I loved it for two years: then it died

Dan Bear "Dan", Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: This was a great laptop for the money but it died after 23 months. It only had a one year warranty. I bought something to replace it that had a much longer warranty but costs about 75% more.

Best in Class

William E. Sandoe, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: For a Windows machine this is a nice system. They ship with NO supporting CDs. Make sure to make your own recovery discs or media.

Disappointed

R. S. Cooper, Amazon
14 July 2012
  • Summary: I researched and decided on this laptop because of the features in such a light machine. After having it 2 weeks I can say the operative word here is "light." I think the screen won't last a year...it is so flimsy. Also, the colors are washed out with a poor contrast.

Wish Toshiba improved the keyboard

Yee Min, Amazon
26 May 2012
  • Summary: I was excited when the package arrived, but I have been somewhat disappointed with some aspects of the Protege R835. Let's start with the good stuff: 1. Extremely portable. It is really light for all the features available. 2. Good screen size and sharp display. 3. Touch mouse is responsive. 4.

Broken on arrival

Gregory C., Newegg
5 February 2012
  • Summary: Not a bad choice for a laptop if your looking for decent performance in a small package at a reasonable price. Intel graphics have always been horrible so don't even consider this for games.
  • Pros: NewEgg offered to RMA the notebook due to the broken DVD drive. The issue is that the rails are loose and rock back and forth from left to right a good bit. This causes the DVDs to vibrate and sometimes skip. It also makes burning DVDs questionable. However I found out the problem is much less se...
  • Cons: Use some quality control please.

Great hardware, poor layout

Michael F., Newegg
24 January 2012
  • Pros: This laptop has some great hardware packed into a small form factor. The processor is very zippy (turbos to 3.0GHz!) and 6GB of 1333 RAM lets you run everything. The biggest plus: 3 USB ports! Most modern laptops have been skimping out on USB.
  • Cons: While the 3x USB ports are a great feature, Toshiba clearly didn't think out the single USB3.0 port. This is the only port on the right side of the computer, so naturally that's where you plug your mouse in. Suddenly, no more USB3.0. The keyboard keys are quite odd - sort of a mock Apple keyboard...

Does alot but could be better

Dgales4130, Amazon
8 November 2011
  • Summary: I was comparing the to the Lenovo T420s and because of my college budget was rather straped I spent the $770 on this laptop instead the $910. I wish I would of fork out the $140 for the lap top but before I tell why ... Let me start with the good.

Had to Return :*(

Jesrock, Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: I hate that I have to return the Toshiba Portege R835-P55X back to Microsoft. I love the size, the weight, the power, and the silence of the fan while doing regular computing. The reason I have to return it is because when I play flash-based games, it slows to a crawl, the fan gets very loud, and it...

Nice laptop with a few key features missing

TheCADman99, Amazon
13 September 2011
  • Summary: No bluetooth? Really? A BT dongle is the size of your thumbnail, and less than $10, and they couldn't include it internally? Come on Toshiba, $15 phones have bluetooth! Going from my goliath Vostro 1700 was a big change.

Would be a 5 star review but for dishonesty on Toshiba's part

GojiraST, Amazon
26 July 2011
  • Summary: This is a great laptop, thin, light, powerful. Sure it's missing a few higher end features like built-in bluetooth (I would rather have had that than the useless "wireless HDMI" feature), but overall the feature set is good. HOWEVER...
