    Fantastic system, particularly for the price, December 8, 2012

    Usually I go with Asus for PC laptops. I’m replacing my MacBook Pro (I just don’t need a Mac) and had two major requirements… an i7 Intel processor and 8G of RAM minimum. This system matched those easily.

    There is a similar version of this laptop that has a Blue Ray burner instead of the DVD-RW, a much better graphics card (with 2G onboard RAM…), and an SSD boot drive with a 5400RPM regular drive (instead of just the 5400 regular drive). It was a little over $900. None of these were things I absolutely needed so I opted for the savings.

    I have one qualm which docked it a star. The colors on the monitor are a bit muted. Its brightness, clarity, and so forth are all great, but the contrasts aren’t as good. Then again, I am almost always hooked up to a dual monitor (which I haven’t tested yet) instead of using the laptop monitor so I don’t care quite as much, and movies still look fine, but don’t expect the screen to be something fabulous.

    The one thing that almost kept me from buying the system was its form factor. I was afraid from the pictures that it was going to be bulky and ugly. I have been pleasantly surprised, it is sleek. The weight is very well balanced, the keyboard is very comfy (and full size), the touch pad is well placed (I’m not having any palm problems).

    In so far as speed, absolutely no problems there at all.

    I really like this system, and am looking forward to a good long run with it.

    The other reviewer was upset that the specifications “did not match” the computer. As for speed, the processor runs “normally” at 2.4 GHz with turbo boost of speeds up to 3.4 GHz. I agree that the speed may be misleading, but it’s important to note that with mobile processors, the speed difference is employed to help prolong battery life and only deliver the 3.4 GHz performance when absolutely needed.

    As for the hard drive only being reported as 688 GB when it is supposed to be 750 GB, there are 2 things probably affecting this- First, there is probably a hidden recovery partition and Windows won’t report that as part of the drive. Second, Windows reports drives using powers of 1024 whereas drive manufacturers us powers of 1000 to report drive size. As an example, my computer has a 750 GB drive, but Windows only reports it as 654 GB. The recovery partition is using 29 GB and the remainder is accounted for by the “math error” that is manifested by the 2 different methods of calculating drive size. If you do a search for why the difference in reported hard drive sizes, you will find many articles that will explain this more clearly.

    Excellent product, February 17, 2013

    The hardware of this product is excellent, maybe the bad thing is that if you want to install another Operating System, you have to change advance features of the bios, to make it work.

    But in another hand, is a powerfull machine, you can play games in excellent video an audio quality, and awesome processor, plus 8 GB of RAM, it makes it and excellent choice also if you want to work with different programming IDE’s.

    Love this laptop, lots of cool and handy features, such as sleep & charge and sleep & music and runs all my programs fast and to a high quality.

    The screen and sound quality is also amazing, I have yet to need to use the sound output above 50%, just to show how loud the sound can go!

    One issue I have had so far is that during a relatively low graphically demanding game I get a black rectangle on the floor and I have yet to find a solution to correct this issue. If it wasn’t for that problem (And the fact Windows is still not to the same level as Windows 7 in my opinion) I would probably have given the laptop a five star rating.

    First: The title is WRONG…this is a TOSHIBA QOSMIO X875-Q7380, not a Toshiba Satellite X875-Q7190….

    I love the laptop, but the battery is horrible….2 hrs if ur lucky, and thats not doing much other than word processing…..and i cant find a compatible battery as of yet….

    Great Computer, Tiger Direct Support Pathetic!!!!, March 21, 2013

    This review is from: Toshiba Qosmio X875-Q7190 17.3-Inch Laptop (Black Widow Styling in Diamond-Textured Aluminum) (Personal Computers)

    We are loving the capabilities of this new laptop. It has a few quirks, but, for the most part, it’s doing what we expect it to do. We did have trouble with the DVD drive. It wouldn’t read anything. In contacting support at Toshiba, they said we could send it to them and pay the shipping. Tiger Direct’s response…by phone…none, they refused to answer their phone. By chat…none…not available. By email…average of 4-5 days for a response (they promise 24 hours or maybe 48)…NOT!!! Their solution…issue an RMA and return it…no explanation, no offer for support, just return it. No instructions on how to do that…we have to wait another 5 days for the details…then another 5 days for an RMA…really? Are you serious? Support? Is that what Tiger Direct calls support????? Lame….so then, on a whim, my wife decides to tweet Toshiba…response within 1 day with a solution…driver problems, problem fixed….with one click…go figure….no thanks to Tiger Direct….I would NOT buy from them ever again because of this issue alone…no matter the savings…
