Review Toshiba Satellite L775-125 Notebook

 

An average model. Toshiba adds a 17 inch desktop replacement with the latest Sandy Bridge hardware to the market with the Satellite L775-125. Moreover, there is an Nvidia GeForce GT 525M that makes gaming possible.

Plain design, Mostly resistant against fingerprints despite high-gloss surfaces, Big keyboard with big keys, Toshiba gives the Satellite L775-125 a plain exterior that is resistant to fingerprints despite high-gloss surfaces

Meager connectivity, Keyboard is susceptible for fingerprints, Contrast poor display, The Satellite L775-125 only has few ports for a 17 inch laptop. A couple of USB ports extra wouldn't have been bad at all

Great Screen And Fast Shipping

 

This was a lot more stable than buying from the big e and I trust Newegg if problems arise compared. Fast response from the provider and quick tracking.

I was leery at first since the LCD wasn't coming directly from Newegg but one of its partners. I was mainly worried about the speed of shipping and I was not disappointed. The LCD was packed extremely well and was here within 5 days from order....

none at all

good laptop for mom

 

Considering the price, the laptop is a good gift for mom :)

I bought this for my mom. 17 inches display with 1600x900 resolution is super cool for her eyes. i5 CPU/4G RAM/ 640G HDD are powerful enough. Weight is OK for a 17" laptop. Battery is also OK

Keyboard is too cheap. There are no separated keys to tune the volume and brightness of the display. The boundary between touch pad and palm pad is ambiguous. Hard to tell where is the touch zone

Toshiba laptop

 

Needed something simple as I am not an expert on technology, this fits the bill. Simple and mostly self explanatory to use. Good for the price and easy to use.
