Terrible Computer (Have owned for almost 3 years)

Chris, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this computer around summer 2010. Since then, I've sent it back for repair around 5 times! 2 Speaker repairs, and 3 Motherboard replacements (hard drive, graphics card, and NIC have all failed and needed replaced several times). Today, after it is out of warranty and after sending it back several times, the computer will only boot half of the time and the Wireless card has failed.

DO NOT BUY TOSHIBA HDTV 40FT2U1

  • Summary: Really needed a new TV and purchased from Best Buy 40FT2U. The power board failed after two months. It is well known to customer support agents but they dont tell you that on the phone. They give you a ref# and tell you it will be about a week. After a week I called to follow up on part and they referred me to the 3rd party repair company nexcor whom advised me that these Toshiba HDTVs have a defective power board with an extremely high failure rate.
  • Pros: DIDNT BURN MY HOUSE DOWN
  • Cons: KNOWN DEFECTIVE MAIN BOARD AND POWER BOARD BACKORDERED FOR MONTHS

Please avoid at all costs

Angel Fountains, Amazon

  • Summary: I don't know why anyone has not mentioned it, perhaps these users didnt follow up or only use this machine for surfing, but it gradually (in less than 2 years) disintegrates and shuts down when you use heavy applications such as editing videos in movie maker or playing games. I have no idea whats up with this thing but i am sick of it, not looking back once i replace it. Don't believe me? Google it.
