Nice performance but headset jack issue

I have owned this laptop for the last 4 days. Performance is good. Case is flimsy but since this machine is a desktop replacement that is o for me. The headphone jack is malfunctioning as described in another review. My solution is to use a USB headset. This works fine. audio this way is ok. No other problems to date. Windows 8.1 has a steep learning curve but is manageable. This unit was an upgrade from a Acer net-book that I still have. Keyboard is okay for me since I am not a touch typist. its close in feel to my net-book keyboard that has smaller keys placed closely together. Bought as an open box so I was expecting something to be wonky. Still, it is a good machine at the open box price and t meets my needs and is an order or two magnitudes faster then the dual core netbook it is upgrading. Got cooling stand for it to supplement built in cooling and am using it in balanced mode not high performance until it is burned in in a couple of weeks.

Bought it on Boxing Day, but returned it right after the new year holidays. The sound system was just horrible, and I couldn't find anything I liked about it. After using it for about 5 days, I went back to my half-broken 6 year old laptop. I just bought an Acer laptop instead.

not worth it

SO...not a good buy, No Bluetooth, absolutely bad bad sound. Toshiba over priced this item. it is a low range if not the lowest of all the laptops on the market. I would love to return it and go with acer instead of this totally useless product. do not buy it if you think your money worth more than just a shelf item.

Great Value

Quality product. Fast load up and downloading. Graphics are great. Only the sound quality of speaker is lousy. Must use an external speaker or headphones. Purchased the laptop on boxing day online only sale. Great price and delivery to my door step very quick!

Toshiba Satellite C50

Great computer, except for the sound. If sound is important to you, then this one won't work. It's pretty much like a tin can!
