Pros: Fast and as described. Best deal for the money. Upgraded to 16GB of DDR3 for only $50 more. It is quick considering the 5900 rpm HDD. Better off eventually upgrading to a 7200rpm or SSD for increased performance. At the current discount price it's a steal.
Cons: None so far but I have only had it for a week. Tested heavily and gamed heavily and pleasantly surprised. I will leave additional feedback if anything changes.
Overall Review: The negative reviews for this product are ridiculous. N/A claims to have a high tech knowledge rating when clearly from his comments and inability to fix his own issue tells me he's more of a user and should be closer to 2-3 tech knowledge. Reed's only issue was a faulty HDD which can happen sadly however the bloatware and lack of recovery disks is very common with proprietary/discounted units these days. Making a backup should be the first thing you do. You have a Windows key under your laptop. Download your version of windows and use your key. Trolls and those with OCD should not leave reviews nor lie about their knowledge it hurts consumers.
Pros: This thing can definately run any game currently on the market at atleast medium settings at 1280 x 720. Minecraft, Red Orchestra, Arma II, BF3 you name it. The Radeon 7670 sits between at Nvidia Gt 630m and 640m. The 17.3 inch screen if very nice and glossy, great for gaming use which is what is was bought for.
Cons: Batterly life is like an hour and a half at full charge when gaming but that's not uncommon.(i play plugged in anyways so not docking an egg)
Overall Review: Cousin had me buy this for him because he needed something to play on while be stationed in Missouri(Airforce). I also agree with Ben, don't listen to that N/A guy, he's not even a verified owner.
Pros: The laptop is very fast and I am impressed at its ability to run the games I've been wanting to play. It has a dedicated graphics card on it and it runs fantastic, just make sure you get a laptop cooling stand if you plan to use it for gaming.
I've played civ 5, dungeon defenders, dc universe, and dragon age with not even a hint of lag.
also a plus, I freaking love the mouse pad. Most laptops it's a smooth hard surface and my finger sticks and it's really annoying- this one as little grooves all through it making it so my finger just glides across. it is soooo awesome to have a mousepad like this.
Cons: The keyboard is a little spaced out making it awkward to type on, I'm hoping I will get used to it soon. At first the keys were hard to press but that is going away, it just needed to be broken in.
The power cord plugs into one side and the cooling vent is on the other side which is very annoying if you like to put the laptop down on it's side.
the bloatware is annoying but there's an option to say 'no more' after the initial adds literally pop up.
Overall Review: this laptop is awesome and I got it when it was on sale for $650, and it is well worth it.
Pros: Great Price
Cons: Screen Malfunctioned After Three Days
Overall Review: Picked up this laptop during the Black Friday sales and was very pleased with it until the screen image became distorted. I could move the screen slightly and the picture would improve leading me to think it was a bad connection to the screen itself. I sent it back to Newegg and they approved the RMA, however they just refunded the money. I really want the laptop replaced or repaired by Toshiba. I have sent an email to Newegg support and have yet to hear back. Hopefully I will hear back from them.
Pros: Very clean and fast laptop, i am more than impressed with Toshiba. They have fixed up a really nice laptop. This laptop will do everything to fill you're needs. I highly recommend this laptop to anyone looking for a nice laptop to leave around home.
Cons: The laptop is a little heavy, easily resolved with a laptop case. (no cons really)
Overall Review: All around great laptop for an amazing price. Buy it and you wont regret it, best laptop I've ever owned.
Pros: I have owned a lot of Toshiba products including notebooks, TVs, recording equipment and such. While I have not owned this paticular notebook I have owned an eailer 17 inch model. I just wanted to say that I have always found Toshiba products to be of a very high quality and value. The one gentleman that stated that Toshiba does do any warrenty work after what looked like a complete rebuild of his notebook is what I would call proof that they do indeed do warrenty work! Makes me wonder how he takes care of his notebook or at least what kind of environment he is using his notebook in.
Pros: This thing runs Black Ops 2 at 30fps. Not bad. It also has a separate key pad which is very convenient. The monitor is a good size. It didn't come with too much bloatware either.
Overall Review: This laptop is pretty long. It doesn't fit in a normal laptop bag. It fits in a laptop backpack though...just barely.
Pros: Gaming, speed and price
Cons: Faulty HDD with bad sectors (recovery missing files) broken fan.
Overall Review: Not bad for the price for 17in with a good graphics card but the fan and bad hard drive (issues I have seen on numerous forums for this model) makes me wish I researched it just a bit more.
