I quit counting how many times my toshiba went in for repairs, or even how many weeks I lost during those repairs. But I can say that every time but the last, toshiba “repaired” my laptop. Now, I’m not sure if we get a credit voucher for every time they fix it, but it “breaks” again, or if it’s just how many times they do nothing to it… regardless, for a piddley $25, $35 or $50 voucher to use @ toshiba, I thinks it’s useless.
I am so burned on toshiba, they’ll not get another cent from me – or anyone else I can into buying a different brand. I understand that defective models come out, but we, the consumer shouldn’t get burnt on the deal – as in this case.
I can continue to send in my laptop for repairs… but I’m not sure it’s worth the hassle of dealing with CS, (haven’t talked to them in 6 months.. is Eray still there?), shipping it, again and again. My guess is, toshiba is counting on people “getting over it” and moving on. I lucked in to my laptop last year.. it’s not easy for most people to come up with $1500 for a new one.. but it’s on my list for this next year. And it won’t be a toshiba model.
