Pros: Easy to add second sata drive internally.
Get three eggs because of the hard ware on it .
1) No win 8 install disc or the oem offering to sell the back up discs. So make sure you makea full backup of your hard drive and make recovery discs before you try to alter the computer.
my win 8 oem licensed product key is contained in the motherboard im told by asus. So if my hard drive is broken, im required to send this laptop back to asus and pay for one way shipping to replace the hd and os withon 90 days. If it is outside of warranty, i would be required to pay $100 plus dollar for the hd and os. I was told by microdoft that i do own the right to my l license key and asus is required to give me the product key. I spoke to a supervisor at asus and im told that they would not provide me my product key and the company denies the fact there is one fore the laptop. I asked well how can i get product support from micosoft if i dont have my produuct license key. Asus had no answer for me...... now i have to buy another operating system that comes with a disc and product key (pretty upset about that).
2) i do not like the switch to the new bios (efi?). Thankfully you can disable it by turning off secure boot. From what i read, doing this will make win 8 unbootable, so use caution.
3) the refurbished laptop has a cheap feel to the removable keyboard but it still works. So i guess i can live with it.
Other Thoughts: Overall im really disappointed in the aoftware on this laptop. Well atleast i only paid under $500 for this. Advanced users beware of this lemon.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: works, when it works, but check hardware cons first.
Cons: I've had USB error blue screens since I had this laptop. Error happens in both windows and Linux. Leads me to believe it is a bios related error. Sent laptop to Toshiba for repair, get it back and it still has the same USB problem.
After calling several times to resolve issue with case managers and customer relations, no suitable resolution was offered.
Other Thoughts: I was promised several things by this company. All of which were never met. I was told my hard drive would be replaced when sent in for repair (it never was). I was then told I would have to pay for shipping on recovery cd's for recovery partition after I was promised a new hard drive with the partition restored.
Overall bad company to deal with when something goes wrong. I will never buy another toshiba product again, and I urge you to reconsider your next toshiba purchase.
This review is from: PLANTRONICS .Audio 355 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset
Pros: Have had this set over a year. I have ran over the wire to it so many time with my computer chair and it still works great.
I originally bought this item for skype. I use this headset for just about everything. Music, movies, games, skype, etc.
Cons: None really, except the volume on the headset gets a little loose after a year of playing with it, but it still works. Would still buy this item again.
Other Thoughts: My only complaint is the increase in shipping costs. $7.68 UPS 3day flat rate (and it never gets her in 3 days). I can order from other company's the same product for a fraction of the shipping cost. Shouldn't have to cut the cost of your product because of your shipping cost :-/ .READ FULL REVIEW
