With the Satellite L50-C-275, we have a new model with the L50 series below assessment. In comparison to its predecessor models (Satellite L50-B), Toshiba has changed lots of points. A new case is employed. Additionally, the genuine toshiba pa5024u 1brs/toshiba laptop battery pa5024u 1brs Radeon graphic from the predecessor has made way for the GeForce 930M GPU as well as the Broadwell processors have already been replaced by Skylake models. Our review will reveal, whether the Satellite has benefited from these changes. The Satellite has several competitors, including the Acer Aspire E5-573G, the HP Pavilion 15, as well as the Lenovo Z51-70.
Design and construction
Quite frankly, the style is certainly the strong suit of this spending budget machine and pa5186u 1brs/pa5186u 1brs white/toshiba pa5186u 1brs battery although this is a rather subjective opinion, the notebook seriously looks sleek and polished. Likely certainly one of the best-looking laptops in this price range available right now.
Just just like the complete chassis, the lid is completely made of plastic imitating brushed aluminum, but with glossy finish. That a single last part surely prevents the surface from attracting nasty smudges and microsoft surface 3 charger/surface 3 13w fingerprints. That’s a definitely critical aspect to consider. It looks clean without having any distractions except for the Toshiba logo in the bottom left corner. On the other side on the lid, you can locate the 15.6-inch Full HD screen, built-in microphone and pa5109u 1brs/toshiba battery pa5109u 1brs webcam on top. It is also worth mentioning that the bezels about the screen are fairly thin – something we are not utilized to seeing in Toshiba laptops. The back of the lid bends a lot when pressure is applied, but interestingly adequate, pushing it doesn’t cause ripples to appear on the screen. So apart from the truth that the back of the macbook pro 13 charger 60w/macbook pro 13 inch 60w magsafe power adapter lid bends simply, your LCD screen will most in all probability remain undamaged. Nonetheless, placing heavy objects on best of it might not be such a superb notion. Around the contrary, the bottom panel on the laptop doesn’t bring anything as well exciting – a few screws holding the cover, the battery is user-accessible and there is a massive grill at the bottom for an external cooling pad.
Going around the sides, we’re left with little to become preferred. The thin profile of just 23.five mm is seldom matched in this class as well as the weight – only two.2 kg. Regardless the thin profile, Toshiba Satellite L50-C involves each of the peripherals and pa3817u 1brs/toshiba battery pa3817u 1brs/pa3817u 1brs genuine/pa3817u 1brs original toshiba ports necessary – one USB two.0, LAN port and DC charging slot on the left and HDMI, 2x USB 3.0 and SD card reader around the ideal side. Also, the thin profile did not quit Toshiba to cram up an optical drive as well, but not every little thing is so superior because it appears. We have concerns about the port placement. The majority of connectivity alternatives are on the appropriate side (2x USB three.0 and HDMI), not to mention that those would be the most normally made use of ones. This limits the space and may get inside the asus ad890m26/asus ad890m26 charger/asus laptop charger ad890m26 way of using your external mouse. In addition, the principle grill for dispersing the heat is situated on the suitable side that could leave unpleasant experience, but we’ll make certain to verify that out within the “Temperatures” section.
Opening the lid reveals the same style signature as we saw outside. Edges around the machine are sharp with black challenging plastic strip housing the Skullcandy-branded loudspeakers and macbook air charger 45w energy button in the top. The rest on the interior, having said that, functions exactly the same glossy plastic that is employed around the lid. And here would be the two functions we liked essentially the most about this machine. Unusually for any machine at this cost variety, our complaints regarding the good quality on the keyboard and a1286 charger/macbook pro a1286 charger/a1286 macbook pro charger touchpad are somehow negligible. Buttons are significant sufficient, evenly spaced, comfortable, but give e relatively low crucial travel. It’s all about acquiring made use of to it. As for the touchpad, it includes a related design and style to other Satellite machines we’ve encounter, however the usability is far superior to other notebooks on the market. Even those with greater value tag. The touchpad is responsive, straightforward to use, precise devoid of any wobbling and asus ad883220/asus charger ad883220/asus ac adapter ad883220 the improved portion of the surface registers left click button. That is an important detail to think about for comfy and productive use. Nonetheless, the buttons are a bit tough to press in addition to a lighter touch would have been appreciated.
Our overall opinion around the style and building is extra than constructive. We’re happy with the look, thin profile and weight. The notebook just appears and asus ad891m21/asus ac adapter ad891m21/asus ad891m21 charger feels wonderful but smaller irregularities in the make high quality are present. The bezels about the screen creak when pressed tougher and the back from the lid bends a whole lot. Oppositely, the hinge style is just best – it is tight sufficient for secure usage and also you can very easily open the notebook with only one particular hand (devoid of holding the main body).
The Satellite comes using a glossy 15.6-inch display having a native resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. Brightness (284.9 cd/m2) and toshiba satellite l50 b 1nx battery/toshiba pa5186u 1brs battery the contrast (1131:1) in specific are pleasing. Regrettably, the show shows PWM flickering at 50 Hz when the brightness is 30% or reduced. This might result in headache or eye challenges in lots of users.
The Satellite’s display features a DeltaE-2000 colour deviation of five.07. This is not too far from lenovo g50 80 battery/original 41wh battery for lenovo g50 80 serie the target variety (DeltaE smaller sized than three). The display will not be bluish.
Toshiba has equipped the Satellite having a viewing-angle-stable IPS panel. Therefore, it is possible to read in the screen from each position. The a13 045n2a/acer a13 045n2a/acer ac adapter a13 045n2a/acer a13 045n2a charger show can certainly be made use of outdoors. Nevertheless, the glossy surface makes this challenging or even impossible in vibrant sunlight.
In use we identified the Toshiba Satellite L50D-C-12X a bit noisy, internal cooling fans hunting unique speeds when sat idle around the desk. Judge subjectively the laptop felt slow, with a1278 charger/macbook pro a1278 charger/macbook a1278 charger/a1278 macbook charger some frustrating moments of total lock-up, eg, installing software.
Processor benchmarks showed usable performance, so we’ll attribute these lags towards the slow storage, a two.5-inch SATA disk of 1 TB capacity. Geekbench scored the Satellite with surface pro 4 charger/microsoft surface pro 4 charger/surface pro 4 docking station 2095 points, and 4790 points working with all four cores.
A sub-2000 point score in PCMark 8 underlines laggardly all round efficiency, here 1891 points but increasing to 2490 points applying Radeon acceleration.
Gaming isn’t a given; you will have to maintain detail and expectations in check. Nonetheless Batman: Arkham City averaged 31 fps at screen resolution, albeit with hp spare 800049 001/hp battery 800049 001 Low detail. Drop to 720p and you may well see 34 fps.
Tomb Raider was smoother, 40 fps at former settings; 44 fps at latter.
The Toshiba Satellite L50-C-275 delivers adequate performance of everyday tasks and may run games smoothly. Most of the time, the computer operates quietly and it does not get as well warm. A fast SSD makes for a smooth and asus ad883220/asus charger ad883220/asus ac adapter ad883220 responsive program. The built-in keyboard is better than what exactly is necessary for household use. In addition, the battery runtimes are good. The IPS Complete HD display pleases with wide viewing angles and higher contrast. Its brightness is also decent. Unfortunately, the manufacturer makes use of a glossy display. It is actually unreasonable that Toshiba gives only a one-year warranty for the Satellite. This can be unacceptable in view of a value of 750 Euros (~$826).
