Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q850

CNET
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Toshiba revives its Qosmio gaming line with the high-end X505. It has everything from Blu-ray to an Intel Core i7 CPU, but it also carries a premium price.
  • Pros: Top-of-the-line components, including Intel Core i7; second solid-state hard drive; massive 18-inch 1080p display.
  • Cons: Expensive; tiny touch pad; surprisingly cramped keyboard; mute button beeps loudly when pressed.

Review Toshiba Qosmio X500-10V Notebook

Notebookcheck
20 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Toshiba has done a good to very good job with the Qosmio X500. Starting with the case that could only be a bit more stable in some parts and attracts attention with fingerprints within a short time. In return, it has been manufactured very well and is impressive with a chic and elegant design, including a keyboard light . Leading to the 18.4 inch display that reflects intensely on the one side and could use a bit more luminosity (148.4 cd/m 2 ) on the other.
  • Pros: Chic and elegant case, Vast connectivity, Wrist-rest is always cool, Strong application performance due to Core i7, Over averagely good sound, Adequate battery life under low load, The sound is very impressive for a notebook. The glossy black case looks elegant and vivacious at the same time due to the fine texture and red accents.
  • Cons: GeForce GTS 250 is considerably slower than GeForce GTX 260M, Smudge sensitive surfaces, Keyboard yields easily, Average display brightness, A better gaming performance. The GeForce GTS 250M with a GDDR5 VRAM is about 18% faster than with a GDDR3 VRAM but doesn't even come close to high-end graphic cards like the GeForce GTX 260M.

Toshiba Qosmio X500 Gaming Notebook

Tech2
14 October 2010
  • Summary: The Qosmio X500 is priced at Rs.1,00,990, which is about 25K less than the Asus G74SX. But, where it lacks in a superior graphics card and 3DVision capabilities, it makes up for that with the larger screen, better speakers and a lower price. There are some minor niggles like the average build quality, annoying shortcut buttons that get in the way and the outdated graphics card, which makes this price tag seem rather high.

Review Toshiba Qosmio X500 Notebook (GeForce GTX 460M)

Notebookcheck
26 September 2010
  • Summary: Back in Game. The Qosmio X500 was supposed to be the flagship gamer from Toshiba. It couldn't really live up to its predetermination with the midrange graphics in the previous models. Now everything is to be different with Nvidia's brand new GTX 460M graphics card.
  • Pros: Good loudspeakers, Blu-Ray burner, Lavish connectivity, Fast graphics card, Good application performance, Fan dissipates towards the rear, The performance increase from midrange level to high-end due to Geforce GTX 460M graphics from Nvidia.
  • Cons: Sensitive high-gloss surfaces, Dark and reflective display, Very warm under load

Review Toshiba Qosmio X500-121 Notebook

Notebookcheck
1 July 2010
  • Summary: Let the games begin. The X500, an 18.4-inch desktop replacement, has already found its way into our editorial office before the review even began. Toshiba recently updated the graphics card, insisting on scrapping the planned GeForce GTS 250M and including a GeForce GTS 360M as standard, which we naturally put through its paces.
  • Pros: Excellent performance in applications, Good gaming performance, Great sound quality, Blu-Ray burner, Prolific connectivity, The Core i7-720QM together with the GeForce GTS 360M ensure that games and applications run at their peak.
  • Cons: Sensitive high-gloss surfaces, Very warm under stress, Disappointing display (contrast, black value and viewing angle), The high-gloss chassis surfaces are very sensitive, quickly smudged and easily dirtied.

Toshiba Qosmio X500-116 notebook review

Pocket Lint
17 May 2010
  • Conclusion: You won't want to lug this laptop around too much (at 4.6kg), but you may be happy to have it on display somewhere prominent, thanks to its stylish design. Though whether that's on your desk or somewhere suitable for watching Blu-rays is up to you. It's a powerful, expensive computer and very impressive, too.
  • Pros: Great looks, powerful specs and impressive high-resolution screen
  • Cons: Too heavy for real portability and there are cheaper laptops that do almost as much
