheated. The most it ever gets is a bit warm after having 10+ windows and applications open in the background. The feeling of the laptop is therapeutic and feels amazing, but I recommend having some form of protection because it does feel like one drop from a decent height can be fatal. The display is great. The sound is from the speakers are actually more than decent. Overall, this MacBook Air has been amazing. Highly recommend!

    Speedy new me!

    Replaced my 10-year-old MacBook Air & I am so happy. The new one has many improvements, for example in the grammar & spelling corrections. Speed is greatly improved. Unfortunately the USB port is different so I had to buy an adapter to look at any old flash drives. Not sure why they did that, but since it’s Apple, I’m sure there was a good reason.

    Absolutely FANTASTIC! I love the size and weight of this MacBook. The keyboard and trackpad are awesome!! It all works and performs as you would expect from a premium computer. I bought a Incase Icon sleeve to store in when not in use. That is a must have accessory to have to protect computer. This was my second MacBook Air purchase. I purchased first one from Apple directly. I liked mine so much I bought the girlfriend this one for her birthday from Best Buy. She's in love with it as well. Thank you Apple and Best Buy!

    Ipad Pro 12.9 - Open Box Hairline scratches

    My open box - excellent condition arrived today and it’s really great! The only thing is that there is a long hairline scratch along the top part that starts in the bezel and continues onto the screen. It isn’t noticeable as long as I’m not looking for it in the light, but it was supposed to be “excellent” but yet there’s a long hairline scratch. I believe I saw some small hairline scratches here and there on the screen as well. I’m probably just being overly paranoid but I wasn’t expecting any scratches at all since it was excellent condition. The photos don’t show the scratch all that well, but the scratch is about 5 inches long and curves from the bezel down to the screen.

    Fantastic Tablet !

    Absolutely Fantastic !

    Our previous 10” iPad was flawless, but, we decided to eliminate our desktop, and go with only 1 “computer”,

    We did our research; compared all laptops on the market including the newest Apple Mac, as well as all current tablets. and purchased the new Apple 12.9” iPad Pro.

    For us, we made the right decision. There is no need for any additional tech hardware (of course we have our iPhones). This 12.9” iPad Pro does it all !

    It is 100% as advertised, and more.

    Screen size huge help to digital artists

    I upgraded to this unit from my 2020 iPad Pro 11in. Just this seemingly small screen is a huge benefit if you draw on iPad with Procreate or Clip Studio! Two inches of screen diagonally is actually a lot. Your screen is taller and wider. Seriously, 12.9 inches is basically a MacBook Pro 13 inch. Heck, I even use a sleeve intended for the MacBook.

    Before, 11 inches was comfortable enough for drawing, but there wasn’t quite enough room if I wanted a reference image on the same screen. Now it’s better than ever having a huge canvas/screen to draw on, but I can now squeeze in reference images too.

    Tip for reference images. Make a pages document. Paste your images there, then split screen and make the pages side narrow. You can now slide around as you please. Great for reference/mood boards.

    My entry to Apple’s ecosystem started with an iphone , which motivated me to buy a mac just to get a feel of it.

    However after I purchased this mac, I love how powerful this macbook is. The sound is crisp and the screen is crystal clear.This is a treat to my senses. I develop applications in Java and my apps compile at lightning speed making the overall dev process faster.

    I was a first grader when it came to anything tech and was afraid to buy a laptop for that reason. As an Art Instructor, during COVID, unique teaching methods had to be considered and used and I had to get into the modern way of doing things. The salespeople and Geek Squad made it so easy for me, and are so welcoming and attentive to my need that, in just a few short weeks, I now feel like a fourth grader in the tech department!!!

    An acceptable replacement for an old MBP17

    It’s blazing. The 16 inch screen is amazing, even in comparison to my old MBP17. I miss the MagSafe power connector. Hoping I don’t break this one off inside the laptop. The TouchPad is rather large, leaving little room for palms and an awkward hand position for typing. I was weary of the TouchBar, but now I love it!! Get yourself an adapter now. You will certainly need a USB-C adapter.

    IN LOVE & RUNS SIMS 4 WONDERFULLY

    when I tell you I am smitten by this laptop.... I’m 26 and have never owned my own laptop or made such a hefty purchase but man, was she worth it.

    I spent over a week spinning my wheels about what kind of device to get and what brand. Although I am a loyal Apple customer, I didn’t want to spend too much money and was actually going to purchase a windows mid price laptop. BUT, I just KNEW I wouldn’t be completely happy with it and I’d keep thinking about this MacBook Air.

    I wanted something that would knock me off my feet, something I’m used to functioning (I’m familiar and comfortable with apple products), and something that would last me a LONG TIME.

    Another huge piece of my decision making is the fact that I wanted to be able to play Sims 4 on my new laptop. I’m aware Apple devices historically aren’t for gaming, but guess what, this new M1 chip isn’t messing around. After chatting with some tech professionals at Best Buy and them assuring me this laptop would run Sims 4 beautifully, I knew what I had to do.

    Let me just say that the Big Sur update along with this M1 chip make this laptop an absolute DREAM. She is incredible and I cherish her. She runs so smoothly, plays Sims SO smoothly, all of the new updates are outstanding, and I couldn’t be happier.

    Worth every dollar spent. 5/5 purchase. You won’t regret it. :)

    Really fast

    Got this drive installed and Windows installed and I am now getting close to the speed specs after having to change a couple things. Please read my tips, it may help you and save some frustration and even maybe save you from returning it. To get that max speeds this needs to be installed in a PCIe 4.0 compatible motherboard with a PCIe 4.0 compatible CPU. I am using this in an Asus X570 Tuf Gaming Plus with a Ryzen 3900X. This also needs to be installed in the M.2 slot closest to the CPU which has a direct connection to the CPU, I initially had it in the bottom slot below the PCIe slots and that one is connected to the chipset which is slower, I was getting like half the write speeds at first until I switched it. You also need to download and install the WD SSD Dashboard so you can enable the Gaming Mode, otherwise again, speeds won't be as fast. After those couple things, I am now getting closed to advertised speeds and I am happy.

    Expand PS5 storage for PS4 games

    Bought this to expand my PS5 storage, Instead of using the SSD drive I’ll use this for the PS4 games which they don’t need the SSD that the PS5 games need, so far the hard drive it’s being working flawless, totally recomendable.

    Not Anymore

    After using it for about a month, it started making a strange sound. Soon after, the drive cannot be recognized by any computer. I have been trying for another month to get a solution from WD but nothing that have been recommended works. I can still get a replacement but currently the data that I have saved is more valuable to me. I own other WD drives that I have been using for a long time without problems. Maybe these new models are not as good as the old ones.

    Fast but Messy

    Item got here in one day from being ordered, but in that Time...someone was hateful enough to compltetely trash the package.

    The box was completely ripped-clear across-from one side to the other-obviously forcively. This was done on two of the four sides...seemingly violently. Then the box that the external hardrive came in was near crushed on one side like someone threw it with force at the ground...leaving deep impressions and indentations on it.

    I had Picked up the package nearly-immediately after the package's delivery...it had the appearance of a hate-crime and vandalism upon first sight.

    As i had looked at the package i had thought to my self..."the package looks as though someone was in a hurry to open Their present and did Not like it...so They had threw it with extreme force and prejudice...out of a fit of Anger."

    Damaged goods, tampered-with goods and late arrivals...reminds me Why for over two decades i had preferred to shop at a store...and not online.

    Same day pick-up, choice of stock, returns welcomed same-day of cause for concern reported-within coveraged time periods and Any concern with the product's mistreatment is at the cash register where employees responsible could have Their supervisor address the issue with occasionally considerate results. Results that on occasion assure that the employee will not do that to another person-usually by extra labor, docked-pay for damaged goods or in a worst-case scenario...being let-go and fired...only to inevitably be replaced by someone who wants the job More and is willing to do a good job-or better than the previous employee-or else the cycle Then repeats itself.

    For mistreatment based-off of singling someone or multiple people-out is discrimination...and i have had a lot of that similar sort of treatment with packages these past two years.

    The item was on sale, but arrived damaged and Not properly cared for...Any item ranging near-to or over $100 ought to have better care in treatment than the average package...for some of Those items can Not be replaced. It is unprofessional to treat something pricey in such a way to say the least. Not everyone has enough currency for Those sort of Matters to Not be of a Concern to Them. For Some Time spent hashing-out returns or refunds are just as undesirable as Those very Businesses willingness to do so.

    These Anxieties should Not have to be common place.

    My personal experience put aside.

    I am familiar to these external hardrives and i like Them as of yet.

    Item is Neatly packaged and does Not need to be pkugged into an outlet to function...just a coresponding USB capable ready to use connection...devices will vary. For that i suggest changing the data's file type.

    Item is small, portable and durable...also comes in a few different colors for personalized preference.

    Being compact means easy to store away some place for future use.

    Each and every hardrive does not permit the amount presented. That is usually preset and determined by the manufacturer varyingly. Meaning that some hardrives hidden storage space is being used at varying amounts of storage space based off the-usually small amount in comparisson made available for use-to properly run the software, store and maintain the data.

    Usually with a few accesible files already available for storing the data on a back-up online profile of sorts and/or added features of security by being redirected to an online site.

    Though some only come with software to make the hardrive have easy access and compatability...though these features all vary depending upon name brand or logo.

    The more storage space an external hardrive has...the more storage space-usually in gigabytes-that the manufactures will in accessable storage space already taken-up and unavailable...that amount is a variable-despite two different hardrives from different sources holding a total amount of same storage space.

    Though aside from my personal delivery experience...People can consider the rest as my own personal opinion that Some might agree with, partial agree with, not at all agree with...or just do not care to read further into-whatever the reason might be.

    As for price; the listing was greatly reduced, showing that the item was on sale. So to say the least about that; it was a deal for myself-and might still be for another later on, but the reality...is that in a few years to a decade or more...there will eventually be external hardrives that carry double digits in terabytes of data or more...for about the same amount. So for now; Those that can, might or will put These external hardrives to use, yes this currently an appropriate listing price...for myself at least. Though there are some external hardrives up to 12 terabytes already available-Those are Not yet portable devices-Those require to be plugged-in an outlet for Their use of convenience.

    Other than that...the product description already tells the buyer most of the descriptions of publicly considered need to know information.

    Formatting for Mac or exfat

    I deduct one star for lack of instructions--nothing written, no pdf on the drive. I’ll save you the research: here is what you need to do/know: Mine came formatted for Windows devices. If you first plug it into a mac, surprise! The default “install” icon does NOT set it up for use on a mac, it just installs some WD side programs. You must reformat it. This is easy to do --

    1. On macOS you must find “Disk Utility,” on the left side highlight the WD Passport drive, then Erase. You can choose to format it for mac OS only, or format it “exfat” to use it with both mac and windows.

    2. There's only one "not so positive" thing about exFAT, and that's the lack of support for journaling. Journaling is a feature that allows the file system to keep records of changes made to files stored on it. That's useful when data corruption occurs because journals can be used to recover broken data. exFAT doesn't have this feature, and that means that data can be corrupted more easily when unexpected shutdowns occur or when the removable drive formatted this way is not safely ejected. (copied from https://www.digitalcitizen.life/what-is-exfat-why-useful/ )

    Once it is formatted, you will love this small quiet drive!

    Excellent As Usual

    I have about a half-dozen WD Passport drives that I use to back-up my collection of laptops. These drives are very high quality - I have not had a single failure for any of my WD external drives. They are fast enough to do what I use them for - mostly as offline storage, backups, etc. - and I always feel confident that the files are safe. My oldest WD Passport must be over 20 years old and still going.

    Simply outstanding quality.

    This is a great budget laptop.

    People think that they have to have a computer with professional specs. But the average person would never use all that power for as long as they own the device. But I get it, most people want to future proof their investment. But the way I see it, no matter how much you spend. You're going to upgrade within 4 to 5 year's anyway so why not think about what you're going to be doing with it in the first place. Most apps are optimized for low powered devices anyway so you'll never need a high end device to start with. But hey, I can't tell you how to spend your money. But for me, I only keep a device for about two years anyway because I love new technology. But for the average person this is a great product.

    Too Little Storage

    I love most everything about the laptop. The Alcantara suede on the keyboard feels amazing and the Windows Hello facial recognition lets me log on securely without raising a finger. The downside is that Best Buy seems to have gotten a custom spec'd version of this laptop with only 128GB. After the upgrade to Windows 11 and a few apps for work (Teams, Office, Chrome and Zoom) I'm left with 11GB.

    Reliable and affordable. Good for external or NAS.

    Really nice speeds. I'm impressed by this drive. I've bought two Red Plus 12TB drives before. Those Red NAS drives are much more expensive than these external hard drives even though they are essentially the same thing if not better. I will never directly buy a NAS drive again because it's really easy to get one of these external drives that have Ultrastar drives in them. I was able to get this one for less than $200 so it's a really nice deal.

    Great chunk of extra storage

    These massive harddrives were a great buy on sale. They are very responsive even though they only have 5400rpm drive. However, that means they will last longer and generate less heat. I tested throughput and it was not much less than a 7200rpm seagate external, so that means it is limited by the USB3.1 speed.

    Just because it looks new doesn mean it is.

    Easystore drives have been a great source of drives for my NAS setup. When I get them, I normally open the box, plug them into USB to make sure everything is okay. And then shuck them. I know that that likely voids the warranty, but at the price I can generally live with the risk.

    However, I had the unbelievable happen to me.

    I purchased a few "new", sealed easydrives. I forgot to do the USB check on one of them, and as soon as I shucked the container, I knew I'd just lost a good deal of money. The sold as "new" drive had a DELL drive in it with a sticker that said "BAD". When I looked to the back, there was no light pipe. Plugging it in at this point confirmed what the sticker said -- the drive is dead.

    Since I'd already shucked it, I know I'm out of options. This is an expensive lesson to learn. But I'm putting up the review to let everyone know that just because the seals are intact on the box and drive does not mean that all is good.

    So, get the drives, but always check them every time.

    WD Ext 14TB HDD

    The unit was easy to set up. The capacity of it is a 14 TB external hard drive. I split the drive in half so that I could use the space for movies and pictures. It seems to have a low center of gravity so it stands up easy. The connections with simple and durable. The software made the connection to the computer convenient.

    You can draw with the pencil, color with it, WRITE with it...and its great for all ages, all levels. It opens a new artistic world.

    iPad Pro + Apple Pencil = Dream machine

    Okay, so $100 for a stylus is a little ridiculous, but I'm a professional illustrator and I can tell you that this works like a dream with the iPad Pro. Being able to draw directly on the screen rather than paper + scanner cut my work time in half. In the Procreate app I can't even believe how much this works like a real pencil (and I really like traditional media). Has made my work 100% portable - no more bottles of ink to carry around! It would be nice if the eraser end of the pencil was programmed to work like an eraser, but maybe in the next generation. Oh, and remember to turn off your bluetooth when you're not using the pencil, otherwise the pencil battery will drain overnight. But if that happens it's not a huge deal because charging for 15 seconds = 30 minutes of battery life!

    Students need this!

    Bought this because all the students in my class had one and they recommended it. Everyone in my lab was using Apple pencils to write on different PDFs with their iPads when we needed to download and edit documents for each other while I was downloading the attachment to my laptop and trying to figure out how to type in my responses. I’m happy I finally got one, because it connects automatically to my iPad and I plug it into the iPad to charge. I’m still learning how to use it, but like how I can now easily open any document for class and write on it using the app GoodNotes5 without having any issues. Highly recommend to anyone using this for school or work.

    Good quality and low price

    New OS is better. The size is so much better than the 8 that I was replacing. That extra bit of screen improves the on-screen keyboard usability as well as making web browsing much easier. Picture is good. Overall feel is sturdy enough I don’t want a case. Battery lasts many hours. If all you want is to access internet and watch videos—plus a few basic apps—this is well priced and does the job. But it is not a tablet and you cannot access apps from either Google store or Windows store. So know what you are buying

    Great for casual use

    Surprisingly durable and excellent battery life. I use it to read comics, browse the internet, stream videos, and purchase items through Amazon.

    Biggest concern I have with this model is the external micro SD card support features — this device is unable to support exFAT SD card formats, limiting files to 4gb with FAT32 formatted SD cards. I wanted a device where I can quickly and easily transfer my drone footage to a larger screen in order to show friends and family, but I cannot do that with this particular model.

    Otherwise great for casual use! I would recommend purchasing a stand cover to go with it.

    3 of 3 all good

    Bought two of these, three actually if you count a previous gen I bought grandma last year (she reads from it all the time).

    If it's for a kid, get the kids version with the heavy duty case! Trust me.

    The parental controls are cool, setup with your account and then use the kids app so the youngins can't venture out into the darker web or buy apps without permission (unless if they figure out your passcode).

    Seems faster than my dumb phone and doesn't clunk out. I was surprised by the amount of apps available in the app store.

    I'll say that it's actually a boss machine for an older person or a child, the display is Top Notch, but if you're a tech wizard who dreams of making music and drawing album covers at the park, you'll probably want to go with a higher end machine.

This one is a gift so he hasn't used it yet BUT I have nothing but good things to say about these tablets. The quality and speed of this tablet is exceptional and in my opinion is just as good as the Galaxy Note 10 that I also have but for a fraction of the cost. I would and plan on purchasing another one for another grandson for a Christmas gift.

    great price and monitor with one major let down

    I bought two of these monitors on Friday 11/19/2021. What made me buy this monitor was the price. There was a deal going on and I managed to get two at $199.99 each.

    Aside from the price, the 1ms MPRT, IPS, 165Hz, 27in and G-Sync Compatible (not Native G-Sync), were more reasons why this monitor was a steal. Keep in mind, they retail for $329.99 so grabbing these for $200/piece was a major steal.

    Though, there is a chance I might return both of these. First and foremost, the pixel density. When comparing this display to the VG249Q, it is obvious that the screen looks less HD due to it being a 1080p display but at 27 inches. The VG249Q really benefits from its 23.8in display. If both monitors were on sale, I would get the VG249Q and sacrifice 21Hz and 3.2in simply because I know there's a higher pixel density on the smaller monitor.

    Secondly, one monitor had a dead pixel. I went to Best Buy and exchanged it. I still have it in the box and have yet to test it out. I've had dead pixels before on other monitors. It is not a bid deal, but if you're paying for a new monitor, it has to be flawless. Especially if they're ASUS monitors.

    Ultimately, these monitors are pretty good for the price. I know I previously mentioned that I might return them, but the price was so good that I'm willing to keep it. If it was retail price, I would definitely pass and pick up two VG249Qs at retail instead.

    If neither are on sale, definitely get the VG249Q. If both are on sale, you can't go wrong with either choice. Get the cheapest one.

    Asus is the best

    Asus is the way to go. Me and 2 of my buddies bought this monitor for the ps4 and ps5 and it’s excellent. Runs at 120hz 1080p on games that support 120 hz on ps5 and has excellent brightness unlike other cheaper pc monitors. I have the Sony x900h for games like assassin creed but FPS games are excellent on this pc. Wouldn’t suggest buying for anything other then FPS games tho

    Excellent for gaming and work

    I have been using this monitor extensively for over a week now and it is quickly becoming my go to for work and play! The 1080P panel is crisp and clear, though a 2k or 4k would be nice, at this price level this is perfect! I tested the refresh rate through both HDMI and Display Port, with HDMI topping out at 144hz and Display Port at the full 165hz. The display is extreme fast and responsive during fast paced FPS titles, like CS:GO and COD:MW & BOCW. For the periods between gaming, this monitor fits in perfectly in a professional setting, with very subtle gaming style and a clean bezel. The best feature for this is the swivel and rotating base, this allows you to utilize the sharp IPS display easily in horizontal and vertical modes, perfect for spreadsheets and long Word docs! The subtle styling and versatile configurations make this monitor an easy sell to the IT department or a spouse as a 2-in-1 device that will allow you get work done from 9-5, and game on an incredible display the rest of the time! The included speakers are nice to have for notifications, but are not loud enough to be used for more than quick audio or background noise. The I/O selection is very nice, offering 2 HDMI and 1 Display Port in, with one 3.5mm audio out for a headset! Setup is incredibly easy, menus are intuitive and flush with settings and features, and the controls on the back are easy to navigate. This display is able to handle it all!

    Overall, I would highly recommend this panel for someone looking for an excellent value, high refresh rate, quick response time, do-it-all monitor that will bring their work, and especially gaming, to a higher level!

    Big and Pretty but Pushing the Limits

    I have had a chance to use the ASUS TUF VG279QR 27" monitor almost a week now. I paired this monitor with my existing gaming PC setup of R7 1800X with a Vega 64 GPU. I also tried to pair it with my ASUS TUF Dash F15 (w/an RTX 3070) laptop but ran into issues setting the refresh rate. I currently have an abundance of 1080p monitors – triple 22” 75hz IPS gaming monitors, and double 24” 144HZ TN gaming panels. This is this largest, and highest refreshing monitor I have used.

    Specs

    Resolution – 1920 x 1080p FHD

    Refresh Rate – 165Hz

    Screen Size/Ratio – 27” diagonal 16:9

    Panel Type – IPS

    Anti-Glare – Yes

    Brightness – 300 cd/m¬2 (nits)

    Speakers – Yes 2Wx2

    Viewing Angle - ±178°

    VRR – Yes – G-Sync and Freesync Premium

    Ports – 2X HDMI 1.4/DisplayPort 1.2/3.5mm Headset

    Build Quality/Design

    Construction and build quality are excellent, which is something I have come to expect from ASUS. The stand the monitor comes with quite nice. It has a couple of “gamer” looking features like the NVIDIA and TUF branding as well as the red ring around the swivel base. The backside of the stand has some info printed onto it describing its capabilities – 130mm (5.12”) of height adjustment, tilt is 5° forward/30° back, 180° swivel (±90°), and 180° rotation (±90°) for portrait or landscape orientation. I found the stand to be It is very stable thanks to some extra weight in its small footprint. The max height (to the bottom bezel) is 5.75”, which means this monitor can adjust down to a minimum height of 5/8” off your desk surface. Because of the size of the screen and the max adjustable height you can’t switch from landscape to portrait without first tilting the screen back a bit. If you remove the monitor mount you will be met with a 100 X 100 VESA mounting pattern.

    The aesthetic design of the monitor itself is mullet-esque. It’s business in the front and a gamer party on the back. The front is a standard monitor design with a 0.4” thick bezel (frame edge to wear pixels begin on screen) around the sides and top with a thicker 0.57” bottom. This is a fairly thin bezel profile but not quite to the frameless design of my other monitors (0.28” thick). Still with a screen this size the thickness of these bezels shouldn’t deter you from using it in a multi-monitor setup. The backside on the other hand has angular design with an etched pattern that reminds me of my Halo Forerunner structures. There are 4 buttons on the back along with a little joystick. The buttons aren’t squares but zippered together trapezoids.

    Setup

    The panel itself provides a great picture after you fiddle with the settings. Out of the box the image is somewhat muddy and the presets leave a little to be desired. I settled on the scenery mode and then adjusted the sharpness down, lowered the brightness, and adjusted the vivid pixel setting down. All of the settings are accessible via the OSD which you use the little joystick on the rear of the panel to navigate. At the bottom of the menu are the presets (3 of them) that you can save you settings to once you have it dialed in to your liking. As you roll through the menus some items are greyed out depending on your settings. ASUS’s ELMB (extreme low motion blur) is not available of adaptive sync (Freesync)/G-Sync is enabled. Shadow Boost is another that toggles off if you are using as one of the brighter presets. The monitor also include a blue light setting for those that wish to adjust the blue light output – ranges from 0-5.

    Image Quality

    At 27", 1080p is starting to get stretched a little too thin. 1080p at 27” has a PPI of 81.6 which pushes below what you would normally want on a PC monitor. Even a 24” @ 1080p has a PPI of 92 and is considered just below what a good rating would be (100-150) for a normal desktop viewing distance of 2.5’. Currently my 22’s are the only ones that actually fall in this range, which is why I prefer them for typing/reading text. In order to mitigate this lower pixel density you would need to move your seating position a little further out and closer to 4’. This is why 27” is usually the line where a jump to 1440p starts to happen (108 PPI) – however your budget and your graphics card have to be prepared. For most graphics cards 1080p at high or ultra settings will be in their wheelhouse with 1440p quickly becoming more accessible. [email protected] on high settings, let alone ultra is still a stretch for a lot of hardware out there, especially with people holding onto older hardware due to the GPU shortage. This monitor at 1080p and 165Hz is more squarely aimed at the competitive gaming segment where FPS is king. 1080p allows for a high frame rate from mid range hardware and the high refresh of the TUF VG279QR allows it to display more of those frames. If you plan to seat yourself a little further back then the lower pixel density shouldn’t bother you – for me I can’t sit back on my 22’s like I can with the 27.

    In games, with VRR (Freesync) enabled, the image quality was excellent. I had no frame tearing, or framerate issues. Games I tested were Halo MCC, Dirt Rally, Shadow of War, and Ori and the Blind Forest. The 1ms (gray to gray) response time is fantastic for FPS games as well as racing games where input lag kills you. The brightness of the screen was nice to have in Ori where you have a lot of dark and light elements in the same frame. I utilized the Shadow Boost feature in Shadow of War where the game can become heavily steeped in shadows/darkness.

    The screen itself had zero stuck or dead pixels upon startup. The backlight is consistent without any edge bleeding or visible hot spots.

    The Jump to 165Hz

    Prior to this monitor I have had 75Hz and 144Hz panels. The difference between 75Hz and 144Hz was very noticeable. However, the jump from 144 to 165 is only noticeable in the peak framerates that it can achieve. I have a difficult/impossible time discerning the difference between 144 and 165. However, if you are upgrading from a 60/75Hz screen then by all means go for the highest refresh you can get. There are a number of games that rely on the highest refresh you can get that won’t be as concerned with the PPI – games like Overwatch, CS:GO, COD, etc. Those are games where you typically turn down settings to get higher frames, and reduced lag. Anything the get the edge over your opponent.

    The monitor came packaged with an HDMI and DisplayPort cables. The HDMI is a Premium High Speed cable (18gbps), which is the same speed cable I had been using to drive my [email protected] Like a lot of high refresh monitors, Windows likes to cap the refresh at 120Hz unless you make a custom resolution. I had to do this for 144Hz as well. So I just swapped the monitor in, went into my GPU settings and created a custom display setting at 165Hz. When I went to enable it all I got was a black screen that eventually timed out and reverted. I decided to swap cables to the included one only to run into the same issue. I then swapped out for the DisplayPort cable, which ran the resolution/refresh rate just fine. So for whatever reason I can’t hit 165Hz over HDMI, but I can on DP. My GPU has HDMI 2.0 ports so I not sure why it won’t work. My Freesync range is 48-165Hz over DP.

    Conclusion

    For those wanting to jump to a larger panel, but 1440p sits a little out of your budget then this is a good option. It comes with a high refresh rate that starts to become cost prohibitive at the higher resolutions due to panel cost and the necessary horsepower to drive it. 1080p keeps the price point low enough to make such a large panel affordable. The panel displays a really beautiful picture and is great for games and even movies. The only real caveat to this monitor is the low pixel density. I would avoid this for tasks like typing/reading and other tasks that require sharp lines to be legible. I have used it for 3D modeling which worked nicely, gaming was good as well. I was able to sit back further and use a controller to play. If you plan to sit close then you might want to save up for the 1440p version.

    Affordable (AWESOME) gaming monitor in every way.

    This is purely a gaming monitor to its core. It has every single feature you would want in a monitor for gaming @165Hz; slightly missing a few things but overall I’m just gonna highly recommend the monitor now because the price is phenomenal, it’s great @1080p, G-Sync, low powered, and tons of other features through its own software. Long story short if you are looking for a great gaming monitor you can't go wrong at all here. Disclaimer: I use an Nvidia card.

    The design is extremely nice looking, I happen to enjoy the aesthetics of ASUS TUF Gaming. Many do not. The red around the base would be off-putting to some but it looks great and subliminal. Thin bezels all the way around the monitor keep it looking sleek and futuristic. Viewing angles are nice, the monitor tilts, Pivit, and swivel which comes in handy for Portrait or landscape. There is height adjustment which I applaud for this price something I wish my MSI monitor did. On the back, there is DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, headphone jack, and A/C. There are no USB 3.0 ports so don't expect them here and Nvidia's 3D Vision seems to be a dead thing now so it's not here either.

    I currently use the monitor as the third screen in a triple 27’ inch @1080p. I’ve used both Nvidia’s surround spanning options and as an individual screen within windows; Both worked great and couldn’t be happier. Very different gaming on three screens @120hz, Forza Horizon 4 looked amazing sitting inside the Cyberpunk 2077 car. But beyond being an additional screen on its own it’s fantastic with its color accuracy and there is no doubt the response times are good. Ghosting wasn't an issue for me either and I happen to enjoy trying out Nvidia's Reflex technology on Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege with this display, The additional low latency combined with the monitor was a treat. The display is great and the text and super crisp along with watching a video.

    One shining feature I love about the TUF VG279QR is "Shadow Boost" and let me explain; You know how some games can get dark in some areas? sometimes it becomes annoying. (*cough* CONTROL*cough*) well, this monitor can boost those dark areas of games you can really see. Resident Evil 2/3 Remake also benefits from this as well. GamePlus seems to be offering mostly what comes in line with gaming monitors of this price point. You can put a Crosshair, Timer, FPS Counter, and align the display through the settings menu. There is a button (and settings menu) where you can access a setting called "GAMEVISUAL" where you can set the tone of the display to match the type of game you are playing. Blue Light filter helps reduces strain on the eyes and is extremely useful if you are going to be gaming all night.

    Gaming has been a fun experience with this monitor and ASUS did a fantastic job hitting every feature and the price for gaming. From one gamer to another you really would enjoy this screen. I highly recommend this one.

    Impressive Performance for the Price

    The ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM 27" Monitor is a beautiful monitor with impressive performance.

    I use this monitor with a GeForce MX150 GPU with DirectX 12.0 on an HP Spectre 360 laptop with GeForce Experience Version 3.21 and a custom-built gaming computer with a B550 motherboard, a Ryzen 3600 CPU, 32 Gigs Ram at 3600mhz, and an RTX 2080ti GPU.

    The unboxing and setup went smoothly. The ports are clearly marked and easy to access. I love the whole motion range of the display in height, rotation, pivot, and angle. The base is a nice size for supporting the monitor but not too big on the desktop. The stand and display have a durable build quality.

    This monitor really shines when gaming. It is crazy fast, and I hardly noticed any ghosting at the 60 / 100 "tracefree" setting, also known as overdrive. Right out of the box, the color accuracy was excellent. The contrast ratio is decent for an IPS panel. I don't recommend the built-in speakers unless you don't have any other options. At least it has speakers.

    There are multiple Nvidia G-sync stickers; however, the monitor does not have a physical Nvidia G-sync module. It is a G-sync emulation to provide compatibility. Not a big deal, considering the price range, since an actual G-sync module would raise the price by $200.

    The joystick control for the monitor menu and settings is a nice touch. There are way too many settings and options to bring up here; however, the flexibility of options is nice, especially assigning custom settings.

    With the 27" screen size and a 1080 resolution, the pixel density is only 81 PPI. The edges are not smooth, and the image is a little rough. But again, for the price range, it's acceptable, especially with the insane 280Hz refresh rate. I wouldn't recommend it for photo editing or illustrative work. Still, it does a decent job for gaming and writing code in portrait mode.

    Overall: For a budget 1080p monitor, at 27", it is a strong contender with the crazy fast refresh rates and remarkable color accuracy on an IPS screen. If you can overlook some of the more minor flaws, you'll get a decent gaming monitor at a very reasonable price.

    Great Gaming Monitor

    Love this monitor! One big positive, power button is on the bottom of the monitor and not the back. I know some other budget monitors have them on the back, so with a multiple monitor setup it's hard to reach the power button. Honestly, I think 27 inch even at 1080p is fine for everyday use and gaming. Unless you have a 1080ti, good luck pushing any triple A titles over 100fps on ultra settings anyways! Haven't had any issues yet and I don't think there will be any issues soon. I've had two other 23 inch MSI curved gaming monitors for 2 years now with now issues. I would highly recommend this monitor to anyone on a budget. You'll be happy! Just for reference, I've had an super high end gaming monitor, the Asus PG348Q, $1200+ gaming monitor, and this monitor makes me just as happy! High frame rates, smoother gameplay, and cheaper on the wallet! Ultrawide is overrated and not as productive in my opinion.

    A Really Nice Monitor For a Really Nice Price

    I got this monitor two days early surprisingly. It was packaged really good and everything was in the box. I upgraded from a 60hz monitor by Samsung and I boy was it a jump. When I first used it it looked way smoother than any other thing I’ve seen. I paired it with a 1050ti but am waiting for a 2060 to see its full potential. There is only one thing however. It is not quite borderless because some of the monitor is not fully in use and you’ll see what I mean in the picture. If you don’t care about that, this monitor is for you.

    Good quality and low price

    New OS is better. The size is so much better than the 8 that I was replacing. That extra bit of screen improves the on-screen keyboard usability as well as making web browsing much easier. Picture is good. Overall feel is sturdy enough I don’t want a case. Battery lasts many hours. If all you want is to access internet and watch videos—plus a few basic apps—this is well priced and does the job. But it is not a tablet and you cannot access apps from either Google store or Windows store. So know what you are buying

    Biggest concern I have with this model is the external micro SD card support features — this device is unable to support exFAT SD card formats, limiting files to 4gb with FAT32 formatted SD cards. I wanted a device where I can quickly and easily transfer my drone footage to a larger screen in order to show friends and family, but I cannot do that with this particular model.

    Otherwise great for casual use! I would recommend purchasing a stand cover to go with it.

    3 of 3 all good

    Bought two of these, three actually if you count a previous gen I bought grandma last year (she reads from it all the time).

    If it's for a kid, get the kids version with the heavy duty case! Trust me.

    The parental controls are cool, setup with your account and then use the kids app so the youngins can't venture out into the darker web or buy apps without permission (unless if they figure out your passcode).

    Seems faster than my dumb phone and doesn't clunk out. I was surprised by the amount of apps available in the app store.

    I'll say that it's actually a boss machine for an older person or a child, the display is Top Notch, but if you're a tech wizard who dreams of making music and drawing album covers at the park, you'll probably want to go with a higher end machine.

    Great Tablet

    I bought this tablet to give to my grandson to play games on. I have an older version of a Amazon Fire HD 10.1 tablet that I love but my grandson is constantly using it. This one is a gift so he hasn't used it yet BUT I have nothing but good things to say about these tablets. The quality and speed of this tablet is exceptional and in my opinion is just as good as the Galaxy Note 10 that I also have but for a fraction of the cost. I would and plan on purchasing another one for another grandson for a Christmas gift.

    Decent

    Decent for the money. Don't expect the best, but it seems to be a nice middle ground. It did great during a stress test and has played games pretty well with nice graphics out of the box.

    My only problem has been it might need some more ram and/or maybe a bigger ssd, but the mouse and keyboard.

    Highly recommend.

    Had my computer monitor go out from a lightening storm and so I hooked up a TV to use in the meantime. TV's are designed to be viewed from across the room, not up close, so the screen was hurting my eyes.

    I went to BestBuy.com, my source for everything electronic and picked out this curved screen because the reviews were good and I wads intrigued with the screen curvature.

    Using it now for about a month and it's been great. Very sharp, very bright, excellent color after I adjusted the monitor and my graphics software. No more sore eyes when working onn the computer.

    I'm very happy with it and would recommend it.

    I wasn't sure how I was going to like the curved monitor but let me tell you, it's AWESOME!! Now I want all of my monitors to be curved. The picture is crisp/sharp/clear, the colors are vivid and bright, excellent color! When I picked up the box I almost threw it over my shoulder, I expected it to be heavy but it's not, it's very light. Definitely super happy with this purchase.

    Galazy Tab S6 Lite is perfect for me!

    I love my new Galazy Tab S6 Lite!! My previous tablet was a 7" Asus, and I simply wore it out after about 6 years of constant use. I'm finding this new one better because in that 6 years my eyes have worsened and the print on this one is so crisp and clear (and bigger, too without adding pages.) I am able to use it with my bluetooth keypad so I can respond to emails, etc without using the little keyboard -- I'm a much faster typer than "texter". I like the weight -- not too heavy to carry and fits perfect on my pillow tablet stand.

    Phenomenal Budget Tablet

    I'm enjoying the Samsung galaxy tab 6 lite and the chiffon rose color is beautiful. I truly wish it had more RAM, but its an awesome budget tablet and I'm enjoying usage. I would highly recommend this tablet for entertainment usage, such as Netflix and Hulu, along with other social media platforms. I chose four stars because there's slight lag with my 4gb of RAM periodically, but it's a great tablet otherwise.

    Really Nice Tablet

    I really like this tablet. Had since December & is still working perfectly. This light version doesn't have all the bells & whistles your phone has. You don't have them.

    1- video, watching movies is great. The colors can't be adjusted but you don't need to. The picture is perfect. The black is perfect, Nothing distorting. Too much color can result in the black or dark parts look messed up with lines or patterns or blobs. No adjusting needed. I thought I'd miss that feature,but i don't.

    2-Sound is pretty good. You can adjust that. With equalizer or simple settings set for movies,music, etc. Speakers are decently loud & in stereo. Both sides have a speaker. Sounds good.

    The speed is a tad slower to play games but still decent. Just takes a few extra seconds is all.

    Stylus,works fine. If you get another kind of stylus,you won't be able to access the stylus menu, shortcuts. The menu Only works with the Samsung stylus that it comes with. But you can access them in other areas. I hardly use stylus menu. Except to take screenshots. Lol. Most stylus work on this tablet. No bluetooth needed. Meaning,can't use stylus like the Note series has, no use as a remote. Again I don't need that function, i am close enough to tap screen.

    Overall I'd recommend this tablet. Works well. Very well made too,just like all Samsung products are.

    Best Buy is the best place to buy any electronics. They have the absolute best protection for money. If you drop it & it breaks,the Geek Squad either fixes it or replace with same or newer model. Definitely worth every cent for their service/protection plans. You want your item & money to be protected,get a protection plan.

    Great Purchase Design

    The tablet arrived on time and when it was supposed to. I purchased the tablet as "Open Box: Excellent" and the tablet came with no scratches or marks. Noticed it was listed as a shelf display but still came in excellent shape. The tablet itself is great for note taking, small games, videos, and social media.

    Perfect budget note taking tablet for college

    You could spend around the same amount of money on a lower end ipad, but the apple pencil itself costs $100. For $350 you are getting a well rounded tablet that is great for note taking for classes. This is not a snappy experience, nor is it buttery smooth, but that's because you are saving money here. It has great battery life and the s pen works just fine, and when you are not working, watching netflix, youtube or crunchyroll on this thing is fantastic. Great value all around.

    No words. I upgraded from a 144hz 27 inch TN panel and the IPS is waaaay better. For Competitive gaming especially high frames, this 280hz is the SHIZ. 11/10 recommend to anyone. I get 300 frames on Valorant so this is a must have! If you’re wanting the upgrade and don’t think this is worth it, click the order button don’t be scared.

    Awesome monitor, sketchy packaging

    I received the monitor 3 days after I placed the order, so that was a very nice surprise. However, the bad surprise was that the monitor was shipped in a regular unlabeled shipping box, and not in Asus' retail box. I don't know if that's how BestBuy sells this monitor, or maybe the person who shipped it made a mistake. It doesn't look used as well, so most likely it's not a returned unit.

    My only complain about the monitor itself is that it doesn't go very high. I'm 5'6", and I feel like I need a few extra inches for a comfortable viewing experience. I might buy a monitor arm later on. In terms of gaming, I'm coming from a 60hz panel, so going to 280hz is eye opening. BF1 at ~150 fps looks nothing like BF1 on 60 fps :) And if you get yourself one of those coveted RTX 3080 cards, then your experience is truly going to be god-like.

    This is pretty much the same thing as VG259QM, but it looks like this is exclusive for BestBuy. Definitely recommend for any gamer that can afford a $300 monitor.

    Amazing display, but the panel lottery is real...

    I love this awesome monitor, but the panel lottery is real.

    After months of research and a few false starts, I finally found the perfect display for my dual-monitor gaming/work setup.

    What else did I look at?

    I also tried a 34" curved ultrawide from LG, but the curve made me feel nauseated when using it for work. It also had a stuck pixel. That went back to Amazon.

    The top 24" budget pick from AOC felt absurdly cheap with horrible backlight bleed. Likewise, one of the two displays I received had a dead pixel. With a replacement out of the question until March, I wasn't waiting that long for something I didn't even like. Again, back to Amazon.

    My search eventually led me to the ASUS VG259QM, which I got from Best Buy.

    Because I use this setup for both gaming and work, it's important that the displays are comfortable with strong color performance and exceptional uniformity. I also have limited desk space, so dual 25" monitors is literally the biggest I could do. Likewise, these were going to be mounted to a dual-monitor stand, so they couldn't have a "chin" that would prevent them from being pushed flush together.

    The GOOD news: my search is over. I love this monitor.

    The display I'm using now is phenomenal with no serious issues and great black uniformity. While there's significant IPS glow in the corners (unavoidable, really), I don't notice any backlight bleed around the edges, nor any dead/stuck pixels. I liked the colors out of the box, but I also admit they need some tweaking.

    I also love 240hz more than expected and don't think I could ever go back to a slower display. It's been great for gaming and work alike. Awesome build quality, too. The monitor feels sturdy and was easy to set up. There's even a trick to get it to run 10-bit color using CRU.

    Now for the BAD news...

    I'm still trying to lock in an acceptable replacement for my second screen. The first had a small, dark spot in the upper half of the screen (see pics). Not a dead pixel, it looked more like a piece of dirt or dust got caught under the anti-glare coating during manufacturing. This was in addition to moderately distracting backlight bleed, so that was too many serious issues for one display.

    I ordered a replacement.

    Unfortunately, the replacement had the same "dust speck" issue as the first, only much worse, with two or three specks on the display that were noticeable on a light-colored background. I'm now waiting for a second replacement to get here, this way I can (hopefully) close the book on this setup.

    Each of my displays were manufactured in December 2020, so it's possible a couple bad eggs made it into that batch. Here's hoping my next replacement is my final replacement, with performance as good as the display I have in front of me right now. If that winds up being the case, I couldn't be happier.

    Overall, I recommend the VG259QM, but check your screen carefully when you get it.

    Dead Pixels

    Found a couple of dead pixels after running a couple of dead pixel tests. Hoping to exchange for a new one without any further issues.

    It's A Keeper

    The first thing I do when I purchase any hard drive is check s.m.a.r.t. for errors and run the extended self test. Gsmartcontrol does not work on this drive but Passmark Diskcheckup will give you smart info and run the extended self test. Crystaldiskinfo will also give you the smart info but, as far as I know, won't run any tests.

    The drive passed the extended self test so it's a keeper. Thanks.

    Good as a MacBook Air, Compatible with Windows 11

    I like this PC especially that it is compatible with windows 11 , and I would have given 5 stars but it has three things I found annoying, but not deal breakers:

    1st. The VRAM is just 128mb, this PC has the potential to be a Gaming PC, but someone decided to set this with low VRAM. Why, why really? to whomever made that decision, great just great.!

    2nd. It does support surface stylus pens, they work very well but it does not have a tilt sensor, the pen experience is not as good as an iPad, surface or Samsung device with S-pen . I was not surprised but hopping that Samsung or Microsoft would finally put the tilt feature in this PC but of course they did not. So if you are an artist you may want to consider another device. Why, why this does not support tilt?

    3nd. It does get hot from 30C to 50C at normal use; this was not a surprise for me, after all, this is an Intel powered PC. So it is not so comfortable on the lap.

    Overall this is a good PC with excellent hardware and the potential to be excellent but it is just good. Why is that, just Samsung knows. This PC is close to the mac book air from 2020 if someone wants a comparison, or a point of reference.

    Quick speed and vibrant colors

    I wanted another laptop that was inexpensive, small, and fast. This one serves that purpose. I like the fingerprint as an easy way to unlock it. I also like that when I open the laptop, it already starts the booting up process. Past laptops take so long to boot up. The one drawback is that it doesn’t have a cd drive. I’m keeping my old laptop because I can put a disk inside and view old videos and pictures. Yes, everything goes to the cloud now, but keepsake items on several disks I have will not be going into the clouds. Overall, this laptop has a quick processor, the keys light up in the background, the display has vibrant colors, and is perfect for someone who doesn’t require all the bells and whistles of more expensive computers.

    If you can't afford a 4K monitor, get this one

    My PC has 4K capability, but 4K monitors are out of my price range. I bought this LG monitor and I really really like it. I highly recommend this one if you're not willing to put money towards a 4K monitor, but still want crisp beauty in game. The image quality is great and the screen is matted so there is no issue with glare. I use this one along side my curved monitor and there is a noticeable image quality difference between the two- this one is better. This monitor has some good pre-set options such as gaming, vivid, and one that filters blue light during prolonged use. The in-monitor menu is easy to access and navigate. I found the easy menu helpful when I needed to adjust the settings while in game. Only downside is it's a bit heavy, but once you got it set up the weight doesn't matter.

    Clear Picture and Works well

    This is my second C920S that I have bought in the last 6 months. The first one I needed for my desktop to conduct meetings, Skype with family, and more. The camera has worked flawlessly in that regard. I'm using it on a Win10 system. This second one that I bought I needed for my living room to Skype through my Xbox.

    The camera features a [email protected] fps sensor, privacy shutter, dual microphones for stereo audio, and a built in stand. The stand also features a 1/4-20 threaded insert to mount to a tripod or any other camera mounting platform.

    The privacy shutter is nothing more that a flap the closes down over the lens, so it provides a modicum of privacy. For those people that are more sensitive to privacy needs the most effective way to shut out would-be snoopers is to unplug the camera after use. The great thing about this camera is it is quickly recognized and setup by Win10, so unplugging/plugging back in doesn't cause a large disruption.

    Cable length sits right at 5ft and connects via USB A. It also has a velcro strap tethered to the cable to make it easier to bundle up.

    The camera FOV is 78°. This narrower FOV limits the viewing area, which allows you to retain some privacy while on a video call or stream. The last thing I would want is a wide angle view of my basement while on a video conference with coworkers and outside vendors.

    Video quality is excellent and the clarity is right where it needs to be. In lower light conditions the camera automatically adjusts its ISO setting to keep the image bright. I have found that I can still be easily seen while in a darkened room, and only the light from my screen is illuminating me.

    The dual stereo mic does a good job of picking up audio even from a distance. This is really useful to me when I am Skyping through my Xbox. The camera is on top of my TV and I am sitting about 12-15ft away. I don't have to shout, but rather talk in a fairly normal tone and the other party can hear me just fine.

    Overall I was really happy with the first camera I bought. It worked great and delivered on its specs and performance. I liked it enough that I bought a second to use as the camera on my Xbox. It has a solid price/performance argument going for it.

  • Review by Trobadour, 10 out of 10
    Great Streamer Cam

    ---SETUP---

    The setup of this WebCam is fast. Out of the box, it was plug and play ready on my MAC.

    ---FEATURES---

    The key features of this webcam include autofocus, auto-white balance, a microphone, and a removable privacy cover. 1080P 30FPS or 720P 30 FPS, 78o wide angle lens.

    ---PERFORMANCE---

    The performance of the WebCam is great out of the box. I used it with Facetime for an online interview for a new job and the interviewer made a comment on how clear my image was compared to those he had interviewed that day. The microphone works well also if you are using it close to you. For gaming, though, I rerouted the output to a different mic but it makes for a great starter WebCam.

    ---EXPECTATIONS---

    The product meets my expectations. You don’t need a tripod to use this, as it has a hinge that can adjust to any laptop or monitor. I had a small tripod laying around and I used the tripod screw hole to place it closer to me and record me at a preferable angle and out of the way of my TV’s line of view. It worked flawlessly with OBS and I was able to set up a filter for chroma key without having to turn on my studio lights, meaning that the regular room lighting was enough to capture a bright enough image needed for a green screen.

    ---VALUE---

    The price for the Webcam in terms of value is great. For basic things like Facetime, Google Hangouts, or Skype, you will love it. As a gaming facecam, you will find its ease of use and integration with OBS welcoming.

    ---APPROVAL---

    I highly recommend this product for people who make video calls or video-conferencing as it will definitely look better than anything that already comes with your laptop or monitor. Xbox players can plug it in directly to the Xbox for streaming from the Xbox with a facecam. PC streamers can customize it even further with OBS or XSPLIT. You will love the HD capture of your camera and the price.

    Since I work from home more now, I needed a higher quality camera than my laptop one. This is still 30 fps, but the quality was greatly improved.

    Better than using a Tablet

    I purchased this web cam to ensure better video chats using our computer. We had been using a tablet and found that access was not very good and video quality was fair. Setting up on the desktop computer Monitor was quick. From a 8" Tablet to a 24" Monitor was quite a difference. The first time using was amazing at the difference. No more fumbling with the Tablet to get our Video to work and easier to see who we wore talking to.

    Dell Delivers Again!

    I am an avid gamer and build my own rigs, and for too long I ignored the value of updating my monitors as often as I did my components. While my current gaming computer isn’t earth shattering by any means, in terms of specs at its core it is an Intel i7 8700K with 32 gigs RAM and a Nvidia RTX 2070 Super video card that outputs to a Dell S2716DG as my main monitor and a Dell SE2717H as my side monitor (for web surfing, watching videos while I play, etc). Somewhat of an aged setup, but I note it because you really want to make sure you have the right horsepower under the hood (primarily in your graphics card) to make this type of investment in technology. If you are plugging it into that Gateway computer you inherited from your grandparents, or connecting a mid-level laptop into it using an HDMI cable, you probably want to look at a less expensive display as you aren’t going to access most of what this monitor has to offer (you can’t achieve full 165mhz unless you use a DP cable).

    The Dell monitor I am replacing/updating was nothing to sniff at, it gave me 144mhz refresh and 1ms response times, all while keeping my gaming experiences tear-free and artifact-free for the last few years via Nvidia’s G-Sync technology. Back when I started to study and understand monitors more as a gamer, I personally put a higher value on speed, refresh rate and minimal input lag, as it generates higher frames per second (fps). This newer monitor maintains the 1ms speed- there is zero input lag, and consequently no motion blur hindering the action. It is a true-to-life gaming experience, if you’re playing titles with high-end scene design and graphic engines. The jump to 165 mhz refresh rate doesn’t seem like a lot coming off of a 144mhz capable screen, but I actually saw a noticeable increase in framerate across a few games I bench tested it on (Shadow of the Tomb Raider, COD Warzone and Metro Exodus). I was running anywhere between high 80s to low hundreds consistently, but jumped up to the 120 at peak. With the continuity for me of having the G-Sync experience, I couldn’t tell you what an artifact or screen tear looks like for the last few years, gameplay is stunning and immersive, my only wish is that my gaming library had more titles that explored the broader universe of capabilities this newer technology opens the door to. My only single gripe about this new monitor is that, while advertised as G-Sync compatible, my Nvidia software did not pick it up as such, and only noted that “Selected Display is not validated as G-Sync Compatible’. After doing some research, it appears this problem isn’t uncommon, and Nvidia has a few great G-Sync demo programs you can use to benchmark and see that the technology is in fact working properly.

    This monitor boasts an in-plane switching (IPS) screen, which is new for me as my older monitor was a twisted nematic (TN) type, and what I thought was more closely associated to gaming (TN technology leveraged speed and refresh rates, but were generally lacking in color depth and diminished viewing angles). IPS screens generally cater more to color accuracy and color consistency (think graphic design, photo or video production or editing, etc.) with phenomenal view range. To be able to game with this type of tear-free and lag-free speed, and jump from 16.7 million colors to 1.07 billion (yes…billion) is absolutely insane. I’m was the furthest thing from a color ‘snob’ when it came to gaming monitors, thanks Dell, you just made me one. This is an outstanding gaming monitor that combines fluid speed with a new universe of color.

    Physically, as I had with the previous generation I owned, I love the look and feel of this screen. Very tight side and top bezels, and hidden buttons and a knob control on the back is a really clean look. I will admit, it was also a really low concern on what the back of the monitor looks like, but the innovative venting design is pretty slick looking, and as my monitor sits in a corner, the ambient LED lighting is pretty awesome. One small wish on a future model would to have those be addressable LEDs, since the rest of my setup is a synchronized breathing of random colors. Setup took literally two minutes, it is tool-less, and my biggest problem now is deciding whether to use the older unit as my side-monitor, or pass it along to my son who also games and plays himself on a 7 year old 1080p HD monitor. I think he’s going to become a screen snob soon as well.

    Blacks are darker than reviews suggest!

    I came from a 144Hz TN display, and this is SO much better. I saw multiple reviews that stated the ONLY issue with this monitor, is the contrast ratio. However, I would argue that the blacks are GREAT, perhaps with the exception of professional photo/video editing. Take a look at my screenshots of Phasmophobia (good game to test out dark environments) and see for yourself.

    Beautiful but updates end soon.

    This is a a very nice chrome book but will be returning because the auto update ends in June 2024. I brought my wife a very similar one last year and that one is till 2026.

    I don't know how it will work once expired but not goanna take a chance. For something that was released this year the date is not acceptable.

    There is a 11.6 which is 50 less that is also on sale and has similar expiration. I was able to check that one at the store with the help of the geek squad, The 14 inch model was not on display.

    Great PC...But cooler needs to be replaced!

    I can't say enough great things about this PC made by Cyberpower. Runs everything smoothly and every game I've played so far looks great. The one problem with the PC itself is the cooler for the CPU. The stock cooler is very cheap and is literally the only thing Cyberpower cheaped out on when it came to manufacturing. I was running temps anywhere from 70 to 90 degrees Celsius while playing games on the higher end of CPU strain. The great thing about this problem is the case is huge, so even a Noctua DH-15 will fit. Once I put that, the temps have never gotten above 70 degrees Celsius. Overall, very happy with what I bought and the keyboard is actually usable compared to what other companies ship out with their PCs. (The photo provided is with the DH-15 installed to show that it fits just fine)

    Great Buy for someone trying to get into PC gaming

    This pc has been great for the price. I’m new to pc gaming and chose cyber power as my first prebuilt pc. I was not disappointed with the the performance or appearance as the glass sides on the case let you see the beautiful tech within. It arrived quickly with all necessary items. It was a breeze to setup with included instructions. Performance has been great with popular shooters such as COD and Apex running with high frames (>100fps easily). As an engineer I have also used with demanding engineering programs such as Solidworks and have had buttery smooth performance. Included mouse and keyboard are the only gripes however they will get you by until you do your research and pick up your preferred setup. Overall awesome computer!

    Great PC for the price.

    I built a PC just before the GPU shortage and have been trying to find a GPU for it. Came across this PC and thought for the price it wasn't much more for the whole PC with a newer processor than the GPU alone. I was skeptical of buying a pre-built but I am glade I did.

    The good: Came with a Gigabyte Geforce RTX 3060TI Eagle, Evega gold 600 watt PSU, Cooler master CPU cooler, Western digital 1000 gb ssd and Wester Digital M.2 500 gb.

    The OK: The motherboard isn't what I would have used for the system but for the price of the whole system I am happy. It's a gigabyte B560 DS3H AC MOBO. I actually like the MOBO and was shock as I was expecting less.

    The PC came with 3 Antec RGB fans. I have never used Antec fan before so can't speak on long term quality which is why I say they are OK. However so far they are very quite and seem to be doing a good job at keeping things cool.

    The Bad: The system came with two 8gb 3000mzh sticks of Crucial Ballistitx ram. I would prefer 3200mzh. But again for the price I can't complain and will likely swap them out.

    For some reason all three fans are set to exhaust. That make no sense. I switched the two fans at the front to intake before setting up the pc. For those who are not familiar with PC's it is only four screws on each fan and you just flip them around.

    Overall this is a great PC for anyone looking for the listed specs.

    Great bang for your buck!

    I normally don't buy pre-built computers because they generally cost more than individual components, and it's not quite as fun as putting together your own computer. That said, this computer was incredible value for money, and IN STOCK. Which is huge in 2021. Very happy with the selection of components, well balanced in terms of performance. Everything was neat and tidy as far as cable management went, however, with all the fans set to exhaust, it was a bit of work to undo the cable management to switch a couple of them to intake. Other than that, super happy.

    Amazing PC except…

    Overall it’s an amazing pc and a huge upgrade from my ryzen 2600 and rx 570. The only thing I’ll say that you must do when you plan on buying this is to go ahead and order a different CPU fan. The one that comes with it doesn’t do a very good job and playing overwatch/rocket league I was getting up to a max of 88C before switching it out.

    Good 3060ti prebuild

    This is a great gaming rig considering the current market. The CPU cooler is okay if you switch off the turbo boost CPU option in BIOS. However, If you're trying to run the CPU to its max potential, upgrade the CPU cooler. The front fans are almost always on the opposite side(exhaust). Flip these fans around and you'll be set. You won't regret buying this system. It's great for 1440p gaming.

    I bought this monitor to use in portrait mode for coding, this is way better than my non-IPS display, very happy with my purchase. The included stand only tilts vertically (up & down).

    I don't have a AMD GPU so I was not able to get the 75Hz refresh rate.

    Something that is bittersweet: the display can be VERY bright. I had to turn the brightness way down as it was making my eyes hurt within minutes.

    The buttons don't seem very user-friendly, but I can usually just leave them alone.

    Somewhat of a Faulty screen

    I believe I was sent somewhat of a faulty monitor because on the bottom right of the screen it's seems like it's more bright than the rest of the screen, it's pretty annoying because I see it as a eye sore and it's very distracting for me when I'm doing anything

    Great customer Service

    I love my HP-15.6" Laptop Intel Core i3. When I was at Best Buy to see the different computers I was getting service from an employee that helped me out a lot to decide which would be my best computer that fits fits my needs.

    Good Buy

    Fast computer

    Great display

    Was not aware laptop Windows was in S Mode. Salesperson did not mention that to me; what it is/is not; any workarounds, etc. It was a complete surprise to me when I started using it at home. I had to learn what it is, benefits, disadvantages, etc.

    I finally figured it all out. I would have appreciated it if the salesperson would have mentioned it to me. Actually, I don't think she even knew or was aware it came in Windows S mode. That would have saved a lot of time and effort on my part.

    Overall, this laptop was a good buy.

    Cheap, Loud, but Can't Beat the Price

    For the price, you can't beat this laptop. It is true, it can be loud when the fan is running at 100%, and I agree with others, loudest fan I have ever heard on a laptop. However, it doesn't run at 100% all the time, and only kicks in when it starts up, installing updates or doing more intense activity. Laptop is mainly used for web browsing and it functions great. Came with Windows 10 S mode, easily switched it to the regular mode so I could install chrome and other normal programs / apps.

    Best monitor in it’s class IMO

    I got this on sale for $299 and I am more than satisfied. It matches my 8 series curved TVs as well. The 240 refresh rate is amazing! S Ruth img about this monitor is great! I originally purchased the 24 inch monitor and still have it (I’m going to return it) but the difference was immediately obvious and most definitely worth the extra money especially with the sale!

    Snappy 2-in-1 Workhorse PC

    The Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1 is a snappy device. For folks in the market for a solid computer for work or school, I highly recommend it. I should say upfront that I received this 2-in-1 for purposes of providing an honest and unbiased review. I agreed to review this laptop not knowing the detailed specs of the machine in advance. With no preconceived notions, I thought the laptop was impressive.

    This machine is a workhorse for those working from home or those who want a solid day-to-day computer. I spent many years in academia, I would have loved a laptop like this for taking notes in class or working on papers during breaks. This is a good device for now with some potential to be upgraded and improved upon later.

    Overview: The aluminum finish has a blue tint. It is subtle, but it still stands out in a good way. The device feels good to my hands. Fingerprints were at a minimum. Unlike some other laptop surfaces, no one will ever confuse this device with a fingerprint magnet. The laptop has a 720P webcam with a privacy toggle built-in. The display acts as a stand and provides a lift to the device so that airflow can help cool the machine. It also provides a bit of an ergonomic arch to the keyboard. Keyboard is responsive and snappy. The trackpad is large. The screen showed some light bleed on purely dark screens, but nothing too noticeable. All-in-all, I thought the IPS display looked sharp. Colors looked good. I never had any problems with viewing angles. Ryzen 5 5500U processor combined with the internal NVME SSD hard drive makes for a fast machine. The PC boots in a matter of seconds

    The screen flips back to transform the laptop into a touch screen tablet. It all works great. In fact, I think this works better in tablet mode than some 2-in-1 PCs that are way more expensive.

    While I am heaping the machine’s praises, I should point out that the battery performed great. On a full charge, battery estimator estimates you can get around nine hours. In my own experience, I averaged around 6. I played games like “Magic the Gathering: Arena”, streamed video, and spent hours online. I am used to laptops that do not last half as long. I was impressed.

    There are two USB-A 5 Gbps ports, a HDMI port, a micro-SD port, a 3.5MM combo jack for headsets, and a USB-C port that doubles as a Display Port and power port. The device supports USB-C charging. It has no other way to charge. The USB-C charging seemed fast. The 65W power brick does a good job, but unless you have the device plugged into a docking station of some sort, you lose out on the USB-C connection. I wish there were another USB-C port. I would prefer a proprietary charger and an open USB-C port, but that is me. If you work from home and are required to be on a wired LAN, you will need a USB to LAN adapter. Because there are only two USB-A ports, a solid USB hub is a necessity with this computer if you plan to have more than two USB devices plugged in at a time.

    The laptop comes with Bluetooth 5.0 and an 802.11ax wireless network adapter. Wi-Fi performance was good. No dropped connections or struggles during my testing. Range was solid for me. Still, with all the wireless devices in my place, I had a good connection.

    Comfort: This is not the lightest laptop / 2-in-1 out there. It is not the smallest, either, but I found it hit the sweet spot in terms of size and portability. Now, I like that the monitor doubles as a riser to help provide airflow when the laptop is on a desk, but on my lap, it gets a bit uncomfortable having the monitor dig into my legs.

    The computer comes with a minimal amount of bloatware or pre-installed software, but I found what does come installed to be a bit of a mixed bag. Dell has an app installed to connect your phone to the computer. I could not get the app to work with a Samsung Galaxy S10 or a Google Pixel 4. The laptop comes with a 25-day trial to McAfee. Personally, the McAfee software got in the way. Constant onscreen pop-ups and ads were annoying. I will just use Windows Defender, but that is me. Dell software that used the system’s webcam to track my head movements for purposes of positioning audio seemed pointless and just led to a system resources crash. Running software and driver updates from Windows Update worked great, but the Dell updating software that came with the machine screwed up the display driver’s software. I was forced to reinstall the software from AMD. I would recommend just using Windows Update and avoiding Dell’s auto-updates if my experience is indicative of what the experience will be like for others. Probably the only piece of software I liked was Dell Cinema which had a guide to add various streaming subscriptions in one place for easy viewing.

    Upgradeability: The model I tested came with a 256GB NVME hard drive, 8 GB of DDR4 3200 RAM in dual channel, and the 5500U AMD processor. Out of the box, this is a solid device, but I could see that 256GB hard drive filling up fast. Thankfully, Dell has a service guide online to guide any future repairs or upgrades. The components appear to be easily accessible. Upgrading the hard drive and the RAM down the line would be a good way to keep the machine running fast in the future. For the time being, I would recommend storing photos and videos either on a cloud-based service or on a Micro SD card if you are worried about space.

    Conclusion: I have been building computers for over 25 years. I always have people ask what type of computer I would recommend. That has always been a loaded and complicated question. For someone looking for a solid work or school laptop, I feel confident in recommending the Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1. It is not a gaming computer designed to play the latest and greatest AAA games. It might play some games if they are not too new or too graphically intensive. This machine was meant for the user who wants to be online, stream videos, telecommute, write papers, take notes in class, perform typical day-to-day operations. In my usage, the operating system was stable. I never had a system crash or blue screen.

    Hard drive space and RAM will be at a premium with this model. There is no wired LAN connection and there are not many USB ports. As an office computer, a USB hub or a docking station will probably be a necessity. I also found the Dell software to be a bit underwhelming.

    But those nitpicks aside, I really like this machine. It is a solid workhorse. The performance of the Ryzen 5500U processor and the battery life really impressed me. I love how it looks. I love the display. I love the keyboard and the touch pad. It is a very solid laptop 2-in-1 computer.

    I have included some hardware spec screenshots taken from CPU-Z. I hope this information is helpful. I want to thank Best Buy and Dell for letting me test the Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1.

    Recommended. 4.5/5

    Solid Dell computer.

    I am a reviewer in this invitation-only program and was provided this product for the purpose of writing an honest, unbiased review.

    I received the Dell Inspiron 14 7415 2-in-1 AMD Ryzen 5000 Series with AMD Radeon 2.10 GHz Graphics card. 2 USB Ports. 1 USB C Port. 1 HDMI Port. 1 Micro SD Card Slot 1 headphone jack. 1 integrated camera with slide cover to close if needed. I went through the setup and all the updates with Windows. That took about 2 to 3 hours total. Going through the setup was pretty straightforward. Follow the prompts and you are all set.

    I then used SiSoftware to benchmark the PC prior to testing functionality. This took about 1 hour to run the benchmark. I was surprised, this Dell it did NOT run hot. Usually SISoftware pushes the computers that I have benchmarked to the point where it runs really hot. The benchmark came back showing that the PC met the specs as advertised. Benchmark for graphics card came back with AMD Radeon 1.8 GHZ with 512 MB DDR4. Max speed was at 1.8GHz. HDMI plug and play was easy.

    I then tested transfer speeds of USB to local solid state HD. Speeds are quick. Also my wireless transfer speeds are really fast as well per wifi Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) System settings showed that this is already setup with Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX200 160MHz. So that makes this Wi-Fi 6 compatible. I have a mesh network in my house, but I am currently running on WiFi 5. I can't afford Wi-Fi 6 yet. Regardless, the wireless connection was flawless with pickup signal and transfers between rooms and different parts of my house.

    I moved on to test per my day job. I used Revu Blubeam to test the graphics card and it kept up and did not crash. No issues. AMD Radeon did really well with the complex Bluebeam material.

    USB C transfer speeds are FAST. I transferred 2 GB of 4K video in 10 secs.

    I viewed 4K raw video on online streaming and made a movie. No problems either. Image was nice and crisp. No lag. Colors in 4k look very vivid. Also settings where easy to change. AMD Radeon did well here too.

    Tablet mode is really nice. Both full tablet and tent mode is great.

    Color (physical color of metallic gray - not talking about the screen) of the PC and the weight is really good. Well balanced. Metal feels nice. Not plasticy like other cheaper computers.

    Video Calls were fine. No issues. Onboard camera was good. I like the privacy slide that comes built in. No sticky note needed to cover the camera.

    Sound and mic was great. No complaints. Speakers were good. Came with DTX option with purchase/trial. Same with Dolby Atmos is optional with trial. I just stuck with the Windows Spatial use and it still sounded great.

    Dell has always been the workforce of businesses. I currently have a Dell Latitude laptop computer with my current employer. They are just solid devices. Dell always provides great support and solid builds.

    Dell also has onboard software that is proprietary to help with BIOS updates and driver updates and other mobile connectivity options , which is nice.

    Only ding I could give this is the touch mouse kept on accidentally getting hit and my cursor moved to type things and it jumped all over the place which is typical for these types of mouse pad setups.

    Battery life was pretty decent.

    Well Done Dell. I would highly recommend this product for gaming or using for work with high graphics demand.

    Great Work and School Laptop

    Dell has created a very nice laptop for basic work, such as home office and student use. Laptops are not “one size fits all” so it is important to understand what you need before making a purchase.

    This laptop is fast, lightweight and has some very nice features. It comes with 8 GB of memory, which is enough for web browsing, office software, working remotely and most things that people would need at home, school or work. The 256 GB Solid State drive also provides enough disk space for most users, especially since there are so many cloud storage options out there. Solid state drives are fast as well, making this very snappy.

    Setup and configuration was very straight forward and took very little time. Once configured, it is always important to update Windows, so you will want to take the time to update. Dell will offer additional options so please look at what makes sense for you. The support assist is very nice, as it will provide system updates and other scanning options for your new laptop.

    This computer boots up very fast and once it is up, it provides a fingerprint reader that works flawlessly. There is no lag and everything is seamless. The display is clear and bright and looks like a high quality display. 1920 x 1080 is the highest resolution and the recommended setting. The touch screen is precise and responsive as well.

    The hinge is solid and works perfectly for converting your laptop to a tablet. Once folded over, the keyboard is disabled so you will not need to worry about accidental keys being pressed.

    The keyboard is backlit and comfortable and also very responsive. They key clicks are perfect, soft and quiet. The mouse is also responsive and fairly large. The layout is fairly standard and easy to use.

    I have yet to run the battery out after 5 days of light use. It charges fairly fast and seems to outlast other laptops that I own.

    I would recommend this laptop to anyone for everyday use. Dell always puts out a quality product and this one performs very well.

    Impressive

    Bought it for my wife, she’s coming from a sony vaio 15.6. This is our first AMD (ryzen 5 5600)laptop, was afraid of getting really hot but it works cool and fast, i think its faster than my asus TUF I5 10th gen. So far she is in love with that, speakers sound is clear and loud, screen quality is amazing, its light weight, keyboard touch is good and lit up, wifi 6 is fast, battery is long last.

    It would get 5 stars if i would not have to deal with windows bit locker error messages every other day

    Great balance of power and portability

    As someone who has used a LOT of laptops over the past 10 years, I have experienced a lot of ups-and-downs in this market. I have to say that overall, this Dell Inspiron 14 7415 laptop is fantastic choice for a wide range of users.

    This is a 14 inch a convertible laptop with the following features:

    - AMD Ryzen 5 5500U Processor

    - 256 SSD storage (could be better)

    - 8 GB of RAM (upgradeable)

    - Integrated AMD graphics (pretty good for integrated)

    - Touchscreen with 1920 x 1080 display (extra points for not being less than 1080 in 2021!)

    - USB 3.1 type A ports (x2)

    - USB C 4.0 port (x1 , also used for charging)

    - HDMI port (x1)

    - Headset/microphone combination port

    - Micro SD port

    Additionally, it has...

    - Fingerprint reader for easy sign-in

    - Backlit keyboard with 2 stages of brightness (and very well done)

    - Really decent trackpad for a laptop this size

    Quickly, for the techy folks who want to know...

    - Yes, them memory is upgradeable. Per Dell, up to 16GB

    - The SSD is the harder-to-find, shorter M.2 style (see photo for clarification)

    USABILITY

    Even at 14 inches, the screen is bright and crisp. The bezels are minimal, and because this is a convertible notebook, meaning you can bend the screen all the way around to put it in tablet-style, it means you can bend it back farther than you can with some laptops, making it very usable if you are looking at it while standing up. The keys are a nice size and spaced well. The arrow keys are scrunched together in the corner, so up and down are rather small and can be difficult to place without looking at where your fingers are located. This laptop also offers a fingerprint reader, which is embedded in the power button. The power button is in the top right corner of the keyboard, meaning the Delete key is one key to the left of where you might be used to finding it on other laptops. It may be a good idea to disable actions associated with pressing the power button if you are a frequent user of the Delete key.

    The backlighting in this keyboard is among the best I have seen. There are 2 levels of brightness, along with turning it off completely. At full brightness, there is light present around the edges of the screen, but it is very subtle and not distracting, as I have found with other backlit keyboards. The keys are also opaque enough that the light shining through to illuminate the character on the key makes that character crisp and clear, and easier to identify symbols. I would compare the lighting of these keys to a Kindle Paperwhite, where they almost appear as white painted onto the key, but equally clear in the dark as in a fully lit room.

    The trackpad is also superior to many others I have used. It is responsive and offers a good array of customizations. While this may seem commonplace, I have found recently that it is not. A laptop given to me to use at work required a special software download to even be able to reverse the scrolling direction. On this Dell Inspiron, the settings adjustments are directly in the Windows 10 settings, making them easy to access.

    The touchscreen is quite responsive as well. I am not a huge user of touchscreen laptops as I don't like fingerprints on my display, and I also may want to point at something on my screen without causing an action by the computer, but when using this in a tablet mode, it works well.

    PERFORMANCE

    As mentioned above, the memory is upgradable. Depending on the user for this computer, this may or may not be a concern. The 8 GB of memory is sufficient to perform basic work on the computer - internet browsing, checking email, opening a word processor or spreadsheet, and video conferencing. However, since 8 GB is today's bare minimum, for those who want to do more, the memory can be upgraded. As a regular user of Adobe Photoshop, a computer's performance with this software is important to me. Photoshop installed and opened with ease on this computer. However, it did start slowing down a bit once I started modifying photos, especially with artistic effects and multiple layers. However, the fact that I can do this work at all on the laptop makes it usable for me out of the box. I might need my main workstation for large projects, but quick edits are doable, and a bump in the memory will help even more.

    This laptop includes integrated graphics. You probably won't be able to hard-core gaming on it. However, light gaming should be possible, especially with a RAM upgrade.

    This laptop has 256 GB SSD, so hard drive performance is not an issue. However, I wish Dell would have at least added 512 GB into it. While we live in a world of cloud storage, software alone takes up a lot of space and can quickly deplete storage you might need for local files. This is also upgradable, but it uses the shorter version of M.2 SSD modules, so it is likely to cost a bit more to upgrade it since these modules are less common.

    Battery life has been impressive as well. After a full charge, I spent about 2 hours installing software, browsing the internet, and checking email, and the battery was still at 75%. When testing Photoshop's performance, the fans definitely kicked in and it was clear they were running hard, so that dropped the battery slightly more, but this is an intense-use application and can be expected. By the way, even when running hard, the fans were very quiet. I was in a quiet room by myself, but if I were using this in a coffee shop or other location where there is background noise, I doubt I would have heard them at all.

    OTHER FEATURES AND THOUGHTS

    The Dell Inspiron 14 7415 has a USB C port, but it also uses this for charging. To be able to use both data transfer and power, you will need some kind of hub or dongle that has passthrough, meaning the hub/dongle needs to have a USB C port that you can plug the power cable into to pass power to the battery, along with another USB C port for data transfer. It also has 2 USB 3.1 ports and a standard-size HDMI port, which is nice if you wish to connect it to a larger external monitor when you are working from a desk.

    As far as laptops of this size are concerned, this laptop is slightly heavier than some models I have seen in this size. However, in most cases, it probably won't be that noticeable. The extra weight comes from the some of the nice aluminum casing, as it is not all plastic like some lower-end laptops. It is very thin and will fit comfortably even in smaller bags.

    Another included feature that I love on newer laptops is the switch at the top of the display that closes the shutter on the video camera, which this Dell Inspiron includes. This is a physical switch that you can slide that actually covers the video camera. I usually put a piece of post-it paper over the video camera since I am bothered by the constant visibility when I am not using it, so this is much appreciated. It is also detectable by Windows and related software. When I am using video conferencing software, it can recognize when I open and close this shutter.

    Like most laptop keyboards, the function keys (F1-F12) have secondary (nowadays primary) alternate functions assigned to them. This laptop has the usual - volume up, down, and mute, screen brightness up and down, keyboard backlight adjustments, etc. However, this Dell laptop gives generous spacing to the shift and enter keys, and uses full-size left and right arrow keys. As a result, the print-screen, home, end, and insert keys share F10, F11, and F12. Insert and delete follow those going to the right, and finally the power button. This takes away functions that might otherwise be used for these keys. For example, F4 is the Play/Pause key, but there are no Skip Forward and Skip Back keys. And yet, F9 doesn't have any special feature assigned to it. I wouldn't mind this as much if this key could be customized, but none of these keys can be customized. It isn't a huge deal, but it would have been a nice add-in to allow customization of this one key.

    Overall, this laptop is a great choice whether the user requires a lot or very little from it. It's thin and lightweight, but comfortably large enough to get a lot of work done. The keyboard and trackpad are a joy to use, and the screen is crisp and bright, with a resolution that won't require a lot of left-right scrolling on webpages and documents (I HATE that on 768 resolution laptops -that should be banned on any new computer today!).

    Great computer for travel or college!

    So far, I am impressed with this little computer. The size is perfect for travel, laying in bed, a small café table, but big enough to get the job done. I have not had a new laptop in quite some time, but this computer has some pep to it. The AMD Ryzen 5000 series processor is no slouch, and you can feel it. The graphics are sharp and clean, with a screen that displays colors vibrantly. The AMD Ryzen processor and AMD Radeon graphics card work perfectly in sync with one another and the experience is pleasant, quick, nimble, and visually stimulating.

    Another thing I enjoy is the well-backlit keyboard, capable of 3 brightness settings. The long keys on each end make typing precise without accidentally hitting other keys. The charging port is USB-C which is super helpful, and the charging cable is a 65w. This model comes with 2 USB ports, an HDMI, and even a mini SD card slot, plenty of ports to get projects done, and the ability to display them and show off your creation.

    OK, let's talk about the coolest part. This thing turns into a tablet! The screen can open almost a full 360 degrees and folds flat upon its own underside to sit perfectly flat. This feature was my favorite. I liked to prop the screen up and watch movies or flip it into tablet mode while lounging on the couch or in bed. This computer has the best of both worlds, computer and tablet with the power of a computer. The 10-finger touch, full HD WVA display adds to the immersive experience, it just feels so smooth. I wish I had gotten this machine sooner.

    In all, I am pleased with this computer and can see it to be perfect for a college student, or someone who travels and needs to pack light. I would not exactly call this a gaming laptop, but I bet it could handle itself well. The one thing I did not like too much was that when the computer is flipped into tablet mode, the keyboard is exposed on the back. I do not like the idea of having the keyboard being set down on anything. Other than the exposed keyboard, this computer is great, and I will happily take it everywhere with me.

    Light and capable 2-in-1 laptop

    Verdict: This light-weight, portable, and capable laptop is ideal to bring to school, work, or while traveling. This laptop performs well, and it can also be used as a tablet with full touchscreen. It is a great option for students and professionals.

    First impressions. This computer is sleek, thin, and light. It also features small bezels and a generous keyboard with lighted keys. The laptop also has a fingerprint reader for faster logon.

    Hardware. The keyboard allows for comfortable and fairly quiet typing. The touchpad mouse works as expected. You can also do multi-finger motions on the touchpad, but these require some learning. The 14” screen is bright with a high-definition display. It can be completely folded back to be used as a tablet, or used half folded to watch movies. Since it is also a touchscreen, you can really use the screen as a tablet and navigate with just a finger. With a compatible digital pen, this computer can also be used as a writing pad. As expected, the camera and microphone work well. Of note, the webcam has a privacy cover so that you can make sure that no one can watch you through your webcam even if the webcam gets hacked.

    Computer performance. The AMD Ryzen 5 processor, 256GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM provide a great user experience with snappy responses. You can also run quite a few programs at the same time with 8GB of RAM, which is now the standard for new computers. The SSD allows for VERY quick computer startups.

    Things I love.

    - Premium feel

    - Lighted keys provide great convenience in low light

    - Privacy cover for the webcam

    - Nice keyboard that feels great

    - Bright screen with high definition

    - The solid-state drive allows for fast startup

    - The 8GB of RAM makes everything run snappy

    - Active pen compatibility

    - The keyboard types quietly and the fan noise is not really noticeable

    Things I don’t love.

    - The fingerprint reader doesn’t always work; maybe it just takes a bit of time to get use to it

    - One USB-C port is not enough. One or two more would have been great

    Overall, this laptop provides everything I need to do work on the road, and to use as entertainment for movies or as a tablet. Because it is so light and quiet, I use it on my train commute to work, and also to take notes in meetings. I highly recommend it.

    Definitely Faster

    I had a Kindle 7 for 6 years. It was time for an upgrade. Definitely faster! They have uncluttered by reducing all the redundant screens. It’s down to three. I use it for work and online meetings in Zoom. The camera, speakers and Mike work really well. It paired with my iPhone, HP printer, wireless keyboard and generic headphones easily. The battery last way longer. I only charge it 2 times a week and I use it about three hours a night. I can’t comment on durability because I haven’t dropped it and I keep it in a padded case. But I’m not hard on electronics, I had my other Kindle for six years with no cracks or scratches on the screen.

    Nice Bang for the Buck

    I needed a new work computer. Wanted a 15" to lessen the strain on my eyes from looking nat spreadsheets all day. This checked all the boxes USB-C charging, touchscreen, number keypad.

    A few days in I'm more than pleased with the resolution if the display. The keyboard is an adjustment but I'll benefit from the numberpad in the long run. Machine came with Windows 11 Home installed. Haven't had the opportunity to explore new features. Applications load fast and it wakes immediately using the fingerprint scanner. Speakers aren't that great but I have connected to an external display with speakers. I have not tweaked sound settings yet.

    Definitely not an Ultrabook, the heft is there. Not unwieldy but wouldn't want to transport daily. I considered the Samsung Galaxy Pro 360 but the Yoga 7i was a no brainer given it's almost half the price.

    I bought this monitor to use in portrait mode for coding, this is way better than my non-IPS display, very happy with my purchase. The included stand only tilts vertically (up & down).

    I don't have a AMD GPU so I was not able to get the 75Hz refresh rate.

    The wireless keyboard and mouse were a great addition to my workspace. The mouse is comfortable and easy to use. The keyboard is a good fit and the full size keys are nice. All this convenience and no wires to tangle and clutter my work area.

    Using this product for a month.

    Receiver, you can connect it.

    Perfect wireless keyboarding solution for anybody!

    I am a huge fan of this Logitech Advanced Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Bundle. Not only is it large enough with comfortable keys that are not too loud, but the design makes it comfortable for someone like me who is a college student and is constantly typing up essays, emails, you name it! I really love how easy it is to set up with just a tiny USB that you can plug into any USB-compatible device. It's super user-friendly and almost self-explanatory! I think this keyboard was a great value and it's perfect for anybody who wants an easy wireless keyboard and mouse solution!

    Here's What you Need to Know Before Buying!

    For people who want to know about this laptop unit; This laptop is the 2nd in line with the Flex Alpha Series which is the lower-cost alternative to the Samsung Ultrabooks. This unit is being released next to the New Flex and Pro series releases. The Flex 2 Alpha is designed to be the entry-level release for this year and although considered entry-level Samsung did not sacrifice power. The difference between this unit and the mainline (Flex and Pro Series) is that this year the mainline was main to be Intel Evo Platform Compliant (Evo Explanation Below; Read Evo Certification below then continue reading here). To clarify the Flex 2 Alpha is not Evo Certified but Samsung has made it a point to use the i5-1135G7/i7-1165G7 and the new Intel Iris Xe Graphics in the Alpha which is the same processor and graphics used in the mainline; which makes the Flex 2 Alpha just as powerful as the mainline i7 models and i5 models. The reason why the Flex 2 Alpha is not Evo Compliant is that Samsung did not include a Thunderbolt 4 port and instead used a USB Type C 3.1 Gen 2 port, and the NVME port is 3.0. Other than these 2 differences, the Flex 2 Alpha does meet Evo Compliant standards in all other qualifications. These changes were likely done to allow this unit to be sold at a lower price point.

    So what does this mean for you? Most people will not notice in any way the difference between Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 2. Both will allow you to use external screens and use your USB Type C devices. Most Thunderbolt 3 devices will also work with USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 2. The most notable Limitation is that since it's not Thunderbolt the Flex 2 Alpha will NOT be able to use an eGPU. If you have a Thunderbolt docking station you would like to use check the manual and see if it has a compatibility mode for USB Type-C. As for the NVME drive being 3.0 unless you specifically need NVME 4.0 (which on a consumer-level nobody but hardcore media creators will see a benefit), nobody will notice a difference in speed. As it is Ultrabooks like this are for productivity and entry-level media creation and NVME 4.0 is not a required feature (Reference Side Note 1 and 2 Below).

    In terms of the S-Pen; The Flex 2 Alpha does not come with an S-Pen like the Mainline Flex and Pro 360 does. But this unit is digitizer capable which means you can get a battery-powered S-Pen or Wacom pen and use it with the unit. Disclaimer: Please read the next paragraph to learn about the screen.

    The Flex 2 Alphas Screen is QLED while the mainline series is AMOLED. QLED is slightly more fragile than AMOLED; this means that even though the Flex 2 Alpha is digitizer ready you do run a slightly higher risk of damaging it by using an S-Pen on it. Don't get me wrong, the QLED screen is still pretty strong; I've been poking it with my fingers and not nicely I might add. My bottom line is that QLED screens would be for more casual S-Pen and Stylus interaction while the mainline AMOLED screens would be a better fit for daily PEN use. In my opinion, QLED looks much better (but this will be up to you to decide) as I personally find that AMOLED throws off my depth perception while QLED does not while also looking more vibrant to my eyes. Again this will be up to you, I am not a medical professional and cannot say if QLED would be better for your vision like mine.

    As for performance, the Flex 2 Alpha will perform the same as its i5 and i7 counterparts in the mainline in both processing and graphical power. Don't worry they are the same processors and integrated graphics. RAM amount will verify.

    Building on power for those who have an older Ultrabook looking to upgrade or just curious about what has happened in the last year. I will say Intel has outdone themselves on the Intel Iris Xe Graphics complained to last generations UHD Integrated Graphics. When Intel said that Intel Iris Xe Graphics will be x4 power they really meant it. Compared to my last year's UHD graphics model which was very limited and could barely play games the new model with Intel Iris Xe Graphics went leaps ahead of its time. I stress-tested it with a few games, rendered a video, and even photoshopped some pictures for this review. They are not special in any way because I photoshopped them quickly but man was the Flex 2 Alpha able to keep up. A+ work Intel! See below for my game test results. Please keep in mind this is not a gaming laptop and this is just an example that it can play games.

    Game Test (Playable Framerate of 49 FPS and Above):

    Murdered Soul Suspect: 1080p Ultra Settings.

    DmC Devil May Cry: 1080p Ultra Settings.

    Warframe: 1080p Low to Medium Settings.

    Code Vein: 900p Medium Settings.

    The Technomancer: 1080p Low Settings//900p Medium Settings.

    Resident Evil Biohazard: 720p Low Settings.

    Amazon LUNA: Full 1080p at Luna Settings (lol cloud games worked awesome on this over wifi)

    Fan noise is the normal amount for an ultrabook it's a low hum that you will hear. No way around it. Embrace the fan sound.

    If you want a second charger please don't go aftermarket go to the SamsungParts website and it's model number [BA44-00295A].

    Final Thoughts: For my uses the Flex 2 Alpha is perfect. I also love the body style; I love a nice rectangular laptop that when I put it in tablet mode it feels like a solid tablet. Give me a brick style any day. The mainline laptops have too many curves for me and leave a gap between the back and front when in tablet mode. This is just my personal preference so who knows you might like the curves for gripping or style aesthetics. Also since the mainline and the Alpha line use the same processors I still get the premium speed and the body style I like in a laptop. If you are an artist or in school and need to take notes I would say go for the Pro 360 or the Mainline Flex that Samsung released. Samsung really did outdo themselves in every way this year with their laptop releases. Never been more impressed.

    - Evo Certification: The product was made using an exact Intel-provided base unit to ensure the laptop meets thunderbolt 4.0, NVME 4.0 (SSD), processor speed, graphic, and battery life expectations. This basically means all Evo products no matter which brand you buy from should perform similarly if not the same as their sister counterpart. Example: A Samsung Evo platform Laptop with an Intel Core i7-1165G7 using Intel Iris Xe Graphics should perform the same as other Evo products using the same hardware. Both LG and MSI make Evo platform ultrabooks with the same configuration and by Intel Evo Platform standards all 3 devices have to perform nearly the same in terms of power, battery life and have Thunderbolt/NVME 4.0 capabilities. The difference in these units is that the manufacturer is allowed to change the Body Style and features as long as the Evo Platform standards are kept. So one brand can make a 2 in 1 style version while another brand makes a traditional laptop or detachable. But bottom line if you see Evo Certified that means it's an Intel design running on intel processors and graphics.

    - Side Note 1: An Evo Certified Product should always have at least one Thunderbolt 4 Port.

    - Side Note 2: Although the standard for your NVME SSD port on the motherboard will be NVME 4.0 when Evo Certified the manufacture who makes the laptop can still put an NVME 3.0 SSD into the port. For NVME 4.0 speeds you may need to put your own NVME 4.0 Chip into your laptop unit depending on if the manufacture decides not to include one.

    - SIde Note 3: This laptop cannot charge itself via USB and can only charge with the included DC Adapter. This laptop can charge other devices via USB though.

    - Side Note 4: The Flex Alpha Series only comes in 13.3-inch models for a 15 inch you will need to move up into the mainline Flex release from Samsung.

    Disclaimer: I paid for my laptop units myself. Yes, I do laptop reviews but this was not sponsored and I spent my own money on my units to get them and decided because I love them to write this review.

    Excellent Do It All Laptop

    UNBOXING & SETUP:

    - Samsung really simplified the unboxing setup to this and I'm good with it! Not much to it besides the laptop and the charger/

    - First impressions are that this laptop is really small, slim, and light. Even for a 13 inch laptop, they really utilized having small bezels and fitting everything into a nice size package.

    - The color and design are really modern too, just feels like an upscale laptop and nothing that is too cheaply made.

    - Upon turning it on, Windows and Samsung made setup feel quite easy. Just go through the steps, let the laptop do its job, and sure enough you are ready to start using it!

    PROS:

    - The obvious pro to me is the screen. The Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha has a QLED screen (which is Samsung's version of OLED, even though Samsung makes straight up OLED laptops), and the QLED screen is fantastic! It really makes the screen pop with color whether you are working, web browsing, or streaming something. Screens can really make or break a laptop and this one hits!

    - The keyboard is also really great on this Flex2 Alpha. It makes typing on it really easy and flow nicely while not having the keys me too clunky or not have enough feedback at all. Plus it has a fingerprint scanner built into the keyboard which is a great option for security purposes.

    - The 2-1 Design also flows really well. It switches from laptop to tablet with ease and since its small and light you never feel like you are holding an oversized laptop. Its comfortable and adds a lot of functionality to the laptop.

    - The specs on this laptop have the latest 11th gen intel chip, 16 gb of memory, and 512 gb of storage and that all really shows in its performance. It is quick and snappy while loading multiple applications and never seems to have slow moments. Plus on top of that more laptops seem to go away from having high storage so its nice to see a laptop having 512 gb for that extra comfort.

    - I do also like Samsung's software within the laptop. It works well with Dex and Samsung products in general, sometimes I feel that Windows computers with other company software on it feels too clunky but this combination fits just right.

    CONS:

    - Its minor but I think Samsung really should have let this charge via USB-C instead of it's standard clunky charging port. USB-C just offers so much more functionality and its the same thing that almost all of Samsung's products charge with anyways.

    - Although I love the screen, I do wish it had a 3:2 aspect ratio instead of the 16:9 widescreen.

    - Lastly, the additional ports are much welcomed but at the same time removing some of them would help make the laptop slimmer all in all.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    - Samsung made a "budget" version of its higher end Galaxy Book lineup but there is nothing that feels "budget" on this laptop. It has fantastic specs, a QLED screen that will really surprise you, plenty of ports for extra functionality, and a touchscreen 360 degree screen that really makes this thing versatile. Its slim portable size along with a really solid battery life will make this laptop your daily companion very quickly!

    Samsung - Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha 13.3" QLED Touch

    I have always had a Macbook Pro and I love Apple products but my retina screen cracked and didnt want to spend a lot on another laptop. I took a risk to buy this Samsung Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha and absolutely love this laptop. It is extremely light weight, the screen is super clear and vivid, and the performance is awesome! It handles all commands flawlessly and it is extremely quiet. The finger print login is very convenient.

    Light and powerful Laptop

    This is a very light (2lb 8oz) 2 in 1 laptop..

    This is also a fast little unit since it is equipped with the latest i7 processor (11th gen Intel 1165G7 @ 2.80 GHz)

    16 GB RAM

    510GB SSD

    Review of things that stood out to me;

    The QLED screen -

    Super sharp and bright. It even has an ‘outside’ setting allowing you to brighten even more in those sunny situations. Nice touch sensitivity as well. Windows pen worked great on it.

    Speakers-

    Pretty average. Speakers are on the bottom, so if sitting on a soft surface the audio will be muted. However, if you flip over the screen to prop up the laptop (Like a tent) speakers are aimed at you. Bluetooth is your best option for music of course.

    Backlit keyboard –

    this is really a bummer for me (Only drawback really The reason for -1 star). All other laptops I have I can turn on and off the backlit keyboard. With Flex2 Alpha you have a choice of how long it takes for the light to timeout, but you cannot force it to stay on. As you can see in my pictures because of my overhead lighting it makes the keyboard difficult to read the keys at times. I would prefer to keep the backlit keyboard on at all time in this environment.

    Smooth and accurate touchpad.

    I do like the feel of typing on this keyboard.

    Fingerprint reader work instantly.

    Fan –

    Seems to run a bit more than other perhaps, but it is quite.

    Battery –

    Fast charging. If watching videos or a movie, you will get more like 5-6 hours on a full battery.

    Battery saver mode 99% charge tells me I have about 8 hours left based on my use. If you do very light work, or it sits idle, then you may get up to 17 hours.

    Connections –

    Aux. Audio, Micro SD, 2 USB, USB C (Does not charge device) and HDMI.

    I powered 2 monitors with a USB C Hub, no problems there. I really like the HDMI option as well though.

    Software-

    Samsung Flow allows you to link your phone and get all tests, notifications etc.

    Also love the Samsung Studio Plus – Nice video editing and slide show software.

    Overall this is a lightweight powerful 2 in 1 that would tackle all your daily tasks. Great for students, travelers, really anyone looking for great value.

    Great product / Battery was mid range.

    This was an exceptional notebook. I loved how quick it was to navigate everything. I usually enjoy Samsung products and this was one I enjoyed. I liked how it could be flipped and turned into a tablet. And the size was just right.

    I had to get a usb-c adapter for hdmi to my tv but I appreciated the headphone jack.

    The only thing I could say was the battery life wasn’t too great.

    Functionality was 100% and using windows 11 on this was cool.

    I liked the keyboard cover options available online also. (Shown in photo)

    I purchased it a month ago and have started learning how to use it. There are a lot more for me to learn and enjoy as well with good and the latest features added to, for instance, Intel Core i5 Notebook that I bought one a few years years ago. I love this machine, Samsung Galaxy Book Alpha 2.

    Samsung is Definitely Flexing With This One

    I love bright screens on laptops, actually I’m a total sucker for them. When I saw that Samsung was really focusing on the 13.3 inch QLED screen on this Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha, I just had to give it a try.

    I think everyone will notice just how small and light this laptop is when they first remove it from the box. The laptop weighs about 2.5lbs, so it’s super lightweight, even with it’s impressive 13.3 inch screen that barely has any borders. The screen even makes a boring Windows 10 screen look amazing, it’s just that pretty to look at.

    Oh, did I mention this thing is pretty fast too? Samsung somehow was able to cram an 11th gen Core i7 in this little guy with 16gb of memory and a 512gb SSD. I’m not sure how, but they did it and it doesn’t even run hot.

    Okay, let’s talk about this screen. It’s bright, very very bright. It’s not bright enough to hurt your eyes as it’ll adjust automatically to your environment, but bright enough to always show off just how rich and deep the colors are on the screen. I own a few OLED TVs and other QLED displays and this screen holds up to any other screen I’ve used on a portable device. This screen is absolutely beautiful, no hyperbole. Oh hey, the screen rotates completely around so you can use it as a tablet too. That’s really a bonus to this already impressive laptop package, but it’s there for when you want to watch a movie or browse the web on your lap.

    All the other features of this laptop are pretty standard fare. You’ll get bluetooth 5.1, really nice speakers, WiFi 6 and a battery life that will last you all day. The only downside to this laptop that I can think of is the power adapter. I absolutely wish it was a USB C plug or something more standard then a little old school DC plug in.

    Overall, this is a very solid laptop that can serve as a decent tablet for short periods of time. Tablet use would be limited as it’s just a bit heavy to use as a tablet for a long period of time, but it’s a nice feature to have. Aside from the power plug, this laptop is an amazing value, with a fantastic screen and great battery life to boot. I really like this Flex2 Alpha and I think you will too!

    Great laptop…so so tablet.

    If you are looking for an awesome little laptop and maybe the occasional use as a tablet this is a great choice!

    As far as a laptop, It's a perfect size to fit into a small bag, it’s super fast, the screen looks amazing, It has Alexa built in, back light keyboard for low light work, awesome battery life, responsive touch screen, all the right ports I need and a nice touch with the camera privacy shutter. It also has a right and left microphone for stereo on the zoom calls! I give it 5 stars for a laptop without reservation.

    Then I began to play with the tablet mode and looked for the screen release button to pull the monitor off for the tablet experience…and….no detachable screen. It just folds over. Which makes for an awkward hold and heavy. You're carrying around a lot of extra weight in the unit as opposed to a unit that truly converts to a tablet and detaches from the keyboard unit. The detachable screen is key for people that are truly wanting a tablet experience (for me anyway). It also has the keys of the keyboard exposed as I was holding the unit (see pics) which just felt wrong. As far as tablet functionality, it worked ok. The screen was responsive with my Microsoft stylus pen and writing was smooth.

    Then I went into “tent mode” This is where this 2 in 1 is nice that the screen doesn’t detach. The hinge is firm and solid and allows for a great media experience in tent mode and you can draw and sketch easily as well. I also liked that I could really adjust the angle of the "tent" due to the solid hinge feature. I also liked that the hinge feature in the laptop props the keyboard a little bit giving it a better typing angle in "laptop" mode.

    Overall I really liked this unit as a laptop that can “tent” easily. As far as a tablet again…just so so. It functioned ok as a tablet but the heaviness and feeling the keys depress when I held it in my hands detracted from the function for me. Hence the 4 stars. If you don’t use the tablet feature much or are ok with the weight and keys being depressed then I’d say 5 stars.

    perfect compact little laptop

    Dell Inspiron 2 in 1 laptop its a perfect compact laptop for me, at first 14" laptop might be too small for my liking but overall experience it actually end up being a benefit to my lifestyle. about this Inspiron 2 in 1 its 14" full 1080p HD, running the latest AMD Ryzer 7 5700U. it does have a single USB A on both side, the laptop does not use a standard power connector it does use the USB C thats on the left side of the laptop, you might want to get an adapter incase you would like to use the USB C plug and charge at the same time.

    on the right side you also get one micro SD port and USB A and headphone jack. with 16GB of RAM it should be enought, you also get 512GB of SSD which id recommend to update it to atleast 1TB. cant forget about front facing camera so youre ready for zoom calls.

    i love the design of this laptop, the way the screen lift the keyboard to provide and support for airflow was such a great design idea, the keyboard feels great as well for me it felt premium. theres also a finger print reader, which i never use, but if youre into that its there just another extra feature to have.

    the other part about this 2 in 1 laptop is that the screen is full touch control, you can flip the screen 180 degrees and treat as a tablet. windows also have a setting for full tablet mode that you can select, it doesnt come with any stylus pen, not all pen works on all touch screen so you would probably need one that was made by Dell.

    ive use the tablet mode alot during my live stream, the size of this 14'" laptop was perfect fit for my table, i was able to placed it right in the middle to be as my third monitor during stream, ive used the tablet mode to watch my stream and chat , or wacthing movies through my Vudu account.

    overall the durability seem fine, doesnt feel like it will break easy, flipping to tablet mode doesnt feel great. it does not flip flushed on the back side of the body but i believe its for airflow. the weight wasnt that heavy its perfect weight and it feels premium as it should be.

    Both Capable and Convenient

    Thanks to this laptop, I am completely sold on the folding 2-in-1 tablet/laptop yoga functionality. Being able to fold the laptop into a tablet is hugely convenient for watching YouTube, or playing games on the couch. And, the ability to fold the laptop backwards into an “A” shape reduces its footprint enough to allow me to watch videos anywhere. It fits where the traditional laptop cannot and it stands up in places where a tablet would need a kickstand (which never works as well as intended). For convenience, this laptop is incredible.

    The formfactor is light, thin, easy to hold and carry with only one hand. It truly is the sweet spot where a smartphone, tablet, and laptop all come together into one capable and convenient device.

    The solid state drive makes booting up incredibly fast. Seriously, once you experience how quickly it powers on and boots up, you will never go back to a standard hard drive. The extra cost of a Solid State Hard Drive is completely worth it. I also truly love the fingerprint reader that is built into the power button. It is the absolute fastest way to log in and makes it easy for multiple users to access their own account quickly. Unlocking your own profile is almost instant by just lighting resting your finger on the button - it is quite impressive. Not only is scanning a finger quick, but it is much more consistent and reliable when compared to unlocking via facial recognition. Fingerprint scanning has been around for years, but HP & Microsoft really got it right on this laptop.

    While this laptop is impressive, I do have a few complaints.

    - I really do not like that the up and down arrow keys are half the size of a standard key. The split key makes navigation a bit cumbersome at times.

    - The laptop comes with a fair amount of bloatware. The harddrive has plenty of space, but the computer is always popping up messages about updating special software, running HP programs, or signing up for various other features.

    - The keys are completely flat (no contour at all)

    - The fans are impressively quiet, but the bottom still becomes quite hot

    - The metal lid feels quality but attracts fingerprints (see attached pictures)

    - The computer brags about AMD RYZEN series 7 and AMD RADEON Graphics, but the fancy foil stickers are just for show and the laptop is not suitable for any substantial gaming. Much of what you’ll find on Steam requires more power than what this laptop can deliver.

    ...But, it can handle ROBLOX - so my son gives it a pass.

    - There are not enough input ports. I appreciate the MicroUSB Card reader, but just 2 USB and 1 USB-C input is simply not enough - Especially as the USB-C port is how the laptop charges.

    The one lone USB-C port does allow for the transfer of displayport / video signal, but it is required for the charging. The logical solution is to attach a USB-C hub, but when the Power Cable is attached a hub - the laptop displays error messages about insufficient power. Either the power brick/cord that comes with the laptop should be more powerful, or there should be a separate USB-C port exclusively for charging.

    Overall I believe that this laptop offers great value as it is an impressive balance of power, convenience, and affordability. Those who require intense graphical and processing capabilities (for gaming, animation, or video editing) may want to look elsewhere, but the average user will be delighted with the features, functionality and convenience.

    Good So Far

    The Dell - Inspiron 7415, 2-in-1, 14.0" Touch-Screen Laptop - AMD Ryzen 7 - 16GB Memory - 512GB Solid State Drive says that the color is Mist Blue, but even in the brightest light looks like a charcoal gray at best with maybe a tinge of blue. This 14" 2 in 1 is fairly light weight, 5 pounds or less, and can easily be carried around in one hand and put in some sort of small tote or bag. For this MSRP, I think that Dell could have included at least some sort of sleeve or carrying case because other than the power unit, there are no other accessories that come with the 2 in 1.

    However, this unit does have 360 degree auto-rotate and can thus be used as a laptop in multiple directions, as well as, a tablet in multiple directions, too. I really like this feature for convenience sake. I also really like that this computer can also be used by either engaging the touch pad or just using your fingers, like you would on your smartphone, swiping and touching the computer's screen. Keyboards will pop up on the screen and you can fill in screens or whatever that way versus using the official keyboard.

    The very brief printed owner instructions note that this unit includes Wireless-AX, Bluetooth, Micro SD Card Reader, HDMI and USB Type-C, Waves Maxx Audio and a back lit keyboard that is great for working or playing in dim or no light. This unit does have a fingerprint reader for safety'sake. The Webcam can be shuttered because at the top where the view finder is, there is a sliding mechanism that either puts the view finder either fully open or shut for privacy and especially kids these days with Zoom and other conferences.

    The solid state drive is so very quiet, cool, and the machine is very quick, great if you are wanting to communicate quickly. The reason for only 4 stars is that I do not feel that I have put it through its paces long enough to run into trouble yet. However, the set up is easy peasy, and the battery life is to die for. I took it out of the box with some charge, charged it, and have for a long time just been shutting the covers, not even turning it off, and when I pick it up each time it is on and engaged in a split second or so.

    The only thing that bothered me was that there was no separate 10 key, I am a CPA, but maybe 2 in 1's with only 14" screens do not have enough real estate to put one in. So, other than this 2 in 1 not being able to detach at the hinge and coming with no real accessories. like a stylus pen, carrying case, mouse, or other loaded software, or 24/7 live US-based, no questions asked support like these do on the shopping channels, all is good.

    Reasonable 2-in-1

    The pros of this product would be good battery life and light weight. The display really "pops" with nice colors, and looks large for a 14" display. There's a clever feature where - when using the keyboard in a tradition laptop mode - the bottom of the display serves to lift the front of the keyboard for better ergonomics. There's a unified "key" that serves both as the fingerprint reader as well as the power button.

    The cons include performance limitations given the small form-factor. I'm accustomed to my home PC, which is based on an 11th Generation Intel processor, a lot of DDR4 memory, and a PCIe4 NVMe drive, so the comparison isn't necessarily a fair one. Like most smaller form-factor devices, getting enough information on the display can be challenging, but that's the nature of a smaller device. Lastly, I have dry hands, and I've yet to have a good experience with fingerprint readers. This is no exception - my fingers are hit or miss on the reader.

    All in all, for the money this is a good deal, providing reasonable performance and solid features.

    Nice laptop, great features & thin, clean design

    The Dell Inspiron 14 arrived in a nondescript cardboard box, not much of an unboxing experience. Included in the box is the laptop, a charger (USB-C) and a plug to go with the charger. Once opened, I was pleasantly surprised with a laptop that is very nicely designed fairly thin, clean and sleek. The top lid is an attractive metallic dark blue color while the lower half is a dark metallic gray color. I’m not sure if I like the two tone color scheme. I think it would look nicer if it were all blue.

    Setup was very straight forward, as with other Windows devices, you simply log in with your Microsoft login and your settings are applied. I like that the camera has a privacy shutter (albeit with a tiny metal slider button that doesn’t slide easily) that you can actually see when it’s activated. I have a work laptop that has a privacy shutter also, but it’s not as obvious when its activated. In addition to the 2 USB 3.2 and 1 USB-C ports, there is a HDMI port! On my 2 other laptops (1-3 years old), they don’t have HDMI ports, so if I wanted to put something on the TV, I need to use a USB-C adapter. There is also a Micro SD slot for your photos. The keyboard is backlit with a high and low setting. While we’re on the keyboard, the function keys do double duty as F1-F12 as well as computer settings (volume, keyboard lighting etc). You toggle between function keys and setting keys by pressing fn+esc buttons to lock the function keys or setting keys. But there’s no indicator to tell you which selection you’re on. On my other laptops, there is either a LED that turns on to let you know that the function keys are active, or you hold the fn key and the setting key to activate. Minor pet peeve I suppose.

    Using the laptop is a very pleasant experience, the keyboard is nicely laid out and a good size. The power button, on the upper right of the keyboard, doubles as a fingerprint reader to log into Windows, definitely a nice feature! I was a bit surprised that facial recognition unlock isn’t available on this laptop though. The 2 in 1 feature is nice, but I don’t usually use the laptop as a tablet, I find it too heavy. I downloaded a trading application I use use daily and it installed and ran very quickly. I also installed Microsoft Office and used Excel and Word with no issues. This laptop should be able to handle all my everyday tasks with ease.

    Dell Mobile Connect: As an iPhone and iMessage user, I usually have my phone nearby to read or send messages. With Dell Mobile Connect, it allows me to send and receive iMessages and text messages, in addition, I get all the notifications on my phone. It tried to mirror my phone basically. It seems to do this somewhat successfully. I can send and receive messages, it won’t however, copy all your current messages on your phone to the app. When I rebooted the PC, the conversations I had started on the PC went away (they’re still on my iPhone). I should also be able access my photos and videos from this app also, but I wasn’t having any luck. Both my laptop and iPhone are on the same wifi; the instructions on the screenovate web site shows that in the Dell Mobile access app, I need to have a setting “allow local network access” toggled in the ON position. On my phone, that setting isn’t even available (see photos uploaded). It seems the Dell Mobile Connect app needs some work, but it’s a good attempt to bridge the gap between your mobile device and PC.

    Alexa came pre-installed with the laptop, this is great, as I have many Alexa products, but don’t have an Alexa speaker near my office where I will be using the laptop. With the Alexa app, I can have Alexa turn on lights, control the thermostat, etc as if I had a speaker nearby! But this isn’t unique to this Dell laptop, I was able to download the Alexa PC app on my other Windows laptop as well.

    Overview:

    This is a great little laptop for anyone looking for a laptop for work or school. The minimal design, features and processor speed makes it a great choice and I would highly recommend it. I did have a few “cons” on my list, but they’re minor issues, not deal breakers. I look forward to using this Dell laptop on a daily basis in my home office!

    Pros:

    1. fingerprint reader

    2. Nice, clean design

    3. Dell Mobile

    4. Mechanical privacy shutter (that you can see when it’s on/off)

    5. Light up keyboard

    6. Alexa

    Cons:

    1. Can’t unlock using face

    2. 2 tone color scheme

    3. No LED to indicate whether function keys are on or not

    4. Privacy shutter difficult to slide

    Great starter laptop for students and new grads

    Dell’s Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 14” is a very good starter laptop computer for students, recent grads, aspiring creatives, or light gamers on the go.

    Other reviewers have commented on the rather minimalistic unboxing, and I for one was super thankful I didn’t have a boatload of plastic nonsense to throw away on unboxing (most of it cannot be recycled anyway). The trash was minimal and it’s a pitch-perfect approach for the audience of this particular laptop.

    The hinge design is actually one of my favorites I've seen in 2-in-1s lately. It's both smooth and substantive all at once - and comparing to a tablet+kickstand+keyboard combo (like the Surface), you'll love the ability to change the angle of the computer without it falling over and/or forcing awkward angles. It feels both lightweight and stable, which is a surprising rarity for 2-in-1’s, and Dell doesn’t disappoint here.

    There was a minimum amount of pre-loaded nonsense, which is a time-saver very much appreciated as my family’s IT person who regularly sets up new devices. Out of the box, it was good to go within about 30 minutes of setup time which seems to be pretty normal these days on Windows machines. The battery life so far has been outstanding. I haven’t needed to try out the Express Charge™ options, but it’s nice they’re included.

    I really liked the advent of the mechanical webcam cover, what I did not like was the comparatively low quality of the ONLY cam on the computer — too low of a quality to allow for facial recognition (which is probably why they included the fingerprint reader?). There is no back-facing webcam like you find on laptops in the 14-17” range, and I don’t really want to attach an external webcam, but it’s “good enough” if you’re just doing video meetings with your team/cohort. The fingerprint reader also makes a lot of sense in a world with masks in classroom settings, where this laptop is likely going to find a huge amount of viability.

    The touchscreen is responsive and works well with the Microsoft pen stylus, and it has a magnetic attach point for the pen on both the left and right sides of the screen. The touchpad is a nice size and has no weird pressure points, the keyboard is also nice to type on — no surprises there (for work laptops you don’t need crazy high-end, you just want it to do its job reliably, and it does here).

    The brightness of the screen and viewing angles are very good and they’re telling the truth about the minimal bezel. You won’t get crazy resolution out of this device or 4K (not really important in the context). You WILL get versatility and battery life, which is important in a laptop for students and new grads.

    The placement and number of the included ports (USB-A, USB-C, HDMI, and MicroSD) are also very good and support almost everything an aspiring creative will be using. The inclusion of Wireless AX/Wi-Fi 6 alongside a generous 512GB SSD HD virtually guarantees this laptop could survive an entire HS or College stretch.

    I have no complaints about this laptop at all - it’s exactly what it should be, and in the context of a starter laptop for a student, or a recent grad’s first computer, or a creative work laptop or portable “good enough” gaming machine, it’s a very good option to consider.

    Great 2-in-1 Laptop

    I was thrilled to get a new computer! As a student, it is crucial to have an efficient computer and this one is excellent for work and study. I have also been very pleased with the sound system and widescreen, which is especially good for streaming movies, shows, and videos whenever I need a break from work. The convertible feature adds to its versatility and offers an up-close look at whatever project or assignment I am working on. The touch screen feature gives the user so much control. Essentially, the computer has everything a modern user will need and so much more!

    The set-up was fairly easy. The very first time I tested the computer, I was greeted by Cortana, which led me through the entire set-up process (I thought that was neat and entertaining). All it takes is signing in to your Microsoft account(s) and there is also an easy, optional feature that links the computer to your phone. It runs and starts up quickly, without lagging. One of my favorite parts of this computer is that it has 459 GB storage space! Storage is a crucial factor that I consider with all my devices because I love to keep all my photos and important files safely stored and I hate to have to delete some photos to make space for more. It is heavier than my last computer, but it is also a lot bigger. Nonetheless, it is still very portable and the battery life is amazing!

    I always prefer having a mouse attached to my laptop and I often need to connect my devices, whether that is to connect my computer to a bigger monitor, import pictures from my camera, or charge my phone or headphones. I am happy that this computer has USB ports that enable all those necessary connections. Webcam quality can definitely improve, but it works well for a computer. The keyboard is smooth and easy-to-use.

    I would definitely recommend this laptop to any student and to someone looking for a great every-day use computer. I am confident that this computer will last me a very long time and that it will adequately meet every one of my needs and expectations securely and reliably.

    Mostly fantastic, but expensive

    --DESIGN--

    This laptop is the usual “ultrabook” form factor where it is very thin, and can fold back into a tablet form. While not unusual, it is well done. You can set it up in “tent” mode and watch a movie on it while it is free-standing. The body appears to be made of plastic, and there is more deck flex than I would expect at this price point. For the money, I would have much preferred some metal in the construction, and for the unit to be more rigid. Still, it seems sturdy enough, so this may be nit-picking. It is certainly usable. I should note that the case itself appears to be a fingerprint magnet, so it will be difficult to keep it looking nice, if you care about that sort of thing.

    --DISPLAY--

    The display on this laptop is fantastic for general use. It advertises itself as having “120% color volume.” While not explaining if this is referenced to sRGB or Adobe color space, I can still believe it. Compared side-by-side to a standard IPS display, the colors are noticeably more vivid. Being an AMOLED, the blacks certainly are black. I have no doubt that you could calibrate the color on this display to be quite accurate, if you have the equipment to do so. It is “only” 1920x1080, but that really is the sweet spot for this display size for my aging eyes. The display is also “only” 60Hz, so this might not appeal to twitch gamers, but they are not the target market. But this is, without a doubt, the finest display that I have ever used on a laptop.

    --PERFORMANCE--

    This is where this little machine shines. It has the latest “Tiger Lake” CPU. It features four cores and eight threads. The performance and thermals of this are quite impressive. It gets a solid 4391 points on Cinebench R23. For reference, compare this to a gaming laptop with a six-core i7-9750H processor, it only lost by a little, but the gaming laptop ran much hotter, a lot noisier, and almost three times as thick. So the performance is surprisingly good given the size. It is good to finally see Intel making a CPU that can compete against AMD in terms of both performance and power. The new Intel integrated graphics is also great for non-gamers. It gets a Furmark FHD benchmark score of 1926 points and 32 FPS. While it would struggle with modern AAA titles, for older and casual gamers, it should be more than adequate. Finally, it has something that I have not seen before. CPU-Z reports the 16 GB RAM as being quad-channel. Dual-channel is standard, and some laptops don’t even have that. This may be partially responsible for the impressive Cinebench score. The cooling is also apparently well done. Even while running the CPU at 100%, the fan was not obnoxiously loud and the chassis did not have any apparent lap-burning hot spots. There is ample storage for almost anybody, as it has a 1TB solid-state drive.

    --CONNECTIVITY--

    This is very much a mixed bag: a strange combination of awesome and disappointment. However, given the extra-thin nature of the body, I can understand why they did what they did. First, the bad: there are no HDMI or USB-A ports at all. The ONLY connectivity consists of three USB-C ports (one being a Thunderbolt), one micro-SD slot, and one headphone jack. That is it. If you have a common flash drive, you won’t find a place to plug it in without an adapter. If you want to hook this up to a television, make sure to keep a USB-C to HDMI adapter on hand. However, the USB-C ports are perfect. You can charge the laptop using ANY of the three ports, and all three also support displays. I managed to get one USB-C port to drive three monitors (two are 1080p and one is 1440p) with a suitable docking station (using DP alt mode: not Thunderbolt, and not DisplayLink). Even my gaming laptop can only support two displays at full resolution.

    --INTERFACE--

    The keyboard seems to be of fine quality, and I encountered no problems with it. It is backlit, with three levels of brightness. It also features a shrunken numeric keypad on the right, so the center of the alphabet portion is shoved a little to the left. The numeric keypad also holds your movement keys (home, end, pages up and down), so you can have those or the numbers, but not both at the same time. Also in the upper-right corner is the power button with the fingerprint sensor (no unlocking the computer with your face). The touchpad is gigantic, and works well. The speakers did not provide any surprises given the size. The bass is a little stronger than expected, but still not very pronounced, and the volume is adequate for listening to videos, but certainly not room-filling. Big sound requires big speakers, and there just isn’t room. Finally, the laptop came with a pen. This works well, and should allow for easily taking notes and drawing (with the right software). A cursor is displayed under the pen when it just gets close to the screen, but nothing is activated until the tip touches the display. It also has a button that brings up useful pen options. One of the best things is that it does not appear to need a battery at all. No more trying to find strange “quadruple-A” batteries or forgetting to charge it. If there is one minus, it is that the pen might be easy to lose. There is no place to store it. It seems magnetic, and it sticks to the bottom of the keyboard area when the unit is opened, but there appears to be no place to put it when the laptop is closed where it would be safe enough to not drop it. The included quick start guide also gave no guidance on pen storage.

    --BATTERY--

    I have not had it enough to exhaustively test the battery, but it certainly seems to last a long time, depending upon usage. I used Firefox to stream a YouTube video (full screen, 50% brightness, audio muted) for three hours, and the battery went from 100% down to around 70%. This implies that the battery would fully die after about 10 hours. If you are just doing light office work (word processing, spreadsheet, etc.) I suspect that the battery would last much longer. This should easily last an entire day of school or work. The included USB-C charger is TINY. I would expect a charger that size to be suitable for a phone, but it actually supports 65W charging.

    --CONCLUSION--

    While it commands a premium price, this is nearly the perfect ultrabook. The only things lacking are: USB-A and HDMI ports, and a stiffer chassis.

    Good touchpad

    Some provided apps are useful

    Touchscreen

    Extremely small bezels

    Stylus included

    Fast fingerprint scanner

    Stable screen during usage despite thinness

    Switchable cooling profiles for performance or silence

    Cons

    Anemic downward firing speakers

    Battery life much shorter than stated

    Drivers still not stable

    Screen has a lot of glare

    Blue finish is a fingerprint magnet

    Includes bloatware with separate app store

    1080p resolution on large screen reduces sharpness

    No storage for stylus

    Rubber tip on stylus doesn’t feel natural and catches dirt

    “Pro” version comes with Windows 10 “Home”

    16:9 ratio feels extremely long in tablet mode

    Large bottom chin

    Lackluster webcam

    No Windows Hello Camera

    Poor touchpad palm rejection when typing

    Zero key in non-standard place on number pad

    Minor OLED PWM screen flicker

    The Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 looks to have chosen to compete in the upper range of 2-in-1 Ultrabooks. Samsung’s focus with this seems to be thin and light with heavy integration to add value if you have a Galaxy Phone. It’s not to say you can’t use those features without one, but their functionality is enhanced when you do.

    Design and Features

    The design is extremely thin and deceptively light and very understated with only the Samsung logo embossed and two removeable stickers below the keyboard. In fact, it’s so thin it would be near impossible to house a standard USB port. Instead, it has 2 USB-C ports, one USB-C/Thunderbolt port, and a micro-SD card slot. If you still have standard headphones, you will be happy to hear it still has a headphone jack. Despite being so thin, the metal chassis makes it feel stronger than it you would expect. There is some minor deck flex in the keyboard, the center of the bottom panel flexes, and the bottom center of the screen also flexes but those areas don’t seem to be noticeable during regular usage. You can pick it up from a corner and it will hold it’s shape without warping. The power button doubles as a fingerprint reader as the webcam does not support Windows Hello. In the box is a stylus which has a slightly rubbery texture, USB-C charging cable, and power adapter. The power adapter is so small it seems to be gallium nitride which means even though it is 65 watts it is nearly the same size as a standard cellphone charger.

    Setup

    Once logged in you will find a lot of added apps. Some are bloatware, but a lot are Samsung’s own apps to extend functionality for Galaxy devices much how they do to Android on their phones. Many are nearly identical to their Android counterparts. Some apps are useful, such as a screen recorder or the creative app to go with the stylus while others are questionable at best such as the webcam beauty filters. The good thing is you can fully remove any applications you don’t want. That said, if you daily drive a Galaxy phone many of these apps will enhance the overall experience as you get Dex, Flow, Notes, Gallery, Voice Notes, Nearby Share, and others which directly tie into the Samsung ecosystem. The good thing is if you don’t use them, Samsung seems to have done a good job preventing them from bogging down the system.

    Performance

    Initially, performance was hit or miss with random errors and slight instability. After a round of firmware and driver updates the speed and reliability has improved noticeably. Overall performance feels snappy with no unexpected slowdowns. A nice touch is by default. The lid action shuts off the system versus standard sleep so you shouldn’t have it waking up in your bag later. The moment you open the lid the startup feels as instant as if it were in sleep mode. You can quickly log in with the fingerprint scanner, although a Windows Hello Camera would have been nice.

    The keyboard provides a good travel for the thickness. Keys have a distinct activation point with minimal wobble in keys and some extra travel after activation. Even in long typing sessions it feels comfortable. The main adjustment was the size of the keyboard. Key spacing is a bit different causing a small adjustment period to adapt while the number pad is a different story. If you bought this for the separate number pad and are proficient in 10-key touch, the offset of the 0 key will be frustrating. Instead of 0 being below the 2 or a long button between 1 and 2, it is only under 1. Often when you want to press 0 you end up hitting the decimal point instead. The trackpad inertia is well done feeling very natural making for pleasant usage with no unexpected gesture or click activations. There is a noticeable “rattle” on a tap click. It does cheapen the overall feel, but the consistency suggest it is by design. If there was any criticism about the touchpad, it would be the palm rejection. While updates have improved it, you can still occasionally cause unwanted movement while typing as the system registers your wrists resting on it typing as actual movements. Hopefully, Samsung will improve this during updates but as it stands now the issue is minor.

    Tablet use is, unsurprisingly, a compromise. The size and 16:9 aspect ratio makes tablet usage workable but not great. The huge chin to one side gives an odd offset feeling and if you put your fingers in that area to hold it you can feel the bezel flexing taking away from the premium feel a bit. While it would be nice if the S-Pen had a way to store it, the extra thickness is appreciated as it makes using the pen more confident. However, the rubberized tip has a bit too much grip. It seems Samsung was trying to provide friction for a more natural writing experience, but the stylus tip rubs enough to catch anything on the screen hindering the overall feel and the rubberized tip doesn’t glide as smoothly as a pen or pencil. What it does offer is a battery free experience with the same menu found on the Note lite that comes up with you click the S-Pen button. While nice, the button is very sleek making it hard to feel exactly where it is located. At 15 inches, using the convertible as an easel would seem a better use case. In that scenario, the main issue is the thinness means you will need to support the screen as your write or draw.

    Speakers feel like and afterthought on the 360. They are downward firing, but worse is that they don’t even get very loud. In quiet rooms this could be ok, but if you are trying to watch a video and there is any ambient noise it is sometimes impossible to hear particularly on some videos where the gain is set very low. In most cases the audio is good enough, but any Galaxy phone can easily outperform in sound quality and volume. The screen seems the exact opposite. While a 16:10 or 4:3 aspect ratio would have been nice for productivity and tablet mode, the 16:9 is well suited to watching videos. The Super Amoled produces inky blacks. It still exhibits some PWM flicker in certain lighting conditions, but the effect is mild. However, some might think their screen is failing because if this. Areas of the screen can become as dark as the surround bezel and just disappear. Light colors on the black background remain crisp with no unwanted blooming. Colors are accurate but just like Galaxy phones you can set your color profile to your liking. You can choose punchy and vibrant, subtle and accurate, or auto mode which determines the setting for you based on what you are doing. There is a light sensor which can help keep the screen from being too bright in dark rooms or crank the brightness all the way up when outdoors. Outdoors is where this panel struggles the most. While Samsung doesn’t seem to list the maximum brightness, the screen does seem to get bright, but any hope of overcoming bright light or sunlight is diminished by the heavy glare caused by the screen. While the glossy screen looks nice, it means that even in a moderately lit room you effectively have a mirror. In some cases, changing screen angles can alleviate this but just be prepared to accept the glare or possibly add an anti-glare screen protector.

    In today’s time talking about the webcam seems to be a must. If there was one word to describe the webcam it would be passable. Samsung knows how to make good, compact cameras and the one in this system seems an odd miss. They add beauty modes that seem more of a gimmick but the camera struggles in anything but very bright light and even though only looks workable. It would be fine for video conferencing but not much else. The microphones do work rather well, so that seems to confirm their focus. That said, the poor quality camera does tarnish the overall polish of the otherwise solid system.

    Final Thoughts

    There is so much more that could be said about this 2-in-1. Samsung added a ton of features, mostly useful, to enhance functionality and customizability to what is already a nice system even considering the odd compromises. The best way to describe it is if you have ever used a Galaxy phone. While they duplicate features, it’s often because they are improving them. Much like their newer phones, the additions on the Galaxy Book Pro 360 don’t seem to come with much, if any, performance hit. If you own a Galaxy phone that you are happy with and you are in the market for a laptop or 2-in-1, the Galaxy Book Pro 360 would be a nice fit. For others, it should be on your short list of choices as Samsung has done a nice job of making a solid, high performance 2-in-1 Ultrabook.

    Powerful 2-in-1 With Great Battery Life & Features

    ----- Summary -----

    Verdict:

    If you are looking for a portable 2-in-1 laptop with all-day battery life and great performance, the Galaxy Book Pro 360 might be for you. There is a lot to like about it, such as the thin and lightweight design, beautiful screen, long-lasting battery, great keyboard, and included S Pen. Due to the poor webcam quality and lack of built-in stylus storage, it is just shy of a five-star laptop. Despite that, I am very pleased. Especially for Galaxy device owners, the Galaxy Book Pro 360 is definitely one to consider.

    Pros:

    - Thin and lightweight, especially for a 15-inch laptop

    - Beautiful AMOLED screen

    - Premium build quality

    - Long battery life

    - Comfortable typing experience

    - Seamless experience for Galaxy device owners

    - S Pen included in the box

    Cons:

    - Webcam quality is subpar

    - No built-in stylus storage

    ----- Details -----

    Design:

    Laptops have been getting thinner over time, but what Samsung has accomplished with the Galaxy Book Pro 360 seems impossible. How is such a powerful laptop with a very long-lasting battery this thin? It is astounding to me, and so is the weight. Especially for a 15-inch laptop, the super sleek design is a game-changer for me, since I am often transporting my laptop on the go. With the Galaxy Book Pro 360, I can have a large screen without sacrificing portability. Even with such a thin and lightweight design, all the components feel solid and of high quality. To test the 360-degree hinge, I have been frequently trying different modes (laptop, tent, and tablet) and have noticed that the hinge is very sturdy. As for the ports, there is a decent selection that includes three USB-C (one supports Thunderbolt 4), a headphone jack, and a MicroSD card slot. If you use any USB-A accessories, you will need an adapter to use them with this laptop. Typing on the keyboard feels very comfortable. I like that the right side of the keyboard has a number pad which can also be used as an extra arrow d-pad that includes Page Up and Page Down, as well as Home and End keys. These are enabled when Num Lock is off. Rounding out my comments on the design, the trackpad is huge. I really appreciate that there is plenty of room for scrolling or using pinch zoom.

    Screen:

    The AMOLED screen is stunning. Whether I am inside or outside (even in direct sunlight), it is bright enough for me to see what is on the screen, and the colors are vivid. There are several color profiles available in the settings that allow you to customize the screen mode to your liking, or you can just go with “Auto mode” which will switch color profiles automatically based on what you are doing. Although not visible to the naked eye, Samsung says the screen reduces blue light which can lessen eye strain. I have had several long working sessions on this laptop and have not noticed any eye strain, so I think there might be some truth behind it. This is the first 15-inch laptop I have owned in a while, and I quickly realized that the extra screen space is nice to have, especially since I often find myself with multiple windows open at once.

    Performance:

    I purposefully ran numerous apps and videos at once to gauge the Galaxy Book Pro 360’s performance, and it handled everything with ease. Nothing crashed or had any lag. I would likely never be running that much at once, but it is nice to know this laptop can handle just about anything you throw at it.

    Battery Life:

    One thing I look for in a laptop is a battery that can last through a normal workday (8+ hours of continuous use), and the Galaxy Book Pro 360 easily hits that mark and then some. I would say that I average about 10 hours of battery life when running multiple apps and using numerous tabs in my browser. If I just use it for casual browsing or entertainment, I can get even more.

    Features:

    An S Pen is included in the box, and I have been using it often to write notes. I am happy to say the writing experience is great, and of the little doodling I did, the drawing experience seems great too. Since taking notes digitally is part of my weekly routine, I am glad the S Pen makes it easy to write legibly with little error. My only wish is that there was a slot to house it on the laptop, but at least it can attach magnetically. Since I usually participate in multiple video calls throughout the week, having a webcam on my laptop is a must. Unfortunately, the webcam quality on the Galaxy Book Pro 360 is subpar at best. I was hopeful that the various filters might help, but they do not. It always seems to look a little blurry and grainy, and those on the other end of the video calls agree, which is not acceptable for a premium laptop. The poor webcam quality came as a surprise to me because everything else about this laptop has been impressive. Moving on to some of the other features that I do like, there is a fingerprint sensor in the power button that works with Windows Hello. It has proven to be a reliable, quick, and secure way to unlock the Galaxy Book Pro 360. There are also several Samsung apps pre-installed that enable a seamless experience if you own other Galaxy devices. For example, Quick Share allows you to instantly share files, and Samsung Notes syncs across all Galaxy devices. As a Galaxy Note phone owner, I appreciate having apps like these that make multitasking or transitioning from my phone to the computer (or vice versa) very easy.

    Overall great laptop (with a horrible web cam)

    We’ve been relying on our laptops more than ever in the last year, and shortages have caused choice to usually be limited to the very cheap or very expensive, with many of the mid-range systems having been scooped up by people needing to work and/or school from home this year. So, the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 enters the scene as a not-so-cheap laptop with higher end features, but still not among the top priced competitors.

    The Galaxy Pro 360 is a beautiful machine. It’s incredibly thin and light at around 3 pounds and thin as a typical smart phone. The Mystic Navy color is very attractive (though it does attract fingerprints easily). Being so thin, you have one thunderbird port, and three USB-C ports with a microSD card reader and headphone jack, but unfortunately that thinness excludes an optical drive, HDMI port, or any standard USB ports (there is no USB-A to USB-C adapter in the box – boo). A 65 watt fast charger and cord is included, so charging won’t take long at all. Samsung claims up to 20 hours of battery life per charge (I got more like 8 to 11ish, in real-world use; yours may vary depending on how you use it).

    The standout feature of the Galaxy Pro 360 is the very nice 15.6”, 1080p, AMOLED display. It’s not the very brightest outdoors, but bright enough for my uses (indoors), and being AMOLED, the colors are saturated and the blacks stand out very well. You can swivel the screen from standard use to tent mode, or all the way back to tablet mode. A Galaxy s-pen is included in the box – it’s larger than the s-pens you see with Note phones, but feels good in the hand. With this pen, you can do a lot on the Pro 360’s touch screen with the included Samsung software; take hand notes, copy areas of the screen for screen shots, notate web pages, sign documents, edit videos, screen record, and more. It takes a little practice, but comes in very handy. There’s no slot in the laptop to slide it into, though – but it will magnetically stick to the lid.

    The keyboard (lit) is a bit thin, but still has some tact to it when typing. Not the best I’ve used, but not bad. If you’re a hard typist you’ll feel a little flex but not terribly so. It does include a full numeric keypad on the right (slightly smaller than standard size). A fingerprint reader key on the upper-right doubles as the power-on button. The speakers are more on the side/underside and are at best average, not being very loud and a lacking bass; ok for general use and with tweaking can sound better, but if listening to serious music, you’ll want to use a Bluetooth speaker. The one VERY bad part about the Pro 360? The web cam. Ugh… 720p (!), not very sharp, and very poor in lower light. This is my one HUGE complaint. Samsung put a $350 laptop web cam on a $1,500 laptop, in a time when more than ever, people are relying on video conferencing for work and school – why, Samsung… why?

    My model has a newest generation i7 processor, 16 gigs of RAM, a very fast and nice sized 1 terabyte SSD drive, and built-in Iris graphics which works surprisingly fast for integrated graphics. You won’t have an issue doing all of your daily work, photo editing, and even video editing so long as you’re not rendering a Hollywood blockbuster. Most games except the most high-end should work fine. Mine didn’t stumble at all, no matter what I did. My Galaxy ear Buds connected seamlessly with the laptop, and if you are part of the Samsung ecosystem, you can also connect many of Samsung’s Galaxy phones to the Pro 360 to swap data and interact.

    I MOSTLY love the Pro 360. I love love love the screen, the beautiful body and overall build quality, the color, and the basic specs being speedy, along with the s-pen’s convenience. What I don’t like is the sound quality from the speakers, lack of legacy ports (USB-A and HDMI), and the dare I say it again, horrible web cam. So, as long as you realize you’ll probably need to use an external speaker for real serious music playback, and third-party web cam with this, many should feel ok with this laptop. Also again, remember to buy a USB-A to USB-C adapter if you plan on using older accessories with it. Recommend with good marks, minus a star for the web cam.

    Sleek and Dazzling!

    Samsung’s Galaxy Pro 360 delivers productivity when needed and converts to an even more impressive entertainment companion thanks to a perfect blend of software and hardware. If the past year has taught us anything, it is more important than ever to find that balance between work and play amidst everything else.

    The formfactor and lightweight of the Galaxy Pro 360 are very captivating. Enclosed in an aluminum chassis (Mystic Navy Blue in my case), it weighs just a little over three pounds (3.06 lbs.) and has a very minimalist layout. The left side houses one of the two provided USB Type-C ports. The other items located on the left side are the operating status LED and a Thunderbolt 4 port. On the right side can be found the second USB Type-C port, a MicroSD Multi-media card reader (micro SD, micro SDHC and micro SDXC) and a headphone out/microphone in combo. In addition to charging USB Type-C devices, these ports (and the Thunderbolt 4 port) can each be used as the charging port for the PC via the included 65W USB Type-C adapter. My configuration had a 4405mAh 4 cell Li-ion battery that is rated for 20 hours.

    Two AKG tuned speakers rated at 4W are located underneath the computer along with the fan vents. The sound is amazingly clear and doesn’t appear negatively impacted by the speaker location. The backlit keyboard has a numeric pad and is also spill resistant. I found the keystroke travel acceptable given the overall size of the PC; it is only 0.47 inches at its thickest region by the hinges. The multi-gesture touchpad is generously sized and physically clicks. The power button also doubles as a fingerprint sensor/reader for security. Setup is easy and works very well.

    Underneath the hood is an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor (2.8GHz up to 4.7Ghz with 12MB L3 cache). The processor is also Intel Evo-certified which simply put means the device has been verified to provide top notch mobile performance such as instant wake, exceptional battery life and responsiveness. In my experience, even on the battery life focused setting, the Galaxy Pro 360 is quick in performance. Assisting the snappy CPU is 16GB of RAM for multitasking; the integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics card also uses this for video memory and is more than adequate for non-intensive video tasks. The RAM appears soldered to the motherboard though implying no possible upgrades. 1TB SSD for storage is more than enough for average use. Given Samsung’s history with SSD, you can be assured of longevity. For connectivity, there is Bluetooth 5.1 (low energy use, quicker connections) and Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+) on the new 802.11ax standard.

    The centerstage of the Galaxy Pro 360 is the 15.6” glossy Super AMOLED touch screen. With a 1920 x 1080 (FHD) resolution and an aspect ratio of 16:9, it is a real joy to use. To be expected with the Super AMOLED technology employed in most Samsung tablets and tablets, colors “pop” and are brought to life with remarkable contrast ratios. Blacks are true blacks as the screen does not illuminate those areas, helping conserve battery unlike LCDs. Another advantage over the LCDs is the lack of light "bleed" around the screen edges. In addition to an Auto option, there are four other modes to choose from for content viewing: Vivid, Natural, PhotoEdit (photo editing) and Movie. Brightness is adequate, however, to be expected with a glossy screen, outdoor use can be a little challenging.

    As the name suggests, the rather sturdy hinges offer 360-degree rotation for conversion to either tablet or “tent” mode for an alternative viewing setup. Needless to say, the PC comes “binge-watching” ready. Above the screen is housed a 720p HD camera, a video camera LED indicator, a microphone with a dual array setup and an ambient light sensor that not only controls screen brightness but also the keyboard illumination.

    In addition to accepting touch input, the included S Pen can be used to take handwritten notes via the included Samsung Notes app. This iteration is ergonomic and feels more natural than its smaller Galaxy Note counterparts. It’s beveled to help prevent rolling and can magnetically attach to the chassis. There’s no defined storage for it by default but Samsung already has a case that will protect both the laptop and S Pen.

    Pressing the S Pen button while hovering over the screen delivers the S Pen features via Samsung’s Air Command. Highlights of the features are listed below:

    • Samsung Notes - Note creation via text or handwriting/doodle that can also capture audio and images

    • Smart select - For selecting, sharing or saving content. App can extract text from PDFs or save videos as GIFs

    • Screen write - Captures screenshot for scribbling or drawing

    • Live Message - Records handwriting or drawing action that is saved and played back as an animated file. Adds a personal touch to messages

    • PENUP - Samsung’s app for sharing and viewing Pen generated content globally. The app also provides coloring activities and live drawing tutorials to help develop sketch skills

    • Show Window - When connected to an external display (via an optional USB-Type C/Thunderbolt 4 to HDMI cable), selected area on the Galaxy Pro 360 can be projected in full screen on that external display

    Two other notable software are detailed below:

    • Link Sharing: This allows you to share content via a link. It conveniently has a two-day expiration; an inbuilt Dropbox

    • Samsung Security: Samsung deploys its own suite of security promoting features:

    a) Privacy Folder – Secures content in password protected folders

    b) Secret Screen – Uses window overlays of compatible apps to thwart prying eyes

    c) Block Recording – Prevents unwanted microphone or camera recording

    d) Security Cam – Emails pictures of failed log in attempts by unauthorized persons

    Samsung has come a long way and is no doubt a formidable force in both mobile and television industries. The Samsung Galaxy 360 is a very good effort to deliver some of its best innovations from both sectors in a very compact PC. Familiarity with Samsung's devices and software heightens the excitement but newbies will feel right at home too. The Galaxy Pro 360 is poised to be the device to seamlessly tackle both work and play, as we adjust to the new normal working from home.

    Excellent, light and powerful 2 in 1

    Samsung has hit the ball out of the park with the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360. If you ask me, this is the only Samsung laptop as of yet to be good enough to warrant the Galaxy name. It is a beatiful, light and powerful machine that clocks in at a very light weight. It has no 3D gaming chip, but so far has been able to play many of the Xbox and Steam games that I've thrown at it (granted it gets quite hot and sometimes freezes based on the complexity of the game) Halo, Mechwarrior 5, and Forza 7 worked great, granted you do mot get all of the visual bells and whistles. However, this is impressive coming from a thin ultra-book 2 in 1. The screen is not 4K, but is OLED and looks mighty impressive and sharp.

    My biggest gripes are the webcam and usb ports. It comes with lightning and usb-c so a USB-C to USB adapter or hub is necessary. I understand that this was done to keep the laptop as thin as possibe and I applaud them for that. However, it makes the Galaxy Book less portable when having to also carry around a hub or adapters. The webcam is overly bright and pixelly. Not a fan, but also not a complete deal breaker, especially when a clipon webcam can be gotten for about 30 bucks.

    Also, the camera is not compatible with Windows Hello, but the fingerprint scanner works quite well.

    In the end, I am very pleased with the Samsung Galaxy Book and could go on and on about it, but you're probably already bored with me.

    Try it, you'll like it!!

    Impressive 2n1

    So I got this Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 to replace my last convertible that I handed down.

    First this thing looks really good! The design and feel are really nice! It’s slimmer than my old convertible while having a bigger screen. It is a bit slippery. Yes I know it’s a laptop but it’s also a tablet and in that mode it can be a bit of a handful to hold.

    Performance far exceeds my needs for basic laptop use (email, web browsing and simple office type work.) So for its performance is great with the Intel Corei7 and 16gb of ram. Start up was fast once all the Windows updates were done. Programs loaded fast and switching between was as well.

    The AMOLED screen is gorgeous! Pics really don’t do it justice. Videos and pictures look great on it. The included S pen is nice and it’s size make it comfortable and easy to use. Pen input worked well while doing some simple coloring and notes. The only down side is that there isn’t a way to attach the S pen to the laptop. I’m guessing because of its size which helps with it’s usability but it would be nice to have something on the laptop to hold it. Touch input was also extremely smooth almost like using a huge Samsung Galaxy phone lol

    I’m not much of a gamer but I did download Asphalt 9 legends to see how the Galaxy Book Pro would do? I was able to play with the highest settings with no lag or stuttering at all. The screen really shines here. I didn’t have a controller to use so played in tablet mode. This thing is on the bigger side of course so it does make it challenging to play on but doable.

    If your in the market for a 15.6” convertible you should definitely put the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 on your short list!

    About my new laptop

    The Samsung Galaxy Book 360 has the most power I have ever used in a computer. The startup of Windows 10 is instant. It has no drag. The laptop connects directly with my Samsung phone for everything from calls to downloads.

    I have begun editing video on the laptop and it has exceeded my expectation.

    Fantastic Product!

    I've been a fan of the Microsoft Surface Pro lines since its inception. Not much of a difference between the Surface Pro 6 and this Surface Pro 7 though. Appreciate the newly added USB-C port but Microsoft should've already had it on the Surface Pro 6. Overall, great product all around.

    Finally found my new laptop

    I had a lot of problems trying to replace my nearly 3 year old Dell XPS13. First of all it was an i7 with a terabyte SSD and 16 GB RAM. 4K HDR screen was gorgeous. I didn't NEED a replacement, but I'd never kept a laptop that long, and I missed the tablet format of my Spectre X360's I had before it. So first I tried a Surfacebook, but it wouldn't work with my Dell WD15 USB C dock. I finally got the multimonitors to work, but it didn't have enough power to charge. I didn't want multiple plugs and I didn't want to buy a dock for it.

    Then I tried a different version of this, the i5 base model Surface Pro 7. I already knew the format, I have a Surface Pro 4 that my son and I use for building Lego sets, since we like the electronic instructions rather than the paper. But that Surface Pro 7 also didn't work well with the multimonitor setup with that Dell WD15 dock. Then I tried the 2020 Spectre X360 15" with the discrete video option. Yes, still issues with the dock and multi monitor. So then I finally tried the new 2020 Spectre X360 14 inch. When that didn't work well with the Dell dock, I purchased a Thunderbolt 3 dock that should've worked well with it, and still had issues.

    I finally saw they had a really great sale on these higher end Surface Pros, so it was worth getting this and simply buying the Surface Dock 2 and bypassing issues with my Dell dock.

    And it's been a nearly perfect result.

    It is a bit of a performance hit for the lower power i7 this has, but for my needs, the things I do like transcoding video files are not a constant, so I don't mind the performance drop. The 4k HDR screen was nice, but I don't watch movies on these, so I didn't really lose anything there.

    I do require something I can use on my lap on the couch though since I do a lot of work at home at night as well, and the Brydge Pro 12.3 really DOES turn this into a laptop for all intents and purposes, finally a keyboard that's weighted enough that this acts like a laptop in your lap, no kickstand needed.

    It's so great having something with no fan noise. This is dead silent.

    The form factor is great for someone like me who takes it to work and back home every day.

    The tablet functionality is outstanding, whether using fingers or the pen, it gives so many more possibilities than normal laptops. Unlike the HP Spectre X60 15 inch, this is NOT a burden to hold and use as a tablet.

    I've had SSD based systems for years now, the last five laptops I've had were all SSD, all my desktops and my media center are SSD, so I'm used to fast booting systems. Yet this still boots quicker than any other system I have or ever used. I don't sleep anything, always power off, so I still have a very quick boot.

    I've had a few issues with a couple programs I use such as Eseecloud for my home external cameras, and even with the dock 2 designed for these, I get weird issues with the mouse moving between one of the monitors and this screen. But considering all the things I run on here, that's small potatoes.

    The power brick isn't too bad, but I found a USB C to surface port charging cable that I can use with a small USB C wall wart that puts out 90 watts. FAR easier to carry that with me, and the one that shipped with this is permanently under the couch and used when I am home.

    The screen gets very dark if you want, FAR darker than the XPS could, which I appreciate at night.

    Battery life is a bit of a letdown, but still better than my Dell was doing after nearly 3 years of use. I would've loved the battery life of the Surfacebook but I didn't want to pay the premium for the hardware when I could get this on such a great sale and have basically the same experience. I have no need of discrete graphics and it seemed pointless to spend extra money for something I never needed to use.

    I'm glad I finally am done searching for a new laptop. Between the Brydge keyboard I can leave at home on the stand by the couch and the typecover for when I'm anywhere else and don't need this on my lap, I have the best of all worlds.

    Great if it stays charged.

    I bought this to replace the one I bought a year and a half ago. The battery on the last one stopped charging and they had to refund (as credit) and then I could use the refund to buy another one. I got the same one in black, and I am hoping the charging issue doesn't happen this time. I love the computer, but even new it doesn't stay charged as long as my little Chromebook, which I bought while waiting to get the new Surface because they don't have loaners. I really love the size and weight of the Surface and the color contrast. I bought the keyboard for it. I wouldn't want to have to use it without that.

    Bargain Laptop with good GPU

    Let’s start by saying it’s the only computer brand with a 3060 under $1200, but on sale it’s a real bargain. The memory is so-so and for the price I get it (8gb), Storage is not bad for starters, I like the feel of the big keyboard due the the fact that there is no num pad…meh. The screen has a good refresh rate, but the color accuracy is off a decent amount. The mouse pad is ok, but I use a gaming mouse so it doesn’t affect me. The fans can get loud, but they keep the GPU running cool. Overall great laptop for the price.

    Hard to beat at $1099, Unbeatable at $849

    Seriously, get it on sale while you can, I've been nothing but impressed since getting mine.

    In my own benchmarks I would rate the CPU as the same performance level of a desktop Ryzen 5 2600, or a desktop I7-7700K(except with 2 extra cores, and 4 extra threads).

    The GPU in my own testing is very close to the performance level of a Desktop RTX 2060..... don't let the 75W rating fool you, this thing is still a little beast.

    You will of course want to add another 8GB stick of RAM and a bit more storage down the line, but even with that, the price for what you get is still amazing.

    There are a couple tweeks you might want to consider, the first and most important would be a CPU undervolt of around -100 millivolts, this can be done in BIOS when you enable the "expert mode" in BIOS settings by holding (right control+right shift+left alt+F2)..... the undervolt will improve CPU performance and cooling.

    Next thing you might want to consider is creating a custom fan curve in Dragon Center, the stock fan curve isn't horrible, but if you don't mind trading a little silence, you can definitely get some better cooling with your own curve.

    One other thing. If you don't want this thing forcibly updating you to Windows 11(it will try believe me), make sure to disable the TPM module in the BIOS security tab.

    Other than that, game on! this thing is surprisingly capable!

    Great Budget Gaming Laptop

    After months of investigation, I chose this laptop over some of its competitors due to the better GPU and lighter weight.

    The RTX3060 GPU, while throttled somewhat vs desktop versions, is still powerful enough to run most games. Additionally, the laptop has an integrated Intel Graphics chipset, which is used for most everyday tasks like web browsing and video playback. This enables the battery to last longer and generates less heat, allowing the fans to run quieter. The core i5, is competitive verses the i7, while being almost $200 cheaper.

    I highly recommend upgrading the RAM to at least 16 GB. The first thing I did was replace the 8 GB RAM with 32 GB and enable XMP in the BIOS. This let the RAM run at 2933 MHz, instead of the 2133 MHz that it was running out of the box.

    Best cheap beast lol

    PROS:

    1. It has 2 ram dimms (I upgrade to 32gb ram)

    2. It has 2 nvme dimms (I added +1TB nvme)

    3. Its warm with a cooler base and it's hot without it (at full blast playing the witcher III like 3 hours)

    4. It is fast even without upgrades

    5. Noise is not high with a cooler base and it is high without

    CONS:

    1. RTX3060 is the 60watt version, max 75watt (the lowest)

    2. Plastic feel, not cheap but plastic at the end

    3. You have to get into the BIOS to improve rams speed clocks

    4. Have only 2 usb ports + 2 usb-c

    OVERALL:

    Well you will not find a cheaper laptop with this hardware, I buyed this baby for 940usd (tax included, 829usd listed) and let me tell you that for that price, it was a steal, this beauty runs gooood with the RTX3060 and i5.

    I upgraded ram to 32gb and added 1TB stick to improve significally this laptop, after the upgrades I feel laptop speed increased like 30% in games. Consider to do this for GREAT IMPROVE, even another 8gb stick would be great, since it take advantage of the dual channel stuff.

    I always buyed 17.3in laptop, but the price range of laptops with that screen size with very similar hardware goes from $1400-$1600 so it is almost DOUBLE!.... I am considering buying a gaming monitor and a stand base to put the laptop (using it like a CPU?, lol) with the money I saved but not sure since I will feel that it lost all the sense of buying a laptop, but when I think I have an extra $500 bucks in my pocket just for the screen, so it's ok.

    Great performance, but no display output via USB-C

    Fast, requires some tweaking to reach acceptable thermal levels. (I prefer to keep my machines under 80* C under load)

    Buyers - be aware that this laptop has no displayport out via USB-C. The USB-C ports are literally only for data. No charging, or display outputs. The HDMI port is limited to 4k 30hz.

    As long as you're ok with these limitations, this is a great machine! I just wish there was more clarity about the display outputs. (You can literally only connect one external monitor unless you get a displaylink usb to hdmi adapter)

    Very good gaming laptop

    This laptop is very good for AAA games and it will play more demanding games at lower resolutions out of the box with 8gb of ram.I bought and installed 32 GB of ram plus a 1 TB hard drive for additional storage and the benchmarks more than doubled.I play Microsoft Flight Simulator with high settings and I can get approximately 50-60 fps and more depending on the background scenery and the screen is bright and clear.I am happy with my purchase but serious gamers should look to get at least 16 GB and 1 TB storage since the 512 GB SSD fills up quickly.

    Great price to performance

    Good components for the money at the regular price, excellent value when on sale.

    Not the best components, but your are not paying full price for the best on the market. The 3060 can run any game at 1080, but you can't run ultra quality on the newest AAA games. The cpu is good enough. The keyboard and trackpad are good enough. The screen is good enough for most people. The battery is good enough for a gaming laptop, if battery life is important to you don't buy a gaming laptop. To get better you have to pay more for each area, but this is meant to be a budget product.

    The only real upgrade you should do is increase the ram, which is relatively easy to do. While on sale and adding 8gb of ram, for around $1k total you have a decent system that should last you through 2023 when hopefully the shortages and prices get better.

    great laptop

    I absolutely love this laptop. I have had it now for a couple of weeks and I ran into one issue. The first day of my classes it wouldn't turn on. Go figure. My husband opened it and determined it had to do with the battery. He was able to get it turned on, thankfully, and it's been working fine ever since. Other than that hiccup, it's a great laptop. I love how the keyboard lights up and the screen has great resolution. Unfortunately, I had to take a star away for the battery complication, otherwise I love this laptop!

    Good product worth upgrade - tech support not good

    I really like this laptop especially after upgrading the RAM to 2 x 16GB DIMMs and replacing the basic 512GB HD chip with a 1 TB pro all from Amazon for around $200. Not a gamer so I can’t attest to the FPS or what games run best but this is a beast for my office workstation that should be able to handle anything thrown at it for the next 5+ years. I had purchased another more powerful laptop but when they did the discount week on this model I jumped because the other laptop was just a Ferrari sitting in rush hour traffic. I also saved $800 between the 2. My only con so far has been the response of MSI support. My 9 key came off of the number pad and they gave me a USA number to call for parts. No response yet. Then my original HD burnt up and I already had the 1 TB to replace and just did a fresh install of Win 10 and tech support said I had to ship the whole laptop back and would not just replace the chip. I will still give the system a solid buy.

    Great laptop!!

    This laptop is amazing and was in my budget range (under $1000). It can successfully run beefy games, such as: FF14, phasmophobia, valheim and more. The fans only get loud when I play phasmophobia but immediately become quiet again when I close phasmophobia. The storage could be better and so could the battery life when unplugged but everything else is great. Also this was the only cheap white laptop I found. I hate the red and black look so this was perfect.

    I upgraded the m.2 the factory one is was a little slow and only had 512 gigs to a 980 pro 2 TB and 32GB Crucial dual rank kit.

    Great little powerhouse (with a tweak or two!)

    Great laptop, especially at the sale price! If you are buying this for gaming, you 100% will need to upgrade your RAM (and SSD, depending on what you play). This baby has great specs but will absolutely have lag issues with heavy-hitting games. I purchased 32GB / 2666 MHz memory (2 16s) and vastly improves performance, and the "upgrade" cost less than the laptop at retail - although be careful, as this will void your warranty. All in all, really happy with this purchase. This baby can (almost) keep up with my desktop, which says a lot!

    Kids Fire Tab Alternative

    (Cyan tablet case not included)

    Looking for an alternative to the bloatware infested Fire Tablets that Amazon offers did not take long when I found this Samsung Tab. I didn't need the latest version because it was only being used for downloaded content and a drawing app.

    Extremely easy setup, impressive durability under a toddler's stomping and enough volume to please my son without blowing out his ears, I've been very happy with the tablet. Beware, even with fast charging supplies, it still takes about 6-9 hours for a full charge from 0%. It lasts about 2 days with video streaming and sound being used.

    It does take a long time to startup and reset but thats what 3 GB of RAM and no SSD does. My son can learn to be patient so I don't mind as much.

    Great product

    The tablet overall is great. It has great battery life, great performance, and it has a nice display. The screen is just a little weak.

    Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 13"

    Bought an Open Box, saved a couple of hundred dollars in doing so and the computer is awesome! I'm already in the Samsung Ecosystem and love it! I bought the computer for home use and to edit photos using Adobe Lightroom, this computer handles everything I throw at it and then some, aslo does it quickly. I highly recommended the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360! I will add though that the battery life will be cut in half if using applications like Lightroom, Photoshop and Premier.

    The metamorphosis of Samsung: Trash2Treasure

    As a kid of the 80s and 90s Samsung was a brand we made fun of. Awful. So buying a laptop was a big about-face. I had help from buying a Galaxy Note a few months ago and being crazy impressed with everything about it. So I thought the laptop might impress too. That's an understatement. I returned a loaded Lenovo Yoga 6 AMD Ryzen 5 in Denim, (the 16GB Ram model) for this and wow. Build quality is on a different level. As good as my Spectre 13 Oled if not better. The display puts the Yoga to shame as well as the keyboard. Worth every penny, this Samsung, especially at 500 off.

    samsung 2 in 1 laptop.

    its fast, the keys feel great, the lack of a regular usb to hook up a real 10key and a mouse is a big problem for me, it was 1500 out the door october 2021, november and its at the geek store because the biometrics wont work and it doesnt take the password to open it up. The touch screen is great, so different and inovative.

    Nailed it!

    I too purchased this open box and am extremely, extremely happy.

    Totally would have bought this new but it worked out that there was an open box. What I like about this laptop is that it is rare. You can open it with one hand and the fingerprint reader jump to OS time is instantaneous now with Win 11. This is super thin, a superb laptop at this price point compared to the HP Spectre which I also considered but is $2800 however with a 4k screen. This screen is 1920x1080 and for a 13.5" display it is perfect at this res. It could use a magnetic charging connection and the S-Pen would be better suited to fit in the unit itself bit this is such a crispy clean display and form open and closed that I can overlook that.

    You will not get 21hrs battery life as those tests were with the Wi-Fi off, backlit keyboard off, no network connection straight video playback and screen at max nothing lese running. You will get 8 though which is way better than my Dell Inspirion I just bought and upgraded 1.5 years ago. Huge difference with this Samsung 13" is that I can put it on my lap and not roast my kibbles. I could not do that with any...any other laptop but I think we will see more of this with these newer processors being more efficient and kicking out less heat.

    The fan is super quiet. It did get really hot though updating to Win 11 and getting all the updates but the install time was so fast with the SSD. The SSD btw is top of the low tier so its good but not perfect. I think the screen brightness is great too.

    I added a 512GB micro SD to the side and I now have 1TB storage. Awesome. 65w charging means its going to charge in about 1hr from about 2% battery. Super happy, no longer using the Dell and for a company that doesn't really do laptops, they nailed this one.

    Love this laptop

    I have used dozens of laptops, the Galaxy Pro Book 360 is right up there with the best. Great processing, fantastic graphics. (would have loved 4k, but at this price point I can live with this). It is so light, I really don't even feel it on my lap, even after hours of work.

    Battery life could be better, but other than that no complaints at all. S Pen use is seemless, similar to Galaxy Tab S7+, as close to pencil to paper as I can imagine without it being the real thing.

    I could not be happier with the purchase.

    Love this little laptop!

    This laptop is super light-weight and powerful. I use it for work and home. The screen is quite vivid and the keyboard is comfortable. The only thing I wish it had is a USB port in addition to the USB-C, as I still use flashdrives. It was very easy to set up and I'm not super techy. And the blue color is pretty!

    Great Laptop!

    I decided to try the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 13 after using Lenovo Yoga models the last 10 years. It is pretty sweet. Super light weight and feels good. Nothing to complain about.
