Samsung is known for its range of well-priced and well-made laptops, and the R620 is an affordable 16-inch media centre that sits towards the top of the company's range.
Aimed at the budget end of the multimedia market, the R620 is one of the cheapest machines available with an integrated Blu-ray drive. The screen isn't sharp enough to take full advantage of Full HD movies, but an HDMI-out port does let you hook up a high-definition TV.
The 16-inch screen features the same 16:9 aspect ratio as most of the other laptops we've seen, natively supporting the latest films but also loosing out on vertical pixels. The 1366 x 768 pixel resolution is nothing special on a screen of this size, but images are reasonably detailed none the less. Brightness levels are good, but blacks and darker colours could be deeper.
