We have had our desktop computer for 5+ years, and recently felt the need to expand. The low price of the Toshiba Satellite 305 was what originally caught our attention. Being completely new to laptops, obviously this purchase was a big decision and we didn't want to be disappointed. We weren't. We now like our laptop better that our trusty old desktop.

I was recently laid off and needed to get a laptop for my job search with value in mind. The Toshiba has done well. It stays cool (as opposed to the Dells I used at my previous job) no matter how long I leave it on. Battery life is around 2 hours. Vista Basic with 2 gig of ram was enough for me at this time. It scoots around the internet fine, though it seems to slow a bit if you have multipe users logged on, but that is to be expected. I have enjoyed it so far. I like the big screen. I may get a shade to block out glare, but other than that, I consider it money very well spent.

POSTED BY: SplOps73
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

Due to work and volunteer involvement, I need a laptop which I purchased about a year ago. Since then my needs have increased and I've purchased two more, one of which is the the 5944 which I'm not using at this time because of materials being accessed. The price is excellent and features are awesome some of which I haven't used as yet like connect the computer to the television which I was told I could do. For my initial uses, I only have 2 concerns that impact me and slow me down and at times mess up my data. The first is that when a flash card is place into the laptop, information is transferred quickly and accurately. However, the laptop won't allow deletion of data on the memory sticks and this could result in a security issue because it shows it being deleted but when placed on another computer it's still there. The second issue is that it will only allow so much data to be tranferred and then it blanks out windows. Both issues are easily remedied by taking and deleting the flash on another computer and as far as the window freeze, rebooting brings things back on line. Occasionally, this can be a time waster, especially if I'm multitasking. Other than that I am extremely happy so far with the features and response and speed

I picked mine up on sale and couldn't believe that it could be that good for that price. It has a big screen with great resolution and the dual-core processor makes a noticable difference in speed over single CPU systems. A generous disk drive makes it practical for any application. A DJ could store years worth of music on it and have room left over.

I really enjoy all the features the Laptop has to offer. When I first purchased it I was slightly concerned being comfortable and proficient with the Windows basic for so many years I was waiting to be intimidated by Vista and all of the new features like Config-Free. I couldn't be more wrong and at the same time be happy about being wrong. I enjoy this computer whole heartedly and will recommend it to anyone looking to purchase or anyone interested in listening. Thank you Toshiba for making my new Laptop affordable, easy to use, and enjoyable to be productive.

Purchased as a replacement to my 8 year old desktop. I have been very happy with the laptop, just what I expected. Screen size is more than enough, weight is good around the house. Not so great as a travel laptop, it's a little bulky, but great at home. Features are great, would be nice to have bluetooth, but no big deal. Battery life isn't horrible, but could be better. Couldn't beat the price and feature list. Overall, I have been very happy with the laptop and would recommend it to anyone looking for a decent laptop around their house.

I searched the ads for a while and knew that I wanted a laptop for pics and music primarily. Internet and games also, but nothing high intensity. I was thrilled that it had a DVD RW optical drive so if I should choose to burn I could. Though I have yet to. I have played dvd's and it did great. The only slight problem was when I was playing around with the Windows Movie maker. After I loaded the pics and picked the transitions I added a video clip and it froze. The program saved my progress before it shut down which was cool. I reopened my file and added an audio clip and it froze again. This time it didn't save my progress. I reopened and added and edited the audio clip to fit the slideshow portion and it froze again. I eventually finished and was happy with the results, but it seemed like it had a hard time handling the program even though it was a preinstalled one. I haven't used the program again and have had no problems at all and since. I did not purchase the laptop for video editing so I'm not worried about it. Over all I am EXTREAMLY satisfied.

Looking for a practical, all-around, use-it-anywhere notebook computer?...Here it is!...The good points?...All of the factors you can consider during purchasing (price, functionality, ease-of-use, adaptability, etc.) are easily consolidated in this model. The bad points: like all mobile computers, we need long-lasting battery power, which will come in time; needs a larger hard drive (> 250GB). Overall, an extreme workhouse for all home/business work, make you feel good with the investment of those hard-earned dollars.

Some say that Core 2 Duo is a must. Truth is for many applications 1 megabyte more L2 cache is marginal in terms of performance boost. My first Toshiba turns out to be very satisfactory, so I bought this one for a dual core. What I like best about Toshiba laptop is the display. Toshiba's display turns out to be the best of all laptops I have used so far. 15" size fits very well to the long hours I spend on computer everyday...

The best computer that I have ever had. The operating system is better than XP. Must redo my printer device but that is not really an issue. Loaded Maleware for virus checking. Also loaded procexp.exe in case a virus takes over and I can kill it. (Got to rename it to explorer.exe to fake out the viruses.) Low cost, great features. Does not run hot unless you are scanning or doing SETI crunches. All other downloaded apps work just great.

I couldn't answer the second question on this review regarding recommending this product because the yes button was off the screen. So, we would most definitely recommend this to a friend. We love it.

I had a laptop that overheated, with 45 minute battery life that just died so this was an unplanned replacment. I simply wanted a replacement, but realized I wanted something faster and had more storage..I was beyond pleased when the wireless range was increased by more than 50% over the old. The performance compared to the single processor vista restored my faith in not only Vista, but a laptop as a viable solution. The front side SD card reader is nice as well. My only complaint is no USB connections in the back. I use my laptop for editiing photos, internet access, and VPN to work...from mash of the button to flash of the sign in is less than 30 seconds...Battery life is excellent, and overall I'm super pleased.

My Toshiba Satellite laptop was purchased for writing while traveling. It's been through airport security scanners, dropped, rained on, carried up a mountain, and plugged in in three different countries. I think I have an excellent laptop for the price. I was surprised at its durability, reliability and ease of use. I have used IBM Thinkpads and Panasonics in the past, but my Toshiba laptop is the most reliable one I have purchased. My only concern is that the lid is so flexible - it is easy to press the lid down, which pushes the screen onto the rows of keys, leaving tiny rows of indentations in the screen. These do not affect its performance in any way, though.

For the most part, this product gets the job done. The technical specs are good, the monitor is a nice wide screen. The price is pretty much unbeatable. It has three USB ports. My biggest complaint is the software and the OS. Like most retail level computers, it come preinstalled with a lot of junk software, and not enough of the good stuff (Office 07, anti-virus). You have to buy this stuff seperately. As far as the OS, Vista is a bit of a pain if you've never used it. It frequently asks for permission to do anything - which is both good and bad.

I bought this laptop for my son to take to college. We looked at more expensive laptops, but since he will be using it pretty much exclusively to write papers and "do Facebook", we couldn't see any advantage to spending 2 to 3 times the money for more performance. The hard drive is plenty big, and unless you have 10 apps open or are running a number crunching app, the speed is fine. Big, bright display and surprisingly good battery life.

It's not bad.

This is the third Toshiba I've owned; as always, the L305 is another true workhorse. (I tend to use my computers till they give up the ghost totally: and for Toshibas; that time is LONG past the warranty end). Easy to navigate; lightweight but sturdy; controls on the FRONT of the computer (such a logical concept, but so few offer this!). Lots of bang for the bucks.

Normally I would not have bought this machine but financial circumstances had me selecting best for least. (I bought this on sale below MSRP.) Biggest complaint is, as always, they use both memory slots so you MUST buy (2) - 2G cards to get full memory capacity. Great machine for basic stuff but, hey, it is a basic box. You can get a lot more laptop out there but all things cost and this is great value for cost. You ARE getting what you paid for. I'm happy-and I am not a Toshiba person!

This laptop functions very well. The battery life is impressive, but if you let it all the way out, glitches seem to occur in the wireless internet conection. This is easily fixed by restarting the laptop, or avoided by plugging in the laptop when the battery runs low, but it can be frustrating for the non-computer savy. Otherwise the computer is exellent. The keypad is very similar to a desktop keyboard and very responsive. The mouse pad tracks well and is very responsive, however it does lack the usefull scroll bar. DVDs play quite well and the picture is superb, even from different angles. The screen does darken slightly when running on battery power, but this doesn't inhibit a clear picture.

It's a little small for what I'm using it for. I also wish that there was an XP downgrade available because Vista is such a RAM eater. But, for the price I think that it's a winner. It's well-built, etc. However, I don't know about Toshiba's Customer service yet so I can't coment on that. If you're using this laptop to surf the web, check email or use Office apps, you can't go wrong. One big problem, the battery only lasts about 2 hours.

I purchased this in lieu of a netbook because I really wasn't fired up about the small keyboard, display, etc on the smaller models. I have a Dell desktop that handles the heavy lifting (music, photos, document storage), so I really view this as simply an appliance; just a laptop for use in the living room while one or the other of us is watching tv. Great speed, I like Vista, wireless runs really well and connects within seconds of turning the machine on. The only thing I think it should have at this price is a web cam, but oh well. This is my second Toshiba laptop and like the first one, this machine seems to be solid.

I purchased this laptop as a tool to aid in my job search, it gives me portability and a dedicated place to store all things job related. It may not be the fastest machine, but it does perform decently for my documents, spreadsheets and internet access. Overall I am happy with this purchase.

Laptop is overall good, but the main problem is battery. I was used to Dell earlier, and when compared I feel battery is not apprecialbe in Toshiba even am using the power saver plan, and that too my laptop age is just few months.

This laptop works just fine for surfing the web and playing games and watching some movies.The performance isnt that great on transferring data from hard drive to harddrive.as i was saying about the movies some movies will not play.It would be good for travel if you dont want to be lugging around an expensive laptop for the price it is descent.

I traded this in because my other one was damaged. I got a great deal on that one and had to downgrade to this one. i was very upset they wouldnt give me the same one back.

This was my first laptop buy and after purchasing it I found that I would like some different features and a different Toshiba model. For the money this, so far, is a fair/good purchase.

The computer is fast. However, sometimes it gets stuck shutting down. The battery life last about an hour. This is the third Toshiba I have owned.

Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

I like the laptop itself my seccond Toshiba. But I hate the fact that I keep getting popups that tell me my NOrton is expiring. this should be standfard for 1 year. And I HATE that my office is a 60 day trial. I am going to college and it is not good to have to shell out more money. This also should be standard. I was not given any options to change thesde two things.

I am disappointed that all microsoft office products are not included. The price is high enough that if I would have known that they weren't included I would not have purchased this product.

Fine, if all you want is e-mail and basic web-surfing. Won't handle music or even play a basic DVD. A solid laptop for a minimal user.

This laptop was a gift for my daughter's high school graduation. I have had trouble with it since opening the box. It won't go on the internet using my wireless connection. My laptop and other friend's laptops haven't had this problem. I have spent time taking Toshiba and The Geek Squad with no success. I guess this computer will be getting returned.

I am pleased with the laptop overall. I only needed for short travel trips. Overall the unit is very good. The only thing I am not happy with is the battery life. It will only run about an hour to an hour and a half.

Don't Like Vista

POSTED BY: Jim , Tucson, AZ
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

I thought I would try the machine with Vista but after several annoying problems I installed win XP Pro. The Vista slide show was slow to start and actions had to be taken to start it. Also, Vista is too bloated with too many features all trying to run at the same time. Every time a program is install Vista asks twice to OK install.

I have had my satellite laptop for a little over a month now and over all it works great,,, I have been having this wierd keyboard issue,, where the number 7 keeps popping up when I type. I have tried to reinstall the keyboard driver and even the OS and the Bios.... nothing seems to fix this issue... this laptop is way to new to have this kind of problem..

The feautures are so common as of other laptops. The main problem with this laptop is battery life, this will not in synch with the icon showing taskbar. Taskbar shows the remianing time as more than one hr, but it works for just 15-20mts even I set in power saver plan. Except battery other things are really good, and I feel all other feautures are much more common.Price wise this is best, you can get a good laptop with the affordable price.Softwares that are provided are also much appreciable.

I bought this laptop because I had a Grandchild due any day, and wanted a way to stay in touch other than the phone with my family. Now I have the ability to send emails with pictures, recieve new pictures from the proud parents, and none of it has been to hard to understand! I do miss the fact that it didnt come with a Microsoft Office like my old desk top did, but I will purchase that and then I will truly have everything I need in a nice little space saving laptop.
