I've been using this laptop for almost a month, and have been completely satisfied with it's performance. It's an entry level machine, thus you can't expect blazing performance. It was a life savior when our 6 year old Toshiba died suddenly. So far it's been fine for web surfing and emails, and using MS Office products. I found Windows 8 a challenge getting used to, but now I'm comfortable with it.

She is finally up to date on the technology front and I can't get the unit away from her now!!!

She loves researching things on the Internet and writing newsletters. It's great!)

My previous Lap Top was an "L" series Toshiba so I was at first reluctant to go with the present "C" series Lap Top. However I am very pleased with my purchase. I must admit Windows 8 took some getting used to, but I now prefer that version over Windows 7. I have read various customer comments on the internet regarding the model I purchased, and I find it difficult to believe that some persons have less than positive comments. For me this was an excellent choice.

Overall, I'm very pleased with my new Satellite laptop. It's screen and keyboard are larger than my previous Satellite; it weighs less; it has much more memory and disk space, it's faster -- and it cost a lot less! That's hard to beat. It took me a while to get used to the "bumpy" touch pad, but once I got used to it, it was fine. I don't like Windows 8 (other than its improved security), but that's not Toshiba's fault.

Very good for the price but I hate the Windows 8 installed on it. My son did a couple of fixes but the overall system of Windows 8 stinks- as my son says - it is not intutitive- that is you cannot figure things out on your own - you have to know the yucky little quirks they have built into it. It makes me hate and never want to use the laptop.

The first thing I noticed, was, of course, Windows 8. Definitive negative there. But if you stay away from the Start menu, it functions close enough to Windows 7, which I loved. It's a Toshiba, so it's very strong, and the battery life is excellent. I can normally get up to six hours without plugging it in. It's not a particularly fast computer, and the hard drive is rather small, but it was very cheap, so I would definitely recommend it if you're on a budget.

It's a decent little laptop for a high schooler

POSTED BY: skipshoots , richmond, va
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

This is a replacement for a similar machine that lasted barely 10 months of typical handling/usage by a high school junior. I'm not expecting it to hold up much better. However, for the price, it's a real bargain. I consider the extra warranty a combination between insurance and a rental fee. Except for how it gets banged around (which is typical of how teenagers treat their electronics), it otherwise doesn't get pushed very hard. It is used for school work (word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, research) and social media, but not for gaming or graphic arts or photo manipulation. For what it is and what it does, I'm pretty happy with it.

This laptop has the same specs as my desktop, but operates much slower often giving me a "high cpu usage" warning. This will be with one operation running, let alone multiple as I am used to. I've had to redo my specifications a couple of times for timing since it keeps blacking out and won't return without restarting. I reset eco but after it auto reset to manufacture setting I had to alter again since would happen after just two minutes. Still nice and glad I got it.

Satellite C855 Laptop

POSTED BY: Arcadoc , Shelby, AL
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

I am disappointed in this laptop. Windows 8 is fine, but the laptop itself is average at best. I don't care for the new keyboard configuration as some of the keys have either been resized or moved and thus make it more difficult to type proficiently. I normally type at 50-60wpm but this keyboard make it necessary for me to go back and correct my mistypes. The memory is barely enough to operate the laptop. It supports 16Gb but there is only 4Gb installed, which makes operating it very slow and difficult. I have had to order additional RAM in order to bring it up to a nominal level. Even my Toshiba A55 model, which has only 1Gb of RAM, operates faster, smoother and better than this new C855.

I bought this laptop because its a good brand and was a good price. Its very light and Compaq and has a lot of features. It has windows 8 but that's not an issue. There are programs to make windows 8 more like windows 7 if a user wants too. I returned the laptop after 3 days because there was problems with the DVD drive and windows update refused to update. I did not purchase a replacement Toshiba as I had already spent too much time on it. I'm not sure if it was a bad unit itself or a problem with the line. I did not want to find out. IN all fairness I did check other user reviews on various sites before buying it and the general consensus was that it was a decent budget laptop.

POSTED BY: Bera , Salem, OR
Overall rating: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5

I'm very frustrated because the keyboard has quit working on my Toshiba Satellite - not all of it, some of the top row keys work. It's not crumbs under the keyboard nor a liquid spill; I have been uber-careful to keep liquids away from the laptop, and to keep it covered. I can use the onscreen keyboard at the password prompt to get into the computer, and I was able to stream videos for a while. Today the mouse/cursor has mostly quit working. I have not had time to take the computer in due to travelling and being busy, and I'm glad I still have my old one. I've read reviews that sometimes the keyboard "just stops working" but usually starts up again after a reboot after a period. Mine has not.

This laptop is great; But I dislike the OS. I absolutely with a passion hate Windows 8. I do not like the Start Screen. I don't like having the live tiles. I feel like this OS was made for a tablet only and they should have continued the Windows 7 superbar style into their computer Operating Systems. Side panel is always coming up when I do not want it. When I try to move the cursor out of the top left corner, it changes the screen from the desktop to the photos screen to the start screen.

Windows 8 is the worst mess I have ever seen in my life. Couple that with the touchpad on this computer and you are going to be very unhappy!

Windows 8 is awful

I just recently found this email about the review and am entering my response. Windows 8 is the most difficult system to understand. There are several times I wanted to throw the laptop out the window because of the difficulty with trying to operate it. I have never been so frustrated about anything in all my life.

Garbage. It ran slow from day 1, and now 4 months later, it's a paperweight. I cannot boot to HDD, CD, or USB. I cannot even get to the BIOS screen. Total garbage. It goes straight to the splash screen when I turn it on, and just sits there. I have left it on for hours to see if it would finally boot to something. I have tried the Win8 ERD(which is 3 DVD's! but I'll leave that for another gripe) that I made when I first got the computer home. Nothing. I have booted ancient laptops with my Linux thumbdrive, but this thing...NOTHING has worked. Windows 8 is "lagware", at best, and the hardware for this laptop would be better suited for WinXP. I have been loyal to Toshiba up to this point, and hesitated buying this one, because I could not get it with Windows 7. Mistake. I think I'll be going with Acer for my next low-end laptop purchase.

I regret ever buying this laptop!

I bought this laptop the thinking that it was a great deal but I was proven wrong. It is very laggy and freezes to the point that I don't want to use it. I can't even watch videos on youtube because the processor is so slow. I am looking to buy another computer because I hate it so much!

I have 2 toshiba Laptops. The one that I have had for years is excellent. But this new one has caused me nothing but headaches. Purchased it June 3rd 2013 and in less than a month I have had it in to the geek squad 4 or 5 times. I told them if I have to bring it in again I want a new one. The main problem is with the Wi-Fi.

I have had the laptop for less than a month and it's already giving me problems. The laptop flickers when am typing and the screen just goes black, the screen goes on and off while am in the middle of typing, seems like some hard drive issues. Now am without a laptop for 2 weeks.

Worst Laptop Ever

I purchased this laptop on May 12 and less than a month later, the laptop froze on the start up screen. I own a number of different computers, including several apples and this is the only time I have run into problems. I am at a loss for words and would rather not say anything else about this laptop, because it would have appropriate language.

I'm Sorry I Bought It

The machine came pre-installed with Windows 8 and could not be downgraded to a system that worked. I've had to restore to factory defaults multiple times because standard apps simply stop working. I conclude this is a Toshiba issue because a week earlier I purchased a similar machine from a different manufacturer with Windows 8 and it works without a hitch. Apparently Toshiba's modifications make Windows unstable. I will never buy a Toshiba product again.

I purchased this computer for my daughter and even though it is registered in her name, I continue to get emails as if I am the owner. She had the computer for 3 weeks, and it had to be sent back to the factory from Best Buy for a new hard drive. Guess I should have purchased her a HP, like I have.

I am so sorry I bought this computer

Windows 8 is the biggest piece of junk I've ever used. the touchpad on my computer is so terrible it's almost impossible to use. there's not even a word pad or notepad that I can find that you can copy and paste on something to this computer. do not buy this. I have loved Windows and Microsoft for years this is a total piece of junk.

Bad product

The operation and function was so bad that I returned it to the store, there I met another also returning the item. Discussing with workers at several different stores they all agreed they would not recommend your product.

It's so freaking slow!
