    Great laptop for a great price!, September 3, 2013

    This review is from: Toshiba Satellite C55-A5285 Intel® CoreTM i3-3120M Processor (3rd Generation) , 6GB DDR3, 750G HD, HD TruBrite® LED Backlit display Supports 720p, 1-USB (3.0) port and HD webCam and Mic. (Personal Computers)

    Do not be fooled by the negative reviews. This is a really good laptop for the price. As others have said, it’s enough performance for normal tasks. I use mine for IT utilities, but also at home for normal activities as well as hooking HDMI to TV to watch movies on the web. Very nice.

    In response to the naggers:

    Speakers:
    Actually I do agree that the speakers do not have great sound. It is clean, but you get high end frequency response (lots of treble). Still, for a laptop, I don’t care what the quality sounds like. External jack or HDMI fills in for higher quality sound for my music or movies.

    **EDIT: To help the sound, disable the DTS Sound app, and set the audio hardware to at least 96000 Hz, it increases the volume a lot. The speakers are still poor, but the external jack sounds much better. HDMI is completely separate and sounds good all around.

    Windows 8 Guide:
    Seriously? You’re going to knock down a product cause it doesn’t come with a Windows 8 guide? Try going to Microsoft’s website or YouTube and you’ll find a tremendous amount of how-to’s and videos to get you started.

    “Pad is very sensitive to touch”:
    Not true. I was actually very impressed by the feel and response of the touch pad. The cursor responds very smoothly to the movement of your fingers and never seems to jump too far as other laptops.

    The other naggers seem to show that they are unhappy people no matter what, so it’s not worth commenting. So, with the exception of the built-in speakers lacking nice flat sound, this is a great laptop and worth the price.

    Great Basic Laptop Core i3, August 26, 2013

    I just got this to replace an older Dell laptop (8 years) which served me very well. The new Toshiba is an excellent budget priced Laptop with the basic features most people need. I am an IT professional with over 25 years experience and this is a fine soluiton for a home user. It is not a gaming laptop, heavy graphics design, etc, but for browsing, web design, basic graphics design (I use Xara Pro X), and Windows 8 it is working very well. As I am restoring files from my old system I will update this post as time goes by. So far setup has been very straight forward. Files are restoring now, all looks good. Speed is excellent, the Core i3 is performing a little better than I expected. While I love the higher end Laptops ($1200+) for what I need for travel, this does extremely well.
