 In terms of pure performance, we've seen better multimedia and gaming machines. What we haven't seen -- until now -- is one that packs 3D right out of the box into an attractive chassis with a winning display and high usability. It's expensive, but all things considered, we think the Toshiba Satellite A665-11Z is a thoroughly decent laptop.

Oversize 16- to 18-inch desktop replacement laptops have different standards than the smaller systems you might carry around every day. Battery life isn't much of a concern, as they're too big to fit into a shoulder bag, so high-end components are common, including Intel's Core i7 processors, massive hard drives, and dedicated gaming graphics--all features you're less likely to see on a 13-inch or midsize laptop. 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.

With so much power under the hood, it's not a surprise that the A665 runs very hot, especially when gaming. After an hour or so, the tabletop right next to the vent was not just warm, but downright hot to touch.

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 below-average battery life leaves a sour aftertaste.

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 the keyboard and touchpad buttons don't feel as good as they look, and the battery life isn't that high, the A665 is a multitimedia machine worth owning.

90% Toshiba Satellite A665: Notebook in 3D
Source: Inside HW English
After a few days spent with this PC, it’s a tad difficult to kiss it goodbye. Excellent finish, pleasant and functional design, remarkable hardware components, 3D capabilities, Windows Media Centre support, 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium, TV tuner with RC… The attributes list seems endless. Toshiba has managed to fulfil its own goals perfectly with this Satellite newborn - it’s the ultimate multimedia machine. Luckily for all potential users, this request has not been an easy task to accomplish, and strong hardware which was required to back it all up is perfectly suited for other uses as well (office, business or gaming). The only thing to reproach is the rather anaemic battery, which provides the bare minimum of autonomy. We believe that this was conditioned by the need to cut back on the price somewhere, so this isn’t something to be too critical about. Toshiba’s Satellite A665-11T is well in front of its competitors in many regards, and set an example for a 3D notebook leader, one which will be difficult to dethrone. Finally, the attractive looks and excellently designed texture of the PC that keeps zero fingerprints were the things that we fancied the most.

50% Toshiba A665-3DV: 3D or Not 3D?
Source: AnandTech English
So what's there to say about the Toshiba A665-3DV? A lot, but much of what we have to say isn't that positive. The current (soon-to-be-outdated) 3D Vision notebook experience feels kludgy and tacked on with the A665-3DV, with a separate 3D emitter required. It usually works and when it does it looks fine, but on hardware like the GTS 350M it's more for movies and images than for gaming.

We've seen laptops from the Toshiba Satellite A665 line before (more than once, in fact), and we've also previously seen laptops that incorporate Nvidia's 3D Vision technology. You can probably guess where this is going, as the new Satellite A665-3DV takes that familiar multimedia system and adds support for 3D Vision. Unless you're a huge 3D fan, the high price is a bit of a stretch for the 15.6-inch Toshiba Satellite A665-3DV, but we do appreciate the 3D Blu-ray playback.

With an MSRP of $1,299, the Toshiba Satellite A665-3DV5 boasts a Blu-ray drive, dual core processor, and 4GB of DDR3 memory. However, due to the slow hard drive and merely adequate graphics card, this system is better suited for those wanting to game casually in 3D.

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.

Toshiba reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 310M: The GeForce 310M is the successor of the GeFore G210M and based on the same chip with very similar clock rates (shader speed +30MHz to 1530MHz).

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 350M: According to the released informations, the Geforce GTS 350M should be just a renamed GTS 250M. In the Toshiba A663 it is however a bit lower clocked.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M: The Nvidia GeForce GT 330M is the successor of the GT 230M and technically just a slightly higher clocked GT 240M (but it should still maintain the power envelope of the GT 230M as the naming suggests).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.

740QM:

The Core i7-740QM is a high-end quad-core CPU for laptops (in 2010) with a relative small base clock rate and a high Turbo Boost max frequency of 2.93 GHz (for one core). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow clocked quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 740QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.

2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

Intel Core i3:

370M: The Core i3-370M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.4 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

2310M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.1 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).

Intel Core i5:

460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

450M: Should be similar to the Core i5-520M but without AES functions.


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.

16.0: 16 inch display-variants exist since 2008 and partially got the market share of 15 inch notebooks. 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.

2.6 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.

2.9 kg:

This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


73.34%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
