Summary: The most expensive piece of crap I ever bought TECRA S1. Died in the first week, was repaired and lasted a further 11 weeks ...Has been residing in the shed with all the useless rubbish that is accumulated over the years. Has been there for 3 years now..
I have NEVER recommended Toshiba after this bad experience....
I will NEVER recommend Toshiba products again..
Summary: Tecra S1 is a piece of crap according to my experience: replaced keyboard, touchpad and now also hard drive and battery need to be replaced. Not to mention the touchpad failed for the second time. Next time I'll buy a Thinkpad.
Summary: Tecra S1, top series they say... motherboard is to be replaced, hard drive is to be replaced, pointing device is to be replaced. Is this what a high-end class hardware is about? Thank you, I will switch to another manufacturer. With my DELL I have never had a single problem.
Summary: Never ever buy Toshiba again! Very bad quality, cheap construction. Repairs are a nightmare!! Every Toshiba I have ever seen has had the motherboard replaced at least once. None of the software drivers are standard. To install the drivers you must strictly follow instructions which are multiple pages long... if for any reason the install doesn't work- start over!
Summary: Repairs needed within the first year:two new keyboards, two new motherboards, replace LCD screen, new modem, new CD ROM drive, all the connections needed to be changed. I first purchased a Tecra 8000, After having it in the shop for 8 months of the 10 months I owned it, Toshiba sent me a Tecra 8100 because they were unable to fix my orginional one (I had to fight for a replacement. After speaking to a dozen people, they said there was nothing wrong with the pc.
Summary: Toshiba as a company puts out a low quality product. Although the company did fix my computer very quickly, to fix it it had to replace my screen, battery, and keyboard. (less than six months later my screen is broken again).
Summary: I am user of Toshiba laptops more then 30 years. I started with T1000. The Tecra R850 is the worst Toshiba laptop I ever met. Keypad - simply unusable. The space bar short and works only if you press on the middle. The half sized arrow keys, PgUp, PgDn keys very unconvenient. The Accupoint mouse is unusable. You can not use it without pressing the surrounding keys. The screen resolution is very bad. You can see few cells only in Excel or few lines from your document.
