Top Customer Reviews
+ backlit keyboard
+ amazing speakers (like, best I've heard on a laptop, amazing (though my new xps 14 is at least equal to these)
+ circular scrolling is extremely effective
+ high resolution hdmi out
+ nice slot loading dvd drive
+ FN keys accessible from the screen with the mouse
+ boots very quickly if you enable it
-extraordinarily loud fan
* fan turns on at a high power level even when laptop is idle
-keyboard keys occasionally (often) fail
-extremely limited viewing angles
Update: I've since purchased a dell xps 14, and It has the gt420m that this was originally advertised as having. Having tested both the 420 far outperforms the 330 in real-world testing.
The sound on it is great! I love the virtual surround sound, when I'm sitting listening to music on the laptop it does feel like I have a surround sound system, it's good quality sound too, I didn't know a laptop's sound quality could be so good.
The screen is nice and bright, very clear good quality picture, and I love the fact that you can view the computer at an angle without getting the dark shadows like you usually do on the LCD computer screens, it stays nice and crisp even viewed at an angle.
The only critiques I have on the computer is that when I got it and the backlit keyboard came on for the first time... it was rather bright, and hurt my eyes a bit, but then again I am not used to backlit keyboards either. Now I don't notice it as much and I've only had it for 4 days now, so I no longer have complaints about it, and in fact it's been a nice feature when I'm in a low light setting.
Also, right now Amazon shows in the pictures that the DVD drive is the standard pop out drive, however, this is also not the case. It is a dvd drive that is a slot drive, where you push the CD into a slot rather than pop out a tray. This was a pleasent surprise for me, one turn off on dvd drives on laptops for me has always been the pop out drives because they are so flimsy that I feel like they'll break on me.Read more ›
the only complaints I can think of are that the battery only lasts a couple hours which would have been unheard of a few years ago but now is only average. also the right and left clickers on the mouse pad are very stiff. this isn't a big deal but there it is.
I was shocked when I received this laptop it has NO BLU RAY on it but in the description when I bought it last September 26,2010 there is....Please explain the sudden change of specs???
Let me first state that this is not my first Toshiba laptop. But I must say that this is the best one of the bunch. I was using a full-sized laptop before this, and wanted to scale down in size, but not in capabilities. The 6 gigs of RAM powers through multiple application use very well. The fan is not loud, as stated in previous reviews. The backlit keyboard is a first for me, and is quite useful. Windows 7 can in no way equal the Mac OS that is on my daughter's MacBook Pro, but it is as close as it's likely to get! The hard drive is roomy enough for me not to have to store my iTunes library on a separate hard drive, which for me, is a big deal! It was pricy compared to your run-of-the-mill laptops out there. But, in this case, you get what you pay for. I am very pleased with this purchase so far, and would recommend this laptop to anyone.
