Was Very pleased, But Now Just Pissed off
on November 12, 2011
After researching to death what tablet to buy and visiting several over priced brick and mortar stores I decided on the Toshiba Thrive. Reasons: Able to replace battery, lots of available ports, runs Android and lastly: not an IPAD. I have not experienced any problems with the tablet works perfect.
Updated 18 Jan 2013......... Purchased this item 6 Nov 2011 and gave it 5 starts. After preforming ICS update and waiting for Toshiba to fix the issues that ICS caused I have to downgraded it to 2 stars. There is a forum filled with users complaining about the same issues since the update. Toshiba's response is they warranty the hardware and not the software, they had a third party handle the upgrade so it is not their problem. This is totally illogical of Toshiba, their response just baffles me. Is it not their product? I can not go back to the prior Honeycomb, the upgrade to ICS prevents going back. BUT If I send the item to them and they will format it to Honeycomb... AT MY EXPENSE! What the cost is is unknown and they would let me know when they receive the device.
This is my first and last Toshiba product I have owned..... I will never, never buy another Toshiba Product.
