Conclusion: Ultimately, the Qosmio X775-Q7272 offers much for performance minded users . With its 2.1 speaker system and high-end CPU and GPU combo , it’s capable of handling nearly anything content-hungry users want to throw at it, whether you’re doing video editing or gaming. In addition, the 17.3-inch display and included Blu-Ray drive provide extra incentives for frequent media viewers. Average display performance and battery life is a slight downside, though.
Pros: Phenomenal performance, Large screen, Blu-Ray, Great gaming performance and a Blu-Ray drive.
Cons: Poor battery life, Average screen performance, Pop-up ads & bloatware, Decent battery life when we're on the go.
Summary: The Qosmio X775-Q7170 disappoints as a gaming machine/desktop replacement, and it's too big to function well for any other purpose. Thanks to the extra-large battery that protrudes from the bottom of the laptop, the machine does get decent battery life for its category (about 4 hours, 30 minutes in our tests), but that means little when you're lugging around an 8-pound machine.
Conclusion: The Toshiba Qosmio line has always been kind of an anomaly in the marketplace. These notebooks were the biggest of the big, and plenty powerful to boot. With the X775 Toshiba has reevaluated some of their design points and the result is a leaner, meaner gaming machine. The Qosmio has gone from being a gloss-infested blinged-out curiosity into a real competitor, its price having dropped as much as its weight.
Summary: The X775-3DV78 provides strong graphics performance and booming sound. Its 3D functionality is also top-notch, although you'll have to sacrifice frame rates for the extra depth in your gameplay. Our biggest issue with the X775 is its design. We just don't find it attractive. But if you dig the Qosmio's look, then you won't be disappointed with this multimedia powerhouse.
Pros: harmankardon speakers and subwoofer pump out incredible sound, 3D display offers excellent images, Powerful GPU
