Summary: I initially liked this TV very much, bought it Christmas 2008. Around 2 years later noticed flickering in lower right screen, and 3 horizontal lines equally distributed across the screen. When the set warmed it this seemed to go away, but I figured eventually it wouldn't.
Summary: After 14 months of use we started getting a double vision, triple vision, etc. on the right half of the screen. After 20 minutes or so it would clear up. It gradually got worse until we finally took it to an authorized Toshiba repair service.
Summary: This is one fantastic TV! I have had it for about a month now and have enjoyed every minute. The picture is sharp (really deep blacks) and the 120Hz technology really does make a difference. I was amazed at the lack of pixelation, especially when watching sports and blu-rays.
Summary: I've purchased refurbished items in the past and have always had good luck with them. Though with this item I was a bit worried since it is my most expensive refurbed! Let me say that I wasn't disappointed at all! Item was totally brand new and it had tons of features.
As good for less, Toshiba has out done itself again!!

Summary: 2nd Toshiba tv, have never been as happy as I was with this purchase....saved $400 instead of Sony or Samsung and got a 120hz hdtv that rivals the performance of the biggest brands!! I researched tv's for months and you can't go wrong with this one.....
Summary: After viewing it in the store and for a week at home, I cannot find anything wrong with this HDTV...and it is my 3rd generation, following a 55" Mitsubishi/CRT and a Mitsubishi 52"/DLP. I have cable, but have a back-up, indoor antenna..
Pros: Excellent brightness, color, and sharpness Excellent motion interpolation
Cons: Unless "detuned"...reducing sharpness and increasing digital noise reduction...makes bad transmission and old noisy SD pictures look worse.
Summary: This set is performing well. The white glove delivery set it up and all I had to do was set back and enjoy. Wasn't sure about ordering a television of this size online, but I would have no hesitation about ordering anything of this size again.
Summary: I purchased the Toshiba 46XV540U at my favorite volume wherehouse store for $1199 one week ago. I originally planned on buying a Panasonic 42" 1080p Plasma, but after discussing Plasma panels with some video engineers at work, I was NOT convinced that it would be free from image retention (burn-in),...
Great TV! But......Why hasnt anybody noitced this flaw?

Summary: I purchased this T.V. at Costco. They have the best return policy and add an additional 2 year warranty at no extra cost! This T.V. is everything people have raved about. No blur effect, deep colors, real blacks. Can handle speedy images no problem.
Summary: I rate it on par or slightly below the Sony and Samsung ($400+ more), but a step ahead of the Sharps. I currently have a Sharp Aquos 32" LCD as well. I bought our Toshiba at Costco for $1199 (w/3yr warranty) after going there to get a 47" XVT Vizio.
