Summary: After having paid over $800 for this television set, the main board has gone out, 2 years later... I have taken the TV in for repair and found that the part that needs to be replaced has been discontinued. Called Toshiba for the last 3 days and get sent in circles. Bottom line is, the main board is no good and not replaceable. Planned obsolescence at it's best.
Summary: I purchased this TV about 2 yrs ago and now im losing video and audio. Contacted Amazon who told me to contact Toshiba who told me to contact Amazon. Never again am I buying a Toshiba,this was a waist of 600 dollars. Always thought Amazon stood behind what they sold but not in this case, very disappointed and I could have gotten the same customer svc from a chain store so back to best buy I go.
Summary: Bought this TV two years ago, and Boy am I sure glad I bought the extended warranty. about three months ago, my TV just shut off. no power no response from remote or anything. Then magically it comes back on by itself. I thought I was crazy. so it happened again. ok so I thought maybe it was because we turn the AC off, and like the outside air. It can get 80+ sometimes in the house, so I thought well, maybe the heat. I finally called it in to Best Buy.
Summary: Bought this TV just over 2 years ago. It worked fine, until one day it just stopped working. No lights turn on when I press the power button. I think it's probably a power board issue; the part number to replace the power board is PK101V2520I. I'll probably try that. I do not plan to buy another Toshiba.
Summary: I bought this TV new from Sears on Oct 2 2011. It is less than 2 years old, 11 months out of warranty. It goes off by itself every 10-20 minutes then comes back on a minute later. Researching the web I found this is a major problem with this unit and Toshiba will do nothing about it. Bottom line: I spent over $600 on a TV for 21 months of use. Toshiba...never again. If you would replace it, yes.....but your lack of empathy for your customers disgusts me.
Summary: I've used this for over a year now and the TV is holding out great. There are no dead pixels and the image quality is still superb compared to when I first got it. My only minor complaint is that there is inconsistency with the backlight. The lower corners seem brighter than the rest of the screen, this is only noticeable when the room is dark and there is a blank image on screen.
Summary: I purchase this tv for my bedroom and barely used it (nights if I was home). This tv had less than 100 hours of use. I went to sleep and turned it off one night, the next night when I attempted to turn it on the green light came on but the screen wouldn't light up. I purchased the TV on 11/29/2011, the tv took 3 weeks to get here (12/20/2011). The TV died on 12/13/12.
