Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good While It Lasted I bought this chromebook to take digital notes when I entered college. I fell in love with the device and enhanced my learning. That was untill about 6 months later the hinge broke from regular use and it also messed with the screen. It was fun while it lasted Samsung.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had one for a year, glitches started Bought one of these a year ago for my Son's school work. After a while just sitting there with nobody touching it, it would start flipping between open tabs randomly. Turns out the touch screen control goes faulty on these. I opened it up and disconnected the touch screen cable, so at least it's usable, but no touch screen anymore. Piece of junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Samsung Chromebook Plus 2 in 1 12.2 Bought it November 2018. Lasted 8 months. Hinges broke right through the screen. Who's bright idea was to place the hinges right behind the screen. The hinges are supported to the plastic cover of the screen assembly with 3 tiny metal screws. Reallly? Metal screws and a plastic cover and the hinges behind the screen?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BATTERY NO LONGER WORKS! I have only had this computer for probably a little mroe than 6 months, and I noticed when I went to touch the touchscreen that the computer turned off. After further investigation, I noticed that when plugged in, the battery icon was missing from the dock, meaning that the battery had failed. Not a great experience and will be buying a new computer soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use Have one major problem, the screen has locked up at least twice a day since my purchase and you have to reboot ..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from V1 had a better usbc layout for charging Compared to V1, V2 has a horrid USBC layout. Before I could plug my computer in on either side of the device because the usbc ports were on both sides. They changed that with the addition of an unnecessary USB3.0 drive spot that is just wasted space. Adapters exist for a reason. I absolutely hate this about the new model and because of it, that for me is a complete deal breaker. Horrid design flaw with this change. Hope to see them put this back on both sides. It needs to be on both ends for best charging. It preserves the charger too instead of it getting caught up on the laptop and pulling it off counters, etc. I like the new intel processor, however. But unfortunately that usb drive is enough to make me hate this device. Still no backlit keyboard and keys don't recess when in tablet mode leading to drops and an overall awful feel with the keyboard always exposed underneath the device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great All Around but a few Quirks I bought this about a month ago and am generally happy about it with a few exceptions, those being the strange camera setup, I'd rather have the 13mp camera on the front rather than the keyboard deck because it gets used more, second the camera doesn't deal with low light well unless you install crouton which then allows for the camera to be adjusted automatically, another issue is the placement of USB-C ports why God why did they put both on the same side it's not that bad since they provide a USB-A on the other side but it's still annoying. The pen is actually pretty great and I find myself using it to take screenshots often. Finally I REALLY wish I would've opted for the extra $100 for the core m3 model. The Celeron in this Chromebook doesn't cut it especially if you plan on running Linux Apps, Crouton, Android Apps, etc. I always find spotify's audio being choppy. I would've liked a bit more storage but that's just because I'm using this laptop to code and have to install Linux Apps (Crostini), Crouton, or a combination of both. Otherwise this Chromebook would be wonderful for general browsing, but if you're planning on Crostini and Android apps opt for the extra $100 core me model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gentle Pleasure As a music fanatic, I can't be happier with this Chromebook. The default sound is GREAT and voluminous. This must be said and heard. But there is more which I find so appealing about that aspect. One can boost the volume not only through the the chrome extensions, every Chromebook lover will have found these I'm sure, BUT you can also boost with standalone apps though the Play store for downloaded movies or music files. There is no occasion where you can't have it to full enjoyment. Even boosted, the whole sound spectrum remains good. No distortion. For classical music, this device is a marvel, it's simply a pleasure and the way it should be. The bottom firing speakers work very well for the stereo. It's impressive. Congratulations to Samsung. I bought it for the this reason and although I'd wished for a very bright display too, it is still satisfying at 300+ nits. The FHD on a small device like this is really OK. Very responsive as a touchscreen, the right size 16-10 too, like my Mac. The keyboard is indeed very good, as Chr.Unb. mentions. Aesthetically, it's a very beautiful device that is gentle on the hands with its rounded edges, the rather heavy display doesn't bother me at all. I'd never have felt if I hadn't read it. Last but not least, the pen works like a charm. The longer I use it the more I see its value. 200GB sd-card works perfectly. All in all, the CB+V2 is great. For power users, this device is problably not the right thing, yet I do certainly NOT agree with all the negative comments here. Samsung should have constructed this device in metal completely though. If Samsung wanted to make just a good media device, then this one certainly is, And it's more. Hope it stays like that while I can imagine the Pixelbook 2 some day, ha, only if it can boast a sound like the v2 'there will always be something better' right??
