The best computer for that price

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

I bought this laptop 1 month ago and I love it! It has a really good performance and is really fast. I enjoy using it to watch movies because of its high quality images. I work a lot with numbers and Excel for that reason the number pad is really useful.

Fast and Sleek, hot rod style

This is my fourth Toshiba and I have been owner of HP and Acer. This by far is the best deal I have ever found. 64bit 4G ram 320GB hdd. Light with long battery life. I have not had any Problems with any Toshiba laptops yet. This one is fast and easy to setup. love homegroup and other software. I own a Toshiba A505-6960 6980 6025 and now the l655-s5117 I highly recommend Toshiba to everyone.

After having PC's for years and seen and used older laptops I was convinced I would never want one. Then my son brought his new Satellite by. Its better than my latest PC with larger keys making it easier to use as well as faster. Great machine

This is a great computer. This is our second Toshiba and so far we are huge fans! My ONLY complaint is that the USB slots are at the front right hand corner of the computer. So plugging in a wireless mouse you are always bumping into the USB part of the mouse. I did get a nano mouse which helped but I would have preferred them to the back of the computer or on the left side. No huge deal thought. GREAT computer and very, very happy with the purchase.

Everything seems to be working great. The only complaint I've got (and it's a bit nit-picky) is that it could you one or two more USB ports. It's kind of a pain having to swap things around constantly when it only has two.

Beautiful screen, fast and loaded with great features. 64bit 4gb ram. lasted almost 6 hours on a charge. This is my 4th toshiba and have never had any problems with any of them. This is very light and a pleasure to use. You just gotta be lucky enough to find one now. good luck

Addicted to TOSHIBA

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

This is my second TOSHIBA Laptop, and I'm extremely happy with it. The first one was a true "veteran" that served more than four years, before I decided that is time for new recruit! Personally, for me, this model was the best choice not because I'm addicted to TOSHIBA but rather that it was the BEST choice for the price, processor and memory. I read in previous comments that some users were complaining from the glance coverage and the numerous fingerprints, other were complaining that the touch pad is slightly to the left of the laptop, BUT is perfectly centered to the keyboard. I don't any problems with these issues. Since the first TOSHIBA that I still have I highly recommend this brand of laptops to anyone that I know. I even convinced some of my most prejudice friends to buy Toshiba instead of Sony... So far, no one is complaining of their choice. If you are looking for a highly reliable laptop for everyday use this the right choice!

Great performance, great price

Good laptop, plenty of speed, Windows 7 runs quick. Sufficient hard drive space, ram, and processor for the price. Looks good, battery life is good. Only issue is the viewing angle of the screen. You almost have to tilt the screen back a little bit. Looks great though, for the price i love it!!!

I was looking for an inexpensive simple reliable laptop. It was relatively inexpensive and I expected the worst. I was pleasantly surprised. It handles multitasking well and the full sized keyboard is a plus. It is also possible to get 4+ hours of use out of the battery. The camera image is sharp and great for Skype.

adequate

POSTED BY: vonnie , bloomfield, nj
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

this model is adequate. there are no special features, the battery life is mediocre, and it is heavy. however, it performs well and is reasonably priced. no major complaints, but nothing to write home about either.

Great value, touchpad needs improvement

POSTED BY: Mike , Hillsborough, NC
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

The performance of this laptop is great and I love the extra storage. The touch pad location takes some getting used to - it's off-center due to addition of numeric keypad. Too early to speak on battery life. Quality of display is a little grainy/blurry given today's technology. Would give the unit a solid B.

Best Laptop for daily use

POSTED BY: Praveen , Providence, RI
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

First, let me tell you that Toshiba Satellite L655 is great value for money . It has the features which I required (except top end graphics, however, I am not interested in playing games, that said). I miss Gigabit Ethernet; since this laptop only supports 10/100 Ethernet interface, so if you thinking of transferring files between systems will be slower. Second, does not have HDMI port. And no anti-glare coat on the screen, will be difficult to use in sun light. I have already recommended this laptop to my friends, however, it was out of stock within hours, I hope they stock enough for customers. Best of luck

I am a light computer user. I use my laptop for surfing, uploading pics and storing them. I am still learning the features of my new computer, but have a complaint. I do not like the touchpad. When i move my finger around on it, somehow it increases or decreases the size of the screen. It is quite annoying especially since i do not know how to fix it once it happens. I also dont love the buttons under the touchpad-i dont find them as comfortable as my work laptop. But to be fair the computer is quick, smooth and sleek.

Laptop seems to run slow especially since I have very little downloaded on it. I chose Toshiba over your competitor as I previously owned one. Thought sure a 4GB was going to be a charm. Isn't the case! What a shame!

The L655 Laptop has functioned well overall and the Battery life has been better than expected. However, during the first month I have used it, Windows has shut down for unknown reasons several times. It has rebooted successfully so far and has not shut down in the last 4 days.

Does everything you need; has convenient card reader and USB ports. Not a lot of junk preloaded on it but some. Shiny finish shows finger prints; a textured finish would be more practical. Battery life has been very poor. Lucky to get 2 hours; literature says it should get over 5. Overall, for the money, a good buy.

The speakers/sound is really poor. It is too heavy to take around with you. I wish I could trade it in for a different model. Don't buy a Laptop with a camera - You can't move it unless you move the screen ! Buy an aftermarket camera.

Difficult to use this computer

POSTED BY: Richie , Mid-Michigan
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

I am not happy with this laptop. It is not very ergonomic. The keyboard is hard to use. The depressions on the keys are so slight that it is difficult to tell if you ore "on" a key or not. The littl bumps on the "F" and "J" keys are too small to feel, so you have to look to see it your fingers are on the right keys or not. The keys have almost no space between them so it is very easy to "fat finger" this keyboard and get two keys at a time instead of just the one you are trying to get. Then there is the touchpad -- it is also very frustrating and difficult to use. There is no edge on the touchpad to let you feel where you are -- the touchpad the same level as the panel in which it sits so you can not feel where you are. The touchpad is also almost the same color as the panel, so you can not tell where the touchpad is by looking unless you have very good lighting. I am sorry that I bought this laptop. On top of all the ergonomic problems, this laptop is also a fingerprint and smudge magnet-- it is impossible to keep it clean because of the super shiny finish on the case.
