I previously owned a Satellite that was an earlier model and LOVED it. This was a huge disappointment

Summary: If I could give a lower rating, I would. The computer runs at an impossibly slow rate. It takes about 10 minutes just to check one e-mail if you opt to use something other than Internet Explorer.The only software I have loaded besides Windows 8.1 is Malware Bytes which should ultimately speed things up but to no avail. The keyboard sticks and is difficult to type with as well. I previously owned a Satellite that was an earlier model and LOVED it.
Summary: The mouse freezes constantly. I looked up this problem, and seems that a lot of people have this happen to them, no fix from Toshiba. The computer crashes frequently, and it seems to be related to the memory. I have owned several brands of laptops over the years (IBM, HP, Dell). This is my first and last Toshiba.
Summary: This is the worst laptop on the face of this earth. I got it when it first came out for 500 and got it like others based on reading reviews. I've had it for about 2 yrs not even using it heavily at all. And it's already turned into a piece of crap. It takes like 20 min to boot up. And to open simple web pages it'll take what seems like to be forever. When I'm trying to print something off adobe it takes over 10 min. It's ridiculous.
Summary: If, you want a computer that stalls on the most basic tasks then, this is the computer for you. I loved my last Toshiba however, I would not recommend this one to anyone. Get one with much more power!
Great price on eBay for product-Keyboard makes it hard to type fast
10 December 2013
Summary: It works fine, comes with Microsoft office 10 which I needed after I had to send off my PC, laptop & mac to get cleaned due to network issue so it was great in a pinch. They keyboard is not like my Satellites past since I go fast so to me this is the biggest downfall as it seems to miss keys if you go to fast. It's fine the price was great on eBay from a good seller and it is a good back up to have. Recommend as back up or for printing.
Summary: The hard drive failed in this in less than 4 months - completely unacceptable for a brand new computer. I should start out by saying I am a computer programmer and know my way around a computer. Windows 8 wasn't a problem - sure it was an adjustment as I hadn't used it but I adjusted. The computer itself is another story. After the hard drive failed I did some research and discovered this is a very common issue with this particular computer.
Summary: Slow, clunky, and constantly stalling. Windows 8 takes up over 50% of ram out of the box without anything else installed or running. I upgraded the memory to 16 gig, and that has helped a little, but the CPU is still too slow to handle a browser with 3 tabs open on pages that don't even have Flash. Movies stutter, pages load slow, page scrolling and typing buffers all the time.
Summary: I was looking for a Toshiba laptop with an integrated numeric keyboard. I found the Satellite C875D-S7225 on sale at Office Depot and I've had this for almost a year. Turns out I am very disappointed in this laptop. It's actually slower than the seven year old Compaq I replaced, but most of all the keyboard is terrible.
Summary: I must say when I saw the box my laptop came in I was expeting a heavily used laptop. But this Is truly all I need in a laptop right now. Fast, brand new(notbeven a scuff mark) attractive with lots of storage. Cool.
