Summary: This was my first TV post college, and I have to say I'm very satisfied. Its a great value buy for someone looking for something to last, but at the same time definitely not a videophile's first choice.
Pros: Great size to price ratio. Good quality at price range.
Cons: There are two separate options for dynamic brightness/ contrast, neither of which work particularly well and can be hard to find in the menus to turn off.
Summary: I own the 37RV525R which is the 37" Version of this TV, Purchased at NewEgg, Shipping was fast and the TV arrived undamaged, although the box did had a fist size hole in it, I was Lucky there.
Pros: Great Picture, Accurate Colors, Great Price, Has both Digital and Analog Audio outputs, 4 HDMI, Speakers are good, not great, I can also use it as a computer monitor and to watch streaming HD from Laptop to TV via HDMI. Has a Native Mode.
Cons: Piano Black finish scratches easily, use only a microfiber cloth to clean. Remote has to be at the right angle to work. No other real complaints.
Summary: Before purchasing this TV I bought and returned the 40" Sceptre due to dying pixels. But while the Toshiba is no doubt a higher quality TV, the picture of the Sceptre when connected to a PC was noticeably clearer.
Pros: -Nice shiny bezel. -Great HD picture for the price range. -No dead or lit pixels. -Easy to configure settings.
Cons: -Displays at a low resolution through VGA. I could not find anywhere that it mentions this on the box. So, its a bit dishonest on Toshiba's part. If you want 1920x1080 you must connect to your PC via HDMI. -You have to point the remote near the center of the screen to get it to do anything.
Pros: Works well out of the box Handles QAM channels off of Denver's Comcast fine, decent performance with analog inputs for gaming (Wii 480p, X360 1080p) and HDMI (PS3) Low weight
Cons: Had to go to Toshiba Europe to find the firmware updates Doesn't offer 1920x1080 resolution via DDC on the analog VGA inputs Overly complex add-remove channel UI, doesn't let you force "pic size" to "Native" all the time
Summary: For all the complaints I have, this was a quality buy. I got way more than expected. I had to download better codecs for videos running off of my computer. I've had this a month and am still saying wow and this was completely worth the price.
Pros: -Very good picture -Colors look good after adjustments -Lots of inputs -Large size screen
Cons: -Slow response rate from dark to light screens or visa-versa -Sound needs improvement, decent on standard TV, but has little to no bass, and is bad at loud volumes. I would recommend a sound system taking advantage of the optical out or directly from your input devices. -Makes VHS look like garba...
Summary: I am very pleased, hooked up the following to the TV: HDMI: M1530 XPS Laptop Radeon 5770 Video Card Playstation 3 Slim (CEC controls work) Component: Playstation 2 S-Video: Gamecube Ant: Digital Cable signals Everything appears great, extremely pleased. Gaming works without ghosting or artifacting.
Pros: This is a follow up to a previous review. This TV works great, there are a few issues, but for the price (450 around BF) it was a great buy. Great screen Gaming Mode works Great Native mode to get rid of Overscan Inputs aplenty Upgradeable Firmware (Followup: the firmware on the canada site is ac...
Cons: If using a Gaming system, the gaming mode disables all special video features, but reduces lag by a noticeable amount. This also applies to optical out to a sound system. TV can only output Stereo or Stereo based dolby PL 5.1 emulation audio. Can't decode DTS or true Dolby Digital signals Optical...
