    I have a $1000 Lenovo before this and this was only $400. I needed a laptop for college and this is perfect. It's beautiful. I love it way more than the Lenovo I had.My husband has a MacBook and even likes this better. I was so excited for this to come in!
    The unit arrived quickly but 48 hours after I set everything up it froze. Simple forced reboots don't work, had to factory set. After having to do this 3 times I called and Samsung agreed its an issue.bi sent it back, they received it. It's been a month since they received it. Over and over they promised to send a replacement. After weeks of this, and getting the tin around, they finally said they would refund my money if I could provide a receipt. I did. And a week later still no word it's been issued. Nightmare experience.
    I purchased this item spur of the moment during a lightning deal when then price was dropped to $329. Normally I don't make impulse purchases at that price range, but within ten minutes, the deal was 98% sold out, so I just took a chance and went for it. and boy am I glad that I did. I'm upgrading from a Lenovo C330, which I also like very much (especially for the sub $250 price I got that one at) but you're getting a lot more bang for your buck with this Samsung machine.** Just as a heads up, this is an updated model of the Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 than was what was launched a year ago or so. (There's a video on Youtube that explains the differences -- which is not much. This is a lighter silver color and not the sleek, darker grey.) **I'll break my review down by features:- display: For the price, this display is incredibly sharp. Like, surprisingly nice. My other computer is a 2017 Macbook Pro and I can honestly say that this one is almost on par with the retina display on the MBP. For me personally, display is always the most important single item on a working laptop as low pixel count, resolution and bad colors can lead to severe eye strain and fatigue. This machine doesn't come with Chrome's Night Light feature out of the box, but you can activate it (search on Google). In the past, Chromebooks were known for being very cheaply built computers with low quality components, but I'm very impressed and equally happy with this computer's display, especially for $329.- keyboard: This is where Lenovo and others have Samsung beat. The keyboard is fine, but the keys themselves feel quite small and there's too much space between keys. I feel like I have a much quicker and accurate typing experience on virtually every other keyboard. In terms of layout... It's just your standard Chromebook fare. I will say this is probably my only real disappointment with the machine. The trackpad is also fine. It's nothing spectacular, but doesn't feel particularly cheap. All gestures and two finger scrolling works no problem and there's a nice solid (and quiet) click when pressing the trackpad.- battery life: The battery life is pretty bonkers on this machine. After a couple of console prompts, the battery capacity is shown to be 39 watt hours. This is a huge bump from the Lenovo C330, which already has incredible battery life. My guess is the larger, higher res display necessitates the additional battery capacity. I've not been through two full cycles yet and have been using the machine all day for work during the day and then Youtube/Netflix in the evening. I think it's safe to say that you easily get a full day's worth from a single charge even with lots of video and graphics-heavy use.- speakers: They're not that great. Most computers at this price point have downwards-facing speakers, and this one is no exception. The speakers don't ever get that shrill or rattle, but in terms of overall volume, they're not very loud. I ended up using headphones for a couple of video seminars I had to do today because the speakers were just not loud enough.- cameras: I haven't tried them yet. I don't really use webcams on computers and don't see myself using the cameras on this one much.- build quality: This is a tough one to measure for a few different reasons. It appears that the slate gray Plus V2 has an aluminum/alloy case, but this one is all plastic. It feels sturdy enough, but definitely has that plasticky feel. The keyboard in particular is where it feels especially cheap. But even with a full plastic build, there's really no keyboard or display flex, and the computer feels solid in my lap or on a table. The screen hinges are also pretty sturdy and stay put when you're banging away on the keyboard.I've got to say, even at $400, I still think this is a solid buy. If you're able to grab this during a flash sale for $350 or less, then definitely go for it!EDIT: After only using the machine for a couple of days, the GPU/CPU/internal graphics went completely haywire out of nowhere and the computer became completely unusable. Trying various resets didn't work and opening the display to tablet mode and back didn't help either. The replacement machine is also flickering, giving me the impression that these newer silver models have a major issue with the stability and reliability of the graphics and display. There are a few others who've posted similar issues in their review of this computer here. Still debating on whether to keep it or not because I really want to like this computer but am worried about what happens after the return window and warranty period expire.
