not what I wanted

Baylee E. Wolff "cravin' reading", Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: First off I put in that I wanted a touch screen so I'm not sure why this was put in those search parameters, but I will take credit for that one. Now that I have had is for less than a year the fan makes so much noise that I can hardly here the sound coming out of it. I leave it only on hard surfaces and still it gets so hot that the fan kicks in and then I can't even pick it up sometimes its so hot on the bottom.

Do not buy it with Windows 8

ceya, Amazon
28 October 2013
  • Summary: I usually don't give bad reviews but you should be well informed before buying it. I expected better performance from this laptop. My previous (and older) Toshiba runs faster than this one. This laptop is suuuuuuper slow, it is extremely stressing to just open a document and it freezes when I open adobe reader. It is just slow in everything. When I try to browse, it takes forever to open explorer, and more to open a website.

Unexpectedly Horrible

Steve, Amazon
22 July 2013
  • Summary: I'm huge on Toshiba, I own a ton of Toshiba brand products- I was using a Thinkpad T61 from 2007 up until a few days ago (it finally kicked the bucket after 6 years of superb performance) However, this Satellite is truly tremendously horrible. It looks and feels like a toy- when you turn it on it takes a while to load the bloatware infested Windows 8- after about 10 days you'll begin to notice all of the pop-ups asking for you to buy the included trial software, it...

Terribly slow

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: IN REPLY TO THE REPLY FROM MANUFACTURER: This is no a wifi connectivity problem. It is connected. The speed test shows it is running at the same speed as my other computer. It is a processing problem. Web pages load slow, as do PROGRAMS (as I said in my O.P.). If there is a way to remedy this, I would love to know. If not, this is my VERY last Toshiba purchase (of any electronics). I purchased the C855 for my daughter, and we loved it!

Not bad, but HORRIBLE SOUNDING SPEAKERS!!!

S. Figueroa, Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: This budget laptop has some nice features for the money. It's got a good size hard drive (640GB) and 4GB of RAM, and it's reasonably fast. It also has a nice bright 15" screen. But I just can't get past the horrible sounding speakers. Now I know the speakers on most laptops are terrible. But these are by far the worst I've ever heard. The SRS Premium Sound HD option that comes with this laptop improves the sound SLIGHTLY.

Poor quality

Starclive, Amazon
9 November 2012
  • Summary: This note book showed rather poor quality. The bottom cover was not fitted correctly - I had to take a screwdriver to it to loosen the retaining screw then adjust and then refit. The DVD drive button is stuck and did not eject the drawer - has to be done from right click on drive. The computer is a 64bit machine but appears to come with 32 bit version of IE9 pre-installed - very difficult to sort this and had to give up and use Safari.

Hardware excellent with a major win 8 letdown

Msf, Amazon
1 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought mine after returning an identical HP model (which cost £100 less). The HP wouldn't accept any of my OCZ SSD'd - something that my previous HP laptop did. When I buy any pc , the first thing I do is burn the recovery discs , because I used to work in tech support for Sony vaio helpline , and I know how often this doesn't work. Discs (win 8 or Vista 2 as I like to call it ) I started the HP HDD recovery -massive failure.

Below average laptop

Julius, Amazon
5 October 2013
  • Summary: This is a really below average laptop. While the hard ware section is ok, over all it is quite poor. The computer has a really cheap plastic feel (the lid doesnt have a clip so if you try to move the laptop when the screen is down, it flaps around like a fish). The computer has TERRIBLE air circulation ... it shuts down constantly from overheating ( while being used on a table lifted up from the table to allow air to get under the laptop). Terrible power managment ...
