Summary: I agree Not great for standard-definition viewing, but it comes into its own with hi-def. I have had this set since october 2006 with no problems, what I have found is after 6 to 9 months you will start to see the faint black line down the middle of the screen just search on the web you will find a lot of people have the same problem, also the 42/47 inch are now discontinued. (surprise, surprise). Have tried to email toshiba but you get no reply.
Pros: HD is great
Cons: The faint black line down the middle of the screen
