Summary: At first everything seemd great, Laptop powered right up, everything loaded up and ran great. Then the laptop went to sleep, after waking the screen was impossibly dim. The brightness settings had no effect. Rebooting was the only way to make the screen bright again. I looked online for easy solutions and found that this was an ongoing problem with these computers for years. I refuse to spend hours online with tech support fixing a new computer.
Summary: Hello, been using this for 1 day, and not very impressed. First the computer screen would not wake up from sleep mode. Lucky I found a post on Toshiba support site that state installing the latest version of the US bios (v1.5 in this case). I did that and that fixed the sleep problem. Secondly, the screen color is wash out, not very vivid. I tried adjusting the software settings and only manage to improve it slightly.
Summary: So I spent the money bought the Toshiba and of course the preloaded software would not load. The Toshiba tech would not help me but kept apologizing for his inability to help. Then I told him that I wanted to file a complaint for which he put me into the abyss and never returned. So today I tried to get someone from Amazon found that the Toshiba laptop is now 20.00 cheaper and the software still doen't work. I guess my IT guy will have to go through it at my expense.
Summary: I would have given this five stars, too, for the first ten months or so that I owned it. Then the hard drive failed. No problem, it's still under warranty, that's what I thought. So I ship it to them to fix, and they replace the hard drive, and we're good to go, right? NOPE! The second hard drive failed within 4 weeks. But once that one failed, the machine was out of warranty. Even though the hard drive was essentially brand new.
