Great Laptop!

I really like my Toshiba laptop. It's lightweight, yet has a big keyboard. It was easy to set up wireless Internet and wireless printer. I haven't depended on the battery life yet.

Suprisingly easy and efficient laptop

All aspects of the C55-A5182 are very good. The laptop speakers are "sound", but using external speakers or earphones you can enhance with the DTS app to make the sound quality 100 times more pleasing. Overall, seems to be the right choice for my personal needs.

Went looking to replace an 8 year old laptop and did not consider looking at a Toshiba. However, this was recommended to me and I am very pleased with my choice.

As I have primarily used desktop computers in the past, this is only the second laptop I have ever purchased. I bought my first one about 10 years ago, and the improvements since then are amazing. The screen size, the weight, and the processing power of this new computer are very impressive. Factor in the reasonable cost, and it becomes a truly great computer. I highly recommend it!

good value and performance for the money. Took a little time understanding Windows 8. I like it now.

Excellent Choice of Laptop

I have been using laptop computers since 1987 and have experienced many different brands over the years. I like the Satellite the best of any I have had. The performance is excellent, the graphics crisp and clear and this computer works very well for word processing, spreadsheets and gaming. I have only had to contact Support once, and I was immediately speaking with a technician who quickly and efficiently resolved the problem. I like the wide screen and the light weight of the Satellite makes the computer highly portable. My only negative observation is that the keys are a bit "sticky" leading to above average typos when word processing.

great laptop......great price

I needed a new Laptop for my work. This has certainly done the job.. Nice big screen that is easy to see. Not too heavy to carry to and from the office.

I would like to have a touchscreen, but it doesn't seem to be worth the extra cost. This computer does everything I need it to do. I would recommend using a mouse, though. It seems to work better with Windows 8 and 8.1 than the touchpad.

Great for a college student

I have used Toshiba laptops and that is why I bought this brand. I however am still trying to understand Windows 8. I overall am pleased with this laptop.

Responsive operation, bright screen, great keyboard, But rather slow to load upon start-up. Very inconvenient to have accessory ports on the right side instead of at the back. Too many unwanted pre-installed programs on the start-up screen.

I am new to a laptop, and purchased this one on a recommendation. Very pleased with it, but still getting use to using the mouse pad. I am learning as I go. Would be nice to have the instructions included with the purchase, not just on line. I am one of the few who does read them!

Speakers Stink

I had a dell and it was hooked up to a Bose external speaker system. I read the horrible reviews on the sound but figured it would be fine with the external speakers...I could not have been more wrong. Sound is atrocious. I am not quite sure how you can screw up the sound on a laptop so bad but they did.Horrible. I use to spend my time on line cranking my tunes or Pandora and I cannot now. If you like music do not buy this laptop...other than that it is a great unit............

T New laptop is faster, but has some of the same quirks as the old one (HP). Tried to use the finger scroll, but had too much touble with goofy stuff happening and had to go back to the wireless mouse. Was disappointed that after shopping for a new laptop, that by the time you add all the reqd software, the Toshiba was hardly the bargain I thought it would be.

Good battery life but no Bluetooth. Outer body is not hard enough specially at the back. Not the best key board or soft touch. Overall a value for money deal with 6GB or RAM.

Average in every way

This is a basic machine that handles fundamental tasks fine. It has, though, a variety of small frustrations that add up to a very mediocre experience. Several keys, for example, have to be punched hard to work. The mousepad is frustrating and it's difficult to find out how to change settings. The price was good.

Software

Overall rating: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5

Overall, this is a nice laptop. However, the software is the worst I have ever used. Microsoft has managed to this up. All of the ads that keep popping up while on the net allows very little time for surfing. I have tried to find out how to disable the ads and all of the redirecting to no avail. Tech support is almost non-existent. The knowledge base has nothing to do with the software problems.

The computer is quirky. Programming and set up are very difficult. Maybe good for a beginner or child.
