Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990X


Aside from the questionable click touchpad, everything about the Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990X, from its state-of-the-art features to performance and battery life, is very impressive.

Blu-ray drive included. Excellent typing experience. Backlit keyboard. WiDi 2.0. WiMAX. Comes with Netgear receiver. Fast Core i5 processor. Big 67WH battery yielded over six hours of battery life. Reasonably priced.

Clickpad was non-responsive at times. Design is a bit behind in the times.

Toshiba Satellite E305 (S1990)


Now in its third year, Best Buy's Blue Label program is something of a time capsule for fickle consumer tastes. Being the behemoth that it is, the retail giant hands PC makers a wishlist of specs, design flourishes, and aggressive price points -- all...

Good specs for the money ; Intel Wireless Display 2.0 ; Two-year warranty

Imprecise trackpad ; Keys have a cheap, plasticy finish ; Low-resolution webcam

Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990X Review


The new Toshiba E305 is a Best Buy exclusive laptop with a 14-inch screen and a street price around $900. Packed with an Intel Core i5 "Sandy Bridge" processor, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive and a Blu-ray drive, is this the next great family PC? Keep...

Good performance ; Backlit keyboard ; Blu-ray drive

Cheap feel to construction ; No discrete graphics option ; Integrated touchpad buttons don't work well ; A good 14-inch laptop with lots of features and nice looks but it "feels" like a low-cost PC.

Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990 Review


Best Buy and Toshiba have done it again. For $899, the Satellite E305 delivers a good balance of Core i5 speed and endurance. The design isn't for everyone, but the backlit keyboard, Blu-ray drive, and bundled Wireless Display adapter all help justify...

Fast performance, Backlit keyboard, Blu-ray drive included, Long battery life

Lackluster graphics, Keyboard has some flex

Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990


Toshiba and Best Buy have partnered once more to sell an exclusive 14-inch notebook that marries design flair with cutting-edge features. The Toshiba Satellite E305 ($899) comes with a Blu-ray player, Intel Wireless Display, and several great perks...

Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990 review


Though it may seem like many Toshiba Satellites look the same, that's not necessarily the case if you hang around your local Best Buy. For a few years now, Toshiba has been supplying a Best Buy-exclusive laptop as part of the retailer's Blue Label...

A standout keyboard and touch pad, solid specs, Blu-ray drive, and Intel Wireless Display make the Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990X stand out from the pack--and as a bonus, the retail bundle includes the necessary Netgear box for Wi-Di.

The E305 lacks dedicated graphics, and its Webcam isn't HD.

The Best Buy-exclusive Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990X is a heck of a 14-inch laptop, offering a rock-solid combination of specs and design for a reasonable price.

Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990X


If you're not sure what will sell, try asking your customers. (What a novel idea!) That's what Best Buy did, and it resulted with the superb Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990X, a top-notch, low-price notebook chock-full of features and performance without...

Excellent performance, battery life ; Blu-ray drive ; Backlit keyboard ; Supports WiMAX, WiDi ; Two-year warranty

Flat-sounding speakers ; Noisy fan ; Some annoying alerts

The Satellite E305 pairs superb performance with a slick design to create one of the best thin-and-light laptops on the market.
