Toshiba Satellite L755-S5166 Review
The features and performance of the Satellite L755-S5166 are typical for a budget laptop. The system doesn't have any serious drawbacks, but neither does it have any significant strengths.
Toshiba Satellite L775-S5166 reviews describe this as a pedestrian laptop. In a Satellite L755-S5166 review at About.com, an expert writes that the system is what you'd expect for the money, even if it doesn't exactly stand out from the competition. One notable feature: a larger-than-usual 640GB hard drive, where most comparable models house a 500GB hard drive. This Toshiba Satellite L775-S5166 (starting at $500, Amazon) review also notes that, as other manufacturers move to island-style keyboards, with space between the keys, this laptop sports a traditional keyboard, which some users may prefer. A CNET reviewer dislikes the touchpad, declaring it too small and narrow. In testing he also found the battery life subpar: four hours and 10 minutes in testing. Otherwise the laptop's performance was pretty good for a system with an Intel Core i3 CPU, according to this Satellite L755-S5166 review. A Laptop Mag expert considers the large, vibrant display a point in this model's favor and agrees that it delivers solid performance for the price.
The Toshiba Satellite L755-S5166 runs on an Intel Core i3-2350M CPU and comes with 4GB of RAM. The 15.6-inch screen is the largest among our picks. Connectivity options include an Ethernet port and support for Wi-Fi. This system also has a memory card reader, three USB 2.0 ports (but no USB 3.0 port with a faster transfer rate), and an HDMI port.
The Toshiba Satellite L755-S5166 is simply a standard-issue laptop. It doesn't have any grave weaknesses, although its battery life could be better and the lack of a USB 3.0 port will turn off some potential buyers. Satellite L755-S5166 reviews indicate it performs well for a Core i3 system priced below $600, making it a respectable though not outstanding value.
