... thought I'd submit a review because of all the bad reviews I saw
3 January 2015
Summary: Just thought I'd submit a review because of all the bad reviews I saw. I purchased this TV in December 2011. We use it everyday in our master bedroom and it has been very reliable. No issues at all!
Summary: I bought it last November (2013) from Best Buy for just $150, but with no stand. It was a showroom model, so I figured that it should be ok if the tv still working after who knows how many month in display. Beside, I bought the 5 years warranty just in case. You basically get a similar tv is something goes wrong. Well, still working fine after 13 month. For the price the picture is awesome. Of course, a high end tv will have a better picture.
I've had it 2 to 2-1/2 yrs and like it well enough to throw my review in since ...

Summary: I'm thinking of getting a Roku-2 for my Toshiba so I can stream Amazon Prime from my iphone to TV. I've had it 2 to 2-1/2 yrs and like it well enough to throw my review in since seeing the numerous terrible ones. I do have to say that I experienced a little of the tv turning itself off in the first 6mo or so but kinda think it was my setup...might have even been when I was only watching DVD's and non-cable tv.
Arguably the Worst investment... Stay away from this one

Summary: I don't know where to start with this TV... When you turn on the TV the picture takes a while to show up... when It does show it, it's pretty good...until a month later when it stops working. To top it all of Toshiba has one of the worst customer service ever... I still don't see how they are still in business.
Summary: This tv arrived with multiple complications. i reported it right away in email……. We got it to work eventually. It worked for a few days as i reported in a favorable email. But soon after, It demonstrated other issues with power source turning off and on. At times black out of both audio and video was experienced. This tv has been the source of much unhappy moments in the household. I regret using Amazon as a method of purchasing this Item.
Summary: This tv has a great picture, but I wouldn't buy a Toshiba product again. After 18 months, it started turning itself off by itself, then would come back on again after a minute or two. It got worse and worse, staying off longer and longer. Toshiba offered no help since the warranty had expired, even though this is obviously an issue with their tv. Don't buy Toshiba!
Summary: I had purchased my Toshiba at Best buy back in Feb '12 and absolutely love it. Toshiba is a respected brand name and I've owned various Toshiba products in the past. They were on sale at the time and my Best buy store was sold out. Mine was fresh from the box and put out on the display floor the same day I bought it.I have had no problems with it although I did purchase the extended warranty just in case.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS TELEVISION!!!!!!! My husband purchased this t.v. in December of 2011. It worked fine - nothing exceptional, not a great picture, not great sound. Then, suddenly, about one month ago, it wouldn't turn on! After reading all sorts of forums and trying a variety of things, it still wouldn't turn on. One day, after not even trying to turn it on for a week, I decided to hold down the "on" button for an extended time and it worked! Magic!
Summary: I should have read the reviews before I bought this from Tiger Direct. After only a month the TV fails to turn on. There are known issues with the electronics of it and Toshiba tech support is a voice mail maze designed to make the customer give up rather than to help fix the problem. Replacement parts are difficult for the 3rd party repair people to get. Do not buy this model of TV or for that matter, anything with the Toshiba brand.
