Poor product, even worse customer service!
4 January 2013
Summary: Keeps freezing up, toshibas answer...reset to factory setting and lose all of your info,games,& everything. No warrenty because its refurbished. Speakers are poor at best. Volume button works very funky. Speakers keep making a popping noise. Theses things are happening to both units we bought. Do like the full size HDMI and usb ports. Camera is just ok, pretty grainy. Battery life seems short. Easy to use when it works right. Would not buy again!!!!
Summary: The glass is very week. There are many reports of it breaking in the users hands. Look up broken screen on Toshiba's forum. $160 to %190 for replacement glass if you fix it yourself. The glass is not covered under warranty. Audio is subpar compared to other tablets I have tried. Video does not sync audio with several programs or any when Bluetooth is used. I was very disappointed. Yes, it's cheep but not worth the money.
Summary: You should consider very well if you really want a refurbished tablet !! Even it's written " manufacturer refurbished " don't beleive it ! That's a "lemon", no one knows how to operate this lousy operating system installed. Their only solution is to send it back and have a refund, or, send it to Toshiba service and reflash it, costs about 25$.
Summary: I have owned my Toshiba Thrive for a few months now and only run across a single issue. It may seem small to some users but I for one have to think it is a serious issue. Toshiba pre-installed the Kaspersky Security Software on their Toshiba Thrive line of tablets in the form of a 30 day trial.
Do Not purchase this product the Glass is too delicate

Excerpt: My husband got one of these tablets. 3 days later he dropped about 2 feet onto carpeted floor while it was in the case. It cracked the edge of the glass almost like a cell phone would crack when dropped onto concrete. You cannot buy the glass to have it replace on your own and if you send it to toshiba they want $250 to replace the glass since their warranty dosnt cover it.
Excerpt: When i first received the tablet it worked great, but within a few weeks it was already not working properly. Called the helpline and they just told me how to get it back to factory settings. That worked for awhile and then started happening a lot. I now i have to set it back to factory settings a lot and i lose everything on it. And that is so aggravating! It will make all programs force close and i cant do anything but reset it.
Summary: See my second update at the end: Dec 2012 I bought my 16Gb Toshiba Trive 6 weeks ago for two types of travel: long airplane flights to and travel in Africa, and electronic charts and plates for flying our airplane. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. And I've found some benefits beyond my original reasons for purchase. As for charts and plates in our airplane the iPad is the standard for pilots. But the iPad is a closed system.
