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.

Software issue

The laptop is fine. Could use a stiffer cover. I do not like how Samsung sucks up my band width with their software updates. Send me a disk in the mail instead thanks.

I am really enjoying my laptop, customer service is great and definately would recommend it.

So far I love my new laptop unfortunately I had a problem with it after 2 months use. However Samsung tried very hard, long and patiently to fix it because I believed the problem was due to a bios update they recommended ( but apparently it turned out to be a virus, unknown to me as I thought I was protected).

They then had me send it to Vancouver for format etc and no charge. The only issue I had was that I wish the 1TB HD had been partitioned so Tech support could have made a back up and done a repair/format at my home via phone help instead of having to send it away. I purposely and carefully shopped for this laptop because I wanted the 17 inch screen and the very highest quality screen ( hi resolution non glare) and I got it in this model....also sound quality is good too.....it is wonderful. It was very important for me to get a matte, non glare screen and this is not easy to do as Samsung is one of only a few to realize how important a high quality non glare screen is to the health and comfort of your eyes....other companies should wake up! The laptop itself works just fine and I have absolutely no complaints so far...a good product and the customer service and tech help was great.... I would recommend Samsung.
