Summary: Cliff's notes version: The first delivery team was well below expected. The first TV was defective (stuck column of pixels). Clouding was really REALLY terrible. TV was swapped for a new one. Second delivery team was good, although the admin/router that initially called me to schedule delivery was rude and obnoxious. Second TV in perfect condition. Very minimal clouding. The detailed version: The estimated Delivery Date was a Thursday.
Summary: Okay, I reviewed many types of t.v.'s before coming to the conclusion that this was going to be the set for me.I ordered it and it arrived one week later, and I was happy. Took it out of the box, and wow, what a gorgeous t.v. I was surprised by how modern it really looked. I then turned it on, set it up, connected it to my wifi network, and cable box and was ready to go. Set up was as simple as it can get, and I say that as a woman! The picture quality is great.
Summary: All these new TVs coming out have so many different features that I personally couldn't care less about. I browsed God-only-knows how many TVs and customer reviews with conflicting reports on quality and reliance. I ended up buying this one because it was the right size and type for the right price. My use for the TV is simple, I want to play my PS3, watch Blu-Ray/DVDs, and Sports/TV. On all those areas, the TV works well at.
Summary: I received this TV set yesterday and have played it whole day long. * PROS - Beautiful design - Superb bright room 2D picture quality - Nice Netflix picture quality * CONS - Super reflective screen - Clouding - Subpar shadow detail - Crosstalk in 3D - Useless DLNA feature - Cannot adjust picture setting on Netflix app During the daytime, my wife and I had been pretty much satisfied with its picture quality.
Summary: This is my first review for Amazon...I felt like I had to inform other potential buyers. Pros: - The picture quality on the set is excellent* in my opinion (exception below) - When the 3D works, it is pretty cool. - Visually, the set is very nice looking. Cons: - There is HORRIBLE ghosting on the set in dark scenes. I don't know how to attach an image onto this review, but if you navigate to avsforum and search for the 55WX800U thread, you'll see a picture of my set.
Summary: The picture clarity on this tv is amazing, the 240hz really makes a difference! I am using a PS3 as this tv does not have 2D to 3D converting. I have played four 3D demo games and 3 of the 4 had a significant ghosting, even after trying to switch the 3D modes (top-bottom, side-side). You still get the 3D effect; but if I had to choose between playing in crisp 2D and double visioned semi 3D, I would choose to play in 2D.
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.
