Summary: This set is not built with the user who wants to go the reliable route of external sound systems that call for component cables--the only audio outpit it has is the TosLink digital output (for optical cable), and these ports sometimes has imperfections that make it impossible to plug the cable all the way in. Regular component jacks on the set would solve that problem.
Summary: I just got my Toshiba 46G300U3 a week ago. I love the picture and the sound seems just fine to me. However, mine will not keep any settings I choose in the menu and it defaults to antenna every time it is turned on. It's almost like each time I turn it on is the first time it's ever been turned on. I've tried to search online for answers, but have found nothing. If their tech support cannot help me, then I will return the TV and try another.
Summary: The TV set is decent, especially considering the price I paid. For some reason, I am less impressed by whatever HD quality - maybe I set the expectation too high. One things that really disappoints me is the "stand" - if you are wall mounting, hey, lucky you. Like other reviewers mentioned, the stand is so plastic and cheap, it feels like it can break or fall down given a little bit push (not a remote possibility when you have small kid running around).
Summary: I'm a toshiba fan. I own a toshiba laptop and it has been a great computer. However, I was disappointed with toshiba on the quality on this tv. The picture was as good as it gets, couldn't ask for better. The downside was the stand was made of flimsy plastic that felt as if it could break at any moment and the sound was extremely sub par compared to samsungs comparable tv. If picture quality is all you care about then this tv would be a good choice.
