Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite L55DT-A5253

60% Toshiba Satellite L55Dt-A5253 review: This 15.6-inch budget laptop does well on benchmarks but has some physical drawbacks
Source: PC World English
The Satellite L55Dt-A5253 is a well-built laptop that delivers good performance, but many of its drawbacks don’t show up in its benchmark numbers: It’s weighs 5.6 pounds, its off-axis viewing is abysmal, and it has third-rate wireless networking capabilities. Clearly, it’s not the best notebook in this collection, but it’s still a decent value.
