This was the first Samsung computer that I have had it was bought for me from my husband as a gift. Over a year later now I am still enjoying this laptop in the same shape as I purchased it. I had past problems with the last two brands I bought having many hardware failures and after having this problem free brand I plan to stick to it. As they say if its not broke then do not fix it. Thanks Samsung for an awesome problem free laptop.

This is my second Samsung laptop. Haven't had any problems any problems since ownership for over a year. Hard drive went bad in first one, but Samsung replaced no problem. The hard drive was not manufactured by Samsung. So not Samsung's fault

I chose Samsung laptop because of its reliability, aftermarket support, brand quality, and they made some of their own components. I was so close to getting Q430-11 but I wanted a bigger display (15" and up) and Blu-ray drive. Then I found R540-11.
Features
- Blu ray drive and software are awesome.
- The laptop is pretty light for a 15.6" display.
- Great graphics (ATI Radeon) as tested on "Mass Effect 2" PC game and blu-ray movies.
- not pre-installed with bunch of useless softwares.
- Intuitive data sharing software.
Performance
- FAST!! (as expected from Core i5 450M, 4GB RAM). I like how I can adjust the mode to 'silent' to reduce noise or to 'Speed' for maximum performance.
- Bright and sharp HD LED display.
- Speaker could be a little louder but decent sound for laptop.
- Minimal noise from the vent and heat is well-controlled.
Battery Life
- Battery is average for normal use (surfing internet, play music, perform simultaneous tasks) as it ranges between 2.5 and 3.5 hours. When watching blu-ray movies or playing PC games under "Samsung Optimized" power option, the battery life ranges between 1.5 to 2 hours.
Design
- Touchpad is comfortable and feels just right.
- Prefer this keyboard over island keyboard.
- Great build but would prefer Q430-11 aluminum casing.
- Status indicators are hard to see due to espresso brown finish. The indicator light is fine.
Overall, I am happy with R540-11 and I believe it is a great deal for what you get in term of features and performance.

Pros: Built-in speakers, Realistic color, blue ray player, fast start up
I would have preferred to have the i7 processor in my laptop. However, Samsung always does a wonderful job when it comes to computers, cell phones and home electronics in general. I do not say that as a manufacture's representative for the company I say that also as a consumer myself. The only problem I encountered with my laptop -which I still love- is the operating system was not properly installed. Luckily, I was able to fix the problem for the most part, but for a person not technically inclined, this may have been an issue.
