The NF310-A01 is Samsung’s 10-inch netbook that has delighted customers and laptop analysts. It stands out among its counterparts in terms of screen resolution, battery life and inexpensiveness. Users have given thumbs up to this model because of its lightweight, realistic color and value for money.
The Samsung NF310-A01 is a 10-inch netbook with a dark silver lid which has been nick named as “Titan Silver”. It stands tall with its interesting design and functionality. Its glossy lid is pleasing and comforting to the user but acts as a magnet for the fingertips. The lids are matte finished and require less wiping with the clothes. Analyzing the back part of the netbook one will find the 6-cell battery protruded somewhat downward, with a rubber support. The plastic does not work in its favor but this shortcoming is eclipsed by the design of the frame that has a touch of waviness.
Features that make it stand out
The features surpass customer’s expectations in several ways. The keyboard is as large as normal keyboard and has a wider keypad, coupled with mouse buttons that are one of the softest in the business. It has a resolution of 1366×768 pixels and an Intel Atom N550 Dual-Core processor that provides up to 50 percent faster performance than in its previous counterparts.
To the right there is RJ-45 Ethernet port, card reader and two USB ports; while to the left one will find the connector for the charger, D-sub, the vent, USB port and audio and microphone jacks. The NF310 has a 250GB hard drive at 5400-rpm. The 1 GB of DDR3 memory can be upgraded to 2 GB DDR3 quite easily.
The LAN interfaces consist of a 100 Mbps Wi-Fi standard and Bluetooth 3.0 is available for effective and better communication with the network and other devices. The battery life of NF301-A01 is about 7 hours.
Battery life is one of the most important parameters that differentiate netbooks. The 48WH battery with a life of 7 hours is thus a significant plus point in this regard. The display is pleasing, sharp and accurate. The LED backlight helps the user to read small text quite easily. The keyboard keys on the right hand side are significantly small and difficult during continuous use.
The NFA310-A01 netbook has a built-in feature that allows it to be on in just 3 seconds after being in sleeping mode, for example. Restart is very fast, same with the start up and the shut down which makes it easy and convenient for sudden and quick use.
Coming to the sound, the audio is technologically advanced. The speakers offer a rich bass tone and the quality of dialogue in both movie watching and video chatting is quite enriching.
The only disadvantage (as for ALL netbooks) is that the NF310 does not have a fast Network card/WI-FI through Ethernet. But for computing on the move or when travelling the internet along with MS Office productivity is good, the justice seems to be done. Watching movies is quite a pleasurable experience, too.
The Samsung NFA310-A01 is a value for money with improved features. It is the most effective among its counterparts in the market though it has some shortcomings, which are pardonable when one gets such varied features at the nominal price.
