User Review

Andrew K., Newegg

  • Summary: After a few years this TV is still going strong, considering it was purchased at a 50% discount, this is easily one of my best purchases from Newegg.
  • Pros: Great TV. My first HDTV actually, truly mind blowing the difference between SDTV and HDTV. This TV was a great buy, you may not hear a lot about Toshiba as far as the whole fight for who has the nicest TVs, but this thing is a quality product.
  • Cons: None.

Great for the price

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I've seen people complain about UPS delivery. My set was delivered by UPS in perfect condition. I was not home for the initial delivery, and the driver came around again on the SAME DAY, said he figured I wouldn't want to wait or drive far to the UPS warehouse to get the TV. Awesome.
  • Pros: -displays crystal clear non-overscanned 1:1 1920x1080 from my HTPC -great picture from hi-def sources -480p Wii and DVDs look great -lots of inputs, rare on a budget set -can get a pretty good black level by tweaking the picture settings -can set picture settings per-input I've had the set for 7 ...
  • Cons: -once a month I'll turn on the set and the picture won't come on, and I need to unplug and re-plug in the set to fix the issue -off angle viewing gets whiter -VGA input doesn't go up to 1920x1080 -480i picture terrible (make sure your media player / cable box does the upconversion instead of the ...

Great HDTV for the price!

Charlotte H., Newegg
31 March 2010
  • Summary: Great investment TV for the price to add another TV to your house that won't cost an arm and a leg and still be solid picture quality.
  • Pros: Did a lot of searching around and this was the largest TV with the best features for the price. Lots of inputs and runs in 1080p at 60hz. Refresh rate is fine for gaming. This TV makes Bad Company 2 look amazing on 360, such a huge jump up from SD. 40" screen is bright and viewable from a wide an...
  • Cons: Colors seem a bit neon to me. Reds are a bit too high with no real way to lower them out fully to my liking.

No Regrets!!!

Kevin V., Newegg
29 March 2010
  • Summary: I've read reviews about this tv with complaints that the picture is pixelated or suddenly shrinks for no reason. The problem is the cable service, not the tv. As letterbox adds black bars for normals tvs, some broadcast content (mostly commercials) are not in HD or even widescreen.
  • Pros: Lots of inputs. BIG screen. HD looks awesome. A neat feature (that can be turned off) is when I put in a DVD or BluRay into my player, it automatically switches input from cable to BluRay. The various inputs can be labeled based on there use. The VGA input is NOT full 1080 res. I connected my com...
  • Cons: No picture in picture. I have my cable box connected through an HDMI cable. When powering the tv, it looks at the cable input first, then cycles through the inputs until it finds a signal. From power on to actually seeing an image takes about 15-20 seconds.

Love it

Cory M., Newegg
18 March 2010
  • Summary: I never thought of Toshiba as a great TV manufacturer, but this TV is exactly what I wanted and a lot cheaper than I thought I could get it for.
  • Pros: Price was great, picture quality is also very good. I saw this TV in a retail store before I purchased on newegg.com. I could not tell any difference between the other LCD tvs sitting right next to this one for very reputable brands. TV is also quite light, ~30lbs. I was able to easily mount the ...
  • Cons: Input panel could be a little more solid. Stand was kind of cheap, but not a problem for me since I mounted on the wall. (VESA 2.0 compatible). Speakers are also quite tinny, however I have external speakers so not a problem for me.

Beautiful computer monitor

Mark V., Newegg
18 March 2010
  • Summary: Connected via HDMI cable as the video card has HDMI out.
  • Pros: Bought this TV to be connected to my all-around gaming/workstation computer. The TV creates a wonderful display at full 1080p. Games are unholy beautiful through this TV. 3 HDMI inputs as well as composite, VGA, etc. Once the resolution was set correctly, text was clear and easy to read on this T...
  • Cons: Setup was a bit of a pain, mostly due to settings on both the TV and my video card (ATI Radeon 5850). Make sure you set the TV to Native settings on the Pic Size and that Scaling is set to 0% in the Catalyst Drivers. This applies to anyone connecting the TV to a recent ATI card. Default settings ...

great value

Christian B., Newegg
10 March 2010
  • Summary: Overall, I'm completely happy with this tv. Its a great value and has everything you could want in a hd lcd. It works great with my PS3 and has an amazing picture . Christian Bezirdjian
  • Pros: I got this TV after the price drop to $600 and coudn't be happier after considering Best Buys Insignia 40" 1080p for the same price. First, and most importantly, I would say the best feature of this tv is the amazing picture brightness and clarity. Furthermore, the menu to adjust the picture and ...
  • Cons: As others have mentioned, the volume could be a little more dynamic, but this is nothing some aftermarket component speakers and a receiver couldn't solve. It also has a brief 1 second or so delay where the screen goes black and will say "unsupported video signal" when changing between cable chan...

Better than expected

US S., Newegg
10 March 2010
  • Summary: I really am very pleased with this purchase. The picture is beautiful. I had it out of the box and working within 10 minutes. Allows me to connect just about anything to it.
  • Pros: Excellent picture. Easy Setup. Lightweight. Good connectivity.
  • Cons: Sound is average for a flat screen, but then again is there a flat screen that has good sound?
