This is my second Toshiba laptop. The first one was plagued with software problems. Mechanically it was good. That is why I decided to buy a second Toshiba. The software troubles have disappeared, and other than a few issues of plugs being in an inconvenient place, this one seems to be good. The power cord plug is directly behind the DVD slot and the cord most often interferes with the opening of the DVD drive. There is a USB plug right in front of the DVD drive and if you use that plug it too interferes with the DVD slot. A better place for both the power plug and USB port would have been at the rear of the computer.

I love this laptop. It does just about everything I could ever want a laptop to do. It has great functionality and userability. The 17" screen is amazing and the truBrite technology is fantastic. I use my laptop for personal and business use. The only con that I have with the computer is I love to play online gaming especially World of Warcraft. The graphics engine is good but not great. Obviously the computer is not built for gaming but even on the lowest graphic settings for the game it will tend to lag a little bit. Maybe a small upgrade to this like going to a 512 MB ATI card or 1GB standalone with the dynamic allocations would be a good feature to give this computer a complete 5 star rating.

Since my computer is on most of the day and night, I will walk away from it... sometimes, just for a few minutes... and it will shut down... eventhough my power is plugged in... I can understand a shutdown after an hour... but... ten minutes or so... is aggravating... there must be a setting, but I have failed at finding it. BOTTOM LINE: Toshiba makes a great laptop. I could use a few more USB ports... 3 just isn't enough for external mouse, keyboard, printer, harddrives, and thumbdrives... understand; I USE this computer... pushing it all the time.

POSTED BY: Lisa , Grand Rapids, Michigan
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

The big screen is great. Works quite well for internet and bookkeeping software. One prob we ran into was getting it to recognize the other computers on our home network. This is a Microsoft Vista problem, not a Toshiba problem, but goes along with having a new computer. Also, I don't care for all the free software and links for promotional stuff that comes already loaded on the machine. I'm not very tech-confident, so cleaning the unneccessary stuff off feels like a chore. Again, that's likely to be something you run into with any new computer, not necessarily Toshiba. Finally, I really like the size of the wide screen and keyboard that includes a keypad, but none of my old computer bags are large enough to hold it. I have to buy a new one. Other than that, it's a great machine!

It was on sale and then when I got to the store, it was even more on sale than the newspaper flyer. The battery life is not bad, I just wish it was longer and it had a light to light the keypad like my old Toshiba. Other than that - I love it, just the way it is.

POSTED BY: freednighthawk , Taylorsville Utah.
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

Okay, so this laptop, while obviously not top of the line, is still one of the best "bang for the buck" deals you can get. Similar laptops from other brands can easily cost double. The screen is nice and bright, easily readable, graphics and movies look great on it. The keyboard is nice and large, easily useable, and the number pad is a nice touch. The webcam is incredibly sharp, even in darker environments. The volume control on the front of the laptop is also very usefull. The audio itself is actualy surprisingly loud. Though, obviously, it's a laptop, so dont expect full range sound. The media control buttons are also well layed out, and easy to figure out what they are at a glance. Now obviously, for such a great deal, you do have to forfeit some features. My biggest complainst are the lack of DVI or HDMI output. Only VGA, which is a quickly dieing standard. Also, the Radeon 3100 chipset, while a very good mobile chipset, is not capable of running the newest games at anything above "mid graphics". Not particularly shocking, of coarse, but keep in mind, if you're a gamer, this laptop is probably not for you. Also, this laptop can get very warm. Not a huge issue, but it does make for a somewhat uncomfortable experiance if trying to use it as a "laptop".

This computer is great....I love the 17" screen. My only problem is that videos take a while to load and does not load fast enough so video stops and starts. Also, it really needs to come with an already loaded recovery disc which would assure that it's done correctly. This is too important to leave in the hands of amateurs.

I bought mine in April and I really like it. The only complaints I have are: 1. Wish it had a faster processor (has the RM-72 - 210 ghz). 2. The battery doesn't last long, but that is primarily my fault because I keep it set to high performance. 3. I wish it came with the 64 bit Vista. Other than that it is a great all around computer. I really like that I can change the performance to save on the battery, but I always keep it to High performance. I added and additional gig of RAM to the max of 4, very easy process. If it took 5 minutes I would be surprised. I love the keyboard with the numeric key pad. I will never buy another laptop without it, it is so convenient. I would give it 4 1/2 stars.

The touch pad is the worst that I have had to deal with is a long time. I worst one was the little joy stick that were in the middle of the keyboard.

I am still on a learning curve. I do not believe I will ever understand all the features and options it offers. It runs much hotter than I expected. I have a pad that I sit it on to help dissipate heat. I have not used it anywhere except at home, so I am not sure of battery life or how it compares to other laptops

Good laptop for the money

Very good product especially for the price. I have had other Toshiba laptops and have really enjoyed them. Only downfall is the battery life

For a beginner, this machine is not the best. You have to download your manual. to find out things work. You also have to make your own Recovery and Applicatioin dics. A beginner may not know how, what, or when to use the disc. A simple manual would have be of great benefit.

I am enjoying having a laptop I can depend on. The number keypad is wonderful for spreadsheets as well as the 17 inch screen.

I am pleased with it. I want to program music, so hopefully it'll process everything fast enough. Everything seems to run fine right now. I like it. Let me tell you, the laptop does have a solid feel to it. I don't have much more to say. Thank you for making another quality product, Toshiba!

I purchased this a little over a month ago as a replacement for my desktop. I find myself using it more and more, and for more things than I intended to use it. No problems with any of the features, and everything is working great. Would definatly purchase this agian.

It does the job well...

This laptop has a nice wide screen, easy keys... I don't like the touch pad, so I got an after-market USB mouse, and it works just fine. The computer has occasionally failed to completely start up, which is annoying; I simply turn it off & back on, which always works. Don't care for Vista, either...

For the most part is excellent

This laptop is very very good. It's fast and it comes with everything I need for college. However there is a blue dot on the screen that will not go away. I think it may be a dead pixel. I have had the computer for about 4 months

Great Laptop for the price!!!

I really like this laptop. I had a laptop from another company, and liked that one until it got stolen. With a limited budget (and it not being insured) I bought myself a Satellite. Actually, it was priced less than my original, but is better equipped. So far, I'm happy with the choice!

Even though it can't play the newest games with the highest settings, it can do pretty much anything else just fine.

Decent mid level laptop

The only reason I won't recommend this is because of the display issues. I work in the tech field and am used to running dual monitors. If I hook up a second monitor I will get graphics card errors within 5 minutes. The card overheats too easily. My work around is to us a laptop fan (underneath) and to use a usb fan pointing directly where it heats up on the left side

Laptop may be ok, but I have another PC and both have VISTA operating system. I've thought about returning them, I hate Vista. It may be good for business people, but for everyday use it is harder to use.

The laptop itself is fine, however, VISTA is awful. I want XP back. The operating system needs to be replaced. It lowers my opinion of the entire laptop.

Power cord input location is poor, should be in the back, not the side. USB port location poor, should also be in back, not sides, or if necessary out of the monitor, I use a mouse instead of the touchpad and the side ports are in the way.

Upgraded to 4 GB ram, still slow. Set the power options to never sleep or standby and it likes to crash after being on for a few hours. With the screensaver on it will crash in less then a hour.

Sorry, but I can't recommend this product. Two weeks after I bought it, I had to bring it back for hard drive replacement or repair, because windows will not open half the time. It has been at the repair place for two days, and has not yet been fixed. I had my previous laptop in the same location for many years, and had no problems with it. The only silver lining is that it is covered under your warranty.

Very dissapointed

Each time I turned on my Toshiba something else would not work. It started with the windows sidebar and every time there after there was another problem. The last time I turned on the Laptop it went straight into System Restore. Needless to say, I lost all of my files that were transfered from my Old computer. I returned my Toshiba and got my $$$ back.

I like the monitor and the keyboard has a good feel to it. I'm not sure if it is the AMD processor (which I have used before with no issues) or Vista or the Toshiba hardware (I have a Toshiba at work with XP Pro and no issues) but the result is deadly. Sometimes it will catch itself and just reboot Windows Explorer. Sometimes I have to do a hard boot. Good price but considering the stability issues I would say skip it.
