Summary: I got this TV dirt cheap on my opinion for $345 at Mardens (a Maine discount store) it has great pictures and my TV shows and movie look great. I have one thing I don't think which is when the TV is black all four corners have a light that shines on the screens and the black is milky, however this is not noticeable if your not on a blank black screen. The picture can be choppy but I fixed this with a few setting changes.
Summary: Regarding the sound, the speakers ARE on the back and will give you muffled sound IF your TV is mounted on the wall. Mine is in a corner on the stand and the sound is fine. Picture colors are terrific. I am having some issues with choppy HD display in fast-moving portions of scenes. Probably why this TV is inexpensive. Although it may just be my cable box... Spend an extra $200 and go with an LG or something better. I should have.
Summary: First, I would like to say that I have 3 Toshiba HD TV's. So I am not Toshiba bashing. But here are my issues with the 46uL605u which I purchased in December: The screen is "splotchy" the screen does not go black...it appears that there is a flashlight behind the screen causing gray areas about the size of my hand throughout the screen area. In bright sceens, the picture is great...in dark sceens...you can easily see the uneven, gray lighted areas....looks "milky"...
Summary: This TV has an amazing picture but the sound stinks. It is so bad that they replaced the 1st TV we ordered. The 2nd one is a little bit better but not much. It hardly has any bass. When we hooked our surround system up to it there was quite a delay...so you either listen to sound that sounds like an old fashion radio or you listen to great sound that doesn't match the picture. If they would fix that it would be an awsome TV.
Summary: Got this TV for about a week. Set up is a breeze although I soon realized an upgrade of my home theater is needed as this TV is quite advanced and only comes with the latest input/output jacks - this makes my 10-year old receiver instantly obsolete so I went out and bought a new one for the TV! Sound quality from TV is mediocre but once I hooked it up with the new receiver, the difference is like day and night and I'm quite satisfied.
