Summary: I bought this laptop over 4 months ago and have been using it daily since. It's a good solid laptop for internet and Microsoft Office. It's ok for entertainment. Pros: - big screen with good picture quality, not the best but not bad - load up with good speed - got what you need for the basics Cons: - speakers are not that great, but works if you are sitting up close to the laptop - keyboard feels cheap - heavy I wouldn't buy this as a portable entertainment laptop to...
Summary: Although I am not very computer "literate", and I once bought a computer book for "dummies" which I didn't understand, the Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7005 is easy to use. I have encountered 2 problems, however. The first problem, which the computer may not be faulted for, is my inability to easily use it "wirelessly". I've been successful using it wirelessly only a couple of times, even after buying a new router.
Summary: Just as advertised, this is a nice laptop. Beautiful large screen, fast, and no issues so far. The only things I would nit-pick about is that the keyboard keys have a sort of cheap plastic look & feel to them. Especially as compared to my work-supplied Dell laptop. It was a bit annoying that the supplied Norton antivirus was only a 30 day trial subscription. But of course that was as advertised as well. But for the money I am satisfied with this laptop.
Summary: I bought this laptop three years ago as a desktop replacement for college. It's given me, quite literally, no trouble at all. It's a little antiquated now, especially with only 3 GB of RAM. I'm planning on having one more GB added soon. But it's been very reliable. It doesn't overheat, it's not too heavy, and nothing has broken.
Summary: I love this laptop, I had to replace my old Dell Inspiron 6000. This one's so much faster, it's got a decent video card (not hardcore for gamers but enough to watch media with real well and even can handle some top divx10 games with really low fps in the low setting), which is why I chose this laptop over a bit faster intel pentium's out with a bit smaller screen for around the same price range.
Summary: Had to return the initial laptop because of dead pixel(s). RMA was fast, painless and free. Unfortunately, the replacement also had the same problem- but not as obvious- so we kept it. After removing all the trial junk that comes with a new laptop, am very happy with the purchase and price. Screen is huge, widescreen and bright. Would def buy again- but watch out for those dead pixels!!
Summary: This laptop has impressed me so far. Not only is it inexpensive, but it seems solidly built. It is very quiet. The screen is huge and looks great. It is powerfully enough for all of my home PC needs. The only 2 negatives are the weak sound quality (not unexpected in a laptop) and the touchpad buttons, which make a noticeable clicking noise when you press them. If you can live with those minor annoyances, I recommend considering this laptop for your home PC.
Summary: I purchased this laptop as a replacement for my 5+ year old Dell Inspiron. Having recently had some bad experiences with Dell, I decided to try a Toshiba. It's a good laptop for someone who isn't a road warrior-- both the size and relatively short battery life make it less than ideal for lots of travel. Both of these problems stem from its very large screen (big screens tend to consume a lot of power), which is its biggest selling point.
