Summary: An absolutely terrible choice. I have owned several laptop computers, and this one is by far the worst. 1. Speakers so poor that you can't hear most YouTube videos without external speakers 2. Mouse freezes constantly 3. Computer froze incessantly, so we sent it back for repair.
Summary: I bought this computer in February 2013 and the hinges broke by August 2013. Toshiba refused to repair the hinges until the legal route was taken. Having to get a lawyer involved on a 6 month old machine to get them to back the 1 year warranty was is joke.
Summary: I bought one in Aug 2013, 3 weeks later returned it to Best Buy where I got it, hard drive dead. After some intense verbal exchanges I got them to swap me a new laptop same model. It is now Dec 2013 and the hard drive is starting to crap out again, getting pending sector count issues and the system...
Poor quality, fragile structure, very expensive, Windows 8 the worst windows. Stay away from this model.

Summary: I did buy a Toshiba model L855-S5244 last July 2012 @ TiguerDirect.com as NEW laptop. Since I started to use, it is not fastest as the processor i7 should be. After 3 months using it, the screen was broken easily. and the factory has not warranty for it.
Summary: Hard drive seems to have a problem. lap top was just 30 days old and was run very bad. I took it in as it was under warranty. I was told that is was a bad hard drive and that they have found that to be a common problem.
Summary: This is a general Toshiba policy review that applies to all Toshiba machines. As of this date, Toshiba will not cover the $25 shipping of their defective product to them on items in full warranty, unlike Lenovo and HP.
Summary: Cooling fan on laptop didn't work so it could only be on for a very short time, consequently had no real use out of it so cannot comment on how it works. Amazon is very good at giving refunds and taking goods back. 5 Stars for Amazon for excellent customer service.
Summary: To see what other options I was giving up I went to the Toshiba website and found a similar model and chose to go through the custom configuration process. As I was doing it I noticed that the processor shown in this item (i3-2348M) has a note that it requires the 1333MHZ memory.
