Samsung Q430 review

 

Unfortunately, a dull display, pointless and annoying software extras, and a few cut corners hold the Samsung Q430 back from excellence. But even so, its strong underlying performance makes the laptop worth considering for general-use, midrange buyers.

Even with a mediocre display, a thin roster of ports, and barely sufficient audio, the Samsung Q430 has enough positives to win over midrange buyers. In particular, the laptop's strong processor and good battery performance help you overlook its...

Decent Windows and 3D performance, over five hours battery life and an excellent screen make the Q430 a great lightweight all-round laptop.

Samsung Q430

 

One of the best affordable laptops on the market, the Samsung Q430 offers a fantastic all-round experience. It's powerful, packed with features and looks great. If you're in the market for a new machine, it's well worth a look.

Samsung Q430 Laptop

 

The Samsung Q430 laptop boasts some impressive specs whether you're planning to use it for business or pleasure and provides some decent value – our model retails for around a quite reasonable £670.

If you are looking for a laptop you can class as an all-rounder, then the Samsung Q430 could be worth a look. Nothing really stands out as exceptional, but this isn’t a bad thing; laptops that particularly shine in a particular area are often weak in...

Samsung Q430 review: Battery and build

More resilient design than older models, solid build

Samsung Q430

 

The Samsung Q430 has the specs required to zip through work and play. Unfortunately, a dull display, pointless and annoying software extras, and a few cut corners hold the Q430 back from excellence. But even so, its strong underlying performance makes...

Nimble processor and graphics chip ; Long battery life for its class

Minimal range of ports and connections ; Mediocre display color and contrast

The Samsung Q430 skimps on the display and ports, but strong performance and battery life do much to offset that problem.

Samsung Q430-11 review: Samsung Q430-11

 

Samsung Q430-11

Solid, higher-end design in a compact package; Intel Core i5 processor and Nvidia graphics for an affordable price.

Ports are sparse; no Bluetooth.

An impressively designed surprise, the Samsung Q430-11 is a feature-packed, fast laptop that looks more expensive than it is.

Samsung Q430 Laptop Review

 

Laptop with only high performance to price ratio can't satisfy users greatly. They have thought a lot of laptops' appearance and workmanship. Samsung Q430 laptop caters to their needs, decent performance and excellent appearance.

The maximum temperature on the back is also found in the heat vents area, reaching 38 °, while the remaining part performances well, being controlled under 36 °.
