Overall User Rating (3.5 Out of 5 based on 55 ratings)
Overall: I got it through flipkart. As usual Nice packaging & delivery.
There is no need to get doubt about the product. Its really working nice. I am using it since one month. performance is good. No objection at all.
But, few things i would like to tell you:
- as usual, speed & performance is OK as it is i3-3rd.
- No heating problem even using 8 hours continuously.
- Speakers are not up to the mark. But better with earphones.
- No bag
- No RJ45 LAN port, No VGA port, No Multi-card slot
- Screen display quality is just OK (as compared to LED-HD), i think this is LCD display, But fine to watch, means, OK.
- LAN, Wi-fi, Bluetooth working excellent.
- Weightless Also.
- No OS & Drivers, But no problem you can download all the drivers from internet.
- cam is OK, not high quality
- u can upgrade RAM, there is one unused slot.
But, for general use it is really priceworthy. ( I got it for 25999/- on Flipkart)
I went to this laptop because of my budget problem. but my suggestion is:
Please spent some more money, so u can get at least 1gb dedicated graphics. Graphic card will help u in so many ways(gaming, display quality etc.,), becoz, after buying, even if u are ready to spent 10000/- u cannot update your laptop to dedicated graphics through any means.
One more suggestion is:
There is no need to go only for Intel i3, i5, i7 2nd, 3rd......etc., There is one more processor name: AMD/APU. They dont advertise much, so we are not aware about that.
It is also very good one (If you have any doubt, u can enquire). Absolutely, No doubt about its performance. if you choose AMD, u can easily save 6000-8000/- for same configuration. Intel is branded one, they advertise more, so its cost is more. "Intel & AMD" is just like "Apple & Samsung". U can get very high configuration for very low price if u choose AMD processor. Do not worry about performance & life. (U can enquire in Google). Mostly, foreigners, other than indians, they use AMD only. Even, Samsung mobiles, they use AMD only. Even APPLE....
U can go AMD quad core processor,AMD-A4 (which is almost equal to i3), AMD-A6 (almost equal to i5), AMD-A8 (almost equal to i7-1st gen). My suggestion is go for AMD-A8 quad core, becoz its speed is upto 3.1Mhz (almost equal to i5-4th gen).
If i would have known all these things before i would have choose Lenovo G505 (AMD A8).
If you are particular about Sound, then nothing can surpass from LENOVO, because it is coming with Dolby digital technology. It is Simply Superbbbbbbb........
My last suggestion is, as it is once in a life time buying (Middle class persons like me), please at least, minimum, spend 35000/- for laptop, so u don't need to feel unsatisfactory after buying. Keep it in mind, 1GB DEDICATED (Not INTEGRATED) graphics atleast. It is must (Most people dont know the advantage it possess) for even high quality dispaly
My friend got Laptop, config: AMD A8, 1000 GB hard disk, 4GB ram, 3gb dedicated graphics, Win8 for just 35,500 (Lenovo G505). It is excellent config..& very best price.
I felt very sad, after buying laptop, because It doesn't have dedicated graphics for picture quality and gaming.
And atlast, dont think this product is not good. Its really, really very nice as if u are just for regular use.
But if you are particular with Entertainment & Gaming. This laptop is not for u. One more thing to tell you, If u are particular with Gaming, Entertainment (Not High level programming/softwares) then, AMD is far better than Intel. It works excellent than Intel When comes to multitasking. Even it is excellent with even those high level stuffs. Because my friend is using AMD from past 7 years. He said, U can go blindly for AMD.
So, this is all my experience details. Ultimately & finally, it is users choice only. Actually, I am interested in Entertainment & Gaming (Most people do this thing only in their laptops), i would have gone for some more better configuration...
So, it became very lengthy, this is first time for me, to write review for product. Really it will help others who are going to buy.
Atlast, coming to TOSHIBA, no doubts please, really nice, customer support also very nice.
