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.
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. Over the next couple of days screen degrades to zero. No problem right, should be covered by warranty? Right...
Summary: Won't purchase Toshiba again. They did not honor their warranty; we have a now unusable laptop and are out our purchase price of $800. We purchased this Toshiba. Upon setting it up we noticed it had a small green transparent dot on the screen. This transparent tiny green dot did not interfere with any functions so we thought nothing of it. Just after the 30 day period of being able to return and receive a full refund from Best Buy..
Summary: I do not recommend this device. It is doomed to fail. After having my Portege less than a month the screen cracked as I gently removing it from backpack. I thought the screen looked flimsy so I have been very careful. Looking at where the crack happened I discovered that there is a gap between the base and screen that allow compression of the screen that puts pressure enough to crack screen.
Summary: I am a computer scientist, I bought this computer with the intention of using it for my job. I needed a light and responsive computer that would allow me to program on-the-go without needing a power cord everywhere I go. Generally I am not picky with computers, my previous laptop was an HP from 8 years ago, anything I bought today would be better than that. When the computer arrived I noticed a couple things upfront. The screen was incredibly flimsy.
Summary: I received the Z835-P330 on Monday but by Wednesday the screen was blank for 20% from the right hand side. There was no misuse or man handling, it worked perfectly as far as I could tell on Monday and Tuesday and I was delighted with it and recommending it to others! While it was switched on I moved it from one desk to another and when it came back from sleep mode the screen showed 2 inches of white down the right hand side.
