The SSD died in less than 2 years

JJ "dustinthewind", Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Seriously!?? Doesn't the fact these things have no moving parts making them very, very dependable? Disappointed to say the least; Going to cost a buck and a half to replace it myself, plus the hassle of reloading software. Loved the laptop...fast, great screen, fast boot, ...

You get what you pay for

Rome in Texas, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: Portege is still the lightest ultrabook on the market. However, I can't say much of other good things about it. Screen is very glossy, so you can't see much unless you're in a dark environment. When cooling fan kicks in, noise is pretty noticeable. Wireless card is unreliable.

  • Summary: The poster below is right his wifes netbook screen only costs about 25-45 bucks with shipping on sites like ebay and so on but this is NOT a screen like a netbook. 1. These screens have higher resolutions than normal screens of the same size. 2. The screens in ultrabooks are not put together...

Fragile

smart shopper "smart shopper", Amazon
12 May 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop but ended up returning it. The screen has way too much flex. CNET actually has a video review where the reviewer was able to show how drastic the screen bends. The image quality of the screen is poor. Colors are dull and washed out, reminded me of a 90's laptop screen.

  • Summary: I bought this a few days ago, and started using it. For some reason it doesn't connect well to my network. All my other internet devices work fine but the connection often drops with this device. Now I have to go through the hassle of returning it to Toshiba.

Good Ultrabook, Bad Tech Support

travis9952, Amazon
15 April 2012
  • Summary: I like this ultrabook. It's lightweight and the battery life is great. At the same time, something you need to consider when buying a notebook computer is the tech support and customer service. My portege z835 is having issues with its usb 3.0 port.

Screen Cracks

tskilli, Amazon

  • Summary: I have two other Toshiba's and no problems. Had the Protege for one week and was very careeful with it. Display cracked and Toshiba says screen isn't warranted so for $465.00 they would repair it. Even if you get the extended warranty a crack is not covered! Great computer loosy display.

Great looking laptop; network adapter problems. Too much hassle.

Philos "Philos", Amazon
20 February 2012
  • Summary: I ordered this laptop a week ago. It's very sleek, very light, has all the ports one needs. Two days ago though, the network adapter began acting up. I kept getting disconnected from the internet - a problem I haven't had with my two other computers, one being a toshiba i5 laptop.

Cheap build quality

Digital Bacon, Amazon
4 February 2012
  • Summary: Pros: It's so light that you don't know it's in your bag, and it offers more ports then other ultrabooks. Cons: The build quality feels very cheap. The screen is so thin you can actually bend it just by opening the lid. The screen also wobbles a lot just by typing on the keyboard.
