Summary: At first it took about 40 seconds to turn on. Now it only sometimes turns on. I have to keep trying. The volume button won't work a lot of the time. Color is good but the picture will change from filling the whole screen to just having a square. All and all I didn't make the best buy.
At first it looked amazing, but soon became frustrated...

Summary: Backlight bleeding, slow to respond clunky interface, and the TV remote all of sudden not working anymore ultimately resulted in my returning this defective product. Though there is alot of bang for the buck here, the fit and finish is sub-par and back light bleeding was very irregular and lacked any sort of uniformity. I picked up a Panasonic 50GT50 instead, and boy, was that worth the money!
Summary: it is very slow to turn on the TV, and change between channels, it's very slow. Picture quality is not as good as other brand,like LG which have similar price, but better picture. I don't recommend this TV.
Summary: I purhased the TV new in August 2011, in September 2011, I noticed their was something wrong with the sound, so I called the cable company out at least 5 times, the last time the tech cam out and changed the entire box and wires. So it was still happening so I called Toshiba, they gave me a number to call for appointment. The service tech came out on December 15, 2011 and found the problem was the sound board and the speakers. They orderd new parts.
Summary: Pros: - Excellent picture - Simpler 3D glasses - OK sound Cons: - When TV is at "centered" position on the base, the TV is at a 20 degree from the base (the centering detent is off that much in the base). Attempted to disassemble base to see what was up: 3 screws came out fine, the 4th was impossibly tight. So 2 strikes against Toshiba's quality.
