42TL515U Now Awful

William C., Newegg
4 November 2015
  • Summary: Don't bother with smart TVs. Just stick with simple sets and hook up a $94 Roku 3 (or whatever the latest model is).
  • Pros: Was a great set for 2 years.
  • Cons: Stuff started deteriorating, gradually, like an organic product going rotten. First the Yahoo widgets stopped working, then a couple of the other smart TV widgets, then all of NET TV except Netflix. We were able to live with this as Netflix was all we cared about. Then about 6 months ago the unit...

Toshiba is garbage!!!!!!!

  • Pros: Cheap price $619.99
  • Cons: Toshiba is garbage! My tv just stopped working after having it for 2 years. Instead of them fixing it, I was given a number for a repair shop to fix it and I have to pay for it. I will just buy another tv and it sure as hell will not ever be a toshiba again!

  • Summary: Bought on sale at x-mas last year for 700.
  • Pros: Picture is excellent. 3D impressive although we do not use it very often. 3d glasses from the movies work with this TV (just in case you forgot to put it in the return bin) TV shipped quickly.
  • Cons: TV does not turn on immediately when the power button is pressed-5-10 seconds til picture comes on. Not a big deal to us.

  • Summary: i see that the tv's been DC'd from newegg. still wanted to write a bad review though.
  • Pros: amazing picture
  • Cons: at first it took a good 15 seconds to get the tv to actually turn on. after a few months it started taking longer so i would press the power button a second time which only made the tv turn on and right back off. lately it takes me a good 5 presses to get the tv to actually turn on. i have it hoo...

What would you pay for a tv?

  • Summary: What drew me to this tv was the price. I think if you wait you can get a pretty good deal on this. Yeah it's not a high end model however I live in Alaska and amazon sent it to me with free shipping. I could buy it down the street for 600$ so I had some savings for sure.

Had to RMA because of defects, but...

Brent J., Newegg
20 July 2012
  • Summary: It basically arrived like a piece of junk that you would buy from a thrift store for 30 bucks. Arrived in a blank, brown, ups box which had a crease in it too. Did not come in a Toshiba OEM box. Worst part is nowhere on the box did it say "fragile" and we are talking about a 42" LCD LED Television!!
  • Pros: Amazing looking screen when watching movies or playing video games. Dark colors are very dark and black is jet black, not dark grey like on LCD's. The image this tv produces is very crisp and clear and high-def when using it for movies and video games. Super, super thin. Comes with 2 pairs of 3d ...
  • Cons: Where to start? The front bezel that the screen is attached to is coming away from the backing at the top which produced about a 1/2 inch gap which is about 4 inches long and a real sight for sore eyes. This alone should have been a reason to not ship the item. I've concluded that the screen must...

  • Summary: For $250 less. I have a brand new TV, that is supposely refurbished. I was leary, of buying refurbished, until now.
  • Pros: Although the TV is refurbished, it seems brand new. I found no defects. All packaging was unopened except box, and so far it works, flawlessly. Excellent picture quality. 3D looks awesome.
  • Cons: None, so far.
