Summary: I bought this TV 3 or 4 years ago and it has been perfect. I have been using it for HD tv and as a second computer monitor (since it has every connection known to man in the back.) I think I got it new for around 600 bucks... and it is the best TV I have ever owned. Still looks as good as the day I bought it. I love Toshiba products (have a laptop from 7 years ago that is still running like a champ) and I will continue to buy.
Summary: Had to turn TV off and on from start to get picture. Died in second year. Toshiba had extended the warranty on this TV due to problem and paid to fix it, only problem is they replaced the board with the same problem board. Died again after a year. Toshiba said, too bad not their problem. Toshiba only warranties the repair for three months. I wont buy Toshiba products anymore. TV should have been recalled.
Summary: I press the power button; the power light changes from red to green, but no audio or video. I press the power button again; the power light turns to red. I press the power button; this time I have audio, but no video. I press the power button again. I press the power button again; this time I have both audio and video. This happens almost every day, sometimes twice a day.
Summary: Had this TV for over a year. It's just a mess. Just cracks real loud and goes blank then it wont let you shut it down, just sits there cracking and hissing. Have to pull the plug. Toshiba would not replace it. They'd repair it but with no loaner. This is a off and on problem so it could take a week or a month. Don't think the wife would be able to go without it for that long so we live with it. When it finally dies for good i'll go back to Panasonic.
Summary: I've had this TV for over a year and I'm not happy with it. Out of the box the picture and sound were both good, just what you would expect for the money. After some time however you discover a particular problem. What I've learned from tech forums since purchasing mine is that many owners of this model are experiencing the same problem. Often when you turn the TV on after it's been off for a while you will get sound but no picture.
Summary: I've bought Toshiba for years and have never had a problem. I have a Toshiba Television in every bedroom, my den and my living room but this is the last Toshiba I'll ever buy. Pro: when it works it has a beautiful picture. Cons: It hardly ever works. I have to turn the set on and off multiple times to get it to come on and at times it just goes blank. The sound goes off for no reason and you have to turn it off and then back on for the sound to return.
Summary: It was a great TV until the screen failed 18 months after we bought it. Just a big black blob in the middle of the screen, with the picture brightening slightly toward the edges. Why do TVs have such short lifetimes these days?
Summary: Some problem over hdmi: you must switch the tv on only after your device has been activated or you may get the fuzzy-snow-screen. It has *only* two hdmi(s). Audio is good and so is the picture. 1080i format is available. It's one the best money-worth hd TV on the market.
