Summary: I bought this unit to replace a defective one of the same make and model. eBay is great for that! This was a great experience. Not only did this unit work really well but I was also able to fix the unit it was replacing! This laptop performs well considering it is not this years model.
Summary: This is a very fragile laptop. The keyboard is marginally responsive. The touchpad is extremely buggy. Even when three feet away the WiDi loses the connection. Worst of all, it comes with a two year warranty, but when you call Toshiba they say your one year phone service has come to an end.
Summary: Had problems with it twice while under warranty. Took three tries before they fixed it properly the second time. Now it's broken a third time and the warranty is expired. Toshiba used to be good but not anymore. Going with a different brand now.
Summary: UPDATE: 4/1/2013 Computer feel off the sofa at the charging receptical and its busted, receptical and bottom plate are a part of the motherboard, it would cost as much as a newer laptop to repair...this one is junk...looks nice though..shiney garbage.
Summary: Lots of nice extras, good battery life. This computer has a Blu-ray player, back-lit keyboard, a Hybrid Drive (part ssd part standard 7200 rpm HDD), great sounding Dolby speakers, WiMax, push2TV, and the Toshiba Eco Utility is really nice.
Summary: The keypad was non-responsive on arrival (twice), called Toshiba, after 4 hours on the phone for an out of the box product they said they will not honor warranty. Returned both products which were defective out of box, and bought HP. Will never touch Toshiba computers gain.
Defective unit! Sent twice to be repaired at Toshiba depot and returned with the same problem! Terrible customer service!

Summary: I bought this Satellite E305 on August, 2011. Since the first days of usage, I noticed that the computer would shut down spontaneously. After studying the problem a little more, I figured out that those shutdowns only happened when the computer was coming from either a hibernation or sleep modes.
Summary: Toshiba Satellite E305-S1995 14" Laptop (Intel Core i5-2410M Processor, 6 GB RAM, 500 GB Hard Drive, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) by Toshiba Practically new, only used for 3 months until college student graduated.
Summary: I have had this laptop for almost two years now, and I can tell you that it was worth every penny. I bought this as a Black Friday deal for only $600, which was a steal considering the feature set of this laptop.
