Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176

60% Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176

When stacked up against the finest desktop replacements, like the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Thunderbolt) and Dell XPS 15 (Sandy Bridge), the Toshiba Satellite A665-S5176 feels like a low-rent pretender, unable to compete with the high-grade components or command $2000 prices. But when measured against bargain laptops, like the Editors' Choice Acer Aspire AS5742-647, the A665-S5176 can be seen for the steal that it is, offering the latest components, like a second-generation Intel processor, premium sound, or a Blu-ray drive—for an affordable price.

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, but it means that consumers will be alright if they buy an older configuration of the A665 that is on sale. I'm extremely glad that Toshiba added a USB 3.0 port to the A665-S5176, but if you are someone who uses the ExpressCard slot then you're out of luck. Although I'd like to see Toshiba improve the durability of the screen lid the new Satellite A665 still offers a great value for people shopping for a 15-inch multimedia laptop.

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 weaker processor and lacks Blu-ray. The Dell XPS 15 has even better audio than the A665 and gives you a more powerful Core i5 processor and Nvidia graphics for the same price, and you can add a Blu-ray for just $100 more. Overall, the A665-S5176 is a compelling multimedia laptop for the price.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
