Toshiba Satellite A665-3DV5 3D Gaming Laptop Review

The Toshiba Satellite A665-3DV 3D gaming laptop gives any user a jumpstart into the world of 3D with NVIDIA built-in vision technology, an Intel Core i5 processor and more for $1,050. Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey take a look at the 3D tech, glasses and more!

What You Need to Know

  • As 3D gaming laptops go, this one is pretty sleek
  • It’s about 1.5” thick and weighs just over 6 lbs.
  • In addition to playing games, it's a productivity laptop, too
  • The touch-pad is multi-touch, so you can pinch, zoom, and rotate, though it's still not as seamless as Apple's trackpads
  • The keyboard takes a little getting used to since the keys give a little too easily
  • We are excited that it's backlit, though this is something every laptop should have
  • One thing we noticed is that your wrist rests right over the touch-pad when you're gaming, but there's a button that will turn the touch-pad off so you won't accidentally move the mouse
  • Overall, it was a pleasure to game on for long periods of time
  • Our 3DMark Vantage benchmarks yielded a very respectable score for a laptop this affordable
  • It shouldn't have a problem playing any game out right now, even in 3D, but you won't be able to max out the settings completely
  • The 3D transmitter is also built in to the laptop, so all you need is the glasses and you're ready to go
  • It even plays 3D blu-rays 


Overall Rating

  • 4 Seals of Approval Out of 5 (How do we rate gadgets?)
  • This is the most affordable 3D gaming laptop we've ever reviewed; it's not quite as fast as we'd want a gaming laptop to be, but it's still a great choice

    meh, 3D hardware that requires glasses will be out of date in maybe 1 or 2 years, and will not be worth anything....
