Summary: I purchased this TV to replace a smaller LG set that I moved to another room. There are not many name brand choices in this screen size. The reason I chose this one over the competitors is since I always hook up an external sound system to my TVs, I need to have a jack for external sound output. This is the only one that had it. Other reviewers have commented on the long delay at startup and the long delay when channel switching.
Picture quality lacks when compared to similar units
30 December 2012
Summary: There are enough reviews that mention the poor sound quality of this unit. I would agree the sound is not great, but it's probably fine for a small bedroom. I am surprised that so many reviewers give this product good remarks for picture quality (perhaps it's their first HDTV). My first impression was the picture quality was lacking. So I went to a local store.
Summary: My TV arrived on time with no problems, but after a few days the TV would apparently shut off and power itself back on. I say "apparently" because I don't know exactly what's happening. The picture suddenly goes blank, exactly like the power on screen and the Toshiba Logo appears followed by the picture returning. Even though I rarely use this TV this issue happened everytime I used it.
Summary: The picture on this TV is awesome. The speakers on the other hand are awful. Anything that should come out as a loud noise comes out as a loud sharp crackle. I don't think amazon will replace it because of that so I haven't even bothered contacting them. I don't think I would order this TV again.
Summary: this TV is the worst sound I've ever heard my phone has better sound when I connect my video game console every time you hear a high-pitched sound that hurts my ears is a lie that has dolby surround Rate it two stars because the image is the only certainty
Disappointed, Didn't work with for me on a long connection

Summary: My 24" ViewSonic TV failed after 2-1/2 yrs and I wanted to replace it with this Toshiba TV, which appeared to be of a higher quality. However, when connected to the same component connections that I needed at this location, and had worked perfectly in the past, there was noise in the picture and it was unstable, frequently breaking up....i.e., totally unwatchable.
Summary: Just got the tv a couple weeks ago. This is a nice looking tv with pretty good picture quality (not great). Whites are bright but dark scenes lose a lot of detail. Also, I have the sharpness turned up all the way but the picture is still not that crisp on my DirecTV receiver. There is noticeable blurring when a newscaster or talk show host moves his head.
Summary: I was extremely happy with this TV when I first got it (less than a week ago), and while I'm still happy with the TV itself, I'm very disappointed with Amazon. After 3-4 days of normal use, the TV's remote stopped working. I replaced the batteries and made sure they were put in the right way. I called Toshiba and they tried to trouble shoot the remote, to no avail.
