Toshiba Qosmio F755-3D290 Glasses-Free 3D laptop is certainly a wonder product from Toshiba. Although there are few glass-free 3D systems from few brands, Toshiba Qosmio F755-3D290 Glasses-Free 3D laptop seems to be quite special with eye-tracking software that keeps track of the head movements of the user and adjusts the stereoscopic image accordingly to get best images. However, the resolution of the screen drops down to 720 pixels from the original 1080p for 3D contents.
Of course, it takes a few moments for eye orientation to get the 3D effect for new users. However, the in-built eye-tracking feature makes it really easy providing considerable freedom of movement. One disadvantage of the eye-tracking software is that only one user will be able to enjoy the complete 3D effects. Only 3D blu-ray and 3D video can be played in its player and the technology doesn’t support 3D, when it comes to playing games or live streaming. However the laptop comes with a promise that the feature would be extended to gaming in the near feature.
But for the stereoscopic screen rest of the system’s components, such as Intel Core i7 CPU, discrete Nvidia graphics, the Blu-ray-burning drive are similar to those of Toshiba Qosmio series. On the outlook, the product seems to have the traditional look. Other stylish elements include the island style keyboard with conveniently spaced keys. The full sized number pad, feather touch control buttons on top of the keyboard, volume controls and 3D on off switch are simply great in design and easy to use.
Although it is great product, if you expect it to be a completely satisfying product, then you are likely to be disappointed. The product can be better defined as a proof for the concept rather than a complete one. It still has a long way to go. Instructions on the 3D certainly lack clarity. However, if you get used to the system then you will be really enjoying the 3D blu-ray. Although there is 2D to 3D conversion function, it seems to be headache than enjoyment.
As soon as you pop in a 3D Blu-ray disk, the system automatically launches the custom player and provides you with the option of choosing either 3D or 2D. Although the custom application from Toshiba is quite slow, the greatness lies in its uniqueness. Do not compare the quality of 3D effect with that you seen in a theater or 3D TV using glasses. The great plus is the presence of the eye tracking software that allows head movements while watching the 3D videos.
While it is normal for people to expect a Blu-ray drive in a multimedia laptop such as Toshiba Qosmio F755-3D290, surprisingly the drive also can record Blu-rays apart from DVDs. Toshiba Qosmio F755-3D290 as of now is only available in a single fixed configuration without any chances of upgradation for the midlevel Nvidia GeForce 540M graphics. Comparing with the available glass-free 3D laptops in the market, Toshiba Qosmio F755-3D290 is a lot superior product worth buying.
