Summary: I initially bought a 56hm168. Within one year, both the lamp exploded (glass all over) AND the light engine died. Toshiba replaced the TV with a 57hm167. A year and a half later - the light engine dies - and this time it is out of warranty.
Summary: Got it in Aug. 2007, wish I would have looked here first. I didn't use it much, mostly for games and movies, not much television-watching. Tried to turn it on last night, and the screen wouldn't turn on.
Summary: I can't write a glowing enough review for this tv. Yes, I have a few minor quibbles... Silk Screen Effect being the only one of significance (not that significant,really) but all in all, this is a fantastic set.
Summary: This tv has great picture quality, though not quite as good as some of the other top tier tvs in the same segment, the price more then makes up for that being a few hundred dollars cheaper. I have all three consoles hooked up and all look great.
Summary: We got the TV on Oct 04, 07 and it stopped working the next day we tried it on. The lamp went completely dead. We are returning this Toshiba TV right now. No hesitations. You just can not tolerant the fact that after spending $1200 on a TV, it is broken directly out of the box!!!
Summary: Bulb went after 8 days. Called Toshiba Customer Service, they sent a new one immediately, returned the defective one in a prepaid box. Replacement was really easy, start to finish maybe 30 seconds. Despite the problem, this set is a great value. Awesome picture, all the features you could want.
Summary: The Pro's Great picture, HD and NOT HD channels, multi 1080p native inputs (3, which no other tv under 4 grand has) Easy to use and move. The Con's I too, had the lamp go out after about 2 weeks. Toshiba had me look up the serial #, but they sent me another lamp 3 days later.
Summary: This was our second Toshiba in a row and the second one we've had major problems with. 31 days after purchasing it, it quit working. It's now been two full months with no repair. Toshiba claims the "part is back ordered"- for two full months.
Summary: I purchased this TV in early April. After having the TV for 35 days the lamp went completely dead. I requested service from Toshiba who claims that the necessary items (lamp and light engine) are on back order and then can't tell me when they will arrive.
Summary: I was looking for a good price on a 1080p tv. The Toshiba TALEN 57hm167 DLP was the best value I could find. It is 57", very bright, and does 1080p. I play XBOX 360, watch some tv, and occasionally watch movies. I have spent the most time so far playing XBOX 360. Video games look awesome on this tv.
