The design of this laptop is superb with black and red all over the place. The illuminated keyboard makes everything clearly visible and not to mention super fast with 4 gigs of ram. Upon first boot, it gave me some errors about lan ethernet not being connected by it was easily fixed when i jumped into system bios and change the setting.
The weight of this laptop needs some getting used to because it is 11 lbs. It is a bit on the heavy side. Also, I was a little hesistant because it came with only 500gigz of hdd space but after feeling the speed and seeing the size of the 18" 1080p HD display, I'd say it was worth it.
The Harmon Kardon speakers are super crisp sounding and the touch music buttons on the left side of the keyboard makes playing media easy. The best thing about this laptop is that it comes with a numeric keypad that most laptops do not come with to save space. I use the numeric keypad alot daily. This is a key reason I chose this beast, for speed and the keyboard layout. All the extras that it comes with made my decision clear.
If your looking to replace a desktop but want a big display with superb quality and decent size with a numeric keypad, this is definately one of the laptops you should consider.
-Tested with great results for 64 bit Cockos Reaper 3.69 and Propellerhead Reason 5, individually AND in ReWire mode, and for 64 bit EastWest Quantum Leap Play instruments. Solid performance with multiple VST instruments, effects, and even real-time mastering at the same time.
-If a musician debated whether to buy a Mac or a Windows laptop, he or she should consider that this model has more power and features for much less money than the top-of-the-line (or even a comparable) MacBook Pro costs. Unless a musician used Logic, considering that all other major digital audio workstation software titles are available for Windows, this one would be a better deal.
-Shopping around, a musician would notice that other laptops MAY have a 1080p screen, i7 processor, Blu-Ray drive, FireWire port, ExpressCard port, eSATA port, GigaBit LAN, but he or she would be hard pressed to find all those features in ONE laptop. This model has them all.
-Perfect for musicians who want horsepower in the studio, but also want it available to them on the road. With the connection options for eSATA (for fast streaming sample libraries); FireWire, ExpressCard, or USB2 ports for professional audio interfaces; four cores for real-time effects processing; and large enough screen for effective work in a digital audio workstation; this laptop can easily be even the main production machine of a home studio.
-64 bit Windows provides more speed, memory support and power for resource-hungry music applications.Read more ›
This is a review is about the Qosmio x505-880 model.
I ordered the Qosmio x505-880 on 12/9/09. I received my laptop on Wed, Feb 10, 2010 at 1:58 PM (2 months later). After opening and setting up the laptop, I notice that it would shut down intermittently and restart. I immediately contacted customer support who tried brief troubleshoots. They quickly realized that it was a hardware issue, and generated a return procedure and I shipped back my new $2300.00 laptop. Toshiba shipped me out a new laptop on Tue, Mar 9, 2010 at 7:45 AM (4 months after my initial purchase). The months following, the Qosmio x505-880 worked without any problems, the only concerning observations was the design placement of the AC adapter power cord input which was on the ride side of the laptop, so if you are right handed and use your mouse on the right side you are bothered by the obstruction of the power cord. The only other disappointment was the volume, even with Windows sound mixer at maximum it seemed a little low. Otherwise I found the laptop to perform as expected.
The problem began 4 months ago (around October of 2010) when I noticed it started to shut itself off intermittently as did the first Qosmio x505-880 that I received.Read more ›
