I have the Chilean version with optical drive that works very well.
In contrast, the Nvidia Optimus technology is not supported for this model (AFAK on 1/10/2013) for Fedora 19 distro. So, the battery life is very short (about 120 minutes). The sound quality is very good. I love this lap but it's was hard for a newbie like me to setup with dual boot (W8 / Linux).
I have samsung np550p5c uk version.
i have installed ubuntu 13.04 along side with win 8( which came with laptop).
successfully able to boot into ubuntu and able look into the win 8 partions but unable to boot into win 8.
tried many of methods suggested in the forums none of them worked.
chkdsk on recovery command prompt gives me “drive is locked”.
cd C:\ on cmd prompt gives me , “no suitable file system ….
drive is corrupted or system drivers are corrupted”

i am using np550p5c-s05in
i having debian with uefi setup,
both nvidia and its cuda works perfectly, but setting up can be tricky
1. subwoofer, where it stops working after sometime(Still front speakers works perfectly).
2. win8 gets corrupted easily,when using any linux after shutdown(by restarting) from win8 in uefi, specifically when mount windows drives without ro(read-only) options.(advise: never run win8 in UEFI mode(only on secured mode))
3. current nvidia 331.x drivers are having problems such that on running big graphic applications like game and others, it crashes immeditely,(but not on cuda applications)
Did you solved the subwoofer problem? I'm facing the same… no sound comes out but no problem with front speakers.
subwoofer, cuts off mostly when running on battery, i am able to restore by plugging in and out my headphones. i also appended line “options snd-hda-intel model=samsung power_save=0”.
