    I have had a problem with booting up my Toshiba 6100. But I can only thank Toshiba immensly for the great product support. They have extended the warranty on all mainboards for three years. No other manufacturer would even contemplate doing this. Keep up the good work… Read Full Review

    The Toshiba 6100 has been the best laptop I've ever owned, nothing but the most polite and speedy service from Toshiba. Great job by Toshiba, nothing but compliments for this fine company and their products… Read Full Review

    Because it was the best laptop, the Toshiba team didn't make any drivers for Windows Vista. Microsoft will recall the support for Windows XP and Toshiba are not ready yet any beta driver or fool functional driver for it. Vista Advisor say that the laptop can run Vista Business, but without support of Toshiba driver, is nothing.

    The Toshiba 6100 is for the most part a reliable hard working notebook with minor concerns. Like everything else it depends on what you're using it for. Currently I run Oracle 10g on it without any serious issues… Read Full Review

    Written on: 11/01/2004 by davesheppard (1 review written)

    I have had the motherboard on my Toshiba 6100 replaced because of overheating problems. Now I have to have the motherboard, video card, and power supply replaced because of electrical problems. However, Toshiba has refused it under the warranty that the laptop was still suppose to have. In addition I have been working for 3 long months to have this issue resolved. I have never had such poor service and used a product so FULL of problems as this laptop has. I agree with the option to run from… Read Full Review

    We own 2 toshiba 6100's. A 1905 and a 4600. Both toshiba 6100's have the same problem. They power up for a few minutes then shutdown. I called Toshiba support after reading all the problems that other toshiba 6100 customers have had. Toshiba support said there are no known problems and said to take it to a repair center and pay to have it fixed. I will never buy another toshiba product.

    At least you should be right with Dell, its so cheap and nasty that you'll find it falling apart a lot faster than your Toshiba. The IT guy at your company sounds like a dill if he thinks Dell are the answer. Tell him to use the best in the business "TOSHIBA"

    Well if you want to use a cheap, nasty computer use Dell. At least Toshiba have the distinct advantage of being an excellent company with excellent products.

    Agree. My 6100 had a complete HD meltdown at 6 months and now, 6 months later, the MB, and VC died. I'm not happy and Toshiba probably won't get more business from me. I loved my first Toshiba and that's why I bought this one. Oh well...bye, bye Toshiba. I hear Dell is the hot item now, my company buys ONLY Dell, the IT guy refuses to have any other 'puters in the place.

    “I've just sent back my FOURTH Toshiba 6100 since...”

    Written on: 05/03/2003 by Susie. (1 review written)

    I've just sent back my FOURTH Toshiba 6100 since October 2002 (in 5 months). Each one would all-of-a-sudden ask for the HDD password, rendering it useless per Toshiba Support personnel. An analysis by a data recovery firm said "The drive was found to have problems internal to the HDA (Head Disk Assembly).The unit was opened in our cleanroom / cleanbench. The unit was found to have disk media "stiction" (i.e. breakdown of disk lubricant)."

    FOUR times? Run, don't walk, from this product… Read Full Review

    Written on: 24/07/2003

    There is an even worse design flaw with this machine. Laptop starts freezing and you have to do a hard boot after taking off batt. A Bad RTC CMOS error comes up.
    <br>The fix is change the motherboard and power system. Unfortunatelly this is only temporary as it comes back.
    <br>This is happenning to hundreds of 6100s and on the Toshiba forum is a hot thread.

    The Toshiba 6100 may have a couple of problems, but it is still better by far than having a Dell or an ACER. Stick with Toshiba, they are still the best in the laptop market.

    Guys,
    <br>Just to let you know that if you own a Toshiba 6100 although they do seem to have one or two inherent problems, any authorised Toshiba Repair centre will repair the unit free of charge for you. Toshiba are aware of the issues arrising through use of this unit and have extended the warrantee indefinantly.

    I had the same problem with my Toshiba 6100 Satellite Pro and am now fighting with Toshiba. They have changed my hard drive 3 times - and want to change it a fourth time. I refuse. I want either a reimbursement or a new computer. This product is now discontinued but I'm staying away from Toshiba products.
