Summary: I've had this TV for near 3 years now and it has a great clear picture! Even without the blueray movies, the picture still looks great! My brother comments on it, every time we watch it, when he visits! We have bought one 3D movie and it works great with the 3D glasses! The images come off the screen!! Love this television and definitely recommend it!
Very poor customer service by Toshiba never buy from them

Summary: Bad deal Toshiba 55WX800U 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz Cinema Series 3D LED TV, Black (Electronics) Never ever buy any thing from Toshiba. Real bad company to deal with I bought this tv in May 2011 and its broken got repaired 2 times still not fixed. Company customer service personal Mikalle really bad. I bought 4 glass and extended warranty by third party. Toshiba telling me that they cannot repair it and they will not replace it since they do not have any 55" TV.
Summary: I have been looking for a new HDTV for more than two years. I have tried VIZIO,LG,SANSUNG and have returned them all until this Toshiba HDTV. The Vizio had blurring on the 551 series which was because the 240hz didn't do anything and eventhought the picture had great blacks it wasn't life like. The LG was a 2008 model and wasn't anything fantastic and the 120hz didn't do anything either.
Summary: To start, we have a panasonic 58 inch plasma (S2 series) in the house, this is the standard we are measuring against. Once we unpacked the TV and installed the provided stand, we immediately noticed it was much more un-steady feeling than the panasonic, it would move/wobble when you would press the power button, (if you have a house that has much floor vibration when walking, you will notice it on the screen).
Gorgeous display, gorgeous picture, clouding ruins some movies

Summary: It's been awhile since I've used a Toshiba product. My last was an HD-DVD player, which I wasn't overly fond of due to slow load times and a clunky menu interface. I know that they make quality products, but don't have quite the glamor of Sony, Panasonic or Samsung. The TV set itself is gorgeous. The thin bezel and glossy, mirror finish makes for a very modern upscale look, along with its slim form factor. It looks stunning even when off.
Summary: I normally do not write reviews on products unless I feel utterly compelled to do so. I have to say, this tv deserves a review. First, I was replacing a tv that I was VERY fond of. I had a 50" Visio Plasma 1080p that I bought a couple of years ago and LOVED it every since. I plan on keeping it for many years to come. With that being said, it would have taken quite a bit to improve the quality and value that I found in that particular tv. I found it!
Summary: i researched these types of sets for months for the family. surprisingly there were hardly any reviews on the 55wx800u - none on cnet or other major review sites. since my family loves toshiba products (3 generations of toshiba buying family members) we decided to take the plunge on this tv. reasonably priced with a whole host of settings to customize your tv's picture, if you like to tweak. if not, you can choose from some nice presets.
Summary: I ordered this TV and the accompanying Blu-ray player and 3D glasses, primarily because it seemed to have all the bells and whistles, and I had such good experience with my "old" Toshiba 46HL196. After hanging it on the wall and hooking up to my TiVo (cable), DirecTV (satellite), The 3D Blu-ray player, my PC, my bluetooth audio to my hearing aids, and my network bridge, I began the setup. Everything went so well that I thought I had missed something.
Summary: Just upgraded from Hitachi Plasma 720p 42 inch. When I first got the Hitachi I did not think a picture could ever get better. Was in the market for an upgrade and spent a day looking at all the 50"+ LED TVs. Where the TV is set in the store makes all the difference in the picture quality and they have the mode set to brightest, sharpest, etc..., which you would not have in your home.
Summary: SELECTING: I was in the market for a new TV, but I had no intention of getting a 3D TV until I saw the sale Amazon had that included the Bluray player and glasses for $1299. Too good to pass up since I was going to spend close to that on a regular LED/LCD TV anyway. There were a few sales on Samsungs and Panasonics, but I chose Toshiba. The TV being replaced was a 3.5 year old 50" HD Toshiba DLP. That was a great product, so I decided to exercise a little brand loyalty.
