Practical

28 May 2013
  • Summary: This laptop is fantastic if your a person in which travels alot on train, but not practical for home use for example you tube or face book. Personally I only think this laptop is good for mainly company use not for individual use. The laptops speed and efficiency is great, i click on my start tool and it opens google in a blink (providing the 3G/4G Wifi) is at a good coverage.
  • Pros: Practical, quick
  • Cons: Business use only

"Not without issues"

PatrickRBC, CNET
31 December 2010
  • Summary: I've generally been a fan of Toshiba laptops but have been haunted by the overheating issues with my last two. Nothing worse than a sudden shut down when you haven't saved your game for a while. I'll be looking elsewhere for my next one. No fault of the laptop, but unfortunately turns out that my eyes can't manage the 3D system either.
  • Pros: Good on paper, love the back lit keyboard and runs well... for a while.
  • Cons: Real tendency to overheat and just shut down in the middle of something, especially with gaming. Battery life is terrible, after a year I was lucky to get 15 minutes of battery life.

"Not a bad machine if paying under $1,000"

Moneymouse, CNET
21 December 2010
  • Summary: I've had notebooks since 2001, three of them were Toshiba and two of those Toshiba notebooks had HDD issues including this one, A660. It failed just in three months after the warranty expired. I'll fix this one by replacing the HDD with SDD, but my next new laptop won't be Toshiba...
  • Pros: Good performer, enjoyed 3D movies watching, keyboard backlight.
  • Cons: Battery sucks, not reliable HDD, volume buttons don't work intermittently.

"An okay laptop"

HenryT2, CNET
17 November 2010
  • Summary: I have had this Toshiba A660 for around 2 years now, and we have had some problems like it overheating while running games, the keyboard is quite flimsy and floppy as keys can easily break, the hard drive failing at one point, and the battery life is shocking even when settings are down to their lowest or in economy mode. Everything else has been good about it...
  • Pros: Performance, Screen resolution, Stylish
  • Cons: Overheating, Battery life, Flimsy Keyboard, Tempermental at times

"its a good laptop for entertainment"

Luchanov, CNET
25 October 2010
  • Summary: i bought this laptop A660 07U in September 2010. i noticed from the beginning that even in eco mode the fan kicks in! when you disconnect it from the power off the wall - (switch to battery) then the fan turns off. then the battery only lasts roundabout an hour. tends to freeze from time to time on the internet. can't handle movement so keep it on the flat surface.last week got a message- battery is getting weak. two days ago got a message its stuffed! get a new battery!
  • Pros: i7 grunty
  • Cons: overheats fast, battery sucks, bit of a freezer occasionally on the internet after pronlonged surfing ie 1-2 hours

Yo tengo una y no estoy muy a gusto con su tamaño!!!

Noe2000, Ciao
25 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Tengo una y en realidad es un buen producto, pero me parece demasiado grande, estoy un poco arrepentida ya que para transportarla es bastante difícil y nada cómodo, les recomiendo comprarse una de menos pulgadas, sino por lo demás es muy buena y bonita!!! Yo pienso que es buena calidad y diseño agradable, solo el tamaño me da un poco de insatisfacción, ahora prefiero una más pequeña, ya que los números los tengo dos veces y en realidad el tamaño y el peso no son nada...
  • Pros: Bonita, buenos materiales
  • Cons: muy grande
