Amazing product from toshiba
by D Sriram Pavan on 2014-04-28
thanks flipkart for wonderful packing and quick delivery.. laptop is stylish, fast and with 2gb graphics card and worth every penny.. only problem i faced so far is letter n not getting typed easily... rest all fine... got it for 30500 and its a superb deal...
would have been excellent if flipkart provided backpack... but not a big probs... we can get backpacks easily everywhere....
volume is bit on lower side..
update after 1 month usage,,
1. As stated above laptop is stylish and fast
2, i got the silver colour laptop and the glossy silver is susceptible to scratches easily.. so better to buy and apply a decal or laptop skin,,
3. Battery pack up is okay,, (could be better) but getting 3 to 3 and half hours depending on usage,,
4, keypad is excellent except letter N is giving some trouble to me
5, bluetooth is very good,,, touch pad is good,
6, usb 3 is awesome and offering superb speed - using WD passport external hard disk
7, got 1 year warranty and 2 years extended warranty as a part of the offer and very happy and tension free,,,
little bit heating is there,, but thats okay,, not a big deal
and volume is on lower side,,,
one way to conclude,,, its a beauty and the beast,,,and very good choice especially with 2 years extended warranty,,
CANT comment about gaming because yet to play any high end gaming,, but with NVIDIA geforce 2gb graphics i am pretty sure its a good gaming stuff,,,
1, Got keypad malfunctioning problem after 4-5 months of usage,, some keys are not responding or sometimes functioning weird, (for eg,, whenever i type key R, number 5 or some weird symbols appear on screen,,)
but with 3 years warranty i hope i will get it repaired under free warranty and hoping good response from the service center,, will update again after service,,
APART FROM THIS MINOR COMPLAINT EVERYTHING IS FINE AND AMAZED AT THE BATTERY PACKUP,, TOTALLY SATISFIED WITH THE PRODUCT,, CLOSE YOUR EYES AND TAKE THIS LAPTOP IF U R LOOKING AT THIS PRICE RANGE,,,, AND THE SPECIFICATIONS MEETS YOUR REQUIREMENTS,,
THANK U TOSHIBA AND FLIPKART....
Good Product, Bad Sales Team of Toshiba

The product is pretty good and at such a low price, it couldn't get better. But before purchasing, I contacted sales team of Toshiba and they said that the extended warranty is valid with it. But after purchase the service team says it isn't.

Good packing and fast delivery..Good product configurations in this prize range .
Did not fully satisfy with the make quality of laptop body. Feels like toy plastic so not recommend for rough use.Performance is very good.

Looks - Classy. Anyone who first sees my laptop has got something wonderful to say about it.
Display - Bright, crisp and great horizontal viewing (vertical not that great)
Sound - Decent. But could have been better.
Keyboard - Wow I am in love with this keyboard. Really feels great to type.
Battery - Gives me a good 3-3.5 hrs on my resource-heavy use
Graphics - The graphic card does me good for the video editing stuff. But cant comment further than that, cos I am not into games.
Performance - Phenomenal. No lags whatsoever till date. I am happy to see the grumpy faces of my colleagues' (using 50k+ 4th gen i5s and beyond) when they see the breezy performance on my laptop. I do audio and video editing which is quite resource-heavy.
Drivers - Hassle free. I found each and every driver on the toshiba website for win7 x64. Can't comment for any other OS that you plan to install.
Price - I like to call such stuff - "a tit-bit expensive than free"
Audio Output could have been better. Inaudible in noisy environments.
Heating - Constant usage for more than 2.5-3 hrs ..... and you ought to give the laptop some cooling time.
Awesome product in this budget

OK. I have received the product. After researching and choosing a long list of produucts, I have finally decided to buy this one. At first I was thinking to buy sony laptop. the Pro is you are getting a genuine OS by that. But anyway, most of us will not buy any software required not even me. So bought this one.
About this laptop. Build quality nice. looks are nice.
I had some problems during installation and sorted it out.
Now about performance. Just good. I am playing NFS The Run for two days. Not a single lag.
And heat produced during gaming. It cools only in 5 minutes.
one tip if you yourself install the OS. Install the PCI Communication driver before installing the Bluetooth drivers. Else your system might go to repair mode after reboot.
I think others provide 6 months warranty for battery. But Toshiba provides 1 year for battery too. So if you want to buy it, go for it without hesitation.
Superb ! Awesome machine for this price
by Raghuram Hariharan on 2014-04-02
Simply the best.... Got this product with a safe packing and super fast delivery. Its truly an amazing laptop.. Superb config for a under 30k model.
Budget - 5/5
Appearance - 4/5 (shining silver is attractive)
Graphics - NVIDIA 710M with 2GB memory - Worth every penny
Warranty - Free Toshiba extended warranty for 2 years (yes you read it right it is 1year + 2 years) if you purchase before 30th Apr'14
Slightly heats up... But after installing the drivers heating issue less
No OS - Before buying check if you have a OS in hand
Toshiba drivers - Plenty of drivers in Toshiba website - difficult to find the apt one... But still you will find it some how.
No product manual - Except for the specs specified, it is difficult to identify what brand and config is inside. Not even a detailed pdf is available for this model
Toshiba service quality- Yet to be tested
Webcam - Its HD, but not that great
Overall: Worth the buy

2 gb nvidiya graphics........
Best Performance Laptop At This Price
by Vishnu M on 2015-03-25
I've been using this laptop for the past six months and my experience with it is great. Because this is the best performance laptop you can get at this price. What makes this laptop ideal for everyday work and entertainment is its specifications. I'll list the pros and cons of this product so that you can make a decision. Laptop selection is all about personal preferences and aesthetics.
1. 3rd Generation Core i3 with 2.4GHz clock and Hyper-Threading
There are laptops with the latest 4th generation Core i3 but their clock speed compared to this is low. The more clock speed the more faster you can work. The 4th generation Intel laptop processors give importance to power consumption than raw performance. That's why I chose this laptop instead of any 4th generation one. The Hyper-Threading technology enables the processor to have two more execution cores, so you get a quad core processor. The processor also have an integrated Intel HD graphics processor. It is useful if you want to disable the Dedicated Nvidia GPU to save power.
2. Nvidia GeForce 710M
This is a powerful mobile GPU from Nvidia which will satisfy all your graphics needs. The GPU is provided with 2GB DDR3 dedicated graphics memory. Therefore you can enjoy all your games with high texture quality. I've played games like BF3, COD3, FC3 etc with no problem and enough frame rate.
3. 4 GB DDR3 RAM
It is Intel i3 and you need at least 4 GB of RAM on this machine which is included with it. The laptop has two memory slots and each of them can support up to 8 GB modules. So there is no limit for a memory upgrade.
4. No OS
This is a good thing because you don't have to pay for any pre-installed operating system. You only have pay for the hardware. You can install any OS you prefer. Installing the drivers is a mess. I'd recommend DriverPack Solution 14 or higher for initial installation of all drivers.
5. USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI and VGA ports
These features are common in all those laptops. So it's no big deal. But this lap has only got one 3.0 port. You can connect any of your USB 3.0 external HDDs to this to have some additional storage. It has a VGA port for old projectors and HDMI port for new projectors.
6. One year Onsite-Warranty with extension program
You have to register your laptop at the Toshiba India website to avail a one year on-site warranty as soon as you buy it. You can extend your warranty by additional two years for an amount below Rs.5000/-
1. Battery Backup
This laptop has a 6 cell 65W battery pack which will only give an average 3 Hrs of normal usage. The battery capacity could have been improved.
2. Only 500 GB of HDD capacity
I don't think 500 GB is enough for an above average user with all his 1080p videos, softwares, games, music, smartphone backup etc. This laptop needed at least a 750 GB of HDD. But this is ok with many people.
3. The stereo speakers suck
The speakers are nothing for a comparison with some older models from Toshiba or other brands. The sound output is too low. You can't enjoy any music or movies unless it is night and you are alone in your room with no other sound ! I expected more from the speakers. But that is not a problem for me at all, because I always use my over the year headphones to to listen to anything and it is great.
4. The glossy finish
People usually don't like a very glossy and slippery laptop frame which is what this laptop got. But it is not that much of a concern. It's fine with me as it has no influence in the performance of the machine.
5. Average build quality
The laptop is not top-notch in terms of build quality like some Dell or Lenovo laptops. You have to be careful with this laptop.
There are more pros and cons too. But the above are the main. All other features are just like what other laptops have. The specifications says it has one USB 2.0 port and one 3.0 port. But you actually have two USB 2.0 ports though one of them looks strange. The touch pad has matte finish. The HD camera is very good for video chat and the mic is very sensitive. The keyboard is not that great but fine. There is no heating issue with this laptop unless you are doing it wrong.
Bottom line : If you are looking for a performance laptop at this price with all latest features, this is it. Recommended at this price.
