Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus review - CNET

SideSync was already installed on our Ativ Book 9 Lite review unit, but it needed to be updated. Twice. I also had to download the Samsung App Store on my Galaxy Note II, and then download two separate apps (one for SideSync, and one for mouse/keyboard sharing). Next, I had to find a USB cord to plug the phone into the computer, or use a shared Wi-Fi connection (I had been tethering the laptop to my phone’s cellular connection via Mobile Hotspot, but apparently that connection just didn’t cut it). Then I had to update the software again, since the mouse/keyboard sharing feature wouldn’t work without that update. At that point, I was finally able to connect my Note II to the Ativ Book 9 Lite. So setup was a pain in the neck, but once completed, I really appreciated the connection between the two devices.
