Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q890 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
15 July 2010
  • Summary: With the Qosmio X505-Q890, Toshiba has really upped the ante on what was already an industry leading gaming notebook. That said, competitors have also stepped up their game in this price and size range. If you're looking for something a little more portable (relatively speaking), the 17-inch ASUS G73JH ($1,599; $1,699 with Blu-ray) pairs dual 7,200-rpm drives with a slightly slower 1.6-GHz Intel Core i7-720QM CPU, but a slightly faster ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870...

10 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The Toshiba Qosmio X505 is among the largest notebooks at 18.4” and 9.7 lbs., and the CPU and graphics updates make it a powerful everyday desktop replacement and a darned good gaming machine. The Core i5 is cheaper with only the DVD drive option, but the video and gaming performance is quite good relative to the more expensive Core i7 models.
  • Pros: Gaming and video performance is great. The harman/kardon and Dolby Home Theater combination produces one of the best audio experiences on a notebook., Pro: Gaming and video performance is great. The harman/kardon and Dolby Home Theater combination produces one of the best audio experiences on a notebook.
  • Cons: Keyboard is a bit too flat. HD 1920 x 1080 display is a very pricey upgrade, viewing angle poor on lower res display., Con: Keyboard is a bit too flat. Upgrading to an HD 1080 display costs big bucks and the lower res display has poor viewing angles.

Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q896 Laptop Review

Audio Video Revolution
31 December 2009
  • Excerpt: I've always felt that Home Theater PCs have long been ignored as a viable alternative to physical media players in the home entertainment space, mostly because taking that next step into streaming or storing all your media in a central location seems very daunting to the average consumer; both from a technical and time consuming standpoint.  It's very refreshing to see the barrage of media player / HTPC hybrids that are taking the home theater by storm as of late.

Toshiba Qosmio X505 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
5 October 2009
  • Summary: At $1,899, the Toshiba Qosmio X505 isn't exactly cheap, but it's a bargain compared to more expensive systems like the Alienware M17x and ASUS W90 , especially considering that neither of those systems come standard with a fast solid state drive. While some slightly less expensive systems like the Gateway P-7808u FX and MSI GT725 provide slightly higher frame rates in some games, the Qosmio X505's outstanding overall performance, blazing fast SSD, stylish chassis, and...

  • Cons: Pesado., Não tem USB 3.0., Teclado em Inglês.
