Summary: I have owned nothing but Toshiba laptops since my first purchase in 1989, and normally use them for five or six years before purchasing a new one. They've always been trouble-free until I bought this one. I should have known better--it was such a good price at Office Depot I fell for it. Within weeks, when I was living in a foreign country, the computer started crashing.
Summary: I bought this laptop for the 17inch screen. I am a photography student so therefore, I need a big screen to edit pictures on that is portable. I bought this laptop from Wal-Mart for around $800 after tax. I also bought a 2 year warranty along with it. This laptop was great for the first few months that I had it. Had no problems with it and than while I was at school, it crashed on me and I had to reset it to it's original settings.
Summary: Regardless of the make or model of Toshiba laptop you possess, good luck getting any action out of Toshiba customer no-service. After a solid month of dealing with them I have concluded that they have no intention of honoring their agreement, made that the time I purchased my laptop to repair or replace my laptop, a Toshiba Satellite L675 D,should it be defective. My screen started blinking and flashing less than one month after I purchased it.

Summary: 11 month old computer stopped working after a shutdown, was told the motherboard was broken. To fix this, I would be in as far as the cost of the computer. The tech told me not to buy a Toshiba next time. He said his research showed this is a common problem.
Summary: After owning several problem-free Compaq and Dell laptops over the past 15 years, I made the mistake of buying my first Toshiba, a Satellite L675D. I admit that I was enthralled by the 17" display. Big mistake. HUGE MISTAKE. Less than four months after purchase, my wife opened the laptop one evening and the screen showed a crack in the upper right corner.
Don't buy until Toshiba fixes their keyboard problems...

Summary: Excellent laptop, But, the keyboard skips letters typed and also inserts double letters of some typed. Typing is very frustrating. Toshiba hasn't fixed the problem in 6 months... they say they are on the verge of fixing it. There are a lot of people wishing they had never bought the computer... you may want to hold off until it is fixed or buy from a different brand.
