Hello all, I am new here so apologies if this is not allowed!
I have just created this website : http://www.yournetbookreviews.com which I hope will become a collection of user reviews for all netbooks including the Samsung NC10. At the moment there are but a small handful of reviews, and none for the NC10 which is why I have come here to kindly ask those of you who have experience with an NC10 to write a review of it on the above website. Your reviews will help people with their purchasing choices so if you can spare a few minutes, it would be greatly appreciated if you could share what you love (or hate?!) about your Samsung, or other netbook.
Thank you allDecember 23, 2008 at 11:40 am #177076
Thanks for the review 🙂December 23, 2008 at 12:06 pm #177070jezMember
No probs! Good luck with the site!
Did you code it up yourself or is there some kind of “review” template out there. Anyway, it looks good.
PS. generally blatant affiliate sites and anything that gets spammed around a little too often will be removed! I have no probs with people trying to get genuine sites off the ground :). Of course I reserve the right to remove anything I decide is commercial or treads on this site’s toes as per the forum rules!December 23, 2008 at 4:06 pm #177077
Thanks, its based on wordpress with a review site plug-in.
I don’t mean for the site to become a haven of advertisement, and aim to keep it very non-biased (from my point of view). Hopefully, it will become popular and you can let newbies know about the site to save you from repeating the same answers to ‘should i get this netbook…’!December 23, 2008 at 4:37 pm #177074soutthpawMember
You should add the Lenovo S10 to the site for reviewsDecember 23, 2008 at 5:45 pm #177078
Thanks for the feedback soutthpaw. I was contemplating this, and think I will infact add it now, as I have seen it mentioned in many places!December 23, 2008 at 6:17 pm #177072BritmanMember
I’ve added a review under DrizzDecember 24, 2008 at 9:30 am #177073snowmanMember
I was just reading through some of the reviews on the site (I posted one for the NC10 too) and noticed that it suffers, as most amateur review sites do, from over enthusiastic star ratings.
Having teetered between a MSI Wind and the NC10, I was interested in the Wind reviews and the second gives the Wind ALL 5 stars, but then goes on to say the standard battery life is 1.5 hours and that you can only get 4.5 even if you buy the bulky (and quite expensive) 6 cell battery – How can that be 5 stars for value (example)?
Nice to see, overall, that NC10 owners are less blind to their netbooks (admittedly few) faults, but I’m sure a lot of misguided people will look at the front page of the netbookreview site and say “The Wind’s the best, it gets 4.5 stars”.
Might be better to remove the star rating (if possible) from the front page and add the number of positive and negative reviews.
Otherwise, great idea 🙂

Thanks for the review and site feedback snowman. One thing I may do is have an average rating as a number or %, so it would be 4.2 compared to 4.7, for example. When someone comes along who hates any of the netbooks, they will lower the average and hopefully make some valid points, thus giving a better spread of opinions
Thanks again, and merry christmas!December 24, 2008 at 1:40 pm #177071jezMember
The other thing that came to my mind was how opinion might change over time. So although the NC10 comes out well now, of course in 6 months time it won’t look so good. A price drop might help but by then I imagine Samsung will be on to the next model.
Yet your site will still rate it highly I guess? I’m not sure what the solution is other than to hope people rate out of date products down, but more likely they will be more interested in new ones by then? Perhaps older models can be “archived” off?
Merry Christmas to you too 🙂December 24, 2008 at 3:28 pm #177075soutthpawMember
I posted a review too… Yeah the Lenovo was my first consideration but not having a 6 cell battery option killed it… I could have added a bluetooth dongle no problem… Having an express card slot was a plus for that one…December 24, 2008 at 6:11 pm #177080
Yes, I will have to archive off models which are old and outdated, but that will be further down the line. The EEE 701, the first netbook, is up, and getting reviews, and I can’t see it stop selling anytime soon!
Thanks again for the feedback!January 1, 2009 at 4:06 pm #177081
Thank you to all who have written a review. The NC10 is currently the second highest rated netbook on the site!
