Does a great job

POSTED BY: Phil
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

I replaced a pc with this laptop. I needed the space and portability. Since I already have another Toshiba laptop (I use that one at my office) this was a natural. My L-305D serves well as my home computer. I do wish that it had one more usb port as I have hooked up a keyboard and mouse to the computer. The other point I note is that the battery drains rather quickly and the bigger battery does not fit flush with the computer base. Still, this is a very good laptop!

Love my new computer. Vista is not my favorite but not as terrible as rumours have it...

Great Lap Top.

POSTED BY: Michael , Rancho Cordova
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

This is the second Lap Top I have purchased. The last one was DELL. Toshiba has it all over DELL. Quality, Price, features. This model is less than half the price paid for the last one with more power for what I need. Just can't say enough about your unit. Just wish the battery life was better than what it is. That is the only draw back noticed. Technology Professional in California.

My new Toshiba laptop has been a blast to use. It was up and running in no time. I am amazed at the speed and lack of problems. We now have hi-speed internet and it allows me to wade through my work even faster. All the functions are intuitive and user friendly.

since i bought this laptop my sister has been begging me to buy another one cuz she likes it better than the one she has.which is kinda funny cuz her lob gives here a new lap top every 2 years and lets her keep the old one.so she has 3 lap tops and still wants mine becuz of the speed and performance.

This is my third laptop computer, and by far the best one. The speed, the memory, and all the other features only prove that Toshiba is the highest rated PC available. Tell your friends!!!

Toshiba Is Great

POSTED BY: Granny , Watauga, Texas
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

This is my 3rd or 4th Toshiba laptop. I am and have always been pleased with my Toshibas. The only thing I can say I wish was different is the lack of a manual on Vista. I have had no luck in trying to find a class to teach me.

overall, its a good experience - aesthetically its a little plain, but that's a relatively minor issue. it runs well and it was a good price for what I get out of it.

I love my laptop I am using it mostly for writing and having a nice size screen is great. The features on the Toshiba are great and its not too heavy to carry.I had several of my friends and family recommend the Toshiba to me. I am extremely happy with my purchase.

Great Laptop. Comes with multi-layered DVD burner. Great screen size. Dual processors are awesome. Great Harddrive size and ram. Comes with web cam. Better speakers would be nice, as would greater options for docking stations.

This is my first laptop, so don't have a lot to compare with, but am disappointed with the battery life. Experienced some problems with Firefox changing my page size, but that's not the laptop's fault. I hate Vista and wish I could downgrade to XP, but customer service told me I couldn't. The techs were very helpful and pleasant.

This laptop worked perfect for me, until...I upgraded to Windows 7. I have had incessant issues with it since I updated it. I have gone through every level of microsoft technician there is and they are all convinced it is the computer. So, I reinstalled windows vista. Going into the future when vista gets phased out and 7 becomes the standard, it is going to create problems

Settling in with my new laptop

POSTED BY: RK , Gilbert, AZ
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

So far, this machine outperforms any that I've owned in the past. I wasn't crazy about switching over to Vista from XP, but it's been quite stable thus far and other than a small disappointment that one of my programs won't operate on the 64 bit system (without an upgrade to the software) even though I just bought the program less than 1 year ago, I've been very pleased. I contacted the customer support in regards to the backup files. I was a little shocked that the computer didn't come with a recovery disc, but in a matter of 20 minutes I had burned three DVD's backing up the entire system. I had to use these recovery discs after a failed attempt to put XP on the computer as dual booting computer. While that operation didn't go very well, the recovery discs were quick and easy to get "back to where I once belonged".

Latest Windows version laptop

POSTED BY: Middle-ager , Roseville, CA
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

Not real thrilled with WindowsVista as everything I tried to use/open using XP didn't want to work. Applications locked up, and so did the computer. There were so many high-function internet options that caused the laptop to lock-up and crash also. Too much going on for the processor (speed) to handle. WindowsXP should've been loaded on the computer, not a trialversion of Windows. Should give Norton subscription too.

BQ Review

POSTED BY: Kidsanddogs , Naperville, IL
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

Positives: - Operational speed is good - Ease of personalization is good - Keyboard has a nice touch to typing - I like the 'partnerpage' - nice layout! Minor difficulties: Keyboard is different than others I've used, so it has been a little adjustment, but not too bad. Major difficulty I've been having a little trouble with dual monitors. The machine periodically crashes due to the dual monitors and I'm not sure why. When it does that, it wipes out my settings on my home page ( 'partner page')

It's ok

I understand Tosiba laptops are notorious for getting very warm on the bottom, mine is no exception. Also, I returned my original laptop to the store because it constantly locked up. This one locks up perodically but it's just occassionally so I think I can deal with it.

Great for the price, absurdly poor battery

POSTED BY: Cougrrr , Pullman, WA
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

I have no real complaints about this laptop, except the battery life. The price to performance ratio for a laptop I bought for only sales reports and checking email on the road has been just fine. I went in to get a netbook, came out with this, and the only complaint would be that 3 hours of battery life is only obtainable if the laptop is completely idle with the WiFi off. On performance or balanced mode you have maybe an hour, on power saver while watching a movie maybe an hour and a half. Plugged in though the laptop does just fine, I would recommend it for the basic business travel that isn't going to be compiling or anything, just checking and responding to email and the occasional 1.6 counterstrike distraction.

Needs an XP upgrage!

POSTED BY: Mike , Cedar Park, TX
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

This laptop would probably be a better value if it were running XP instead of Vista. My old, slower single core machine ran faster than this one. I'm also disappointed that my 2002 Outlook is hobbled under Vista and that such a simple thing as a low battery warning is missing. All the Toshiba help pages say that this warning is available but the specified menu items do not exist. I guess what I'd really like is an XP upgrade.

VISTA is horrible!!!! The DVD/CD drive doesn't work. I can't stand Microsoft Office 2007 and I don't seem to be able to install my copy of Microsoft Office 2003 so I am using the Earthlink website to retrieve e-mails but all my contacts etc. are unusable. Otherwise good product but those deficiencies are MAJOR!!

Battery backup should be increased more. Displaying movie or picture or any text is little bit blurred like that this example that when we try to focus a projector on the board till the text is not day light clear. So this monitor's resolution should be increased in future product

The construction, look and feel are fine.... but a few things about my new Toshiba Satellite Laptop are bugging me. 1) It goes to sleep too fast and it's a real problem because my usb printer and keyboard disconnect and have to be unplugged and replugged in after I awake the computer 2) A couple of times it just went to a black screen and I had to remove the battery to restart it. 3) Having trouble activating my main business software on the new laptop (likely a Vista issue) - I've had experts work on this from remote location 7 hrs and still counting.
