    no good.
    support and service terrible
    money grubbing data dynamics
    charge a lot just to look at it even if nothing is wrong
    charge a lot$$$ just for small plastic mouse port cover
    I never used any Toshiba computer items after that.

    My personal experience is Toshiba notebooks are one of the best .. very close to IBM. Cant say abt the others cuz they may have a name for PCs in general but in notebook u cant go wrong with Toshiba.

    I wudnt noe abt e service centre tho cuz mine hasnt fail me .. not even once. Been using since my uni days.

    Thanks!

    since u already got it, i think better dun ask for reviews . just enjoy it =)

    before buying, criticise it (to see if its flaws are acceptable) , after buyiing, loving it =)

    Same. Bad for normal casual users (move around/carry laptop when laptop is still operating/never shut down comps but always on hibernate/standby mode)

    Those techie who know how to treat their laptops properly is another story.

    Bad experience for my entire class. 8/10 toshiba laptops have seen the Service Centre twice for the past 3 years for Hardware problems.

    My toshiba notebook has been nothing but a big disaster. They are expensive and unreliable. Got lots of issues with overheating (shouldn't have been allowed to sell this model with the heat issues). DVD drive has been replaced once and replacement doesn't work either (can't fix now cos warranty over and they cost way too much to replace). Customer service in Singapore is absolutely pathetic (I've had to deal with them a number of times now).

    I will never buy another Toshiba.
