Best Computer I have ever owned

POSTED BY: Leadslinger , Pittsburg, CA
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

I have owned computers since the advent of the first desk top models. I even operated a Commodor early on. The Toshiba came to the rescue as an off brand laptop threatened to destroy all of my data. The Toshiba uploaded all of my data and kept me in business just days before my old laptop crashed forever. Saved my job and my quality of life. It doesn't get better than that. Thanks Toshiba!!

Very Happy Customer!

I have not had the opportunity to realize as yet, all the features offered, however so far, I can say I would rate this Laptop as 5 star.

Excellent tech support

My laptop is fantastic. What impresses me even more is the fact that anytime I call the help line for whatever reason someone answers the phone in less than two minutes and stays with me until my problem is solved. Better than that I can actually understand what they are saying!

My First Laptop

The L305-S5918 does everything I expected it to. It's faster than my desktop computer. The screen is very clear. Vista Home Premium is a definite plus. I had one question and called for technical assistance. My call was answered immediately. No waits at all. The only negative with this computer is that it does not come with a Vista installation disk.

Really Great Laptop

We bought two of these laptops and they're great! We bought them to run some specific software. The graphics are amazing, they have plenty of memory and speed for our applications, and overall we are more than satisfied with our purchase. We got them at a great price, too.

Gotta Love this laptop!

For the economical price, to the high end features, this is one great little laptop. It has a DVD burner, a CDR, 2GB Ram, 15.5" display, HiFi land and mobile internet, and a standard 56K dial up modem all installed. Highly recommended.

Third Satellite/Toshiba laptop owned. This laptop satisfies my needs and functions great, even after owning it for about a year. It is cheap and will suit the average laptop user's needs.

had a little problem verifying what a T3400 processor really was. notebook functions just as i needed it to. seems that some S5918 come with built in video. this one didn't.

This is my third Toshiba. Each has served me well. I am finding it a little difficult to adjust to Vista after using 98 and XP. It seems some programs will not work with vista.

Decent Machine for the price

This was an emergency laptop purchase, and I haven't regretted it. Seems solid enough. The Caps Lock key is lit when on (nice), but the right hand edge of that key sticks up too high and I'm constantly pressing it my accident (not nice). A good purchase for the price.

I wanted a low cost note book to perform some basic tasks and mostly link into my work so that I did not have to be present to get work done. My L305 was a perfect solution - very happy with purchase!

Good Laptop For Students, Not For Multi-Media

POSTED BY: Lovinglife , San Diego, CA
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

Pros: (1) Low price. (2) Fast. (3) Runs cooler than our 16" HP laptop and way, way cooler than our 15.4" and 17" Dell laptops which prematurely killed one of the batteries. Cons: (1) White is not truly white. There is a slight bluish tint. (2) The speakers sound scratchy when volume is turned on high. On low - medium volume, the sound is okay but not as good as the Dells or HP. A good pair of external speakers would remedy this problem. [Side note: Something I also noticed is that music/movie sounded better when played with Windows Media Player than with Media Player Classic (K-Lite Mega Codec 4.8.9) even when both players' equalizers were set the same way.]

MSRP: $499.99
