Summary: Very good economical laptop for students. not the best sound quality, battery life (+-2hrs) or adapters in the world but can surely handle any operation as with high end performance laptops priced in the 800-1000 range. Build quality is decent. It's very easy to carry around due to its light weight. In all very please with the PERFORMANCE.
Summary: I bought this Toshiba laptop, as is for parts or repair. This was bought to repair two computers of the same type, to make one good laptop. As it turned out, the problem that it had was a cold solder joint in the power plug, and was fixed by simply heating the cold joint with my soldering tool. This is why buying these types of products can be very good.
Excerpt: I had a Dell Laptop for approximatley 2 years and had nothing but problems with it. Everytime I would send it in for something to be fixed it would come back with something else wrong. When the battery finally quit working I did some research and purchased this Toshiba laptop instead. I have had no problems with this and have had it since the summer. I like the built in memory card reader on the laptop.
Excerpt: I Purchased my laptop back in February 2010. It ran really good for 9 months until it one day locked up and I turned the computer off and it would'nt power on. I then called Toshiba technical support and I think I called India on their toll free number. Needless to say the gentleman's accent was so thick and I could hardly understand him.
Excerpt: I've owned this laptop for a little while now..no major complaints! It's very durable, great feeling keyboard and big screen. I also like that it's streamlined and not too heavy. Good for lugging around. It moves pretty fast and I store a lot of photos with no apparent issues. It holds a charge for a couple of hours so it's good to use it "unplugged." It has WiFi capability, which I use and it works great!
dependable, reliable, meets your basic internet needs.

Excerpt: This Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976 was gifted to me when my home computer was stolen. I must say, the size was bigger than expected and the keys rose above the key board which, i thought it to be pretty "old looking". Has it proven me wrong! This laptop has been a life saver. It is easy to use and while i have had some adware problems, the service behind Toshiba's service center has been exemplirary. I would have easily given it a 5 star but held back on it...
toshiba satillite L series awsome value for the money!

Excerpt: i have had this laptop for just over two yaers and am still very pleased with it. it has tons of features when you go for the option of windows home premium software and has the option to up grade to 4gbs at only $90 - $120. i plan on purchasing this upgrade but not because i think the computer is lacking but because i like it so much i'd like to stick with it for a while so i want it to stay fast and not be obsolite in a few years.
Excerpt: This laptop is great when it comes to keeping things simple. Its easy to use even for those who aren't completely electronic savvy. Its also very light weight and easy to carry where ever you need it. I also find it fun to tweak the settings and it allows you to change many things to your likings.
