Nearly perfect for me

POSTED BY: clarkjrs , Benton, KY
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

My Toshiba C855-S5190 Laptop has been nearly perfect for my type of use. I do some web surfing, lots of email, a little facebook and a little ebay. I do like to watch videos and listen to music. I don't generally watch movies or do heavy gaming. This computer goes above and beyond. Love the textile feel of the keys and thumb pad. I'm still learning Windows8, but like the UI. The only thing I miss is there is no verticle or horizontal scroll on the thumb pad.

Upgraded from a little netbook to the 15 inch Toshiba Satellite c855-s5190 and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!! Great price at Office Max and had it delivered to my door the day after ordering it! Should have come with an owners manual on how to use Windows 8. Had to buy Windows 8 for Dummies and spent many hours navigating the programs. Still, love the laptop!

I have never used windows 8 before but since I got this laptop I am finding that I like it a lot. This laptop has been very efficient and easy to use and navigate around. it is lightweight and fun. I wouldn't own any other laptop

I bought this laptop to replace my Vaio. I love this laptop because it runs great, and has not given me any problems at all. I am a college student and it works lovely for my uses, which includes using Microsoft Office, and the internet quite frequently. I sometimes play games on it too and it is fine for those, but I don't know how it would do with games that are more intense than the ones that come with the computer. Overall, this a great computer and I highly recommend it for anybody, especially high school and college students!

I love the laptop but the Windows 8 installed on a non touch screen computer is a real pain to utilize. I wish it had an option to choose Windows 8 or 7.

My first laptop after finally giving up the desktop. I really enjoy using it. It has a faster start, faster search and I especially enjoy the portability. The price value drew me to Toshiba but the ease of use and the keyboard location with the ten key sold me on it.

This is my 3rd Toshiba laptop. The others have been passed on to family members and are still working. The light weight and thin profile make it more portable for me. Windows 8 is quite different, but convenient to use. I really like using the laptop. The sticky key really was new and had to discover how to disable.

Impressed

I was not familiar with Toshiba when I bought my Toshiba Satellite Laptop. I was immediately impressed with the way the keyboard is setup-like my old desktop-very easy to use. It is heavier than I anticipated, but that is becaue of the superb construction of the laptop. I did have a problem with activating Windows 8, but Microsoft support did an excellent job of finding the problem and curing it after many long phone consults-not Toshiba; fault. The screen is very clear. It is FASTER than any of the computers I have owned since 1987. I have also set up over 600 computers for employers over the years and this laptop was super easy to setup. I In my opinion PC Mag, Consumer magazines and other professional reviewers would short change Toshiba if they didn't give this laptop a five star rating.

Good for the price

Overall the quality is really good and as Toshiba products I've own before, I expect this one have a long life as well. I am a little disappointed because product feels a little plasticky. The mouse pad is kinda little for me and it has a texture that is not great to manage with the new gestures in Windows 8. Battery is good. Keyboard is ok. For the price is a good product.

I use this laptop for simple things like homework and watching YouTube or other shows while I'm hanging out in my bedroom. Often when I'm sliding my finger along the mouse touch pad, the screen will randomely switch to something else, as if I've triggered a shortcut. I can't figure this glitch out, so it's a little frustrating but manageable. The picture is beautiful and overall I'm happy with my new friend.

Very nice laptop.

Hate Windows 8, will never buy anything again that has windows 8 on it. The lap top is a good lap top, but take windows 8 out of it. Then it would be a great lap top

Office missing

POSTED BY: Coffee , Dallas, TX
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

I am enjoying my new laptop, but found it frustrating at first to get connected with everything wirelessly. Also, Windows 8 is difficult to navigate - not sure why it would be put on a laptop without a touch screen. My biggest complaint is that it did not come with Microsoft Office on it, which means more expense than I had thought I was incurring.

While working on the internet the font began to get small and did not stop until I could barely read it. The curson freezes while in movement. The date stamp pop-up appears without notice causing any movement of the crusor to freeze. Unable to close an app after it has been selected intentionally or not Skyp via Explorer and the app work differently - confusing

outstanding value

This is my second Toshiba satellite laptop for the home. Used for home/personal activities it is the best value on the market. Features meet or exceed any needs outside of a computer needed for business, as speed may or may not be a factor.

As a first time laptop user I find the level of support to be non-existent except for a 250 page operators manual which is not written to the level as to be helpful to a beginner. As usual you assume a lot more ability than a lot of us have which makes an "a s" out of u and me.

Frustrations

POSTED BY: Limited , madison, wi
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

Windows 8 was put on my new Toshiba laptop. I hated Windows 8! I took it to someone whom I paid to alter windows 8 so it worked more like 7. I also had an anti-virus put on my machine. There was no instruction manual. I have not been able to get into g-mail for the last two days as Everything on that page is in a foreign language....arabic, Russian or something like that. I cannot type anything on that page.... I can get into my g-mail on my desktop. I don't know what is going on with the Toshiba. I went to the Toshiba page where I could select "canned" problems, but my problem was NOT among them.

Hate the keyboard. The keys are aligned to the left. So I am constantly hitting wrong keys. I have to about do it with two fingers. Who would shift all the keys on a keyboard so you can't type quickly anymore. Hate it!!!!!!

POSTED BY: Elle B , Clarkston, MI

I bought this laptop to replace my old Toshiba Satellite, which had served me well for 4 years, but I wanted an updated model. From the moment I opened the box, I was disappointed - with the cheesy textured plastic covering everything, the noisy keyboard that is essentially concave, the short battery life...you name it. When I pick it up the thin plastic back caves in, sometimes causing a CD/DVD to eject. And when it crashed 3 days after I got it, I decided to just return it. But thanks to a sleazy return policy at the store where I bought it, I had to let them 'install updates and reset defaults'. This did fix the immediate problem, but I have no confidence in this laptop, and now I'm stuck with it.

I am very unhappy with my laptop purchase. After having the computer for only a few days we noticed a pixel defect in the screen. There is a green dot that does not go away. If I am having problems with it already I can only imagine what it will be like in a year. Windows 8 is a whole different problem. I keep expecting it to get better with more use but every time I use it I hate it more. I wish I had known what a pain it is to use. I would have bought an apple product instead.
