This is a great lap top, don't even hesitate to buy it. This unit rivals many machines at much higher prices. This lap top is fast, has a very responsive mouse pad and HD display is crisp and clear. The HD camera outshines the one on my old machine, Skype is so clear now. If there is any thing to complain about (and I don't really care about this) is the sound quality.

Got this laptop for work but decided to use it at home as my main laptop as it worked so well. Easy to navigate, set up and so far has functioned flawlessly. Nice looking laptop; lightweight compared to previous one and have used my "old" laptop for work. Updates (to the 8.1 update, and the update to the update) were done at my brother's since his internet download capability is a lot bigger than mine and could easily handle the updates. Overall very pleased and a great price.

As you can see, I do like my pc, with one exception and it may be common for most pc's. I do not like the keyboard because the keys are so close and are not raised at all. For the first time in my life, I have to watch the keys or I appear to have typed a foreign language. I would recommend this pc, but I would suggest they check other keyboard possibilities.

We wanted an extra laptop for the office when we have part timers working. Besides the dislike of windows 8-you can't hold that against the computer-it seems to work/load fast, and has a nice sharp screen. So far battery life seems good, but it is also not a crucial factor for our needs

I have had some issues with programs not responding - but those go away with a restart. I suspect Chrome, my preferred browser, memory management. There was an issue of no apparent mouse pad, but that was solved by discovering that my use of the F5 key toggled it off. Useful when remote-mousing, and to reinstate when I can't easily use the mouse, but very troubling to others who hadn't found that simple solution that I stumbled upon. I posted my solution to all the forum locations I found in my search for the answer to that problem. Without the disabling, my computer had the annoying tendency to put some W8.1 garbage in place of what I'd been working on; using the remote mouse stopped that behavior.

POSTED BY: Gramma , Portland, OR
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

This is a good laptop. I have had it a little over a month. My old one wouldn't upgrade from Windows XP, so I replaced it while kicking and screaming. It had a Spanish keyboard, so I used it to drive an English keyboard, a mouse, and a full size monitor. So getting used to the Toshiba's keyboard and mouse pad is a little difficult while also getting used to Windows 8 at the same time. I am sure I will get the hang of it all soon.

Using a desktop running Windows XP and was getting multiple errors from banking and credit card sites that my computer was using an OS that was no longer supported.

Very surprised at the quality, features, and ease of use of this laptop for its cost. The keyboard is outstanding in that the size is comfortable for the hands. I was also surprised at the available features. I switched from an HP to this Toshiba and it took a little while to learn the new Windows but am getting more comfortable every time I use it. I have not used all the features yet but am anxious to try them all. I have been impressed by the reviews of its durability and, overtime, expect it to perform admirably. I am an 'older' consumer and am very pleased with this product.

BOUGHT MY SECOND LAPTOP TOSHIBA

POSTED BY: Sizzlecraft10 , Copperopolis, CA
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

This was my second Toshiba Laptop. I also bought one for my grandson so this was my third Laptop. I have been very pleased with the performance of the Toshiba and the reliability. My last Toshiba lasted 6 years. On this new Toshiba Laptop I gave it a little lower rating, not because of the laptop itself but for the performance of all the add on advertisements included with the software. I had a lot of trouble with Windows 8.1 message error for critical structural corruption. I had to have Technical support go into my laptop and clean out all the advertisements, pop ups, and re-apply Windows 8.1. I am an avid scrapbooker/cardmaker. My computer is my life. I use it to support 10 years worth of work. I am now very pleased with the Toshiba Laptop.

I like the laptop that I got from Toshiba pretty well. It is a pretty fast computer, and comes with a lot of built in features, but I don't really need, or USE, most of them, because they require a Microsoft account, which I don't really want. It's still a great laptop, though, and I like any PC more than any Mac. Always get a PC. Always.

Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

This laptop does everything it says it will do. It's for those of us that don't game and do a ton of system intensive tasks. It does great with online streaming and browsing along with doing work with Microsoft Office products and things of that nature. The only issue I've had with it is that it doesn't like to stay connected to the internet when you are browsing. If you are on a site for too long reading or scrolling without streaming, the laptop likes to drop off connection. All I have to do is open the list of available networks again and it reconnects on its own without me having to find my network again, but it's annoying to have to do that multiple times. Some days are better than others though. I know it's the computer and not my connection though as my wife doesn't have the same issues on her Apple product and I didn't have this issue on my previous computers using the same router and internet connections. This could be an isolated issue though. For the price though, I will deal with this minor annoyance. The price is definitely what brought me to this laptop, and it was well worth what I paid. I would buy this laptop again.

I returned the first Toshiba, because the letters skipped. This one does the same. It rarely prints an "l" or an "o," and it misses all other characters sporadically. Since I bought this for word processing, it's a real bummer having to go back ad retype missing letters. Otherwise, the laptop is fine. I do not like the latest Windows version, but that is irrelevant.

Overall rating: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5

I've had the c55-a5105 for just over a month. Its primary use is for the internet and runs really well. The battery life also lasts a good few hours. The camera is pretty grainy though. I would not recommend this to a friend though because it's the third Toshiba satellite that I've had in four years. The system runs fine but physical parts break easily. I've had to open up my laptops multiple times to replace parts after only having them a few months. After one month the back light for the screen blew. It's lucky I saved my screen from my old Toshiba Satellite. This is always the cheapest laptop I can find and that's why I keep buying them though. The price is amazing.

Not user friendly - difficult to get around

POSTED BY: oscar , milwaukee, wisconsin
Overall rating: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5

This is a difficult computer to use. It is not user friendly. The internet works, but it takes a while to figure out how to get on the internet! The keys are heavy and difficult to push down. They almost feel sticky. The screen locks up at its own will and you cannot log back on without having to turn off the computer and start all over again. The alarm clock goes off whenever it wants. Figuring out how to download and save pictures from a camera is another story altogether. The sidebars always come on, windows close and open apparently at will. And it seems impossible to turn off the voice activation that comes on, which is really annoying. Definitely not user friendly or intuitive. It does not come with anything either, no office, antivirus expired in a week and you have to buy it. The positives: its relatively inexpensive, although for the user-friendliness of this computer I would expect to pay even less. I would value it at around $100-$125, then it would be a good deal. The battery lasts a long time. It is also extremely lightweight.

It doesn't feel like my phone nor my tablet but is a animal all its own. I regret purchasing it. Don't know how I feel about toshiba because I can't get past the Win 8. Sorry.

The processing speed of the laptop is quite slow. The pictures are clear and keyboard are actually okay. The laptop does not appear durable.

This is an inexpensive laptop but I am disappointed with the way the mouse pad feature works. It works very poorly.

You get what you pay for. I'm still using my Sony Vaio, Windows XP. I don't know what's wrong with my new Toshiba, but I haven't gotten much use out of it. I also don't understand why I have to pay PC Backup to back up my files. I have never been pressured to pay on any of my previous computers. Very disappointed with this purchase. In fact, I'm writing this review on my old Sony Vaio XP.

First of all, they disabled the normal functions of the Function Keys from F1 to F4. F5 is a toggle switch to turn the mouse on and off. Not the best ideas. The mouse turns itself on and off as it pleases. It has already malfunctioned and given me blue screens within days of purchase.

First the hard drive crashed. Then it continued to get viriuses. I would prefer to have prgrams come with the operating sytem and pay when I purchased the computer. I had thee computers and the toshiba was te only one that got viruses. My compaq is sill running fine. I culd read attachmentsdent from oder computers. Only my newest printer was compatible with your device. computer.

You absolutely need to provide a hardcopy manual for the Toshiba Satellite C50-A series. Forget the support site download, the online tutorals, and the chat support. Provide a hardcopy users guide! I'm even willing to pay for a users guide, especially one that would show me how to get to the online users guide.

Do not buy this computer

I just purchased this computer and already the internal mouse no longer works. Think about it before you buy this computer.

I have not used the laptop since I got to Nigeria. It just stopped working. I was told that the mother board can't be changed. The best thing is to change the laptop.
