I love my Laptop
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I am a new college student, and promised myself that I would buy a laptop this semester, after checking many brands, and comparing prices this one was for me. I'm still learning all of it's features, but so far it continues to amaze me!

to much useless things on it
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I do not like that I have to log in with a pass word every time I put it in sleep mode or start up.. if you do not use a mouse and go to the right side of the screen you drag over the useless things on the right.. When I log on I wont regular page not all those apps... I had to reset so that they do not show.. The worst is the log in every time....

Decent laptop for my use
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Bought this laptop to get an upgraded experience but haven't used it enough to put out much of a "rating" though. A month in and so far it has been a nice change from what I had before. Quick start up and the battery lasts longer...just what you'd expect with a new computer. Haven't used many of the bells and whistles like playing a CD or DVD or uploading/burning anything yet. I bought it on clearance and mostly just surf so no complaints here. If there was a complaint, it would be that Windows 8 has been hard to get used to. It is what it is.

Worst laptop ever
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

As soon as I purchased the laptop I started having trouble setting it up and installing my programs. Worst of all, it kept locking up on me. Freezing up! I took it back after 4 days to the store where I exchanged it for a better model in another brand(LENOVO) . It was $200.00 more but it's true---you get what you pay for. I am glad I returned it!

3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I hardly ever bother to write a negative review about anything, but I am not very happy with this computer. I've used computers for many years, mostly for photography, but this is my first laptop. Much of the problem may just be Windows 8 but the computer is SO slow I can hardly stand it! Probably my fault in that I should have bought a better one, but this sounded adequate for what I needed.

4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

It took me a while to learn the ins and outs. I would have preferred a guide book instead of the users manual within the computer itself. It would have ben easier for me to read as I explored various options. It probably is easier for the younger generation; however for a novice like myself it took time. This really is a good buy for the money

Love The Laptop
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The computer is great but I hated the Windows 8 at first but now I am used to it. I like having 3 USB ports but the only thing I don't like are the numbers on the right side. I don't use them and would prefer they not be there making it a smaller size. Couldn't find one without the numbers.

3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Really like this laptop...too bad it had to be equipped with Windows 8! My wife has a Toshiba laptop & hers is much easier to get around on, but she has Windows 7. We were told when we bought this that Microsoft was coming out with a "fix" for W-8! Hope this is true & hope they will advertise that it is available.

Satelitte
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Fair computer gotten at a really good price 299.00. What deters from better ratings is WINDOWS 8. It is horrible. It is an imposter to force purchase of microsoft tablets and soooooo very annoying on the laptop format. It unnecessarily forces the proficient into the learner with no real benefits. I loath Microsoft's market manipulations and sadly Toshiba's compliance.

Just OK
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Overall the laptop is fine. Once I figured out Windows8 life was good. I was disappointed when I had to return it for repair after having it for less than 2 weeks. However, my repair experience was very positive. Have been using my laptop daily and no technical problems. One annoying problem. The keyboard is not as responsive as previous laptops or traditional pc's. Also, my printer an HP Deskjet 1055 All-in-one J410 series is not compatible with this laptop and I have been postponing purchasing a new printer for budget reasons.

My First Laptop
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I dabbled with a laptop computer approximately 25 years ago and it was bulky and a royal pain. This laptop I have now is better than buttered bread. It simplifies my life in so many ways. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good laptop.

Jury is still out
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I require a laptop for business and business travel. I will not need or keep it once retired. My computer time is 90% business related and 10% social. The Toshiba laptop is my first Toshiba product after years with Dells and H-Ps. The basic computer functions are completely satisfactory. The Windows 8 is a nightmare to use and totally not user friendly. I am in the process of getting the computer downgraded to Windows 7.

not very happy
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This machine is extremely slow. I have to download the shockwave player several times a week, because I keep getting the message that it has stopped working, Several of the games I like to play require the player, and I have just given up playing them. I need a machine that will do more than just let me read my email. There is no word processing program without my paying an exorbitant price for Microsoft Office. Too bad I didn't read the reviews before I bought. Also, Windows 8 is all hype-would rather have Windows 7 back.

Read reviews
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I have always purchased Dell computers because they have satisfied my needs. The last one I bought was a Vostro and it lasted 2 yrs...no more than what I use them for I was very disappointed. Even so I called Dell and was going to purchase another product. The rep asked me what I had, upon telling her she stated well no wonder that is the worst model you can buy. Anyone that would trash their own product isn't respectful of their company. Having said that she could have responded w a I have a much better one available. Back to TOSHIBA I looked @ all computer reviews on line and this company had some issues but overall reviews were best. Went to local Office Depot bought- had computer that day no waiting or shipping charges and was on sale. I pd 1/3 of what I pd for my last Dell. I am extremely happy w the performance look and ability of this PC. Only dislike would have preferred Windows 7....Thank you TOSHIBA!

Fabulous laptop
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I just have to say, this is the best laptop I have ever had, so far. First of all, the design of this product is very sleek. It has very nice features. It is so easy to run. It also starts up very fast. You do not have to wait an hour, like some others to start up. This laptop is a joy to use. I love it. Thank you so much for making such a great product.

5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I have just bought this laptop about a week ago. As a matter of fact this is the first computer that I have bought in my life, for I have built every computer that I have ever owned since I was 12 years of age. I'm a gamer and I cannot complain one bit when it comes to the performance of this machine. I love this machine and use it every day. It has a good battery life and can handle what I've thrown at it thus far (which is a lot.) The only thing that I can't say I'm too partial to is windows 8, but that is no fault of Toshiba, but Microsoft.

4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I am a school teacher and appreciate a value priced product. I don't "live" on my computer and mainly use it to create documents, slideshows and the occasional movie in class. It took some getting used to "tile-land" or windows 8, but after you learn where everything is, it's just like old times. good value, I don't play games or store movies on my computer so It was a good choice for me.

difficulties
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

It seems the frame of the laptop twists, bends and gives too easily and it has to be on a solid surface to use. This structure problem is compounded by the difficulty using the mouse as it seems to execute on it's own making deletions and file moves with out the proper selection sequence - I think this is a problem of using the window 8 on a non-touch screen laptop.

Great computer for the money
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This computer is great for what I use it for. I do not like Windows 8, so I downloaded the classic start from windows 7. The mouse seems a little touchy and will open stuff on it's on sometimes which gets annoying. I set the mouse to be slower, couldn't find a sensitivity setting, has helped some, but still does it occasionally. But great other than that. I mainly use my computer for the internet, paying bills, etc. and facebook.

5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I researched laptops before buying the Toshiba because my expensive laptop didn't live past a year and a half, So far the Toshiba has surpassed my expectations...the start up is fast, the battery life is exceptional and it's easy to navigate. The keyboard and mousepad are comfortable to my hands and the large screen makes everything clear. If the durability pans out, I will be a Toshiba customer for a long time to come.

Great Laptop - Hate Windows 8
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I have a Toshiba that's about 5 years old and I love it...never a problem. When it came time to buy a second one, I looked at other brands but the price and reliability of the Toshiba made it a no-brainer. I can't tell you how much I hate Windows 8 though. Haven't found anything about 8 that I do like. That's not Toshiba's problem though. Only thing I thought they should have loaded on the machine was Skype; since it came with a web cam. Otherwise...all good.

Need more time to evaluate well
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Overall, it seems to meet my needs. I expected the processing time to be quicker, but it hasn't reached the passing lane yet. Only noticeable problem I have had is that a couple to times it put itself to sleep in spite of the fact that I had it set to stay on much longer. Not sure if there is a problem or not at this time. I have to use it longer in order to give it a fair assessment.

Right out of the box, the Toshiba laptop worked perfectly. I have had Toshiba laptops in the past and a Toshiba desktop, but tried a different laptop and had nothing but trouble. I am so happy to be back with a Toshiba laptop. As I became more proficient with Windows 8, I ordered a RAM upgrade. When I am ready to replace my primary machine, I will definitely replace it with a Toshiba.

My opinion has mixed feelings. When I first purchase my computer. i never had a computer that didn't have a start menu. It was so hard for me to sleep or shut down my computer. I never had a computer that didn't have a mouse .However, I do like all the apps that were all ready added.to my computer.I would highly suggest to my family and friends to purchase a Toshiba computer.

Slow to perform
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

While this computer fit the immediate need to have an inexpensive laptop available in our home, it is slow to perform. Many times the Internet needs to restart in order to access a web address. Could be a Windows 8 issue?? Most times have to use old "desktop" mode versus what the laptop was intended for.

My New Toy
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I bought this laptop at a ridiculously low price only because I do computer tutoring and ran into my first Windows 8 client, and was embarrassingly clueless. Figured I had to learn the new OS, so got this Toshiba laptop to do just that. I. Find I love it and am turning to it more and more for other than learning. Good size, good features. The only thing I don't like is that I have to sign in each time I start up.

After testing for a month. The laptop help its own. At first I was a bit skeptical about the OS but with time perhaps we may work together. Most of the generic software were installed..would have loved to have a more permanent Office program, but what can one say...the price was a give away..

The Toshiba laptop is okay... but I am disappointed in the program it came with Window's 8. It is a nightmare!! I could do no good with the computer and almost took it back until someone told me to load Google Crome, which made it much better to navigate in. I am not happy that with any little movement, the dang thing magnifies and I am constantly having to bring it back to normal. I love Toshiba's and the computer itself is okay.. the junk they put on it is a nightmare.

too difficult to use
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I think that it is just too difficult to use, I have a hard time finding things that should be simple to find such as word pad and things such as picture cropping and printing etc. and every time i use the pad the toolbar pops up? what is that, it is so annoying and i do not know how to fix it, i would rather be able to just click on the start menu and go to whatever i would like to use as far as programs and this difficulty in use makes it very hard for me to be able to do anything on this computer for my business or just to print or type a document- as soon as possible i will be getting rid of this computer and going with something else....anything else actually. I really do not like this windows 8 at all- basically overall this computer is just not what i expected from toshiba and i really wish i had gone a different way.

~ Best Labtop for the Price!!! ~
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

A little slow at first but once I updated the ram for the laptop to 16 Gigs I did not have any problems with it.

Love the laptop
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This is my second Toshiba laptop. The first one was going strong but I gave it to my son for gaming use. I fully expect this laptop to last as long as the last one. The only thing I hate is Windows 8 but I love the laptop.

Too slow on boot up
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Computer takes 6 to 8 minutes on "cold start" boot; about 5-6 minutes out of hibernate. I have had a number of guru's, including Toshiba tech support try to speed it upo but to little avail. I am resigned to living with it since I have all my files and software on it now, but I'm not a happy camper because of this.

Lemon Out of the Box
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Bought the laptop at a great price, guess you get what you pay for. All i wanted it for was scoring at a local club that i am a part of. 1 program installed and that was all i had on it with a few pictures. After 1 week the touch pad started to fail, had to use an external mouse to get the cursor to move and it would hang as well. Took it back to Office depot and the exchanged it after looking and having the same issues. We will see with this latest one. WINDOWS 8 is HORRIBLE!! If you have the opportunity avoid it!

My first laptop ever
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I like the laptop but I would like it better if the keyboard was not flat, I use regular keyboard and wireless mouse. I think it would be a great addition if you could figure out a way to put a "pop out" handle in the case to make carrying it around easier!!

So Far So Good

good value for the money
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

It has the bear essentials but is fast and easy to use. The one major drawback that I have found so far is that the sound quality is thin and unrealistic.

laptop
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I like the large keys for my use and the features are easy to use, however, as i put the laptop on my desk, it slipped and dropped on it from a short distance and now makes a slight buzzing sound. It seems it is not as well built as i thought.

OS dramatically affects impressions of hardware
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The hardware is so affected by the O'S and the software that its impossible to give a fair review of the hardware. The latest version of Windows is not jiving for me at all, doesn't work with my QuickBooks, and forces me to use products (ie Hotmail) that I don't want to use.

Interesting Features
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I am still trying to figure out some of the places on the laptop. I find that the graphics are excellent. The touch is so sensitive for the mouse. I'm trying to get use to that.

Active keys too small
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

It may not be entirely your fault but also the fault of moving into Windows 8, from Windows XP. This was very difficult transition, I needed Window 8 and Word 2013 for my job, but the lack of immediate documentations on the laptop and the Word made it worse. Too many quarks and the active key (left click is too small.

My first laptop purchase
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I have only begun to explore what my laptop can do for me and I am looking forward to using it to it's capacity in the near future with my new business venture. My only negative comments are how touchy it is! It takes nothing at all to cross from one screen to another then I have to switch back again. it happens all the time and it's annoying. Also, Windows Defender has gotten turned off somehow and I haven't been able to turn it back on or found a way to communicate to Toshiba via live chat to determine what the problem is. I am pretty savvy and I just cannot figure it out and the searches do not help me. I love how light is is compared to my work laptop!

Can't figure out how to work it.
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I cannot figure out how to get to documents, There are three or four steps to log off and shut down. It is hard to find how to get to the computer so that you can open a memory stick. Every thing is so cryptic, so hidden, that it is easier to go to my desk top. Need to get rid of windows eight or whatever that is.
