  • Summary: My description says it all. The laptop wouldn't boot. Trying to recover from the DVDs was impossible as the "destination location was gone." The BIOS boot menu (F12) said the drive had failed. Stay away from this model.

What happened to Toshiba?

T-Bone, Amazon
2 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought two Toshiba laptops (Satellite A665-S6093) for my home. One failed within the first year (mother board failure) and was covered by the warranty. The other has just failed and is 4 months outside of warranty. The failure of the second laptop was due to the HDD, which is a Toshiba MK5065GSX.

  • Summary: This drive came with my Toshiba laptop which is now 1 year and 4 months old. The drive was performing great until the last month when it started getting slow and now it has many bad sectors which make it unusable. For reference I have a Satellite A665-S6095. My battery is having problems too.

  • Summary: Where were all the QA people at Toshiba and Sony? When you send a 500 GB hard drive out new, where are all the QA checks that should have caught this. Now over 1 1/2 years later, Western Digtial takes over!!! I fail to understand how bad product gets shipped in new pc laptops!!!
  • Pros: Hard to think of anything positive on this one!!
  • Cons: I purchased a Sony Vaio in April of 2010. From the start this hard drive had problems. I was using Windows 7 Ultimate with major boot up problems. Windows would go into system repair mode. Unable to work around all the bad sectors. Also I was unable to backup my Vaio with Norton Ghost and Windows...

  • Summary: Give me my money back. I will no longer put low-quality Toshiba products into my Apple laptop.
  • Pros: Purchased Toshiba MK5065GSX 500GB Internal Notebook Hard Drive from Newegg.com on 5/26/10 to replace the original Toshiba 250GB Notebook Hard Drive that came with my Apple Mac Book. Everything seemed fine at first.

Any software application I was currently running would freeze up, requiring a forced quit. My Apple-MS Office applications faile...
