Summary: There are numerous forums out there about how this laptops power button sticks in the off position and will randomly shut the computer down. Do not buy. Toshiba will not help you fix the problem.

Summary: This computer has not functioned properly since I purchased it. Toshiba's customer service is the world's worst service - they put you on hold for hours, they say they will call back and do not, and they help with absolutely NOTHING unless you get to the supervisor of supervisors which will take a minimum of 48 hours. The keyboard on my computer locked sporadically and often which stopped me from being able to do ANYTHING involving the keyboard.
Toshiba Sucks! <1yr & video card & hard drive failing.
23 January 2012
Summary: Toshiba SUCKS!!!! Son called before warranty expired and they told him to try a few things. The tech never generated a repair order. So when we call back to say it didn't resolve the problem they say the warranty is expired and you are on your own since there is no repair order. At least the second laptop our family purchased from them, but the last Toshiba I will ever own. Less than a year and the video card was failing and now the hard drive is failing.
Pros: None that I can think of since kind of hard to find pros when can't see work and hard drive fails.
Summary: I do not recommend buying this computer. The backlit keyboard was a good idea, but the keyboard otherwise sucks in performance as it does not respond to normal keystrokes. Horrible. I've contacted Toshiba customer service as I've only owned it a month and we'll see how they respond. This was my 4th Toshiba laptop so i'm pretty disappointed.
Pros: back lit keyboard
Cons: Keyboard is unresponsive and therefore makes lots of errors
