TOSHIBA Thrive AT105-T1032 Tablet NVIDIA Tegra 2 1.00GHz 10.1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought for the standard feature set plus full-size HDMI, USB, and replaceable battery.

Cons: Toshiba pre-installed 3rd party applications as core system files, which makes them uninstallable. These games and utilities run automatically, and have been given storage, network, and other access to the device which makes them clear security threats. Toshiba support calls to find a solution to remove these threats have been horrible. They refuse to return phone calls as promised, fail to answer clear support questions, and have intentionally cut me off. They accept no responsibility for hindering their device with these non-essential applications, yet give repeated warnings that rooting the device will void the warranty. Toshiba gives no justification for any of this, which forces me to consider their motivation as profit alone.

Other Thoughts: For this device, Toshiba has intentionally introduced security issues, hindered its operation, and thus falsely advertised its specifications. Though they acknowledge these facts, they refuse to offer any resolution. I must therefore hold the device a security risk for storing and interacting with my personal and business private data - which makes the device practically useless. I recommend you consider other devices.
