Excerpt: I bought this laptop last year in February, since day one it has been problems. But since I had already bought it, Best buy, where I bought it from told me I needed to contact Toshiba directly. I did and had to bring it in to get a new hard drive and new wireless card put in. This was within the first week of buying it.
Excerpt: When this laptop is working it's pretty nice, fast, easy to type on , nice memory size...however ours is now being shipped off to Toshiba for the second time for the same problem! ..the power suppy connection is faulty! I bought it for my daughter last Christmas and within a month it began to not charge at times..it seemed like a short (I know not very techy speak) between the power cord and computer. Finally it wouldn't charge at all.
Excerpt: Toshiba Satelite L305 is the worst laptop in the world!!! It is very slow and it always crashes! Well, It is still a great laptop for the price though. This laptop was only like three hundred dollars. So I can say that it is a very valued laptop. This computer takes like five munites to start up and shut down which is a total drag. My laptop is so bad. I cant even install Windows Updates which is extremely critical for my laptop.
Buy this ONLY if you like interfacing with service people

I brought it back to Best Buy (Geek Squad). It took them 3 weeks to get it back to me (When I brought it in, they said it would take about a week), and the disk drive was blank [BTW, it only takes 2 minutes to replace the disk drive].
Summary: had this laptop for almost 4 years now... and almost everything is not original. i take good care of my stuff so i was surprised that i had to replace the monitor, keyboard, battery, plug port twice, and have had to get 4 hard drives. the monitor went completely black, the battery lasted 5 minutes on a full charge, the plug port stopped recognizing that it was plugged in and thus wouldn't charge... twice, and the hard drive has crashed 4 times.
