Toshiba NB205

maximum pc
17 November 2009
  • Summary: With a lap weight of two pounds, 15 ounces, the NB205 is firmly in the middle of the netbook weight class. Its price, battery life, aesthetics, and performance put it near the top of the current generation, and we appreciate perks like Sleep-and-Charge. It’s one of the best netbooks on the market today. But TORX screws on the hard drive compartment? Toshiba, you were so close.
  • Pros: Excellent battery life; good looks; good performance; competitive price; Sleep-and-Charge USB.
  • Cons: Totally unnecessary use of TORX screws; slightly odd keyboard.

Toshiba Mini NB205-N330 review

Liliputing
3 November 2009
  • Summary: The Toshiba Mini NB205-N330 is an interesting machine. It has an excellent, if somewhat quirky keyboard and the best touchpad I’ve used that doesn’t support multitouch gestures. It gets decent battery life, although the battery doesn’t appear to last as long when running Windows 7 Starter as it does with Windows XP. And with all of Toshiba’s power saving settings enabled, the computer performance does slow down a bit.

Toshiba mini NB205-N330BL

LAPTOP Magazine
9 October 2009
  • Summary: Although the $419 mini NB205-N330BL isn’t radically different from its predecessor, it can be argued that one of the finest netbooks didn’t need much fixing. Granted, we would’ve welcomed Nvidia’s Ion platform (the HP Mini 311 has it for $399) to give users more gaming and HD video punch, but the advantage of the NB205 is that it lasts over three hours longer than the 311.
  • Pros: Slick design, Roomy comfortable keyboard, Relatively large hard drive with 3D accelerometer, Nearly 9 hours of battery life, Sleep and Charge USB port,
  • Cons: divspan lang"EN"Windows 7 Starter limitationsspandiv, divspan lang"EN"spanspan lang"EN"Mediocre speakersspandiv,

  • Conclusion: Being late to the game has its advantages; you learn from other companies’ experiences and make yours better. Toshiba did a good job at that with its first Netbook. The Toshiba mini NB205 has good processing power for a Netbook thanks to the N280 processor, solid Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, a good software bundle and ample ports including a Sleep and Charge USB port.
  • Pros: The look is hot! Good performance on video playback, stellar battery life., Awesome looking netbook with very useable keyboard. Good performance in most tasks including video playback. Solid Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Great battery life.
  • Cons: Poor speaker location., Speaker is muffled, lacks graphics power for gaming.

Toshiba Mini NB205 review – best matte 10 inch netbook

netbooklive.com
5 August 2009
  • Conclusion: I for one like this Toshiba NB205 netbook a lot, mostly because of its matte finish. But it’s also solid built and powerful enough for everyday use and has most of the features i would need (i don’t care about speakers or webcam). The good battery life and comfortable chiclet keyboard are also pluses. Of course, it has its lacks and the top version is quite expensive.
  • Pros: matte case and mattish (somewhere between glossy and matte) screen, visible in strong light conditions, overall good looking and solid built, 10 inch display and 1024 x 600 px, the up to 8 hours tested battery life should be enough for every user, good hardware specs: N280 CPU, 1 GB of RAM, 160 GB hard drive, some versions come with a chiclet type keyboard, available in 4 different colors
  • Cons: some might consider the non-glossy finish a little bit dull, it’s just a tad heavier and thicker than the standard netbooks, no Wi-fi Draft N or 3G, webcam has only 0.3 Mpx, speaker is only mono, so you’ll have to use it with headphones, some versions are a little bit pricey

Toshiba Mini NB205-N310 review

Techworld
17 July 2009
  • Summary: Considering all the features packed into the Toshiba Mini NB205-N310 - and how well it performs in a pinch - this is an easy-to-recommend netbook that's perfect whether you are a budget-minded businessman or you just need a flexible minimachine for a long day of note-taking. If this netbook ponied up a little more horsepower (a discrete GPU wouldn't hurt), we'd probably use this as our go-to gadget.

Toshiba mini NB205

LAPTOP Magazine
16 June 2009
  • Summary: In creating its first netbook for the U.S., Toshiba has learned from the mistakes and successes of its rivals, and one-upped them all. Its mini NB205 has everything we’d recommend in a netbook: an attractive chassis, comfortable keyboard and touchpad, and more than nine hours of battery life for an affordable price.
  • Pros: Unique design, More than 9 hours of battery life, Comfortable keyboard and large touchpad, Hard drive protection, USB port charges device when system is off,
  • Cons: Large display bezel, Long boot time,
