Toshiba TV

David L., Newegg
5 November 2012
  • Summary: Overall good TV as long as you don't care about wireless or deep bass...
  • Pros: Great picture on this model. TV looks nice as well!
  • Cons: The wireless on this TV dosen't seen to work and has a really hard time detecting our home network. Sound quality on this model is poor. Seems sound was not a priority for this model at all.

Nice picture, needs sound

John R., Newegg
16 July 2012
  • Pros: Really good picture, and refresh. Good price at the refurbished amount, plus a discount above that made it $514.00. The remote died within a couple of weeks, so i had to get a new one.
  • Cons: dead remote. Need a sound bar to get good sound.

Poor quality No warranty service

alan h., Newegg
4 June 2012
  • Summary: Don't buy Toshiba. They may have slick commercials, but they are jerks all the same.
  • Pros: Nice picture, does lots of different stuff, can be used as a monitor
  • Cons: After 6 months TV will not turn off except by removing plug from socket. Toshiba will claim to have someone come fix it, but, they will never call and close the job. Toshiba will delay you around until the warranty expires and you have to pay to have it fixed.

Nice tv, bad firmware

Jason K., Newegg
20 January 2012
  • Pros: The TV is very nice picture wise, and very slim. Also it use very little energy.
  • Cons: The TV will freeze up and not respond to the remote or key pad. I have to regularly unplug it to allow it to reset in order to use the remote again. Very annoying when you get done watching a bluray or playing a game and the tv remotes not working so you cant turn it off. I also run audio through...

Amazing Quality

Arman M., Newegg
12 November 2011
  • Summary: This TV is the best deal on the egg currently, pair it with a tech craft black glass stand and it looks amazing!
  • Pros: This TV is gorgeous.. and I got it for only 529.99 you can not beat that.. with free shipping. The Wifi is fast and easy to setup, I stream netflix and its nearly as fast as using it on the computer, movies download in less then 10 seconds. The remote is really nice, I just have to learn to adjus...
  • Cons: None.

Beautiful LCD

Mark G., Newegg
25 October 2011
  • Summary: Great LED LCD but you will want to have or buy a surround sound system to go with it.
  • Pros: Picture Quality is beautiful.. Set-up and wireless set-up was a breeze. Lots of connection so you can hook any device to the TV. Only about 3/4 inch thick so wall mounting looks great! Great price at $549
  • Cons: Like the other say the speakers are not very good. HDMI input is ok if you turn the treble all the way down and bass all the way up... but the component audio is horrible! can't hear much even at full volume.

An altogether excellent television!

Drew S., Newegg
29 September 2011
  • Summary: Fast shipping. I love newegg always and forever.
  • Pros: This is a great set. First off, I got it at a steal from newegg- $545, what an awesome price. Set is really a beauty and the pics dont do it justice. The bezel is super thin, stand is tasteful, and its just plain pretty. Picture quality is excellent, as is the feature set. Nettv, netflix and the ...
  • Cons: Remote is a tad confusing, but I use a logitech harmony with it in lieu of the original. Also, sound is soso, but as the reviewers said, what can you expect with something so thin?

No one deserves five STARS

Chris W., Newegg
4 September 2011
  • Summary: Truthfully, I am 18 in college and have looked at many LED TVs that are available by various companies. I obviously could only by one TV and at this point i have no regrets at all. The picture quality is truly amazing for the price.
  • Pros: - Extremely nice picture quality. - Settings on TV are programmed very well for each device you connect. - Very attractive design ( Less than 1" Bezel )
  • Cons: - Sound Quality - Slow response time with Net TV apps. ( I do not mean internet connection speed)

Crisp like Corn Flakes

Tim M., Newegg
30 August 2011
  • Summary: Newegg was great as usual. Add some speakers and a boxee and you've got gold.
  • Pros: Having Netflix/Vudu/ect. built in is great, it almost takes place of a dedicated streaming box (more on that later). The picture is very crisp and fluid, it even makes non-HD sources look good. As far as I can tell the panel as pretty accurate as colors go. I did some adjustments but nothing major.
  • Cons: The speakers are terrible on this, but with a price this low and a profile this thin I wasn't expecting anything great. It is kind of acceptable for watching things with just dialogue, but any music really shows how poor they are. Definitely don't use the Pandora app without hooking up other spea...

great picture/horrible sound

Barry H., Newegg
24 August 2011
  • Pros: Love the picture, crisp and beautiful. Very easy setup, wireless was a breeze, very attractive unit at a very attractive price.
  • Cons: Now, with that said, who designed such a great product and let it out the door with this horrible audio. It should have come with a string and tin can attachment as I think that would be more clear. To make matters worse, the speakers project downward. No setting adjustments can clean this sound ...
