  • Wow.....

    It's amazing what goes into a factory of this enormous scale.

    Did anyone notice the garage doors in the side of the Fabs in the larger pics? It looked like garage doors in the sides several stories up. Good thing this isn't a Foxconn factory.

  • Picture 6 shows how fast Koreans can develop a region. Magnificent facility. I admire their dedication as much as I can perceive from this virtual tour.

    It's not unusual for them to outsource some of their production to the largest producer of LCD's. Probably though, some of their higher-end or newer models may still be made by Sony itself.

    Ha ha. Proves something about XPs popularity, an OS that refuses to die despite its creator's sincere efforts.

  • Put more than one picture per page and increase the resolution too. It is really that hard to follow Anandtech and Engadget in adapting a new format for the new century? It is 2010 already.

  • I agree. Why not bigger resolution images in this site that is also easy to navigate, like an image that blows up once clicked?

    Anyways, I read everything and slowly going through each page. Nice trip! Hope to see more from Samsung. (they're now making mirrorless digital cameras too)

  • warezme, you have no idea what you are talking about. South Korea is a booming democratic capitalist society. I assure you, they are paid a competitive wage.

  • and i am pretty sure that $30 a month is to pay for living in Samsung's dorms, not their wages per month
