Review Toshiba Satellite C55-A-1D5 Notebook

 

Short-winded. There are many affordable multimedia laptops that even manage up-to-date games in medium to high settings for around 600 Euros (~$813). Toshiba's Satellite C55-A-1D5 is no exception. However, it exhibits shortcomings in ergonomics, build...

Suitable for games in medium to high settings; Sufficient power for demanding software; Rich-in-color screen

Might be too slow for future games in the midterm; Inferior keyboard; Short battery runtime; Full-plastic casing

It's amazing how wide the horizontal viewing angle stability in a laptop with a TN screen from this price range can be.

Toshiba Satellite C55-A-1N0 review

 

This is one of the most powerful desktop replacements you'll find for less than £500

This shouldn’t be a problem if you’re planning to use the C55-A-1N0 as a desktop replacement, though, and it certainly doesn’t detract from what’s otherwise a great value laptop. It’s rare to find such a powerful system for less than £500 and it shows...

Toshiba Satellite C55-A-12U

 

A £500 laptop with a fast processor, 8GB RAM and a 1TB hard drive. Great deal?

Excellent value ; Strong performance ; Good keyboard

Very poor battery life ; Low quality, non touch screen ; Plasticky look and feel

It's a totally average, yet adequate screen, which is about as much as one can expect at this price.

Unexpeted Poor Performance

 

Mostly I want to comment on the speed of this machine. I am unable to start an RDP connection in a reasonable amount of time while running literally anything else. I am not commenting on the speed of the RDP connection once established, just the setup....

Plenty of USB ports ; Full number pad

Slow ; Missed keystrokes ; Glossy screen

Use a mouse for this product instead of the pad. A mouse is thousands of times more responsive. Cd drive works decently. Just a suggestion download movies and apps. Such as netflix, hulu, crackle, iTunes, EA origin, Steam, and microsofts version of the...

Good for Microsoft office, and indie gaming. Plays counter strike global offensive at 80+ fps, minecraft 60+ fps. If your streaming on it get something more powerful. Good for presentation designing and much more. This is a good laptop to start out...

Mouse pad feels like it's going to fall off. Mousepad button once did. CD drive feels a bit low build quality. CPU cooler and the power supply scream. The laptop can get loud for 60% of the time

Cheap but still upgradable!

 

My boy wanted to buy the HP Stream 13 for school work. I know the Stream is not upgradable at all. So we bought this. Upgraded the ram to 8 gb ddr3 1600 and threw in a 50 dollar 120 gb ssd. We loaded windows 7 on it and it is a beast. Thank you Toshiba

Slow Celeron and 2 gb ram but it is upgradable

Not very happy

 

Should have spent a little more money on a faster laptop with more RAM

Good price, installation was very easy

DVD Drive doesn't read DVDs, only data CDs. The laptop is slow to do pretty much anything. I was hoping it would at least surf the net fast, but it's just plain slow

Great Case

 

none. Cheap if you want slow performance

Warranty. My lcd screen developed dead pixels after 2 months.. After taking pics and sending them to toshiba support. They contacted me and said the limited warranty doesnt cover this repair. What a scam
