Summary: There was a few problems with using the unit in 3d response...called Toshiba and setup a one year warranty..they corrected the problem....the unit works fine now and using cybelink14 for the 3d response.
Summary: I've had one of these for about seven months now and let me tell you, it runs like a charm. I love just about everything about it- it's a very reliable computer, it has a high resolution, it has great sound quality and a good internal mic, it has plenty of ram... But my one big issue with it is that when you play video games? It gets hot. REALLY hot.
Summary: I can't say how well it works gaming wise because I'm not a gamer. But the 3D is great! Google Earth won't work with factory installed Nvidia Graphics so I updated my Nvidia graphics to 314.22 updating to any Nvidia graphics driver newer than 314.22 will cause display issues, so stick with 314.22 I also swapped out my wireless adapter (intel Centrino 2230 with Intel Centrino Advanced 6235 dual band.
Pros: Awsome 3d, fast boot up
Cons: 24ghz Single Band Adapt, Nvidia Driver Past 31422
Summary: It includes 16GB DDR3 (it was a bit confusing to me as in the Product Description from Amazon you can read "12 GB of installed DDR3 RAM", but happily the right specification is 16 GB). I like the glowing letters in the back, and the fast 4 USB 3 ports. I love the Nvidia 3d feature, I can play my games and watch my blu ray movies in 3D.
Summary: I plan on keeping this computer but after installing the Nvidia programs 2x I started having trouble, the system would have a blank screen, the driver for the palm control and mouse would act up-system had message on screen that it was trying to recover it. After installing it the 1st time I had to reload the system like it came from the factory and it worked great until I reinstalled the Nvidia programs.
Summary: I bought this computer because I wanted a 17" with 3D capability and blu-ray viewing. To me it seemed like Toshiba has some of the strongest processor specs for a good price. I like to keep a laptop for 4 - 5 years so I did not want some underpowered processor which becomes obselete quickly. I looked at Dell and HP and settled on this unit. The first unit I bought directly from Toshiba. This one was defective because the 3D did not function properly.
Summary: This is a great laptop and so far I am very impressed. I wish the battery lasted longer so I can be more mobile, and less reliant on a plug-in. The design is sleek, and impressive and the processor speeds are super fast.
Pros: Easy to use, Fast, Well Designed
Cons: 3d Vision Is Complicating, Battery Lasts 25 Hrs
Summary: When I purchased this item, it was advertised as a 3.4 Ghz CPU. However, when I got it and looked into it, it was a 2.4 Ghz Cpu. Everything else was satisfactory as far as I could tell. When I contacted the company I bought it from through Amazon, they were very cooperative and gave me the option of keeping the computer and they offered to refund an amount off the purchase price to equal the next computer down that also had a 2.4 processr.
