I downloaded the latest driver NVIDIA had, still didn't work.

This is one laptop i think i will have for a long time with no issues, compared to my HP that only lasted a year.
Sam Flatt
My only nitpick is the touchpad, it supports multi touch, but is tiny.

This review is broken into several parts for those that would like an in depth review, or would like to know specific details.

Seller: Best Custom P.C. LLC

As soon as Amazon allows me to, this company will be receiving five stars. They are the best company that I have ever dealt with (this includes offline stores as well.) They answered all of my questions quickly, and were polite and personable in their responses. I received a handwritten thank you note with my order (I ask you, when have you EVER received a hand written anything from a business, much less from the owner?)The system they sell you is double checked by two computer professionals, and everything is tested. They ship quickly, and are one of the few third party vendors that will provide you with tracking information.

Qosmio x505-870:

General:
First off know what you are getting into. This machine is not some cute little Vaio. Don't misunderstand me it looks awesome, but when Toshiba says desktop replacement they MEAN desktop replacement. To put this in perspective I have a Macbook Air which is a thirteen inch laptop. I can literally put it on the Qosmio in the upper right hand corner and it will come to the "w" key to halfway down the touchpad. To put it another way, I can open the Mac's screen and still watch a youtube video behind it on the Qosmio's monitor. There for, I don't understand some of the other reviews where they complain that it is heavy. This isn't a netbook. It isn't completely immovable though. Just understand this thing is HUGE, and lugging it around isn't going to be fun for long walks in Manhattan. The keyboard is backlit, and full sized with a numeric pad. On your left there are touch media keys that I like.

After exhaustive research, I decided the Toshiba Cosmio x505-870 powerhouse had the best specs for the best price. This was the next in a long line of Toshiba laptops for me. I was hooked after my first one about 10 years ago. Due to the design, durability, price, and support, Toshibas have always been my first choice and I would, and do, recommend them to everyone that asks. The Cosmio X505-870 is my new passion. My only complaints are minor and cosmetic. The slick surface of the keyboard and the awkward multimedia and power buttons are the only hindrances I have found. The new, positive design elements far outway the problems though. The toned-down color scheme, the disable button for the touchpad, and the beautiful 18.4 screen(although not full 1080p) to name a few. There were some issues with the BIOS that Toshiba addressed directly, so I would suggest updating the BIOS immediatly after creating your restore disks. I don't think it would be possible to regret the purcase of this system, and I recommend it whole-heartidly.

For the price this is 1 amazing laptop! I've thrown Star Trek Online, Bioshock 1 and 2 at it and everything played fully maxxed out w/ great frame rates. Left 4 Dead 2 even looks impressive on it! The Blu Ray drive has come in handy as well for watching movies and shows. The only complaint I have is that it is a fingerprint magnet...but honestly it is only a small complaint.

The X505-Q870 is a big and powerful system, but it has a couple of big issues. The biggest problem is the track pad is so bad it is almost mandatory that you get mouse from the outset otherwise will get more than annoyed. The second problem is the keyboard; it is way too soft and mushy for my taste especially for a big laptop. The face recognition with webcam does really work at all, but the camers works fine. I would have preferred the fingerprint security that Toshiba had on other laptops. Getting your smartphone to charge while the laptop is sleeping does not work either, at least it did not for me despite following their instructions to set it up. Still this system is OK for my purposes.

This is an awesome laptop!!!!!! Im computer stupid and it makes use easy. The keyboard is a dream to use the dvd/blueray player is as clear if not clearer than my TV.

For gaming the laptop is the best computer i have ever had the pleasure of using, the graphics card can handle the highest settings in any game.

If i needed another laptop this would be the one i would buy!!!!!!!!!!!

Love the screen, great for games, movies etc. The sound is A+. The computer start-up is very fast! Most things are great especially the speed, this computer functions at warp speed which contributes to some of its quirks. I've had it for 4 months now. Two problems though #1. The plug in for the adapter is always coming loose. Move and the adapter will pop off. You are no longer charging. This can lead to unpredictability and surprise when your laptop just turns off. But don't fear I've never lost any info. The startup QUICKLY resumes where you left off. #2. The laptop mouse is touchy. I have very small hands and still when I am typing my palm may touch the pad and off I go jumping off screen, maybe even going on line when I thought I was working in Word. Who knows where my mischievious palm may lead me (I usually work with many windows open, palm touches screen moves arrow and off I go). Also, the mouse scrolls unpredictably due to the side scrolls. It can be frustrating (OOops lost that page, touched the side of the mouse pad). Overall I would purchase the laptop again now that I understand the quirks and how they happen. At first I thought wow, is this thing possessed! How in the world did that happen? Now I know and no I'm not going crazy, the laptop is just functioning at lightening speed and therefore has its quirks.
