Welcome to CSR Nation
Has anyone used generic or off brand power adapters for your laptop? I have always kept and extra adapter for my laptops in case the old one goes bad. I have not gotten one yet for my newest Samsung laptop and wondered if anyone has experience with this.
I have had a universal charger I bought at Best Buy that has worked on a couple of computers just fine. I have also bought chargers online that were "supposed" to be for my computer, and they were utter crap.
How is that computer working for you, Kerry?
by the way I got a Samsung, too, similar to the model recommended in the prior posts. I bought it on ebay for 450 bucks/ Windows 7. I don't need the Andrea sound card anymore. It's pretty good with my Martel but I just got a new mic that somebody was raving about, so I will let you know if it works even better.
I'm always interested in new mics.
I love the Samsung!
I love mine too. Glad you are happy with it.
I have tried generic brands that heated up. Now I just order OEM (original equipment manufacturer) power adapters from eBay. I just make sure I order from someone who has a good rating, and they have all been good so far. One caveat, though. The other day I was ordering one for my husband and had put in OEM with his laptop model. I didn't read the language closely enough, and the seller had written "OEM compatible," which basically means generic, so I feel that was somewhat duplicitous to include OEM in his description language. I'm returning it
