Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor speakers lovely keyboard to use, beautiful screen, very quick, but the speakers are truly woeful. The sound is great through earphones but the speakers are inferior to me 8 year old base level compaq. There is absolutely no bass at all. I'm not expecting it to make my ears bleed, but it does sound like the woofer has gone walkies. I'd send it back, but I can't afford to be without it at the moment. Decent sound is just a luxury. Don't they test these things before sending them out? 06 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by TOSHIBA S50-B-12Z Excellent Laptop After several weeks of use 8 continous hours or so each day very pleased with this laptop. No problems with space bar, touch pad and fan noise as reported by others. The backlit keyboard is a pleasure to use. 03 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Toshiba S50-B-12Z A Brilliant laptop! PROS: Its thin Its light Its solid Its powerful Its fast Its speakers quite loud Its screen is absolutely beautiful Its stylish Its beautiful! CONS: Touchpad isn't ideal. Microphone catches HDD noise. This laptop is worth every penny! Its very thin compared to similar laptops and very light. Despite that the battery life is good and charges faster than my other laptops. The screen is absolutely beautiful. I have never seen any screens on 15.6 inch laptops that comes close to this. Colours are very rich. Harman/Kardon speakers are good too although can't be compared to JBL. Built quality is excellent and this laptop looks very expensive and very stylish. The i7 processor is fast too and I had no lags or any issues with performance so far. The only thing that I would and will change on this laptop is its HDD drive to SSD drive. That will boost the performance to 300% and the microphone catching HDD noise problem will go away too. Touchpad sometimes doesn't respond to two finger taps but most of the time it does. Other than that I can't see any problems with it. Overall I would highly recommend this laptop to anyone personal or business users. Note this model S50-B-12Z is the best and only best model from Toshiba. if you go for any other model it will be miles different. I have tried many laptops and know what I am writing here. So go for this particular model and I promise you will get in love with it.Don't waste money on touchscreens, they are useless on laptops and the screen quality is usually much worse than this on any touchscreen laptops. 02 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by space keyand noise problems I thought the other reviewer might just have been unfortunate but no, I also had space bar problems. You have to really hit it hard for it to function. The fan kicked in after about 10 minutes and was noisy to the point of distraction. I returned it and John Lewis were their excellent selves helping me to exchange for a Lenovo which has been brilliant by comparison. 22 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointing As the review title says, I am very disappointed with this laptop. I am currently on my third try at getting a functioning laptop and this one will be returned as well. On all three, the space bar has not functioned correctly, which is highly annoying. On two of the laptops, there has been a gap between the track pad and the case, which suggests being put together in a shoddy manner, as well as scratches and signs of wear on the case on one machine. When spending this kind of money, it is not unreasonable to expect the basics (e.g. functioning keys) to be right. Although not directly related to the product, I would like to say that John Lewis has been very good about the repeated returns. 10 October 2014
