Toshiba Qosmio G30 / Qosmio G35 Review (pics, specs)


Today we take a look at Toshiba Canada's Qosmio G30 (specifically the PQG31C-HD202E ). The G30 closely resembles Toshiba USA's Qosmio G35-AV650 in specification so this review should give you an idea of that unit's performance. A major selling point of...

The G30 is a first gen HD notebook, and it is burdened with too many compromises to fully recommend it. The only person I could recommend this to in good conscience is someone with a fat wallet and who is prepared to live with the early adopter...

Toshiba Qosmio G30 (PQG32A-02V01W)


The Toshiba Qosmio is a well established entertainment notebook, and in many respects it stands smack bang in the middle of Toshiba and Sony's HD medi...

HD-DVD-R drive, High resolution screen, Media controls, HDMI output, Performance, Battery life

Heat escapes via the keyboard

This is already a very cool machine, with plenty of power and functionality. Now with the added HD-DVD-R drive it's even better.

Toshiba Qosmio G30-204 review


A well-featured machine, but starting to show its age

Good performance ; Comfortable to use ; Well built

Big and heavy

There's nothing wrong with its features, build or performance, but it shows its age next to smaller and lighter rivals

Toshiba Qosmio G30-102 review


Great performance and excellent usability

HD DVD drive ; Large memory and hard drive ; Well built and comfortable to use

Portability is virtually non-existant

It's certainly bulky, but that's hardly a surprise with all the multimedia treats the G30-102 comes with

Toshiba Qosmio G30


One of the main driving factors, in the development of PC products, with regards to the AV experience over the last couple of years, has been the emergence of HD. HD as most of our readers know is used to refer to the 720p and 1080p format, which...

For testing the performance of the G30, we have divided the tests into 3 parts. In our first part, we have put the laptop's battery through its paces with the help of Battery Cruncher Pro and standard use. In the second part, we have utilized 3dmark...

Toshiba Qosmio G30 (PQG32A-01N003)


Though it doesn't come cheap, the Toshiba Qosmio G30 is an excellent notebook that functions under a number of guises, suiting almost every room in th...

HD-DVD, CPU and graphics card, clear screen, Harmon Kardon speakers


As a notebook, media player or desktop replacement this machine will do a good job. If you're hoping to watch high definition media there are few other options. Although there's a hefty price tag, it only reflects the stacks of hardware put together in...
