Defective or Undependable?
on February 6, 2012
Set up is relatively easy (you would think). Plug in the AC cord (not included) includes 2 USB ports and 1 HDMI port. After initial set up I found one of the ports wasnt turning on my wireless usb mouse, I attested this to not enough power to turn on the mouse (no optical led glow from mouse) [instructions do say not all USB products are compatible] and switched to a wired mouse. I found that the dock was having difficulty reading the wireless mouse so after switching ports, plugging in the machine so many times, turning on and off the tablet I finally got it running as it should. The initial set up seemed relatively easy. [ I do have to mention having to play with the USBs/tablet connections for FIVE HOURS to get all the ports to work as they should]. There was a 'return item' request sent in at about hour 3 of messing with the device but I eventually cancelled it figuring the trouble to send in for a new one would be more bothersome then jiggling the wires every day.
After a week of use, this product still gives me trouble. If I put in the tablet while it is on the screen will freeze and the tablet will need a hard reset. I found plugging in the tablet as the tablet is turning on is the best way to avoid this.
I don't have the issue of "it takes two hands to take the tablet off the dock" issue and it is perhaps this loose connection that makes my dock unable to read the tablet from time to time.
Other than the MANY issues I've had with this product I cannot give it a bad review. It's lightweight and portable, and (when it wants) does the job it was intended to do. Plus, we Toshiba Tablet owners have no other choice at the moment. Enjoy what you can get. :)
