    Targus TXL617 reviews

    TXL617 XL Notebook Backpack (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic backpack all i was hoping for in a backpack and more. the primary features i was interested in: 1. fit my 18 gargantuan laptop (HP 8710w) 2. big enough to consolidate my old laptop bad + another shoulder bag 3. sturdy enough construction to be mistreated and still protect my gear. all of these expectations were met, and i also got: 1. pockets and compartments to keep all of my knick-knacks organized. 2. enough storage space for all of my books. 3. netted sleeve for my water bottle. 4. the reputable Targus brand name. highly recommended. if you have a lot of stuff to lug around like me, you won't be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Travel This is the second Targus TXL617 XL Notebook Backpack I have purchased. The first travelled internationally with me for 5 or 6 years. I purchased another instead of cleaning the old bag. The old bag shows almost no wear other than being dirty and a having a couple of small punctures in the nylon. I just took this new bag to Europe for a short trip and packed everything I needed in it as a carry-on bag with room to spare. I find it easier to carry than a roll around bag when I go to places where local travel is by foot, train, or bus. You almost cannot overstuff this bag. The zippers are really strong.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the TX617 XL is XL I bought the bag work business travel in hopes of it being big enough to eliminate the need for another airplane carry on. Much to my liking it was large enough to carry my 17in laptop, notebooks and a change of clothing with room to spare. The bag has many sections all with zipper closures. Only drawback of this bag is if you load it full it could be heavy and if your not organized it may take you some time to search through all the different sections of the bag to find what your looking for. I would recommend this bag for a traveler or someone who likes to carry everything including the kitchen sink.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bag at a good price. I bought this for my new Toshiba Qosmio laptop with the 18.4 screen. It fits perfectly. There are plenty of pockets and compartments, almost too many. The consctruction is solid although not quite the top end my Swiss backpack I had before. For the price though it is hard to beat. I would highly recommend it to anyone with a very large laptop. My only complaint is there is no chest strap but it stays on my shoulders just fine without it so probably not necessary.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Similar look but not as sturdy I purchased the same backpack about 5 years ago. This new one has the same exact color and has almost all the same features, except in quality. I could tell as soon as I touched it that the material was a cheaper quality. Targus cut manufacturing costs and now uses a less sturdy material. That said, I still like the backpack and all of its well laid out storage compartments. It holds my 17.3 laptop very nicely. As long as this backpack holds out for several years, then it will be a good value for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tech Nerd's Dream Bag This backpack is such a great way to transport all my tech gear when I go somewhere. It allows for me to bring the following comfortably with extra room to spare: 17 Laptop External Hard Drive iPod (3rd Generation Large Version). Sony Handycam Kodak Digital Camera Logitech HD Webcam Samsung Galaxy Note II (Phone) Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (Tablet) Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard There's extra room left over for some spiral notebooks and a place for pens as well. I had another Targus bag a while back that was somewhat like this, but this will be used by me for a long time!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Backpack I have been trying to get my hands on this for a long time now and B&H had the lowest price of all the online retailers i checked. It has room for two laptops of 15.6 inch and a compartment where you can put your books and a spare set of clothes. I do a lot of travelling and this is quite convenient to lug around. It has a flap in the front which has convenient zippers where you can stash away your mp3 player, pens, etc. The price here is a good $ dollars lesser than the manufacturer's website.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!! Best backpack ever made!! Best laptop backpack I have ever used! I have a 18.4 inch laptop and it fits perfectly. There are other slots to insert smaller sized laptops which is major plus. I've never had so many pockets in a backpack and now I get to hold a lot of different items that I used to carry in ... bags. Yes, now i have two hands free when I travel with my new awesome backpack!!!
