Cons: had it up and running for just a couple of hours and it crashed due to a damaged hard drive that it came with. Huge disappointment and huge set-back on getting important projects done while waiting for issue to be resolved. Definitely think twice before taking a chance on a referb, but maybe you'll get lucky
Summary: OVERheated weeks after bringing it home from the store! NO help from Toshiba! hard drive failed less than 3 years after bringing home from store. NO help from Toshiba since day 1 of bringing this $700 piece of junk home! I got money from my father's passing and decided I would buy my very first laptop, as it was something I had always wanted...what a shame!
Pros: speed and nothing else
Cons: Everything! overheats, hard drive fails, NO SUPPORT from Toshiba!
Summary: Stay away from toshiba laptops, these computers are made with the cheapest of everything and you will be lucky if they last longer than 1yr. I knew after I bought it, I should have went with the HP the last one I had lasted 6yrs with no problems.
Pros: there is none with these, or toshiba laptops.
Cons: gets real hot, even with cleaning. flimsy design. Slow very slow., battery toast after less than a year. with a quad processor, it should be fast, but it's not. Now after 2years the screen is flashing, and got a warning from windows disk failure.
Summary: I've had Toshiba products in the past that I was quite happy with. This computer has many problems, any one of which would be a reason not to buy it. It advertises WiMax. They don't tell you it's an extra fifty dollars a month. On top of that, Clear won't even let me purchase the service even at that steep price. I specifically bought this computer for the WiMax, so I could use it in the field. This turns out to have been a very bad decision on my part.
Summary: Easily the worst computer I've ever owned. Toshiba decided to pre-load so many programs which slows down the entire unit. I don't even have many programs installed, yet it still locks up on continually. Please don't make the same mistake I did on this one....
Summary: This model has a design problem. 4 times to a a service in the first 6 months; 3 months in total being serviced and the problem persist. toshiba has the worst user support ever. "we don't replace laptops" they say (i called twice), even after four times in service the laptop still freezes. Last time had to change HDD; the new one come with preinstalled windows (that's OK) but half of the drivers were missing (video driver, sound driver, media button drivers, etc).
Pros: Good speakers.
Cons: A design problem causes constant freezing until HDD fails. I have to replace it twice in a year. Toshiba user support is the worst I've used in my life. Also this model has a huge bottleneck, my Acer - AMD fusion e-350 sometimes is faster than this.
