Pros The processing speed is pretty fast. Of course it has to keep working for you to care about that.
Cons The first one died, the second one was defective. I gave up after that!
Summary I bought this for a great price on a Cyber Monday deal for only $299 online at Best Buy. Thank goodness they have a 15 day return no questions asked policy because on day 8 it just up and died. It wouldn't turn on at all, trying to charge it didn't do any good. It was a dead brick. I took it back and they ordered another one for me. When I got this one and downloaded the Facebook app from Google Play, it wouldn't work right. It wouldn't load any pages I tapped, I just got blank pages no matter what. After uninstalling/reinstalling it 3 times, emailing the FB app support (they never answered), resetting the thing back to factory settings and trying again, it still wouldn't work. I went into Best Buy to check out any other tablet that had the same version of the FB app on it. It worked fine on those so I determined there must be something wrong with the Toshiba and thankfully Best Buy was good enough to take it back again and this time I bought a Galaxy Tab 3 and am very happy with it so far. Save your money, the Toshiba Excite Pure will be an expensive paperweight.
Pros Value when it works
Cons Horrible build quality
Summary "Ignore the hype and specs. Could be a nice value tablet if the build quality were better. Purchased first tablet and within a week it wouldn't charge. Sent it in for repair. Now, the second one (the NEW replacement) won't work either. Same issue...won't charge. Tech support will only offer another replacement due to it being past the 15 day return period--like I want this "piece" after having two fail in approx. two months. Neither Toshiba tech support or Customer Relations Manager have been willing to help other than replace--now on escalation hold for Toshiba Direct manager. After 40 mins, I'm hanging up and choosing to write reviews. Toshiba might not care but venting on a review makes me feel better and might prevent someone else from buying this tablet."
