Summary: This is my second Toshiba 42 inch LCD. The first one was a refurb and it didn't last that long. However, the picture was terrific! Now for this model. I like this tv in every way except one.... The reflective glare on the screen is pretty annoying. The older model didn't have this kind of screen and I loved it. That said, I think this tv is a great lcd for the money! Great picture with great sound for well under a grand! Can't beat it.
Summary: My new 42" Toshiba HDTV is the perfect size for our room and cabinet. I had bought last year a 47" 2009 Toshiba from Best Buy for a larger room. The 42" is better in some ways but one problem is that it reflects glare much more than the older model. I paid so little for the new model it was too good to pass up. Thanks Amazon! You saved me at least $400 over BB. I set it up all by myself and I am definitely low tech.
Summary: PROS:GREAT TV FOR THE PRICE. EXCELLENT CONECTIVITY OPTIONS AND PICTURE QUALITY. SOUND IS VERY GOOD FOR ENCLOSURE SIZE. GREAT COLOR REPRODUCTION. CRISP PICTURE DISPLAY. GREAT PC DISPLAY.(DISPLAY SIZE VARIES) GOOD QAM TUNER. WEIGHT OF TV. CONS: SOFT PLASTIC(A BIT WEAK CONSTRUCION QUALITY BUT THEN AGAIN HARDER DENSER PLASTIC MEANS EXTRA WEIGHT THEREFORE IT COULD BE A PRO OR CON.
Summary: Let me be the first to say that I am not a techie. I am not an HDTV expert. I am a value-conscience consumer who was looking for a 42" HDTV for my living room. I was looking for at least 120Mhz, 3 HDMI connections, a TV that could hold its own in a well-lit room, and something that was easy to configure. After researching TVs for days on end, I had narrowed it down to a Samsung, LG and Toshiba.
Summary: I read a ton of reviews and looked at the Toshiba picture in a store before choosing it. The volume control of commercials works really well, and the standard resolution upconvert seems very good. For the money, I think the display and feature quality beat out Samsung.
