This is the first computer that I have owned just for myself and it is excellent . Very easy to use and it has all of the bells and whistles i need, not to many. I love the built in camera for Skyping. This great new computer actually helps me get on line more at home, I love it.

I like the bigger keys, seems to be a good value. Seems to operate smoothly. I only have 1 issue at this point, there are several commonly used keys that don't work on the 1st touch/strike when all the other letters show the 1st strike. I find that I have to go back and correct a lot of spelling, I have to proof read everything - taking more time to complete tasks. It will probably turn into a warranty issue. Other than that it seems smooth. I don't fully understand the OS, I like Vista more. Would I buy an upgraded later unit (in a couple years) in this brand? Yes, I would. I like the laptop, just not sure about the OS. Thank you for having a good unit for a very affordable price, I thought I was going to spend more money. Thanks, Jonesy.

I love the Toshiba C55-A5120 Laptop. I love that you have added a number pad. Five years ago I bought a Toshiba Satellite L450 and loved it. The only problem I have with the new Toshiba is the keyboard. 20% of the time the key that is pushed doesn't register and I have to go back and correct the spelling. I looked at the L450 and the keys are slightly raised up where the keys on the new Toshiba are all flat. I think if they were slightly raised it would be easier to type. Other than that the Toshiba is tops in performance. My L450 is still going strong. My husband now uses it and has given up on any other product. The laptop is fast and easy to use. My programs run flawlessly. My husband is a computer techie and you have convinced him that Toshiba is the way to go. For the price, you can't buy a better laptop.

I love it!

One thing that caught my attention was how good the battery life was. I love that the battery lasts for about 5-6 hours. I don't keep mines plugged in all the time because I don't have the need to and I don't overcharge neither. I like how light it is and easy to carry. It's lightweight and durable! I love the sound quality and the picture. It is very fast for it to have Windows 8.1 too. It could use some more storage though. But I love my Toshiba!!!!!

This is my 1st laptop. The old one was a desktop and had xp on it and I decided to get a new computer. I had excellent recommendations from folks about the Toshiba laptops so I purchased one. At first is was hard to get use to but I am making good progress. I like the 8.1 windows. My only problem is the Toshiba downloads and not knowing if there is security. I am working on it. For the price I am happy with my decision and your product.

I got my laptop, as I am due for surgery on my hip and I assumed the laptop would be easier for me- bring the computer to me instead of me going to the desk top.

I have always used Toshiba Laptop because of the reliabilty of them. I have found one issue with the C55 series. When you swipe for right to left on the touch pad, the right menu bar appears and at times can be a bit annoying. Not sure if this is a built in feature of this series. Overall, very dependable Laptop.

Finally had to buy a new laptop. The last Toshiba Satellite lasted 10 years and is still functional. The new one is terribly hard to use. The Windows 8.1 has a mind of it's own and does what it thinks you want done. It thinks you know how to use the computer, but in many cases this is not true. I want to be in control, not the computer. Too much games, shopping software on this machine, I need to do work, not play. And just try to delete the games, shopping apps, won't happen easily. Machine (Toshiba) is always trying to sell me something I don't want or need, it's wasting my time.

I needed to replace a 6-year-old laptop that had been very good until the video card went out. I saw this on a retailer website and decided , based on listed specs, it would do the job for which I need. The laptop is very capable for a budget machine. My only real complaint is the sound as it is terrible. You can improve the sound slightly by manually adjusting the equalizer.

I think this model needs a better cpu and a blue ray drive. My battery life is great considering the fact it is new. I would have preferred less bloatware and windows 7 instead of windows 8.1 . I prefer Toshiba Laptops as a brand because they are made a little better than the last Dell I had. Toshiba Laptops have always been pretty reliable in the past including the antique, steel grey, thick brick, tecra model I had. The thing I don't like about this particular laptop is the lid cover design. It has a small line texture that doesn't make it easy to wipe down and it shows what would have been a simple scuff like it was a major scratch. I like a smooth finish there. When I got mine I also had to update the dvd drivers to make the dvd button function properly. It is great for someone just learning to use a computer or someone who doesn't do online gaming.

I got this computer as a replacement for a tablet that I had that was broken. I picked it due to the price. I am not very educated in computers and what all you can do with them but I love it for what I do use it for. I did have a problem with it which was not the computer's fault but mine and had to call for help. The man that helped me was very nice and helpful and corrected the problem. He was very patient with me and my lack of knowledge.

Very good price for product, and the laptop itself is great except for a pretty lame keyboard where many keys won't work without a pretty hard tap! Leads to lots of proofreading and going back to fix copy. I also hate Windows 8, but that is not fault of laptop. Other than keyboard, it seems to work great after my son-in-law fixed Windows 8 so it wasn't geared for a tablet, but works for a laptop.

The hardware is good (uses AMD rather than Intel). The screen has excellent resolution. The battery life is very good. It has the connections I need. I was looking for a well made laptop with Ethernet port at a reasonable price and this was it. The really bad part is Windows 8.1. It is not intuitive. It is hard to navigate. It seems to restrict the user rather than help. If I find a way, I will revert to an older version of windows.

I got this computer to replace a really Old Friend. My old system support was discontinued by Microsoft, so I upgraded.....I thought! My Toshiba is a nice machine except with the difficulty I experience opening the CD compartment. I think that Toshiba attempted to hide the "open" button. My real frustration lies with Windows 8.1. To me, this OS is awful, really awful. I do not have a Smart Phone, and I don't do APPS!!!!! To be able to navigate this system in order to do simple tasks has taken me hours and hours of experimenting, reading HOW TO stuff and experimenting again. I keep a notebook so that I can repeat operations.

This laptop has great performance for basic day to day usage. It is not a workhorse, but it does get the job done. The processor is better than I expected for the price. I'm using the Satellite C55D running Windows 8.1. First time I have used AMD E2 processor, hey, but it is better than previous experiences I've had with AMD type processors.... freezes a lot less and that's pretty good for me....I can make the best of Intel shutdown. Overall it is pretty nice laptop if you're not planning on doing too much gaming with it. It's a large enough screen to work with nicely, it is not too heavy and the ports available shame higher priced models.

I use a laptop for music playback during concerts through FOH PA. This Toshiba laptop does not have a line out, only headphone out. The music track playback was not a clear as I demand. Performance was fine. But I do not care for the new Windows 8. My reasons would take too long to explain. I prefer Windows 7.

Good laptop, TERRIBLE speakers

POSTED BY: stereoman1980 , Indianapolis, IN
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

The computer is thin, plastic and lightweight, so I am very careful with the display when opening it. The keyboard is nice and feels responsive. The display is good, bright, and colorful. The processor does the job and is pretty fast (although I am not using a lot of high graphics programs or playing games on it). THE MAIN PROBLEM IS WITH THE SPEAKERS; THIS HAS HORRIBLE SOUND. I didn't buy it to be a high fidelity stereo, but I do expect music and videos to sound good. The sound is thin and tinny. My phone sounds better, much better. Sadly, this is the main reason that I could not recommend this model to a friend. I have not returned it because I already had a lot of stuff on it by the time I figured out how terrible the sound is.

I needed a computer for basic tasks to replace an my old laptop that was running XP. Compared to my old laptop this one is a great improvement in speed and storage. I have installed Dragon for to help with my word processing and is working fine. I have a concern with the audio, there is no adjustment in tone only volume. So far I really have no complaints.

Good performance/price product

First, keep in mind that this is laptop's price is in the lower end. Thus you shouldn't expect that it will have high performance like those in the $600 or above range. That being said, its performance/price ration is good. It has 4 core although at a pretty low 1.3 Ghz. The 4GM memory can be problematic since some range are reserved by OS (thus not all 4GB are available to user program. But this is not unique to Toshiba). On top of that, some memory is reserved by the GPU which means GPU will compete with user for memory and its bandwidth. But my biggest issues are the following: 1) the speakers are tiny ones that produce terrible sounds; probably the worst in all laptops I have gone through (including 3 Toshiba products in the past). 2) the wireless performance is not optimal even with latest drivers (while I can get 2 to 5 times better performance on my Lenovo x201) in the same spot). 3) it does not bundle the AMD chipset driver and the disk performance suffers until I downloaded and installed the AMD ACHI driver. Still, sometimes it can be not responsible in some extended time when doing disk intensive I/O. 4) No TPM. Thus cannot BitLocker to utilize the HDD self-encryption! 5) This is not Toshiba's problem but Microsoft's - I decided to install ClassicShell to get the familiar Start menu back. (Not ready for the Windows 8.1's GUI yet. ;-)) In conclusion, this is not a bad laptop for beginners. You get what you have paid for.

Best Computer with Worst Operating System

It's a shame what Microsoft did to a perfect Windows 7. I was so discouraged that I was going to have a Windows 7 installed on my new Toshiba. That is until I took it to PC-Quest, and a representative set it up to somewhat operate like a Windows 7. I would gladly pay more money to have an operating manual that is hand held

I have connected my laptop to my WIFI and for some reason it wont let me go to certain websites - especially FACEBOOK which I love playing my games on there.. and I had to try to restore the setting after only having it 2 weeks - when I shouldn't have to do that. You would have figured they would have gave you a back up disk or something with it when you buy it but they don't.

I don't find the Windows version 8 to be very user friendly. Otherwise it's a good buy for the price as you cannot buy a computer without version 8 on it. The Toshiba laptop is a good product.

Poor Sound Quality

POSTED BY: SoundingOff
Overall rating: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5

Sound quality is much poorer than the old Satellite it replaced. Sounds like a speaker in a tin can. Connecting external speakers sounds like a speaker in larger tin can. These same speakers provided great quality sound with the Satellite it replaced. But now, no base tones, no depth to the sound. It's like listening to headphones from three feet away. I would be very pleased with the Satellite if the sound were better. Other than the poor sound quality, it is a great laptop. Unfortunately, even when connected to good external speakers, the Toshiba does not deliver adequate sound quality, preventing enjoyment of many of the intended uses that drove the purchase. Could Toshiba provide a downloadable fix to this audio problem?

I am very unhappy with the performance of my NEW laptop!!!! It is truly slower than MOLASSES!!!!! It doesn't keep up with anything!!! Just general browsing on the internet, it takes FOREVER!!! I bought it because my older computer had windows XP on it and was told it was outdated and no longer secure. So we decided to get a laptop - wish I had my OLD CPU still able to work. As OLD as it was - it was still 10X faster than this laptop!!!!!!!!

Bought the new computer. Installed my own anti virus software, and when I ran it. Brand new mind you, the results were 325 virus'. That is not a typo. I had the hard drive reformatted, and only the programs I wanted put on it. I can't even write a review without Toshiba trying to mine me for more personal data.
