This is an excellent computer. It took me a couple of days to get used to Windows 8, but I can easily get where I want to be now! We bought (3) 855L computers!

Great Laptop, windows 8 is easy to use. Had no few problems loading programs such as Office home and student 2013. Removed Norton antivirus and installed MacAfee from AOL. Wife uses it for homework, really likes it.

Hate Windows 8

POSTED BY: USNA`63 , Crowley, TX
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

Not only is Windows 8 visually unattractive and unprofessional looking, in my opinion, it adds an element of uncertainty in learning the Operating System. I am attempting to work my way through the Windows 8 Tutorial and have downloaded "Windows 8 For Dummies". I would be much happier with my new laptop, which replaced an older "Quosmio" model, if I had Windows 7 or even Windows 7

Great laptop

Very pleased with this purchase! This one replaces an older Toshiba Laptop. There was nothing wrong with older Laptop. Still works great, was just about 6 years old and wanted to upgrade. The display and keyboard are fantastic. This is a great laptop,features and price helped make my mind up to purchase this model. Very easy to set up and use. Very pleased.

An awfully good value for the money

For the money, you'll be hard pressed to find a sweeter combination of processing power, memory, and storage. With the possible exception of the function key setup (where the "feature" is enabled primarily, requiring you to hit the Fn button to active a regular F5/F11/etc), I can't think of a thing I'd change. This laptop is replacing a decade old workhorse, and so far I have no regrets at all over the purchase.

I love this computer .It is ever my # 1 choice.

I've had this laptop for about two months now. I had another Toshiba that was about 10 years old, it was just time for a new one. I didn't want to spend a lot , but wanted a quality product, and this one is great for the value!!! I use it for searching the web , and paying bills , and you tube, kind of basic usage. The battery holds up good. The only thing I have to get used to is windows 8 features. So far, so good!!!

Perfect for me

POSTED BY: Mike , Hartsele, Alabama
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

The price was the main reason I bought it, but I like the easy usability of it. I was a little leary of Windows 8 when I bought it, but the more I use it, the better I'm getting at it. It has a perfect sized screen, and nice sized keys. The only downside is that I have to strike the keys right on the middle or it doesn't read it. That makes for a lot of error corrections.

Most Effecient/Powerful Laptop

POSTED BY: Quanador , Chico, Ca
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

Overall I highly recommend this laptop. The cooling system is efficient and keeps the laptop from overheating. The keyboard buttons are easy to press and read even in low light. The placement of the accessory plugins is very nice since you have them in easily accessable areas. The only wish I have is that the mouse be moved 2 inches to the right so that when playing a game or typing my left hand thumb does not hit the mouse while I am typing.

Great Price/Performance Ratio.

This computer has been running steady for a month. Aside from adapting to Windows 8 the computer has impressed me. I needed a casual laptop for the summer and this fits the bill. Con: Plastic on bottom of case seems flimsy to me.

I have had this computer for 3 months. I still use my old one more often because I cannot move around in Windows 8. It is like learning some new language. I have bought books and did classes on utube. What time I have used it the computer seems to do well. Maybe one day I'll use it more.

Laptop is for novice and intermediate users. On the go and home, school, use. Probably office but not sure yet. Is light in built but I think I will last for at least 5 years, hopefully more. Quality brand name components. Components are matched to work together. Warranty is OK.

The overall function is fine and the computer works well but there are some shortcomings, the keyboard needs to be hammered on for it to work with any kind of accuracy, I am an excellent typist and letters just don't appear without what I believe to be at least twice the pressure than any other keyboard I use. The screen is very sharp at first but after a short time seems to dull around the edges.

Great overall performance - was very happy with the laptop except the tracking pad had a mind of its own. Returned to dealer 2 times to see if they could fine tune it but the pad just would not work properly.

Did not realize when I bought this laptop that Windows 8 would be so different than previous versions. This has made life miserable as I don't know how to access anything. I am slowly getting used to it, but do not think it is easier or user friendly

Never owned a laptop before

POSTED BY: Beckster , West Salem, WI
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

I still love my desk top computer a lot more. It is more comfortable, easier to work with, and isn't extremely sensitive. I do not like that if I have my fingers lightly resting on the mouse pad, all of a sudden the computer takes me to different screens, and sites. And I barely even touched it. I also would like it better if it came with an instruction manual. I don't like having to search all over the internet to find directions on how to use it. I do like that I can take it anywhere in the house. And I do like the speed and memory capacity of it compared to our 6 year old plus computer. It's a Dell desk top.

Hate System 8 & Having Moue Pad Issues

POSTED BY: Jim , Naperville, IL
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

Coming from MS XP Professional, System 8 is not the way I work and obviously designed for a touch sensitive screen which my lap top does not have nor did I want it. I also am a Mac user and the user interface is a far cry from Lion. I continue to have issues with the mouse pad which will freeze randomly.....had the system accessed remotely by Geek Squad tech support and they cleaned a few things up but did not find anything specific. It is perturbing to loose control of the mouse pad in the middle of work. It appears as though something is running in the background consuming the CPU.......processes and applications running were reviewed with nothing identified. Tech support completed the analysis and I said I'd keep an eye on it. If this continues, I have a serious issue with the system. It appears to be continuing. Any help appreciated.

I have had the laptop about a month now and the touchpad stopped working. It also will not turn on sometimes and I have to remove the battery and then restart. It was inexpensive and has a big screen, but I wish I would have went with an HP or Lenovo.

I have used Toshiba computers since the late 80's and this is my first disappointment. I had trouble right out of the box and it just got worse. I hope it was a fluke because I really like the brand. This is my fifth toshiba laptop and the first one to give me any problems before it was at least 4 years old. I no longer have the laptop. I returned it and will just have to get by till I feel I can get one without all the bugs.

Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

It is really a good brand and a good product. I must say eventhough Toshiba has great laptops, that last and work just fine, there are other brands in the market making the same quality laptops with lower prices, like Samsung. When I bought this laptop I was torn between this one and a Samsung one. Both laptops had almost the same features and memory capacity..Still I chose Toshiba, because I trust you guys.... But I'm noticing many other people in my region buying Samsung, and the thing is they actually perform the same way as a Toshiba or sometimes even better, so I guess my main advice is that, you should reduce a little your price, or make the price worth for the product . Thanks, and I hope you read this! :)

I got this new laptop with windows8. I tried to connect to the internet. The help menu was of no use because it had to have an internet connection to help me. A catch 22 situation. Next thing was since I couldn't get any help from the help menu, I could not propely turn the computer off. Another catch 22 situation. When I finally did get on line 3 days later the help menu sent me to youtube and to a topic I wasn't looking for. Why do these computers have such a large hard drive if the help section is online? Wouldn't it make sense to install that information there where a new user to their product has instant access to it. I am filling out this review from my old window 7 computer since I really hate the windows 8 operating system on the new one. This is the 6th operating system I am having to learn starting with DOS 3.1. If I buy a new car I don't have to learn to drive all over again! It seems they are trying to make computers run like the latest phone on the market.

2008 not compatible to 2007 software

POSTED BY: Special Needs OnLine Learning Coach , Hermiston OR
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

This windows 2008 computer is not user friendly with the 2007 home school online system. I was assured at time of purchase it would work together. But it cause freeze ups, lost work, some programs will not run at all so our old 2007 vaio has to be used like musical chairs between the special needs children I am working with. This creates a extra hard ship. As I purchased these so each child would have a computer. I heard on the radio that 2008 windows was a flop. I am living this problematic system everyday. Had I known, I would have never bought new laptops for the children.
