Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176 Review

 

Toshiba recently released a refresh of the popular Satellite A665 notebook with the latest Intel Sandy Bridge processors and graphics. Is the new A665 a worthwhile upgrade to last year's laptop? Keep reading to find out

Blu-ray drive ; Great keyboard ; USB 3.0

No ExpressCard slot ; Weak screen protection ; Mixed performance compared to older models

My only complaints about this notebook are pretty minor. For starters, there aren't too many reasons to buy this notebook if you purchased the A665 last year. That's good for current A665 owners because it means that last year's laptop isn't obsolete,...

Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176

 

The 15-inch Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176X delivers excellent audio and a Blu-ray player at a good price.

For an attractive $799, the Toshiba Satellite A665 delivers great sound, a Blu-ray drive, and fairly long battery life. We just wish it offered better Wi-Fi performance. In this price range, the Samsung SF510 is the more stylish option, but it has a...

Toshiba Satellite A665 Review

 

The Toshiba Satellite A660 and A665 are 16-inch laptops with a reasonably attractive design and solid performance. If you're shopping for a desktop-replacement notebook the Satellite A665 might be a worthy choice. Keep reading to see what we think of...

Attractive design ; Great keyboard ; ExpressCard slot

Weak screen protection ; A little expensive as configured

Toshiba Satellite A665 Review

 

The Toshiba Satellite A665-S6058 is a solid performer for its $899 asking price. Its internal components such as the Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and Nvidia GPU with Optimus make it a strong performer, and its speakers deliver excellent audio. While...

Fast Core i5 processor, Good gaming frame rates for price, Top-of-the-line speakers, Can charge gadgets and play music in sleep mode

Noisy keyboard and touchpad buttons, Relatively short battery life, Overly glossy screen

Toshiba Satellite A665-S6070 review: Toshiba Satellite A665-S6070

 

Powerful processor; large hard drive.

Plastic body feels cheap; low screen resolution.

Toshiba's 16-inch Satellite A665-S6070 desktop replacement offers plenty of performance for just under $1,000, unfortunately wrapped in a dull plastic case.

Toshiba Satellite A665-S6086

 

The "tile"-style keyboard on the two laptops is also identical, where the square, isolated keys resemble Scrabble titles. The keys have pleasant travel, and there's only a slight bit of flex toward the right side of the keyboard and beneath the...

Extended-life battery produces great battery life. WiMax. Solid performance for its price. Great-sounding audio. Beautiful-looking display

Extended-life battery makes the laptop heavy. Glossy display

Long battery life, great audio, and a gorgeous display make the Toshiba Satellite A665-S6086 a great entertainment laptop. Factor in the built-in WiMax radio, and the A665-S6086 has an added mobility factor. However, the extended-life battery adds more...

Toshiba Satellite A665-S6085

 

Toshiba states that the A665D-S6085 has a "tile keyboard," which is a fairly accurate description, as the square shape of the isolated keys looks an awful lot like Scrabble tiles. The keys have decent travel and don't suffer from any noticeable flex. A...

Harmon Kardon speakers dish out delicious-sounding audio. Great-looking display. Blu-ray drive

Disappointing battery life. Glossy display. Display doesn?t support 1080p playback

The Toshiba Satellite A665-S6085 gets the performance boost its predecessor sorely needed, while still being an excellent entertainment laptop, because of its amazing-sounding audio and gorgeous-looking display. A Blu-ray drive sweetens its appeal, but...

Toshiba Satellite A665-S6100X

 

The keyboard deck sports the same textured finish and glossy trim as the lid and will get messy looking if not wiped clean every so often. The full size chiclet-style keyboard is roomy and has a number pad on the right. Keystrokes are firm, and typing...

Reasonably priced. Sandy Bridge Core i7 processor. Blu-ray drive. USB 3.0

Integrated graphics. Smudgy finish. Slow hard drive. So-so battery life

The Toshiba Satellite A665-S6100X doesn't outperform the competition but it does get you into a Sandy Bridge Core i7 desktop replacement notebook for under $1000.

Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176

 

This textured pattern crosses over to the touchpad as well, though it's more subtle. However, whether you like the feel under your finger is a matter of personal preference--I personally don't care for it. Along the top of the touchpad is a glowing...

Second-generation Intel Core i3 processor. Clever features like Sleep-and-Charge and Sleep-and-Listen. Blu-ray drive is a steal at this price. Great speakers and sound

Lackluster display. Hard drive is oh-so-average. Lots of bloatware

The Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176 laptop offers plenty of processing power thanks to its second-generation Intel Core i3-2310M processor. Throw in a Blu-ray player, improved graphics and gaming options, and a sub-$800 price tag, this is an enticing...

Toshiba Satellite A665-S6094

 

The Toshiba Satellite A665-S6094 ($899.99 list, at Best Buy) laptop looks no different than the model we looked at earlier this year, but under the hood it receives a jolt in performance with its quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and discrete ATI...

Harman Kardon speakers deliver outstanding audio. Comfortable keyboard and firm chassis. Touchpad supports multi-touch gestures. WiMax on board

Terrible battery life. Boring, plastic chassis. Hugely clacky mouse buttons. No Blu-ray

Booming audio and quad-core processing highlight the Toshiba Satellite A665-S6094, an otherwise average mainstream laptop.
