Summary: If it wasn't for the low audio levels, I'd be happy with the thrive, now I want to sell it for a loss and by something else.
Pros: Fast and smooth. Screen is bright clear and smooth to touch. Full size SD card slot is perfect. USB port works fine for most purposes. Basically the device is perfect for browsing the web, watching videos (not sound.. see cons below) and viewing pictures. I don't play games on it so i have no opi...
Cons: Audio, audio audio.... Why couldn't Toshiba engineers take the extra time to test the audio thoroughly? The problem is that the headphone (3.5 mm) audio output is not loud enough. At max volume levels, the outputted audio is so faint that the device is useless for watching movies/videos and listi...
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.
Pros: Nice Tablet - capable of almost anything, particularly like the USB and SDXC interfaces
Cons: The big con is that the power button failed after less than a year. Taking it apart and inspecting shows it to be a fairly low quality switch - sigh - this button is pressed all the time to wake the unit up, it should be more durable. only other con is that it is a little thick due to the rear co...
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: For this device, Toshiba has intentionally introduced security issues, hindered its operation, and thus falsely advertised its specifications. Though they acknowledge these facts, they refuse to offer any resolution.
Pros: I bought for the standard feature set plus full-size HDMI, USB, and replaceable battery.
Cons: Toshiba pre-installed 3rd party applications as core system files, which makes them uninstallable. These games and utilities run automatically, and have been given storage, network, and other access to the device which makes them clear security threats. Toshiba support calls to find a solution to...
Summary: You're basically paying $120 for toshiba to include a $25 memory chip instead of a $15 chip. Unless you need more than 48GB (16 internal, 32 on sd card) flash storage, there is no good reason to buy this model.
Pros: 16GB model is reasonable
Cons: $120 for an additional 16GB is serious ripoff
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...
