    Question Lifespan of the Toshiba Thrive

    Hello. I would like to know what's the lifespan of the Toshiba Thrive, I mean, I have one, and before buying it, I read several reviews about cracked screens, the well-known sleep issue, the green screen on Skype, the screen falling apart. I have it since two days ago, and I purchased it being aware of all this issues.

    So my question is, how long would you expect this tablet will last? Also, I'd like to know if any of you guys have dropped it on the floor, for how long have you had it and all those sort of helpful comments about the Thrive's resistance.


    Thanks!

    You know I've actually dropped mine and so far have had no issues.I think its the same with anything, there will be a percentage with quality issues, and that's a statistical game. I have since put my thrive in the Toshiba protective portfolio and is even safer now.the main issue is the hit or miss customer support that Toshiba has.I personally think they have put out a very great product, but their customer support could use some work.

    OT, but are you in port for a few days? Where?

    Lol in my home away from home in the Med, Souda Bay, a NATO fueling station on the Island of Crete.

    Interestingly enough, with my Sim card, I can actually hey online when were underway sometimes.

    I've had mine for about 3 months and Best Buy just sent it to wherever they send things because the battery no longer charges. Other than that, no problems.

    I dropped mine (which is in a nice leather tri-fold case) so as it dropped, the screen hit this headset base at work... And it hit hard. No damage done to my device or invisishield protector. I've had it since December and love it

    i hope the thrive will last for years.but a lot of peoples will go with the newer tech before the thrive dies.there has been a couple post that one had knocked it off the table on hardwood hit on the edge of it with no damage.another said a kid droped it and landed on the screen and craccked it.i think it perty durable.

    Bilgediver: Are the German cafe (Bavarian breakfast!) and the wood paneled beer house still in Hania? Haven't been there since 1997.

    I have no idea, where in Chania is it? Really now all I do out in town is recharge my prepay broadband SIM card. You really don't know how addicting constant internet access its until you don't have it.

    Statistical game, I love that phrase. It's exactly the reason why I decided to buy it. Thanks!
