AWFUL on all but Blu rays.

 

AWFUL on all but Blu rays. I went with Toshiba because I had such great experience with their tube TVs. This is an unmitigated disaster on every front. Horrible broadcast and AppleTV results; terrible strobing and choppiness on even mildly fast motion....

Cheaper than other 55 inch screens

Horrible picture quality on anything but Blu Rays. Steaming video at 720 or 1080 somehow looks like garbage. Disastrous out-of-the-box settings; worst tv I have owned in 40 years

Great TV for the price point. No frills

 

All in all...i love this tv. I got it for a little above 1000. This TV does not offer the BEST picture every created...but for 55 inches at 1000 bucks...I cannot expect the best. Picture is still solid. Motion is still great most of the time. Blacks...

Price for 55 inch is unbeatable ; Simple styling (not to flamboyant) ; GOOD picture quality (i've seen better) ; Energy efficient...power bill went down 10 bucks ; Good blacks...high whites ; Dynalight is cool feature

Probably the only thing i absolutely HATE about this tv is...the sound. Its only 7 watts. Anyone who buys this tv will need a soundbar ATLEAST ; The 120hz looks like it bogs down a little in very high speed scenes

Toshiba 46sl412u is over priced for quality

 

I'm thinking of returning the tv and pay the restoring fee. First I'm going to check if there's a firmware update. I wouldn't buy this.

It's thin and looks pretty

Just bought mine at lower than reviews. I am still disappointed. It's not user friendly, menu options are limited. Picture is pixalated at all of my inputs (attena, pc desktop vga,desktop hdmi) and has no options in menu. Also while watching football, the

Terrible when compared to previous Sony!!

 

Would not recommend this tv unless you dont mind purchasing some type of external speakers or system, and in that case better to just buy a more expensive tv. Seems like many of the LEDs have this problem so either stay away from them unless your going...

Very thin and light weight, easy to install. Has 4 HDMI ports easily accessible at back

Picture is just so-so, not sure if we are just used to our previous Sony Bravia KDL46V5100 which was accidentally damaged. Settings are not extensive or really user friendly. There is some blurring especially when watching sports, which never occurred wi

Toshiba 40E210

 

I had no summary for this tv, the overall is that it's a great tv for it's price,

This tv surprise me for its price, the image it's so crips and clear am amaze when am watching my blue ray movies, and not only that this 40" tv it's great for gaming, it's smooth and I love the feature it has for the control delay for your gaming experie

Well the tv has a horrible interface, but nothing too serious, the control it's an ok control nothing especial, but the bad thing it's the audio, but I had no problem with it, I had some great speakers with surround sound, so I think the bad things can be

Perfect picture but poor sound.

 

Great picture if using coaxial cable or HDMI. VGA port sucks because it does not support above 1360x768. Poor sound and no analog audio out.

Picture is excellent and it is simple to use. The USB port reads thumb drives with JPGs and MP3s of any quality

TV speakers are very high pitched and not loud. VGA port only supports 1360x768. No analog audio out only optical audio out. Need to buy a DVI to HDMI and a optical audio cable

AWESOME PICTURE...sound not so much

 

I usually wait a few weeks before a review, but this one, the picture is that good. I'd already been aware of sound, but didn't realize how awful it was. I do have a set of speakers I am hoping will help but sheesh!!

Picture is amazing

Sound is pretty Tinny - kind of like a cross between a dirty needle on a 78 (for those of you who know what a 78 is... lol) and a phone line

My First LED

 

This was my first LED tv and I have to say that I am very happy with it. It has a great slim factor that I love! Compared to my other LCD I have in the house, its like night and day comparing the two. Good stuff

LED tvs have been known to have ghosting problems with heavy movement pictures, such as football and other sports. I do notice ghosting in the football when it's being thrown by a player, but I knew that was coming with going to an LED. Didn't take an...
