Toshiba Value Added Package
Toshiba Value Added Package addresses Toshiba laptop owners that want to take full advantage of the proprietary technologies the company has to offer through their products.
While your notebook really can live without Toshiba Value Added Package, it is recommendable to install it if you laptop model supports it or keep it if it came bundled alongside other software from Toshiba.
While not being in the top 100 best brands in the world right now, Toshiba still produces high-quality products and, although defeated by the Blu-ray back in 2008 and dropping the HD-DVD project, had its share or technology development over the years.
Considered by many users as being bloatware, bundled software by computer brands is sometimes (pretty rarely) actually helpful. Toshiba Value Added Package does fit this category by introducing the support for other interesting applications, as well as the ones it packs.
Toshiba Value Added Package consists of the Toshiba Common driver that comes as a bridge between software and the BIOS of the computer, the eco Utility that expands the array of power control management possibilities, the HWSetup which you can find very helpful due to its integrated features, the Password Utility, the Flash Cards for additional key functionality as well as the PC Diagnostic Tool.
All in all, Toshiba Value Added Package is a software suite that you can really enjoy or that you want to uninstall as you just do not need all those applications and the technology they help you make use of. It really is up to you if Toshiba Value Added Package proves to be your cup of tea or not.
