motherboard quit!

S. Lewis, Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: Laptop worked fine, then became non-responsive. System repair wouldn't work; motherboard couldn't read hard drive. Paid $ 750 for the unit, and it was used very little. Lasted less than two years. I expect more for my money.

Good while...

  • Summary: Pretty fast, not too bad machine but hard drive gone in 14 months. Would not buy again. I was suggested to pay 300 more for the macbook air which few friends of mine have for many years with very good reports, but didn't listen. I regret very much.

Don't do it!

SMcD, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Toshiba Portege is flimsy. The keyboard begins to break up from underneath. I was experiencing stuck keys and strange problems (the control key was sticking). They needed to replace the keyboard because the original had cracked into powder and caused the keys to stick.

SSD crashed in one year!

Kevin, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: Right at the time that my 1-year warranty ran out, my SSD crashed (according to Best Buy service). Toshiba started the 12-mo count on my warranty before I received it, BTW, and those few days are making a big difference now.

Disappointed

I. Clark, Amazon
17 April 2013
  • Summary: The good: this ultrabook is definitely light. The bad: the screen shakes when one is typing on a keyboard, trackpad has low responsiveness (you *really* have to push hard to get a click) and the OEM Windows install was so bad that the software was not capable of updating.

Nice Computer at first, but didn't last long & warranty is limited

Just Me "greatorrn", Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: Loved the size and weight of the ultrabook. Took very good care of it because I really liked the weight and size, but after 7 months it has started making high pitched noises all the time. Pretty short amount of time for something to have to have repair already.

This computer lasted 7 months

Amazon Customer "dogman2000", Amazon
18 February 2013
  • Summary: I buy 1-3 laptops per year for my research, which includes work at sites all over the world. Of the 45+ laptops that I have purchased for our research sites over the years, this is the only one that didn't last at least 5 years.

Flimsy screen, terrible service, ignores warranty

Katty, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: Started out good, overall good usability, battery is long lasting, starts up a bit slow but once you're on and plugging away worked pretty well....until the screen stopped working. Never dropped it, banged it or in any way abused it but one day the screen has streaks and black marks at the edge.

Don't ever buy this thing! It died in 4 months

Mikeltxu, Amazon
13 December 2012
  • Summary: I purchased a Z830 in January, and then got this one as additional notebook in August. Unfortunately, this is a poor quality version of the great Z830, and the SSD died within just 4 months. Pass this one.
