Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Samsung always delivers on a quality product

I was recently in the market for a new system, and my goals were to find a notebook that delivered on quality, and features. The Samsung Series 3 notonly meets my expectations, but EXCEEDS them! And for those who are Linux users such as myself, it runs the latest distro of Ubuntu and Red Hat flawlessly.

Samsung is a brand that I admire, from their appliances, audio/video, to office products, whatever they make it's a quality product! Keep it up Samsung!

Great Laptop

I love this new toy. First of all, the screen is anti-glare, very bright and hi-def. The screen is perfect. My previous laptop was Toshiba with glossy screen, you could use it instead of a mirror when shaving in the morning.

I'll never go back to a glossy screen. Samsung seems to be one of the very few who make non-glossy screens - it's definitely worth an extra $100 or so. The CPU is very fast and very cool so that the fan is very quiet and the insides of the laptop are cool as well. The battery lasts a very long time too, depending on settings, I managed to squeeze 6-8 hours out of it. The only things I do not like in the design is that there are no dedicated buttons for sound volume control. It is very annoying to push Fn+F7 to lower the volume. The ideal would be to have a wheel with a physical control for volume. Software-based controls can be annoying too in that they do not allow the volume to be loud enough, especially for some video files or music. I have to note that all manufacturers seem to make the controls soft-based now. Also would be nice to have a light which turns on when video camera works. Otherwise never know if you may be watched. Overall I give it 5 stars.
