Summary: I had no problems setting up and connecting this LCD TV to my home Dish Network and to a LG bluray player that allows for streaming content from Netflix and other on-line sources. The picture quality is astounding, even when the video source is not 1080p, and the sound quality is good. Optimal sound quality should be achievable by connecting the TV to an external surround sound system, but I have not tried that yet.
Summary: I bought this Toshiba television based on research I had done regarding 40 inch tv's. I read reviews, spoke to friends and relatives and read the information in "Consumer's Report". From the research I did I came up with three possible choices. This Toshiba was one of the choices so when I saw it offered at an excellent price I purchased it. Our pocketbook has to be part of the equation. We have not been disappointed.
Summary: Gave this as a gift to my father. He has been using it for the last two weeks. Tremendous picture and I even like the semi-glossy screen. Good sound as well. Tigerdirect shipped it quickly and packaging appeared adequate. Let's hope the set doesn't get the problems down the road that others have talked about.
Summary: I love the 40 in. screen, this is my very first flat screen HDTV of this size. The color is sharp and clear. When viewing a TV show, the people are in full view, as if they are in the living room with you. I really appreciated this large screen when I was watching the golf tournment on Sunday.
