Summary: I bought this laptop 3 years ago and have had quite a lot of problems. For some one who doesn't enjoy replacing laptops often and wanted something to last, this wasn't the laptop for the job and I have a year by year list of the problems below. However in a nut shell it is a flimsy plastic-y shell and poorly build to last.
Summary: Bought this to replace a previous Toshiba Satellite (5 years excellent service).. What a disappointment - the Keyboard is very Flimsy feels like it will 'implode' with every Key Stroke. 'Windows' key failed to work after 3 weeks. Mouse Pad is not smooth as with the previous version and causes the Fingers to 'hesitate' and not give a smooth 'stroke'. Plus - is Windows 8 really the way 'Forward'?
Summary: I thought that as a toshiba it would be inventive, but there are certain things missing that I normally use like f7 and control 6 The letters and numbers could be brighter and the arrow keys at the bottom of the keyboard are too smal. It is not as fast as I thought kit might be, but it has a nice touh when your typing. I am slightly disapointed with it. I had a samsung before this, which I gave to my grandson, that was very good.
Summary: This laptop was just what I wanted spec and price wise..... unfortunately upon receipt the screen would flicker and switch off momentarily at random moments... not sure if I was was just unlucky or it's an inherent problem with these laptops..
Summary: Awful tinny speakers, flimsy construction, but the worst thing is the keyboard which bounces and keys extra characters if typing a little heavy. I had a previous satellite, work perfectly for 5 years, much better build quality, just but a little slow. I do not feel this is not a good replacement.
Summary: Die Tastatur ist - gelinde gesagt - eine Katastrophe. Sie: - ist mit "Luft" in das Gehäuse eingepaßt d.h. große Spalten rechts und links, in die Festkörper eindringen können - federt stark - ragt auf der linken Seite deutlich höher über das Gehäuse als rechts (möglicherweise ist die Tasttatur nicht vollständig eingerastet) Das an und für sich gute Gerät wird durch die Tastatur deutlich entwertet. Einem ersten Impuls folgend, wollte ich das Notebook retournieren.
