This T.v was my second choice. I got it for $1099 can dollars, regular 1399. I like the look of it, and it delivers! It looks nice, and It has a few new toshiba features like plenty of viewing modes (sports,movie,tv). Although rated as somewhat of a gimic, the SRT feature which upconverts DVD into "blu ray territory" seems to do a good job. Depending on the movie (for some reason). Swing vote with Kevin Costner, for example, looked pretty close to blu ray. There are 3 levels of that to soften the edges or sharpen them. The CNET review said that one CON of the this LCD was that it only had rear connectors, but that isnt true. Mine has an array of connections on the side which include a hdmi, composite. The back has 3 more hdmi's , 2 components, composite, s-video, vga, dvi, and coaxial.
The black levels on this TV are very good. As good as my aquos. As with most LCDs with good black levels, the colours seem a little saturated, but this is easily fixed with all the manual colour controls. I have high def Starchoice satelite, and it looks fantastic.
To be honest, one of the major reasons I bought this t.v was the sound. I was going to buy the LG, but its hidden speakers had virtually no volume. My parents dont like surround sound or stereos, so I wanted a tv to sound good too. This T.V sounds amazing.. really. I sit 12 feet away and watch it on level 40 (out of 80). The sound is loud, crisp, and warm (surrounding) I was very impressed.
If you want to plug in your laptop, unfortunately the vga/dvi input only supports 1280x1024. This shouldnt be a problem as most new laptops come with a hdmi port.
The t.v is big, and light, and performs really well. I highly recommend this product.
