5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This thing has been a tank, works well for just about everything I throw at it, had a few issues with the video card but updated drivers from the Nvidia fixed it and I have been happy ever since. Has a nice big screen that, even after over a year of use, has not started to show the keyboard marking across the screen the many laptops do.

Cons: Heavy, but what do you expect for something this big.

Other Thoughts: To do it again I would go with the i7 version and a solid state drive for the boot drive, but for the cost it has been my best laptop to date.

5 out of 5 eggsMe again, back with more good news!

Pros: Still rockin' hard even a year after purchase. Plays games very well even today.

Overclocked the GPU further still, now at 750/1500/3200.

I'm on this machine daily and it's fast. There's no way to get around that. First generation i5 CPUs are just fast. I rock Crysis on High at the native resolution with a steady 45 fps on a regular basis. AvP runs at Highest settings, no AA, @ 45-50 fps.

I still recommend people to get the X505 if they can. Amazing laptop even today.

Cons: Still gets warm, but laptops are expected to. The lack of a 1080p screen isn't that big of a deal since I didn't get a Bluray player either.

The CPU fan "rattles" to this day, however after a year nothing has gone wrong. I'm told by other users that it's nothing to be worried about and Toshiba even replaced the fan and it happened with the new one. So it's the fan itself that's the problem. Oh well...

Other Thoughts: The NZXT Cryo doesn't work with this laptop and it's just a hassle to deal with.

The Cooler Master U3 works a lot better, since it actually fits. :P

5 out of 5 eggs6 months later, still rockin' like new!

Pros: Still performs to my expectations in every game I own. The extra Vram is beautiful for most games that use this resolution. I can't complain. Battery life, with Eco mode on, is right at 4 hours. Mind you this is with the stock 8-cell battery and Toshiba sells a 12-cell battery to upgrade this laptop with. So, I'd expect a good five and a half to six hours with the higher capacity battery, to which I'll be getting soon.

Cons: Heat is the only issue I can see, potentially, as the CPU gets up to around 85*C under full load.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this machine is beautiful. I love it more than my desktop even. The huge screen is just amazing, the GPU and CPU combo is perfect for games, it can hold two harddrives, etc. There's not much to complain about here.

The only thing I wish it had was one of the newer Sandy Bridge CPUs. Obviously for it's time of purchase, back in December, it was perfect for the time. It still is, but I kinda wanted to see what one of the newer CPUs will do.

9.5/10 overall. The weight is the only disadvantage here. But I can't complain about that. I wanted a DTR laptop and I got what I wanted. :D

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Great specs, very large screen, quiet, nice color scheme, essentially a portable desktop.

Cons: Hard to carry and find 18+ inch carrying bags, bulky power brick.

Other Thoughts: This is my first PC (Mac owner all my life) and I think I will be staying with PC's.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat gaming laptop, great price

Pros: screen size
plays high end games better than my desktop

using on lap and doesn't get hot, the heat output gets directed backwards. if you use on a blanket or something that blocks the outflow, it points up in front of the LCD screen instead. basically this means no down clocking of the GPU and CPUs

When researching gaming laptops, I was on a tight budget. Alienware and XPS laptops are much higher priced; and for the performance you get from the QOSMIO, I couldn't pass it up. can play Mafia 2 on high settings/high physx fairly well, this says alot, at least for the current video cards out there.

Cons: The thing that worries me the most is the power connector, it's not flimsy, just a short connector. i can fore-see this wearing out in the future, coming unplugged alot, especially when using on lap. Toshiba needs to use a connector like Dell's, problem solved.

there have been times it's come loose already and have to push it in all the way.

as far as ergonomics, as others have reported, are non existent. the only thing they did right is the touchpad, which I never use anyway.

Video drivers. as others have mentioned, Toshiba is slow on releasing new drivers. Luckily, I haven't needed to upgrade.

Other Thoughts: i gave this 5 stars because you simply CAN NOT beat the price for performance on this thing. it plays current games well and thus far has given me no major problems. i was never a fan of Toshiba laptops in the past but this one has changed my mind.

keep in mind, gaming performance comes with a price when it comes to power consumption. the AC power brick is huge and can max out at 7amps (according to the power cord). the ecoboost utility helps greatly with this. i mention this for the sake of running on battery power.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Laptop

Pros: Great Laptop! Built really well unlike Acer's and has some cool features I didn't know about. For example it has the ability to power 1 usb plug even when off which allows you to charge your mp3 player or other device while it is off. The vid card is really good which is the reason why I got this model.

Average 90 fps in TF2 on high settings. X3:TC benchmark gets around 65 fps on high settings which is really good for a laptop.

Cons: 2 little things that annoyed me enough to give it only 4 eggs. 1: The capacitive touch buttons can get in the way if you have big fingers like me. 2: The fact that it had 71 processes on 1st boot. I was able to get it down to 43 which is much much better.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this laptop to any gamer who wants a laptop to game on the road.

Pros: 18.4 inch screen

Core I5 CPU

4GB Ram

7200 RPM Hard Drive

GeForce GTX 460M Graphics card

64-bit OS

Gigabit LAN

eSata Port

Wireless N

harman/kardon audio


Cons: I had to buy it site unseen with no way to return it if I didn't like it.

I would like 2 more USB Ports

I can't pronounce the name

It's hard to figure out which Toshiba programs you can uninstall and which you need to keep

Other Thoughts: This thing is a beast.

It'll take any request and just chew it up and spit out the answer.

It rates a 5.9 on the Windows Experience Index and only because the hard drive and the ram are the slow links. The next slowest part is the CPU at 6.9 and the graphics are both 7.1.

It is big and would be a problem for a frequent traveler, but if you just set it up on a hotel table once in a while, it's your home away from home.

I could use it as my main computer and I run multiple virtual machines using VMWare, do 3D Computer Aided Design and occasionally play some Call of Duty.

This is the only laptop I've ever seen that will do all 3 without compromise.

A decent laptop will cost you 6 or 7 hundred bucks, so for 4 or 5 hundred more, you get an 18.4 inch screen and a computer that will handle anything you may ever want to do just like a fancy desktop.

I bought this for a customer and I absolutely love it and will miss it when it's gone.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Desktop Replacement

Pros: Fast processor and GPU. Can handle Starcraft II on Ultra without hiccups. Speakers sounds nice. It has enough bass specially for it's size. I'm loving the windows 7 experience. The red and black color scheme is awesome!

Cons: a little on the heavy side. but for it's size, I can't really complain. I wish the lighted keyboard is standard. other than that i can't really think much of any cons for it...

3 out of 5 eggsScreen Washed Out/Keys Fingerprint Magnent

Pros: This thing is awesome for the price. The web cam is not the best but will work fine on Skype or any video conferencing. Fast is an understatement. Ease of use is great. Love the full number pad. I'm a big gammer. At 28 it takes a lot to impress me BUT i was impressed. Starcraft 2/Left 4 Dead/COD/Battlefield 2. ALL on ULTRA HIGH settings and no glitches. Not to much bloatware. Maybe 5 programs. Im a dj so speed is important. Runs Virtual DJ with NO problems.

Cons: Just a few to mention.

Fingerprint Magnent-Not only the computer BUT the keys too. They are high gloss and can get ugly after only playing for a couple munites. Also the $'s and letters are grey. This models keyboard is not back lit causing strain in dark rooms.

Media keys on the left side of keyboard are anoying and can be accidentally pressed by your left pinkie. Trust me youll want to deactivate them. YOU can do this and its VERY easy in Hardware Manager. Trust me youll need to remember that.

MY MAJOR ISSUE: The resolution isnt the best but it works. The issue is how washed out this screen looks. I have it sitting next to an Asus G2 series i bought 3 years ago and the asus is far better/crisper/brighter/clearer and no glare. This is something im kind of agrivated about. At $1200 the screen should be much better than this. Beware: Its not a beautiful display.

Other Thoughts: All and all i think its an ok purchase. Based on the Screen i would probably pass on the oppertunity to buy again. Lets put it this way "My daughters Leapster with a 3 inch screen has beter color settings. Its really sad guys."

4 out of 5 eggsOne big Laptop

Pros: Dedicated video card
Nice Size Screen
Looks good
Good price for the performance.

Cons: Big and Heavy
It's a fingerprint magnet, but what shiny laptop isnt
Only came with 4 gigs of memory vs the 8 it's capable of
Bloatware that needs uninstalled
AC adapter is as big as a brick

Other Thoughts: If you are thinking of this as a portable machine think's more along the lines of a semi-portable desktop. So far it's been running fine with the exception of a HDD protection program that decided to say it detected movement of the HDD when the thing was sitting on a table and dropped me to desktop in the middle of a game. I haven't had time to look into that issue yet. Overall at this point I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a machine that you just move around the house some.
