Video and Audio
The Satellite P205-S6287 comes with a 17.0″ widescreen XGA+ display set at 1440×900.
The screen is well suited for watching DVD’s and general computing.
The audio system is highlighted by the harman/kardon stereo speakers. The placement of the speakers on the face of the notebook above the keyboard is visually appealing and the sound is great.
Using a volume wheel rather than up/down keyboard buttons is a nice feature. Usually the buttons are preset to raise or lower the volume in increments and the wheel allows for more precise control. It’s conveniently placed in the front of the notebook just below the touchpad, next to the microphone/headphone jacks. The wheel did feel a little loose to the point where it felt like it was free spinning and could use more resistance.
