Summary: Okay - I admit this is my first high-def widescreen television. I had a joke of a TV before I finally moved "up". I play a lot of video games and this television is wonderful for the graphics alone! Easy access for plug-ins, nice, clear picture quality - and it sounds great.
Summary: This is my second Toshiba LCD screen now, and it is lighter than my old 32 inch. It isn't thin as a LED screen, but it is fairly light at 33-34 some pounds. Picture quality is somewhat lacking, especially when I hooked it up as a HTPC.
Summary: At first I was dissapointed and felt the 40" was too large for my bedroom. It was mounted to the opposite wall about 10 feet away. I almost considered returning it. Now 30 days later I'm getting used to it and really enjoy the picture. HD is very different and the brain has to adjust.
Summary: If you are looking for a TV under $500 for use in a smaller room or bedroom this is a good deal (paid $463). The HD channels look great, the SD are comparable to other TVs in this range. The outside plastic is not as slim as Samsung TVs, but not too large either.
Summary: ***CHANGED TO 4 STARS AS OF 8/8/12*** The TV got buggy for a while (after about a year of owning it), something with the software, but after resetting the TV the software bugs eventually went away.
Summary: The TV is pretty good. The base is screwed in but it wobbles a little but. The image quality is pretty good (Sony and Samsung are better) but I had to turn off the Motion Vector alogoritm as it was generate a lot of stuttering when watching HD channels off cable.
