back to article Tosh flashifies disk in demo hybrid drive

how fast do you want...

Thumb Down

load of old tosh

but like every other piece of junk with their name on it,it will be.

a) total crap that does'nt work as advertised.

b)as with most tosh shite,it will fail in use and then you have the fun of dealing with toshibas idea of customer and tech support,which is just to ignore complaints,warrentys or the law of land involved.

toshiba,punting tosh to those who know no better.

should be forced to rename to shitiba.

would never,ever buy,sell or recommend tosh crap to anyone,not even my worst enemy,the quicker shitiba go bust the better.


Re: load of old tosh

You must be using one of their keyboards to write that? I see what you mean!
