Toshiba NB520: Sounds Great and Performs Well

Tech2
23 May 2011
  • Summary: The Toshiba NB520 is priced at Rs. 21,490 which is just about right for its performance and features. The speakers sound great and the performance is a lot better thanks to the extra RAM and let’s not forget the sleep utility feature that helps save power. The keyboard and the bezel are not the best but after some getting used to, you won’t really have a problem with this netbook.

Review Toshiba NB520-108 Netbook

Notebookcheck
9 March 2011
  • Summary: Sound miracle. As a counterpart to its AMD Fusion NB550D sister-model, the NB520 charges ahead with a dual-core Atom N550. First-class subwoofer-sound remains on board. Can it manage to muster eight hour runtimes and tackle Intel GMA HD videos? Find out in this review.
  • Pros: Solid feel, Constantly cool case, Well laid-out keyboard, Touchpad with good feedback, Good sound with subwoofer, Good battery life, Low energy consumption, A sweet blanket of sound projects from the small netbook. Some multimedia-noetbooks would be jealous.
  • Cons: Fan constantly perceptible and restless, Low performance, Long charging time of 4:30 hours, TFT not anti-glare, Limited brightness for outdoors, Few connection ports, As a non-HD variant, it should have gotten a matte and bright TFT.

Обзор нетбука Toshiba NB520-108

Notebookcheck.ru
19 April 2011
  • Conclusion: При цене, стартующей с отметки в 329 Евро , Toshiba NB520-108 представляет собой хорошо сбалансированный нетбук. Его производительность слегка выше, чем у конкурентов с одноядерными процессорами (N450/N455). Теперь система работает чуть более плавно, хотя назвать её "быстрой" всё еще нельзя. Система на базе Atom N550 по результатам тестов оказалась чуть быстрее, чем её близкий родственник в виде NB550D с AMD Fusion APU.

Análise do Netbook Toshiba NB520-108

Notebookcheck
12 April 2011
  • Conclusion: A partir de 329 Eu ros , o Toshiba NB520-108 traz um pacote muito completo para o mercado.  O desempenho está um pouco melhorado sobre os netbook de um só núcleo (N450/N455).  O trabalho agora é executado mais fluentemente, embora o adjetivo “veloz” não pode ser realmente utilizado aqui. O sistema Atom N550 é mais veloz ao medir o desempenho do sistema, que o modelo irmão NB550D com AMD Fusion APU.

Análisis Portátil Toshiba NB520-108

Notebookcheck.es
10 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Empezando a 329 Eu ros , el Toshiba NB520-108 trae al mercado un paquete netbook casi polifacético. El rendimiento se ve ligeramente mejorado comparado con el de los netbooks de núcleo único (N450/N455).  El trabajo ahora va mas suave, aunque el adjetivo "rápido" no puede usarse aquí. El sistema Atom N550 es más rápido cuando se mide el rendimiento de sistema  de lo que lo es el de su modelo hermano NB550D con AMD Fusion APU.

  • Conclusion: Il Toshiba NB520 è un netbook piccolo e compatto dal design accattivante e caratterizzato dalla presenza di altoparlanti Harman/Kardon, per un audio eccezionale. Sempre da sottolineare anche l’elevata autonomia a disposizione, ben 10 ore, e una funzione che consente di riprodurre i file presenti su una periferica collegata, anche a computer spento.
  • Pros: Altoparlanti Harman Kardon; Display con retroilluminazione LED; Funzione Sleep and Music
  • Cons: Qualità webcam
