Summary: Was initially happy with this TV. Great pic and ok sound. Now after owning it for 2 yrs. Any color red constantly jumps in the pic and there is an EXTREMELY annoying high pitched squeal coming from the TV....all......the....time! I will NEVER buy a Toshiba TV again.
I've been ripped off - Stopped working after one year with minimal use.
12 August 2013
Summary: I didn't buy this tv from Amazon. Instead I bought it locally at an appliance store and put it on credit. After one year with minimal use it died. I was told today the price for repair is 500.00 for a main board. I am not sure if I should even invest that type of money in this garbage. From reading the other reviews it's apparent, Toshiba really has brought a white elephant to the market. I feel violated and sad.
Summary: We are so disappointed with our Toshiba. It seemed like a great deal, we should have know better. We have had the TV for 2 years now and we have never had a tv so frustrating before. The infrastructure of this tv is awful. 1. It take a long time for the tv to just turn on. After pushing the power button it has to "think about it." 20 seconds later the tv might turn on and it might not, you never know what it going to do.
Summary: Purchased this TV in December of 2011. The first thing you notice is the audio, or lack thereof. This tv is unwatchable using just the internal speakers. The picture quality WAS great. If you noticed my use of past tense it's because the tv won't turn on now. It is 2 months past the year warranty, so Toshiba is of very little help. They offered to trouble shoot via telephone for $45, and nothing else. This is my first review written for Amazon, induced by frustration.
Summary: The Bad: The picture on this set is Ok, but there are much better LED pictures out there. Plus the led back lighting is splotchy and causes light and dark spots on the picture. especially noticeable when the screen is darker. The Worse: Toshiba Smart products all seem to have had a serious firmware problem that they have not fixed.
Summary: Good & bad about this product ... but the bad greatly outweighs the good. First the good: the 46SL412U HAD a very good picture. Now the bad: this TV's main module went bad (no video) after we owned it for less than 16 months. So it was less than 4 months out of warranty. Toshiba's customer relations would do absolutely nothing about this. Apparently keeping customers is not a priority for Toshiba.
Summary: After loosing everything in a home fire last year, I purchased 2 Toshiba 55" LCD 1080 P flat screen televisions. After 8 weeks I noticed that the picture would fade in and out. I turned the auto light censer to off and it didn't fix the problem. I contacted the co. I purchased it from, they came out looked at the problem and took the tv. The authorized repair shop ordered the parts and they were told the parts were on indefinite back order.
Summary: It was a great TV for about 6 months and then it broke down, I was not able to go the internet or watch netflix. I called Toshiba and they said they will repair it but the parts have been on back order for 3 months. When I escalated the case Toshiba case manager Josie (Boy! she was full of attitude and their policy does not allow you talk with their manager), Toshiba warranty states that they will replace it with another unit and that does not mean a "NEW" tv, they...
