DVD Issues
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Overall this and my previous Satellite are fantastic laptops. The issue I have with both is the optical drive. It will only recognize the about 50% of the dvd's I try to watch. Audio CD's are no problem. I had to buy an external USB dvd reader just in case the dvd I want to watch can't be read by the on board dvd player.

good customer service
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

My laptop had a problem that was promptly taken care of ...... Repairs were quick & fast turnaround. On the low score side the key board is VERY FLIMSY and takes some getting use to & F keys color code is in reverse.....

Great Laptop
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I got this one after returned the HP with the A10 AMD processor due to some issues. I'm glad I did. I really love this laptop and the Intel i5 chip performs really fast and my videos play without any problems too. I also like the keyboard touch better but do wish it was backlit for use in low light situations. This is my second Toshiba and they perform excellent in my opinion.

Excellent Laptop!
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This is an excellent laptop! It is sturdy, it comes with plenty of memory, and it runs efficiently. The only negative at all is the Windows 8 operating system but hopefully Windows 8.1 will solve most of those issues. By the way, if you use Windows 8 you won't need to buy a third-party virus protection, it's all built in now.

Less than sterling performance
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I bought a Satellite S855-S5369 as an emergency replacement for a 4+ year old Vaio that would not install Turbo-Tax. I was initially impressed with the Satellite's speed, both in loading programs and in booting. After two weeks I began to get low memory warnings (this is allegedly a 6gb memory machine), and then not just warnings, but extremely erratic behavior and unexpected freezing or shutdown. Starting Task Manager and adding up the actual memory being used by each program running, and dividing that by the percentage of memory shown to be in use, showed that only 25% of memory was being accessed. However, after two days of this behavior (during which I was on the road and could not refer to any repair facility), the problem seems to have resolved itself. I have little confidence that it will not return. The keyboard rattles when I type, especially at the right end. This makes me fear that vibration is going to have a deleterious effect on the machine sooner or later. The computer also flexes distressingly when I handle it, such as when picking it up by one end to move it from desk to carrying case. I am not at all pleased with Windows 8. It is a lot harder to navigate in Windows Explorer that Vista was, and some functions available in Vista (such as the ability to move images around in a folder to compose a slide show) cannot be accomplished in W8 - when you try to drag a file to a different place in the folder, it does not budge. The only way to move it is to rename it and let the indexer place it in a new location - VERY cumbersome, not at all convenient. So far I am not impressed by either the hardware nor the software I was forced to move to.

Toshiba Satellite
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I am really enjoying this laptop. I did have a HP that had problems after just a few months. Finally got rid of it after it developed " thermal heat" issues. These started after it went out of warrant by 6 months. Think we will stick with Toshiba. My wife's laptop is a Toshiba and is right at 6 years old and still running well.

I hate Windows 8!
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I gave my new Toshiba Laptop to my grandson who needed it for college. I hate Windows 8! You need to complain to Microsoft and explain to them they are turning those of us with money to spend into "Apple" consumers!!!

Excellent Laptop for the Price
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I love this laptop. Just a couple of things are annoying. The keyboard directional keys and delete key could be better positioned or larger. I use them a lot and often miss the key, hitting one adjacent to it, like the "0" key or the "home" key. Also, I use the scroll bars often. They could be wider and there should be some way to turn off the pesky pop-ups that display when moving the cursor to the edge of the screen.

Some times is not the best
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I do have some issues with the internet "freezing". I am still trying to see if it is my connection or this laptop. Other in the house do not have this problem.

Perfect laptop
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Everything is cool except the short battery life...I liked the design and the performance of the laptop. The one thing that is interesting is that the laptop is light weight somehow,I mean like I had another old Toshiba satellite laptop and it's kind heavy but this one is not. Windows 8 is the most boring feature I discovered but I was happy the moment I found out that I was able to bring the start menu back. The Corei5 processor is fast. The other flow is that the sound quality is not premium and the volume is very low(@100volume I can't hear as I thought I would. Generally the laptop is nice and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in budget laptop with premium features.

Underwhelming
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The keyboard isn't the easiest to use primarily because the keys take a lot of pressure to use. Further this computer has a design flaw seen in many laptops, notably that the keyboard and mouse pad do not consistently function at the same time. Windows 8 does not appear to be of any improvement. Lastly, I was anticipating that it would be a substantial improvement, performance wise, on my previous laptop based off of the specs, in reality it is probably just a little bit slower.

My Old Toshiba Was The Best
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

After 6+ years of rugged use, my Toshiba Sattelite A305 quietly died after putting up quite a struggle. I immediately sought out a new Satellite. I found a good deal at the local office supply store and thought I had dodged a bullet. The old Satellite was my life. I was able to transfer my files and was feeling pretty good about the loss of a trusted friend. Then, reality sunk in. First, the new unit was defective and was replaced. Then, I realized that the operation is different from my old friend. I suppose that I will get used to it. The battery life is better. The ergonomics are a trade off.....I don't like the keyboard......I do like the operating speed.

Good, solid laptop
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I bought an HP and returned it because it was awful. The IT person at the store recommended this Toshiba. It is so much better. It's a little heavy, so I wouldn't recommend it if you need to carry it around a lot, otherwise, it's great - fast, responsive and few glitches.

Good Laptop with excellent performance and rating
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The Toshiba Satellite S855-S5369 Laptop, is one of the best basic computers that I used, some computer characteristics have excellent ratings; the third generation processor Core i5 with the Graphics Intel HD 4000 that results one of the better that I have seen. But the computer could be better with a graphic card like Nvidia GeForce 650M, but with the known characteristics is one of the best.

Worst laptop ever
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The laptop takes about 3 hours to charge and it only last about 2 hours. Everything is bad on this computer. The I core 5 is really slow it takes a long time to write anything.
