This discreet graphics card is not designed for gamers but it does deliver excellent video and graphics, whether you are watching a TV show or YouTube clip the image delivered to the screen is as good what you get from a $2,000 TV.
You also get a built in Blu ray player and 1 Terabyte of storage which comes in handy if you are using the built in media centre recording capability for TV shows. If you decided to buy this all in one PC you may want to consider an external 2 TB drive to store TV programs or other IPTV content.
The one thing that lets this PC down has nothing to do with Toshiba. It's Microsoft's woeful media centre offering and the lack of services like Telstra BigPond Movies, or if you were buying this PC in the US, a Netflix subscription.
This PC has an excellent TV tuner and a really decent HD graphics card. However I would like a bigger screen than 21.5 inches because once you sit away from this PC, to a couch in a study, the screen looks really small.
When we played a Blu ray movie the only big experience missing was 3D, but I suspect that this will be addressed in future Toshiba all in one PCs as they have already demonstrated at the 2011 CES show, 3D running on a 21.5 inch screen without the need for 3D glasses.
What Toshiba has achieved with this PC is the marriage of function with good stylish design. They have also added an extra capability that allows a user to easily link devices like a Smartphone or tablet via a single PC.
We tested this with an Android tablet and Smartphone and it proved to be a great way to managing multiple devices through a single hub. We also integrated an external music database and a wireless Sonos S5 Zone player.
The Toshiba DX1210 PC includes HDMI-in, six USB ports (including two USB 3.0 ports) , Bluetooth, 802.11n (2.4GHz) Wi-Fi, an SD card slot and Gigabit Ethernet.
Toshiba's Sleep-and-charge technology is also built into this PC. This allows USB-based devices including tablets and an iPhone or iPad to be charged even when the PC is not powered on.
A Sleep & Music capability allows music to keep playing even when the PC is in sleep mode.
