Summary: This was my first laptop. I will never buy another Toshiba laptop computer and I don't recommend anyone else do so either. I purchased this laptop from Best Buy and before it was 12 months old (about 5 months actually) the hard drive crashed (in warranty). Sent it back to the factory. Loooong wait.
Summary: I too bought my A665-S5170 in February of 2011- my laptop is now 44 days out of warranty- I got it from BestBuy which of course they just wash there hands of the whole Hard Drive crashing- my issues also started in December as well- I took it to an independant repair shop- for about $200.00 I'm...
Summary: Easily the worst computer I've ever owned. Toshiba decided to pre-load so many programs which slows down the entire unit. I don't even have many programs installed, yet it still locks up on continually. Please don't make the same mistake I did on this one....
Summary: I haven't had any problems others' have been writing about. The laptop has never had a system failure or any software problems. However, I wouldn't recommend purchasing this model unless you don't mind using a different keyboard, but to me that defeats the purpose of a laptop.
Summary: Purchased this Toshiba in February from BB. After a week had to take it back for a new one as the volume button was stuck on a constant beeping sound and would not stop unless you hit mute. New laptop ran well for a month then immediately became bogged down.

Summary: I purchased the Toshia A665-S6094 from Best Buy in late Sept 2010. In mid March the laptop had to go back to Toshiba because the whole right side of the keyboard stopped working and the touchpad would stop working correctly after a few hours of use.
Summary: This item is no longer being sold new online (at least on Amazon) so I'm writing this review for people who may be able to purchase this in-store. I recommend you do NOT buy it. I bought this laptop from Best Buy in February 2011, just like another reviewer did.
Summary: This is my last and final toshiba. It has been nothing but trouble. Turning it on to Windows usually results in going directly to BIOS. Then play around to find out what I need to do to open Windows. cannot shutdown or restart without receiving fatal errors.
Is there a negative star rating? That's what it needs.
