"I've had this laptop the Satellite P25-S670It's been working great since I bought it, although I wish I bought it later, since it's had some price drops.Other than that, it works great, runs games fine, dvd picture is great on the 17 inch screen, and the tv tuner is awesome, I record all my favorite shows.There is only one complaint that I have, when I start up UT2k4, it takes forever to load up maps and such, but I doubt this is a problem due to the computer, as many of my other friends also have this problem, and they use a wide range of computers (dell, Hp, etc.) Battery life isn't that great, around an hour to an hour and a half, but I bought this mainly as a desktop replacement, so I rarely have to rely on battery power.The buying process was quite simple, went to comp usa, ordered one (since they were out of stock) came back a few days later to pick it up.I immediately took it to a lan party not more that 3 days later (didn't feel like lugging my pc with me) and it ran great. Ran all the games I wanted to play, and ran them fast (even faster than my desktop.) I would most definitely buy another Toshiba Laptop in the future."
"and ANOTHER: (im getting quite sick of this)Anyway.7/29/04Got the computer back, after having the computer worked on.. keyboard, mouse, dvd, the works. comes back nothing happened. Same day.. ANOTHER dvd device i/o error.. (same day all of my computers died (and iPod.) Send it in again. now 8/04 toshiba calls and says its 700 dollars AGAIN to fix the damn laptop (did i mention they had it longer than I DID?) plus now im tied for the purchase price for the laptop. ummm howbout you fix my dvd drive and send it back to me.. they said theres a spill in the keyboard.. NOT. Dropped. mabye by ups but not by me. so I tell them to fix my dvd.. everything else is FINE! (people dont have your mother write a nasty note to them in the box. then you get screwed like me) so im gunna have it sit there for a few months, see if they return it. if not. claims court here I come.another Update:7-20-04Called Heather, Legal rep of toshiba.. free replacement of the whole computer.. hehe good because DVD Hard Drive, Mouse, Keyboard and LCD are all messed up. nothing fixed.Where to start with the Toshiba P25-S607..I bought this in january, few minor problems, slow dvd player and cd burner, (a 2X burns faster than this thing does), sucky battery life (hour to hour and a half). The proc is not a 2.8 gig p4, it is slower than a 4 yr old p3 dell at 2X as slow. This is not a laptop. this is a rip off for 1800 back in january.Problems:Several errors that result in no boot. Solution restore from cd.Purple screen, Solution: re-install video drivers.And my most recient and severe problem:The Dc-in pin came off. I tried to get a replacement number. no luck. Sent it in. Toshiba said no charge.Four days later they call up and say.. umm sorry but its gunna be $728 to replace the system board, wifi antenna, Harddrive EMI shield, and about 300 screws. This was on May 24th. It is now June 11th. No laptop, I keep getting Lied to about ship dates. My latest date is June 24th. One month without a diecent computer. Toshiba sucks in general. I should have gone with dell. The drive crashed in my desktop, and they replaced and got all the data transfered from old to new in a day. Much better. and dell speaks better english than toshiba does **UPDATE** Got the Laptop on June 14th. Next day i get it back, i go to play halo (well try) and the dvd doesnt work. call em up.. send it back in.. idiot who repaired it dropped the hard drive (broken) and the dvd drive.. quoted wednesday the 30th to get all the parts.. call wed to check.. ooh sorry but its been delayed to next wed.. Thursday.. came in and repaired.. should have back monday (hello its a holiday.. duh) so.. im gunna return it to circuit city.. or sell it brand new.. all of it sept the base has been replaced. bye bye piece o shit"
