Terrible Value - even worse quality.

Grutza, Amazon
16 July 2012
  • Summary: First off, you would expect a computer that costs as much as $500 to have a lot of bells and whistles, and if not, at least be able to handle a challenge. Not this laptop though. This laptop costed $500, and if you compare the stats to anything equivalently priced, this gets blown out of the water.

Mouse Pad Ruins Product

Ernest Thompson, Amazon
17 March 2012
  • Summary: If you really wish to use this product, I suggest attaching a mouse to the laptop. The provided mouse pad area is way too sensitive/shotty.

Problem plugging in power cord

Jeff, Amazon
15 July 2011
  • Summary: We bought the Toshiba Sattelite L505 in 2009. The major problem we experienced had to do with plugging the power cord into the laptop. The plug-in became bent and eventually caved in, rendering it useless. We had the problem fixed twice by a technician; the third time we gave up.

Barely Audible Sound; Non-existent Support

Jeanne Bodine, Amazon
10 September 2010
  • Summary: I would not recommend this product if you need any type of customer assistance. The first problem I encountered was in controlling/disabling the sensitivity of the touch-pad. The support site is useless; the most recent product update is from March 2009.

Can't Hear if TV is on or Air Conditioner fan is blowing

Cassandra Woolfork, Amazon
18 July 2010
  • Summary: Speaker volume is entirely too low. Can't hear if there are any noises in room. Must turn off tv and air to hear, then you can barely hear the extremely low volume. Computer works well, but extremely disappointed with the weak speakers.

lousy repair service

meisjevanleuven, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this laptop a few months ago, and it worked just fine until recently when it started having problems recharging. I subsequently discovered that Toshiba does not have a helpful repair system. I called Toshiba twice.

great except

Aaron E. Houseknecht, Amazon
12 January 2010
  • Summary: I got the first laptop and everything was great out of the box. The second day I could not get a wireless connection and never got it again. I spent hours troubleshooting and with tech support. I sent it back and asked for it to be replaced. Amazon was great about that..so far.
