The price performance of this laptop is way better than expected. Making the adjustment from Windows XP to 8.1 took a little time for me but I am very satisfied with the performance.

A Great buy for a great product

It's very easy to set-up, keyboard's ok and you can add, via USB, a real keyboard easily. I wish the battery life was longer, but it will keep you going for a few hours. Over all this appears to be a very nice laptop and the customer service is excellent. This is my third laptop and the best one of the three. It has nice features and it's inexpensive too.

Great Laptop

Out of the box and setup were super easy. Battery like is great 5+ hours, with a spreadsheet and internet open. Power on is quick. Value and performance are great. The only negative besides Win 8.1 is the keyboard. Its not bad or anything but I've typed on better.

very good price and nice features

We recently purchased our second Toshiba Laptop and we are pleased with its user friendly style. We were pleased with our first Toshiba which served us well. We recommend Toshiba.

I've never used a Toshiba before, but now I can't imagine ever buying anything else. I've read good reviews about this laptop and now I see that the reviews were right. Love my new Toshiba.

I really like this computer so far. The only problem that I have been experiencing so far is with the toshiba updates. Hopefully that problem will go away soon.

Good Basic Laptop at a Good Cost

Very easy to set-up and use. Nice price for what you get - processor, screen, ports, etc. I occasionally find the keyboard to be tricky to type on...have to push harder than other computers I've used. And, the mouse can be tricky and flip you over to your apps page without you even trying to. But does the trick if you need a simple laptop for internet browsing and picture/video viewing.

Good for the price

I needed a back up laptop since I work from home. I had a Toshiba Satellite in the past and was pleased with it. There are only two negative things that I have to say about this laptop. First, the quality of the sound is not good. Second, the touchpad is a pain. It is overly sensitive sometimes and sometimes you have to press on it several times to get it to do anything. Since I use an external keyboard and wireless mouse, this is not much of a concern for me.

I wiped Windows 8 OFF my laptop. GOOD RIDDANCE. a useless complicated unworkable piece of junk OS system. Now my laptop works.

Big switch for me from a desktop to laptop. The transition is terrible. I love the raised keyboard of the desktop. If my laptop had this feature I would be very happy.

Worst sound/speaker system ever

POSTED BY: Unhappy customer , rochester, ny

The speakers on my laptop are incredibly bad. I can live with that but when I hook my laptop up to other speakers, they still sound horrible! There is no where that I can find to adjust the quality of the sound going to the outside speakers. I never would have purchased this computer had I known this.

disappointed twice!

I purchased two c55d-a5175a laptops. The first had a faulty sound card and support recommended returning the product. I thought I would give it another try and get the same laptop. The second "brand new" laptop had a faulty wireless card. I found logs in the system of software repair attempts on the wireless adapter in October 2013, November 2013 (when the most recent update was released), February 2014, and I purchased the laptop in April 2014. This makes me wonder if it actually was a new product, or refurbished and sold as a new unit?

MSRP: $489.99
