I am new to using a laptop and not real computer savvy but I have really enjoyed this Toshiba that I received as a gift. The screen is very big which is wonderful and the touch pad is easy to use. This is a great "starter" computer for those of us who aren't really sure what they're doing. First Toshiba and very pleased.

I've been waiting for a good laptop for an affordable price to come around. This was it! So far zero problems. Super fast with my wireless network, and Windows 7 is BY FAR faster and easier to work with than Vista. Had I known before I bought this how nice it was, I would have gotten 2. The only thing I wish it had was built in web-cam, but an external one is cheaper anyway. Mousepad is touchy, but I've learned how to deal with it.

Very Nice Machine

This Laptop easily rivals more expensive machines. After days of shopping around and comparing about a dozen or more laptops, the L505D was the best choice based on preformance and price. Very Stylish, easy to use, 3 GB of Ram which is pretty fast and a huge 320GB hard drive. Excellent choice i'm very pleased.

This is an excellent computer. The battery life is tad short but not problematic. The touch pad takes some getting used to but is better than some of the pointing devices on the market. It hooked up to my network with no issues. I really like the keyboard, nice size and excellent tactile response. I am quite impressed so far with it. Let's face it, you would pay almost as much for a net book and not get anywhere the features. I'm looking forward to using this for a long time!

I really like this laptop that I received for Christmas..It has alot of great features. I only have 2 complaints and that is the battery life is very short.You probably wouldn't be able to watch an entire movie without being plugged in. I have found that you can maybe get an hour and a half. And my other con is the speaker volume is very low and not really "stereo" sounding, but that can be cured with external speakers. Other than that it's a great machine! Processes very quickly and extremely easy to use! Would definately recommend!

I bought this computer because I needed a better way to keep track of all of the information I gathered for genealogy research. I went to my local retailer and asked one of the computer technicians how reliable this brand is, since I have never used a Toshiba laptop before, and he explained that of all the computers that come in for repairs Toshiba is one that he sees the least. I wanted something dependable and durable. Also a computer for gaming. This one has not let me down. Perfect for ALL of my needs!!

I have a dell lab top, and purchase this Toshiba for my kids. I like the Toshiba lab top better because its functions are easy to use. The key board feels better and it has the number keys on the side which i like. My Dell lap top have it too, but you have to hold down the function button to . The only one thing I don't like about the Toshiba is no light for the key board. Every thing else were great.

POSTED BY: Mistrcoffe , CT
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

This unit could not be touched compared to anything for the money. In fact most laptops that cost as much as 250 dollars more in other brands did not offer the features this one did. If one thing could be better it would be the speakers, but I guess every component could not be the best and keep the unit so inexpensive. My last Toshiba is the reason I bought this one, and I only replaced it because it was lost when our house burned. I think the video is a stand out feature, as is the number keypad separate from the qwerty board. Topped off with Windows 7 it was a no brainer.

The internal design, drive size, and the functional aspect of its ergonomic design commend it to someone looking for a superior value. A lot for a modest cost.

I am happy with this Toshiba Satellite purchase. It is my 3rd Toshiba Satellite laptop. (# one was purchased 10+ years ago and simply became outdated but still is going strong. #2's screen died). This one was easy to get started myself, and user friendly. It does not have a cam feature (#2 did) and the speakers sound tinny. (I've adjused the equalizer which helped). But overall this is a quality product and cost effective.

When our previous laptop's hard disk died, we shopped around for a new laptop, wanting decent performance and capacity as our old one had. We were leary of Windows 7 since most are 64-bit which wouldn't allow our important DOS app w/o finagling (virtual machine). Fortunately the L505D-S5983 runs Win 7 32-bit which does allow DOS or early Windows (16-bit) applications. Beyond that we like the features of this Toshiba as well as Windows 7.

I have used a number of laptops over the years but this one is proving to be the best value yet. It is larger that today's netbook computers. It is not for easy use on an airplane. It is for having a portable computer that has all the functionality of a desktop but still able to be carried. Its best use is at home when you have very limited space as in a college dorm or small apartment. Get the extra battery if you plan on traveling. Two hours with the standard battery is hardly enough to watch a DVD.

This is my 2nd Toshiba laptop & I belive this is the nicest & most user friendly product. The Windows 7 product included with this item was really easy to work with. My other Toshiba had Vista & I am glad they have improved every aspect of that program on this computer. The keyboard is easy to use & the screen is easy to read. My main complaint is the number of USB ports included on this product. By the time you have your fan, wireless mouse attached you have only 1 additional port to use.

The Toshiba L505D-S5983 laptop is light weight but still has a sturdy case. This is a 32bit machine with Windows 7 and so far has been very stable. It communicates well with network computers and equipment and it sports a a good size key board that includes a ten key numeric pad. I work with several Toshiba laptops and have never had one fail. I would highly recommend this product.

It's been over a month and I'm very happy with my purchase. I'm just a basic computer user. Nothing fancy. And this has been great for me. Only complaint would be the speakers/sound. But I was aware of that before I purchased this computer. I bought speakers to plug in and am very happy. Also battery time is a little over two hours. I'm not on it for longer then two hours at a time. But not great if your a student or sitting at a coffee shop. All in all, I'm extremely happy with this laptop. I was able to turn it on and start using it right away. Very easy and user friendly.

This is the first Satellite i have owned. My two children have Toshiba's so i asked for one for myself. The new windows 7 takes a little to get use to but operates great. The only problem i have is the fact that you get no software recovery disc with the system. All the computers i have purchased have had a recovery disc, full windows disc, or a series of disc's. This one and other Toshiba products require you to make a recovery disc. If the recovery disc you make happens to have a error on it. Toshiba makes you pay for a disc.....

I also love the even mouse pad(not sunken in like most.) This makes navigation so much easier. I've done everything from creating work schedules, spreadsheets, create recipe files and watch movies and listen to music with ease. The sound quality and equalizer make it an ideal entertainment system on the go! Toshiba has done it again! It's no wonder why this brand has such a good reputation. I'll definitely recommend this brand in the future.

Seems to be a peppy litter computer. I haven't run it through it's paces (although I'm a little scared to in fear of being disappointed). I probably will install a graphics/cpu intensive game and check it out. I'm concerned that It's running 32-bit Windows7 instead of 64 bit in line with the processor. Also, went to install a game for my daughter, and it literally took like 30 minutes and many reboots to finally get the installer running. I'm not sure why. Also, I have to run Google Chrome instead of IE 8 because of so many crashes.

I was willing to pay a little extra to get a 2 core machine capable of running a 64 bit OS hoping this machine will not be obsolete as soon as a single core which can only run 32 bit and think I got it all for a good price. The screen has great color but lines are a little jagged. If I were to make one suggestion to Toshiba it would be to make the del and end keys as big as the back space key to make them easy to find and strike. It only has two usb ports but so far I have not had to use my 4 port adapter. One feature I wished I had and might have paid more for is the ability to use a wireless mouse without plugging something into a usb port. My biggest complaint, however, and I have this complaint with all laptops, is the volume and quality of the built-in speakers. It's not loud enough to listen to dvd's or my gps system tell me which direction to turn while the car is on the road. Otherwise, it's a pretty slick machine that seems to handle the multi-tasking I do with relative ease.

We did some research and for the price we paid we think we got a pretty good deal/package with the Toshiba.

The only major complaint that we have after about a month of use is that the battery life is horrible. We get less than 3 hours on a charge. Usually we are using it plugged in when we are around the house. Overall, we would recommend this product.

The Satellite is manageable for a neophyte. It is well made and easy to use. It has most of the hardware bells and whistles. It is weak on the programs included. The price is enticing for the hardware but becomes more costly to operate since very few programs are included. Everything considered it is a good deal - but not an outstanding one for that reason.

For the price, this laptop is pretty good. There aren't enough USB ports and the volume control wheel seems like a cheap feature. Opening and closing the laptop is awkward because you have to hold the bottom down to open it and there's no real latch to close it. Other than those cosmetic features, the laptop runs quickly and efficiently for my use. I like windows 7 and even though this is a 32 bit system, it's still fast.

The Satellite isn't a bad choice for a personal laptop. It's got a nice screen and a really nice sized keyboard with the full number pad. The only two flaws I have found in using this laptop is that the screen doesn't lock down meaning it can be opened by just lifting the screen. I would prefer to have a locking mechanism on it. The other flaw and this is very annoying is that the touch pad isn't recessed into the system itself. It's very very easy to accidentally move and/or click something with the palm of your hand while typing. This could be a deterrent to those that will be using for writting purposes.

This particular model has user UN-friendly features . There are only 2 USB Ports and to make matters even worse they are located on the right hand side where most people use a mouse for navigation. Also located on the right side just above the USB Ports is the plug-in for the power cord/cable. Everything is cluttered in one place and looks untidy in addition to being in the way of a right-handed user. Power cord plug in should always be at the back of a PC not on any of its sides. There should be at least 3 USB Ports one could be on the opposite side of the unit. As it stands right now the right hand space is taken up by i.e. plug-in for mouse, plug-in for cooling pad and plug-in for power cord - OMG!! This causes any user of this paricular model to constantly "bump" into this piled up mess while navigating the screen. Don't suggest the use of the PC's Touchpad as it is cumbersome for most tasks being performed and at times actually useless - especially for gaming!! Last but not least the speakers are of poor quality even after making several adjustments under "Sounds" in the control panel. I have heard the sound of other Toshiba Models and it is much fuller and richer than on this one. But nevertheless I would never buy a Toshiba again based on this experience alone!

the laptop performs pretty well, but the battery life is terrible. you are lucky to get even close to 2 hours of life with real use.

Touch pad and keyboard

POSTED BY: RBeigher , Greenwood, Missouri, USA

The keyboard is arranged in such a way as to require me to learn to shift my hands to the left so that I can easily reach the home keys. Of then, when I am typing, by accidently touching the touch pad which is located directly under my hands, I lose all of my typing. This is an annoying problem. This is my second Toshiba. I still own my first one and have never had this problem with it. I had a lot of technical problems with my first Toshiba, but once it was fixed, I enjoyed using it. I have owned five laptops, an old Dell, an HP, a Gateway and two Toshibas. This is the worst keyboard, touch pad set up that I have seen. Also, while scrolling with the touch pad, my font size will change making it hard to read my documents. I have to be very careful to keep my fingers on the left side of the touch pad to prevent that problem.

Very low volume

This computer is a good value, but the volume is horrible! I had to buy speakers to listen to videos, music, and etc. My husband bought one also and has the exact same problem!! Also the battery life is not great!!

Can I hear you?

The speakers are terrible. Even cranked all the way up you can barely hear anything and what you hear has no tone quality. Very disappointing! It has to be the speakers because there is plenty of good sound with a good pair of headphones, but who wants to wear headphones all the time? Everything else seems to be fine as far as operation. It is not good that it seems that any software beyond the basics comes at a cost. I would tell a friend to look for a better deal.

Good Internet Computer

Due to it's weight I would recommend this model as a good Stay-at-Home laptop. I would of liked a better battery life. So plan on keeping it plugged in most of time. But it seems sturdy and comfortabe to use with it's full size key board. Only time will tell how dependable it.

Don't Buy This Computer

This is the most god awful computer I have ever had.I have had nothing but problems with it since I got it.Within a month the computer turned nortons off by itself so I got a virus that shut it completley down.I fixed it myself.And then about 3 months later the motherboard had to be replaced.And now the battery charger has went out.The computer never held a full charge to begin with.And when i'm online the screen zoom's in and out by itself.It deletes files that I know I have saved by itself.And at one point it overheated my ipod within 30 minutes of it being plugged in.I hate this computer with a passion if I had the money I would buy a new one right now.I should of bought a Mac.

Not a goog LAPTOP

This LAPTOP is showing a good presentation, but the performance is bad. It has the problem with an error F3-F200-0002, and the local support engineer just recommend to change the HDD (and lost all the personal information), but after the repair the LAPTOP is more slow and has another problem during the SHUTDOWN process.

this is my 1ST laptop, not pleased with it.

Received this as a gift at christmas and have not been able to connect to the internet as of today. I already had a desktop and was told I would need a router in order to make the laptop work.

Almost Unusable

1.5 hour battery life is not usable.

Wish I could get a refund!

Worst touchpad ever!!! Constantly changes size of document or internet page. Find myself typing all over the place as cursor is constantly jumping all over the page. Battery lasts less than two hours even though it was touted as lasting 2.5 hours. Overall, if I could get my money back, I would. I guess you get what you pay for. It's a real shame; I had a Toshiba before and I loved it. This is by far, the worst laptop I've ever owned.

Don't like the automatic features

I don't like the way this computer activates whatever it is hovering over without touching any keys. It activates things when you stop on them without doing anything else. Also when I got it the computer locked up while updating and I couldn't shut it down without shutting off all power suppolies. It also updates windows while I am writing e-mails and then shuts down and I loose everything. THAT IS NOT COOL11111
