Died after 3 years.

  • Pros: Nice TV, while it lasted.
  • Cons: Black screen of death. No picture. A TV this expensive should last longer than 3 years.

Great TV!

Laura N., Newegg
20 April 2009
  • Summary: Was a steal at $799 with free shipping!
  • Pros: Picture looks great in 1080i (HD Cable). Sound is good but not as good as our Toshiba 32" CRT (less room I suppose).
  • Cons: Setup can take awhile with all of the settings. Settings sometimes revert back to original settings/change/etc. Still haven't found a way to show ALL DVDs in Full (16:9) instead of Natural (4:3). Not enough non-HDMI inputs for me (ran out of composite inputs).

Nice TV for the price

James F., Newegg
10 April 2009
  • Summary: I did not buy a top of the line tv. You can get better picture quality, but it was not worth the extra $600 to me.
  • Pros: I got this TV on sale from NewEgg. If you can get it less than $800 do it. The picture is pretty good.
  • Cons: The super resolution technology is not good. You will not notice much of a difference, but the tv is still a good set.

Awesome TV

Michael C., Newegg
26 March 2009
  • Summary: Awesome TV, great price on newegg.
  • Pros: Great Picture. Lots of inputs. I researched a lot before I purchased this tv. One article compared the best LCD TV's for under $1000 at the time, and this was their pick. Movies, Gaming, HD Cable, all look great on this tv.
  • Cons: Speakers are ok, but with a surround sound system that anyone should get if buying a tv this size, they become irrelevant.

Loved it but ....

Geraldine G., Newegg
26 March 2009
  • Summary: There was no warranty repair service within 50 miles of my area. Toshiba said they could not find anyone locally to cover the warranty work. Toshiba Customer Service tried to resolve the issue.
  • Pros: Loved this TV! Perfect size for my home. Stylish, easy to operate. Menu was easy to navigate. Easy set-up and access to plugins. Good picture quality and higher-than-normal sound quality. Sturdy stand.
  • Cons: Reaction to channel chages a bit slow but I can live with that. Hated the sticker placed on front of the TV. I don't advertise for anyone for free! Did not try to remove for fear of marring the TV case. TV went down within 43 days of purchase.

First LCD

Jason H., Newegg
26 February 2009
  • Summary: This was my first HD TV and I could not be happier. Although, I did research for about three weeks prior to purchase, price was always my baseline. I read the reviews and figured that this was the best TV for my dollar.
  • Pros: price, quality, ship time
  • Cons: none so far

So proud....

Anonymous, Newegg
26 February 2009
  • Summary: I actually found this same tv 10 dollars cheaper at a mom and pop store. 10 dollars doesn't go along way when it comes to my favorite online retailer. But I was more than happy with the fact that I didn't have to pay for shipping.
  • Pros: SRT! not sure if most sets have this technology but it makes it easy on the eyes when watching SD broadcasting. It does an amazing job with regular dvds, it practically upconverts it for you. I was beating myself up about not getting a plasma but after a few days I realized that it wasn't necessa...
  • Cons: Not worth mentioning!

Perfect TV for me

Kyle M., Newegg
23 February 2009
  • Summary: HDTV's aren't new anymore, so a lot of brands that may have not been top contenders in the HDTV market are now fully caught up and are more than worth a look. I have never though much of Toshiba in the HDTV market, but just in the last year they have put out some incredible products, and I've...
  • Pros: Out-of-the-box colors are pretty good. Obviously it's good to calibrate any HDTV that you get, but for those that aren't high-tech, you'd be plenty satisfied without making any adjustments to your color settings. The SRT technology makes standard TV look great, so don't worry if you currently hav...
  • Cons: It's not 62 inches. It's not 120Hz (almost all TV's under 50 inches you're not going to notice a difference between 120Hz and 60Hz, so don't worry about that unless you're looking for a 50+ inch TV). The remote acts a little sluggish at times, but I don't always notice it, and no one else that us...

Amazing

Zane H., Newegg
22 February 2009
  • Summary: Shipping was fast for it being free, I wouldnt waste money on the white glove delivery, as 200 bucks is a little pricey for just bringing in the TV and setting it up. One last thing..go Newegg!
  • Pros: Video: The Picture is amazing on both HD and SD channels, a lot of the SD channels look better on this TV than some of the Sonys I've looked at. Has some nice features like SRT, which is what makes the standard definition video look better. Audio: Sound is good for me and my family, but if you're...
  • Cons: none, everything is as expected
