Summary: I used this tablet daily, until I let it do the ICS update. I assumed that since the update was coming from the manufacturer, it was stable and vetted. Not so much. Even after uninstalling just about everything, it is laggy and lockup prone. Toshiba just says that the warranty is expired.
Summary: If you got ripped off buying this 'tablet', at least DO NOT UPDATE. Bugs and instability would be an understatement. This product worked, prior to recommended update. ICS is awesome on all my other devices. For the price you could purchase two other, more dependable units. Nothing from Toshiba.
Summary: I have really enjoyed my Thrive since I purchased it in December 2011. I take it with me every where I go. Last night I powered down the device and plugged it in for the night so I could have a full charge in the morning. When I tried to turn it on this morning, I couldn't get it to turn on.
Summary: I bought my Thrive in September. I loved it but even with EXTREME care the glass developed a stress crack. (I purchased the ruggerized back cover, the Toshiba leather case, applied a screen protector, slipped all that in a padded neoprene case and carry it in my brief case..
Pros: Newegg is awesome and the Thrive operating system is great. Easy to manuever!
Cons: The glass screen sponteneously cracked from the upper left hand corner (looks like a stress crack) 2 months into ownership. I have the hard back cover, the Toshiba leather case, carry it all in a neoprene padded case in my brief case, it has never been dropped or exposed to extreme enviroments or...
The one I got was DOA and Toshiba's customer support is THE WORST!

Summary: I got one of these for Christmas and immediately opened it and charged it, until the white light came on indicating it was fully charged. All excited.. I hit the power button. Here comes the Toshiba logo.. and what looked like colons and periods all over the screen..
Summary: I tried to get this as part of their Black Friday sale. I was online right at midnight the second it went on sale. However I was NEVER able to add it to my cart. Did they have, like, 5 of these? (If that?
Pros: Great Tablet, too bad Newegg's servers bogged and I couldn't get any!
Summary: After researching to death what tablet to buy and visiting several over priced brick and mortar stores I decided on the Toshiba Thrive. Reasons: Able to replace battery, lots of available ports, runs Android and lastly: not an IPAD. I have not experienced any problems with the tablet works perfect.
