Toshiba Protege R835 Quality?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am looking at the toshiba protege r835. Everything looks great, but i don't know how the webcam, speakers, and screen quality are? I have tried out the gateway, acer, msi, hp, and asus laptop. HP was the best of them all in term of noise and brightness. The others have very noisy webcam. How's the toshiba webcam? Is it noisy? What about speaker quality to a hp? I know laptop speaker are weak, but it is fine if it is as good as hp. How's the screen color compare to the hp dm4?

It is a pretty nice computer actually. A friend of mine bought one and had me remove the bloat and install some programs for him. Had a nice screen and lightweight too.

Its my favorite laptop on the market right now...Perfect size for a laptop, great screen resolution for a 13 inch screen, bright panel, light as hell(3.2lbs, iirc) feels sturdy for how light it is, get great reviews(at least the r705 did, last gen's model), epic battery life(overstated on most sites, but reviews still list about 5-6 hours which is awesome for the price). All in all, if I had the money, I would buy one and replace it with my netbook, and then throw a cheap small solid state drive on it.

I don't know if the sound is great on them, I doubt it is considering the size, but I havent tested the models I have played with. That and the webcam isn't full HD or anything, but from what I tested, perfect quality for streaming, lighting was good, quality was good, etc.

Have you tried out a gateway or a msi laptop webcam? Is it noisy like that under indoor yellowish lighting?

The screen and speakers are average quality, and I wouldn't expect too much from a laptop's built in webcam. The build quality is pretty good from what I heard.
