Summary: I looked high and low around West Michigan to purchase this exact model and brand, and much to my dismay no one had it. I ordered it from Amazon and Walts TV and I received the best possible support and the TV seems to come alive when you turn it on. Don't buy another brand or model.
(Update) Excellent TV. (Had a problem and Toshiba fixed it)

Summary: update 9/3/2013 - I had a problem with this TV about a year later and Toshiba replaced it at no charge. Toshiba listened to my issue and sent someone to my home to replace the defective product. My TV looks amazing and I am very pleased with the level of customer service I received.
Summary: This TV is one of the faster 55 inch TVs when set in game mode. I am currently using 2 of these and a samsung UN55C8000 in a 3 monitor Nvidia Surround setup with Quad SLI. Although there is a micro amount of screen lag between the 2 brands it is not enough that you can even tell unless you strain to...
Summary: Over the past few years I have upgraded all the TV's in the house to high definition, probably much like everyone else. This Toshiba was the last addition and not even near the most expensive. It has the best picture, with the most options and out performs the other three TV's by far.
Had this TV for a while and Like it. Good passive 3d.

Summary: I have had this TV for a while. It has worked great. Good picture and awsome passive 3d. This has a great picture and I believe mine has an LG panel. I would advise getting a proper calibration on the set to take of advantage of what it has to offer.
Summary: I've had this TV for just over a month now... Passive 3D is ok but I rarely use it, cool for the limited sports broadcasts (do not buy expecting to watch your favorite teams in 3D!) It didn't really look that great on call of duty for PS3 either, prefer it without.
Excellent picture and the 3D features are an excellent bonus

Summary: The picture quality on this set is absolutely amazing on everything from broadcast TV, Hulu, Netflix, and games I've played on the PS3. I've not noticed any "flash lighting" problems which is impressive because the entire TV looks to be nothing but screen.
