Review Toshiba Satellite A660-151 Notebook

 

Entertainment Program. Toshiba's 16 incher scores with good sound

Good sound with bass; Gaming starter; Good application performance; Quiet office mode; Low energy requirement; Feedback strong keyboard

Poor contrasts; TFT not AR coated; Short battery life; Loud under load

Toshiba Satellite L550-207: With a strong HD 5165 starting at 660 euro, it's a price hit. Satellite L670D-120: For AMD fans with a Phenom II X3 P829 and HD 5650. Also look at the Acer Aspire 5625G-P924G50Mn with Phenom II X4 P920 & HD 5650. Medion...

Toshiba Satellite A660/07R (PSAW3A-07R00R) 3D gaming notebook

 

While 3D gaming hasn't taken off in a huge way, users who want a more immersive gaming experience might want to consider the Toshiba Satellite A660/07...

Good configuration, huge hard drive capacity, above-average graphics performance, Blu-ray writer

Poor battery life, 32-bit Windows 7 is installed by default, too much preinstalled software makes for annoying user experience, keyboard keys too smooth, screen too glossy

The Toshiba Satellite A660/07R (PSAW3A-07R00R) is a good notebook if you're looking for something that can deliver strong performance, and it's also something early adopters might want to check out because of its 3D gaming capabilities. But overall, it...

Toshiba Satellite A660-15T review

 

At first glance, the Toshiba Satellite A660-15T looks like a one of Toshiba's typical business laptops. It's not shiny, pretty or finished with silver trim – it's…

The Toshiba Satellite A660-15T is not the most attention-grabbing of entertainment notebooks – until you switch it on for the white lightshow. A quad-core processor keeps it fast but don't expect to spend much time away from the mains.

Toshiba Satellite A660-17T review

 

Toshiba has managed to squeeze a large 16in widescreen display into its Satellite A660 laptop. Combined with a surprisingly good set of speakers, this makes the A660 a well-balanced desktop replacement, perfect for media playback.

A competent desktop replacement, but it's more expensive than similarly specified rivals.

Recommended!

Toshiba Satellite A660-14C

 

Toshiba balances price and performance perfectly for this 16-inch, Blu-ray equipped multimedia laptop.

Excellent value ; Solid performance ; Fantastic speakers

Uses slower 10/100 Mb Fast Ethernet ; Disappointing DVD playback ; Lack of Bluetooth

Toshiba has hit a nice sweet-spot in the Satellite A660, offering solid performance and excellent multimedia features at a very attractive price. Toshiba could do better in the aesthetic design apartment, but the functional appearance is matched by...

Toshiba Satellite A660

 

The configuration of the Toshiba Satellite A660 that we reviewed, the A660-T15, has its flaws, but it's a great all-rounder nevertheless. Although its 16-inch screen could be more vivid, it offers strong performance, a carefully crafted design, and a...

Strong performance ; pleasantly designed ; good keyboard and trackpad

Poor battery life ; display isn&apos ; t great

Although the configuration of the Toshiba Satellite A660 that we reviewed, the A660-T15, has an underwhelming display and pretty rubbish battery life, its positive points outweigh its faults. It's a highly usable all-rounder that offers good multimedia...

Strong performance ; Pleasantly designed ; Good keyboard and trackpad

Poor battery life ; Display isn't great

Conclusion Although we'd have liked a brighter, more vivid display, there's really very little to dislike about the Toshiba Satellite A660-15T. It's well built and pleasantly designed, with great multimedia capability and the ability to handle all but...

Toshiba Satellite A660/07R

 

Toshiba's 3D-capable laptop works exceptionally well as a desktop replacement, especially for gamers.

In-built 3D works very well ; High performance ; Backlit keyboard with full number pad ; Includes Blu-ray playback

HDD parking sensor is overly sensitive ; Battery life is ridiculously low

The A660 is a high-end gamer's laptop, priced accordingly and with very few pretensions to mobile work, especially given its 2.62kg carrying weight and sub-par battery life. If you can live with those restrictions and want an all-in-one home...
