Toshiba Satellite L775-125 Notebook Review

Toshiba adds a desktop replacement 17-inch bridge of sand latest hardware on the market with the Satellite L775-125. Moreover, there is a Nvidia GeForce 525M GT makes the game possible.

Toshiba launches a big 17-inch multimedia notebook on the market called Satellite L775-125. In particular, the Satellite L775-125 of the big screen makes it an interesting non-cash (DTR). The equipment, which consists of the current processor, Intel's Sandy Bridge family, and the midrange Nvidia GeForce graphics card, does not make this seem so implausible application in the field, either. A large 500GB hard drive should be sufficient for most users so far, and 4 GB of RAM should provide good performance.

Toshiba Satellite L775-125 is also quite light gray. Figure used in laptop screen cover, which is strongly reminiscent of a pair of clothes (Toshiba called the Matrix model considered). Toshiba logo crests at the center of the screen door. While Toshiba uses glossy plastic finish is remarkably resistant to fingerprints.

Most riding schools do not leave marks on the surface of a laptop. Only the dust is obviously of interest to the surface. A visible layer of dust accumulates rapidly, while the computer is connected to the table for some time. When the notebook is opened, which is not only possible with one hand, you can still see the shiny surface.

The hinges are not pulled too tight. Consequently, it is possible to prevent the big screen wobbles. Toshiba has taken the design of a coherent and gray are also contained in a single model. We did not find fingerprints visible on the wrist rest, even after longer use.

What a professional, portable, in principle, makes a good impression. While the big screen is not particularly rigid and the display cover can be easily printed, the overall growth in the production of components is acceptable. There are no creaking sounds when pressure is applied.

The wrist rest could not be more stable. It does not produce even a millimeter, even at high pressure. The keyboard is also quite stable. Only the numeric keypad, directly above the optical drive can be pushed a bit 'of selection pressure. In addition, we move away from a laptop on the right side, and hundreds less than the keyboard.

While Toshiba has a large 17-inch laptop, it is not, at least not with a lot of interfaces. Thus, only has three USB ports. This series consists of two USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 port. Interfaces like eSATA, or an ExpressCard slot is not installed, either. Toshiba Satellite L775-125: The connection is quite comparable to the 15-inch laptop.

In addition, Toshiba has created the majority of the ports on the front of the laptop. Even if only as the audio interface and two USB ports are on the right front edge, almost all the front doors are left. This can lead to confusion of cables. Especially when the computer is still a place that is not uncommon for 17-inch laptop.

The Intel Core i5-2410M, a process is currently very popular in the latest generation of Intel Sandy Bridge, is installed on the Toshiba Satellite. Although the mid-range dual processor is preferably used in laptops 15 inches, yet offers enough power for most applications in 17-inch laptops.

The processor is faster with a clock speed of 2.3 Ghz default. If the performance bottlenecks of Intel Turbo Boost is enabled. Clock frequency of CPU can be increased without user intervention. The clock frequency can be increased up to 2.9 GHz as required and cooling the processor. 2.9 GHz is achieved when a kernel is loaded.

The clock is only increased to 2.6 GHz when the power of two cores are required. In addition, the processor is quite modest in terms of cooling with a TDP of 35 watts. Therefore, the Toshiba Satellite L775-125 should have no problem in cooling the processor.

Although Intel Graphics HD 3000 is included in the processor, Toshiba is exclusively based on the Nvidia GeForce 2048 GT 525M graphics MB of DDR3 memory. Similarly, the processor, it is a mid-level model, which would be perfectly adequate for ordinary users. Graphics cards based on the GF108 and the nucleus is very similar to the GT 425M.

However, the 525M GT has a clock speed increased slightly. In addition to the graphics card capable of DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0. In addition, Office, Internet and multimedia, graphics card is also suitable for casual wear. Even if compromises need to be more sophisticated games, such as the Metro 2033, the old games you can play very high quality settings. We use programs Cinebench R10 and R11.5 in 64-bit version to verify the performance of the processor. Toshiba Satellite L775-125 when a score of 4505.0 points in Cinebench R10 rendering single (64 bits) of reference. It is in the top third of our reference table. The first is for the slower models in this exercise compared to other laptops that use an Intel Core i5-2410M.

For example, hearing-SX121V K53SV Asus laptop (2410M GT, 540) for high-end models with a Core i5-2410M processor with 4649.0 points. The Medion Akoya P6631 (2410M GT 540) offers a performance similar to 4494.0 points. Toshiba to catch up in Cinebench R10 rendering multi (64 bits), and is a benchmark in midfield with 9575.0 points. Models by Asus K73SV-TY032V (2410M GT, 540) is in a similar series with 9659.0 points. Unfortunately, the Cinebench R11.5 does not allow any precise conclusion, because the ranking is too vague. Toshiba Satellite L775-125 to obtain a score of 2.6 points here, and is therefore at the same level as other notebooks have Core i5-2410M processor. There are only a few exceptions, reaching only 2.5 points here.

Finally, the Toshiba Satellite L775-125 offers the performance expected. Toshiba has not exhausted the processor installed the last piece of performance, but the laptop can not stand as a whole, a good midfield and comparable notebooks.

Benchmarks, PCMark Vantage PCMark and 7 on the evaluation of the entire system. Benchmarks to evaluate the entire system and the rate accordingly. Toshiba Satellite L775-125 laptop is in a position of midfielder in our reference table with 6053.0 points in PCMark Vantage overall assessment.

It is one of the laptops like Dell Inspiron 17R Laptop (N7110) (2410M GT 525 million) with 6134.0 points and the Toshiba Satellite L755-14P laptop (2401M, HD 3000 Graphics) with 5951.0 points. Toshiba Satellite is faster in the lower midfield PCMark 7 (compared to other phones that also has an Intel Core i5-2410M). System performance is acceptable at all, but nothing special compared to other phones.

As expected, the graphics card in mid-range Nvidia GeForce GT 525, put the laptop at about the middle of our reference table. 3DMark06 is used as a benchmark. Toshiba Satellite L775-125 Laptop reached 6681.0 points. It is therefore in the range of immediate Dell XPS Studio 16 (P8600, HD 4670) which gained 6704.0 points and even excels Satellite L775-125 a little.

Acer Aspire 7551G-N934G64Bn Mobile (N930, HD 5650) is slightly lower than that of the Toshiba laptop with 6661.0 points. Fast Toshiba models belongs to a little slower compared to other laptops that use the Nvidia GeForce 525 million. Toshiba achieved the score is slightly below average.

Toshiba to use the hard drive Seagate ST9500325AS. It is a 2.5-inch 5400-rpm model. Compliant with the current standard hard drive (gross) capacity of 500 GBS. This level is not anything special, either. The average transfer rate of 63.1 MB / sec and the access speed of 19.2 milliseconds are prices that can be easily reached from other hard drives, too.
