Review Toshiba Qosmio X500-10V Notebook

 

Big Gamer with Multimedia Ambitions. Toshiba presents a 18.4 inch

Chic and elegant case; Vast connectivity; Wrist-rest is always cool; Strong application performance due to Core i7; Over averagely good sound; Adequate battery life under low load

GeForce GTS 250 is considerably slower than GeForce GTX 260M; Smudge sensitive surfaces; Keyboard yields easily; Average display brightness

Efficient gaming notebooks: With a GeForce GTS 160M, like MSI's GT628. With a GeForce 250M like Acer's Aspire 8940G, MSI's GT640 and MSI's GT740. With a GeForce GTX 260M like Alienware's M15x, Asus' G60J, Asus' G60VX, Asus' G71GX, Asus' G72GX and...

Review Toshiba Qosmio X500 Notebook (GeForce GTX 460M)

 

Back in Game. The Qosmio X500 was supposed to be the flagship gam

Good loudspeakers; Blu-Ray burner; Lavish connectivity; Fast graphics card; Good application performance; Fan dissipates towards the rear

Sensitive high-gloss surfaces; Dark and reflective display; Very warm under load

The Asus G73JW is one of the first notebooks with the new GTX 460M graphics, beside the Toshiba Qosmio. Apart from that, gamers with HD5870 graphics cards: MSI GX740, Deviltech 9700 DTX, Asus G73JH and Medion Akoya X7811 based on MSI.

Review Toshiba Qosmio X500-121 Notebook

 

Let the games begin. The X500, an 18.4-inch desktop replacement, has already found its way into our editorial office before the review even began. Toshiba recently updated the graphics card, insisting on scrapping the planned GeForce GTS 250M and...

Excellent performance in applications, Good gaming performance, Great sound quality, Blu-Ray burner, Prolific connectivity, The Core i7-720QM together with the GeForce GTS 360M ensure that games and applications run at their peak

Sensitive high-gloss surfaces, Very warm under stress, Disappointing display (contrast, black value and viewing angle), The high-gloss chassis surfaces are very sensitive, quickly smudged and easily dirtied

Toshiba Qosmio x500-11g

 

Toshiba's Qosmio marvel is a rig for the enthusiast and will eat anything that you throw at it. Fired up in 'precious black' and red it is also the most stylish desktop replacement around

If you want a fully-fledged desktop replacement that packs serious performance and features the Qosmio X500-11G is for you.

Manage your financials along with your frags with the Qosmio X500

Toshiba Qosmio X500 X500-S1812X

 

Toshiba's Qosmio X500-S1812X is hands down one of the better gaming laptops on the market today. Many companies charge more money for a brand name or for features that don't add to the overall product; Toshiba, on the other hand, has designed a product...

The crystal clear speakers and high end processor are both great additions to this gaming laptop

This laptop has a mid-range graphics card, and the manufacturer offers only mediocre support

8.53/10 If you want a decently priced machine with mid- to high- range hardware, this is the one for you.

Toshiba Qosmio X500-116 notebook - Pocket-lint

 

Toshiba's Qosmio desktop replacement laptops are big machines. Large, strikingly-designed and with lots of features. Add in Toshiba's exceptional build

Great looks, powerful specs and impressive high-resolution screen

Too heavy for real portability and there are cheaper laptops that do almost as much

You won't want to lug this laptop around too much (at 4.6kg), but you may be happy to have it on display somewhere prominent, thanks to its stylish design. Though whether that's on your desk or somewhere suitable for watching Blu-rays is up to you....
