This 17 inch laptop, is lightweight with a great display. I'll admit I was freaked out about learning windows 8, but seriously, once you get the hang of it, you will never want to go back to the 'old' way. Love this pc!

This laptop has been a real pleasure to work on. It starts up and shuts down quickly and is very reliable. I had not worked with Windows 8 before but I am also enjoying it. Great value for the money in this laptop.

windows 8.1 is a terrible operating system. I should have just bought a tablet. the Toshiba equipment is nice and good value for the money but the operating system is a nightmare. I replaced an old windows XP system and regret it every time I use windows 8.1!

I bought this laptop because I wanted one that had a large screen, ample storage, and performed well. I got all of these and more. My old laptop ran way too hot, so I could never work with it on my lap without using a tray. With this machine, I don't think it ever gets above room temperature! I also like the keyboard with the "rubbery" feel to the keys. Well done, Toshiba!

It took a long time for me to decide on a laptop. Things are getting smaller and smaller and I really wanted something that was almost like my old pc. The big screen and raised letter keyboard fit the bill. Not too expensive and so far, an excellent choice.

This is the third in a series of Toshiba Laptops for this family. This particular Laptop is being used for Worship Services, for everything from scriptures to music backing tracks and to date has performed flawlessly. It is fast as well as reliable. The large display is better than expected and is a plus in the environment it is being used in. There is no doubt that we will be Toshiba customers for a long time to come.

I've waited quite a while for my Toshiba. After being involved in a laptop review at work where Toshiba proved to be the most durable and overall most versatile laptop for our use in an engineering group of approximately 150 engineers I purchased Toshiba LTs for my daughter in college and my granddaughter, then I retired, so my funding was limited but I finally got mine and I love it.

I received my new laptop as a gift from my son. I am having a little trouble adapting to it and getting the right settings for me. I am happy with the large screen. I have yet to obtain a mouse and mess up sometimes with the little pad. My granddaughter likes it so she can play games and of course she uses it better than I do. I am looking forward to a long and happy union with Toshiba.

I used Toshiba Satellite in the past. I had a A130-S6247. That computer lasted from January 30, 2007-December 29, 2013. It treated me well, and I ended up choosing another Toshiba Satellite brand over a Dell Inspiron because of the longevity. I know this laptop is going to last me a long time because I trust the brand. They make good computers. If there's a difficuly it's working with Windows 8 after using Vista for so long. I had to make adjustments so I feel comfortable with the computer. That took me two weeks. Afterward there's no problems. More space, faster speed, and top notch performatnce. There's nothing like it.

Well, for the money its great with some set backs out side of windows 8 being a pain. The lap top seems to be a little slow for quad processor and 6 gigs of ram. My desk top with windows xp pro duel core is almost as fast..so a little disppointed there. And when you change screens the size's of the fonts and picture change...major issues there.

For the money the laptop is very good the few drawback I have is I can't see when the drive is running. A blinking light or a wheel icon would have been great. I do see a circular moving icon but mouse has to be in a certain position for it to come up. It doesn't seem as fast as my last laptop, running through programs but maybe that just me. I would have thought a newer system would have been noticeably faster. Overall I like the quality and the huge screen and lots of memory for the price is great...

It is a pretty decent lap op over all. Had a few issues with the boot up cycle that have seemed to work themselves out The longest I have had it booted up is one week with no issues and I will leave it booted up until Winblows Updates tell me I have to reboot the machine or one of my major programs requires a total reboot. I plan on installing the max 16gb ram in the future.

Good Budget Laptop

POSTED BY: Dragonwind , Klamath Falls, Or
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

Other than the f keys being tied into functions such as brightness etc and requiring the use of the FN key to access them for anything else [example: F-keys that are required for MMO's] (should be the other way around in my opinion, the special laptop functions currently tied into the f-keys should only be accessible by depressing the FN key) this laptop is pretty decent for a budget laptop. The 17" screen is a big plus and was the sole reason I purchased this product over slightly faster/stronger laptops from another manufacturer (all of whom had smaller screens). Overall I am satisfied with this laptop.

NOT my first Toshiba Laptop

POSTED BY: Dalmax , Freeport, Maine
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

This is my third Toshiba. I bought this because my last one I SO wore out in four years that the screen hinges were not conducting enough for me to see. It was hook up one of my monitor or upgrade. It is a sturdy feeling machine; I feel good about normal handling of it. Getting used to Windows 8 is a nuisance for someone (like me; but that isn't Toshiba's fault# who needed to plug in and get to work There are so many nuances to the new operating system that I spent the first month cursing and resurrecting my work. It's getting better. Overall, aside from the annoyances of dealing with touchy pads, new operating system, and having to transfer thousands of files, I do like it. The keyboard feels more substantial and I suspect that once *I* get use to everything I will be #much?) more satisfied.

While lap tops have been out for a while this is the first one I purchased. I have always use towers. I like that you can take this anywhere. The screen is easy to read. I still have to play with it to get it the way I want. Now what I hate about it. I installed a anti virus and it seems like it slows down while loading programs more then it should. I also hate the 8.1 program. It seems for some reason it doesn't work well with my home page of AT&T with yahoo. I do use this every day tho.

This is a typical laptop. The keyboard letters could be more distinct. The performance is really slow - not at all what promised. Really disappointed in that feature. Do not like the DELETE button so small and hidden at the top of the keyboard. The DELETE button in the key pad is a pain because to use it you have to turn off the NUM LOCK.

This new Toshiba is very similar to the Toshiba that died on me about six weeks ago. It was 3 years old and simply would not turn on anymore. One thing - the other laptop's keyboard was far superior to this new one. I have never had so much trouble typing. It constantly misses letters and I am not a light fingered person. What the heck did you do? The kybd even feels cheap.

Still trying to decipher Windows 8.1. It's trying to be too many things to too many people. The keyboard, compared to my old HP seems to require a certain toch to make it register.I'm constantly having to go back and fill in missing characters and spaces. And the spacebar has all but disappeared. The 1.5 is kind of slow, also.

Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

For the price, I could not pass up a laptop with the features and screen size the L75D provided. However, my DVD does not work and is not recognized by Windows 8, although it is listed in the BIOS. After several changes to my registry edits, it has become apparent that it is simply a bad drive. This is my first round of Windows 8 and I absolutely hate it. I also do not like the fact that simple word processing software and other necessary software is no longer included. Another annoying problem is that the original windows boot disk is not included. Need to find a Toshiba repair center to fix my dvd drive, I guess.

What seperates this laptop from being an excellent laptop to being an expensive door stop is Windows 8.1. There are no excuses for putting a horrible operating system on a beautiful machine. I have windows Vista on a Toshiba that I bought in 2007 and it works fine, at least better than this one.

Windows 8.1 is difficult to use. Toshiba doesn't want to link to my printer/scanner often. Takes far too long to update anything. Other than being bigger, I should just have stuck with my old Acer which served me well for over 3 years. Toshiba, after a month, is more of a waste of money than a useful tool. I'm very disappointed with this purchase and would NEVER recommend it to anyone. Downloads are slow. Keyboard is terrible!!!

Touchpad and left and right buttons need to be pounded to operated, no control for adjusting sensitivity. You must purchase external touchpad or mouse to use. Pointer hangs up after three or four clicks and locks for a few seconds. Battery life is a fraction of what is advertised. General performance is slow and unresponsive. A total disappointment in a Toshiba product. Taken it back to retailer twice and they pretty much said it is what it is. Have two other laptops and a desktop at home/office that run circles around this one.
