Summary: I order the TV through Amazon but it arrived broken so I Drive 3 hours to Houston to get the same TV set after a week still not easy to use that's why I only gave her 3 start the picture an the colors are awesome haven't tried the 3d yet
Summary: Lots of issues. First, I did not receive "enhanced delivery" with placement and packing materials removal; in fact driver said he was not allowed to even cross threshold. Then, looking AT the box that wasn't unpacked and removed, I didn't see "3D" listed among the features, which was because I was sent the WRONG TV. The 65L9_4_00 I got is allegedly as better model, so after reporting error I elected to keep it rather than going thru hassle of return/exchange. SO..
Now I know why it was discontinued before they even released a replacement.

Summary: This is by far the worst TV I've ever bought in my life and this is not because of the picture but more because they tried to stuff all sorts of stupid features that just don't work. Pros -3D does work really well -Colors look good -Sound is ok -Lots of features That's where the pros end. Cons -Takes 30sec to 3 min to actually turn on to picture/sound FAR too long -Smart features or "Cloud" features are extremely slow not even usable because they are so painfully slow.
Can be had for under 3K$ to Get 4K and... Here are my thoughts...

Summary: I got a GREAT deal on this Television, got it for about 3K$. The Pros: Good Value for the Money. Aggressively priced vs all other 65" and plus 4K TV's. Solidly Put together, like if it was cast out of one piece of steel. If you can supply it a quality signal input (like supplying a true non satellite compressed 1080i signal), the 65L9300 upconverts and produces an impressive picture. 4K USB video is STUNNING.
Summary: I have owned this TV for nearly a week now and it is very sharp. The upscale of the full HD to UHD is nice and smooth but not noticeable enough on a 65 inch screen from 7 feet away. It still has the best picture quality of any TV I have ever owned. The internet TV features are pretty standard and not as fancy as the Samsung interface but it works just fine. Toshiba stills needs to add the HBO GO app along with many others but I am sure those will be added in time.
Excerpt: Resolution is great although there aren't many systems out there that support 4k, so the TV ends up umpsampling 1080p sources. It does a good job with this, although I see what looks like some graininess or noise. I haven't had a chance to play with all the options yet, and it comes with a lot of ways to manually tweak things. Setup was easy and it seems solidly built. Very small bezel and good styling.
Summary: The latest firmware update mostly fixed the lip sync issue. Still seems just slightly off, but it could be my imagination. The video processing isn't as good as one would hope with a new generation tech. I just watched the Hobbit in 3D. The picture was out of this world amazing. I would indeed give it a 4.5 if I could. Room to grow and hopefully future updates will improve some of the issues such as said processing and the crappy menu set-up.
Toshiba 4K TV 65L9300U incapable of displaying video "directly" from iPhone... requires USB stick download

Summary: I'm warning everyone across internet. The 4k Toshiba 65L9300 can NOT do video from a iPhone, Android or most other devices directly. Their "cloud" software can only display MPEG file format. iPhone for example does MOV. This tv also can not directly do avi format. Video has to be downloaded to a USB stick to display video other than MPEG. Toshiba "claims" that the tv can do video but don't tell you it has to be downloaded to a USB stick and played that way.
