I made a very firm decision many years ago to never buy anything Toshiba.
I bought a Toshiba TV, and it was designed with the default volume level at full volume whenever the TV lost power and then when it got power back, it would power itself back on without human intervention.
Try experiencing that when the electricity goes down and back up at 3am. Yowsa!
I complained about this, and was told bluntly by a VP of Engineering at Toshiba that this was the way they designed it and it couldn’t be changed.
With a corporate engineering department attitude like that, I will never buy any Toshiba products ever again.
That’s very interesting, thank you. And better than the usual ‘I had a lemon PC from this company’ story. Weird design decisions.
