Easy to Use

Toshiba laptops come with a range of features and connectivity options that enhance your user experience. Toshiba laptops feature a full range of connectivity options, including an SD card reader, USB 2.0/3.0 ports, and a HDMI slot so you can connect to your HDTV.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 for Fast Connections

Experience the transfer rates of the future with USB 3.0. By connecting to a compatible USB 3.0 device, such as an external drive, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 can offer up to 10 times faster transfer rates than today's Hi-Speed USB 2.0 standard. This means that files and folders that took hours to transfer now just take minutes, and you can move whole albums to and from your laptop in just a few seconds, saving you time and making your media much more portable. Just imagine - now you can move a feature-length movie to a portable drive in just a few minutes, ready to take to a friend's house and watch on the big screen.

Not only is USB 3.0 fast, it's also convenient. You'll still be able to connect and charge all your favourite USB 2.0 devices from your USB 3.0 port, such as your MP3 player or smartphone. With USB 3.0 you get the compatibility you need for today with the speed you'll need for tomorrow.

Wireless Sharing is Easy with Bluetooth 4.0

This makes it ideal for connecting to compatible mobile devices such as smartphones, MP3 players, and more. You can also use Bluetooth to connect to wireless peripherals, such as headsets, speakers, mice and keyboard, making it easier to use your laptop on the move or at home without the clutter of connecting wires.

HDMI for HD Entertainment

Integrated Web Camera

The Satellite C855 features an integrated 1.0 MP web camera with Toshiba Face Recognition. The camera and microphone let you see and hear your contacts online, and can take still pictures, video clips and audio notes. With Toshiba's integrated WebCam communication is made easy--network with friends and family from the comfort of your own home.

Toshiba Face Recognition

Using numerous passwords can complicate things so instead of worrying about remembering all of these or using a single password that can be compromised the Satellite C855 features Toshiba Face Recognition--the fun and easy way to log on to your laptop. Toshiba Face Recognition is a biometric-based identification method and uses the WebCam to automatically detect 14 separate facial feature points to verify your identity and grant you fast and simple access to your data. Once your facial profile has been saved it can be used to access the system. Additional users can store their own unique facial recognition profile, allowing your whole family to use the computer conveniently.

Multi-touch Functionality

The Satellite C855's touchpad features multi-touch gesture support, providing an innovative alternative to conventional scrolling and buttons. The touchpad features an advanced, touch-sensitive interface solution that senses the position of a finger or fingers on its surface and recognises pinching, swiping, and rotating motions performed by simply moving your fingers.

Toshiba Multi-touch Touchpad
Take control with the multi-touch gesture touchpad.

The multi-touch touchpad recognises six different finger gestures, including:

  • Pinch Gesture--two-finger pinch delivers zooming functionality in many Windows applications. The two-finger pinch zoom can be used to zoom in or out of photos, maps, or documents.
  • One or Two Finger Scrolling--scrolling delivers functionality in Windows applications by using one or two separate fingers in a horizontal or vertical motion anywhere on the touchpad, with the scrolling rate controlled by your finger speed.
  • Chiral Scrolling--whenever you wish to scroll just slide two fingers downwards (or upwards) and then you can move your fingers in clockwise or anticlockwise motion to continue scrolling.
  • Momentum Motion--delivers smooth, fast, trackball-like cursor motion. A quick flick of one finger across the touchpad surface can move the cursor across the entire screen and is ideal for use with computer gaming applications.
  • Rotation--rotate photos and other items in 90-degree increments by placing two separated fingers on the touchpad and moving them around in a continuous clockwise or counter-clockwise circular motion.
DVD SuperMulti Drive

View all your movies, use your laptop as a multi-purpose entertainment system and create your own CDs and DVDs with the built-in DVD SuperMulti drive. Not only does it provide great viewing, but the integrated speakers also offer optimum sound quality-perfect for when watching all your favourite movies.

Software Essentials

You’ll get everything you need to get moving straight away. Microsoft Office Starter 2010 is pre-installed whilst the McAfee Internet Security free trial instantly detects and blocks viruses, including stopping web threats before they are downloaded to your PC. Skype is also included for face to face video calls and phone calls to both other Skype users and ordinary phones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent usability, great price 4 July 2012
Size Name:4GB|Verified Purchase
Bought as a home laptop, quality is superb, screen excellent.

Fast speeds- iPlayer, youtube, lovefilm streaming all work in HD and are completely jolt and pause-free.

Keypad is very easy to use and comfortable- number pad at the side very useful.

PC connection to our 37" sony led tv displays in excellent quality and films are ..nearly..as good as dvd- I think an HDMI will be on the cards soon (laptop has this plug too which is handy).

All in all, excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value for money ! 16 Jun 2012
By kdarain
Size Name:4GB
Compared to my previous laptop (another Toshiba from a few years ago), this is one is so much faster and better in so many ways:

I really liked:
The price: sub £400, for a super specification: Intel Core i5 2nd generation (with integrated graphics) with plenty of hard disk space and RAM.
The screen: large 15.6 inch with crisp / bright pictures. HD movies really come alive here (but the picture will get darker if viewing from an angle)
The keyboard: even for a "budget" laptop, this is a full size keyboard with large palm rest. The touch pad also has multi touch gestures that I use often for zooming in/out when browsing online. Overall the quality of the finish of the laptop is much better than I expected.
Comes with Bluetooth (no need to buy those USB bluetooth adapter) to get my pictures transferred from my mobile phone.

I liked:
The initial set-up: simple and reasonably fast.
The warranty from Toshiba: pick-up and return for 12 months.
The enhanced sound software (SRS): no hifi quality but makes a big difference to "standard" sound. I now always keep on.
The free pre-installed software, especially Office Starter (Excel/Word) and Nero.

I did not like:
Toshiba always pre-install several of their own software/drivers that I prefer to turn off / disable to speed up booting time. Some of the software is also only for a trial period (e.g Norton).

Overall, I am very happy with it and would certainly highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value! 24 July 2012
By emd
Size Name:6GB|Verified Purchase
Bought this to replace my old Toshiba which was working at snail pace! Spent weeks reviewing everyone else's reviews about laptops and chose this because it was a familiar make which I am used to and also it's processing speed. It is much lighter than my old model, so doesn't crush your lap! I like the silver lid, but not so keen on the all black keyboard - this is a personal preference though and doesn't impact on the whizzy speed of the machine. I haven't explored all the functions yet on it, as I mainly use it for word-processing and accessing the internet. Speed is great and although it is only a 15.6 inch - the screen looks much bigger and wider. Have found that the speakers are a little bit tinny sounding, but overall a good value machine which I really like and would recommend to anyone. Also the set-up is really easy if you are not techno minded as I am not - there was no problem at all in linking to a wireless network. Great service by Amazon as well, I ordered it on the Saturday afternoon and it was delivered Monday morning!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but with reservations! 2 Aug 2012
Size Name:4GB|Verified Purchase
This is a very good machine with an excellent specification for the price, particularly having the i5 processor. It does everything I need quickly and efficiently.
Very easy to set up and not much in the way of pre-installed "extras" to get rid of. The battery is lasting about 4 hours before a re-charge is necessary. I did install an extra 4Gb of RAM which obviously takes the price to about £418. Mine did have 1 x 4Gb module fitted so it only needed one further 4Gb module in the second of the two slots. Easy to access too through a large removable cover.
Now the reasons for docking a star.
This laptop is not very heavy and I suspect that to achieve a lighter weight the case and screen materials quality/strength have been sacrificed. The hinged top cover and screen is not very rigid at all and very flexible and the main casing feels very thin and flimsy.The lid on mine suffers from a slight warp and doesn't close completely at the front right.
Something I do miss is an indicator l.e.d. to show the hard disc is working. I've never seen a laptop or p.c. where this has been omitted, up until now.
Like others, I do have concerns about the keyboard, it flexes when typing and doesn't seem to be supported very well at all.
I also agree with regards the optical drive tray being very difficult to open, why have Toshiba done that other than to follow the contour of the base, it's silly?
Although I never play music on this or really need the speakers for anything, they are truly awful and must be the worst built in laptop speakers I've ever not heard! Tinny and feeble.
However, in spite of the criticisms, the price for the spec. does have to be taken into consideration and, believe it or not, I really am pleased with the purchase so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best purchase of the year! 15 July 2012
Size Name:4GB|Verified Purchase
I bought this laptop last minute because my three year Acer laptop died and it was high ranking on the Amazon best sellers list. I looked at the specs and was amazed that this laptop wasn't valued for around £600 and decided to purchase it.

Purchase of the year so far, considering I've even bought a Galaxy Nexus AND Olympic tickets!

- Intel Core i5. Definitely the biggest selling point of the laptop. Plus the laptop IS 64-bit which is a first for me. Very smooth, everything is fast including boot and sleep time
- Speakers are amazing, I wasn't too sure about SRS but it turns out that audio output on my laptop excellent, and with earphones plugged in, a lot better than the output of my iPod
- Touchpad is multi-touch, which makes zoom easy on websites
- Keyboard is really comfortable and it didn't take me long to get used to
- Laptop is actually really light and doesn't get too hot while using on your lap. Fan is quiet as well, unless you're running an intense application
- Playing 1080p videos on the Toshiba is an absolute breeze. No lag, slowdown and the detail and quality is great with the 15.6" screen.
- Intense applications such as Photoshop CS6 and Premiere Pro CS6 loads fast and you could probably do some moderate work without exhausting the laptop too heavily

- Crapware that comes with laptop. When will they learn...
- Touchpad can be a bit fiddly sometimes, but that's probably because I'm used to my other laptop. Sometimes I accidentally do multi-touch gestures
- Turning up the volume via the FN keys can be a hassle since there's no icon to show you how much you are turning the volume up/down.
