THIS IS THE GREATEST BEGINNERS OR STUDENT LAPTOP WHY BECAUSE ITS EASY TO USE-THE KEYBOARD IS EASY TO SEE-ITS GOT A 500GB HARDRIVE- THE 2 GIGABYTES OF MEMORY CAN BE UPGRADED TO 8 GIGABYTES AND ITS NOT THAT HARD TO INSTALL IT .AND HERES HOW ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TAKE THE BATTERY OUT FIRST -THEN TURN IT OVER FIRST PUT A TOWEL DOWN BEFORE YOU TURN IT OVER TO PREVENT SCRATCHING-THEN REMOVE ALL THE SCREWS IN THE BOTTOM T-THEN VERY SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY REMOVE THE BACK AND INSTALL THE MEMORY NOTE DO NOT FORCE IT-THEN CAREFULLY PUT THE BACK ON AND INSTALL THE SCREWS AND YOUR DONE.YOURE WELCOME..ON THE HARDRIVE IT CANT BE UPGRADED HOWEVER TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE YOU CAN PURCHASE AN EXTERNAL 1 OR 2 TERRABYTE WHICH IS MORE THAN ENOUGH SPACE NOTE IF PORTABILITY IS THE ISSUE YOU WANT TO GET A USB POWERED NOT AN AC OUTLET ONE

Excellent - why pay any more for another.

Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

At first glance it may appear bare bones, but why pay more for features you are never going to use. I should know as I have been using computers since ther 1980's. The memory is upgradable to 8 gb but I only use 4gb and am not lacking. The VGA port (which many many laptops do not have) is the main reason I bought this so I can use my home monitor. Don't blow $400 and up on something that is unnecessary. Trust me.

I am used to Windows XP so I am still getting used to this computer. So far it is a challenge that I am enjoying. I was rather disappointed that it did not have a CD/DVD player, although I did purchase a DVD Writer that seems to be sufficient for my use. My aatings are a bit premature in that I have not used the battery system as yet

This is my 3rd Toshiba, they last long. The battery life is pretty decent but once your computer gets old, you have to be charging it. It won't hold charge but for an hour or so. The charger is the big problem. I've had to buy several through the years. But I trust Toshiba for great computers and always return to them.

I have been undecided about purchasing a laptop. Then I saw the deal for this one online and couldn't pass it up. It's not the laptop giving me problems but 8.1 sure is. Purchased 8.1 for Seniors and once I figure it out things should be smooth. I like the size of this laptop and the features for what I will use it for which is recipes, newsletters, and POGO games.

I bought this for my daughter to replace a Toshiba we have had since 2006. I had hoped the 2GB of RAM would be sufficient for internet use, but it was not. I upgraded to 8GB of RAM and it works fine on the net now. I have not taken the time to tailor the automatic updating so sometimes when you turn it on you almost can't use it right away because the update processes are running and it takes 100% of the CPU, which Toshiba really ought to test more thoroughly. Once it has stopped checking for updates this machine works pretty well. I prefer the older style setup where the laptops would ask if you want to check for updates so you can say yes when you know you can just leave the computer alone for a few minutes while it does it's thing. I have clocked the internet speeds upload and download and it gets the same results as my Lenovo that has a more powerful processor. I know this is more about my internet speed, but I was curious and checked anyway. Videos now load quickly and bringing up multiple applications is no longer a problem with the increased RAM.

I like everything about the laptop, except Window 8.1. I was not able to use the computer as expected during a recent vacation to Mexico. I visited 4 cities and I was not able to log on, due to problems with Windows 8.1, not being compatible with the Wi-fi networks in Mexico. That was very disappointing, as I made the purchase to be able to stay in contact with family and friends. I have Windows 7 on my desktop and I am very pleased with it. I don't know if there is a fix or a patch to correct the problem for international use of this computer.

What do you REALLY need? After seeing no CD drive and no battery release, I had a feeling this was a BASIC LIMITED Model. I just about passed this off. But, I was only looking for a laptop to email, browse and a little youtube. For this use, I don't need a CD for jamming my HD full. When I work with pictures, I use a thumb drive or external HD. If I really need a CD I will get an external. My only real negative is 2GB MEM??? Otherwise it works and uninstall norton of a less resident security suite. Not bad at all really.

I have always used a Desk Top PC and received the C55-B5299 Laptop as a gift. While I appreciate the thoughtfullness of the giver my only complaint is that this model does not come with a built in CD/DVD recorder/player; which is a must in my world. Unless you want to be limited and back the system up on a thumbdrive and add programs on line only you will need to purchase a USB CD/DVD recorder/player. Had I purchased a laptop myself I would not have chosen this model; but one with a built in recorder/player as well as programs such as MS Office, etc...already installed. This PC may have cost less; but in the long run will be more expensive by having to purchase these items as extra

The two things I dislike the most about this laptop: 1. No hard-disk activity light. Sometimes I can't tell if the software is hung, or is busy. 2. The battery is not easy removable. This is a significant problem because there are times when software hangs and the only way to restart the computer is to remove power (including the battery). I imagine the average, less technical owner would have to sit there for 4 hours waiting for the battery to drain. The battery can be removed after removing two screws. But, the average person won't know that. In my opinion, it is inexcusable to have no HD light nor a hardware reset button (if the battery isn't intended to be removed). I appreciate that these features would add to the cost. But, some features should be considered basic and essential. The lack of these two features *will* create unhappy customers. I replaced Win 8.1 with Xububtu. It works perfectly. I like that Toshiba makes drivers easy to download, making it fairly easy to downgrade to Win 7. My last Toshiba lasted over 5.5 years using it 6 hours a day every day.

Only has 2 meg ram (advertised) and NO DVD but works fine as long as you accept that. I took out the 2 GB ram and put in an 8 GB. Runs fine. I also own the next one up for 100 more, you get 4GB ram and DVD, and that works well for 100 more. Of course, adding ram is a task as there is no panel, must remove entire back. But, it was easy.

I think this laptop is good for people that just like watching movies or listening to music. If you want to play games or search the web, its a no-go. Even when this laptop was brand spanking new, going on the internet, or playing games is just an awful experience because of how slow it is ( I have virus protection so its not slow because of a virus). But if you just want to pop a movie or album into the disk drive, then this computer is for you. But if you like searching the internet, or playing games, you are very limited to what you can do.

Overall rating: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5

I purchased this product because my previous laptop was a wonderful product- efficient, quick, easy to use and is still a viable computer at 8 years of age. This product is slow- maybe because it has so many pre-loaded apps (?) and constantly gives me error messages about using too much memory (with only one app open at a time???) Another trick it is good at is to give an error message "this website is not responding- need to recover". No other electronic device in this house has the same problems so it is not a connectivity issue.

POSTED BY: Smuget

This Toshiba can be bought as a great low cost computer, if you just plan to use a web-browser most of the time. The computer comes with 2GB of DRAM, just enough to operate the web-browser efficiently. There is no CD/DVD and if a external CD/DVD is connect it is designed not to operate with this OS; the only way around this is the installation of 3rd party CD/DVD drivers across the internet. This computer's Windows OS is not friendly and wants to make money for the software company. Toshiba should not have allowed Windows 8.1 to be put on their computers!

Disappointment is all that really needs to be said. Sorry but the visual is very very poor along with the speed and how it freezes up on you at every turn. This is not one I would recommend for anyone who enjoys the use of the internet. If you have the money to pay a little more for a laptop then I would definitely agree with doing that. It's the difference between buying a Motorcycle to a Moped. Not at all happy...

Slow and Low Quality Labtop

Waste of time and money. I have been using a Toshiba Satellite laptop L555-S7929 for years and I love it. It is fast, convenient and fabulous. But it is also very well-used, so I decided to purchase the Toshiba Satellite C55-B5299 Laptop. This one is so slow and frustrating to use. It is cheaply put together and I feel like I am using a toy rather than a business machine. I also HATE Windows 8! I am going to give it to my children as I waited to long to attempt to return it.

I bought 3 of these laptops at once due to the price. I only wanted something that I could easily go on the internet and navigate. So far, I have had to bring one back for a hardware failure, one has had issues with wi-fi connection, and overall they are slow. I expected way too much for the price. This computer isn't a complete failure, but I would not buy it again.

At first the laptop seem to work great, but as time as gone by it seems to be getting worse. First off, there is no where to plug in headphones; the laptop is freezing, the trackpad has also been freezing. Forcing to shutdown the computer and restart which seems to fix the issue for a day or two and then needs to be restarted.

I have used and worked on toshibas for a long time and when this was bought for me it is for school. it is the biggest piece of garbage I've have ever used. I've had to disable and re enable the touch pad in the device manager several times because it stops working and no i am not just turning it off with the function. In the first week of use with less than 20% of the HDD used it locks up and needs to be hard rebooted to unlock it. The norton installed on it was so annoying I had to download a removal tool to get it out. over all your product quaility has gone to garbage i would return it but it was bought for me so i have no receipt once school is over i will taking a 12 gauge shot gun to this machine I'll email you all the video.

I cannot begin to say how much this laptop frustrates me. I am really good to my laptops and treat them well. I bought this laptop because I wanted something, reliable for my classes. My other laptop was having power cord problems. This is a basic, basic model, for people who are novice with computers. First, its slow. Second, it has cursor problems, if it updates or there is too much traffic, you cannot use the mouse pad. Third, you cannot have more then 1 applications going on at the same time, as this will lead to it slowing down. Try having Word document open and the internet browser, you have no idea how slow this machine is. This is my first Toshiba laptop and I am not happy with it. First and last time.

Worst Computer I've Ever Had

Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

I've had my computer for about a year now but when I first received this computer I tried writing a review about it; unfortunately, when I wrote my first review this site said there was an "Error" when trying to post. Now I am back to express my frustrations. For starters this computer is slow in general, when I close the computer it exits out of all of my open windows, there aren't that many apps available in the store (probably doesn't have to do with Toshiba), and let me not forget that my movies do not play on this computer because the player is constantly skipping.

Nightmare

POSTED BY: luvantique , Omaha, NE
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

I've had this computer now for nearly 6 months and it has not grown on me. It's a nightmare to use on several counts. The spring tension under the keys is so light that even the slightest surface touch activates the key, making it nearly impossible for a typist to type without constant backspaced corrections. Sometimes (and always unpredictably# the lightest wrist pressure below the keyboard will change screens #for reasons I still cannot fathom#. A different brushing touch may erase the last line or two that you have typed. But the problem that keeps me cursing the salesman is Windows 8.1. He talked me into buying this monstrosity over my objections by convincing me that it included Windows 7 functionality. Just barely. The filing system is so irrational that it makes finding anything you've saved difficult to impossible #and I mean literally impossible on some occasions#. It makes no logical sense at all. Instead of saving time, this thing wastes a huge part of my working time by making me have to attempt to navigate the unnavigable. To make matters worse, sometimes just brushing the case with any part of your anatomy will throw the whole thing randomly into Windows 8, and good luck trying to get back out of that. It's a functional nightmare that I'm pretty much stuck with. Highly UN-recommended. For the record, I've been using computers for both work and recreation since the days when the only user interface was Command Line, so I'm no stranger. #and one more: if you see pound signs instead of parentheses, it's because either the website or this computer would not take the input of those characters.)

I've always had Toshiba laptops and have never had problems, but this one is terrible. Web pages freeze, I'm always having to refresh or start over and usually I just get frustrated and shut it off. The saying is true you get what you pay for. Very low cost for a laptop but also very low performance if any performance at all.

This laptop was so miserably slow out of the box that I had to return it and get something else. The processor and Ram are just not enough for even the casual user. I wasn't using it for Gaming, or anything really intense, just some Quickbooks and typical browsing. Noticed that the power connector design is the same horrible setup they had on the last two toshibas I had bought years ago. Cord connection gets very loose over time. I'd stay away, this is at best a chromebook with a hard drive.

This laptop doesn't have enough RAM to run Windows 8.1, so I don't understand why it was sold with that version of Windows. This computer has extremely limited utility, and it frequently stops responding. I'm going to give it to my mother. Maybe she can use it to check her e-mail. That's about all it's good for.

I've been doing PC builds or reviews for a long time. Value is a great motivator in making something, and this misses the mark. Too slow, under performing, and when I dig into documentation on the specs, this is horrible. It would be better served to find a machine from 2010 that has the exact same specifications, and buy that. The performance will be far better in a four year old laptop.

Very slow processor and the third one we bought has already gone back to the factory for hardware issues within 30 days of owning. Now I know why it was so inexpensive; too good to be true.
