Pros: Newegg is awesome and the Thrive operating system is great. Easy to manuever!
Cons: The glass screen sponteneously cracked from the upper left hand corner (looks like a stress crack) 2 months into ownership. I have the hard back cover, the Toshiba leather case, carry it all in a neoprene padded case in my brief case, it has never been dropped or exposed to extreme enviroments or abuse. Toshiba will not cover this under the warranty! Did some research after the fact...lots of these cracking issues posted. Toshiba will not classify this as a manufacturer's defect. They say they have never had a complaint?!?!? DO NOT BUY the Thrive. Toshiba quoted me a repair of $170 - $400+ not worth the additional $25 to ship back to them. And let's not get into the maze of roadblocks to talk to a customer service rep - my calls were disconnected everytime they put me on hold. Of course I was blamed for abusing the tablet that I treated like a Fabrege egg!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast and easy to manuver
Cons: Toshiba support is a pain!!! I bought my Thrive with the optional back cover and black folding case AND I keep my unit in a padded neoprene tablet case. Pulled it out of my brief case (my third layer of protection) the week before Christmas to find 2 cracks in my glass eminating from the corner. I have never dropped it and have treated it in the most delicate manner as this is a HUGE $$ investment for me. I believe they are stress cracks. Numerous attempts to find a customer service rep at Toshiba was fruitless. Finally spoke to someone in warranty sales who gave me a number that no one seems to every pick up (over 20 minutes on hold). The warranty salesman told me that Toshiba does not cover glass in their 1 year warranty but if I spent $25 to send it back THEN they would let me know how much to fix it. Come on Toshiba...the competition is itching to get my business!
Other Thoughts: Love Newegg too bad Toshiba can't meet my expectations.READ FULL REVIEW
