Laptop Review
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This is a good laptop, but I think the price could have been lower since Windows8 is now coming on the scene. I would have felt more comfortable with a hardcopy manual/directions to help me learn what is available versus hit-and-miss via random usage of the computer. Overall the performance is very satisfying. The ease of use is much improved over previous Windows type computers I have used in the past. Impressive!

Great first laptop

I researched a lot before I bought this laptop. Price and power was the two items that I was looking for in a laptop. I run CAD software and this products performs great.

L855-S5240
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This computer is a great deal if you care about price-valued, in fact the windows expirience index is 5.6. Runs programs without problems and I think is perfect if want something in the middle between a professional computer and a netbook. About gaming this computer runs very well games but do not expect a great visual performance.

good mid-range laptop
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

purchased this laptop after my A305 was stolen. this is a smaller and lighter laptop. While i still prefer the styling of the A305 and its Vista software, this is a nice product for the cost, and will accomplish basic computing.

Decent value for the money
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Overall it seems like a decent laptop. Somewhat disappointed in the seemingly cheap materials used in the construction of this computer. The computer seems to be fragile. The outer shell seems to be made of cheap and fragile plastic. The keyboard is most disappointing....very soft, flexible and "spongy". I owned an original IBM Thinkpad....very solid construction, solid keyboard, etc compared to my new Toshiba. All in all, this is a decent laptop for the money. Boots up very fast. very responsive. I am experiencing continuing and repeated errors in the "error" reporting area. It appears the same errors are showing up all the time. These errors do not seem to be affecting the performance or anything else. They are just annoying. It is probably not Toshiba's fault these errors are showing up in the error report. Probably user caused or some unavoidable glitch in the system somewhere.

Good Laptop for the Price at Office Max
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I would have liked to see this unit with a Blu-ray drive, which I would have gladly payed more for, and a bit longer battery life; however, I am not disappointed in what I received for the price of this unit. This unit also had less bloatware than computers I have purchased in the past, which is a plus.

My 6th Sattelite
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Another excellent laptop. The only problem I have is a lack of flashing lights indicating that something is happening - hence 4 Stars for Features. First we lost a physical volume control, now it is the loss of lights - but I assume that is why I can give it an excellent Price-Value.

Great laptop
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I bought this laptop as a replacement to a Compaq and love it. My old laptop kept overheating and had old software. This purchase was a hit and I am satisfied with the Toshiba product.

One of the Best Laptops Available in the Market
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I bought my Toshiba L855-S5240 from one of the stores 2 weeks back. I was considering other manufacturers as well. However after reviewing the features, price, and comparing it with others I bought this one. Since the past few weeks, the laptop has been my priced possession. Its performance is top class, good silver design, its distinct and good looking, has a great keyboard, sound system (exceptional), opens up quickly, works through multiple tasks like a breeze, has great configuration, and delivers. Graphics are a low Intel HD 3000. Could have been better.But still has all the features that many other same category laptops have. I not v bulky. The long power lead is also pretty handy. An comes with the Toshiba branding. Am very happy with my purchase. Would recommend to one and all. Cheers.
