Summary: Bought this in august 2013.Smart TV feature's are a complete joke.After almost 10 months of failed firmware updates.This TV completely failed to connect to wireless anymore.Took it in for repair and had to have the entire system board replaced.So far it works but the system will crash if you try to use some of the apps.So the smart TV features are still useless.Your better off getting a regular TV without it.
Summary: It is one year and almost one month since we received/bought this "smart" TV. It is now giving us the "repair needed" prompt and not working at all. It is one month out of warranty. This TV was very lightly used as it was in the guest room of our second home.
Toshiba 39L4300U 39-Inch 1080p 120Hz Smart LED HDTV with Built-in WiFi

Summary: The display is excellent and the setup was easy, including adding it to my WiFi network. I like most of the features but not sure how much I'll use some of the Internet access capability. It's a bit slow and clumsy to move the cursor around to hit the links that I want. Probably, with a little work, I could do it better but not sure that I ever will. The Netflix feature works great. I don't like the "IR Blaster" feature.
Summary: As far as being a Television, this unit is fine. The picture is good, and the sound is above average. However, I spent a little bit more to get a smart TV, I thought it was pointless to use my TV to watch Netflix from my PS3, when I could just watch Netflix from my TV. I wasn't expecting much from the software, but at this point I can say it was 100% pointless to purchase this specific TV. I turn the WiFi on periodically because I want to see a useful update.
Summary: The customer service is absolutely the worst I have ever experienced. After having had several Toshiba products, but not having had an issue, I had an issue with this one. For a simple question I could not get an answer for over an hour, their customer service simply could not care (& I am a pretty tech savvy person). Then I could not get the smart function to work.
Summary: When I first see this TV in the store, the image is not as bright as the 40inch Samsung or 42inch LG.Salesperson trying to convince me that toshiba picture quality is not as good as Samsung. But after reading all the good reviews on AMAZON, I decide to go for it. It take me some time (30mins) to go through wireless and other setups. Interestingly, the picture quality (mode) was preset in autoview, which is an energy saving mode.
Summary: After two years, my video started not to work... the TV had to "warm up' for a longer and longer period. I went online to find out what was wrong, just to find hundreds of people with the same issue. You may be one of the ones that keep your video, but if you like a "robust" TV that will last more than 5 years, you might want to check elsewhere.
