The noise levels are to be seen somewhat more differentiated: But if high performance of the laptop is demanded for a longer time, the fan causes a clearly audible, high frequency noise, which gets on your nerves expecially when watching DVD. When closing the notebook, the hinges crack loudly. Maintaining the Formula Bearing many similarities with its predecessors in terms of build, styling and user ergonomics, the Joybok S53W is BenQ’s latest attempt in crafting a notebook that boasts a fresh identity. The Centrino-laptop is very interesting due to its small size and the small weight. This works fine for me with 3 different beamers all max. Before Notebookcheck was founded, I worked as a developer of bookkeeping software.

The loudspeakers at the front of the Benq S53W are hopelessly under-sized with 2×1.

Left speaker, Infrared, WiFi switch, earphone jack, microphone jack, 5-in-1 memory card reader and right speaker. Anyway, the value for office operation is only an approximation. Before Notebookcheck was founded, I worked as a developer of bookkeeping software.

If you would like to watch DVDs on journeys with the S53W, headphones should be used instead of the beqn loudspeakers. The fan blows warm air out of the left side of the case, which is optimal for righthanded people like me.

That works very well, despite the relatively small surface of the touchpad. The keys are of normal size, not as with most subnotebooks.

I have not updated the drivers since the purchase, but meanwhile some programs are installed, which I did not want to de-install only for s3w tests When closing the notebook, the hinges crack loudly.


Many special characters and additional x53w, which can be s53 at an office keyboard, are also available on the BenQ, so that the appropriate indications or functions do not have to be called cumbersomely via the function keys. Many thanks to “Schutzi” bemq providing us with this nice review!

The somewhat silvery screen cover consists of a magnesium alloy and is very rigid. The WLAN switch at the front is flush with the chassis, so that it cannot be activated by mistake, and shows a light according to the corresponding condition, which is activated by the Fn-key blue: The good general impression is completed by a solid workmanship and useful software-additions burning program, music-player, imageviewer etc. That reduces noise too. However, during direct sun exposure in the garden, all brightness offered by the display is necessary in order to counterbalance the reflections.

All tests are based on a fully charged battery approx. Intel Pentium M processor 1.

The workmanship of the BenQ S53W leaves a good impression. Quality journalism is made possible by advertising. Another design highlight brought over to the succeeding Joybook S53W is the latch-less design where the LCD can be easily flipped up.

Unfortunately the running time during DVD playback is not sufficient for long films, but normal for such a compact laptop.

Benqq this only might affect the PCMark and even there not by much. Thus the color reproduction is very brilliantly, but the display shows some mirroring. The only area that gets really warm is to the left of the touchpad where the hard disk is located. The interface equipment of the S53W is rather complete with Firewire, cardreader, WLAN, Bluetooth caution, my laptop had this, but it’s not officially on the datasheet; confirm that before the purchase!

The touchpad is quite precise and in the driver allows to set zones for vertical and horizontal scrolling.

In the office operation the laptop works well off the power plug socket for three hours, without WLAN even about minutes more, but I did not measure that. The quick keys for starting the mail and internet program are also very useful W53w closed rooms even level 5 or 6 AC 5s3w supply is sufficient, even the lowest level still allows working without eye pains. Fortunately there is the good sounding headphone jack of a good quality and there is the opportunity for the digital connection of a 5.

In addition the preset “DVD” – energy scheme should be changed here for the sake of run time and for the ears. Bena is unlike many other modern business notebooks where you still have a hassle of sliding a lever or pushing a button before flipping up the screen.
