4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I've owned Toshiba laptops for over 10 years. This laptop has recently started giving me a problem with starting up after closing the lid down for the night. I've kept this one more simple with as few installed software as I needed. So I am in the process of eliminating settings to find out why the laptop will not start back up when I open the lid the next day. I had the Toshiba setting to "Sleep" when I closed the lid and now I've changed that to "shut down". Also I have "Team Viewer" installed to access from my Tablet from a different location. That software is free. I turned OFF the setting to start "Team Viewer" when the laptop starts back up after the lid is closed. Otherwise, I am very pleased with the performance, quality and looks of this laptop.

Toshiba builds excellant laptops.
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The downside is Windows 8. This laptop without a touch screen is not made for windows 8. Would have paid the additional money for Windows 7 Pro. The only use for this laptop with Windows 8 is to use it for a boat anchor.

4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

My second TOSHIBA laptop is even better than my first, which my son still uses ten years later. In the meantime I've had two others, HP, and dell xps (xtream piece of stuff). I love my QOSMIO, always wanted one and I am not disappointed. Windows 8 is terrible and the cause of many problems too numerous to mention.

Disappointment
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Performance is less than advertised, computer froze upon delivery while trying to update BIOS, multiple problems with Windows 8 (computer delivered with software from last year), USB drivers not available, recognizes 6 of 12GB memory, slowing performance

Nice for the price
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Hate Windows 8 and keyboard does not fit into the laptop very well. Aside from these things it flies and will handle whatever you throw at it.

A Beast at Gaming
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This laptop runs the top high-end PC games. Battlefield 3 run on ultra setting and the PC runs cool! The battery goes down a little bit faster when playing a game.

Good value for money for the specs offered.
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I'll try to make it easy listing out the pros and cons. Pros : 1. Incredibly fast performance as the specs suggests. It seems like nothing can slow this machine down. 2. Good audio output from the quad speakers. 3. Good build quality, laptop feels quite rugged. 4. Very responsive multi-touch pad. 5. Nice design. Cons : 1. Laptop is quite heavy so it’s strenuous to carry around. After all it is a big 17” 2. Mediocre battery backup. About 2 hours for mixed use (media/browsing). 3. Screen resolution could have been FULL HD. 16:9 is OK but not great. 4. I feel the keyboard could have been better. I like the backlit but the keys themselves are not very comfortable. 5. This maybe a individual concern but this laptop has no BluRay DVD player. I am fine with it since I very rarely use BluRay discs. Overall this is a great laptop and a good value for money. When you use the laptop the sheer performance wafts you over the cons so that should not be a big issue. I have been using this for a couple of months now and I love it! Definitely worthy.

OK, not great
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Generally, a good machine. Difficult to see the screen clearly from "off" angles or to see the full screen face on. "Mouse" pad is super sensitive, activating even if I have not touched the pad (just the heat of my hand?).

SO worth the money!!!
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This laptop is a beast. Granted, I am no heavy gamer, but everything I throw @ my Q7380; it just takes it and laughs @ me. I am so glad I bought this Qosmio over the Asus, or the Dell Alienware. If I had to do it all over. I would make this purchase again, Toshiba really made a winner with this Qosmio!!!

Great but not excellent...
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This laptop was great! The sound,graphics card,and screen all exceeded my expectations! Well really the computer in whole did. I've seen some people whining about battery life but I have to say this isn't a problem really. Given what this laptop can do. That being said I'd rate it a 8/10 only because of when I opened it and took it out of the box the border around the keys was sticking up. I had to push it in myself. Also the optical drive was faulty(spinning up on its own ever few mins.)so I sent it back to the store for replacement.(not paying this type of money just to have to have a repair job done.) Two other things of note. 1. This laptop does get hot while playing games. Didn't matter if it was an hour or of it was 4 hours. It heats up fast. 2.Win.8...really I'm not a fan however it doesn't slow this one down any! Few hours playing around with it and I felt like a pro. I really see no need to downgrade to 7. All in all I love this laptop.

Just the computer I needed
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I work quite heavily with Adobe CS6 programs and the power of the computer and NVidia video card are a necessity. I run an extra 23 inch monitor to help spread out my work flow with no problems - more of a desktop than a laptop so the low life of the battery isn't really an issue unless the power goes out

Great specs great price
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This laptop is super fast, the screen is big, the graphics are awesome. I wish there was a way to personalize it though as the only option is red and black. I also wished it came with Windows 7 as Windows 8 has its quirks but that has nothing to do with the laptop itself. Got this to play all my Sims 3 games and I am thrilled at how this laptop handles it all. I am a loyal Toshiba fan as I had a satellite series for about 4 years and never had any issues and this purchase did not disappoint in any way. If you're looking for a system with these specs under any other brand you WILL be paying ALOT. The battery doesn't last long but I keep mine plugged in most of the time so it doesn't bother me too much. I nicknamed my laptop Dream as it is the laptop I always dreamed about :)

Best one I've had.
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I bought this laptop for my college classes, and for gaming. I have had this computer for a month and a year, and I love it. It is a beast of a work horse, and can take the toughest jobs. And I love the backlit keys. But of games like Just Cause 2 and Skyrim I have to have the computer plugged in or else it laggs a bit. Which is fine by me, I dont mind having to plug up, but it does get annoying. One other thing That could have been better it its battery life, its pretty short. Overall though this is a very good computer for either the workaholics, or the gamer on the go. I still wish I could turn off the backlight name on the back of the computer.

Great laptop, terrible OS GUI
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This is a GREAT laptop and, so far, it handled beautifully I everything I threw at it! On the minus side: - the wireless chipset (Intel Centrino Wireless N2230) can't connect to 5Ghz networks; this is a HUGE let-down on a higher-end laptop like this one. - Windows 8: the GUI is not only dreadful (Fisher-Price inspired square tiles, much?, no possibility to change the retina-searing white windows background), it is also completely impractical if don't you use it with a touch-enabled device. There are workarounds, but expect to spend some time tweaking it before you can recreate an interface that allows productivity type work. This being said, once you managed to whip its GUI into submission, Windows 8 is really fast and runs pretty smoothly. - I'm personally not fond at all of the flashy red accents and I'd much rather have silver/white tones. (I fully realize that this one is a matter of taste, a really minor issue, and I can live just fine with the red.)

Customized mine
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Keep reading reviews about wanting to load win7...suggest full install, drive swap, need to change bios to CSM from UEFI to load from install disk. There are drivers for win7 64 bit on Tosh european site to download for this. I swapped out to SSD, loaded win7 ultimate on mine. Trick to BIOS is to hold down F2 when you hit power button, then hold down F12 to go into BIOS. Great machine for all other reasons but batttery only about 2 hours is not good for me. Love it otherwise now that I have win7.

Amazing laptop, not so amazing OS!
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The X875 Q7380 is my dream laptop, it has everything I had ever hoped to have in a laptop - Insane RAM, a fast processor, incredible graphic card, large 17" screen and it was $100 cheaper too! But the only downside is that I wish it wasn't $100 cheaper, just so that it could have come with Windows 7 because that's what I had seen it with first. Windows 8 is terrible (in my opinion) and I wish there were a way for me to install Windows 7 on my laptop.
