Not worth it!

By Jenna from Minneapolis, MN on 07/30/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this laptop backpack in January to use for school. I have to transport my laptop and books everyday, and wanted the padded laptop compartment. After less than one month, the top handle began to tear, and is now almost completely torn off. Most of the zipper pulls have broken, and the straps also look like they are beginning to fray. The backpack I had prior to this one lasted almost 10 years without this kind of wear. I do not recommend this backpack.

Would Be a 5, BUT...

By cmcj from NE on 12/23/2012

Great bag...great size and room for stuff, but as everyone here has said, the handle and shoulder straps all three rip away from the bag, then it becomes useless...for this price it is not worth it. It is just not sturdy enough to handle the necessary weight of computer and accessories/books. This could have been fixed in the design and testing of this product. We need more options.

Roomy, but prone to tearing

By DMC3472 from North Carolina on 12/02/2012

Good laptop bag that has served me well for about a year and a half. Plenty of room for the laptop and it;s massive power brick, and other accessories. Only complaint - after about 9 months of daily use the top of the bag started tearing. Multiple at home repairs have allowed me to continue using the bag, but the whole top has now completely pulled apart, with the handle coming completely off the bag.

all my books and computer fit 50lbs

By bwb85ta from WA on 03/06/2012

I really likethe backpack but as others have mentioned it stearts tearing at the top; you cant carry by the handle. I had to buy some strong thread to fix it if you get one reenforce it before you use it. I might buy another one and give mine to my daughter unless they will actully warenty it.

Surprisingly Poor quality bag

By Lux from Georgia on 02/10/2012

I purchased this bag after buying an ASUS G74S laptop as I needed a new bag for the larger laptop, but also needed something large enough for me to use at college. I was initially disappointed that the G74S didn't fit in the laptop sleeve, but it did fit in the bag quite nicely, so I was okay with that. After only a few days, the top handle began to rip from the bag, and the shoulder strap began to separate from the body of the bag. I previously owned a Toshiba laptop, which I loved, and gave the bag a chance because of the Toshiba brand. I will say that I liked the number and size of the pockets and pouches, but this is not a quality bag, and needs more reinforcement in order to live up to what someone would expect to carry in a bag this size.

Nice but!

By Bill B from Birmingham, AL on 10/07/2011

Just like the other bags that were reviewed, mine started to tear at the top seam after a month. Its just not a quality product that will stand up to even moderate use with a heavy laptop. Toshiba should pull the product from the line as it is obvious that it has a quality problem with this item.

Great Backpack!

By Daringwomen from Roseville, CA on 06/24/2011

I purchased this for my Qosmio 18.4 and it fits beautifully. I have had none of the quality problems of the other reviewer. Small things will roll around in the bottom, but there are plenty of other pockets for small things. It is well padded and suits my needs perfectly.
