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!
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: 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.
Summary: This is the best TV I have ever owned! The 3D feature worked great on Tron Legacy. Side note - I turned off the 240hertz refresh rate for regular TV because it makes everything move too fast for me.
Summary: I bought this when it was on sale a few months ago, and have enjoyed it ever since. I didn't run into any of the technical (ghosting, connectivity) issues that others have experienced. Picture quality is superb, and the TV itself is very aesthetically pleasing. A few things to note- 1- As other reviews have mentioned, this is a very glossy, not matte, screen.
Summary: Back in 2002 I purchased a top of the line Pioneer Plasma for $4.3k for my den and last year I purchase a 40inch LCD for the bedroom for 1.0k. Even thought its many years old, the Plasma holds its own, but I was due for a new den TV and when Amazon offered this deal to me, my wife told me to jump on it and I did. The screen is huge, the 2D picture is breathtaking with live HD. 3D is fun to watch and very enjoyable!
