Summary: I figured I would put my two cents in on this baby. I bought the Toshiba at the local Best Buy two years ago to get into the HDTV game at a reasonable price. Since then I've gotten a Westinghouse 32"LCD for our finished basement room. But you know what? This TV is still our primary one.
Summary: This Toshiba HDTV has worked perfectly since the day I bought it. Despite the weight (which makes it tough to move), the picture quality is better than a thin HDTV in my book. I don't understand all these people who have had problems with their product when mine has worked perfectly for two years.
Summary: For anyone considering this unit, consider our experience: We selected this unit because it was the best fit for our existing TV cabinet. Apr.29, 2005- Ordered the TV via the internet from a very reliable supplier.
Summary: You describe your "Toshiba 30HF84 30 inch HDTV-Ready TV" as weighing 88.2 pounds. Toshiba and other vendors say it is 118 pounds. It makes a difference to my intended purchase. Can you explain? firstname.lastname@example.org
Summary: I don't know why other people had problems. I bought this television and everything looks stunning. HD is mindblowing, and I love the widescreen. My Digital Cable and Xbox are hooked up through the component inputs and everything looks spectacular.
Summary: I risked buying one of these, because it was the maximum amount of TV I could fit into my 32" cabinet. But I should have listened to the warnings. When I got the TV in the cabinet and turned it on, the screen was spotted by blobs of pink, green, and blue. The picture tube was shot.
Summary: Using a comcast motorola 6200 HD box , the HDTV is exceptional( like looking out your window to see something in the backyard ) and the Non HDTV is acceptable (it is no better nor no worse than the picture I got with a Toshiba 27" I have had for 16 years.
Summary: I bought this TV when it was $714 w/free shipping. For what you get, this was an awesome deal. The delay in shipping was a little frustrating. Probably due more to my impatience. It took about 2 weeks.
Summary: I was extremely apprehensive when I ordered this TV, especially after reading all the negative reviews. But I can say confidently that any and all apprehension was completely unnecessary. The TV came delivered ahead of schedule by Eagle Direct.
