Summary: the battery on this thing lasts less than an hour. that's six weeks old and just checking email with nothing else open. the space bar rarely works and the keyboard sticks. it is fast. touchscreen is great.
Summary: I bought it as an audio production replacement unit. I like units that have separate line in/out plugs. This does. However, the laptop screen on the Costco website boasts a 1920x1080 1080p resolution. In actuality it's a 1366x768 720p display. Wouldn't be a big deal, but digital movies I own have issues during playback because they're HD downloads, not SD. The touch screen is nifty, but finicky & glaringly glossy. Great RAM set included.
Pros: comes with blu-ray player light-weight for it's wide-screen size back-lit keyboard separate line-in/headphone out jacks
Cons: poor quality built-in speakers usb ports too close to plug in 2 peripherals plastic base near rom drive is flimsy no ram upgrade possibility pre-loaded with extra junk apps slow boot due to pre-loaded apps battery doesn't last as long as claims
Summary: I bought this computer twice and called Toshiba for help - they told me to return the product for a new one. After two tries I gave up. Space bar on keyboard works about 80% of the time. I use my right thumb for the spaces and the right side of the space bar works only part of the time. The touch pad is tough to use as well. You really have to work to get the right and left mouse buttons to click. It is too bad because my last Toshiba lasted me 5 years.
Summary: I just bought this and my family were so excited only to be disappointed that this laptop can't connect to our home wifi. I contacted Toshiba and the device was reset for 5 hours but still have same problem. I'll s return this to warehouse & switch to a same model and hope the wireless card for the new laptop will work.
Summary: This Toshiba laptop would appear to push all the right buttons when It come to specifications, but realistically I would not consider this laptop for anyone who does content creation or even regular multimedia consumption for one simple reason; the screen is horrendous! Lousy viewing angles, Major color shifts with angle changes, Screen glare that can blind you, Resolution too low for modern 1080p media viewing, Fingerprints and smudges galore Photographers,...
Great computer but takes an eternity to boot up UGH!!
14 November 2013
Summary: The computer it self is awesome super fast, touchscreen, runs windows 8. BUT since the first day I had it it took 5 minutes to boot up. My 8 year old computer that it was replacing takes less time then that!!! Also it is 5 or 6lbs but that is my fault because I needed a CD drive and wasn't willing to pay extra for a light weight computer. (Don't judge me too harshly!
Pros: Very fast, lots of cool new features, touch screen, 3 usb ports, cd/dvd drive
Cons: OH MY GOD did I just die waiting for this computer to start-up?
Not as good as the T-Sat., s75-A7222 at Costco for 999
10 August 2013
Summary: There is a much better laptop offer that no one is reporting nor is there any reviews on. Toshiba offers a Satellite s75-A7222 for $999 at cost-co that has 16GB RAM and 1TB HDD. I don't understand why no one is raving about it.
