As with the D1210, Toshiba also added a pair of USB 3.0 jacks to this unit, along with four USB 2.0 jacks, an Ethernet output, and an analog audio input/output set. That will satisfy most of you, although those with more exotic audio or data connection needs will of course want to look elsewhere. Also like the D1210, you get only a basic assortment of touch screen apps with the DX735, essentially only Microsoft's spare suite of marginally useful/entertaining Surface apps. The software doesn't hurt at all, but you might also ask why include a touch screen, and its associated costs, to begin with?
|Toshiba DX735-D3201||Average watts per hour|
|Off (60 percent)||0.71|
|Sleep (10 percent)||0.86|
|Idle (25 percent)||15.53|
|Load (5 percent)||69.16|
|Annual energy cost||$9.27|
If its performance isn't overwhelming, at least the Toshiba's power consumption scales accordingly. This is one of the most power-efficient all-in-ones to ever grace the CNET lab, regardless of screen size, CPU, or any other feature.
Standard warranty coverage for the Toshiba DX735-D3201 includes one year of parts and labor. You also get 24-7 toll-free phone support, as well as a variety of diagnostic software and services on Toshiba's Web site and on the system itself.
Toshiba clearly believes that it can make a profit in the U.S. with utterly by-the-book all-in-ones. There's nothing wrong with that idea, just as there's nothing particularly wrong with the Toshiba DX735-D3201 all-in-one. I can't say that there's anything all that exciting about this desktop, either, but if you need a workhorse all-in-one with a large display for general household computing chores, this system is up to the task.
