Pros Good picture. Use with a digital amplified antenna as I do not have cable and the picture quality was clear etc. Use it mostly for Home Entertainment..ie. Video games and watching movies/dvd 's etc. Very good picture.
Cons Cannot think of any.
Summary One bonus that I did find...by mistake..or I just lucked out is that it has connections to hook-up the tv straight to your stereo. This was handy for me as I do not have a "Home Theater" set-up and only have the old stereo system. So without to much to do...just hooked this feature up and viola...had great stereo sound output and made my own surround sound with what I had!
Pros HDTV picture quality OK; Good customer service.
Cons Noisy backlight; Poor SDTV picture.
Summary I bought this TV set at an online retailer last Thanksgiving without returning policy. If it was turned on with low speaker volume, you can hear very annoying high-pitch humming noise coming from the back of TV. Then I called Toshiba customer service, and they friendly offered exchange without any charge to me.
The second set was delivered to me promptly. The back noise is still there but less loud than the first one. I played with the backlight setting and found out that the noise is loudest at 100% backlight and lowest at 0% backlight. However, setting backlight too low is not good for viewing. I set it to about 60% to compromise between viewing satisfaction and noise tolerance.
I checked their floor models at Best Buy and Circuit City, and couldn't hear that same noise even if the backlight is set to 100%.
So I believe the sets I got are defective. I called Toshiba again, and they kindly offered me return with full refund (though the refund will be about 2 months after they pick up my second set). Now I am waiting for their pick-up.
For picture quality, I think HDTV program looks pretty good, and its ATSC tuner is more sensitive than my 2005 Sony HDTV's tuner. But the SDTV program from a satellite receiver looks blurry and worse than the same program showing on my Sony, a 60' LCD rear-projection TV.
Pros For me because electronics are like second nature, it was relatively easy to set up. I love the regza-link that allows it to literally talk to other toshiba products like my laptop or dvd recorder.
Cons Like most HDTVs the sound level is a bit low but easy to live with, it's plenty loud enough. If you aren't tech savvy it can be a little difficult to set-up, especially the regza-link. It only has 2 HDMI inputs.
Summary Toshiba has outdid themselves with this product considering all the features you get at such a low price. The picture is great and the sound quality is acceptable. I cannot believe it's only 720p at 60hz!! I also appreciate being able to name the inputs, satellite or game-console is a lot more user friendly than hdmi 1 or Color stream 2
Pros Great black levels, very vibrant colours, light, lots of conections, toslink audio out, support for dollby digital souround, can handle a 1080p signal
Cons None so far really besides my SD cable box giving a crap picture, but I don't really care seeing as I'm getting an HD digital cable box eventualy.
Summary I'm shocked at all the low ratings on here. I beleive I have a slightly different model though, but still this is a great tv. I was amazed, and still am, at the picture quality. It takes time to get used to actualy seeing a good picture. Although there could be more image adjustment controls, and settings I'm fine with what it has. I love how it has digital audio out so I can have my xbox games, and blu-ray movies play with souround sound. I've even used it to watch videos online and they looked good. It's light as well, and was extreamly easy to set up.
We'll see how the test of time is but compared to my old 32 inch Hitatchi CRT tv this thing is golden. It's better then my 42 inch Samsung LCD and the picture quality is nearly as good as my 55 inch Sony Bravia. For the price I don't think they get much better then this.
Pros The picture and sound quality was very good and for a new TV with Toshiba's quality history, on sale for $300.00 I couldn't pass it up.
Cons Not easy to set up. I had to go through two TV's while driving back and forh to two stores for a few days until I returned them. The channels werent working correctly.
Summary As I said the TV was picture, sound qualtity was good, however I went through two TV's. I went through the channel memory with no problem however it took awhile. When I first turned the TV on to a regular channel it was fine when I switched to a HD channel it was fine however when I went back to the regular channel there was nothing but snow when I switched back to the HD channel again there was snow, I had to turn the TV off then back on again to get the picture back. Next day I brought it back for another one at one of there other locations and I had the same problem. I have cabel vision and I didn't have any problems setting up my three other different LCD tv's.
I even called Toshiba they were going to send me out a chip to upgrade the software and they said that if that didn't work I would need to bring it in for service. I opted to return it to the store, got a Samsung for $79.00 more and had no problem setting it up. I think there is something wrong with this model.
