Long lasting

  • Summary: I've had this laptop for over 3 years and its working great. I do not take care of it, and move it from different bedrooms, to and from work, etc, and I haven't had one problem with it. I'm very happy with the purchase.

Never again!

Keomi, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this Toshiba laptop 3 years ago. Since then, my screen started flickering then it just went completely white, now its doing a long flash that prevents me from doing my work properly or watch a movie in peace. My keyboard is not working anymore and it's just pushing off an odd heat now. Looking at other people's comments, we all have the same issues. This is an unreliable machine and I would NEVER buy another Toshiba device again. Horrible!

Dead after 3 years

Lam Son Vinh "LSV", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this Toshiba laptop 3 years ago and it worked great for 1.5 years. At the 1.5 year mark, the screen started to flicker and died not long after that. I had to hook it up to an external monitor and used it as a 'desktop' because I figured the repair cost was too much. It hobbled on for another 1.5 years then died completely. I think my experience with Toshiba's poor reliability is very common, judging from reading many others' similar experience.

I'd Skin Them Alive

Garret Maxwell, Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought one of these 'devices' from a Best Buy because another laptop required repair and I needed it to use a computer immediately for travel. I will say that Toshiba will not receive business from me again, although it takes two to tango. In this case, the partner is Windows Vista. If you are a generic user that doesn't need to use the laptop for major use, it may not be that bad.

Not Reliable

OccasionalAmazonShopper, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop in March 2009. It was fast, had good video and sound--for a month, then we had video problems. The faulty hard drive and defective LCD cable harness were replaced in warranty. Today, 11/02/2010, it would not power up. I will have to pay $425 for a motherboard replacement. When it worked, it worked well, but to have to replace the main board, hard drive and video cable within two years is ridiculus.

Great for a while but not made to last

littlewhitewolf, Amazon
16 October 2010
  • Summary: I've had this computer for a year and a half and was happy with it up until recently. I am a graduate student and when I first got this computer it had exactly what I needed and did everything wonderfully and in some ways still does. I was completely impressed by this computer. It was fast at completing all tasks when I got it and a year later after much usage and lots of space taken up it is still just as fast.

Great deal!

Texas Santa, Amazon

  • Summary: I spent endless hours looking for the best rated laptop for college. I found that the best reviews for any research is not on this site, but on the [...] site (real laptop reviews). I went to Best Buy & bought this same one for $[...] bucks less!! The quality is great & the battery will last for over 5 hours! The weight is not to heavy-about 5 lbs with the battery. I'm really happy overall with this model.

  • Summary: Purchased a refurbished one last year. and after a couple months, it is slow to a halt even when you just do some simple web surfing. It basically became totally unusable. Anyway, lesson learned. wont buy another refurbished laptop for the rest of my life.

It does its job

Giselle Bobo Morales "Proud Mommy", Amazon
13 September 2009
  • Summary: i purchased this from best buy back in may 2009, it's nothing special but if you need a laptop that will do its job, this is one i'd recommend. it's just hard to keep it clean since the keyboard is of a glossy finish. i use it daily and definitely enjoy it!
