Follow up review - Targus Black 17" XL Notebook Backpack Model TXL617

Bob L., Newegg
9 April 2015
  • Summary: When I am traveling - the backpack is loaded. The handle would be a deal breaker for me going forward. If you never have to use the New style handle - great backpack.
  • Pros: Great overall backpack for computers and traveling
  • Cons: One thing I did not notice in my first review - the rubber carrying handle on top of the backpack. It has changed from the previous version of this backpack. The previous versions had a rubber handle that was maybe 1" in diameter - comfortable to hold and carry heavy loads. The NEW handle is half...

Disappointing wear

DennisA, Office Depot

  • Excerpt: I like the compartments and storage. Unfortunately, the seams for the laptop compartment are tearing apart after less than one year. I will replace with a Swiss Gear model now.
  • Pros: Value for Money, Features, Easy to Use, Design
  • Cons: Build Quality

Similar look but not as sturdy

Otto, B&H Photo
15 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I purchased the same backpack about 5 years ago. This new one has the same exact color and has almost all the same features, except in quality. I could tell as soon as I touched it that the material was a cheaper quality. Targus cut manufacturing costs and now uses a less sturdy material.
  • Pros: Roomy
  • Cons: Low quality material

Starts great.....

Justin I., Newegg
30 December 2011
  • Summary: Over all not horrible if you are only going to use it a little bit, does not stand up to every day use to heavy duty laptops like the Asus or Alienwares
  • Pros: has a lot of compartments to keep things seperated. It is also a really light weight bag so if you are like me and have a 15 pound laptop its nice to start light.
  • Cons: Way to cheeply made. I bought my bag in aug 2008 and as of the end of 2009 it was starting to fall apart. The seams where the dividers meets the edges of the zippers is cheeply done and it soon frays and opens up so the top of all the compartments are open. Also as it frays the tops of it jams th...

Perfect fit for 17" Widescreen Laptop

SDTechDeals, PriceGrabber
5 November 2005
  • Summary: I recently upgraded from a 15" laptop to a 17" widescreen, so my excellent Targus TSB312 (see my other review) would no longer fit. Belive it or not, I considered not buying this laptop, as I knew I would have to give up that bag!!
  • Pros: Fits widescreen 17" laptops; plenty of storage compartments
  • Cons: "Smells" out of the box!; Material not as sturdy as other bags; Too Big!

Targus XL Notebook Rucksack

Marei Weichelt-Heber, Amazon
30 November 2012
  • Summary: Materialermüdung (Nähte) nach kurzer Tragezeit ist zu beanstanden. Für den Preis nicht erfreuhlich. Ansonsten guter Tragekomfort. Gute Handhabung. Robuste Reißverschlüsse.

Problème de bretelles

Cadmus, Amazon
7 September 2009
  • Summary: Si vous l'utilisez souvent, vous risquez d'avoir les deux problèmes que j'ai rencontrés; la couture de la bretelle (droite dans mon cas) se rompt à la couture, et j'ai eu une attache plastique a cassé ce qui est gênant en déplacement fréquent.
