Problems with booting up

fresh123, Amazon
13 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought my laptop about 1 month before going to college. It worked perfectly then, but after coming to college the laptop has stopped working. The first time it was in sleep mode and when I came back to turn it on it wouldnt turn on. I pressed the power button, I did the thing with removing the battery and holding the power button for 30 seconds and still nothing. 8 hours later I try to turn it on and it does.

Lowsy sound

B&D "parents of Adam", Amazon
22 June 2010
  • Summary: Awful speakers, tiny sound, no depth - can't hear it with any other noise in the background - not even with the AC running!!!!! If you need a laptop for anything that involves listening to sounds (playing music, DVDs, audiobooks, using Skype...), forget about it. And the customer service is crap. Simply return it before it's too late.

1-year good functioning

Arbaje240, Amazon
4 June 2010
  • Summary: At the beginning I was satisfied with the product. But in less than a year it started giving problems. First, sound didn't want to work. I sent the computer which was in warranty and it got a change in the motherboard and the speakers, which didn't do anything because it stills doesn't work. Then the battery is dying, in almost the same period of time, it has to be change (I don't know how because is money I dont have).

  • Summary: We bought this laptop as it seem good value for money; but I can only say you get what you pay for; after exactly 1 year and a month after the warranty run off; the lapttop started shutting down out of the blue; the not charging; then overheating!!!!. I have taken it to a repair center anmd they wanted to charge me £200 to fix it... Avoid at all cost!!!

The lousiest customer service ever

G. Barker, Amazon
21 September 2010
  • Summary: My machine has been back for repair three times and three times they failed to recognise the galring obvious fault and returned the machine back to me with a 'no fault found' delivery note. Oh and the third time it came back they even neglected to return my power lead. When I rang to complain I was treated with nothing but patronising derision. Toshiba customer service? Don't make me laugh! Buy from them at your peril, you have been warned.

Un auténtico fraude

juliabartula, Ciao
3 August 2012
  • Summary: Hace 2 años y dos meses compré este ordenador Toshiba en FNAC y me costó 759 euros. Al año y un mes, la pantalla se apagó y dejó de funcionar. Menos mal que todavía estaba en garantía y me la cambiaron. Un año y un mes más tarde, la pantalla se ha vuelto a apagar y ya no entra en garantía. La reparación son 200 euros o más y también tengo que cambiar la batería, ya que ya no dura ni media hora. Conclusión: un auténtico fraude ordenador!
  • Pros: rapidez
  • Cons: Mala Calidad componentes .  Se rompe con facilidad

Montags-Gerät oder nicht?

ManicPirate, Amazon
27 March 2010
  • Summary: Vor 8 Tagen kam der Toshiba hier an (nicht bei amazon gekauft). Erstes Anfassen... Entsetzen : Tastatur gibt deutlich nach, in der silbernen Tastatur war ein billig aussehender weisser Plastikstreifen eingesetzt.....dabei sollte die Tastatur eigentlich schwarz sein. Ausserdem ist der Deckel nicht verriegelbar und die Anschlüsse rechts nerven. Erstes Einschalten.... hmmmm.....Bildschirm verändert bei leichten Kopfbewegungen DEUTLICH Helligkeit und Farben.
