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.

So close to the perfect laptop/tablet hybrid........but design error lets it down.

Being a patient type of person I love this machine! But those easily frustrated may end up throwing it out of the window. Three manufacturing designflaws make it hard to use; 1.

The keyboard dock does not lock in place properly after some use, this causes it to keep disconnecting from the screen/tablet making the keyboard and touchpad stop working, (especially if the unit is moving like in a car/train/plane etc.) 2. The screen/tab is much heavier than the keyboard dock so tends to tip backwards on any uneven surface. 3. The touchpad is extremely sensitive and can work on the slightest hint of contact. Software problems can be fixed with updates but some are too strange to be believed; 1. Shut the unit via the hinge and it goes into sleep mode, open it up again and the touchpad will not scroll, you have to use the touchscreen. 2. WIFI will randomly not find networks it had the day before, reboot required. 3. The amount of software that comes with it will almost fill the hard drive (64GB) leaving little space for media.Thankfully there is a MicroSD card (64GB) for that BUT the SD card doesn't work with the Libraries so any movies/music has to be temporarily transferred to the Libraries on C drive to work with the preinstalled players on win8 system.......weird! 4. On screen keyboard obliterates half the screen and doesn't even have the courtesy to adjust the position of the search bar/input box you have selected to put text in. You must move the keyboard around the screen to avoid the cursor position. In general I love the versatility of this machine and have used it on flights as a tablet for movies + games etc. and while travelling for work with emails and net. So many plus points; screen clarity, battery life, lightweight, adequate processing speed, windows desktop and Win 8 systems, full keyboard, stereo front facing speakers, good cameras front and back, 3 USB ports + mini HDMI, SIM card slot, Micro SD etc. etc. Would like to recommend this to every one but cannot due to the above flaws.

Nice little Tablet/Laptop

Light and responsive, just what I was looking for in a windows 8 touchscreen. Works as a tablet and a laptop (with the keyboard dock) when you need it.

Lightweight and fast!

The best of two worlds. A tablet with excellent performance, lightweight, bright display, storage and even USB ports. Connect to the small dock and added keyboard, more ports and still light.

Had a problem doing a BIOS upgrade the first time, but Samsung took care of it.

Tablet with added keyboard helps Windows 8 newbies

The ATIV Smart PC 500T is a good tablet with excellent battery life. Unlike iOS and Android tablets, it gives you Windows 8 (free update to Windows 8.

1 via Windows Update) and excellent expandability, including a USB 2.0 port and a micro-SD card slot. Add the optional keyboard for more USB 2.0 ports and a touchpad. When running Windows 8, the keyboard didn't always stay connected via Plug and Play, and it was necessary to remove and reconnect it. If you shoot large RAW files with a digital SLR or compact system camera, you will want to get a third-party RAW image viewer as the on-board ATOM processor renders RAW images very slowly when used with the standard Microsoft Digital Camera Codec pack. The front and rear-facing cameras work very well with Windows 8.1's new Camera app.
