I Returned Mine

MSNGuy, Costco
9 November 2014
  • Summary: Pro-fast Con: Spacebar worked about 15% of the time. I have to backspace to add spaces all the time. I learned a way to whack the spacebar to get it to work up to 50% of the time. WiFi adapter would constantly drop its connection to the router at every place I used it. It drops connections in 15 min to 2 hours. It doesn't always want to reset its connection, making a reboot necessary.
  • Pros: see above

Not So Great

BrownDog, Costco
26 October 2014
  • Summary: Having always been an HP guy, I thought I would give Toshiba a chance. I am a photographer and use my laptop at least 8 hours a day. Ive been using this comouter for about two weeks now, but have already ordered another HP and when it comes in , the Toshiba is going back. The problms I have had: There is a slight yellow tint given to the display in order to warm things up a bit for the viewer, but that does not allow for true colors to come through, and I need to it to...

  • 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.
  • Pros: impressive speed feature at a good price.
  • Cons: a big downer for its wireless card.

Could never be a contender!

3rd I, Amazon
26 June 2014
  • 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!!

btvscancer, CNET
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

drainwy, CNET
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.
  • Pros: yah, that right
  • Cons: yah, that's right
