Don't Buy, Toshiba ranks last in service...

Crackerbox, Costco
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: So, i've used laptops since 1994. Anyway, I always purchased HP. Then I chose Toshiba a couple years ago. BIG MISTAKE. I'm NOT A SCHILL FOR any other company. After less than a year, the battery stopped charging (I NEVER used the battery, always A/C, but the monitor says 0%).

Good price, bad computer

Hirail, Costco
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: It's a good price point, which is the only reason I gave it 2 stars, but it is slow, constantly updating, forcing software, and repeatedly shuts down, causing a slow and painful startup. I wish I would have returned this when I had the opportunity.

Only buy if you have a PhD in Computer Science

  • Excerpt: I just bought a Toshiba Satellite and am very disappointed in the software and drivers. If you want a computer that works correctly out of the box, don't buy a Toshiba. Here are a few of the issues that I ran into: -The WIFI will not connect when coming out of sleep mode.

Time to switch to Mac!

David A. Franklin, Amazon
10 February 2016
  • Summary: Slow. The system bogs down and comes to a halt. I have spent a lot of money on Toshiba and other Windows clones. I think its time to go Mac.

The screen started flickering just a month after the warranty ...

Steve, Amazon
6 January 2016
  • Summary: The screen started flickering just a month after the warranty expired. Since it was out of warranty,Toshiba was going to charge an arm and a leg just to look at it. So I took it in to a local guy to get it looked at, instead.

Driver problems

Chris 71, Costco
14 December 2015
  • Excerpt: I really hate to leave a bad review but the laptop has display driver problems. The screen locks up then blinks and a display driver error message appears. I shouldn't see a problem in a new laptop specially one that costs over $1000... it will be returned. The rest of the laptop is awesome...

SLOW! Returned it and got MSI Instead.

AlexTheComputerGuy, Costco
5 December 2015
  • Excerpt: Slow for its configuration and freezes frequently. High resolution screen is good except that everything (specially icons) are super tiny and when you change screen resolution, the screen shrinks and wastes areas on left and right of monitor!

Some BIG drawbacks to this fast laptop

Ira Abrams, Amazon
25 November 2015
  • Summary: I got this for next to nothing--under $600 at Office Depot a year ago. Unfortunately, unpleasant experience has taught me that there are some BIG drawbacks to this fast laptop. You should consider another manufacturer. The pros are obvious from the description, starting with the i7 processor.

I really wanted to like this laptop

alejandro suarez, Amazon
30 October 2015
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this laptop, I was really exited to upgrade from a second hand 08 base MacBook that I bought in 2012, but that excitement quickly transitioned into disapointment. The only reason I still have it after a few months is because I've been too busy to do anything about it.
