4 out of 5 stars   Large screen makes for a heavy product
By Cory (Pittsburgh, PA) January 07, 2011
Review submitted for Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q885 TruBrite 18.4-Inch Laptop (Black/Red) (TBX505Q885)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great sound, Large screen, Keyboard has nice feel
Cons: Heavy, Touchpad Scroll is bad
Other Comments: I really like the size of the screen and the feel of the keyboard. My only real disappointment is the touchpad...the scrolling is awful; hard to activate and use. A mouse would eliminate this but computer is so large, you would need a big table/desk to use mouse off to the side.

4 out of 5 stars   Great Development Solution
By DaAmazing1 (Allentown, PA) December 06, 2010
Review submitted for Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q885 TruBrite 18.4-Inch Laptop (Black/Red) (TBX505Q885)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Battery Life, Screen size, Performance, price, Sleek
Cons: Placement of media button, Size of charger
Other Comments: I'm using the laptop as a desktop replacement, the 18.4 inch screen is fantastic at accomplishing that. If the screen were any smaller, there is no way I would even consider replacement my desktop with a laptop. I primarily do software development and the apps need a lot of screen space. The laptop doesn't run hot, the processor is fast and the hard drive space and memory are more than adequate for software development with all the newer cutting edge development IDE such as Visual Studio 2010, Eclipse, etc... Only downside is the placement of the media keys on the left of the keyboard. I find myself accidentally hitting them all the time.

4 out of 5 stars   Solid gaming laptop
By Ben (California) November 26, 2010
Review submitted for Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q885 TruBrite 18.4-Inch Laptop (Black/Red) (TBX505Q885)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Speakers, Pretty solid construction, Cool running, Super fast, Nice keyboard
Cons: Non-LED backlit screen, toshiba bloatware
Other Comments: Nice laptop with these kind of specs. Scores 6.8 on all "windows experience index" except for memory and hard drive (5.8 on those). I can do gaming and multitasking on this computer and it doesn't break a sweat. Stays pretty cool too even after long gaming sessions. The full keyboard is very nice and this laptop has all of your needed connections covered nicely (4 usb ports, VGA, HDMI, etc etc). My only complaint is the lack of an LED backlit display, and the location of the the media shortcut keys makes them easy to accidentally hit (which will sometimes boot you out of your gaming window).
