I'm writing this from a 4 year old Toshiba laptop that is still going strong, so I'm getting a kick...

/ok, no replies yet, but I'll get a kick out of them when you all get your act together

Not my fault. Since leaving Compag/HP I've bought nothing but Toshibas. Have 3 laptops currrently.

I never had trouble with the 20+ Toshiba laptops I supported.  Their AC adapters, on the other hand, would need to be replaced frequently.

Yeah, the connector to the laptop is very fragile. Had to replace 2 already.

Nearly every Toshiba I've worked on has a broken power jack. Terrible design.

Fortunately it's fairly easy to fix. Link

hey failmitter: Toshiba's profits are down 62%, not sales.

All you need to know about buying a TV: Sony, Sharp, Panasonic, Samsung.

I use a toshiba laptop and I use a Toshiba tv as my desktop monitor. They seem to be quality products.

I prefer HP over Toshiba for laptops, but that's mostly on price.  Toshiba's quality is generally very good, and
though they're not the cheapest, they're way better than Sony.

My Tecra M7 was the best art machine I have ever used.

That's a shame, I've got a 7 year old 37" Toshiba TV that's still going strong.

HP used to bite so hard it would have to be the last brand on Earth before I would consider leaving the basement to try it again.
Toshiba? I've purchased 8 in the past four years. Fast approaching HP in terms of losing my business. To be fair, my personal Toshiba laptop is still plugging along after 4 years though I had to replace the HD this week.
Samsung is my new go to for laptops and TVs.
Brother printers only for the past 8 years or so. Home, office, plant, warehouse, they are tough as tanks and cheap to operate as long as we use knock-off toner cartridges and drums.

My first HD television was a Toshiba DLP. I've replaced one bulb in it since I bought it (probably around 2005). Otherwise, it's still going strong. It currently resides in my den, where the kids use it to play video games.

I also have a Toshiba flat screen in my bedroom. It's 42 inches, and I got it from Amazon during one of their pre-Christmas sales for an insanely low price. It's a great TV. My main TV (in my living room) is a Samsung, but I have no complaints about Toshiba TVs.

The Toshiba laptop I owned in the early 2000s, on the other hand, was a piece of crap. My sister's Toshiba laptop lasted for about 5 years. I don't think I got two years out of mine.

I prefer Asus and Acer computers, but Toshiba is usually my first choice for TVs.

My 19" tube TV from '98 still looks and sounds as good as it did when I got it. And my 51" rear-projection TV from 2004 is indestructible... and I've tried to hurt it since it's only 1080i. And I've bought a dozen or so for work over the years.

Mine is about 3 3/4 years old. Works well but am thinking of upgrading this year.

S. Korea is the new Japan.

They're all cheap Foxconn crap anyway, "brand" doesn't matter. No one of them is that far exceptional unless it's got a big piece of fruit on the lid.

Pretty much, though Panasonic is generally good if you're looking for a Plasma. I think Sony these days are nothing more than rebranded LG's at a premium.

You misspelled "Vizio".

I have one of the last DLP TV's they made (65 inch). Bought it for $800 6 or 7 years ago when 1080P tvs were still hard to come by and relatively expensive. LOVE that thing.

Had no idea this was so common. Happened to mine also. Easy fix, but kinda inexcusable
