Summary: I have had problems with this computer since I bought it..software, hardware,crashing...you name it. Toshiba customer service is NOT helpful and to find some tech help where the person speaks English that you can actually understand is impossible. This review is no reflection on the seller...totally a dud Toshiba product..I would not recommend this product from my personal experience..I think I got a lemon!
Summary: I bought 3 of these at the same time just about a yr ago, one for each of my 2 girls and one for my husband, they all love the computers. I only give this product a 2 star as on all three the left hinge has given way, and they have to be extra careful to open the computer lid and I know it will be just a matter of time before the hindges give way and they will no longer be useable.
Summary: I received this item as a gift, it didn't take very long to set up, fifteen minutes or so. I've had this computer for about a two years now, after about seven-or so months the first screw came out of the right side of the computer, the left side followed about three months later, now the screen is basically held in place by wires. The disk drive worked for about a year and a half, but is now broken, like it wont open, no matter how hard I push on it.
Summary: I did the research on this laptop before ordering here on Amazon. The laptop (for some reason) was delayed a bit in arriving. That was not really an issue because it was not a gift for anyone nor was I really in a hurry for it. When it arrived I was a little disappointed in the feel of it. The quality of the laptop was not what I expected from Toshiba -- a name brand computer. My last laptop was a Dell.
Summary: Out of the box, it's clear that "dual core" means absolutley NOTHING with this thing! The multi-tasking is terrible because of lag. Performing 1 task is terrible because of lag! The touchpad's sensitivity/responsiveness is is horrible. Everything is all around slow, even at casual use. After installing updates & trying tweek settings, NOTHING IMPROVES!!! I bought this thinking I was going to finish setting up my website, after my primary laptop died mid-project.
Summary: I bought this item for my son 1 yr ago for his birthday, yesterday it suddenly won't start up. It loads up to the windows starting page and then nothing happens. We have tried safe start and recovery no luck. Can only imaging how much to get this fixed. I've had other satellites and was very happy with them, not sure what happened with this one????
