Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio F755-3D290

Toshiba Qosmio F755 Review
Source: Maximum PC English
We have a term for technology like Toshiba’s Qosmio F755 laptop. It’s “demo cool.” It wows you in a demo, but after some serious testing, you’re not quite sure you’d want to use it day in and day out. Though we’re impressed by the technical achievement of Toshiba’s glasses-free 3D technology, it’s just not developed enough to earn our recommendation.

Toshiba Qosmio F755-3D290: Glasses-Free 3D?
Source: AnandTech English
Reviewing Toshiba's Qosmio F755-3D290 was unfortunately both very easy and very difficult to do. It's easy for anyone to gripe about something and as a reviewer I take my job seriously; you're going to be a lot more miffed about an unpleasant surprise with your new purchase than a pleasant one.

50% Toshiba Qosmio F755-3D290
Source: PC World English
Overall, the Toshiba Qosmio F755-3D290 seems to be a one-trick pony, and it doesn’t really perform its one trick all that well. The auto-stereoscopic 3D is impressive in that it works, but the limitations are too glaring for the feature to be of much use. The excellent LCD panel (under normal use) and the good audio playback quality mitigate the 3D problem quite a bit. Considering that this laptop costs nearly $1700 (as of November 1, 2011) and weighs almost 9 pounds with the power brick, however, you may want to opt for something easier on your back, with fewer gimmicks.

Many of the unique demo units and prototypes seen at the annual CES show don't make it onto store shelves in the near term, if at all (for example, Lenovo's convertible U1 tablet/laptop). More of a proof-of-concept than anything else, the glasses-free 15-inch 3D display on the Toshiba Qosmio F755 can be impressive when paired with the right content.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:

Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

3.4 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
