Great TV for price


I went to BestBuy and picked out the 27" Toshiba flat screen TV, for $473.00, after much research. The salesman pulled the wrong TV, and I finally noticed after I was watching it at home.

Nice TV for smaller rooms, but not perfect.


My plan was to replace a 16 year old 27" Sony that I moved to my bedroom a year ago after buying a 36" Toshiba for the living room. The Sony color had deteriorated badly and was unpleasant to watch.
