Summary: I have a 55 inch Toshiba 55TL515U Television bought a year and a half ago. It has two huge bars running down the middle of the screen and the technician that Toshiba gave me the contact info for says the panel is bad and to add insult to injury there is no replacement panel available even if I wanted to get it fixed.
Summary: The warranty on the TV expired on 11/17/2012 - one year after purchase. Yesterday the TV decided to start shutting itself of and turning itself on randomly. Also, after being on for more than 30 seconds it stops responding to any commands - no volume, no menu, nothing. Doesn't matter if you use the remote or the controls on the set. I downloaded firmware to a USB, but when it attempts to install there is an error message and then the TV turns itself off again.
Summary: We purchased this tv just after Thanksgiving of 2011 at our local Sears. It would not connect to the internet. When we tried, the tv locked up and we had about a 20 second window to get it unlocked after we turned it off and back on. We returned it the next day for a replacement. The replacement performed the same.
Summary: I got this for $1300 including taxes & shipping on tigerdirect.com. Pros: came with adapters to be able to still use the old rca & component cables. Has a 3.5mm audio jack & vga port so i can plug my computer directly into it. Very thin lightweight tv, i lifted & set this up all by myself. The ps3 plays 3d blurays & looks good on this tv, i prefer passive 3d like on this tv because there's no flicker & the glasses are basically free at theaters.
Summary: I have bought multiple thing on the internet including tv's and I have to say that Toshiba does not care about helping customers with their so-called customer support(more like customer frustration hotline). Not only do they sell defective product but their customer support is the worst i have ever seen!
Summary: Bad customer service by Toshiba do not buy any TV or you will not get repaired. This is one company who really do not care about customer. Not sure why Amazon carry toshiba TV. I bought one and they cannot rtepair it while under warrenty. Holiday time and its not working God know when it will work and they do not care.
