Toshiba Satellite L555-S7916

 

If you're looking for an inexpensive laptop with a large screen to park in the kitchen or use as a home-office PC, Toshiba's Satellite L555-S7916 is worth a look. The expansive keyboard, which includes a dedicated numeric keypad, raises the comfort...

Very Inexpensive ; A 17.3-inch screen

Mediocre A/V experience ; Astoundingly slow Wi-Fi performance

This Toshiba might make a good kitchen PC, but beware of poor Wi-Fi support and the inferior display image.

Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7930 17.3-inch Notebook

 

Toshiba's Satellite L555D-S7930 may not be the fastest notebook out there, but it looks to give a nice host of features for the price.

At the end of the day, what we have with the Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7930 isn't a multimedia machine. It is not a high-powered workstation and it's not a gaming rig. What the Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7930 is, is a cheap and moderately capable general...

Toshiba Satellite L555 review

 

Laptops are going two ways. Super-small or super-size. And there's absolutely no doubt into which category the Toshiba Satellite L555 falls into. With a monster 17.3-inch screen, it's desperate for you to move on your desktop and stick it in its place....

Hi-res screen, great keyboard

Bulky, glossy finish, speakers are poor

A decent desktop replacement, but some niggles leave it short of its rivals

Decent Laptop

 

Overall this is a decent computer for those wanting to check e-mail and surf the web.

It has a wide screen which is good and 10 key pad which I love

Battery life is terrible. GTouch pad is in a very bad place. Speakers could be a lot of better

Consumer review by:

Totally worthless piece of junk. Crashed after 1 yr.

 

I hate this piece of crap... I will never buy another Toshiba Satellite again. The last one I had was a Satellite P205D-S7454. It died after one year, due to a product-wide problem in the BIOS causing the computer to "think" it was overheating & shut...

I honestly can't think of any

Everything... from it crashing after only 1 year, to the horrible smudge/fingerprint magnet that it is, to the dead pixels after 1 month of use, to the awkward position of the mouse pad causing the mouse to jump to another program while you're typing

Consumer review by:

Great laptop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

despite the few flaws it has, this is overall a great laptop. I'm glad I purchased it and would recommend it to anyone

Large 17.3" screen is great. The glossy black finish looks good. Super fast

The speakers leave a lot to be desired. The touch pad is in an awkward place, if you are not carefull you will bump it and the cursor will end up in another location
