Great Alternative To Toshiba Replacement Part
on November 24, 2011
After having my Toshiba laptop for two years, the power cord started to malfunction. I think the issue was the point where the cord plugs into the laptop. That connection seemed to be loose to me. I couldn't believe that thing only lasted two years. I only use my laptop at home, and ninety percent of the time its just used in one room of my house, so it doesn't get moved around much. I went online to Toshiba and this part was going to cost me $70 plus! Then I started reading horror stories of other Toshiba owners, who while happy with their laptops, HATED the original power cord/adapter. Some were on their FIFTH replacement! The Toshiba power cord/adapter received horrible reviews and I decided no way was I going to purchase one, just to have it break down in another year or two. This adapter is a blessing and the price point is fantastic. It even has a blue indicator light on the adapter so you know that it is plugged in and charging. The section of the cord that plugs into the laptop is shaped like an L, and it swivels so when you change positions or move the laptop, the cord just rotates. The original Toshiba adapter was a straight plug, it had no curve, so when you moved the laptop, the cord would get caught or just come unplugged. The only reason I didn't give this particular product five stars is the cord that goes from the laptop to the adapter needs to be somewhat longer. The cord that goes from the adapter to the wall is fine in length though. I do recommend this product as its such a great, low priced alternative to the expensive Toshiba replacement part.
