I had ordered another computer, but when the company didn't come through, I went shopping elsewhere. I found this computer and I was hooked. I canceled my other order, got money out of bank that day and after work, bought this computer. After a few quick updates, it's run great. I would highly recommend this laptop to anyone who would ask.

Love this machine. I'm somewhere between a new and proficient user. Only problem I've had is the cursor keeps getting stick even though I haven't been near the f5 key. Guess the cursor touch pad is very sensitive. Otherwise, have had no problems or troubles.

Basically, this is a really nice laptop, IF you know how to use it and Windows 8. I have never had W8 before, but after a few days, I'm starting to get used to it. It is getting less and less confusing, yet I still cannot figure out how you use the trackpad to scroll...

This is a great computer for the money. I know It ain Toshiba's fault, but windows 8 metro style stinks big and creating desktop Icons is an near impossible chore, plus driver support for printers is not what it should be, even though it is still basically windows 7 kernal. Good Toshiba, Bad Microsoft. I wish Mac would sell their OS for anyone to intstall.

Waited over 2 years to find a laptop. Finally decided on a Toshiba and it was perfect in price. Windows 8 is not a joy to use, but getting used to it. I all new pc's had their own word product so I wouldn't have to search for a free app on-line. Nevertheless, I am proud to own my first laptop by Toshiba!

This laptop is not the fastest one made, but it moves right along. It easily meets the needs of a college student. The Toshiba manuals sure helped get through the initial shock of WIN 8! What's missing? I would love to see this with a backlighted keyboard! I got spoiled on an earlier model.

The laptop is fast and easy to use. The features are great. Point of fact the worst thing about it is windows 8. But after you get used to windows 8...., Nothing to it, but to do it. I spent a bit more money than I would have liked to. But I have had zero regrets thus far. Toshiba Rocks. Always has.

This is a great laptop with good features. The resolution is excellent and sound efficient. The touchpad is sensitive as sometimes all you have to do is delay just a second and it opens a site.There may be a setting for that but I conquered it by using a wireless mouse.

love the laptop! and I am a novice. The only issue is learning to use Windows * but once you realize there is a screen for a similar Windows Explorer you are golden. The new tiles do not support everything I need for school, but the tile for Explorer does. Did not like the fact that I had to buy Microsoft Office for the computer separately. So that increases the cost.

I have had a long term love affair with the technical competence in the Toshiba team. I happily use my Toshiba Excite 10. AND Toshiba laptops are always on my desk. I love the battery life (this machine is good there) and the dependable design. "Solid" comes to mind. I am not in love with MSW 8, but when I get the "start button" upgrade that will help a lot. Toshiba is a product line you can count on to deliver.

My new Satellite laptop is a great value and performs very well. Its light, portable, has a nice battery life and easily picks up my network's router. There were some early problems getting used to the little quirks of Windows 8, but with online instruction most problems were ironed out. For anyone on a budget and might be needing a new laptop (or like me, a first laptop), this is your product. I highly recommend it.

For me windows 8 its a breeze to use, the laptop is a very good size so you don't have squint to read as if you were on a net book but isn't too huge to travel with. its not good for gaming though and it has a short cut on the mouse that takes you to another page and it constantly does it an drives me nuts D: but if you didn't want to use windows 8 there is a desktop feature so you don't have to really learn something new

Two things about the laptop I have an issue with. 1 is that the finger pad is slow in response and at times freezes. I have re downloaded the drivers to no avail. Second, I wanted this with Windows 7 but was told it wasn't available anymore? There is a large market that uses and wants to keep Windows 7 so why not market to it?

we are not tech savvy at all. windows 8 is a whole new language we have to learn. the screen size is great. the color and clarity are very nice. it seems to jump pages when you move your hand but once we figure it out better that might change. thankfully we had someone set it up for us otherwise we'd be lost. I don't like all the preinstalled apps that are of no use to us. Still have a lot to learn. Has a good amount of memory. We lost alot of pictures when transferring from our old desktop.

POSTED BY: Traffic , Coventry, RI
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

I found this laptop did what I bought it for - more memory and speed. But the Windows 8 system hasn't proven to be worth the effoert to change so far. I do not find it at all intuitive, but very comples to use. It seems to be loaded with things to buy rather than use. Everything has to be downloaded and printed if you don't want to read everything from the screen, which is hard when you are trying to work thru something.

I like Windows 8 okay. I'm still working on some of the features. I wish there were more (2 or 3)usb ports, especially usb 3. I've added a powered usb hub. The battery seems to go in about 2 - 3 hours. The cost fit into my budget. Why did Windows 8 not include all the traditional card games as in Windows XP?

I'm an old XP laptopper, very much set in my ways, now I'm trying to be morphed into a Windows 8, and a Toshiba pro all at once, to no avail. Personally, I like the laptop, it's much quicker than my HP/XP. More memory than I can retain, I like the added numbers feature on the right side of the keyboard. It's extremely quiet compared to my HP/XP. One thing I'm having a little trouble adapting to is your touchpad. When I got to hit the left button to 'click', nothing happens, because my old HP had a thinner molding around it, so I keep hitting the outside of the button. I'll get use to it. Another thing, I don't like the way my emails come in. When I get one, I get 4 of them biggest problem is with Windows 8, and/or it could be with my new Toshiba. I just don't know, because I got both at the same time. However, I'm in a program, and I'm going to add something to it, and all of a sudden, everything disappears, and I have to start all over. Extremely frustrating.

This laptop was a replacement for an older Dell laptop which ran on Windows XP. I like how lightweight the Toshiba Satelite is, and that it runs very cool, no burning your lap. It has a long battery life. It operates quickly without a lot of wait time. Windows 8 takes an adjustment. It runs smoothly, but it always wants to switch tasks in the middle of what I am doing. This is due to the fact that it uses the touch pad as a touch screen rather than a mouse. I would recommend using a mouse with the laptop if this really bothers you. The touch pad also had a tendency to shut off in the beginning. I think maybe an update to Windows 8 took care of that issue. The main issue I have with the Toshiba is the feel of it. The touch pad has a texture that will actually rub the skin off your finger tips until you develop callouses (another reason to use a mouse). Also the keyboard with the flat keys makes your fingers tend to slide off and your keyboarding skills suffer. My old laptop had curved top keys that felt great and the touch pad was smooth and sensitive. My fingers are really missing it. Overall, this model was priced right for the speed and memory I wanted, but I would like it to be more finger-friendly.

This laptop has a very long battery life. The screen is bright. The keyboard is full sized. The touchpad is offset to the left ... possibly to match the keyboard, but it is very hard to get used to. The multi-gesture of the touchpad does work so well. I carry a mouse for extended use as I grow weary fighting with the cursor jumping around, screen shrinking, and alternate programs opening (all windows 8 related multi-touch "features"). I think this computer loads fairly quickly, runs cool and quiet, and has some nice extras (HDMI, USB3). The built in video card is just short of some things I wanted to do, and this version of the MB doesn't support Virtual Machines. Had I known this ... I would have spent another $100 for those features.

I've had three Toshiba laptops and they all lasted many years. The only complaint I have is that where the power cord goes into the case it sticks out about two inches. This means you need to be VERY careful not to bang it since it will damage the internal connector (which is not easily fixed.) I notice that the newer and next higher model has a 90 degree bend where the power cord plugs into the laptop. Too bad I didn't get that on mine.

I'm not all that pleased with the software included on the laptop. Windows 8 is not my favorite, and there was no useful software included in the price. I liked MS Word and frequently used the word processor, spreadsheet, and database applications. A trial version of MS Office had been on it, but I mentioned to the tech who set up my computer that I hadn't liked the trial version on my old machine, so he removed it before I had another chance to look at it. He installed some open source software, but the database portion does not work at all. Also, there are no card games like solitaire and hearts included on the computer. I have to go online to play, and I would prefer not to have to do that. So, not a lot of useful software for me. It is mainly geared for people who want to just play, not work.

My biggest gripe is the mouse pad. It makes it difficult to search the internet because if you don't stick exactly to the middle of the pad, other windows open up or the window you are using closes. The side screen keeps popping up as well all because your finger moves to far over to the side. This feature alone drives me nuts. Not to mention when I am typing, hitting certain keys triggers other features to activate. I have figured out how it happens but to someone else who is less experienced this could lead them to spend money getting the laptop assessed when it is simple as hitting the exact keys that activated the feature. To fix the mouse pad issue I went out and bought a wireless mouse, which works much better. Overall I probably wouldn't purchase this again or recommend it to someone who uses there computer for office work or business.

Windows 8 is not as convience or friendly as windows 7. I am looking at downgrading my features from 8 to 7 because 7 was a more suitable. I find Windows 8 is only usable if you have a touch screen. It does not work well with normala laptops and although I have learn to manuever around I do not find it as friendly as Windows 7. I find this laptop processor is slower than the previous Toshiba I had and I found it to be disappointing. If I purchased another Toshiba laptop I would make sure it had a better processor in it.

I expected better from Toshiba. I purchased the C855 based on a previous purchase of a Satelite L675-S7048 which is a great machine! The C855 is slow with the dual core Celeron CPU which I did not see in the specs but found out after running the Speccy utility. Windows 8 is terrible without a touch screen and hard to get used to. It also seemed to hang for several seconds while trying to move the mouse. So I blew away Windows 8 and loaded Win 7 but it still seems slow. The DVD player is almost impossible to find the button to open it with and end up having to visually find the button, so I put a dot of hard glue above it so I can feel where the button should be. The ethernet port is rough and find it hard to remove the ethernet cable from the receptacle. The mouse pad is so rough that if feels like I am sanding down my fingerprints when trying to move the cursor. It does have a nice screen with good resolution and bright colors and a large hard drive, so I will continue using it for a while to see if it grows on me. Next time I will look for one with an AMD CPU which seem to perform better than the Celeron CPU. I am not an expert but I am disappointed in this machine overall.

It would be better if there was a way to make the keyboard tilt just a bit, i.e. short fold down legs. Also, after a month it still seems like the keyboard is "off center" because of the number pad. I am finally getting used to that. The arrow keys are very small, (half size) unless you turn off the number lock and use the arrow keys there. The same is true of the "del" key which is also half size. Windows 8 is another issue entirely. However, be warned that it does come with Windows *, as did every other computer that I looked at. Hopefully the supposed "patch" and "October update" will make it easier and better. Time will tell.

I cannot fault Toshiba for the garbage that Windows 8 is. It is horrible. I can walk around XP blindfolded, but this is not worth using if it was free. However, to have loaded Norton without the customer requesting it is beyond the imagination. You don't just "remove" it. After you do, you download the Norton removal tool, when that's done, you start in the registry for anything "Norton" or "Symantec". Takes hours to do it right. Games? Who is the brilliant person that loaded all those games on the laptop? Again, they don't easily come out, especially Wild Tangent. I don't need any of the "apps" Toshiba loaded. Almost all have been removed. I am not sure who loaded all the Bing stuff, but it's all gone, too. Start8 is a beginning for fixing 8. I have no charms, no hot spots, no "Metro" screen whatsoever. I have a normal desktop, normal start menu and control panel, a green XP type start button. Why after all that other stuff did Toshiba not install the full Synaptics driver package? I've done it before, so you don't have hover select, rather tap to select. REAL pain before I got the Metro screen gone. As you dragged across, everything opened. Suggestion: Load necessary stuff like Synaptics full driver package. Don't load games or Norton at all....make them something a purchaser can download off your website with a purchase key. I will never, as in ever, use anything Norton again. Generate drivers for this laptop for XP. As bad as 8 is, if you had such drivers, I would have had XP loaded inside of two days of purchase.

Its a good laptop for the price point but had little disappointments. Cons: Webcam quality very poor in normal home lights. Need extra lights for decent video chat etc. Dead Pixel found on screen in 3 days. Windows 8 requires some learning curve. Pros: lightweight, good for price, fast enough for home and personal use.

My old Dell Inspiron (2006) had XP OS and Office 2003. My job required that I be able to access docs in Office 2007. I finally made the leap to this Windows 8 machine and got Office 2013 for it. I need and use the Office programs, but all of the many "tiles" of Apps are valueless to me. I am a working person, and don't use my laptop for games/frivolities. I wish that this laptop had the straightforward Windows 7 layout, and that it included manuals and installation CDs.

Windows 8 is a joke. Very difficult to work with. You need to provide users with options, either Windows 7 or 8, not a mandate only. Would rather use an old laptop than this new one. Would never purchase another one.

I dislike the new software on this laptop...miserable, hard to use, and I wish I had chosen a different brand. The ads and features Toshiba partners with are not ones I want to have on my laptop and it has been almost impossible to get them off. I thought Dell loaded up with all of these marketers, but, this Toshiba is more loaded than Dell. Not a happy customer.

KEYBOARD

The keyboard is not very responsive. It's almost like the keys are spaced wider apart and they stick. Very cumbersome issue ... causes typing errors and more time proofing copy that should fly out. Love the number key pad on side, it really helps with data entry.

I do not like Windows 8 at all. I am not using this new laptop because of it. This is my third Toshiba laptop and I just can't use it. I am handicapped and use the Library a lot, but I have not been able to get windows 8 to work with any of it. Would it be possible to send me a different Windows that i can use ?

This laptop is for those looking for decent configuration at best price. Definately not for rugged use, it should be considered only for ocassional use. The big drawbacks of this laptop are its touchpad and keypad. The touchpad is grainy, so it doesn't give a smooth finger movement. Also the cursor movement is jerky. Sometimes it just does not respond to the input. That is frustrating. Best option is to use external mouse instead of the touchpad. The keypad is also filmsy. It feels as if after 1 or 2 years of continuous use the keys might just start poping up. For rugged users it might be of big concern. The configuration to price factor runs in favor of this laptop. The processor is dual core and does all the basic stuff pretty well. I do not expect it to do high end stuff. RAM is 6 GB which I feel is unnecessary. It could have done with 4 GB as well. But more is better I guess.Harddisk is 640GB decent size. This laptop could be used for browsing, watching videos. Doesn't seem to be a gaming laptop definately.

I returned 2 of these to the store because of an obvious manufacturing defect. Both of the mouse pads quit working after 3/5 days of use - making the laptop virtually unuseable unless I wanted to attach a separate mouse - which I didn't want to do.

I have had 3 laptop and played with others. This is my second Toshiba Satellite and I loved my first one that I had bought used years ago but it finally gave out on me. So I tried another brand that I was not happy with and it crashed after 2 years. So this time I decided to go back to Toshiba and I have had problems with it since I bought it about a month ago.

I had a Toshiba previously and it seemed to perform well. However this one seems to have a faulty keyboard system which makes it unreliable. The first one had a key break apart and it was replaced with a new one after Toshiba said it would have to be returned to the factory. That one evidently had a small amount of coffee spilled on it and the keyboard went crazy. It was also replaced under the extended warranty plan. But the keyboard failure makes it unsuitable for general use. I want something that isn't failure prone.

I hate Windows 8

POSTED BY: I hate Win 8 , Lakewood, CO
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

My poor rating stems from the fact that this laptop came with Windows 8, and for that reason I ended up returning the laptop after two weeks. The hardware itself was fine. I didn't really like the keyboard layout, but I was getting used to it. What I really couldn't take was Windows 8. I am a "computer professional" and thus I spend most of my work day every day using a computer. I'm not going to relearn the user interface just because someone at Microsoft wants job security. I use XP at work and Win7 at home and both of those user interfaces are more efficient for the "power user" such as myself. Mimicking an Android phone or tablet on a desktop is just plain stupid. It was also unstable. It locked up on me many times with several different programs, including Internet Explorer. I'll wait for Windows 9 or whatever they call it when they fix the colossal blunder they call Windows 8. I would have kept the laptop if Toshiba or the retailer would have provided a free retrograde (actually upgrade) to Win7 or even XP. Seems appropriate to me that I hate Windows 8 rhymes so well.
