Toshiba Satellite P755-3DV20 Review: Affordable 3D Fun

 

The Toshiba Satellite P755 is part of the P750 series and is designed to strike a balance between a budget 15-inch laptop and a powerful multimedia PC. Is it possible to deliver a great 3D entertainment PC for an affordable price? Keep reading to find...

Nvidia 3D Vision display and glasses ; Good general performance ; Affordable price for 3D

Not enough power for serious 3D gaming ; Weak battery life ; Unimpressive build quality at this price range

The 3D performance is also something of a mixed bag. The Nvidia GeForce GT 540M graphics provide barely enough performance for older 3D games which means this notebook is really only intended for watching 3D movies on the road or when connected to your...

Toshiba Satellite P755-3DV20: Does 3D Very Well, but Not Design

 

The Toshiba Satellite P755-3DV20 laptop, as its model number suggests, is touted for its 3D capabilities. It isn't the prettiest laptop I've ever seen, and some aspects of its design (namely its keyboard, its touchpad, and the bright LEDs all over the...

3D performance is impressive ; General performance is very good

Battery life is low for the category ; Laptop looks cheap; lots of annoyingly bright LEDs

If Toshiba had paid more attention to design than to 3D performance, this would be an excellent laptop.

Toshiba Satellite P755-3DV20 - Core i5 2410M 2.3GHz - 15.6-inch TFT - with Nvidia 3D Vision Kit review

 

Why is 3D in laptops still a novelty? Chalk it up to the extra cost of 3D technology, the awkwardness of wearing special glasses, and the lack of killer apps for the average user. Still, it's a current trend, and the technology has been in laptops far...

The Toshiba Satellite P755-3DV20 is packed with features: Blu-ray, midrange Nvidia graphics, and Nvidia 3D Vision with included glasses, along with Harman Kardon speakers and USB 3.0.

Battery life is under 3 hours at best, and hard-core 3D enthusiasts would likely prefer a larger, higher-resolution screen.

The 3D-enabled Toshiba Satellite P755-3DV20 is one of the more affordable 3D-enabled laptops, but it lacks the horsepower we've seen in more-robust 3D gaming laptops.

Toshiba Satellite P755-S5272

 

The Toshiba Satellite P755 offers quad-core power and Blu-ray playback, but the design and short battery life will give some pause.

The $949 Toshiba Satellite P755-S5272 offers great processing power along with a crisp screen and loud and rich audio. However, poor battery life and weak graphics performance keep this notebook from being one of our favorites. We're also not fans of...

Toshiba Satellite P755-S5269

 

The P755-S5269's 15.6-inch display has a 1366-by-768 resolution and is large enough to watch DVDs or multitask with two windows side by side. Just below the widescreen display you will find two Harman/Kardon speakers. Paired with Dolby Advanced Audio...

An Intel Core i7 offers quad-core processing power. Nvidia switchable GPU will do right by gaming standards. WiDi 2.0. Luxurious finish. Backlit keyboard

Thick and heavy plastic design. Battery life falls short of competitors

The Toshiba Satellite P755-S5269 desktop replacement laptop offers high-end processing and gaming-level graphics without going overboard on price.

Toshiba Satellite P755-S5390

 

Sometimes all you need is a computer that can get things done. That description definitely applies to the Toshiba Satellite P755-S5390 ($799.99 list at Staples), a good-size laptop with an eye-catching design and some forward-thinking hardware that...

Excellent productivity performance. Attractive design

Poor battery life. Unimpressive gaming capabilities. Inconvenient mouse buttons

The Toshiba Satellite P755-S5390 laptop is a top-notch performer of most traditional processing tasks, but it lacks gaming prowess and an ability to survive long away from a power outlet.

Toshiba Satellite P755-S5320

 

It 15.6-inch widescreen is the perfect size for multitasking, allowing you have view two windows side-by-side. The display has a 1,366-by-768 resolution, standard for this price range. Above the screen is a webcam for video chatting. The keyboard is in...

Big 640GB hard drive. WiDi 2.0 wireless display technology onboard. USB 3.0. No bloatware

Design not as luxurious as other notebooks. Better budget systems can be had for the same price

The Toshiba Satellite P755-S5320 has some wireless features that may lure some buyers, but there are better budget laptops out there for less.

GOOD FOR GAMING!

Toshiba Satellite P755-3DV20

 

If you've had even a sparkle of interest in true-3D laptops, but have been turned off by the field so far, now might be a good time to revisit it. Let's be clear: We know the appeal of 3D on notebooks is limited. After all, nothing can make a 15- or...

Great 3D image quality ; Decent performance ; Discrete graphics ; 3D Blu-ray player

Short battery life ; 3D requires clunky glasses ; Mediocre selection of ports ; Some crosstalk artifacts

Equipped with Nvidia’s 3D Vision graphics technology, this Satellite model delivers realistic 3D movies and games in a stylish 15-inch chassis. Its battery life and port selection are mediocre, however.
