Samsung RV-511 Review

Posted by Stefan on February 8th, 2011 in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Samsung RV-511 is a 15.6 inch laptop powered by Intel core  i3-380M processor, clocked at 2.53 GHz. The notebook is available at bestbuy for a price close to $600.  The Samsung RV-511 comes with 4 GB of RAM and 500 GB Hard Disk.

The Samsung RV-511  comes with LED backlighting that gives you bright display. Its resolution stands at 1366 x 768.  The graphics is driven by the Intel HD graphics. The performance of the graphics is decent but not good enough to play modern games at high resolutions.

Samsung RV-511 comes with DVD and CD writer with dual layer support. The notebook comes with ability to read and  different media cards including  Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, SDXC and MMC.

Samsung RV-511 comes with the support for the Intel WiDi which can be used to stream the downloaded movies on an High Definition TV.  Of course, you will need the Netgear Push2TV module ( sold separately) to be able to do it. The Netgear Push2TV grabs the content wirelessly from your WiDi enabled notebook and displays the content using the HDMI cable that connect the Push2TV to HDTV.

Samsung RV-511 comes with other features that you expect in any common notebook . It has support for wired and wireless networking. The Wired LAN has gigabit capacity, so , if you are on a home or office intranet you can transfer data between computers at a very fast Gigabit rate ( assuming the hub or the router and the other computer  also supports Gigabit speed).

The  built-in 4G WiMAX  in Samsung RV-511 can be used for mobile broadband  4G network connection. Of course, it will require a data connection plan separately.  Verizon is on the forefront of providing the 4G connection plans.

As far as the ports and external connections are concerned, Samsung RV-511 comes with  3 USB 2.0 ports, 1 PC VGA port and most importantly  HDMI port.
