The Samsung Series 5 550P Laptops Thread

Hi guys,

Welcome me into your club.
I bought Samsung Np550p5c-s05IN one with i7processor from flipkart .
Started of with FIFA13. My worry is laptop GPU temps are reaching 75-80c(recorded using msi afterburn) with in 20 mins but it stays there. Is this normal with samsung laptops, or is there any thing wrong with the product which i received. Because as flipkart offers 30 day replacement i will ask for replacement.

In normal conditions is it super cool and pretty fast.

Any suggestions friends...

I think 05IN has older CPU - 3630. It's max tdp is 45W and so will generate heat naturally.

3632QM has 35W.

Guys Bought myself a Sammy NP300E5V-S02IN from Flipkart few days ago.
Overall I am very happy with the laptop.A truly VFM product :)
Just have one doubt about the serial number.The thing is I was registering the laptop on Samsung website and filling all the info and while filling it, it asked me to punch in the serial number and then I typed what is written on my laptop box and invoice but it gave me some error that the serial number has a problem so I checked beneath the laptop and to my surprise I found that there is an extra "P" at the end while the rest of the serial No. remains the same that is found on the box and invoice, So can anyone tell me or check for me, is it the same with your Samsung laptop too, please try to check both the box and laptop and see if they match.Thanks!!

guys , one quick question, im planning to purchase this 550 series lappy, since its the only one that has powerful gpu at a reasonable price. I really want to know if the multi touch gestures(windows 8) are supported by the trackpad that comes with the laptop. i saw some touch gestures based on track pad and its cool, better than a touch screen.

Thanks for the reply mate, does it uses synaptics drivers for touch pad? Is the accuracy issue there due to the hardware itself or jut due to drivers? I'm planning to buy sp550 - 06in, hopefully it comes with a fixed multi touch gestures

@sujoyp Thnx for replying..Do you have your invoice with you right now, you can confirm from that too
or if you can tell me what is your serial number on your laptop like?? I mean how many letters and with which letter/number it ends.

@bala yes its synaptics...and I think its hardware issue...actually not an issue but i feel touchpad is bit slow..soo gesture accuracy is less

@rouble ...bill is not with me...Sr no is 15 letter starting with JAL and ending with a P

yup mine is also S05 model the i7+8gb ram model

does it have below par touch pad or what, it has all the gestures supported by win 8 right?, what version of win 8 does it has pre installed?, are we getting a product of of win8 or just a preinstalleed copy? and what about the screen brightness and viewing angles mate? any over heating issues? and what about the boot up time? sorry for throwing too much question at once lol

soo many questions :ashamed:

1. Yes the touchpad has all the gestures in windows 8
2. Its only written ' Windows 8 single language' ...I think its home edition
3. we get a backup partition of windows 8 . no disc ...its a factory image. easy to reinstall till u dont format the recovery partition.
4. screen brightness is good enough...its a matt screen soo wont reflect any sunlight....viewing angle is good ....a person siting at 60 degree right will only see poor and dim left but remaining screen will be perfectly visible
5. hmm boot up time is fast...but not very fast...i havent checked coz I keep my lappy on sleep...it wakes up in 2-3 secs :)

I have bought a Samsung NP300E5V-S02IN a few weeks back..

Thats great then..During FIFA 12 my temps were around 70..So I think GTA is a damn heavy game..
mine idles around 50..
One thing more, are you using a cooling pad??
I may buy one or should I contact Samsung people and ask them to do something or do you think the temps are normal??
 

sujoyp

Grand Master
if u game a lot just get a cooling pad ...I got a cheap one free with laptop but not using it...temperatures are normal but may damage laptop in long run
