Honestly I was disappointed when I first got it as a 3.0 device then it was upgraded to 3.2 and it was worst! but a week ago 4.0 update came up and literally change my Android experience the booting time is extremely faster and the functionality of my tablet is a lot better I am happy to have bought this item now and a Toshiba which really stands by its quality name.
Ice cream sandwich has landed and it made my thrive like brand new. Its much more fast, the screen seems to have gotten better and there's a difference in sound quality, better I suppose but then again I always use head phones.

I am surprised reading about bad experiences of so many people! I bought this device about 10 months back and I love it. Everything about the device is just great - except its built-in speakers which are not loud enough for a movie or a song (I use them for VoIP calling all the time though). I use headphones for movies - no issues at all.
Some people have complained about the touch screen. This device uses a capacitive touch screen. Such screens become unresponsive if dirt/smudge accumulates on the glass - it is not a Thrive specific problem. Clean the screen periodically with a micro-fibre cloth (read this: http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-a-Touch-Screen) - I clean my tablet once a month. Keep the tablet face-down on your table when not in use.
Some people have complained about SD card - I have been using a 32GB class 10 SD card from day one - never had any issue. File manager can manage everything on all corners of the SD card too.
USB thumb drive - works like a charm. Never tried a USD HDD - I am told that does not work.
Have not tried the HDMI slot yet - never felt the need.
Thrive is worth every penny that it costs, IMHO.
Ashley delavane, 13 Jul 2011Please get your facts straight if you are going to publish. I have the Thrive and your article... moreI can't get the device to read and SD card or external. That was the only reason I bought it. Total waste of money.
Possibly this is toshiba's worst ever device..not sticking to any of the features provided. I have been using it for 6 months now and it seemed a complete waste of money. USB not working as expected,Touch has been really dreadfull and lot more to list. Apart from that Toshiba failed to get ICS on thrive as that they have been promising from a longtime...
Correction: It does NOT have IPS screen.
Screen quality is very good but not with perfect viewing angles like an IPS screen !!
Overall, I like and use daily... Shame there are not very good cases for Thrive.
just saw this on a different website saying its gonna run on ICS not honeycomb
When will you come out with an automobile power adapter like all other phones and tablets for the at100?
JOORA, 12 Sep 2011I also want to know about usb internetI bought a USB internet device from clear.com and apparently the tablet has no options to connect to it under the wireless and networks settings tab so it appears thermo, these devices aren't compatible with this tablet:-(
Alip900, 03 Jun 2011It's better this has a 720p recording or will be surpassed easily!I spent a ton off money on my Thoshiba Thrive because it is horrible to use. The touch screen is really bad. We have to always click above what we want to actually select. To explain better I have to touch the screen 1/8 to 1/4 above any button or text i want to select. Because of this selecting to copy and paste is a nightmare and selecting words I'm trying to change in a sentence is almost impossible. Using headphones is frustrating on the Thrive as the volume is so low. I wish I'd bought an iPadthis is so bad. Trying to get the cursoir between the words iPadthis in the last sentence is impossible. I'm really sorry I wasted the money.
Here it is .. folk's. I went out an got the ( THRIVE ) 32GB from best buy in Minot N.D.! I think this was the best thing I've spent good money on in the past year 1/2..! I'll just say this.. My thrive as helped me in so many ways! I really don't know how I've ever gottin bye without it.. the knowledge an application's right there when you need it. Without haven to carry around a bunch of adapters to plug it in to almost anything, .. because of the components it has already.
I wanna know the price of this gadget in US Dollars [8gb] or in irish Euro...........Thanx in Advanced!
sujiai, 07 Jan 2012Anyone having problems using a sd memory card? Got a 16gig the thrive won't write and read it,... moreCorrection:-) apparently the file manager has issues reading the memory car but the media player gallery and the video library can access the memory card, however writing on the card still is a problem, other than that I love the Toshiba thrive tablet! Its fantastic!
