  2. kalibugan ng buwan

    malibog kang bata ka!!! hahaha!!! sumbong kita kay tito mo hahaha!!! nung nag-ayos tayo ng mga gamit nung bagyong ondoy, ang dami kong nakitang cd ng porn sa kwarto mo. mas mainam na ilagay mo nga sa hard drive tapos i-encrypt mo para hindi mahuli yang mga porno mo, haha!

  3. @Cheso
    kadiri ka naman. kadiri manood ng kahit anong korean na palabas. yuck koreans.

  4. If there is anything that I could advice to would be buyers: DONT. Toshiba’s storage devices sucks. Wouldn’t even last you a year.

  5. Nahiya naman ako sayo sir! I’ve been using a Toshiba portable hard drive for almost 2 years now and it’s still perfectly fine. I use it most of the time.

    My advice: Wag bibili ng pirated products kasi.

  6. @yuga:
    “Canvio Desktop 3.0 Hard Drive – PHP5,699 for 2TB / PHP7,199 for 3TB” – ito na din ba ang personal cloud?

  7. @Suplado:
    We obviously have different experiences with Toshiba storage devices and I respect that, if you have yours running fine for 2 years now, then good for you, no need to be condescending, not cool. I don’t buy pirated products either.

    I am speaking on the basis of personal experience and a good number of friends. For Acer users here, i think they have a Toshiba OEM for their internal HD’s, and boy do they f*ck up within months. I have a couple of friends who have external HD’s who had the same experience. So I’m just trying to help. Besides, call yan ng bibili, I’m just trying to help. I don’t hate Toshiba as a whole, I just don’t think they are credible when it comes to storage devices.

    i also have a bad experience with this brand. my 750GB Toshiba external hdd was damaged as i accidentally plugged it to a different USB cable(cable that came from my Digicam). My collection of movies were gone in an instant.

  9. @dudel walang pakialamanan, kanya kanyang trip lang yan. Eh anong pinapanuod mo? Pinoy teleseryes na paulit ulit ang istorya? Mas lalong kadiri! You are fooling yourself kung sasabihin mong pinoys are better than koreans! Mahiya ka nga, be realistic. Kahit pinoy ka, di makakailang they are better! From entertainment to technology!

  10. oo nga naman,kung ako mas pipiliin ko pa yung korean dramas kesa pinoy teleseryes…
