Review Toshiba Qosmio F60 Notebook

 

Qosmio's newest family addition. The first look at the 15.6 inch

BluRay burner; Attractive design in red-black; Loudspeakers (Harman/Kardon); HDMI port; TV tuner (Qosmio F60-10L)

Some weaknesses in the case; High operating temperature under load; Fan always present

There would be e.g. the Samsung NP-R580-JS03DE as a strong opponent in the 15.6 inch category, but without a BluRay drive. The Medion P6622 could also be an alternative.

Toshiba Qosmio F60 (PQF65A-00Y002) gaming notebook

 

A fully featured Toshiba notebook with mid-range gaming credentials

Blu-ray, HDMI, good mid-range gaming capability, suitable for video encoding and editing, comfortable keyboard, USB Sleep-and-Charge

Screen too glossy, slow hard drive, shortcut buttons didn't work well

Toshiba's Qosmio F60 looks good, feels good to use and it delivers plenty of performance at a good price. It's not for people who demand the best eye candy when playing a game, but instead for gamers who don't mind sacrificing a bit of image quality...

Toshiba's Qosmio notebooks have gone through many design phases in their short history: from the first HD DVD–equipped Qosmio G30, which cost $5500 and looked like a home theatre component, to the gaming-oriented Qosmio X300, which cost $3400 and...
