I remembered years ago when my nephew bought a toshiba laptop for his uncle. So, I asked him about it. I would much rather just have the normal desk top than all the apps but, once my nephew sat with me a few minutes, it was easy to learn. I haven't checked everything out but, I do enjoy using it. It is a little heavy but, it's what I wanted. I am mainly using it for reading but also enjoy doing my email from my recliner and facebook there also. I believe I would buy this same one again.

Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

THIS IS MY FIRST LAP TOP. I HAVE BEEN A DESK TOP USER FOR OVER 15 YEARS. I LIKE THE UNIT AND IT'S PERFORMANCE IS FINE FOR WHAT I NEED AND I LIKE THE VERSITILITY.HOWEVER WINDOW 8 IS STILL KIND OF HARD TO NAVAGATE THROUGH BUT ILL GET USED TO IT. I BOUGHT A TOSHIBA BECAUSE MY DAUGHTER IS ON HER SECOND ONE. THE FIRST ONE SHE BEAT THE H___ OUT OF WHILE SHE WAS IN COLLEGE AND SHE IS STILL USING HER SECOND ONE WHICH IS OVER 7 YEARS OLD AND STILL GOING STRONG. FOR THE PRICE THIS UNIT IS AN EXCELENT VALUE COMPARED TO OTHER BRANDS.

I have not used this laptop a lot, but so far it seems to do the things I need a laptop for. I have a Log Home business and store lots of plans, photos and documents. Send lots of E-mail messages. Mainly for use when we are away from home and our home computer. Have not had a reason to use it a lot yet. Still trying to learn about Windows 8. Was expecting the worst from reading reviews about Windows 8. Just a lot different than Windows 7. Trying to keep an open mind and learn a little at a time. So far able to get wherever I need to just a different way of getting there sometimes. The pad for moving the cursor around seems a little unresponsive, but I have very dry fingers. Seems if I use a little hand lotion it works a bit better.Overall very satisfied

This is my second laptop and I love it. While it is similar in style to my old computer, I have found it to be easier to use and Toshiba Tech Support is great. It's nice to see a product manual downloaded in the system as well as the 24/7 support. The laptop is light-weight and quite easy to handle. The programs that came with my Satellite are just what I needed, and I had done quite a bit of research before settling on this unit. Pricing for what you get is a great value, and can't be beat.

The only complaint I have is the keyboard. I am a secretary by trade and the keyboard just doesn't feel right. The space bar is too small and I keep hitting the alt key. That is frustrating. The angle which you need to place your hands is uncomfortable. Was going to replace desktop with this also...but am rethinking the keyboard. Find Windows 8 hard to get used to and not compatible with Windows XP things already have, which is annoying and did not know this prior. Outside of that good deal for the money spent and good second computer.

My opinion on the Toshiba Laptop computer is a great computer it is very easy to use I would recommend it to anyone who asked me about it. I enjoy it very much and would buy another in the future. Good Job, keep up the good work. I had to get use to the Windows 8 but once I familiarized myself with it not so bad of a program. I had heard a lot of people complaining about it but I find it very easy to use. Toshiba makes a good product I would continue to purchase them in the future. This is the second Toshiba Laptop I have owned I prefer it over others. I give a thumbs up to Toshiba Continue to make the best computers ever.

I'm overall happy with my purchase of the laptop and have had only one issue. The issue was related to a Windows Update KB2778344 which is incompatible with the AMD Display card drivers in the laptop. I was experiencing frequent Blue Screens until I uninstalled the update and blocked it from reinstalling per instructions on the Microsoft web site. I checked with Toshiba Support first but they were totally unaware of the issue. I also had to restore my OS as the frequent Blue Screens had damaged the system. Since uninstalling and blocking the Windows Update KB2778344 I have had no further issues and the laptop is working great. The purchase of this laptop was a great value for what you get and considering the low cost.

This laptop, (855D-S5320) was reasonably priced and performed well as a Win8 machine. I bought it to use as a Linux machine. The installation of Linux (UBUNTU 13) went smoothly and everything works well. I installed Oracle's Virtual Box with WinXP as a client. The 8 GB the laptop came with gives plenty of RAM to run both at once. You would do well with this machine whatever you purpose. My only regret is that, unlike my wife's Toshiba laptop, it doesn't have an eSata port.

I bought this laptop for travel. 6 months ago my ipad locked up and needed to connect to itunes. I found the least expensive laptop i could find. I have learned windows 8 well enough that it did not give me problems. so far this computer works very well. no problems with performance. The key board does have a little rattle while pressing the keys. Other than that this laptop works good. It starts up fast and does anything I want it to do. never locks up but gets a little slow when some program is updating.

I bought a Satellite C855D-S5320. No it is not as fast as my desk top p/c. Yes, I too hate Wondows 8. I would prefer Windows 7. Satellite C855D-S5320 works well enough for my intentions. I bought it so I could keep in touch with family while travelling. Hope it holds up. No I don't like keyboard, but it is a laptop. Battery lasts me only about 3.5-4 hours not 6 as claimed and I have it set on energy conserve. Gave it 4 stars as it seems like it will do what I want it to do, store photos, send e-mail use to Web to get info on sites before I arrive at them

I have only had my laptop for not quite two months. It works good for what I want it for. I do not care for the WIndows 8. I find it a little difficult to get around and find things, but overall the laptop works well and is doing what I want from it. The price was reasonable and other then the battery life not always lasting long and occasionally having trouble to boot up(which may be a user problem) it will do till I need something else.

For the most part this is a great computer. Personally, I do not particularly care for Windows 8. It's a pain. Other than that, the only other problem I have is that right from the time I took the computer out of the box to the present, I go end up with 3-4 "Your PC has experienced a problem and will now restart" messages and cycles per use. It gets irritating, to say the very least! It also did not appear to come with any sort of productivity software installed, which was extremely disappointing to me. Despite these issues, when I am not getting these annoying messages, the computer is fast, easy to see, and fun, once you get used to how Windows 8 works.

Not planning on using a touch screen so I will probably load Windows 7 on it, otherwise I like it.

My two biggest disappointment with this computer: 1) The trackpad was impossible to use. It jumped between unresponsive and overly responsive. Don't buy this laptop without an external mouse or trackball. 2) Windows 7 was not fun. I get that they want to make the OS as close to the mobile OS as possible, but the fact is that the mobile OS is comparatively awful because mobile devices don't have the same power as laptops or desktop units. Forcing users to figure out how to get away from the 'mobile experience' is a huge pain. Especially for older folks who weren't expecting it. Please let Microsoft know that they make the end user experience worse.

I like the windows 8 features, and they make the laptop look like the most superb match for any person that is craving a laptop. (well, that's how i saw it) i am a gamer, i play tons of games, and you need a high processor. this laptop is good if you dont really do much. if your a busy person with a good amount of stuff on it, the laptop's negative traits start to creep on your laptop. for example: it's running speed slows down, performance speed slows down. if this happens to you, get a laptop with a better processor. THIS IS NOT A GOOD LAPTOP FOR GAMING, THE PROCESSOR IS TOO SLOW. DO NOT USE THIS LAPTOP FOR THESE GAMES: call of duty grand theft auto minecraft blockland (pc only) dead frontier (pc only) If you noticed, all of these games have a multiplayer function.

Let me start out by saying this laptop looks amazing. The display is bright, but doesn't drain battery, it features what I've come to know from Toshiba, amd processors and graphics cards, except now with these newer laptops, they have four gigabytes of ram! Now for speed. Running applications is fine, no problems. When you get to running games such as Minecraft, TF2, Left 4 Dead, these games will run slower because of windows 8. Why? Well Windows 8 hogs hardware like crazy. I'm not sure if it's because the "live tiles" continue updating even when you're not looking at them, therefore hogging power. You should give people the option of windows 7 though. ANYWAY, enough about the OS (which I'll be changing soon) let's talk about physical characteristics. The screen feels more solid than older models, I haven't had any problems with the webcam, and I enjoy the full keyboard but it has a few problems. The keyboard feels dull when pressing buttons, which affects my typing speed. The trackpad is irritating to my fingers after just a short time of use. Battery is unobtrusive, but long lasting. It charges quickly and holds it. The trackpad will also occasionally stop registering touch, which I've fixed by changing palm sensitivity. To end, INVEST IN NEW OS, KEYBOARD SLOWS TYPING, TRACKPAD ISN'T VERY GOOD INVEST IN A MOUSE, BATTERY LIFE GOOD, DISPLAY IS AMAZING.

Well, when it said Windows 8, I thought it had Windows programs like word and office-wrong.

It appears to start back up when it decides to. I had a cheaper HP with the Windows 8 starter kit that was far preferable to this unit..

I've owned this laptop for about 4 months. I installed Microsoft office on it and uploaded about fifty pictures from CDs. Since then the laptop barely starts up and after you login you get the luxury of only being able to stare at your start up screen because it immediately freezes. Worst laptop ever!

I have had all types of computers from punched cards to AS-400 and all PC and midrange systems in between. They all worked. I bought a Satellite C855D less than a month ago. I'm writing this review from my Chrome-Book because the Toshiba just decided to enable a proxy server (I have never ever had one) and neither IE or Chrome can connect with the internet. I have tried to disable the proxy settings but it won't unclick the proxy button. Consequently, on the Toshiba, I can't even use Help. I shall reset all settings back to factory specs but, if it works, will be still worried that it might jusr do it again. SECOND, even when loading a browser - and I have 4GB RAM, it often (25% of the time) greyes-out and the error message says to wait. Overall I have never had this many problems. WRH

where do i start. it's user unfriendly and that's an understatement. i go to type and it the words aren't appearing as fast as i'm typing them so i'm always rewriting everything. when i try to download things it's always telling me reasons why this computer isn't able to download it. windows 8 is bad enough by itself. now it fell off the chair about 2 foot and the screen is all cracked and i can't bring myself to put any money into this piece of junk. i can't wait for the day i can smash it into smithereens.

Not Worth the Money at all

We bought the laptop thinking it was a good deal, but the computer lasted less than 3 months. To fix the LCD sceen would cost 2/3 of what we originally spent on the computer. We did not drop it. We did not sit on it. We did not put in by heat. They said it could be due to dust, but my house is not that dirty and we had a case for it. This was the worst money we ever spent. If dust is an issue and a laptop cannot sit in your lap without it breaking then you need to add filters to prevent damage. One another note...Windows 8 is not real user friendly compared to past software programs.

At first I thought it was Windows 8 I was having trouble with. So I gave it time to learn the new OS. This is my 3rd Toshiba laptop. Before that I was strictly Dell. My wife bought a Toshiba and it surprised me. Well this one is just a big ol' pile of junk. It locks up constantly. I only have 1 program installed and less than 3GB of photos. It is extremely slow going on the internet. Now 1 USB port has stopped working and now I had to go find a wireless mouse in the office cause the mousepad has quit as well. I figured it was a setting issue. it will not let me change the settings and doesn't recognize the mouse pad. I put it side by side with a comparably equipped Gateway and went to the same sites and opened the same programs. To put it kindly I could go and get another bottle of water out of the kitchen in the time it took to load this Toshiba. I ersonally think they loaded it with so many temporary apps that it cant process the load. And not surprisingly the store that sold it to me with the upgraded warranty has no clue how to resolve this and has even told me I should just buy a new laptop cause they have heard this before. But I get daily offers from Toshiba to purchase upgrades at midnight no matter what. Save time and buy something else. This one is going in my kids room so my 5 year old can explore monster jam websites. On second thought I don't want to put a bad taste in his mouth for computers at an early age

I cant play any videos or movies on my laptop! I know as the years go by our technology will progress. But this whole "app" generation theyre replacing everything with really needs to be simplified. I am only 24 and I was determined to take my laptop back after seeing how difficult it was to use. Very confusing and complicated. One of the main things I enjoyed with my old laptop was watching youtube videos and watching Netflix. Ive had this lap top for 2 months and Still have No Idea how to do just that. Terrible.

I was not familiar with teh new Windows when purchased the computer, however the sales man told me the system was user friendly. I do not think so. I was told the system was easy to navigate, again I do not think so. You have to be very careful when using the mouse because you can open and close without actually attempting to. I have had several Toshiba computers and this is by far the worst computer I have ever owned.

Either I have a lemon or a piece of junk. I heard nice things about Toshiba. So I was excited to get one. So either I have a very slow running computer that locks up on my all the time. Or the Toshiba is not a good computer. The keys don't work all the time either. Oh and my battery doesn't last 3 hours. Buyers beware... I'll save my money up again and go get me a HP again.

Don't give it 4 stars and then in your comment say "I love my laptop but it has [all these critical issues]... I noticed I am not the only person experiencing crashes with Firefox and I'm also having problems with the system itself crashing Daily. There is a serious problem with this computer. There needs to be a recall. Rank fairly, but smartly.

its slower than my old computer that I had for 6 years. is always drops me off the internet. thought maybe its was my router or modem so I bought new ones...didn't fix the issue! you have to hit the keys just right or they don't work. it will not upload photos at all. I have a photo disc in my computer (for weeks now) that I can not get out. it will not open!!! you can not watch Netflix, any short video or movie trailer on it. do not waste your money on such garbage!!!

I have been very disappointed with this laptop. The speakers sound like a child's speaker inside a tin can. The keyboard is almost unresponsive. The keys have to be pressed very hard and I have to redo a lot of words cause the letters don't work. The worst one is the f key. It almost never responds till I hit it really hard. It is not a case of this one is bad it is a case of a bad product all to gather as my husband has the exact same one that we got on the same day and they are both bad products.

I will never buy a pc again. I bought 3 pc's over the last 4 weeks and the components are cheap. They consistently fail. Window8 is the worst operating system ever! I turned all three pc's back to the reseller. I then bought a MacBook. Finally a computer that works!

The keys and keyboard are too small which makes typing difficult. The touchpad is unusable, which is compounded by the use of Windows 8 which relies on the touchpad to simulate finger swipes on a tablet. The screens continually change if you rest your palms on the top of the unit. Overall a very poor design. As a longtime Toshiba user I am totally dissatisfied with this machine.

The computer jumps screens in the middle of writing a word document or typing anything. It also has a tendency to start typing in the middle of a sentence instead of staying on rule. This is extremely aggervating and I may return it real soon

I have had several computers over the years and this is BY FAR the WORST computer I have EVER had! I have had it for 3 days now and am completely unsatisfied. It is more difficult to navigate and is extremely slow. Any time I scroll or perform any simple task, it freezes before it will complete it. Sometimes it will just freeze all together requiring me to refresh the whole page or even reboot the whole computer. Downloading takes FOREVER! Forget playing games or watching movies, You Tube, or anything like that. It continually freezes and the sound quality is horrible! It does have some nice features such as the apps but not worth it enough to keep this piece of junk. Save you money and get something else.
