Summary: this LCD TV was like brand new out of the box. the downside is it was heavy, so if your going to lift it, call some help over. setup was simple with the many imputs in the back. once the TV was set up, it looked beautiful. the manual was easy to read and the TV and remote were a since to program. once the settings were taken care of the TV produce a very vibrant picture with good black levels and very lifelike colors.
Summary: I bought this TV because I wanted a quality product..This TV has a great picture and the salesman claimed it was the best Quality available but after 1 year the picture is black. $400 to fix it - BUY A SONY or go to Wal-Mart and buy a cheap flat screen. This does not seem to be isolated to this model but a Toshiba problem and Toshiba seems to look at is as the consumers problem.
Summary: This is a terrific TV. The HD picture is gorgeous. We had one possible issue with our Verizon FIOS service, and Toshiba sent a tech to check things out within about 2 hours of our calling (there was nothing wrong with the TV...it was a tricky FIOS installation in our older home). The controls are fairly easy to navigate (they allow for programming several peripherals), and the manual answers most questions.
Summary: I got this just before Christmas 06, was very excited when I got it. First 10 minutes were of sheer awe and happiness of a kind rarely duplicated. Then, I sat down to watch Lawrence of Arabia on it. Within about 20 minutes of the movie, I noticed that on the big desert scenes, or the sunrise/set scenes, I could see these strange gray bars/bands running vertically on the TV.
