Review Toshiba NB520-108 Netbook


Sound miracle. As a counterpart to its AMD Fusion NB550D sister

Solid feel; Constantly cool case; Well laid-out keyboard; Touchpad with good feedback; Good sound with subwoofer; Good battery life; Low energy consumption

Fan constantly perceptible and restless; Low performance; Long charging time of 4:30 hours; TFT not anti-glare; Limited brightness for outdoors; Few connection ports

Why does Samsung manage to keep perfect control of its netbook fan while Toshiba on the other hand does not?

Toshiba NB520: Sounds Great and Performs Well


Just a few days back we saw the ASUS 1015PEM, sporting a dual-core Intel Atom N550 processor. It still wasn't the best in terms of performance. So what does Toshiba's NB520, which boasts of almost the same specs, have to offer? Design The NB520...

The Toshiba NB520 is priced at Rs. 21,490 which is just about right for its performance and features. The speakers sound great and the performance is a lot better thanks to the extra RAM and let’s not forget the sleep utility feature that helps save...

Toshiba NB 520 review


The Toshiba NB520 has the same basic specification that you'll see on a lot of netbooks - a 320GB hard disk, 1GB of memory and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N2600. It's not exactly a processing powerhouse, with it only achieving an overall score of 11 in our...

A great media-playing netbook, despite its low screen resolution

A great media-playing netbook, despite its low screen resolution

On paper, the NB520 is the same as other new N2600-based netbooks, its excellent build quality, dual-band Wi-Fi and atypically good speakers mean that it's in a different league to most of its rivals. Fortunately, it isn’t significantly more expensive,...

Toshiba NB520


Toshiba's latest 10.1in netbook might sport the same old Atom internals, but it's the most stylish and best-sounding netbook we've reviewed.

Great speakers, Stylish design, Good build, Comfortable ergonomics, Affordable

Toshiba - NB520


Netbooks haven't moved on much recently. Their place has in part been usurped by the iPad 2 and Android tablets, while their general specifications have languished in a sort of limbo as other laptop computers get ...

The Toshiba NB520 is a standard netbook on the inside, except for a superb pair of speakers. On the outside a lovely keyboard makes for good user ergonomics and the colour scheme simply looks attractive. In a sea full of similar products, Toshiba has...

Toshiba NB520 review


Excellent speakers for a netbook, and some nice media features too. It all depends on Toshiba's pricing

And then there's the question of price, on which Toshiba is remaining noncommittal right now. Given the Harman/Kardon involvement and the effort put into giving it a unique look, we're not expecting the NB520 to be among the bargains of the netbook...
