  • Conclusion: There’s very little to fault with the Toshiba Satellite U940, because for its price, it does a lot of things right. If you’re in the market for a semi0gaming ultrabook, the Toshiba Satellite U940 should be at the top of your list.

Review Toshiba Satellite U940-101 Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
17 January 2013
  • Summary: Cheap and light. First of all many ultrabooks are expensive. But Toshiba use a simple plastic case for the Satellite U940 and equip the 14-inch laptop with attractive components including a Core i5 and a dedicated SSD cache.
  • Pros: easy to maintain and upgrade, quiet, relatively cheap, good build quality, SSD cache, 2x USB 3.0, Despite the fact that the Satellite U940-101 costs less than 800 Euros (~$1065) and is relatively cheap, it is decently equipped: Core i5 CPU, plenty of memory and even an mSATA-SSD. This price-performance ratio cannot be criticized.
  • Cons: dark, reflective display, inaccurate hinges, very hot under load, spongy keyboard, plastics case, Unfortunately Toshiba had to cut costs elsewhere: build quality and display cannot keep up with more expensive competitors like the Asus UX31A. In addition, the spongy keyboard is disappointing.

Toshiba Satellite U940-100

Techzine
4 February 2014
  • Conclusion: De Toshiba Satellite U940-100 is een laptop die op weinig aspecten weet uit te blinken. Voor de prijs van 640 euro was dit wellicht ook niet te verwachten, maar persoonlijk vind ik deze laptop desalniettemin toch wat duur voor hetgeen je krijgt. Er zijn goedkopere alternatieven zoals de Sleekbook 14 van HP waarmee je niet al te veel hoeft in te boeten qua prestaties en andere aspecten.
  • Pros: Hybride schijf;, Touchpad;, Stille en goede koeling;
  • Cons: Geen touchscreen;, Niet goedkoopste qua hardware;

Toshiba Satellite U940

  • Excerpt: DinSide Toshiba har laget noen fine, veldig lette ultrabooks. Vi husker blant annet godt Z930-11C fra i fjor høst, som bare veide litt over 1 kg og som blant annet imponerte oss med svært god SSD-ytelse.
  • Pros: Kjapp og fin maskin, mye minne, stor hybriddisk, stillegående, meget godt tastatur, full-størrelse tilkoblinger, fin pris
  • Cons: Musepeker "sklir" lett ved museklikk, bare middels diskytelse og batteritid, litt lite motstand i skjermledd, spinkel lyd fra høyttalerne

Test: Toshiba Satellite U940-100 (Notebook)

CHIP Online
12 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Toshibas Satellite U940-100 bietet einen günstigen Einstieg in die Ultrabook-Welt. Leistung, Display-Qualität und Mobilität können wir als praxistauglich beschreiben. Es ist jedoch keinesfalls mit Top-Ultrabooks vom Schlage eines Asus Zenbook oder Samsung Serie 9 vergleichbar - die sind allerdings auch massiv teurer.
  • Pros: Günstiger Preis, Viel Festspeicher, Entspiegeltes Display, Beleuchtete Tastatur
  • Cons: Relativ niedrige Laufzeit
