Summary: After one year of trying to get this TV to work, and multiple service calls I am left with a device that takes over 40 seconds to turn on, has to have the video input changed to get it to display any input including the one it was on at the time, none of the network features work and has to be unplugged every week or two to even function at this level. The problems were in the unit from the day it came out of the box but Toshiba stated DO NO REPLACE on all repair orders.
Summary: My family and I were really enjoying this television until it stopped working. The left half of the television has a ghost-like white film over the picture 10 months after we bought it. One year warranty so assumed it would be fixed or replaced. Toshiba is longer making this model and does not have the replacement parts. Beware if you are thinking about purchasing it.
Summary: I will never again buy a Toshiba product of any kind and never again buy something like this from Amazon especially one of their "killer" deals! Ten months in, the "Power Board" (circuit board that controls the main power) went out. Fixed under warranty only to have it go out again a month and a half later!
Summary: No resolution since June 2011. I have 60+ hours with Toshiba tech-support trying to get the internet to work on our tv. Their 3rd party tech support has came to our house and replaced the "board" three-times to learn they have been sending the wrong part, with still no resolution. But at least they speak English unlike Toshiba 800-tech-support-BTW I speak English and Spanish. We have been able to watch tv just no netflix or internet apps (which was why we bought the tv).
Summary: I received this TV about two weeks ago. Out of the box, the screen had smears, finger prints and streaks. I went to Best-Buy and got a "Monster" screen cleaner for $22.00. It came with a special cloth to clean TV screens. Very carefully, I tried to clean my new TV's screen with it. No such luck. Nothing I did removed the smears or the streaks. This damn thing cannot be cleaned even with a special screen cleaner. When the TV is on, you don't notice any of it.
Summary: The first tv shows up completely shattered in the box. Thank god I opened it. It was returned and they sent a new one within 6 days. For the average Joe who watches tv from time to time for the price you cant beat this deal. $1,500 for a 55" led 3d with a blu ray player and two pairs of glasses is unreal. Now I realize how they were able to sell these for so cheap. This is totally a you get what you pay for tv.
Luego de casi 3 meses recibo el TV con la pantalla partida

Summary: Length:: 0:21 Mins Finally after nearly 3 months I have received today the Toshiba TV. In appalling conditions where I could not get out of the box to cut risk by the number of fragments matches the TV screen. I would like to receive your comment and procedures to solve this problem the best way possible without incurring any complicated legal process. Waiting for your comments, I say goodbye.
Summary: This TV is quite flaky. I had to return back to Amazon after a couple of weeks. 1. No video after turning on the TV. I would hear the audio, but no video. I had to turn off-and-on the TV 4 or 5 times to finally get the video to come on. This is very frustrating. Apparently, this is a known problem to Toshiba. If you go to their website for support, they are suggested unplugging the power cord, wait at least 30 second before turning it back on. 2.
Terrible clouding - the worst of any LED. 2 TVs died already also

Summary: Been waiting and waiting for this TV for awhile now (CEVA is sloooow) and it finally arrived yesterday. I was massively disappointed when I turned it on. Our 3 year old panny blows the pants on this one and this is the very best of Toshiba 2010. Pros - Price. - Looks. It's very pretty. - Delivery was quick (under a week) Cons - Picture Quality. This is probably the worst picture quality of any 3D TV I've seen yet. My family owns a Samsung C8000 and its way better.
