Product Reviews
Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by been reliable so far i have only had my laptop for a month so its not enough time to know for sure how its holding up. i use it daily for multiple things, but to me a good review can't be said until you have had it for 6 months. September 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Out standing Very easy toset up use as a home use. Very good for home July 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by This laptop does what it is supposed to. My five and a half year-old Toshiba Tecra laptop has been reliable but is starting to slow down, so I decided to buy another for use in my business. I was not happy that it came with Windows 7 pre-installed, requiring installation of Windows 10 after it was set up, and this took several hours to install and update. It has also taken many hours to install the latest versions of the software I use and transfer files. In the process I encountered two BSODs. However, in comparison to the previous Tecra, this laptop is lighter, thinner, has better screen resolution, usually boots and shuts down faster, and loads programs faster. I use it at work with an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse, which were easy to set up. If it proves as reliable as its predecessor, I expect to use it for many years. July 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent excellentb great support and I love the computer..the toshiba support is excellent............ June 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good all around Win 7 laptop Given the slippery Windows landscape, this laptop provides a solid choice for working with the current Win 7 environment that is still prevalent in many businesses, while providing enough growth room for future use as Win 10/+ starts to filter in. Supplies the expected features and functionality requisite for today's common business computing tasks. May 18, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Will not purchase at CDW as my first option. I've been using a Toshiba Satellite the past three years and have been happy with it. Decided to get this Tecra (assuming they stopped making Satellite since it's not on Toshiba's site anymore). I knew it had less specs, I was fine with it. It arrived with Win 7 Pro. I thought it would have Win 10 pre-installed. It took a lot of time to investigate and eventually put Win 10 on it. Very inconvenient experience. May 12, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Laptop disappointment I ordered this model because it has a backlit keyboard. That is a good feature. Also the letters and numerals on the k/b are large and visible. The k/b has a good "feel." It came with Windows 7 loaded and disks for Win 10 which I loaded after backing up Win 7. You have to go into the BIOS and change a setting to make Win. 10 work. It took about 6-7 hours to complete the Win 10 installation and the l/t shut down about 30 times while installing all the drivers and programs . I called Toshiba support and they were no help. Just said the l/t was bad and to return it. I finally got it running.Avoid Windows10. It is not intuitive and has useless features. You can't drag web addresses and save then on the desktop any more, although this in not a fault with the Toshiba l/t. Time consumming to find settings and overall extremely annoying. One annoying feature is that NUM LOCK has to be turned on each time you reboot. This is likely related to Win 10.After using the l/t about 2 weeks, for some reason it failed to take a charge when plugged in. The battery was down to 8%. After searching on line, I found a troubleshooting procedure which somehow reset the l/t so it would take a charge and is now fully charged. This is not an encouraging start. Obviously you want to plug it in and expect it to charge.I have a Toshiba at work and it functions pretty well except when typing on the L/t keyboard. I bought a Toshiba for my personal use because of the utility of my work l/t, which I use with a wireless k/b and mouse. However this model is not as ruggedly built as the work laptop and I'm disappointed. It is a costly machine, mostly because of the backlit feature I suspect.Would not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by When it comes to Laptops it just doesn't get better than Toshiba. I only buy Toshiba laptops b/c they never break, have excellent features, design and ease of use. For the value, quality and reliability you can't do better for your money than buying a Toshiba laptop. May 3, 2016
