Battery died after 8 months, seller won't replace it
26 February 2014
Summary: Purchased from BestValue2012 (Order by 18th Dec for Christmas Delivery) seller in July 2013. Battery of Toshiba is now dead. BestValue2012 state warranty for battery is only 6 months, and will not replace it. Surely you'd expect a laptop battery to last more than 6 months!
Summary: I bought this laptop about five months ago mainly because it's one of the few out there that does not have Windows 8 preloaded. I have to say this is without doubt the worst laptop I have ever owned. The basic functions are okay, although the ENTER key has already given up the ghost. My main problem is with the ******* touch pad. It has a mind of its own and frequently scrolls to the top of documents I'm working on.
Summary: I'm quite happy with this replacement for my Toshiba Equium that decided it didn't want to boot up any more,,, The sound and graphics are great. The keyboard is slightly to the left of centre, which is slightly awkward, but I am getting used to it. Windows 8 was awful, but 8.1 is better, so I recommend upgrading as soon as you can! It is still a learning curve, though, but it's not too bad after a week or so using it.
Would strongly advise not purchasing a laptop via Amazon

Summary: Happy with the laptop and with the limited service that can be provided remotely. My advice to any purchaser is that if you know much more than basic software installation procedures then purchasing such via Amazon and this supplier would be fine. In my case the laptop setup process did not follow given, Toshiba, guidelines and, not having the required knowledge, I had to take it to a local technician.
