Some customer reviews of Toshiba Satellite U840W-107

Most helpful reviews

Eric, London Business user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A light and beautifully desgined laptop, with superb surround sound speakers (using Karman Kardon) and a good screen resolution. The U840W has excellent compatibility with a Toshiba smart enabled TV where you can 'mirror' your desktop on this laptop on the actual TV. Several USB 3.0 slots are a handy addition if you wish to import data at a much faster speed than version 2.0.
The only laptop with a Cinematic screen ratio of 21:9 instead of the usual 16:9, meaning you can use a split screen for working with more than one application at the same time.
Toshiba provide their own brand software to maintain the performance of this product, and a scaled down version of Office 2010 to get you started.
A backlit keyboard is also present.
Bad points:
The Cinematic screen is not always useful for video content that is predominantly reproduced on a 16:9 ratio.
The keyboard buttons are a little too close together compared to other laptops as the speakers on either side of it cause that to be the case.
The laptop case will be difficult to find for this product although there is a synthetic sleeve supplied out of the box.
